This was a truly AWESOME photo shoot. Tina is so energized and enthusiastic about her work as a professional photography it electrifies her studio. Her positive energy and love of her work / professional is intoxicating. Of the many photo shoots I have been in during my life and career, this was the MOST fun, pleasant and enjoyable. Tina gets 5 Stars + from this client! (Photos later, I promise.)

Winstead is very professional and very good at what he does! He has done my hair (cut and highlights) makeup and also photography. I have referred him many times to my friends and family for hair and photography work and they all were also very pleased.

I had a newborn shoot with my 2 week old son. The day of the shoot I brought my 5 year old daughter with me. Not only did he do beautiful photos of my son, he took wonderful photos of my my son and daughter together. I will be using Monumental Arts for all of my photography needs in the future.

I’m so glad we worked with Joshua Fernandez Photography for our special event! He was very responsive from my initial inquiry and throughout all of our communication. Josh was flexible and professional throughout the photo shoot. He put all of us at ease and it shows in the final product. Now the trick is to pick our favorites from ALL the many great photos to choose from. We’re looking forward to working with Josh again in the future!

Our family did a mini-session with Hassan. The price was reasonable and he was very professional. The quality of his photography was really great and we've used his work for holiday cards, party invites, social media and our family album. We plan to use him again the next time he offers his mini-sessions.

Simply amazing! My husband and I are completely obsessed with the sample photos that Mr. Mang has provided us from the day of our wedding. Mr. Mang has a keen eye on capturing genuine moments, and also knows some of the best spots in DC for outdoor photography! We can't wait to see the rest of the photos. I would highly recommend Mr. Mang!

We worked with Jeff for our son's 1st birthday party and could not be happier with his work and the resulting photos! Jeff took the time to chat with me before the party to understand what we were looking for, as well as to let us know how he typically approaches events like these. Jeff was very punctual on the day of the party and got right to work. He got so many wonderful shots of the decorations, the guests, and the smash cake - and did so in a very un-intrusive way! The different angles and lighting that he utilized really made the resulting portfolio unique and special. Also of note is that Jeff's pricing is extremely reasonable for the quality of work he does. I would highly recommend Jeff to anyone looking for photography services for these types of events.

I found Joe Halpin's photography webpage, liked what i saw there so called him to see about getting some pro photos for my music business. He was friendly and customer-oriented from the start, asking questions to help me figure out what exactly i was looking for. I went to his home studio, the session was easy and fun - and i LOVE my photos!

I hired Leslie to do a photo shoot of a company meeting I was hosting in Washington DC. Leslie was great. She was very easy to communicate with in advance - I was coming to an event from out of town and she made it really easy to work with her. She captured great moments and photos turn out really well. She also does a same day delivery of key shots and then had 100s of the event photos edited and ready for me within a week! I recommend Leslie for event photography and will use her if my company is in DC area again.

Working with JustInFocus Photography was a good experience from beginning to end. He took my graduation photos for me and they turned out perfect! Even through our weather related scheduling conflicts he worked with me to find a time that worked for both of us and was extremely flexible. I highly recommend using his company and will likely be using him in the future.

I can't say enough good things about Rachel. She met with me before the wedding and took time to get know us. She has a wonderful creative eye for settings and a knack for capturing the spirit of the event with her candid photography. Our staged group photos worked smoothly. I received my photos quickly within a few weeks of the wedding. Mostly, Rachel is a smart, intuitive, and sweet person. It was a pleasure to work with her.

David Guggenheim of Appeal Photography is 50% magician and 100% "Perfect Picture" Photographer. His understanding and use of shadow and lighting to provide mood and accent the lines and angles of the human form is extraordinary. His unassuming demeanor immediately puts you at ease and makes your project a 5 star experience you'll want to repeat! GM

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.
