Brian DJ'd our wedding. He also provided a photo booth. Initially I was skeptical about having it, but it REALLY made the night special. He played every single song we wanted and every song my daughter requested! He provided a nice mix of other music that was appropriate. He kept playing upbeat music when people were dancing. He was very clear that this was my day and adapted well to family members who tried to take over things. (He referred to me first.) The one thing that I would suggest that Brian improve would be the communication with me and his event staff. They lost numerous emails that I sent them and some requests I made never happened. (For instance, he also can take photos during the event, and when I asked for examples, they were never sent. Therefore we didn't add on that component.) Once Brian stepped in and took on all the communication, everything went extremely smoothly. He definitely made it right after I pointed out that there was a problem. We would definitely hire Brian again and recommend him to anyone asking.

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.

Our photo session went really great. The photographer was very easy to talk to about what we wanted as we went through the session. The finished pictures were awesome and well worth it. Thanks you Bemont photo! I highly recommend and would use them again.

Chris was our wedding photographer and he was absolutely amazing! He was there all day and was sure to meet all of our needs and wants for our photos. He gave us a sneak peak a few days later and everyone loved those photos. When we got the rest of our photos we were just blown away! It was amazing and honestly made me cry remembering our day and how well he captured it. On top of that the photo booth we had from him was a huge hit and everyone loved it!

The Kidds did an amazing job with our wedding. They arrived early, were respectful of our time, and made sure they got every shot that was important to us. The finished product is BEYOND those expectations, and we will cherish this for the rest of our lives. As a very laid back and indecisive couple, we had a hard time coming up with the kind of wedding video we wanted but they asked us just the right questions, and eased our minds the week or so leading up to the big day. I HIGHLY recommend Kidd Media Productions for ANY event photography/videography you may need.

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 have been working with Stephanie for over a year. Most of our photo-shoots are creative and for fun, but she also photographed my senior pictures. No matter what, the pictures turn out phenomenal and I am never disappointed. Stephanie is an amazing, extremely talented person, and I absolutely love working with her!

    Heidi has a phenomenal eye and does a great job with nature photos as well as people. She captured a picture of my daughter's reaction last Christmas when she thought she was opening clothes (she was 5) and the look on her face is priceless! Heidi is extremely professional and conscientious and is the photographer I want for my important memories.

    Kathryn did our engagement photos and was one of the photographers at our wedding: she is absolutely incredible! Kathryn is a naturally skilled photographer, is kind and professional, and is adept at making anyone look their best without any odd poses or forced smiles. I LOVED working with her and recommend her highly!

    Overall we are so pleased with the photos Lupercal Media took! My now husband and I have what you would call a hectic schedule with him being in the military and me working full time; the team was able to be flexible with our schedules even when we had to change things last minute. They were able to address any concerns we may have had and were very accommodating to our requests. The team went out to where our wedding venue was being held and walked us through some photos they were looking to take of us and we were able to throw some funny ideas as well. Wedding day came and they were like ghosts but they were there capturing our crazy day! Honestly I was amazed they could even get a photo of our flower girl, she incredibly shy but by the end of the night she was the ham of the party. Lastly I wish I could have given 5 stars but sadly they did not have an option to do the printing for our photos and Thank You cards. They did however give us both untouched and touched up photos on a thumb drive. We will absolutely work with this team again when we have another event to plan in the future. Thanks So Much!!

      I'm so impressed with the work I've seen Amy coming out with. She really seems to instinctively know how to bring out the best in her subjects - although I've never met her in person, I feel like I know her children's personalities so well, she really lets them shine with her photography. I can only wish that she lived closer to me, I'd so love to have her do my family shots!

      Our company hired Mr. Kramer for a commercial we needed to make for a contest. There were a number of difficult shots and transitions that we were afraid would be too challenging to film in the way we hoped. Mr. Kramer's expertise and ideas immediately put us at ease. His input made things turn out better than we imagined, and we couldn't be happier with the finished product. Additionally it should be noted that Mr. Kramer (Nate, as he prefers to be called) was a pleasure to work with. He has a great sense of humor, listened to everything we had to say, and was never pushy despite the wealth of experience he has behind the camers. Our happiness with the commercial was always his top priority and we'd definitely hire him again. Highly recommended for anyone's video or photographic needs.

          Todd was the only photographer I would have used for my wedding. He made my wife and I look as if we were doing a shoot for a multinational magazine and made us look that goods a well. He's real easy to talk to and work with making the event a breeze. He can give you traditional looks if you want or just let him do what we did and let him be himself. He won't let you down.

              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.
