Jonas and Sefa were amazing throughout the whole wedding planning process.. They were both very polite, super organized and professional, always answering questions through email or phone immediately. They made everyone feel comfortable and I really felt like they cared about capturing our big day. It was more than a job to them, they added a personal touch that is so special and amazing. We couldn't have asked for a better team of photographers to capture our beautiful day!!! Would absolutely recommend them again!! Alicia Revare

I had a boudoir shoot and a headshot shoot at Chappell Studios and both were the best experiences I've ever had during a photo shoot. Diane Chappell makes you feel so comfortable the moment you arrive. She takes the time to get to know a bit about you in order to bring out the best you in your photos. It makes a difference when you feel comfortable with the photographer and the results definitely show up in the resulting photos. The studio is so clean and well maintained with a private changing room and lounge area. There is also a wonderful outside area for shooting in natural situations. Diane Chappell is really a great photographer with a great attitude and I would highly recommend Chappell Studios to anyone looking to get great photos.

Lance was great. He was professional and had a great personality. We made a last minute decision to get a videographer for our sons wedding. Lance was so accommodating and helpful. He asked what we had in mind and made us feel at ease that everything would be taken care of, and it was. He blended in with the guests, captured moments we didn't see and ones we will treasure. Lance gave us great shots of family and friends that aren't always captured by the photographers. We were one of the first to have a drone video included. The aerial views were breathtaking. I am so glad we used Lance, he was wonderful and we couldn't be happier with the results.

I write this note as a letter of high recommendation for Angela Schapiro. Her keen eye as a professional photographer was essential to the success of our bicycle race, The 4th Annual Women's Woodstock Cycling Grand Prix 2016, especially in all of our post-event social media and 'thank you' campaigning. Ms. Schapiro's focus on the project was outstanding, in fact as busy as she was she attended all planning meetings for our bicycle race which is one of the top women's-only races in the United States. She made every effort to share with race staff how best to expose a viewer to the imagery that would be long lasting and memorable. And, as a result of her work, we now have use of some of the most compelling photos chronicling a most exciting day of sport and community. Whether action shots of a sporting event or portraiture I will always be the first to highlight and recommend Ms. Schapiro's skill set and craft!! Simply put: She is quite amazing! Thank you very much for your time. Cordially, Martin E.

Stacey recently was my photographer for my wedding. She did an amazing job. She was able to capture the photos I had described to her that meant a lot to me. She worked well with my large wedding party by getting everyone to focus on the picture we were trying to take (even when the younger kids in the party had meltdowns). She handled everything professionally and got the job done. I would definitely use her again for a photo shoot.

Debbie recently photographed our daughter's Bat Mitzvah and we would highly recommend her. She easily moved around the function with our guests, was friendly and nice and took great pictures of the event. She knew what to do and what pictures we would want to have for an album to remember the day. Her price was fair and she sent us all the pictures within a few days of the event. If you are looking for a friendlya and knowledgeable photographer for any party or special occasion Deb is your best choice in the area. Would not hesitate to use her again in the future.

We hired Todd for our wedding and I couldn't have been happier. About two months before our wedding I broke my leg and had to change what I originally wanted to do for the photos. Todd was amazing in finding a location that was so close to our location and easy to travel to for me. They made for some of the most beautiful pictures. He went out of his way and caught photos I don't even remember! I would recommend him to anyone. Thanks Todd for the gorgeous photos!!!

Sootie Studios is run by an absolutely wonderful woman, Meri Belanger. She is the best photographer I have ever been to! Whether it be standing in the snow in the middle of winter, or laying on the ground getting all dirty in the fall, she will do anything to get the right shot. Meri has taken photos of my family and also of me and my boyfriend, and each time it only gets better! She has done my Niece's newborn, 3 month, 6 month, 9 month, 1 year cake smash, and 18 month photos and every time friends of mine ask where I get the amazing photos from. I also did a "trash the dress" photoshoot with my boyfriend which I strongly recommend doing with an old dress because the photos are priceless. Meri also has amazing rates for weddings and regular photo sessions. You won't find the quality photos she takes for the value and price that she offers. She also does memberships which offer many perks, such as getting a 1/2 price session and free prints. If you are looking to get photos done, I would strongly recommend going to Sootie Studios because you can't get a much better deal and photos that you get from Sootie! I would give Sootie Studios a million stars if I could!!!

We haven't received our pictures from Neal yet, but I feel confident about my 5/5 star review from the few he showed us on his camera. Neal was a last minute find for us when I realized that my mother-in-law had put too much thought and effort into our rehearsal dinner to not have professional photos. He hardly asked any questions at all which was Super helpful since our wedding was in a couple of days and we were busy beyond belief when we hired him. He was Amazing at getting everyone's attention for group shots and I feel like he made sure to capture every photo we'd care to have after the event. He came up with some very clever angles and positions. He was also so personable and pleasant to be around. My only regret is that we didn't have him with us for our whole wedding day. Highly recommend!!

Shane was extremely professional, he was able to bring my vision to life and made it an overall excellent experience for me. He made me feel comfortable throughout the entire process. From the beginning, Shane demonstrated a dedication to the project by meeting with me to discuss the shoot beforehand and being open with communication throughout the process, so I felt truly heard. He is a talented photographer, and provides a fun, exciting, comforting and professional environment. The end product was exactly what I wanted, and I am impressed with his talent and skill as a photographer as well as his commitment to making it a memorable experience. He put me at ease, made me laugh, and provided a beautiful final product. I will definitely be recommending Shane in the future.

He was very professional and very comfortable to work around. He made taking pics fun for everybody at my wedding. He did a perfect job editing the pictures and went out his way to make sure I got my pics and sent a preview of pics for me to look at before I received all of them. I would recommend him to anybody who needs a excellent photographer. Definitely gonna book him again!!

Keith was wonderful to work with! He scheduled the family photo shoot with us when it worked best for us and was very flexible. He photographed me, my husband and our 11-month old and was so patient the whole time. It's not easy getting an almost toddler to sit for pictures and he was great! I would highly recommend Keith and Company B Photography!

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.
