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!

Joe was extremely professional and responsive. I have worked with many photographers before and Joe was definitely the most "on-top-of-it"! Besides being easy to work with, the work product was amazing. Very clear and professional head shots. The subjects of his photos said he made them feel comfortable.

I hired Lizzie for my sons birthday party along with the hopes of taking family photos. She was so nice and flexible on everything. My guests loved her (before they saw any pictures) and were thinking of hiring her solely based on personality. At the end of the party it unfortunately started raining which put a damper on our family photos, she was so gracious to offer to come back another day to take them. Now fast forward to today. The pictures arrived within 48 hours and they turned out great! I've had people tell me her photos came out better than their wedding photos that they spent tons of money on. I am very pleased with her work and I plan to hire her going forward! Thank you Lizzie for making my sons birthday memorable!

Tina did an outstanding job taking photos at our 60th Wedding Anniversary celebration. The quality of the photos were sharp and the lighting she used gave a very natural color to the pictures. Furthermore the expressions that she was able to capture on our guests faces was remarkable. Looking through the pictures we were able to relive the celebration and experience the enjoyment of the event. She is easy to work with, flexible and has a wonderful attitude and personality. She is very artistic and is a talented photographer. We are very pleased that she took the photos at our event and would use her again if the opportunity arose.

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!

Alex could not have been a better photographer for our engagement. He was on-time, polite, responsive, and most importantly, got amazing shots of the proposal. He was able to give us edited photos by the end of the day. I know I will be using him for future events.

Chris was an absolute joy to work with. He made me feel so comfortable in front of the camera; I wasn't self conscious at all. He is very friendly and keeps conversation flowing, capturing your natural self, so your head shots and portraits don't look fake or staged, but like the best version of you. I use the photos he took as my professional acting headshots, and I continually receive compliments on how well shot they are and how well they capture my personality. I would recommend him to everyone I know–for professional headshots as well as family, wedding, or any kind of shoots!

Mark was an exceptional videographer for our wedding. He arrived before our wedding ceremony began and stayed until the end of our reception. You honestly could not tell that he was there because he was extremely inconspicuous throughout the day. He produced a high quality long and short video of the best day of our lives. Mark even edited the short video based on our preference to add our wedding vows and the cake cutting. He did this without hesitation or opposition. I would most definitely recommend using Mark as your videographer for any special event of your life. He will capture the important highlights throughout the event and provide a high quality video. Thank you Mark! Lisette & Dwayne

Danielle was our wedding photographer. We hired her to photograph for the duration of the pre-wedding, ceremony, and reception (6 hours). She was prompt and on time and a pleasure to work with the entire time. She accommodated all family photos requested and was discreet about taking photographs during the ceremony and reception. We were looking for impromptu and natural photographs and I'm sure that is what we will receive. We have not seen the proofs yet, but I'm sure we will be happy with the results. I would highly recommend her services.

It is hard to put into words how talented Joe is but I will try my very best. Keyz 2 Life was recommended to me by a friend for my wedding. On short notice, he stepped into my life as a photographer and left as a friend. Joe jumped in with both feet and left everyone amazed by his skill, professionalism, personality and attention to time and detail. My day ran smoothly and he just shot as the day moved on. My wedding pictures were so natural, emotional and honest! I show them off any chance I can get! I will be using Keyz 2 Life for any life event that I want documented by photo.

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!

Hector did an amazing job with our wedding photography and saved the day as I found him here on Thumbtack 2 months before our big day (I was lucky - don't wait that long!). This was a double wedding with two couples involved and so double the work/photography needed. Hector showed nothing but enthusiasm from the start! Communication with him is quick - email, phone, and even texts. He worked literally all day - 9am til after midnight - taking shots at multiple locations of both brides and both grooms getting ready, the ceremony, limo pics, outside shots including all 3 families, the reception, and more. He is truly a professional knowing just how to angle and light a picture to make it stand out. He even visits the locations in advance so that he knows where to take the pictures before the big day - truly above and beyond what most photographers would do. In just about 3 weeks, all 1300+ pics were already uploaded on his website to view (and download with a secured pin number he emails you). Prior to that, he uploaded a sampling of the pictures to his Facebook page as a teaser (definitely check his FB page out and follow him!) And the price? He worked within our budget and is more than fair, especially given the quality and quantity of the photographs. You can tell Hector is passionate about his work and that he truly cares for those he is working for. I would definitely hire Hector again in the future without hesitation!

Emily photographed my NYC rooftop wedding and was simply AMAZING from beginning to end. She is really detail oriented and surpassed all of my expectations. She is even an expert in Photoshop which came in handy because my brother in law had his eyes closed during most of our family photos. It sounds funny, but she able salvage our family photo by swapping his head out with an image where he didn’t blink…. at no additional charge : ) Just a glimpse into my experience with Emily: A few weeks before the wedding, she proactively created an itinerary for the wedding day to ensure that everything would be captured during the timeframe that I hired her for. This was a complete game changers and everything was organized on my wedding day. I also wanted to note that Emily arrived early on my wedding day and took the time to capture every single detail of my dress, invitation, wedding jewelry, shoes, ect. She was simply a delight to work with. My guests and I loved her sweet personality and quick wit! A few hours after my wedding, Emily sent me a text and an email with a few sneak peek photos that highlighted my wedding. The pictures came out beautiful! I am very happy with the results. I can’t say enough great things about her!

Lucy T saved the day in a pinch for my niece’s recent 2nd birthday when my sister’s photographer had to cancel last minute. She’s so personable and, being an aunt herself, really knew how to work a room of little ones and make them smile making photos we will cherish. We will definitely hire again to capture all of our precious moments.

My husband and I were in a frantic to find someone to take professional pictures for our courthouse wedding and it was extremely stressful as we only needed someone for a few hours rather the package deal so many others offered which was unnecessary for a 10 min court house wedding ceremony. While searching on Thumbtack, the first person to message me was Ji. He was so polite and professional upon initial conversation yet reasonable too. Through checking others, I kept coming back to Ji. He was the only real professional while sesrching on Thumbtack.. Upon calling Ji, i explained to him that I only needed someone for a few hours. He assured me how the process, pictures, contract and ideas for pictures would be done. Weddings are already stressful so it was a sigh of relief to deal with Ji. He shared his portfolio and information to get an idea of his work and he was so calm, yet professional and knowledgeable about his work and art where you can see he is passionate and dedicated to his craft. Its not just a job for him but what he enjoys doing, which was satisfying to know. On my wedding day, April 6th 2018, Ji was prompt, punctual and extremely professional. Although my family members were bidding to get pictures, Ji owned his place and took beautiful pictures more than what i expected to be honest. He instructed positions, stances and suggested scenes for the pictures, which was helpful and awesome as I was anxious on my special day. Everything ran smoothly and finished in the alloted time we agreed. Ji was kind enough to send a few edited pictures on the same day which is usually unheard of as normally photographers are busy, but Ji was so kind enough to go out of his way just to make me happy and I was excited to see them. It took only 2 days for the remainder pictures plus Ji is giving me 10 printed 8 by 10 pictures which is included. That is so awesome and appreciative. Personally, I would highly recommend Ji gir any future events or to anyone seeking a professional photographer who knows how to take good photographs for their special events, who is reasonable, punctual and actually makes you a priority as a customer. I really couldn't ask for more and I am so thankful I gave Ji the opportunity for my wedding.

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.
