I have nothing but outstanding things to say about April! Photography was the one aspect of our engagement and wedding that was most important to us. We had a very tight budget so we searched long and hard to find a talented photographer who was also competitively priced. We found that and more in April. We knew we wanted to book her the second we met her. She is the perfect blend of spunky, silly, artsy, and professional. She walked us through her creative process in our first meeting which was incredibly helpful because both of us were photo-simple. She was unbelievably receptive to our ideas and even excited to include our puppy in our engagement shoot. On the day of our engagement pictures, she was very hands on with regard to posing, fixing our hair, and making sure our clothes were in place. Yet, also simultaneously eager to photograph poses that were important to us. Some photographers are disengaged and you have to do all the posing yourself (which would have been disastrous for us), while others are too controlling and unwilling to deviate from their own vision (which would have been way less fun). Half of our engagement pictures are us laughing at each other, and the other half are us laughing at April. We had so much fun taking pictures and they turned out absolutely perfect! I have friends who spent upwards of $6,000 on wedding photography and we have been told by them that they think E and I's pictures are higher quality. Another thing we like about April is her hands-on approach. She is meeting with us a few months prior to our wedding to talk through our family dynamics and make a detailed schedule for the day. She has talked us through her method for getting families, wedding parties, etc. through the process in an efficient manner and we could not be more thankful for that! Hiring April was the best decision we've made with regard to our wedding. We love her, our pictures are incredible, and we could not say enough wonderful things about her!

K.P Expressions Photography shot my husband's homecoming from Afghanistan. She did a wonderful job and captured the moment perfectly. Kim also edited the pictures and got me the final product quickly. It was an awesome experience to be able to have her as our photographer and can not wait for her to shoot our wedding in June!

Mr. Vinh is an amazing photographer. He is very professional, creative, enthusiastic and passionate about his work. I couldn't have asked for a better photographer to take my Graduation and Wedding pictures! He was very patient in making sure I was comfortable and ensured that the perfect photo was captured. Overall, he made the whole experience enjoyable and he was a joy to work with! I would highly recommend his services to anyone seeking a photographer who truly captures moments that last forever!

When dreaming of wedding planning and upon becoming engaged, a couple is thrust into a significant decision-making process. When it came to our wedding, very few decisions were more important to us than the place which we chose to take our vows and whom we trusted to capture and document one of the most emotional and memorable days of our lives. When considering wedding photography, we knew that we wanted to capture our wedding day for personal memories, but also as art that we would come to cherish more and more with each passing day. As a bride, my ultimate goal was to develop a relationship with a photography artist that shared my same vision and appreciation for elegance, classic romanticism, brilliance in lighting, sensational color, whimsical/ethereal ambiance and overall refined composition with impeccable professionalism. Choosing Emily Fuselier Photography for our wedding was the best decision we made, and was only confirmed when we found our beautiful engagement photographs published in a nationally recognized wedding blog, Le Magnifique!   Because of Emily's and her husband Euric's professional and artistic talents, we had the utmost confidence that our wedding memories were in trusted hands. Words cannot express how reassuring it was for us to rest confidently on our wedding day knowing that our investment in wedding photography was professionally cared for, and all details attended to. Thank you sincerely to Emily and Euric; our gratitude for your professionalism and our appreciation for your excellence and talent cannot be expressed enough. Thank you sincerely for capturing the priceless moments and for the gift of art, which captures all of the love and emotion of our wedding day, as well as our spectacular engagement photographs. Our Sincerest Gratitude, Kyle & Jessie Lee

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.
