"Austriya Photo took beautiful pictures on our wedding day, and the value you get for your money is just incredible: Expert photographers all day for a really low price. We had an engagement shoot as part of our package, which was really helpful in getting to understand their style, and for just learning in general how to have pictures taken of us. We got more comfortable making suggestions, creative in interpreting their ideas, and more willing to try new things. If we were uncomfortable trying something, they didn't push us at all. On the wedding day they were totally prepared for every eventuality. Austriya's head hung out with me for getting-ready photos, while his assistant was with the groom. They seemed to have our shot lists and timelines memorized because they nailed everything. They also had all kinds of supplies for keeping us looking our best. We didn't have any spinach-teeth but I have no doubt they had floss just in case. They were always available to run over to take a group shot on request, but otherwise were completely unobtrusive, especially during the ceremony. One particularly difficult set of shots was trying to get all 100 guests into one picture. Getting our families to do anything coordinated is like herding cats, so I was super impressed that austriya's photographer managed to get everyone in the picture, and everyone looking nice! There was also a lot of creativity going into the "detail" pictures, and efficient use of time: They used the light and nice features of my parents' house to take pictures of my dress on a hanger, and my jewelry and shoes, while I did my sister's makeup. They took pictures of the rings and invitations while the groomsmen did some venue setup. One of the ring pictures, I have no idea how they did it--it looks like it was taken in a studio with carefully controlled lighting to make them glow from within against a completely shadowed background. They had our photos ready right on time per the contract. Communication was great too: they put our photos online and mailed the DVD of digitals at the same time. That made them easy to share and make prints of. We're so happy with how they turned out. Our parents apparently carry the albums around to show their friends and co-workers, so that might be a downside? They have their own printing lab and make our wedding album in high quality 7 colour printing with the digital foil embossing in our jewels. - Thanks again Austriya Photo"

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.
