Ms. Souza was very prompt with response to all communication and arrived early for our corporate photo day. She was understanding of people's photo insecurities and posed people to get the best image possible. We quickly received our images to post into our applications. I'd work with Ms. Souza again for another photo shoot.

Amazing experience!! She captured the most exciting time in my life... My Pregnancy! All of my pictures turned out just how I envisioned! She was even able to make my husband comfortable which is important bc most guys lets face it aren't big on photo shoots :) Needless to say we will be using her for our daughters first pictures! Highly recommend Carrie!!!!

Emil was great...we had a big family photo shoot and each family wanted to break away and do a few shots outside of the big family one. We had small children and 2 dogs and with these situations you have to be quick and take a bunch. There is a limited time between naps and little one's distractions and ability to pose. Overall it was a success and we got some wonderful photos within the hour with all of the generations. We did it in the yard and it photographed lovely! PS - With littles you take what you can get and sometimes their facial expressions are what they are feeling in the moment!

Kathy was a pleasure to work with. I arrived to find everything setup for the shoot and she was prepared and ready to go. After a brief conversation discussing ideas and suggested shots we began. Kathy is easy to understand and will bring out the best in her clients. I would recommend Kathy for any picture/photo shoot.

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!

Geraldine helped me with a fun "incognito-style" surprise engagement by capturing many candid photos while hiding in plain sight. After the proposal we did a more traditional photo shoot. Both sets of pictures were marvelous and I couldn't be happier. She dealt with a lot of variation to plan (weather, location changes, timing, etc.) with great professionalism and I couldn't have done it without her.

I can't say enough lovely things about All Corporate Video and Photo. Mike Kozuchowski was so fantastic to work with- I was looking for a last minute photographer for an event I was throwing only a few days before the event. Mike was nothing but professional, easy to work with and went above and beyond what was asked of him. I will definitely work with him again in the future, when another project comes up and I highly recommend to anyone that is looking for a photographer and or a videographer. Thanks Mike!

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!

Lane's craft was my sister's Christmas present. Let me explain. My sister's social media portraits did a great disservice to her. So for her Christmas present, employing Lane's expertise, I arranged a photo shoot for my sister. And it was a hit! My sister now has great photos for her social media AND she has the "Great Photo Shoot Story" to share with all of her friends (on and off line). Thanks, Lane!

This is one of the best experiences I have had with a photographer. Chris made my photo shoot seem effortless! He is very personable and makes the experience fun and approachable. Chris did a great job with all of my food photos and gave great suggestions on food styling, as well as my head shots. I will be using Chris for more projects to come!

Ryan is a professional with great energy. He has all the odds, ends, and relationships to coordinate an awesome photo shoot. Ryan worked hard to keep true to my vision, and ensured the shots I wanted were all shot within our tight timeline. I'll definitely use Ryan again for my next project.

The photographer manages to capture all the special things in each wedding, with memories for the wedding couple to enjoy for the rest of their lives. Very clever and innovative photos. The photo booth encourages everyone to let their hair down, act silly, and enjoy the party and each other. There are lots of fun props to encourage everyone to use their imagination.

At first we were much reluctant to select Soo as our newborns' photographer as we could not see any reviews online like we normally see.But after contacting him and seeing some of his work with newborns we decided to give it a go. So It was a great experience and a hassle free one for our baby and us as parents.He was well occupied with all the nice and unique props.Praises should go to him and his assistant who is well experienced with newborns.They were so patience,dedicated and professional toward the work. So after couple of days he sent us the edited photos, which proved that he has an artistic eye.We love the pics he had taken.Not to forget that he gave us a very reasonable price as well. Further we saw some of his studio settings ,which showed new ideas for family photo shoots with siblings as well. So definitely we are recommending Soo for his work and looking forward to go back for some pics when our baby is a toddler.

My fianc and I won an engagement photo session with Ashley and we couldnt have been happier with the experience. On every aspect of what one would want in a photographer, Ashley has. The photos were EXTRAORDINARY, and the process was so fun. She helped us feel comfortable in front of a camera, her eye for locations to shoot were super impressive. It was such a fun time doing this photo shoot! If you have an opportunity to have her do your photography, do not miss out on it!

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.
