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 was beyond a pleasure to work with! She is a seasoned photographer with years of professional experience as well as top of the line equipment and resources. Maria made me feel super comfortable and took her time to walk me through all aspects of the shoot explicitly which made the whole experience an amazing one. I have worked with many photographers for various reasons, and Maria is hands down one of my favorites. I would recommend her services to any and anyone looking to get professional photos taken for any occasion!

Joe Jenkins is an expert in what he does! He was punctual which was extremely important to me being that my event took place near the WTC and it was very early in the morning. He is very thorough, he followed up my phone calls, text messages and emails promptly. He has a very friendly and warm personality (unlike the typical annoying photographers). His quality work speaks volumes! I received outstanding quality images in a timely manner. He is truly a professional and you can tell he works extremely hard (especially behind the scenes) to provide the best images possible.

Jon was an absolutely wonderful photographer for our Sweet 16 Celebration. Extremely professional throughout the experience, from booking to the final moments of the event. Jon followed up with me from first contact, reached out a few days before to confirm details and asked great questions that helped him understand what exactly we were looking for. Our guests all commented on how he conducted himself during our party, he seemed to know exactly where to be at the right time to capture the moments that meant so much...the toddlers playing together, interactions between the guests, moments of laughter, great shots of the teens dancing, etc. Jon works a little bit differently than most photographers I have dealt with in the past. Typically, I found they focused more on selling post-processing and albums, etc. Jon doesn't take this approach. Instead, he captures the event and sends you all of your photos by Dropbox and/or CD. There isn't any extra fees involved AND, due to the fact that he has an amazing eye for capturing moments, you get amazing photos, straight off the camera. I love this approach, since our guest of honor desired to have photos to post on social media as well as print on her own, and wanted to share them with family who were unable to attend the event, there wasn't anything preventing that...or consequently, costing us $$$ to do this. We own the photos and have complete liberty to share them however, wherever. The savings with this approach is tremendous in comparison to the typical contracts photographers offer, and in today's world of digital media, it provides us the format to have every picture available, and allows us to print off physical photos at any photo kiosk we choose. Quite a few guests from our party have contacted me about Jon and are looking for him to capture their events; I know I will not be needing Thumbtack any longer when I need a photographer in the New Jersey area. I cannot say enough about the positive experience and perfect fit we found with Jon for our photography needs.

I don't know where to begin when describing how great Cheyanna is. I researched and spoke with at least a dozen different photographers when planning my surprise engagement photo session and Cheyanna was by far the most professional, talented, and friendly of all of them. She worked with me over several weeks to plan the perfect surprise engagement. She was always responsive whenever I called or texted and always helpful. The quality of her work is unparalleled and my fiancée and I are now ecstatic that our engagement was captured so beautifully. End your search for a photographer, hire Cheyanna.

Never had such authentic and beautiful photos taken of me as those taken by Steve. Ended up paying more to order additional photos, I loved them all so much and could not narrow down to just a few favorites. FYI I am 47 & terribly shy and awkward in front of a camera. Steve was extremely professional, patient and persistent and gave me great direction to get the shots. He has an intuitive instinct, high expectations for his work and the greatest integrity. So much so that at first, the pictures weren't "working" according to him, so he retreated and booked a studio where we got our amazing shots. Most photographers would not have spent the extra time, would have just ploughed through. Not Steve. Consider yourself lucky if you can book with Steve. My guess is he won't be available for thumbtack booking for long. THX Steven!! You are amazing!!!

It was real pleasure to get the images from this company. Hassan is a brilliant photographer and the photos that he took for us in our wedding ceremony came out so vivid and beautiful that I couldn't believe; truly the photos were beyond my expectation. This kind of sincere work and dedication is very rare these days; I honestly recommend this company and Hassan to anyone who are looking for some talented and brilliant photographers for any occasion.

It was great working with Kaddy. I hired her to take photos for my sister's graduation and the photos looked great. She arrived on time (which was important because it was time-sensitive), and was very professional. She got great candid shots of my family as well as posed photos. I would definitely recommend her to someone looking for a photographer :)

Every photo that Lena takes looks gorgeous and it is due to her talent and artistry. So, put down your iPhones​, people.

I have worked with several photographers in the past but have decided to keep going back to Justin. I have done two photoshoots with Justin and was very pleased with the way both sets of pictures came out. He definitely has a good eye for photography - he sees the big picture but also pays attention to the details. He is also a great guy and easy to work with....flexible and responds quickly. I look forward to working with him again.

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!!

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.

Absolutely an amazing photographer! Not only did he come to the beach and take some great shots, he is also a great guy. Had a lot of family and friends ask who the nice guy was and how we met him. Several times I had to explain that he was our photographer. He fit in so well and made everyone feel very comfortable.

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.
