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!!

What can I say about Nicole and Jay! They have become not only our favorite photographers but our new friends. They are so easy and comfortable to work with, we felt like we knew them for years. Every pose, every location produced such an amazing photo. Turn around time and email responses were so super quick! And the photos of our engagement session and wedding day left us breathless--so so amazing and beautiful! Working with The Still Life is the best decision we made for our wedding day :)

We had looked and talked to many photographers before we found Carrie and we love her style which is very delightful, fun and romantic. Carrie is experienced and very creative to capture the beautiful and meaningful moments. We just got the photos from her today and we are impressed by the great job she did. Personally i'm a little bit picky and demanding with the professional photos but Carrie did win me. We really appreciate her help and would love to recommend people to this modern delightful photograph style.

Hired VisualEtiquette as our wedding photographer and the engagement session was included in the package. We just received our engagement photos back and could not be more pleased. Emil was able to capture every moment, many un-posed and many posed. He has great ideas that he will share with you, but also encourages you to bring your own style and props if that is the route you want to go. Friends and Family are raving about the photos, saying they are some of the best engagement photos they've ever seen! VisualEtiquette has competitive pricing yet exceptionally better quality compared to some of the very high priced photographers we interviewed while choosing our vendors. Emil is a busy photographer, so it sometimes takes 2-3 days for him to get back to me, but he never fails to answer our questions.

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 couldn't have asked for a better photographer! Kimia is very professional yet she feels like a very good friend! She will always update you through email/text and I always get a reply from her right away! She took my pictures in downtown Chicago and she picked out beautiful locations to take the photos. I had so much fun with her and I would 100% recommend everyone to hire Kimia!! Not only does she focus on detail, she is also very knowledgable about photography and she knows how to get the perfect natural lighting/angle in every picture. She made me feel comfortable and it was easy to express myself! All the pictures turned out amazing and I have never been more satisfied in the results! Her pricing is also very reasonable compared to other photographers in the area who charge almost double! She is perfect for portraits, weddings, family photoshoots, senior portraits, headshots, etc...! Her work is absolutely amazing and I will definitely be working with her again in the future! Thank you Kimia for a wonderful experience!

I've had headshots done in my past with not so great photographers so when I was looking of a new photographer I was feeling kinda worried about who to chose but I am beyond thankful my friend recommended Mike Sansone Photography to me! Such an unforgettable experience. Mike is very good at what he does and makes you feel so comfortable/ confident behind the camera! Needless to say if you need new headshots done I highly recommend Mike!!

We had a great experience with Tony. He arrived early which was nice to not have to worry about where's my photographer? I had looked through portfolios of other photographers and just really like his style. Although it was a little more than the other quotes I feel I was well worth it. The other examples I saw were pretty average. You can tell that Tony has a lot of experience with photography. My pictures turned out great and he got them done so fast! I would highly recommend this company for your photography needs!

This was our first family photo session with our 6 month old. I also had Konrad take professional photos for me. I could not have asked for a better photographer! Konrad was easy to work with from our first call where he asked a lot of great questions, to working through location challenges the day of, to engaging our son so he could get great shots. He brought his assistant who was amazing at suggesting poses and giving guidance. We are so pleased with our images and look forward to having him as our photographer going forward.

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!

Eric was such a fantastic hire and I highly recommend him for any type of event you're planning for. I reached out last minute for a full day conference and he replied immediately, arrived early the day of, and was a kind and professional presence throughout the day. He took a lot of initiative to be proactive about getting specific shots so I had time to focus on other details instead of checking to make sure he knew where to go. As a photographer myself, I was particularly impressed by the quality of his photos, the unique angles, and candid shots of our participants. We've used them for our website, professional development and partner outreach, and I will use him again in the future.

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!

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.
