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

I was one of the authors at the Superstars Writing Seminar in Colorado Springs last month who accepted Lauren's offer of a free sitting for professional "bio" photos. I've had professional photos done before, but Lauren made it fun, and captured the "real me" far better than have other photographers. I'm delighted to have these photos to put on book covers. I'll certainly hire her to do photography for me in the future, and I highly recommend her.

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!

Such a wonderful photographer!! She and her husband made a 4 hour drive to our wedding location the last 1 hour of it being extremely muddy. She was polite, sweet, and accommodating. She took all the pictures we requested plus tons of others all of which we loved. She was priced much lower than the local "resort area" photographers but did an equally wonderful job. Would highly recommended for anyone needing a quality photographer with high quality results

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’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.

Sebastian did my engagement photos and I couldn't be happier! He was super easy to work with and caught moments that I don't think many photographers would consider. I really appreciate his artistic eye and ability to capture those playful moments.

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.

Jenny is an excellent photographer! I’d describe her as very professional, friendly and hard working. She has taken photos for me on multiple occasions. I love shooting with her. If you’ve ever taken professional photos, you’ll know that the mood of the shoot (largely set by the photographer) can affect the resulting photos. Ive always been so pleased with Jenny’s photos, and I believe that is in some way attributed to her loving and friendly attitude. She always makes me feel comfortable and she’s fun to work with! That mood during the shoot results in joyful and wonderful pictures. I love the fact that she listens to the desires of the customer, then works to achieve those desires as she is taking photos. I also love the way she edits her pictures. They’re beautiful and dramatic. Overall, Jenny is talented and totally the right choice!

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.
