I first met Joe Lee in 2011 when I spent seven days with him as we traveled with the Wreaths Across America convoy from Maine to Arlington National Cemetery. Joe conducted himself with the utmost professionalism at each of our many stops along the way. He captured the special moments on audio, video and in still shots enabling me to recount the entire trip as if I was there in person again. This past July, Joe flew to Minneapolis to volunteer as the photographer and videographer for a two day memorial event held in honor of my son, an Army Ranger KIA in 2009. The morning of the first day, my house was struck by lightning and a fire ensued. Joe lost some of his equipment but quickly replaced it on his own so he could still do what he came to. This was a chaotic situation that others may have become discouraged from, but not Joe! He stayed the course and never faltered from his commitment. Joe Lee is not only very professional, he is a very personable guy whose positive presence will add to any event. Highly recommend!

William is a true professional in every sense of the word. His expertise in achieving the goals I had for new professional portraits was top notch. He intuitively understood what I was going for before I even said the first word about it. He was flexible with storage options for the photos as well. Being in the spotlight as a magician makes it necessary that I have updated photos for publicity purposes, but I hate mostly every photo of myself but with his extensive knowledge of incredible lighting effects, William was able to create no less than 20 incredible images for me to pick from. I will definitely be making Tamarack Images my go to photographer for all my professional photos from now on and highly recommend that everyone else do the same.

I hired Ashley to be the photographer for my recent New Year's Eve party and she did a great job all around. She was very responsive and communicated well from the very beginning through the final retouching of the photos. I received many excellent quality photos from the event and overall I am very satisfied with her work.

Joshua indeed is a professional photographer. He was there before we were so that he had extra time to test out the lighting and surrounding environment. During the photo shoot, he made us to feel comfortable and was trying to bring out the true us. Additionally, he does not take a long time to process these pictures. All the pictures came out wonderful. It was a pleasure to work with him!

Thanks to DIM Productions for an amazing experience! Karmin is THE photographer that you want for familial events, sporting events, weddings, and et-cetera. I've hired Karmin a number of times and have never doubted that it was among the best decisions I've ever made. Karmin has impeccable timing, vision and experience to distinguish a great shot from a good one! She's personable, engaging, down-to-earth and just has a way with people that enthralls and disarms them. She's got an uncompromising standard at events and in her private studio. I cannot commend Karmin highly enough! -Al Johnson

Mark was a lifesaver for my daughter's first birthday party! I hired him 3 days before my event as my original photographer cancelled on me due to a family emergency. He was super easy to work with and the best part of it all, is how happy I am with all the pictures. Thank you Mark for capturing the precious moments at my daughter's birthday party!

My husband and I couldn't of asked for a better photographer to work with! She was on time and went out of her way on our special day. She took whatever pictures we wanted and through all the confusion never once complained or seemed like she didn't want to be there. She's excellent to work with as a bride she also helped with other various tasks that were not even asked for her to do. Amazing personality she got along with everyone and is great with kids too!!

I needed to hire a professional photographer to feature one of our outstanding alumni from Western State Colorado University. Since the alumni lived in Washington, and we didn't have any contacts in the area, we carefully researched local photographers and spent hours pouring over reviews and samples. I'm very pleased that we selected Doug Sanford as our top choice. He responded very quickly to all calls, texts, and emails. Doug handled the arrangements for the photo session with the alumni, and produced exceptional pictures which exceeded our expectations. The price was exactly as quoted and a good value for such high quality work. This couldn't have gone more smoothly, even if it had been in our own town. Doug made my job easier. Do yourself a favor and go with Doug Sanford.

THIS IS THE PHOTOGRAPHER OF THE DECADE! I come from a huge family and I have been to a lot of weddings and also worked with a lot of photographers in the past. Gabe by far has been the absolute best of the best! He was prompt, he was professional, and he was witty and charismatic all at the same time. Even when photos weren't being taken, he had us all smiling ear to ear. By the end of the night I had a few family members asking for his business card! Loved loved loved him!

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.
