The entire experience with Mary was really great from start to finish. She was friendly, professional and most importantly, genuinely passionate about what she was doing. Mary was punctual and she was immediately polite, reassuring and excited. We took plenty of photos at City Hall, while walking to the subway, during the ride and then finally at Central Park with some great fall colours in the background. The pictures came out great and we loved talking to Mary and Ali, who were courteous and professional at all times. Mary was really generous with her pricing and took into account the fact that it was just my wife and I. Unlike a lot of quotes from other photographers, hers was one of the few that really reflected this fact. We highly recommend Mary.

If you are in the need for a event photographer - look no further. Words cannot describe what a pleasure it was working with Maria Vullo for our Baby Shower. I wish we had found her sooner for our other photography needs throughout the years. She arrived at the event early, took various types of photos (poses, candid, decor). I cannot think of one moment at the event when I did not see Maria taking photos. On the dance floor, as guests arrived, and anytime the couple needed a photo with someone. Rest assured you are in great hands with Maria Vullo. Photos arrived via link the very next day. Do you know how amazing it is viewing and sharing photos from an event in less than 24 hours? We cannot recommend Ms. Vullo enough - and her pricing was perfect. If you are having an event, we encourage you to book her!

Stop wasting your time looking for other photographers—Lizzie is your girl! She produced incredible photos (much more than we were expecting), had a great location recommendation, and she was just generally a pleasure to work with. I couldn’t recommend her more and I personally can’t wait for my next excuse to hire her again!

We hired Marijana to take photos of our wedding ceremony at the NYC City Hall. She was a true pleasure to work with - very patient throughout the entire (lengthy) process, and even willing to cross the Brooklyn Bridge for some post-wedding shots with the NY skyline. Marijana doesn't have years of professional training or experience, but she has a good eye and you can tell she's very passionate about her work and relationships with her clients. To me, that is really the difference between Marijana and other photographers!

I would highly recommend hiring this photographer for any event. He was professional and so reliable, even in the middle of a snowstorm. He took beautiful pictures capturing my twin babies for their first birthday party. He photographed the venue, the decorations, my guests, the entertainment and all of the interactions that took place in between. He was discreet, while being everywhere that my family was, photographing all of the special moments that went on during the party. I am beyond happy that I found this photographer and would use him again.

Tina and I had a 90-minute headshot session at the International Center of Photogrsphy in midtown Manhattan. I asked Tina to engage a makeup artist to prepare me for the shoot; while I think she did a good job, she could not stay for the shoot itself. The last two photographers with whom I have worked had theirs stay for the duration, and it was helpful to have the makeup rechecked and touched up - especially for a woman my age. I think Tina is a really good photographer - and an artist in her own right. But sometimes her focus on expression and composition means that she doesn’t always see the details of her subject. There were numerous shots that she selected for my review that I couldn't use because a stray lock of hair was falling into my eye. I am not the one looking through the lens, and I can't see what the photographer does. One word, and I could easily have fixed it. We also spent the majority of the session with me wearing the same blouse - even though we had selected 2 additional wardrobe changes. As a result, the number of usable photos in those two changes was somewhat limited. We did come up with a number of really good headshots; Tina retouched my favorites herself, and I am having two of them reproduced as I write this. I appreciated the energy and encouragement that Tina brought to her work, and I would recommend her work to my fellow actors.

I loved every minute of my session with Philicia. I'm a tough critic when it comes to my pictures because I've taken pictures with a lot of photographers, but she was the best photographer I've ever had by far. Not only was she great at giving suggestions but she also combined both of our visions which seems to be really hard for photographers. It's either they don't give any direction at all or they overpower you with their suggestions, but Philicia did neither. She was the perfect balance. I didn't even know my pictures could come out so great! It was truly art. My portraits came out BEAUTIFULLY! My family loved them and I wouldn't shoot portraits with anyone else. She was simply wonderful and I can't wait to shoot again. My birthday's coming up and already we're thinking of great locations and outfits. I'm so excited to do more!

I used Digital Merit Photography for my mother's retirement party. They were on time and they were extremely nice!! They took way more photos than were expected! He literally went out of his way to make sure we were satisfied before we paid. Every time I contacted him with a question, he made sure that everything we needed was taken care of! The quality of the pictures were excellent, and he went above and beyond what was expected of him. He left such a lasting impression that I will recommend him to anyone who is looking for a photographer for their event. I literally wish there were more businesses out there who took customer service and client satisfaction as serious as this company!!! Thanks Hassan!! You are the best!

Alex came to shoot a private speaking event and cocktail reception for our tech company and did a fabulous job. He is extremely tentative to detail and ensuring we gets all the right shots we are looking for. He also was fabulous to work with while my team is based on the west coast and flew in day of for our event. Photos were received promptly after the event and were great quality. Would definitely hire again for all my NYC events.

I hired Mark as my photographer for my sister’s surprise birthday party, and I’m so glad that I did. Mark came a little earlier than expected that way he wasted no time preparing and setting up all his camera equipment. My pictures came out so crisp and stunning and due to Mark having any piece of equipment he’d need for my event. He was very polite to all of my party guests, and was really patient with everyone so he can take all of their pictures, even the ones that were a little more camera shy LOL! Throughout the night, he’d even show me the images taken so far and made sure that I liked them. That made me really pleased to know he wanted to make sure to get any kind of shot I wanted. My final pictures came out beautiful, looked SUPER professional, and sent to me by the next day! If you’re looking to hire a photographer for your event too, Mark is definitely the guy to impress you!

If I could give Micheal 10 stars I would. Words cannot express how pleased we were with his professionalism and eye for detail. We will, definitely, keep him in mind for any future events. The photographs he captured of my quiet little shower have been the talk of my friends for the past week. During his time with us it was almost as if he wasn't there. His super stealth mode allowed us to comfortably and candidly be ourselves allowing him to capture our genuine and posed moments with grace. The pictures were processed quickly and easily downloaded from the links provided with many options to choose from. I was also happy to see he isn't one of those photographers that ruins every photo with a tacky company watermark logo. Courtesy, professionalism, and kindness from start to finish. We're lucky to have found him.

Such a talented photographer! So happy that she was the one who shot my Son's birthday party … I have no words to describe how much my wife love those photos! We have gotten so many compliments on them too. She is very professional and got along with everyone just great! She is truly passionate/loves what she does and that comes through in the quality of her work.

Great person and a very skilled photographer. On time, very respectful and genuine. I thought I was asking for too much because once we finished one pose/location, I requested to do/go to another one. I felt bad a kept apologizing for it, but Nick never complained. He always said "oh no problem". I could not have been more pleased with the final photos.

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.
