Cory did a fantastic job with my family! We included our puppy in our family photos and Cory went above and beyond to make sure we got some great shots! She was patient and flexible. She met us at our desired location, made sure we had plenty of pictures taken, and was flexible about payment options. She was phenomenal. We can't wait to use Cory as our family photographer as we continue to grow our little family!

Couldn't be more pleased with the quality and professionalism of ​this team of photographers. They have such an amazing talent for capturing great scenes which is exactly what we asked for and they provided us with first class service. Not only would we recommend them, we plan to use them again for another project. Looking forward to working with Rick and Chrissy again.

Tiffany has done our family photographs for years. Her work never disappoints! The pictures are crisp, vibrant, and truly capture the beauty of the moment. I love how the pictures are not posed, but more realistic and lively! I would recommend her for any photography endeavor!

Everything about my session was amazing! Vanessa is an amazing photographer and makes you feel 100% comfortable and beautiful during the session! Amazing studio atmosphere, phenomenal photographer who delivers incredible results! I'm beyond happy with my senior pictures. They weren't typical, but they were amazingly different and unique! And she was willing to try new things and to be creative! Which is just what I wanted! I would definitely recommend and reuse Vanessa VonRouge's photography skills!

Verified review

Kara was my lady knight in shining armor. The photographer for my wedding backed out two weeks prior to the big day, and I was totally panicked. I was put in touch with Kara by a mutual friend. She made it clear that, though she hadn't done a wedding before, she was willing to do the research and put in the time to make it happen for me at an incredibly reasonable price. Kara was so sweet from the beginning and so much fun to work with. I'm in love with my photos and will definitely be going back to her in the future.

I thoroughly enjoy my experience working with Paz photography! I was looking for a photographer to shoot some professional shots for my re-designed website for my business and I was overly impressed with her work. I had a concept of what I wanted to do but Briana went above and beyond to turn my concept into reality. She was prepared for the shoot, very knowledgeable in the various camera angles and lighting to catch the perfect shots. Thank you again for helping to make my business a success and I will definitely use Paz photography in the future.

We still treasure the family photos from our session with Jamie. She really has a gift not only for location suggestions but also for capturing personalities in the photos. The individual shots of my children are gems! We had 8 people in our group and love the group shots, too!

Sally Wolf is not only an amazing person, but a professional that takes pride in her work. She took great photos of my family and my wife in her maternity dress. She even took suggestions on poses to use from our seven year old, which turned out to be phenomenal ideals. She was very punctual, responsive, and is worth every penny. We will definitely use her again for our infant pictures and hope to retain her as our family photographer for years to come. Thanks Sally and we cannot wait to see the pictures!

Jon was extremely helpful and full of creative ideas when I asked him to come down and take some pics for the new recording studio down here in North Pacific Beach. Sometimes it can be difficult to find a photographer with his sort of attention to detail. Jon's ability to grasp the concept of what I was going for was a huge plus and I recommend him to anyone looking for a photographer with a new, unique perspective and vision for whatever situation you maybe looking to capture.

Dana did an amazing job on our first family photos! There's so many good ones, I don't know which ones to choose to hang. He also got the pictures back to us on the day he said he would. He gave us a few sneak peaks to excite us during the wait! I would recommend his artistic work to anyone!! Love our photos ♥️

    Nicki was fantastic! She was very responsive to messages and flexible with my hectic schedule. The session with her was super fun and comfortable. She was easy to talk to and my 1.5 year old clicked with her right away! My daughter will never sit still for pictures, but with Nicki she was giggling and having a blast getting her picture taken. I would highly recommend Nicki and will continue requesting her services for our family photography needs 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.
