Darin was amazing! Very professional; had great ideas where photos should be taken. I was looking for a more modern look for professional head shot for my new business; Darin accomplished this and made me feel totally comfortable in the process. I had the choice of six photographers and after reviewing their portfolio's I chose Dear Hart and so glad I did! You will not be disappointed!

We hired the Film Perspective to do a photo booth for our wedding reception. Our photographer did a great job. He had a variety of props and all the guests had a great time. The best part was seeing all of the images on the disc after the honeymoon. The BEST part was watching video messages from our dear friends that stayed later and recorded them. We would recommend the Film Perspective for your photo booth! We would recommend the video portion be available earlier. All in all a great experience!

I would say this is the most amazing photographer that I have ever worked with but she is more than that. She is the most amazing PERSON I have ever worked with on anything period! She is professional, courteous, and accommodating yet easy going and fun-loving! We hired her to do my daughter's senior pictures and I can't even begin to describe what an incredible experience it was. Not only did she do a fantastic job she did it at the last minute. The photographer that we originally hired cancelled 4 hours before the scheduled shoot. He was worried about the weather forecast. I knew it was a long shot to try and find someone else at the last minute but we had already put a lot of preparation into getting ready for the session. By that I mean we had already picked the outfits, done the hair and makeup and I had transformed the back of our SUV into a sort of fitting room. Since we were doing the shoot Downtown St Louis I knew my daughter would need a place to change clothes so I was prepared. Little did I know that Giovanna, even on such short notice, had us covered for any eventuality. She had her own little pop up dressing room, towels, umbrellas and just about anything else you can think of or would need. Again she did all of this with just a couple hours notice. Only later did I find out that she lives about an hour from the location we had chosen for the shoot so really she put it together in about an hour and she did it without hesitation. Needless to say I was extremely grateful for everything she was doing and I told her I couldn't believe what all she had done to make it happen for us. Her response was simply, "I like to make people happy." Now you know what I mean when I say she is the most amazing PERSON period! How many photographers would drop everything they were doing last minute on a Sunday afternoon, meet a strange client an hour away, and be more professional and prepared than any photographer you have ever worked with before......only GIOVANNA von NIDA PHOTOGRAPHY I guarantee it !!!

After a great first experience with Karen's photography, I have asked her to do our family portraits annually for the past six years. Unlike previous photographers, within 4 days Karen gave me a disk with ALL THE PHOTOS. I like to decide which quirky look is typical and endearing on a child, something a photographer can't know. Since I got all the photos I had great fun playing with cropping them and choosing which to frame. She has done Senior Portraits, formal groups and my favorite are the very informal settings. I will call her again and again.

Mike O is the best photographer to have for any special occasion or photography session. He was on early and on top of all the details. There was no set schedule for his time. Mike made sure to be there for every moment of my wedding. If there was a request he was so flexible and fufilled it while giving his professional opinion. My photos turned out gorgeous including the samples he gave us as a gift. Unlike most photographers he dedicates his time unlimited to you and gave us a copy of all the moments. His pricing was less than any others and the quality even better!! Many of my guests complimented on how interactive and hilarious he was as well.

Andre was amazing. I reached out via thumbtack and he was the only person to follow up 2x. Time zones were an issue with me being in New Zealand and him being in The USA. I liked his vibe and was comfortable the event would be properly documented-a family gathering. I ended up having a high school reunion the following weekend and was happy that he was available then too...no one had considered that a professional photographer would be a massive improvement over just a bunch of selfies... If you want quality and amazing memories, Andre is someone I can totally resommend!

I have seen many photographers before.Actually, I am really picky with every single thing that I wanna do or buy, but, but, he is the one whom you can ly on him with no hassles.we had 3 hrs of fun and enjoyable photo-shooting with him and, I really happy for choosing him between other photographers .our photos are amazing and speechless.I really love ,love ,love.... my husband is a very uncomfortable guy with these kinds of stuff like photo-shooting, but at the end, he told me we should have more session in future and it was shocking for me :))definitely I and my husband will have more session in different seasons with him, as long as we live in St.Louis. I highly recommend him to any couples who looking for a punctual, professional, responsible photographer with a calm session, and amazing photos... :)

As an event planner, I need a photographer that can capture the essence of an event with little direction in an editorial style. Now You See It Photography does an exceptional job with capturing moments and not just taking pictures. The owner, Richard, has a unique eye that frames the beauty of every moment. He is my go to photographer.

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.
