He took a lot of pictures and had a lot of patience. I would highly recommend. Thanks so much John for making that process of my wedding so enjoyable.

I highly recommend Eston Photography! Mike is professional and hard working and an amazing photographer. We needed an event photographer for our small non-profit's Gala fundraiser on a very small budget. Mike was fairly priced, he showed up early and was an incredible photographer throughout the entire event. We are thrilled with the final product: beautifully edited photos that we received less than 2 days after the event! Such a fast turn around and an amazing product. I'm looking forward to hiring Mike again for future projects, and I highly recommend you do the same!

This man is a genius! He's got it going on. I've worked with many photographers but this one is a keeper. He sets up a crew to make your shoot as perfect as possible. First he sits down with you to get a good idea of what you want. He has photo aids, talks about poses, and creates a shot list so your time can be used in the best possible way. The day of the shoot was great. The time was spent well, he helped me get the best possible poses (even though they felt strange) and got the lighting just right. The photos came out gorgeous. I'm picky so I had to make some personal adjustments and Noel was happy to help. He is my forever photographer and if you get to shoot with him, you are very fortunate.

Was in New Orleans for vacation with my girlfriend and was planning to propose while there. I was looking for a photographer to capture the moment and I knew it was going to be difficult to try to meet somewhere I had never been, especially since we had a very undetermined schedule. I contacted Nick the night before and he was very helpful with planning when and where! I can’t believe how flexible he was! I told him I wasn’t sure what time of day it would happen, and he just said he’d be able to meet at our decided spot within 15-20 minutes of me telling him. He made the experience so easy and stressful-free! Would definitely recommend to anyone!

Thanks for being so patient with us at our wedding. I'm so glad you were so understanding and willing to work with us since we had to start late (which was my fault). I LOVED our gallery and I'm happy we chose you to be our photographer!! You kept me sane!!

I have had nothing but great experiences with TRStudios.The photographer Tyesha is great at what she does. I have had about 3 photoshoot with her and each one was amazing.I am very camera shy and she made me laugh and feel very comfortable and her prices are very reasonable especially for her quality of work.She handles business in a professional manner, just overall great. I would defiantly recommend her to anyone.

Janeen Bourgeois is a wonderful photographer. I used her services for an individual photo session, and truly had a great experience. She is easy to work with and really knows how to make a photo session fun and relaxing while still keeping it professional. The turnover for receiving the photos after the session is fast and her work is quality. She really has a knack for showcasing the personality of her subjects. I would definitely use Janeen as a photographer in the future both for personal sessions or events. Trust me, you won't be disappointed!

I’ve never hired a photographer before, and Tia was helpful in answering all of my questions. I live in New York and having someone who knew the turf in New Orleans meant a lot to me since I wanted our shoot to be representative of our engagement and my love for NOLA. Tia was so understanding! As we headed to meet her, an impromptu parade popped up and we sat in an uber for half hour trying to get to her. I was sure that the shoot wouldn’t happen, but she kept in touch with me and waited for us— we were essentially an hour late! I was beside myself in a crappy mood, with no desire to take lovey photos but her positive demeanor and genuine interest in our story truly made me feel at ease and lifted my spirits— never mind that the gal took so much more time away from her own schedule to photograph us. We moved through the French quarter fairly quickly, taking snaps by colorful walls and doors and with some backdrop of classic New Orleans. Many of the photos are closeups of us laughing hard and some have that New Orleans charm that I really desired. We got our photos promptly and were able to review them and share them. I would recommend Tia for any and all of your photography needs. She’s so cool and so badass, we left NOLA feeling like we made a new friend.

Shaq is such a wonderful photographer. During our photo shoots (more than 1 because he’s that good!), his professionalism made me feel comfortable. Never once did I doubt his skills and once I saw the pictures, he did not disappoint. Thank you for your patience, your kindness and willingness to shoot all the beauty around you. You’re amazing!

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.
