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.

We hired Emily to photograph my wife's party at a private venue downtown and she did an incredible job. Not only was the communication fantastic when we first hired her, but she checked in the day before to confirm, showed up early, and interacted wonderfully with our guests. We thought we only wanted candid shots of our guests, but at Emily's suggestion we posed for a few individual and couple photographs before the event and they wound up being some of our favorites. She even coordinated a group shot with the DJ. We had our pictures edited and in a dropbox within 48 hours of the event's conclusion. Will certainly call on Emily again next time we have an event.

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.

I had a very good experience working with Bin. She did a good job following instructions and focusing on photos of key family members while also making sure she included everyone throughout the event. The photos were very nice, high quality and sent over to me very quickly after the event.

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!

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!

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!

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!

I am the owner of an event planning agency, and I recently hired Daniel to document our Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. We provided him with a shot list including, decorations, candid shots and posed group photo's. He was very attentive, and got all of the pictures we needed plus more. He is one of the most ambitious and talented young photographers that we have worked with in a long time. I would strongly recommend him to anyone seeking an event photographer.

We absolutely loved our entire experience with Natalia. She responded very quickly, and stayed in touch after we confirmed the booking, sending us suggestions for the locations, and inquiring about our ideas and themes for the shoot. Her communications before the meeting show her genuine interest in ensuring her clients get what they want and need out of the shoot. It was very easy to spend an hour with Natalia, while taking pictures. There were no awkward moments, and the setting for the photos happened very naturally. Natalia is also really great at giving you a quick sneak peek at the photos during the session, that way if you see that you loved the composition, but hate your face or pose in it, you can quickly re-do it. No later than 12hrs after the shoot, Natalia responded with 120 proofs, of which we could choose 40 to be retouched, and available for download. She returned the final, downloadable photos 3 days after we finalized our selection, which is super fast for photographers. Because Natalia lets you peek at the photos during the shoot and select your favorites out of the preselected 120, you end up with 40 photos that you absolutely love, and you can use all of them (no blinking or hair in your mouth). Overall, we highly recommend Natalia for her professionalism and great photo quality, and hope to have a chance to work with her again!

Robert Mitchell is a total professional. I required a few head shots for my Linked-in page as well as a new business-related website I'm developing. Good portrait photography is not merely a matter of pushing a button, but requires capturing something ephemeral that reflects an individual's persona. Robert instantly put me at ease and even made the sitting enjoyable as he snapped away while we talked. An hour or so later, I had at least half-dozen high-quality portraits of myself that totally pleased me and were absolutely spot-on for my needs . On the basis of my experience, I would highly recommend IPI Event Photography to others.

My daughter's surprise engagement was originally set for October 9th in St. Augustine...then hurricane Matthew struck. We had to cancel and move everything to St Petersburg beach literally overnight. Michael stepped up and extended an event saving hand without a moments hesitation. He was on time and made everyone completely comfortable as he masterfully produced an AMAZING shoot. His beautiful photography brought tears to family members eyes. If you are looking for the finest photographer for any event...look no further... Michael Oliver (Oliver Photography) is SIMPLY THE BEST! Thank you Michael

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.
