From my first inquiry about the project to delivering our finished photos, I found Jessica to be a true first-class professional. Even my skeptical husband (who didn't think we needed professional photographers for a family shoot) was blown away with the photos and my entire family of 5 truly feel that we hit the "photographer jackpot" when we found Jessica and Bobby. Thank you for listening to our needs and for making us feel very comfortable during the shoots at Sunset Cliffs. My children loved the time you both spent with them and how you added some special creative magic to make some playful pictures for us. We really appreciate how you were also so responsive after the shoot, and for delivering our photos within a 3 day turnaround. We are definitely enjoying digitally viewing our family and individual photos now, but the hard part is selecting which photos of the many we all love to be "printed or framed." Bottom line, we are confident Jessica and Bobby will also exceed your expectations like they did ours. Your overall experience will be nothing short of remarkable.

I highly recommend Heather as a photographer. She was very accommodating and handled some tough lighting conditions without hesitation. She went out of her way to make sure that I was happy with both the images that she took, but also with the entire logistical process. She arrived to our event well repaired and skilled with your equipment. I'm very happy with Heather and her services.

Palo and Alex were our wedding videographers and put together an amazing edit! It was super easy working with them leading up to our big day and the day-of. They're fun people and got along well with our photographers and other vendors. We received our deliverables ( + raw footage) within reasonable amount of times. HIGHLY recommend them for any wedding. Your wedding day really is a blur, and we were more than happy with our decision to go with Palo to capture all the feels of the day/night.

I couldn't ask for better photographers. Michael and Dia's are so down to earth and very professional. I was one of those brides who have no clue of what I was looking for and they know exactly what to capture based on our personalities. When my event manager went missing, Michael has taken the initiate and pulled me away from the guests, so we can be on track with our wedding schedule. They made me feel so at ease from the start until the end. I can't wait to see our final wedding day pictures. THANK YOU from the bottom of our heart!!!

Jesse and his team were highly professional and accessible leading up to our event and throughout the night. We had two photographers total; one at the photo booth with lighting and one roving the party. this was a perfect set up for what we required. Will definitely book Jesse next time my company comes to town for a party!

I had an awesome overall experience with Wasio faces! Sasha and Yaneck are wonderful and really made my first experience getting headshots taken a fun and professional one! They made me feel so comfortable and at home as well. If you are looking for professional photographers either for weddings, headshots or any other event, I highly recommend Wasio!

We've hired Debora for a few different photo shoots, and we keep hiring her because she's an amazing photographer and her finished product is outstanding. She's easy to work with, is happy to take your ideas and translate them into a great photo, and can also lead the entire artistic process if that's what you want. Very professional and flexible.

Christina & Jake made this year's family photo session a wonderful, hassle free experience -- which can be challenging when a 5 year boy is involved! We don't live in California, so I was initially stressed about the time involved to research photographers & their styles in addition to a location that would be unique. From the initial request for info all the way through receiving the portrait package -- they were extremely responsive, amazing & were very thoughtful in their location recommendations based on what I was looking for (even though I didn't really know what I was looking for). In person, they immediately made us all feel at ease and made it a fun experience. The pictures turned out AMAZING ...and they sent them to me the next night -- UNBELIEVABLE turnaround time! I would highly recommend them; in fact I have already told my friends who live in the SD area about them. We would definitely use them again!!!!

What a wonderful experience it was to have Maria take my family photos. Not only is she an amazing person who makes you the entire shoot feel comfortable she also makes it fun for everyone, the kids had a blast and she truly captured some remarkable moments that I will cherish forever. If you are looking for a photographer look no further, I will definitely be going back to maria for every event and picture my family needs!

Joni Connor is not only a true artist, but a true professional. I can see the care, and time she puts in even before her shoots. She scoped out the area a day before hand, making sure to note just the perfect lighting, and allowed time for the tone of her photos to settle in her mind before actually performing her craft. Joni did a phenomenal photo shoot for me last year for my Chinese Medicine -acupuncture and herbal practice. The quality of the photos is exquisite, she understands texture and mood. I was so happy with the results, that I even received a patient out of one of my business Instagram posts! If you want a talented, thorough, dedicated, accommodating and professional photographer who possesses true artistry , I would contact Joni. I was very satisfied with her work and would recommend her to anyone!

Eric was the photographer for my military retirement on the Midway Museum. We could not have had a better experience! He showed up early, and stayed until we were sure we had all the pictures we could've wanted. He had excellent communication, and the pictures were fantastic! From the candid shots we didn't even know he was taking, to the group and posed shots were all perfect! He turned the pictures around quickly despite a busy schedule. I would definitely use Eric again for any photography I might need!

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.
