Ray was nothing short of AWESOME! From the day we hired him as our photographer to now, he was been very easy to contact. I don't think I ever waited longer than a couple hours for a response. A few hours before our engagement shoot, I decided to add a location, and Ray was accommodating (and even told us about a great lake to shoot at-- great photos!). Some photographers would have said "sorry", but Ray was excited with the new idea. Fast forward to the wedding day.... it rained!!! (A bride's worst nightmare) However, Ray and the second photographer, Laurie, made the BEST of the space, and the photos turned out stunning! When there was a break in the rain, they took the opportunity to go outside with us. We even have some great photos with a simple black umbrella. I literally have hundreds (a couple thousand, really) photos from the entire day... All the special moments were captured. We even had access to our entire photo collection about a week and a half after the wedding date. I recommend Ray to shoot other weddings! (I wanted add some photos straight from the wedding photo gallery, but I cannot figure out how to make them smaller than 10MB!)

John Williams of HD Perfect is a fantastic photographer. He is very professional and creative and takes the time to make sure to get the best photos. Whether you need photos for personal or business John can take of you! I needed some professional head shots for my business and for internet marketing. Not only was he great to work with, but he really knows the technical aspects of photography. Having a photography background myself, I’m very selective in who I choose to take photos. I didn’t like being the subject but he was very patient with me and the many outfit changes I needed. He helped to make me feel very comfortable and it was fun. Before we got started John took the time to take some test shots to make sure I got the look I was going for. All the photos were amazing! Also, John was available and quick to reply to any emails or questions before the photo session. I highly recommend choosing John for your photography needs. I will definitely be calling him again for other events, professional or personal photo needs. Thanks John! Melissa

Laurinda has photographed some of my grandchildren over several years and I have always been so impressed with those beautiful, creative photos. So when I needed a professional photographer to capture my extended family reunion in priceless photos, I knew who to ask. We were all meeting the day after Christmas so that's when we scheduled her to come. Then her family changed their family Christmas get-together to that day. However, Laurinda kept her commitment to photograph our lively bunch. The day happened to be windy but she dealt with that. I anticipated it was going to be very stressful and some family members were worried that having the photography session would be chaotic and take away from our limited time to be together. Laurinda arrived with treats and charmed everyone ( even all 11 children under the age of 8). It actually turned out to be really fun and she was so fast! I'm always getting compliments on the end product. Laurinda is a wonderful person and photographer in all respects.

I Loved Ken from the moment we spoke on the phone. He had great ideas on how he was going to do the photoshoot to best capture our home. He followed thru on those ideas and the pictures came out great! I shared them with some of my real estate agent friends and they all wanted his contact info. He will be my go to photographer for all things since I found out he does more then photograph houses. I suggest Ken 100%.

Michael is a very professional photographer. The headshots that I took were delivered so quickly. I especially liked that he traveled to my location and set up quickly. Not really an issue but the one picture I really liked my hair was out of place. I wish he would have pointed that out but he was probably more focused on getting the best shot. I’d hire him again for a corporate headshot.

I hired Autumn for my first ever boudoir photo shoot and it was AMAZING. Understandably it was a little awkward, but she made it as painless and possible and helped coach how to move and what to do. The pictures came out fantastic! If I ever need any other professional photographer again she will be my first call!

I've worked with photographers for more than 20 years as a newspaper reporter and magazine writer and editor. Jeremy delivers work on a par or better with any photographer I have worked with and presents next to no ego. He's about getting the job done and meeting his client's expectations, period.

Deb is an excellent photographer as well as an exceptional professional to work with! Our daughter's wedding photos were creative, beautiful, soulful and captured EXACTLY the tone and personalities of the moment and of everyone involved. Deb is also flexible and personally accountable. I can't say enough, easy and a delight for planning, particularly since we hired Deb remotely and the wedding day photography went off without a hitch! I highly recommend Deb for photography projects of any kind and would use her again without hesitation.

This was my first headshot photo shoot, and I couldn't have asked for a more guiding and humorous photographer! She was great at getting me to express genuine emotions, and sifted through the numerous photos taken in order to find the most expressive ones!

Matt was the ideal photographer from start to finish! He made the day feel care free and easy, when it would typically be stressful and nerve wracking. Matt will make you comfortable in your own skin, and will make your special event that much more special. If I ever need a photographer again, I'd never call anyone before Matt. Can't say enough how great he is at his craft :)

Describing how INCREDIBLE Kyle is is like describing the vastness of the universe: no words can compare to such greatness! When I was in search of some new family portraits, I knew I wanted superior quality and a modern style, but of course at a price I could reason. After weeks of getting no where after countless let downs of potential photographers, a mentor of mine suggested Kyle Beerman. Known for his enthusiasm, creativity, and empathy, Kyle came across as a brother who I've never had but have always longed for when we first met to discuss my wants and desires for my photos. He was professional in his approach to the job, but personal in his approach to our relationship. We were able to set up our shoot and he took care of everything! I value someone who knows their craft so well, they make others feel confident and prepared along with them. Kyle fits this bill to a tee. We were able to narrow down our ideas for the shoot and execute it all within budget. I recommend Kyle for all of your photo and video needs. He will exceed your expectations and treat you like family rather than a client. And to top it all off, he even sent me a hand written card in the mail a few weeks after our shoot wishing my family and I a happy New Year! We love you Kyle!

Extremely Short-Notice Surprise Engagement Chris was amazing. The pictures taken were top-tier, all without having ever taken pictures at my specified location before, or even meeting him in person prior to. Coordination is no issue with this photographer. 10/10 - would have him take pictures again.

I hate having my picture taken, but was required to have a headshot by my company. I did a lot of searching online and was referred to Nashville Corporate Photography. I worked with a photographer named Nicole and she surprisingly made the whole process enjoyable! I LOVE my new pics, my husband loves them, and I get lots of compliments from everyone else as well. I couldn't be more pleased with the professionalism and quality of the photos.

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.
