My experience with Elmo Laing was a powerful trigger of personal memory---from light, to set-up, to processing. By all accounts, he is a meticulous craftsman. Through his eyes and indelible images of my party guests, I am still reliving this momentous occasion ---my 60th birthday celebration. In photograph after photograph, Elmo captured every mood and motion of the affair. He documented the dancing, the band, the striking group portraits, the cake, the room decorum, and of course--ME. His photography has played an important role of constructing memory because the stories leap from their stills. His images are stimulants for remembering---happy lives, families and friends, and what & how we celebrate. I hover over these images! That’s what fantastic photographers do….they show the environment, they show what they saw and they work to compose the best for YOU. That is exactly what Elmo Laing produced for me. Oh, wait a minute, did I mentioned that he is patient, polite, and precise with posing & positioning—a good photographer. Thank you, Elmo for your artistry, storytelling and technical ability.

THIS IS THE PHOTOGRAPHER OF THE DECADE! I come from a huge family and I have been to a lot of weddings and also worked with a lot of photographers in the past. Gabe by far has been the absolute best of the best! He was prompt, he was professional, and he was witty and charismatic all at the same time. Even when photos weren't being taken, he had us all smiling ear to ear. By the end of the night I had a few family members asking for his business card! Loved loved loved him!

He came to my house to do some portrait-type photography. I appreciated that Joe was relaxed and friendly and didn't seem rushed. I got the photos back from him very quickly. He was helpful in suggesting good backgrounds as well. I was very pleased with the end result. I think he'd make a great family photographer also.

Joshua is one of the best photographers I've ever met. From the beginning of my search for a photographer, Joshua's work and professionalism stood out among the others. While I needed headshots, I also wanted something different, something other than the generic canned ones we've all grown accustomed to seeing. I wanted something casual and spontaneous but certainly not a selfie. As soon as I saw Joshua's portfolio, I knew he was the right one for me. This conviction was confirmed even before I met him in person. Joshua was forthright and proactive in laying out the logistics of what to expect in advance of our appointment. The day of the shoot, he arrived ahead of schedule and allowed enough time to talk with me about his style, his work, and listen to what I wanted and expected. Once the camera started rolling, he made me feel comfortable and at ease and gave me step by step directions of where he wanted me, and what he wanted me to do. I didn't feel like I was posing but stood and acted like I normally do. This gives a much more natural, effective, and stand-out photograph, and I am very pleased with the results. Joshua is friendly, personable, highly skilled at his trade, and very conscientious. He's a consummate professional and has very reasonable rates. I highly recommend Joshua and encourage you to take the time to familiarize yourself with his work. Next time you need a photographer, you now know who to call.

Studio Pri is amazing! We hired Studio Pri off of Thumbtack and have absolutely no regrets in our decision since there are so many photographers out here! We also used them for our engagement photos which turned out beautifully! Priscilla and her team are easy going and very personal. They make you feel comfortable taking photos since most of us aren't used to it! Priscilla was very responsive to emails and got back to me within 1 day. They had our wedding photos and engagement photos ready for us within weeks! We are amazed at how good we looked in them and would definitely used their services again. Thanks so much for capturing all the amazing moments at our wedding :D

Beyond impressed with Tina's incredible talent and flawless ability behind the lens. She spends careful time and does not make you feel rushed in front of the camera. She goes the extra mile to ensure you are most comfortable at all times. She was also one of the nicest, most friendly, energetic and trustworthy photographers I've worked with! I am thrilled with the final product and her creative touch added to my port.

We were SO thankful to find Monumental Arts and K on such short notice - we had our wedding in a museum in Alexandria and our friend, an amateur photographer, fell through just 2 weeks before our February 21st wedding - I was so scared because the wedding photos are SO important to me, I even still have my parents album and their wedding picture at home! He met with us and we discussed our wedding plans, laid out our timeline, and he showed me the most beautiful wedding albums and enlargements from weddings he photographed before - my fiancé even liked them! We decided right then and there Even though we were just having a shorter wedding, nothing all day, we still went with his more expensive collection (I think it was the Sapphire Collection) because we knew we would be getting an album and wanted two photographers. He showed up on the wedding day and walked us through everything we asked for - even suggesting some outdoor pictures I didn't expect to get because the weather turned out beautiful!! Plus, he stayed an extra 30 minutes after things starting running behind, which was so nice of him. We are so thankful for his work and professionalism! We met with him to discuss the photos we want in our album and to order enlargements, and he made it so easy to do everything. I have two other friends getting married this year in Northern Virginia, and we've definitely recommended K and his team to them!

He was just absolutely amazing! His pictures are even more amazing! He asked ahead of time what rules we had and how he can be respectful of the venue. He captured exactly what I wanted him to capture with little direction from me. One thing I liked most about him was the booking, he wasn't too pushy like the other photographers I talked to and I didn't feel like he was nickel and dime-ing me like the other photographers. I hope if I have an event in the future that he will be available to come photograph it! Thank you Greg!

Julie did a in-home newborn/family photo session for us and she made it so enjoyable! She is great with guiding you what to do through each photo and she’s not afraid to tell you where to move, or what to look at. Previous photographers weren’t as assertive and made it very difficult for us to know what to do. Our pictures turned out amazing! If you use her you won’t be disappointed!

Winstead is an outstanding photographer! This was my very first photo shoot and he prepared me for it exceptionally! He recommended the type of attire I should bring, he recommended how to pose, which stances to make and when! In the end, the pictures looked prolific! Crazy part is, you get so much outstanding service and his price is the most competitive out of all the other thumbtack photographers recommended to me! Save yourself the hassle and stress--hire Winstead and you'll be glad you took this recommendation! Be blessed!

We had an exceptional experience with Little Palm! We are so happy with the photos Talah took and our experience working with her. I was worried that it would be difficult to capture our son smiling (since he's a tween and was not enthusiastic about getting family pictures taken), but Talah worked hard to develop a good rapport with him and got some fantastic shots that captured his true personality and many shots of him with a bright smile. If you are looking for someone who will take a mix of traditional and artistic shots and has an outstanding eye for photo composition, look no further. We looked at several photographers before settling on Little Palm, and we are so happy with our decision! Take a look at her pictures compared to others, and there is no comparison.

We hired Kelly to be our photographer at our wedding. We hired her because of the quality of work we saw in her portfolio and because of how excellent she was to work with. She is fast to respond, extremely knowledgable, and (most importantly) one of the best photographers around. Our pictures came out exactly how we wanted them. She took beautiful shots that captured everything from the scenery to the special moments of us saying I do. She was very comfortable to work with and knew exactly what we wanted. Before our shoot, we had a Skype call and she went over our questions and helped us find what we wanted for our shoot. I have only fantastic things to say about Kelly. I would highly recommend her to anyone needing a great photographer.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

Where is the best place to take baby pictures?

Baby pictures are among the most popular types of portrait photography, and most newborn photographers are well versed in the best places to take baby pictures in their local areas. Some newborn photographers will come to the hospital to shoot the baby within a day or two of birth, while others have set up their studios to accommodate the needs of infants. Some parents prefer to have the newborn photographer come to their home or travel to a favorite park or other outdoor location. Like any portrait photography, the best place to take baby pictures is the place you like best and that will yield the types of photos you want of your baby, whether that’s posed and carefully lit studio portraits or spontaneous, casual photos at home. Work with a local newborn photographer to find a safe, calm location with great lighting and some privacy for your family.

How much does baby photography cost?

Portrait photography provides parents with lasting images of the first whirlwind months of a newborn’s life. The cost varies based on several factors, including the length and location of the session, the number of photos provided, and the amount of editing and retouching the photographer does. The national average cost for baby photos is $150-$200. Some baby photographers charge by the number of photos provided, typically ranging from an average of $299 for 20 high-resolution edited photos, to an average of $399 for 35 photos, to $499 for all of the images taken in a single session. Props and location affect the cost, too; an elaborate studio shoot with props and professional lighting may increase the cost to $600-$700 for 20-50 photos. Adding a second location or asking the photographer to travel can add $70-$250 to the cost of the session. Photographers may also charge extra fees for providing additional photos and DVDs, scheduling weekend sessions, and shooting siblings. Expect to pay at least a $50 deposit when you book a portrait photography session.

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.
