Brian was an amazing photographer. He is dependable and has positive energy. He made our wedding so special. He is great at candid shots and captured all our special moments. He took all the photos we wanted and more. He met with us before we signed a contract and he visited our venue! He exceeded our expectations. He is organized, professional and hard working. He helped me stay calm day of the wedding and also went over and beyond typical photographer duties. He came to our wedding rehearsal so he had an expectation of the ceremony. He arrived early wedding day and stayed late. Guests commented how nice he was and how hard he was working (ex. Taking pictures the Whole time). He was alway there when we needed him. We highly recommend Brian for anyone looking for a wedding photographer.

Ruben and his team took pictures and video for my friend Fernanda’s engagement shoot and was highly recommended by her to be our wedding photographer. We thought his prices and work were great and we look forward in working with Ruben and his team.

Doug did an amazing job as my wedding photographer, videographer, and photo booth. Doug was punctual, professional and was always available to communicate. He provided a preview of my pictures the Monday after my Saturday wedding and got the rest of my photos to me super quick.

Chris is fantastic! We had a horrible experience with our wedding photographer, and so were a little hesitant to get some family photos taken. Chris was the perfect choice. He was patient, professional, and took the time to get the shots we wanted. Pictures are adorable, I am so glad I have some nice ones of our family and newborn. I would use him again.

Nicholas Jones was our photographer for our wedding at Melody Cafe, San Francisco. We were on a Cable Car ride after the wedding ceremony. Nick was outstanding. Very quick with shots, very patient with the guests, and very inclusive. The bride and groom and the guests were all very happy with the photos provided by Nicholas Jones. We could recommend Big Smiles to all of our friends. Wish we had a video of the wedding event as well. Fortunately, some of our friends took videos. Thank you for creating a very memorable wedding for us, Big Smiles!

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!

We had the pleasure of having Stefan as our wedding photographer. Not only did we have beautiful photographs of ourselves (we swear we'll never look so young an beautiful ever again), our friends and family members, but within a couple moments of Stefan being at our wedding, it was as if he was a member of our family. He captured many moments that were special, including those that we weren't even apart of (since the bride and groom are often running around talking to many other guests). Stefan has a great eye for capturing a moment without it looking contrived. He edited and got our photos to us very quickly after our wedding so that we could include them in our Thank You cards to our guests. We'd happily have him at another memorable event and recommend him to our friends and family.

I absolutely recommend Kristine and her team. She met up with my husband and I at our venue about a month before our wedding. This was a several hour drive for her which we really appreciated. She took the time to go through every detail, not only about the catering component, but the entire wedding. She clearly has a great deal of experience in the business and we got a lot of great ideas and input from her. She also was very much our advocate when dealing with the difficult bar manager at our venue. The day of the wedding she and her team set everything up perfectly. Her staff was amazing. They were all so sweet and stayed to the very end of the night making sure everything was cleaned and finished. Again I completely recommend Kristine, our wedding was amazing and a huge success which she had a big part of!

Looking for a wedding photographer on line, my fiancé and I were drawn to the pictures taken by Lorinda Keller, the owner of 831images. Amazingly, she was available on our wedding day. All of her reviews raved her praises. All the reviews were spot on, Lorinda more than exceeded our high expectations. Due to prior changes in our wedding day schedule Lorinda accommodated us by splitting our day into two sessions so that we could get all the photo coverage we wanted but still stay within our budget. This allowed us to have photos of our ceremony and with our guests. We did not have to disappear and leave our guest to get our couple photos. Lorinda made a special trip to return later so that we could do our couple shots after our guests had left and during the ideal sunset lighting. Getting everything we wanted within our limited budget was an exceptional gift. Lorinda also surprised us with returning with printed pictures from the ceremony. She even presented us with a beautifully framed photo capturing our happy moment. Everyone was so shocked that she had a chance to do all of this for us. She was even professionally prompt on an extreme high traffic and no parking day in Carmel. From the second we met Lorinda we felt at ease. Her delightful personality was a joy to be around. My groom and I, were having a small intimate wedding due to our shyness about being the center of attention. We were expecting that having our wedding photos taken was something we would have to suffer through. Boy were we wrong. After two hours of taking photos on the beach we could not stop talking about how much fun we had with Lorinda. She made the experience an unexpectedly enjoyable time that we will always treasure. Lorinda had an amazing ability to give her subjects directions while still keeping a light hearted vibe to achieve the premium result. Not only did Lorinda put us and our guests at ease but she also had great energy around our dogs. Our two Belgian Malinois are very suspicious of new people, especially if they are holding objects like a camera. In order to have them part of our ceremony we thought we would have to put up with lots of barking. Lorinda was so terrific with our dogs that they never barked at her. She was also very gracious about maneuvering around the guest dogs in attendance. She went above and beyond in getting special shots with the dogs that lived at the venue for a special gift for us to give the home owners. It takes an exceptional talent for a stranger to put dogs at ease in order to take their photo. We highly recommend Lorinda for shots of your furry friends, in addition to all your professional photo needs. If you want to have fun while getting direction so you get the most flattering, unique and artistic photos then call Lorinda.

Momentostrip was great to work with and I highly recommend their services! We used them for our October wedding and they were absolutely great! There are a lot of choices out there when it comes to choosing a photobooth partner, but I would say that Momentostrip most exemplifies the professionalism and fun that I expect out of this service. Ease of Coordination It starts with working with Bao who helps to conceptualize design of your photostrip, selection of props and coordination of day of scheduling. He was incredibly responsive and had a very fast turnaround when it came to new designs and the many requests I had. Bao not only worked well with me, but he also worked will my (now) wife and our wedding planner through all steps of the process. The Big Day On the day of our wedding, the photobooth could not have gone more smooth. Lines never piled up, guests were able to easily access it and the software/hardware was easy to navigate. Bao let me know ahead of time that he would be sending one of his newer employees, which worried me a bit, but it could not have gone better! She was super professional, helpful and fun! This is a true testament to the focus Momentostrip places on high quality customer service. Afterward the Big Day Before the weekend was even over, Bao was able to get all photobooth pictures posted to our own personalized website so that we could quickly share it with all of our guests.

Amanda was amazing! She photographed our small wedding in Carmel Valley this past Halloween. Before our event, I sat down with her and we discussed which types of shots I'd like her to capture: getting ready, walking down the aisle with my dad, the first kiss, family photos, dancing, photos around the gorgeous property, eating and celebrating with family. She took the time to edit each photo, individually, making each one the best they could be. I appreciate the time she took to make us feel comfortable, and when she took direction, as we are not models and didn't necessarily know how to stand/act. The moments she captured were perfect and we will cherish them forever. Thanks again Amanda!

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 .

Wow! We are still over the moon with what a wonderful job Catie did for our engagement shoot. My fiancé and I have never been thrilled about having our photos taken and quite honestly we were nervous to have our engagement photos done. As soon we began taking photos all those nerves went away. Catie did a wonderful job getting us to relax, laugh and be ourselves. Aside from all the fun we had during the shoot, the pictures turned out amazing! I am still receiving complements left and right from all our friends and family about how wonderful the pictures came out. My favorite comments have been our engagement photos “radiate love” and “captures the love we have for each other”. Catie was on top of everything, she was answering all my questions before the shoot, directed us to capture the best pictures and she got us the finished photos in under a week! Because of our wonderful experience, we are having Catie shoot our wedding Fall 2019.

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.
