Frank was wonderful! My family and I were traveling to Georgia from out of town and we only had one day to have our family photos taken. He traveled to us and was absolutely spot on of the outdoor location we were considering. He made everything easy, made us feel very comfortable and we really enjoyed the experience. Oh yeah and to no surprise...our photos came out amazing and we have wonderful photos to remember our trip!

Diego was AWESOME! He was great to help us relax when posing for our wedding pictures. Great sense of humor too! He saved our special day being available with such a short notice. We totally recommend him to anyone needing a great photographer. There wasn't a single picture that he missed! David and Alvin

Barbie did newborn photos for our family. She did an incredible job! She was so knowledgeable regarding all aspects of the photoshoot. She knew how to schedule the shoot.. given the unknown timing circumstances. She had to travel several hours for us and was on time! Her ability to work with a newborn and just know what would work with her was amazing! I'm so glad I trusted her with the first few memories of our family. The photographs are priceless and perfect. I was not disappointed and would be honored to include her photography in future family events.

Jaki is my go-to photographer and I have hired her for many jobs - from maternity and family portraits to professional head shots. What makes her so unique from other photographers is her ability to create a relaxed atmosphere. When Jaki walks into the session, immediately there is an air of fun, personality, and professionalism. The subject becomes relaxed and the genuine soul is caught on film. I have enjoyed every single one of my sessions and will most definitely hire her for many more.

Matt came and did some 1 year photos for our family with our daughter. We used someone different for her birth photos and while they were good photos before, Matt had a great eye for where to take photos and how to take them that other photographers seemed to miss or lack. He found some beautiful outdoor spots in our town and took us there for several hours of shooting. They turned out great and he also sent us all the electronic files, edited for the best shots. We look forward to using him again!

Karl has been excellent to work with. He is professional, creative and communicative. His work is beautiful and he feels like an extension of my creative team even though we are located on opposite sides of the country. I would love to post images of his final work but I'm not at liberty to do that at this time. I hired Karl to take black and white portraits of employees for a multinational medical/pharmaceutical company. He brought so much character and drama to the imagery. I would hire him again in a heartbeat and highly recommend him.

Nina asked me if she could do a portrait sitting of our family for her portfolio. I thought about it, and realized what I really wanted was photos of our two Golden Retrievers, by themselves and with my husband and me. The dogs are ages 10 and 11, and, although I have lots of cell phone photos of them, they are not of great quality, nor am I in any of them! I knew Nina was a dog owner herself, so I asked her if she would consider doing such a photo shoot, and she was excited to accept. She arrived bright and early on the appointed day. She quickly made friends with Eddie and Bridget, the two dogs, and we got right down to business. The first thing I wanted to do was to recreate a pose from an 11-year-old photo where I’m holding Eddie in my lap, on the day we brought him home as a 9-week-old puppy. I even put on the same shirt I was wearing in that long ago picture! It was a little difficult to get a 70-lb. dog to curl up in my lap the way he did as a puppy, but we finally managed to do it, and I was very pleased with the results. Then Nina took many shots (500+), both inside and outside, first of each dog alone, then of the dogs with my husband, then with me, then of all four of us together, then of the dogs together playing with their favorite toys. Nina was very imaginative in the poses she suggested for us and for the dogs. She did a great job of working with them, using every manner of sound and body language to get them to look at the camera! We had such fun with her that day. She made it easy to be relaxed and just enjoy the dogs. I have a terrible smile when I’m being told to smile, but she didn’t have to tell me to smile once all morning! Within three days, she had distilled those 500+ photos down to the best 81, which she sent to us in a ZIP file. There are so many different groups of shots, and as hard as it was, I think I’ve finally identified my favorites in each group. I’m going to have a few of my very favorite ones printed for framing. She helped us to preserve some very precious memories. I would highly recommend Nina for her photographic skills. She is also very personable, and fun to work with, and is able to coax winning smiles out of dogs and humans alike!

I very seldom take the time to post reviews regarding service; however, because I was so impressed with the service I received from HD Shot Studio I wanted to share my experience. I was working on a proposal as part of a consulting team and the decision was made on a Friday to include headshots for each team member and it had to be submitted by Sunday. Because I did not have a professional headshot I immediately contacted photographers in the area that could accommodate my short timeframe and deliver the headshot in the same day. I contacted HD Shot Studio from my Google search and talked with Dean who worked me in on Sunday and delivered the photos within a few hours. Given that I hate taking pictures, Dean was professional, easy to work and with made the photo shoot fun. He gave me different options with background and poses and spent enough time to deliver a terrific headshot. Thanks again Dean! I would recommend your service.

A very different engagement photo shoot that she instantly had ideas on top of my ideas! Proofs came back so quick! I like the website link to send to my family out of state. We were nervous of course but we started warming up and the pictures are better than I could have imagined! Now to just choose the finals ;)

Anchor + Oak Photography was such a pleasure to work with! From initial contact to gallery delivery, they were very clear & communicative. We originally found them via Instagram because they had previously photographed a wedding at our venue & we were pleasantly surprised at their investment costs, even though this would be a “destination” wedding for them. Upon arrival & meeting in person for the first time on our wedding day, it was almost like running into a long lost friend! They quickly got to work & never missed a beat throughout the day, silently reassuring me that I could live in the moment & relive the memories for a lifetime through photos. Being a wedding photographer is no easy feat, but this duo does it with grace & ease. I would highly recommend working with Anchor + Oak (we already have friends that have also booked them & we look forward to seeing them again!) to write your story through their beautiful photography skills.

I found Annik to be very professional, easy to work with, and meticulous in regards to detail. The pictures she take come out absolutely beautiful in detail, color and lighting. I also had a portrait done for which Mrs. Dhooghe again was wonderful to work with. She patiently and creatively suggested poses and props to make the portrait more inviting. I was thrilled with the final product. I would highly recommend Mrs. Dhooghe for any photography venture you have in mind. She is very well rounded in the art and does an extremely professional job.

Dealora was absolutely wonderful to work with! She was the one wedding vendor about whom I knew the least before the wedding, and she turned out to be the one I liked the most! She did a great job of making my daughter feel at ease at both her bridal portrait session in the mountains and at the wedding itself, even though my daughter is not very comfortable being in front of the camera. I will definitely be booking with her again if another wedding comes along in the future for my younger daughter!

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.
