Mark is a wonderful photographer - I am very camera-shy and am prone to taking cheesy pictures, but he helped make the process comfortable, natural and fun. Pictures turned out great - couldn't be happier! Would absolutely recommend to anyone. Thanks, Mark!

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.

We let 3 photographers do a test shoot. Greg was by far the best! We needed lifestyle shots so we gave Greg some samples. He found the model, picked the location, and without direction on his own produced the best shots we have ever seen

I'm an actress and have worked with many different photographers & cinematographers for almost 10 years. Jeremiah was kind enough to take some head shots for my acting resume. He was very receptive to my ideas and was willing to stand/sit in awkward positions to get the shot he wanted. He has a wonderful eye for capturing the personality of whom he is photographing. Jeremiah made me laugh during the photo shoot and was very timely in providing the edited pictures back to me. Jeremiah really is looking for his client's best interests and that's what makes him run a smooth photography business.

Igor was fantastic! We hired him to do family pictures which included 2 young children under the age of 4. He arrived on time (drove 2 hrs each way to get to us!). He was patient with our kids who weren't excited to be taking pictures. He made great recommendations on background and people placement. He would have done more but our kids were done after 1.5 hrs. We have used more expensive photographers, and Igor's work is on par with theirs. Our pictures are beautiful and we appreciate his work! Highly recommend!

I have worked with several photographers in the past, and I was nervous about my upcoming photoshoot. As soon as I met Ann-Marie, I felt relaxed and she listened to my needs and what types of photos I needed. The photos came out great. She also did a fantastic job with touch-ups as needed in a timely way, and worked professionally with my webdesigners to get my photos up on time. Several people have told me that I look younger on these photos than the ones the previous photographer took 3 years ago!

We had a great experience with him and we are happy with the pictures. The engagement photoshoot was smooth and he had great ideas for the poses of the photos., we did not have a clue of what to do. During the wedding he was always looking for the opportunity of getting a good photo. We strongly recommend him as your wedding photographer.

We didn't have a very clear idea of what we wanted for our baby photos, but she was ready to take control and make everything go well. At the same time, she accommodated all our sudden and unexpected requests. She's high-energy and extremely professional. Also just a pleasant person to talk to.

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.

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.

Parijata offered to take pictures for our daughters 2nd birthday party. And believe me when I say Parijata has taken excellent pictures and Very professional. Better than any pictures we have had from any other photographers till date. Including close-ups and portfolios. She really understands photography well. Other that that, Parijata is extremely skilled and talented with her paintings. She also does mehendi and face painting and arts and crafts. She is also very good at party planning. So you can always rely on Parijata to perform excellently for any task assigned to her and can always count on her. Parijata is very reliable. Parijata is also very forthcoming and always takes an initiative and offers to help and is very friendly and helpful. I wish Parijata best of luck and success in all her endeavors.

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!

Sitti arrived at the location of our wedding earlier than we have set, and she patiently waited for us. She was both professional and friendly. My partner and I had no experience of being professionally photographed, and Sitti gave us superb ideas on how to pose for the camera. Photos came out better than we have expected! She was able to capture the small details and the intimate moments of our wedding. We are greatly thankful that Sitti was our photographer on our very special day. Will definitely hire her again! :)

Joe photographed a huge party my parents had for their 60th wedding anniversary and for both of their 80th birthdays! He was great and captured wonderful candid photographs of all of the guests. He was also quick to get them to me and my family with different options for prints, CD's, and thumbdrives! Would highly recommend Joe for photography-both portraits and candids! He is also a teacher at my school and has caught some truely beautiful pictures of the children!

One of Aaron's greatest contributions to his photography is the great care he takes in framing and developing the right photos. He is an archivist and collector by upbringing; a keeper of memories long before he took up the camera. Having Aaron available for family photos gives me complete peace of mind that someone is capturing the right moments and handling them with care.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    Where is the best place to take baby pictures?

    Baby pictures are among the most popular types of portrait photography, and most newborn photographers are well versed in the best places to take baby pictures in their local areas. Some newborn photographers will come to the hospital to shoot the baby within a day or two of birth, while others have set up their studios to accommodate the needs of infants. Some parents prefer to have the newborn photographer come to their home or travel to a favorite park or other outdoor location. Like any portrait photography, the best place to take baby pictures is the place you like best and that will yield the types of photos you want of your baby, whether that’s posed and carefully lit studio portraits or spontaneous, casual photos at home. Work with a local newborn photographer to find a safe, calm location with great lighting and some privacy for your family.

    How much does baby photography cost?

    Portrait photography provides parents with lasting images of the first whirlwind months of a newborn’s life. The cost varies based on several factors, including the length and location of the session, the number of photos provided, and the amount of editing and retouching the photographer does. The national average cost for baby photos is $150-$200. Some baby photographers charge by the number of photos provided, typically ranging from an average of $299 for 20 high-resolution edited photos, to an average of $399 for 35 photos, to $499 for all of the images taken in a single session. Props and location affect the cost, too; an elaborate studio shoot with props and professional lighting may increase the cost to $600-$700 for 20-50 photos. Adding a second location or asking the photographer to travel can add $70-$250 to the cost of the session. Photographers may also charge extra fees for providing additional photos and DVDs, scheduling weekend sessions, and shooting siblings. Expect to pay at least a $50 deposit when you book a portrait photography session.

    When should you take newborn photos?

    Few styles of portrait photography are as tricky as newborn photos — the unpredictable infant is always in charge! The best way to ensure a successful photo shoot is to work with a local newborn photographer within the first two weeks of the baby’s life. Some photographers even work with hospitals to offer newborn sessions within a day of the baby’s birth. But newborn photographers usually recommend scheduling a shoot during the baby’s first two weeks of life, while the baby is still sleepy and relatively cooperative, especially for posed or studio shots. During this time, babies are easier to swaddle in blankets and dress in hats or headbands, and, because they often nap or nurse, can be staged with various props or be cuddled by their parents. For casual photos, most newborn photographers recommend shooting within the first six weeks of a baby’s life. Lifestyle portrait photography is more flexible and doesn’t require the baby to cooperate with multiple poses or props.
