Karolina photographed our daughter's 1st birthday party. She was professional and punctual, and captured the moments of our party perfectly. The photos were very candid and 'in the moment', as we had requested. She also took some family photos before the event that were lovely. Would highly recommend her to anyone looking for an excellent event photographer!

I spent a long time researching wedding photographers in my area and was hit hard by jz studio's work. After having the opportunity to meet, it was clear how their personality and passion matched their talent, these guys are a force! On our big day they were focused, professional and attentive behind the lens and so much fun during all the bits in between. Group shots were super smooth and efficient, then individual shots with my wife were just a blast. Photography was a big part of the day for us and having the talent and personality of Philip and Zack entrusted with that responsibility was a dream.

We had looked and talked to many photographers before we found Carrie and we love her style which is very delightful, fun and romantic. Carrie is experienced and very creative to capture the beautiful and meaningful moments. We just got the photos from her today and we are impressed by the great job she did. Personally i'm a little bit picky and demanding with the professional photos but Carrie did win me. We really appreciate her help and would love to recommend people to this modern delightful photograph style.

Visual Ettiquette's lead photographer, Emil, is an AMAZING photographer and choosing to work with him was one of the best decisions about our wedding!!! My wife and I hired Emil to shoot our photos for our recent wedding in Downtown Chicago. First off, Emil is hands down a great guy who talked with us over the phone before the wedding discussing all the details of our wedding day and offered up some great suggestions for where to shoot around the city. On the day of the wedding he promptly arrived on time, even with all of the crazy Chicago traffic that morning. His warm heart, charming personality, and artistic eye made shooting with him super fun and relaxed. Shooting with him was actually one of the highlights of our day when we went around Chicago getting photographed in the snow around Grant Park and the Planetarium. I can still remember Emil running around (yes actually running) in order to find all the artistic angles to take our photos. He even stood on frozen Lake Michigan to get us the best shots of what ended up looking like photos the wedding photos of our dreams. Oh yeah and for all this, he is 1/4 the price we were quoted by other artistic photographers. Emil gets my wife and I's highest recommendation!!! If you want top notch artistic wedding photography that is still affordable, Emil is your guy! I never knew my wife could be such a supermodel until Emil photographed her!

I couldn't be happier about the work Kimia did for a baby shower I threw for my brother and sister-in-law. The pictures are beautiful and she captured so many candid moments that my family and I will treasure. In the past, I've always had issues with event photographers not covering everyone - but she was able to capture all of our guests having a good time. She is very prompt with communication and is able to address any questions you may have. With event photography, it's difficult because one you receive the product, there's no going back. You can trust that Kimia will capture the entirety of the event you worked so hard to plan. I highly recommend Kimia!!

We hired Chicago Portraits for our wedding and we are so happy that we did! They were very responsive to our needs for multiple events and communicated with us every step of the way. We had Bharani as our photographer, who was eager to understand our vision. We first had a phone conversation to see if Chicago Portraits would fit our needs and once we decided to move forward, Bharani made himself available to meet in person prior to any photo shoot to go over the details. He was very flexible and accommodating to our schedules. Also, we aren't the most comfortable couple in front of the camera, but the photographers put us at ease and even offered suggestions for poses. They were very patient to capture the best photos possible. We're extremely pleased with the results. We intend to hire them again for future events and would highly recommend them to anyone else!

I can't say enough lovely things about All Corporate Video and Photo. Mike Kozuchowski was so fantastic to work with- I was looking for a last minute photographer for an event I was throwing only a few days before the event. Mike was nothing but professional, easy to work with and went above and beyond what was asked of him. I will definitely work with him again in the future, when another project comes up and I highly recommend to anyone that is looking for a photographer and or a videographer. Thanks Mike!

The experience with Chris was fantastic! Not only is he a consummate professional, but he made the experience so fun, easy and positive. Unlike most family photographers, there was nothing staged. He just let us play and talk, and captured the most magical moments of our family being ourselves. I would highly recommend him to any family who is tired of standing by a picket fence or in front of a backdrop for their family photos. It is truly a unique end product that you will treasure!

Jamie is a great choice for an event photographer. He was kind enough to lower his normal rate to work with us because we are a non-profit, which really helped out budget for the event. He arrived on time and I believe he may have event stayed longer than scheduled to capture important moments. After the event, he posted photos quickly and they looked great! His website also allows participants to purchase photos. Overall, the photos are crisp, clear, and capture key moments, and as a photographer he was polite, always smiling, and kept moving around the event to try and capture all aspects of the day.

Ashley did a superb job with our family photos as well as my maternity photos, I could not have asked for a better photographer! She was on time, extremely pleasant to talk to and work with, and even prepared with toys and books to entertain my toddler as well as signs for her to hold! I just saw the photos and I am beyond pleased, it looks like they were taken in a fairy tale! Gorgeous, sparkling family moments and so many of them with a candid feel. My family and I will all treasure these forever. Thank you so so much, Ashley! Will see you next year for round 2 for sure ;)

Rafay was great. Easy to reach and responsive. Was punctual and needed little direction amidst a chaotic party of close to 100 people. Captured the event beautifully and picture quality was great. And his rate is extremely reasonable given the exceptional quality of his work. Will definitely go back to him if we need a photographer in the future.

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.
