Cody was wonderful for our engagement and wedding photos! He put us and our guests at ease (and I am not normally comfortable in front of a camera, let alone under the stress of all of the last minute things that pop up during a wedding!). He stayed in touch with us regularly from the day we decided to hire him up to the wedding, and seemed to really understand what our goals were for the overall aesthetic of the wedding. Right from the start he was enthusiastic about our ideas for a library shoot for our engagement photos and our wedding at Hunter Mansion. He perfectly captured the elements of each location that drew us to them with his photography. The biggest thing I wanted from the wedding (aside from pictures of the ceremony and the shots with our families) were candid images of our guests during our reception as we had arranged for a murder mystery that I knew would have a lot of great moments that I would probably miss in all of the chaos. He captured those moments wonderfully without intruding in any way. He also captured some wonderful images of the beautiful flowers a friend of my mother-in-law designed for us. The pictures are beautiful and exactly what I had hoped for. Aside from his talents as a photographer, Cody is great to work with in general. He was friendly, communicative, and helpful even with things that weren't really part of his job at all - case in point, none of the groomsmen knew how to tie a tie, but he helped them all with that. He took a lot of stress off of what would have been a very nerve-wracking day. My husband and I are immensely grateful for everything he did for us, from the engagement photos all the way through to the wedding.

Bill showed up almost a half hour early and started right in shooting extra candids of us getting ready, which we really appreciated. It was a very hot August afternoon, and he found a great spot in the shade of a big tree to shoot all the wedding party pictures and family pictures. His energy level and enthusiasm were great all day! He followed us around for hours after the ceremony getting great shots of us interacting with all our guests. When his flash malfunctioned during the cake cutting , he replaced it with a backup and reshot it for us right away. All his 1st dance pictures came out great, and he stayed an additional half hour after that, as he had said he would.

We had our family pictures taken by Reflections Photography by T. Our pictures were taken outdoors, so we were able to include our family pets and Tammy was very professional dealing with the dogs and capturing beautiful scenery. We are very pleased with the pictures, and we would highly recommend Reflections Photography by T.

Bruce and Paula were amazing! They were very helpful with my first professional photography session. They helped me pick out what outfits would be best and were great with guiding me into the various poses. Plan on using them for my next session

I’m extremely fortunate I have had the opportunity to work with Paul in the past. For as humble as he is, Paul has the skills of someone who has been doing photography for a good while. When I received my photos, I was shocked to see just how high quality they were from the editing, lighting, angling, and down to the picture as a whole. While we usually just find a few angles we like of ourselves and replicate those for every photo we are in, Paul is great at making every part of you look “Instagram worthy”. Whether you are looking for a photographer for your wedding, graduation, family gathering, community/private events, or building a modeling portfolio, Paul delivers on both quantity and quality. I definitely plan to contact Paul in the future to work with him again.

Elijah is one of the most approachable photographers that I have ever worked with. Not only does he come prepared with a creative vision, he makes his client feel comfortable and confident from beginning to end of the shoot. His work is of the highest quality and each photo is as unique as the personality of the subject. I would recommend Elijah to anyone for his elevated skills, his sincerity, and his professional demeanor.

      Aly Mae Photography which she renamed to Aly Carrol Photography is everything I was looking for in a photographer! I first used her for my senior picture, and then used her again a year later for graduation photos. She is awesome! She is flexible and will do anything you have in mind to get that perfect shot! I would recommend her to everyone!

      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.
