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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Reviews for Orlando wedding photographers

Sebastian wasn't able to attend our wedding due to a hurricane in our city so he suggested another photographer that he trusted. Unfortunately, that photographer doesn't have many skills for a wedding and we aren't satisfied with his work. We appreciate Sebastian's customer service and for trying his best to solve the many issues we had with our wedding photos.

I hired Kimberly & Richard for my wedding and engagement shoot. The engagement session was more than I could of imagined. They knew the best poses and kept us comfortable at the same time. They are also such down to earth people. I cannot wait until they photograph us on our wedding day. I would definitely recommend them for any type of photography as they do it all :)

Kimberly and Richard were amazing. We planned our photo shoot and wedding video long distance and everything was picture perfect. They did everything they could to make our day special even Kimberly helping me get buttoned into my wedding gown. They were both so friendly, fun and helpful to capture our special wedding moments. Highly recommend.

Rachel is an amazing person and a professional photographer. She helped us in a pinch and accepted the job less than 2 week prior the wedding ceremony. We absolutely loved the photos she took and will cherish them forever! We highly recommend her for any of your events!!

If you need a wedding photography and are in the greater Orlando area you need to choose Ariel and Bige, so first of all, look no further. I was going to wait until the wedding to do this review, but the mini engagement session they gave us was so out of this world that I could not wait. First, their responsiveness was great. They contacted me and reached out to me with prompt responses, we were able to set up dates to meet and do a “small” engagement session (which To us was like a gift!). Second, They are very professional and organized. They want to make sure all of your needs are met on your wedding day and they set certain guidelines so that everyone is on the same page. Third, please heir price is basically a gift! When I started my search I wanted to work with someone that was staring up because I had a tight budget and for the longest I was going to compromise on having a photographer. I not only got one, but TWO amazing photographers. I’m soooo happy with their chemistry, the four of us clicked and we had so much fun. I’m convinced that we chose them for an amazing, purposeful reason! The end result of Only a small part of their work is what I added to this review. WE LOVED IT. They captured me and James like never before. James is an introvert, and he was comfortable and at ease. They envisioned everything I had in mind and more. We cannot wait until the wedding, and to be able to have this memories last forever. Thank you First & Port photography, you guys are out of this world!

Adrian was phenomenal. Couldn't have asked for a better photographer. He was engaging with all of our guests, paid close attention to detail and took amazing pictures. Wedding was yesterday and the pictures were ready this morning. They were beautiful. My husband and I were speechless. Can't thank him enough for making our day special. Book him now!!!

We could not have selected a better photographer for our micro wedding. Inga is very professional and communicative from start to finish. She was able to get all of our awkward selves feeling comfortable in front of the camera. She has a very personable personality and she made it an effortless experience for us when we were taking our family photos. During the couple photo session, she was very understanding and her and her assistant did everything to accommodate for the lack of skills I had in moving around in my heels. They also provided good suggestions for poses, which were most appreciative for a non-natural model such as myself. Inga did an amazing job capturing the day and its many little moments. She pays attention to angles, lightning and other important details so the pictures look perfect. She delivered our photos in a very timely manner and we were all stunned with the quality of her work. Her photos made everyone look so modelesque and worthy to be in the pages of a glossy magazine. Thank you again for all of your dedication and hard work Inga! We highly recommend her as a photographer for your special day/events!

I wanted a photographer for my parent's 60th wedding anniversary/family reunion. We were celebrating throughout the week so didn't have a party S such. Lea was great in scoping out the resort we were staying at and found a lovely spot to serve as background. She worked with my folks. My niece and her kids. Then my brother and his kids. The setups were very creative and fun. Us. We has individual shots if each one. We were scheduled for a Monday session. But one of our party was military and had to leave late Sunday. Lea rescheduled things so we could include our Army man in the group photos. We are very. Very pleased. The only things my folks really wanted was to visit and play with everyone and get photos. Lea made their wishes come true.

I hired Yannick to photograph my small, intimate backyard wedding and he and his girlfriend delivered WAY beyond what we paid for! They really took care of us both and catered to everything we asked for, even with a complicated family on my side and a schedule that wasn’t at all followed like we planned. The quality of the work was amazing and our pictures are now our favorite part of the wedding. All in all, can not rave enough about the two of them and am so glad we chose Yannick. He was so sweet and accommodating and funny and made us feel at home in front of the camera. Attached are some of the shoes he took of our big day ❤️
