A smooth and easy process to schedule, the photo shoot was relaxed and ran right on time, and I got my photos with touchups right away. Thanks for a great job!

I will be a return customer. Nabor was very professional, responsive, encouraging, patient and kind. My daughter enjoyed her photo shoot, and Nabor made her feel very comfortable. We received the finished product within a couple of hours.

There are so many good things to say about Lawrence. He's very kind and patient. I never met Lawrence until the day of our engagement shoot due to us living in another state. When we met he made us feel so comfortable and told us some really funny and interesting stories about his photo shoot experience with other people. He took us to many places around San Francisco and really knew his way around. The day of the wedding was crazy for us but Lawrence stayed calm and patient. He was there everywhere I turn trying to catch the important moments and that's what I liked about him. We got our pictures really fast too! I really recommend Lawrence. Thank you so much again.

We did a maternity photo shoot with him and we loved it! Even with our 17 months toddler with us, he managed to get beautiful pictures and work things out! We're looking forward to work with him in our future photo shoots too. Highly recommend!

I am writing my review before I even receive my pictures from Cindy. She was the photographer at my son's very small intimate wedding at the UC Botanical Gardens and The Claremont Hotel. She was there waiting for us when we got there. Already had scoped out the place for good photo spots. From the start she took control (in a good way)! She was so relaxed and helped everyone feel comfortable. She was always aware of her surroundings and never in the way. She took a lot of pictures. Some I saw on her camera and I cannot wait to see the rest. She will be doing some more photo shoots for us very soon. What a find. She is a gem.

We got married last month, and are so happy with how wonderful Ruben and his team are. Ruben is extremely responsive and professional and goes out of his way to capture exactly what you are looking for! We hired them for video, photo, and photo booth and they were so easy to work with. We were able to see all our photobooth pictures the next day as promised. I highly recommend Sybex Studios for all your video/photography needs, book them ASAP!

Tri is an excellent photographer. He's really good at working with people who've never done a photo shoot before, but he also has an extensive portfolio of very professional work. He was extremely good and efficient at setting up the shoot to get the results I was looking for. I would love to work with him again and I highly recommend him!

Andrea was very helpful through the entire process of my engagement photo shoot. She helped me plan the photo session, she arrived early to pick out the perfect location and was very flexible in accommodating my schedule. She also provided copies of our photos the next day and all of them had been professionally edited and looked amazing. Highly recommend using Andrea for any photography sessions.

My fiancé hired Steve to photograph his proposal, and it was magical. A day that I will never forget, and thanks to Steve I have beautiful pictures hanging on my wall to show off. Very professional and worked well around my restless and rowdy toddlers! Pictures were ready for review within hours not weeks, and I had the prints in hand not long after as well. Would highly recommend and will be hiring for our future photo shoots as well! 10/10!

I have worked with Tri for a year and a half on a number of photo shoots. He's always professional and possesses excellent photography/photo editing skills. After a shoot, he promptly provides proofs for the customer to review. I highly recommend Tri for portrait, fashion, sports and corporate photo shoots.

Allan took my daughter's senior photos. They are beautiful! She wanted a beach backdrop and he suggested several locations. He took time to listen to her and had a lot of great ideas to make the shots special. Setting the appointment, the photo shoot, and getting the photos was incredibly easy and a fun experience. We love the photos!!!!!

Tri met me for a photo shoot of my Jeep Wrangler. He was outstanding to work with. Showed up early, had all the right gear, really knew his stuff, and had endless passion and energy to get all the "right shots". We even shot 3 or 4 different venues at his suggestion -- far above and beyond what I would have expected. Also just a good, genuine guy that is a pleasure to work with.

I hired Nicholas to film my Hindu wedding on a Sunday morning at Livermore two months ago. He was punctual and professional, ready with all his equipment in tow. Since there's no rehearsal for a Hindu wedding, I myself wasn't sure where he needs to stand or even go, but Nicholas was able to figure it out once in the event hall. After two weeks, we received the hard drive that held all the raw, unedited footage which is what I wanted and downloaded it onto our external drive. This took awhile for my husband and I to do, but Nicholas was extremely patient with us and reassured me it was okay to take our time. Once every clip was downloaded, my husband and I watched the unedited footage and relived our wedding day through Nicholas' eyes and filming, and it brings tears to our eyes to see the close-up of our expressions, the traditional clothing we wore, and marriage items on the stage. Nicholas also surprised us with still photos of our day even if he wasn't our paid photographer. In addition, the email and texting communication between Nicholas from start to end was prompt, and he was enthusiastic about filming his first Hindu wedding. I am also grateful that Nicholas worked within our budget and stayed the entire day from 9-2pm; he works for the passion of filming, and the money is secondary and I appreciated that commitment. He simply wants everything to be perfect for the bride and groom, and stress-free which it was. I would highly recommend future customers to hire Nicholas to film their special milestones in their lives.

Meeta clicks awesome pictures and is a thorough professional. We hired her to do maternity photo shoot for me and my wife. First, she gave us some basic tips on preparing for the photoshoot (like kinds of clothes that look good in photos) and suggested a few locations. On the day of the shoot, she was on time and well prepared. She had scouted the park before so she knew what were the good locations for pictures. What I really liked was that she seemed personally invested in getting good pictures. She made suggestions about poses. Ahead of time, we had sent her a few pictures from the internet to give her an idea of what kind of pictures we were looking for. She had studied our request in detailed and meticulously recreated the poses for us. At the end of the photoshoot, she mildly edited the pictures (like cropping and adjusting color tone and brightness etc.) and gave us all the pictures (more than 200) from the 2 hour long photoshoot. I highly recommend Meeta, esp. if you are looking for a fun-filled photoshoot.

Jean-Paul was a perfect photographer for our daughter's Sweet Sixteen. I contacted him last minute through thumbtack (a week before the party) and he gave me an amazing deal that didn't compare to any other quotes I got. He responded quickly, showed up early to the event and was very kind professional and attentive throughout the event. He took many photos, and got back to me with pictures only a couple days after the party. Let me tell you- the pictures were beautiful and captured each moment perfectly. We will definitely be calling Jean-Paul again!

Working with Catey was fantastic! She's a ton of fun to be around, extremely personable, and is a well-seasoned photographer. After hearing our ideas for our engagement and wedding shoots, she scouted potential spots for us, and had a great game plan to help us capture the best shots. We are extremely happy we found Catey, and she would absolutely be our 1st choice for any other occasions we'd like to have professionally photographed. We only hope that when the time comes, she isn't too busy to fit us in! Thanks for everything, Catey!!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much does it cost for a photographer for a wedding?

Finding the right wedding photographer can make a big difference for your ceremony. Nationally, the average wedding photographer’s price ranges from $800 to $1,000, but costs can be much higher in areas like Chicago, New York or Los Angeles where some couples spend $2,000 to $5,000 or more for the photographer they want. Factors that can affect your wedding photographer prices include the photographer’s reputation and experience. Heavy hitters can command top rates, especially during wedding-season weekends. Day of the week also affects your cost. You may get a $200 discount on wedding photographer prices if you get married on a Friday in November rather than a Saturday in June. Time onsite is also an important cost factor. Hiring a photographer to snap photos from the moment you wake up until after last call at the reception is going to cost more than five hours of pictures during the day. Multiple photographers, special lighting, and videography will also increase your costs. Ultimately you want to find someone who has a style you love and can provide the number of edited shots you want for a price you can handle. Learn more about hiring a wedding photographer.
