Jill was so pleasant to work with, professional, prompt, and very accommodating. She handled our engagement and wedding photos and we couldn't be happier with the results! I would love to work with her again.

Mike Cotton did an outstanding job of photographing our 25th wedding anniversary party. We are truly grateful for the beautiful photographs he took, which give us lasting memories to return to again and again. The evening was a joyous one for us, and the happiness of all of our guests comes through clearly in Mike's images. We especially appreciate the gorgeous depths of color he achieved, the way he graciously invited our guests to pose for portrait shots, and how he captured all of the important moments during the evening. We do not recall him moving about, taking hundreds of photos (he was very discreet), but the proof of his excellent work arrived in the mail less than one week later. Thank you, thank you, thank you, Mike! We heartily recommend your service to others who are planning to hire a photographer for an event.

Connie is not only a very fine portrait photographer, but she is also very pleasant to work with. I have used her services for my client Christ Church Cathedral when I needed official portraits of board members and staff. She always did the job within the budget and on time, even when I had her working on a tight deadline. I recommend her highly.

Friendly and respectful toward us (a lesbian couple including a trans girl) and worked well with us. Communicated enough to plan ahead for our wedding photos, but also went with the flow when we added a bunch more groups of family photos in the moment than we'd been thinking of beforehand. She also produced a wonderful set of photos that really captured the day.

Brandi and Jason just did both photography and videography for my wedding. They came out of their way to meet with us and were just really nice and attentive to what our needs would be. The day of the wedding they divided and conquered to get all of our still photography as well as the video but were very professional and unobtrusive. My entire bridal party liked them because they were fun and not pushy or demanding at all. I also really appreciated that they gave us a break on price by bundling the two services together because I have friends that paid a lot more and did not have as good an experience as we've had. I would definitely recommend them.

Choosing Ashley and Images Photography for our wedding was the best decision that we made! She was funny, helpful, directed us very well, and let us be ourselves in our sessions. She is amazing at capturing the proper lighting and making sure that the job is done in excellence! We could not be more happy with our engagement and wedding photos! Not only will Ashley be our lifetime photographer, she and her family are going to be our lifetime friends. Thank you so much!!

I hired Chris in May 2018 because I needed professional author photos that looked great and set a particular mood. Her package was not only a great value, but she was the first photographer to get back to me with answers to my questions. I quickly booked a photoshoot with her. The photoshoot was a lot of fun, and Chris moved me around the studio to get different poses under the perfect lighting. She was extremely friendly and professional. Within a few days, she sent me the gallery of photos. They were all so great that I ended up buying more than I'd originally bargained for. I plan on using multiple on various storefronts or even switching them out from time to time to let them all shine! I'm attaching photos that Chris took so you can see the various set-ups we used. If you are looking for a photographer to take professional photos of you, Chris is a fantastic choice. She's easy to work with and gets the job done in a short time. This was my first time hiring on Thumbtack and Chris made sure it was a wonderful experience. Thank you!

We hired Lena after meeting with her at our home, where we were to be married. She was responsive to our request, easy to work with and did what she said she'd do. Her skills on the day of the wedding were above average. She was able to clearly and with good humor direct all of our party to get the photos we wanted and ones she felt appropriate. She captured the spirit of the day and took our natural surroundings and made them look amazing. She provided us a sneak peak of a few photos a week after the wedding and delivered both access to an online vault of pictures about 60 days after the event. Yesterday we received a thumb-drive with out personal wedding picture monogrammed on it, a thumb-drive containing all of our photos. I would highly recommend this professional and welcome any questions form anyone considering her.

Morgan is a great photographer! Morgan is so easy to work with and was very responsive while scheduling the shoot. She made me feel so comfortable being in front of the camera and picked a great spot to do the photo shoot! I would 10/10 recommend her to a friend. I’ll be back for more.

I had recently gotten married and realized that I did not have a good 'couple picture' ... of me and my wife. My first option was LGP from the start; by word of mouth. I called the studio and was able to be set up within a week. The good part is in the results, pictures were professional, just what I was looking for. This picture now hangs in my living room for all to see. I'm totally pleased by the results! YES, I will continue recommend LGP photography.

I’ve had several photo sessions with K. Angel Photography and was VERY pleased each time I met with her! She arrived to the locations early to set up, find the best areas for photo, and lay out different outfits whether it was for maternity or newborn photos. Her knowledge about photography is absolutely spectacular. Children love her and it shows in their pictures! She photographed my daughters and they were completely comfortable with her. So that made this mommy happy! I also did a maternity shoot with her and I was blown away while looking through the album. Her photos stand out from all the rest and I love that! She follows through on her promises and makes sure the client is 100% satisfied. Her wedding gallery is absolutely beautiful. She photographed a wedding I had the pleasure of being a part of and she knew exactly how she wanted the photo set up. I highly recommend K. Angel Photography for any event!

Finding a wedding photographer who is both creative and insanely cool is hard to come by, but if this combination interests you, look no further. I found David by googling wedding photographers in Cincinnati. What initially piqued my interest in David’s photography services for my wedding, was how absolutely natural, beautiful, and creative all of his photos were. I was not interested in working with a photographer who would put my husband and I and our wedding party in awkward, forced poses. What I did not anticipate or expect when hiring David, was to add a fun, cool, laid back guy who actually added to our wedding day, just with his presence. David made me feel confident and at ease in all photos – I never felt awkward or unsure, because I trusted his talent and his personality made the whole day feel relaxed and fun. David truly cares about the couples who choose him to be a part of their day and that exudes from him prior to your wedding, on your wedding day, and after. My best choice was choosing to marry my husband, my second best choice was choosing David to capture our day – in him, we have found a photographer and friend, for life.

Cara was awesome!! She was very organized beforehand and during the wedding. I didn't need to feel stressed about getting everybody together, because she did this for me. She was really great with making a timeline and keeping the timeline moving during the day of the wedding. She was even willing to stay for longer than we originally asked of her so we could get some extra solo shots with the sunset. The few pictures that we have received so far are beautiful! When I saw the photo I have attached I said to myself "There is no way this is MY wedding photo! It looks like a fairytale! And it really IS mine!" I was blown away. And we will be hanging this picture up in our house for sure!!

There is nothing better than a photographer who 1.) understands what you need as a bride and 2.) is willing to do whatever it takes to see that you get more than you could dream of. Melyssa was my photographer, but she also helped me plan, make decisions, and even vetted questions for me in the moments I needed it the most. She had all the knowledge and experience to help me figure out what kinds of photos I wanted and made sure I got them. I felt so comfortable asking for what I wanted and I didn’t have to just go off of a standard “this is what you get” list. She made it feel like my best friend was just following me around with a camera on my wedding day. Could not be more pleased with her work! And I’m so thankful for her artistic eye.

We met Don at a memorial service in downtown Franklin, NC during the "Airing of the Quilts" festival in May of 2013. He immediately was very friendly and professional when asked to photograph our children who were performing at the festival. He was prompt in sending beautiful prints of the event. Also he was generous with our usage of the photos and presented us with a top- notch keepsake album.

      About

      I have my own "style" that I never compare to other photographers. I feel people book me because of my style and I never compromise "me". I love watching love stories and being a huge part of that day. The pictures will last forever and I do everything I can to make sure the get the best "memory" possible. I love "candid" moments with weddings, and family shoots. It's all about capturing the love.

      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.
