Visual Ettiquette's lead photographer, Emil, is an AMAZING photographer and choosing to work with him was one of the best decisions about our wedding!!! My wife and I hired Emil to shoot our photos for our recent wedding in Downtown Chicago. First off, Emil is hands down a great guy who talked with us over the phone before the wedding discussing all the details of our wedding day and offered up some great suggestions for where to shoot around the city. On the day of the wedding he promptly arrived on time, even with all of the crazy Chicago traffic that morning. His warm heart, charming personality, and artistic eye made shooting with him super fun and relaxed. Shooting with him was actually one of the highlights of our day when we went around Chicago getting photographed in the snow around Grant Park and the Planetarium. I can still remember Emil running around (yes actually running) in order to find all the artistic angles to take our photos. He even stood on frozen Lake Michigan to get us the best shots of what ended up looking like photos the wedding photos of our dreams. Oh yeah and for all this, he is 1/4 the price we were quoted by other artistic photographers. Emil gets my wife and I's highest recommendation!!! If you want top notch artistic wedding photography that is still affordable, Emil is your guy! I never knew my wife could be such a supermodel until Emil photographed her!

Listened to my ideas about photographing my home for upcoming real estate sale next Feb. My husband and I wanted photos in the summer of pool and flowers. She had great ideas and angles from within and outside home. Martika was very professional and helpful. Her photos were amazing! She responded quickly with overview of her talents and sample pictures. Would highly recommend her for any photo shoots!

My fiancé and I had Geraldine shoot our engagement photos at the Garfield Conservatory. She was prompt and waiting for us upon our arrival. It was in the low 90s, an unseasonably warm afternoon for late September. And even though the temperature was borderline uncomfortable, Geraldine was fantastic in helping us get through it. Her direction made it easy to work with her (neither of us have ever done a photo shoot before). She made sure to try and find the more comfortable spots inside and outside the conservatory, and that we were staying hydrated throughout the session. While she didn't rush us through poses or setups, she also didn't linger too long and take an unnecessary amount of photos. We had our photos in a week and they turned out much more beautifully than we could have ever expected. We would definitely recommend her to others!

I hired Sally to do two separate photo shoots for me: corporate head shots and some shots in Downtown Chicago. She worked with me each time to select the best items and makeup to wear. Each time the photographs came out great! It almost seemed effortless in the end! Thanks for the wonderful experience, Sally!!

We were visiting Chicago and decided last minute to try to squeeze an engagement photo shoot into our trip. Luckily, Harry responded quickly to our thumbtack post! Harry was very responsive, flexible, and pleasant to work with. He captured some great shots even though we are quite camera shy and got us some edited pictures the day after our shoot! Definitely would recommend

Mark was wonderful! Due to our tight schedule, we ended up having our outdoor photo shoot on the coldest day of 2017 in Chicago. With a great sense of humor, easy going personality and adventurous spirit, Mark created a gorgeous set of engagement photos for us at not one but four different locations. He made our visions a reality and has given us incredible photos that we will always cherish! Don't hesitate to hire Retiro Photography for any of your photography needs.

Ed is one of the nicest, most professional, reliable and helpful people I ever had an opportunity to work with. He went above and beyond in every way possible. I was running the shoot from another city and he helped me so much by finding and booking a location, working with a talent, finding affordable equipment to rent, calling in during the shoot so I could help direct it. I am looking forward to working with Ed and his team again. He is truly a rare individual. Can't say enough good things about working with him.

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!

We hired Eric to take photos at a large party to celebrate our MBA graduation, and we couldn't have been more pleased with his excellent work! He mingled throughout the party without being obtrusive, staged great shots where appropriate, indulged the requests of our quests, and captured some amazing candid shots throughout the night--all of which were quickly made available to us via Dropbox. I'd definitely hire him again!

Jim was always willing to go above and beyond what we expected. He was able to create shots that we would not have thought of, and his "family photo area" was a great way for many families to finally get family pictures taken! We highly recommend him and his work.

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.
