Hide showed up on time, accommodated a family of 15 and the many variations of photos we requested, and was a professional in every way. I especially appreciated his patience dealing with five children under six! I recommend Hide for anyone looking for a great family photographer!

Great photographer!!! Used Timberland for my sports organization league photos. Timberland was there early to review the site for best options. Works great with the kids. Very professional. Pictures came out great and they were very prompt with any items that needed to be fixed or were missing. Timberland exceeded all of my expectations. Customer service is great too. Looking forward to using them in seasons to come.

Bree was wonderful to work with. She made me and my family feel completely comfortable. She was patient with us when we needed her to be and she was super sweet throughout the whole photo shoot. She was on time with delivering our pictures and they all turned out great. Definitley would recommend her and I will be using her as my photographer for my family portraits as well as any event I might have in the future.

I hosted a rehearsal dinner for my brother in LaQuinta and hired Dan as my photographer. His pictures and candid shots captured the event and evening beautifully! All the shots whether posed or candid were amazing especially given the mountain backdrop. Thanks Dan for capturing such a great night!

Tony did a wonderful job taking photographs of our wedding. We were so pleased with his work, that we often refer him to friends and family. We loved all of the angles and different moments he captured of our special day that we can relive that day over and over.

After using Robby for our first family photo shoot and being blown away at his talent, we now hire him multiple times a year to capture our family, along with video & still shots for my husbands furniture and sculpture business. He has a well trained and artistic eye which shows exceptionally well in his work. A big part in choosing him was that he is a “local” photographer who is born and raised near Joshua Tree, who knows all the right nature spots! You will not be disappointed using him! He’s professional, easy going, funny and an all around great person!

Mark becomes part of the family when photographing. He takes specific care of how he captures his subject's. I felt as though he were part of the family when he photographed my wedding reception, that being said, he was very professional. The pictures he took showed relaxed and trusting people having a wonderful time.

    Alexandra took my senior pictures and I must say they are the best photos of me so far! I requested we take them at the beach, and she captured the lighting and breezy atmosphere beautifully. Alex makes you feel at home, allowing you to easily warm up to the camera and bring out your true personality in the final photos. Not only do her pictures have the professional quality to them, but she also puts a touch of her personal charm to the photos as well. Her photographs glow with an artistic and whimsical beauty that's hard to forget! I definitely recommend Simplicity Photography.

    Michael Masi is the most professional, talented photographer I've worked with. He's been my go to guy for everything from headshots to photographic art work. He's not too expensive especially for the work he produces and is worth every penny!

    Deanna did a most excellent job at photographing my wedding. She arrived early to capture special candid moments of the wedding party getting ready before the ceremony, and knew compositionally how to pose everyone for formal shots. I had no idea what I wanted and pretty much made Deanna do all the work and guess at what I would like, and she did a fabulous job of doing so.

    About

    I'm well-rounded. I started off in music photography which is fast paced and often in environments with bad lighting. This made it easy to transition to other areas. I'm also creative. I'm an artist, so everything I photograph will have an artistic edge to it. I also have an affective system to get to know my clients so that I can provide them with unexpected, unique, awesome art!

    About

    About

    Marisa Leanne is an artistic documentary photographer specializing in creative lifestyle portraits, weddings and events, as well as internationally capturing the work of both domestic and abroad outreach organizations, the people they serve, and the mission behind their work. Based in the heart of the Temecula Valley Wine Country in Southern California, Marisa has been photographing professionally for 10 years, and is currently available for portrait and wedding photography all over the country, and will travel all over the world to visually document mission organizations, and the work they do. With a non-traditional approach and a photojournalistic style, we use natural light and unique perspectives to candidly tell the story of life, emotion and the genuine nature of relationships. "One of the reasons I love photographing people so much is because of the time I get to spend interacting with each person. Taking pictures allows me to see a little glimpse of the inside story that most people who are on the outside don't get to see -- that's my favorite part of being a photographer, that moment when a connection happens between myself and the people I'm photographing." - Marisa Leanne I offer custom pricing. Over the years, I have discovered that when it comes to creating pre-set photo packages, one size does not fit all. Every photography opportunity is unique and can range vastly in the amount of time, equipment and people needed to capture and create a finished product. Pricing is quoted on an individual basis, depending on the details of each event or the desires of each individual or organization, and is customized to fit your specific needs. Here is an idea of where we start. The following are the details of our services: * A full day of wedding photography including two photographers starts at $1600, or it can also be booked by the hour starting at $250 per hour. Discounts may be available depending on date and location of event or type of photography desired. * Portrait photography starts at $160 and can range in price depending on location(s) and number of people. * Pro bono work or work in exchange for travel expenses is reserved for nonprofit organizations/NGOs who work to uplift those who are less fortunate. Please contact me to share your vision, discuss details and get a custom quote.

I use lots of high-end lenses to achieve this, and predominantly shoot outside in natural light.

    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.
