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.

Matthew is an impressive professional photographer. I needed a head shot for career purposes, and he was able to quickly accommodate my schedule. Matthew put me at ease and was effective at identifying several great photos that met my needs perfectly. He's got a great eye for detail and I look forward to working with him on any future photography needs.

Lee was an amazing photographer for the job! He was punctual, professional, and ready to rock. He shot tons of pictures and had a very quick turnaround to share the best ones. He even shot some video, too, since he had multiple memory cards to fill. We are surely going to use him again in the future! A+++

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!

Marsha did an amazing job. My daughter needed head shot photos for the upcoming Miss Texas USA pageant, and she fit us in immediately. She was extremely professional and personable as well. Most of all, she does beautiful work. I would recommend her services to anyone in need of a professional photographer.

Caitlin is amazing! She was so sweet and worked with my crazy schedule and last minute challenges, I briefly told her what I was looking for and she totally nailed it! I honestly could not be happier! She took so many shots and was so sweet enough to give me plenty of pictures unlike many photographers that will narrow down the number of pictures you get to keep. She also got them to me in just a few days! I've saved her number in my phone and will definitely be calling her again... if you're reading this and considering hiring Caitlin you definitely should!

Kevin shot my daughter's bridal portraits and he was absolutely OUTSTANDING. When selecting someone to shoot bridal shots, I wanted to make sure we selected the perfect photographer to capture this once in a lifetime event. Kevin met those expectations and then some. He was very professional and really displayed his knowledge of capturing the right angle in order to produce the perfect photo. My daughter's wedding photos were stunning!! I would recommend Kevin to anyone who's looking for a great photographer at a great price!!

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.

Matt did an amazing job!! I booked him for a grad photo shoot all last min and I'm so grateful that he was available. He was so flexible with his time, he was able to work with my times and was so helpful in the planning, very easy to communicate with also. He responds very fast to any questions or concerns. The whole time he was so nice and creative with the posing, I had a lot of different ideas of my own and he was open to all ideas. He took many great photos and I was extremely pleased with the finished products!! I would def recommend him! And if I need a photographer in the future I will be considering him again!!

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!

We seriously could not have asked for a better photographer! Randy and his assistant were punctual, friendly and understanding of the pressures of the day and captured everything we wanted to express in our photos and more! Hands down had an incredible eye for the right shot and is a master of his work, a true artist you will not be disappointed with his work. I couldn’t ask for a better photographer! Don’t settle for anyone else Lanaki is the best! Dixon Ohana🤙🏼

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.
