If it were possible to give a perfect 10 star review, I would give it to Doug. He was friendly, flexible, fun and very affirming. I am a minister and Wedding Officiant (I Wed You, LLC) and wanted some professional headshots. Due to my busy schedule I had to change my appointment a few times and Doug kindly accommodated my requests. His positive manner made the photo-shoot process fun and his fee was reasonable. I am a wedding professional Thumbtack vendor so when I needed a professional photographer I turned to Thumbtack and found Doug Sanford. I was very pleased with the photos he took and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him. Thanks Doug and thanks Thumbtack!

My husband and I had a small wedding organized on short notice. When our friends saw the wedding album, they did not only compliment us on the event itself, but also on the quality of our pictures! Bill had to work in many different settings, whether it was indoors for the ceremony itself, outdoors for photos in the park, or inside the restaurant during the evening celebration. All of our photos look amazing and the colors are true even in tough lighting scenes. My husband was so impressed by the professional look on some of his shots he (not so) jokingly said he would use one of the pictures as his LinkedIn profile picture.

Party Favor Photo was so much fun to have at our wedding reception! They were punctual and set everything up with no issues at all. They were completely professional and very easy to communicate with in the days leading up to our wedding, and they had all of our digital photos available for viewing the day after the event, which was faster than I expected! Our guests loved having both the photobooth prints and the digital versions available for viewing, and the pictures turned out really well. One thing I appreciated beyond words is that the photobooth attendant flagged my husband and I down at the end of the night, right after our send-off, and told us that we should do a quick shoot in the photobooth since we hadn't had a chance to do so over the course of the very busy and hectic night. That was so sweet and thoughtful, and we both appreciated her thinking of that for us. I had no complaints and wouldn't hesitate to use them again, or recommend them!

Greg was a wonderful photographer for my wedding reception. Not only was he on time, professional and responsive in the time leading up to the event, but the photos I received at the end of the project were top notch and EXACTLY what I had hoped for. He captured many moments I wouldn't have otherwise had. I'd absolutely recommend him for any event and would gladly hire him again.

Josh is an amazing artist, professional, and overall person! He is amazing at what he does and I could not have been happier with having him as my wedding photographer. He is so easy to talk to and so easy to work with. From the moment I talked to him on the phone I knew he was the one I wanted for my big day! I cannot express how great the photos turned out and for such an amazing price. He is my go to photographer for any future events!

Five stars are not enough. In four simple words, Laurie saved our wedding. When our photographer cancelled with less than a week before our wedding, I sought out to find a replacement on Thumbtack who could not only do it last minute but for our budget. After sifting through many talented photographers on this site who bid on the job (and several who could not do the job but were willing to help me find one), we selected Laurie. The reasons are many. First, she was incredibly responsive to our needs during the negotiation phase, jumping on the phone with us right away to discuss our style, needs, and hopes for our photography. As a former photojournalist, she understood our desire for the photography to capture those great candid moments that evoke the spirit of the moment. She was a pleasure to work with during the day of, quickly working with us, our massive families, and the cold to get all the photos we needed. She was always there to get that perfect shot, yet not intrusive at all. She quickly turned around the photos and within a month we got extraordinary photos that even a month later we can't stop looking at. It was like reliving the wedding all over again. There is simply no better choice than Laurie.

Chris is most professional and creative. His work is outstanding, excellent and unique. He did my daughter's senior portraits outdoors and included candid shots that are my favorite even now 4 years later. He then took photos of my children outside in beautiful historic scenery. I also have his photo of a lighthouse hanging in my living room. My daughter and fiancé have now hired him to take their wedding photos. It will be a day to remember and I know we can trust Chris to bring those memories to life in pictures. He is 'c'est magnifique!' Chris you are just the best out there!

Our photographer was amazing! I highly recommend this company - they are super flexible and have good deals. Our photographers for the wedding did an amazing job - they were attentive and responsive as well as accommodating. Sheila was truly amazing from the moment she walked in the door she was all business. Tony took the guys and got them looking good with some awesome shots while Sheila stayed with me and the girls. I would use them for everything in the future as well. They are Highly Recommended by ME and my family. I love this Photography Team

Elmo is exceptional at capturing unique, special and genuine candid moments. He patiently worked with us on our outdoor wedding day on an extremely chilly and windy day. We needed pictures taken in a few settings that involved tricky lighting, included two kids and some were taken in our apartment which is very small. All of our wedding pictures turned out so incredible and are exactly as we would have liked--not super staged and stiff but instead reflected our personalities and the love we share for one another. Elmo went way above and beyond what we even imagined and we are so thrilled with our wedding photos. Elmo also has such a calm demeanor and I would imagine for bigger groups, he would be so skilled at getting people to work together to get the perfect pictures.

Title: Awesome Wedding Photographer Julie captured every amazing moment of my wedding. She made everyone feel at ease, making for the best candid and posed moments. She took a tight space and made it work with a creative thought process. She even got my rowdy wedding party to take direction for the best photos. She was on time, fun, efficient and super creative. Highly recommended!

I could not have asked for a better photographer for my wedding. Not only is she an amazing photographer but she's the biggest sweetheart I've ever met. EVERYONE at my wedding loved Priscilla and the group she brought. I want to have another event where I need a photographer just so I can hire her again!! I don't even know what else to say because my experience was beyond perfect. I encourage everyone to use Priscilla with absolutely no hesitation.

We used Metin / Picaboost Photography for my sister's wedding. From the initial contact and throughout the entire, Metin was very responsive. He answered any questions we had right away and even had a phone call with us to talk details before signing a contract. Since we had to push up the wedding, time was crucial and Metin was quick to respond so that was very helpful! We sent Metin a video shot list and he captured everything we asked of him. He arrived early the day of the wedding and was very kind and professional. We only requested raw footage and the footage he sent was great! He cut the footage down so it would not be overwhelming but he still had all of the important parts of the day. We would highly request Metin and Picaboost Photography!

I'm so happy I picked Naomi as my wedding photographer. From our first conversation, to her thorough planning questionnaire, to the coverage of the wedding and finally to her follow up on the photos. She was helpful, thoughtful and organized. She and her assistant shooter got great shots and placed themselves strategically at the wedding to get amazing candid shots. I would definitely recommend her to anyone planning their wedding.

Rachel is a real pro - if you are looking for beautiful, real, crisp, clear portraits, engagement and wedding photos, family photos - anything - look no further. Rachel instantly made me feel at ease in front of the camera and knew exactly how to guide my fiance and I to capture authentic and natural photos. She is brilliant at using natural light, too. We could not be happier!

Kari did an absolutely wonderful job at our wedding. I sought her out because she photographed my sister's salon, and was blown away by her prices, which were cheap for the area! But the quality was top notch! It took a bit to get the photos in the end, but it was WELL worth the wait. Kari managed to capture the beauty, excitement, and joy of my wedding. I would definitely recommend her to anyone in the area.

sjsFoto was a miracle worker with editing photos from my brother’s wedding! We had a family photo that was beautiful, but missing my father. SjsFoto took a photo of my father from the same event and added him into the family photo. The quality was amazing and you’d never know the photo was edited. We now have a beautiful photo to display.

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.
