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.

Stop wasting your time looking for other photographers—Lizzie is your girl! She produced incredible photos (much more than we were expecting), had a great location recommendation, and she was just generally a pleasure to work with. I couldn’t recommend her more and I personally can’t wait for my next excuse to hire her again!

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.

We hired Marijana to take photos of our wedding ceremony at the NYC City Hall. She was a true pleasure to work with - very patient throughout the entire (lengthy) process, and even willing to cross the Brooklyn Bridge for some post-wedding shots with the NY skyline. Marijana doesn't have years of professional training or experience, but she has a good eye and you can tell she's very passionate about her work and relationships with her clients. To me, that is really the difference between Marijana and other photographers!

D TRO Padsite Solutions- We worked with Dag on updating the photos for our website to showcase our commitment to our clients in the Oil and Gas business. He was very professional and delivered an excellent set of photos that captured our company and our commitment to customer service. We used him again to capture our Annual meeting this year with great results. It is refreshing when you get to work with someone who knows their trade as well as Dag does and delivers an excellent product on time. I would recommend him for any situation or event where photography is required.

Alex came to shoot a private speaking event and cocktail reception for our tech company and did a fabulous job. He is extremely tentative to detail and ensuring we gets all the right shots we are looking for. He also was fabulous to work with while my team is based on the west coast and flew in day of for our event. Photos were received promptly after the event and were great quality. Would definitely hire again for all my NYC events.

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!

Joe was simply amazing - he came through for us last minute when our other photographer cancelled 2 days before my daughter’s Sweet 16. He took his time and provided great pictures to help us capture the day /memories. We had a few hiccups from other vendors but Joe was patient with us and provided superb service - will most definitely be using him again!

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!

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.
