The design for the photo was great and it matched the theme of the party perfectly. The photographer was on time. I liked getting a copy of all the pictures because I didn't get to see everyone take them. That was nice.

I contacted Adam Southard for new theatrical headshots. After reviewing several quotes and talking with potential photographers, I was most impressed with Adam's portfolio and his quick turn around time to answer my questions. Because I needed so many different looks, I also needed a photographer with a great eye and who could help me get the shots I needed (all in one shoot). I signed up for the headshot package - 6 looks for $300. I arrived to the shoot hair and makeup ready and had a friend who assisted me with the photos. Adam was very friendly to us both and I know immediately that the shoot would go well. Adam is based out of a home studio, so he has different backdrops and lighting inside his living room studio. It is a very comfortable atmosphere, again, making it much easier to get great shots. For each of the six different looks Adam took some inside the studio and then we went outside for a different lighting and feel. For this reason I feel I got such a great array of looks in a relatively short shoot! Following the photo shoot I received a dropbox file of all of my photos, in roughly three hours. I reviewed the photos with my agent and we selected twelve that were best for retouching. Adam immediately touched up the photos and sent them to me via dropbox. I had a few other finicky things I needed fixed in the photos (as per agents' request) and Adam very graciously fixed these and sent them back to me the following day. I came away with a great selection of photos that I can use for diverse roles/work. I give Best La Headshots/ Adam Southard 5 stars and fully recommend him to any and all actors. He is an outstanding photographer and also very kind and easy to work with (this is not always the case with photographers!). You will be very happy with the results!

We hired Desert Rose for one photographer for a charity event originally. But, after talking to Will, who is lovely, we decided to hire them for two photographers and their awesome photobooth! They came to our event and set everything up with no fuss. People loved the photobooth, which printed out right then and there and also could text or email photos. It was a real hit! Will and his staff are super nice and very professional and we will never need Thumbtack to find an LA area photographer again as we will be using Desert Rose ;)

Brad was fantastic! When he arrived at our location, he quickly scanned the scenery, and within seconds was able to determine the most beautiful spots to shoot. He picked several places based on existing architecture, landscape and foliage. His vision was amazing! A true photographer. I was worried about all the people in the area, but he knew how to set up the shots so it looked like we were the only ones there. He was also able to direct us into poses that may have felt unnatural, but translate wonderfully to the finished photo. The results were beautiful! I'm always concerned about color and lighting - I see so many photographers get it wrong, but our photos are truly professional quality. If you want someone who strikes a nice balance between efficiency, artistry, and reasonable pricing (and who doesn't?) then I highly recommend Brad!

I personally sought out Joe because his photography skills are unique and original. He is a very creative individual that stands out from the rest of the photographers in the greater Indianapolis area! Joe is a class act with many bright years of photography business ahead of him!

Tom is an exceptional photographer! He is very kind and has terrific qualities that stand out in his work. Aside from the amazing photographs that he takes the quality that sets him apart from other photographers is that he listens to the client. Often photographers take control in a way that doesn't necessarily produce the photographs of your choice. Tom doesn't do that. He asks questions of your wants and desires, and prepares for it. Before finding Tom I crossed off about ten other photographers who came across as arrogant, and very pushy. Tom works for you! He does the shoots the way you want them done. I hired Tom to do a maternity and newborn shoot. It was by the far one of the best experiences that I've had with a photographer. We discussed the locations prior to the shoots, and it was so fun and easy. I was very impressed by how personable Tom is. I felt as if it was a friend doing these shoots. Don't waste your time and money on photographers who pop up first on google search. Hire someone who is actually Good!

We highly recommend American Dream Camera for any photography needs especially weddings! We found American Dream Camera on Thumbtack, based on the positive reviews and ADC website. We decided to reach out and book an appointment to see if it would be a good fit for our wedding day. Booking the appointment was very easy, we received response immediately. Upon meeting Tatyana we knew all systems were go! Tatyana is an amazing person and we just had to have her be part of our wedding day. Tatyana was well prepared she brought wedding albums and all paperwork required to the meeting. The discussion of pricing (reasonably priced), contract, and terms were smooth and pleasant, we were confident with moving forward. She answered all of our questions with an upbeat excited attitude, she clearly had a lot of experience and a fun energetic yet professional personalty! We couldn't wait to see how she would capture our day. Tatyana remained in constant communication with us the entire time, from asking for the initial appointment to receiving our final photos, that really amazed us! We really felt confident she understood what we desired and also a balance of letting her run with her own artistic creativity. Her experience with Catholic weddings helped put us at ease as there are certain restrictions for photography in the church. We got way more than we bargained for with Tatyana and American Dream Camera!!! Tatyana had back up equipment, we had her for several hours including getting ready time, and the reception she was willing to go above and beyond to capture our day. Tatyana was the number one professional presence at our wedding, she surprisingly set the tone and timing for our entire day, far exceeded our expectations we were so impressed! When things may have gone off of our plan she never ever showed any signs of stress or frustration, she honestly is an inspiration, to see her work under pressure, take control to stage a photo opt or capture a particular moment was phenomenal. Tatyana is an absolute joy to work with, we are so grateful she took us on as clients. We were beyond elated when we received the photos (we received all photos in digital form small and large files via disc in the mail. Oh and a really cool slide show with music of our choice! - online and on disc!!!) from American Dream Camera, the photos Tatyana took evoke so much emotion, she is so incredibly talented and an amazing artist she is able to capture the small details and the big picture. I am really happy we gave Tatyana more freedom than restrictions when creating our wedding book and capturing the day because we honestly feel we received a better result. Our wedding book will be forever cherished and we will be forever grateful to Tatyana for such a fun day and lifelong memories. If we could heed any caution to readers, it would be, to not wait! Reach out to American Dream Camera asap to discuss your needs, we met with way too many photographers and stressed out way too long over finding the right photographer, all our worries went away when we booked Tatyana!

I had excellent experience with Haldane Morris Photography. He is so professional. He know exactly what he is doing. I spent total three hours and got so much high quality photos. His technique is different compare to many other photographers who i had been working with. With those photos you don't really need a photoshop. He also working with such a talented makeup/hair stylist Keon Cruz, very professional , his light makeup perfect for the headshot. So you can also hiring him as well, if you want to. I highly recommending Haldane Morris Photography. :) Wish you all stay beautiful:*!!!! Anastasiya Mitrunen.

Anita and Chris were the most AMAZING photographers for our wedding! They knew exactly what we wanted, they got all the photos on our check list, and they were very reasonable and honest about the time frame we had. Our wedding location was also on their bucket list, so being able to have them there was extra special. The photos turned out amazingly spectacular! I hope to work with them again in the future (maybe a maternity shoot?)

Jeff was great to work with. His communication was clear and prompt, his session was easy going and was creative with new ideas not just the same old same old, and the final touch up great. Providing all the proofs was a nice touch not all photographers do. I would recommend Jeff to anybody and would use him again.

Yanira did an amazing job and we really enjoyed having her photograph our brother in law's proposal. She was professional and courteous but not afraid to step in and get the shot. She scouted out some locations to get excellent photos before the event started. The sample shots she showed us looked amazing! Perfect lighting and composition. We look forward to receiving the full set when they're ready! I would highly recommend her and would hire her again in a heartbeat.

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.
