Bryan is a talented photographer and great to work with. He did a fabulous job of capturing the full scope of our event. He took beautifully artistic still shots of the memorabilia, captured the joy of the occasion with amazing candid shots, and was wonderful at directing group portraits. His pictures are beautiful and we couldn't be more pleased. We will definitely use Bryan in the future.

Our experience with Kevin was awesome. Our group of seventeen consisted of eight adults and nine kids (ranging from ten months to sixteen years.) We've made a point to do pictures yearly since the kids were young. There have been other photographers that we used (all doing a very fine job), but we will definitely return to Kevin. Kevin was great with the kids, his patience was beyond expectations. We asked for journalistic photos not just portraits and he did an amazing job catching the moments that we experienced. Thank you, Kevin! ~The Winfrey's

Mike Cooper (and his co-photographer John) just photographed our wedding, and they were AWESOME! In a sentence, they are highly skilled and motivating photographers, professional businessmen, and genuinely nice people. Skilled and Motivating: Not only do our pictures look GREAT (in terms of Mike and John's photography skills), but both Mike and John were able to get us all laughing and smiling with their jokes and humorous comments. This lent to us looking natural in nearly every photo! Professional Businessmen: Mike is very responsive to e-mail, text and phone calls. He's easy to commuicate with, and was willing to cater to our needs. His contract was clear and easy to understand as well as very fair. He delivered our photos on time (via a USB drive), and made them accessible to us and our guests via a convenient website link. Genuinely Nice People: You know when you meet someone and you think to yourself, "They were really nice!", well that's what you'll think when you meet Mike and John. Constantly smiling and seemingly as happy as we were on our own wedding day, working with Mike and John will leave you feeling upbeat and positive! Rest assured, choosing Creative Exposures to photograph your wedding, or any of your other most important days will be a GREAT decision. We highly recommend them! Seth and Julia

I worked with Jim in two different professional environments. He was the main photographer for a community newspaper where I was the editor. Later, I engaged him as a freelance photographer for a high school sports magazine where I am still the editor. He is a stickler for detail and is somewhat of a perfectionist when it comes to getting just the right shot. I have found Jim to be dauntless in the pursuit of a great photo and he has a wicked sense of humor that is always entertaining! Very reliable. Completely capable of any type of photography but is particularly good with action or sports related photography.

Matthew was amazing! I am not only impressed with the pictures he took, which were awesome, but the level of service and professionalism. We had to reschedule our appointment numerous times do to construction issues (our fault), Matthew was incredibly patient with us. I have definitely found my new photographer for all my future listings. Matthew is the entire package! I highly recommend him. EXCELLENT!

I worked with Michael Teak to take some fashion-oriented photos for my portfolio and he was nothing short of phenomenal. Michael clearly commands deep knowledge of photography; I was impressed by his use of light and the both prowess and creativity he brought to the shoot. His experience as a model also allows him to give poignant advice on posing and how to create great photographs. He is also kind and a fun person to work with--he does a great job at putting people at ease. Not only did I get some great images but I learned an immense amount from Michael during the shoot and enjoyed myself. I would recommend Michael to anyone and believe he's one of the best photographers in the Denver Area I've encountered.

A++++ My home (Bet Kelev - The House of Dog) is done in K9 Judaic and it has been featured in the Rocky Mtn News when it was around. At one time Bet Kelev was to be featured on HGTV - but the series was cancelled. I treasure the oil paintings of my dogs past and present and have a major portrait of each generation gracing the living room wall. I have, in the past, spared little expense on these portraits - hiring 'big name' hotsy totsy well well known photographers. Now please don't get me wrong, I am not unhappy with the portrait of Moolah, Buddy, Ricki and Nicki nor the one of Moses, Elle and Max. But... The portrait just done by Sarah DeGroot is terrific - in a different league. Capturing black standard poodles is no small feat - and the portrait was done in the living room - not a studio unlike the others - and quite frankly far far superior - and far far less costly. (She should raise her rates!) Also note a close friend who represented nationally the Pentax account (when it was Number 1 in the US) who knows photography - was very impressed as doing black dogs 'is very very difficult.' He explained why technically but I still have no idea - other than this is the best portrait of my dogs - period. Photographing black dogs let alone my Sinai Standard poodles (Reb Simcha & Her Ladyship Goodie)is difficult - just think how well Sara would do with even easier subjects and less demanding guardians than this Man of Dog for family portraits Would I hire Sara again?

Marvin, and his business Marvelous Images, are AWESOME!! When we started looking for wedding photographers, we interviewed several before we came across Marvin's portfolio. After reviewing his portfolio we were excited to meet him and set up an appointment to see if his personality meshed with ours. We are extremely easy going and fun loving people... we wanted the same in our photograher. After meeting Marv, we decided to reserve his services before the end of our meeting. We loved the fact that he "likes to capture the moments between the moments" and were excited. We added an engagement session to our package and waited for the big day. Our engagement session went beautifully and we were so happy with the results, that we were certain the wedding photos were going to be epic. Sure enough, the images came out BEAUTIFULLY!!! Everyone had so much fun! Marvin and his assistant photographer Jackie captured so many of the unique little moments we were hoping for. We loved Marvelous Images so much that we have decided we will be doing a photo session with Marv every year for our anniversary. I will be doing my new headshots with him as well and this looks like the beginning of a wonderful relationship with an amazing photography company! Make sure you reserve your dates as early as possible... Marvin is booked pretty quickly because he is such a pleasure to work with. THANK YOU Marvelous Images!!!

I was really nervous about hiring a photographer because I wanted my grad photos to be just right (and they were not for my HS graduation!) But Anna was not only very sweet and fun to shoot with, she knew what she was doing! She did a fabulous job, and I am happy with the results. I will be calling her up for other life events too!

I have used Oatis Green Photography for 3 photo sessions and have another scheduled in 1.5 weeks. He works with the clients wants and gives suggestions when the clients aren't sure what they really are looking wanting out of their photos. So far Otis has photographed my engagement photos, wedding, my 1st bday photos of my niece, extended family photos. And in Oct he will be doing immediate family photos. I really can't speak highly enough about Otis, his personality is on point for a friendly, informative, professional photographer.

Dave is very enthusiastic about his craft. His attention to detail and creative style are unmatched. I have never had such a fun experience with a photographer before and been so pleased with the final work. I even had access to the final product within 48 hours, which is great! Most photographers will take weeks to get your pictures to you, so this was a pleasant surprise. I even recommended my brother to Dave for his upcoming wedding photos.

I can’t even begin to tell you what a wonderful experience we had with Kindra! First of all she was easy to communicate with and get something scheduled. She suggested a few different locations which I loved the options. When we arrived she was waiting for us with a smile! She was amazing with my son, getting him to focus and laugh when I didn’t think it was possible. I have had a few experiences with photographers and Kindra is by far the most professional and did the best work! She will be taking all of our future pictures that is for sure!

There isn’t enough space for me to express my gratitude to Dmitriy and Alla! I had the honor of having Dmitriy be the photographer for my Top Agent Real Estate Magazine cover and with the help of Alla’s creativity, the entire vision came to life. Dmitriy’s talent and Alla’s attention to detail are visible in every shot. His knowledge of photography and his equipment enabled him to quickly adjust to whatever scenery, lighting, weather, movements, or angle he needed to produce the perfect picture. He will leave you staring at your photographs for hours wondering how you can possibly look that good. I couldn’t be happier with the results! He is simply the best! Dmitriy and Alla are incredible and I highly and full heartedly recommend them for all of your photography needs! Team work makes the dream work, and I could not have found a better team! Thank you for everything!

I have used Romina for family pictures and my engagement photos, and she will be the photographer for our wedding in just a couple of weeks. She is amazing! I cannot more highly recommend her. The pictures she takes are phenomenal. She knows how to quickly go through and get shots whether it is a perfect sunny day or below zero temperatures (we've done both with her!) She is the perfect choice for any occasion.

Jeff is an incredibly talented, creative photographer! He is skilled in portrait and candid. He has a family of his own so he is able to work well with all ages. One of the skills I admire most is his ability to really listen to what his clients want. It literally blows my mind every time I see his work! He really is an artist. 😊

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.
