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!

Lawrence is a great photographer. He has a good personality and everything. Guest had good comments about him. He has amazing prices!!! The photos are amazing!! I love every picture he took, wished we had time to take more! I knocked off a star because I booked Lawrence for both photography and videography. Everything was great but since he was the one working both camera and video he wasn't able to get more video footage such as the guest speeches and personal interviews. But as far as photography he really does an amazing job getting good shots and poses. He has pictures and video mighty fast which is great! If you happen to have a problem with the CDs he is fast to fix the problem! Overall Lawrence was great!!! :)

Before I begin let me just say that the pictures that Michael took of my family are perfect! We never had a professional photography session before so we didn't know what to expect. He really took the time to find the best locations at the venue and made sure everything was just right before he took our pictures. Michael is very fun and personable as well as professional. Would definitely recommend him and I wish him all the best in his future endeavors.

I cannot say enough good things about, Cindy and her professional photography. She is an ace: great work, fun to be photographed by and turned around the digital photos within 24 hours! I will tell anyone that I know (or don't know) to let Cindy take your family, wedding, party, etc. photos. She is THE BEST! Thank you, Cindy! :)

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!

Working with Patrick was FANTASTIC. From the initial call to onsite work, Patrick was very responsive. He is also very professional and really engaging when immersed in his work. This event in particular included delegates from various countries and Patrick surely had their attention during the photo shooting--they were all smiles with his light jokes that further showed how personable he is. Patrick was able to handle any last changes and meet other demands without hesitation. His product is top notch and we were pleased to have him provide his photography services for our event. – Doriane Sewell (GEARS Inc.)

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.

It was great working with LuvlyProduction, they have a very professional team from setup to clean up. I highly recommend them for your event. All I had was a wrinkled backdrop and some tape, but they set everything up so professionally. I have included a photo from our annual dinner. We liked luvlyproduction so much we have hired them for a second event. I included some sample photos. They can handle small or large photo groups and they brought coordinating props as I requested. A custom professional experience from beginning to end.

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.

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.

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.
