These photographers are amazing. They were professional throughout the entire process, responding quickly to emails and texts, accommodating packages for a wedding that wasn't standard, and delivering the photos well before the 2 week deadline they gave. The quality and quantity of the photos I received exceeded all of my expectations. I will definitely be using Blue Iris Photography again in the future!

Ralph was the photographer at my wedding in 2009. The pictures turned out amazing! There wasn't a bad one in the bunch. I wouldn't hesitate to have Ralph take pictures of any future special occasions. Thank for your awesome work!! We really appreciated it. I also wouldn't hesitate to recommend Ralph to my friends and family members. Thank you again!

Having Stephanie as our wedding photographer was a great experience. Her pictures were very artistic and she captured all the important moments, including those that occurred unexpectedly. She came early and stayed longer than we asked for. She was very professional.

I was in ANC with my two boys and wanted family photos. Dustin was available on short notice and is so patient and understanding working with a rambunctious toddler. I can't wait to do more family photos with him!

Sarah was a delight to work with during our photoshoot. She made us feel comfortable and she was amazing with my daughter. Sarah responded to text messages quickly and had our photos edited and set up her gallery by the next weekend. I would absolutely recommend her for any family photo session especially with young children. Despite the high winds at our location, we came out with beautifully captured moments from our vacation.

Shiloh went above and beyond to work with last-minute events in order to capture the perfect vision. Her talented eye gave us family portraits to cherish forever. I am grateful for her time and energy in conveying the importance of fire life in our family, despite the challenges mother nature gave us.

So far, Kalyn has taken baby pictures and Senior pictures for us. We have already scheduled family pictures with her for December. She is Wonderful and a true professional. We were able to take in-studio pics for babies. She was so patient with our twins. We went off site for Senior pics. She managed to put a giant smile on our graduating senior's face and quickly put him at ease. We highly recommend her for capturing your family's precious moments!

My husband and I are from Florida and decided to fly to Alaska and get married on a glacier! Of course, having a destination wedding means most of your family and friends can’t attend, so we knew we wanted to have this amazing ceremony captured. The plan was to have the intimate event filmed and edited and then surprise or friends and family at a reception back in Florida. Needless to say we were overjoyed with the quality of 2Core Films product! The turnaround time on our video was beyond incredible! This team was able to edit and complete our ceremony video in less than 24 hours. There was not a single other company that would come close to that turnaround time, quality or price point. However, being able to meet our time constraints wasn’t even the best part. The video’s quality was incomparable to other videographers. 2Core Films was able to capture our entire personalities and love without leaving a dry eye in the room. This video is so incredible that I often run into friends of friends and they mentioned how they cried over our video after a wedding guest showed them. The professionalism 2Core Films displayed and their over the top costumer service are the main reasons I recommend this company. I can’t stress enough on what a wonderful job they did and how special they made our day. We are so glad we decided on this company and will be forever grateful for the treasured keepsake we will have for a lifetime!

Sarah did a fantastic job as photographer of our wedding. She was personable, professional, and made everyone feel very comfortable in front of the camera. She did an equally fantastic job with our staged photos as she did with the candid shots. We were extremely happy with our photos. I highly recommend Blueberry Hill Photography!

Luminance Photography no doubt cares about every single one of her shoots. Diane makes sure that everyone has the best experience possible. I know because I loved the time we spend with Diane. Diane isn't just a photographer. She helps with making your pictures a moment you can love forever. She makes sure to help you feel comfortable well-taking photos. Cause we all know it's scary putting yourself out there. She makes sure she captured everything and so much more. I wasn't one bit worried about her abilities. She didn't stop moving and took different angles of pictures. She was professional and easy going, she took control, but wasn't being pushy. She was all that I could have hoped for in a photographer! One of the things I loved is that she gave us the pictures with a week of us taking them! Her Pictures are breathtaking! I have so many of them hung up in our house! I would Highly recommend working with Luminance Photography!

I ended up having a photographer back out of our engagement session so I was very stressed and out of luck. I found Kate and she happily offered to do it. Canceled her plans and we were able to do our fantasy engagement photos. She was very friendly, sweet, good artist eye for areas and posing. She's extremely funny we were laughing our whole session. We ended up asking her do do our wedding as well they came out perfect ! Pretty light and airy look that I asked for. She'll be our family photographer from.now on.

    I am so impressed with my photos from Kassidy! She is such a talented, spirited and creative photographer. I can tell how much she enjoys her work through the time I spent with her for our session. She was so patient with my very active and curious 2.5 year old when we did a maternity shoot. I would highly recommend any one to her! The quality of the photos for the price is unbeatable. After all you can’t put a price on a precious memory!

    About

    I am an Anchorage-based portrait/event/landscape photographer. I am self-taught and have gained most of my photographic experience on travels overseas. While I do love travel and landscape photography, I am also drawn to capturing newborns, children and families or couples with natural portraits in relaxed environments. I would consider my approach more photojournalistic rather than posed and cliche. My reasonable pricing is flexible and solely based on the needs of the client.

      Q & A

      Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

      Do you tip a photographer for family photos?

      Tipping a photographer for family portraits is not standard etiquette. A great way to recognize a family photographer who goes above and beyond is to write them a glowing review. You probably found your photographer by reading online reviews, so paying it forward by letting everyone know how much you appreciate their work is a great gift. Write your review after they have delivered the final edited photos on time and you’ve confirmed that you’re happy with the terrific portraits they took.

      What should you wear for a family photo?

      A family photographer captures your family in a series of professionally edited portraits. You can be goofy, you can be formal, you can be exactly how you want to be. To that end, you can wear what makes you feel comfortable and confident — feeling good translates to looking good in photos. However, top family photographers do have some style suggestions that will make your family photos more visually cohesive:

      • Ask the photographer for color suggestions if you’re doing an outdoor photo shoot. Location and time of day can affect which shades will fade in the sunlight and what will stand out in a good way.
      • Stay away from a mix of stripes or plaids on multiple people — the effect is too busy.
      • Steer clear of tiny patterns, which blend together too much.
      • Avoid wearing matching outfits.
      • Do wear outfits that are complementary in color.
      • Choose color over black-and-white outfits.
      • Do choose a theme, such as pastels, fall colors or summer colors.
      • Opt for tonally similar colors.  
      • Go easy on makeup for outdoor photo shoots.

      How much do photographers charge for family portraits?

      Family portraits are a great way to mark the passage of time, create lifelong keepsakes and have gorgeous-looking photos for your annual holiday card. The national average cost for hiring family photographers ranges from $150 to $200. Pricing can range higher depending on where you live, length of the photo shoot, the number of edited photos you request, and the background and reputation of your family photographer. Before hiring, make sure you understand their fees up front. Ask how many finished images are included in the quoted price and whether you will receive all the photos taken (not just edited photos). Ask whether you’ll be able to download digital photos or if you’ll have to print them or purchase digital copies through the photographer. Here are some average examples of family photographer pricing:

      • $175 for a one-hour studio session in Kansas.
      • $200 for a one-hour studio or outdoor session in Georgia. Includes two outfit changes, access to an online gallery, and about 200 high-resolution, edited digital photo files on a DVD, with permission to print.
      • $400 for a one-hour outdoor session in Southern California. Includes 25-30 fully edited photos accessible online or via CD/DVD.
      • $425 or more for a one-hour outdoor or in-home session in Illinois. Includes more than 50 professionally edited images, online access and print release.
      Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
