I found Doug on Thumbtack and was pleased to have him photograph my wedding this past October. First, I was so pleased to meet him before hand and see more of his work so I knew what to expect. But more than that, I realized that Doug is an exciting, interesting, and cheerful person which made the experience even better. He has an artistic eye and really made some beautiful memories that made me excited to have him shoot my big day! During the day, Doug captured fantastic moments and was flexible when we wanted him to get a specific person or time. He was over all energetic and cheerful! I had a few friends that are amateur photographers also take pictures for us and Doug took the time to answer some of their photography questions and giving them tips - going above and beyond his call... Finally, my pictures came out beautiful and in a timely manner. I can't thank him enough for capturing our day and producing this precious keepsake!

My resident holiday party was an absolute success! The residents really enjoyed their keepsake photo's of their family and friends. It was an Ugly Sweater themed party which made it even more memorable! Josh was our Photo Booth Operator and he was super professional and very accommodating to all of our guests. He showed up on time and was incredibly engaging with every guest! Thank you so much and we will for sure reach out to use Party Favor Photo again and again and again!

I booked 95 Images (Mr. Ronnie Nettles) to photograph my mother's 80th birthday party and I could not be more pleased. He is an outstanding professional who arrived early to scout the shot and then worked diligently throughout the party to capture the gestalt of the event. There were over 50 guests at the party and they ranged in age from 2 to 80+ and included private sector executives along with current and retired government officials, and Ronnie was able to make all of them feel comfortable about being photographed - he was particularly good with the children and the retirees. I would certainly retain the services of 95 Images again, and would recommend this great photographer to my friends and family.

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!

Thanks to DIM Productions for an amazing experience! Karmin is THE photographer that you want for familial events, sporting events, weddings, and et-cetera. I've hired Karmin a number of times and have never doubted that it was among the best decisions I've ever made. Karmin has impeccable timing, vision and experience to distinguish a great shot from a good one! She's personable, engaging, down-to-earth and just has a way with people that enthralls and disarms them. She's got an uncompromising standard at events and in her private studio. I cannot commend Karmin highly enough! -Al Johnson

It has been years since we have taken family pictures because we were always told to sit in a position and smile. That at which did not work for my family and all we ended up with was fake smiles! With Julie, she interacted the whole time and had us laughing and having fun! I am over the moon estactic with our pictures! Thank you Julie!

Oh my God... Where do I begin? Priscilla is hands down the best photographer my husband and I have met. Pri brings so much energy and passion to what she does, that it's contagious. Her customer service from the moment you reach out to when she delivers your images is spot on. She is open to ideas, creativity, and let's you take control of your shoot, if that is what you are into. Dealing with Priscilla is not like dealing with someone you hired to take your pictures, but a friend that just so happens to be taking your pictures. I do not regret a single thing about choosing Pri as our engagement photographer. We are amazed by the results!! We definitely will be recommending her to all our friends and family, and will be using her as our family photographer for years to come. Thanks Pri!

You only have so many times in your life where you can capture the moment. Your child's special event (Prom) is one of those occasions. Eddie Lee was the photographer of choice for this event and he was great and was an absolute pleasure to work with. He was very friendly and very humble. Our time was scheduled for 5:30-8:30, once we spoke and I told him I had to take my daughter to another location @ 5 for her makeup he had no problem meeting me at that location to capture those moments at no additional charge. He took lots of great shots of my daughter getting ready for her Junior prom. He was very understanding with me and my family trying to capture every moment. After all pictures where taken and my daughter left for the prom he gave me the raw footage on the spot. Usually photographers do not do that but he knew I wanted to post some pictures of the event to facebook and Instagram. :) Eddie is in the process of editing some of the pictures and will be delivering them to me this week. I am sure they will be awesome. Eddie Lee was very professional, knowledgeable and very reasonable. I was so impressed with Eddie Lee Photography I will be using him again to take my Daughters Senior Portraits.

We used Metin / Picaboost Photography for my sister's wedding. From the initial contact and throughout the entire, Metin was very responsive. He answered any questions we had right away and even had a phone call with us to talk details before signing a contract. Since we had to push up the wedding, time was crucial and Metin was quick to respond so that was very helpful! We sent Metin a video shot list and he captured everything we asked of him. He arrived early the day of the wedding and was very kind and professional. We only requested raw footage and the footage he sent was great! He cut the footage down so it would not be overwhelming but he still had all of the important parts of the day. We would highly request Metin and Picaboost Photography!

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!

Victoria and her partner are very helpful and amazing photographers! They were on time for our occasion, and she helped us reserve a place to take the pictures. 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. Thanks Victoria again :)

sjsFoto was a miracle worker with editing photos from my brother’s wedding! We had a family photo that was beautiful, but missing my father. SjsFoto took a photo of my father from the same event and added him into the family photo. The quality was amazing and you’d never know the photo was edited. We now have a beautiful photo to display.

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.

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.
