"I would say this is the most amazing photographer that I have ever worked with but she is more than that. She is the most amazing PERSON I have ever worked with on anything period! She is professional, courteous, and accommodating yet easy going and fun-loving! We hired her to do my daughter's senior pictures and I can't even begin to describe what an incredible experience it was. Not only did she do a fantastic job she did it at the last minute. The photographer that we originally hired cancelled 4 hours before the scheduled shoot. He was worried about the weather forecast. I knew it was a long shot to try and find someone else at the last minute but we had already put a lot of preparation into getting ready for the session. By that I mean we had already picked the outfits, done the hair and makeup and I had transformed the back of our SUV into a sort of fitting room. Since we were doing the shoot Downtown St Louis I knew my daughter would need a place to change clothes so I was prepared. Little did I know that Giovanna, even on such short notice, had us covered for any eventuality. She had her own little pop up dressing room, towels, umbrellas and just about anything else you can think of or would need. Again she did all of this with just a couple hours notice. Only later did I find out that she lives about an hour from the location we had chosen for the shoot so really she put it together in about an hour and she did it without hesitation. Needless to say I was extremely grateful for everything she was doing and I told her I couldn't believe what all she had done to make it happen for us. Her response was simply, "I like to make people happy." Now you know what I mean when I say she is the most amazing PERSON period! How many photographers would drop everything they were doing last minute on a Sunday afternoon, meet a strange client an hour away, and be more professional and prepared than any photographer you have ever worked with before......only GIOVANNA von NIDA PHOTOGRAPHY I guarantee it !!!"

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.
