Igor was fantastic! We hired him to do family pictures which included 2 young children under the age of 4. He arrived on time (drove 2 hrs each way to get to us!). He was patient with our kids who weren't excited to be taking pictures. He made great recommendations on background and people placement. He would have done more but our kids were done after 1.5 hrs. We have used more expensive photographers, and Igor's work is on par with theirs. Our pictures are beautiful and we appreciate his work! Highly recommend!

We hired The DJ's Mic, for a 40th birthday. Decided to go with the full package deal. Lights, sound, a photographer, and Photobooth. This was our first photobooth experience, and I must say the kids had loads if fun. The music was a nice blend of anything that you would typically find on the radio, with some older stuff thrown in for old timers like myself. I do want to apologize to "Mike" our DJ. The kids would not leave him alone. However he was very patient with them and played all of there songs. Over all I would recommend. We paid $2400 for a DJ, Photography, A photobooth, and the DJ. A great price!

My company and I have had the pleasure of working with David on two events. Both times he exceeded our expectations; this, based off of our experience with previous photographers. David's level of professionalism is reflected through his presence when shooting an event, and in the final product. With this in mind, David Bruno is a fantastic event photographer. He delivers magazine-ready images, that in our case, wind up making it to print. And, ultimately, he has helped us create a portfolio of beautiful, head-on + candid images, that showcase everything our company is made of. For this, we are infinitely grateful.

Working with Pablo was amazing!!!!! He was so fun to work with and he was affordable!!!! We just had a baby so my now husband and I were on a tight budget. We couldn't find any photographers with decent prices, then I found Pablo!!! He's such a love to work with and he really helped keep a some what stressful day fun and light. What I have seen so far of the pictures is amazing and I will definitely be using him again in the future!! His assistant was great too!!!

With Chuck Nacke, you will experience a true professional from your first contact through the completion of your photos. Most importantly, you will find that he is a superb photographer, lighting carefully and well, and ensuring that you have numerous excellent photos among which to choose your portrait. I cannot say enough about my experience with Chuck. If he costs a bit more than the other photographers, do not hesitate, his product is well worth it. For a few more details about the experience, Chuck came to my home, set up his gear and backdrops, and allowed me several wardrobe changes. We also did some shots outside and with my puppy Gretel. So besides checking that professional box, I have a wonderful shot of me and my dog that I will treasure for the rest of my life. Oh, and the icing on the cake is that Chuck is a fascinating guy with fantastic life stories. You will feel like a mini-celebrity and really enjoy your time with him.

Christophe was very professional, skilled, and the photos turned out beautifully! I cannot recommend him enough. He made sure we had all the traditional photos for our wedding and also took plenty of candids. He made sure our special day was captured exactly how we remember it. Christophe is by far one of the best photographers I have every worked with!

We needed a photographer to do our wedding ceremony, and came to thumbtack, based on reviews we chose Liesl, it was an amazing choice. Liesl was not only professional, above and beyond accommodating, but when someone is passionate about what they do it is evident and she is a pro! Our photos are more than we had hoped for and if you are choosing between photographers, a choice of Liesl is not only a great one, but one you will be excited and happy about for years to come.

Greg was absolutely phenomenal at our wedding. He managed to take the most incredible photos of every aspect of our wedding day without us even having to feel like we had to "perform" for the camera. He was so easy to work with, took a list of "must have" photos and exceeded our expectations. We will forever remember every detail of our wedding in the most beautiful way thanks to Greg's talent as a photographer.

Tanya was one of the easiest/enjoyable photographers to work with. Our original event got rescheduled last minute and Tanya made herself available for our new event date without a fuss. She delivered a handful of photos the day of the event (last minute request) and delivered the remaining photos in a timely matter. Great quality photos. Would recommend.

Shawn is amazing!!!!! I loved all my pictures! I have had some friends with horror stories about their photographers- taking over 6 months to get their photos and them not even being great quality. You do not have to worry about that with Shawn. Besides engagement photos, I never had professional pictures. Shawn put me at ease even with my high anxiety and not feeling well that day. I had many unexpected moments at my wedding- including my dress zipper breaking! One of the funniest photos is seeing my sisters reaction when the dress broke- Shawn was there for every moment and caught everything on film. I highly recommend her- and she travels!

Trevor was very accommodating with our last minute venue change. 2 weeks before our wedding day we found out our venue had been double booked and we had been bumped. Instead of rescheduling our entire wedding we just opted to move it to The Victoria Inn in Hampton. It was nice to know that we could count on Trevor to be accommodating when everything else was turning into such a mess. He even brought a second photographer because of the venue change! The weather was great and the photos he did turned out beautiful! We are very glad we went with him.

I was in search of high quality headshots for upcoming media and public relations activities for my work. I was so happy to find Rum Doodle and John. Appointment setup was a breeze -- John was fast and accommodating. During our meeting, John quickly asked questions to understand my needs and got right to work. The results were exactly what I needed. Options were provided within 24 hours. John was so great to work with and such a talented photographer (displays of his work are beautiful) that I will consider Rum Doodle for any of my photography needs -- family portraits or business events.

Nelson is an amazing photographer, with a beautiful sense of composition, lighting, and story-telling. All of our pictures turned out wonderful! But what is best about working with Nelson is his sense of joy and happiness, which you can't help but be moved by! My wife is a natural in front of the camera, but I have always felt self-conscious. Nelson was able to get me to relax and just enjoy myself...and the pictures turned out incredible! We did two sessions with Nelson, at two different locations, and he was more than happy to accommodate our needs. We can't recommend him enough!

Sarah photographed my outdoor fall wedding and I can't recommend her enough. I think as a bride, the best people to hire are the people you won't need to worry about. Sarah was punctual, responsive and had an incredibly fast turn around with the photos. They all came out SO amazing. She took two awkward unphotogenic people and provided us with a collection of photos where not only do we want to hang something up, but we're having trouble deciding which one. A++++++

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.
