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

Matt has made magic happen with some of the material I have given him to work with! He is talented and creative and is able to capture the essence of both people and properties alike. As a real estate agent, Matt has an uncanny ability to take shots that draw buyers in, and that is truly priceless! This guy is dedicated to his craft and customer service. He is one of the few photographers I will trust as a part of the team I put together to give my clients the best service possible.

I've used Molly for family photos, engagement pictures, wedding photos and maternity as well as newborn photography. I will never use anyone else for pictures - ever- ! Molly is absolutely incredible. She is personable, easy going, and went above and beyond to ensure our photos were what we expected. She was willing to work with our budget and I appreciate how she was able to capture the moments on our wedding day, the moment of cuteness of my new baby and my happiness at our engagement shoot.. She is very detail oriented and was willing to take shots that I suggested and loves taking direction from the customer if she feels they are more comfortable in the shots they want to receive. She has great ideas for locations and poses. She is also very prompt in getting your the results and photos to you very quickly. I also love how she comes to us whenever we have a session. she'll meet us somewhere or at our house, never makes us feel like we are on her time or that we are forced to go where she wants to shoot. I am so impressed with her work and would recommend her to anyone. I personally love Molly's sense of humor and her natural easy going demeanor. She's great at making you laugh and feel comfortable when you are doing the photo shoot, you really get into the moment and that's when she gets great shots and pulls your personality out to capture. I can't wait to book my next appointment :)

STREAMLINE STUDIO, Mr. Lagerstrom, shot one of the most perfect photo albums of a high-gloss (challenging high reflection) we ever saw. Swift scheduling. Very competitive pricing. Courteous service. Going the extra mile with excellent photo editing work, even if we only paid for raw footage. Highly recommended. Thank you, Rob!

Anne Stephenson Photo & Narrative - A highly skilled photographer and an overall awesome human being! This was the 2nd marriage for both me and my now-husband. We knew we wanted to have a photographer, but honestly, we didn’t want to spend an exorbitant amount of money. On the advice of a friend who was a photographer but was unavailable to photograph our wedding, we found Anne through Thumbtack. Our initial communication with Anne was a short phone call to determine her availability (which she was), the overall size and timing of the wedding, what we were hoping for, and scheduling a time so she could see the venue (our back deck overlooking a lake) and the reception area (a nearby restaurant). Our initial meeting with Anne was very productive. She asked all the right questions, and even some that we didn’t consider. Her thoroughness, professionalism and knowledge of her art (photography is an art), was evident in our meeting. We showed her where we would have the ceremony, and we walked around to where we could take photos after the wedding (the lake behind our house). Then we drove to the restaurant where we would have the reception, and Anne sat with us and the General Manager of the restaurant to get a full idea of how the reception would flow. Anne took notes throughout this entire meeting. It wasn’t required, but we offered Anne an opportunity to join our casual rehearsal the evening before the wedding, and she happily joined us. She took pictures during the rehearsal to test out her equipment, and to make sure she would be prepared for the framing of certain aspects of the ceremony. As the bride, I wasn’t attached to having photographs of getting prepared, or having pictures of my dress or shoes, etc. But Anne not only offered up those options, she took it upon herself to get to the wedding early and take pictures of all the preparations, anyway. I am SO GLAD she did! When the day came, Anne was able to capture the ENTIRE day, from before the ceremony, through to the end at our reception. The pictures are AH-MAZING! The area where we had our ceremony had very challenging lighting because it was outside, but the roof on our deck was tinted, and the sun was spotty in many places depending on where you stood. Nonetheless, in every shot we received in our gallery, Anne managed to find the sweet spot in all the shots— clear images, beautiful color, wonderful translations to black & white. It was a small wedding, 27 people total including Anne, plus me and my groom. She coached, cajoled, and encouraged everyone in the group shots to show their true personalities. As for the photos of me and my groom… WOW! The background of the lake and puffy clouds was spectacular, and the timing (early evening) was spot on. Anne captured it all— magical, spontaneous, heartfelt, funny, and just perfect! The same could be said of the reception— from our guests, to the toasts, to our connection with the restaurant staff, to the live music, the food and our two cakes. The whole day was absolutely and perfectly recorded with Anne’s pictures! Even after the event was over and we waited for her to cull through the hundreds of pictures she took, Anne asked us if we wanted to see some pictures in advance. We wanted to be surprised, but I was also dying to see something, so she sent us one picture. That one picture floored me, and I knew we were in for a treat. In addition to the hundreds of photos included in our final gallery, Anne created a short video (less than two minutes) highlighting a handful of shots that, if one sees it, can get the gist of our day. It was such a bonus since I didn’t recall that was part of our agreement. As a person, Anne is warm and friendly, genuine and thoughtful, creative and considerate. She is extremely easy to work with and talk to. Her communication skills and our interactions were superb— from answering emails and texts in a timely manner, to being punctual with scheduled phone calls and in-person appointments. If you read through this entire review, you MUST contact Anne yourself and see what she has to offer you. If you are prepared; have a vision of what you want for your day; can voice your ideas, concerns, and questions; then Anne can meet you where you are and deliver a spectacular record of photographs that you, your family and your friends can treasure for a lifetime!

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.

My experience with Charles was well above what my daughter and myself expected. He was very creative with all the photos. He would see think that we didn't even think about so I guess that's what make him a professional photographer. After the two days of shooting at different locations he was alway available by phone or email to answer any questions that we had. Delivery of the photo was very prompt and really great quality. Make sure you bring tissues cause his pictures had my wife in tears. Highly recomend Charles for any of your photo needs. Rusty Haggerty

Needed to deploy a photographer and direct a shoot remotely. Tim delivered big time! He was able to capture the shots needed with very little direction. Beautiful shots of our indutrial equipment at the well site. He conducted himself very professionally and communicated/coordinated the entire effort seamlessly!

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.
