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!!!

I discovered Carrie Leah Photography through social media and was so impressed with the work she had done for my friend that I had to have her do our family pictures while I was in her area. I live in California but was coming to Texas to visit family so I booked a session several months in advance. In a word...PLEASANT. That may not sound as amazing as it should, but it is the most amazing compliment. I am the mother of a 2 year old and 7 month old and our first family photo session was actually a very pleasant experience! We left all the details up to the professional. Location, time, props, etc, and Carrie was on point. Not only was our location and time perfect for little ones, but she brought the cutest props for my boys. Best of all was Carrie's attitude. She met my little guys on their level. She was patient yet focused and always encouraging. She was able to capture my family in love and life, stress free. My experience with Carrie Leah Photography was so wonderful that it inspired me to invest in a nice dslr camera only to quickly learn that it is not as easy as she made it look!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

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 am absolutely 100% satified with Martika P. Gartman Photography. I have hired many Event Photographers for both Family and Church Events over the years. However, I must say that Martika P. Gartman Photography is the "best" Event Photographer that I have ever seen with my own eyes. She knew "exactly" how to pose and line up persons for photographs. She took her time, and the Event photographs are excellent "keep-sakes" for everyone attending the Church Event to hear my daughter, Dr. Sheri Prentiss, give a presentation about her newly published book," WHEN EVERYTHING CHANGED: MY JOURNEY FROM PHYSICIAN TO PATIENT", an inspiring book about Dr. Sheri as a breast cancer survivor. Thank you, Thumbtack Staff for making the "contact" between myself and Martika P. Gartman Photography.

I've had headshots done in my past with not so great photographers so when I was looking of a new photographer I was feeling kinda worried about who to chose but I am beyond thankful my friend recommended Mike Sansone Photography to me! Such an unforgettable experience. Mike is very good at what he does and makes you feel so comfortable/ confident behind the camera! Needless to say if you need new headshots done I highly recommend Mike!!

I am so happy with Nikki's photography. We took photos outside and the weather was very hot. We were worried that we wouldn't have many pictures turn out because it was so uncomfortable outside. Nikki generously offered to return for a mini shoot at no cost if there were not enough pictures that we were satisfied with. She then edited all of the photos that same night, and we were able to view them the next morning. She did this so we could have peace of mind about whether the photos would turn out or not. The photos turned out beautiful. Nikki was very quick to return phone calls and emails, as well. We will be scheduling our Christmas pictures were with her too.

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.

3Eagles Aerials Imagery really went above and beyond to provide quality service. Arber was very easy to work with as there was no issues with scheduling, he was on time, and he provided great photos. He was receptive to any additional edits I requested and even provided option for video- which was completely unexpected and very greatly appreciated. I highly suggest using 3Eagles Aerials and Imagery for your future photography projects. They have been the most pleasant photography company I've worked with. I will definitely be using again for future projects.

I recently hired Lauren to photograph my engagement. She went above and beyond. Her pictures turned out excellent, but what impressed me more was her professionalism. She truly cared about making sure the experience was perfect and I received everything I needed. I contacted her to make sure she was ready for us to arrive and she had been setup waiting well in advance. I had many moving parts to my proposal and I did not have to worry at all about her doing her job. It was fantastic! She was also proactive and efficient in returning my photos quickly. If you want a photographer who cares about providing a personal experience for her clients then you need to hire Lauren! She will go the extra mile.

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.

Emily came very highly recommended to me and her work for several other bands really sealed the deal for me when I was looking for someone to assist with photography for my band’s profile. Her shots are an excellent combination of artistic and professional, and she delivers them punctually and in the most ideal formats for intended use.

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.
