I am so happy that my search for an experienced and affordable photographer for our son's wedding led us to Isabel Souza. When I viewed her profile on Thumbtack, I immediately knew she was the photographer of choice after viewing 5-6 other profiles as well. From the first meeting at her studio to the final moments of photographing Steve and Ka Yu's wedding and reception, Isabel was amazing! She has a calm, quiet and very patient demeanor while endeavoring to get the most from the posers. Her style is different from the normal "stock" poses and photos you get from other wedding photographers. She is very creative and as an eye in taking photos that "say" what she sees when looking through the lens. She captures the very thoughts of the ones she is photographing. Just several days after the wedding Isabel began posting wedding photos in small batches and they were absolutely beautiful! Isabel provided us with a wonderful montage of photos of Steve and Ka Yu's wedding day that will be forever cherished. Isabel is not only an excellent photographer but she is a true artist and it was a genuine pleasure to have met her and worked with her. If you are looking for something different in your photos, I highly recommend Isabel Souza.......she will not disappoint you!!

Nicole and Jay did an excellent job capturing the important and special moments of my wedding ceremony and reception. It truly was our dream wedding and they took beautiful shots. Every time I look at my pictures I love them even more. Nicole took some artistic shots (in between a picture frame on a table) and some really beautiful shots a lake. Nicole and Jay were very friendly and accommodating to take any pictures we wanted and planned their own pictures as well. Overall, we had a great experience with them and would recommend them for your wedding photographers.

I spent a long time researching wedding photographers in my area and was hit hard by jz studio's work. After having the opportunity to meet, it was clear how their personality and passion matched their talent, these guys are a force! On our big day they were focused, professional and attentive behind the lens and so much fun during all the bits in between. Group shots were super smooth and efficient, then individual shots with my wife were just a blast. Photography was a big part of the day for us and having the talent and personality of Philip and Zack entrusted with that responsibility was a dream.

Carrie was amazing from start to finish. She took time to meet with me prior to the event, and showed me wonderful samples of her work. Carrie made sure to explain everything fully and put all worries I had about the day to rest. She is quick to respond and very open to discussing ideas. Carrie was early on the day of our wedding and worked with everyone to create beautiful memories of our day. Several of my guests commented on how fantastic our photographer was after our wedding. The final pictures that Carrie returned to us are gorgeous, and we couldn't be happier! I highly recommend Carrie- don't pass her up!!!

We hired Emil with Visual Etiquette after interviewing a few photographers for our wedding. We felt at ease with him after our first meeting. He was straight forward and to the point. He wasn’t pushy. He didn’t try to sell you some expensive photo packages that you don’t need. He did an excellent job. He was on time, professional, patient, and truly likes what he does and it shows. He made us comfortable throughout the day and made it easy to get such amazing wedding shots. He showed us how to pose which I like and the pictures came out great. We could have paid hundreds more for the beautiful pictures with someone else. I highly recommend him. Anna H.

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.

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!

I am so glad we went with Life on Prints for our wedding photographer. We loved working Tony and Michelle - they were able to get all of the requested family photos, and still got many creative shots. We just got our online gallery and the photos turned out beautiful! Can't wait to see our album and order prints!

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!!!

Konrad was exceptionally easy to work with! We had several specific time restrictions, split up sessions etc. and Konrad gracefully worked with us throughout all of this. He is polite, professional and friendly. My husband and I really enjoyed working with him and will definitely hire him again for future events...our daughters baptism for starters. Not only were the final pictures beautiful, we had a lot to choose from and the price was just right! We have had a ton of compliments on our wedding photos....and we love them. He captured our special day with a lot of detail and focused on just about everything and everyone. If you want a modern, kind, easygoing person to work with seriously consider Konrad, you won't be disappointed!

It was a pleasure working with Chicago Portraits; Barney and his team. Professionalism goes a long way and Barney went above a beyond to show this; he accommodated many changes in our photoshoot times and was extremely patient during the entire sessions. Very easy going, perfectionist and an eye for great location and surroundings. I had initially contacted Barney to have him shoot our wedding photos but later on agreed to have him take our pre-wedding photos, which turned out stunning. The photoshoots were both seamless and exciting because he would describe, guide and explain how he would like the pictures taken. The whole process seemed professional but also with a bit of silliness and fun involved which helps in capturing good moments. They made us feel comfortable and at ease and most importantly, the photos look great and unique I recommend Barney not only because of the end product (beautiful stunning pictures) but because of the experience and the way he worked with us. He was patient, punctual and his attention to detail is impeccable. We look forward to working with you again in the near future. Many Thanks!

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!

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!

Jeff and his wife Angie are amazing! They worked with a space that had difficult lighting and came out with incredible pictures of our winter wedding. From ceremony candid photos to arranged family portraits, we LOVE the album from our special day. Best of all, we had a great time being directed and seeing the creative shots that they put together for us! :) Thank you Jeff Gathman Photography!

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.
