Amazing job! Albert, our videographer was extremely professional. And Albert the owner was super! He came to our event and gave us photography services although I couldn't afford to purchase both photography & videography. Amazing team and will definitely book with them again!

I hired Lawrence to do some videography and photography of a special event. He did a great job that exceeded my expectations in terms of quality and professionalism, and it was delivered to me in a timely manner. He was a delight for me to work with and was also well liked by others participating in the event. I therefore highly recommend Lawrence and would hire him again without hesitation.

I specifically worked directly with Stavaan Shah, who is an excellent, conscientous, hard-working and highly professional individual and a highly regarded photographer. He and his crew did both the photography and videography for my sister's wedding. I was very fortunate to have found them so late in the process, but Stavaan was able to work around our crazy schedule and I was extremely satisfied with his customer service and extreme care to detail in his work. The talented individuals at Vision Infinie Photograpy were extremely responsive to all of my requests and showed up to all of the events leading up to my sister's wedding with extreme punctuality. Their work ethic is reflected in their work and their cooperation amongst each other to catch every beautifual moment on camera. I am still awaiting the vidoes and albums from the wedding but I have full confidence that Vision Infinie will live up to their promise of excellent quality photography and videograpy! I would highly recommend Vision Infinie Photography to anyone wishing to capture their memories on camera.

Doug photographed my small wedding ceremony at my parent's home recently. When I was looking for a photographer Doug mentioned that his clients all say he is easy to work with. I thought, "Yeah, I'm sure they all say that." Well, he sure was right! He strikes the perfect balance between being laid back and easy going yet professional, punctual (early in fact!), transparent and reliable. Although I hadn't met Doug in person prior to the event, my family members actually thought Doug and I knew each other -- they said things like "Oh, I thought you were friends, he fit in so easily!" (I should mention this was a small event with just 10 adults and 3 kids, so it's not that Doug was hidden in the crowd!) Doug even had some photos posted for us to see within just a few hours of the event and they look fantastic. I can't wait to see the rest! I highly recommend Douglas Fairbairn Photography, you won't be disappointed.

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!

We are very happy with Chris and his works. He came on time, covered all the guests and the decoration, was very friendly with the guests while taking their pictures, and took excellent photos. We didn't have enough lighting in our party hall, which is a challenge for photography. But the photos Chris took have come out absolutely gorgeous. My experience was really great. I would highly recommend Wowza Photography.

Allan was the photographer for my Senior Clarinet Recital poster. I loved the unique shots and angles he caught of me. He had a very clear vision on poses, backgrounds, and lighting that I agreed with. In addition to photography, he also does poster editing. I am excited to put them up!

We had a photography session with Nicholas for our wedding anniversary. We have done this a couple of times before and I can say that this time the photos came out really great. He paid attention to all the details and helped us with posing which was really important for me (he had lots of great ideas). He also spent enough time for us and did not rush for finishing the session. He is also very nice and friendly. Overall, I highly recommend him and I am sure you will be very satisfied with his service.

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.

Brandy was awesome to work with for our family photos! We have two small kids so it's not easy to get them to look at the camera and smile at the same time. Because if this we chose to do more "candid" shots of our family and Brandy was able to capture some really great moments! She's easy to work with and I would recommend to anyone wanting photography done!

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.
