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

Abbe was very easy to work with, and very responsive to what I was looking for in a surprise proposal. She helped me every step of the way. I wouldn’t have been able to pull this amazing day that my fiancée and I will remember forever, without her. I would recommend Abbe to anyone who is looking for a photographer a thousand times over again. I cannot thank Hernandez enough for what she helped me accomplish.

From my first encounter on Thumbtack, Matt was friendly, helpful, and respectful. I have not hired a photographer or had professional photos done since my thirty something children were tweens. Matt answered all my questions and was responsive to requests and ideas. He was not familiar with the location I wanted to use, but he was open to anything. He explored the location in advance of our appointment and offered suggestions for our photos. He offered ideas and collaborated with us regarding our needs and desires for groupings. He took a variety of photos with different groupings Within our family. He was patient with our grandchildren, a strong minded 2 year old and 3 month old. He was personable and spent time getting to know us before beginning the photos. He was creative and professional. He was LGBT friendly. I would highly recommend Matt for informal photos of your family. The professional skills he presented should carryover into any photography session, informal or formal. Thanks Matt!!

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.

When my construction company needs photography work done out of state, I turn to Thumbtack. High Flying Photography responded quickly and within only a few days of my initial request I had professional photos in hand of the new commercial building. He worked with my customer to schedule the shoot and offered multiple ways to receive and download the final photographs. I would absolutely use High Flying Photography again and recommend them fully.

I hired Julie to photograph my wedding in 2014. Her prices were very competitive and my package included our engagement session. She even drove to State College so my fiancé and I could have a Penn State themed engagement session. On my wedding day, she not only took amazing photos but stayed with me the whole day so I didn't have to worry that all of our special moments wouldn't be captured. I was extremely pleased with the quality of our photos and found that they rivaled the work of other photographers who were far more expensive and offered far fewer personal touches. I would highly recommend her to any future bride!

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.

My fiancé and I used Ashley for what I thought were just cute pictures of us, that turned out to be my surprise engagement! Ashley was incredible! She made me feel very comfortable, it was like taking pictures with my best friend! She is very smart and very talented! Our pictures turned out perfect. Overall, the experience was one I will never ever forget and Ashley played a HUGE role in that. She worked with my fiancé before our photos to help him plan everything so that I would be perfect. If you're looking for a photographer who is has great prices, is very helpful and invested in her clients and one who takes great pictures, Ashley is who you need. She is truly a gifted photographer and I highly recommend her to anyone looking to get photos taken! You will not regret using her!

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.

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.

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.
