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.

Wonderful Video! I used KMc Video Productions for our multi-camera wedding in July. They were friendly, professional and helpful throughout the entire process. They have a great process that lets you say what is most important to you and clarify the flow of your day, so there is no confusion the day of the event. I love the video and the videographer worked very hard to capture the spirit of the wedding. I definitely recommend KMc Video Productions!

David is a true visionary. He has a gift for taking an idea and creatively bring it to life through photography, technology and the arts. David was the photographer for my wedding. Or rather I should say the visionary for my wedding. My Wedding album and wall photography are so beautiful! I truly enjoyed working with him and watching him create artistically. He is a great listener, has great insight and phenomenal skills. He worked closely with my husband and I to assure our satisfaction. I highly recommend Didomi Design and Photography. I will be working with him shortly, again, on another project!

Wonderful. May 2, 2015 Celebration our 50th wedding anniversary we renewed our vows. Joan took pictures at the chapel and at the American legion hall where we had a great party We had many children at our party. she was so good at getting their pictures. Working with Joan has been a great pleasure. She works hard to get the great pictures and she does mind taking silly ones. My family are goof offs and hard to get them to take pictures. She was wonderful. We will work with her again and would recommend her highly.

Words cannot express how much we enjoyed our experience with Lauren! She went above and beyond being a photopher. Her positive attitude, the help she gave with other details, her suggestions of things I would have never even thought about...she in a word was amazing! The photos we've seen so far surpass anything I could have expected. Candid, sweet, fun moments. Thoughtful, endearing pictures that speak a thousand words. Ifor ever I need a photographer again, if I ever hear of someone needing a photographer...she will definitely be my recommendation. She made my wedding day a fairy tale!

    Veera was an amazing photographer, I just received my pictures and they look amazing, my family and I was so impressed with the results. Veera was very professional and super accommodating. He was very understanding when we were running behind schedule, and suggested awesome poses for the wedding party and the family pictures. I am so glad I went with Veera for my big day, and I would definitely recommend him to everyone.

    Jennyfer photographed our wedding ceremony (before, during and after) this past February (2017). She is FABULOUS! Yes, there are many vendors to choose from, but what makes her stand out is her responsiveness, ability, eye for detail, creativity, cost and personality. She makes herself very available for questions; she took the time to get to know us in advance and to understand what was important to us. She has great ability, and a wonderful eye for capturing the most important moments. Her creativity is one of her great assets. She is also quite flexible; I had a number of poses, shots and angles that I was interested in and she came very prepared to achieve these objectives. She was remembering all the thing that were important to me, that as a nervous and pre-occupied bride I couldn't! She is friendly, kind and and has a very caring and sweet personality. It was obvious to me that this is not just "work" for her; she seems to truly love what she does and it shows. She is unobtrusive while working, and definitely made us feel comfortable throughout the day. Her pricing is very reasonable, and the turnaround time to receive our photos was earlier than expected. I strongly recommend Jennyfer - you will not be disappointed!

    I worked with Karen as an assistant wedding photographer. She is very careful to give detailed attention to all aspects of a job. Karen is good with balancing her client's needs with the demands of a given production.

    Jennifer went above and beyond any expectations that I had. She was absolutely perfect, and made our wedding day THAT much better. She was jumping on counters to get every picture she possibly could! I could not have asked for a more perfect photographer to capture our wedding day. Her pictures speak for themselves.

      My fiancé and I first worked with Kimberly Parker at Kraken Imaging in late 2015. We wanted to create a Star Wars themed Christmas card but were overwhelmed by the process of how to do it. Luckily, we found Kim and she went above and beyond. She is extremely professional, thoughtful and very enthusiastic (even when faced with a fairly odd request). She was able to envision the shots before setting poses which saved so much time and effort. Kim even wrangled a young dog and two very uninterested cats. When we ended she had taken pictures against a green screen and let us know she would get back to us shortly with the final product. It was beyond our wildest dreams. We love showing the photo off to everyone. When it came time to book a wedding photographer there was no question in our minds. We had to have Kim. She has an amazing artistic eye that will allow her to capture our special day in a way no one else could. We decided to book an engagement shoot shortly after our engagement and wanted to go big again and Kim accepted the challenge. We gave her the rundown of our idea and she went to work scoping out locations and researching techniques. Unfortunately, the weather didn't cooperate but she had a back-up plan and the shoot was executed quickly and easily. She had already come up with posing ideas that would work with the theme. We left knowing that the pictures would be amazing but we didn't have any idea just how spectacular the pictures would turn out. We were speechless. I know our save the date pictures will be top notch and our wedding photos will be amazing. I would recommend Kim and her team for any of your photographic needs. You will not be disappointed. -Jen Bose & Nate Swanson

      Elliston Carter was our wedding photographer in September 2013. His package also included engagement photos. He is very professional as well as flexible. He uses the newest equipment. The images taken were clear and very beautiful. We received a bound leather album (which we chose as an upgrade) as well as disks with every image taken. We also received a DVD with a slide show of the images and videos also. The one improvement I would have suggested is a second photographer to capture more actual videos of the days events. I would recommend him to anyone.

      Service impeccable and our photographer is amazing!! He is courteous, professional, punctual, and delightful to work with. Since 2008 my family and friends have booked Racso Guillaumes Photography for all of our family photos and social events like weddings, baby showers, birthday parties, graduations, and proms. Racso Guillaumes Photography captures the beauty of your special day in such loving and memorable ways! My husband and I recently booked him for our 3 children's birthday parties and upcoming graduations, prom, and trunk party. I'm super excited!!!

        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.
