We are very happy with Chris and his works. He came on time, covered all the guests and the decoration, was very friendly with the guests while taking their pictures, and took excellent photos. We didn't have enough lighting in our party hall, which is a challenge for photography. But the photos Chris took have come out absolutely gorgeous. My experience was really great. I would highly recommend Wowza Photography.

Michelle took our newborn photos recently and they turned out beautiful! She was very easy to work with and definitely patient with our sleepy newborn parent brains and energetic toddler. I really appreciated that she took the time to make sure we were getting the shots we wanted. She showed us how things were looking as we went along. She also gave us good directions during the session. She really made everything easy and fun. If you are looking for a talented photographer who is fun and easy to work with, look no further!

Sean was an excellent photographer. He was quick, courteous and amazing. He was able to come down to my office, and take an amazingly professional portrait photo with little notice, and had it edited even quicker. His photos were amazing and he was a pleasure to work with.

Allan was the photographer for my Senior Clarinet Recital poster. I loved the unique shots and angles he caught of me. He had a very clear vision on poses, backgrounds, and lighting that I agreed with. In addition to photography, he also does poster editing. I am excited to put them up!

Nicholas did an amazing job capturing all of the special moments and details in our wedding with an articstic eye! Our friends and family are still raving about his work! He was also very accommodating and went above and beyond to film everything we asked for and more. Leading up to the wedding, he was always responsive immediately within the day if not hour and even after the wedding during the editing process he was like this! He has always been professional, polite, and friendly. He got along great with our photographer. He got our wedding video to us very quickly and edited everything beautifully while making sure to cleverly add in our special songs and props. If you are looking for someone professional, creative, friendly, accommodating, and affordable for your special occasions look no further!

Our family is so thrilled with our experience with Tina Maciej! From the very start, her communication is wonderful! We really appreciated that since we are a busy family, & were very nervous about scheduling & making time for a photo session. As Todd mentioned, she was prepared at the park & we just had to show up and smile! I would also like to mention that she sent us a "Style Guide". For a family that doesn't know how to dress for a photo shoot, this was extremely helpful! Any photographer that says to lather up on mascara is "MY" kind of photographer & obviously knows what she's doing. And any photographer that can get my husband to smile is a Miracle Worker! SO, we received our pictures the very next day (which is much sooner than the already "fast" timeframe she gave us of 2-3 days. WOW!) and they melted my heart!!! They were SO beautiful! How did she make us look so great? Thank you sooo much! Your family will not be disappointed booking an appointment with Tina Maciej Photography. She is an overall great, kind, & extremely easy person to work with. And when she says her rate is reasonable, it is beyond reasonable! She is a gift to families!

Verified review

Stefan was the official photographer of my daughters engagement pictures. Not only did they depict the energy of the moment, but also captured them during a certain light of day, so that there was that added element of depth in shadows and reflections that enhanced a very personal occasion for the betrothed. He showed a rare and inspired technique and passion for capturing these special photos, that my daughter hired him again for her more personal wedding photos. He raises the bar of photography to one beyond work, and certainly did not disappoint. He's our definite go-to for future family milestones. Thank you for coming through, Stef. It was awesome working with you!

Our experience with De Joy Photography was truly excellent. Our wedding was originally all outdoor, but unexpected rainy weather caused us to make several last minute changes. Amber was so flexible and creative with the weather, and got some beautiful pictures. She even got some pictures of us under a rainbow. With her help, we embraced our rainy day wedding, and she captured our day beautifully. She was so patient with my husband (who doesn't exactly love getting his picture taken lol), and was great with my 6 year old step daughter. I would HIGHLY recommend her!!

Verified review

Meeta has a quiet artistic presence and makes one feel at ease. We’ve worked with a few photographers in the past, who use “continuous shooting mode” to get one image; but not Meeta. She waits for the moment then clicks one or two perfect shots with confidence. We met her at an evening party and her photos were exceptional, she made everyone look beautiful. As an interior designer, I recently designed and remodeled our home, and hired Meeta for a home family photoshoot with our active toddler and MIL. She was flexible, worked well with our family, and exceeded our expectations. She was on time, decisive with shots and delivered final photos promptly. I highly recommend Meeta for all your photography needs.

Jason was absolutely brilliant. He was very responsive and helped me plan everything perfectly for our surprise engagement. On the day he was great too and the photos were amazing. My Fiance and I were delighted. Then after the results were great when he touched up a few photos for us. He has a genuine passion and skill for photography which is apparent when you speak to him and see his work. I could not recommend him enough!

Kavya could not have done a better job with our engagement photos! She was prompt to reply and arrange a rather quick appointment with us as we were on a deadline. She was friendly and professional throughout the shoot, providing the right amount of suggestions/tips to get the perfect shots without being overbearing. She is also quite adventurous, climbing down rocks with camera in hand to get to a beach in order to get the perfect shot! I ended up with so many great pictures that she sent within 2 days after the shoot. I would definitely recommended her for all your photography needs.

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.

We were expecting our pictures to be delivered few days after the shoot but he did all the work in less than 24 hrs and they’re all beautiful! I would definitely recommend him and hire him again!

I've known Chip for 14 years, he has been a teacher of sorts. His photography, unbiassed by me, is beyond belief. Really amazing, top notch and professional. Even if I didn't know him, I would recommend him from his portfolio alone.

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.
