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

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!!

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.

Matt was able to schedule me last minute when my first photographer bailed. Steve Buscemi is more photogenic than me, but the headshots Matt took look great. Plus, he made the experience of taking pictures enjoyable. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a photographer.

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.

Jill was in the very least a GODSEND. She not only is incredibly flexible, but creative and certainly had a positive influence over the bridal party as a whole the day of our wedding. I would hire her in a heartbeat again. She made everything so EASY! She also linked us to Carden’s Film who were also very impressive!! Thank you Jill for keeping me sane and even laughing amongst all the chaos. You’re the absolute best!!! 💜

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!

Chase was the photographer at my baby shower - he arrived early, came well prepared, took lovely behind-the-scenes photos, and also provided gentle direction to the many attendees for the group photos that I requested. Additionally, Chase sent the photos to me very quickly after the event and they will be the gift I treasure most from this very memorable day. The photos are very natural and beautiful and I could not be more pleased. I look forward to working with Chase again and I would recommend him to anyone looking for a photographer who is both professional and incredibly talented.

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.

My sister's wedding photography flanked on the day of the wedding. I called him for wedding photographs with only 6 hours notice. He showed up with his team and was very cordial and patient. We are from different cultures, but be blended with my family and the wedding pictures were phenomenal. As a pro photographer myself it is always hard to get someone to work for me. But he made me comfortable and thilus I could enjoy my sister's wedding.

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.
