Brad Zangwill and staff are by far the most amazing photographers ever--would Never have photography done with anyone else. This project was our wedding. Of course we wanted everything perfect--and it was. Brad shows such enthusiasm, creativity, and sensitivity to what we wanted. He suggested things I didn't even think to do. He was so very easy to get a hold of--always responding back to me--Same Day!! He was always on time. The quality of the pictures were outstanding, all at reasonable cost, and he is just one easy man to work with. Because he kept his cost down, I was able to include other things--like a little interview of us that he showed at the wedding before the ceremony started. People really loved that! No need to look further--he is your man!! I am happy to recommend him and would be happy to speak with anyone individually as well...just call. 909-240-9211--kathy

I have only the best things to say about Ivan and his work product! He was very communicative ahead of our event, and flexible (as we had to change the reception venue more than once!). He showed up on time before the wedding and worked with everyone in a very polite, professional manner. He took THE BEST PICTURES (we have received SO MANY compliments on his work already, just from the pictures from this event)!!! We are so blessed to have had chosen Ivan as the photographer for our daughter's wedding, we cannot recommend him more highly. YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED with ANYTHING, trust me!! I had never met Ivan or done business with him or on Thumbtack prior to using him for this December wedding, so I have no reason to provide anything other than a very candid opinion and review. I will definitely use this site again for any event planning, and if I need a photographer in the future, I would not hesitate to hire Ivan again. Thank you Ivan!!!

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!

I needed new work headshots and a family photo with my 3 dogs. This was my first time using Thumbtack and I received bids from 5 local photographers. I decided to to with John Glover because of the precision and great attention to detail I noticed in his sample photos. John's photos came out nothing short of amazing, he even captured all my dogs at attention at once. My headshots came out better than any headshots I've ever taken. Highly recommend using him.

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.

Susan is an amazing photographer.  The pictures look like they belong in the hospitals (labor and delivery wing) and in magazines. I was so happy when she took time with the baby and didn't rush. She was so loving and understanding and we even stopped between the shoot to feed baby. When baby was crying, she encouraged me to stop and pick her up to calm her and then we would start again whereas at other studios I felt rushed and like I was inconveniencing them. She has an amazing imagination and she was relentless to find the perfect shot for the baby. When the baby was too fussy she figured out a way to take the shots of her ON ME!! You can't even tell I was holding her. In my opinion, that is truly amazing! You could really tell this is a talent and true passion of Susan's. The pictures came out so amazing and I would definetly use her again for any of our photographic needs.

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 hired Jordan to photograph a baby shower. Our theme was a little less traditional, so we needed someone that could keep up with the movement through out the party and Jordan did a great job. We got some really great candid / action shots. We'll use his set up shots for marketing purposes, but his work was great, and we're happy to share them with the guests of honor. Jordan was super responsive and easy to work with. We'll absolutely call him for future events.

Hugh is a great guy, a real pro photographer, easy to work with, and creative at a thumbtack competitive rate. I'm a Realtor and have worked with other photographers before. Set a time to meet and he even scouted the area beforehand for multiple locations ready to shoot; and spent a lot of time with us too. Offered a proof sheet, we picked out favorite photos, and he retouched the photos and delivered with a fast turnaround. Will use him again.

Ron was brilliant! I could have not asked for a better photographer to cover my boudoir shoot! He was absolutely phenomenal. Words could not really describe how happy I am of the outcome! I already booked another session in advance! His eye for detail is awesome! I was very comfortable and he did everything I had envisioned and even more! I highly recommend Ron to anyone needing any type of photography and especially any boudoir session! His studio is amazing! I can't wait for my next session! FYI: He will work with your schedule and always try his best to accommodate you!

We recently reached out to Ashley regarding maternity photos and newborn photos. We decided to go with Ashley based on her responsiveness and professionalism. She is so sweet and flexible. She offered suggestions on sites for our maternity photos and did not mind working with our dog. She was able to get our photos back in a week and honestly, there are so many great photos-- we don't know which ones to choose! We highly recommend Ashley and look forward to using her again when our little boy arrives.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

Where is the best place to take baby pictures?

Baby pictures are among the most popular types of portrait photography, and most newborn photographers are well versed in the best places to take baby pictures in their local areas. Some newborn photographers will come to the hospital to shoot the baby within a day or two of birth, while others have set up their studios to accommodate the needs of infants. Some parents prefer to have the newborn photographer come to their home or travel to a favorite park or other outdoor location. Like any portrait photography, the best place to take baby pictures is the place you like best and that will yield the types of photos you want of your baby, whether that’s posed and carefully lit studio portraits or spontaneous, casual photos at home. Work with a local newborn photographer to find a safe, calm location with great lighting and some privacy for your family.

How much does baby photography cost?

Portrait photography provides parents with lasting images of the first whirlwind months of a newborn’s life. The cost varies based on several factors, including the length and location of the session, the number of photos provided, and the amount of editing and retouching the photographer does. The national average cost for baby photos is $150-$200. Some baby photographers charge by the number of photos provided, typically ranging from an average of $299 for 20 high-resolution edited photos, to an average of $399 for 35 photos, to $499 for all of the images taken in a single session. Props and location affect the cost, too; an elaborate studio shoot with props and professional lighting may increase the cost to $600-$700 for 20-50 photos. Adding a second location or asking the photographer to travel can add $70-$250 to the cost of the session. Photographers may also charge extra fees for providing additional photos and DVDs, scheduling weekend sessions, and shooting siblings. Expect to pay at least a $50 deposit when you book a portrait photography session.

When should you take newborn photos?

Few styles of portrait photography are as tricky as newborn photos — the unpredictable infant is always in charge! The best way to ensure a successful photo shoot is to work with a local newborn photographer within the first two weeks of the baby’s life. Some photographers even work with hospitals to offer newborn sessions within a day of the baby’s birth. But newborn photographers usually recommend scheduling a shoot during the baby’s first two weeks of life, while the baby is still sleepy and relatively cooperative, especially for posed or studio shots. During this time, babies are easier to swaddle in blankets and dress in hats or headbands, and, because they often nap or nurse, can be staged with various props or be cuddled by their parents. For casual photos, most newborn photographers recommend shooting within the first six weeks of a baby’s life. Lifestyle portrait photography is more flexible and doesn’t require the baby to cooperate with multiple poses or props.
