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.

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.

I could not have asked for a better photographer than Dan at Excalibur. I'm usually not excited to take pictures in the first place, but he made it an enjoyable experience from beginning to end. Also loved the quality of prints that we ordered. Next time we need pictures, we won't even get quotes on Thumbtack. We know who our photographer is.

Elle of Nouvelle is armed with such myriad talents that it was comparable to having hired an Artistic Director, wardrobe specialist, set designer, and conceptual consultant as well as a photographer. She was very creative and thoughtful in scouting locations and checking light levels in so many places. Prior to the wedding, she helped the bride conceptualize the vision and offered many wonderful ideas and inspiration.The way that the event was captured through her magical lens was extraordinary and the photos are absolutely priceless. I recommend getting Nouvelle at your event now before she becomes exceedingly (and deservingly) expensive.

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!

Matthias was awesome! Literally hours before we needed a photographer I hopped on Thumbtack to see if anyone was available to shoot our band's shopping trip. Matthias responded within an hour and his quote was reasonable. He joined us only a few hours later on our wacky, out-of-the-box, photo shoot. Not only were his pictures great, but his punctuality, good eye, and sense of humor made for an absolutely unforgettable event. Thank you again!

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.

Mike made a great video for our wedding. He was very responsive to messages beforehand. He arrived before the ceremony to set up, and basically just did his thing without us needing to give him any direction. He and our photographer sometimes competed for space because they both wanted to stand in the same stop, but they worked it out between themselves, and he then got in touch with her to get still shots to intersperse throughout the video. We got the whole video within a few weeks, and it was well edited and well shot.

Kayla was amazing to work with. I first picked her after seeing how well her pictures seemed to capture natural smiles as well as used natural warm sunny colors without being over saturated. During the actual shoot she was very friendly and talked with us about what we wanted while guiding the pictures with obvious skill and care. Kayla was easy to talk to and it resulted in more natural smiles and relaxed poses which is what we really wanted. Our absolute favorite picture was one that wasn’t posed or planned, but she had her camera up and ready to capture the beautiful candid picture that really showed a lot of emotion and love. It’s because of that readiness and ability to quickly catch the moment that convinced us that this professional, kind, and skilled photographer was the one we wanted for our wedding.

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.
