Beyond impressed with Tina's incredible talent and flawless ability behind the lens. She spends careful time and does not make you feel rushed in front of the camera. She goes the extra mile to ensure you are most comfortable at all times. She was also one of the nicest, most friendly, energetic and trustworthy photographers I've worked with! I am thrilled with the final product and her creative touch added to my port.

It was my 14 year old daughter's first big pageant and we had never had hair and make-up services before. I was more nervous than my daughter! I can't believe what a difference "stage" make-up makes and her hair looked like something from a magazine. The best part was their willingness to accommodate the ever changing, unpredictable pageant rehearsal schedule. They kept me calm and made my daughter feel spectacular!

I found Doug on Thumbtack and was pleased to have him photograph my wedding this past October. First, I was so pleased to meet him before hand and see more of his work so I knew what to expect. But more than that, I realized that Doug is an exciting, interesting, and cheerful person which made the experience even better. He has an artistic eye and really made some beautiful memories that made me excited to have him shoot my big day! During the day, Doug captured fantastic moments and was flexible when we wanted him to get a specific person or time. He was over all energetic and cheerful! I had a few friends that are amateur photographers also take pictures for us and Doug took the time to answer some of their photography questions and giving them tips - going above and beyond his call... Finally, my pictures came out beautiful and in a timely manner. I can't thank him enough for capturing our day and producing this precious keepsake!

We were SO thankful to find Monumental Arts and K on such short notice - we had our wedding in a museum in Alexandria and our friend, an amateur photographer, fell through just 2 weeks before our February 21st wedding - I was so scared because the wedding photos are SO important to me, I even still have my parents album and their wedding picture at home! He met with us and we discussed our wedding plans, laid out our timeline, and he showed me the most beautiful wedding albums and enlargements from weddings he photographed before - my fiancé even liked them! We decided right then and there Even though we were just having a shorter wedding, nothing all day, we still went with his more expensive collection (I think it was the Sapphire Collection) because we knew we would be getting an album and wanted two photographers. He showed up on the wedding day and walked us through everything we asked for - even suggesting some outdoor pictures I didn't expect to get because the weather turned out beautiful!! Plus, he stayed an extra 30 minutes after things starting running behind, which was so nice of him. We are so thankful for his work and professionalism! We met with him to discuss the photos we want in our album and to order enlargements, and he made it so easy to do everything. I have two other friends getting married this year in Northern Virginia, and we've definitely recommended K and his team to them!

I have worked with several photographers over the years and Joshua by far is the most impressive. Everything about the whole experience was top notch professional. He was incredibly responsive, flexible, and accommodating working around my schedule. The location he chose was simple, perfect, yet modern - exactly what I wanted to convey with professional headshots. During the shoot, he continued to walk me through several poses, and he took his time with me to calm any nerves. He was patient and fun to work with! Hands down the best photography experience I've had, and I will definitely use his services again!

I've worked with numerous photographers before, but none of them compare to Hassan Malik. He has an eye for taking pictures that focus on the subjects and soften the background. He takes the best angles of the subjects (for me it was my fiancé and myself for our engagement session) to ensure that the subjects look the best. His editing skills are phenomenal. He uses airbrush to remove blemishes off of the subjects' faces, he correctly uses saturation and contrast, he plays with the lighting well especially in outdoor photos, and he knows how to take photos that highlight the subjects and make unforgettable memories. Something else that doesn't speak as much to Hassan's photography and editing skills but I think is so important is how professional Hassan is. Not only does he take his job seriously (arriving on time, with the appropriate equipment, etc.), but he truly wants to take wonderful photographs. He goes out of his way to take the photos, sometimes even positioning himself in awkward places so he gets the perfect photographs. He is fun to work with, very easygoing, and he truly wants to provide his clients with the best photographs. I would highly recommend him to anyone (in fact, I've already recommended him to a few friends who are looking for photographers!). I am so glad we chose Hassan for our engagement session photos - they are amazing and my fiancé and I will cherish them for forever!

D.I.M was very professional with our engagement pictures. I asked them for some last minute items and they were able to handle the requests with zero issues. Our photographer was even able to get a table with two chairs by the harbor set up with the bottle of champagne I asked him to bring. I would highly recommend D.I.M to anyone. Thank you for making my proposal that much easier!! Sincerely, Tony

My experience with Elmo Laing was a powerful trigger of personal memory---from light, to set-up, to processing. By all accounts, he is a meticulous craftsman. Through his eyes and indelible images of my party guests, I am still reliving this momentous occasion ---my 60th birthday celebration. In photograph after photograph, Elmo captured every mood and motion of the affair. He documented the dancing, the band, the striking group portraits, the cake, the room decorum, and of course--ME. His photography has played an important role of constructing memory because the stories leap from their stills. His images are stimulants for remembering---happy lives, families and friends, and what & how we celebrate. I hover over these images! That’s what fantastic photographers do….they show the environment, they show what they saw and they work to compose the best for YOU. That is exactly what Elmo Laing produced for me. Oh, wait a minute, did I mentioned that he is patient, polite, and precise with posing & positioning—a good photographer. Thank you, Elmo for your artistry, storytelling and technical ability.

Joe's work was excellent, and he was a complete professional. Immediately upon meeting him, he instilled a sense of confidence, trust, and ease -- all of which proved to be accurate. I recommend him without reservation to anyone looking for a photographer who has exceptional artistic as well as "people" skills. Additionally, communication remained clear and frequent throughout the process, and he delivered the final product quickly.

Justin and I started a conversation a little over a week ago. I was looking for a photographer who would be able to take us some couples photos for the holiday season. From the very start, Justin was punctual and he continued to be punctual through to the delivery of the photos. Often times when people hire photographers, people complain that photographers lose momentum once they’ve been offered the gig or once they’ve received payment. This is absolutely not the case with Justin. Justin’s punctuality definitely has been a plus point all the way. I also appreciated that Justin works with clients across varying price points. In addition, I must say Justin’s offer was definitely reasonable given that we’re situated in the DMV. Interacting with Justin, one of the first things I let him know was that I just wanted a quick photo shoot that would be a leg up from our usual selfies. Justin understood exactly what I was expecting out of our photo shoot. Justin and I worked out the details over text, and the photo shoot was quick and effortless. Though I didn’t end up calling him myself, I did pass on Justin’s phone number to a few colleagues of mine - he had such a great offer that I had to share with others! On that note, if you need to hop on the phone to talk details, just ask for his phone number. I am absolutely all about Pinterest and all things Pinterest related. I had ideas of poses but when we met up, my mind sort of went blank (I blame the cold!) and Justin had great ideas which resulted in some beautiful photos of the two of us. I also have to praise Justin’s understanding of space, lighting, and photography concept. Justin took a handful of posed and candid photos, which we both appreciated. Not only is Justin talented, but he is easygoing too. And that’s definitely a plus point when hiring a photographer. If you can’t be yourself around your photographer or if the photographer can’t get you to feel relaxed and at east, then you might as well throw in the towel because you won’t get quality photos. Thank you, Justin, we love love love our photos!! PS: Hire Justin. If my photos are any testament, I’m sure you too will be more than satisfied with yours!

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.
