Jack was an absolute pleasure to work with. Although it was only our first time working together, he made me feel at ease from the very start. He is incredibly thoughtful, informative and has fantastic insight and pointers for improving overall posing and expression. Additionally, his turnaround time for edited photos was quick and as promised, which can often be an issue with photographers. I am looking forward to working with him again in the future. I would highly recommend him for portraiture, street style shoots and events.

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 have mostly dealt in the past with the big multi site photography studios. I needed a job done on short notice and was steered towards Ally T. Photography. It ended up being one of the best decisions I have made in some time. Big studio quality and personal care. The 5 star rating is only because they don’t have 6.

Tierney took my bridal shower and wedding photos and I could not have been happier! She was there all day and caught so many great moments that I did not even realize happened! We worked together in advance to make sure she knew moments/photos I wanted to catch also. She went to scope out the venue in advance as well so she knew what photos would be great to take where and the layout as well as lighting of the venue. She put so much extra work into making sure I was happy with the photos I got and everyone who saw my wedding photos commented on how fantastic our photographer and the photos were.

Marc is a wonderful photographer with a creative mind to find the best poses for anyone. He loves to work with nature and the natural light, which makes the best quality photos! He is also very accommodating, whether it's offering his own yard for a photo session or coming directly to you! We have had multiple sessions with him and his photos cover my house! He is extremely professional and patient with my kids. He captures their most natural expressions and smiles by literally getting down to their levels and lying on the ground/floor with them! I would and do absolutely recommend Marc Hanson to anyone looking to get picture done!

Brigette is such a talented photographer!!! I feel so lucky that we were able to work with her for our maternity photos, I have never seen better photos of myself with such beautiful color and light! Her unique vision and passion captured my love for my growing baby bump in a style that reflected me and my husband so well. The location she suggested was a dream and the background in the pictures is seriously breath taking. I am usually pretty shy around the camera but felt so comfortable with her, she has a really relaxing energy which made it really easy to be myself and have fun! I will cherish my maternity photos taken by Brigette for the rest of my life and look forward to her photographing my my son when he is born in a few months!

    Good Morning Photography is always my first go to. Angelina Manzuk isn't just nice and easy to work with, but her work really stands out amongst the rest too. Without telling anyone, everyone knows my photos, used both professionally and personally, weren't done by some average place or person.

    About

    I think that my work is more unique in the fact that I love shooting with a large aperture. This means that my photos have a distinct focal point and you can notice that immediately. I also have the ability to capture moments that might otherwise go unnoticed by everyone else.

    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.
