Albert is a wonderful photographer. I love the pictures he took of our concert last night. He captured the mood beautifully. I will definitely use him again.

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!!!

It was great having Michael as the photographer at our wedding reception! He was attentive, professional and easy to communicate with. Because he had a lot of experience photographing different types of wedding events, Michael was able to offer us good advice about when and where to stand in order to get the best photos. We really appreciated his help, as it made what was a very stressful day a little easier!

Our experience with Cindy was outstanding, amazing, and overall incredible. Having Cindy as our Wedding Photographer was really the smartest decision we could have made. She is personable, knows exactly what she's doing and somehow managed to capture moments that we didn't even realize were taking place. It was like having a really good friend who just happens to be an amazing photographer. We wanted a photographer who could go with the flow. We wanted somebody who would know what to do and just simply fit in to our program and not be regimented. So he knows exactly what she's doing and will be the perfect choice for any bride or groom. If you're reading this and you haven't hired her yet and I encourage you to look beyond the five stars, stop looking and hire her. I can't give more than 5 Stars but I wish I could. Thank you again Cindy!

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.

Diane was wonderful. She photographed my daughter's wedding in Santa Cruz, CA. When I first contacted her she was very professional and extremely friendly and took the time to answer all of my questions. The few times I needed to contact her prior to the wedding she responded very quickly. On the wedding day she was on time and again very professional. The guests and our family members liked her very much as she was polite and blended very nicely with the group, never getting in the way. Most importantly the bride and groom really liked her and were very glad that she was my choice. She made them feel very comfortable. I received the pictures very quickly and they are beautiful. Everyone loves them and I look at them almost every day. So excited to get prints made. The price was very reasonable and I feel I definitely got my money's worth and then some. I highly recommend Diane and hopefully can work with her again some time. Lorraine Eugene, OR

Adam and Hanna were our Wedding Photographers in November 2016. Everything was very professional from the first time we met them, email communication in between, and on the day of our wedding. They were specific in asking us which photos we desired to be taken and were careful to take these and more! We were very impressed by the results and the price. Adam and Hanna provided us with incredible, professionally done photos that we will cherish for the rest of our lives. Everyone we show our photos to are amazed at the quality. There's no one else out there who charges a great, low price with high quality! I would definitely recommend them to anyone.

Andrea did an incredible job photographing my 3-day business seminar called PleasureCEO Live! She worked well within the setting, and managed to capture some precious moments that I can now use well in my marketing materials. I myself am a professional portrait photographer so my standards are quite high, and I highly recommend Andrea for your events!

We hired Fun Frame Photo Booth for our wedding and there weren't any issues. They were able to set up and clean up on their own and the attendant handled everything without us being involved at all. The experience from beginning to end was so easy and they were great to work with!

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.

James has tremendous experience and knowledge as a photographer. He understands light and focus and depth on such an immediate level, which enables him to excel in his results, creating not just photos, but art. On top of this, he is considerate and very funny. He was the photographer for our daughter's wedding and the subjects all glowed in a phenomenal way. Every one was natural yet at their best.

Tri was exceptionally easy to work with, talented, and generous with his time, both in shooting and in retouching. I was looking for a mix of headshots/portraits: something professional, something fun, something that would display youthful charm and something that would display maturity without being stiff. I got exactly what I was looking for, and Tri even encouraged my dad to join in and took some great father/son shots. I am doing a variety of media appearances and speaking engagements, and I feel like I have enough of a variety to choose a portrait that would work for any different kind of engagement, as well as for my social media accounts. I would highly recommend Tri to anyone looking for an incredible portrait from a photographer that will really take the time to get to know you and deliver photos that capture your personality and essence.

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 needed a photographer for a next-day photoshoot. Catey provided samples of the types of work we requested when she initially reached out, which led to us hiring her. She is responsive and easy to work with. She had our group laughing and comfortable very soon after starting the shoot.

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.
