The service was AMAZING. She is an incredible photographer and helped stage and pose us for the pictures. She also did wonderful candid shots and overall was delightful and very kind and great to work with. I will definitely be using her services again in the future.

Sandy was a pleasure to work with and gave us superb photos. She was willing to go out of her way to ensure that we were completely satisfied with the photographs of our home; which we certainly were. Sandy knew the exact angles and rooms to photograph. She was a delight and we would recommend her to anyone looking for a top notch photographer. Thanks Sandy!

I hired Chris in May 2018 because I needed professional author photos that looked great and set a particular mood. Her package was not only a great value, but she was the first photographer to get back to me with answers to my questions. I quickly booked a photoshoot with her. The photoshoot was a lot of fun, and Chris moved me around the studio to get different poses under the perfect lighting. She was extremely friendly and professional. Within a few days, she sent me the gallery of photos. They were all so great that I ended up buying more than I'd originally bargained for. I plan on using multiple on various storefronts or even switching them out from time to time to let them all shine! I'm attaching photos that Chris took so you can see the various set-ups we used. If you are looking for a photographer to take professional photos of you, Chris is a fantastic choice. She's easy to work with and gets the job done in a short time. This was my first time hiring on Thumbtack and Chris made sure it was a wonderful experience. Thank you!

We met Ashley through our venue and she was a dream!We had terrible experiences with local photographers not just in price but in how controlling they were on the event (one even suggested we through ceremony to the side and meet for a photo shoot before we were married on the day of!). She was very open and made our pre shoot all about us. We can't wait to get married and work with Ashley to capture the event! Definitely give her a call!

What a fantastic photographer! Deepika was polite, friendly and professional while taking our family portrait. She has a great sense of humor and knows how to make people feel relaxed and comfortable. She even got our one-year old to smile! We loved having Deepika take our Easter family photos. In just one mini session we received many quality family photos that we will treasure for years to come. You can bet that we will be coming back! Deepika's rates are affordable and her quality is top-notch. I highly recommend her.

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!!

Absolutely love the photographs that were done. Excellent quality. Best I have ever had. My family and I appreciate all the hard work that was put into keeping our memories in tact. We had a set budget and was more excited to see that the photographer did not go over that budget. AMAZING is all I can say and will send all my friends and family here.

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.
