Will Hartman was amazing! Will and his wife, Michelle, designed my wedding photo booth template and it was beautiful. Will arrived early, set up everything and was wonderful during his entire time at my wedding. I couldn't have hired a better professional. The photo booth I had was the LED inflatable backdrop and it turned out great in pictures. The props were also fantastic. I feel like they really go above and beyond to do the best job and I am so grateful they did my wedding. Thanks so much for the wonderful job and for the scrapbook. It really was a lot of fun for everyone there and the moments you captured were priceless. I highly recommend hiring Desert Rose Photography for your wedding or other special event. They were perfect at my wedding!

Brad is top notch. My wife and I hired him this past Saturday for our wedding. He was on time stayed a little extra and exceeded our expectations. He is a real artist. He is so instinctively quick and able to capture moments. He also has a strong crew. We opted for photos and video with Brad. We had children in our wedding party whom Brad photographed vivid and candidly. If anyone is in the market for a wedding photographer hire Brad on our recommendation, he could not have done a better job. Pure EXCELLENCE! Irene and Mark

Danielle was our wedding photographer for our April 10th wedding. She was amazing! She was very easy to work with and very personalable. Very easy to get along with personality. I felt very comfortable around her and she was really good at directing us for different positions for pictures. You could tell she loves what she does. Her passion really comes out in her work. She also loved my picture ideas that I suggested as well. She really captured the moment for us. Can't wait to see all the pictures! I would be excited to use her again for a future!!

Nicole and her husband photographed our wedding and we couldn't be happier! They are so nice and professional. They listened to what type of photos we wanted and took a wide variety of pictures. They captured the moments perfectly and really took it to the next level with the posed photos I asked them for that we took in a separate location from the ceremony and reception itself. One of the most important things to me was to get some pictures that were very unique and highly stylized (not typical wedding photos). They really came through for us and delivered exactly what I wanted as well as taking fantastic wedding pictures that tell the whole story of our day from start to finish. The last thing I'd like to say about them is that they were so great to work with. During all the commotion and stress leading up to and during the day itself, it was important to me to work with people who are truly nice people as well as talented at what they do. 100% professional. I would highly recommend them!!

Sean has been great from the very beginning. He did our Engagement Shoot and our Wedding. Our engagement photos were amazing and from what I have seen so far, the wedding pictures are just as equally amazing. I am really excited to see what he puts together for our video. We really loved working with him and his crew. They were very easy going and worked hard to get all of the shots that I had wanted. I have already recommended him to a few of my friends. Also, he was very affordable and I know for me personally, I was on a tight budget for the wedding, and couldn't afford the rates that most photographer/videographers charge. I really got lucky when I found him. Thank you Sean for everything! And I can't wait to see the rest! :) Sabrina

Palo is honestly the best wedding photographer and he makes breathtaking videos!!! First, we hired him for our engagement shoot and after we have seen the lovely pictures we had to book him for our wedding day. He is a true artist and made both of us feel very comfortable in front of camera. The images and video came out amazing and after I posted everything on my social media my friends instantly started begging me for his number. Palo, thanks to your amazing talent we have pictures that we will cherish for a lifetime. This review is for all the couples out there looking for the RIGHT photographer; Please do not look any further and book Palo today!!! I promise you won't be disappointed. He ROCKS⚡️

My fiance and I hired Chasing Light to do our photo and video for our wedding. Their pricing was perfect for what we were looking for and we were very excited to be getting both photo and video by the same team. We recently had our engagement photos and cannot begin to explain how happy we are to have chosen them. Our photographer, Russ, was very flexible with the date and even helped us find the perfect location. He definitely listened to what we had in mind and was even ok with my fiance wearing his sunglasses for some of the shots. Russ was very easy to work with and had 2 preview images back to me within the next hour! On top of that, he had the rest of our images ready the next day and they are everything we hoped for and more! I have friends who had to wait weeks to get their engagement photos back. Needless to say, we are obsessed with our engagement photos and CANNOT wait to see how our wedding photos and video turn out.

Dia and Michael were amazing! Ours was a small intimate wedding and they were so accommodating and professional. I would highly recommend Meraz photography! They really made our day special, even when our teenage daughter started being "sassy" they handled it with poise and grace! I cannot say enough great things about Meraz photography! You won't regret hiring them for your event!

I you are thinking of using Equinox photo, you will not be disappointed. Tricia absolutely surpassed both me and my wife's expectations. We absolutely loved every photo she took...from our engagement session to our big wedding day. Tricia will absolutely make you feel comfortable in front of a camera. She is 100% professional, but also makes the photo shoot fun! We loved her contagious positive energy, and unique style. Every one of our pictures came out perfect--like bridal magazine perfect! I was so shocked at how she was able to capture every moment so beautifully. On the day of the wedding, Tricia and her husband, LJ, made the stress of the day simply go away with their delightful personalities. Having great wedding photos was one of the most important things that we wanted. My wife was very particular about how she wanted our photos to look, but Tricia surpassed even my wife's high standards :) From the moment we met with Tricia, we know that she would be someone that we could connect with and be open with. We didn't realize at the time how important that would be. There are thousands of photographers out there, but Tricia truly is one in a million. Thank you, Tricia, for everything!

Verified review

We hired Eric as the videographer for our wedding in Palm Springs. We had been on the fence about having a videographer but decided to do it only a few weeks before the wedding. The entire day was very smooth. Eric was very professional and worked very well with our photographer. I barely noticed him, the 2nd shooter, or the drone throughout the day. However, the video we got back was AMAZING! It was exactly what we asked for. It’s incredible how much footage he got without us knowing he was there. We can’t recommend him enough. We are so glad we decided to hire a videographer and so fortunate that we chose him.

We found Lacey when we were looking for someone to take pictures for our family to celebrate my mom’s 70th. We are from out of town so we were a little nervous about choosing the right photographer, but everything went better than we imagined. Lacey was very patient and friendly and her pictures are the best ones that my family and I have ever taken. I’ve attached a few. She was able to capture everyone’s personalities perfectly! Thank you Lacey!!

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.
