I just LOVE Lisa and her photography skills. When we first met I know she must have thought I was crazy, because I booked her nearly two years before my actual wedding date. But she met with me which was a feat in itself with my hectic schedule at the time. I knew I wanted her to be my photographer just from her online galleries, but once I saw her actual portfolio in person I fell in love with her work all over again. Lisa stayed in contact throughout the year, and when we became officially engaged she hit the ground running. I enjoyed each meeting with Lisa, and she even answered my emails late night (BIG THANKS). I am sad that she will be leaving the area, but she has to share her gift with others. Our engagement session was the best, because of her great eye for photography and her all around great personality. Also, because of her suggested photography shooting schedule EVERYTHING ran just as scheduled with time to spare on the day of the wedding. Our wedding was a blast, and Lisa’s pictures definitely tell that story. I am so THANKFUL that you were there to capture each special moment. Lisa you will be greatly missed! P.S. Her company also did the photo-booth for our wedding. It was a HIT!!!! Everyone loves, loves the wedding pictures. And a friend of mine and her family were lucky enough to schedule a family session with her before she leaves. I fully ENDORSE her work and would definitely be a reference for future brides to contact if needed. THANKS a million! Britney The Newlywed

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.

Eric did a great job with our son's senior photos. He offered exactly what we were looking for: professional, creative photos delivered in digital format with full rights to print and share as many as we like. Eric provided excellent ideas for location, time of day, clothing choices etc., while listening to and incorporating our wishes. He is very pleasant and easy to work with, and has a very impressive eye for composition and lighting. We were very pleased with both the process and the result!

All of my prints 8 X10 and larger are UV protected so that they will not fade over time. This coating protects them from scratches and fingerprints. I additionally mount them on styrene for further protection.

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.
