It was a great experience working with Mark. He was flexible with scheduling, reasonably priced, and most importantly I'm very happy with the head shots. Mark also got the images to me quickly which was helpful for my timeline. I'm not very comfortable in front of the camera, but Mark was easy to work with and interesting to talk with which helped. I have even asked him about doing family photos when the weather gets better.

Ivan was a pleasure to work with and delivered exactly what we wanted. We requested fairly simple photography for our wedding -- ceremony and a couple hours of reception only, no "first look" or anything -- which perhaps might have frustrated a lesser photographer in capturing intimate moments. But all of Ivan's photos were both stunning and meaningful; he has an excellent eye not just for the larger scene but also for the small, special moments between people. On top of it, his rate is EXTREMELY reasonable, considering that his quality of work exceeds that of many other photographers we found who charged MUCH higher. We would happily hire him again!

Very few event photographers in my experience have manages to be everywhere yet unobtrusive. Many of the guests commented to me on his professionalism and his pleasant demeanor. Do hire Frank. You won't be disappointed.

Jeremiah recently photographer our family outdoors at a park near our home. We had a wonderful experience working with Jeremiah and are very pleased with the results! Jeremiah had a tough crowd at first with our 9 month old son, but he was very patient with us and our son. We have had many compliments on our new family portraits and a few people have requested Jeremiah's information. I am so happy we discovered jeremiah. It is such a treasure to have natural light photographs of our son in action exploring nature!

My company and I have had the pleasure of working with David on two events. Both times he exceeded our expectations; this, based off of our experience with previous photographers. David's level of professionalism is reflected through his presence when shooting an event, and in the final product. With this in mind, David Bruno is a fantastic event photographer. He delivers magazine-ready images, that in our case, wind up making it to print. And, ultimately, he has helped us create a portfolio of beautiful, head-on + candid images, that showcase everything our company is made of. For this, we are infinitely grateful.

Kristen took photos for my daughter's first birthday as well as some family pictures and did an absolutely fabulous job! From the initial communication (including being available to take photos within the same week!), to the idea of where to take the pictures, to painting letters to match her birthday color scheme....I was impressed before even meeting her! And she definitely didn't disappoint. She was timely, professional, and easy going which made it a very comfortable experience. Not to mention that my daughter's pictures came out fantastic! We left with a flash drive and will be able to have gorgeous pictures for her party. We definitely plan to use Kristen again as we encounter more family milestones!

I had just had our baby girl when I reached out to Jim to have him do her newborn photos, as well as update our family photos to include our newest addition. It was December and as busy as everyone was with the holidays, Jim responded quickly to my inquiry and up until our session with the utmost attention. His assessment of what I saw as my vision was thorough and on point in his delivery. He arrived on time, and most importantly did not rush the session. I have three year old twins (and a dog) and he was extremely patient with them, and worked with their attention spans well. My husband and I are impressed and cannot say enough about the quality of the photos. I also love the idea of paying for the digital images and being able to do what I want with them, and he didn't pressure us to buy frames and print packages like the chain photography stores we have been to in the past. Jim is a true artist and a pleasure to work with! We have found our family photographer for here on out, and are already planning to have him photograph the Christening.

With Chuck Nacke, you will experience a true professional from your first contact through the completion of your photos. Most importantly, you will find that he is a superb photographer, lighting carefully and well, and ensuring that you have numerous excellent photos among which to choose your portrait. I cannot say enough about my experience with Chuck. If he costs a bit more than the other photographers, do not hesitate, his product is well worth it. For a few more details about the experience, Chuck came to my home, set up his gear and backdrops, and allowed me several wardrobe changes. We also did some shots outside and with my puppy Gretel. So besides checking that professional box, I have a wonderful shot of me and my dog that I will treasure for the rest of my life. Oh, and the icing on the cake is that Chuck is a fascinating guy with fantastic life stories. You will feel like a mini-celebrity and really enjoy your time with him.

Tony was great to work with! We had a small wedding with close friends and family at Boston City Hall, followed by a luncheon after. He helped plan things out in advance, showed up early, had great ideas for photos, and was low-key and relaxing to shoot with. He was also very respectful of us wanting privacy because of an unusual situation, and agreed not to include us in online portfolios. We considered several photographers, and are really glad we went with Tony. I'd definitely recommend him, and we'd certainly work with him again if we have occasion to. Thanks!

Arlene was really sweet and responsive. She arrived at the photoshoot session early and got the pictures done on the same day. She got two professional cameras which helped a lot in capturing those shots. Overall, it was a good experience.

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.
