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.

My husband and I are church pastors and are in constant need of decent pictures to use for various things, so we scheduled a photo shoot with Deanna. She took us to a couple different locations, scoped out the surroundings, and then the rest was history. Artistry in the making! She has a way of looking at things that no one else does! She captures things that I didn’t even know existed and turns them into something that will literally make you catch your breath for a moment. When the pictures were ready, I remember being in awe by the beauty, the angles, the emotion in the pictures, the variety of landscape choices and photography techniques. Not many people have her gift. I also loved how I was able to download every single picture directly to my computer to use any time I wanted! If you’re looking for someone guaranteed to deliver every time, your photographer is Deanna Sammons.

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!

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.

Kalie was so sweet and accommodating for us. She drove a long way to our property so that we could have our photos here, and included our two dogs and horse. We also booked her rather last-minute and she was so wondrful in helping us find a date that would work. She even got my youngest son to smile!! We love our pictures and can't wait to print and share them with our family and friends. Thank you KMJ Photography!! Sincerely, The Hayes'

I hired Jenn to do my maternity pictures. She was so warm and we felt so comfortable with her, like we’d been friends for years. We had a great time and I would definitely book her again. When I got the pictures back I was amazed at the quality of the work! She did an amazing job and is a wonderful photographer.

Abby distinguished herself from the pack at the get go by her warmth, professionalism and competitive pricing. I hired her for my sister's post wedding black tie party as a wedding gift. It was the best decision I made! She perfectly captured the spirit of the evening which was so happy and filled with love. Her eye and her sense of whimsy added a dimension to the photographs of this special evening that I think few photographers could capture. I wish I could give her 10 stars! Thank you Abby!

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.

We had Kevin Perkins come out to one of our outdoor events to capture some of the riders on the track in action. After seeing the photos he took, we were blown away how awesome they looked. Anyone looking for a professional photographer in any setting from weddings, sporting events to nature, he is the man to go to.

Nathan helped me with my headshots for my social media and professional profiles. Not only is he an excellent photographer, but he's just an all around great person. He's professional, kind, and volunteers quite a bit of his time to local nonprofit organizations. I would highly recommend getting to know him and considering him for any photography needs you might have! You will not be disappointed!

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.

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.
