I'm a first time user of Thumbtack, and am very impressed with the service. My request for a professional photographer's service referred me to Colorado Visions Photography, and I was very pleased with the results. I got exactly the product photographs I wanted for my e-commerce business, selling home products online. The photographs are now online, and I think they will make a big difference in higher sales than all my competitors. I will definitely use Colorado Visions Photography again, and will use Thumbtack for my future needs.

I hired Julie to take pictures for a family event. She came days before the event to familiarize herself with the room setup and lighting. She was there on the agreed date on time. We are pleased with her work. She is pleasant to work with.

I am a Realtor and worked with Jay to get professional photos. I am naturally awkward and uncomfortable in front of a camera, but he made it as painless as possible and the photos came out great! I would definitely use him again and would highly recommend him as well. Thanks Jay!

We loved working with the photographer. She was so nice, personable, professional and accommodating. She has taken beautiful senior pictures of our older daughter and we just got family pictures done. We have a family of 6- the youngest is 11 months and the oldest is 17, so it was no easy feat. We will be using her for years to come.

My family and I were on vacation and I wanted to have photos done. Heatherley came highly recommended and when I saw her photos I knew we had to use her. She was so fun to work with and both my son and husband who hate having their photos taken had a blast during the photoshoot. My son still talks about Heatherley to this day. I am also a photographer so I tend to be picky when it comes to who I use. Heatherley went above and beyond my expectations and produced, consistent, excellent quality photos for us. I would recommend Heatherley to anyone looking for a fun experience and timeless portraits.

The first word that comes to mind is integrity. There are a lot of photographers out there, but not all have integrity. This is the basis of who Dawn is and how she treats her clients. Dawn has a passion and ability to capture the heart of her clients through her artful photography. Once you see your photos, you'll be delighted at the moments and expressions that will forever tell your story!

We are so happy with both the professional and family photos josh has taken for us. He did a great job creating unique backgrounds for our products and really knows how to capture the light perfectly. With our family photos he was so personable and was very patient with our two young children. He was great at giving enough direction to create a beautiful photo, while still letting the poses be organic. He is so talented and we will definitely hire him again and recommend him to all of our family and friends. Thanks again for your amazing work!

The best photographer in the world! We met Lindsay for coffee and it was an instant connection! She was easygoing, warm and relaxed, she made us feel like we were the most important people in her life. She did our engagement session and our wedding. We didn't want posed photos, we wanted natural and real, and that's exactly what we got! She made us feel at ease, we laughed until we cried, it was perfect! I feel that we have a friend for life!

We went there to have some family picture taken, and then some just of the kids. The atmosphere was very accommodating, Idit made the process fun for the kids (!!) and the pictures themselves turned out great. Great experience, will definitely do this again.

I hired Jen for my son's 8th birthday party at our house. This is my third time hiring a photographer for my children's birthday parties and third time using Thumbtack. I'm fortunate that I haven't had a bad experience, but Jen has far surpassed everyone else. I love our photographs! And I am very uptight about pictures. I am the family photographer, I take way too many pictures trying to document my children and I'm often not in them as a result. I've been hiring photographers so that I can manage the birthday parties easier, maybe enjoy it a bit, and to be in some pictures. But Jen's picture quality is better than I would have taken. A double win! Jen was very easy to work with. She responded quickly to my bid. She was early to the party to get a sense of our house. She was super friendly and kind with the kids (we have a 8 year old and a 4 year old, and all the kids at the party liked her). She got my son to actually look at her and smile (something he doesn't do for me!). When I asked her to take specific pictures, she was happy to do it. It was a long, hot party and she was friendly and upbeat the whole time. If she was hot and exhausted, she didn't show it. I highly recommend her. She's a friendly, talented, hard working photographer. If you have any questions that I can answer, please let me know. I do get a little nervous hiring strangers for my kids' birthday parties, especially since some of them are at our house, but so far I've had great luck with Thumbtack and we love Jen! Hire her!

Dmitry was an excellent photographer. He was willing to meet up with us multiple times to look at the venue and talk about our vision for the pictures he took. At the wedding he was personable, professional, and yet he made sure that people were where they needed to be, doing what they needed to be doing in order to get all the posed pictures done in a timely manner. He was able to capture some incredible images, both posed and unposed. His second photographer is his wife and they have a wonderful working partnership. I would highly recommend him for anyone looking for an affordable but wonderful photographer.

Grace is just amazing! Her photos are so creative and beautiful! She is a truly skilled photographer who does well with all kinds of subjects. I just moved to Colorado and it's very sunny which sometimes makes it hard to find good lighting for dark skin. I'm confident that Grace can make good lighting easy for every skin tone and these photos prove it!

Susannah is such a talented photographer and is so fun and easy to work with. The photoshoot felt more like hanging out with a friend since she is so easy going and fun to be around. And her photos are nothing short of phenomenal...I would recommend her to any family looking to have a great, stress-free experience getting their photos taken!

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.
