I recently got acting headshots from Brian. It was great working with him! He was very friendly, and I felt comfortable enough to try out some awesome expressions/poses/etc. We would do a series of shots, then look at them on his laptop so that I could see what was working and what wasn't and adjust accordingly. With previous photographers, they would just do a bunch of shoots, then show me the photos online the next day. Brian found a great hair and makeup professional who made me look and feel beautiful! And finally, I appreciated that Brian was really flexible about timing, editing, background setup, etc. Thanks Brian!

It's wonderful to have Stavan as our photographer on our ceremony day. He is very professional, accommodating, patient and easy to talk with. He showed up early on the day and captured the precious moments throughout the event. He knew his work and he sent us the edited copies pretty fast. More importantly, the photos turned out awesome. We felt really comfortable working with Stavan and would highly recommend him to anyone who wants his/her precious memories to be photographed! To note that our request was made kinda last minute, but Stavan handled it promptly and considerately. 100% recommend.

Doug and Melinda went above and beyond for my wedding. It rained on my wedding day but that didn't stop our photographers from taking beautiful rain shots, it actually added to the magic! We originally wanted photos at the Palace of Fine Arts but that wouldn't have worked out with the rain, so we came up with a plan B after the wedding ceremony and Doug was flexible with the sudden change. Later that day, my mother and my aunt could not figure out how to pin my bustle, Melinda stepped in like a pro and saved the day! Not only are they great photographers but they really helped us keep the flow of the wedding. We saw a preview of our wedding photo gallery and it was beautiful, we cannot wait to see all of the photos and create our album. We especially loved the candid shots during the wedding ceremony as well as the rain shots.

Allan is of the best photographers I have ever worked with. His punctuality, friendly demeanor, faithfulness, and passion for capturing memories that will last a lifetime are his best qualities in business. He has all the right equipment, talent, and skill, and comes at a great price! I used him for my graduation photos and now use one of his photos for my linked in profile picture. He's an awesome guy and I'm really glad I hired him!

Kathleen Schwartz is our go-to photographer for our real estate projects and advertising. Her natural "eye" for the best shot, and the patience to get it is the hallmark of her work. She is completely reliable and dedicated to producing the highest results. We use her without hesitation for our most important clients and would be lost without her.

Nic came ahead of time on the day of the event. He coordinated well with the photographer. We hired him for the raw footage of the event and highlights video. He was very responsive over email, and provided raw footage of the event within a week. Highlight video contained well selected scenes.

Very high quality work! Kavya did a great job for our pre-wedding photoshoot. We shot at 2 locations in the golden hours (morning and evening). She helped us in choosing the locations and outfits, and brought some cool props as well! She was very prompt in replying to our queries, and gave us the final photographs in a timely way. The photos looked awesome. We used them at many places in our wedding (even had some put up poster-size at the venue!)

Booking photo session with Mr. Darius was so easy. He is very responsive and professional. Out little one did not cooperate that much as he was fuzzy and giving us tantrum, but Mr Darius tried his best to capture his one second smile in between crying and mad faces. An hour session took over two and Mr Darius didn't mind it at all which is so awesome, he understood that and hour is not enough for a fuzzy baby. I would love to have him again as a photographer in any occasion. Thank you Mr Darius.

I recently had the pleasure of meeting Amanda and having her take some pictures of me. I typically do not like having my picture taken, but she created an environment in which I felt comfortable and relaxed. She has a very pleasant personality and the quality of her photography left me feeling extremely satisfied with the overall experience.

Gregory was very helpful finding the time to be flexible with our schedule along with locating great locations to do our family session. We traveled from Iowa to Santa Cruz, Ca for our family vacation and wanted it to be memorable since all of our children and grand children were together along with celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary. Gregory took many beautiful photos along with some candid moments of the grandchildren. We look forward to having Gregory as our photographer again when we visit Santa Cruz again .

Paulina is the best! She makes you feel comfortable through all the awkward poses ha and knows how to make you laugh and not feel so self-conscious. She makes shoots a fun experience. She will work like crazy to create a perfect product for you because she cares and has the technical skills to do so. She has created numerous polished works that I've been happy with. Will use again in the future for all my professional photography needs!

Wayne was great! He met us on a Saturday. Gave us a timeline and finished even before his estimate. We are very happy we had him restore this very old family photograph from the 1920's that was damaged. Definitely recommend!

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.
