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.

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!

I have worked with a number of photographers over my 40 year as a clay artist, and Lane Cameron is , by far the best of any of them as far as professionalism and quality of his work. The work was done in and around my studio in suburban Chicago. Lane spent most of an afternoon on the job, and I cannot think of anything that could have been done better. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for quality work done in a skilled and professional manner

We held a 50th wedding anniversary with about 80 people invited for lunch and a slide show. We asked Joan to photograph every guest (as singles, couples or family) as they came in through our greeting reception process. Joan arrived on time amid the chaos of my family setting up the American Legion Hall for the event. (Four people cutting and arranging 270 stems of flowers and decorating 12 tables and we were late!) Joan set up her backdrop and lights in her designated corner and almost immediately started to photograph our guests as they arrived. Joan was amazing with the guests and accommodating with every situation. She photographed guest families with 3 year old children through a blind nun family member with beauty and dignity. Joan understood the general assignment well and executed it beautify with no supervision. When situation were not clear, she asked what was required. Working with her was like working with an old friend of many years. Our friends and family commented on Joan's friendly manner and demeanor in working with them. Joan is a "natural" for this kind of work and exceeded our expectations. We asked for and received a DVD of all her photography on this event which she produced before she left. Our intention is to print pictures to send to our friends and family along with the thank you letters and another set of prints to make what will be a very special 50th anniversary memory book.

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!

Jim took our engagement and wedding pictures. He took the time to capture everything from the littlest of details to the parade of family shots for us. We took quite a few outdoor photos as well. He was patient with the elements and made sure to maximize nature's backdrop. We had a list of must have shots that he was happy to take but we're also very happy with what he was able to improvise. He was very professional all through the process and the end product turned out great!

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.
