Jack was beyond professional! My now wife and I hired Jack to do our city hall and post city hall wedding photos. He was flexible and very easy to work with. He took so many great shots and his work all proved to be beyond incredible. He was at our wedding early and stayed as long as we needed him.

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!

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!

Bryan is an amazing photographer, videographer, professional and person in general. He was both our videographer and photographer for our wedding. He did a wonderful job and I cherish the memories that he captured. Bryan is very talented in his work. He captures the shots and angles that you would not think of. My husband and I also asked Bryan to take photos of our son as well as the other children in our family. He is wonderful with children and can make even the toughest child laugh and smile. He captured all of their personalities throughout the entire shoot. I would highly recommend Bryan to anyone of my family or friends to meet their photography needs! All of our photographs are outstanding and you can tell how passionate he is about his work and making sure he captures those special moments!

Jimmy photographed our daughter's wedding last September. the pictures are amazing - all of the traditional shots you would expect, but so much more. He had some very unique ideas for special photos of the wedding couple, the rings, the venue, etc. Jimmy is so personable that everyone felt comfortable around him. He mingled all day and evening and we have candid shots of every guest and the wedding party. We would highly recommend him for any event!

Jeff and his wife Angie are amazing! They worked with a space that had difficult lighting and came out with incredible pictures of our winter wedding. From ceremony candid photos to arranged family portraits, we LOVE the album from our special day. Best of all, we had a great time being directed and seeing the creative shots that they put together for us! :) Thank you Jeff Gathman Photography!

Michelle was our wedding photographer in August, 2013. She photographed the wedding and reception, as well as the party the day before. The photographs are amazing, and she had them edited and ready to go quickly. I am especially impressed with Michelle's knack for capturing moments that could never be staged or planned. Michelle's pleasant personality combined with her exceptional skills and professionalism make her an excellent choice for a photographer. I highly recommend her services.

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!

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.

    We had Angelina photograph our family this fall and the photographs were amazing! Her turn around time was quick and she was very professional about everything. The session was fun and she wasn't afraid to act silly with my son to get the right shots! I would recommend her to anyone looking to get their family photos done.

      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.
