He was very professional and coordinated well with the photographers. He arrived early to capture the bridal parties getting ready and stayed throughout the evening until the reception was almost over. We are excited to see the beauty he captured of our special day!

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.

If you are looking for photographers look no further! Dia and her husband are true professionals who created wonderful memories for us. They braved the rain for our wedding day, all while still taking truly wonderful photos. They made every effort to please our timeframe and we couldn’t have asked for more. When we head back to Huntington Beach for more photos we now have found our photographers. Thank you guys once again

Outstanding, absolutely phenomenal photography! Sasha & Yanek photographed my engagement session and wedding and the photos well exceeded my expectations. They make you feel so comfortable with them that you're so naturally relaxed and look amazing in your photos. I had the opportunity to work with Magdalena for a boudoir session before the wedding and she was amazing too! You don't get better than Wasio when it comes to photography. I will forever use them for my formal photo sessions. I love these guys! I am so honored to have had them as my photographers last year.

More than Outstanding! Very talented and professional photographer. Clay is a very driven and passionate man who works in a timely manner! He provides lots of creative ideas and has a special eye that somehow combines creative and professional, perfectly. Clay and his assistant came to shoot a commercial industry shoot. He was very time efficient, talented and most of all an enjoyable photographer to have around! 10 stars!

I met Debra through a mutual friend and I could not have been any more pleased than I was with her as my wedding photographer. She's very professional and has a gift for creating amazing photos. Her creativity shines through each photo she captures. I have already recommended her to all my friends who are planning their weddings. Her work is artwork.

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.

Maria went beyond helping us capture a very special moment in our lives, she helped pick the exact spot, the manner in which it happened and brought the champagne for afterwards. My birthday surprise to my girlfriend was a trip to San Diego. Unbeknownst to her I was planning my wedding proposal for that trip. We had never been to San Diego before and Maria went out of her way to help choose the best location for the proposal (A particular spot on Sunset Cliffs). I wanted to capture this moment with a professional photographer but I also wanted it to be a surprise. Maria was willing to act as if she was at the spot taking photos to build her own portfolio and if we were willing to be captured in a few. After some initial pictures she had my now fiancé turn toward the water where I was able to get down on my knee and Maria prompted her to turn back around. It was perfect!! In addition to all that she went the extra mile and bought a bottle of champagne (with her own money) for afterward with cups that said 'She Said...' 'Yes'. That was never in the plan she just did it! The pictures turned out amazing. My fiancé was(is) in shock and was very surprised. Couldn't have asked for a better result. So in conclusion if you want a engagement planner, actress, professional photographer, and all around great person I highly recommend Maria Lozano.

Robert was early and did a fantastic job of capturing so many moments. He also was very patient with my mother and I as we requested several group photos throughout the evening. I would definitely reccomend him and use him again should we have a need for a photographer.

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!!

Choosing your engagement photographer is no easy task, but somehow Puneet made it one. His professionalism, patience, and skill as a photographer made him our only choice. And once he shot our engagement photos, we knew he was the only one we wanted to shoot our wedding. Puneet put us at ease and made the whole experience fun and memorable.

Patrick has done our family photos twice now and both experiences were fun, effortless, and comfortable. No forced smiles, no cheesy poses or filters...just really great photos of my family. My children both love him and as a result, he has managed to to capture some of my favorite photos of them which is not an easy feat particularly with my daughter who is very camera shy and reluctant and difficult to photograph! Patrick will be our family’s photographer for as long as he is willing which is a testament to how capable and talented he is if you consider that we have a photographer in our family who is willing to do our photos for free 🙈 We love him and the amazing images he takes of our family but his action shots particularly of surfers are the most breath taking. Follow him on Instagram if you ever want to take a mental retreat to the beach. They are truly amazing and calming to look at. @patricksanfordphotography

At the time she was based in South Carolina while we were in Virginia.l, and it was imperative that we sought out for her services for our big day. She’s done everything from our engagement photos, wedding, and maternity photos. She is our family photographer, and we appreciate her and her services.

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.
