I am very pleased with the services that Nick's company provided. When I met him he was very personable, professional, but still down to earth. He definitely is a people person. I engaged his services for my daughter's sweet 16 party this past Friday. The party was a success. It was a success because Nick is not only everything I said earlier but he also has ethics and stands behind his brand and his commitment to excellence. There was a misunderstanding that we had in reference to his photo booth services. I was under the impression it was going to be an automatic old school photobooth that instantly took posed shots. Thursday the day before the event. I found out he was providing a back drop with a professional photographer. Not at all what my daughter was looking for. Well, Nick being the person I thought he was made it right. He engaged the services of an industry friend whom had exactly what we wanted. He went above and beyond to make her day a success. The day of the event he was there early. He set up his light show which really made the party a hit. He setup lighted dance cubes the kids could dance on, his lighted DJ booth, his plasma screen for presenation. It was amazing. The kicker is not only did he provide us someone to fullfill our photobooth desire, but he and his assistant Joseph Alexander whom I must add, had the most pleasant nature and beautiful smile, still took professional pictures with the backdrop. My daughter was in awwwww. This is what I call customer satisfaction. I'd use him again and recommend him highly. If you want a successful, classy, fun event use Nick Michaels to make your event complete. Written by an extremely Happy Customer Denise

Despite my personal mis-givings about the anticipated experience of being photographed for corporate headshots, I found myself completely comfortable and at ease during the entire process with Beth. She made the whole experience a very casual (and interesting!) conversation so that I hardly realized I was doing something I dislike, (which is having my photo taken!!) She did an amazing job with my shots to the extent that my family was raving about how she was able to capture the essence of my personality along with the physical traits. I thoroughly enjoyed meeting Beth and would highly recommend her services to anyone looking for a professional photographer.

Had to write a review ASAP because you were an absolute pleasure to work with. You were able to group my crazy wedding party together and get great photos in before the rain. Even with screaming babies you kept it all together and captured the best shots. Could not thank you enough for being so flexible and working around my schedule. You are a true professional and outdid yourself. Thank you for making my day the BEST day ever I could not have had a better photographer.

Not only a talented photographer, Dave is an absolute pleasure to work with!! From the moment I booked his services for my daughter’s Bat Mitzvah to the time I received the edited photos, Dave was nothing short of a professional. Whenever I contacted him to ask a question or make a request, Dave was quick to respond and always provided me with a clear answer and was most generous with his time and attention. The photos came out beautifully, and he was able to capture the evening in a way that exceeded all my expectations. I can’t recommend Dave highly enough, and anyone hiring him is guaranteed to be in for a treat!

I normally dont write reviews but Oleksandra is just worth writing one for! She's one of the nicest and very professional photographers I got to work with. I onboarded her on such a short notice (two days before my wedding) for my wedding and she was very proactive on communicating with me and my husband and art directing the shots that she needed to take. I am very very pleased! And I can't wait to see the processed photos from our wedding in a week. She's awesome! HIRE HER PEOPLE!

We have just received the "agreement" (he sent two days ago). We will review and respond to Tom French later tonight. In all likelyhood he will be the photographer we hire for the wedding.

From the minute things began, Erin and her assistant knew exactly the right balance of everything. From how much to step in and direct shots, to how much to be unobtrusive. They were always putting our needs first within the very difficult job of capturing those very precious wedding moments as they happen. Many photographers can display their wedding portfolios online but you cannot gauge their personal style of working with you. Erin is someone who cares about you as the bride and groom who within their special day are also dealing with so much going on. You can tell she loves what she does and is extremely good at it. Plus she’s just a wonderful person and you will be glad she’s covering your special day and all the important people in it. I will be sure to call her to shoot the other important events in our lives that are coming up! Thank you for everything, Erin!

Matt is incredibly talented. Aside from being a wonderful photographer, he is responsive, flexible, punctual and accommodating. Matt turned a project for me in less than a day, helping to meet an accelerated deadline ahead of schedule. I'll be keeping him on speed dial for all future projects.

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.

Great photographer, even better person. So glad I hired Emily! She was flexible, patient, and even helped sooth my baby along the way, allowing her to capture just the most incredible photographs. She was worth the investment. Truthfully, you couldn't put a price on her work- simply priceless.

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.

She is a talented and creative photographer able to quickly and effectively capture those special moments. Additionally we used her and her lovely assistant for the videography which Nancy edited beautifully. Everyone who sees our photos/video comments on the beautiful job. Thank You for the memories Nancy!

David puts his whole self into his work and truly made me feel like I was the most important client. I’ve put my home on the market in the past and never worked with a realty photographer. The home sat vacant for months. After using David, I will never make that mistake again. My home sold in a matter of days and the buyer commented that the pictures were what first drew them in. You can’t go wrong by working with David and Shaw Visual Media!

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.
