Paul did amazing, I've never been very photogenic or liked photos of myself but every single picture he took I loved! He was very helpful and nice and was by far one of the best photographers I've ever seen/ been too! He had some amazing ideas and all the pictures turned out amazing. 5 stars! I would recommend to everybody and I'll defiantly be coming back!

I've hired 20 photographers for event photography in the past 3 months. I've paid anywhere between $700 to $300 for 3 hours of photography. JOHN is absolutely the most professional, talented, and easy to work with person I've yet to work with via Thumbtack. Some have sent me 800+ photos and I can't even upload them or even look at them because they didn't even take the time delete all the bad ones. John did. John made it easy to download the photos and I got them NEXT DAY. Also something others haven't been able to do (not required, but awesome!). I can't tell you how wonderful it is to work with someone who thinks of the customer. I've dealt with some attitude for this very easy job - and John is by far one of the best to work with and one of the most affordable. Thanks for the memories, John! (p.s. I swear I don't know him personally...I'm just impressed!)

Anna Munoz is an extraordinary photographer! She immediately puts you at ease and works to provide you with the sort of shots you are looking to get. Her superior skills and talents at lighting and shooting are matched by speed in getting you the proofs and final files. It couldn't have been easier or more fun. I recommend her highly!!!

I had an amazing session with Ms. Young! She was so encouraging and enthusiastic during the whole session which gave me the little boost of confidence that I needed to get my headshots done. She was understanding, sweet, and the perfect photographer. I would definitely recommend working with her because she makes you feel absolutely comfortable and was constantly asking me if I was okay with whatever we were doing. I cannot wait to work with her again and if you are someone who doesn't really know how to pose or if you don't know if your expressions are working out well, just ask her because she is such a helpful person with a positive attitude that just radiates! I'd be lying if I said I wasn't happy with the photos because she showed a couple of them to me during the session and I loved them! When people have taken photos of me (just like family or friends) I always thought I looked terrible but Ms. Young, gave me so many positive comments during the whole session which I think was the whole reason why the photos turned out so well! I honestly can't wait until I have to update the photos because Ms. Young is definitely my number one photographer from now one!

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!

We were on a budget and looked at many photographers and found yale. He worked with us on our price and gave us everything he could for what we could afford. He did an amazing job and had a short window as the wedding didn't go according to plan in the way of doing photos but he was patient and helped us make due with the time he had. His photos were amazing and couldn't have asked for a better photographer. He also helped us with DJing the reception and really brought the reception to life and everyone had a blast. We all very much enjoyed the reception. I would recommend him no matter your budget he will do a fantastic job and his work will blow you away as well as having fun with taking the photos.

Jennifer is simply amazing! Her attentiveness, talent and very professional manner is outstanding. She captured all of the perfect moments in beautiful natural shots. We will forever have perfect and most memorable photos of our big day thanks to her talent. I recommend Sweetleaf Photography for any important event. As a teen I studied photography and worked in a professional photo lab where all top notch photographers would send their rolls to be processed and printed so I can certainly distinguish good photography from not so great photography. Sweetleaf Photography is quality photo art!

Stephen was an excellent partner for our meeting. He was flexible during the planning process, which made it easy to work within my company's guidelines. Onsite Stephen was professional, had a great attitude and took care to make sure the end client had what they needed. He returned the images to us very quickly and the photos from our event were great! Stephen did a great job and I would call him again when in the area.

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.

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.

Mr.McDade and his crew were very easy to work with, very pleasant personalities each one. He was able to do photos individual and had a roaming photogher doing radmon photos of the event which could be purchased on site or at a later time. Any thing we asked for he was willing to do and if he did not like a photo, would immediately retake until it met his standard. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

I truly enjoyed working with Mr. Acosta! He scheduled a meeting with me and described in detail how he worked, brought me samples of his work, and took the time to understand what it was that we wanted. A few days prior to the event he contacted me to confirm our appointment and to inform me of some shots he wanted to take. On the day of the event, he showed up early and stayed a bit extra to make sure that he took the shots he knew were important to us. I received the images on the day he had originally committed to. I am very thankful that I selected him to take my daughter's quinceañera pictures. Mr. Acosta, thank you for capturing such special moments from our event through your lens!

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.
