Harry was very professional and was not only punctual but early to the event. He went above and beyond, creating a very relaxed atmosphere and was very open to suggestions on shots. His creative positioning on pictures was breathtaking. We could not have chosen a better photographer for our wedding!

Kelly has now been my photographer of choice for the past 7 years! As an actor, a head shot is such an important tool for the acting craft. Kelly's innate sense of capturing authenticity & personality while also being able to analyze the best angles for the most flattering photos is quite appreciated! Thank you, for the dozens of photo shoots, which have all been fantastic! Wishing for you the very best in your many future professional photography endeavors!

I literally cannot even express how amazing Travis was during the entire photo shoot process. Everything from making us feel comfortable and open to different poses. It was clear from his sample pictures that he knows what he's doing, and his price was completely reasonable. I also loved his business model how we got every single picture he took instead of just being forced to choose a few like most photographers do. Overall, I can't complain about one thing. He was flexible during scheduling (even though I was running late) and wonderful during the whole editing process (he would send me surprise sneak peak pictures while editing). Everything was flawless. I would highly recommend his services!

Chloe was absolutely amazing. Not only is she an amazing photographer, she's a fabulous human being. She fit seemlessly into our day, and with a group of only 9 people, that's really something. I couldn't recommend her more.

Doug is awesome. He does a great job doing videography and creating special videos for weddings. With a photographer as what my wedding was they would be there doing everything they needed to do without interrupting the photographer. I can't wait to see the video that they will create from the wedding, but seeing past videos they will do an amazing job. I highly recommend Doug as he is very professional, punctional, does a great job, good guy and has a lot of fun doing it. Not only that they even stayed a little longer than we contracted them for yesterday and that was awesome. Basically going above and beyond to make sure every detail of the wedding is recorded. Thanks Doug for everything you do.

Nathan was one of the first photographers that I worked with as a model. From the very beginning I felt very comfortable with him and still look forward to working with him. He makes the shoot fun and does a very good job giving guidance. The most important thing for me as a model is that I feel comfortable with and completely trust the photographer- I have always felt this way with Nathan. Nathan has always been quick and willing to share his work with me. I sometimes work on Trade Base and some photographers are incredibly slow to show me their work or are stingy with only offering 3 images. Nathan always delivers more than expected. Artistically, Nathan is outside of the box, which I greatly enjoy. He is not afraid to try something funky, silly or extreme with his post editing or during the shoot. He is one of my favorite photographers and I always look forward to working with him. I highly recommend him. I am confident that anyone who has their picture taken by Nathan will love the results.

We could not have chosen a better photographer for our wedding. Denise was amazing in every way. She was so sweet, very attentive to what we wanted out of our wedding photos, and went above and beyond what was expected of her. I have nothing but good things to say about her. It was an honor to have her photograph our special day, and we look forward to working with her again for maternity shoots, family portraits, whatever life may bring us. Denise and Willow Ridge Photography come highly recommended.

I just loved his pictures. I wanted a photographer for my children's birthday party and hired him. The first thing I liked about John was his prompt response. He contacted me immediately and gave me a very reasonable quote. The next thing was his punctuality. He was in the venue before I came. He listened patiently about my needs. In the whole two hours, not once did he get irritated. He was kind to everyone and most importantly, patient with the kids. The pictures look natural and they capture the emotions. I would definitely hire him again. I would also recommend him to all my friends.

Our organization has used Gil as our exclusive photographer for many years. We have used him for both individual and group photographs and he has delivered them as promised in a timely manner. He has always presented himself in a very professional manner and been responsive to our needs. I would recommend Gil Balden of Associated Photographers to anyone who is looking for a photographer.

It was not just a photo shoot. It was a wonderful memorable experience my daughter will have. She felt like she was a super model. Dule and his wife are so compassionate about what they do. Everything was explained, they were fun and professional! I love the way the package is different from other high end photographers. THE VALUE is what counts. Oh and I’m writing this before even seeing the final photos. We saw unedited shots ( teasers) I called them that were stunning. Dule is an artist and he knew how to use the sunset and downtown lighting to really catch some amazing looks. His wife assisted with such cute poses that ranged from fun and carefree to sassy and oh La la. Thank you guys. I will definitely share photos here!

When I needed an eye-catching photo for my book cover, Brenda was the obvious choice. The idea of a cover shot was more than a little intimidating, but I trusted Brenda to guide me—and am so glad I did! The image we eventually chose was perfectly timed. It is definitely me—but it's me at a peak "Why can't I look like this EVery day?!" moment. Brenda caught me at my friendly, confident best (in many shots, actually) and gave us the personal, yet professional cover photo we needed. Brenda is technically and creatively excellent, but it's her intuitive ability to draw out the essence of her subjects that makes her images so captivating. Her easy demeanor and engaging personality make you almost forget there's a camera between you, and as you respond to Brenda, she captures one's ideal self. Not surprisingly, she is always my first recommendation to anyone needing a professional portrait. Her remarkable instincts on timing and in reading emotional stories has put her in high demand as a sports and event photographer as well!

I highly recommend Brian as a photographer. Brian did my daughters senior pictures this past weekend and the experience was amazing. Brian was quick to respond to questions, was on time for the appointment, and the price was very fair for the skill/quality of the pictures. Furthermore, Brian has a natural knack for putting people at ease so that the best possible shots can be taken. I have already recommended Brian to a number of family members and friends and I will definitely use him in the future should the need for a photographer arise. Thanks Brian for making this such a great experience!!!

Tiera is an amazing photographer whose work can be seen all over social media. She does an awesome job 'capturing the moment' and her editing and overexposure skills really set her apart from other Central Ohio photographers. If you'd like an awesome capture of your event or 'moment' I'd happily recommend Tiera to you.

We just got our engagement photos from Brett and his wife and they were great to work with! Completely open to our ideas/wishes, but lots of suggestions where we were unsure. They turned around our (high quality) photos quickly. We're so happy to have them photograph our wedding!

    I used Sumi Patel Photography for some amazing college graduation photos. The photographer showed up right on time and spent the next two hours with my family walking between locations on my college campus and helping us take a vast variety of photos. She was very responsive to what we wanted in our photos and helped us pose. The final product was well edited and looked very nice. Would recommend!

    About

    I am a portrait photographer interested in making fun, sophisticated, and contemporary images that are unique to each client. My work includes children, family, maternity, glamour, boudoir, and intimate weddings. Your session can be planned for on-location or in a studio setting. Even though we live in a digital world, I truly believe it makes a world of difference to be able to hold a beautiful print or album in your hand. I provide a variety of prints, albums, framed images, canvas gallery wraps, and digital images through my packages. I would be thrilled to hear your ideas for a photo shoot!

    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.
