Ray Alvarez is an amazing photographer and human being, and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a fantastic wedding photographer! My dad found him on Thumbtack, and I spoke to him on the phone and we set up a Skype meeting (our wedding was in Upstate New York, closer to where he is located, but we live in Connecticut). Ray video chatted with my whole family, my then fiancé, and me, and we were all blown away by the work that he showed us, as well as his personality. We met with a couple other photographers, but all decided that Ray would by far be the best choice. We hired him with quite a ways to go before the wedding, but he would periodically check in with us (via Facebook, text, email) just to see how we were: we loved that! He and his assistant Brandon (who is wonderful too, by the way) did an engagement shoot with us in the spring and did such a great job capturing the relationship that my husband and I have. We had so much fun, and Ray had a lot of great ideas for photos, and was willing to try any ideas that we had as well. The day of the wedding, Ray and Brandon showed up early in the day so that they could capture the whole process of getting ready for our big day. It was such a pleasure to have them there for our whole wedding; the before, the ceremony, the cocktail hour, the reception, and even afterwards (my husband and the groomsmen jumped in the lake in their rented tuxes, and Ray got some great shots of that as well)! We are so impressed with all of the gorgeous pictures taken that day and I am so glad that we chose Ray Alvarez Wedding Photography to capture the most important day of our lives!

I've worked with a few photographers on Thumbtack and Thomas has definitely been amongst the best! He was punctual, professional, and true to his word. His work quality was amazing and when I'm in his area again putting on an event, he will be the first person I call! You should do the same.

Getting good pictures of our 2.5 yr old twins can be a difficult thing, when they don't want to sit still or smile at the camera (at the same time anyway). We used Kidd Media Productions for a 30 minute mini session at a Christmas Tree Farm and they were very patient and understanding with the boys, even putting videos of Thomas the Train near the camera to make one of them smile. As a result of this patience, we received some great photos for our Christmas cards this year. I would definitely recommend them to anyone else looking for a photographer, especially if they have young children.

Josh shot me working with my clients for my website and print advertising. He was truly outstanding. I work with infants and mothers, and he was calm and unobtrusive - really able to capture the magic of our session as though he wasn't even there. Not easy to do with sensitive, curious babies as the subject! I liked him so much I re-hired him to shoot a family get together, and his candids were amazing. He trailed us as we had our afternoon and shot us "documentary" style. Some of the moments he 'caught' spoke so deeply to me that I wept when I saw them. And artistically speaking, I'm no expert, but every image has so much balance as far as composition and colors that they are so pleasing. And yet somehow he also seems to pull these surprise moments out of thin air. You can see on his website - funny, amazing images that just kind of catch you. Also, Josh is so professional - he responds to emails right away, he edits and returns the photos so quickly. I've had other experiences with photographers that have been a nightmare! I recommend Josh wholeheartedly for any commercial or personal photography you might need.

We loved working with Selwyn! He definitely has an eye for photography and it's so awesome to witness his creativity come to life! He had a vision for what he wanted to see, and it's amazing, just by seeing the photos. He also was so open about new ideas and saw what we had in mind and took it into consideration! We definitely would love to do another booking with him!

Treva is awesome, creative and one time i took pictures of her taking pictures because I appreciate so much the level on intense focus she brings while allowing me to relax and bring my best. She is also so very affordable - it works well for me but her quality of work deserves a higher premium :)

In my case, creating a visual that transforms an extremely mundane product making it unique and beautiful requires a talented photographer. It’s all about the image. Getting a prospective client to stop turning the page or stop clicking the mouse is the only way to get ahead of your competition. The images that Greg took for my product were able to bring the concepts in my mind to life. Without the details you see in his photography, the time invested would have been time wasted. The photographer has to “get it” in order to have the product jump off the page and into the viewers mind. Fortunately, Greg “gets it”.

Stephen did a fantastic job photographing or wedding. Not only were we thrilled with the results, we were also impressed with his patience and professionalism. He was adaptable when members of the wedding party were running late, and was able to get all of the shots we had originally asked for. He stayed at the reception well into the night and made sure we were updated on his progress with editing. All in all, Stephen is a great choice for a wallet-friendly wedding photographer.

I’ve been fortunate enough to have Danielle photograph personal pictures (for multiple years in a row) of my family along with her being the photographer at my brothers wedding. Every single experience has been amazing. Danielle is personable and professional; she is open to any suggestions but also comes fully prepared with ideas for poses and the best spots for pictures at each venue. She even manages to capture those special moments without being invasive. She is simply the best!!

I always look forward to working with Travis. First and foremost the final products, both videos and photographs, are of the utmost quality; he always captures the best shots!! He’s professional, clearly educated on his equipment and the latest technology and he is artistic as well, with a great eye. Travis is always my top choice when it comes to who I’d want to shoot my videos and photographs!

Wendy is amazing at photography and catching those perfects moments, and even more so is a true artist when it comes to digital imaging and enhancments to get the best picture quality possible. Lets not rule out the amazing customization she can do to virtually give you exactly what your looking for in your photos. As a mother herself she is amazing at shooting toddlers, children, and family portraits. Looking at some of her other photos she is indeed good with wildlife and outdoor shots along with sports and music venues. her wedding photos are amazing as well. I will use her time and time again.

Michael Jennings is a wonderful photographer. He offers a comfortable atmosphere and throws some humor in there as well. He is fun and really passionate about photography. He makes his clients feel and look amazing through the lens and captures the essence of the projects he works on perfectly! I couldn't think of a better photographer for your next event. He will make you laugh and you will love the photos he produces. He puts a lot of time and effort into making sure that every photo is perfect and that the client is completely satisfied.

    Doreen has taken pictures of my daughter, my dog and my wedding! She caught photos of each occasion that will be moments that can never be replayed but caught in a photo to be remembered forever! My husband and I are truely blessed to know and have Doreen as our photographer. With the pictures of my daughter she took showed details and aspects surrounding my daughter but had a great focus her smile, her wrinkled nose her few teeth everything was brought out in the photos. Doreen helped me with what she may wear that could accent her bright blue eyes and yet to be able to stand out from the nature around her. With the photos of my dog she caught silly moments of him running around and checking out the other farm animals. To catch the moment of curiousity was priceless! The best photos that I am so grateful for was having Doreen as our photographer for our wedding. She set up a check list to ask what I wanted and what I may have forgotten. When the crazy day came she was there and flexiable with accomidating what was occurring and also helped out by organizing other things when my head was in the clouds from the happiness and craziness. Just as the day was ending and all the pictures we agreed upon and many more candid and more, the sun started to set, she was first to notice. The day was suppose to be high winds and hail, having a sunset was a true blessing and to capture that moment with my husband was awesome! I can't not wait to have Doreen take more pictures of my family and maybe some singles of me to feel get my sexy back and give me more self confidence! Because her pictures bring out every beautiful aspect of a person caught at just the right angle!

    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.
