Tiara provided a great trial run session, she thoroughly mapped out her vision for my hair and makeup and helped me establish a timeline of when all my bridesmaids and I would receive our services. While the trial run was an excellent experience - the reason Tiara was booked - Tiara outdid herself during the actual event. First of all she was right on time and ready with her glam squad. Tiara worked rapidly and even altered and adjusted hair and makeup for several of my ladies, due to our very own indecisiveness. My ladies, mom and I were ravishing. The makeup was classic, subtle yet bold enough to make a statement. Lastly, and most meaningful to me, Tiara threw in extras free of charge all for the sake of making sure we receive the look we envisioned. The little extra knickknacks set everything over the top. My wedding event was beyond perfect and all thanks to professionals such as Tiara!

After searching Thumbtack for a photographer, we hired Stephanie to shoot our Spring Symposium in Orlando on May 15 and 16, based on the images posted on her website. The results of her work are outstanding and her professionalism was evident throughout the shoot. We also liked Stephanie personally, which made it a pleasure to work with her. I highly recommend Stephanie Hayes for event photography. She rocks!

The entire experience of working with Robert was EXCELLENT. We needed to arrange for a photographer for our wedding in Florida from a distance -- we live in Michigan. He listened to our needs and answered all our questions. Robert's services were exactly as promised and he delivered beautiful and innovative pictures. He was fun to work with and we so enjoyed having him as part of our wedding party. We would highly recommend hiring Robert Hedges as the photographer for any event.

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!

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!

Allan was hired to record a family event. He quietly slipped through the attendees and recorded very special candid images of the event. Excellent composition and imagery. However, I had to knock of one star for showing up in shorts - partly my fault; should have informed him; just concluded that he would anticipate or ask. Otherwise great customer service, great product delivery and great price.

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.

Anyone who has dogs knows how hard it is to get them to cooperate! We decided we wanted our two golden retrievers to be part of our holiday card photos. What a chaotic mess the dogs were at first! Did that stop us from having an incredible experience? Nope! Professional photographer, very friendly, understanding, and talented! Y’all would be crazy not to hire Limboden Photography!

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.

Paula was so wonderful to work with! She was prompt in answering and offered different packages to suit our needs. She was willing to travel to our location. She arrived early to scope out the perfect location. She was able to control our rowdy group and had wonderful ideas for poses. We couldn’t have asked for a better photographer to work with during our vacation! Thank you, Paula!

I have worked with Mr. Bozarth multiple times as one of his models, and also receiving advice on how to better my own personal photography. When it comes to lighting, there may be no one better. His skill set really allows the models to be creative while also creating the best possible images imaginable. He is also versatile in genres which make this photographer a cut above the rest. He is artistical, tasteful, and mindfully engaged in every shot which is far more than I can ever say about your run of the mill photographers.

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.
