When looking for a wedding photographer I called many photographers in the area, many did not get back to me, many required a consult, and most were very expensive. I just wanted someone that could take pictures of my very simple but very important (to me) event. Just as I was about to give up on photographers I found Jon. He called me back right away and made the booking process very easy, with a quick check to see if he had the date available and thankfully he was! He sent a confirmation email and then confirmed again a week before the wedding. He showed up 30 minutes before the ceremony started to get a feel for the outdoor venue. He introduced himself and was very warm and welcoming. He started taking pictures right away. He took so many pictures of my family, my husband’s family, couples and everyone in attendance; doing a great job of understanding who was who and how they were connected to the bride and groom. An added bonus is that 2 days after the event he had all of the photos emailed to me via dropbox. I couldn’t be happier with the pictures and have received many compliments from family and friends on how amazing they turned out and how pleasant Jon was. He truly captured every moment from the evening, moments I may have missed and also reminders of how wonderful the evening was. These pictures will be cherished for many years to come. I am so thankful that I found Jon and highly recommend him for any event!

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!!!

Outstanding service! This was the first time I've ever taken professional pictures before and I must say I actually don't mind looking at an image of myself now haha. The quality is outstanding! Tom Castles is very professional photographer. He got me to relax from a very tensed state from when I walked in. I highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for professional shots.

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.

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!

We hired Nick to be our wedding photographer and he was amazing! He gathered all the information before the wedding, he thought to ask questions and attend to details I didn't even think about. He was so great during the wedding, he made everyone feel comfortable, joking around. The pictures were creative, we got a variety of posed and candid photos. We absolutely loved having Nick at our wedding and were so impressed with his service. I recommend him without reservations!

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.

My husband and I had a great experience with Deva. An hour of photography made it enjoyable and fun time for us. The pictures of my 3 months old son and then his 1 year old birthday party were just outstanding! Loved them! Deva is very easy going, flexible and does listen to what you want and has her professional opinion and ideas for photography. I'm looking forward to seeing Deva for my son's 2 year old birthday photo session and my husband's and I anniversary !

Elizabeth was amazing to work with from start to finish! She really cared about what my vision was and was very flexible in setting up a time for the photo shoot. It was cold and rainy on the day we planned and she was still willing to meet us and even came up with some great ideas to make the rain part of the whole story. The photos came out beautifully! Elizabeth was a pleasure to deal with and is an extremely talented photographer. I could not recommend her more highly!

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!!

I was completely pleasantly surprised by not only his professionalism, punctuality, but the way he went above and beyond, scouted out the perfect spaces for the brand vision for the perfect photoshoot! He presented the widest array of shots, worked with me to get the aesthetic down to a T he went above and beyond and I would highly recommend him for any photoshoot he is beyond creative and one to watch!!!! I feel very fortunate to have found him and recommend him to anyone looking for a fresh perspective and truly creative outcome!!

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.
