Lyn did a fabulous job of photographing our family of 12 yesterday. She arranged four family groupings with ease. Working well with 4, 7, 9 and 12 year olds with such cooperation at an early morning photo shoot was very impressive. The quality of work and her style are highly recommended for any occasion!

Johan was a great photographer! He photographed our outdoor wedding in March of 2017. He directed us well and made us feel comfortable. Plus, his prices were pretty affordable (his quote was only beat by one other photographer and we liked Johan's work better than even the more expensive photographers). We received a a disc with our chosen photo as the cover. It had been lost in the mail the first time Johan sent it to us (he sent another one) so it took a bit to get our disc, but not any crazy amount of time. We liked how most of the photos turned out and overall were very pleased.

I was in a pinch (timewise) to have my professional headshot completed for a presentation the same week. Cody was immediately responsive to my request (less than 5 minutes) and was present at my office the very next business day before noon. We took a variety of shots and chose various backdrops that were lit in different ways. Cody selected the best shots and sent them via Dropbox the next day. So while there are many local photographers in the greater Charlotte, NC area I would recommend Cody for any of your project needs based on his professionalism and availability and quality work.

The girls and I had a great time while working on my photoshoot. Lindsey and Jamie are both laid back, and pleasant to work with. Lindsey had some ideas beforehand, so we didn't go blindly into the shoot- everything worked out smoothly, and it didn't take long at all (compared to other shoots that I've done)! Excellent photographers with top notch work!

We have used Katey for over three years now. She has done a remarkable job capturing moments from days after my daughter was born, to our children interacting with one another, to full family portraits. We have had other photographers attempt to take pictures, and nothing matches up to the style of photography and final product that she is able to create. Our family room hallway and living room are all adorned with the pictures that she has captured for us to document our lives.

Andrea was a delight to work with and produced beautiful photos. She was very responsive and sensitive to what I was looking for and made the whole experience a pleasure. She not only made me feel comfortable, she was creative and made the shoot fun. She's a gifted photographer, professional to the core, and did a great job editing the final photos. I will definitely use her again and recommend her to my friends!

We have not yet received the photos, but from the sneak peak we are very excited to see our family photos. Chris and his wife were amazing with our toddler! They were incredibly laid back and professional. Throughout the entire process, Chris was very punctual in his responses. During the photo session, Chris was attentive to capture the photos we hope for and even checked at the end to make sure he did not miss any photo ideas we wanted. We definitely recommend ChrisLeach Media.

Shaun was very laid back and enjoyable to work with. We have gotten so many compliments on our senior's photos. Shaun has given us images that we will cherish for a lifetime. We even got to use our favorite family park for pictures. Shaun, thank you for working with our schedules and being so flexible and efficient with our time. Things can get so crazy when you are running a large framily calendar and trying to get everything taken care of, but you made it easy. You are highly recommended and we will see you in 2 years for Jake's pictures!! ~ Josh's Mom

Quality and presentation along with creativity is essential so if you want to get great images with quality albums , Ali Nicole is your girl! She is one of the best photographers, provides you good quality of photo. Ali took pictures for my daughter's wedding. She delivered way more than we expected and was way more than a pleasure to have around on our special day. She took very unique and beautiful shots. Leave your paintrist idia at home just let Ali do her thing, and I am sure you will be very happy.

Willam's Photography did a wonderful job with my family photos. As a photographer myself, I am very picky with photos. I also hire them to shoot alongside me at Weddings, so I trust them implicitly.

Tian is an absolute genius when it comes to photography. Her work evokes in you a sense of not only wonder, but that little something you've been missing your entire life. Her professionalism is paralleled by none, she is in a class all her own. If you're looking for a unique experience that will leave you simultaneously feeling at peace AND like one of the family, you have found your photographer. **Beware, she may very well become one of your best friends in the process.

Amber did the photography for our wedding in January 2014. She made us feel very comfortable and calm from the start. The first time I spoke to her over the phone she was warm and professional which is exactly how she is in person. I had no doubt whatsoever that working with her was going to be smooth and easy. Before the wedding I sent her ideas of shots I would like to do and she brought all of those ideas with her to the wedding. We absolutely loved working with her not only because she was easy going but she was very organized too. Our friends and family came to us throughout the wedding telling us how "amazing...sweet...friendly...awesome" our photographer was. She fit right in with our guests. She always emailed me right back before and after our wedding. After the wedding we didn't have to wait long to see all of our photos. We were absolutely delighted to see how well the photos turned out. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer that truly goes above and beyond taking pictures.

I would give her 10 stars if I could!!!! Seriously could not a be happier customer. You won’t be disappointed! And you won’t find a better price. I routinely hire photographers, this one being a last minute whim while we were on vacation. She responded immediately, with the best (lowest) offer. She was so easy to work with and super responsive. She had all kinds of ideas and did research to help me achieve the look I wanted. When the day came, she showed up an hour early, with her own props!! and she stayed until she was certain we had all the shots we had hoped for and more. She was friendly and patient. She had my photos back to me in FOUR days, which is record time for any project I’ve worked on (note: we had agreed on a two week turn around!!) super professional, super qualified, super duper!!! You will love her 100% I am a fan for life and will use again for all my photo needs in that area. The review only lets me upload 4, but she delivered like 200 stunning images of my family. So happy!!!!!!!!!!

I have worked with other photographers before, and she definitely stands out from my previous experiences. She covered my daughter's quinceañera and did an excellent job. She's very down to earth, arrived early, has been very responsive to communication, is fairly priced, and knew precisely when to take the most memorable shots. She took the most awe inspiring candids and knew just how to stage portraits and group shots. Honestly, there's a shortage of good photographers in the area. You get photographers who overcharge for shoddy simple portraits to others who won't even go for family events unless they charge ridiculous rates. I am very pleased with the rate, customer service was top of the line, and I'm very pleased with the results. I would most definitely recommend her to anyone.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.
Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
