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.

Verified review

Damon is very knowledgeable about the logistics of weddings, and was very helpful to us leading up to the wedding by asking useful questions. He arrived a little early giving us ample time to get the photos that we wanted before the ceremony. At the ceremony, he was helpful in advising us on the smoothest order for things to go in, in terms of family portraits, first dance, and cake cutting. We do wish that during downtime at our wedding he would have taken photos of our guests, but this was not something that we specifically communicated to Damon leading up to the wedding. Damon got our photos back to us within a few days, which blew us away! We love our photos and will cherish them for years to come. If you are looking for a photographer that is professional, knowledgeable, flexible, and pleasant to communicate with, not to mention talented, then Damon is the photographer for you!

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.

I've worked with a lot of photographers for various projects, professional and personal, and I've got to say that Phil is the best I've worked with. He has an easy and effortless approach to his work, which puts his clients at ease and produces the most beautiful natural shots (as opposed to awkward and overly staged). We took family shots on the beach with our newborn--no easy feat--and EVERY single picture Phil sent us was a winner. We're hoping to work with him again when our larger family returns to the beach next summer. Thank you, Phil!

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.

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.

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!

Working with Dan was great- he was very responsive to our requests and very accommodating. We just got back the low-res versions of our wedding pictures and we are SO happy with them! He's really incredible at what he does and if we ever need another professional photographer, we'll be calling him.

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!

I had Emma take my engagement photos a while back in a small town in Northwest Arkansas. Emma was all around an amazing photographer; easy to work with, extremely creative and insanely talented. She made us feel comfortable and always had genuine poses to put us in. Nothing felt staged or cliched and she captured our true personalities in those photos. She truly has a gift!

I hired Brian to do photos for a guitar lessons website I am in the process if building. I really appreciate how Brian took the time to research what good photographs of guitars and guitarists look like. He was very easy to work with, very receptive to ideas, and most of all the pictures came out great! I highly recommend Brian for any professional photography you may need.

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.
