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

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!

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.

Kim is very good at getting you comfortable with the camera. I usually don't like getting my picture taken. Kim made me feel comfortable and we had a blast. Kim takes up as much time as needed so you don't feel rushed. She is also good at listening to your ideas and using props and directions. Thank you Kim for the pictures we had a blast and will definitely be doing family portraits soon.

Joseph recently did our family portrait session, and we're so glad we chose him as our photographer! He made the whole process seamless by giving us all of the details in advance, showing up on time, and keeping our 2 small children happy and laughing for over an hour while he worked. Joseph had creative ideas for our session, and we are thrilled with the quality of the finished photos. He captured so many joyful memories that we will cherish for a lifetime. We will definitely use Over Here Photography again!

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.

Will was awesome! Everything about his work was great! Very communicative, was willing to meet up in advance to go over what we were planning and how we wanted it done and it all worked out perfect! I planned a surprise engagement for my fiancé at the time and he helped me plan it all out as well as snapping every moment. He joined the whole party as well for dinner where he still managed to capture so many photos. He also made sure to get pictures with us and every single person who was there. He went over and beyond what I’d imagined to get out of a photographer. What made it even better was that my wife and I still look back at those photos and are extremely satisfied and happy with what we received. I will definitely recommend him to anyone who needs a photographer for a photo shoot for any type of event.

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.

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.
