My wife and I spent a long time researching wedding photographers for our big day. We were very happy to find Mary and Ali. Communication with Mary and Ali was consistent, effective and efficient. Throughout the course of day, they were on time, focused, professional, and attentive behind the lens. Overall, they exceeded our expectation and we would definitely recommend them to our friends. Thank you Mary and Ali!

Maria took some amazing photos at our wedding dinner. She was there early and stayed longer than we expected. It was a tight space but Maria still managed to get great photos of our family and friends. She also has reasonable rates. I highly recommend her for your next event! I will certainly be calling her next time I need a quality photographer. Thank you, Maria!

Jon is an amazing photographer, we had a very small wedding ceremony in our apartment and he still managed to capture the littles details and moments of our wedding. We only hired Jon for one hour because we only had a small ceremony planned but he took 244 high quality pictures that we're very happy with. He was very professional, he was strongly dedicated to the job during the whole time and made my spouse, me and my friends very comfortable while posing for pictures. I'd hire definetely Jon again for any other event and I recommend him. It is worth every penny!

I am SO lucky to have found Cheyanna through Thumbtack! She was not only a joy to work with (very responsive, warm, thoughtful and professional) and a reasonable price - her work is really, truly beautiful. Such a strong sensibility - candid, visceral, organic shots. I really love how our photos turned out and can't wait to share them with everyone. Thank you for making wedding photography such a lovely, stress-free experience Cheyanna! We'd recommend you again and again. XO

Lizzie was so professional and enthusiastic about her work. She was excellent and easy to work with, eager to create a wide variety of great shots with efficient time management, and she delivered high-quality work in a timely manner, all at a great value! Every shot was a 5/5 and beautifully edited. They perfectly captured the rustic early autumn vibe we wanted. We could not have had a better, friendlier, hard-working photographer for our quiet wedding ceremony. Thank you!

Last year, I hired Jeff for my engagement photos, and we loved them, so when it came time to choose a photographer for our wedding, it was a no brainer. Jeff captured the day PERFECTLY and was an absolute pleasure to work with. It's hard for me to pick favorites because I loved every single one of them. Jeff - thank you for helping make our day perfect!

Wow! Philicia is 100% the best photographer my wife and I has ever worked with (including our wedding photographer)! My wife and I have been so busy since we got married with our crazy work schedules but decided to give a gift to ourselves by driving to NY and taking anniversary pictures. I'm so happy we chose Philicia! She made us feel really comfortable and helped us look like a million bucks! We were a little late but Philicia was on time and extremely patient with us! We had fun and we laughed a lot. My wife was all smiles at the end--a great start to our anniversary date! Philicia just sent us a sneak peak of our pictures and we love them!! We can't wait to see the rest! Thank you Philicia! We will definitely hire you if we ever come to NY again!

Bin was fantastic. I hired her for our wedding rehearsal dinner fairly last-minute, and it could not have worked any better. She took great photographs and produced great edits, was very punctual and professional, and everyone spoke very highly of her at the rehearsal dinner. This was my first experience with Thumbtack. My wife and I hired a separate wedding photographer, but I wanted something less formal for the rehearsal dinner. I had a quick chat with Bin beforehand and asked her to focus on natural/candid shots since we had much more formal photos planned for the next day. Bin blew away expectations and fit the bill perfectly. Thanks again!

Kaddy was a real pleasure to work with! I hope to work with her again in future! She is a skilled photographer for sure! An area where she really stands out from other photographers I have worked with is her ability to capture great action shots (in this case of dancers)! She got a lot of really great shots that were very complimentary! (In my experience, folks who try to photograph dancers take a lot of really awkward-looking shots! Not Kaddy!) I recommend her highly!

We got our Wedding Outdoor shoot done from Aditya. Thanks to Aditya that he gave us the best of photos for our Wedding Album. We went with another photographer for the wedding day but it was a total disaster. I really wanted good pictures in my Wedding album. Aditya came as our saviour to do our Outdoor shoot post wedding . I got so many compliments for the outdoor ones than the actual wedding pictures. He is so calm and poised in his work. I love the way he composes the pictures keeping in mind the subject and background. I wish I can upload all the picture here but just uploading few of my favourite ones

My husband and I hired Deva to be our wedding photographer. We couldn’t be happier with how our wedding photos came out. They were gorgeous! She made us look great! My first impression of Deva is friendly, warm, and dependable. Prior to our wedding, Deva spent time visualizing our special day by surveying the place of ceremony, reception venue, plus helping us find charming spots for our wedding portraits. And on the wedding day, in spite of the heat and humidity Deva worked really hard for us. Our guests commented how professional and dedicated Deva was. Deva also shot our beautiful engagement portraits. She went above and beyond to make sure we had a wide variety of poses/backdrops to choose from and that the lighting for each shot was perfect. We had a lot of fun during our engagement photo shoot! All we can say is we loved working with Deva and we love her work!

Justin was great to work with!! He was very responsive to all of my emails and did a fabulous job photographing my event. He took a ton of pictures but never was in the way. He sent the pictures the next day and they were fabulous. I know it’s hard to find an affordable photographer and it’s hard to trust someone with an important day but I am so glad I booked Justin. He arrived on time and was very accommodating to all of my guests wants. I highly recommended him. You won’t be disappointed if you book his services!

Michael is incredibly professional, and I highly recommend him! We needed a photo for our wedding invitation. He picked a great spot in St.Pete that offered us a lot of backgrounds to choose from. He let us be completely natural with each other, took over a hundred pictures, and had them ready the very next day! Our only problem is choosing a picture, there's so many that we like! I've already gotten several complements from family and friends. You won't be disappointed!

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.
