Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a photographer during the COVID-19 pandemic?

The best way to set up an appointment or a consultation with a photographer near you during the COVID-19 pandemic is by conducting an online search. Start by scheduling a call with the photographer. If possible, it may be better to use a video call service so that the photographer can get an idea of the site location. Take this opportunity to discuss safety measures you can take during this time, as well as whether it’s safe to complete the project now or simply postpone it.

How can I find out if a photographer is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

Consult your city or state’s government websites, which typically have information on which services are deemed essential during the pandemic. 

For national information, visit CISA’s page on Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19. Here, you can find 16 different types of essential infrastructure sectors that can continue operating unimpeded during the pandemic. But some, not all, jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure.

Do photographers offer remote or virtual services?

Photography happens in person, but photographers may be able to offer other remote services safely during the COVID-19 pandemic. For example, they may be able to offer editing and other post-processing services. 

If you see that a photographer is offering remote services in their profile, contact them and ask what those services include.

Can I use digital payments to pay for wedding and event photography services?

As digital forms of payment and money transfer are becoming more popular, wedding and event photographers are likely to use digital services. These include PayPal, Zelle, Google Pay, Venmo, Square Cash and more. As you search online for local wedding and event photographers, ask them if they accept digital payments and, if so, which ones you can use. And make sure to have a strategy in place for safe social distancing.

Does a photographer need to enter my home?

There are many situations in which a photographer does not need to enter your home. It’s not uncommon for people to prefer to have their pictures taken outdoors. If you're hiring a photographer, maintain safe distances, avoid being in the same room, sanitize all involved surfaces and conduct payment using digital platforms. You can discuss strategies as you complete your search for local photographers.

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.

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.

When should you take newborn photos?

Few styles of portrait photography are as tricky as newborn photos — the unpredictable infant is always in charge! The best way to ensure a successful photo shoot is to work with a local newborn photographer within the first two weeks of the baby’s life. Some photographers even work with hospitals to offer newborn sessions within a day of the baby’s birth. But newborn photographers usually recommend scheduling a shoot during the baby’s first two weeks of life, while the baby is still sleepy and relatively cooperative, especially for posed or studio shots. During this time, babies are easier to swaddle in blankets and dress in hats or headbands, and, because they often nap or nurse, can be staged with various props or be cuddled by their parents. For casual photos, most newborn photographers recommend shooting within the first six weeks of a baby’s life. Lifestyle portrait photography is more flexible and doesn’t require the baby to cooperate with multiple poses or props.

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.
Reviews for Roswell photographers

If you are looking for a portrait photographer for a student portrait, this may not be the best choice. I did not get what I asked for. A good photographer can work with all types of situations and people. Most people are not models and are not accustomed to being photographed. It might have been different if the photographer had better skills in this area. We were quite disappointed with the whole experience.

We had a family of 17 plus 1 for our photographs. We could not have been happier or more pleased with Nicole. She has incredible composition with our family, consisting of parents, children and grandchildren. She took her time and we were not rushed when setting up for the photos. She was very professional not only in her photography, but also with the quality and quantity of her photos. We will definitely be hiring her again in the future. Her photos were amazing. Thank you Nicole.

Lindsay was a pleasure to work with. She did an amazing job of getting the family, including shy one year old, to get comfortable with her for the photo shoot. The family photos turned out wonderful, exactly as we had in mind.

Incredible experience from start to finish. I was in a last minute pinch to find a photographer I could trust to photograph and document an event we were having at Killer Creek Harley. I am blown away by the wonderful results. Not only did he capture it perfectly, he made the photographs feel right at home with our Harley family. I cannot thank you enough, Michael.

Paul was everything we had hoped for and more! He was so pleasant with all of the guests. The running joke with all of our guests and family members was that we need Paul for every event! He photographed my sister's Bridal Shower and captured every moment perfectly. What really stood out for me when finding Paul and looking at his website was that everyone looked so happy in all of his photos, and I thought "Wow! This guy knows how to capture happiness!". He completely lived up to this expectation. Not only was he so enjoyable at the event, but the turn around for photos was astonishing! Within 24 hours! The photos were spectacular! So bright! So many beautiful moments that were captured. I shared what moments would be most important to me (family photos, bridal party, etc.) and Paul met every one of those wishes. I will not be using any other photographer in the Atlanta area other than Paul. Paul, it was a true joy getting to know you! My sister and I adored the photos and look forward to having you at another event! - Catie

The photo shoot with Lindsey was not what I had imagined in my mind, instead it was much for free flowing and artistic. Her eye for using nature in the photos is amazing and the outdoor shots are my favorite. I would definitely use Lindsey again.

Kevin was great! Our 50th anniversary party was even more perfect because he captured it on film and I didn't have to worry about capturing memories. Great photos - easy with the guests, and prompt delivery of photos. Would highly recommend.

This review has been a long time coming. I can not truly express how pleased I was with every aspect of our photo shoot. Paul was responsive, and very agile in his ability to support a last minute change on our part. Our photo shoot included nine people and Paul not only suggested great poses, but understood our desires too. Best of all, the two children found him entertaining. His turn around time on the finished product was excellent, and he did not piece meal the photos. Not only would I highly recommend his services, we will book him for any photographic needs we have in the future. Just an excellent job!!!!

Charles was very quick to respond, and gave us an appointment for a photo shoot on the same day. When we arrived at the outdoor spot, it was raining! So we waited about 20 minutes for the rain to clear, and then proceeded with the photo shoot. Charles took many great pictures, and returned them to me with editing complete within 24 hrs. I will definitely call him again.

Brandon was professional, friendly, reasonably priced, and very easy to work with. He was more than willing to accommodate our various picture needs. He arrived right on time and his easy-going personality put us all at ease. Having Brandon as our family portrait photographer was a wonderful experience. I would highly recommend using him for any of your photography needs!

Unfortunately was not the positive experience hoped for, as Keira was not able to make it to photograph my engagement, due to the weather. This of course made it difficult for me to find a photographer at that moment. However, she has apologized and has promised to refund my deposit. She seems to be very passionate about her career and her work seems to show she'll be successful. Her husband provided a positive experience by the effort he put in to support her. The original message I received from her saying what's pictured, which is incorrect, was setup as an automated message. The customer service was adequate, as her photography seems quite nice it was disappointing that this situation occurred.

Rachel did a great job on our family photos. We used an old park down the road from my house in roswell for the location. Rachel had never been there before and still was able to find lots of little locations at that site for us. She allowed us to just be ourselves, so we didn’t appear stiff in the photos. Will definitely use her again, especially for such a great price!

Jasmine did an absolutely amazing job on our wedding! Having just moved here from another state I had really struggled to find a photographer that kind of understood my quirky questions and put my mind at ease about my concerns with my own body in photos and Jasmine really stepped up and answered any and all of my questions and concerns with a great sense of urgency. She was super flexible throughout the whole process from shopping around to day off. My husband and I are both fairly awkward people and she did such a great job with the awkwardness of posing us and getting candida I was extremely pleased. I would and have recommended her ten fold to anyone looking for a photographer with a great personality, great price, professional to the fullest, and showed us genuinely great work. I cannot wait to see my full album and have been nothing but happy with my experience with jasmine! Will post photos once I get my album back but so excited to share with everyone!

My husband needed a few headshots for work. Charles did an incredible job on short notice and the photos are expensively done and airbrushed to make my husband look young and handsome. Highly recommend!

Jerry and Maria took some beautiful photos of my family and got them back to us very promptly! And they are both so very nice!!! For me, this was probably more of a learning experience. I wasn't sure if I should have planned the spots, poses and number of photos as I have not really done this before. I probably should have asked for more of their assistance with that, I think, because I was hoping for more different and varied shots but truthfully it was like herding cats at one point. :)
