Mary and her partner took excellent photographs, and for the price, it was truly an exceptional value! Some of the photos were truly artistic. I feel I need to put it some constructive criticism for shooting a religious wedding. First let me reiterate how incredibly NICE Mary and her partner were! However, she stood in the aisle at the front of the Church for nearly the entire duration and it was highly inappropriate for a Catholic wedding. Even though Mary and her partner were professional photographers who gave us a terrific product, it was commented on by many at the service, including the priest how disruptive it was to wear such casual clothing, and to stand near the alter even when not taking photos. Mary and her partner have TREMENDOUS TALENT, and are extremely nice, but you must instruct them on proper protocol at a Church wedding, and how a Catholic wedding is a reverential event, and they must not stand in the aisle for the duration, nor take photos so close to the priest when he is saying prayers. Although I remember none of it, of course, I watched a video, and yes, it was intrusive. But they are GREAT photographers & of course they will learn about religious weddings going forward. Highly recommend! Will use them again!

I hired Joe to take headshots and images of myself that I needed for my own company website. From the start and throughout the organizational aspect of getting this arranged and letting him know what I was looking for (in terms of images) he was uber professional and responsive. He responded to all my questions and offered professional advice. On the day he was on time, efficient and a pleasure to work with. The whole thing took much less time than I anticipated and the end result was fabulous. All the pictures are fantastic. In my experience I don't usually like all the end products but in the case of Joe there is nothing I could fault. His turnaround time from taking the pictures to getting them complete to me was very, very quick too. Just wish I had known Joe earlier and that this should be the experience when paying for a professional photographer! Will be using him again in the future for my needs.

Emily exceeded our expectations. This was our first time using Thumbtack to hire a photographer and she lived up to all of the rave reviews. We got the images needed and she was quick to follow up on all the details. Some creative surprises delighted us too. See her work on our Instagram at modernshelving.

First off I would start by saying that my photographer from this point on will be Hassan! He will become a part of my family's memories. His punctuality, professionalism, kindness and most importantly his desire to give his client the best photos and experience (he even through in a short video!!!!) are second to none!! He pays close attention to detail, I don't believe Hassan took a break during our 4 hours of partying, he was mobile the entire time ( not to mention that there were nearly 100 teenagers at that party!) also, my event was to start at 8pm, Hassan was at my venue before I arrived in order to prepare himself ( I give him so much credit for that, the venue was over a two hour drive for him) with that being said, I would recommend Hassan to anyone needing a professional photographer!!! And wait..... pricing? You will definitely not be disappointed!!! He aims to please in every way!!!! Thank you so much Hassan!

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!

I think Nick did a great job and he exceeded my expectations which isn't easy to do. I didn't know what to initially expect being that I had never hired a professional photographer before, but it was a pleasureable experience over all. He made our surprise engagement on the Brooklyn Bridge a memorable moment. Thanks Nick.

I searched for a photographer online and did my research by looking at reviews as well as the websites of several photographers. I was impressed with Jovana’s photos on her website so I booked her for headshots as well as some dance poses. I’m so glad I did all that because Jovana was an absolute pleasure to work with. So professional and made me feel at ease. The images came beautiful and I have so many great shots to choose from. I couldnt be happier!

Amazing photographers. We had Roge and Fernando cover our rehearsal dinner, and the entire wedding day. We received the wow photos the day after the wedding, and they look amazing! We highly recommend working with Roge and Fernando. They are incredibly kind, talented, communicative, and will make sure that good photos happen!

Spike took our Engagement photos in Central Park last week, and the experience couldn’t be any better! We originally had a different date and plan in mind. But Spike was flexible and accommodated the changes in our plan. During the day of the shoot, Spike made us very relaxed. We felt at ease with his presence. He gave us directions on poses, but made sure we were comfortable with them. Spike also knows the park well, taking us to a number of his favorite locations. He was also open to our suggestions on shooting locations. We received the photos within a week of our shoot. My fiancée and I are very happy with them. They look amazing and I’m sure the photos will be our treasured memories in the years to come. One last note, we’ve reached out to a number of photographers, both on Thumbtack and elsewhere. Spike’s rate was very reasonable, especially more so now that we’ve received the photos and gone through the experience. Overall, I would not hesitate to recommend Spike for your photo needs!

To have Mark as my photographer was a very satisfiying experience. Anywhere from his punctuality to his professionalism, he truly couldn’t have made me more pleased. My final photos came out better than imagined and exceeded all expectations. I wish my iPhone took photos like that, but I understand now the quality a “good photo” has to have because of Mark’s.

Kate is a consummate professional. Punctual, fast, and friendly, not only did she provide great photos, she proposed slight staging tips and worked with what I had to make my apartment look even better. I scoured many other photographers' portfolios prior to working with Kate and I feel I made the right choice given her keen eye and extensive experience with real estate in particular.

Deva was the best photographer I have ever worked with! We are from MI and came here to NY to have our wedding in Central Park. Deva was amazing!! So patient and so professional. I couldn't of ask for anything better. Deva you made this day so perfect for me. Also my husband and family. You knew I was under somewhat of stress from the wedding day, to being out of state, and just dealing with family.. You knew how to keep my smiling! Thank you so much for making this day so perfect and special.

Michael is a very talented and dedicated photographer. He understands the client's needs and produces quality and wonderful results. He was the photographer for our non for profit organization Gala. He was non-intrusive to our 200+ guests and floated through the crowd taking portraits and action shots. All of which were spot on in telling the story of our event!

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.
