Giliane is probably one of the best photographers I've seen in the state of Minnesota. She has a way of making her shots look unique and spot on every single time. No matter what she's hired for, she will do it with flair and accuracy unparalleled. She is my go-to photographer for all of my band's work and is a very great person at the top of her wonderful talents. Giliane is the photographer you are looking for.

I had a delightful experience by hiring Dave for a portrait session Dave is friendly puntctual & really talented at what he does I have used a lot of photographers over the years & I have never met one as talented & passionate/artistic as Dave I always concidered myself to be un photo genic until my session with Dave. Dave does not rush hes friendly personality puts you right at ease & he takes the time & listens something which you can really see when you receive your photos they were even more perfect than I could ever of imagined all in all I had a really postive,fantastic experience I highly reccome Dave for any occasion/event.

Words can't describe just how fantastic this man is to work with. One of the most genuine human beings I have ever had the pleasure of knowing, and one of the most talented photographers I have ever had the pleasure of working with. He was willing to experiment, he was willing to hear what I WANTED, and adjust to what is going to suit ME best. I have received countless compliments from the top agencies and casting directors in the area, and because the shots are so good it will be awhile before I change my headshot. The best part? When I do change my headshot, I'm going right back to MNTalent because I want the nicest looking shots in the area. I assure you, you aren't going to find a man with this kind of talent, care, and passion for his clients. Thank you Mark. Thank you so much.

My name is Dawn and I have twins. A boy and girl who had their senior pictures taken by Little Mac Design. Our experience was great. Nicole was fun, creative,and made the kids feel very comfortable. My son was not wanting to have pictures done but by the 4th picture he was having so much fun he didn't want the posing to stop. He said " if you ever need a male model again just let me know this is fun!" My daughter wanted more than one session. A summer one and a fall one. We were blessed that Little Mac Design also offers mini sessions that made it very affordable to get the pictures and seasons my daughter was really desiring. Thank you Nicole {Little Mac Design} for caring so much for my teenagers and capturing their most important pictures in their school lives.

I have done both a modeling portfolio shoot and my senior photos shoot with Dan and have had a wonderful time. His use of humor, cracking jokes and making me smile always keep me at ease- and creates better photos! He even sometimes shows photos during the shoot to encourage good poses! He also is very open to pose ideas and really takes into consideration the particular "look" you're going for. Lastly, he is also the most affordable photographer I have come across; definitely the most bang for your buck.

Elle was great, very quick to respond and took great photos. I was nervous since she has some really good prices compared to others but she surely doesn’t lack in quality or professionalism. She was a joy to work with and I would recommend her to anyone looking for a quality Photographer.

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!

Cloud Media did a great job in shooting our annual gala for our non-profit. Photographer was on par when provided direction and interacting with our guests for the evening. The final images turned out great! Cloud Media was more than responsive when it came time to delivering the files via link to download. Also, knowledgable of file formats.

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.

Dann photographed my pre-bridal session, as well as our wedding, and we could not have chosen a better photographer! He is very professional and incredibly creative. He captured the moments and details that were most important to me in such a beautiful way. Most importantly the photographs he took were breath-taking and will be hanging in our home forever!

James is amazing to work with. Not only is he an amazing photographer he does so much more than that when it comes to your shoot. He is very vocal and very good about giving direction in posing. He makes his own sets, and they are always incredible works of art. He is very professional and at the same time makes you feel very comfortable. Like you are an old friend and you guys are just hanging out. That is super important and I have worked with a lot of photographers who lack that aspect. He is always the first photographer I think of when I have a concept in mind that I want executed, because I know he will nail it. I highly recommend James to anyone and everyone.

What can I say...Lauren is the best! Such a sweetheart and easy to talk to, her personality definitely gives her an edge if you’re looking for a photographer to help you capture those life-changing moments! Her attention to detail and ability to give direction will make your photo shoot a breeze. Don’t look any further if you’re in need of a great photographer!

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.
