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!

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!

We hired Labra photographers for our engagement photos. They have a very reasonable rate for the exceptional pictures they take. They were open and flexible to what we wanted, as well they helped direct us to make sure we were taking good pictures. Loved our results (so many edited pictures to choose from), can't wait for them to shoot our wedding! Highly recommended.

Robert and his wife are amazing ! Choosing them as our photographers for my graduation photos was the best decision we made. They made the whole process enjoyable, natural, and professional. They are a joy to work with and they exceeded our expectations. They have a true natural talent for photography and are SUPER kind and accommodating. Their communication was consistent and efficient. If you want the most authentic photos in town, these are your people. Thank you Kyber Light Photography!

We did a photo shoot with my 3 kids 5yrs old and younger !! A lot of work to say the least ! We also thought to add baby chickens in the mix.. yes we're crazy haha ! BUT it went so well!! Courtney was so quick to capture such precious moments with them! The kids had so much fun with it! I've in the past went through so many different types of photography wether it was going to JCPenny or having up coming photographers do our door shoots and I felt always let down and dissatisfied with the final product.. BUT with Courtney we did a 30 min shoot and I was given the photo shoot writhing a couple days and was amazed at how amazing they were! I will forever use her! I'm even going to be redoing my wedding photos just so she can take them 🤗 !!!

I’ve worked with Brandon a few times and each time I’ve been blown away by his vision and the final product. He’s great to work with, always willing to try new things. I would highly recommend Brandon and his work to friends and family who want a fresh new vision in the photography world.

Working with Ricky was amazing, and he did such an amazing job at capturing all of the true emotions that we had on our wedding day. Right after meeting Ricky, my mom and I were so impressed we didn't have to see any more of his work to know he would be the perfect person to photograph my wedding. He is the sweetest most outgoing person and it was so fun to have him be a part of our day. It's funny when your vendors are such genuine people that you want to have them as your guests too! Ricky made sure to organize all shots, including group family photos. He made things so easy and relaxed. I Highly Highly recommend him, as he is truly great at what he does!

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.
