Elaine helped myself and a co-worker with headshots for a relaunched web site. She quoted us a great price and was efficient with our time. She was engaging and easy to work with during the photography shoot.

I recently went to Giliane E. Mansfeldt Photography for a couple of head shots. I was nervous walking in to her studio because I never had single pictures taken of me before but Giliane was imaginative, creative, adaptable and above all professional. I left her studio feeling great! The final headshot pictures were terrific I couldn’t have been happier with her service. Thank you Giliane! -Jody

Mark handled the photo shoot expertly. My son is 18 and very uncomfortable in front of a camera. Mark was able to get natural smiles in a variety of poses and had both of us laughing throughout. It was a great experience and I would recommend Mark at MNTalent Photography in a heartbeat.

I hired Yale from Dempag to do my photography, DJ and also for the photo booth. He was amazing on every level. My photos are so beautiful and I couldn't be happier. He is hilarious as a DJ and made sure that everyone had a great time, so many compliments. With my package I got the photo booth and everyone loved it! Both Yale and his assistant were very professional and really went out of their way to make sure I didn't have to do anything. So easy working with one company who could handle it all. Thanks Yale and I will recommend you to everyone.

Emmerlee was phenomenal to work with. She was very professional and prompt when responding to emails. On our wedding day, she was efficient, but not pushy with family photos. She had a ton of ideas for photography locations in and around our wedding venue and was totally comfortable with coming up with ideas when I lacked them. I would book her again in a heartbeat.

I used Tim and Madie Photography for my wedding and also for a commercial shoot for work. Tim is great to work with, you can really tell he puts his heart into his photography, capturing the moment and always getting the best shots from the best angles. I cannot say enough about how impressed I have been with the final product and the service alike. For anything I need photography-related, Tim and Madie Photography is my go-to and should be yours as well!

Our experience with Chris was fantastic. When we began looking at examples of engagement photos, we discovered two types of photographers. Those who's photos looked like I could have taken it myself, and the others that had a certain professional quality to their work. We can happily say that CBro Photography can deliver professional quality, in addition to a friendly attitude. Chris is a great guy and we enjoyed our time with him.

I was having a hard time finding video for my wedding and received a recommendation through my photographer for MJS Productions. I reached out and he talked through his services with me. I was pleased to find that he was able to do my wedding for a really good value and be onsite at my wedding for a minimum of 7hrs. Overall, when we received the final video in the mail, it was so enjoyable to watch everything back over again. I highly recommend not just going with photography but also getting a videographer. It is so worth it, and going with Mike was a good decision we made. He was on time, he was a cool guy to be around on the wedding day, and he did a great job with our video.

Laura was amazing all around! I was late due to a road being closed that I was unaware of, and she was so gracious about it and we were able to just jump right into our photoshoot without any further awkwardness. As for the actual photography, I only got a glimpse of a few of the photos right on her camera, but even without any editing, they looked amazing! She and her husband were experts about how to get just the right light. They were both very creative in working with the environment (a park near my home they had not shot in before) to get really fun shots of me and my dogs! I just wanted one nice photo of myself and my two dogs as a birthday gift for my mom, but just knowing how great all of the photos are going to be, I doubt that I will be able to restrict myself to just one photo. I will likely buy several photos. I only just had our photo shoot this evening that I am writing this review, but I had such a good time and was so pleased with Laura's attitude about the photoshoot and all around friendliness that I had to write this review before even seeing my finished photos because I am that confident that they are going to be amazing. Thank you Laura for a great experience, I am so looking forward to having these beautiful photos of my little fur-babies!

Dann is the best photographer and digital artist I’ve ever had the opportunity to work with. His personality always brings the smiles and his ability to connect with the subject allows for genuine expressions captured. Extremely creative and the quality of his work is top notch. If you are having your photography done by Dann Kasallis Photography, rest assured you’ll have the best of the best. He’s a master of his craft.

Aerial 360 was very quick and professional, Robb showed me that he had secured liability insurance and FAA clearance. He allowed me to look over his shoulder and guide the photography. The photos were provided same day and were great.

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.
