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.

Sandy was a pleasure to work with and gave us superb photos. She was willing to go out of her way to ensure that we were completely satisfied with the photographs of our home; which we certainly were. Sandy knew the exact angles and rooms to photograph. She was a delight and we would recommend her to anyone looking for a top notch photographer. Thanks Sandy!

Words can't explain how happy I am Brandi and Mark were our videographers for our June 2013 wedding .They did an ABSOLUTE fantastic job to get any all shots and were so easy to work with. They helped recommend great places for first look and photographs, it was perfect they both really have an eye and talent for what they do. I didn't even know they were there half the time but when I got the video back it was MORE THAN clear they didn't miss a single shot or event throughout the day! I honestly couldn't be more impressed and in awe with our wedding video and products, it's more than we could imagine! I always thought of wedding videos of being like the VHS tapes of my parents wedding, slow and boring, but WOW was I proven wrong and more than happy with Brandi's work and how the video was made and UNBORING it was. There are so many shots throughout the day that, as the bride, you don't get to see. Brandi captured that all and let my husband and I relive our wedding day and we couldn't be more pleased! I highly recommend.

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!

Ashley & Kristen were absolutely wonderful to work with! My husband and I are not photogenic people (and because of that, we really don't enjoy having professional pictures done), but not only did we enjoy our wedding photography experience, Ashley also managed to make us look fabulous! We had a huge wedding party, 25 people total, and Ashley managed to wrangle all of us with no problems. I would highly recommend using Images Photography to anyone!

Mr. Phelps photographed my recital at the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music. It was a 1 hour session. Donald was very professional, on time for the session and I was allowed access to my photos within 48 hours. I was very pleased with the quality of Donald's work and he will now be my go to photographer for work with my band. I will recommend him to other musicians as well.

It is an absolute joy working with Paul, in fact, after using Paul as our photographer for our wedding nearly 11 years ago he has been our family photographer since. He now photographs our family. He is very professional but also easy-going and fun to be around-making a photo shoot an absolute breeze. Needless to say his photos are amazing-absolutely beautiful and his prints, collages and other products are of excellent quality! I'm always looking forward to our next photo shoot!

Casey is wonderful! She was very attentive to our wants and needs and exceeded all of our expectations. She was very flexible with scheduling our engagement session and communicated with us along the way. You won't find a more professional, fun-spirited, or skilled photographer! I highly recommend Casey and can't wait to use her services again for our wedding photography.

Chris always answered emails/ texts super fast! He has a great personality, very outgoing, and he does a great job at corralling everyone together for pictures. We got our pictures back 1 week later, just as he said we would. They turned out fantastic. There was not a single moment during the whole day where he wasn’t taking a picture or thinking of new photo ideas. He really maximized his time. We are so happy we went with Lowry Photo. Not to mention, we love our wedding video! We couldn’t be more happy!

Where do I begin?! Mariah first did my senior pictures in 2012. I absolutely loved the way they turned out! I got many compliments on the quality of the photography. Mariah was very flexible and I was able to do several outfits and a couple different locations. So of course when it came time for me to find a wedding photographer I had to ask Mariah. Our special day was captured so beautifully. Mariah was there from the time we started getting ready to the time we left our reception. She captured so many special moments as well as detail shots of my dress, the cake, decorations, and literally everything. I would recommend Mariah to anyone! :)

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.

Brianna photographed my last August wedding and we could not have asked for a more personable, outgoing and professional photographer. Brianna took her time researching photo ideas as well as having my husband and I come up with a list of "MUST TAKE" photos, and Brianna did not miss a single one. She captured our personalities in every picture and was social with our guests and captured so many candid pictures of them that otherwise, my husband and I would have never seen. Brianna is detailed oriented and her bubbly personality makes her so fun to work with! I will always use Brianna for all of my future family pictures!

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.
