Really great experience overall, and we strongly recommend him. We looked at a lot of photographers and tried another one out for our engagement photo, but weren't overly satisfied with them. In our search for a photographer for the wedding day we found Michael on thumbtack and thought his work stood out among the photographers that sent us quotes and we weren't disappointed. We are extremely satisfied with the final products. Michael prepared us prior to the wedding day and on the Wedding day was, along with his assistant, extremely pleasant to work with, punctual, very organized, and unobtrusive at the event, yet very engaged in giving you the photographs you want. We had a rather large event (120 guests). Michael and his assistant went from bridal party preparations (starting fairly early), to Church preparations and then the ceremony, to the reception, which were all located a fair distance from one another. He managed to get excellent photos throughout that 12 hour + stretch. Again, we were very satisfied with the experience and the final products. We strongly recommend him.

Jamie is a classic! She likes to photograph naturally and let's the beauty show through. She has a unique eye and always gives 110%. I wouldn't have any other photographer. She listens to her clients and the turn around for the photos is great! Check out her work! You will not be disappointed!

Maggie is awesome to work with because she is very mellow about the whole process. I asked Maggie to take some family photos for me and she was amazing She interacted with the kids and encouraged them to be silly and from that we got some adorable pics of the kids playing in the leaves and with pumpkins. Maggie worked quickly which is important when you have two kids who want to do things on their own terms. I couldn't have asked for a better photo session and as always she was sweet about everything. Her turnaround was awesome too, two weeks later I had my prints! By far the best photographer I've ever worked with!!!!

The best part of our photo session, for me, was Angela's patience. Anyone with small children knows how stressful family pictures can be. I typically dread them, bc my kids don't cooperate. My daughter wasn't feeling like getting her picture taken, but Angela didn't make me feel stressed. She didn't act like she had somewhere else to be and she worked with us. That helped me relax. It was nice bc Angela came to us and she also offers cd's with the rights released. And her prices were very reasonable and competitive with other local photographers. I also love how she captures the true moment and doesn't edit like crazy. I hate fake photos... takes away from the realness. You can't go wrong with Angela Drake Photography!

Selecting Madeline as our wedding photographer was a great decision! We had already seen her in action and the end results with my sister's wedding that occurred the prior year, so it was a no-brainer to hire her for ours. She was professional throughout and very responsive throughout the planning process. Even my husband, who was skeptical about needing wedding photos altogether, has enjoyed sharing them with friends & family. We love every moment captured from the day and it looks like we hired a photo journalist for the occasion, not a typical wedding photographer!

An absolutely wonderful experience, She is an amazing photographer my pictures turned out so great that I couldn't even believe it was me. What impressed me the most was her love and passion and willingness to bring out the best product. I would absolutely work with her again no doubt.

I've met Ruth about a year ago and you can tell a passionate photographer when you see one. She captured photos of our event with calm and incredibly intuitive, captured every moment sensitively and accurately, her photos tell a story. Highly recommended to anyone.

I have been photographed by Stephanie several times. Most recently twice for a gender announcement and then again for maternity photos. She listens to what you envision and makes it happen! She caters to your every need or request. Her turn around time is usually within a few days. She will continue to be my first and only xhoice photographer!

My experience with Every Heartbeat Photography has always been positive. Fallon has a great personality and a passion for photography that is unparalleled. Her photos are genuine and capture all of the little moments in life that are often missed by the naked eye that can be cherished forever. I thoroughly enjoyed working with Fallon and would recommend her to anyone looking for a wedding or birth photographer.

John has done a few photo shoots for us and we have been extremely pleased with the results. They have been for holiday cards, family photos and two senior portraits and photos. His work is meticulous. We have referred him to a few others and they have been pleased as well. His 30+ years as a photographer show in his work.

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.
