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.

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!!

If you want a photographer who is going to do more than just take pictures Jesus Gonzalez is the person for you because he is far more than a photographer. He is an artist who has the vision to see and capture colors, lighting and energies in any scene he is photographing. His focus and priority is creating uniquely beautiful photographs for his clients either digitally, on photographic paper or even on framed canvas. HIs work comes alive through its colors and features that are enhanced in mesmerizing ways. I have seen some of his work and found it to have an unbelievable 3-dimensional effect that made me feel like I was right there in the scene. If you want ordinary pictures those photographers are a dime a dozen. But if you want quality artistic memories of your special events Jesus is the photographer you can trust to do that for you! He is worth every penny and much, much more.

I am absolutely 100% satified with Martika P. Gartman Photography. I have hired many Event Photographers for both Family and Church Events over the years. However, I must say that Martika P. Gartman Photography is the "best" Event Photographer that I have ever seen with my own eyes. She knew "exactly" how to pose and line up persons for photographs. She took her time, and the Event photographs are excellent "keep-sakes" for everyone attending the Church Event to hear my daughter, Dr. Sheri Prentiss, give a presentation about her newly published book," WHEN EVERYTHING CHANGED: MY JOURNEY FROM PHYSICIAN TO PATIENT", an inspiring book about Dr. Sheri as a breast cancer survivor. Thank you, Thumbtack Staff for making the "contact" between myself and Martika P. Gartman Photography.

I was faced with a serious dilemma 3 days before my scheduled event, because the Photobooth company i had hired defaulted on the contacted aggrement and cancelled. In my anxious scramble fir another company, I found Willie Mccloud with Million Dollar Moments. Willie was extremely patient, pleasantly humble and genuinely helpful from our very first phone contact, up to and throughout the event day, even to post delivery of the event photos. Willie indeed saved the day, I greatly appreciate him and will definitely call him for all of my future photobooth bookings!

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!

Could not have had a better experience with a photographer. Harry was responsive to my initial requests, was punctual, took candid and nice quality photos of our events (trust me, this is not always the case, even with professional photographers!), he sent me the pics quickly, and top of all that, he generously donated to our cause!

I have worked with a number of photographers over my 40 year as a clay artist, and Lane Cameron is , by far the best of any of them as far as professionalism and quality of his work. The work was done in and around my studio in suburban Chicago. Lane spent most of an afternoon on the job, and I cannot think of anything that could have been done better. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for quality work done in a skilled and professional manner

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!

Dakota was prompt with getting us our “sneak peak” photo’s from our event. The ones we’ve received are such great quality pictures. He was on time and less expensive than other photographers I looked at. We had 430+ people at our event and he was able to handle it without a problem! Thanks Dakota!

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.

Pros: - my pictures turned out beautiful. - We shot at 5 locations so the base rate was very reasonable considering the multiple locations. - Bethany sent me the ideas of the locations and she was responsive. Cons: ( why I did not give 5 stars) - Bethany was not very engaging or friendly with me. I am used to working with photographers who do small talk or work harder at making you feel comfortable with them. Here, I felt if I would not talk, she would not talk. - She did not give me any directions as to how to pose. Overall, I think you can get great pics at a good price if you are experienced in front of the camera. If you hate the camera or are shy, you may want to tell her that beforehand.

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.
