I'm not really one who likes taking pictures but I needed some professional headshots. I received a few quotes and after reviewing profiles and websites I selected Dominick. I really liked his work and all of his clients looked great in their pictures. I wasn't disappointed. The photos he took off me came out great and I rarely like my photos. I had a hard time choosing the main picture I would use. I highly recommend Dominick. He's professional, prompt, and most importantly, a magician with the camera. Yes. Smartphones come with apps we can use to pretend we're photographers but Dominick is the real deal. Insta-what? I highly recommend him and I'll be a repeat customer for sure.

Marc Cacho and MC Visuals were very professional. Through out my wedding planning process he worked with me and made adjustments to my contract as necessary. The day of my wedding his crew was very flexible and made sure to capture my special moments with elegance and class. I had a wonderful stress free experience. It was a blessing to be able to find a team that included photographers and a videographer at such a reasonable price.

I could not have picked better photographers. They were professional, courteous, and arrived head of the scheduled time. Kimberly checked in with me few days before to make sure that nothing had changed, and on the day of the wedding, she had several nice suggestions for shots to take, and was more than happy to oblige with any shots I wanted to take, all the while smiling and being patient. her husband worked with the groom and his party and told me that he was great. Would definitely recommend their services. I cannot wait to see the final porduct

Ed Degroat is an excellent professional photographer and is a pleasure to work with. The job was taking images of Con Brio Chorus at dress rehearsal with orchestra at Christ the King Church, Old Lyme. He worked efficiently for over two hours doing isolated and group shots of our 50 member chorus and 30 piece orchestra in color and black and white. He even did casual shots of our group at mid-rehearsal break. I recommend him highly from the quality of his work and the ease of working with him. Bruce Dasinger

Not only a talented photographer, Dave is an absolute pleasure to work with!! From the moment I booked his services for my daughter’s Bat Mitzvah to the time I received the edited photos, Dave was nothing short of a professional. Whenever I contacted him to ask a question or make a request, Dave was quick to respond and always provided me with a clear answer and was most generous with his time and attention. The photos came out beautifully, and he was able to capture the evening in a way that exceeded all my expectations. I can’t recommend Dave highly enough, and anyone hiring him is guaranteed to be in for a treat!

i would have to say that we had the best time with Jessica! She was an easy going photographer and Whenever we are in CT and need a photographer she will be our go to gal! The whole time we laughed, made jokes, and you can see that in our photos, which is great! She did a great job editing and everything else.

We loved everything about our session and photos with Agustina. She was wonderful with our little boy (1 year old) who is sometimes shy around others and he warmed up to her right away and she was able to get some beautiful shots! She took so many wonderful shots, we will definitely hire her again in the future.

Any photographer can just take a picture; Elise on the other hand makes her pictures come alive. She has an eye for making breathtaking images. She made me feel comfortable and gives excellent directions for the perfect shot. As they say, “a picture is worth a thousand words”. Elise made me look and feel live a million bucks!

We have just received the "agreement" (he sent two days ago). We will review and respond to Tom French later tonight. In all likelyhood he will be the photographer we hire for the wedding.

We hired Meghan to take pictures of my daughter in her dance costumes as we were away when her dance studio had their photographer come in. I am so happy with the results of Meghan's Photos. She has an eye for capturing the moment, she has a great personality that made my daughter comfortable and relaxed in front of the camera and the resulting photographs are stunning.

Tiffany was an amazing photographer. She was able to get beautiful pictures of both my children together, which is no small task in its own right. She is great with kids, very responsive and professional. I have recommended her to family and friends. I feel I would have paid double the price for the quality photographs I received, if I went with another photographer.

Thian is a great dance instructor. In a very short time he’s taught my daughter, son and husband the basic steps. He is also putting together an amazing dance for them. The occasion is my daughter’s sweet sixteen. I can’t say enough great things about him. In fact we like him do much that we decided to hire him as our photographer/videographer for the special day. I highly recommend him!!!

Anna from Blissful Moments is a fantastic photographer! She worked with us on our ideas for a photo shoot and also had amazing ideas of her own. She really took the time to understand what we wanted and delivered! When we went to view the photos afterward we were so impressed with her edits, the coloring she chose for certain pictures and all the shots she got! We felt like we were reliving special moments through the pictures! I would highly recommend Anna for any event or occasion! And will use her in the future!

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.
