Joe was extremely professional and responsive. I have worked with many photographers before and Joe was definitely the most "on-top-of-it"! Besides being easy to work with, the work product was amazing. Very clear and professional head shots. The subjects of his photos said he made them feel comfortable.

Stop wasting your time looking for other photographers—Lizzie is your girl! She produced incredible photos (much more than we were expecting), had a great location recommendation, and she was just generally a pleasure to work with. I couldn’t recommend her more and I personally can’t wait for my next excuse to hire her again!

We hired Marijana to take photos of our wedding ceremony at the NYC City Hall. She was a true pleasure to work with - very patient throughout the entire (lengthy) process, and even willing to cross the Brooklyn Bridge for some post-wedding shots with the NY skyline. Marijana doesn't have years of professional training or experience, but she has a good eye and you can tell she's very passionate about her work and relationships with her clients. To me, that is really the difference between Marijana and other photographers!

I searched for a photographer online and did my research by looking at reviews as well as the websites of several photographers. I was impressed with Jovana’s photos on her website so I booked her for headshots as well as some dance poses. I’m so glad I did all that because Jovana was an absolute pleasure to work with. So professional and made me feel at ease. The images came beautiful and I have so many great shots to choose from. I couldnt be happier!

Chris captured the mood and tone of the party by taking many candid shots and posed pictures. In addition the pictures were creative and varied. He was unobtrusive and very personable. He is easy to work with and relaxed. Pictures arrived on time. I would hire him again and people at the party were so impressed that they took his card and are planning on hiring him. I didn’t include pictures of the guests only because it would not be fair to them to share on a public site but they are amazing.

I'm in the process of selling my NYC brownstone and Alex was fantastic. I love the quality of his photo's. Alex was very easier to get along with and that is not always easy with creative people. The turn around period was also very good. I received my photographs the same day of the shot. I would definitely use Alex again.

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.

Laura was amazing! She took the time to get every shot just right. While other photographers might keep shooting and rush a bit, Laura slowed everthing down until the shot was perfect; lighting, position, vibe, etc. I felt in excellent hands with Laura. I really relaxed, which is key in regard to getting good shots that look like me. She made me feel that her goal was to make me comfortable in order to get the best shots possible! She is a sweetheart. She’s been great at doing light retouching. Nothing drastic. My agents are thrilled, and so am I. I will definitely go back to Laura!!!

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 !

Jonathan was very responsive. He was actually able to squeeze an appointment with me last minute..same day. He provided 18 high quality photos of the property which was an awesome deal! Photos were delivered within 24 hours as promised. He even did some editing on a few photos which was really appreciated. I will definitely recommend him to others in need of professional photographer; and also plan on using him again the in future. Thanks again Jonathan!

Kimberlee was really wonderful to work with. She photographed my company's boat party and did that job very well. Like a true pro, Kim arrived at the perfect time, took the initiative to make her way through the chaos, found our boat, and gave herself a proper tour of the space. She communicated all of this to me as I was running behind. When I arrived, she was already photographing the few people that had arrived and had established rapport with some of them. I've worked with a lot of event photographers in the past and I've always been sensitive about making them feel like they're being pulled left and right. The first thing Kim told me after we shook hands and exchanged pleasantries was that we "must" make sure we tap her on the shoulder at any time if we wanted to take duo and group photos. I don't think I've ever heard an event photographer be so genuinely enthusiastic about saying that. I couldn't have asked for a better professional to have worked with that night. Kim meshed well with the group and delivered great images. Thank you, Kim!!!

My husband and I were in a frantic to find someone to take professional pictures for our courthouse wedding and it was extremely stressful as we only needed someone for a few hours rather the package deal so many others offered which was unnecessary for a 10 min court house wedding ceremony. While searching on Thumbtack, the first person to message me was Ji. He was so polite and professional upon initial conversation yet reasonable too. Through checking others, I kept coming back to Ji. He was the only real professional while sesrching on Thumbtack.. Upon calling Ji, i explained to him that I only needed someone for a few hours. He assured me how the process, pictures, contract and ideas for pictures would be done. Weddings are already stressful so it was a sigh of relief to deal with Ji. He shared his portfolio and information to get an idea of his work and he was so calm, yet professional and knowledgeable about his work and art where you can see he is passionate and dedicated to his craft. Its not just a job for him but what he enjoys doing, which was satisfying to know. On my wedding day, April 6th 2018, Ji was prompt, punctual and extremely professional. Although my family members were bidding to get pictures, Ji owned his place and took beautiful pictures more than what i expected to be honest. He instructed positions, stances and suggested scenes for the pictures, which was helpful and awesome as I was anxious on my special day. Everything ran smoothly and finished in the alloted time we agreed. Ji was kind enough to send a few edited pictures on the same day which is usually unheard of as normally photographers are busy, but Ji was so kind enough to go out of his way just to make me happy and I was excited to see them. It took only 2 days for the remainder pictures plus Ji is giving me 10 printed 8 by 10 pictures which is included. That is so awesome and appreciative. Personally, I would highly recommend Ji gir any future events or to anyone seeking a professional photographer who knows how to take good photographs for their special events, who is reasonable, punctual and actually makes you a priority as a customer. I really couldn't ask for more and I am so thankful I gave Ji the opportunity for my wedding.

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.
