The wedding pictures were one of the most important aspects of the wedding to me...other than "the dress" and sure, the groom. Because of the importance of pictures for me as a memory that I could view over and over again to relive the day, I was willing to spend a little money on it than other aspects of the wedding. However, I believe that Sarah's prices are more than reasonable, plus, there is a lot that the customer gets in her packages. First of all, TWO photographers, an engagement sessions, plus all the time that she spends with you photographing your big day. Also, she is friendly and calm...which is a big plus if you are a jittery bride (I was) and have an outspoken, crazy family (me again). She was also helpful in helping me locate a make up artist and locations for shots prior to the ceremony. So my advice to anyone seeking a photographer, check out Sarah's packages and gallery. She is so fun to work with and her pictures are beautiful! Jessica K.

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.

Connie is not only a very fine portrait photographer, but she is also very pleasant to work with. I have used her services for my client Christ Church Cathedral when I needed official portraits of board members and staff. She always did the job within the budget and on time, even when I had her working on a tight deadline. I recommend her highly.

We were delighted with our experience from beginning to end. Brandi was professional, friendly and a pleasure to work with... quickly replying to emails and giving us amazing service on the evening of our event. We were quite nervous about hiring a new photographer for our annual fundraising gala, this being our 10th anniversary. She was very proactive towards getting the right images and generally rounding up the various people needed, would recommend to anyone. We couldn't be happier with the whole experience and the beautiful photos we received afterwards. Thank you so much!

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!

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 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!!

I used the deejaying service for Prom. He took into consideration the songs that the students wanted to hear and was entirely professional the whole event. His price was also unbeatable. Every other service was $200-$300 more. I would highly recommend TKD Memories!

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

Cara was a pleasure to work with and had fun with my silly request to have pictures taken in the spray park. From what I've seen of the "sneak peek" of our photos they are going to be gorgeous! I would highly recommend her since she is one of the few photographers that still does prints.

I had a very positive experience with the photographer. He was very professional yet also personable. It was my first nude shoot and I thought I would feel intimidated, or perhaps shy is a better word, but I was immediately at ease in the studio and it showed in the finished product. I look forward to working with this photographer again in the future.

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.
