We were SO thankful to find Monumental Arts and K on such short notice - we had our wedding in a museum in Alexandria and our friend, an amateur photographer, fell through just 2 weeks before our February 21st wedding - I was so scared because the wedding photos are SO important to me, I even still have my parents album and their wedding picture at home! He met with us and we discussed our wedding plans, laid out our timeline, and he showed me the most beautiful wedding albums and enlargements from weddings he photographed before - my fiancé even liked them! We decided right then and there Even though we were just having a shorter wedding, nothing all day, we still went with his more expensive collection (I think it was the Sapphire Collection) because we knew we would be getting an album and wanted two photographers. He showed up on the wedding day and walked us through everything we asked for - even suggesting some outdoor pictures I didn't expect to get because the weather turned out beautiful!! Plus, he stayed an extra 30 minutes after things starting running behind, which was so nice of him. We are so thankful for his work and professionalism! We met with him to discuss the photos we want in our album and to order enlargements, and he made it so easy to do everything. I have two other friends getting married this year in Northern Virginia, and we've definitely recommended K and his team to them!

After a LONG search, covered with other companies that charged so much, I finally found Party Favor Photo for my wedding. Not only did they provide a reasonable price, but their photo gallery looked amazing. On our wedding day they were EASILY one of the highlights of the night! We had Alex help us out and he was very detailed yet easy going with our guest. As the last vendor we booked for our wedding this was a crucial one. Thank you so much!

Elmo is exceptional at capturing unique, special and genuine candid moments. He patiently worked with us on our outdoor wedding day on an extremely chilly and windy day. We needed pictures taken in a few settings that involved tricky lighting, included two kids and some were taken in our apartment which is very small. All of our wedding pictures turned out so incredible and are exactly as we would have liked--not super staged and stiff but instead reflected our personalities and the love we share for one another. Elmo went way above and beyond what we even imagined and we are so thrilled with our wedding photos. Elmo also has such a calm demeanor and I would imagine for bigger groups, he would be so skilled at getting people to work together to get the perfect pictures.

I helped my friend find a wedding photographer on Thumbtack, and we were immediately impressed with Ashley’s beautiful work. She was very easy to work with, and she helped their wedding day run smoothly. The bride and groom were very happy with their photos and said that she captured everything they wanted and more. We look forward to working with her again in the future.

Emy is incredibly attentive to his clients' needs and builds a strong rapport with them. He made our engagement shots and wedding experience an even more fun experience with his humor and incredible friendliness. He's passionate in his work and incredibly hardworking--10 hours of almost nonstop photography on our wedding day! He came out to do pictures for our rehearsal evening free of charge even though it was not mandatory. We negotiated an absolutely awesome deal for the whole photography package as well. If you're looking for someone who is willing to capture your vision whether it be family portraits or weddings and everything in between all with a genuine smile, Emy is your guy!

Jamaal, is absolutely wonderful!! He was extremely professional, on time, and such a pleasure to work with. Jamaal knew exactly what I wanted and he understood exactly how momentous this occasion was for me. My photos are absolutely gorgeous and will last for a lifetime. He even had additional photos available that were so unexpected and beautiful. Jamaal gets the assignment, and captured moments. Everyone keeps asking me who was the photographer???He is insightful, considerate, smart, and sharp. He gets the energy in the room and everything needed for a wonderful photo shoot. You won't regret hiring Jamaal. I'm hoping to use Jamaal for most of my work if he is available, and he will definitely be the photographer at my future wedding!! Whenever that happens! LOL

I could not have asked for a better photographer for my wedding. Not only is she an amazing photographer but she's the biggest sweetheart I've ever met. EVERYONE at my wedding loved Priscilla and the group she brought. I want to have another event where I need a photographer just so I can hire her again!! I don't even know what else to say because my experience was beyond perfect. I encourage everyone to use Priscilla with absolutely no hesitation.

If it were possible to give a perfect 10 star review, I would give it to Doug. He was friendly, flexible, fun and very affirming. I am a minister and Wedding Officiant (I Wed You, LLC) and wanted some professional headshots. Due to my busy schedule I had to change my appointment a few times and Doug kindly accommodated my requests. His positive manner made the photo-shoot process fun and his fee was reasonable. I am a wedding professional Thumbtack vendor so when I needed a professional photographer I turned to Thumbtack and found Doug Sanford. I was very pleased with the photos he took and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him. Thanks Doug and thanks Thumbtack!

Chris is most professional and creative. His work is outstanding, excellent and unique. He did my daughter's senior portraits outdoors and included candid shots that are my favorite even now 4 years later. He then took photos of my children outside in beautiful historic scenery. I also have his photo of a lighthouse hanging in my living room. My daughter and fiancé have now hired him to take their wedding photos. It will be a day to remember and I know we can trust Chris to bring those memories to life in pictures. He is 'c'est magnifique!' Chris you are just the best out there!

Great quality. She was able to maneuver around to get pictures without being in the way even with the small space she had to work with. I will definitely be using her again. Thanks Sarah!!!

Title: Awesome Wedding Photographer Julie captured every amazing moment of my wedding. She made everyone feel at ease, making for the best candid and posed moments. She took a tight space and made it work with a creative thought process. She even got my rowdy wedding party to take direction for the best photos. She was on time, fun, efficient and super creative. Highly recommended!

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.
