Marian and Mike Linett were and amazing couple to meet and were very professional when it comes to there photography business. There prices were very affordable even on a budget and when you visit them to discuss what you want for your photos in there home they make you feel very welcomed. Marian was the one who was our photographer. She was so nice, funny and very outgoing and her photos for me and my bride came out amazing. She knows what places to take the pictures at the Founders Inn to make the wedding experiance amazing. She even showed up a little early to help out my bride when she was getting ready. I would deffinetly recommend Marian and Mike Linett to be your photographer for your wedding. A Deffinet Five Star with out a doubt..Thank you Marian and Mike Linett You guys are the best!!

I was VERY lucky to find MFS Photography when I did an online inquiry of photographers in the Hampton, VA area. I submitted a price quote for some digital photographs (several group and some candid shots) to be taken at our family reunion during the 4th of July weekend. MFS Photography had the most reasonable rates so I accepted the quote. He contacted me before the event and was very professional and personable. He went out to the site (we had reserved an event room at a Hampton Inn) before the event to check out the environment. He called me to let me know that the room as it was set up would not be big enough to take group shots for the total number of people we were expecting and recommended an exterior location for the (everyone included) shots. On the day of the event he arrived early. What surprised me the most was that he pitched in and helped us transport things from our cars to the event room. So he not only photographed us, but he helped us with some of our busy work. That was so unexpected, welcomed and highly appreciated. He stayed with us longer than the couple of hours that he had promised. The next day, in spite of the fact that he was doing a wedding, he delivered the digital photos as promised. Our family enjoyed having Michael with us on the first day of our event. I wish I had found him earlier and been able to engage him for all three days. I highly recommend him and do plan to use him for our future reunions if he is available. A VERY satisfied customer, Vivian Nwankpah

We had a wonderful experience with these amazing photographers. From the time we began getting into contact until well after our photo session, Jamison Media LLC went above and beyond to ensure that we were pleased with the outcome. With a newborn and toddler in tow, it was not the easiest of feats, but everything went smoothly and we have received so many compliments on our Christmas portraits from friends, family and even strangers. I would recommend Jamison Media LLC to anyone and everyone! You will NOT regret booking them for any event!

Everyone should hire mrs viki as an event photographer. I hired her to capture my 21st birthday at a hotel. She was extremely patient and understanding when I arrived late to the venue. I had a small meltdown that resulted in a great turnaround because of her fun personality and genuineness. I booked her from 8:30 to 10:30pm and we had a blast. She was well prepared by bringing a variety of backdrops and using different materials. She has many great ideas and is an excellent professional to highlight your event. Once the photos arrive I will be uploading them here. I appreciate you !!

Love her!! She's captured my family from engagement, our (HUGE) wedding, my maternity session, my daughters newborn session, her 1 year smash cake session and then our family session! Brandi captures every priceless moment, candid, posed, you name it, and has the most bubbly, fun personality, I couldn't ask for more in a photographer and will use her for years to come! I'll never forget when she took care of us on our wedding day, 11 HOURS and she was 8 MONTHS pregnant! Her dedication to her work and absolute talent is unparalleled! If you're looking for a photographer that gets a 'natural' smile, she'll stand on her head to get your kids giggling, works on the adults, too!

Scott is an awesome photographer! He was able to fully capture our son's 1st birthday party! His warm and friendly disposition helped to make our guests feel comfortable while still managing to capture every precious moment! Such precious memories...we had a few photographers to choose from and we are so thankful that we decided to go with Scott! And the turnaround for our photos was very fast! If you are considering Scott as your photographer, make no hesitation! He is the right person for the job!

Working with Daissy from Day 1 was truly a wonderful and pleasant experience. Everyone loved her energy and professionalism. It felt as though I was working with family all along. Truly blessed with the decision we made for Daissy to be our wedding photographer. She is so knowledgable and skilled at what she does. Couldn't have asked for any better. Thank you from the Mosleys!

Jim and I shot TFP and he has by far been the most professional photographer I have ever worked with. Him and his assistant made sure I was comfortable and had everything I needed. He took his time with every shot perfecting the lighting and she assisted with adjusting anything out of place. They are a wonderful team! I would recommend him to everyone.

As a family, Denneco has been “the” photographer for our family. He has taken pictures of our play ministry as well. He does not just take pictures, he captures moments that can be relived once you see them again. Photography is not a job for him; it is a “moving ministry”. He also locates places that will flow with the memory that you are trying to capture.

We chose These Photographers for our engagement and wedding pictures. We were so happy with the pictures and were so pleased with our pictures. We look forward to the wedding. Every time I've had a question (and believe me, I've had a lot of questions) I always get quick responses and no one has ever been rude. I'd highly recommend them. Love them!

The attention to care and detail Jose took for for my event was spot on!! His sincerity, skill and professionalism from start of the contract through completion took weight off my shoulders as I knew my photography needs were being handled. I would no doubt book his services again.

Cecelia is an amazing photographer, and would highly recommend her to anyone. We wanted to get some family photos done, and couldn't have been happier with the results. She recommended the setting, and the photos came out beautifully. She was patient throughout the shoot (as we had a pre-schooler with us), and everything went smoothly. We will definitely hire Cecelia again!

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.
