Elaine was very responsive. Very professional. Her cost was almost 1/2 of what other photographers charged. She did some extra work for us at no charge also. Very Very Satisfied.

Giliane is a true artist and wonderful to work with. I cannot say enough about what a positive experience it was, from the planning to the amazing outdoor shoot. It was a very special day. The product ended up being incredible! We had a tough time eliminating shots from the final portfolio because there were so many great shots. We looked around a bit and compared local photographers, packages and pricing. Giliane's prices were very fair and economical. Giliane is a seasoned veteran with a camera, producing one great composition after the next. We would highly recommend using Giliane Mansfeldt and we will use her again for our photo needs.

Dave took every stresses my family and I had regarding pictures completely away!! I hadn't planned any specific poses, so I was really nervous about how it was going to turn out. But Dave showed up with great photo ideas that never stopped! My husband and I are so incredibly happy with how everything went! He was polite, friendly, knowledgeable, patient, helpful, funny, and he showed up early! All the guests said that he was fun to have around, and that during the ceremony he was taking tons of pictures from different vantage points! He also helped pose people for the family photos, and made sure everyone was visible and looked great! He also put up "sneak peek" pictures online that very same day! If I'm ever looking for a photographer again for any event, I'll be coming back to Dave! I highly recommend him!! I'm so excited to see how the rest of the pictures turned out!

Yale was absolutely amazing to work with! We had him DJ our wedding just a week ago, and I honestly couldn't have been happier! He helped decide on some of the music I was struggling with, and his style fit perfectly with the "feel" of our wedding. Although we didn't hire him as a photographer (a friend was already hired prior to meeting with Yale) he was always offering photo ideas, and even snapping some special moments that our photographers didn't capture! From keeping the guests on the dance floor, to interacting with the crowd, to throwing ideas our way... Yale was the perfect guy for the job, and I would recommend him to anyone looking for either a DJ or a photographer for their special day!

Emmerlee was the photographer at our wedding reception last Saturday. She was outstanding! She was so kind and considerate, ensuring everyone was happy and capturing all the photos that everyone was hoping to have taken. Her attention to detail was great and she kept me informed of pictures that I may be missing or may want during the reception. I HIGHLY recommend Emmerlee and will definitely use her again when I need a photographer for future events. You won't be disappointed!

Was an amazing experience. Had a beautiful and professional space. Talked about what I envisioned for the shots before beginning, and allowed me to collaborate in my preferences for the shot. Every couple frames he would show me the shots and asked me what I liked and didn't like, and we'd work off of that. Was quick and efficient, I got eight photos I really liked in under an hour with an outfit change (private dressing room as well). After the meeting, I got my proofs the next day, and once I chose my favorites, I got the final edits the FOLLOWING DAY. In my past experience with photographers it has taken weeks and even months to get the proofs, and then a similar amount of time to get the edits, so I was beyond impressed. Was very flexible and open to new ideas, I would 100% recommend. Only bummer was that his address was wrong on my maps and his sign was still up at the old place, so I stood outside the locked door trying to contact for about 20 minutes before he responded and told me that was the wrong place. Luckily, his new place was right across the street and he walked over to help me find my way.

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 (luckily) found Matthias last minute to photograph an event at our home. He was excellent at blending in to the scene, versus disrupting it, and provided us the professional, high quality shots we were after, without breaking the bank! Trust the thumbtack reviews :)

I contacted Courtney for a family shoot. She recommended the perfect location for what I had envisioned. Because of weather and health reasons, I had to reschedule our session more than 4 times and Courtney was always very understanding and accommodating. She was awesome with my little kids, especially my 4 years old boy who wanted nothing to do with pictures! She saved the day and managed to make him have fun and give his cutest smile. After only a week, I received my photo gallery, which is very fast! Some time I had to wait a month with other photographers. Pictures are terrific! Highly recommend Courtney!

We loved everything about having Maurissa as our photographer!! When we started planning our wedding, we were only a month away from the big day. Finding a photographer who had availability and who wouldn't break the bank was a top priority! Luckily, I came across Maurissa in a Facebook group, and she conveniently posted which days she still had open for the summer. Ours was one of them!! After looking over her reviews and photos, we knew she would be a great fit; and after meeting her that was confirmed even more! She was so professional, yet friendly in everything that she did for us leading up to the day and on the day of the wedding. She was down to take any shots that we requested, and had an amazing eye for getting beautiful setups and backgrounds! She had quick turnaround in all of our communication, was on time (and early really!) to everything, and gave us beautiful memories of our fantastic wedding day. We highly recommend anyone looking for a photographer to look no further than Mind of Mo!!

The photographs for our magazine are outstanding. Marla provided us nearly 150 files with close to a dozen settings from her shoot, so our options for publication were jaw-dropping. She communicated well with our designer throughout the process and has become one of our very favorite photographers. I am told that she was professional, pleasant and efficient at the shoot. I will hire Marla again, without a doubt, should the need arise.

Charnell worked with us both on family portraits and candid shots at our family reunion. She was extremely easy to work with throughout the process. We had a wide age range from young children to elders in their 90s, and she drew out smiles, laughs and great pictures from everyone. She showed a great sense for both backgrounds and personal expressions of style, and was quick to run with ideas that anyone in our group had. Another great thing about working with her was the quick turnaround time on the pictures and the easy process for allowing everyone in our group to see all the shots. That was a pleasant surprise relative to some of my prior experiences with photographers. The photos were so bright and fun that a few family members who were unable to attend are now more eager to make the next reunion! Overall, working with Charnell was an outstanding experience.

Angela did family photos for our immediate and extended family of 10. She was in time, flexible, creative, patient and ultimately we loved the outcome. Our pictures were great! The value was very fair as well. We would hire her again any day!

Dennis was an incredible flexible photographer and worked well under pressure and circumstance. He was thoughtful in the types of photos we might need for the event and was willing to take some risks as well (literally, as we were on top of a building!). I would recommend working with him again, as he was dedicated and zealous in making sure we had everything we needed.

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.
