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.

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.

We highly recommend Damon. He maintained his professionalism while at the same time making the entire experience personal and fun. Damon is so talented and a pleasure to be around. He was friendly, polite and patient with all of our friends and family members and yet remained invisible most of the time. He had our photos to us within days after the wedding. We were absolutely delighted to be able to view the photos while we were still on our honeymoon. He also produced the most beautiful photos and captured the essence of the day, along with every expression and a clear attention to every last detail of the wedding. We don’t feel like we missed a moment with all of Damon’s photos. We booked Damon for 12 hours and it was best money spent, let alone he was the best price out of the photographers we looked at.

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.

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.

I was always a hard subject for photographers as I considered myself non photogenic but when I met Vik he told me there is no such thing as not being photogenic and boy did he prove my theory wrong. Shooting with him was phenomenal and the way he led the whole shoot was awesome. Since having my pictures shot by him, I can say I am photogenic as long as Vik is shooting me. I highly recommend his services. Vik and PJ are very loving and caring people, you can feel it right when you meet them. The studio and staff of Vikrant Photography are #1 in Philadelphia.

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.

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!

Paul and Kristin were absolutely fantastic! They were hired to capture the candid moments of a surprise 80th birthday. The photos were spectacular, and equally important, they were great to work with. We even had some special requests after the final photos were supplied and they accommodated us without hesitation. I would rate the overall experience more than 5 stars if possible, and I have found my go-to photographer for future events - I already told them - they are hired :)

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.

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.
