Darin is absolutely amazing! My husband is not the biggest fan of having his picture taken, but Darin has the personality to pull people out of their shell, so he got some fantastic photos for our engagement and wedding. Darin was always early every time we met and even the makeup artist and hairstylist for the wedding commented how much they liked his style because he's not as serious as most photographers and would actually chat with everyone and get people smiling, which made for great pictures. I can't thank him enough for doing such a great job.

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!

I would say this is the most amazing photographer that I have ever worked with but she is more than that. She is the most amazing PERSON I have ever worked with on anything period! She is professional, courteous, and accommodating yet easy going and fun-loving! We hired her to do my daughter's senior pictures and I can't even begin to describe what an incredible experience it was. Not only did she do a fantastic job she did it at the last minute. The photographer that we originally hired cancelled 4 hours before the scheduled shoot. He was worried about the weather forecast. I knew it was a long shot to try and find someone else at the last minute but we had already put a lot of preparation into getting ready for the session. By that I mean we had already picked the outfits, done the hair and makeup and I had transformed the back of our SUV into a sort of fitting room. Since we were doing the shoot Downtown St Louis I knew my daughter would need a place to change clothes so I was prepared. Little did I know that Giovanna, even on such short notice, had us covered for any eventuality. She had her own little pop up dressing room, towels, umbrellas and just about anything else you can think of or would need. Again she did all of this with just a couple hours notice. Only later did I find out that she lives about an hour from the location we had chosen for the shoot so really she put it together in about an hour and she did it without hesitation. Needless to say I was extremely grateful for everything she was doing and I told her I couldn't believe what all she had done to make it happen for us. Her response was simply, "I like to make people happy." Now you know what I mean when I say she is the most amazing PERSON period! How many photographers would drop everything they were doing last minute on a Sunday afternoon, meet a strange client an hour away, and be more professional and prepared than any photographer you have ever worked with before......only GIOVANNA von NIDA PHOTOGRAPHY I guarantee it !!!

Ms. Newbury has been our photographer for our company Christmas Party the last 2 years. Each year there is a different theme and we have employees, family, vendor suppliers from all over the country that dress up for the theme. Ms. Newbury is excellent at capturing the event in her photos. We plan on utilizing her services again next year as well.

we enjoyed every bit of our time with Bob, he went above and beyond of what we expected him to do. And he wasn't really worried about the time we bargained for. I really enjoyed his congeniality and will recommend him to any one who's looking forward to having a good photographer for an event

After a great first experience with Karen's photography, I have asked her to do our family portraits annually for the past six years. Unlike previous photographers, within 4 days Karen gave me a disk with ALL THE PHOTOS. I like to decide which quirky look is typical and endearing on a child, something a photographer can't know. Since I got all the photos I had great fun playing with cropping them and choosing which to frame. She has done Senior Portraits, formal groups and my favorite are the very informal settings. I will call her again and again.

Mike O is the best photographer to have for any special occasion or photography session. He was on early and on top of all the details. There was no set schedule for his time. Mike made sure to be there for every moment of my wedding. If there was a request he was so flexible and fufilled it while giving his professional opinion. My photos turned out gorgeous including the samples he gave us as a gift. Unlike most photographers he dedicates his time unlimited to you and gave us a copy of all the moments. His pricing was less than any others and the quality even better!! Many of my guests complimented on how interactive and hilarious he was as well.

I have seen many photographers before.Actually, I am really picky with every single thing that I wanna do or buy, but, but, he is the one whom you can ly on him with no hassles.we had 3 hrs of fun and enjoyable photo-shooting with him and, I really happy for choosing him between other photographers .our photos are amazing and speechless.I really love ,love ,love.... my husband is a very uncomfortable guy with these kinds of stuff like photo-shooting, but at the end, he told me we should have more session in future and it was shocking for me :))definitely I and my husband will have more session in different seasons with him, as long as we live in St.Louis. I highly recommend him to any couples who looking for a punctual, professional, responsible photographer with a calm session, and amazing photos... :)

    WOW! I couldn't have imagined our photos being any more beautiful then they are!! Lyle Whitworth came to Washington, Missouri with his team and really outdid themselves! They captured the entire day perfectly!! From individual photos to whole group settings, capturing the light in different ways so that each person was in the perfect position. If you are in the market for a photographer, choose Lyle Whitworth Photography! You will be glad you did!!

    AA provided a projection surface and projector for our event in the St. Louis Area. They were a professional crew of two and we were very happy with the quality of the visual that we were able to project. Will certainly keep on our list for future entertainment/AV needs. Thanks!

    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.
