Philip was great! We hired him to photograph my grandmother's 100th birthday party, and he was incredibly responsive and punctual. Should I need a professional photographer in the future, I would absolutely choose to work with Philip again.

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.

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!

LOVE KatieRie Photography! I had such a wonderful experience from beginning to end. We missed newborn pictures with our daughter and Katie helped us build a package that fit our needs (including some family shots as well as milestone pictures for our little one). She has such a great eye and captured some wonderful images that we loved. I was so impressed with her communication and timing in receiving the images. Katie was always quick to respond to any questions I had and sent images in the time frame specified (three weeks!) if not earlier! In working with other photographers I have been frustrated with how long it took to receive the images so this was something I was extremely happy with. Lastly, she had the best pricing around! In looking into photography packages for our daughter I was shocked at how much photographers were charging and some didn't even include printing rights. Katie includes all images with printing rights and her pricing was unbeatable! Overall I had a great experience with Katie and have already passed on her name to several of my friends! I just booked another session with her for our family Christmas picture! She's the best!

Highly professional photographer that I have done business with and worked with. She is highly skilled in her work and makes sure you get some of the best quality I have seen. She is also enjoyable to work with as she makes the session fun but still professional. Have recommended several individuals who have also had similar experiences. Highly recommend her if you have the chance to work with her.

I have had the pleasure of working with David LaHaye as a photographer for our professional providers as they on-board into our organization. It is important to the providers’ practices and to the organization that quality images of new providers are available for publication on our website as well as into various marketing venues. David is well-prepared, prompt and competent with the technology. But more important, he has a way of respectfully putting his subjects at ease, getting the genuine smiles in a professional stance that bring consistently useful images in his submissions to us.

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!

We were so fortunate to have Megan take our family pictures with our newborn. Unlike most studios where newborn sessions are done inside we were able to choose a location at an outdoor garden and incorporate more of our family tradition of walks in the park. Our younger children were 2 and 3 that had a hard time sitting still. This outdoor experience privided them with a better environment to be themselves naturally and Megan was able to really capture their personality in a way I have not seen a professional photographer do before. Having these beautiful candid shots were such a suprise and a joy to look at. Our focus was originally just for our newborn, which every detail such as her hands , hair, and small ears were taken close up, but Megan really captured the essence of our whole family dynamic. She really followed our suggestions and ideas of what we wanted pictures of and was very patient and worked great at doing it our way while following her own style and techniques. Its also wonderful to meet with someone who genuinely loves children and has such a passion for what she does. I would highly recommend Megan for any event. She will truly capture the moment!

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.
