I have nothing but wonderful things to say about Will Hartman and Desert Photography. Not only did I feel comfortable but I had fun during my photo shoot. He is a true professional, as well as creative! I felt secure and relaxed. Also, one thing that you will have a hard time finding elsewhere, is that Will made sure that I was 100 % satisfied before I left his studio. He takes pride in his work and aims to please! Desert Photography will be my first choice in all my future shoots. Thank You!

Brad Zangwill photographed my mother's 75th surprise birthday party just two days ago. Before the party, we did a photo shoot of just the immediate family -- grandparents, siblings, grandchildren. It was a lot of fun. Within one hour, Brad managed to photograph us at 5 different locations on the grounds of the hotel where we were. He is super nice, very professional, and very quick! Once the party started, Brad was snapping photos at all the right moments, especially during emotional speeches. I can't wait to see what our photos look like! This is the first time we have such a large event -- 85 people -- and I was a little stressed out. I have to say that Brad's calm presence and efficient demeanor really helped put me at ease. No matter that the champagne was late and the mic didn't work, I knew that at least we would have great photos/great memories regardless. Thank you, Brad!

Nona handled our multi-generational outdoor family photo shoot wonderfully! After taking photos of the whole group, she followed up with many family groupings and poses. She worked well with the seven children, some that were less than cooperative, at times. She was very professional and a very reasonable price!

Amazing experience. John was very understanding and flexible for my needs and what I wanted in my head shot (Job Seeker/LinkedIn profile pic). John offered great suggestions/advice to bring out the best possible photo. The photo session was very comfortable and relaxed (really cool environment). During the photo shoot, John set-up great poses, very engaging to get the right expressions. Selecting the right photo was tough - because there was so many good shots to choose from (and I don't consider myself photogenic). Great experience, John is very knowledgeable, experienced and skilled. Very happy with the experience and the end product.

Mr. Sechrest stayed in constant contact with us prior to the shoot, inquired about hobbies and other pertinent info pertaining to interest for adding props. for the shoot. Mr. Sechrest also hooked us up with a contact for make up (she did an excellent job). He took us to an excellent location for the best lighting and moved the scheduled day for the shoot so the weather was optimal. Mr. Sechrest was patient with my daughter as she changed clothes and tried different poses, he was willing to cross some treacherous rocks near the water to get the best pics possible. His knowledge of the area for locations was outstanding, he took quite a few really good pictures and the price for his work is very reasonable. I highly recommend Mr. Sechrest for photo shoots and I plan on using his service next year for my other daughter's graduation pictures.

Our family needed a photo of all 12 of us that included 4 little boys under 4. Danielle worked great with the kids and offered lots of different groupings and poses. I was most impressed by how she could be in the middle of a group shot and pause for a great candid she saw out of the corner of her eye.

Professional and Personable! I needed a photographer for a piano recital that consisted of 22 students with a full stage production. I SuStudios right away because they accommodated all of my needs. Before, during and after my event they were right there for me. My event also has a video crew and SuStudios worked well not clashing with them. I also also like that David and Susan are very creative when it come to their photo shoots. I look forward to using them for my next recital and any event where I need photography and I would suggest you would too! You will have no regrets!

We have had both a family and individual (my daughter's senior photo) photo shoot with Kenny Goldberg and both times we had a wonderful experience. At each session he took care that we had a variety of poses and spots within the location to choose from. He is professional yet fun to shoot with. He is extremely patient and knows how to get a "good shot." His turn around time was excellent. What I love, since I am always so short on time & I do not have a lot of patience, he will point out & send only the shots he thinks are worthy of consideration. I highly recommend Kenny and will continue to use him for all of our photo shoots.

My experience with Nicole, Chris and their crew was something I'll always cherish!! They're so professional and thoughtful - it made our special wedding day one we will always remember. ROF as a whole takes their profession to the next level and always looking for ways to expand/improve. They're so genuine and creative - I truly appreciated their service and friendship. I highly recommend them on all levels and wish them nothing but success. Thank you for capturing our day via photo, video, and of course personally, b/c of you, we'll always have something exceptional to look back on and remember!!

Our wedding was back in April and Sean and his team did the photography and video. We live about 2 hours from Sean and the first time we met he was willing to drive out and meet with us with no obligation. We ended up meeting half way between us but the fact that Sean was willing to make the drive said a lot about him and his company. Before meeting Sean we had decided that we were going to only hire a videographer because we couldn't afford both and stay in budget and my wife wanted video of the ceremony over photos. However once we met with Sean he gave us a quote for both photography and videography and I have to say I was suprised Sean was willing to do both for such a reasonable price and just a bit more than what we were going to pay others for just video. Sean was always quick to answer any questions we had. The day of the wedding Sean and his team were quick to start shooting and capture all the moments of getting ready before heading to the church. After the ceremony we met at a park that we wanted to take photos and unfortunatley this was one of the windiest days. Sean and his team still worked with the wind and got as many shots as we could get in before we couldn't bare the cold wind. At the reception Sean and team were great and at one point we had an incident that put us behind schedule and had to quickly go through some of the moments and Sean was right there with us making sure to still capture them and stay on track. Overall Sean and his team were great and my wife and I were both more than satisfied with Sean and all he did the day of the wedding. We have even recomended Sean to my brother-in-law  who is planning his wedding. Now we're just waiting to see how the photos and video come out especially after that crazy wind we all had to deal with!

I hired Hugh to do a photo shoot of my girlfriend doing ballet poses. She and I were extremely happy with the results. He has a natural artistic eye and talent for lighting. Hugh was professional, a pleasure to work with, and very reasonably priced.

Amazing photographer! Arrived early, stayed later, made sure we had a list of photos for our big day to keep us on track and took charge to make sure we captured all our desired photos! Most importantly he really made us feel comfortable on our big day, those awkward photo moments were non existent! Thank you so much for being wonderful!

Olga was AMAZING with our daughter's Senior Pics! My daughter is NOT a typical teenager who loves selfies, photo shoots, dressing up or makeup! Olga did an incredible job making her feel comfortable with just being herself. She captured my daughter's natural beauty and guided her during the entire shoot so professionally. Olga asked my daughter's opinion often so she felt like she truly had input into the photo's being taken of her. The end result had me teary eyed because the pictures were absolutely beautiful and best of all, my daughter admitted enjoying the shoot and loved Olga!!! I will highly recommend her to anyone I know looking for a photographer!

Aamir was wonderful to work with! I even had a flat tire and had to push my time back a little bit, and he was more than willing to accommodate for me. The photo shoot itself was a great first experience. I will definitely be going back and referring friends!

For any special occasion photography, LOOK NO FURTHER! Gabe is truly a ONE OF A KIND photographer which you will quickly find out once you meet him. He sees things in such a different and unique way and is very outside the box thinking. He brings amazing creativity to any project. If that isn't enough to persuade you, just give Gabe a call and talk to him. He is so down to earth and funny which helps take the tension and awkwardness out of a photo shoot. Gabe has a true natural talent for photography and was able to capture every special moment of our family's photos, and that meant the world to us. Give him a call, you will not be disappointed.

My fiancé and I will never have to find another photographer in our lives thanks to Chris! He managed to do a surprise engagement photo shoot for me and pulled it off better than anyone would have! Like a boss! His work quality is phenomenal and the photos came out so much better than We could have ever expected. Such a pleasant experience! He’s a really cool guy, you won’t regret picking him as your photographer for your special event! I’ll drop just some of the many great photos he took!

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.
