Mark came to our home to take some family photographs outside. He was very patient which was helpful since we had family visiting from out of town and our 18 month old decided he didn't want to be held or cooperate. I was thinking we probably didn't get any good shots, but Mark came through and had some amazing shots. Would definitely recommend!

First, a few words of background, so that this review can be put into perspective. I am an interior designer, based in France. I work with high-end clientele, and on high-end projects. I work with very high-end French and English photographers, as well. So, in the aesthetics and creative department, this reviewer has a professional basis on which to evaluate. I say this, as I want Steven to get the real credit he deserves. I was amazed with Steven's photographs. Amazed is the right word, as I was expecting "good", or even "great", but I definitely did not think I would get "amazing". Moreover, it was of an event he had never done before, and thus likely posed at least some sort of initial challenge to him (although he said nothing). It was a horse show, and I wanted candids of my horse, the grooming, the prep before going in the ring, training and interacting with the trainer, and so on. Now Steven not only rose to the occasion, but took amazingly powerful and beautiful shots. He has a way of getting "inside", of finding the images that have flair. Just as effortlessly, he finds the fun, the charming. He can do it all. He has the eye. A very, very good eye. I would say he has the talent, but talent is a misnomer, as used in most contexts. Talent is what a Mom might say a kid has, when the kid is nine years old. Most kids end up doing nothing with that God-given talent. It is wasted, never to be known. But not with Steven. He has taken his talent and honed it, perfected it. His taste (which is knowledge and practice) is of a high caliber, and this only comes from hard work. And it shows. Moreover, he is adabtable and very, very creative, always thinking. He is a total professional, and his images show that. This was obvious the moment I opened the CD of photos of the event he sent me, and looked at the first handful of photos. Hire him, and you will see the difference between the superlative, and the ordinary and undistinguished. G. Hucek, Normandy, France.

We had a wonderful experience with Shelli Craig! She is very professional, yet personable! We hired to her shoot my daughter's senior pictures after a great consultation. Shelli was very easy to talk with and explained everything from settings, to pricing, to final product selection. We loved working with her. She has a great eye and poses the subject in a very matter-of-a-fact way. Her studio is gorgeous, but we went to her beautiful farm for outdoor photos. We highly recommend her.

Suzanne managed to work me and my puppies into her busy schedule before Christmas. I needed to have a picture to send to my Mom for Christmas . She took many pictures of me and my puppies and actually had some printed and left on my door step in time for me to get one to my Mom before Christmas. It all worked out perfectly. I had contacted 4 other recommended photographers before finding Suzanne on Thumbtack. None of the other photographers called me back. All of the photographers from Thumbtack actually contacted me. I appreciate the response from all of the photographers. Suzanne was pleasant to work with and did a great job. She worked so well with my puppies. I appreciate her taking the time to meet my schedule and request.

Our experiences with DebVincent Studio have been awesome. We used Deb's services for a couples photo and recently had her update our photos for our 35th anniversary. She did a wonderful job taking these outdoor photos. She is creative and uses nature and lighting well. She really made us feel at ease, which produced great photos. We were impressed with her quick turnaround. We had her send print copies -the quality was great. We highly recommend Deb's services.

Very enthusiastic, personal and pleasant. Provided great value, including a disk of all wedding pictures that we own for our use. Picture quality was excellent; some group pictures could have been better staged. There were limitations in that regard as our wedding was in an outdoor area with a large fountain in the middle. All in all, we were very satisfied.

My experience with Julissa Photography was amazing! I couldn't have asked for a better photographer to capture my family's memories. She advised us from what to wear to how to smile and pose for a picture!!! It was perfect to have someone like Julissa because not only did she take beautiful pictures but her patience helped my whole family to relax and have the best shoots. Her enthusiasm and passion for what she does reflects on her photography.

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

He was not only courteous and professional, but he was also very respectful of my wishes and any ideas that I had for photographs. I would highly recommend him to my friends or anyone looking for a professional photographer for an event. I couldn't be happier with the photographs from my wedding day. Thank you again Kris!

    Ri is Awesome sauce sent from the photography Gods. She isn't your typical photographer. She has a creative style, and didn't tell me to stand there and smile, she rolled around on the floor, climbed on ladders, we had fun! I love her team and my pictures. My friends and family don't use anybody else. see you next month Ri!!

    Can demonstrated her artistic skills last month when she photographed my family at her outdoor studio. After listening to what we had in mind and suggesting additional ideas, she made our large group feel that we were participating in something that was going to be relaxed and fun. Her arrangements were imaginative, a special challenge since we were a large group. I especially enjoyed her photographs from those spontaneous moments in the session. Overall, Can clearly has a talent for capturing the essence of our personalities in her creative photographs. Fantastic work!

    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!!!!!!!!!!

    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.
