Nicole was so flexible and friendly. She understood that photography was important on our wedding day, but it wasn't the primary concern/ activity. She was quick, kind, and has an incredible eye. Our photos are breathe taking and her service is impeccable.

Jimmy is a super nice guy who was very attentive to what we wanted for our wedding photography. He shot some beautiful posed portraits along with some great candids. He always seemed to be close at hand during the reception when we asked for photos with specific guests and also took some beautiful shots of our decor and the setting. Spectacular job and a great value!

Ruta was/is such a breath of fresh air and intentional artist in our wedding day experience. Getting an excellent wedding photographer was one of my biggest anxieties as I was a bride from the west coast planning a wedding on the east coast, and knowing most of my family would be experiencing my wedding only through the photographs taken. In addition, I was grieving that my niece who is a fabulous natural light Canadian photographer would not be able to attend and capture our wedding, so had a degree of skepticism while we explored photography professionals. Also, as the photographer follows you throughout the day in potentially intimate and emotional times, having a person(s) who you feel connection with and trust implicitly was so important to us! Ruta came alongside us on our special day with her assistant John. They were both a delight and knew their craft. Even when we were talking with Ruta in advance of our wedding, she made recommendations to adjusting the hours of our wedding to better maximize the best light we could expect on that particular day. We loved how she and her assistant just went about their work, but would ask and give direction as needed. The few photographs that we received (within a few hours of our wedding!!!) give us hope of a great portfolio to come. I love the use of natural light photography and have always been drawn to that art. If there was one thing I would suggest for improvement would be to have another person be around to make sure that collar points are where they need to be, hair is looking fresh, etc. as several of the photographs could have been improved with those details fixed. We would highly recommend Ruta and her crew. She's both a lovely person as well as knows her craft well. My niece who is a well-known and published professional natural light in Canada agrees that the photographs we've received so far are really great! You won't be disappointed! Thank you Ruta for helping to capture our special day that we had worked toward so hard for, in reality, so many years! You're the best and we appreciate you so much!

LeeAnn is an amazing photographer. I am absolutely enamored with the pictures she took at my wedding in December. LeeAnn made sure she caught the essence of the day, and delivered fun, fresh and beautiful pictures that really captured the moment. I highly recommend her and can’t wait to book her for our Anniversary photo shoot in a few years.

If you're looking for a high quality and affordable photographer in the Charleston area, look no further. She is professional, creative, and best of all down to earth! She'll make you feel comfortable while catching those special moments. Her work speaks for itself. Again, there are lots of options in Charleston and there are definitely MANY amazing, talented photographers to choose from. However, if you want super high end feeling images without taking out a second mortgage, Belisia is the way to go!

It was a delight working with Emma. She went above and beyond to help capture our engagement moment and then she added a short impromptu engagement photo session on the end. She even enlisted the help of her husband and child to stand in and hold the perfect spot for the proposal. Emma is very professional, quick to respond, reasonably priced, and her work is amazing! I would recommend her to any and all for your photography needs. We could not be any more happy with our choice of photographer. We'll definitely be contacting her about our wedding photography in the coming months. Thanks, Emma!

Mechelle was great. She was easy to contact and answered any questions I had to make me feel at ease. I hired her for my intimate wedding and the photos are beautiful. She visited the site in advance and had a feel for it before our big day.

I can’t speak enough as to how awesome it was to work with Laura. It was my first time hiring a professional photographer for a vacation trip to Charleston and with how Laura handled it, truly a blessing. She and her husband kept my boyfriend and I at ease the whole time during the shoot that before we knew it, our time with them was over. Great experience for great company in a great location for the price! Thank you Laura!!

Braska captures the most amazing and beautiful photographs, which is obviously the most important thing to think about when you're deciding on a wedding photographer, and Braska also goes above and beyond. She helped us to figure out our wedding day timeline so that we wouldn't feel rushed and so that we would get as many images as possible during the day. And then on the wedding day she was prepared to deal with anything that came up - she is super experienced and resourceful! On our day, my bouquet was not quite what I had imagined, and she totally re-made my bouquet the day of the wedding in between getting all the photographs that we wanted, and the bouquet was absolutely gorgeous. Braska also brings a level of joy and fun wherever she goes, and she helped us to feel comfortable while she was taking our pictures. We love Braska and were so happy that she was a part of our day.

Cecillia did an extraordinary job photographing my best friend's wedding (which was my wedding gift to the bride). She was extremely talented in staging a variety of very special photos; she was also gifted in dealing with the very young flower girls. On top of her skills, she was absolutely lovely and personable to deal with -- leading up to the event and that day. I would hire Cecillia B Photography again in a minute.

    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.
