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 !!!

Chris has been invaluable to my business. He is literally on speed dial. He just completed documenting 8 week youth arts program for us and it was a pleasure working with him every step of the way. In addition to the event photography, he did creative photography with the 30 students, inspired by the work of Kehinde Wiley. These works will be exhibited in a professional art gallery.

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.

Dena was amazing! Where do I even begin?? She arrived before our guests arrived to make sure she could setup and everything was ok. Our guests had so much fun and can't stop commenting and sharing their images with friends and family. She had a plethora of props to pick from and her booth had larger 4x6 prints (open air style) which made for a cool party vibe and allowed for a framed print! Love them and would highly recommend orange light studios for any event!

Fantastic experience. Paul was on time and worked hard during a chaotic day at my graduation. He was friendly with my family and worked quickly to get the photographs to me. He took the time to meet with me the day before graduation to talk about what we were looking for specifically. He did all this for the lowest price of all the photographers who were on Thumbtack. Would recommend him to anyone looking for a reliable and skilled photographer.

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!

They did a wonderful job with my father's 70th Surprise birthday party! My dad kinda blew our photo opp by coming in the wrong door for his party and instead of just being upset about missing the shot, Ms. Barbara, asked us to "re-do" the shot. It was cute and I believe it took courage to ask. It is one of the best stories from his birthday! They delivered the pictures in a beautiful flash drive and we have memories that we will cherish for a lifetime. Thank you for sharing our event with us and capturing the joy of the day!

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.
