I'm not sure what the going rate is, and if there is a going rate. Just bear in mind that as with any other skill-based service, the less you pay, the lesser quality service or product you will receive. In general, photographers who charge high end pricing, deliver high end products and services. But do your research first. Contact photographers whose work you like, ask for references, and make your decision based on that. If quality doesn't matter to you and you just want cheap, then just check their pricing and go for the cheapest you find.

Depends on what you are looking for. I think We paid about $700 and that is considered cheap! He was there for 4 hours.

My mom used someone very reasonable Moshe Weissman I think he's based in Marine Park but not sure. Let me know if you want me to get his number.
My family has also used someone Goldring who was fantastic but a bit more $

Prices probably depend on hours or packages.

What did the $700 include? I was thinking $1500-$2000. It would be great if I could find someone good for that price.

I made a bar mitzvah recently

I followed different photographers on Instagram to get a feel for their work

I joined Instagram specifically for this purpose

Price ranged from $600 to $1600 give or take

He took portraits before the simcha- a lot from the bar mitzvah boy and then with his siblings... then he did table pictures and the boy reading the pshetel etc... some take him just for an hour before the simcha starts. It’s cheaper but I don’t want to miss out on memories throughout the actual simcha.

I'm a family photographer.

Do not hire a photographer off instagram. It's a good idea to check out their pages but before you hire them ask to see a few full galleries. Photographers will only post 1-3 images per session and obviously they pick out the best and/or most interesting shots of the whole night.
A lot of people I know were really disappointed with their choice after picking a photographer only based on their ig page.

I don't do events. It's a different niche.

I got names of photographers from friends. So wasn't random people. Then checked out their social media pages.

I picked someone because I loved the work I saw on Instagram, but I also had personal recommendations. And was very happy with my experience.
