My experience with Elmo Laing was a powerful trigger of personal memory---from light, to set-up, to processing. By all accounts, he is a meticulous craftsman. Through his eyes and indelible images of my party guests, I am still reliving this momentous occasion ---my 60th birthday celebration. In photograph after photograph, Elmo captured every mood and motion of the affair. He documented the dancing, the band, the striking group portraits, the cake, the room decorum, and of course--ME. His photography has played an important role of constructing memory because the stories leap from their stills. His images are stimulants for remembering---happy lives, families and friends, and what & how we celebrate. I hover over these images! That’s what fantastic photographers do….they show the environment, they show what they saw and they work to compose the best for YOU. That is exactly what Elmo Laing produced for me. Oh, wait a minute, did I mentioned that he is patient, polite, and precise with posing & positioning—a good photographer. Thank you, Elmo for your artistry, storytelling and technical ability.

Joe was responsive to my request for a professional headshot and worked well with me and the weather to get an outdoor photo. I appreciated his relaxed manner and sensitivity to my aversion to cameras. Joe's skill brought forth a good selection of photos from which I could choose. I am pleased with my experience and will hire him again should I need a photographer.

Winstead is an outstanding photographer! This was my very first photo shoot and he prepared me for it exceptionally! He recommended the type of attire I should bring, he recommended how to pose, which stances to make and when! In the end, the pictures looked prolific! Crazy part is, you get so much outstanding service and his price is the most competitive out of all the other thumbtack photographers recommended to me! Save yourself the hassle and stress--hire Winstead and you'll be glad you took this recommendation! Be blessed!

Joshua is one of the best photographers I've ever met. From the beginning of my search for a photographer, Joshua's work and professionalism stood out among the others. While I needed headshots, I also wanted something different, something other than the generic canned ones we've all grown accustomed to seeing. I wanted something casual and spontaneous but certainly not a selfie. As soon as I saw Joshua's portfolio, I knew he was the right one for me. This conviction was confirmed even before I met him in person. Joshua was forthright and proactive in laying out the logistics of what to expect in advance of our appointment. The day of the shoot, he arrived ahead of schedule and allowed enough time to talk with me about his style, his work, and listen to what I wanted and expected. Once the camera started rolling, he made me feel comfortable and at ease and gave me step by step directions of where he wanted me, and what he wanted me to do. I didn't feel like I was posing but stood and acted like I normally do. This gives a much more natural, effective, and stand-out photograph, and I am very pleased with the results. Joshua is friendly, personable, highly skilled at his trade, and very conscientious. He's a consummate professional and has very reasonable rates. I highly recommend Joshua and encourage you to take the time to familiarize yourself with his work. Next time you need a photographer, you now know who to call.

Beyond impressed with Tina's incredible talent and flawless ability behind the lens. She spends careful time and does not make you feel rushed in front of the camera. She goes the extra mile to ensure you are most comfortable at all times. She was also one of the nicest, most friendly, energetic and trustworthy photographers I've worked with! I am thrilled with the final product and her creative touch added to my port.

Justin truly is a gifted and professional photographer! I hired him for my little cousins 1st birthday party and I was blown away by the photos. I have hired many different photographers both expensive and affordable and Justin was not only the most timely in sending the finished photos, but his quality of work was exceptional. I am always in need of a photographer and I actually have a "go to" person, but that person had a last minute change in schedule. I had to find an affordable and reliable replacement FAST and booked Justin about 3 days before the party. Hiring him was a seamless transaction and I couldn't have been more pleased. Looking forward to hiring him for many more occasions to come!

We hired Mark for my Indian engagement party, which included a couple's shoot. We had Mark do the photography and his wife do videography. Mark made sure to keep in touch regularly in the weeks leading up to the event. He would ask us ample of questions and he also researched the Hindu engagement ceremony to be able to better capture the important moments and we really happy with that. On the day of the event, they arrived exactly on time, in fact 30 mins earlier than we expected, giving enough time to set up the cameras, lighting and conduct a photoshoot before the event. Very professional attitude throughout the function. He was very hardworking, and my entire family noticed it. He's one of the only vendors at our event that we felt fully satisfied with. Same goes for his wife, who was taking videos. When the pictures came in, we were in complete love with them. Very high quality and artistic shots. Mark was able to capture the event beautifully and the editing was on point too. I had a bunch of suggestions for editing and Mark was nice enough to incorporate those ideas when editing some important pics, and they came out great. The video was okay too, Mark supplied us with 3 copies of a DVD with the main highlights of the event and also an SD card with basically everything they had captured. We wanted to make sure that the ceremony, speeches, performances, games and free-dancing elements of the night wouldn't go unnoticed and we didn't want to burden any of our close friends or family to take videos for the entire night. That's when we got the idea to hire a team of two photographers and have one of them do the video. Mark's wife is not a professional videographer so some videos were shaky and kept going out of focus but that's because they didn't have a professional video camera which we agreed on to begin with. Overall I have no complaints with this team and I will definitely be hiring Mark and his wife for other family events.

Candace was the photographer for my wedding and I loved both the photos and her wonderful work style that enabled her to fit seamlessly into an intimate, family event. Because we had a more intimate event, Candace brought a more creative, editorial approach to our photos that successfully told our unique story. I learned that she has a TV producer background and her visual storytelling skills were on full display. Finally, she has the most lovely personality. It was as if a close, trusted friend was capturing the memories from our special day. I give Candace my highest recommendation.

Project Inspire requested the services of LNJ Designs Photo for an annual fundraising event. We hoped to capture photos of our performers, audience, speakers, and event paraphernalia in an effort to have beautiful content to show stakeholders on our website, social media, and promotional materials. Leslie did an amazing job, blending into the crowd, making people feel extremely comfortable with her as a photographer, and capturing the shots we requested. She was extremely professional, and I would highly recommend her!

I've worked with numerous photographers before, but none of them compare to Hassan Malik. He has an eye for taking pictures that focus on the subjects and soften the background. He takes the best angles of the subjects (for me it was my fiancé and myself for our engagement session) to ensure that the subjects look the best. His editing skills are phenomenal. He uses airbrush to remove blemishes off of the subjects' faces, he correctly uses saturation and contrast, he plays with the lighting well especially in outdoor photos, and he knows how to take photos that highlight the subjects and make unforgettable memories. Something else that doesn't speak as much to Hassan's photography and editing skills but I think is so important is how professional Hassan is. Not only does he take his job seriously (arriving on time, with the appropriate equipment, etc.), but he truly wants to take wonderful photographs. He goes out of his way to take the photos, sometimes even positioning himself in awkward places so he gets the perfect photographs. He is fun to work with, very easygoing, and he truly wants to provide his clients with the best photographs. I would highly recommend him to anyone (in fact, I've already recommended him to a few friends who are looking for photographers!). I am so glad we chose Hassan for our engagement session photos - they are amazing and my fiancé and I will cherish them for forever!

One of the best Photographers the DMV has to offer! We actually came across Jamaal while he was covering my Soror's Wedding in Baltimore this past year! We had been looking for a photographer for the longest time and we were farmiliar with is work, but watching him while he worked is what sealed the deal for us. He floated around the room effortlessly leaving so many smiling faces in his wake, including ours. We didn't even need to see the final photographs, we were already sold(The Photographs were pretty darn awesome too!). We immediately reached out to Jamaal to schedule our engagement shoot and he didn't disappoint! My partner and I were brought to tears by the images. His turnaround is unmatched! (1-2 days). If you're on the fence about booking Jamaal, consider this the push that gets you over the fence. Book him. Now! You will not regret it, we didn't! Not one bit!

We couldn't be more pleased with the professionalism and the quality of this experience. We are always in need of photographers and Two Jakes Photography met our expectations. A senior executive sat in on our last program that Two Jakes to photograph. He watched Jake take photos of the session and at one point remarked "I can just tell, by the way he is capturing these photos, that they are going to be great! THAT is a great photographer!" We are so pleased with the results!

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.
