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!!

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.

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.

We had Dovtographie video our wedding, and we couldn't be happier! Dov was an absolute pleasure to work with leading up to the wedding, on the day of, and afterwards as well. His cheerful and kind demeanor and knowledge of his craft made him the perfect videographer for us. And the fact that he did some drone videography was a really neat added bonus that the guests all thought was really cool.It seems clear that customer satisfaction is his number one goal, and we are very satisfied customers!

We hired Mike and Kimberly as photographers for our company event/picnic at the end of June and we were extremely impressed with their work. They were extremely polite and friendly and even with the extreme heat they never slowed down! Mike even went above and beyond and brought his video came and was able to do an aerial time lapse of our event which was awesome! I highly recommend them for anyone looking for a photographer or videographer for their next company event! We will be using them again for sure! Kate ADP

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!

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!

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

I can't say enough wonderful things about Mark and our experience with him as our wedding photographer. Mark is amazing to work with because not only is he incredibly talented, his easy-going personality made our wedding day so much more relaxed! We connected with him instantly and he goes out of his way to capture those small, wonderful moments that would have otherwise been missed. He is truly a gifted storyteller and it shows in the amazing images he creates!

The experience with Chris was fantastic! Not only is he a consummate professional, but he made the experience so fun, easy and positive. Unlike most family photographers, there was nothing staged. He just let us play and talk, and captured the most magical moments of our family being ourselves. I would highly recommend him to any family who is tired of standing by a picket fence or in front of a backdrop for their family photos. It is truly a unique end product that you will treasure!

I found Ryan on Thumbtack and between offering to take photos with his drone and his palpable excitement for shooting our venue, it was a no brainer to hire him. Ryan and his second shooter were really great! They showed up at the hotel where we were getting ready and immediately got started! We were running a bit behind and requested a late checkout of the hotel. An hour after what was supposed to be our already late checkout, we were still there - luckily, it turned out that Ryan was the next guest to stay in the room so he was very accommodating letting us stay late! Ryan’s team did an awesome job on the few pictures I’ve seen so far - I’m SO excited to see the rest! My husband made multiple comments about how they seemed to be everywhere at once capturing our memories so we could enjoy the day! They even pulled us away a few times during the reception to get more shots during the sunset that turned out absolutely beautiful! Not only did they do an incredible job of directing us and our bridal party for the group photos (which I’m sure was like herding cats) but they truly went above and beyond by bringing some fun props (smoke bombs and sparklers). Those photos turned out great and I’m so thankful that they had the foresight to bring them! The day went by so fast. Ryan, thank you so much for being there to preserve it! Ps I’m not sure why the photos are uploading sideways...sorry!

Really love this place and highly recommend Soo Studio !! I visited Chicago from MN because I had to add a photo on my resume. Pretty sure he is a great photographer not only for wedding, but also portrait photo. I had to wear shirt and jacket for my photo ID, but unfortunately I didn't have one. However, thankfully he lent me his shirts and jackets so I could take great photos. He is also very professional doing post-editing. Very professional, nice and friendly. I really thanks for great photos. want to give this place 10 stars !!

I have been around the block with photographers as I have been styling wedding hair for 18 years. When I work with Ashley, seeing her in “action” and the incredible vision she has completely makes me so appreciative of her talent. She is AMAZING!!🙌🏼

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.
