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!

Kimia was so incredibly nice and sweet leading up to my wedding day. She is truly a master of her work in Photography. She is very professional and I knew I didn't have to have a worry about anything. Before the wedding she corresponded with me & provided a contract and invoice, very easy to make payment. I was very impressed. Her portfolio is absolutely captivating and I knew right away she would be the perfect choice for my wedding photographer. She arrived early and set up, talked me thru any photos during the craziness of the ceremony, my family loved her and respected her very much during the process. I can't even begin to describe the feeling of looking at the finished photos. I was sent a link to her website with all the photos and download links. You can even order high quality prints. The photos were so perfect it allowed me to truly look back and have a completely different experience of the wedding all over again. Every picture is perfect and I have never felt so beautiful. I now have special pictures to look back on for the rest of my life of the best day of my life. I give my highest review to Kimia!

Tony was well aware of the best spots to take our family photos. He was prompt to respond to my Thumbtack listing, on-time for the photo session and willing to take more than enough shots. I wouldn't hesitate hiring Tony for future professional photography needs.

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.

We are extremely pleased with the photographs Markowski Photography took for our son's baptism. We are especially happy with the black and white candid photos taken during the actual baptism. The photos of the blessings and the church were absolutely beautiful. They captured every aspect of the event and us as a family and gave a beautiful description of our family's joy. He also took candid photos of our family and friends and captured our son's joy and laughter during the event and the party following. He engaged our son very well so that our son was very happy to take photos with everyone and they came out beautifully. Everyone has been raving at how beautiful they were and how well they captured the joy and emotion of our family. Konrad was very professional, kept in contact, followed up quickly, responded to all calls and emails and delivered the photographs on time as promised. Beautiful photos, beautiful quality. We highly recommend Markowski Photography and will absolutely be contacting Konrad again for our next family photo needs.

Michael was professional and courteous and clearly knew his business. He communicated clearly over the course of our two day event and snapped some unforgettable photos that added life to a relatively reserved conference. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone looking for a professional photographer, particularly if they’re hosting a multi-stage event as we did.

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!

Jen did my son's senior portraits. She was extremely professional and knowledgeable about the best locations/lighting to create quality photos. Jen is very meticulous, yet has a light-hearted way about her that puts people at ease...even teen boys, like my son, who can be reluctant participants. I was thrilled with the final product and used the photos in my son's graduation announcements. Many of my family members commented on how great the photos looked. I would highly recommend Jen Poulos Photography for any portraits or events!

Jeff and his wife Angie are amazing! They worked with a space that had difficult lighting and came out with incredible pictures of our winter wedding. From ceremony candid photos to arranged family portraits, we LOVE the album from our special day. Best of all, we had a great time being directed and seeing the creative shots that they put together for us! :) Thank you Jeff Gathman Photography!

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.
