My Fiance and I struggled to find a photographer for our wedding. We have a very laid back style and both hated the idea of wedding pictures that were posed and unoriginal. We wanted someone who could capture the true moments from our day, our family and friends laughing and loving. We didn't want to do an engagement shoot so it was tough to find a photographer whose style we both agreed on without actually having interacted with them in person. From the moment we spoke with Nicole on the phone, she was so open and so confident that she understood the style we were looking for. When our day came, she was punctual, laid back, and so easy to work with. We've seen previews of our photos and they are exactly what we wanted. I seriously can not thank you enough, Nicole! Thank you for capturing our day how we envisioned it. I would totally recommend The Still Life Photography! and would hire her 100 times again!

I discovered Carrie Leah Photography through social media and was so impressed with the work she had done for my friend that I had to have her do our family pictures while I was in her area. I live in California but was coming to Texas to visit family so I booked a session several months in advance. In a word...PLEASANT. That may not sound as amazing as it should, but it is the most amazing compliment. I am the mother of a 2 year old and 7 month old and our first family photo session was actually a very pleasant experience! We left all the details up to the professional. Location, time, props, etc, and Carrie was on point. Not only was our location and time perfect for little ones, but she brought the cutest props for my boys. Best of all was Carrie's attitude. She met my little guys on their level. She was patient yet focused and always encouraging. She was able to capture my family in love and life, stress free. My experience with Carrie Leah Photography was so wonderful that it inspired me to invest in a nice dslr camera only to quickly learn that it is not as easy as she made it look!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

I was truly blessed to find Kimia who photographed my wedding on 11/12/16. This young woman is a beautiful person inside and out. My kids felt comfortable around her and she was able to capture TONS of beautifully candid photos of our special day. I hope to use Kimia for all of our photography needs in the future. She is truly gifted!

We asked Mike to come and take headshots of our high school actors for the upcoming Fall Play. Mike was very flexible with finding a time to come and work with us. He was very professional and made everyone feel very comfortable in front of the camera. The turn around time on the photos were very quick and they turned out better than anyone could ever hope for. Would not think twice about using Mike Sansone Photography in the future or recommending him to others!

I am so happy with Nikki's photography. We took photos outside and the weather was very hot. We were worried that we wouldn't have many pictures turn out because it was so uncomfortable outside. Nikki generously offered to return for a mini shoot at no cost if there were not enough pictures that we were satisfied with. She then edited all of the photos that same night, and we were able to view them the next morning. She did this so we could have peace of mind about whether the photos would turn out or not. The photos turned out beautiful. Nikki was very quick to return phone calls and emails, as well. We will be scheduling our Christmas pictures were with her too.

Sally is a wonderful, artistic, creative photographer with a unique perspective that results in captivating, dynamic photos. One thing I love about working with her is that she lets me look at the shots as we go, adjust, and offer suggestions. She has a commitment to excellence that makes her the best.

Tony was well aware of the best spots to take our family photos. He was prompt to respond to my Thumbtack listing, on-time for the photo session and willing to take more than enough shots. I wouldn't hesitate hiring Tony for future professional photography needs.

I wanted to learn how to use my camera to take better quality pictures. I usually left my camera on the auto setting and hoped that the pictures would turn out good. Joe offers classes on learning photography through the J. Wilder Studios. At first I thought I was not certain about this since it was not a class like setting. We sat on the couch in the front of the studio and went over the basics of the shutter and aperture settings. In addition to teaching me the basics of the camera he took the time to go over any questions that I had regarding photography and how to use the camera. I am looking forward to my next class with Joe and what I will learn.

We are extremely pleased with the photographs Markowski Photography took for our son's baptism. We are especially happy with the black and white candid photos taken during the actual baptism. The photos of the blessings and the church were absolutely beautiful. They captured every aspect of the event and us as a family and gave a beautiful description of our family's joy. He also took candid photos of our family and friends and captured our son's joy and laughter during the event and the party following. He engaged our son very well so that our son was very happy to take photos with everyone and they came out beautifully. Everyone has been raving at how beautiful they were and how well they captured the joy and emotion of our family. Konrad was very professional, kept in contact, followed up quickly, responded to all calls and emails and delivered the photographs on time as promised. Beautiful photos, beautiful quality. We highly recommend Markowski Photography and will absolutely be contacting Konrad again for our next family photo needs.

3Eagles Aerials Imagery really went above and beyond to provide quality service. Arber was very easy to work with as there was no issues with scheduling, he was on time, and he provided great photos. He was receptive to any additional edits I requested and even provided option for video- which was completely unexpected and very greatly appreciated. I highly suggest using 3Eagles Aerials and Imagery for your future photography projects. They have been the most pleasant photography company I've worked with. I will definitely be using again for future projects.

During my undergraduate year at Dominican University, Eric photographed me for a school project. The project consisted of nude photography. His conduct with me was utmost professional. Eric made me feel comfortable and also asked for my opinion during the session with regards to lighting, positions, and adding props. I would highly recommend Eric's services. He is a great visionary and works well with various groups of people.

We hired James Cryer Photography for a real estate shoot and we would highly recommend his services. Jim was thorough in finding what we wanted to focus on in the house, arrived on time for the shoot, took his time to find the best light and angles for all of the rooms, created some great photos and even came back a few hours after the initial shoot to capture a stunning twilight shot of the front of our house. In addition, viewing and downloading the images from his website was straightforward and our listing agent was easily able to upload them to our online listings.

Working with Olivia was absolutely amazing. Olivia responded to me within 2 days of me reaching out to her. She let me know that she would stay with me for as long as it took to go around campus and get the shots that I really wanted. It was so apparent that she is very skilled at photography, telling me to angle my head this way and unclench my hand and turn that way. None of it felt uncomfortable, and the end result showed! The photos were beautiful and I'm still getting complements from people 2 weeks later!

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.
