Excellent value with the family photos, wedding photos and photo booth. I particularly liked getting all my photos on a disc so I could send them and print them as needed. The photo booth was a big hit and a great addition.

Our experience with Kevin was awesome. Our group of seventeen consisted of eight adults and nine kids (ranging from ten months to sixteen years.) We've made a point to do pictures yearly since the kids were young. There have been other photographers that we used (all doing a very fine job), but we will definitely return to Kevin. Kevin was great with the kids, his patience was beyond expectations. We asked for journalistic photos not just portraits and he did an amazing job catching the moments that we experienced. Thank you, Kevin! ~The Winfrey's

Matthew was amazing! I am not only impressed with the pictures he took, which were awesome, but the level of service and professionalism. We had to reschedule our appointment numerous times do to construction issues (our fault), Matthew was incredibly patient with us. I have definitely found my new photographer for all my future listings. Matthew is the entire package! I highly recommend him. EXCELLENT!

I've worked with several photographers in the Denver area & so far, I am most impressed with Aquarelle Imagery. Not only because of price, but because of the quality! Lilya was very responsive & worked with me to to get the creative shots that I was looking for. She is extremely professional & worth every penny! I will definitely be using her services again!

A++++ My home (Bet Kelev - The House of Dog) is done in K9 Judaic and it has been featured in the Rocky Mtn News when it was around. At one time Bet Kelev was to be featured on HGTV - but the series was cancelled. I treasure the oil paintings of my dogs past and present and have a major portrait of each generation gracing the living room wall. I have, in the past, spared little expense on these portraits - hiring 'big name' hotsy totsy well well known photographers. Now please don't get me wrong, I am not unhappy with the portrait of Moolah, Buddy, Ricki and Nicki nor the one of Moses, Elle and Max. But... The portrait just done by Sarah DeGroot is terrific - in a different league. Capturing black standard poodles is no small feat - and the portrait was done in the living room - not a studio unlike the others - and quite frankly far far superior - and far far less costly. (She should raise her rates!) Also note a close friend who represented nationally the Pentax account (when it was Number 1 in the US) who knows photography - was very impressed as doing black dogs 'is very very difficult.' He explained why technically but I still have no idea - other than this is the best portrait of my dogs - period. Photographing black dogs let alone my Sinai Standard poodles (Reb Simcha & Her Ladyship Goodie)is difficult - just think how well Sara would do with even easier subjects and less demanding guardians than this Man of Dog for family portraits Would I hire Sara again?

Marvin, and his business Marvelous Images, are AWESOME!! When we started looking for wedding photographers, we interviewed several before we came across Marvin's portfolio. After reviewing his portfolio we were excited to meet him and set up an appointment to see if his personality meshed with ours. We are extremely easy going and fun loving people... we wanted the same in our photograher. After meeting Marv, we decided to reserve his services before the end of our meeting. We loved the fact that he "likes to capture the moments between the moments" and were excited. We added an engagement session to our package and waited for the big day. Our engagement session went beautifully and we were so happy with the results, that we were certain the wedding photos were going to be epic. Sure enough, the images came out BEAUTIFULLY!!! Everyone had so much fun! Marvin and his assistant photographer Jackie captured so many of the unique little moments we were hoping for. We loved Marvelous Images so much that we have decided we will be doing a photo session with Marv every year for our anniversary. I will be doing my new headshots with him as well and this looks like the beginning of a wonderful relationship with an amazing photography company! Make sure you reserve your dates as early as possible... Marvin is booked pretty quickly because he is such a pleasure to work with. THANK YOU Marvelous Images!!!

I’ve worked with plenty of photographers and have even chatted with twice as many more and I can say that TWC’s rates are one of the best if not the best out there! They know how to be professional, break the ice, be innovative with the location, and they provide everything you ask for for less than $1000, much much less for quality photos that may as well be $1000+ Glen and Alana will surely impress you as their client.

Dave is very enthusiastic about his craft. His attention to detail and creative style are unmatched. I have never had such a fun experience with a photographer before and been so pleased with the final work. I even had access to the final product within 48 hours, which is great! Most photographers will take weeks to get your pictures to you, so this was a pleasant surprise. I even recommended my brother to Dave for his upcoming wedding photos.

If you are looking for a wedding photographer look no further - Frances was simply awesome. You can tell she loves what she does and has been doing this for a while, because she guided us all the way through. Do consider hiring her lead photographer Tony as well, the two make an incredible team, it was fun to watch both of them work together, when we got our final images (WHICH WE ADORE!) we could see how Frances and Tony compliment each other in this craft - both have their own artistic styles, and added so much to our album. Love, love, love. Thank you.

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.
