Thumbtack was a shot in the dark that led to a wonderful experience with Cristina Popovic as our wedding photographer. I planned the wedding with only 2 weeks notice and Cristina helped so much in so many unexpected ways that everything came off perfectly. Her professional attitude and helping us by calling upon her wedding network of other disciplines was outstanding. I HIGHLY recommend Cristina!

Courtney took our wedding photos. She did a beautiful job. The only issue we had was actually receiving the photos. It took longer than expected to receive them. That is the only thing that could be improved.

Juliana did a late minute session with us. She was very professional and willing to come to our house. She made sure to get the photos that I wanted as well as making recommendations and our sneak peak photographs look amazing. Thank you so much for documenting our memories for us.

We hired Justin to do our engagement photos, wedding photos, and our reception photos. The engagement photos we took down at Loose Park. He met us down there and we took pictures all over the park. He was very good at setting up different photos and he great ideas for pictures. He was fun to work with and the pictures turned out awesome. On our weeding day, he showed up early with an extra photographer and took pictures before, during, and after the ceremony. The church had tricky lighting and the pictured turned out great. He met us at the reception and he took pictures all night till we left at 11:30pm. He captured many great moments and we were very impressed. We will use him for any and all future photography sessions. He is awesome and affordable. -Tim & Cari. :-)

We loved having Thomas as our photographer for our wedding day. He was friendly, professional, made us feel relaxed and have fun, and the quality of his work was second to none. Not only did we get some great formal photos throughout the day but he caught some of the most natural candid moments of the day which have stuck with us ever since. We LOVED the photos he produced, and still to this day we look back on those photos and feel like we are right back there. I would highly recommend Thomas for any photography projects from the most personal to the most professional. - Cameron & Susannah

From the beginning of meeting David he was extremely accommodating, easy to work with, not to mention talented! He puts his clients first which proves by his simple ask of "where's convenient for you to meet up?" From our initial meeting, David was very professional and both my fiance and I felt extremely comfortable around him. His welcoming demeanor makes for a comfortable photo shoot for both engagement photos and our wedding photos! He has a way of being stealthy and silent to capture real moments that you had no clue he was able to even get, along with speaking up and making people comfortable when necessary such as around kids or people who may be shy when taking photos. I love how David truly loves what he does, and feels like a part of your family or friend on your day- all of our friends and family loved him and his crew of videographers/photographers. We were blown away by our pictures when we got them! It was rainy on our wedding day during our time to take pictures so David thought of some creative alternatives and got some other wonderful photos as a back up! For them being a backup, we couldn't have asked for anything better when we got our photos back! We will certainly use David again for family photos and any other photos in the future!

She is an incredible photographer and has a package for any budget! She also made us feel very comfortable in front of the camera ( witch is not something we are good at!) Faith did our engagement and wedding photos and will hopefully do many more photos for us in the future!

Jim was too kind to us, he let use have an engagement photo shoot because our wedding was an early brunch thing so it wasn't a long wedding so he said would do that for us since short wedding. And he spent a long time with us there. At our wedding, he said he could continue more of our wedding pics when it's cooler like in a few weeks in a different place in the city, more interesting photos in our dress and wedding suit. He offered to take us to a carnival or someplace unique for not just or location photos, something truly unique. We never asked for these extras he just offered them up for no extra because he's awesome. I like him and what he offered us as options allot. I will contact him first if I need a photographer in the future

Kayla is an awesome choice if you are needing some photos taken. She did my engagement photos and my wedding photos. Each time she was very flexible with what I wanted and made sure that I got exactly what I wanted. She is young but don't let her age fool you. She has some awesome skills! Her mom is what I think Kayla likes to call her "assistant" and she is awesome to have around too. With the two of them together they make a great team. Oh yeah, and the price doesn't hurt either. Thanks again for the awesome photos!

These days it's hard to find an affordable photographer that does exceptional work. We found all the above in Adams Photography, they go above and beyond. Marc was responsible for taking pictures of our kettle corn product and uploading them to our website so the consumers could have a visual image. In the food industry appearance can dictate how well your product sells. The pictures turned out better than we could have ever imagined. Marc conducted his business in a very professional manner, met the deadlines that we set up, and overall exceeded our expectations. This is a first class photographer that I would highly recommend to anyone.

Leah did my husband and I the honor of capturing our wedding photos with her creative and professional eye. We were beyond happy with how she documented our big day. The quality and uniqueness of our photos are fun to show our family and friends and also have prints through out our home. I can confidently recommend Leah to anyone I know.

We couldn't have chosen a better team to work with for our wedding! Still blown away by these photos. Austin christian photography was so fun and easy to be around, they were so proffessional but at the same time they just felt like family at the wedding! So great.

We could not have asked for a more professional and more friendly photographer. Like in most weddings, we had a couple of changes in plans and Jared Cook was quick to adapt to those changes. He was very courteous to our wishes and will definitely use JC Photography next time we need a 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.
