Gary Walters is an amazing photographer! I’ve had the opportunity to review his work from numerous shoots – wedding, engagement, and general subject matter - and his ability to capture a moment and amplify its meaning is truly exceptional. Gary doesn’t just document an event – his photographs vividly convey the precious emotions occurring in real time. His eye for composition is unparalleled – fresh and unique – and having him as your photographer will guarantee your photos will turn out exceptional! I love his work.

I needed some business headshots done in a short timeframe.. While searching for photographers in the area, I came across Thumbtack and put in a request for proposals. Dan's response came in within minutes. We exchanged a few emails to discuss what I was looking and for and he shot back with some suggestions. We schedule to meet the next day and I was pleased with the enormous amount of time that he devoted to taking a multitude of pictures with different backgrounds/settings. I couldn't be more pleased with the results and the entire experince was a breeze. Dan's service was professional, very competitive and he was very easy to work with. I would absolutely use him again for future photography needs.

Travis did our wedding video last June and we were so pleased with the wonderfully edited Highlight Reel. It perfectly captured everything that we were hoping. We watch it all the time and have shown it to pretty much anyone who will watch! Travis was professional and quiet, we hardly knew he was there (and he was everywhere!), he worked very well with our photographer, even though they met for the first time on our wedding day. We are so grateful for the work Travis did, and hope to include him as our family expands!

Shaun is by far the best photographer for children. In all my years of taking photos with my son I've never found a person to take pictures in 30 mins to 45 mins and get outstanding shots!!! You rock girl!!!!

Dave has a great eye for photography. Our family always enjoys doing a photo shoot. Dave is always on time and has great ideas for photo shoots. Dave's creativity shines through in the final product. If asked if I would recommend Dave for a photographer, I'd say absolutely. When looking at the quality of work for the price u get more than your money's worth, and this day and age that is hard to find. Dave takes his time to ensure the final product is perfection and the customer is happy.

I will be the first to admit I was skeptical of wedding photographers. After researching numerous photographers my wife and I decided on Nafees, we couldn't be happier! He was professional, prompt, affordable and actually took great photos-something all our guests appreciated! The quality of the pictures were so good I actually had him come back to take pictures of my cars..

      Hey guys! We are a Husband and Wife photography couple based in Central IL.


      I am the best person to take photos for every event like weddings, graduations, family photos, and plenty of other things.


      The next season is right around the corner. Why not let me get outside, and let me "capture the moment" of your family and you? My sessions cost $75.00 for a family of 5 or less, and once the photo shoot is finished, you will receive a disc with the enhancement photos, as well as the photo release for you to print at your convenience. I will do weddings, too!

      I would consider my work as my outlook in life. I find the world as a beautiful place with so many places to explore and so many things to be discovered. When I take a photo, I get this adrenalin rush. I feel like once that photo has been taken, that marks a permanent time in your life that you'll remember. Even if it's just a flower or a leaf, it marks that moment and makes it still. I believe photos speak more than words sometimes, and one photo can tell a whole story and say a thousand words. I have loved photography since I was 5 years old, when my grandmother got me my very first camera. Since then, I haven't put a camera down. Photography is my life, and it speaks for me.


      I do beautiful indoor and outdoor portrait, wedding, and commercial photography. I have over 20 years as a professional photographer.

      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.
