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.

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.

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.

The Mango Portrait team were fantastic. They were professional, accommodating, caring and really fun to work with on our wedding day. They truly love what they do. They included getting ready for the wedding photos as well. They really captured the essence of our wedding in their photos. They also filmed our wedding, can't wait to see the video!! Thank you Taffy and Team!!

We love the photos Juan Carlos took of our family at my parents 50th Wedding Anniversary party. He was in constant contact with us prior to the event and had a very quick turn around for providing proofs of the photos. We would definitely use him again and would recommend him to photograph any event, large or small!

D&D Photos was extraordinary! David and his wife are the perfect duo. Their services was nothing short of amazing. I'm very thankful for their services. David was very responsive. If I needed anything, he took care of it. I couldn't have hired a better photographer. Selecting D&D Photos for our wedding was one of our best decisions. Thank you again.

Our experience with this photographer has been horrible. We had to cancel our wedding due to COVID-19 and this photographer has refused to work with us. Once we were told our deposit was non-refundable we asked for a smaller photo session, but no response. They required a 50% deposit so I'm sure you can assume we lost a pretty penny on this photographer, We were willing to work with them, but they didn't even give us the decency of a call back. Highly disappointed and annoyed. Would give zeros if I could.

April was incredible – very professional, easy to work with, and fun! She helped come up with some great photo ideas organically that we hadn’t thought of before the event, and some of those turned out to be our favorites of the night. She had an eye to find the best shots in the right spaces, including many candid photos, and she also did a great job of creating space for the photography (she kindly and professionally helped to move people in or out of the way for pictures). She became a key part of our day in a special way, and gave us some great photos to forever be a part of our wedding day memories! We are so thankful we chose April for our special event, and we highly recommend her for any photography needs.

Working with Sebastian was a wonderful experience, because of his professionalism and personality. He made us feel like we were the only clients he was working with; despite his hectic and busy schedule, he always made time to call and make sure we were comfortable the days leading up to our wedding. I’m not one to write reviews, but I had to for Sebastien, because I believe many should use his services and experience what we did while working with him. From the moment we decided to even inquire about his services, he was attentive and dedicated to giving life to our memories. The photos were beautiful and captured the essence of our day. Not to mention, we received all of our photos AND a complimentary video only days after our wedding. We cannot recommend Sebastien enough; hands down, best photographer we have worked with!

Working with Veronika was truly an amazing experience. She really went out of her way to make our wedding photo shoot a great experience. The day of our wedding we had a delay with the time and we’re not able to take pictures of just ourselves and she rescheduled a day to make sure the lighting was perfect and it really was perfect, she was super patient and very kind. She is very talented when it comes to capture your best angles, the best moment and she’s relentless about get the best shoot! Booking her was one of the best choices we made in our wedding planning. Thank you again for everything you did for us. We are definitely book you when it comes to our pregnancy pictures.

We hired Tej for our wedding photographs in North Miami Beach. We were a group of 9 people and arrived very late for our scheduled session, but Tej reacted with nothing but patience and understanding. We had discussed our ideas for the shoot prior to meeting, and she took great time and care to deliver exactly what we had asked for. She scouted the venue and had all the perfect shots planned out before we had even arrived. She also made us feel so happy and comfortable throughout the experience, and we ended up having a lot of fun! We received the final album a few days later and were really impressed. The photos were beautifully edited and perfectly captured all the love and happiness that was felt on that day. We would recommend Tej to anybody, especially those planning a wedding or engagement shoot!

We had Roxana as our wedding photographer and couldn’t be happier with the choice. It was just for a few hours but she always was there at the right spot for the shots. Made us feel comfortable during the entire time she was with us and was great with the family and friends pictures too! We still haven’t seen the final results but we’re sure it’ll be very nice! If you come across her profile and haven’t decided yet, we totally recommend her!

Dominique and her team were absolutely fabulous! The moment I reached out to her she was very responsive and helpful and made choosing photography and videography for my wedding an absolute breeze. On the actual day of our wedding she showed up early, had amazing positive energy the entire time even until the end and made both of us feel very comfortable. She was precise and helpful with posing and was great at directing me and my fiance to get the best shots. Not only did she make sure we got every shot on our list, throughout the evening, her team was there getting tons of candid shots of our guests and the atmosphere. I I would highly recommend DLC Innovation for anyone getting married. I know the process of finding a quality photographer and videographer is stressful but I know I made the right decision! Thank you so much for capturing our big day and making us feel special! I would totally hire her again and again!

We hired Alejandro for my parents 50th wedding anniversary party. We can tell you that you will not be disappointed with Alejandro's work or professionalism. Alejandro was punctual and very personable as a photographer. He took amazing pictures of the event and even took pictures of details that my husband and I forgot to mention. He delivered the pictures, as promised, the next day via email. We will definitely use Alejandro in the future and you will be extremely happy with your pictures when you hire him.He was truly a great find !!!

Igor has been very kind and with the biggest heart in the world. When I discussed with him what I want for my wedding day and that I was getting married after 10 years of relationship and 2 kids he was kind enought to give me from his time an engagement photoshoot for free. Let me tell you! This guy was the most fun and natural photographer I ever meet in my life. We have to posponed our big day do to the Cov-19. But I cant wait for November. People call Igor you wont regret, professional, fun, artist and a very nice guy with a lot to offee. His job it is amazing.
