I was looking for a good photographer at an affordable rate within the Austin area when I came across Pablo. He had sent across his quote along with some examples of his work which were pretty cool, but I decided to give him a try after I read his reviews. I was pleased with my experience. He is a warm and personable guy and he did a great job working with my kids to get the best shots. I highly recommend.

Andrea Reesing is an AMAZING photographer with the ability to make anyone and anything look amazing. When shooting with her, I felt completely comfortable and she brought out the best in me!! I got my photos within 24 hours, which I can't say that most photographers do. She has a love for photography that most creative people don't. I will definitely be booking her again!!!!

Mindi was amazing! We had her do our engagement photos and they turner out perfectly. She made us feel so comfortable while taking the pictures(we both don't really like getting our pictures taken). She also had so many recommendations for locations and really tries to work with you to find what is best for you. I wanted my pictures back really fast because we were very excited to announce to every one that we are engaged and she edited the pictures and sent them back to us in just over one day. Her services are very affordable and worth every penny.

Alexander was absolutely incredible! YOU NEED TO HIRE HIM NOW! Unfortunately, my photographer (before Alexander) cancelled on me 15 days before my wedding day. I frantically posted an ask on Thumbtack requesting a photographer on short notice and on a tight budget. Alexander was one of the first to respond and he talked with me for an hour on the phone before I hired him constantly reassuring me that he would do everything in his power to make my wedding day spectacular. In the package that I purchased I also recieved engagement pictures. Due to only having 15 days, Alexander allowed us to shoot engagement pictures the day before our wedding. We drove to his town (an hour outside of Houston) and he had the PERFECT places to shoot pictures. It was a little town with the perfect "small town downtown" buildings. We had an engagement session with our first photographers (that cancelled) and we were underwhelmed with the quality of the photos. Alexander's engagement shoot was more than I could have ever asked for. I felt 100% comfortable going into the wedding day with him as our photographer. Alexander arrived early and was ready to shoot by them time we arrived. He shot as much as he could prior to the wedding to cut down on the pictures after the ceremony. He worked his rear off the entire wedding and ALL of my guests were extremely impressed with him. The two pictures below are just a sneak peek of his work that we have received. I can honestly say without Alexander on our wedding day - the outcome would have been 100% different. If he saw something was frustrating me, he did his best to step in and crack a corney joke to make us laugh. He took charge when he needed too, but he also stayed in the shadows when it was appropriate. I will never hire another photographer and my family will use him/refer him for the rest of our lives. Alexander, you not only captured our big day, but you made it that much better. Thank you for absolutely everything you have done for Brandon and I, I cannot express into words how grateful we are for you. My photographer cancelling was such a blessing in disguise because I got to work with the best of the best. HIRE ALEXANDER, YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT!

Mary was great to work with. 1) She always responded to emails and phone calls quickly. 2) She was flexible with our schedule for the bridal portraits (my daughter lives out of town) and got them back quickly so we could have a print to display at the wedding. She had no problem with the wedding being at our church and the reception at another location. 3) I LOVE her pictures. One thing that impressed me on her web-page was the indoor shots - many photographers have lots of outdoor shots but few indoor ones. The wedding and reception were both inside (it was July!) and she did a great job. She was very discreet and managed to capture the beauty, sacredness, and joy of the day. Somehow she managed to convince my daughter and her husband to step outside for some quick (and wonderful) shots and then continued the magic indoors. 4) Compared to many other photographers, she has very reasonable rates. 5) She truly loves her job and her joy bubbles out to everyone around - it was more like she was an old friend rather than "just" a photographer. I will definitely contact Mary for other occasions!

Both talented and professional are a combination not easily found in a sea of photographers, but Mesh is a rare breed! He has an incredible eye and creates a comfortable environment for all your creative aspirations to come alive, his editing skills supersed your expectations every time and his turn around is prompt. I highly recommend booking a shoot asap no matter if it's portfolio, wedding or album art for musicians he can cover it all and you'll have a blast working with him!

I did not actually have my photos taken by Errich (because a photographer friend was able to do it for less money), but he was very kind and gracious when I canceled and was willing to reduce his price quite a bit as well. I will definitely keep him in mind for next time if my friend is unavailable.

Caroline was exactly what we were looking for. We wanted a few engagement photos that we could put on our wedding website and social media. Her price was affordable and her quality and responsiveness were above and beyond what we expected. Definitely would use her talents again!!

Ryan did an amazing job photographing our event! 150 people, a very large awards program, dancing, great food and decor... She captured it all so beautifully! My best friend and my husband are both photographers and are my usual go-to's for the many charitable and social functions I put on but they were off duty that night. I was nervous that we wouldn't get the same quality and caring from a hired gun (so to speak). But myself and our group members were all so pleasantly surprised that Ryan got some amazing shots and in the challenging environment of a relatively low light hotel ballroom. Excellent job and highly recommended!

Ash is very professional, takes beautiful photos, and comes extremely well prepared. I had zero ideas about our engagement photos and she suggested a beautiful setting, then provided numerous props including fresh flowers and fruit. She is proactive and reached out to me to schedule a wedding logistics meeting. I've been warned by friends that some wedding photographers miss important shots, but based on the timeline and checklist she has prepared, I have no doubts that we will have hundreds of beautiful photos from our day.

Brooke is one of the most attentive photographers I've ever worked with. She's kind and will make you feel like a model, no matter how uncomfortable you feel in front of her camera. She did my engagement and wedding photos and both turned out spectacularly. I have been recommending her as a photographer to all my bride-to-be friends and will be giving her a call anytime I need a photographer. You'd be silly not to hire her.

I met Jeannine through my daughter. When she photographed her nieces with my daughter I knew she should be a professional photographer. Of course Jeannine has only improved with time and you can experience how easy she is to work with.

I have book Kevan's Photography for several different occasions and I am beyond pleased with the work I have received. I am very camera shy but really wanted to do something for myself and Kevan was never short of making me feel very comfortable. He is extremely patient and talented. He gets the vision that you wants and does his absolute best in capturing it. I remember getting mosquito bites all over my back and legs, so much you couldn't ignore and he photoshop the picture for me and created something beautiful. I also requested five pictures and he sent way more than I paid for. I end up having 12 beautiful and edited pictures and very grateful. Ps. He also carry a changing tent/cone so that you are able to change outfits and etc. Truly a bang for whatever service you choose. Thank you again Kevan Photography!

We loved working with Droplight Media! They worked with our budget and were able to accommodate our last-minute request. They also provided digital images in a one-day turnaround when other photographers wanted to charge an arm and a leg for digital copies. We used Droplight Media for a special event and got a mix of portraits and beautiful/artistic candids which is exactly what we are looking for. We highly recommended them!

I love Janelles eye for photography. Unique, artistic and always beautiful- she is the only person we want to work with when it comes to family pics! I love how every picture is not a standard, posed image. She really does a fantastic job at capturing the love in the moment. :)

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.
