Joe was the photographer for our Barksdale Elementary graduation. Joe did an outstanding job! He was prompt, professional and took exceptional images of the event. All the requirements of the job were met as requested. Joe exceeded our expectations with his attention to detail and the quality of the images. I would definitely hire Joe again to photograph our event.

Billie came with a real bonus: She brought her very capable husband Jeff along (with my permission of course) to act as a supplemental photographer! It was literally getting two for the price of one! They were prompt, courteous, fun and professional. The cost was extremely competitive. Most importantly, they are excellent photographers. They added energy to a very important birthday party and made all the guests feel like celebrities. (They acted at times like paparazzi-- which just added to the feeling of celebration). In addition to the candid shots which created a full "diary" of memories, they came prepared to take more formal shots that were amazing. I was so impressed by the entire experience that I will be hiring them for my upcoming wedding without even considering anyone else. I cannot effectively express just how fabulous they were. Do not miss the opportunity to add them to any event that you want to raise to the next level.

I had a great experience with Friday Photos! They were available on short notice when another local professional photographer had backed out on a patriarch's birthday and family reunion photography session that had been planned in advance with many out-of-town guests. The quality of work was excellent on the still photography shots as well as on the video that was provided, all of them done in high definition (HD) quality. Arrangement of the group and individual family shots was well composed, with patience to wait for the more ideal shots of the small children in them. Highly recommended and will use again!

Lyly recently shot my company's annual retreat and she was simply awesome to work with! She is truly professional having arrived at each location well in advance of our arrival times. Also, her presence during the span of two days was hardly noticeable- not at all distracting like other photographers I have worked with in the past. And her work speaks for itself! Lyly is a storyteller with her photos which moves them past mere documentation and into quality content that I plan to use in my company's marketing materials as well. In short, I will not hesitate to work with Lyly again and will certainly be referring her to others. Thanks Lyly!

Cristi was fantastic! Exceeded our expectations and was a professional in every sense of the word. Loved that he was early which gave us a chance to see if our preferred location would work. He pointed out that we would have the sun in our eyes, not good and found another spot close by which was perfect! We were a large family group with lots of strong personalities. He was able to get us to move along and used humor to make our session fun. Very easy to communicate with and quickly answered all of my questions. We were all coming in from different states and he was very nice about working with the tight schedule we had. I would definitely use him again if I needed a professional photographer for ANY occasion. The pictures come out wonderful and everyone was surprised at how he was able to get us to quit talking long enough to have us all looking in the right direction. Thank you Cristi for making this a fun family memory with loads of beautiful pictures as well!

Verified review

Mr. Ross Stewart is an outstanding photographer. Our Association holds an international conference each year with about 400 attendees in different cities across the U.S. The conference is four days with a variety of events - keynote speakers, formal presentations, banquet and luncheon presentations, awards, breaks, etc. We always ask photographers to capture the dynamic qualities of these events, to show in a still photo the action, engagement and excitement of being there. No one has ever done this as well as Mr. Stewart. He is also the most conscientious, careful, punctual and easy photographer we have worked with for many years. I highly recommend Ross Stewart Photography without any hesitation. He is simply the best. Stuart D. Yoak, Ph.D. Executive Director Association for Practical and Professional Ethics

This power couple is prodigious. I've never been more in love with pictures taken by a photographer. My fiance and I wanted a fun, themed engagement photo session. We decided on the theme of 1950s! Daniel and Hoda took our vision and ran with it. We got to get dressed up in 50s attire and go to the Denton square, where we had a blast taking pictures with them. They got our pictures back to us in a timely manner (which is something I have had issues with in the past from photographers). And what you get for the amount you're paying is unbelievable. They do not charge any fees for travel. They also don't make you pay for every picture you want! Most photographers make you pay a fee for the photo session, and then make you pay a fee on top of that for every single picture you want! Monarch Hill Weddings include the photography session as well as ALL of the pictures from your session-in color AND black and white! Talk about bang for your buck. I also want to point out how humble these two are! They are truly wonderful people to work with. Hoda is the cutest thing, with such an adorable personality! :) They both have a great sense of humor and make taking potentially awkward pictures feel a lot better. ALSO, I want to rave about the style of these photographers. They are not just photographers. They are ARTISTS. I am an artist as well (in the field of dance), so being able to collaborate with artists in a different field is exhilarating. Their pictures showcase their creativity as well as their keen eye for lighting (and all that other stuff you can see when looking at good photographers, but I'm not one, so I don't know all the lingo...camera angles?). I wouldn't recommend anyone else for your engagement and wedding photographers other than Daniel and Hoda with Monarch Hill Weddings. I'm even going to share on here the page with our engagement photos, because if my words do not express their talents enough, you can see for yourself in these pictures.

Josh is a wonderful photographer! Stephen and I enjoyed our session with him. Josh was very patient when it came to working with our puppy. We were blown away with the photos. Josh was able to capture little moments that are very dear to us. We wanted natural photos and that's what we got and more! We can't thank Josh enough for what he has done!

Shelby has been an absolute pleasure to work with. The pictures I’ve seen so far are perfect, and the price was within my budget. I hired her to do photos of my daughter & her family. My daughter is very pleased - she said Shelby made the shoot very fun and a “chill” atmosphere. My 7 month old grandson is smiling and looking content in the few photos I’ve seen, so I say Kudos!! I will definitely hire her when we need a photographer again.

It was a kid's st birthday party. We had two photographers, Joe and Chanel and both were very professional and adaptable. They took guest potraits and candid shots throughout the party and were willing to adapt to the needs of the party. They arrived on time and stayed till the time as per our contract. We will definitely rehire them for future projects.

We recently hired Scott to photograph a retail space where our store fixtures are showcased in Fort Worth, Texas. From the inception of this project, Scott was communicative, eager to deliver quality work and was very sensitive to timelines. He took the time to research our company but also the brand we commissioned him to photograph. We hire photographers all over the country and would easily consider seeking out Scott as our primary photographer in the Dallas-Fort Worth region.

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.
