Chris provided DJ and lighting for my wedding in September. He did a great job from the initial meeting where he took extra time to discuss our preferences to the actual event. He was professional, punctual, and an exceptional value. I would highly recommend him for a wedding or special event.

Courtney Astalfa is an extremely talented photographer. She is very professional, while at the same time, creates a comfortable atmosphere for you, the client. She takes the time to figure out what exactly you are looking for in a photograph, as well as explains how she will create it. Courtney is extremely knowledgeable of Photoshop. I recommend her to anyone looking for any type of photo session, you won't regret it!!

STYLE: All photographs and the wedding photos we have seen by him are very personal specific to each couple. When we met with him, we really felt like we got to know the other people he has photographed for just by looking through his pictures. We were thrilled when our wedding photos arrived and found the same to be true for us! TILTED (DUTCH) ANGLES AND DEPTH Personally, I LOVE his use of dutch angles and depth in photos, so be prepared to arrange yourselves with depth. Example: Groomsmen had a standard "line-up" photo that my traditional granny liked a lot, but there was another groomsmen one where they're seated throughout different pews that I thought was so much more telling of the personality of the men and showed off the natural beauty of the church). So clearly he will give you the 'standard' wedding photos but then the other 80-90% will have a lot of flare and personality that he encourages the subjects to express from within instead of being externally directed. TIMING: 2 WEEKS AND 1450 PHOTOS PLUS SLIDESHOW We had our photos within 2 weeks of the wedding and despite how agonizing it was to wait, considering how stunning the photos were, I can see why it would take a bit of time to sort and send it all! These were miles better than our friends' selfies and cell phone pics that we had to hold us over. EXPRESSION: Something that was pretty cool about receiving his photos was our guests had made a lot of comments to us about our expressions at very specific moments of the ceremony and reception that we just assumed was because they knew us so well. When we saw the photos, it was plain as day to understand what they were talking about and it all lined up with the specific moments mentioned! Clearly Emmanuel has a talent for getting an idea of who people are fairly quickly and then understanding when to focus where for the best representation of each wedding and each couple. ADDED BONUS: PERSONALITY BEYOND THE PHOTOS Every wedding is stressful in its own way, but from our very first meeting Emmanuel was so kind and helpful. Every message and communication leading up to the day was professional and cheerful. The actual day was pretty hectic (they tend to be) but he came and inserted himself into our chaos, capturing lovely instants that we now have the gift of being able to look back on. Even though he was with us all day, he was never in the way and was always helpful. He encouraged friends and family to roll with pose ideas and generally made everyone so comfortable that it's an absolute treasure to look at photos with everyone's REAL smiles instead of just 'picture day' smiles. If you do meet with him, take notice of how in other wedding photos he shows, he manages to capture a group and everyone is smiling their genuine smiles in the SAME photograph. From your oldest grandmother, to your distracted siblings, down to the youngest cousin, all of them seem to have finally been synced in the timing of their expressions of joy. (So no need to photoshop good smiles together) As my husband put it afterwards, "Just him being there added so much joy to how our loved ones celebrated with us. That by itself could be a hireable skill for a wedding day." BUDGETS AND PACKAGES He has a variety of packages to fit different needs. We were on a shoestring budget and this (photographer) was actually a family gift. The package we selected was a bit closer to "normal" wedding budgets than our lower budget, but of all the things that money was spent on, this was the best investment. The day truly flew by and we are so happy and thankful to have such amazing photos to remember it by. You know what they say: families only get together at weddings and funerals, so what a treasure it is to look at both of our extended families in the same place and through such an accurate representation of their personalities! -Plus, when else in your life will you have so many people gather because they love you and are excited to celebrate with you? We had guests from all over and it is so precious to look at them enjoying the day. Even with facebook and google+ sharing options, I've still be printing 4x6 photos to slip into individual thank you cards so that families will have a printed copy of that great photo of their young baby, or new couples will have a special momento from that lovely dance. These are simply too wonderful not to share. OVERALL: If you've continued reading this lengthy review up to this point, then you won't be shocked when I write that we highly recommend Emmanuel. I stuck to comments and points on wedding photos because that was the service he provided to us, but what I have seen of his other works is gorgeous too. In hind sight, I wish we had done an engagement photo session so that we wouldn't have agonized over what to put on Save the Dates, our wedding website, and invitations. Clearly he was a joy to work with and the quality of his product is an absolute treasure to us (I can't say that enough). Hiring him as your photographer gives you quality products and a fantastic experience. Then you'll be free to stress about other things since your photographers and photos are already more than taken care of.

This was my first time having a professional photographer at my event. We found Thumbtack 5 days before the event, and Josh replied very quickly. Josh is very easy to communicate, very caring, and very quick to respond. We had him take candid photos for our wedding reception, and I was literally blown away with the quality of his photos. All photos were very clear, so beautiful. Looking at the photos, I could not stop smiling - remembering the moment and also feeling the atmosphere again. The turn out time for photos took only couple days. I highly recommend Josh for your event; again very easy to work with and you'll get great photos!

I hadn't met Sam in person before officially booking her. I could tell by her photo of herself on her website and her responsiveness to emails that she was it. Sam was 1000% wonderful at putting my mind at ease and helping to keep things flowing for our wedding timeline. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer for any event. She gave us a sneak peek of one picture from our night and I cannot wait to see the rest of our wedding photos!

I consider myself a picky photograph person, and I definitely didn't want the "plain-Jane" wedding photographs that looked like anyone could take using a "decent camera." I wanted sharp, crisp, color with a little flare and a little attitude, while still getting true to life pictures and colors. After searching through a TON of wedding photographers, I fell in love with Ray's portfolio! Every picture had such creativity and showed true artistic ability and uniqueness. We just got back our engagement photos and he DID NOT disappoint!! My "hubby to be" is typically a hellion in front of a camera. Silly face here, goofy look there, pouty faces all over. Ray helped us capture the true essence of "us" in the best way! Despite it being nearly 100 degrees and as humid as a steam room, he managed to keep us relaxed, smiling, laughing, and having a really good time! All of this showed in the amazing photos we got back! I cannot say enough about how great Ray is behind a camera. On top of that, he is so attentive and responsive when you message him and we got our pictures back so fast! I cannot wait for our wedding to see the amazing moments he catches, because he definitely doesn't miss a beat! (He even caught the split second the man gave me secret bunny ears, probably thinking he'd get away with it.... Nope, Ray captured that and it was one of my favorites!!!)

Looking for a professional photographer who takes amazing photographs you will cherish for years to come, makes you feel comfortable and won't make you wait months at a time to get your photos back? Look no further than Denys Vasylevskyy! I highly recommend him as he is one of the best photographers in the area, hands down! He truly captures the feeling of the day. He has photographed our family a number of times and we plan on utilizing his photography again and again.

    I cannot express enough how wonderful a photographer James is. I am so happy that I choose to work with him, and the photos he takes are beautiful! They are not your typical posed wedding photos (yes, there are some of those)...but his candids are where he really shines. If you give him the freedom to do his thing, he will not disappoint. Not to mention, he has a great personality and is fun to hang out with! Don't skimp out on photography...they will be what you look at for the rest of your life. I think you get a deal for what he charges!!! Just check out his website and you will know what I mean....

    Shawn photographed me on a few occasions, notably once for a magazine photoshoot. He is very professional, takes his time on every picture, and pays attention to every detail (telling you where to look, adjusting the lighting, adjusting your pose so it looks most natural etc). He also uses a few different types of cameras (film, polaroid, and digital) and the pictures come out beautiful no matter which one he uses. Shawn is very professional and does a thorough job so that every picture comes out as perfect as humanly possible- I highly recommend working with him!

        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.
