Steve is excellent! I've worked with many photographers over the years and he is by far at the top. He is so easy going, easy to work with, and he brings out the personality in you so your photos reflect that! He is patient and goes as long as necessary to get what you need. His work is beautiful, and his post-shoot organization flows easily and is quick to respond. And his pricing is very reasonable, especially juxtaposed to the quality of work he produces. Highly recommend!

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 was without a doubt the most professional photographer I have ever experienced. His sharp eye and keen instinct allowed him to perfectly move the lighting around for phenomenal photos. I will most assuredly go back to him for all my future endeavors in photography. Diego has an affordable price and schedules himself to meet his client’s needs. He has a charming personality and is very understanding and flexible with the people he works with, which directly results in a happier demeanor and more cheerful outlook that shows in the face of the people he takes photos of. I highly recommend him for anything from professional modeling portfolios to casual family photographs.

Big, big fan of Holland Reid Photography. Very professional with great instincts, I'm always interested to see what she is shooting. So many photographers find a bit of success and then don't stray from their path. Holland seems to explore opportunities with each new shoot. I appreciate the variety of fresh perspectives she captures.

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.

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.

Daniel did a shooting for my AirBnB property, and the photos he took are stunning. I'm beyond happy that I chose him because his work would be nearly impossible to top. The photos weren't just great quality, they were also artistic. Daniel went above and beyond for me, making sure I had the perfect shot for every room in the house. The next time I need home photos done, which will be soon because I'm creating an event space, Daniel will be the only photographer I'll call.

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.

Sam has a great future ahead of him! He was the photographer for our daughter's Sweet Sixteen and we are very happy with the work he did! He was responsive to emails, and on the day of the event, he was punctual and made sure to capture all the important moments. He made my daughter very comfortable and was very easy going the whole time. The images he captured were beautiful and we look forward to using him again in the future!

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.
