After talking with several photographers, he was the only ONE I liked. His professionalism is unlike any other - prompt with responses and super creative. He was patient but professional, giving us tips throughout the event to make sure the pictures came out great. He clearly is very good at his job, a great eye for unique shots. Made sure to get the traditional pictures we were looking for as well.

Danielle did my babyshower on 2/27/16 and was the most pleasant and wonderful photographer to work with. I have no complaints at all. She met all my expectations and did a wonderful job. It was so beautiful to look at the pictures and be happy with the results. I would definitely recommend her to anyone and hire her for any of my events or even private family photos again!

I am fortunate to know several successful photographers in the Indianapolis area that have always exceeded expectations for our family photos. When I realized our entire family of 12 would be in Kansas City this fall, I started hunting for an artist with an eye for natural light, a varied portfolio, experience with large families and consistency in the final product. I must say, the bar was set high and Sharyl jumped over it with ease. :) She communicated clearly when posing our unruly posse and had the patience of Job with our combined six children. Not only did she masterfully snap gorgeous photos of our group, she delivered the final product in two days. Two. That is some miraculous turn around and hard work. I would highly recommend Laughter Loves Photography to anyone looking for a professional product with a personal experience.

We had a blast gathering for some awkward "family" photos with our team of co workers. Alexsandra captured the spirit of our silliness with the utmost professionalism. She worked with us from day one, sharing ideas and ensuring our vision was met, and luckily on only a couple weeks notice. We were so grateful! It really helped that she was just as excited as we were to go through with this off the wall photo shoot. We can't wait to see the final images becasue we are pretty sure she is going to deliver exactly what we are looking for. I highly recommend LoudRock Studio for all your photography needs. She is truly a versatile artist.

When looking for a photographer you don't want to just pick someone who is good at taking pictures. You want someone who captures relationship, meaning, memories, and emotions. I often stare at my wall of photos and marvel at my sweet daughter and husband. Kevin has truly captured the magic of our family together and the photos I have will be cherished for a lifetime. I am so thankful I have found kevin as our photographer! I definitely recommend Kevin Keith photography!

I am a Realtor & this was my first time using Ron's services, so I didn't know what to expect. I was more than pleased...Ron was on time, did what he said he would do. Spent lot's of time taking photos of my new listing so they would look great. I had my photos the same day. I would for sure use Ron's services again!

Thomas is amazing! He did the photography for our daughter's first birthday party, which we wanted to be as special as possible. He did a great job at it. Thomas is extremely professional. Right from the beginning to the end of the party, he was very easy to work with and we felt Thomas was a part of our friends and family. The pictures turned out to be so awesome, cute and of excellent quality. He exceeded our expectations capturing all the precious moments, candid pictures and group pictures. We highly recommend Thomas to capture your special moments. We can't wait to have Thomas do more pictures for our family again.

We just hired Matt for our upcoming wedding. We live out of town from where our wedding will be but Matt has been great working with us. He is one of the only photographers I've found that offers "All day coverage" and literally means ALL DAY! He is there for you on your big day and we are so happy we found Jukeboxx Media! I've already recommended him and we will continue too. Trust me, do yourself a favor and check Jukeboxx Media out.

Jim was too kind to us, he let use have an engagement photo shoot because our wedding was an early brunch thing so it wasn't a long wedding so he said would do that for us since short wedding. And he spent a long time with us there. At our wedding, he said he could continue more of our wedding pics when it's cooler like in a few weeks in a different place in the city, more interesting photos in our dress and wedding suit. He offered to take us to a carnival or someplace unique for not just or location photos, something truly unique. We never asked for these extras he just offered them up for no extra because he's awesome. I like him and what he offered us as options allot. I will contact him first if I need a photographer in the future

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.
