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 took some amazing photos at our wedding dinner. She was there early and stayed longer than we expected. It was a tight space but Maria still managed to get great photos of our family and friends. She also has reasonable rates. I highly recommend her for your next event! I will certainly be calling her next time I need a quality photographer. Thank you, Maria!

Lizzy was the photographer at me and my husbands wedding last year. Saying she did an impeccable job is an understatement. She was professional, on-time and did an amazing job directing the shoot. Her friendly personality and her ability to listen to our needs made it easy for us to work in unison. The picture quality was perfect and we received our photo's in a couple of days. We love our experience and will be using her over and over again to capture our important moments.

Wow! Philicia is 100% the best photographer my wife and I has ever worked with (including our wedding photographer)! My wife and I have been so busy since we got married with our crazy work schedules but decided to give a gift to ourselves by driving to NY and taking anniversary pictures. I'm so happy we chose Philicia! She made us feel really comfortable and helped us look like a million bucks! We were a little late but Philicia was on time and extremely patient with us! We had fun and we laughed a lot. My wife was all smiles at the end--a great start to our anniversary date! Philicia just sent us a sneak peak of our pictures and we love them!! We can't wait to see the rest! Thank you Philicia! We will definitely hire you if we ever come to NY again!

Tina did an outstanding job taking photos at our 60th Wedding Anniversary celebration. The quality of the photos were sharp and the lighting she used gave a very natural color to the pictures. Furthermore the expressions that she was able to capture on our guests faces was remarkable. Looking through the pictures we were able to relive the celebration and experience the enjoyment of the event. She is easy to work with, flexible and has a wonderful attitude and personality. She is very artistic and is a talented photographer. We are very pleased that she took the photos at our event and would use her again if the opportunity arose.

Bin was fantastic. I hired her for our wedding rehearsal dinner fairly last-minute, and it could not have worked any better. She took great photographs and produced great edits, was very punctual and professional, and everyone spoke very highly of her at the rehearsal dinner. This was my first experience with Thumbtack. My wife and I hired a separate wedding photographer, but I wanted something less formal for the rehearsal dinner. I had a quick chat with Bin beforehand and asked her to focus on natural/candid shots since we had much more formal photos planned for the next day. Bin blew away expectations and fit the bill perfectly. Thanks again!

After posting my (unorthodox) request to Thumbtack, I received a call from Chris within minutes. He presented himself professionally and personable, two things that were important to me due to the nature of the event - a surprise wedding. It was a small affair with 8 people (including Chris) where the groom was completely unaware he was about to get a wedding ceremony and reception put together by his friends (the couple was already married, but did so in a different state on short notice of being engaged so no local friends were able to make it to the wedding, hence a surprise wedding with his closest and local friends). Chris took quick to making great suggestions for the event and worked with us to make sure we captured each moment beautifully. He came prepared, on time, in appropriate attire, with expertise, and a smile. He clearly loves his work, and it shows in the product. Due to the intimate nature of the event, Chris integrated well with the small but diverse group of people, being chatty and comfortable but on point and out of the way when appropriate. He was also knowledgeable and knew important aspects of New York law regarding lighting and standing tripod lights. This kept us from getting in any legal trouble while at the public park in DUMBO, Brooklyn. Chris was also willing to work with us with regard to operating my DSLR camera mounted on a tripod to capture video as he went around taking photos. Editing, delivery, and response time. Chris was able to get back to me most often within minutes of any request, always quick with a confirmation and didn't pester me with constant contact. The turnaround time was fantastic, ten (10) days after the event we have the photos edited and delivered in full, this is also during a holiday weekend. Very impressed with the turnaround given both the holiday and the time of year, I expect he was busy with other clients as well as us. All summed up, positive experience, beautiful photos, professionally presented, no issues with delivery or "holding photos hostage for a higher fee", appropriately priced, and made us all very happy with our decision to hire Chris Waggoner, highly recommend!

Alex could not have been a better photographer for our engagement. He was on-time, polite, responsive, and most importantly, got amazing shots of the proposal. He was able to give us edited photos by the end of the day. I know I will be using him for future events.

Mark was an exceptional videographer for our wedding. He arrived before our wedding ceremony began and stayed until the end of our reception. You honestly could not tell that he was there because he was extremely inconspicuous throughout the day. He produced a high quality long and short video of the best day of our lives. Mark even edited the short video based on our preference to add our wedding vows and the cake cutting. He did this without hesitation or opposition. I would most definitely recommend using Mark as your videographer for any special event of your life. He will capture the important highlights throughout the event and provide a high quality video. Thank you Mark! Lisette & Dwayne

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.

My husband and I hired Deva to be our wedding photographer. We couldn’t be happier with how our wedding photos came out. They were gorgeous! She made us look great! My first impression of Deva is friendly, warm, and dependable. Prior to our wedding, Deva spent time visualizing our special day by surveying the place of ceremony, reception venue, plus helping us find charming spots for our wedding portraits. And on the wedding day, in spite of the heat and humidity Deva worked really hard for us. Our guests commented how professional and dedicated Deva was. Deva also shot our beautiful engagement portraits. She went above and beyond to make sure we had a wide variety of poses/backdrops to choose from and that the lighting for each shot was perfect. We had a lot of fun during our engagement photo shoot! All we can say is we loved working with Deva and we love her work!

Emily photographed my NYC rooftop wedding and was simply AMAZING from beginning to end. She is really detail oriented and surpassed all of my expectations. She is even an expert in Photoshop which came in handy because my brother in law had his eyes closed during most of our family photos. It sounds funny, but she able salvage our family photo by swapping his head out with an image where he didn’t blink…. at no additional charge : ) Just a glimpse into my experience with Emily: A few weeks before the wedding, she proactively created an itinerary for the wedding day to ensure that everything would be captured during the timeframe that I hired her for. This was a complete game changers and everything was organized on my wedding day. I also wanted to note that Emily arrived early on my wedding day and took the time to capture every single detail of my dress, invitation, wedding jewelry, shoes, ect. She was simply a delight to work with. My guests and I loved her sweet personality and quick wit! A few hours after my wedding, Emily sent me a text and an email with a few sneak peek photos that highlighted my wedding. The pictures came out beautiful! I am very happy with the results. I can’t say enough great things about her!

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.
