I had an excellent experience with Chris. He came to my home on short notice to take a series of professional portrait photos. He turned around the entire set of completed photos to me by the following day. The photos were excellent quality and Chris had imposed a variety of backgrounds. Unfortunately, I was not pleased with the way I looked in the photos (nothing having to do with the quality of the photos) so I contacted Chris and he happily agreed to return to my house the following day to take another series where I could make some adjustments in my facial expressions. I made sure to check the photos on his camera before he left that time to be sure I was happy with the originals before he went back to edit them. The only exception I took to Chris’ approach was that he did not provide clear instruction on head positioning and facial expression, (normally in my experience with professional photographers, they are good at telling you to tweak certain things about your body and head positioning, facial expressions, etc. based on the type of photo being taken). It’s those small things that normal people aren’t aware of when they’re having their photo taken which we must rely on the photographer to tell us to get the best photo. For this reason, I recommend asking Chris to see the originals on his camera to ensure you are happy with how you look before he goes back to edit. Once you have seen the originals and are happy with them, he will work his editing magic and send you wonderful final products.

If Daniel has availability for your project, do not hesitate in booking him! In owning a marketing company, I speak to a lot of professionals in various industries, and I always place an emphasis on customer service and communication. Daniel is a top grade professional with phenomenal work ethic, great communication, and a fantastic personality. He was so great with my clients in taking their headshots and team shots, and not only made them feel completely at ease, but he also worked around their crazy work schedules, worked around their various meetings throughout the day, and ended up staying the whole day to capture facility shots- all without blinking an eye, causing drama, or giving any kind of push back. He's patient, respectful, professional, easy going, creative, an exceptional photographer, and just all around great to work with. I would 100% hire him again. He really is that good!

My company hired Tracy to do our staff headshots. She and her team were very professional AND personable. She offered to do a site visit (unlike other photographers who contacted me about the job) to identify best spots to set-up. She listened to our requests and our concerns and was able to give us her creative input. She put all of our staff at ease while they took their photo - something to note since some of our older staff were reluctant to take the photo at all. Quick turnaround for the photos too. And overall, excellent quality! We all jokingly said the photos came out so well that we didn't even recognize each other. I'm glad I found Tracy via Thumbtack. I highly recommend hiring her for all your corporate and personal projects.

Riaz and I were originally put in touch as fellow creatives in the Houston community. Since then, he's become my go-to for local professional photography work. Whatever I'm looking for, I know Riaz will deliver quality, cost-effective results. He's smart, professional, approachable, and my headshots with him have always exceeded my expectations -- I will definitely hire him again for my future photography needs!

Dom is the best in the business! Choosing him as our photographers for our AirBnB photos was the best decision we made. Dom made the whole process enjoyable and it was a joy to work with him. In addition to his professionalism, his work exceeded our expectations. He has a true natural talent for photography and was able to capture every special part of our condo that meant the world to us. His communication was consistent, effective, and efficient, plus his precision to detail is amazing. If you want the most authentic, unique, and awesome photos in town, Dom is your guy. My wife and I can’t wait to use him again for our other properties!

I am a pro bodybuilder and I needed to get set up with head shots for my competition. I was running out of time to complete this before my show. I called around to many different businesses that were very rude and unprofessional. I reached out to Bread & Water for immediate assistance. I told them my situation and they made it a top priority to satisfy me as a new customer. They went out of their way to make sure that the photos were done professionally and on time. My photos turned out amazing and the service was excellent. They will be taking my wedding photos. I highly recommend Bread & Water to anybody that needs professional photographs or make up and the professional Service that backs it up. Thank you so much!!!

Lori of Savvy Couture Photography was a godsend! I needed a wedding photographer with only 2 weeks notice, and not only was Lori able to accommodate me and my location (which was totally across the city of Houston for her), but she was able to make time to meet with me and my now-husband to ensure that we get the types of photos that we wanted for our special day. Very little instruction for her was necessary as she is proactive in taking photos that fit your style. Thank you, Lori (and Jackie!) for capturing our short, but very meaningful event! We loved the photos!

Daniel did the photograpy for our wedding and reception on June 27th. He showed up 30 minutes early and took a few final requested shots after our allotted time was up. Daniel did a great job with a complexed situation. We were married on our boat and Daniel was all over it to get some great shots. He took photos from the bow, the stern, the second story fly bridge and the third story tuna tower. He had some creative compositions that proved to be "spot on" in the final photos. We looked into several photographers for our wedding and are very pleased that we went with Daniel at Positive Studios. He was not the least expensive nor the most expensive photographer, but we liked the detail in his sample photos. Daniel had our final photos ready for us in two weeks. I would highly recommend Positive Studios to anyone looking for a wedding photographer.

Prior to our photo shoot, our family requested to reschedule the session due to multiple last minute considerations. Sui Generis was more than accommodating each time and quite responsive to our requests. Sui Generis was punctual and extremely professional. The locations were scouted prior to our arrival, and Sui used creative poses to give our photos a fresh feel. Working with children and the elderly can be challenging, but Sui did a marvelous job at ensuring the personalities of each family member were captured in picture. We can't place a value on the timeless pictures taken. Their quality of work is second to none! We highly recommend and will use them again.

We found Marco as a professional and pleasing personality. His punctuality and diligence is definitely worth the money. As an upcoming photographer, he is open to ideas, respectful to client and follows directions well when asked. Only suggestion is he can be a little more proactive with guests when taking event photos. In any way, he took some great photos for us that were liked by our friends and family!!!

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.
