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.

Bergey Photo, rocks! Rey and Veronica are a pleasure to work with and provided a fantastic experience for our holiday party. The photo booth and accessories were fantastic and everyone was impressed by the high quality customized photo strips. In addition to the photo booth, we hired Rey to take photos during our event; he really captured the spirit of the party. Thanks Rey & Veronica!

Damon was awesome to work with! He showed up on time, we had a few phone conferences prior to the wedding which helped and made me feel confident about the day and the pictures came out amazing! He was not like other photographers who at times can be pushy or demanding but still gave his professional insight. I would highly recommend him for your next event.

I have to say that my experience with Willam was very disappointing. From the beginning he was hard to get a hold of and was never available for calls or meetings. I understand that we all are busy, but isn't meeting with clients how you maintain your business? I always had to reach out to him to see what the status was with our engagement and wedding pictures. Because William was so busy, he didn't even shoot our pictures. The photographers that we decided to go with through him were beyond amazing! It felt like they actually cared about creating this amazing moment for us. William never called to ask how the session went with the other vendors or if we were satisfied. He was always quick to ask for payment but not quick to provide great service. Again, after receiving my wedding photos there was no follow up to see if I was satisfied or if I had even gotten them. The whole process was sad. I wish I would have gone with the actual photographer that shot our wedding. I would have been willing to pay more for her, she was definitely worth it. She was kind and asked questions that William never even bothered to ask. It was concerning when the photographer mentioned her surprise that communications were lacking from William and she was shocked at the level of service that we were getting. We had to ask for a few sneak peeks from our wedding almost three weeks after the wedding. Our photographer mentions that this what she normally does two to three day after and it is something most photographers do as well. Only after sending William an email asking him about this did he send us anything. While we did get a great price for our photos, I don't believe that means that we should get a lower experience. If we weren't worth his time he shouldn't have taken us on as clients. When a bride is planning her wedding the relationships that she forms with the vendors can really enhance or complicate the experience. This experience in all was just very sad.

HKB Photography does all the things I think anyone would want a professional photographer to do. He is very responsive (pro-active even), accommodating, and his photos are top notch. What set him apart though, was his level of flexibility during our shoot. He respectfully and patiently let our group follow its own creative meanderings and offered very insightful thoughts to guide them as well. When it was needed he took charge and recommended and shaped photos that ended up being the best among those taken. For anyone looking for exceptional value without compromising very high level results I suggest you book with HKB immediately.

Elizabeth is one of the most naturally talented photographers I've ever had the pleasure of working with. Her visual intuition and compositional mastery lead to her capturing strictly unique moments. Her work shows proficiency and an understanding of technical photography. She consistent;y identifies thematic and narrative elements in her portraits, which leads to a greater resolution of her subject as a whole. I cannot recommend a better professional photographer.

Joan is a wonderful teacher. You can tell she has a passion for photogrophy and that shows in her teaching. She takes the time to explain your own camer and then takes you out into the field to practice getting shots. I would recommend her to every new photographer like myself. She helped me grasp the concept and I'm able to take good shots after just two lessons!

We could not have dreamt of a better photographer for our wedding this past October! He was great to work with throughout every step of the process: consistent with communication and understanding our preferences prior to the wedding, creative and engaging during the event, and he provided the most touching, innovative package with which to deliver our prints. In addition to great charisma, the photography was exceptional. He really captured the details and candid moments that were important to us. We are so grateful for care and skill applied to make our day truly special!

James Kern Photography was a pleasure to work with. He showed up on time and ready to go. He asked very good questions so as to get a pulse for what the expectations were for the event. His set up was very professional and added more of a certain elegance to our event. After the event, Mr. Kern wasted no time at all in getting the photos to me. I fully recommend this service to anyone who is looking for a photographer who is reasonable on price and top notch in skills and equipment.

Courtney is very nice and friendly and creates a comfortable environment while taking photos. She also replied emails efficiently. As I provided few pictures what I prefer, she came out with some great idea and suggestion. The result turned out to be fantastic and I love it. I strongly recommend Courtney as your photographer.

Kelley was UNBELIEVABLE. Right on time, sweet as could be, super professional in every way. She added so much to my best friends bridal shower yesterday and even sent me a couple preview pics, which look amazing. I can’t wait to see the rest. You won’t be disappointed if you use this business to capture photos at your event.

Mike Hickman's tremendous attention to detail in terms of staging a photo is some of the most meticulous I've ever witnessed. His creative ability to frame a shot perfectly using everything from the sun's angle to a piece of reflective insulation has been awesome to observe and his work speaks for itself. You will struggle to find a more professional, capable or flexible photographer and I would recommend his services for any event, particularly those which would mean the most to you. As a performing arts teacher, my students have been the subjects of Mike's efforts for a few years now and the moments, both static and dynamic, he has captured for them have been nothing short of incredible. Please note Mike's outstanding work in the attached photo!

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.

    I do not want the standard family reunion pics. I want to capture more of the essence of the family gathering. For ex. I might want to talk with you about taking the welcome pics in black and white with color splashes as I am more interested in capturing emotion and togetherness than colors of clothing, etc. I would like for the individual family portraits to be somewhat unique in nature; thus, it might be interesting to offer some unique props, shadows, fading, etc. as opposed to simply standing up and saying "cheese". I want the event to have an artistic flair in the memories that we will capture in the photos.
