This was a truly AWESOME photo shoot. Tina is so energized and enthusiastic about her work as a professional photography it electrifies her studio. Her positive energy and love of her work / professional is intoxicating. Of the many photo shoots I have been in during my life and career, this was the MOST fun, pleasant and enjoyable. Tina gets 5 Stars + from this client! (Photos later, I promise.)

Nik proposed in 3/17 & we didn't want to wait so once we locked in the venue, we began looking for a photographer. Our wedding was considered it an elopement as it was a simple service with 11 in attendance, myself & my groom included, and it was to be roughly 3 hours of shoot time. We wanted to have a natural feel to the photos & be rich in color with no details missed. During the search, I wanted to see portfolios of weddings where the photographer had shot in dimly lit venues. Although we didn't do a traditional reception, we did have all of our guests join us for a dinner where we did a toast & cut cake. We wanted to see work that demonstrated the photographer's ability to photograph without the use of bright lights that create shadows or completely black out the room to get one (or a few) subject(s). Joshua was very accommodating when it came down to deciding between three local artists & I'd asked to view a full wedding since in reality, the online portfolios only showcase their best work. He was incredibly patient with us as we took a few weeks to really nit-pick the photographer's work & make a decision. Everything that we'd asked for he provided. Fast forward to June 10, 2017 - the wedding. Upon arrival, he helped us all get into place & even communicate between the groom & I. He was incredibly patient. Honestly, I barely noticed him once everything got rolling. He got all the shots we wanted & then some! The photos of my husband's expression when I made my way towards him will be cherished forever. Anything in particular we wanted, he did. In the end, he ran a few photos by us to see if they were to our satisfaction. We made a few suggestions regarding saturation & a small blemish that needed editing & when the gallery went up, I couldn't stop looking for days. We happily recommend Joshua Fernandez Photography. The photos selected are two of our favorites from the day <3

Jamaal did a great job of capturing the entire party. He took lots of candid shots and included a wide array of people in the photos. I was thrilled to share the pictures with all my guests today and relive the event through his photography. I would definitely hire Jamaal for my next event! I booked him only two days in advance and he was great with communicated and making it happen on short notice.

We worked with Jeff for our son's 1st birthday party and could not be happier with his work and the resulting photos! Jeff took the time to chat with me before the party to understand what we were looking for, as well as to let us know how he typically approaches events like these. Jeff was very punctual on the day of the party and got right to work. He got so many wonderful shots of the decorations, the guests, and the smash cake - and did so in a very un-intrusive way! The different angles and lighting that he utilized really made the resulting portfolio unique and special. Also of note is that Jeff's pricing is extremely reasonable for the quality of work he does. I would highly recommend Jeff to anyone looking for photography services for these types of events.

I found Joe Halpin's photography webpage, liked what i saw there so called him to see about getting some pro photos for my music business. He was friendly and customer-oriented from the start, asking questions to help me figure out what exactly i was looking for. I went to his home studio, the session was easy and fun - and i LOVE my photos!

We used Metin / Picaboost Photography for my sister's wedding. From the initial contact and throughout the entire, Metin was very responsive. He answered any questions we had right away and even had a phone call with us to talk details before signing a contract. Since we had to push up the wedding, time was crucial and Metin was quick to respond so that was very helpful! We sent Metin a video shot list and he captured everything we asked of him. He arrived early the day of the wedding and was very kind and professional. We only requested raw footage and the footage he sent was great! He cut the footage down so it would not be overwhelming but he still had all of the important parts of the day. We would highly request Metin and Picaboost Photography!

I hired Leslie to do a photo shoot of a company meeting I was hosting in Washington DC. Leslie was great. She was very easy to communicate with in advance - I was coming to an event from out of town and she made it really easy to work with her. She captured great moments and photos turn out really well. She also does a same day delivery of key shots and then had 100s of the event photos edited and ready for me within a week! I recommend Leslie for event photography and will use her if my company is in DC area again.

I can't say enough good things about Rachel. She met with me before the wedding and took time to get know us. She has a wonderful creative eye for settings and a knack for capturing the spirit of the event with her candid photography. Our staged group photos worked smoothly. I received my photos quickly within a few weeks of the wedding. Mostly, Rachel is a smart, intuitive, and sweet person. It was a pleasure to work with her.

I’ve worked with Kari several times (engagement, wedding, and maternity l) and she is truly a pleasure to work with. She takes great care to get to know her clients and make sure she’s capturing THEM and not pushing them into cookie cutter photos. She’s incredibly patient when trying to find just the right shot. She really has a natural eye for photography. Her photos are some of my most valued teeasurws and I look forward to work with her more.

Working with JustInFocus Photography was a good experience from beginning to end. He took my graduation photos for me and they turned out perfect! Even through our weather related scheduling conflicts he worked with me to find a time that worked for both of us and was extremely flexible. I highly recommend using his company and will likely be using him in the future.

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.
