David did an excellent job. I needed a headshot taken on a very short notice. After submitting on thumbtack.com, he responded quickly. I was not sure if I would find someone who would be willing to shoot me over the weekend. David not only agreed to work with me over the weekend but was also very accommodating of my crazy schedule. From the time, he entered our house to the time he left, his professionalism and mannerism were exceptional. He didn't complain even a bit when my four years old decided to stay and help us with the photo shoot. My wife was not thrilled with my formal look and was wondering if David can take few shots of me in business casual. David without complaining waited for me to get changed and shot me again in the casuals. I needed the photos by Monday, a couple of hours after the session on Sunday afternoon, he uploaded all the images and finished the retouching the same night. Very late in the night, I sent him an email requesting few minor touches. Guess what, when I woke up Monday morning, the changes were complete. David finished it first thing in the morning. Unbelievable!. I am extremely pleased with the quality of his work. Photo sessions can be daunting at times, but working with David made it a pleasant experience. I would highly recommend David for any type of photo needs. -Amit

He was a great communicator via email. We were all impressed by his quick responses. He was very flexible and willing to do whatever it takes to work the best for us such as suggesting great ideas about locations. We ended up starting the photo shoot later than expected. Fortunately it worked out ok. He was nice and generous to make us all happy. We did wish we had more family photos rather than individual photos. Being that, we were all new at having a photographer for our family photo outside of a studio, we realized that for all photographers, you need to have a list of what you would want done for the photo shoot. As it turns out, we were able to get good family photos.

Tanya is a phenomenal photographer. I love how she knows exactly what she is doing and how creative she is! She has done numerous photo shoots for our family, including second day photos for our wedding, maternity photos, family portraits, our daughter's first birthday, and many more! I am so very thankful to have all these photos that can be framed around our home! One of my favorite things about Tanya, is that she knows how to position people to look their best but still look natural and not awkward. Lastly, she will go through mud and crouch between pokey rose bushes just to get that perfect shot! Tells you a lot about what circumstances she is willing to go through to achieve perfection. Thank you Tanya!

My cousin asked me to help him find a photographer for his wedding because they were having trouble finding a good photographer who was also affordable. In less than 24 hours of putting a request out on Thumbtack, Meagan contacted me. She was so sweet, she stayed all night for no extra charge and the pictures were absolutely stunning. My cousin and his wife called me to rave about how much they loved Meagan and her work. Thank you so much for making David and Brie’s day so special and for making me look like a hero for finding you lol. :)

Francesco takes all my pictures for my Instagram account (@mexicanyogagirl), and family portraits. I love that he is open to new ideas at the same time he directs me so I always end up with the best version of myself in a picture. He is so easy to work with and I love his happy and professional attitude. I recommend him for any type of photo shoots. Honestly you are not going to get anybody as dedicated as he is. He will make sure the quality of the pictures is exactly what you have dreamed.

A wedding is something that should be cherished forever. It's important to have an amazing venue, great food and friends there but without a photographer capturing those moments many are forgotten. Robert Hall was everything and more that I wanted in a wedding photographer. If you are looking for a professional, kind, talented photographer look no further. He and his beautiful wife were so attentive to my requests and lifted loads of stress from me at our wedding. The dynamic duo was honestly the glue that held together our wedding at moments. Robert will be an asset to you on your wedding day! There is no doubt that I was blessed with the perfect photographer for our wedding day, and I continue to be blessed as I look through our gorgeous photos.

Denise was awesome!! She is very professional, and she picked a gorgeous location for our shoot. She was on time, and knew her way around which was impressive as we did not lol and had never been to Washington Oaks before. She was very personable and friendly, and she asked us to do exercises such as express reasons you all love each other to take meaningful, genuine shots of happiness which I never experienced before and it was a great technique. Not to mention our pictures came out beautiful and she really captured the essence of family in our photos <3 I would definitely recommend her to friends and family!!! THANK YOU DENISE FOR ALL OF YOU HARD WORK!! :)

We asked Kristin to photograph our family (six adults and four children ages 9, 6, 3 and 1.5) as a 70th birthday present for my mom. Kristin was really great to work with and we have amazing photos from a very fun shoot. Thanks again for a great day and wonderful memories. I'll be in touch to book another session in soon!

We hired Adventures in HD Production do our family portraits and we had an AWESOME experience. The shoot was relaxed, fun and professional. I am pregnant and Caitee really helped put me at ease and gave us some beautiful shots of our family. The turn around time on the photos was very quick, which has not always been my experience with other photographers. I loved our session so much, I hired Adventures to do my professional portrait, which also turned out great! Our baby is due this February and we have also booked Caitee to do our newborn photo shoot. Can't say enough about Adventures in HD Production! Wish we knew about them for our wedding photos and videography! Look forward to working with them again.

I worked with Janet to shoot both our engagement and wedding photos. Not only did our photos come out fantastic, her expertise and professionalism is extraordinary! She makes the experience so much fun and comfortable to be yourself- even making jokes to help you laugh naturally. It nice to be able to work with someone that listens to exactly what your vision is and will make that vision come to life. My husband and I LOVE photo shoots with Janet. I have recommended her to all my friends and family. I cannot wait until the next time we need to use her again in the future!!

We were really fortunate to have Harland take some really beautiful fall family pictures of our family. We knew we wanted pictures taken outdoors of our whole family as well as shots of our 2 boys. Harland not only found a great location for us he captured both boys personalities perfectly in the pictures he took. Harland was able to engage our boys to get some of my all time favorite shots of them as well as lovely pictures of the whole family. We would highly recommend him and would love to work with him again!

    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.
