I had seen Bree’s work on Facebook when a longtime friend had some pictures done for her boyfriend. My friend looked beautiful, and I wondered if my hubby would be interested in me taking any pics as a present for his big 4-0. I showed him Bree’s photos and he was all in. We looked at other photographers and their work, and we agreed Bree’s work was definitely the right style for us. I didn’t need to look like an art piece, heck, if I turned out half as gorgeous as my friend, it would all be okay by me! So I picked up the phone on a Saturday afternoon and talked to Bree. Working with Bree was easy. In one phone call I was set up for a session with so many choices I thought my head would spin. While I had the option of choosing an outfit from her extensive collection with lots of size range, I ended up using an outfit from home with one small missing piece. I could not find shoes I liked, and here was Bree to the rescue with not only one, but 3 pairs of shoes to choose the right pair! My makeup made me look at least 10 years younger, my hair was beautiful, and the Mimosas divine! Bree is really good at getting to know you in a short period of time so you are comfortable and opens up her home studio in an absolutely welcoming way. She’s good at her job, and has great passion for showing her subject in a way that is visually striking, and yet very true to the personality of the person on the other end of the camera. I was apprehensive, being in the midst of a weight loss journey, and not being as confident at photographing well, and Bree put me at ease. The only complaint I had was that I smiled so much I should have brought Vaseline for my teeth like a supermodel. :-) Then we got the images. I was so beautiful. Shames me to say I forgot I could look so beautiful. I don’t think my husband has skipped looking at the photos at least once a day since we got them back! This was a total game changer for my self confidence and I would do it again in a minute- and then do it again!

Shawn Nichols is a magic photographer. His creative, fun professionalism made this camera-shy chic feel completely at ease. He asks insightful, respectful questions to help him craft the precise experience and images his client wants. His work ethic and skill are phenomenal, and he's devoted to customer satisfaction. I finally have professional portraits I love!

If you're looking for a photographer that is talented, professional and creates a comfortable environment for you to shoot in, hire Zoe! My fiance and I hired Zoe to take our engagement pictures. I have never hired a photographer before and wasn't sure what to expect, but I feel that we were definitely spoiled! Zoe's work is amazing, and even better, she is fun to be around, which makes a huge difference when you are working with a photographer for an entire day. We were both a little nervous initially given that posing in front of a photograph seems forced, but Zoe interacted with us all day as if the three of us were friends, and after the first couple of pictures we were very comfortable. We spent the entire day with Zoe, and even took a break for some lunch together. Zoe is very charismatic and her passion for her work is evident, and the finished products we received reflect that. We will be hiring Zoe down the road for other projects. I would highly recommend you look into hiring her for whatever type of photography you may need.

There are photographers everywhere nowadays. It seems like anyone can go out and buy a fancy camera and study some poses and suddenly, they are a photographer. But what most photographers lack is a true artistic eye for detail, emotion and unique style that is true to their clients. Kyle is not only professional and great to work with, but he brings an experienced and detailed perspective that most other photographers cannot and do not offer. My family hired Kyle to take photos at our latest family reunion, and we were not disappointed. He did an amazing job capturing candid moments that showcased the joy, love and laughter within my family. My grandmother just turned 90 and we never know when our last gathering with her will be. But I feel really grateful knowing that Kyle helped us capture beautiful memories with her that look authentic and true to us. I will definitely be hiring Kyle again for other photography services!

We were thrilled with the pictures from Jason Kim Photography! He was easy to work with, responded quickly and agreed to meet us in our preferred location. He clearly loves his work and his enjoyment was infectious - my son reluctantly agreed to getting senior pictures taken but ended up really enjoying the process and the results. My husband and I are amateur photographers but were disappointed with our own results when trying to photograph our son, so we're so glad we decided to work with Jason. We never would have able to get such amazing results; we can take good pictures but nothing like what Jason was able to produce. And I felt like the pictures we received were better than a lot of my friends who spent much more. He's a pleasure to work with, gives great results quickly and is a great value. I highly recommend!

Alex was absolutely amazing to work with from day one. He is incredibly responsive, lovely to work with, easy going, prompt, and above all, his quality of work is outstanding. We were absolutely blown away by how lucky we felt to have connected with such an incredible artist and warm, friendly person. Choosing a talented photographer is such an integral part of your wedding day, and we are thrilled with not only the end result (gorgeous photos that captured the essence of our day perfectly), but also the support throughout the entire process. Alex is thoughtful in his preparation and often asked questions we hadn't considered. We will definitely be calling on Alex for any and all future occasions and we can't recommend him more.

Rachel was smiles and sunshine the entire shoot and it was perfect. She is so incredibly dedicated and passionate, and it makes for the most amazing pictures. Natural and rich moments. I've always had self image issues, but Rachel made me feel gorgeous. She is a master in her craft, and shows it through every minute detail. Loved her her work and loved her. Not to mention she works with an amazing stylist by the name of Robert Holzer. You have not seen beautiful makeup until you see what is done by his hands. Between the two of them I felt powerful and beautiful. They were a hilarious duo, and the smile they inspired practically never left my face. 1million out of ten would recommend.

I got in touch with CHANDLER MEDIA AND DESIGN less than 24 hours before my shoot. ALEX was efficient in reaching out to me, offered an amazing quote and showed up on time, even beating me to the location. Then, when it was shoot time, he was quick to establish the best location within the space to shoot, engaging with me and the subjectdof the interview and he and Mykala, the other camera videographer, gave 1000% I will work with him again when I have to shoot in Seattle.

I hired Jennifer for a self-directed shoot (as I was unable to attend to art-direct). She was responsible for coordination with the subject, and it was up to her to make sure everything went smoothly and the photos were exactly what we needed. Jennifer delivered. Thanks!

John is by far one of the best photographers we've worked with—we hire photographers in 12 cities for corporate events we produce. He arrived early, took all the shots on our shot list, and is just a friendly guy. His work is just as great—the composition, color, and style. It's not easy to find a corporate photographer whose work and professionalism are of high-quality. Duffernutter Photography is our top pick for Seattle photography—and it should be yours too!

Andrew Achong is AMAZING! He delivers high level professionalism with a unique creativity I have yet to see others exude. In fact, when we were taking bridal portraits at the White House hotel in Biloxi, several staff members commented on the uniqueness of the shoot. They said that they see photographers in there constantly but all of them take the same shots. Not Andrew. He was laying on the ground, climbing on furniture and ledges, making you laugh (or in my case, helping me not be awkward) all to get the PERFECT shot. He definitely knows how to capture the moment. He loves black and white photos but, of course, is amazing with color as well. He shares a passion for photography that so many photographers have lost. You can tell he has fun doing it and that shows in his work. He is super flexible, efficient and accommodating. So much so that he was able to get my bridal portraits shot, edited, printed and displayed in less than a week before the wedding. Delivering the impossible! He is an exceptional guy and an even more remarkable photographer. He is incredible to work with and you will not be disappointed in his shots. He excels in capturing action shots with impeccable timing. He is super responsive and we always received our pictures from him so quickly! I used him for family portraits (including one baby and a toddler {takes skill}), bridal portraits, rehearsal dinner, and our wedding. I can’t say enough positive things about Andrew. I absolutely, without a doubt, recommend his services to EVERYONE. You will love reliving the moment with his photos.

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.
