Looking for a photo booth rental? Stop right here and select Dixieland Photography and Photo Booth Rental. I used them for my recent wedding and my guests had such a great time and I have a wonderful keepsake to have to enjoy the great memories. They were easy to work with. Showed up plenty early to set up and were responsive to any suggestions I wanted. Everyone enjoyed working with them.

      I met Amanda in 2012 when she took pictures of my youngest daughter for her Junior Prom and she has photographed my daughter several more times since then. I have three granddaughters and she has taken their photos as well and the girls love Mrs. Amanda. I consider Amanda a friend as well as our family photographer. She is awesome!!!!

        Ralph met us at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens for a family portrait session. He took a variety of pictures, poses, and scenes and his suggestions were unique, creative, and turned out wonderfully! The special creative touches he added to the photographs made them even more beautiful. We highly recommend Ralph for any of your photography needs and will surely use him again in the future!

        Kristy has been our family photographer for over 8 years and I couldn't be more pleased. My kids and grandkids love her. She has a way of putting people at ease. My favorite thing about her photography, and I don't know how she does this, but she really brings out each ones beauty and personality. Also, she goes to great lengths to make her customers happy.

            Andrew did a fantastic job of photographing the Life Time Fitness outdoor cycle ride. In addition to getting some great group shots, he captured some un-posed individual pics of folks that really conveyed the camaraderie of the ride. I will absolutely hire him again when needed.

            Shamar (Picture Perfect) is a trustworthy, dependable photographer who listened to what I needed & delivered exceptional quality. He really helped us relax into the session & was able to put us at ease, producing some wonderful photos which are worth every penny. Shamar has been there to capture all of our major life events so far from our wedding to the first year of our children's lives & family photo shoots. It is fantastic to be able to return to Shamar each time & this is only possible due to his skill & ability to adapt to different situations from controlling a wedding crowd to his patients with children. Each time he has provided us with what we wanted. We would thoroughly recommend Shamar’s (Picture Perfect) services. He provides a truly personalised experience.

              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.
