Frank took pictures of my daughter (5) and son (2) and they turned out incredible! The setting he recommended was beautiful and he was very patient with them! These are the best photos I've gotten of them and have had their pictures taken by many photographers. Thanks Frank for capturing those special moments!!!

Diego is a very talented photographer. My husband and I had individual photo shoots with him. He was clearly very knowledgeable (as the photos showed) but he was able to get the best poses from us both with his easy guidance and demonstrations. He is very skilled in both his instruction and his photography. We didn't realize how much work went into taking great photos. Diego made this possible!

Holland is one of the best photographers around. That's coming from a photographer :-) I see Holland as myself of starting a Nonprofit Organization for children who want to learn photography. I chose Holland Reid Photography (HRP) to do my headshots out of all the photographers I could choose. She won't let you down :-)

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!

First and foremost, I'd like to state that there truly are no words for how amazing Linda is!! She is such a kind, patient, and down-to-earth person who is a pleasure to work with. She is exactly the type of photographer you want to have on any momentous occasion or special day. Booking with Linda starts with having a conversation before hand regarding the type of event, where you would like the photographs to happen and a little insight into your personality. My family and I chose Piedmont Park to get my medical school graduation pictures done and we have never been very comfortable with coming up with the unique poses required for professional pictures. Linda was so patient and made us feel so comfortable. She had so many creative ideas and poses for us that made for a mixture of beautiful and sillyy photos that my family and I will cherish for years. She edited and processed my pictures within a few days (Ive waited weeks to receive professional photos from other photographers in the past so Linda's turn around time is incredible)!!! She gave me full access to them by making a Shutterfly account and sending the link to my email. This account allowed me to purchase pictures through Shutterfly or download them onto my computer so I could choose my own picture developing company. She truly loves what she does and it is reflected in her passion for the art of photography and the quality of work she produces. She is professional and easy going which are some of the best qualities you want in your photographer, particularly on stressful days. Thank you Linda for taking such beautiful photos that I am so proud to put on display in my home and show my family and friends via social media! I highly recommend anyone and everyone to book Linda/LC Photography for their special event or occasion. You will not be disappointed!! Ive attached just a small fraction of the beautiful photos she took as proof!

Thankful for Keira's flexibility and willingness to travel to our home for newborn photos of my little girl. Her bubbly and energetic personality combined with her open mindedness for shots resulted in some amazing and artistic photographs. Although she may be relatively new to the field, she is beyond talented in her ability to pose and capture as well as her editing style. Far better style than I have seen from photographers with decades of experience. Thanks Keira Davis!!

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.

Mr. Ackerson was wonderful to work with. Very easy going and professional. He had the patience of a saint with my rambunctious 2 year old son. We had a mixed family/child/maternity shoot, and we got to all the poses I wanted to try. He was very accommodating. I received the photos within a week of of photo shoot. My family is looking forward to working with him again!

We had an amazing experience with Wally Bradley Photography. He was kind, professional, patient and prepared. We were getting photos done for a model comp card. I have zero experience with this. Wally guided us the entire way. He provided a professional top notched dressing room with everything you may need including personal props. We got some amazing shots. He knew exactly what we were looking for and he delivered in spades! I plan on using him for our family photos in the very near future. If you are looking for experience, professionalism, attention to detail, patients, and fair pricing you can't go wrong with Wally Bradley Photography.

As a professional wedding coordinator for 11+ years I have had a lot of experience with photographers. Bartee was engaging without being intrusive. He's that perfect fly on the wall secretly capturing moments that would have been lost forever on a camera phone. I was blown away by the raw emotion in the pictures and how expertly he portrayed the mood even in a low light space that can be tricky for other photographers. I would whole heartedly recommend Just Bartee! The rehearsal is a uniquely intimate time during the hustle and bustle of a wedding weekend. Everyone feels the excitement and importance of the moment without the anxiety of onlookers. Having such gorgeous photos of your best friends and family is sure to be a treasure.

I am so happy with the work Will put into our pet/family photos. He arrived on time, was kind enough to stay for a good while so that my cat could warm up to him, made sure he could capture us/her in a variety of settings in our home. Will is very personable, laid back, and made us feel very comfortable in front of the camera. I couldn't be happier with the finished products. We highly recommend him and plan on hiring Will again in the future.

Aaron completed a family photography shoot for me and the pictures turned out great! We did our shoot in the park and Aaron made my children feel really comfortable behind the camera. He even let my five year old son take a few pictures, which he just loved. Anyone who is looking for a great photographer with very reasonable prices should give Aaron Lee Imagery a try. You won't regret it.

Peter is an awesome, highly skilled photographer. He is extremely friendly, professional, and very easy to work with. I've done individual shoots as well as a couples shoot with him. My husband hates getting his picture taken, but Peter made it lots of fun and comfortable for us during our engagement shoot. Peter kept it fun and exciting and had great energy! He knew exactly where to go and how to direct us for each background. Peter also has lots of great ideas for where to do shoots, so even if you don’t know the area very well, Peter can help out big time. We also felt like his pricing was very reasonable and that we got every penny’s worth and then some in every precious moment he captured. We are absolutely thrilled that we chose to go with Peter every time we need photos.

BoldoNbeautiful Visuals did a awesome job and I had the best time getting my maternity pictures taken by him! He simply is great at what he does. I told him I wanted natural outdoor light with a nice background but was unsure where would be best because I am new to the city. He recommended the perfect area and we were able to get a lot of great shots to fit my vision. He has an upbeat personality, and did an amazing job capturing the excitement and love surrounding my little one’s arrival! Contrary to prior experiences, I felt comfortable in front of the camera. I would definitely work with him again in the future, and I recommend him for anyone in the Atlanta area seeking a reputable photographer to capture their special moments.

Jasmine provided a very competitive quote (she was far less expensive than other photographers). The picture quality is acceptable. My only regret is not providing more direction to ensure certain shots were taken (i.e. group shots and family shots). I think Jasmine is a good option if you have time to provide creative direction during the event or shoot.

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.
