Mark was such a fantastic choice for our photographer during Thanksgiving. He was so accommodating with schedules and made sure that we got just the pictures we were looking for. I couldn't recommend him enough - especially if you are out of town and looking for a vendor. He has open communication and has the photos ready to view in just a few short days.

Tara is such a wonderful photographer. She gets to know the surrounding areas to find the perfect spot for a photo shoot. She works very well with children and strives to get that perfect shot-you never know when it will happen-but she finds it! Her editing is great and she takes the perfect amount of time returning them to you! Her prices are also very reasonable. Love her!

My family and I vacationed for the first time ever on Oak Island, NC this summer. Prior to going I searched for days trying to find a reasonable photographer to take some family pictures. Luckily I came across Jennifer. We couldn't be more happy with her and her pictures! Jennifer was extremely responsive from day one, professional, she handled our large group (6 adults, 2 children) especially my 17 month old who had a short window of cooperation, she helped us pick a location since we were from out of town and most importantly her pictures came out great! Thank you so much for capturing a memory that my family will cherish for year to come!

    Martin is very professional and fun to work with during a shoot. He's creative and has a great eye! The turn around time for receiving our photos was quicker than expected and the photos are beautiful! We were so fortunate to be able to do the shoot with Martin since we were not able to get a photographer for our actual wedding. Now we have professional photos of the two of us in our wedding garb which means the world to us.

    I was an out-of-town bride planning my Wilmington wedding from Ohio. Wedding planning is inherently stressful, but planning one from 600 miles away in a place with unfamiliar vendors was daunting at first. Terah took an hour with me for our initial consultation (free of charge) and completely eased my stress. She carefully listened to my needs and created a custom package based on my budget and my vision for my day. When I think back on it, a photographer is the most important vendor to hire for your day as it is those images that will be the only tangible things that you can take with you forever. Bouquets die, food is forgotten, dresses can be outgrown, but I often look at the images from my wedding and can very vividly remember the love, the laughs, candid little moments and conversations with my family and friends, the sincerity of our vows, and the way the reception venue smelled of our vanilla candles from our centerpieces. Terah's company is called "Timeless Fotographie" and that is just what I feel we got; timeless images that were creative, communicative, and "us". I greatly appreciate Terah sharing her art with us and cherish our creative, formal, and reception pictures.

    Eric and Team, Thank you so much for being a part of our big day, as well as everything you have done for our wedding! We could not have asked for more perfect engagement photos, and could not have asked for a better photographer. Shooting with you is so easy and laid back – it’s like hanging out with a friend who happens to have a camera. And your photos – absolutely flawless, always. We are so looking forward to getting the wedding photos back and re-living this special day all over again! We will hands down be recommending you to EVERYONE we know!

      Sonya was great and SO patient with our family. We hired her for our Christmas pictures and they turned out fabulously. Her prices are spot-on and well worth it for the pictures you get. Turnaround time for the pictures was good, considering Thanksgiving and the holidays. She is great with communications! If you email she replies quickly. We will definitely be hiring her for family photos again!

      I have done several shoots with Bryant now, and I love the fact that he takes the time to really capture more than a photograph, but also the emotion of a person. Bryant is experienced in his technique and manages to photograph life's moments in a way that can only be described "in a thousand words". From professional head-shots, to goofing-off moments, Bryant gets the shot every time. I can't wait to get my 6-year-old in front of him so we can get shots in before first grade, and every year thereafter.

      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.
