We received a free 30 minute session as a baby shower gift. I contacted Felisha to schedule and I ended up having to ask her to reschedule a couple of times due the illness of a family member. When we finally were able to nail down a date, I half figured she was ready to get it out of the way since I kept rescheduling and it was a "free" session. Just the opposite! She took her time ensuring that she got just the shot she wanted each time. She took family photos and pictures of both girls together and separate. We walked all around the park that we had met at and took photos in several different locations. She got several of our photos to us later that day, and all within the next day or so. She was fun, friendly, and extremely easy to work with! I would recommend her to anyone! Could not have been happier!

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.

Ashton was wonderful during my family pictures! Her ideas were well thought out and despite having a large and crazy family, she was able to direct us into poses that looked natural and showed how close we are as a family. She was also flexible when our family session turned into a surprise pregnancy reveal and was the first to capture how excited we were to welcome a little McKnight to the family. Awesome budding photography you'll be sorry if you don't book a session with her.

I always love working with Courtney! She listens to her client's wishes and strives to make the wish a reality. She has not dissapointed me with any photos she has taken of myself or my family. She is very flexiable and has very reasonable prices. I plan to have her do photos in the future!

Sarah and Rachel are a highly professional powerhouse sister duo. They are creative, innovative photographers who know how to make any occasion fun and get the best possible photos for any occasion. They are great with kids, babies, pets, families---you name it! I have seen their photography of many events and used them for casual portraits and location-based shoots. I can't recommend them highly enough!

Billye is very professional while being caring and understanding at the same time. She had been doing our family photos for over three years and we have never had a bad photo session. She takes the time needed to take care of my entire family, from my young daughters to my cantankerous husband. My husband hates having his picture taken, but will set for Billye. My girls LOVE Billye. Heck, I love Billye. She doesn't make you feel like you are just a number. She listens to your wants, needs and makes it work. She is a rare gem that really cares about her clients. Oh, and her pictures are pretty darn good, too!!! :)

    Kara did family photos for us when our son was home on leave from the Air Force... She captured every special moment and laugh when him and his brother and sister! They were incredible. She is very talented and I can't wait for her to take ours again as soon as he gets to come back home!

    Elizabeth was an absolute pleasure to work with! She was incredibly patient with us as she worked her camera to get perfect shots, often times without us even being aware that she was getting that perfect "pose." I didn't realize how breathtaking they would be until I saw them. Elizabeth really has a great eye for a beautiful shot, and we will treasure the photos. I loved that Elizabeth was able to capture the emotions between us and was willing to work with us as we became more comfortable with being photographed. Also, huge kudos to the turn around time! Once we chose the photos we really liked (which was difficult, because there were many!) she edited the photos lickety split and we had the finished product ready to print. Elizabeth's patience, professionalism, skill, and artistic eye were all deeply appreciated. Her photography is highly recommended and I would certainly hire her again!!

      We were really happy with Alison photographing us for our family pictures! Our pictures turned out great and we were pleased that she was willing to come to our neighborhood for the shoot. She was really quick at sending the proofs to us after the shoot as well. She has outstanding customer service. We were happy she allowed us to have our parents join us for a pictures as well.

      Sydney was both accommodating to our requests and very creative in her approach with our engagement photos. She worked hard to get as many great photos as possible in the short window we had. We couldn't be happier and we're very excited to show our friends and family

        Mariah has taken our family photos on two occasions, and both times I was so impressed with her professionalism and creative photo capturing! Mariah truly makes it easy to get great photographs because she has mastered the balance between giving directions and standing back to capture those natural moments. Her eye for setting and attention to detail truly make her photos amazing! Great photographer, fabulous photos, and excellent pricing. We love Mariah!

        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.
