We hired Richard to capture moments of our wedding on 10/14/16 and couldn't have asked for a better person to spend the time with. Richard has a creative mind and a fun spirit to get those reluctant to participate, participating! Hire Richard, you won't be disappointed!

Kevin was our wedding photographer in Breckenridge. In short, he was fantastic. Super nice guy, great to work with, and immediately put us at ease. Very professional, and also creative in trying some interesting shots. Also very helpful with designing our album. Photos and album turned out great. Highly recommended.

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.

We had a relatively small wedding (70 people) and I was worried that the party atmosphere of the wedding would be a dud but Matt was amazing and made sure everyone had a great time. He accommodated just about all of our requests, and when people began to tire out he moved to slower music which got a fresh batch of dancers on the floor. I had guests and the people working at the venue say that our wedding was the most fun wedding event they had experienced all summer and that they had not seen so many people filling up the dance floor and having fun! I could not have picked a better DJ, thanks Matt!

Ben did the photography for my friends wedding and the pictures turned out amazing! After the wedding I purchased a 16x20 metal photo for their wedding gift and it turned out absolutely amazing! It was a quick turn around and he made time to meet with me so I could get the picture as soon as possible! I would highly recommend him for pictures!

Rebekah was my wedding photographer on June 2nd, and she was wonderful! From start to finish, she was responsive and very sweet. The way we did it was to send her a list of the pictures we wanted in order, and then she kept the list for the day of. We didn’t meet before the wedding, but she is great at communication beforehand!! Our pictures are beautiful! She did an excellent job. We are really thrilled with how they turned out! Definitely be willing to/have someone who can take charge if you have lots of family. Rebekah is focused on her work and soft spoken. Overall, we would definitely recommend her and had a great experience!!

Everyone always told me the one thing to never skimp on in my wedding was the photography. When my husband and I found "Head above Heart," we instantly fell in love with the beautiful colors and the dramatic settings in his work. He was knowledgable, friendly, and energetic the day of the wedding. Unlike most photographers who just get everyone to pose and look stiff, Kevin captured everyone in their own element, happy and it seemed as if he wasn't a photographer, but rather a member of our family. I would highly recommend him to anyone and he is at the top of my list to be used again. His adequate pricing, friendly demeanor, and overall expertise make him the best photographer I have seen in quite a while.

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 and I were colleagues at Rosetta Stone, where as an art director I saw tens of thousands of photos. When you’re responsible for picking that perfect photo for over 20 plus years, you understand what makes a good picture. Needless to say, when we were looking for a wedding photographer, the bar was set very high. Beyond a fair price we wanted someone who’d listen (art directors are pretty picky about quality) to our desires for what would be, by all measures, the biggest day of our life and a day we'd look back to again and again. I’m 100% confident we chose the right person of the many that were available. From the tiny details in my wife’s dress to the expansive views of the scenery, he captured our day in a visual narrative infusing meaning, creating relationships, expressing emotion—it’s what I love about his work. You see, Jeff knows his equipment, he knows light, he knows composition, but these are the elements that help construct a good photo. From the warm and calming way he greeted us to the way he faded into the surroundings only to appear when it was absolutely necessary, Jeff wrote our story in a way that literally shaped our memory of those moments and we will be forever grateful for his care and artistry.

Barry Meriash did an excellent job of photographing our wedding. Before the wedding he was available to talk with us, address our concerns and listen for what we wanted. He showed up properly prepared and took charge of the situation with a cheery countenance in a way that left everyone feeling respected and happy and added to the quality of the event. Barry knew exactly what needed to be done and arranged the family groupings very efficiently. Some of the older folks were taken from us in the months that followed, so we are very glad we had such beautiful photographs to remember them by. Barry’s creativity and ability to think outside the box is evident in his work. For example, the photograph of my granddaughter, one of the flower girls, throwing the rose petals into the air so they billowed out around her was extraordinarily beautiful, and it now sits, framed, in our living room. He also captured the cosmic moment when my soon-to-be husband lifted the veil from my face and I saw him as an ethereal being. Barry’s camera also unobtrusively captured one of the aunts having a loving exchange with my mother. Barry Meriash is the epitome of the professional photographer and we are very pleased with the results. His photographs not only lovingly capture the family groupings but also capture the mood—serenity, excitement, etc.—of the event. Barry has produced photographs of extraordinary quality, such as the painting-like portrait of the Hoffman family.

    Jodi's professionalism, and most importantly, patience and creativity are what we missed about her when she moved to Colorado. She basically became part of our family. Then she made the decision to come back to Chicago and our prayers were answered. She started off taking our engagement pictures and watched us grow while photographing our wedding, then maternity pictures and then newborn pictures for our first child Cooper, all the way up to his first birthday, then she was able to come back to do our second son Carson's first birthday and family pictures. She has a wonderful talent that is easily recognizable as she's able to capture memorable photo after memorable photo. We strongly recommend you invite Jodi into your family. -Kay Family (Illinois)

    I don't think we can say enough about our amazing experience with Liefde for our wedding! We initially had a friend who was supposed to photograph our Boulder wedding but had a last-minute change that made him unable to attend. Liefde saved the day. With very little time to get to know us, our personalities, and our style, they jumped right in and captured the day perfectly. Brian and Femke are the perfect pair-- they're aligned in their goal to tell the story of the day without getting in the way. They both work together so well. They know each other's styles and photographic strengths, and they utilized their strengths to capture the best and most creative photos. We are so thrilled with the result! They didn't miss a detail, the photographs were incredible, and their "shoot and share" package meant we got to share all the photos with everyone at the wedding without the stress of added costs. You should book Liefde. You're in incredible hands! Thank you, Brian and Femke, for telling our story so beautifully!

    Katie is absolutely amazing. I cannot rave about her enough. We have been coming back to her for years- YEARS. We originally needed a photographer for an upcoming project for our clothing brand and were, to be completely honest, disappointed with the work of other photographers in Colorado. We couldn't find anyone with a unique eye and talent that fit the style we were looking for, until we randomly stumbled upon Katie via Instagram. We liked her work and decided to take a chance on this girl we didn't even know. It was one of the best decisions we ever made. She proved to not only be extremely talents, but also genuinely friendly and absolutely hilarious. Since then, we've come to Katie for every project and shoots we need- both photos for professional purposes and personal, like weddings and portraits. We are incredibly blessed by this girl and highly recommend her for anyone looking for any kind of photography need.

    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.
