As a photographer myself (no longer in the industry) I know exactly what I am looking for and Jack more than surpassed our expectations. After learning that our "regular" photographer for our fashion campaigns (for social media), had unexpectedly left the country, we were in a time crunch :( There were many challenges throughout the shoot, (None related to the photographer) our location which was booked online did not meet expectations, the outdoor location was barren and the day was extra windy etc. These things happen. However Jack's timely and professional demeanor saved the day. He is very skilled at problem solving and knows his stuff. What we thought was a brightly lit space was not, thankfully Jack was prepared to deal with the lighting issues. Once we received our images we could not be more thankful! Most photographers can get decent shots in a perfect location with all the time in the world. But it takes an amazing photographer to turn the worst of situations dealt to him around and have it so you never knew there were any challenges. We are planning to have Jack be our go to photog from now on.

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!

Dave Rinker is an amazing photographer. He communicated clearly from start to finish. My photo experience was very comfortable and he constantly asked for my feedback during and after the shoot. He promised the magic would happen after I selected the poses I wanted, but honestly it wasn't magic, but a miracle. My author headshots are even better than I hoped for.

We recently hired Dave for a commercial photography shoot. It was last minute, and he was highly flexible and accommodating. But what we appreciated most was his experience. We work with a lot of photographers, and admittedly, our standards are very high. Dave exceeded our expectations! He provided us with exactly the shots we needed the first time around. Thanks, Dave!

Kelly was so awesome to work with. She made my daughter and niece feel very comfortable and she had a lot of patience with them. She was extremely professional. Kelly was exactly what I was looking for in a photographer and the photos turned out adorable. I would highly recommend her and definitely hire her again.

Working with Abby was great. She had some amazing ideas to make our daughter's photoshoots very memorable and she was very willing to work with my wife and I to incorporate some of our idea into the mix as well. The end result was a huge plethora of well crafted photos capturing numerous themes. Recently my daughter has been going through a bit of stranger danger but she took to Abby far quicker than most adults making the photoshoots much easier to go through than some experiences we've had in the past. Not only that but the turnaround for processing the photos and obtaining the final result was minimal, and in some instances only a few days for wonderful professional photographs We books four sessions in advance and as a result some of the later sessions would occur during very hectic times but Abby was very willing to work with our schedules allowing everything to move by smoothly. We would definitely recommend Abby to anyone who is looking for a photographer for their needs.

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.

Jen and Jesse are the best photographers in the area! Absolutely incredible. Everything was so easy and effortless, from booking the appointment to the actual photoshoot! I highly recommend Catalyst design and photography. They are masters of their craft. My daughter was getting photos taken to submit to modeling and acting agencies. She is 7 years old and usually very shy and reserved around new people, but Jesse and Jen were so warm and interactive with her, she was immediately comfortable. They made her feel like a little star. � She had a fun time, so much so she didn’t want the photoshoot to end. We received our photos a few days after the photoshoot and they were stunning to say the least. We cannot wait to get more photos done with them!!!! Thanks so much Jen and Jesse!

Maxwell Creative has been amazing to work with! His creativity and eye for photography is wonderful! As a fellow photographer I have hired Jon to work quite a few weddings with me. Jon is always on time, friendly, and works hard! His pictures are amazing quality and he has an abundance of equipment to make sure the job is done well! I will most definitely be working with Jon in the future!

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!

    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.

      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.
