My daughter had painted some amazing oil paintings! My family and friends all wanted copies. I looked on line as to how to create prints. The only real way is to develop photos of them and prints from the photo's. Thumbtack was great because it gave me 5 professional photographers right in my area. I liked Mike's profile and the amazing work he has done. From there the effort on my part was so easy! Mike picked up the paintings, shot the photos in his professional studio, returned the paintings, and provided the files on line and a link to have prints made. I didn't have to leave the house! I knew the prints had to be made professionally at a high resolution with the proper lighting. I looked at the files on line and they were amazing! I purchased prints, full size matching the size of the paintings and then also several 11" x 14". The prints were awesome! The clarity and detail were almost better than the oil paintings themselves! Mike was so friendly, professional and responsive. It was a great experience! The awe's on Christmas day said it all! I recommend Mike to anyone! Thx! Joe Ross

I hired Jim for head-shots. I would go back to him for another project in a heart beat. Jim is a true professional...very responsive, very accommodating and a very good photographer. The quality of the final product was great...the price was competitive and he's just an all around good guy.

Matthew Porter is by far one of the best photographers I've ever worked with, and I've worked with many. He's very professional and always creates stunning works of art. He is truly passionate about what he does and it shows in his work. He has just relocated not that long ago and he is already missed. Matthew is an unbelievable visionary and has an incredibly unique way of brining his visions, and those of others, to life. I would recommend anyone to work with thus amazing photographer.

John photographed our wedding at the Philadelphia Wedding Chapel and our reception at Maggiano's Little Italy in Center City, Philadelphia. John did an excellent job capturing our special day and could not have been more pleasant to work with. We hadn't had a chance to meet with him ahead of time, so he came to the event "cold". As soon as we arrived, John immediately sought us out, introduced himself, and began capturing pics of us and our guests. His suggestions were spot on, and both his planned and impromptu pics came out beautifully. As one of our family members who attended the wedding and viewed our pictures said: "That's one of the best wedding photographers we have ever seen! He captured so many great candid photos of everyone - if you hadn't been there and you were going through those photos, you would have wished you had been there having fun with everyone! He also picked the perfect shots for the black and white photos ..." It's clear that John loves what he does and his creativity shows in his pictures. He did a great job. We would highly recommend him to others.

A quality photographer is more than simply clicking buttons on a fancy camera. John is an experienced photographer who is able to utilize the number of events and portraits he's done to capture unexpected moments. When hiring someone for a service, I look for honesty, professionalism, punctuality, quality, and skill. John exceeds expectations regarding all aspects, especially punctuality because he shows up early not simply on time. Being familiar to locations is crucial to photography since the essence of a photo is not only to capture the individuals in it but the scenery and mood behind it. When shooting my portrait, John was able to make me feel comfortable and guide me to various poses as I am no professional model. He provides quality photos in a timely manner as I was eager to see my portraits. I have received numerous compliments on my portrait shots. I highly recommend John because he's professional, skilled, friendly, and personable. He is upfront about his price quote, no hidden tricks!

To start, Maria is OUTSTANDING in both attitude and professionalism. About our project, I was seeking a family portrait near my mom’s residents and sought photographers in the PA area (I live in VA). We contacted Maria two months before the project in order to get ideas, costs, and address other planning concerns like color schemes and best times to shoot. Maria provided solid recommendations of ideas and places that were family friendly and within our budget. We settle on Longwood Gardens which provided great backdrops for multiple family poses. My family never been there before, but the place was very calm, warm and inviting and the kids were able to stretch their legs. In the end, I purchased several 8x12s of various poses (given to my wife, brother and sister) and two canvas photos of one pose (one for mom and me). I plan to purchase more as Christmas gifts later this year. I highly recommend Maria if you are seeking a personal and professional photographer who will take the time with you to plan your memorable moment.

Jeff did an amazing job. He arrived before his scheduled time on the day of the event and was very professional. I have seen the work of other professional photographers but Jeff's work was outstanding. He is also very understanding and easy to work with. I will definitely hire him again and would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for professional photography work. Kudos to you Jeff. Keep up the good work.

Alyssa is a photographer that I will continue to use over and over. It's rare that you find a photographer with fantastic prices accompanied by such high quality work. She made me feel so comfortable in front of the camera, she's so personable, and she provided the end product in an incredibly timely manner. While very professional, she made our shoot fun (which is something photography should be!) and she brought a lot of incredible ideas to the table. I cannot recommend her highly enough.

I hired Ashley as a surprise for my (now) fiancé & I engagement. I wanted to surprise my girlfriend so I had asked Ashley to hide/sneak around to capture the photos & moment, in secret. Once I met with her to show the location and see how we could accomplish the task at hand, Ashley came up with a great idea of her own. She suggested that I tell my girlfriend that I entered into a raffle & won a discounted photo shoot for our 7 year anniversary, which would keep the suspicion low for as why I wanted to go to this location, while still keeping the real reason (to propose), a secret. I thought this was a great idea, so I decided to go with it. After already being much help with coming up with the idea, Ashley went even more above & beyond and created a digital gift certificate. The certificate was exactly what I needed to make everything seem truly legitimate to my girlfriend. The experience went 100% as planned. Ashley made my fiancé & I feel extremely comfortable which helped to keep myself as calm as possible, while stressing to execute this plan. Our pictures turned out amazingly & the moment was truly captured. Ashley was in contact the whole time, both before and after. She always made sure my concerns or questions were addressed. To top it all off, you would think that all her time & effort would come at a high cost, wrong. It was very affordable & all the 'extras', such as meeting at the location 2 days prior to map it out and creating a gift certificate, were still included in the original price. Once again this was a terrific experience and I would highly recommend Ashley to everyone!!! I promise if you choose her, you will NOT be disappointed!!! I will definitely hire Ashley again in the future! Thank you Ashley :)

Stephanie is awesome! She responds quickly. We took our engagement pictures at my grandfather's house and she was very nice and personable with me, my fiancé, my mother and my grandpa. She took sweet and creative photos and spent extra time getting all the shots we wanted. And they turned out amazing! She even brought some of her own props! If you are looking for a reasonably priced quality photographer this is it.

I hired Brian to do photos for a guitar lessons website I am in the process if building. I really appreciate how Brian took the time to research what good photographs of guitars and guitarists look like. He was very easy to work with, very receptive to ideas, and most of all the pictures came out great! I highly recommend Brian for any professional photography you may need.

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.
