When I hired Darin for my wedding, I had never met him or talked to him. Some of my husbands nieces had used him for their weddings, and loved him, so that was good enough for me and we hired him. I never knew that when I was hiring him as my wedding photographer, I was also hiring him for a lifetime. Darin has turned into our family photographer for everything! Anytime someone is looking for a wedding photographer - I always tell them that they are crazy not to hire him! We love him! My kids adore him! We have never had a bad experience with Darin and our pictures always come out perfect and something that I can be proud to treasure for a lifetime. He always has great ideas and is always willing to try all my "Pinterest" finds and ideas. He is a very gifted photographer, and is a pleasure to deal with. On our wedding day, he was a blast to have at the party and just fit in like he was part of the family. Hiring Darin will be something that you will never regret. -Rachel

We hired the Film Perspective to do a photo booth for our wedding reception. Our photographer did a great job. He had a variety of props and all the guests had a great time. The best part was seeing all of the images on the disc after the honeymoon. The BEST part was watching video messages from our dear friends that stayed later and recorded them. We would recommend the Film Perspective for your photo booth! We would recommend the video portion be available earlier. All in all a great experience!

We truly loved our experience working with Giovanna; for our parents 50th wedding anniversary photoshoot. She and her crew were relaxed and professional at our crazy difficult shoot with over 15 family members. We would highly recommend Giovanna to anyone in Saint Louis area looking for a great photographer.

During the entire planning process leading up to the wedding, Katen was always very helpful when answering my questions and had such a positive attitude! Of all the vendors I hired, she was the one I enjoyed working with the most! On wedding day, she let me know she was under the weather but would not have missed my wedding for anything and even though I could tell she wasn't feeling well, she never complained and stayed the entire time, just snapping away. I would refer her to anyone! So glad we met they this service and look forward to hiring her again in the future!

Dena was wonderful to work with! She provided the photobooth at our wedding on 09/19/2015. She was quick to respond, and kept me up to date as she custom designed the cover art for our photobooth pictures. She was pleasant to coordinate with, and even offered to set up before our reception started, so as not to bother guests during dinner. For the price of the photobooth, there was a seemingly unlimited number of things included! She compiles a scrapbook of all the photos (and took the time to customize the color of the scrapbook just for me!) and the upgraded scrapbook is absolutely gorgeous. She uploaded our photos to social media within 24 hours, and gave me a flash drive with all the pictures at the end of the night! On top of that - the props were hilarious, the photos taken were adorable, the walk up, open air style allows the scenery of reception site to be included & feels so much less constrictive than the typical closed-style booth, and Dena and her crew were extremely pleasant the entire night. I feel so fortunate to have found Dena unexpectedly and thrilled beyond words with the excellent service she provided - and the price is so reasonable! I would definitely hire Dena's Photobooth again in a second! I highly recommend her service!

Mike was an absolute blessing to us at our wedding! He not only was able to meet with and give us an insane deal (compared to any other photographer we could find), but he did it all within a week of our wedding. He's quick, easy going, and in all honestly I forgot he was even at our wedding outside of wedding party photos. The best part about it all was not just his professionalism, but his ability to joke around have fun just like a friend you've known for years. Save your money, and go with Mike. You not only get the most bang for your buck, but if you hate taking photos, like myself, I promise he will make the experience more fun than you could imagine!

We were in a bind when our original photographer backed out on our wedding close to a month before the big day. I am a big believer that everything happens for a reason and this stressful situation was no different. Losing our photographer lead us to Merinda with A Sweet Focus. Our wedding photos were beautiful and more amazing than I ever thought possible. She was also so nice to work with. Anything I asked or wanted, she made sure it was done. Her second photographer Felicia was just as wonderful. I would recommend them to everybody!

Now You See It Photography offered me the best price BY FAR on my photo booth for my wedding! I had worked as the hostess of a wedding Richard had a photo booth at and absolutely loved the set up. His photo is much bigger than most so you can fit so many more people in one picture! Everyone loved their experience with him! One of my groomsmen even hired Richard for his wedding! I recommend Now You See It Photography to everyone looking for a photo booth! I loved everything about my experience with them!

The experience with Forever Remembered is one I will definitely never forget. I got a chance to work with Mrs. Jessica who was an absolute God send. She made my wedding picture taking process so stress free. She was very organized, prepared and flexible. The pictures were absolutely gorgeous. She did an amazing job at capturing my wedding. I didn't see all of the wedding of course because I was the bride in the wedding but, seeing those missing parts of the wedding through her camera lens made me feel like I was right there seeing it for myself. She did an excellent job. I will absolutely use her services many times throughout the years. Thank you so much for making this occasion seem just as important for you as it was for me. Your were Excellent :)

About

Your life is a beautiful life and it's my goal to show that you're living that beautiful life through my portraits of you and your loved ones. I want your images to reflect you. I talk with you and find out what you like, what you don't like. I adore natural lighting and will almost always opt to shoot out of doors. Newborn sessions have been held inside and out depending on your desires but always in an area that has a large amount of lighting coming into the room if it's indoors. Weddings are a huge part of my services these days and I adore them. I also do Events. If there is a portrait of any kind to be made, I'm your gal. Personable, Professional, Talented, Experienced.

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.
