Absolutely the BEST photographer I've ever hired. I came in nervous, and left having so much fun. He had a ton of great ideas and brought so much fun to the process. I have so many good shots that I actually have a hard time picking which ones i like most. Some photographers give you a select few shots that are "Good" and watermarked, Doug gave me so many it filled a flash drive and they are ALL KEEPERS. Totally blown away, this guy needs to be on the front page in bold letters as "The Only Choice for excellent shots". I will go out of my way to hire Doug again, and tell everyone I can about him. wow, just , wow.

Lara is one of the Best Photographers in the Business. I had the pleasure of doing a mother/daughter session with Lara, and I cannot rave enough about her ability to capture the true essence of our relationship through her photography. You can tell that she really cares about her work and her craft, and through the entire shoot she put us at such ease. We really did feel like the most important people on the planet, all due in part to Laras ability to connect with us, as I'm sure she does with each and every one of her clients. It was an incredible experience, and the photos are something I will always treasure. Following the photoshoot with my Mom, I immediately hired Lara again to take photos of our home that we were soon to list for sale. We wanted professional photos for our listing, but we also wanted photos personally to capture all the blood sweat and tears we put into making it our unique home. Lara knew exactly what we wanted and needed with minimal direction, and she caught things that we would have passed over. Her attention to detail is immaculate. I attribute Lara's photography to why our home sold so quickly, and I cannot be more thankful for her skills and her inherent eye. If you're still reading this review, you really don't need to search any longer for a photographer. Lara is a class act and you can trust your special moments and memories in her hands with her behind the lens. I can't wait for the next opportunity to hire her.

Dempag Photography (Yale) was beyond what we could have ever asked for. They did it all...photography, videography, photobooth and DJ and for an unheard of price. The price was my initial reason for choosing Dempag so I was a little worried how everything was going to turn out cause you get what your pay for, right? Wrong! Here’s just a few pictures proving that. Better quality than so many photographers who charge over double what Dempag charged us. All the services Dempag provided far exceeded our expectations. We received our pictures extremely quick after our wedding, much sooner than expected. From start to even today (4 months after our wedding), Yale has always been super quick to respond. His clients satisfaction seems to be top priority. Thank you Yale & Dempag, times a million!

Debbie was fantastic! We booked her for our wedding and we're super pleased with the photos we've received. Her attention to small details really sets her aside from other photographers. We don't need 500 pictures of just the two of us; We want to be able to remember the whole day, and she made that possible. She makes ordering/sharing your photos very easy.

Michael is an exceptional photographer. As a professional hair stylist & makeup artist I've worked with many photographers and Michael G. is by far one of my favs in the business. He's very professional and and goes above and beyond. He's always on point and has a perfect vision for whatever the theme/mood of the shoot. He's never one to disappoint.

Alex did our Beach Wedding, and the experience was truly Amazing! His attention to detail and being able to capture every aspect was again Amazing! We have worked with a few photographers before but none of them matched Alex and his "Eye" for capturing the perfect moment with every shot! Definitely using him for our Vow Renewal at our 10 Year Anniversary.

One stop shopping was never better! We hired Jim Landers for our annual sales meeting in San Antonio. With 1300 people attending and several events going on that week, he was able to provide all the photographers we needed and even accommodated last minute requests for additional services. His prices are fair and his services/quality are top notch. I highly recommend using Jim and his wonderful staff. Thanks! --The CareFusion team

I adored working with Jodi! I hired her for my sister's wedding. She also did my sister's and my engagement photo shoots, as well as my sister's bridal portraits. She has an eye for detail and composition; her photos are stunning and the finished product looks like it belongs in a bridal magazine. She is a great value -- priced well below other photographers whose work does not measure up to hers. I will absolutely hire her for my wedding when we pick a date. In addition to her photography skills, she is professional, sweet, cheerful, and personable. Thank you, Jodi!

I've had several "professional" pictures done before and they left much to be desired - both the finished product and the photographers themselves. Wasn't sure what to expect this time around, but let me tell you these guys met end exceded my expectations. They listened to what I wanted and at the same time gave me their view. What I ended up with was perfection! They captured the best moments of my wedding and did some tasteful retouching while still keeping the essence of the subject they were photographing. I don't mind paying for quality, but even price-wise they are on point! Their pricing was phenomenal! We will be using them for all our future photography needs.

Mike is a well rounded and consummate professional. He called me immediately upon my request and he listened closely to our needs. He recapped our conversation in great detail and in writing. And he gave me confirmation that he understood our special circumstances in achieving our goals. We are a commercial landscape company, one of Dallas' & San Antonio's largest. We expect quality and professionalism and Mike was able to deliver on both. Not only did he follow through with what he promised, he provided value and worked independently to deliver. So, if you are looking for a photographer that is more than solely an artist, you've found a good partner in business as well. Donna Matthews Business Development Manager

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.
