We hired Stephanie for a four-day corporate event and wow, we couldn't have asked for a better photographer! She was very professional, fun to work with and made those she photographed feel at ease. We threw her a few curve balls throughout the event (asked her to work an hour later than originally requested) but she accepted without hesitation. We highly recommend Stephanie and can't wait to work with her again!

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!!

First of all, Robert LOVES what he does... this shows in the quality of his work and in his communication with us. Our photo session after the wedding ceremony was quick and focused so we didn't waste time away from the reception. We got our photo booth photos and regular photos much faster than expected... and we are BLOWN AWAY!!! Our photos are artistic and beautifully shot . We could not have asked for more. I have been in the event business and wedding business and have not seen many more talented photographers than Robert. Set up a meeting and give him a shot - I would rehire in a heart beat. Also- the Photo Booth was AMAZING! Our guests are STILL talking about it weeks after the wedding, and looking through everyones photos is a blast. We can't say THANK YOU to Robert and his team enough.

After seeing the stunning photos Scott took during a joint graduation & engagement photo session, we knew we had to hire him for our wedding! We have had several other interactions with photographers (including a prior engagement session), and Scott has consistently been the most flexible, prompt and professional. In addition, the quality of photos he provides is simply amazing! Our wedding pictures turned out simply beautiful and we couldn't be happier. Highly recommend!

Working with Earl was really great! He was so professional and even came prepared with sketches of shot poses. I have worked with a lot of photographers and have never seen that (I was truly impressed!). He was a perfectionist and he wanted to make sure that we had several good shots to choose from. We ran into a little unexpected rain, but Earl was really flexible, again just wanting to make sure that we had the shots that we wanted. I would work with him again!

Peter and his wife Christy did a fantastic job as photographers for my wedding. They arrived and departed at the exact times we'd agreed upon, and they had wonderful suggestions for photos that would show off the venue we'd selected. I would recommend Peter and Christy to anyone looking for professional photography!

With two moving children ages 1 and 2-1/2, one not cooperative at all, Allan did a great job capturing our family of nine on the beach. He was great communicating via email, phone and text during the bid, booking and day of the session. He was also vey prompt providing our finished photos at a very reasonable price. Highly recommended photographer!

I would give Colleen 10 stars if this website didn't limit me to 5! I first got in touch with Colleen via Thumbtack when I was looking for a photographer to capture my engagement proposal in Venice, FL. My fiance and I live in West Virginia and were planning a vacation in Venice for our 3-year anniversary. I was planning a surprise proposal on the beach, but since I had never been to Venice before, I was a bit worried about how it would all unfold. Colleen contacted me promptly via thumbtack after I submitted my information. We spoke over the phone and she was incredibly willing to help make sure that my proposal was flawless! Because I could not visit the area to plan it out, she personally drove over an hour to the spot where I wanted to propose to scout everything out. I can't tell you how much I appreciated this personal touch -- other photographers I contacted did not offer this level of customer service. I couldn't have pulled off the perfect proposal without her help! On the evening of the proposal, Colleen was camped out discretely on the beach with plenty of time to spare. She helped plan the perfect setup to capture the moment when I proposed! We did an engagement photo shoot directly after the proposal as the sun was setting on the beach. To be honest, I typically hate being photographed for any length of time, but Colleen made everything totally fun, relaxed, and enjoyable! I couldn't have asked for a more perfect proposal and photo shoot. Colleen immediately went to work editing photos, and we had several photos available that evening to share with friends and family. All the other photos were available the next day. Absolutely loved her work! All in all, the greatest thing about this experience was the personal touch Colleen offered. She was genuinely excited to be a part of this moment, and it showed in both her work and her willingness to help me plan out the perfect proposal. For anyone out there who has tried to plan a proposal in an unknown location, it can be pretty stressful. Colleen helped minimize this stress and left us with some amazing photos in the process! I've gotten countless compliments on the photos and will forever be happy that we have such beautiful documentation of our engagement.

Very friendly, professional individual who took our thoughts, wants, and desires and made them work with the setting we had. Quick turn around with getting final product to us. Even drove completely out of his way to come and work with us. Would recommend to anyone wanting a fun experience with their hired photographer. 10/10!

Jessica is an extremely talented and fully committed photographer. Upon our first meeting, she made me feel at ease and fully confident in her approach to capturing our special day. She was prompt, professional, courteous and kept our best interests at heart throughout the entire process. She provided insight as an expert in her field, but also as someone who truly cared about making our wedding everything it could possibly be. I would recommend her without hesitation.

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 :)

She is amazing she made my wife feel like a beautiful queen. On a day that is full of stress she took away the stress instead of adding to it like some photographers. As I go through the pictures you can see the love and joy that brought my wife and I to that beautiful day.

I hired Rev Pete through Thumbtack, of the 3 responses I received, Rev Pete was the most reasonable priced for what my husband and I were looking for. We got married May of 2014 with a small ceremony and were having a larger wedding this year and we needed a speaker to perform our ceremony. Rev Pete personally drove from South of St.Petersburg to Kissimmee to meet with me before we even signed a contract. He helped me and my husband in the process of writing our own vows. And he was never further than an email away whenever I had any concerns regarding our big day. Of all the vendors I worked with for our wedding I can honestly say that Rev Pete was the most attentive to our needs. We did not feel like just another client. Other vendors only signed contracts and then showed up the day of the wedding. But not Rev Pete! We were very happy with our wedding and with the services provided to us by Rev Pete. He worked with us to create a personalized ceremony that embodied both my husband and I perfectly. He even went the extra mile when we stayed for our sunset photos on the beach and assisted our photographer and videographer when needed. We have nothing but great things to say about Rev Pete! :)

Paula has a wonderful way of making you feel welcome and comfortable when you arrive at her studio. She took extra time with me in the studio and also took me for a little ride on her golf cart to a perfect spot on her land for outdoor shots. She even hauled a chair and a bench out there into the field. Who does that nowadays? She has also gone the extra mile by helping me after the shoot. I had a lot of questions and sent her multiple emails. She answered almost immediately. She is patient, and it is obvious from her portfolio that she cares about each client's individual needs. Her props and creative vibe remind me of country meets Victoria Magazine, one of my favorites. It was worth the drive from Sarasota to work with Paula. She is more than a photographer. She is an artist.

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.
