Isabel did a wonderful job with my wedding. She made sure to capture every special moment, from the cutting of the cake, first kiss, and my father walking me down the aisle. Isabel was professional, dependable, and she provided great quality pictures. In every picture the wedding party looked flawless. I enjoyed working with her and I would definitely use isabel photography services again. I am so thankful and appreciative at how beautiful my wedding pictures came out, and it's all because of my great photographer!!!! Thanks again!!! You're the best!!!

Philip was wonderful to work with and I highly recommend his photography services. He was flexible about scheduling sittings for both my children's individual pictures and very patient. He provided suggestions ahead of time for us to consider and this pro-activeness made our sittings great experiences. The photos turned out wonderful and I have received many compliments on them. I will schedule Philip for our future professional photography needs.

Carrie is awesome. I can tell you that, as a professional photographer myself, I am choosy about who I let do my photos. But, she is fantastic and did a wonderful job for us! I highly recommend her!

Kathy is great! I needed professional head shots on very short notice and she went out of her way to accommodate my schedule. She has been a professional photographer for a long time and it shows in her work. During the 20 minute shoot she was very friendly, and very helpful in telling me what to do, how to position myself, etc in order to get the best shots. She even edited and emailed the pictures that night! If you're reading this you probably already know she also has the most competitive price for a professional photographer in the area. Thanks again Kathy!

I wanted to learn how to use my camera to take better quality pictures. I usually left my camera on the auto setting and hoped that the pictures would turn out good. Joe offers classes on learning photography through the J. Wilder Studios. At first I thought I was not certain about this since it was not a class like setting. We sat on the couch in the front of the studio and went over the basics of the shutter and aperture settings. In addition to teaching me the basics of the camera he took the time to go over any questions that I had regarding photography and how to use the camera. I am looking forward to my next class with Joe and what I will learn.

I was in a pinch to find a photographer at the last minute and stumbled across Studio Soo, and I am so happy I did. I appreciated the flexibility Soo offered to fit in the late appointment, but it was Soo’s post photography work that really impressed me. He culled down hundreds of shots into a select few and offered key editing options. He sent pictures of “before” and “after” changes to get my opinion on the changes, was extremely responsive to any edit requests I had, and delivered the end product on time. In the end, there were very few, somewhat subtly changes to Soo’s original shots. And the end product looks great! I’d definitely recommend Studio Soo.

Jamie was absolutely amazing to work with. We needed a photographer at our event very last-minute, and he worked with us to make it happen! Not only was he punctual and professional, but the photos he took are absolutely amazing, and we received them the day after our event. We will definitely be hiring him again!

Working with Olivia was absolutely amazing. Olivia responded to me within 2 days of me reaching out to her. She let me know that she would stay with me for as long as it took to go around campus and get the shots that I really wanted. It was so apparent that she is very skilled at photography, telling me to angle my head this way and unclench my hand and turn that way. None of it felt uncomfortable, and the end result showed! The photos were beautiful and I'm still getting complements from people 2 weeks later!

We recently did our family photography with Vita and had a very positive experience. Vita took the time to understand our requirements and gave really good suggestions and ideas. In fact, of all the photographers we talked to, Vita was the only one who talked about the comfort of our 4 month old baby in the photography session. The photography session was very relaxed and Vita connected well with the family, which really helped. The final pictures look great and I would definitely work with Vita again.

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.
