Beyond impressed with Tina's incredible talent and flawless ability behind the lens. She spends careful time and does not make you feel rushed in front of the camera. She goes the extra mile to ensure you are most comfortable at all times. She was also one of the nicest, most friendly, energetic and trustworthy photographers I've worked with! I am thrilled with the final product and her creative touch added to my port.

Fantastic experience. I am not photogenic (at all) but needed professional headshots for my social media profiles and blog. Doug's affable tripod side manner, expert skill, and careful planning helped me feel comfortable and produced numerous excellent shots that were just what I needed. He charges a little more than some of the other photographers I've worked with before, but the final photos are well worth the modest extra investment.

We just wrapped a Glow party for our 10yo and Party Favor Photo was an absolute hit at the party! The kids LOVED the booth and the on site photo prints, plus all the digital adds, including free downloads of all the photos in and out of the template, is an amazing bonus. From start to finish they were completely professional and amazing. They designed a beautiful custom template pre-party to match the theme, and the prints are amazing!!!! Our attendant arrived on time and was really patient and nice, despite a constant influx of young kids. She was also was very helpful in ensuring that all heights were captured:-) When our photo booth rental time was almost done, our attendant was amazing and made sure she grabbed our daughter to take photos with as many people as possible for the last 15 mins! She was paying attention and noticed she had not gotten a lot of shots with her. This meant that we ended up with a ton of photos of our daughter and her friends, which we otherwise would not have gotten. I will definitely use them for the next event I have that uses a photo booth. I highly recommend that you use this company for your photo booth rental.

He was just absolutely amazing! His pictures are even more amazing! He asked ahead of time what rules we had and how he can be respectful of the venue. He captured exactly what I wanted him to capture with little direction from me. One thing I liked most about him was the booking, he wasn't too pushy like the other photographers I talked to and I didn't feel like he was nickel and dime-ing me like the other photographers. I hope if I have an event in the future that he will be available to come photograph it! Thank you Greg!

Joshua is one of the best photographers I've ever met. From the beginning of my search for a photographer, Joshua's work and professionalism stood out among the others. While I needed headshots, I also wanted something different, something other than the generic canned ones we've all grown accustomed to seeing. I wanted something casual and spontaneous but certainly not a selfie. As soon as I saw Joshua's portfolio, I knew he was the right one for me. This conviction was confirmed even before I met him in person. Joshua was forthright and proactive in laying out the logistics of what to expect in advance of our appointment. The day of the shoot, he arrived ahead of schedule and allowed enough time to talk with me about his style, his work, and listen to what I wanted and expected. Once the camera started rolling, he made me feel comfortable and at ease and gave me step by step directions of where he wanted me, and what he wanted me to do. I didn't feel like I was posing but stood and acted like I normally do. This gives a much more natural, effective, and stand-out photograph, and I am very pleased with the results. Joshua is friendly, personable, highly skilled at his trade, and very conscientious. He's a consummate professional and has very reasonable rates. I highly recommend Joshua and encourage you to take the time to familiarize yourself with his work. Next time you need a photographer, you now know who to call.

Chris arrived right at "golden hour" and spent several hours working with me to get just the right shots that will absolutely sell my house. Some photographers "over photoshop" the pix and distort the reality of the house... Chris gave my home the warmth and perfect proportion needed to make the house feel like a home... and not a builders model! My Paulis photos are getting 200 views a day on Zillow! Thanks Chris!

D.I.M was very professional with our engagement pictures. I asked them for some last minute items and they were able to handle the requests with zero issues. Our photographer was even able to get a table with two chairs by the harbor set up with the bottle of champagne I asked him to bring. I would highly recommend D.I.M to anyone. Thank you for making my proposal that much easier!! Sincerely, Tony

One of the best Photographers the DMV has to offer! We actually came across Jamaal while he was covering my Soror's Wedding in Baltimore this past year! We had been looking for a photographer for the longest time and we were farmiliar with is work, but watching him while he worked is what sealed the deal for us. He floated around the room effortlessly leaving so many smiling faces in his wake, including ours. We didn't even need to see the final photographs, we were already sold(The Photographs were pretty darn awesome too!). We immediately reached out to Jamaal to schedule our engagement shoot and he didn't disappoint! My partner and I were brought to tears by the images. His turnaround is unmatched! (1-2 days). If you're on the fence about booking Jamaal, consider this the push that gets you over the fence. Book him. Now! You will not regret it, we didn't! Not one bit!

Studio Pri is amazing! We hired Studio Pri off of Thumbtack and have absolutely no regrets in our decision since there are so many photographers out here! We also used them for our engagement photos which turned out beautifully! Priscilla and her team are easy going and very personal. They make you feel comfortable taking photos since most of us aren't used to it! Priscilla was very responsive to emails and got back to me within 1 day. They had our wedding photos and engagement photos ready for us within weeks! We are amazed at how good we looked in them and would definitely used their services again. Thanks so much for capturing all the amazing moments at our wedding :D

We used Dawn Elliott, owner of Snapngiggle Photography, for our recent wedding, and we were absolutely thrilled with every aspect of our experience! Dawn is a class-act, not to mention an extremely warm and caring person who is clearly passionate about what she does and that passion shines through from the first time you meet her. In our case, all of of these traits helped to make everyone that much more comfortable taking photos, which on what can naturally be a very stressful day, was very welcomed, especially for this nervous bride! We were also highly impressed with how well Dawn captured our family's spirit in all of our photos and are grateful for the time and attention she clearly took making sure to capture all of the day's special moments and touches. She did not miss a thing! Dawn's finished work was excellent as well, and again, we simply could not have asked for anything more. We would recommend Dawn without reservation to anyone looking for a photographer for an event. Not only will you be getting a wonderful photographer, but you will also be getting a reliable, trustworthy person! We highly recommend giving Dawn at Snapngiggle your business!

Justin and I started a conversation a little over a week ago. I was looking for a photographer who would be able to take us some couples photos for the holiday season. From the very start, Justin was punctual and he continued to be punctual through to the delivery of the photos. Often times when people hire photographers, people complain that photographers lose momentum once they’ve been offered the gig or once they’ve received payment. This is absolutely not the case with Justin. Justin’s punctuality definitely has been a plus point all the way. I also appreciated that Justin works with clients across varying price points. In addition, I must say Justin’s offer was definitely reasonable given that we’re situated in the DMV. Interacting with Justin, one of the first things I let him know was that I just wanted a quick photo shoot that would be a leg up from our usual selfies. Justin understood exactly what I was expecting out of our photo shoot. Justin and I worked out the details over text, and the photo shoot was quick and effortless. Though I didn’t end up calling him myself, I did pass on Justin’s phone number to a few colleagues of mine - he had such a great offer that I had to share with others! On that note, if you need to hop on the phone to talk details, just ask for his phone number. I am absolutely all about Pinterest and all things Pinterest related. I had ideas of poses but when we met up, my mind sort of went blank (I blame the cold!) and Justin had great ideas which resulted in some beautiful photos of the two of us. I also have to praise Justin’s understanding of space, lighting, and photography concept. Justin took a handful of posed and candid photos, which we both appreciated. Not only is Justin talented, but he is easygoing too. And that’s definitely a plus point when hiring a photographer. If you can’t be yourself around your photographer or if the photographer can’t get you to feel relaxed and at east, then you might as well throw in the towel because you won’t get quality photos. Thank you, Justin, we love love love our photos!! PS: Hire Justin. If my photos are any testament, I’m sure you too will be more than satisfied with yours!

They were very relaxed and professional during the day, always respecting our perspective. And the photos were also amazing, I think what she offers is a great price-performance quality.

Our photography experience with Heather was absolutely fantastic. As a band, we had used other photographers before, but no one was truly able to capture the “vision” we wanted for our album art and live performance photography. Heather was amazing in that she not only took the time to meet with us and refine that “vision”, but she also was able to go out and deliver on it with incredible pictures that gave us exactly what we wanted. It was obvious she takes great personal pride in her product, and we were excited to have her so involved throughout the creative process. Though we were inexperienced camera subjects, Heather made us feel comfortable and confident in our poses and backdrop selection. At our live set, she was able to capture the energy of the event, and showed real awareness capturing the venue and equipment as well as our band’s performance. It’s these little details and moments you wouldn’t think to capture that made Heather’s photography so special to us. And the best part for us was that she delivered all this quality at such an incredibly reasonable rate! After a long search for a photographer, we are so happy we finally found Heather. We are absolutely using her for all future shoots. Thank you so much Heather!!!

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.
