A friend who was supposed to photograph our upcoming Halloween bagged out on me the week before, and I began a panicky search on the web to determine my chances on finding a good, reasonably priced photographer at such short notice. I stumbled upon this amazing site, and literally within 8 minutes I had my first quote from Mark Wilson. I received 5 other quotes shortly after, but Mark's quick response, great reviews and fair price point won me over. He is a super nice guy, too. :) The photographs were for our "Dead or Alive on the Red Carpet"-themed Halloween party and they came out SO perfect!! I would hire Mark again in a heartbeat for any other photography projects I may have in the future.

To preface, I have significant experience in graphic design, photo editing and DSLR photography. Where does one such as my self go to get my photos taken? Ivan Djikaev. I don't find my impressed with the quality, composition and quality of photos that a lot of "professional" photographers these days tend to produce, but as a hobbyist photographer myself and someone who prides himself on his eye for detail, I can say with certainty that Ivan is on another level. The man is not only very talented, but accommodating and flexible. His quality of work speaks for itself, the end product is worth every penny, and I look forward to working with him again in the future!

Very few event photographers in my experience have manages to be everywhere yet unobtrusive. Many of the guests commented to me on his professionalism and his pleasant demeanor. Do hire Frank. You won't be disappointed.

Jeremiah was a pleasure to work with from our very first contact by email. I researched photographers available to photograph our 40th wedding anniversary vow renewal extensively. I loved the work in his portfolio and the finished product lived up to all of my expectations. We were a small group of 9 people but wanted every minute of our celebration photographed. Jeremiah was present for the entire 6 hour celebration and just melted into our small family group. At the same time, he was very professional and we often forgot he was there taking photos of everything. I would hire him again in a heartbeat!

My company and I have had the pleasure of working with David on two events. Both times he exceeded our expectations; this, based off of our experience with previous photographers. David's level of professionalism is reflected through his presence when shooting an event, and in the final product. With this in mind, David Bruno is a fantastic event photographer. He delivers magazine-ready images, that in our case, wind up making it to print. And, ultimately, he has helped us create a portfolio of beautiful, head-on + candid images, that showcase everything our company is made of. For this, we are infinitely grateful.

Kristen did an amazing job on 1 year anniversary photos for me. The location she picked was beautiful, the perfect backdrop for some absolutely stunning photos. She took so many pictures and I can't say enough how happy I am with them. I would recommend Kristen Leclair photography to anyone I know. If you want great pictures and photographer that makes the experience relaxed and fun , choose Kristen Leclair Photography.

My husband Aaron and I found Jim on Thumbtack.com while looking for photographers for our wedding. Aaron and I had already spent hours over the past weekends looking at photographer websites. We weren't excited about any of them until we stumbled upon Jim. It was the first time we were both enthusiastic about any of the photographers we had found online. We immediately decided to contact Jim. He gave us a great quote for the wedding photography, and it included a special engagement shoot to get to know each other and get some shots taken before the big day. Jim was so flexible in helping us find a place to hold the engagement shoot. We ultimately decided to meet in Portsmouth for a sunset brewery tour and photo shoot. It was amazing! We had such a great time at the shoot, and Jim was so personable. He made what many would consider a stressful occasion such a fun experience. He did a great job at balancing the brewery stops with getting the important shots taken. After the engagement shoot, we were even more confident that we had chosen the right guy for the job. And even more so when he sent the edited photos only a week or so after the shoot. Fast forward to the week of the wedding. Jim was extremely proactive in making sure everything was set for the big day. We were so excited when he told us that he would have a second shooter helping him at the wedding. At the wedding, Jim made sure we captured all of the moments that we hoped for, and so many special moments that we never would have thought of ourselves. He made sure to send us a sampling of the night while we were on our honeymoon, and then delivered the complete set of photos only a few weeks later. It is an understatement to say how happy we were with the photos!! Finally, Jim's website is very convenient to use, and we are able to access and download our photos anytime, in single and bulk downloads. The images are high quality, high resolution jpegs that are large enough that you don't have to worry about pixelation when printing large photos for your friends and family. I can't think of anything else to add except that Jim is amazing and he will take great care in documenting your special day!

With Chuck Nacke, you will experience a true professional from your first contact through the completion of your photos. Most importantly, you will find that he is a superb photographer, lighting carefully and well, and ensuring that you have numerous excellent photos among which to choose your portrait. I cannot say enough about my experience with Chuck. If he costs a bit more than the other photographers, do not hesitate, his product is well worth it. For a few more details about the experience, Chuck came to my home, set up his gear and backdrops, and allowed me several wardrobe changes. We also did some shots outside and with my puppy Gretel. So besides checking that professional box, I have a wonderful shot of me and my dog that I will treasure for the rest of my life. Oh, and the icing on the cake is that Chuck is a fascinating guy with fantastic life stories. You will feel like a mini-celebrity and really enjoy your time with him.

Christian and his second shooter were nothing but professional and fun to work with. He had great ideas, was more than willing to work with our ideas and our families’ requests for photos, and was always just super excited to be there! He was very responsive beforehand, extremely affordable, and always answered any emails and questions that I had. The initial sneak peak shots he gave us are GORGEOUS and I can’t wait to see the rest! I would highly recommend working with Christian! Thank you for making our day so memorable and allowing us to preserve it so beautifully!

“Talented photographers” are very hard to find, especially when needed to capture moments of honest love. My fiance and I had the greatest pleasure of working with Mark during our shoot. What got to me, the future bride to-be, was how passionate and patient he was. I had my sister there, who was a huge comfort for me because she, herself, is a professional model who has been in the spotlight thousands of times, and he did not let that trouble him. He found that rather amusing and made the time more enjoyable. How his certain suggestions for certain things made the photos appear more natural and raw. We had the chance to know each other a little bit more and I shared to him that we had just built our first home together this past May 2017. He then insisted we switched the location of the photoshoot to the new house. Now, the photos have more value knowing that the background of the images, is our home. Let’s not forget how funny his guy is either! How 2 ½ hours went by so effortlessly because we all were just having so much fun! He’s skillful. He’s sharp. He’s humorous. He is someone that we definitely hire for any other occasions.

Tony was great to work with! We had a small wedding with close friends and family at Boston City Hall, followed by a luncheon after. He helped plan things out in advance, showed up early, had great ideas for photos, and was low-key and relaxing to shoot with. He was also very respectful of us wanting privacy because of an unusual situation, and agreed not to include us in online portfolios. We considered several photographers, and are really glad we went with Tony. I'd definitely recommend him, and we'd certainly work with him again if we have occasion to. Thanks!

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.
