Dealora was great; she was able to get a good mix of candid and group pictures at our family reunion. Cats successfully herded! The final pictures were spot-on for what we wanted...very pleased!

Lyn is absolutely amazing! She came to us here in Greenville,SC. She chose an amazing location after I told her exactly what I wanted. Her prices are super cheap for amazing quality! I would never use another photographer again. It was blazing hot and she was extremely patient making sure she got every shot and that they were perfect. I've used a lot of photographers in the past and she outdid them all by a long shot and I couldn't be happier with our amazing photos!

Tara is an excellent photographer! She is great with both people and pets. She seems to manage to capture that twinkle in their eye and a winning smile. Her professional headshots make the difference when enhancing that professional profile and stepping up your game. When you want to know WHO takes the photographers photo; it’s Tara!

I cannot say enough good things about Scott Clinton and the photo shoot we did with him. I worked for a national ad agency for many years prior to coming to BonWorth and we used photographers from all over the world--Scott was better, more creative, easier to work with and generally the best I have ever had the pleasure to work with. We plan on using him exclusively from this point forward. Lynne Strickland, BonWorth Marketing

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!

INCREDIBLY easy to work with. That along with their assistance in creative direction is why they are our 'go to' photographers when we launch new products. Their work pops on our Shopify and Amazon stores.

Jessica did our engagement photos in November of 2016. We had never had a photoshoot before and we requested some assistance. Jessica was somewhat helpful, but the whole process was kind of messy. We paid for a 2 hour session, but she insisted we had enough photos after about an hour. We did receive the photos quickly, but it did not contain all the pictures we took. We wanted to be the ones to pick what we did and did not like not the photographer. We contacted Jessica and she sent us another flash drive with the additional 140 photos, which we thought we were getting initially. She also did not include one of the photo sets that we requested when we filled out her questionnaire. With some back and forth messaging we did get what we wanted. She's an okay photographer, nothing special. Definitely get what you pay for.

It was a family photo of myself and three grandchildren . This was no ordinary photograph......Erin is very artistic and her talents show well through her work. We chose a natural setting at a park, and the colors were just beautiful. She is very good with children and captured their personalities completely. Nothing about it looked staged or out of place.....and we had so much fun doing this that I can't wait to do it again.

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.

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.
