What can I say about Nicole and Jay! They have become not only our favorite photographers but our new friends. They are so easy and comfortable to work with, we felt like we knew them for years. Every pose, every location produced such an amazing photo. Turn around time and email responses were so super quick! And the photos of our engagement session and wedding day left us breathless--so so amazing and beautiful! Working with The Still Life is the best decision we made for our wedding day :)

We had looked and talked to many photographers before we found Carrie and we love her style which is very delightful, fun and romantic. Carrie is experienced and very creative to capture the beautiful and meaningful moments. We just got the photos from her today and we are impressed by the great job she did. Personally i'm a little bit picky and demanding with the professional photos but Carrie did win me. We really appreciate her help and would love to recommend people to this modern delightful photograph style.

Emil, You and Aga did an incredible job with our wedding. We love showing our friends and family the many photos. Btw, thanks for touching up every single one! The video of the church ceremony looks like a scene from The Godfather. Truly unbelievable. You and Aga worked hard and it shows. The whole family gets watery eyes every time we... play it. Thank you again for being so kind, for your hard work and creativity, and for the rapid turn-around. I hope others use my post to help make their decision. Great job!

In all the years of hiring photographers for specialty photography / marketing shots of often hard-to-photograph glossy finish grand pianos, Martika has set new standards of excellence and price/value balance. We asked for about 20 final shots, Martika took 289 and delivered a photo gallery that blew us away. We feel she charged just about 25% of the value of her work. "Highly recommended" is an understatement. Thank you, Martika!

I couldn't have asked for a better photographer! Kimia is very professional yet she feels like a very good friend! She will always update you through email/text and I always get a reply from her right away! She took my pictures in downtown Chicago and she picked out beautiful locations to take the photos. I had so much fun with her and I would 100% recommend everyone to hire Kimia!! Not only does she focus on detail, she is also very knowledgable about photography and she knows how to get the perfect natural lighting/angle in every picture. She made me feel comfortable and it was easy to express myself! All the pictures turned out amazing and I have never been more satisfied in the results! Her pricing is also very reasonable compared to other photographers in the area who charge almost double! She is perfect for portraits, weddings, family photoshoots, senior portraits, headshots, etc...! Her work is absolutely amazing and I will definitely be working with her again in the future! Thank you Kimia for a wonderful experience!

Words cannot do the justice of how breathtaking the pictures were! Geraldine was our photographer for my bridal shower and we did a photoshoot before the actual shower. The photos turned out absolutely amazing!! She was there, on time, so excited and just gave us such positive vibes. We truly enjoyed working with her. She let us be ourselves but took absolutely stunning GQ type shots as well. I wish I had known of her before because she is honestly one of the best photographers in Chicago. If you’re looking for one and ran across her page. Look no more! We had at least 10% of the people attending asking us about her name and info because they absolutely loved her work!!

I needed a professional headshot photo in a short timeframe. Since I never had professional photos done before and had no idea how to find a good professional in order to help me out, I was initially relatively intimidated by the process. Looking up the websites from several photographers, most were only advertising wedding and recreational photography services. Robert put me at ease from the very beginning, showing me some sample headshots he took and explaining me the whole process as well as what I could expect. During all of my interactions with Robert, he has been very professional. Also, it is obvious that he is passionate by what he is doing. He overall did exceed my original expectations, delivering some excellent headshots in a very short timeframe!

Verified review

We hired Chicago Portraits for our wedding and we are so happy that we did! They were very responsive to our needs for multiple events and communicated with us every step of the way. We had Bharani as our photographer, who was eager to understand our vision. We first had a phone conversation to see if Chicago Portraits would fit our needs and once we decided to move forward, Bharani made himself available to meet in person prior to any photo shoot to go over the details. He was very flexible and accommodating to our schedules. Also, we aren't the most comfortable couple in front of the camera, but the photographers put us at ease and even offered suggestions for poses. They were very patient to capture the best photos possible. We're extremely pleased with the results. We intend to hire them again for future events and would highly recommend them to anyone else!

Working with Ryan was a pleasure and I couldn't be happier with the photos he took. Choosing a wedding photographer can seem like a daunting task and I'm glad I found Ryan. Him and his assistant were helpful and creative when taking the pre-wedding photos with just my groom and me, and at the ceremony and reception they were attentive and present to capture every moment. Ryan made the picture-taking process fun, as well, and instead of feeling stiff and awkward with cameras pointed at us my groom and I were at ease and enjoying ourselves. Can't recommend him enough!

This is our go-to photographer. I'm very picky with who I hire and am so glad that I came across Mila. She did our family session and we loved her so much that my husband and I hired her to help us update our business headshots. Thank you so much Mila for all your hard work and going above and beyond to please us. We will be recommending you to our family friends!

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.
