I went on Thumbtack a month ago to book a photographer for family photos over Thanksgiving weekend while we were all in town. Darin was the first to respond and had the best price. The day he was supposed to do the shoot, it was raining outside. He suggested coming out to our home the following day to work around the weather and accommodate our schedules, even though he was booked to shoot a wedding that night. He was so accommodating and took over 150 photos of our family! He even made time to send some "teaser" photos the next day despite having been out late shooting the wedding. He was energetic, engaging, and a very gifted professional. The teaser photos are absolutely beautiful and we can't wait to see the rest!!! I highly recommend him to anyone who wants a talented photographer who cares as much about your photos as you do!

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.

I absolutely loved working with this photographer! He did an amazing job coming up with poses and creative ideas. I had him come to do a photo shoot with me and a group of friends and it was such a fun and relaxed day. He was quick editing and getting them back to us, and was always there to answer any questions. I would 100% recommend him to anyone needing pictures!

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.
