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 hired Will to shoot two large group photos for a corporate training and deliver prints by the next business day and he completed the job seamlessly and professionally. He was easy to get in touch with and very reliable. I coordinated this training in 15 different markets with 15 different photographers, and Will was one of our favorites! I would recommend Will for any photography job in the area!

Brad was fantastic! When he arrived at our location, he quickly scanned the scenery, and within seconds was able to determine the most beautiful spots to shoot. He picked several places based on existing architecture, landscape and foliage. His vision was amazing! A true photographer. I was worried about all the people in the area, but he knew how to set up the shots so it looked like we were the only ones there. He was also able to direct us into poses that may have felt unnatural, but translate wonderfully to the finished photo. The results were beautiful! I'm always concerned about color and lighting - I see so many photographers get it wrong, but our photos are truly professional quality. If you want someone who strikes a nice balance between efficiency, artistry, and reasonable pricing (and who doesn't?) then I highly recommend Brad!

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!

My family and I were vacationing in Newport from out of state and chose Danielle to capture our beach fun. I had never been to the area before and didn't know any photographers much less any good spots that would work well for family photographs. After exchanging some emails a few weeks before our arrival, we set a date and location for our photos. Danielle was prompt, professional, and chose an excellent location for the photos. Our session was no easy task because I have two small children, ages 5 and 2. Combine that with water and sand and you get a recipe for disaster, but Danielle was able to somehow capture great photographs of my family. I would definitely use her again in the future.

My family and I had a great experience with Sheryl. We had a huge family photo shoot due a very meaningful reunion- with a newborn, several Oct. birthday celebrants, and a family member that has been in remission with cancer for one year to the date. I was coming from out of state and I searched online for photographers. What caught my attention and what drew me to Sheryl was her great eye and great shots from her portfolio. The colors in her pictures were vivid and creative and wanted to have memorable family photo shoot. She was very professional, easy to contact and talk with. One family member has to be careful with large crowds due to health issues, and she worked well with the space we had. She was resourceful, efficient and accommodating. And she worked well with all the kids- which were 6 in total! Overall, I highly recommend Sheryl for her professionalism, her talent, and for her thoughtfulness.

My first experience with Kenny was an email exchange. The exchange was friendly, energetic and positive and set the tenor and tone for the entire experience. A phone conversation ensued, and that was again positive and friendly and upbeat. In fact, Kenny is not only a professional, but he’s one who is enthusiastic about his chosen métier. I mentioned that I’m a serious amateur photographer and he immediately jumped at the chance to talk about his passion. In other words, Kenny is not only interested in the business end of things but truly enjoys his work and talking about it. I immediately felt comfortable with him. Kenny was the first of several photographers from Thumbtack that were on my list of contacts. But, as a result of the very positive conversation I had with him, I decided to hire him right then and there. The day of the photo session Kenny was ready to go on time. He welcomed me warmly into his studio and we proceeded to create some very nice looking professional head shots and 3/4 shots. Probably because Kenny remembered talking to me about my interest in photography, he explained things as he went along such as how and why he was lighting his subject in a certain way. He loves “talking shop” and I think this is a sign of someone dedicated to his art. I think this kind of individual makes the best professional. And the proof is borne out of the results. Kenny created some very nice photos about which I’ve already received numerous compliments and enthusiastic praise from family, friends and colleagues alike. I would definitely hire Kenny again. And… I still enjoy talking to him about photography. We still exchange emails and he’s still friendly and genuine. I can highly recommend Kenny to you for your professional photo needs.

I worked with Amina Touray when shooting my album cover in May 2013, which ended up with a NAACP Image Nomination! We shot outside in Pasadena during 3-4 hours and I felt very comfortable and relaxed in her presence. Amina and her make up artist were on time, ready for me and listened to my concerns and specific needs regarding the make up and angles of the shooting my body. I was very impressed with her way of giving me instructions and feedback, which helped me get what I wanted-the perfect pic for an album cover. The only thing that could have been better, was the area to get my make up done at, but that's more of a convienience issue than a must. Amina is by far one of the most talented photographers I've worked with, and I've since done 2 more shoots with her, as well as purchased her services for 2 friends of mine, so that they could get to feel like a superstar for a day, like I did.

Hugh was amazing to work with from prepping for the event until after the event. He was professional, friendly and super helpful. He was able to bring along a friend who was equally as great. The guests at the event loved both of them and inquired about who the photographers were after the event! And of course we were more than happy with the quality of the photos! Great work!!

I feel like I hit the jackpot when I found Jess ! She is an extraordinary photographer and so easy to work with. We are from Texas and wanted to take family photos on the beach while were were on vacation in California this summer. Jess helped us pick a beach, time of day, appropriate clothing and accessories and other tips that we would have never thought of - without Jess! Her eye for lighting and composition is impeccable. We ended up with 20+ photos that we love and a great experience to remember forever!

Thank you Mukaila for being such a great photographer for my son's first birthday! My guests thought that the pictures turned out well. Mukaila communicated well through email with specifics of our party. He also arrived on time and was able to take pictures of all the details of our party like I wanted. He was also able to be inconspicuous when he needed to be to get all the action pictures. Turn around time for the pictures was only a week. That is a lot quicker than a lot of other photographers that I have worked with before. If we ever have another event, I would definitely get a hold of Mukaila again.

Jeff was the photographer at my mom's 60th Birthday party....I can't say how pleased I was with his work. My family and friends were impressed with how friendly and professional he was. The pictures turned out better than I could have imagined. He is by far the most affordable of the photographers we considered and his work speaks for itself. He's our guy for the next event.

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.
