Steve did our holiday family photos, and we were so impressed by his professionalism, the quality of the photos, as well as the quick turnaround time. He was very responsive throughout the booking process and answered all my questions. We ended up asking him to be our wedding photographer! I would highly recommend Novitsky Photography!

We had a phenomenal experience with Lu. I was a little nervous hiring our wedding photographer from this site, but it was the best decision I made. Lu took our engagement pictures as well as photographed our wedding day. She was always professional and prompt. She was more than helpful and was willing to try anything we wanted. The pictures ranged from fun and flirty to poised and proper. We come from a very large family and she was able to direct everyone to get all of the shots we wanted. Lu does a great job keeping everyone calm and encourages you to have fun. I will continue to use Lu for any photography needs we may have in the future!

Robert is fantastic! He's very professional and so easy to work with. He is willing to help you in any way possible to make the experience the best it can be. He photographed my engagement pictures and I didn't find a single one that I didn't love. I can't wait to see what he does with my wedding pictures!

Jeff did my bridal session and also my wedding. I haven't seen the pictures from the wedding yet but the bridal portraits were amazing! It almost feels like he should be taking more pictures but he definitely gives you just enough QUALITY shots that take your breath away, instead of a ton of mediocre shots that leave you wishing for more. I would also recommend Jeff because of his easy to get along with personality and quick responses. I emailed back and forth several times with him and he made me feel comfortable so that when meeting for the first time to do the photos, I felt at ease as if an old friend were taking my picture! You will NOT regret hiring Jeff!

We had a newborn photography session with Farid and it was beyond my expectations. Farid is very patient with kids. He spent a lot of time with my family so my two kids (one toddler and one newborn) are in their best mood for photography. He used natural light in all the photos and they all turned out great. I worked with different photographers in RTP area and my experience working with Farid was the best. He is really professional and easy to work with.

Suzanne managed to work me and my puppies into her busy schedule before Christmas. I needed to have a picture to send to my Mom for Christmas . She took many pictures of me and my puppies and actually had some printed and left on my door step in time for me to get one to my Mom before Christmas. It all worked out perfectly. I had contacted 4 other recommended photographers before finding Suzanne on Thumbtack. None of the other photographers called me back. All of the photographers from Thumbtack actually contacted me. I appreciate the response from all of the photographers. Suzanne was pleasant to work with and did a great job. She worked so well with my puppies. I appreciate her taking the time to meet my schedule and request.

Jen has always been there to capture every stage of my life - from our wedding (she flew from NC to Puerto Rico to shoot our wedding), maternity shoot, to the birth of our baby boy. I called her the day he was born and she came to the hospital the very next day! She was so excited to capture his first picture! She's so professional, always responsive, and punctual. But what I love the MOST about Jen is her creativity! I plan to use Jen exclusively for years to come!

Stephen is the reason why you hire a photographer for a wedding. Even at last minute he was able to provide quality pictures that are amazing. He is professional and easy to work with. He was such a professional that my wedding planner hired him on the spot for another wedding. Hire him and you will not be disappointed.

Delia met with myself, my wife, children and extended family to get some group photos done in Wake Forest, NC (Joyner Park). She was excellent wrangling the masses! It is always great to see a photographer with professional gear and setup (even though we differ in taste of brand!)! We would highly recommend Delia! Thank you!

Best experience I have ever had! Christina has a true gift of not only taking amazing photos, but making you comfortable during the process. I have extreme anxiety when it comes to photos, but Christina put me at ease almost immediately. I cannot say enough kind things about the experience. They are the best photos I have ever had taken. They are even better than my wedding photos!

Krista was such a delight to work with. She was on time, went from taking my pre-wedding pictures to the house to take my husband and the groomsmen pictures as well. I could not have found a better person that was so personable and kind to do my wedding pictures. Krista made my very wedding day very special and spectacular. She shared pictures with me as she finished them and I cried at the sight of everyone. She even fit right in with all of my family and my in laws. They enjoyed her and we did as well. If you ever need a photographer that has your best interest at heart and will go above and beyond for you as well as give you FANTABULOUS, EXTRAORDINARY PICTURES please contact Krista Bordatto.

Visual Collaborations did an awesome job with my daughter’s senior pictures! They were punctual, and they made her feel very comfortable and confident. I love the fact that they take both traditional and not so traditional pics because they truly showed my daughter’s personality. If you’re looking for a photographer that goes above and beyond then you don’t need to look any further!

S'mores Photography is the best around. I can't say enough about how amazing Patti, the owner, is. She is a very professional and fun photographer to work with! She takes her time and makes sure to get creative poses and really good shots. She has props and is eager to do the style of you want for your photoshoot. This helps make the experience more natural and less posed which makes the photos even better! You can tell she is truly passionate about her art, it shows in the high quality of her photos. It's so important to me to capture my family's life and Patti does an amazing job at it. I always love the photos she takes and I always get compliments on them. I highly recommend Patti, from S'mores Photography to anyone looking to have photos done

I had many event covered by 7Hills Photography. We were really happy to have contracted with 7 hills Photography. All-important moments were captured. Photographs were delivered on time and certainly all pictures were edited with utmost professionalism. 7 Hills photography is reliable, detail oriented, trustworthy and professional in aspects of delivering products and services. Couldn’t have asked for more. 7Hills photography is now our family photographer to cover all momentous events in our life’s.

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.
