Kathleen is wonderful! From my first contact with her she was funny, reassuring and so affordable! I never had any worry that she would do a fantastic job capturing our memories. In a day full of disasters, she was so calming, I was able to relax and enjoy myself. She was unobtrusive and so sweet! My images are beautiful. I cannot wait to have the opportunity to use her services again! I highly recommend Kathleen Finnerty Photography.

I highly recommend Rob Hurth Photography! We absolutely love our photos from our wedding. Rob & Danielle were wonderful the day of our wedding, working around all of the chaos and busy-ness of wedding prep, yet the photos look flawless & amazing! They captured all of the important and wonderful moments of our wedding. They were easy-going, fun, professional and personable. The wedding video was a perfect and a special treat! Incredibly reasonably priced as well! Thankfully these photos will last a lifetime!!

Looking for a photographer was one of the most important items in my wedding planning list. A good photographer and videographer were my top priority, as I wanted to make sure I memorialized my wedding day. I look in some many wedding expo, online, and asked some many of my friends. When I used thumbtack for the first time I decided to look for help here and see my options. I got a message from rob when I was looking for videographers and I was lucky that he also offered his services in photography.... When we met Rob we liked him immediately, we saw his work and it was awesome, we discussed our needs and out of all the people we met and asked for quotes he was the only one able to work with our needs for an excellent price. Our engagement pictures were beautiful and we enjoyed having the opportunity to get to know rob before the wedding. The day of the wedding him and his team were awesome. They captured every single detail of the day and didn't stop taking a picture throughout the wedding ceremony and reception. No words to describe the video, beautiful. John and I are so happy that we chose creativeFX studios for our wedding because we couldn't have picked a better team, very professional and they provided our pictures a week after the wedding, which was very nice. The video we could have gotten it quicker too.... but my John and I took too long to pick the song. (recommendation, when Rob give you the info for you to pick the music before the wedding day, do it right away.) I recommend rob and team for your wedding or any other event... I know that for any future celebration we will hire him again.

Scott was a pleasure to work with from the moment I first reached out to him to inquire about his background and experience. Although Scott is fairly new to wedding photography, you would never know it. He, along with his partner that day, Allen, did an amazing job shooting our wedding. They split up and went to the grooms location to capture the guys getting ready while Allen got great pictures of me and the rest of the bridal party. Scott then drove my groom to my location so we could squeeze in a quick first look (which I'm so glad we did)! Scott then took my groom to the church in his car while Allen road with us in the limo and got some great pics! I got so many compliments from family and friends about how great my photographers were and my pictures are proof of that! Not only is Scott and his team talented and passionate about what they do, they were an absolute pleasure to work with and we genuinely enjoyed having them there on our special day. I highly recommend slomback photography and plan to use them again in the future for the next milestone in our lives. Thank you again Scott & Allen

We had a family photography session with 15 people, including 7 children from one to eight years old. It went very well, considering the attention spans of the kids! She brought games, toys, bubbles, & did a wonderful job creating both formal and candid opportunities (& keeping the others' occupied while taking smaller group pics.

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 :)

Paula has more than just photography skills. She has a great quality of personalization that a photographer needs for all types of photo shoots. I got family photos taken with my beautiful wife and handsome son and she nailed the feeling, the vibe, the love and the atmosphere that we wanted when looking back on the photos. I saw other styles and types of events of families she has taken photos of on her studio walls and I felt like I knew exactly what they were going for in each photo. Also, gave me ideas for things I wouldn't have thought of to begin with. Wonderful experience.

Zack took the photos for my prom, and I was thrilled to see the results! He was very professional, patient, and a blast to work with. He was always smiling and joking and I had a genuinely good time! He was timely with preparing the photos, and was very creative with his shots. I recommend Zack McNally to anyone who asks for an amazing photographer! I can't wait to have him take photos for me in the future!

    I am in absolute awe over my photos! Kayla was able to find such gorgeous scenery for my family's pictures! She is professional, great with my son (which is a plus!) And VERY passionate about photography! She got me a sneak peak that very night and within 3 days I had a gallery to view. I can't wait until our next session! I can't express how much I appreciate her capturing our photos! I highly recommend her!!!

    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.
