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.

Jeri is a great photographer, she had many creative ideas for our family photos and incorporated my ideas as well. She has taken our photos several times and I have always been pleased with the results.

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!!!!

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!

    Nikki & Aaron exceeded all our expectations for our wedding. It poured right before we were to walk down the isle, and they whipped into action and still pulled off our dream wedding. They are amazing inside and out and we were truly thankful that they were apart of our special day. I can’t thank them enough and anyone would be a fool not to have them as your photographers!

    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.
