Lawrence is nothing short from amazing! I was stood up by my photographer on my wedding day. With only 1hr to spare before my ceremony. Lawrence came through in the clutch with only 45min of notice. Not only did he make it in time. Our wedding pictures are Amazing!!! The turnaround time to receive my pictures was only 7hrs. I would definitely have Lawrence on speed dial if I ever need a photographer in the Bay Area!!!

Michael was awesome as our wedding day photographer. He made us all feel super comfortable and was conscious about making sure we did not feel like the picture taking was stealing time away from our wedding festivities. He also was great about where and when to get the best shots and was super accommodating to any ideas we had. he was also quick with the turnaround and the end result pictures were amazing! Would highly recommend for a shoot.

Cindy was the exact personality you need in a wedding photographer: caring and assertive in her direction, without being pushy. She was incredibly open and kind to all our friends and family. She's dependable and calming. And of course the photos: they were beautiful beyond our expectations!

Sheila is not only a talented photographer but also very professional. She is very communicative and was a pleasure to work with. She was a joy to have around during the wedding day and was honestly a "fly on the wall" unlike other wedding photographers who are too "in it". The pictures she takes are beautiful and extremely well priced. I would not hesitate to work with her again. I actually look forward to it.

I hired Jeff to photographed our 50th wedding anniversary celebration of 63 people. He discussed the event several times in advance. He arrived 30 minutes before the posed fmaily pictures were takes to set identify scenic background at winery in Napa and set up proper lighting for the scene which was heavely backlit. He took posed pictures of 11 family members in various groupings, informal pictures at reception and during dinner and at Renewal of Weddding Vow ceremony. Picture were very good- sharp and good lighting. He composed 3 different albums for members of the family and was very quick in re-arranging the order of the pictures and making requested edit. . He was very professional to work with and guests enjoyed having him take their picture. He was very prompt ( within 3 days) in posting on his website a gallery of about 100 pictures of the event, which guests can review , download and order prints. He completed composing 3 different albums in 10 days. I was very pleased and recommend Jeff for event photography.

I got my sister an engagement style shoot in sanfrancisco as a part of her wedding present. I wasn't sure if she would like it (she isnt really that into pictures) but I am so happy that I did. They said that they had an absolutely amazing experience and that Andrea is literally the nicest most awesome photographer in the world. She brought champagne made the experience special, hung out with them, made them feel relaxed, took 2 hours of amazing photos at multiple locations, and then even gave them a lovely restaurant recommendation and then checked in after to see if they liked with. She was easy to work with, super helpful in arranging and planning everything, and a very fair price. Thanks Andrea!

Patrick was our wedding photographer, and he went above and beyond for us in too many ways to list. He was professional, hardworking and thoughtful in every way, disappearing into the background yet catching so many amazing moments throughout the evening. Patrick is not your traditional wedding photographer, but that was not what we were looking for. His work speaks for itself, and we recommend him highly.

We used LuvlyProduction for our wedding photobooth in May 2018. I was impressed by their responsiveness and their desire to make sure we had a good experience working with them. Our guests really enjoyed the props and enclosed photobooth!!! I had no complaints from our coordinator about setup or teardown. Would not hesitate to book again :)

Eric and his assistant, Claire were so professionally unobtrusive during my daughter’s wedding event, I did not even notice they were there. The proof of their presence is in the captivating candid photos and the beautiful artistic photos that recorded the entire day. Everyone looks amazing. Eric perfectly captured the unique personalities of the bride and groom throughput the day. I was not able to meet Eric until the day of the wedding because I live overseas. I chose based upon his portfolio and online communication. What could have been a series of pretty pictures of a cookie cutter country club wedding with another photographer is instead a perfect blend of photojournalism, fine art, and traditional styles, Eric’s and Claire’s work show the very present, palpable feelings between the bride and groom. Perfect.

We hired Tri to do some commercial photography for our hotel project. Tri was very professional and willing to cater around our hectic schedule. From start to finish, Tri was extremely responsive in communication. We would definitely recommend Tri to any other business owners seeking professional commercial photography for their business!

Ryan took photos at our wedding party of about 40 people last weekend. The photos turned out great and he gave them to us right after the wedding on a disk! He showed up 15 minutes early, was super professional and not disruptive. I would use Ryan again for sure.

Fifi did a great job producing professional head shot photographs for me. She was delightful to work with, very customer focused, and extremely patient. Fifi made me comfortable during the shoot, had an excellent eye for details, worked on my pose, lighting, and background....all this in a public park with activity and people swirling about. The pictures came out great; flawless execution, which resulted in so many good shots to choose from, it caused us a delightful challenge. I think Fifi is an expert photographer, and a lovely person too, and would highly recommend her for any and all photographic needs. If this review doesn't convince you, just go look at her website and you'll be WOW'd. Thanks Fifi for a wonderful job; it was very nice working with you....cheers.

We hired Larry for our company event, he is very responsible, provides great work with excellent price. A lot of other photographers will try make extra by not providing a full service, with him all the planning and post editing are included. Larry is also great that when we were setting up the venue, he arrived early to help, as well as staying late to help us clean up. Great guy!

Before working with Nico, he was already one of my favorite photographers. His style always caught my eye, but working with him cemented his place in my heart! He is professional and hilarious. We had so much fun searching for impromptu spots and making jokes while shooting. The way Nico posed me during shoots was effortless and easy. He has very clear ideas, and explains how he wants the shot to look so the model has a clear idea of the vision. He was open to my ideas and I felt like we were creative equals. I cannot wait to shoot with him again. A wonderful experience!

Rich Jarvis was the photographer for our wedding, and I couldn't be happier with his thorough documentation of our big day. Rich has a great eye and gives good direction. He listened to what we wanted too. He got pictures of all major objects and our guests, plus awe inspiring shots of us. He's equally skilled at candid shots, picking touching and funny moments. He also has a very calming presence which is so important on such a nerve racking day. I highly recommend hiring him.

We hired Lara as our wedding photographer this summer in San Francisco. The short version is, hire her! Don't even think twice, you will be more than satisfied with the results. Lara arrived at our venue a few minutes ahead of schedule, set up quickly and proceeded over the next several hours to capture every magical moment with extremely high quality shots. She was unobtrusive, never in the way or distracting and always in the right place at the right time. She does amazing things with the lighting that is available, and has a knack for timing her shots. She is also an expert with image processing. I can honestly say that even the b-roll was loaded with amazing shots and she let us keep every single one. By the latter half of the day, when we toured the city for post-wedding pictures, we got to know Lara a person a bit better as an individual. She is a really cool person, very friendly and easy to talk to. So the bonus on top of amazing pictures was that her company is top-notch as well. And the trifecta of the whole experience was the total cost: her price is extremely competitive, especially considering the incredible quality of her work. She easily earned a 10/10 recommendation!

Shaun was one of the photographers out of about 6, for a shoot I was apart of. I was instantly drawn to him because of his friendly demeanor and ended up doing most of the photo shoot with him. He helped build up my confidence throughout the shoot, with his positive and fun comments about how I was doing. He edited pics and sent them to me a day later (pretty darn fast!) & I was very pleased with the photos. I would definitely shoot with Shaun again!

Had an excellent experience with Michelle! She was quite patient, helpful and you can tell she’s passionate and serious about her work. Michelle went above and beyond to make sure I got plenty of great photos to pick from and worked with me to come up with creative ideas for my 30 birthday photos. She will certainly be the photographer I call on for future events, etc. !

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.
