Philip from JZ studio is an amazing photographer. Besides that his professionalism and attention to detail was beyond comparison. I wanted to surprise my daughter a photo-shoot a month ago and the results were absolutely fantastic. He is also a great communicator. He tries to make it convenient for the client for scheduling the event. I am very happy with the results and I highly recommend the service.

Steven was extremely professional and able to create amazing photographs. He was fun, energetic and creative with the shots and my daughter enjoyed every second. In addition, I was thrilled with the quick upload of all of her shots in the client gallery due to his outstandingly diligent work. We will continue to use Steven for all of our upcoming photo shoots.

Visual Ettiquette's lead photographer, Emil, is an AMAZING photographer and choosing to work with him was one of the best decisions about our wedding!!! My wife and I hired Emil to shoot our photos for our recent wedding in Downtown Chicago. First off, Emil is hands down a great guy who talked with us over the phone before the wedding discussing all the details of our wedding day and offered up some great suggestions for where to shoot around the city. On the day of the wedding he promptly arrived on time, even with all of the crazy Chicago traffic that morning. His warm heart, charming personality, and artistic eye made shooting with him super fun and relaxed. Shooting with him was actually one of the highlights of our day when we went around Chicago getting photographed in the snow around Grant Park and the Planetarium. I can still remember Emil running around (yes actually running) in order to find all the artistic angles to take our photos. He even stood on frozen Lake Michigan to get us the best shots of what ended up looking like photos the wedding photos of our dreams. Oh yeah and for all this, he is 1/4 the price we were quoted by other artistic photographers. Emil gets my wife and I's highest recommendation!!! If you want top notch artistic wedding photography that is still affordable, Emil is your guy! I never knew my wife could be such a supermodel until Emil photographed her!

Listened to my ideas about photographing my home for upcoming real estate sale next Feb. My husband and I wanted photos in the summer of pool and flowers. She had great ideas and angles from within and outside home. Martika was very professional and helpful. Her photos were amazing! She responded quickly with overview of her talents and sample pictures. Would highly recommend her for any photo shoots!

My fiancé and I had Geraldine shoot our engagement photos at the Garfield Conservatory. She was prompt and waiting for us upon our arrival. It was in the low 90s, an unseasonably warm afternoon for late September. And even though the temperature was borderline uncomfortable, Geraldine was fantastic in helping us get through it. Her direction made it easy to work with her (neither of us have ever done a photo shoot before). She made sure to try and find the more comfortable spots inside and outside the conservatory, and that we were staying hydrated throughout the session. While she didn't rush us through poses or setups, she also didn't linger too long and take an unnecessary amount of photos. We had our photos in a week and they turned out much more beautifully than we could have ever expected. We would definitely recommend her to others!

I hired Sally to do two separate photo shoots for me: corporate head shots and some shots in Downtown Chicago. She worked with me each time to select the best items and makeup to wear. Each time the photographs came out great! It almost seemed effortless in the end! Thanks for the wonderful experience, Sally!!

Both Mile and Irena were wonderful to work with....The moment I contacted them for a quote they were responsive and professional. Our family photo shoot not only went smoothly but the pictures were amazing! They're so creative with their unique staging ideas and make you feel so comfortable. Our boys started to get antsy and they were so patient and even entertained them while making sure we got all our shots. They had our photos ready for us very quickly! We also rented one of their photo booths for our son's birthday and brother's wedding. All the guests loved it! Such s fun touch. I would highly recommend using halo photography for photos and all event needs. They're the best!!!

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!

I really enjoyed working with Vita. She’s punctual, professional and fun to work with. I definitely felt comfortable as soon as I met her. She also responds very quickly which made me feel more comfortable. My photos are in the editing process but she has s quick turnaround and the untouched photos are beautiful itself. I would recommend Vita and would love to use her service for my next photo needs

I purchased a voucher for my sister to get professional photos of my nephew. I live in NYC, and Nancy was very accommodating and so sweet through the whole process. She customized a package that was perfect for the occasion. My sister was over the moon after the photo shoot! I cannot wait to see the photos! Thank you Nancy!

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.
