Isabel was wonderful to work with. She photographed both our Civil Ceremony and our Reception over the course of two days. She was prompt, professional, and overall a joy to work with. We're still loving going through our photos and reliving our wedding weekend. Thank you Isabel!

We had a great experience with Nicole. We met downtown Chicago for an hour session for family portraits. We included both indoor and outdoor photos and the entire experience went smoothly and quickly. We started right on time with Nicole having some times to scope out the surroundings and have setting ideas. We have young children so this saved lots of valuable time. We got some great city shots as well. Overall, the experience was exactly what we were looking for. Be prepared to pay up front, I'm not sure if all photographers expect payment first. But Nicole is wonderful to work with, already recommended to some friends!

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!

We hired Mike and Kimberly as photographers for our company event/picnic at the end of June and we were extremely impressed with their work. They were extremely polite and friendly and even with the extreme heat they never slowed down! Mike even went above and beyond and brought his video came and was able to do an aerial time lapse of our event which was awesome! I highly recommend them for anyone looking for a photographer or videographer for their next company event! We will be using them again for sure! Kate ADP

We decided late that we wanted a photographer for our annual holiday party. Lino offered to arrive early to set up the backdrop and then photograph during a specified block of time. The pics were so much fun; exactly what we were looking for!! Thank you!

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!

Mila was fantastic to work with! We were very comfortable with her from the start of the shoot. She is creative, sweet, patient (I say this because we have a very active 1-year old), and a talented photographer. This was our first professional photo shoot as a family and she made the process enjoyable, low stress, and definitely worth the money.

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.
