I needed some business headshots done in a short timeframe.. While searching for photographers in the area, I came across Thumbtack and put in a request for proposals. Dan's response came in within minutes. We exchanged a few emails to discuss what I was looking and for and he shot back with some suggestions. We schedule to meet the next day and I was pleased with the enormous amount of time that he devoted to taking a multitude of pictures with different backgrounds/settings. I couldn't be more pleased with the results and the entire experince was a breeze. Dan's service was professional, very competitive and he was very easy to work with. I would absolutely use him again for future photography needs.

I had an excellent experience with Josh Tortuga. First of all, he was early to the photoshoot. You would not have to worry about the photographer being late to your photoshoot/event. He acted very professional while taking pictures, and was very respectful. The pictures were top notch. They were delivered to me within a day of the pictures being taken. It was impressive on how quickly the photos were delivered. Overall, I would definitely recommend this photographer to other people.

Travis did our wedding video last June and we were so pleased with the wonderfully edited Highlight Reel. It perfectly captured everything that we were hoping. We watch it all the time and have shown it to pretty much anyone who will watch! Travis was professional and quiet, we hardly knew he was there (and he was everywhere!), he worked very well with our photographer, even though they met for the first time on our wedding day. We are so grateful for the work Travis did, and hope to include him as our family expands!

Dave has a great eye for photography. Our family always enjoys doing a photo shoot. Dave is always on time and has great ideas for photo shoots. Dave's creativity shines through in the final product. If asked if I would recommend Dave for a photographer, I'd say absolutely. When looking at the quality of work for the price u get more than your money's worth, and this day and age that is hard to find. Dave takes his time to ensure the final product is perfection and the customer is happy.

I will be the first to admit I was skeptical of wedding photographers. After researching numerous photographers my wife and I decided on Nafees, we couldn't be happier! He was professional, prompt, affordable and actually took great photos-something all our guests appreciated! The quality of the pictures were so good I actually had him come back to take pictures of my cars..

We've had Amanda take family photos, pregnancy announcements, maternity, newborn, and milestone photos and they have all turned out amazing. She has captured so many great photos of our growing family. She's great to work with and willing to listen to your own photo ideas as well! I would recommend her to anyone looking for a more personalized photo session!

About

I would consider my work as my outlook in life. I find the world as a beautiful place with so many places to explore and so many things to be discovered. When I take a photo, I get this adrenalin rush. I feel like once that photo has been taken, that marks a permanent time in your life that you'll remember. Even if it's just a flower or a leaf, it marks that moment and makes it still. I believe photos speak more than words sometimes, and one photo can tell a whole story and say a thousand words. I have loved photography since I was 5 years old, when my grandmother got me my very first camera. Since then, I haven't put a camera down. Photography is my life, and it speaks for me.

About

I am the best person to take photos for every event like weddings, graduations, family photos, and plenty of other things.

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.
