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!!!

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!

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.

Lane was referred to our organization through a printing company. We were looking for a professional photographer in the University Park, IL area. His work today has been top-notch! The photographs have been sharp, crisp, clean, and just what we had in mind. His response time has been great as well. I'd recommend him to anyone.

We loved absolutely EVERYTHING about working with Mark Burch from Retiro Photography. He was extremely organized, easy to work with, and not to mention, a BLAST! As the bride, he made the wedding day go smoothly and made sure we were on time, which was one thing I thought I was going to stress about. He made up an itinerary of our wedding day months in advance which included pictures of the bridal party prior to the ceremony, pictures immediately following the wedding ceremony with specific family members, and the timing of pictures taken at locations prior to the reception. When we met up with Mark before our engagement photo session, my husband and I could really sense his passion and enthusiasm for photography, which made it even easier to hire him. He was extremely easy to work with throughout the whole wedding process, from before engagement pictures up to the wedding day. He communicated very well with us throughout our entire engagement. Our engagement photo session was amazing and we could not be happier with how the photos turned out. So far, we have only gotten a preview of our wedding photos, but what we've seen so far has exceeded our expectations. We are so happy we hired Mark!

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.

During my undergraduate year at Dominican University, Eric photographed me for a school project. The project consisted of nude photography. His conduct with me was utmost professional. Eric made me feel comfortable and also asked for my opinion during the session with regards to lighting, positions, and adding props. I would highly recommend Eric's services. He is a great visionary and works well with various groups of people.

I have used James Cryer Photography for professional photographs of my Real Estate listings, and cannot sing his praises loud enough! He is the consummate professional: arriving early, helping me stage the rooms and taking a "boatload" of pictures from every angle. He took his time to make sure he got just the right shots. His "editing" of the pictures is unbelievable and were ready for both the Multiple Listing Service and the Brochure for the property. I have no problem whatsoever recommending James Cryer Photography. He is excellent. (PS - if you want to see the pictures from the last home he did for me, just go online to 8S325 Indiana Avenue, Naperville, IL.)

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.
