I have to be honest, when i first got into Thumbtack I didn't know what to expect. But then, Mr. Bader responded to my post and sent me his information. I was so impressed with his work.From then, I know I wanted him to be the photographer for my daughter's baptism. He was great, on-time, friendly, professional, very hands-on with my family. He had suggestions on how they should pose, where to pose, and he had initiative to take picture of everyone who attended the baptism. This is exactly, what I wanted for this special event. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a photographer. He is great!!!

Stacey was amazing from the start of the inquiry to the scheduling. Very professional and patient!!! It was so nice to welcome her into our home and we all felt at ease working with her. We had an unpredictable 4 month old who was in and out of happiness and she was right there with us cheering him on and ever so patient and creative for the perfect shot! She will be our family photographer for years to come.

Meredith did an incredible job! She works very well with babies; very patient and gentle. She was very professional and took her time. She did not appear fixated on the time like most photographers can be. And, most importantly, the pictures turned out fantastic!! Such a great service for the price.... Will definitely be contacting her in the future. :)

I had a great experience working with Adrian. My multi purpose project included headshots for my work / professional profile, and more casual headshots / profile pictures for social media and sharing with family. All photos taken in one session at an outdoor location as I did not want studio photos. Adrian recommended a great location and took several photos in various spots. The end result covered all areas on how I plan to use the photos, including a few cool extra shots. I am very happy with the results and would hire him again for my next photography needs. Thank you!

We initially booked Harrison to take our engagement photos over 10 years ago. He then shot our wedding, and we loved our photos so much we hired him to shoot my parents' wedding anniversary dinner. We live on the east coast, but each year when we come to visit family, we have hired Harrison to do a photo shoot. He has become our family photographer. Harrison's photos of our family through the years are hanging all over our homcome, and truly everyone who visits our home for the first time compliments our portraits.

I have worked in the art business with Florine for many years. Her skills as a curator truly amaze me – her eye for art and her ability to work so well with other artists. For over thirty years I have seen the outstanding work produced by Florine, she is a consummate photographer and artist. From commercial work, family photos, animals, children, fine art and other specialty work – you will not find a better photographer anywhere. Frank T.

Felicia made my wedding day complete with all her help and patience as I had a large bridal party. She made sure to capture the group and family shots that I wanted and as it was happening probably would have forgotten if it weren’t for her and her organization. I will be recommending her to friends and family to capture their special moments as well. Truly a pleasure to work with!!

We had nothing but a fantastic experience with Arian! We were looking for someone to capture memories of our best friend and her dogs (one is much older and not sure how long she will be around) for her birthday. She had never had a professional photo shoot. Arian not only got back to me within and hour of my initial quest for a photographer, but he was right on time to the shoot! He made us and our friends feel comfortable, like a family member or friend. I will definitely be referring Arian again and thank him for his professionalism and reliability. Oh, and the photos came out amazing!!

Justin and Chris took some family portraits for me the day after Thanksgiving. They were prompt, professional and so friendly. When my family wanted to change locations during the photo shoot, Justin and Chris didn't bat an eye and were very flexible and accommodating. The photos turned out beautifully!

    Best photographer I've ever worked with. My infant and I did our nursing milk bath shoot with Asia. They turned out absolutely magnificent. We'll continue to go to her through the years for all our pictures; dogs, children, family Ect.♡

    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.
