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.

How many photos should you get from a wedding photographer?

A professional wedding photographer will usually supply their clients with several hundred photos (200, 300, 400 or 800 and more). Some might even provide more than 1,000 photos. It ultimately depends on the photographer.

Wedding photographers will usually take several thousand photos but cut them down to the keepers. They also have to edit these photos. Typically, they will provide them to the clients on a digital hard drive, as an online download or even in a photo album with beautiful decorations.

What pictures should be taken at a wedding?

On your wedding day, your photographer should take pictures of the couple getting ready for the wedding, as well as a fun personality picture before activities begin. They should also photograph showstoppers like the bouquet, invitations, shoes, reception space, cake, centerpieces, rings and the veil. A generational photo with parents or grandparents is also special. There should also be photos of the bride and groom alone, the ceremony, the confetti-filled exit, and hair and makeup.

How long do wedding photographers stay?

A wedding photographer usually expects to work a full day. This gives them time to photograph the venue, cake, rings, shoes, centerpieces, invitations and other aspects of the wedding before the guests arrive. It also allows them time to get photos of the bride and groom alone, as well as the hair and makeup process and fun personality pictures. Then, they will work through all the parts of the wedding.

When should you take wedding photos?

Couples can take wedding photos before their actual ceremony, during cocktail hour (before the reception), during the wedding reception or even after their wedding. The least stressful time to do it is often before the ceremony when hair and makeup generally look their best, temperatures are usually lower because it’s earlier in the day and the couple won’t have to think or worry about it for the rest of the day.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a photographer during the COVID-19 pandemic?

The best way to set up an appointment or a consultation with a photographer near you during the COVID-19 pandemic is by conducting an online search. Start by scheduling a call with the photographer. If possible, it may be better to use a video call service so that the photographer can get an idea of the site location. Take this opportunity to discuss safety measures you can take during this time, as well as whether it’s safe to complete the project now or simply postpone it.

How can I find out if a photographer is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

Consult your city or state’s government websites, which typically have information on which services are deemed essential during the pandemic. 

For national information, visit CISA’s page on Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19. Here, you can find 16 different types of essential infrastructure sectors that can continue operating unimpeded during the pandemic. But some, not all, jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure.

Do photographers offer remote or virtual services?

Photography happens in person, but photographers may be able to offer other remote services safely during the COVID-19 pandemic. For example, they may be able to offer editing and other post-processing services. 

If you see that a photographer is offering remote services in their profile, contact them and ask what those services include.

Can I use digital payments to pay for wedding and event photography services?

As digital forms of payment and money transfer are becoming more popular, wedding and event photographers are likely to use digital services. These include PayPal, Zelle, Google Pay, Venmo, Square Cash and more. As you search online for local wedding and event photographers, ask them if they accept digital payments and, if so, which ones you can use. And make sure to have a strategy in place for safe social distancing.

Nicholaus was a pleasure to work with! He was one of the first photographers we seeked for our last minute wedding on the beach. He was very professional, had good energy and helped to make our special day a success by capturing some beautiful moments of my wedding. I highly recommend him. We would definitely work with him again!

We hired Rick for our wedding next year. I asked him about taking engagement pictures. Without hesitation he accommodated the request. He gave us the location, made us feel comfortable and we had a great photo shoot. I would recommend Rick to all my friends who are looking for a great photographer

Aside from his exceptional photos that he took, he has a very kind and calm demeanor which allowed everyone to feel very comfortable during my baby shower. I’m sorry for writing this review so late, but better late then never 🙆🏻

This was my very first time using this app, so I was a bit skeptical. I wanted to do some pictures of me and my husband on our wedding day, nothing major. I was linked to five different photographers when I submitted the job. Something stood out about Alexa, her work was awesome. And every request I had she answered each and everyone which made me feel comfortable...Needless to say after getting my photos back in about a weeks time, I'm super happy photos were everything I expected. Thanks soooooooo much Alexa for making my day special.

From the beginning, we liked Rob's portfolio for its style. He didn't have a lot of wedding photos but we decided to give him a chance as we could see he had a good "eye." We're so happy we did... He did a great job and was so easy to work with -- responsive and prompt with a fun personality! Thank you, Rob!

Yohan, was simply amazing!!! Can't say good enough things about her. I found her through thumbtack compared to other wedding websites. I immediately went and took a look at her website and contacted her. She replied back and gave me her several wedding plans and payment options. We met with her and her personality was wonderful! You can tell she loves her job and it shows through all her pictures. The day of the wedding she arrived on time and went straight to work. She brought a family member as an assistant named Aaron and he was wonderful to work with. She did some AMAZING shots which we got a sneak peek off, the day after the wedding. She was literally on the floor taking pictures during the reception from people dancing. She was wonderful to work with and my husband and I would definitely recommend her to anyone and everyone. She started about a couple of years ago in the business but I can see her being a top South-Florida photographer soon! We loved her work!! Can't wait to see the rest of the pictures! Thank you so much for making this day special Yohan!
