Mary and her assistant were outstanding. We could not have asked for a better and more professional wedding photography experience. They met with us prior to the wedding at our wedding location. On the day of the wedding they showed up early and stayed late. They took over 800 photos and captured every moment, big and small. They made both us and our 120 guests feel at ease, and documented everything without ever getting in the way. I enthusiastically recommend them to anyone looking to photograph their event, and will call them again if I have the opportunity.

Harris delivered a funny and touching service at our wedding just this weekend. It was a great balance of humor and touching moments. We had many guests tell us that they loved him, and we were glad that we picked Harris to start our marriage off on the right foot.

Vesta is the best make up artist i've ever encountered. She did an awesome trial for my wedding which also happened to be the day of my bridal shower. My guests were in awe of how beautiful I looked. Furthermore, on the day of my wedding Vesta travelled to my home and did a phenomenal job on my mother, one of my bridesmaids, and of course myself. All of pictures were flawless for my wedding and it is in large part due to Vesta's brilliance as it relates to her craft. I would not hesitate to use her again in the very near future..

Maria took some amazing photos at our wedding dinner. She was there early and stayed longer than we expected. It was a tight space but Maria still managed to get great photos of our family and friends. She also has reasonable rates. I highly recommend her for your next event! I will certainly be calling her next time I need a quality photographer. Thank you, Maria!

DJ Hamilton Bird provided excellent service for my wedding, he helped make it extra perfect and special. He was organized and very hands on in every detail of what his job intended. Not only that, but he was also very concerned about making sure we got exactly what we wanted out of this very special occasion. I not only got my monies worth out of him, I also got a good friend. So if you want a DJ who's not only professional and experienced, but also caring, friendly and loves what he does. I highly recommend DJ Hamilton Bird. Thank you so much, Hamilton (DJ Bird) Excellent job. From: Mr. and Mrs. Kevin Martin

I'm sure officiating at a large, elaborate, or formal wedding has plenty of challenges. But it also can't be easy walking into the last-minute, tiny, extremely informal wedding of a couple who've been living together for a dozen years and still be appropriate on every level. The fact that Anthony was able to do this, without ever having met us previously, and could add such a nice note to our small ragtag ceremony, speaks volumes about his people skills and experience. He showed up at Central Park on time, slightly better-dressed than any of us, and was cheerful and unfazed by any small glitches—late guest, forgotten license. In addition to the vows we had written he said a few simple words of his own, helping to make the brief ceremony genuinely moving and joyful. Anthony managed to be a really pleasant part of our day without being a big presence—which I think is no easy trick when you're one-seventh of the wedding party. And he was a great sport about meeting up the next day so I could hand over the missing license. I wholeheartedly recommend Anthony's services for any wedding ceremony of any kind. We were 100% delighted with our wedding, and he was an import part of that.

Wow! Philicia is 100% the best photographer my wife and I has ever worked with (including our wedding photographer)! My wife and I have been so busy since we got married with our crazy work schedules but decided to give a gift to ourselves by driving to NY and taking anniversary pictures. I'm so happy we chose Philicia! She made us feel really comfortable and helped us look like a million bucks! We were a little late but Philicia was on time and extremely patient with us! We had fun and we laughed a lot. My wife was all smiles at the end--a great start to our anniversary date! Philicia just sent us a sneak peak of our pictures and we love them!! We can't wait to see the rest! Thank you Philicia! We will definitely hire you if we ever come to NY again!

Adolfo and his team catered our cocktail wedding for 100 guests and we can't recommend them enough. We contacted him for cocktail catering but his service was not limited to food. He and his team helped us plan and manage every details of the night and suggested some details that we had not even thought about. The quality of food was great, service was professional, staff was friendly, we specially liked our event captain. Also, he and his team were very punctual and overall, they helped us enjoy our wedding without being worried about details.

Dany was super responsive from the get go. She answered all my questions on thumbtack and by text before I felt comfortable to choose her to do mine and my mom's makeup for our best friends wedding. With a few inspo photos and ones of ourselves that we sent she knew exactly the look we were going for. Day of she arrived punctually and was warm and friendly from the beginning. She did not waste anytime and jumped straight into one makeup session after the other. She was such a lovely professional to work with. Her experience and skill shined during the session and with the final result! I would definitely 100% recommend her!! My mom and I can't wait for our next occasion so Dany can glam us up again!

Chris was an absolute joy to work with. He made me feel so comfortable in front of the camera; I wasn't self conscious at all. He is very friendly and keeps conversation flowing, capturing your natural self, so your head shots and portraits don't look fake or staged, but like the best version of you. I use the photos he took as my professional acting headshots, and I continually receive compliments on how well shot they are and how well they capture my personality. I would recommend him to everyone I know–for professional headshots as well as family, wedding, or any kind of shoots!

Peter has taken the wedding party for my son, Michael and his wife, Fate, to a highest level that anyone could ever imagine. He paid attention to all details from the moment he walked into our house to set up the food stations, the bar stations and the kitchen where he and Jennifer, his assistant, worked. The food he cooked were very creative and beautiful and his staffs were so good in learning how to say the names of our Vietnamese and Filipino food. I strongly recommend Peter to any parties, whether for a wedding event, or home dinner. Thank you, Peter, you are the greatest (may be Momofuku should pay attention to the next Pork Belly bun with Kim Chi). Best regards, Kim

I do not have enough words to describe how amazing Antonia is! After dealing with another officiant who did not make me feeling comfortable at all, I was skeptical about using another officiant that I did not know. But i gave it a shot and I reached out to Antonia and she without a doubt made me feel extremely comfortable from day one. She responded to my emails and phone calls very quickly and reassured me every step of the way. She walked me through the entire process and never made me feel like I did not know what the next steps would be. I booked Antonia about a month and a half before my wedding and we worked out all the logistics right away and I thought I wouldn't hear from her until a few days before the wedding but Antonia would email me randomly just to say hello and check up on me which made me feel she really cared about her clients! Antonia and I did not meet until the day of the wedding due to my schedule but I was confident that she would not let me down and I was correct! Not only was Antonia there a half hour early she looked extremely professional and well prepared for the ceremony. If you need an officiant and have doubts then you should go with Antonia because she will be sure to make all your doubts and fears go away! She will make sure this part of wedding planning goes smoothly. TRUST ME, YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED! -Angela

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.

What is a videographer and what do they do?

A videographer professionally films weddings and other events and edits the footage to create film keepsakes or marketing materials for their clients. Wedding videographers record all the key elements of your wedding day, ceremony and reception, and then edit the hours of film during post-production to make a wedding video, social media highlight reels, and any other film features you choose. Wedding videography captures, in live action, your vows, the cake-cutting, the first dance, reception toasts, the decor, the guests and all the details of your day. Many wedding videographers also interview guests (based on an interview list provided by the couple) and incorporate the recorded responses into the wedding video. Event videography typically costs less than wedding videography, as events are shorter with less detail. The national average cost for event videography is $500-$760, while the national average cost for wedding videography is $990-$1,260. A videographer usually does not need to be licensed, but it is important to confirm they have insurance and good standing in the business community, as well as good client reviews. A great majority of the work happens during post-production. The pros watch and blend together the hours of footage they took (sometimes from multiple cameras) to capture the story of your wedding day or event.

What does a wedding event coordinator do?

Pulling off a large, complex wedding or an elegant, small affair requires juggling myriad details, including the officiant, food, drink, wedding cake, entertainment, transportation, rehearsal dinner, photography, equipment rentals, venue reservations and more. A wedding event coordinator can help you keep track of these details, overseeing the planning process and managing everything on the day of your wedding. Each wedding coordinator (and wedding) is different, but in general you can expect an event coordinator to:

  • Help you devise a realistic wedding budget and hold your vendors to it.
  • Map out a master plan that includes all of the details including ceremony music, favors, the guest book and more.
  • Suggest ceremony and reception locations that fit your wedding size, budget and vision.   
  • Suggest florists, photographers, bands, caterers and other vendors that fit your budget.
  • Negotiate vendor contracts for the best deals.
  • Create a timeline for the day of the wedding that includes each vendor and member of your wedding party.
  • Mail invitations and track RSVPs.
  • Answer questions about wedding etiquette and current wedding trends.
  • Manage the wedding day from supervising vendors and setup to handling last-minute emergencies.

How do you find a good caterer?

Reviews, interviews and menu tastings will help you find the right catering choice for your big day. Start by screening possible wedding caterers based on past reviews. If a caterer you are interested in has a review that concerns you, ask them about it; how they respond will be very telling. Next, ask about their availability for your wedding date.

If the wedding caterer is available on your date, it’s time to talk about menus and prices. Be clear about what your maximum budget is find out what choices this will allow you. Caterers may custom-create a menu for your event, or they may have menu templates within different price ranges that can guide your decision. A clear budget gives the caterer clear parameters within which to work and offer creative suggestions. Schedule a menu tasting to confirm you love your wedding menu. Once you have a menu and date, and have paid a deposit to reserve the caterer’s services, confirm additional details including when the food will be delivered to the site, what kind of service will be provided, how many servers will be onsite and for how long, and who is responsible for setup and cleanup. The more specific your contract, the fewer worries you’ll have on your wedding day. Get more smart hiring tips here.

What is a wedding planner?

A wedding planner is a professional service provider whose job it is to organize and execute all the details of a couple’s wedding. A wedding planner can be contracted at any stage in the wedding planning process to help to any degree the couple is willing to pay for. Wedding planning is similar to event planning in that a planning team handles the coordination of multiple wedding elements including catering, venue, guests, entertainment, decor, transportation and more. Anyone who has ever been involved in a wedding can confirm that wedding planning is hard work. Experience brings wisdom when it comes to avoiding or resolving day-of challenges. There is no legal regulatory body that oversees or certifies wedding planning as an industry. Anyone who chooses can call themselves a wedding planner. When looking for a wedding planner, be sure to read reviews, and make smart hiring decisions by asking about licenses and insurance.

How do you choose a wedding videographer?

A wedding videographer will create a lifetime memory for you from edited video footage of your wedding day, ceremony and reception. Choosing a wedding videographer starts with looking online at portfolios of their past work. There’s no need to talk to anyone unless you love what you see. Next, make sure they have good reviews and past client experience; don’t be shy about asking for references if there aren’t any posted online. When you find someone who has a style you love, ask if they are available on your wedding day. If so, it’s time to talk pricing. Be clear about your maximum budget, and ask what kind of packages they offer. Pricing will depend on the number of crew needed for filming, the hours they are required to be onsite, post-production editing, and the length of the final product. Talk with several wedding videographers to get a feel for what prices are like in your region. Nationally, the average cost for wedding videography ranges between $990 and $1,260 per event. Once you agree on a product and have a plan, get everything in a written and signed contract. Clearly state the details of what is expected for your wedding day and from the final product. Be prepared to pay a deposit to reserve their services for the day, then pay the remainder upon receiving the video.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
