Roxy and her assistant (her daughter) were fantastic to work with. She was flexible when our meeting plans had to change for our initial meet and greet. We clicked with her right away, as she was very friendly and willing to hear us out regarding our preferred photography style. We were also very concerned about privacy and licensing issues. Roxy was more than willing to work with us on this and provide services that met everyone's needs. We had a destination wedding and although we traveled to Charleston and met Roxy in person, the majority of our communications were via email and all payment was done online without hassle. She provided 8 hours of photography services for our wedding and a majority of the time we forgot she was even there. She was very professional but also mindful of the wedding timing and demands on the bride and groom on wedding day. We strongly recommend hiring Roxy for your wedding.

We had an amazing experience with EyeTonic Photography. Jimmy was very flexible and responsive when deciding on time and location for our photo shoot. During the shoot he was very accommodating, especially of our 2 year old, and worked very hard to get the perfect lighting, angles, and smiles. I remember at one point he was jogging ahead of us to get a fun shot of us walking and swinging our little one up in the air. Dedication! The photographs Jimmy took were amazing, I still can't believe how many wonderful shots he was able to take in such a short time. The turn around time in getting us our images was extremely quick. I am beyond satisfied with our experience and would highly recommend! Jimmy was a pleasure to work with and we wish him all the best!

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!

James was great to work with. We were able to take some great pictures downtown with the hour we had. We walked all around downtown and James had a great eye for locations to take some great professional pictures. We finished up around 5 on Sunday, and he had 32 edited pictures to me the next morning. What a great surprise. I would highly recommend James for any photography needs you may have.

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!

Booked the shoot on Friday for the following Monday. Shoot was completed on time and as scheduled that day. Received the shots literally 2 hours later and they are FANTASTIC. If you're looking for a professional and punctual photographer with tremendous photography skill, she is it. Really enjoyed working with Wendy and will definitely be booking her for other projects when they arise. Really love the photos. Thanks again!

Anna Newsom Photography did a fabulous job of capturing the most memorable and beautiful photos of our daughter before her senior prom and senior pictures. As Anna was taking the photos it seemed to be more like a like calling that she was enjoyong than a job she holds. Anna was very professional, timely, and creative with the ideas to capture the most candid photos. We will definitely call on Anna Newsom Photography again!

Travis was awesome to work with. He maintained an open mind which allowed him to take some really creative shots. From replying to my initial inquiry, to the day I received my final product, he maintained the attitude of true professional. His ability to adapt to changes was outstanding. I look forward to working with Travis again in the very near future!!

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.
