Needing a corporate portrait, I reached out to Thumbtack to hire a professional photographer. Being somewhat camera shy, I knew it wasn't going to be easy. I received about 5 quotes and spent time going through their reviews. I was quite impressed with how many great reviews JoAnne received. Upon going over her work, I decided to give her a call. I shared with her about my shyness and that I was my worst critic and probably not going to be that easy to work with. She assured me, I wasn't alone and that it would be no problem. Just talking to her on the phone was calming and reassuring to someone as "camera shy" as me. Well, from the moment we met and all through the photo shoot, I felt at ease. She spent time getting to know me and I felt very comfortable throughout the shoot. It was rather fun! I feel that I overcame a fear of sorts...a great feeling in itself! I unequivocally recommend JoAnne Besides all of the above, the images are AMAZING!! The color, the clarity and the poses, all put together made for one beautiful corporate portrait. Thank you so much JoAnne, I will be recommending you to all my friends and family needing a professional, highly qualified photographer. With much appreciation, Mary C

Marc photographed my sweet 16 and the pictures came out amazing! I was originally unimpressed with the photographer that came with my DJ and I'm so glad I found Marc instead. He is so nice and is knowledgable of his art, equipment, etc. I believe the price was very fair and the photos came out wonderful. He did his job as the photographer by not only taking photos but also telling us all how to pose and where we could photograph. He made sure to bring assistants, multiple cameras (with different lenses), and proper lighting with him to create the best photos possible. I'm so glad I have such awesome photos (and different types) to share with my family and friends!

They are amazing photographers and we couldn't be happier with the photos. Their price is low and it is an incredible value. They were so down to earth and easy to work with. If we ever need a photographer again we will use Meraki Photo. I will strongly recommend them to friends and family.

I have been using Beth Madison Photography for my family photos for several years, and I couldn’t be happier. I have 3 girls ranging in age from 22months to 10 years old and we've worked with Beth on birth, christening, first communion and other family events! Beth connected with my girls right away, put them at ease and got them giggling. Needless to say with 3 girls Beth has an abundance of patience a very important trait in dealing with a chaotic environment! At our shoots, she was meticulous in her preparation acknowledging in working with children the importance of keeping the actually photo shoot short and concise. Beth did a combination of candid and posed shots and always went above and beyond to make everything work together even with last minute changes! She always delivered beautiful images of my children happy and being themselves. What’s more, she gave us lots of time and personal attention and I was involved in every step of the process if that's what I preferred. Otherwise, she was very happy to make suggestions referring back to her extensive experience in the art of photography. When I first started looking for a photographer, I considered using larger photographer companies and high-end portrait photo chains. I wanted something more personal for my family, I found Beth Madison Photography, and I’m thrilled with the results and will continue to use Beth to capture other family milestones in the future.

Hire Neckbones Photography today. I was honestly skeptical because of James' affordable prices (how could this guy offer what the other people offer but cost so much less?) but this was the BEST vendor choice of my entire wedding. His picture quality is fantastic. He customizes everything to fit your needs. He takes beautiful video coverage of your wedding when his Photo Booth isn't in use. He went above and beyond for my husband and I and we are grateful. James offers two different styles of Photo Booth: A blow up big bouncy house style, which we didn't use but looks cool especially for a night time event... especially because you can customize the uplighting he uses in that booth, and a open air booth with a hung backdrop. James set up the booth and had it running well before our cocktail hour. The photo booth was by far the most popular aspect of the entire wedding. I'm attaching a few pictures from our booth so that you can see the camera quality and lighting quality. I had other requests for James, random ones, which he graciously complied with and he helped make so many things happen for us. The day after our wedding James drove to us to hand deliver all of our Photo Booth hard copies (in a lovely photo album) full sized photos of all of our family pictures and special pictures, and a jump drive with ALL of the Photo Booth pictures and video footage. On top of the phenomenal coverage and quality, James was a total sweetheart. He was kind and humble and never demanding. At one point we were looking for our photographer to take a picture during the dinner with my grandmother and husband and we didn't see her. We saw James was videotaping us and asked him to take a picture of us and he said, "I'll run and get her. I don't want to step on her toes." Less then 30 seconds later he was back with her and we got our shot. Your other vendors, and venue will love working with him. HIRE THIS COMPANY.

I'm not really one who likes taking pictures but I needed some professional headshots. I received a few quotes and after reviewing profiles and websites I selected Dominick. I really liked his work and all of his clients looked great in their pictures. I wasn't disappointed. The photos he took off me came out great and I rarely like my photos. I had a hard time choosing the main picture I would use. I highly recommend Dominick. He's professional, prompt, and most importantly, a magician with the camera. Yes. Smartphones come with apps we can use to pretend we're photographers but Dominick is the real deal. Insta-what? I highly recommend him and I'll be a repeat customer for sure.

AMAZING!!! I got proof prints and DVD of the shots of my baby shower two weeks after my Baby Shower day. All I want to say is amazing!!! I can't even express how much I love the photos. David is truly a master. He is a very friendly, at ease person. He is also very easy to relax around as he is taking your picture. All of his techniques and skills are essential for those photos. We feel so lucky to have David to be our Baby Shower photographer. He kept our best memories into the photos and I will never forget these moment. Thank you again David for capturing our special Day!!

Oleksandra was very responsive since she first contacted me and very nice overall. We were taking family photo, and at the photoshoot she gave us many good suggestions about layout and pose and such. And the result was professional and fantastic! Her work has more value than her price.

My husband and I recently had a maternity photo shoot. We are absolutely thrilled with the way our photos came out and cannot wait to welcome this new baby! We didn't know where to start with this photo shoot and Pickle pie photography was a big help in suggesting beautiful places to take the photos. We enjoyed taking many pictures with various poses and different lighting based on the sun. Overall our experience was wonderful and we highly recommend pickle pie photography!

I hired Kasey of KLH Photography to do a photo shoot for me for a portrait I'd use in business and for my business cards. I didn't want to do a typical head shot and had a pose in mind. Kasey came up with a couple of different poses and shot all the different ones so we could compare the best one. I was extremely happy with the results and with Kasey's ideas. I certainly would recommend KLH Photography to anyone looking to upgrade their image and looking for a new look! Joe Kapell

Emily is simply the best! She is so talented & is great at capturing the candid moments that show the true memories from your day, without even feeling like there is a photographer following you around. Emily photographed our wedding and the pictures are beautiful. We had a bright sunny day & she was able to get pictures that worked well with the lighting which is sometimes very difficult. The best part is how sweet Emily is, you will love having her be a part of your day/memories, her happiness rubs off on everyone and makes you even more excited to be doing your photos. She's creative in the shots she comes up with and pays attention to detail. I would 100% recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer!

Janice was not only professional, but she was extremely friendly and fit right in with the family. I feel she was a great photographer at my baby shower. She got many candid photos that I absolutely adore and couldn't have asked for a better person to share this experience with. I highly recommend her not only because she's a nice person she's awesome at what she does ! Will always use Janice!! Next is my daughters first birthday photos :) can't wait !

Jenna was a pleasure to work with. She was quick to respond and reach out, listened to ideas and feedback what we were looking for in our photo session, took the time to ask questions about my family and worked to get to know my kids and make them comfortable during the photo shoot. Our pictures look beautiful and we are very very happy with how they turned out. We were a group of 11- so we were a large group- and she did a great job of taking the time to work with us all and get the best pictures.

Our family loved working with Megan. Megan emailed back and forth with me several times leading up to our easter mini shoot, helping us pick outfits and prepare. She knew exactly how to get great photos of the children in the small amount of time. The children enjoyed working with her. Even though it was a holiday , she got me the photos very quickly—ahead of schedule ;they were all beautiful. Our favorite photo was one of my daughter that we were able to use as her birthday photo.

    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.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
