Bree did an exceptional job as a wedding photographer, and we could not have been happier with the overall experience. She is a very talented professional, who really took charge of ensuring everything was captured. She has a lot of her work posted on her website and on her Facebook page, which helped me decide that she would be a great addition to our wedding team. We briefly coordinated over email and phone, and she helped with the coordinator to plan the timeline to ensure there was time for photos. She was very experienced, which helped ensure the plan and execution were done professionally. After the wedding she sent us the photos on a thumb drive, and my wife and I couldn't be happier with the results.

Gregg and his assistant were awesome! I hired Gregg to run a photo booth for my parents' 50th wedding anniversary party, His photo booth was a hit! Everyone loved grouping-up and having their photos taken with the fun green-screen and back-drops. Gregg was very personable and flexible. Guests were able to take home prints and then able to see and order more prints after the event through an on-line link. Gregg is a great photographer and has a knack for arranging groups for excellent photographs. We couldn't have been happier. Several guests asked me for his contact info after the event. I couldn't recommend GAP Photography more highly. We were all very pleased with his professionalism and work.

Didn’t end up choosing this photographer for our wedding however, they’ve been very professional and kind offering help to find other venders and such. I would recommend this photographer to friends and family.

We were looking at photographers for our wedding and after going through dozens of other photographers albums, we came across Alex Levine's and were immediately captivated by the composition of his photos and ability to capture his audience in the perfect moments. He was very responsive and flexible, even when our venue had to be changed at the last moment. His charismatic personality made posing our family for the initial photos both fun, and easy. Upon receiving our downloadable photo album (which was delivered incredibly fast), I couldn't believe the clarity and amazingly captured candid moments from the entire night. I highly recommend Alex Levine, and am very happy to say that he was able to capture the love and energy of our wedding night in a way that completely exceeded my expectations.

I can't get over how wonderful, talented, and patient Jaclynn is! I contacted her in my search for a wedding photographer, and with the first meeting I knew I wouldn't want anyone else photographing my wedding. She offered to give us a engagement shoot while she was in town, and worked very well with our dogs (who are RARELY on a leash and have never been anywhere but home). Each image I received from the shoot was beautiful, and I'm a person who typically hates how I look in pictures. I have repeatedly changed my wedding date (from over 18 months away to 3 months away to now 6 months away) and each time she bent over backwards to ensure she would be available for my wedding date. I cannot emphasize my gratitude to this incredible woman enough. I will continue to use her as my photographer even after my wedding date has passed!

Heather was out photographer at our wedding. We were lucky that she was in town, and willing to work with us on the cost. SO LUCKY. She was amazing! She did everything I ever wanted, and caught a lot of special moments. It is very hard to decide on pictures to frame. I will recommend her to everyone.

Alex was my wedding photographer we were lucky to hear about through a friend of a friend, and we knew as soon as we met him we knew that he was going to be perfect. His relaxed and professional demeanor was exactly what I needed on the big day when I felt perpetually late and unable to make decisions! He was great at delivering direction in a way that was efficient for a crowd and we are so pleased with the shots he thought to capture of our best day ever. His prices were excellent and the resulting body of work is one of our greatest treasures. I'll definitely be hiring Alex again--next for baby photography!

Rob was my wedding photographer and I couldn't have been happier. We created a list of shots/poses so during the busy moments he kept on track ensuring I'd get all the important photos captured. Even with a delay due to a late mother of the bride, he stayed focused and kept on track with groom photos. His ability to capture candid moments created some of my favorite photos. I would recommend him to anyone!

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.

My team and I cannot say enough positives about working with Stan of S2 photography. He reached out quickly with a quote and was responsive and eager to gain additional details around the event. Even on short notice, he came prepared and enthusiastic to shoot our team photos. He took the time to walk the site with me prior to the start of the event, plan out shoot locations, and asked probing questions to gain information about the look we wanted in our images. He was attentive to my athletes and accommodating to their many different requests for small group photos. My senior Cheer Captain wrote of the event: This photographer was very flexible with our cheer team beginning with individual photos while waiting for the last couple of girls to arrive. He was amazing and made sure the lighting was right for every skin tone. Then when it came to viewing 1 single picture just to see his work, I was blown away. He really made each individual their own star. He really brought out the background features in a photo. Overall a great photographer and you will not be disappointed!

The team at Flying Tortuga was exactly what I was looking for in a wedding photographer. They were happy to work with me last minute and at an unbelievable price. They faced many challenges in getting great pictures of the event, but in the end got many that I will treasure for years to come. Thank you!

She was great to work with. Arrived on time and super friendly. However, after 4 hours of wedding photos I only have TWO photos of my husband and I alone where we are both looking at the camera. And we are not even smiling. I have cried so much. Disappointed doesn’t even begin to describe how I feel. I’m crushed. My wedding photos were so expensive and I don’t even have 1 single picture of us alone together smiling at the camera. And she only captured 2 of my top three must have pictures on top of that.

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.
