Ivan took family photos of us at an outdoor shoot a few weeks ago. We really enjoyed working with him; he was great with my children and put us all at ease. He was extremely professional and had scouted the park location for good spots prior to our arrival. He was really directive and the results were AMAZING! We love the pictures. I urge you to hire Ivan, he's awesome!

Valerie was an amazing photographer/woman. She was so helpful at the beginning before we even booked her - she explained what she felt was a great timeline for the day of and put me at ease. I went with a list of questions, and she addressed every question except for 1 before I even had a chance to ask them. She required a reasonable down payment and allows you to break up the rest of the bill into payments if you would. Because her pricing was so great I opted to just give her Cash on the day of the service. Afterward the contract was signed she left me alone. Which was the best thing ever. She always responded timely if I had any questions. She was a great support to have - without needing to dictate what she wanted. She definitely provided me the guidence I needed. The day of she was on time and ready to work. My family can be hard sometimes - she smiled and was extremely professional. She was exactly what I needed to keep the wedding party in line and on schedule. If she was not assertive we would still be taking pictures today a month and a half later. She was in great communication with our DJ the day of to help coordinate all the event timelines so she was ready to snap pictures of everything. The wedding was on a Saturday in August which is an extremely busy time for photographers and she had all the pictures ready to view online the Wednesday following the wedding. She made a beautiful slideshow and sent the link right away. It was easy to share with everyone and anyone can order prints right from there. We have not ordered any prints yet - we can not decide which ones we want to get because there are so many phenomenal ones. Her packages are at a great value and for a reasonable amount more she gives an edited disc of all the pictures. When we have any events in the future we will definitely call Valerie first! I really can not describe how happy we are with all the process and service provided.

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!

We hired The DJ's Mic, for a 40th birthday. Decided to go with the full package deal. Lights, sound, a photographer, and Photobooth. This was our first photobooth experience, and I must say the kids had loads if fun. The music was a nice blend of anything that you would typically find on the radio, with some older stuff thrown in for old timers like myself. I do want to apologize to "Mike" our DJ. The kids would not leave him alone. However he was very patient with them and played all of there songs. Over all I would recommend. We paid $2400 for a DJ, Photography, A photobooth, and the DJ. A great price!

We had such a blast with Kristen at our outdoor family shoot! My little one is very energetic and I knew we couldn’t do a formal photo shoot... and I am SO glad we found Kristen! From day one she’s been very professional and personable, and was clear and helpful with suggestions and quick communications prior to our time together. I had some general ideas about what I was looking for, but she helped find the perfect setting and adapted the full session around what we wanted. My son got through over an hour session with smiles and laughter, mainly because Kristen knew how to capture my family at its best. I am so happy with the sweet pictures she took, and cannot wait to come back to her to help capture other special memories!

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.

I had a project in mind - I wanted to have a glamorous photoshoot for my wife as a birthday gift. I needed a photographer to pull this off. A Google search led me to Thumbtack and I put in a quote and description of what I wanted. I received only one response - Chuck. Chuck was professional and very interested in making the shoot and final pictures what I had desired. However, after my initial brainwave of the photoshoot I was lost for ideas. Chuck asked the right questions to lead me in the right direction Come the day of the shoot, I was expecting a photographer with a couple of cameras and maybe a few accessories but Chuck arrived at my house with a full studio! He set up everything and the shoot went ahead. My wife was speechless and had so much fun! The shoot took about 3 hours or so The pictures at the end of the shoot were brilliant and excellent. Overall, Chuck went above and beyond - he was on time, met all his deadlines, communication was excellent and he was very understanding and patient despite the rigors we put him through. I highly recommend Chuck for your photography work.

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!

Trevor and his assistant arrived early to checkout our wedding reception venue and they took some beautiful pictures before the guests started arriving. They took a lot of nice, candid photos, which was what I had wanted!! His pictures of my husband and I in the garden are very nice and we enjoyed the photo session. I wished I had remembered to ask Trevor for some family photos... I completely forgot to ask for them in the commotion of the reception and entertaining the guests. Just a few pictures of us with our family and perhaps another group photo with all the guests would have made it even more complete!

Dennise is an amazing photographer. This was the first time we were taking professional pictures with our dogs so we were a little nervous of what to expect with them, but Dennise managed it awesome. Dennise even brought them a toy that kept them attentive during the photo shoot and gave it to our dogs as a gift after! So nice. She found amazing spots to take our family pictures, and after we saw the final photos, we loved every single one of them. Definitely recommend her.

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.
