I went to Gary for professional photography (headshot) for my advertising and I couldn't be more pleased. Gary took over 50 photographs to get just the right picture. During the photo shoot Gary was personable and asked many questions to make sure he knew what I wanted. Once I had them narrowed down to the one's (I chose 4 of them) I liked, he edited them perfectly to make sure I looked my best and the finished product was fantastic.. I would highly recommend Rohman Photography for all of your photography needs.

Words cannot describe how truly amazing my experience with Cristina has been. We clicked from the moment we met at the consultation and every single meeting and photo shoot we had was fun and very comfortable. She goes out of her way to give you direction and help you get the most out of your photos, such as telling you to stand differently to flatter yourself more. My pictures literally turned out amazing. The photography was by far my favorite part of my whole wedding and now I can relive this perfect day over and over again through these stunning photos. Every single guest loved Cristina and all of my bridesmaids/best friends were so impressed, I know that they are going to use her for all of their future photo needs. Not only is Cristina an amazing artist with an unbelievable eye for beauty, she also is just such an incredible person all together. She will be there to tell you if the makeup artist made your face look too washed out, or to tell you to get on the dance floor with your girls to get more great photos. She did so much more than just photography, she really helped direct my day and coordinated very well with my other vendors, such as the DJ. I could go on and on about how perfect our experience with Cristina was. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for great photographer in general or an amazing wedding experience.

Danielle was a great photographer. She was accommodating, thoughtful, creative, and kept great communication. We had to change the date of our photoshoot a few times due to conflicts and she was more than willing to work with us! We hired her for family portrait with a 6 mo old. She was patient and understanding that my little guy was not always the most cooperative. In the end, she got some really great photos! We are very happy with the quality and thoughtfulness of the photo session. We would definitely use Danielle/Muddbug Photography again!!

We had a blast gathering for some awkward "family" photos with our team of co workers. Alexsandra captured the spirit of our silliness with the utmost professionalism. She worked with us from day one, sharing ideas and ensuring our vision was met, and luckily on only a couple weeks notice. We were so grateful! It really helped that she was just as excited as we were to go through with this off the wall photo shoot. We can't wait to see the final images becasue we are pretty sure she is going to deliver exactly what we are looking for. I highly recommend LoudRock Studio for all your photography needs. She is truly a versatile artist.

Rivera Eye Photography did the photography for my best friend’s wedding last weekend. He showed up early, took GREAT photos, was flexible with any and all last-second changes, kind, personable and his rates were entirely fair. I’d absolutely recommend them, especially if you’re on a budget! Great job!

We gave Elizabeth a very hard task (capturing a disc golf tournament), and the final products are amazing! As a smaller nonprofit with a limited budget, we hesitated hiring a photographer for the event, and I am SO glad we did. The photos could not be more amazing!!! Elizabeth was able to capture the action and excitement of the event, and the quality of her photos is amazing. Because this was our first tournament, I gave her little direction (sorry, Elizabeth!), and she exceeded our expectations. I would highly recommend her to anyone who asks!

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

JP Richardson of JPSHOTS is an incredibly entertaining and talented creative. He works hard to capture your most beautiful moments and great lasting memories in his images. He goes above and beyond the call of duty and is a talented technician of light. He graduate with degrees on both BS in professional photography and a BFA in graphic design. I have worked closely with him on projects and in classes so I can attest to his dedication and determination to produce excellent work that both he and his clients are proud of.

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.
