We found Mark to be an excellent choice for our beach wedding. He was on time, polite, professional and did a fantastic job with the photos. Mark supplied us with compiled disk set to our choice of music as well as all photos! I highly recommend him for anyone looking for a top notch professional photographer. We are heading back to North Carolina soon and will be contacting Mark for another photo shoot on the beach. This time to just capture a fun vacation. Larry and Leigh Elkins

Atticus is a wonderful photographer who is professional and extremely creative. You can tell that he is creative based off of his portfolio. His series of photos are diverse and filled with breath taking photos of various models in wonderful scenery that compliments them. Personally, Atticus is a hard worker and he makes sure that his models are natural. This means that he wants them to be comfortable and he wants them to also showcase their personality which makes the photos delightful.

Tara did an outstanding job with our baby's newborn shoot. The session went great and she was super patient with our little girl and made us feel very comfortable. The pictures also turned out amazing and we got them so quickly. I would recommend her to anyone looking for an amazing photographer that has great prices. We will definitely be coming back for more pictures!

Spent a few hours getting head shots taken with Matthew. The experience was certainly an awesome one. Matt was very professional in his matter, and style. Not once did I ever feel out of place, or uncomfortable during the shoot. He was friendly, and had many creative ideas, while still allowing for my input on locations and poses. Would certainly recommend Matt for any photography job. Can't wait to work with him again.

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!

The Best on The East! Peter is one of the best freelance videographers we have hired for our out of state listings! We hired him to take photos of an upcoming Dollar General in Carolina Beach, NC. The drone aerials came out phenomenal! Do not waste your time looking at other quotes, he is the man to hire!

    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.

      Sonya photographed my son when he was two days old. She was absolutely fantastic. Her gentle, calm, patience amazed me and put all, including my newborn, at ease. Though the session was quick, she captured so many beautiful moments that my husband and I wanted to order prints of them all. I would, and do, recommend her to anyone. She is talented, passionate, and has a remarkably warm and kind demeanor.

      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.
