Winstead Barnes is amazing and I HIGHLY recommend him / his company! We hired him to do on-site hair styling (updos) for my daughter's Sweet 16 party, and ended up also hiring him for our event photography needs as well! He was extremely kind, professional, flexible, handled our needs with immaculate precision, and his hairstyling exceeded our expectations by much! We simply showed him the hairstyles we wanted and he was able to make our hair look gorgeous! Thank you for EVERYTHING, Winstead! We will stay in touch and contact you for our future needs as well!

Joshua is one of the best photographers I've ever met. From the beginning of my search for a photographer, Joshua's work and professionalism stood out among the others. While I needed headshots, I also wanted something different, something other than the generic canned ones we've all grown accustomed to seeing. I wanted something casual and spontaneous but certainly not a selfie. As soon as I saw Joshua's portfolio, I knew he was the right one for me. This conviction was confirmed even before I met him in person. Joshua was forthright and proactive in laying out the logistics of what to expect in advance of our appointment. The day of the shoot, he arrived ahead of schedule and allowed enough time to talk with me about his style, his work, and listen to what I wanted and expected. Once the camera started rolling, he made me feel comfortable and at ease and gave me step by step directions of where he wanted me, and what he wanted me to do. I didn't feel like I was posing but stood and acted like I normally do. This gives a much more natural, effective, and stand-out photograph, and I am very pleased with the results. Joshua is friendly, personable, highly skilled at his trade, and very conscientious. He's a consummate professional and has very reasonable rates. I highly recommend Joshua and encourage you to take the time to familiarize yourself with his work. Next time you need a photographer, you now know who to call.

Working with DIM Productions was phenomenal. Coordinating beforehand was simple and straightforward, and during our event they were very accommodating and flexible to our specific requests and needs. They provided our pictures and video quickly after the event, and all the pictures turned out great. We are proudly sharing with friends and family. They also had video at our event, for which they provided an edited cut that captured everything that happened during our day. They even enhanced it in a few ways that we didn't see coming, and so we were appreciative of that. Overall, we had a tremendous experience and recommend DIM Productions to anyone and everyone. Very, very pleased!

Shelia and Tony were amazing, they kept in constant contact with me from the day we contacted them but they were so helpful during my ceremony and were personable to not just me but all of my guests. They took amazing photos and are so reasonably priced! I couldn't have asked for more friendly or professional photographers!

One of the best Photographers the DMV has to offer! We actually came across Jamaal while he was covering my Soror's Wedding in Baltimore this past year! We had been looking for a photographer for the longest time and we were farmiliar with is work, but watching him while he worked is what sealed the deal for us. He floated around the room effortlessly leaving so many smiling faces in his wake, including ours. We didn't even need to see the final photographs, we were already sold(The Photographs were pretty darn awesome too!). We immediately reached out to Jamaal to schedule our engagement shoot and he didn't disappoint! My partner and I were brought to tears by the images. His turnaround is unmatched! (1-2 days). If you're on the fence about booking Jamaal, consider this the push that gets you over the fence. Book him. Now! You will not regret it, we didn't! Not one bit!

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.

He came to my house to do some portrait-type photography. I appreciated that Joe was relaxed and friendly and didn't seem rushed. I got the photos back from him very quickly. He was helpful in suggesting good backgrounds as well. I was very pleased with the end result. I think he'd make a great family photographer also.

Julie did a in-home newborn/family photo session for us and she made it so enjoyable! She is great with guiding you what to do through each photo and she’s not afraid to tell you where to move, or what to look at. Previous photographers weren’t as assertive and made it very difficult for us to know what to do. Our pictures turned out amazing! If you use her you won’t be disappointed!

Studio Pri is amazing! We hired Studio Pri off of Thumbtack and have absolutely no regrets in our decision since there are so many photographers out here! We also used them for our engagement photos which turned out beautifully! Priscilla and her team are easy going and very personal. They make you feel comfortable taking photos since most of us aren't used to it! Priscilla was very responsive to emails and got back to me within 1 day. They had our wedding photos and engagement photos ready for us within weeks! We are amazed at how good we looked in them and would definitely used their services again. Thanks so much for capturing all the amazing moments at our wedding :D

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.

Melodie was extremely personable. She was very responsive and made our group feel comfortable during the whole process. I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking any type of picture. I have never used Thumbtack or this photographer's services before but I was and am pleasantly surprised with the outcome and very happy with my choice. She delivered the end product as promised and ahead of schedule even though she had several bookings that same day. I would definitely consider her for all future events. I feel like I have found the best and unwilling to settle for less!---J.Campbell

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!

Dennis is an excellent photographer. He made me feel very comfortable. His equipment and setup are highly professional. He took many shots and let me review them until I found several that I was perfectly happy with. The fees are very moderate and the delivery is very fast.

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.

    Sorry that I have to put this under Wedding photography. But this is actually for an Indian engagement party which will be organized like a reception. Banquet style, 70-80 people in attendance. We were hoping to have a photographer who can bring along another person to do amateur videography. They don't have to be professional, they can be a spouse or a friend of the photographer. We can provide the video camera also, just need someone to go around shooting videos so our family can be camera-free. My budget is $300-$500. Let me know if this is something you are interested in.
