Darrell and Cindy photographed our 10/17/15 wedding. They arrived on time setup, looked at the layout and hit the ground running. The pictures truly captured my day as it unfolded as if viewing it from a storybook. They were a very pleasant couple to work with and they knew exactly what to shoot and how without hesitation. They were quick getting thru the actual group poses and were very thorough doing so at the same time. The photos took me right back to the wedding day and I smiled thru each and every picture. Since we had no videogragher, it was good for me the bride, to see beginning of the ceremony thru the eyes of the photographers. DHolloway is a wonderful way to go for photos of any kind. You will not regret your choice and for any future photographs that I may need they will be the very first people that I will call. Thank you Darrell and Cindy for capturing the happiness that was felt that whole day. I cannot thank you two enough. James and Tracy

Absolute Entertainment and photography were a HUGE part of our special day and we are so thankful to have worked with such great people!! From the uplighting, to both wonderful photographers David and Kim, to the awesome photo booth that kept all of our family and guests entertained, everything was a hit for our wedding night!! HUGE thanks to Rick also for working with me (the bride) on creating a package that would work for us in our budget and give us everything we could have wanted! And special thanks to our photographers for braving out the freezing cold weather and snow flurries for some outdoor pictures! I 10 out of 10 recommend Absolute Entertainment for anyone’s wedding needs!! Thank you all so much again!

From the moment Allen and I first connected, I could tell he was professional, dedicated, and committed to capturing all my ideas for our family photo shoot, and his passion for his work was also very apparent. Allen and I first spoke by phone to discuss ideas, and he followed up with me to confirm our plans as our date grew closer. Our family of three had limited dates for the shoot and I wanted an outdoor session, so Allen was kind enough to not only monitor the weather very closely, but he also provided us with two dates in case the first one got rained out. It was very considerate of him to dedicate two weekend evenings to a family photo shoot! When the date arrived, Allen was very prepared and very patient as we arrived later than planned. He had some great ideas in mind since we were shooting at several locations downtown, so it was an adventure that lasted all evening! Allen worked so well with our 5 year old to keep her engaged and he laughed along with the rest of us as she played, ran, and sometimes even posed for pictures! As we ventured around downtown to the different locations, we found a few unplanned areas and shot there also. I had requested both candid and posed photos, and Allen did a wonderful job capturing pretty much every single moment throughout the evening! He had his camera ready at all times and it was such a joy to see our photo gallery with all the moments he captured. The gallery was ready for us to review by the next morning and even included a few retouched photos just to give us an idea of what they would look like. We were given over 500 shots to chose from! We will receive all of them in downloadable format, 20 of them which we chose will be retouched, and I will be using Allen's photo lab for prints as he does not inflate the price like many photographers do. If you're looking for a true professional that is sincerely and passionately working to meet his client's needs, then please choose Allen as your photographer. His customer service is outstanding, his pricing is reasonable, his skills and creativity are unprecedented, and he is such a joy to work with!

Nathan was very professional and easy to work with. He is a talented photographer who delivered just what we needed for our publication. In addition to submitting great photographs, we were impressed that he went the extra mile by a) meeting with the subject in advance of the photo shoot, and b) being willing to turn the photo shoot (scheduled for one day) into a two-day shoot due to a rain delay. Also, Nathan is easy-going and was good about keeping us up-to-date on the status of the project.

He's a professional photographers. Who came up to my city to do a photo shoot with me for my website. He shoot "tasteful" photos. He'll make sure your relax and comfortable. He'll make sure if you lack experience on taking good photos, he'll give you direction while working with him. He'll talk to you bring out his sense of humor and style. To make sure you'll come out with great photos. His prices are very reasonable. Especially for models. Also love the clarity of the photos he shoot of me. My photos usually be lacking good clarity. He does great work. You won't be disappointed. I've work with alot of photographers. I choose to go back to him soon as his back in my city.

Michael was an awesome photographer, and his services are out of this world!! He has done our wedding and just recently our family photos and let me tell you with his prices nobody can beat him. We live in Cincinnati and he is out of Louisville, we thought there might be a problem with travel for him but he will definitely go out of his way to make what you want happen. He will be our Photographer for life!

Charity is an excellent photographer with an eye toward special relationships. She is very personable and reflects her heart in her work. You know, there are few people in this world that have true passion for what they do, but Charity is one of them. I have had the pleasure of working with Hedges Photography on many occasions and am always thrilled with the results. Hire her - you won't be disappointed!

Family portraits with three boys 8 and under. I am sure I'm not the only one who dreads the process of family pictures with young children. It's a lot of work, organizing , and coordinating. I am adventurous and decided outside pictures would be fun. Let's throw in weather to add some excitement. After getting everyone dressed and ready we were all done. We showed up at a park setting in the spring time hoping for pretty scenery. The sun was out. Boys were acting like boys. The scenery was not what I hoped for. It still looked a lot like winter. Here is what went awesome. Michelle was on it. She was relaxed. The pictures turned out awesome. Michelle did a great job of keeping boys attention and capturing planned photos but more importantly capturing their personalities and candid moments. Love my Family Pictures.

    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.
