We hired The DJ's Mic, for a 40th birthday. Decided to go with the full package deal. Lights, sound, a photographer, and Photobooth. This was our first photobooth experience, and I must say the kids had loads if fun. The music was a nice blend of anything that you would typically find on the radio, with some older stuff thrown in for old timers like myself. I do want to apologize to "Mike" our DJ. The kids would not leave him alone. However he was very patient with them and played all of there songs. Over all I would recommend. We paid $2400 for a DJ, Photography, A photobooth, and the DJ. A great price!

Joe was an absolute pleasure to work with for our engagement photos and wedding photography! I was initially interested in Joe because of his creative, artistic and beautiful photos and his eye for finding and capturing the most unique perspectives, which clearly set his images apart from other photographers that I have seen. He was incredibly responsive, detail oriented, punctual and just plain fun and pleasant to communicate with throughout the entire process - from our first call, to the engagement photo shoot, to the day of our wedding. He got to know us as a couple and understood our vision, and was able to bring it to life even better than I could have asked for. He is also very quick to turn around finished images, which is a huge bonus. I would recommend Joe to anyone who is looking for incredible photography services, wedding and beyond, and who appreciates creative and artistic imagery that really stands out above the rest of the photographers out there. I couldn't have asked for a better person to capture our special day, and will certainly reach out to Joe for future photography needs. Attached are a few samples of his work with us. Let the images speak for themselves!

Working with Pablo was amazing!!!!! He was so fun to work with and he was affordable!!!! We just had a baby so my now husband and I were on a tight budget. We couldn't find any photographers with decent prices, then I found Pablo!!! He's such a love to work with and he really helped keep a some what stressful day fun and light. What I have seen so far of the pictures is amazing and I will definitely be using him again in the future!! His assistant was great too!!!

We needed a photographer to do our wedding ceremony, and came to thumbtack, based on reviews we chose Liesl, it was an amazing choice. Liesl was not only professional, above and beyond accommodating, but when someone is passionate about what they do it is evident and she is a pro! Our photos are more than we had hoped for and if you are choosing between photographers, a choice of Liesl is not only a great one, but one you will be excited and happy about for years to come.

Jen photographed our wedding. She was responsive and professional. Her photographs were lovely and captured many spectacular organized photos but also amazing candid shots...the kind you always want to get! She warmly fit right into the background of our gathering and was very pleasant to deal with on a personal level. I would highly recommend Jen for anyone looking to hire a photographer for a wedding!

Greg was our wedding photographer 10 years ago. He did a lovely job capturing the beauty of the day. I loved the candid shots especially. He was quick to process all pictures, back in the day of film rolls. Digital photography was new technology back then, and he also took some digital pictures that are amazing. His laid back personality really helped make us more comfortable. Most of the time, we didn't even know he was taking the pictures. I would highly recommend Greg!

Tanya was one of the easiest/enjoyable photographers to work with. Our original event got rescheduled last minute and Tanya made herself available for our new event date without a fuss. She delivered a handful of photos the day of the event (last minute request) and delivered the remaining photos in a timely matter. Great quality photos. Would recommend.

Shawn is amazing!!!!! I loved all my pictures! I have had some friends with horror stories about their photographers- taking over 6 months to get their photos and them not even being great quality. You do not have to worry about that with Shawn. Besides engagement photos, I never had professional pictures. Shawn put me at ease even with my high anxiety and not feeling well that day. I had many unexpected moments at my wedding- including my dress zipper breaking! One of the funniest photos is seeing my sisters reaction when the dress broke- Shawn was there for every moment and caught everything on film. I highly recommend her- and she travels!

Trevor was very accommodating with our last minute venue change. 2 weeks before our wedding day we found out our venue had been double booked and we had been bumped. Instead of rescheduling our entire wedding we just opted to move it to The Victoria Inn in Hampton. It was nice to know that we could count on Trevor to be accommodating when everything else was turning into such a mess. He even brought a second photographer because of the venue change! The weather was great and the photos he did turned out beautiful! We are very glad we went with him.

I was in search of high quality headshots for upcoming media and public relations activities for my work. I was so happy to find Rum Doodle and John. Appointment setup was a breeze -- John was fast and accommodating. During our meeting, John quickly asked questions to understand my needs and got right to work. The results were exactly what I needed. Options were provided within 24 hours. John was so great to work with and such a talented photographer (displays of his work are beautiful) that I will consider Rum Doodle for any of my photography needs -- family portraits or business events.

Nelson is an amazing photographer, with a beautiful sense of composition, lighting, and story-telling. All of our pictures turned out wonderful! But what is best about working with Nelson is his sense of joy and happiness, which you can't help but be moved by! My wife is a natural in front of the camera, but I have always felt self-conscious. Nelson was able to get me to relax and just enjoy myself...and the pictures turned out incredible! We did two sessions with Nelson, at two different locations, and he was more than happy to accommodate our needs. We can't recommend him enough!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

Where is the best place to take baby pictures?

Baby pictures are among the most popular types of portrait photography, and most newborn photographers are well versed in the best places to take baby pictures in their local areas. Some newborn photographers will come to the hospital to shoot the baby within a day or two of birth, while others have set up their studios to accommodate the needs of infants. Some parents prefer to have the newborn photographer come to their home or travel to a favorite park or other outdoor location. Like any portrait photography, the best place to take baby pictures is the place you like best and that will yield the types of photos you want of your baby, whether that’s posed and carefully lit studio portraits or spontaneous, casual photos at home. Work with a local newborn photographer to find a safe, calm location with great lighting and some privacy for your family.

How much does baby photography cost?

Portrait photography provides parents with lasting images of the first whirlwind months of a newborn’s life. The cost varies based on several factors, including the length and location of the session, the number of photos provided, and the amount of editing and retouching the photographer does. The national average cost for baby photos is $150-$200. Some baby photographers charge by the number of photos provided, typically ranging from an average of $299 for 20 high-resolution edited photos, to an average of $399 for 35 photos, to $499 for all of the images taken in a single session. Props and location affect the cost, too; an elaborate studio shoot with props and professional lighting may increase the cost to $600-$700 for 20-50 photos. Adding a second location or asking the photographer to travel can add $70-$250 to the cost of the session. Photographers may also charge extra fees for providing additional photos and DVDs, scheduling weekend sessions, and shooting siblings. Expect to pay at least a $50 deposit when you book a portrait photography session.

When should you take newborn photos?

Few styles of portrait photography are as tricky as newborn photos — the unpredictable infant is always in charge! The best way to ensure a successful photo shoot is to work with a local newborn photographer within the first two weeks of the baby’s life. Some photographers even work with hospitals to offer newborn sessions within a day of the baby’s birth. But newborn photographers usually recommend scheduling a shoot during the baby’s first two weeks of life, while the baby is still sleepy and relatively cooperative, especially for posed or studio shots. During this time, babies are easier to swaddle in blankets and dress in hats or headbands, and, because they often nap or nurse, can be staged with various props or be cuddled by their parents. For casual photos, most newborn photographers recommend shooting within the first six weeks of a baby’s life. Lifestyle portrait photography is more flexible and doesn’t require the baby to cooperate with multiple poses or props.
