Jill was so pleasant to work with, professional, prompt, and very accommodating. She handled our engagement and wedding photos and we couldn't be happier with the results! I would love to work with her again.

Mike Cotton did an outstanding job of photographing our 25th wedding anniversary party. We are truly grateful for the beautiful photographs he took, which give us lasting memories to return to again and again. The evening was a joyous one for us, and the happiness of all of our guests comes through clearly in Mike's images. We especially appreciate the gorgeous depths of color he achieved, the way he graciously invited our guests to pose for portrait shots, and how he captured all of the important moments during the evening. We do not recall him moving about, taking hundreds of photos (he was very discreet), but the proof of his excellent work arrived in the mail less than one week later. Thank you, thank you, thank you, Mike! We heartily recommend your service to others who are planning to hire a photographer for an event.

Mark is a truly fun person and professional photographer. We hired him at our wedding for wedding & engagement photography, videography, and a photobooth! He is extremely flexible and really wants to please the couple! He asked for my Pinterest board and took all of the photos that I was dying to have!!! Our engagement photos were taken & returned to us edited in a matter of hours-- and they are absolutely perfect!!! He asks for your input and doesn't force any photos you do not want. He is ready to go and gets to know you through questionnaires and conversions prior to meeting. Without him, my groom and I would not have thought of so many wonderful poses! The photobooth was the biggest hit! So many props, pictures for everyone, and they even made us a scrapbook of all of the photobooth pictures with guest comments! I LOVED Mark's services and highly recommend to everyone! We will definitely use him again in the future!!

I cannot send out enough glowing praises about Adam and Keli photography. They were absolutely amazing to work with throughout the entire planning and execution of our wedding. One of the things my husband and I were most concerned about in planning our wedding was obtaining a photographer who would take our unique needs and requests as a same-sex couple into consideration, in planning and execution of all the event. The photographer is someone who has a more intimate interaction with the wedding party and guests, and we were blown away from the beginning at how much Adam and Keli cared about making our experience, unique and as fun as possible. From last minute change requests of ours, to missing grooms-people, they rolled with the punches and we could not be more pleased with the results we have seen so far. Their professionalism, friendliness, and desire to go above and beyond to capture our momentous event. We have begun recommending Adam and Keli to friends, and family for all photography needs in the future!

Brandi and Jason just did both photography and videography for my wedding. They came out of their way to meet with us and were just really nice and attentive to what our needs would be. The day of the wedding they divided and conquered to get all of our still photography as well as the video but were very professional and unobtrusive. My entire bridal party liked them because they were fun and not pushy or demanding at all. I also really appreciated that they gave us a break on price by bundling the two services together because I have friends that paid a lot more and did not have as good an experience as we've had. I would definitely recommend them.

Choosing Ashley and Images Photography for our wedding was the best decision that we made! She was funny, helpful, directed us very well, and let us be ourselves in our sessions. She is amazing at capturing the proper lighting and making sure that the job is done in excellence! We could not be more happy with our engagement and wedding photos! Not only will Ashley be our lifetime photographer, she and her family are going to be our lifetime friends. Thank you so much!!

I have known Paul for a few years now from some modeling photo shoots and when the time came to pick a wedding photographer I didn't want anyone else but him. Not only is he very professional, talented, dependable and creative but he goes above and beyond his call of duty. He helped me find an amazing makeup artist after the one I booked fell through and even came with me to the trial run to make sure it was perfect for the pictures. When I was getting sick before my wedding he gave me the name of his holistic doctor. And when it rained on my wedding day he made sure we had a great backup plan and you can't even tell it's raining in the pictures. His work is incredible, go to his website and see for yourself. I highly recommend Paul!

We hired Lena after meeting with her at our home, where we were to be married. She was responsive to our request, easy to work with and did what she said she'd do. Her skills on the day of the wedding were above average. She was able to clearly and with good humor direct all of our party to get the photos we wanted and ones she felt appropriate. She captured the spirit of the day and took our natural surroundings and made them look amazing. She provided us a sneak peak of a few photos a week after the wedding and delivered both access to an online vault of pictures about 60 days after the event. Yesterday we received a thumb-drive with out personal wedding picture monogrammed on it, a thumb-drive containing all of our photos. I would highly recommend this professional and welcome any questions form anyone considering her.

Casey is wonderful! She was very attentive to our wants and needs and exceeded all of our expectations. She was very flexible with scheduling our engagement session and communicated with us along the way. You won't find a more professional, fun-spirited, or skilled photographer! I highly recommend Casey and can't wait to use her services again for our wedding photography.

James did a fabulous job on 8/18/2018! He was punctual, had great ideas for photos! He was very patient with all of us. He never stopped working, took photos from many different angles., We were just able to concentrate on the wedding. At the dinner after the wedding, he wanted to take a group photo of the people attending, but one person did not physically feel he could go to the area best for the photo, he never batted an eye, just started taking candid photos around the room, so we got good pics of all there. He ran the video camera besides taking still photos, even helped us with music problems. He worked longer than originally expected, not the least he was very friendly and enjoyable. I would recommend Andrea and James of Ruff Creek Photography any day. They were also very flexible working with us initially online and came to the house at a time and day convenient for us for our final meeting.

We got married on 9/8/18 and used the Combs Photography and it was one of the best decisions for our big day. Jessica and Cody were great from the beginning. Jessica was very professional every time I communicated to her and her responses were always on time. They traveled and were at the venue a day before to go over possible photo shots and they even did RESEARCH on our venue BEFOREHAND to check out possible photo ideas!! Both Jessica and Cody were easy to talk to and we felt very comfortable with them, which is so important when it comes to the vendors you use for such an important day. The day of, they were EVERYWHERE! I mean, every time I turned around or every time my wedding party turned around, Jessica and Cody were snapping pics of something or someone! Even after I told them they were good to go, they wanted to stay to take pictures of candid moments :) And then there’s the actual photos! Great quality and edits and I only have my sneak peeks! I can’t wait to see the rest of the photos because I know they will be amazing. It was awesome to have two photographers vs just one and it just brought an ease of mind. Thanks Cody and Jessica!!

Cara was awesome!! She was very organized beforehand and during the wedding. I didn't need to feel stressed about getting everybody together, because she did this for me. She was really great with making a timeline and keeping the timeline moving during the day of the wedding. She was even willing to stay for longer than we originally asked of her so we could get some extra solo shots with the sunset. The few pictures that we have received so far are beautiful! When I saw the photo I have attached I said to myself "There is no way this is MY wedding photo! It looks like a fairytale! And it really IS mine!" I was blown away. And we will be hanging this picture up in our house for sure!!

Kaitlin was easy and enjoyable to work with for our wedding. She took the time to set up a list of priority shots and find out what was most important to us. She was very quick to provide the digital copies and also send a very cool Zip drive with the photo ms as well. We’d definitely work with Kaitlin again if we had the need for a photographer

    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.
