Actually the first response I got for needing a photographer, my family has been bugging me for a picture in my military uniform and I wanted a professional to do it. He set up the appointment, had everything ready to go and with 2 uniform changes and 4 shooting locations in and around his studio, he took 195 photos in 30 minutes. 2 hours later I received the link to all of them so i can select which ones I want touched up, an hour after that I received the 6 photos professionally touched up and even paid for a seventh. Very professional and knows what he is doing, makes the process quick and easy and would definitely recommend to anyone for any shoot in any setting.

We needed photos for the cover and interior of a regional magazine, which is published by the nation's largest networking entity for building and construction professionals. We had an extremely tight time frame for booking the photographer, taking the photos and receiving photo edits. Will Hartman with Desert Rose Photography was able to expedite our request at a very reasonable rate, and had no problem managing our very detailed instructions on the execution of the photo shoot. (Also, none of the publisher's representatives attended the photo shoot - Will executed everything on site based on guidance he received via telephone and email.) He arrived early to the location to scope out the best places for outdoor photography, and also worked hand-in-hand with the photo subjects to stage everyone (~25 people) in a variety of settings and locations. Needless to say, Will went above and beyond to deliver photos that were engaging, energetic, and dynamic. It was a real pleasure to work with him. We plan to use him again if the need arises, and would recommend him to anyone else looking for a professional, creative, capable photographer.

Brad helped us with our outdoor family portraits. He was prompt, responsive, organized, efficient, thorough and polite. Everything went very smoothly. Even when we had questions reviewing/selecting images afterward, he was very quick to answer our questions and make sure we were taken care of. I would certainly recommend Brad for anyone needing portraits taken.

Richard was one of the best photographers my family, friends and I have ever worked with in over 30 years of throwing events, weddings and birthdays. He was professional, on-time, felt the vibe of the event (even dressed the part). He had the proofs ready in a timely fashion. I will plan on using him again. He also gained many referrals from my event alone as he was one of the stars. Thank you again.

Nona is hands down one of the best photographers our family has ever worked with! Very professional and extremely good at what she does. We had to reschedule d/t the bipolar Houston weather and she worked well (and FAST) to get everything done, EVEN had a few pics ready in less than 24hrs!! I only wish we could've gotten the remaining photos a little sooner as a small project I was working on was delayed (and so many were so good!). To be fair, she delivered on her original ETA AND photos were done just before the holidays, so we know she was very busy. I would absolutely recommend her to everyone I know, our pictures have gotten rave reviews from family and friends!

Sheryl was such a cool, considerate, and understanding professional during our family photo shoot. My toddler boys (ages 2 and 3) were not very cooperative, however, she rolled with the punches like a true professional and worked with us until she got some good quality shots. I appreciated her patience and understanding very much.

Jami was a pleasure to work with, and provided us with a great set of photos from our graduate student welcome event. She was very responsive and flexible from the start, working with us to fit our needs. On the day of the event, Jami arrived early and was ready to go. Afterwards, she worked quickly to send us the final product. We are happy to have worked with her, and would recommend her services to all looking for an event photographer!

Amina Touray is by far one of the best photographers that I've ever worked with. She has an amazing eye for detail, a gentle spirit and a playful demeanor that puts everyone on set at ease. As a makeup artist, I've worked with her a little over a year and we've shot created some amazing images together. A few short months ago, I had the privilege to step in front of her camera as the subject. I can truly understand now, how she captures such great images. She gives great direction and makes you feel like a vip. It was a wonderful experience. I can't wait to work with her again! She's GENIUS!!!

Hiring Attis Photography for our wedding was one of the best decisions my wife and I made. We met with so many photographers, but Attis definitely stood apart from the rest. Anita is extremely organized and will get out of you exactly what you're looking for. Chris takes beautiful photos and has great attention to detail. We hired them for both our engagement photos and our wedding photos, and they did an amazing job on both. If I could go back, I would absolutely hire them again. And I definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a wedding photographer.

If I could give 10 stars I would!! I choose to hire Jess based off her style of photography, I gotta say she was better then I expected and the photos came out absolutely gorgeous. I'm passionate about photography myself so it was extremely important to have an amazing photographer. Her interaction with my family was great, everyone loved them! I would highly recommend her to anyone and would most definitely use her services again. Thank you for capturing our special day and proving these photos ❤❤❤

I hired Tony to take pictures for my son's 2nd birthday party. Working with Tony was super easy and he was very professional the entire time. After our initial contact, he reached out the day before to make sure that he had all the party information. His pictures were great to go through and he got some great shots of my son and his friends. The quality of the photos is excellent. He also told me that the pictures would be sent 2 days later and he actually did it! That was very impressive. I have worked with different photographers and when they say one thing, I often don't get my hopes up, but Tony did a great job and in the time frame he said he would. I would recommend him to anyone and now know who I can use in future years.

Verified review

We've had some bad experiences through close friends and family, so we were hesitant to use a professional that we've never worked with before. I scoured yelp and other sites and just couldn't find the style I wanted. With just a couple of days before the event, we decided last minute and couldn't be happier. I am so happy to discover Mukaila, he was fast to respond, worked with my budget and was extremely professional. We wanted someone that can capture those candid and natural poses, so we hired Mukaila for our son's first birthday and he did an amazing job! He was professional, responsive, and delivered the pictures exactly a week after the party. He arrived early and stayed a little bit later to accomodate our extra wishes. I also loved that he was able to capture some close and personal photos of my family, so it was like a two in one event! Everyone was so impressed and complimented that he was able to take the pictures while remaining in the background, it is like having your own paparazzi. Overall, we would highly recommend him and will be using him for future events.

April has been our go to family photographer since our family consisted of just fur babies! Over the last 11 years she has photographed everything from headshots for our websites to family photos and even a multi-generational set of dogs (and captured all 4 looking at the camera at the same time!) She always catches us in our best light, so to speak!

Elizabeth was very easy to work with from hiring thru the photo shoot and was very professional as well. She was kind; loving; calming and such a natural with my newborn granddaughter and captured amazing photographs that we plan to use to create hard bound memory books as well as framed prints. I would highly recommend Elizabeth Dixon Photography for newborn photography.

My newborn and family photography was excellent in every way!!!! She was very accommodating to my baby's needs (who was only few days old at the time), opened her home to us, and was very patient considering I had another 7 years old. she even bought fresh flowers to match our outfits. her attention to detain is amazing, and the passion she has for photography you can easily see by the way she captures flawlessly every sweet family moment making each picture timeless. I couldn't be happier with the pictures we've got and I highly recommend her to anyone who needs a photographer - she is excellent!!!!

I hired Philicia for my baby shower in Dallas and she was wonderful! I am always the person taking photos at family gatherings but for once I just wanted to be IN the photos and not taking them (I'm the star this time). I was a little worried that whoever I hired wouldn't catch all of the important moments like I do but Philicia completely exceeded my expectations. For the first 30 minutes, I wanted to whip out my camera phone to catch the moments but every time I thought of doing it, Philicia was nearby already taking the photo. Every time I looked over, Philicia was smiling behind her camera and capturing the moments that I wouldn't have even caught. She was spectacular and having her at my baby shower was a relief. I'm so happy Philicia was available for my day and she will be the photographer I call for any other family event

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.
Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
