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.

Does a photographer need to enter my home?

There are many situations in which a photographer does not need to enter your home. It’s not uncommon for people to prefer to have their pictures taken outdoors. If you're hiring a photographer, maintain safe distances, avoid being in the same room, sanitize all involved surfaces and conduct payment using digital platforms. You can discuss strategies as you complete your search for local photographers.

The ideal photographer for a wedding. Troy was very kind and helpful throughout our wedding planning. We loved that he asked a lot of detailed oriented questions. They were punctual for every event. Troy and Vivian are a joy to work with. It's more than photography with them. They ease your nerves and allow you to enjoy the moment. Highly recommend them to anyone looking for a wedding photographer or for any event.

Luis is great photography. I hired him for my wedding photography and “ TRASH THE DRESS” photography by the beach after the wedding. He is very responsible and professional, he did great job, and his charge is super reasonable too. I love the pics he took for us, he is highly recommended. If we need photography again, definitely would hire him again.

This photographer took the pictures for my wedding that was on a yacht. He is so professional and understanding. He took the initiative to show up and view the venue before the wedding and ask if I had any suggestions and so much more. Definitely would recommend him for all of your photo needs.

Although we went with someone else for our wedding photographer, Synkotography was really great with us at being responsive, informative, and helpful. Had we not just signed with another photographer we would have definitely chosen Synkotography!

Colette photographed our intimate wedding ceremony at our home in Fort Lauderdale. She arrived on time and was ready to begin shooting. Colette took a blend of candid shots as well as posed and artistic shots to capture the day. Her pictures are beautiful and not only are we very happy with our photographs; everyone who has seen our Gallery has told us "beautiful photos ...they captured your happiness on your special day!" Throughout the process - discussing the job, some time changes, posting our photos, etc., Collette has been responsive and helpful. It has been a pleasure to work with her. We treasure our wedding photos and look forward to working with Colette again - be it for an event or for a photo shoot. Thank you Colette! Sharyl & Bob

Colette from the Picture Producer is AWESOME!! I was on the hunt for a last minute photographer that could do a fun, Barbie doll style photo shoot for my girlfriend and her two friends on her 30th birthday in Miami! Colette was super fun and high energy and made the whole experience very memorable. She has the girls laughing and doing all sorts of fun poses. I'm planning to use her again next year as our wedding photographer! I highly recommend her if you're looking for a fun photographer that will capture more an just boring portraits!

Colette is an amazing photographer!! We absolutely loved the energy, professionalism and passion that she brought on our wedding day!!! She is exceptionally talented, and went above and beyond to capture beautiful photos of our unforgettable day! From our first telephone conversation and all the details she shared with me, I knew that I could not have made a better choice! She arrived at the location ahead of time, located areas that would allow us to take nice, sweet, beautiful pictures! She is very bubbly, easy to engage with and made us all feel comfortable! She surely took her time to guide us through the process and helped us get into poses in a very natural way. My husband and I chose to have our civil wedding ceremony at a park with our immediate family as guests and Colette was definitely that ball of energy who was determined to seize every single moment of emotion, laughter, & joyful tears! She quickly and carefully analyzed the scenery and environment to help her capture gorgeous photos of us and our family! She actually worked way past the time we had agreed on, but that is exactly what allowed us to have wonderful photos to help us cherish this day forever! The one very important advice I can give to someone wanting to book a photographer is to allow some flexibility in your schedule if you want beautiful photos! Trust me, I know it can be a very hectic day, but if you truly want those exceptional photos, do allow the extra time so you and your photographer can both be satisfied and truly content with the end result. I'm so happy that we chose Colette and will certainly give her a call for any future event/moment that we will want to have photographed professionally!

Working with Deborah was nothing short of amazing. As a wedding planning I try my best to find vendors that my clients would be pleased with and Deborah did just that. She made the bride and groom full comfortable during their photo shoot. Deborah arrived early to get as many pictures as possible. The digital images have been received and, I most say they are amazing. Thank you Deborah!!

My husband and I have been very pleased with our experience so far with Solo Mio Photography. (I only say so far because We haven’t gotten our pictures back just yet, although I seen some he showed us on his camera screen as we were shooting and they were amazing before edits so I just know they will be perfect!) Rob was amazing. My husband and I have never had pictures taken professionally but he kept things going and gave us ways to take pictures. I loved that he didn’t make us do still stiff poses. The whole photo shoot was very interactive. He was very attentive to the shots I wanted to get and took his time with getting the perfect one each and every time. Things were very hectic on my wedding day and I had to push things back, I think twice 🤦‍♀️. I also had to change the meeting place a few times on them and they were more than understanding. I highly recommend them to be used for any kind of photography needs but especially weddings!!! He was amazing if I haven’t said that enough. If I can figure it out I will come back to my review & post some pictures from our wedding day when I get them in the next few days.

Our experience with Solo Mio Photography was AMAZING! The quality of the pictures was phenomenal, exactly what we were looking for. Rob was so nice and very attentive. He even called before the wedding as a courtesy to see how we were doing and to reinsure that they would do their very best. Rob and his team were very professional and they delivered the pictures very quickly. We knew we could trust them and they definitely delivered. They were very fun to work with and make you feel at ease, even when you're freaking out! We HIGHLY recommend them.
