Photographer Abbie Miller is delightful. I normally don't like having my picture taken, but she put me right at ease and explained to me, step by step what we were doing and why. I highly recommend her.

I was so overwhelmed trying to find a photographer like 2 months before my wedding. I stumbled upon Thumbtack and I am so glad I did because Nico did such an amazing job and was so easy to work with. He did beautiful quality work for us and I love that he gives you the freedom to share your photos and get them printed wherever you want. He doesn't hold your photos hostage, like many other photographers. We ended up having the photos printed through his service and they had very high print quality. Also, he jumped in a snowbank without hesitation to get a perfect shot. Can't really get much better than that!

I had 5 photographers to choose from and selected Sage Arts because of his previous work (found on his website). Anthony is professional and listened to my needs. The photo's turned out well and he charged me what he said he would. This was my first time hiring a professional photographer and next time I will ask more questions.

Melissa did an amazing job at our wedding! She had great ideas for the pictures, and was so professional and friendly. From our first conversation to the end of the wedding, it was absolute pleasure to work with her. I have been in many of my friends' and family's weddings, she far surpassed any of the previous photographers l have worked with. We are so glad we found her!

A few weeks ago our photographer for our music events went missing the day before our show. I came across Sheila through a mutual friend and she absolutely blew me away! She was extremely easy to communicate with with regards to scheduling and what we were looking to get out of the shots. Sheila came through better than I could have ever hoped for with some incredible photos of the night. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a quality photographer that really cares about her craft and the people she is working with. Her shots were able to capture exactly what we were looking for! She will be getting more business from us in the future, that is for sure!

Loved working with these guys! Darren always responded to my emails in a decent amount of time, no matter how ridiculous my question was. Darren showed up and took great pictures of our wedding. The pictures look amazing and not to posed. Love the candid, real feel of the pictures. Between the 2 photographers I felt a bit like a star. They were always there, yet you didn't notice them either. It was perfect! Thank you to both of you for doing such an amazing job!

Words cannot describe Alyson’s work. When my fiancé and I were looking to take our engagement photos, we wanted to find someone who’s photography was natural. We did not want our photos to have filters and exaggerated edits. From the very beginning, when I started talking with Alyson, I could tell that she loved what she does. She is not a photographer who just wants “to get the job done”. She will go an extra mile to genuinely get to know you, and make sure that you are satisfied. Alyson answered all of our questions, and on the day of our session, came prepared with ideas, but at the same time, gave us the freedom to just be ourselves. Alyson made us feel very comfortable. That same day of the photoshoot, Alyson already had some of our photos ready. She gave us a sneak peak that kept us at the edge of our seats. When we reviewed our photos, they were just what we had wished for. After the photoshoot, we kept in communication with Alyson to make a few special requests. Alyson responded to our request in a very pleasing way. Not only is Alyson talented and profesional, she is also very sweet and fun.

Bark River Photography partners John and Jess are probably two of the most professional, skilled and FUN photographers I have worked with in years. Their skill sets complement one another to a T and together, they provide an outstanding experience for their clients and subjects that makes them stand out in a sea of other photographers. Their pricing was incredible for the value they provide in quality, options, talent, and turnaround. Their business and professional photography, modeling, casual and social media profile work is excellent. I had a chance to view their senior picture photography work and art photography too and was so impressed. I would definitely return to Bark River for additional needs. I would HIGHLY recommend getting in touch with them and getting in their schedule. Thanks for bringing out the best in me during the shoot and making the experience so much fun!

Burton is so reliable and pays special attention to detail which I always appreciate. I've used other photographers who just walk in a property and begin shooting pictures. Burton takes his time evaluating the best angle for photos. I also appreciate being able to view the photos before he leaves a property. His photos are great and I receive many compliments from my clients on his work. I highly recommend him!

Prairie was so great to have at our wedding reception! She was very sweet and hardly noticeable (I know that sounds weird but I’ve had photographers in the past that want to drive the event and take over and cause too much stress). We have her flexibility on timing but she did not abuse it at all. She stuck around until she got all of the best shots and did such a great job. We didn’t get a chance to meet before our event but she did exactly what I was looking for. Just a bunch of fun shots of people having fun and dancing the night away. Thanks Prairie!!

Bonnie is a talented photographer and a wonderful person! We have had the privilege of having Bonnie capture some very important moments for us- from our wedding to maternity pictures to family portraits- and we can't say enough about how much we love the images Bonnie has created with us! Bonnie is very flexible and versatile; we have done studio sessions, a shoot in a park, wedding photos (ceremony, portraits, and reception), and even family photos at our home. Bonnie is great with our daughter, too! She has great vision, a wonderful personality, and her pricing is competitive and affordable. I can't say enough about how much we LOVE working with Bonnie!

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.
