I had professional headshots done at Gody Photography and I couldn't be more pleased. The pictures are fantastic. Modern, clean, flattering and just a dash artistic. Nador is a perfectionist and went the extra mile to make sure everything turned out exactly as I wanted it to be. First we took studio pictures with two different backgrounds. Then we ventured outside and tried different spots. Nador even went back to get more powerful light sources. Usually, I dread having by picture taken but Nador is so easy to work with and makes you feel good about yourself that the entire process was actually really fun and enjoyable. I could even bring my dog and we took some picture with my dog in the end. Nador is also super responsive to email and edited the picture in no time. I love the photos Nador took and most highly recommend him.

Lawrence did a fantastic job on my wedding photography and video. His stills and video are all beautiful and very creative. Everyone who's seen our wedding photos want to hire him for their next event! In addition to having a great eye and skills, he was also very professional, friendly and accommodating. He even drove us to the Golden Gate Bridge for pics after the wedding and then to our wedding dinner! I could not recommend Lawrence more highly. Great photographer and great guy!

Loved Michael's work! Requested a non-intrusive journatlistc photography approach (candid shots) for a small wedding and that is exactly what we got. Michael was polished and un-assuming -- he blended in with the guests and captured the wedding and reception without interrupting the flow. Though the bride was afraid staged pictures would appear cheese-ball, Michael had the bride and groom pose in areas of the venue that he selected for a few photos- and they turned out to be the most beautiful photos of the collection. The only slip up we did not account for was finding parking in downtown San Francisco...On account of this Michael ran a tad late to the ceremony and reception venues. But his process, style & photographs made up for it!

I hired Cindy Hegger Photography to photograph my sister's wedding. Cindy responded to my original inquiry right way and had a perfect mix of professional and warm demeanor. She stayed in touch with me as the event drew near. I was completely confident of her ability and reliability well before the event. When it became apparent there was a major rain storm in the forecast for the ceremony/wedding event, Cindy called to provide guidance in terms of some great options that would still be lovely for wedding photographs, so the bride and I were undaunted by the imminently stormy skies. The day of the wedding Cindy arrived well in advance of the festivities, had already made her reconnaissance trip and was armed with all the best scenery intel (which proved to be instrumental in her objective of seizing the moment during a fortuitous break in the storm). She was calming through the entire event and was an absolute pleasure to work with. The bride felt like Cindy was part of the family, was so calming, and was her special wedding advocate. The photographs are gorgeous, Cindy captured the venue and subjects in the most perfect ways/lighting, and as one of the bridal party commented, "They look like White House photos!" What a special day and Cindy being a part of it completely added to the day for me, not only in that she beautifully captured everything but also in that I really felt like she was my best wingwoman of the day. The photos are absolutely incredible and I can't believe Cindy had them edited and ready for my sister, the bride, THE VERY NEXT DAY!!!!!! On a scale of 1 to 10 she is a 20. I recommend Cindy Hegger Photography with the utmost enthusiasm.

Our Annual Awards Ceremony is a very important event to our organization and to our members. Jeff's professional work ethic and his willingness to go the extra mile to get great candid shots were perfect. And I was so impressed by how fast he turned the shareable gallery around for us to share with our members. We will use Jeff for all of our professional photography needs!

Patrick was fantastic to work with, and an excellent photographer. He really set the bar high for our event photography. He was able to capture interesting shots of not-so-interesting subjects. Patrick was professional, laid back, and easy to work with. There was a bit of schedule misunderstanding due to this being such a last-minute engagement, but he kindly worked it out with us and all was well. We're definitely interested in working again with Patrick in the future.

Tri responded to my request for acting headshots in under 30 minutes. He was easily reachable via phone to schedule an appointment the same week. He meet me at a mutually agreeable time and at a convenient outdoor location. Tri was was extremely professional during the session - showing up on time, making me feel comfortable, and utilizing various backgrounds/light effects. He also provided me the edited copies in under 5 hours to help me with my audition. I will gladly use his services in the future. Highly recommend Tri Nguyen Photography.

Larry is amazing to work with! He knows his stuff and couldn't be a better teacher for someone who is just learning photography or for someone who has been practicing for years. We spent time reviewing the fundamentals and then went to go put what I had learned into practice by taking some shots. Highly recommend!!

Nico Garibay Photography is AMAZING. Nick makes sure to make everything perfect for you AND the shot. The pictures I have are the best I have ever taken, and as a dancer I have a lot already. I would not ever pass on an opportunity to work with him, and I will forever send my students to him for their personal and portfolio shoots. I'm convinced that he is capable of anything and everything, and I love love love the experience that I had.

I would highly recommend working with Rich Jarvis Photography. He took on-campus graduation photos for myself and 7 other of my friends. The images came out absolutely beautiful. The images quality is spectacular, and we got the pictures back really fast. I also liked that he was able to work with all of our different personalities, and gave us suggestions for poses.

I liked working with Lara in person because she has a very sweet and friendly disposition, but I have to admit that she's not very responsive to emails or texts. I was kind of frantic the day of my elopement because I hadn't heard from her until maybe an hour or so before, and it was a struggle trying to confirm confirm her availability over the weekend. As for the photos themselves, they were good. She didn't do as much retouching as I hoped for, but for the price they were fine. The files are supposedly high resolution, but they're small, most of them around 1MB (all of my professionally done headshots are 8-10MB).

Michelle put a ton of work into our engagement photo shoot and was simply amazing. She went above and beyond in every step of this process and I couldn’t have asked for a better photographer. She is really sweet, makes it fun, and helps you plan out your vision for what you want in the shoot. I’m extremely happy with the quality and quantity of the pictures she took and I will treasure them forever. I 100% recommend her for any of your photography needs.

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.
