I hired Diana to take some graduation photos of my friend and I. The photos turned out wonderful. Diana is very professional, gives great instruction, and she has a wonderful eye for backgrounds and lighting.

Gideon was an amazing professional photographer! My pictures are beautiful! He was fun to work with with great direction. He contacted me before, during and after my shoot. I've worked with some photographers that "disappear" and it takes months for pictures or email responses. Not with Gideon! Professional and super fun at the same time! Thank you so much!

Chris did an amazing job with our couples portraits. We will definitely be using him again once we get married. He was really understanding during our quick awkward faze at the beginning of the photo shoot but made us feel really comfortable and even laughed with us when we were being complete idiots. He was really knowledgeable about lighting, places to go and gave us a recommendations on different places to walk to during the shoot. I am so happy with the outcome of our pictures and not to mention the price was perfectly in our budget. He exceeded our expectations completely.

Andy did an absolutely spectacular job with our family pictures, and he was a joy to be around. We had five adults and three very small children, and he handled us all excellently, even entertaining and soothing a toddler when she started going off the rails. We even got to see the finished product online in the same day! He caught a variety of shots, from goofy to casual to lightly posed, as we requested when we booked. Andy is very responsive and extremely professional. He explained everything very thoroughly, both when he was arranging the shoot beforehand and when he was on site that day. He made us feel involved and never balked at our questions. This was my first time working with Andy, and I look forward to working again and again for future photography needs. Thanks for helping us make such great memories, Andy!

Talented, professional, and flexible. He took my graduations photos from UC Davis and met up with me in the area. He brought his equipment and implemented all my ideas. Overall, open-minded and great to work with. His pricing was cheaper than most photographers and photos were received sooner than I thought. I highly recommend.

Giving 5 Stars to Trendz Team Photography is not enough! Their work has been hands down the most amazing I've seen. As a little girl, you dream of your wedding and you can only hope to find a photographer that can capture those special moments. Working with Samantha and Bao made me forget about worries and realize this is the best day of my life. They went out of their way to work with us to create beautiful pictures for our wedding, and did it in a stress free way! We have found not only life time photographers for our family, but two life time friends. There's not enough words to say just how amazing Samantha and Bao are! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Kathleen took family portraits of my cousins and I at my aunts house before she opened her studio. She was professional and creative with awesome ideas. The pictures turned out great and we were all very satisfied. From what I've seen, her work has only improved since opening her studio. I would definitely recommend her for any occasion!

Also pricing was very reasonable! Thank you Valerie!

Shelby is an awesome photographer. We LOVE our pictures and look back on them with fondness. It rained on our wedding day and she stuck it out with us. She captured all the best moments. Ultimately we came away with pictures that looked like they could have been in wedding magazines, we couldn't be more pleased.

Justin is truly a talented photographer. He was open minded and patient, and easy to communicate with leading up to our shoot. He listened to exactly what I wanted - candid, non-posed family portraits, and every shot turned out how I envisioned. I'm a fan of natural lighting and composition and Justin's photography style is what drew me to his work. I'm more than happy with our family photos and will undoubtedly be using J.O. Photography in the future!

    My College Roommate and I both booked Natalie for our Senior Portraits after seeing the stellar job she did with some of our college friends, fraternity bros & Sorority sisters. I felt really comfortable in front of her and loved that she was so accommodating to the vision I had for my portrait shots. I appreciated the fact that she takes so many shots so that I could have a variety to choose from but OMG the worst part is deciding which picture I like the most!. Keep up the great work Nat!

      Lisa is sure to provide you with beautiful photos and wonderful memories that will last a lifetime. Her professionalism and passion for her work is unparalleled. I had a great experience from start to finish. I never had to wait long for a response from her. Lisa created such a fun environment during the session. I never knew being photographed could be so much fun!! I also got to see the photos quickly, and they are such high quality! I couldn't be happier with the service I got from Lisa. She's so amazing and reasonably priced, I'll never use another photographer!

      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.
