It was great working with the photographers. We were just supposed to have one photographer, but we ended up with two, so more photos! It was an outdoor wedding and the weather didn't fully cooperate; the photographers did a good job working with the elements and caught some nice moments.

Ryan is an incredibly talented photographer! I went to him for new acting headshots, and was not disappointed at all. He is friendly and easy to talk to, and was willing to talk through what was working and what was not with each photo. I would definitely recommend visiting him for your photo needs!

Juan was great to work with. We had a small courthouse wedding with a five minute ceremony, but we wanted to get dressed up and a professional photographer anyway. We had a limited budget, and other photographers came in with lower offers, but we felt more comfortable that Juan would help us with great photographs that we could share with all of the friends and family that couldn't be at the actual ceremony. Juan was on time, excited for us while also being professional, and was able to cater to special requests. Even though we were a small wedding, we felt that Juan gave us the same attention as if we were throwing a huge bash, and we were thrilled with the quality of the photos and the timeliness of his delivery.

I am thrilled to have Stefani as our wedding photographer; she handled a the chaos of coordinating pictures with 60+ people, rainy weather, and low lighting. She answered all of my questions, listened to my concerns, was reassuring, and did it all with a smile. It was a wonderful experience!

Top notch service! It was an absolute pleasure to work with the photographers at Impression Arts. Not only were they really nice and fun to work with but they were consummate professionals and their creativity rendered fantastic photos. I could not have asked for anything better. They captured the best in our wedding ceremony and reception and we'll remember it for the rest of our lives.

Adam was wonderful to work with. He helped to put our staff at ease and captured some very professional images. He even offered to come and re-shoot any that we needed without charging us extra. The images are exactly what we were looking for. He is both prompt and extremely reasonable. I would recommend him to anyone looking for an experienced photographer. We will be using him going forward.

We spoke over phone and Shiva came to the venue on time and covered the whole event. After the event he was in constant touch and gave me updates on the video and photo edits of how they have been shaping up. I would definitely recommend Shiva and hire him for my next event.

One of the better photographers I've worked with in the past. Most of the photographers on thumbtack are a scam or aren't actual photographers. I was skeptical at first but was happy to be proved wrong. Will work with again in the future.

Alex was great. He even showed up a little bit early to get the lay of the event, which I appreciate. He captured some great moments while also blending in with the party. He turned the photos around to me within 2 days, which is pretty fast. Thanks!

Sarah Haimes has truly been a dream to work with. I started booking her travel dates and can't be even more thankful for having her be the one to document very precious moments of my life. She is primarily a wedding photographer, but OMG you know it's talent that no matter the time of day, or the location, or the genre of portraiture. Because Shuttergram Photography PREFORMS. That is the true beauty of working with a professional! Shuttergram Photography stands out from other photographers in the industry because of her unique eye and artistic approach to all sessions. She has strong work with single subjects all the way to group photos for families or wedding portraits. But what really gets me is her artistic editing and knowing how to highlight your best features that make you feel like a million bucks. I'm a proud client and supporter of Shuttergram Photography. And I've been contemplating on a vow renewal just so I can get wedding portraits with her artistic vision!

Jessica is hands-down the best photographer in the area. We couldn't be more happy with the photos she took for our wedding. We wanted someone who could take quality photos inside and outside, and Jessica could do both well. Almost every other photographer I looked at had pictures that looked fake, or were blurry inside. She was the best photographer we could find, and in our budget too! She was wonderful to work with and it was a lot of fun having her capture our special day. I recommend her highly.

Chad was absolutely awesome. As this being my first photo shoot, he was funny and professional. He actually had ties and a watch if I needed one just in case. The attention to detail and the photo advice was priceless. I have found my new photographer as I could not imagine going to someone else.

It could've all been a disaster, but it wasn't. Most people have the notion that super heroes wear capes and/or a mask, but I don't. Crystal Genes is a superhero, who by the way happens to be a professional photographer. Our engagement photo shoot was scheduled for a Friday evening but somehow, I had the belief that it was scheduled on Thursday. My fiancée payed for her makeup to be done that Thursday, we rushed home to get ready, we arrived at the meeting point for our shoot 15 minutes before the start time. And as I messaged Crystal that we were at the location, she messaged me back, confused because our photo shoot wasn't that day but the following evening. My heart sank immediately. I can't believe I was so anxious to take our engagement pictures that I "assumed" it was on Thursday instead of Friday. Luckily, Crystal and Rob were sympathetic enough to reschedule their Thursday evening plans to accommodate this last minute change for my fiancée and I. It could've been a disaster, but it wasn't. So thank you and Rob for saving the day. -Jay and Susan

My wife and I hired Chris as our wedding photographer. He was professional, arrived early, and was flexible with our requests. Everyone loved the photos he took. He found some great backgrounds near our venue to use. The pictures ranged from very candid to staged; but all of them looked awesome! We were lucky to have hired such a great photographer last minute. We'd highly recommend Chris to anyone looking for an event photographer.

    Carla is a joy to work with. She makes you feel comfortable, has an eye for capturing beauty, and knows exactly when to press the shutter—always able to capture the most perfect moments. She takes your vision for a shoot and delivers exactly what you were looking for, but is also incredible at art directing herself. She’s not just a person behind a camera—she acts as a friend would, as if she’s known you forever. Carla is a superb photographer, and anyone would be crazy not to book her.

    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.
