"Deciding on your photographer can be a daunting task and also the most crucial decision (and investment) you make during your planning process. We had about a year to plan our wedding and we had the pleasure with working with Eugene for about six (6) months up to the big day. We used him for our 1) engagement photos (seen on our save the date), 2) my boudoir photos 3) our Laotian traditional ceremony and American ceremony and reception 4) and holiday photos (our wedding thank you card). The first thing you need to get out of your consultation is CHEMISTRY! When we met Eugene and his wife, Andrea, we were very comfortable with moving forward. It wasn’t until our engagement photo shoot that we noticed what sets them apart. We were extremely nervous and stiff, but Eugene and his wife gave us guidance, direction, and made it completely fun! As a newly engaged couple, it was refreshing to be in the company of another couple that was just being themselves (loving and patient with each other and with both of us). Eugene has a gift of capturing the chemistry of a couple on camera. Anyone can take photos and videos, but it takes talent and tenacity to evoke those emotions in a candid setting. He has an extensive range – whatever your vision is, he will make sure to deliver. We had a cross section of artistic, portrait, and candid photos. The best part for me (personally) was my traditional Laotian morning ceremony. Eugene and I worked on a journalistic style vision where he captured all the carefully curated details of the ceremony that tells a story about my culture. I’ve seen thousands of Pinterest photos, YouTube videos, but hands down, no one will have moments and the details captured like my Laotian ceremony. Eugene made that possible for me and my family. For me, it was not just photos to admire years from now, but it was about forging history for my family. Whatever your goals are for your wedding, I can assure you, Eugene and his team will make that happen for you! Aside from his grandiose artistic talent, Eugene collaborates so well with our other vendors/coordinators. We wish we could clone him for everything, but if you want a dream team for the wedding, start with this gem here!"

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.
