I recommend Danielle very highly. My husband and I did an engagement photoshoot last night. Danielle was on time, very fun and adventurous for creative pictures, puts you at ease, she loves what she does and that makes it great because you know the work will be good. We had a sunset shoot and it was perfect! She knew where to go, how to pose and also was open for more ideas if we wanted. We were there before the sunset so had fun before during and after it. We cannot wait to see all the photos! Thank you Danielle :) PS: she will be our wedding photographer as well.

Sean Te and his co-photographer worked my wedding and also did my engagement session. They were great and very professional they arrived early to get pictures of the bridesmaids getting their makeup and hair as well as other photos that are taken at the beginning of a wedding. They went above and beyond to make sure they got all the shots I asked for. One of them even knew how to lace up a corset and bustle a dress. Which came in handy when my bridesmaids forgot how to do it. If you are looking for a great photographer who is willing to go the extra mile to make sure your day is photographed with great detail this is your guy! Thank you for everything and we will definitely use your services again for our year anniversary pictures.

Heather did such a wonderful job during my photo shoot. Before the shoot she helped me prepare very well by creating a Pinterest board for potential looks and conference calls to discuss parking, location, hair and what type of makeup will look best in the pictures. During the shoot she was very friendly, punctual, and made me feel at ease while taking the pictures. She was very professional, outgoing, friendly, and made sure I got the best shots. After the photoshoot, I was very surprised how quickly Heather uploaded the photos, she also kept me updated the entire process. Everyone who saw Heather "in action" was very impressed and now want to book her! If you want quality service, photos, and a great photographer, please book Heather! Thank you again Heather, for such a great photoshoot and making my birthday special!

First of all Pao i want to say thank you for making us happy. Pao is very professional when it comes to his job his always on time. He did a couple shoot one for my engagement and the other one is for my wedding. its not often that you find a VERY GOOD/ EXCELLENT photographer/videographer and at same time HONEST people. my husband and i are so busy i never know that my husband already pay them and i give them another envelope the payment and a gift. they already leave the place but Pao and his partner came back telling us. that i give them to much money. My family and my visitors in my wedding are glad to hear that in this crazy world good people are still exists. Pao and his partner are not just very good at their job they are honest too. Fyi our engagement photos are extremely pleased....will update about the photos of our wedding soon. To all the couples planning for the best wedding photographer/videographer i recommend this person as soon as he start holding his camera he cant stop!!! The best!!!!

As a bride on budget wedding photography can be extremely overwhelming. We are a simple couple who was interested in natural light photography to capture our special day. Our theme was modern vintage with beachy vibes and Olga nailed it from the very beginning. from the first glance of her website we could tell that she was more than capable of shooting the natural romantic look we were looking for. She was willing to work within our budget and came very well prepared to our first (and only) meeting. Her package included a complimentary engagement shoot, which was wonderful because we didn't have a chance to get one done. We wanted to include our energetic pup in the photo shoot as well, since pets were not allowed oat our wedding venue. She was totally open to the idea and did an AMAZING job capturing our little love. She arrived on time and ready to rock! It was a sunset shoot so she was focused on getting us in position for the perfect angles and had no problem kindly asking folks to to step aside so we can have the proper backdrops. It took her little under an hour to get all the shots we requested and they turned out absolutely adorable. We felt so comfortable and in very good hands for the big day. On the day of, she arrived to our hotel early and had already begun taking pics. She worked seamlessly with our videographer and maneuvered through our busy bridal with ease to get all the necessary getting ready shots. The Groom's suite was downstairs from ours so it was a breeze for her to get his pre-ceremony shots as well. With such a large wedding party (23 in total!) Olga did a great job identifying and highlighting all the VIPs such as the MOH, BM, grandparents and parents, while documenting all the personality of our big bunch. She even kindly offered to escort me and a few of bridesmaids to the venue. Let's just say it was the most memorable ride of life! Olga is a true professional and will do anything in her power to make sure her clients are taken care of and this was no exception. The wedding photos turned out absolutely amazing! My only wish there with two of her, to capture twice the memories. Oh, it was also extremely windy for a summer day. She did a fantastic job of using the elements to her advantage and creating some truly romantic shots. We did go an hour over schedule and Olga had no problem staying later to make sure she covered all the main events of the night. She even sent us a few pics to cherish while on our honeymoon. I can't thank her enough for working with us and recommend her 100%.

Awesome! We all know pictures are one of the most important parts of the wedding. What an amazing crew this guy has. I had them for the entire big day. He did all of the getting ready shots. Even had a drone to get some amazing air photos. The wedding was flawless. Russ even put together a timeline for me because I was so overwhelmed. They got every shot I could have possibly asked for! They were extremely professional and very helpful. I honestly can not say enough good things about this team. Customer service is huge to me. They went beyond exceptional customer care. You will be happy you chose them! Thanks again for everything! You made our day a little bit better by being a part of it! -Marissa

If you are looking for photographers look no further! Dia and her husband are true professionals who created wonderful memories for us. They braved the rain for our wedding day, all while still taking truly wonderful photos. They made every effort to please our timeframe and we couldn’t have asked for more. When we head back to Huntington Beach for more photos we now have found our photographers. Thank you guys once again

Patrick has done our family photos twice now and both experiences were fun, effortless, and comfortable. No forced smiles, no cheesy poses or filters...just really great photos of my family. My children both love him and as a result, he has managed to to capture some of my favorite photos of them which is not an easy feat particularly with my daughter who is very camera shy and reluctant and difficult to photograph! Patrick will be our family’s photographer for as long as he is willing which is a testament to how capable and talented he is if you consider that we have a photographer in our family who is willing to do our photos for free 🙈 We love him and the amazing images he takes of our family but his action shots particularly of surfers are the most breath taking. Follow him on Instagram if you ever want to take a mental retreat to the beach. They are truly amazing and calming to look at. @patricksanfordphotography

We found Lacey when we were looking for someone to take pictures for our family to celebrate my mom’s 70th. We are from out of town so we were a little nervous about choosing the right photographer, but everything went better than we imagined. Lacey was very patient and friendly and her pictures are the best ones that my family and I have ever taken. I’ve attached a few. She was able to capture everyone’s personalities perfectly! Thank you Lacey!!

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.
