I hired Kathleen to take photos of my sister's heart and soul, Daisy, in her last few days with us. I wanted to give my sister something she could treasure for years after Daisy is gone. This is what my sister had to say of her experience with Kathy: "I wanted photos that captured the love and bond that I have with my Daisy Mae, and Kathleen did just that. She was professional, courteous, and caring. She felt my pain and understood how important this photo shoot was to me. I love every single photo she took. She asked what we wanted, and then took some candid shots. She took photos of me and my other dogs Rosie, and Sophie as well. She not only took pictures of us, but loved on the girls, and made all of us feel comfortable, like she was part of the family too. I would recommend her to anyone. Her passion and huge heart comes through when she is capturing photographs, and she captured exactly what I was looking for. Thank you Kathy for your passion, professionalism, compassion, and giving me and my fur-babies pictures that will last forever. I can't thank you enough for these photos." Kathy is an amazing person and photographer. I can't wait for Kathy to take pictures of my son for his first birthday. Kathy will be our family's photographer for years to come!

Joe was the absolute best! We had some weather conditions working against us but he always remained calm and even listen to me cry over the phone. Even with just him photographing the wedding, he captured every moment flawlessly. He answered every request I had when it came to example photos that I had shown him prior to the big day. He was on time, professional, and blended into the crowd to get some fabulous candid shots. He was recommended to me by a friend and I am so happy i went with him. It was also amazing that he wasn’t ridiculously expensive like all the other wedding photographers. He is one of a kind!

Out of 5 referred wedding photographers I selected Rob based his amazing images and his price was under my bride's budget. We contracted with Rob because of the relationship we built immediately. Rob was responsive, open to suggestions, easy to work with, offered suggestions and kept us in the know. He is kind, creative, professional and easy to work with. I want him to be my photographer for every event I coordinate. Thank you Rob. The teaser images you sent blew us away!!! My bride & groom will have these gorgeous images to remind them of 10/15/16 forever.

We hired Robert and his team for our wedding back in April. We had them do both the photography and videography. Team did a great job of arriving on time and worked for 8 hours until the latter part of the reception. Had two photographers and a videographer. Great wedding shots and felt like we had just enough for what we wanted given we did not want to spend the entire wedding taking photos. Was very good about setting up the photo to set the shot and directing us on where to stand and look. I think overall we ended up with about 300 final photos which was plenty because no one wants to sort through 800 photos. Video was great quality and all in 4K. Videographer had some fancy stabilization. We received a few minute highlight video and then all the raw footage. Overall would highly recommend, especially for the value.

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!

With two moving children ages 1 and 2-1/2, one not cooperative at all, Allan did a great job capturing our family of nine on the beach. He was great communicating via email, phone and text during the bid, booking and day of the session. He was also vey prompt providing our finished photos at a very reasonable price. Highly recommended photographer!

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.

Jessica is an extremely talented and fully committed photographer. Upon our first meeting, she made me feel at ease and fully confident in her approach to capturing our special day. She was prompt, professional, courteous and kept our best interests at heart throughout the entire process. She provided insight as an expert in her field, but also as someone who truly cared about making our wedding everything it could possibly be. I would recommend her without hesitation.

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 :)

I hired Rev Pete through Thumbtack, of the 3 responses I received, Rev Pete was the most reasonable priced for what my husband and I were looking for. We got married May of 2014 with a small ceremony and were having a larger wedding this year and we needed a speaker to perform our ceremony. Rev Pete personally drove from South of St.Petersburg to Kissimmee to meet with me before we even signed a contract. He helped me and my husband in the process of writing our own vows. And he was never further than an email away whenever I had any concerns regarding our big day. Of all the vendors I worked with for our wedding I can honestly say that Rev Pete was the most attentive to our needs. We did not feel like just another client. Other vendors only signed contracts and then showed up the day of the wedding. But not Rev Pete! We were very happy with our wedding and with the services provided to us by Rev Pete. He worked with us to create a personalized ceremony that embodied both my husband and I perfectly. He even went the extra mile when we stayed for our sunset photos on the beach and assisted our photographer and videographer when needed. We have nothing but great things to say about Rev Pete! :)

I've had the pleasure of working with Christin Coblentz Photography for the past 7 years. As a busy designer, stylist and curator, I'm always working on a new project and requiring a professional and detail oriented photographer whom can bring my vision to life in photos. I've hired Christin for product shots, fashion/couture photography, family portraits and event photos. Christin is a delight to work with and is always impressing me by her ability to capture things I "don't see" from my perspective as a stylist. She is a hard worker and is always open to trying new ideas I have for shoots. She easily adapts to her surroundings and always makes everyone feel at ease in front of the camera.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND! I am a professional photographer myself and decided to hire Chris to shoot our surprise proposal photos. He was extremely punctual and had a friendly enthusiastic personality. It's easy to see he loves his work and is so passionate about bringing a smile to his client's faces. Chris went above and beyond to meet with me prior to the special day and literally planned out every step of the process with me. Everything from exactly where he would be hiding to take the shots to where we should stand and what angles. He even rehearsed with me LOL. He made the whole experience seamless and a lot of fun. On the day of the shoot, Chris arrived early to get set up and the whole surprise photo shoot went down perfectly. It was a great success! Within a couple of hours Chris had several photos already edited and sent to us so that we could enjoy them prior to us departing on a cruise later that morning. By the time we returned, all of our photos were ready for us to download. As a professional photographer for almost 20 years, I can tell you that Chris's technical abilities as a photographer as well as his professionalism as a businessman were absolutely spot on and impeccable. Thank you Chris for helping us to capture that special moment and for going above and beyond.

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.
