My wife, Teresa, and I were fortunate enough to have Richard Hartog as our wedding photographer. Richard was nothing other than professional, endearing, and added a sense of humor to our amazing day. Richard has an eye for detail and had the ability to see our wedding experience the way we envisioned it. At the church, he captured the ceremony beautifully while remaining stealth and considerate of the event. He arrived at the hotel early that day to take shots of the bride and bridal party getting ready and stayed until the last guest had left the reception late that evening. We received the photo package within only a few short days and they were perfect. Richard took well over 500 photos for us capturing every detail of the entire day. Even months after the wedding, Richard still keeps in contact with us to see how we're doing and how married life is treating us. We will recommend Richard Hartog to anyone who is looking for an amazing photographer!

Joshua gave me exactly the headshot I was looking for. He really listened to me, and he was great at getting a good "look" from me. I love that I had so many shots to choose from. Technically everything was excellent--lighting, retouching, etc. Also Josh's communication skills were really good. We had to go back and forth a bit for scheduling, but he always got back to me right away and he was really flexible. I also thought the cost was very reasonable. I would recommend Josh to anyone looking for photography of any kind--wedding, product, portrait, whatever.

Steve was an awesome wedding DJ!! He was always available via phone, email, etc and really took to time to make sure our wedding was thoroughly planned. He even took a significant amount of time helping me troubleshoot my wedding slideshow! I didn't have a wedding coordinator but didn't need one because he kept us on track and continuously notified is about upcoming events throughout the night. Oh yeah, and great music selection! Thank you so much, Steve!!

He was our DJ for our wedding and he was wonderful. He's very easy to communicate with & listened to our requests. He made time to talk to me frequently leading up to the wedding. The day of the wedding he showed up early & set everything up - which was so great! And did a wonderful job of really reading the crowd and keeping the mood fun & light. I highly recommend his DJ services and am so glad we worked with him!

I found Natalie on Thumbtack. I was looking for an affordable but professional photographer for my wedding day and that's exactly what I got. I am so glad that I chose her. She was so sweet and professional. She did a consultation with us before the wedding and we went through a list of moments and things that I wanted her to capture specifically. I am very happy with the end result. The pictures came out beautifully. I especially like the way that she ushers the effect of natural sunlight. She did a beautiful job capturing our special day! I would definitely recommend Natalie!

It has only been such a short time from our wedding and we are still so in awe of the work Doug did. He recommended two photographers for our wedding and even though I didn't think it was very big and necessary, I'm so glad I did! He and Bryan were able to be at different locations and have different views and it was perfect! They were easy to get along with, funny, personable and everyone loved them. The pictures came out absolutely incredible and the turnaround time to completion was impressive. They captured all of our requests plus things we wouldn't have thought of. You can never have a "do-over" for wedding pictures and I am so grateful to Doug and Bryan for the impeccable job they did. I would highly, HIGHLY recommend them to anyone for any photography needs!

She captured candid moments of my family with beautiful photographic composition. For my wedding, she took tons of pictures, capturing all our important moments. We have a wonderful collection of memories thanks to Roxana and we will be happy to work with her again!

Planning a wedding is an experience in itself with so much work and details that need to be done. Once my husband and I decided to use Steve as our photographer it was one less stress taken off our minds. Steve put our minds at ease and gave us great ideas to capture all the meaningful memories at our wedding. The storytelling photos are so special and unique that really made us chose Steve as the photographer for our wedding. They show our love as a couple and the fun our guests at had the wedding. Thank you Steve! Barbara

She was fantastic all around. She arrived early to get set up. She took tons of pictures but you hardly knew she was there. She was so respectful of the wedding party and guests and she got lots of candid pictures which was what the bride wanted. We cannot wait to see her pictures!

Bernadette was incredible to work with! She was so patient and helpful guiding us through the process when we had so many other decisions to make. She was extremely accommodating for all our special requests and contributed some great ideas of her own the day of. She captured the fun and most importantly the emotion of our day so beautifully that we will be reminded of it for the rest of our lives when we look at her pictures. Bernadette is the best choice for your wedding photographer!

My fiancé and I used Craig X Sotres photography for our engagement photos, what a professional. The picks came out great and the lighting was done unbelievable well. We did several outfit changes and he couched us through the shots with ease. The final product was amazing. He was highly recommended and we're just passing along our positive experience and confirmation. We would've looked to him for the wedding photos. However, we are having a destination wedding on an island❤🌴. Thanks, Craig

My now-husband and l hired Raymond to shoot our simple courthouse wedding with a few family members present and could not be happier with the photos and with Raymond! Raymond was responsive to all of my questions leading up to our special day and was a pleasure to work with. He had great ideas for shots and made us all feel at ease. We now have so many beautiful photos capturing our day and could not be happier. We also hired him to shoot our upcoming party to celebrate our marriage. We are very happy to have found him!

I hired Yana to take some family photos and individual photos of my grown sons. Even though it was cold and windy the day of the shoot she was able to get us to relax and got some really great shots. It was very hard to pick just a few so I ended up with 12 different poses! Her photography really caught the essence of my family and I would highly recommend her for any individual/family/portrait photography even though she was a little more expensive than some others photographers.

This person was so amazing. She took the best video of my wife and i’s wedding day! Not only was the footage great, but she was extremely professional and a pleasure to be around. My wife loved her personality, which made it very easy to act natural when someone is filming them. She got videos of things that I didn’t even get to experience myself as the groom, so watching back again was like a new experience in itself. Her prices are great for the amazing quality I received. I would recommend her for any event, photo and video. We hired her for video, but she took better pictures than the photographer we hired. Thank you Danyell! 5 stars all the way.

When planning a wedding it's easy to get overwhelmed with all the details! Finding the right Photographer was a big burden on my thoughts. Erin Wyatt exceeded all my expectations & put all my fears to rest. Somehow through her lens she captured all the love & joy between us, not only between us but also in the faces & interactions with our wedding party & guests. Looking back at our wedding photos brings such a smile to my face. I'm so grateful that we found her to be a part of our day!

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.
