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.

What pictures should be taken at a wedding?

On your wedding day, your photographer should take pictures of the couple getting ready for the wedding, as well as a fun personality picture before activities begin. They should also photograph showstoppers like the bouquet, invitations, shoes, reception space, cake, centerpieces, rings and the veil. A generational photo with parents or grandparents is also special. There should also be photos of the bride and groom alone, the ceremony, the confetti-filled exit, and hair and makeup.

When should you take wedding photos?

Couples can take wedding photos before their actual ceremony, during cocktail hour (before the reception), during the wedding reception or even after their wedding. The least stressful time to do it is often before the ceremony when hair and makeup generally look their best, temperatures are usually lower because it’s earlier in the day and the couple won’t have to think or worry about it for the rest of the day.

How many photos should you get from a wedding photographer?

A professional wedding photographer will usually supply their clients with several hundred photos (200, 300, 400 or 800 and more). Some might even provide more than 1,000 photos. It ultimately depends on the photographer.

Wedding photographers will usually take several thousand photos but cut them down to the keepers. They also have to edit these photos. Typically, they will provide them to the clients on a digital hard drive, as an online download or even in a photo album with beautiful decorations.

How long do wedding photographers stay?

A wedding photographer usually expects to work a full day. This gives them time to photograph the venue, cake, rings, shoes, centerpieces, invitations and other aspects of the wedding before the guests arrive. It also allows them time to get photos of the bride and groom alone, as well as the hair and makeup process and fun personality pictures. Then, they will work through all the parts of the wedding.

Do photographers offer remote or virtual services?

Photography happens in person, but photographers may be able to offer other remote services safely during the COVID-19 pandemic. For example, they may be able to offer editing and other post-processing services. 

If you see that a photographer is offering remote services in their profile, contact them and ask what those services include.

From the beginning of planning our wedding, we knew we wanted Daniel as our photographer based on the quality of his portfolio alone. After speaking to him and working with him on our wedding, I knew his personality and work flow were a perfect match for us. Daniel made it so we could fully enjoy our wedding. I was mingling and laughing with guests, instead of being posed for a million photos. He was unobtrusive, funny, and a protector of the bride and groom's time. While we were being pulled in a million directions, Daniel's style of photography meant that the focus of the pictures were on the newlyweds and guests having a good time. Even the posed photos were amazing and done with incredible efficiency. If you hire Daniel for a wedding, do not go with a 'vision' of what perfect wedding pictures will be. Most likely they've already been done before, and won't turn out like you expected anyway. Use Daniel's expertise and allow yourself to enjoy your own wedding. Highly recommended. Thanks, Daniel.

Alex was our photographer for our engagement shoot and wedding, and she knocked it out of the park! It was an absolute delight working with her, and we couldn’t be happier with the photos. She truly is an artist, and the quality of her work sets her apart. Fantastic value for top notch photography. We will definitely use her in the future for other events and occasions! Highly recommended.

Keith is exceptional and his photography was absolute magic! Our communication was super smooth. He was always responsive, flexible, patient, and willing to listen to our requests. He arrived early for our appointment and took really, really beautiful photos. Keith was very good at capturing special and intimate moments, and our group photos (with 20+) guests looked great! My partner and I were pleased about the turnout. I would highly recommend Keith for event/wedding photo shoots!

Amazing photographer with great professionalism. He was very easy to work with, and made the day go smoothly with a calm demeanor. He took amazing shots for our wedding and everyone has been complimenting his ability to catch emotion and his photo quality. I definitely plan on using him again and referring to friends.

I had booked Olivia for our wedding. She was professional, and easy to talk to, responsive about any requests about schedule changes and multiple venues. The photos turned out really amazing. The only thing I would say is that the people mentioned in the pre-event survey should've been included more- like having one on one photos with each of my parents and grandparents was importent to me, but there was so much else happening during the event, that I couldn't actively direct photos. In the end, I still have really amazing quality photos to remember the day by.

I can’t say enough good things about him! He was highly responsive, punctual, friendly, our photos turned out beautifully and he was very accommodating!!! Don’t hesitate! Hire him! We had our photographer cancel on us less than a week before our wedding and he was able to accommodate us with such short notice. Very glad we chose him!

I can't say enough about how pleased we are with Jamaal's work! He was kind, personable, and easy to work with. The photos he took are STUNNING. They are just simply amazing. We had a small intimate wedding and he was just perfect through every step. He has an eye for putting together an amazing photo. I HIGHLY recommend hiring Jamaal to capture your special moment.

My fiance and I had the pleasure of working with Demetric to have our engagement photos taken. His down to earth demeanor and personality instantly relaxed us and we had a blast. He has an incredible eye and is very creative. We never once felt super posed or awkward. He was able to capture us interacting naturally which is exactly what I wanted. I cant wait to see our pictures and am so grateful that I have him to capture our wedding day. If you are looking for a photographer to bring out the best in you (both in person and in pictures) it really doesn't get any better than Demetric!

Mark was absolutely incredible for my wedding. Every single picture (and there were so many!) were beautiful and captured our day perfectly. He was so kind and understanding, given that we had a lot of last-minute changes that were out of our control. He was patient and fun, always professional, and made me feel completely at home and just went with the flow of whatever we threw at him. I can't rave enough about him – if you need a photographer for anything, he's your man! His team was stellar as well, although as the bride I worked mostly with Mark. The pictures are gorgeous, and I'm so grateful that we got to work with him for our special day.
