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!

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 :)

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!!

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.

She wasn't a fabulous photographer! She arrived early to the wedding and helped not only the bride feel comfortable but the family and friends. She was very friendly and punctual! The pictures are phenomenal! Very beautiful pictures with great quality. The pictures display caught every moment of the family. I would highly recommend Leah to anyone!

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.

So grateful for Steve's critical contribution to our project. His talent and professionalism not only made our photoshoot a complete success, but he offered guidance that I desperately needed to meet all of our objectives - and budget. Steve offers more insight and 'big picture' vision than I expected from a photographer. I have recommended him to others and look forward to working with him on future projects.

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.
