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!

Working with Lisa was such a wonderful experience! Blair and I had never been on a shoot before, so we had no idea what to expect. Lisa was really great at making the experience fun and easy by giving great tips, and by making us laugh. I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking a professional photographer for any occasion!

Chris was an amazing photographer. He is very professional and fun at the same time. He is very patient and easy to work with before and while he is photographing. Chris is very talented and will provide exceptional service. You can tell being a photographer is his passion. If you need and want a committed photographer then Aerial 7 is the one.

I was given Terrell's name by a great friend, of mine. He had done some photography work for them. I gave Terrell Turner Photography a call. He was very professional, prompt, prices were great! I was very pleased with my pictures, that he did for my wedding! The picture album that I received was so breath taken! I will use him again for other photography needs. I have told my family and friends about him, because he is the best that I have come into contact with. Also, I was so impressed with the quality of work.

We have had the pleasure of having Becca photograph our family 3 times. She was able to adapt to each situation with incredible flexibility and skill. The first time was a whole family (11 people including 4 children under the age of 7). Becca put everyone at ease and was able to capture the whole group at once. The pictures were great. We did fall pictures with just my daughters. These were perfect. She got the perfect mix of personality candids and sweet sister poses. Finally she took pictures at my daughters swim meet. The action shots were amazing. Becca was prompt, professional, skilled and fun to work with. My family will treasure these pictures forever.

    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.
