Lawrence Gerald always got back to me quickly. Our 50th wedding anniversary celebration took place at Embassy Suites, Milpitas, CA His photos were very clear, and he was easy to work with. He also added special effects to some of the unique photos. He was at the event from 10:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. His fee was reasonable for the quality of work and number of pictures he took. I would definitely recommend Larry as a photographer for any event.

Amazing time with Michael Keel. His quality and work ethic are second to none. Comparable price to most high quality photographers. Professional in all the right sense. We would book him for any other event should we need professional photography done. Legit, thanks Michael.

Diane was absolutely wonderful to have at our home, taking photos of my daughter's photo shoot birthday. She was fun, friendly, warm, and very talented. We plan to hire her again for other family and event photography needs!

Wendy was absolutely amazing to work with - she was prompt and the setup was fantastic! She had lots of fun props and her machine was very unique (LOVED the green screen). More than anything, she was very, very patient - we used LuvlyProduction for our wedding afterparty so you can imagine the state of people cramming into the photobooth at that time of the night. The photos and the printouts were of high quality, and she provided more than 2 copies per photo which was a very nice touch! Highly, highly recommend Wendy and LuvlyProductions for your event!

Eric and Claire were a delight to have as our photographers. Each time we spoke with Eric, he came prepared with ideas on locations. Before the actual day, he scouted out additional locations. We liked his work which is why we picked him. But, our wedding was on Saturday and we've already seen some samples, and we love, love what we've seen so far. Eric is professional, accommodating and his passion for his work is apparent. Even our guests enjoyed his presence at the wedding. We couldn't be happier with our experience of working with him.

Jen was a pleasure to work with and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking for a great Bay Area photographer. She knew her way around city hall and the civic ceremony process, which helped calm our nerves. Her directions during the photo shoot were clear, helpful, fun, and gentle. She is fantastic! Thank you so much, Jen.

Cheshire was our event photographer at our annual holiday party. He did a great job! We loved all the images and the fact that he was early on site and stayed late to make sure he captured everything asked for. We highly recommend Cheshire Dave!

Stephanie is awesome and such an easy photographer to work with. My husband and I were coming from out of state and she made it such a smooth process from beginning to end. She was very prompt and professional. We were so amazed at how fast we received our edited photos. She definitely did an amazing job capturing our special day. I look at my photos and it still makes me tear. Thank you so much Stephanie!

Usman took pictures for us at our SF City Hall Civil Ceremony and we couldn't be happier with how everything turned out. This was my first time using Thumbtack and I wasn't sure of the process or exactly what to expect, but was extremely pleased with the outcome and how easy it was. As a photographer, Usman was truly a pleasure to work with - he knew the City Hall civil ceremony process and made everything easy for us and a lot of fun. We loved his professional yet laid back style and it made us feel very comfortable and at ease in front of the camera (something that we weren't used to). From getting the quote, arranging details, payment, etc. everything was efficient and fast, but also very well done. He knew the best spots in and around City Hall for pictures - and I couldn't believe how many we were able to take in just an hour with him. We received the retouched photos very quickly (in less than a week!) via Dropbox and absolutely LOVE them. He did an amazing job! We would definitely work with Usman again and will certainly recommend him to our friends and family. Thank you Usman for capturing our day so perfectly! It was a pleasure to have you be a part of it. Thank you!

I had to do a short congratulatory video for a friend who is collecting a major award at the Cannes Festival. I come from the ad industry so I'm used to working with filmmakers, photographers etc; I found Ilja to be totally professional, easy to work with (even when I switched the brief) and affordable. He also has a good eye for lighting and performance. Would I use him again? Absolutely.

Our team loved working with Fifi at an event we held in the office last week. She is an absolute delight and a truly talented photographer—the event was so popular, Fifi kindly stayed an extra half hour as so many folks in our office wanted photos. We are super pleased and can't wait to show off our new professional headshot photos on LinkedIn and beyond. Highly recommended!

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.

I don't even know where to begin. Melissa was FANTASTIC! I joked with her that she was the best decision I made for my wedding day aside from marrying my husband. She was a pleasure to talk to leading up to the event to help plan out the day. She went straight to work and was not disruptive at all, if anything she made our day more enjoyable. Such a positive spirit to be around, everyone in my family loved her presence. She wasn't pushy and let us do our own thing but gave us input and advice on where and how to pose. She gave me my photos faster than I could even process my wedding day! I AM OBSESSED with my pictures. They look ethereal because of her special touch with lighting and glow. If you're looking for a photographer for any event, you can stop looking and hire Melissa now!

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.
