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.

If you are looking for an incredible photographer then look no further. I am absolutely thrilled to give John a wonderful review because he did such an amazing job at our party. He came on time, explained the whole process, stayed out of the way and caught the most amazing moments I've ever seen. He did everything from poses to journalistic style photos capturing the essence of the party. He's truly an excellent professional and photographer. Thank you John, we will make sure to use you again in the future!!!

Steven was the ideal photographer for me to work with! I had NEVER taken headshots beyond what was required for the high school yearbook 5 years ago and he truly made me feel at ease. He was late for our shoot appointment but he was extremely apologetic and generously offered me additional re-touched photos in order to make it up to me - which I truly appreciated. The photos ended up coming out FANTASTIC and I'm already using my professional shot for all my networking/Linkedin/email/Slack purposes! For the price, you really cannot find a more personable and professional photographer for whatever style of photograph you are going for.

I have shot with Tom on several occasions, all of which have produced high quality images. The environment he creates is relaxed and comfortable, all while being very professional. He is a photographer that is very diligent, professional and personable. I would highly recommend Tom to anyone looking for refined images.

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.

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.

Justin gets all of our accolades! Absolutely fabulous and talented photographer to work with! He covered our wedding; Church ceremony as well as the reception at the Waterside restaurant on the Hudson overlooking Manhattan. The photos are magical! He arrives early to scout out each location well before the participants and guests arrive. His framing and composition great, imaginative. And one of the most impressive of his aspects is the talent to blend in with everybody unobtrusively, comfortably! You almost don’t realize you've got a photographer snapping away at your event! After printing all of the photos, the colors are all nice and saturated and there’s a great selection, he accommodated all of our photo requests and a lot more! This guy is the best! 10x star review from a very rough critic who happens to be in the business, I’m a film editor! Thanks Justin!

Bill was awesome to work with ! The whole vibe of the shoot was amazing. He was able to capture and create stories in my pictures which as an actress, is exactly what I wanted. His critique was informative and relatable. His energy was fun and spontaneous. He taught me ways to help myself stand out which I truly appreciated. He took his time, took risks and was smart with his shooting. He tries to accommodate exactly what you want as the model and gave purposeful feedback For the best possible outcome. He is hands down the best photographer I've worked with so far. My pictures are professional and everyone loves them ! I have gotten so much work because of bills photos. Bill knows the business and he knows the camera. If you have the opportunity to work with bill DO IT!!

Working with Nick was great. He was flexible with our schedule (we were flying in from out of town) and met us for both an 'engagement' shoot in Hoboken and for our small backyard wedding in Bergen County. He delivered a quality product on both occasions and was refreshingly responsive. We provided input on what kind of photos (candid/posed/creative photos) and they came out wonderfully. This was our first experience with a professional photographer and we had some hesitation because my brother's wedding photos last year with a different vendor did not come out well, but Nick delivered! He didn't even get too skiddish with the dog that attended the wedding. Thank you for the photo memories!

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.
