I found Doug on Thumbtack and was pleased to have him photograph my wedding this past October. First, I was so pleased to meet him before hand and see more of his work so I knew what to expect. But more than that, I realized that Doug is an exciting, interesting, and cheerful person which made the experience even better. He has an artistic eye and really made some beautiful memories that made me excited to have him shoot my big day! During the day, Doug captured fantastic moments and was flexible when we wanted him to get a specific person or time. He was over all energetic and cheerful! I had a few friends that are amateur photographers also take pictures for us and Doug took the time to answer some of their photography questions and giving them tips - going above and beyond his call... Finally, my pictures came out beautiful and in a timely manner. I can't thank him enough for capturing our day and producing this precious keepsake!

A wonderful experience! K. Michael was a pleasure to work with on our wedding day. Reliable & professional, we received confirmation text messages in the days leading up to the event. His calm, friendly demeanor put us at ease. He asked what shots we wanted & made excellent recommendations for poses and backgrounds. We really appreciated how much candid coverage he got of the ceremony while still remaining unobtrusive. Basically everything you want your wedding photographer to be! We highly recommend Monumental Arts.

Nik proposed in 3/17 & we didn't want to wait so once we locked in the venue, we began looking for a photographer. Our wedding was considered it an elopement as it was a simple service with 11 in attendance, myself & my groom included, and it was to be roughly 3 hours of shoot time. We wanted to have a natural feel to the photos & be rich in color with no details missed. During the search, I wanted to see portfolios of weddings where the photographer had shot in dimly lit venues. Although we didn't do a traditional reception, we did have all of our guests join us for a dinner where we did a toast & cut cake. We wanted to see work that demonstrated the photographer's ability to photograph without the use of bright lights that create shadows or completely black out the room to get one (or a few) subject(s). Joshua was very accommodating when it came down to deciding between three local artists & I'd asked to view a full wedding since in reality, the online portfolios only showcase their best work. He was incredibly patient with us as we took a few weeks to really nit-pick the photographer's work & make a decision. Everything that we'd asked for he provided. Fast forward to June 10, 2017 - the wedding. Upon arrival, he helped us all get into place & even communicate between the groom & I. He was incredibly patient. Honestly, I barely noticed him once everything got rolling. He got all the shots we wanted & then some! The photos of my husband's expression when I made my way towards him will be cherished forever. Anything in particular we wanted, he did. In the end, he ran a few photos by us to see if they were to our satisfaction. We made a few suggestions regarding saturation & a small blemish that needed editing & when the gallery went up, I couldn't stop looking for days. We happily recommend Joshua Fernandez Photography. The photos selected are two of our favorites from the day <3

What an amazing artist! Was very nervous about my and my fiancees first ever photo shoot. Paul was so laid back and so professional . He really made it a comfy atmosphere and just very natural. He really took his time and made sure we had the best session we could. He made my super shy fiancee very comfortable. The pictures were edited and given to us in a very timely fashion. Not only was our engagement photos amazing and the session a huge success but we have also decided that even though we live in NJ he will be our wedding photographer he is worth every sent and with that being said i highly recommend Paul for your photo needs you cant go wrong. Thank you so much Paul

Working with Jeff has been a great experience. He offered to take photos for my wedding. His preference is for small to medium weddings - so ours was right in his wheelhouse. Working with a small budget and very short notice he managed to provide professional photographs that have exceeded my expectations. He managed to get many pictures without being intrusive. And many of them are so amazing because they are so candid and unexpected. These are some of my favorites ones. I highly recommend Jeff to anyone who is looking for a reasonably priced photographer for their wedding or special event.

Elmo, you truly are an artist. My wife and I are so impressed by the results of our wedding photos and could not be happier. Elmo was so professional, kind, and talented throughout the entire day. He went above and beyond our expectations as a photographer. He was able to capture a wide range of moments on our wedding day. You can really feel his passion pour out as he works and really made the experience exceptional for us. Everyone family and friends were happy with his cheerful attitude. Would love to have him back for future events and we are so thankful to have had him capture all our wedding memories. Wish I could give more stars.

What a talented photographer and even amazing human being. I hired Ashshanae as my wedding photographer, she was so professional through out the whole process. She went above and beyond to make sure every thing was perfect. She listened to all of my requests and made sure everything was as I wanted it to be. My contract with Ashshanae only included pictures however out of courtesy she even video recorded the ceremony. She was very professional, punctual and responsive. Her work is amazing and I am so glad I choose Ashshanae as our wedding photographer. Thank you Ashshanae!!!

Pictures were lovely. Great professional job by a friendly guy with a great attitude. I picked Two Jakes after viewing the work of several event photographers. He got them to us in no time, so we could use them in our media posts and marketing. I am so glad I did. I would use Two Jakes again. They were great.

Rachel is a real pro - if you are looking for beautiful, real, crisp, clear portraits, engagement and wedding photos, family photos - anything - look no further. Rachel instantly made me feel at ease in front of the camera and knew exactly how to guide my fiance and I to capture authentic and natural photos. She is brilliant at using natural light, too. We could not be happier!

Justin and I started a conversation a little over a week ago. I was looking for a photographer who would be able to take us some couples photos for the holiday season. From the very start, Justin was punctual and he continued to be punctual through to the delivery of the photos. Often times when people hire photographers, people complain that photographers lose momentum once they’ve been offered the gig or once they’ve received payment. This is absolutely not the case with Justin. Justin’s punctuality definitely has been a plus point all the way. I also appreciated that Justin works with clients across varying price points. In addition, I must say Justin’s offer was definitely reasonable given that we’re situated in the DMV. Interacting with Justin, one of the first things I let him know was that I just wanted a quick photo shoot that would be a leg up from our usual selfies. Justin understood exactly what I was expecting out of our photo shoot. Justin and I worked out the details over text, and the photo shoot was quick and effortless. Though I didn’t end up calling him myself, I did pass on Justin’s phone number to a few colleagues of mine - he had such a great offer that I had to share with others! On that note, if you need to hop on the phone to talk details, just ask for his phone number. I am absolutely all about Pinterest and all things Pinterest related. I had ideas of poses but when we met up, my mind sort of went blank (I blame the cold!) and Justin had great ideas which resulted in some beautiful photos of the two of us. I also have to praise Justin’s understanding of space, lighting, and photography concept. Justin took a handful of posed and candid photos, which we both appreciated. Not only is Justin talented, but he is easygoing too. And that’s definitely a plus point when hiring a photographer. If you can’t be yourself around your photographer or if the photographer can’t get you to feel relaxed and at east, then you might as well throw in the towel because you won’t get quality photos. Thank you, Justin, we love love love our photos!! PS: Hire Justin. If my photos are any testament, I’m sure you too will be more than satisfied with yours!

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.
