I contacted Mr. Scott to have some updated profile pictures taken. His professionalism is outstanding and his encouragement to get me to just be myself while he was taking the photos, really made me feel at ease. The quality of the photos were outstanding. If you're in need of a professional photographer, I definitely recommend him, hands down.

Dear Melody, We should have written this letter to you years ago. Now where do we begin and how much time do you have? for I/we have so much to say to you. Melody, even though we have known you for years now, to this day you never cease to amaze us with your creative photographic workmanship, and now you have this wonderful website too, Memories by Melody at: http://www.memoriesbymelody.com that we can use every day if we wish, and we do so, very often now. Melody, you have been such a blessing to our family through your imaginative photography and we want everyone to know it. Because of your artistic photography of our family, from our family portraits, to our children’s graduations, their engagements, weddings, our grandchildren’s births in some cases, to our family reunions, and other special events, we now possess earthen treasures in heavenly vessels through your God sent photography that shall preserve our family members images and memories for lifetimes to come, from generation to generation, as we pass it on to our children’s children. Our entire family thanks you Melody for always being so precious, going out of your way for us, even though you live in Charlottesville, Virginia or Earlysville, VA, you have made yourself available just for us on so many occasions. Over the years you have flown to Alaska, Illinois, Texas, Arkansas, and even driven to Tennessee, Ohio, and come to many other locations at our requests, just to take pictures at our family events. What can we say, your photography is so imaginative, no other photographer we’ve used can compare, and we could never pay you enough money for the work you have done for us, no price and compare to the love you've expressed in your work done for us. After reviewing your new website again and again, specifically the section you created just for us of all the pictures of our family you've taken over the years, so that we can view them all in private through our own private pass code, and now we feel we have underpaid you over the years. Therefore, we have enclosed a love offering above and beyond what you have charged us for your sincere services rendered, and we do this just to show our true appreciation for you. Honestly Melody, you have been one of our best investments ever. “Memories by Melody” your inspired photos taken of us and our family in so many well-ordered ways are worth more than all the gold and silver on earth to our family memories. You’ve brought so much joy to each of us, and you do so every time we go back and review your stunning photography, it continually takes our breath away. We are so thankful we flew you, all expenses paid, to every family event possible over the years so that we could end up with your Memories by Melody Treasures of our entire family. Truer words have never been spoken about the memories you have left us in photographs, photo albums, CD’s, emails, and now your new website http://www.memoriesbymelody.com Seriously Melody, you should consider charging much more for your resourceful work; maybe even double your prices. Quality is far better to us than quantity when it comes to our memories. Melody, you only need to apologize for your higher prices once, than someone else having to apologize for their bad quality forever. Melody, you really have no idea how good your resourceful photography really is, but we do, and we tell everyone we can about you and your practical work. Thankfully some of those people have hired your professional services and so you know, we have only heard praises about your lovely work. Your photos are the most memorable pictures we have within all of our photo albums. You need to know we have had many other photographers over the years, and although they did take some nice photos they really could not compare to the inspiring work you did for us. You have a gift Melody Robbins that could only come from God. Thank you for sending us your newest website http://www.memoriesbymelody.com we love it. Now we can go and look at all of the thousands of photos you have taken over the years of our entire family, it is simply amazing! All we have to do is go to your website http://www.memoriesbymelody.com and enter the security code you’ve given our family, so that we can now privately view your vivid photographs of our entire family anytime we want from anywhere in the world, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and we do this a lot. How brilliant……. Your http://www.memoriesbymelody.com website is so AWESOME, just as you are! It’s so nice to view the dozens of other beautiful families you have blessed with your talent. We love all the brides and grooms, where you capture their love for each other forever, their engagements, their weddings, graduations, family reunions, and so much more. We had no idea there were so many attractive people you have taken photos of. We know that timing is everything in photography, and you take the cake with your perfection and love for others, doing everything you can for us, and now others we see on your website, as though you are doing it as unto the Lord. One last thought; Melody, if you ever need a recommendation, just ask us, or better yet, please feel free to use this letter of praise and thanksgiving, for we do consider it was the Lord who sent you to us. Please, give it to anyone you wish to read, especially those who may be interested in a real professional’s work that will last lifetimes for their family memories too. Melody, feel free to put this letter we’ve written to you up on your website and/or on all your posts for others to read. They all need to know who you really are, and about the talent God has given you to capture the precious moments only you of Memories by Melody could do. So bless everyone you wish with our letter, they all need to experience the joy you have brought us through your artwork. We thank you again from the bottom of our hearts for all the love and memories you have captured on film of our entire family for generations to come. Once again, we cannot thank you again for your website: http://www.memoriesbymelody.com containing almost all of the hundreds or perhaps even thousands of photos you've taken of our whole family over the years. If you put this website together you are also a genius in website creation, just as you are in photography. We talked to a friend of ours who does this kind of website creation for a living, he was really impressed. We asked him how much he would charge us at full retail to create a website just like yours, but only for us. We told him, if we wanted all the features you put up for us on your site on our site he would create, he said he would have to charge us up to $5,000.00 or more. And even more money monthly thereafter, if he had to continue to working on our site to improve it, as you keep doing to your own site. So Melody, for us to pay to have this instant treasure chest of pictures put up on the internet, so that our entire family could pull up all our pictures to view together or separately anytime each one of us wants to, from any computer, from almost any place on earth as we travel, it would have cost us an extra $5,000.00 or more. Therefore Melody, we must ask this question, “Surely you do not do all this for everyone you do business with, and if so, how on earth can you afford to do it, that is without charging extra for it? We are willing and very happy to pay you for this extra benefit of doing business with you. So please, just let us know what the price is, and we’ll pay it. May God continue to bless the work of your hands, your family, your photography work for us and many other families as well. With all our love, Anthony, Marie Jones, and because of your patience and instructions, our entire photogenic family.

We loved absolutely every part of our experience. Kley was on time to the shoot, worked so well with our 2 year old, and made the entire hour seem relaxed and fun. He captured our true personalities. To top it off, the turn around time from our shoot to getting our pictures was so little. We were used to waiting several weeks for our photos. We absolutely loved our pictures and cannot say enough about how wonderful our experience was. Our family highly recommends Berkley M. Todd Photography for your next photo experience.

We had such a good experience with Linda and Ran!! They were very quick to communicate once I sent the request through Thumbtack. I was looking for just one photographer at a low price and she was very willing to work with our budget. However, the day of our wedding we had two photographers. All of our pictures turned out great. We have so many pictures of our ceremony and afterwards. We also have a lot of candid pictures which truly captured the joy of the day. In the end, they gave us the pictures in a very reasonable time. I would recommend them to anyone!! Thank you both so much.

My family and I have used Rob Ham Photography for over two years now and are always extremely happy with our photos! Rob's laid back nature makes you feel very comfortable and relaxed during the photo session, and he is excellent with kids. Rob also offers a large variety of print options depending on what you are looking for. We especially love the collage prints that he has created after we chose our favorite photos. I would not hesitate to recommend Rob Ham Photography!

Daniel was a pleasure to work with! He was very eager to hear my ideas and make them come to life--he went above and beyond to get the best pictures for our once-in-a-lifetime day. We moved very efficiently through our photos which was very important to us so we were able to maximize the time with our guests. He made it fun, quick, and painless for our entire wedding party. He was even able to get some smiles out of the guys that despise photos--he was our very own miracle worker! He comes highly recommended in our book! We have not received all of the photos from our wedding yet, but from the sneak peeks, we know we will love them all! Great work by an even greater guy!!

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.
