I recently worked with Tracy on an event that was an absolute huge success. It was a Mardi Gras event. Tracy's work was top notch and she was very professional and pleasant to work with. Tracy produce professional banners and advertising as well as great pictures at the event including couples pictures.

I have worked with Ana several times for various photo shoots and always had amazing end results. The last time I worked with her though, is probably the best testament to her dedication, professionalism, and attitude. It was an outdoor winter shoot. It was snowy, wet, and freezing but she was very easy to work with; had plenty of ideas on how to make the pictures come out better, and really made me feel at ease. She kept saying how I must be the cold one, but she was right out there with me! She has a wonderful artistic style, a knack for putting people at ease, and is honest and fair about pricing, etc. She is always punctual and in a great mood, ready and excited to capture your moment! She isn't one of those photographers that just snaps a couple pictures and that's the end of it. She will capture the perfect moment. She has always, always had my pictures back to me in a reasonable time frame, and sometimes even way quicker than I thought! I highly recommend her to anyone and everyone who says they need a photographer. Whether it's weddings, graduation photos, or even getting a portfolio started for a modeling career, she can do (and is willing to do) it all!

To Whom It May Concern: I have had the pleasure of working alongside Bryan Nelson for the last four years and have come to know Bryan as a very talented photographer and event planner. Bryan has been instrumental in stimulating public interest in the Sandwich Sportsman Club though his instinctive photojournalist and event logistic talents. His superior organizational skills and his ability to photographically characterize the Sandwich Sportsman Club’s events to the public though his intrinsic newspaper photojournalist periodicals and his ability to promote the photographic side the club’s web-site is awe-inspiring. You will find Bryan to be very professional, creative, steadfast, a virtuous listener, and without any doubt in my mind an enthusiastic photographer. I have come to learn that Bryan has a keen sense and an interminable level of patience in setting up a photo-session that in my opinion will always result in assuring striking and breathtaking photographs of whatever scene Bryan is attempting capturing in his lens.

Had a great portrait session and loved the results :-). The photographer was very knowledgeable and helpful and made you feel at ease so the portraits were not only well done and posed and covered a variety of styles but also had a natural relaxed look. He additionally captured some great candid shots.

Elle was the photographer at my destination wedding. I could not have asked for more beautiful pictures. She captured every photo we wanted- asking us if there was any specific pose or shot we wanted. She was focused during the shoot- not wasting time during the crucial hours of sunset. She took hundreds of gorgeous photos for us to look through. Overall, our experience with her was 5 star from start to finish. Affordable price, gorgeous pictures, and fun experience. Thank you Elle for capturing every beautiful moment of my wedding.

Joan is just one of the best photographers I've ever had the opportunity to get close with and she exceeded our expectations on our engagement photos. We can't wait to get our wedding photos with her.

Moira is in the early stages of her professional career as a photographer, and she is already a few steps ahead of the game. From the initial conversations and quotes to the final delivery, Moira worked with us to make sure our engagement pictures were the best they could be! Her current rates are 'deals' compared to the many photographers we received quotes from. Her turn-around time in delivering the pictures worked very well for us, and she did a wonderful job of making our photos shine bright! She's great. You get the point. Schedule your appointment today!

Kelsey has done two photo sessions for me and my family. I must say she is an outstanding person and photographer. Kelsey accepts ideas easily and provides expert edited photos for you to choose from. We had such a hard time choosing our photos because they were all so perfect. I have future plans for more photo sessions from Kelsey.

Working with Terry was amazing! I was on a mission to have some professional photos taken (very last minute), and Terry offered me a deal that met my needs. When I arrived to her studio, she already had several shots in mind, based on what I previously told her I was looking for. Her and her husband (such a great team) worked together to make sure I felt and looked comfortable in the shots. I am very pleased with the final product of my collaboration with Terry. She worked with me throughout the editing process to MAKE SURE that the photos looked exactly the way I wanted. She went well above and beyond my expectations for the project. If you are looking for a photographer who will go out of their way to meet the client's needs and capture beautiful shots, I would highly recommend you give Terry a call. Thanks again, Terry!!!!

Tyler was very nice and patient. He did a great job on the editing. I do feel like he could have spent a little more time making sure everyone was placed nicely. I did not get a picture of my daughter. The whole photo shoot took less than 20 minute.

    About

    I do makeup for movies and photo shoots. I have worked on set for multiple independent films. I am trained in photography and have done work all around the area. I studied at Whiteside Area Career Center, and I am continuing my art education still.

    About

    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.

    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.

    About

    I am a freelancer. I am very creative, hardworking and work fast. My specialties are in Illustrator, Photoshop and After Effects. I do some photography, and I am very skilled at drawing and painting with any media.

    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.
