I found Doug on Thumbtack and was pleased to have him photograph my wedding this past October. First, I was so pleased to meet him before hand and see more of his work so I knew what to expect. But more than that, I realized that Doug is an exciting, interesting, and cheerful person which made the experience even better. He has an artistic eye and really made some beautiful memories that made me excited to have him shoot my big day! During the day, Doug captured fantastic moments and was flexible when we wanted him to get a specific person or time. He was over all energetic and cheerful! I had a few friends that are amateur photographers also take pictures for us and Doug took the time to answer some of their photography questions and giving them tips - going above and beyond his call... Finally, my pictures came out beautiful and in a timely manner. I can't thank him enough for capturing our day and producing this precious keepsake!

Joshua is one of the best photographers I've ever met. From the beginning of my search for a photographer, Joshua's work and professionalism stood out among the others. While I needed headshots, I also wanted something different, something other than the generic canned ones we've all grown accustomed to seeing. I wanted something casual and spontaneous but certainly not a selfie. As soon as I saw Joshua's portfolio, I knew he was the right one for me. This conviction was confirmed even before I met him in person. Joshua was forthright and proactive in laying out the logistics of what to expect in advance of our appointment. The day of the shoot, he arrived ahead of schedule and allowed enough time to talk with me about his style, his work, and listen to what I wanted and expected. Once the camera started rolling, he made me feel comfortable and at ease and gave me step by step directions of where he wanted me, and what he wanted me to do. I didn't feel like I was posing but stood and acted like I normally do. This gives a much more natural, effective, and stand-out photograph, and I am very pleased with the results. Joshua is friendly, personable, highly skilled at his trade, and very conscientious. He's a consummate professional and has very reasonable rates. I highly recommend Joshua and encourage you to take the time to familiarize yourself with his work. Next time you need a photographer, you now know who to call.

I met Laurie at a showcase of photographers and instantly saw her work was the style I was looking for to capture our wedding. After chatting a few minutes, I knew I wanted to work with her. My husband-to-be was not a fan of having his picture taken. I knew this was going to make the day challenging, but Laurie was a true professional. She was able to get great shots of us without a lot of fussing. It was important to us that she not be intrusive and allowed us to enjoy our wedding and reception while still capturing our memories. She understood what we were looking for and delivered perfectly. I was impressed when Laurie first arrived that she quickly scouted the property for the best locations to shoot. She arrived early enough so this did not take away from the time we had for pictures. Laurie was friendly, professional, and blended very nicely with the group. Our pictures tell a great story of a beautiful day, thanks to Laurie's vision.

Great experience working with Gethro. He was one of the few photographers in the area who could provide printed photos on the spot (with our company logo, no less) and we were very happy with his work.

Pictures were lovely. Great professional job by a friendly guy with a great attitude. I picked Two Jakes after viewing the work of several event photographers. He got them to us in no time, so we could use them in our media posts and marketing. I am so glad I did. I would use Two Jakes again. They were great.

Zach Miller was hired as an event photographer for a recent performance where I performed with my jazz band at the Kennedy Center as part of the DC Jazz Festival. The job was one hour. Had spoke to Zach several days before the event due to the restrictions on Photography at the Kennedy Center. Zach was on time and very professional. When I received the finish photos the quality of his work was good. Though Zach was limited on where he could shoot from, the only thing I would have improved would have been the number of close up shots. He shot a range of great long (wide) shots of the band but I would have preferred an equal number of shots at a closer range with a zoom lens where he could have captured more of the emotion of the faces of me and the band members during the performance.

I hired Leslie to do a photo shoot of a company meeting I was hosting in Washington DC. Leslie was great. She was very easy to communicate with in advance - I was coming to an event from out of town and she made it really easy to work with her. She captured great moments and photos turn out really well. She also does a same day delivery of key shots and then had 100s of the event photos edited and ready for me within a week! I recommend Leslie for event photography and will use her if my company is in DC area again.

Justin and I started a conversation a little over a week ago. I was looking for a photographer who would be able to take us some couples photos for the holiday season. From the very start, Justin was punctual and he continued to be punctual through to the delivery of the photos. Often times when people hire photographers, people complain that photographers lose momentum once they’ve been offered the gig or once they’ve received payment. This is absolutely not the case with Justin. Justin’s punctuality definitely has been a plus point all the way. I also appreciated that Justin works with clients across varying price points. In addition, I must say Justin’s offer was definitely reasonable given that we’re situated in the DMV. Interacting with Justin, one of the first things I let him know was that I just wanted a quick photo shoot that would be a leg up from our usual selfies. Justin understood exactly what I was expecting out of our photo shoot. Justin and I worked out the details over text, and the photo shoot was quick and effortless. Though I didn’t end up calling him myself, I did pass on Justin’s phone number to a few colleagues of mine - he had such a great offer that I had to share with others! On that note, if you need to hop on the phone to talk details, just ask for his phone number. I am absolutely all about Pinterest and all things Pinterest related. I had ideas of poses but when we met up, my mind sort of went blank (I blame the cold!) and Justin had great ideas which resulted in some beautiful photos of the two of us. I also have to praise Justin’s understanding of space, lighting, and photography concept. Justin took a handful of posed and candid photos, which we both appreciated. Not only is Justin talented, but he is easygoing too. And that’s definitely a plus point when hiring a photographer. If you can’t be yourself around your photographer or if the photographer can’t get you to feel relaxed and at east, then you might as well throw in the towel because you won’t get quality photos. Thank you, Justin, we love love love our photos!! PS: Hire Justin. If my photos are any testament, I’m sure you too will be more than satisfied with yours!

We used Dawn Elliott, owner of Snapngiggle Photography, for our recent wedding, and we were absolutely thrilled with every aspect of our experience! Dawn is a class-act, not to mention an extremely warm and caring person who is clearly passionate about what she does and that passion shines through from the first time you meet her. In our case, all of of these traits helped to make everyone that much more comfortable taking photos, which on what can naturally be a very stressful day, was very welcomed, especially for this nervous bride! We were also highly impressed with how well Dawn captured our family's spirit in all of our photos and are grateful for the time and attention she clearly took making sure to capture all of the day's special moments and touches. She did not miss a thing! Dawn's finished work was excellent as well, and again, we simply could not have asked for anything more. We would recommend Dawn without reservation to anyone looking for a photographer for an event. Not only will you be getting a wonderful photographer, but you will also be getting a reliable, trustworthy person! We highly recommend giving Dawn at Snapngiggle your business!

We hired Lizzy to help us take pictures for my father's 90th birthday. We did a lot of family portraits and singles. We also used Lizzy to take pictures of the event. Lizzy was sweet and very professional. She suggested many ideas during the picture taking process. She was very patient with my father who moved slowly. Thanks Lizzy you were great.

Victoria and her partner are very helpful and amazing photographers! They were on time for our occasion, and she helped us reserve a place to take the pictures. They were very relaxed and professional during the day, always respecting our perspective. And the photos were also amazing, I think what she offers is a great price-performance quality. Thanks Victoria again :)

Kaye was awesome! From tailoring her style to fit my needs to getting me the final product in a timely fashion, Kaye was everything I needed in an engagement photographer and more. She was extremely responsive to my goals and what I expected in regards to photos of my surprise engagement. I would highly recommend Kaye to anyone in the Baltimore area who is looking for someone to capture that special moment.

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.
