Michael photographed my wedding and he was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!!!!!!! I was a crazed bride and he was able to assuage my worries every step of the way!! We met at a public place, signed a contract (short and simple, which was nice) and put down our deposit. Michael is professional and quick--we got our proofs before we got to the hotel that night and the edited photos within a week! I have had people compliment me both on how discreet Michael was--he was never "in the way"-- as well as how hard he worked throughout my entire event--"I don't think I ever saw him sit down!" Our edits came out beautifully and I was thrilled to have so many wonderful photos to choose from! I have already given out two of Michael's cards to friends looking for professional photographers, and I will always sing his praises. Michael R Erwine is a FANTASTIC photographer--you're doing yourself a disservice by working with anyone else!!!!!

Jenny Marie is hands down the best photographer around! She is the photographer we use for all of our photography needs. Our family pictures, individual pictures, and our animal pictures all are amazing! Every year we do location shoots with her and she delivers the most beautiful pictures! This is not an easy task with three boys in the pictures. She puts them at ease and they have fun. Every year they look forward to our photography days. When people see our pictures they are always very, very impressed and want to know who the photographer was. Her prices are so reasonable and she goes above and beyond every time. We highly, highly, highly recommend her!!!

His work is extraordinary! I loved working with him, first he's professional and he will get your pictures on time! Second, quality of the pictures are amazing! Third, he is very creative so wether it's fashion, wedding, portraits or commercial he will deliver excellence in photos! Fourth, you will have fun during your photo shoot!! Trust me that's important, some photographers, you will feel so nervous and it will show during your session!!! You would be doing yourself a favor! Booking with him!!! Thank you Anthony!! When are we shooting again! Haha

We have hired Cassie for years to take our family and individual portraits. Cassie is creative and professional. She is fun to work with and has such an easy-going, positive personality that puts my kids at ease and brings out their natural expressions and mannerisms, which is what we are looking for--a beautiful moment captured for us to treasure. Cassie's experience and talent keep us coming back!

Paul is a photographer's photographer. He has the eye and the technology to make any shoot work. As an instructor he's top-notch, with experience in journalism and technology that he is more than willing to share with everyone. His wife, Tammy, is part of the team, a major part...and what a wonderful lady! They both live a healthy lifestyle, with their dogs Tipper (the big one) and Peanut (the little guy)... more wonderful people I couldn't recommend more! If you need a shoot done right, call Paul!

DePaul was a fantastic photographer for my engagement photos! The photos turned out great and were done very quickly after the shoot (about a week or so). He is always courteous and listens to his client's needs/wants. I would definitely recommend him as a photographer.

Photographing twin three year olds is a challenge, but Miranda managed to get some photos we loved! She even got a few family pictures that their picky Mommy liked. I would recommend Miranda to anyone but especially to those with small children!!

It was really great working with Pete. We met at his house for our pre consult to talk about what we wanted from our family portrait session; he was very attentive to and flexible with what we were looking for. He was at the location early setting up and even went to an extra location for us. Pete remembered everything we'd talked about during our initial consult. About a week after the shoot, we went back to see the pictures on Pete's huge flatscreen (which was really cool because we could see all the details) and pick our favorites. The pictures we got were absolutely beautiful, and we turned two of them into a Christmas card with a template he had. The turnaround time was 3 days- amazing! The cards are great quality and I can't wait to send them out to our family and friends. We also got a few prints made for gifts and they turned out wonderfully. We would highly recommend Pete for any other family looking for a high quality photographer with an easy-going personality.

Justin is a fantastic drone photographer. Hired him for some drone shots of a property that's a bit remote. He coordinated with me about the best days to go for weather which resulted in some fantastic shots. Very responsive as well. Will definitely use him again.

      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.
