She created a video documentary on my 'American Journey' and it was a class act! She narrated the story very well, that was in sync with a very high quality video presentation. Came angles, zooming, scene change transitions etc. were done so professionally that I was amazed. I am not an expert in video production or cinematography but her documentary surpassed my expectations. I would highly recommend anyone to contact her for you video or photographic needs. She will listen to your story, and then with her creativity she will produce a great documentary for you.

      Chad is extremely talented but in addition to that he is also a man of integrity. As the leader of a high producing real estate team I am very critical about how our properties are displayed as it pertains to the images that we use in our marketing and I completely trust Chad as he produces the quality that we require. Would highly recommend him to anyone needing professional photographs!

      About

      I am experienced in event and wedding photography, holding a bachelor of fine arts degree in photography from BYU-Idaho. Before moving to Shreveport, I worked professionally as a photo editor for famous wildlife photographer, Thomas D. Mangelsen. I have had work published in Photographers Forum Magazine and images exhibited in the Eastern Idaho Art Museum.

      About

      My photography is of a spontaneous nature. Just as in taking a nature shot, I like to take the photo that is given. Shooting a black wedding, I took shots of the groom getting his hair curled as well as a bridesmaid with her skirt hiked up, adjusting her slip. At another wedding, three of the young flower girls and the ring girl had turned on the microphone and were singing songs. I enjoy shooting youth sports. The expressions and intensity are priceless.

      About

      Hello, My name is Clyde Gosey. I am a freelance photographer, born and raised in Shreveport, Louisiana. For many years, I've tried to find the right career for with amazing unlucky results. Throughout my 10-year adventure, I noticed I always had a camera or some type of video device in my possession. So, I said to my self, "How about becoming a photographer?" I've studied art previously before my epiphany, so I already had some knowledge having an eye for the arts. So, from 2006 - current, I've been obtaining unbelievable knowledge and gaining remarkable experience through my endeavors. I currently am now offering services for weddings (photo/video), social events (photo/video), editorial photography, entertainment, and personal photography. Family portraits are not my specialty but I can perform the job successfully.

      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.
