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

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.

Mikhaela was a dream to work with! I appreciated that she reached out initially in response to my posted request. She was warm and friendly from the start! The photo session was fun and she made me feel comfortable. She also had plenty of good ideas for creative and candid poses. I highly recommend her!

I hired Anthony as my DJ / Photographer. He was very involved in the process, taking into consideration even the smallest of details. He is very caring. Initially, I had hired another DJ, but Iliterally never heard from him - not even once, I just filled out a form. Anthony takes a personal interest in ensuring that your wedding goes very well. He is present and accounted for, so many DJ's just aren't. You fill out a form and then maybe meet with them a week ahead. We met with Anthony early in the process. He made suggestions in keeping mind guests and what keeps them dancing and how to keep the momentum of the party going. In relation to him and his photography skills, that is really what drew me to his website and choosing him as my photographer. His photos are exceptional in quality and he has an eye for candid pictures and capturing the family moments great! He was also very flexible, when I told him that I wanted to have pre-wedding pictures, he adjusted his schedule accordingly. He was also patient in dealing with all of my family members in including them in the pictures and catch that perfect picture. The packages he offers are reasonable for those who have are staying within a budget. I would highly recommend Anthony, as he made our wedding really memorable and beautiful. We had an MJ impersonator hired to come to perform at our wedding and he didn't show. Anthony kept the party going! Even in the disappointment, Anthony reminded me about the important things and to re-focus on that. If you want to hire a run of the mill DJ/photographer who fits the cookie cutter mold, then go ahead and hire someone else. But, if you are interested in having a superior wedding DJ & photographer then call Anthony!!!

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!

E&C Photography does excellent work. They photographed four events for me so far. From Christmas family portraits to my daughter's high school graduation pictures. E&C photography has even recently taken 100s of pictures for a large event featuring several national recording artists. Thank you E&C for capturing the highlights of my family and friends. Keep up the good work!

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.

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 ;)

Daphne was very cooperative and pleasant to work with. She was on time, brought good props and had a variety of suggestions for various poses. She also captured some great shots where she was working with what the family was doing ( not posing for the camera ). She was absolutely fantastic with our two year old, which is the most difficult in our family to capture good photos.

Working with Chelsea has been AMAZING! After a post online looking for a local photographer, she responded immediately. After reviewing her portfolio, my fiance and I decided we would love to use her for our wedding! Chelsea was up front with us that it would be her first wedding shooting, but her work spoke for itself. Her images, eye, and editing were everything we were looking for. She met with me on multiple occasions to go over my desires for the day, a photo check list, and day of needs. We also planned a family shoot prior to the wedding which went over spelndidly. She arrived early, prepared and and in a fantastic mood. She also worked with a novice photographer at our wedding to help her grow her skill set. I can not say enough positive things about working with Chelsea & can't wait for our next shoot!

I had my Maternity and new born pictures taken by Pao Photography. It was amazing to have them outside during the fall and at the comfort of my own home. Very creative outlook on taking pictures and very friendly. Very considerate with the baby as not to overwhelm. I would definitely recommend and use for other family photo shoots.

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.
