Griffith Photographers is one of the best photographer companies that I have worked with in all my experiences with photographers. Not only are the pictures professional grade and high quality, working with Gregory is such a delight. He is a true professional and goes out of his way to make sure his clients get the pictures they desire. I highly recommend Gregory Griffith and Griffith Photographers.

Working with Adrian was absolutely wonderful. I originally didn't want to hire a wedding photographer; the style of the wedding was very laid back, and I was intimidated by the photography package prices I saw online. On thumbtack, I was able to find a few photographers who were willing to provide what we wanted for a price that I found reasonable. We contacted several of these photographers, and had a lot of trouble working with several people. Adrian responded promptly and professionally to my questions, and from the very beginning seemed to be the most professional of the (many) photographers I had contacted. We were impressed with Adrian's photography online, and we decided to work with him for our wedding. We are so happy we did! Not only did Adrian maintain professional correspondence from the time I first contacted him until even after the wedding, he helped us understand the process of working with a photographer. He was very understanding and flexible working with us long distance, as this was a destination wedding. Working with Adrian the day of the wedding was wonderful. Adrian was extremely helpful, and took photos around our venue while I was getting ready and didn't want to be photographed. He captured special, important parts of the wedding that otherwise may have even been forgotten; the notes I had left on the kitchen table for my Mom, my sneakers for later in the wedding, my and my husband's rings, flowers, and so much more. He took some posed pictures before the wedding, and captured special moments like my Dad and I waiting in the doorway to walk down the aisle. During the ceremony and most of the reception, I didn't even realize he was there. He captured wonderful and special moments without ever making me feel like we were all being photographed. At the end of the wedding, after some posed pictures and family pictures, Adrian borrowed an invitation from my cousin and my bouquet, and took a beautiful picture on a lot next to the arbor that he composed independently. Little details like this made Adrian more than just wonderful to work with; he is truly a talented photographer!

We hired Charles for our son's first birthday party to shoot family portraits before guests arrived and capture action shots during the party including the smash cake. He did a wonderful job, and we have have some beautiful shots. He takes his time to make sure the lighting and the shot are just right. . He even stayed a little longer than originally planned to make sure we had pictures from as much of the event as possible. Charles also provided the pictures very quickly after the event, which was great! Thank you!

What made Anna stand out to me from the other photographers who responded to my request for a professional headshot is that she followed up with me a several days after the fact to check in on me. I really appreciated that small gesture, because it's something very few professionals would do, and made me feel like my needs were being met. Anna also reached out to me again several days before the photo shoot to provide me clothing tips, which was extremely helpful. She is very detailed oriented and polite. During the session at her studio, I felt taken care of. She checked in with me to see if there was anything I needed (i.e. water, etc) and went above and beyond to make sure the photos were the best they can be.

We hired August & Katherine for our wedding and we can't thank them enough for the great pictures they captured! They transformed our simple courthouse wedding into something out of a fairytale. I would definitely recommend them to anyone in the market for a photographer for their big day.

Wow. My fiancé and I are speechless. Brian and Troy are two of the most talented photographers we have encountered. Very personable and easy to work with, Brian and Troy were able to capture moments that only true wedding photographers can document. We recommend Brian Adams Photographics, Inc. to anyone who is searching for truly memorable photographs and keepsakes for their big day. You will not be disappointed!

I’ve had the great fortune of working with Carey P many times over the years, both as a model and a fellow photographer and, with absolute consistency, he is one of my favorite photographers. Not only are the final results of his photo shoots stellar, but his professionalism, friendly manner, and years of experience show through in the ease at which he allows people to feel comfortable in front of his lens, and the way he directs people who aren’t used to being in front of the camera so they get the best results pssible. No matter your level of experience or what you need photos for, Carey P has you covered!

OMG I LOVVVEEEEEE 21 moments photography. The quality in the pictures are amazing. Not only that, she makes you feel so comfortable taking pictures if you aren’t so photogenic. Also, she gives the best posing positions for the best photo. I’m telling you, simply amazing. My newborn even took to her soooo well. She’s done my maternity, baby shower, graduation, family, and newborn pictures. I just love her work and professionalism. I can’t wait to use 21 moments photography again.

Hands down, Bob Engel is an exquisite choice for any and all photography needs. He is my family's and business' go-to photography source and never fails to go above and beyond, in execution as well as delivery. "A true professional" describes this photographer. While shooting, Bob is a real pleasure to be around and has amazing, creative, and out of the ordinary ideas. His eye for detail is outstanding. His editing and enhancing skills on his photos are unbelievable. He is also an excellent communicator in person as well as for all phone calls and emails. The first time I used Bob's service, I was blown away at how quickly he had my photos ready for me to view online and make orders for. After using Bob on several further occasions, he has never failed to have my photos ready to view promptly, usually within a few days of shooting. You will not be disappointed!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.
Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
