L.B. Blanchard Photography did an excellent job. He took time to learn what type of feeling I wanted to project in my photo, and helped me pick the best image from the proofs. I am very pleased with my head shot, and it is perfect for my website and LinkedIn.

We met Rob and Danielle at their home for our initial consult. It was a bit of a drive from North Tampa, but well worth our time! We were blown away by the level of professionalism and the quality of their work. We were treated with champagne and snacks while we walked through samples of work and talked about different packages available. Rob Hurth Photography is affordable for a range of budgets and offers packages suitable for everyone. Before we left, we knew that Rob Hurth was a great fit for our wedding. Rob stayed in contact with us throughout the next few months of wedding planning. Whether it was just to say hello, ask how our progress with other vendors was coming, or to remind us about things that we had to complete. He is very prompt with email responses and was genuinely excited to work with us on our wedding. The day of the wedding, he was there, early, with Danielle and one other photographer. We had 3 total photographers and 8 hours of time with them. From the moment they stepped into my hotel room until the minute they left, they were snapping photos! All 3 were quick, efficient, and engaging. We had a wedding party of 18 people who love to play around and Rob's team was able to get them in place, looking fabulous so quickly! We actually saved some time to enjoy our cocktail hour because of how well they managed time. We moved from the hotel, to the church, then back to the hotel for the reception. No matter where we went, Rob and his team were there before us! They captured every amazing moment of the day! Our friends and family even commented on how wonderful the photographers were and that they're was always someone beside them snapping! Photographers everywhere! About 2 weeks after the wedding, we received our USB with all 1,008 pictures - and we love ALL of them! The ones with the second level of editing are truly gorgeous. It's going to be difficult to choose our top 30 for the book we'd like to get from Rob. Chris and I would recommend Rob Hurth Photography to any couple getting married or anyone else with photography needs. I will definitely use them again! Thank you, Rob, for making our wedding day last a lifetime!!

Looking for a photographer was one of the most important items in my wedding planning list. A good photographer and videographer were my top priority, as I wanted to make sure I memorialized my wedding day. I look in some many wedding expo, online, and asked some many of my friends. When I used thumbtack for the first time I decided to look for help here and see my options. I got a message from rob when I was looking for videographers and I was lucky that he also offered his services in photography.... When we met Rob we liked him immediately, we saw his work and it was awesome, we discussed our needs and out of all the people we met and asked for quotes he was the only one able to work with our needs for an excellent price. Our engagement pictures were beautiful and we enjoyed having the opportunity to get to know rob before the wedding. The day of the wedding him and his team were awesome. They captured every single detail of the day and didn't stop taking a picture throughout the wedding ceremony and reception. No words to describe the video, beautiful. John and I are so happy that we chose creativeFX studios for our wedding because we couldn't have picked a better team, very professional and they provided our pictures a week after the wedding, which was very nice. The video we could have gotten it quicker too.... but my John and I took too long to pick the song. (recommendation, when Rob give you the info for you to pick the music before the wedding day, do it right away.) I recommend rob and team for your wedding or any other event... I know that for any future celebration we will hire him again.

Scott was a pleasure to work with from the moment I first reached out to him to inquire about his background and experience. Although Scott is fairly new to wedding photography, you would never know it. He, along with his partner that day, Allen, did an amazing job shooting our wedding. They split up and went to the grooms location to capture the guys getting ready while Allen got great pictures of me and the rest of the bridal party. Scott then drove my groom to my location so we could squeeze in a quick first look (which I'm so glad we did)! Scott then took my groom to the church in his car while Allen road with us in the limo and got some great pics! I got so many compliments from family and friends about how great my photographers were and my pictures are proof of that! Not only is Scott and his team talented and passionate about what they do, they were an absolute pleasure to work with and we genuinely enjoyed having them there on our special day. I highly recommend slomback photography and plan to use them again in the future for the next milestone in our lives. Thank you again Scott & Allen

Ron told us about his service during the summer months. He explained the ease in which he could photograph our lumber yard from high above and take many angles of the complex. We use this photo info for advertising and for our insurance company for product coverage estimations. Ron was very thorough and very professional. The time spent on our part was minimal. The cost investment for this service was many times less than the previous photography company. They needed an aircraft and usually consumed 1/2 day our time. Ron was in and out in less than an hour. It really seems too good to be true. He opened my eyes to this new mode of photography. His service in invaluable in this new age of social media advertising. Thanks Ron, Brad Brownell Owner Brownell Lumber Co. www.brownelllumber.com

Thank you for capturing our friendship of 8 years in such spectacular photos. It's clear photography is her passion. If you want good quality photos, a positive experience, and memories to last a life time, Gloria Bloise Photography should be your choice!

Joanne was everything I could've asked for and more. I'm from out of state and needed someone local for my mother's milestone birthday party. The family photos were perfect, as well as the candid shots were fun & light -- both scenarios projected every bit of love and emotion for the day. She worked well with all of the business of a larger family gathering and even got all the kids to stay in line! I would highly recommend her for any of your special photography moments. Thank you, Joanne!

My brother proposed to his girlfriend and I was supposed to organize the photographer. Heather was fabulous! She answered all of my messages within a few hours, if not under an hour. She met with us the day before to go over the whole plan so we all knew what was going on. The day of she arrived with plenty of time before the proposal so we could get ready for the big question to be popped! She took AMAZING quality photos and sent them within a week. The photos are great quality, and she took a lot of photos so not a moment was missed. I highly recommend Heather Rose Photography for any event :)

Paula has more than just photography skills. She has a great quality of personalization that a photographer needs for all types of photo shoots. I got family photos taken with my beautiful wife and handsome son and she nailed the feeling, the vibe, the love and the atmosphere that we wanted when looking back on the photos. I saw other styles and types of events of families she has taken photos of on her studio walls and I felt like I knew exactly what they were going for in each photo. Also, gave me ideas for things I wouldn't have thought of to begin with. Wonderful experience.

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.
