We love Tanya! She has done several portraits for us including family, individual kids, and special events. We have many more lined up with her including maternity, birth photography, and another special event. Tanya listens to what I'm looking for and captures everything I ask for. She is also very patient as we are a very large family and need lots of breaks. So glad to have her as our family's photographer from here on out to capture those special moments I our lives.

My fiancé and I didn't think we needed a videographer for our wedding, but with barely a week to go before our big day, we knew we had made a huge mistake not hiring a film artist, knowing that it was unlikely we'd be able to find someone that met our criteria, budget, and who was also available with such short notice. We found Peter through Thumbtack and he reached out to us in less than 10 minutes. We had a conference call with him that same evening and he made the process stress-free and simple. He showed up to our venue early, stayed late, and worked seamlessly and professionally with our photographer. As promised, he had five shorts ready for us the NEXT day and also got nearly all of our cinematography within the same weekend. We could not be more impressed with how our video came out and we are 100% certain that we would have really regretted not having our day on film. Peter's work is flawless; his love for the art shows through his work radiantly. My husband and I have watched our film countless times and have shed a tear each time. This is something we will love and cherish for many years to follow and are so thankful for all of the amazing experience and sophistication Peter contributed to the most important day of our lives. The biggest piece of advise I can give future grooms and brides is you 100% DO need a videographer for your wedding and it NEEDS to be Peter Scheibner with P.S. Photography.

I've had several experiences with TNT Photography and Video and all of them fantastic. Rich Sorensen's videography is outstanding. He has done several jobs in the sport of equestrian show jumping, from slow motion demo to a fantastic split screen of two different rides on the same course. The result has always been high quality, good color and clarity without wind noise. Rich maintains a high standard of quality and service, a true professional.

Jessica is a delight! I had the pleasure of hiring Jessica to take pictures of my makeup artistry for my portfolio and I couldn’t be more pleased with the results! She has such an eye for the the angles, lighting and posing of our model that produced amazing photos. As an MUA I’m ecstatic at the opportunity to display my work to help build my clientele and of course have a photographer partner to refer my clients to.

I loved working with Erin! I hired Erin to photograph our wedding in the backyard of my husband's house. She really showed a lot of interest in my vision and making sure she captured our day in the best way possible. We did one phone call around the time I hired her and another one as the day neared. I also loved that she was so open to being helpful in general - I was like I have never planned a wedding before I have no idea what to do haha. Something else worth noting is that I myself am a photographer so I was very picky with photography when planning my wedding. Erin is truly an artist and I was confident she was the best one for our day. I would hire her over and over again if it wasn't for the reason that I hope I don't ever have to have another wedding hahah! The day of, Erin was overall really pleasant and great to have around! She was a great personality with my makeup artist Nikolina (who was also awesome). Our preview images came back beeeeautiful and I can't wait to see the rest!

Shawn Tomkinson of Shawn Tomkinson Photography proved herself and her exceptional talent not once, not twice...BUT three times within my familys' needs. My direct experience with Shawn and her fine photography included both of my daughters' weddings, as well as a private photo session for a few new headshots of myself for my website: marie@mariecaswelldesigns.com. Shawn was respectful, creative, sensitive, discrete, prepared, responsible, experienced and totally fun! And this is why I continue to highly recommend her to friends and acquaintances.

I had maternity photos done with Cheri back in September, and since then she has also taken my little girl's newborn and 3-month photos. I honestly couldn't be more pleased! Cheri's a talented photographer... she's very aware of her surroundings and shifts effortlessly to make sure the lighting is just right and that she's in the best possible position to capture every memorable moment. The quality of her photography speaks for itself. I think what I've most enjoyed and appreciated as a client, though, is simply working with Cheri. At the maternity shoot, I was literally less than 3 days from going into labor (so not exactly feeling my best). Cheri made me feel beautiful, and she was thoughtful to make sure I was comfortable and to help me transition from position to position. She also came ready with some fun ideas - I love her creativity! At my daughter's newborn and 3-month shoots, Cheri was absolutely amazing. She was gentle and loving, and she brought an incredibly warm energy into my house. And she's obviously comfortable and confident working with infants, which instantly made me feel at ease. She again arrived with some great ideas and props too - there were no real "what do we do now" moments. I highly recommend Cheri's services, especially for infant photography. Some of the photos from our shoots OVERFILL my heart with joy, and as time goes by I love them even more... makes me get a little teary-eyedlooking back at them now. (BTW, I've booked another session with Cheri in a few weeks for my daughter's 6-month photos - so excited!!)

    Jared Anderson at Rize Photography did an incredible job with our wedding. He sat down with me and my now husband before it began and discussed with us how we wanted it to be shot, and photographed accordingly. The pictures came out great! He does the work of at least two men.

    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.
