Marc and his team were extremely professional, prompt, prepared, respectful and an overall joy to work with. Marc is an extremely reasonably priced photographer whose work exceeded our expectations for our engagement shoot; we cannot wait to see what he will do with our wedding photos! We highly recommend Marc as a photographer and will definitely Ben using him again in the future.

Kim and Ben were absolutely wonderful to work with. The day of the wedding they came to the hotel and started taking photos as soon as they came into the room where I was getting ready, and they didn't stop taking pictures for the next 7+ hours! Initially Ben went with my husband and Kim stayed with me for the initial pictures and having the two photographers definitely made the pictures before the ceremony much easier. They were extremely professional and got great pictures without being in your face. During the actual ceremony they got so many great shots with me barely noticing them moving around us. I have been to other weddings where the photographers get right in your face or in the way of your guests and this was not the case at all! Many of my guests even commented on how great of a job they did! With having a winter wedding there were of course concerns about the weather and Kim assured me that they would make it to the wedding no matter what, which was very comforting leading up the the big day. They both seem to really love what they do and it shows! All of the pictures came out phenomenal, there were so many fantastic shots that now I am left with the difficult decision of choosing what ones I want to have printed for my house! I would highly recommend Kindred Photography for your wedding or other photography needs!

Debra was our wedding photographer for our wedding in Old Lyme, CT. I can't emphasize enough how satisfying our experience was. She is very professional with a wealth of experiences in wedding photos. She was always prompt in emails, meeting up, and on the wedding day despite the treacherous road condition due to snow. She also took the time to meet us up beforehand. We also found that she is creative, artistic, and flexible. Most of all, she understood our needs and her service was affordable. You don't have to break the bank to record your special day or rely on your friends' or families' smart phone photos. We highly recommend her.

Augustina did our wedding photos and they are amazing. She was engaging and got shots of everyone, even the folks who typically avoid the camera. She went above and beyond to make people feel comfortable and she thought outside the box to get some creative pictures in addition to more traditional ones.

Rebekah is an INCREDIBLE photographer. She is an artist. Her work tells a story. My husband and I are so grateful to have had her as our wedding photographer. She was thorough and professional. Her kind genuine spirit put us at ease- as a result the photos she took on our wedding day are natural, beautiful, and reflect our love. Rebekah is energetic and passionate about her work. I remember seeing her run ahead on the beach, crouching down and doing what she needed to capture moments as we walked together with our families for the first time. We cherish these photos. In the editing and delivery process we had constant communication and were overjoyed with the end result. I would recommend her to any of my dearest friends knowing that they would have a great experience. You can count on Rebekah to see and capture those special and unforgettable moments.

We were trying to stay within budget for our wedding, and she was very understanding and I feel like for engagement and wedding photos together the price was more than fair. Would definitely book with her again!

I found Tom French Photography online when looking for a photographer for our wedding. I needed something within my budget and I liked that he would charge by the hour. He was very responsive to emails and phone calls leading up to the day, and on the day he was punctual, polite, and encouraging. He was very patient with our crazy family and even spent a little extra time to make sure he got all the shots we wanted. In addition, we got the pictures back incredibly fast, within 2 weeks of the day! I have friends who sent 5 times as much and had to wait months for their pictures. when we did get the pictures, the quality was amazing. He did a combo of black and white and color photos He is a true professional and very talented. I would highly recommend Tom for any event!

WOW -- we just received our photos, and they have us speechless, and reliving the most magical day ever in the best way possible! Thank you sincerely for capturing our families' joy, our love, and the wonderful festivities of our wedding day. These are so real and gorgeous. We are so so grateful to have had you present to capture these gems! Thank you, thank you, thank you!! My husband and I were just talking about how you for created such a fun experience taking photos at our wedding. We enjoyed every moment, and your easy-going and curious approach helped contribute to our being able to do this! There was a photographer at a wedding we recently attended who set us up in these very cheesy poses, with pretty ridiculous results. Just to say we truly appreciated our experience working with you! We absolutely love our engagement photos, and can't wait to share the photos from the wedding! I would love it if you tagged us in the photos. I seriously can't get over how amazingly talented you are. If you ever need a client reference or anything (not sure that's a thing), consider us game! Thanks so very much!

    Our family has used WhipCityPhotos on many occasions. John has photographed my brothers wedding, various family events for us, along with my son's wrestling last year. I have already booked John for my upcoming wedding in June 2011. I am relieved, knowing I will have a really good photographer on hand. Another nice thing about his service is that the prices are very reasonable. I would recommend John to anyone looking for a professional photographer at a very affordable price! - Joel Mathewson

      First of let's start with the customer service! As soon I purchased my session, I was called by a customer service rep! The girl on the other end was personable and she was full of energy. The process was explained throughly and she answered any questions I had. After that, a confirmation email was sent to my email to remind me of my session and all suggestions of things I may need for that day. To top it off , I was also emailed examples of the photographers work to give me an idea of what photoshot I may want to have. This studio is super professional. Can't wait to go !!!!

      Jackie came highly recommended by a family friend, and when we first met her I could clearly see why! You could really tell she had a lot of passion around what she does as a photographer. She did our wedding this past Saturday, and she was incredible. It was a super stressful and amazing day (as you could imagine), and she was fantastic at keeping the mood light. She was so easy going, and had us, our family, and our wedding party laughing most of the day. She just blended right in! What was so great was that when I booked she kept in contact up until our date. She helped us with coordinating, and asked those important questions I wouldn't think to ask. She got to know me, and my husband's personality. All in which she took account and I sincerely appreciated it. I have already seen some preview photos and they have blown us out of the water. I actually cried because she captured -us-. I can't wait for the rest! I would highly recommend anyone to go to Jackie and her team. They were wonderful.

      I can’t say enough about Moxie ...my name is Skye and I am the bride who just had my wedding photographed by Kelsey. She went above and beyond our whole wedding and captured more than we expected. She managed to get shots of our grandmother that we lost days after our wedding that we will cherish forever. From the moment she walked in the door at my house I felt like I knew her for many years. She has such a warm loving vibe and made everyone feel comfortable while she was capturing their picture. My kids adored her and loved getting their pictures done by her. Thank you so much Kelsey from both the bride and groom you did an amazing job!!! I will be recommending you to everyone I know!!

      I am so thankful we choose Meagan to capture all of our wedding day moments!! Our pictures show all the greatest memories of our special day and will last us a lifetime! Meagan is unbelievably talented. I have had nothing but wonderful compliments on our wedding pictures and though scenery has a lot to do with that, I know so much of it is because of Meagan. Meagan's patience, professionalism, skill, and artistic eye were all deeply appreciated. I highly recommend Meagan to anyone looking for a great photographer! Love, Jason and Jenna Dalrick

      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.
