Pricing was very reasonable! Was very patient as we decided on a photographer and worked well with a group of 10 people for the sitting including 4 children under the age of 5. Preview of the first ten photos has been great. Looking forward to seeing the rest!

Kris works very professionally with a heart of patience and thoughtfulness. She brought her own assistant as the second photographer and extend the working hours when our reception went a little bit longer than expected. She worked on editing the photos as well and I ended up getting hundreds of beautiful photos.

I couldn't have asked for a better photographer. My husband and I loved having him. I know my family can get a little crazy and loud and hr did a wonderful job dealing with them all. He was also great with helping me hide before our first look. He did everything I asked and made sure I was happy with his work throughout the night. I wI'll definitely be recommending him in the future!

Heather was absolutely perfect from the day I met her at the Wausau Bridal Show. She is super fun and easy to work with. She did our engagement session and our wedding and I wouldn't have had any other photographer. She is amazing at what she does and I am thankful she captured one of the most important times/days in my life. I am grateful for Heather. . .choosing Absolute Bliss Photography for your special day would just simply make sense. :) Thanks Heather again for being the best!

We haven't received the digital photos, yet, as the wedding was just last week, Oct. 7, 2017; however, I didn't want to wait for them before submitting a review of our experience using James R Byrd. I can always add to this review and share some of his pictures at a later date. Obviously, I don't have any pictures to share regarding the quality of his work, but there are other reviewers on this site who have submitted lovely examples of his work. What I do want to share with other potential clients is that I chose James over several other bidders because of the wonderful reviews he already had and because I was particularly interested in his talent for taking pictures in a natural setting. Our daughter's wedding was an outdoor affair, a backyard wedding on their property next to a pond! Taking outdoor pics requires a lot of extra patience and unique camera skill due to the unpredictability of the weather and the uncontrolled light availability, which greatly affect a photographer's ability to capture the best shots. Since James was clearly skilled in how to use his equipment and his experience to adapt to natural settings, I felt that he was a good choice for us. James also was very easy to reach - whether it was through this website, email, or even on his cell phone! He was immediately responsive to our initial questions and concerns, and I will admit that another perk was that his fee fit well within our limited budget. His fee included 8 hours of his time, compared to other photographers who charged extra after the first 4 hours. While his current services do not include some specific amenities often available from other professional photograhy companies (various packages that include actual prints, canvas mounted pictures, or pre-made wedding photo albums from which to choose), we felt that what he does provide fit our needs the best. In this more modern world of higher-tech, we really were more interested in having digital copies of the entire wedding day, along with a selection of digital copies that he "gives a professional touch up" to provide us with plenty of choices for us to use to create our own albums and prints. This allows the photographer to offer a lower fee option to the client who has a limited budget. During our search, we noticed that other photographer's who did offer certain "basic" packages that included just the digital disk copies, which also included the extra collection of the photographer's choice of special touched up photos, like James's, were still higher in their prices because they doubled their fees after 4 hours. The fact that James was willing to be contracted for the entire 8 hours without raising his fee was a PLUS for us! Additionally, James uses preliminary time to "scope out" the scene in order to better plan his picture schedule, which may change depending upon the options available in a "back yard" setting. My daughter's wedding day started off with rain - it had rained for two days prior and didn't stop until about a couple hours before the ceremony. That caused James to have to be creative about many of the pre-wedding pics. Then, to everyone's delight, the gray clouds disappeared and the warm golden sun (who had been invited to the wedding) shone down upon us in full glory, allowing the natural beauty of the early autumn colors to pop and the serene pond to sparkle! Of course. While this brought smiles to everyone's faces, it did mean that James had to suddenly work with the many reflections of the sun's glare! Still, he quickly improvised and moved us around a bit. I can't wait to see the pictures that James took, as he really had to be so very creative and flexible with the elements! Because I had already seen examples of his work online, I feel optimistic that he was able to capture some good pictures within the changing natural scene. I should also add that James is a very friendly young man who is sensitive to the various goings on of the wedding festivities and is able to adjust his timing for various pictures appropriately. We wanted him to feel very comfortable as we would want any guest to feel, and we made sure that he took some breaks and had time to make himself a plate of food from the buffet, etc. Still, he was mainly focused upon using his time to grab the best pictures that were possible in the craziness of the venue - people all over the yard, children under-foot, some people visiting at the tables set up under various tents, the night-time dancing, etc. I think that anyone who is doing a DIY wedding, especially an outdoor one and/or one within a controlled budget, ought to consider James R Byrd as their photographer bevause he is very flexible, considerate, easy to work with, and very focused upon his craft. I promise to revisit my review and upload some pictures! Can't wait!! Sincerely, Jane Trotter

Ann and her second photographer (husband Lee) are an absolute dynamic duo! They have an uncompromised ability to connect with people on a very real level. They genuinely care for the subjects of their photos and it shows through in the final product. I have seen Ann work on various types of shoots - weddings, baby bump, family portraits...and she has personally shot my engagement photos and multiple editorial portrait sessions. I am never disappointed in the experience and always end up with amazing photographs! If you want an unforgettable experience with your photographer - Ann Ilagan is absolutely that person. You'll be left with stunning shots and probably a new friend :)

    In all the photography I have ever seen, Jen's work is by far the most brilliant, elegant, loveliest, intricate piece of art I have ever seen a photographer do. I feel like Im there when she takes her photos. It feels so vivid. She is very patient, kind, hard-working and definitely original. My husband and I had our photos taken by her and everything I had in mind as far as the pictures go, Jen blew me away with her ideas. Not much people can blow me away like that. There's nothing I can say for her to improve because of the impact her photos has on me. I hope more people can experience her art and somehow get touched by it in someway. Her art work is moving.

    Bobbi has amazing attention to detail and the ability to make you feel like the camera isn't even there! Her work is amazing and we will cherish this forever!

    She was absolutely amazing! She was so patient with my children and didn't try and rush through the session. Her two hour sessions are great and I was able to get all the poses I wanted. I also received lots and lots of images. Other photographers that I've been to in the past rush through the session and I don't get the photos I want plus I only receive about 20 of them. I would recommend Shawna to everyone! For $80 you're getting a great deal with amazing photos! You will not be disappointed.

Our photographic style reflects our clients' needs and interests and also our education and personal inspiration. We focus on both traditional and modern photographic techniques, which are rooted in our 35mm film beginnings and our understanding of digital imagery and design.

At the end of the day, your photographs will be able to retell your story for years to come. Along with our love for documenting people's stories is our love for the Lord Jesus Christ. We are truly blessed by all those we meet, and our prayers are that the photographs we take will be a reminder of your love for one another.

    About

    I love photographing nature, and all things outdoors. Do you have a place in central Wisconsin that you frequent, or a view or a possession that has special meaning to you (even including single plantings in your own backyard, pets, boats, vehicles, barns, etc.) that you would like to be photographed? Are you wishing you had photographs of something that is meaningful to you, but that have also been made to complement the color scheme in one of your rooms? Do you want to enjoy an image in the form of a picture, or other photo gift to send to someone else? For a very reasonable price, I will photograph it for/with you to your complete satisfaction (There is no "sitting fee;" therefore, if you decide that you do not want any images, you have not spent any money).

    About

    We have been photographing since 1994. We do weddings, seniors, engagements, and family. We love to do new and different posing and lighting for our clients.

    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.
