The entire experience with Mary was really great from start to finish. She was friendly, professional and most importantly, genuinely passionate about what she was doing. Mary was punctual and she was immediately polite, reassuring and excited. We took plenty of photos at City Hall, while walking to the subway, during the ride and then finally at Central Park with some great fall colours in the background. The pictures came out great and we loved talking to Mary and Ali, who were courteous and professional at all times. Mary was really generous with her pricing and took into account the fact that it was just my wife and I. Unlike a lot of quotes from other photographers, hers was one of the few that really reflected this fact. We highly recommend Mary.

Maria was beyond a pleasure to work with! She is a seasoned photographer with years of professional experience as well as top of the line equipment and resources. Maria made me feel super comfortable and took her time to walk me through all aspects of the shoot explicitly which made the whole experience an amazing one. I have worked with many photographers for various reasons, and Maria is hands down one of my favorites. I would recommend her services to any and anyone looking to get professional photos taken for any occasion!

Joe was extremely professional and responsive. I have worked with many photographers before and Joe was definitely the most "on-top-of-it"! Besides being easy to work with, the work product was amazing. Very clear and professional head shots. The subjects of his photos said he made them feel comfortable.

Never had such authentic and beautiful photos taken of me as those taken by Steve. Ended up paying more to order additional photos, I loved them all so much and could not narrow down to just a few favorites. FYI I am 47 & terribly shy and awkward in front of a camera. Steve was extremely professional, patient and persistent and gave me great direction to get the shots. He has an intuitive instinct, high expectations for his work and the greatest integrity. So much so that at first, the pictures weren't "working" according to him, so he retreated and booked a studio where we got our amazing shots. Most photographers would not have spent the extra time, would have just ploughed through. Not Steve. Consider yourself lucky if you can book with Steve. My guess is he won't be available for thumbtack booking for long. THX Steven!! You are amazing!!!

Bin did an excellent job as our videographer for our son's Christening. We were very happy with the results. In addition, she also took several pictures of our family when she was not using the video camera. She has a great eye-- spent a significant amount of time making sure the pictures were the best quality. Guests commented to us that the photographer really spent a lot of time getting great pictures. Bin is dependable and easy to reach. She is also very personable and is a pleasure to work with!

It was real pleasure to get the images from this company. Hassan is a brilliant photographer and the photos that he took for us in our wedding ceremony came out so vivid and beautiful that I couldn't believe; truly the photos were beyond my expectation. This kind of sincere work and dedication is very rare these days; I honestly recommend this company and Hassan to anyone who are looking for some talented and brilliant photographers for any occasion.

I searched for a photographer online and did my research by looking at reviews as well as the websites of several photographers. I was impressed with Jovana’s photos on her website so I booked her for headshots as well as some dance poses. I’m so glad I did all that because Jovana was an absolute pleasure to work with. So professional and made me feel at ease. The images came beautiful and I have so many great shots to choose from. I couldnt be happier!

What can I say about Andrea? From the moment we met her, my now husband and I fell in love with Andrea! She is a true professional, with a warm personality. My family and friends felt comfortable with her throughout the process. When she became aware of the place of our wedding ceremony, she acknowledged that she had never seen it, and immediately accepted an invitation to our rehearsal. She was completely approachable, and respected our wishes, and made recommendations. She chose a variety of places in the garden, and showed so much creativity. She was sensitive to our family dynamics, and respected our non-traditional wedding celebration. She was patient with our more "rowdy and wet" guests :-) and my mother-in-law, and still got the job done. We will hire Andrea next spring for our son's 16th birthday bash--and we know she will deliver excellent service once again! We can hardly wait to see the photos! We love you, Andrea!!!

I have worked with several photographers in the past but have decided to keep going back to Justin. I have done two photoshoots with Justin and was very pleased with the way both sets of pictures came out. He definitely has a good eye for photography - he sees the big picture but also pays attention to the details. He is also a great guy and easy to work with....flexible and responds quickly. I look forward to working with him again.

What an amazing time we had for my brothers surprise birthday party. The photo booth was the highlight of the night. Everyone enjoyed the great selection of props as well as the amazing backdrop. The service was excellent and the pics are clear, crisp, and bright. Of all the photo booth company's we came across Lew's photography fit well into our budget. That's why we're going to recommend them to our family and friends and will continue to hire them for our future events.

We absolutely loved our entire experience with Natalia. She responded very quickly, and stayed in touch after we confirmed the booking, sending us suggestions for the locations, and inquiring about our ideas and themes for the shoot. Her communications before the meeting show her genuine interest in ensuring her clients get what they want and need out of the shoot. It was very easy to spend an hour with Natalia, while taking pictures. There were no awkward moments, and the setting for the photos happened very naturally. Natalia is also really great at giving you a quick sneak peek at the photos during the session, that way if you see that you loved the composition, but hate your face or pose in it, you can quickly re-do it. No later than 12hrs after the shoot, Natalia responded with 120 proofs, of which we could choose 40 to be retouched, and available for download. She returned the final, downloadable photos 3 days after we finalized our selection, which is super fast for photographers. Because Natalia lets you peek at the photos during the shoot and select your favorites out of the preselected 120, you end up with 40 photos that you absolutely love, and you can use all of them (no blinking or hair in your mouth). Overall, we highly recommend Natalia for her professionalism and great photo quality, and hope to have a chance to work with her again!

Do you want to read about a phenomenal photographer? Then let me tell you about Lauren von Eckartsberg Photography. From the start, Lauren made herself available and walked through my surprise engagement photos plan with me. I was admittedly somewhat neurotic when it came to timing, back story to get my fiancée, Christy, to the right spot, and finding backup locations as I wanted to propose outside. Lauren never once complained about my barrage of questions and requests for her opinion. Not only that, she suggested a perfect backup location in case of rain. Certain people have an uncanny sense of what it takes for the best possible finished product, and Lauren is one of those people. On the day of the proposal, Lauren was at the spot far before I got there in order to set up and find the best locations to shoot. Not only that, Lauren was so well disguised that when I first saw her I wasn't sure it was her. I imagined it might be another tourist as she had the wherewithal to take some photos of the other people who were at the location in Central Park. Lauren also helped to clear the people from the area so I could have an intimate moment in one of the world's most visited parks as she kindly asked people to clear the area for a few minutes before Christy and I arrived. It worked like a charm! Now we come to the picture quality. It blew me away! Lauren's photos PERFECTLY captured the wide range of emotion of the moment. From Christy's surprise when she turned to see me on one knee to the pure joy that we both shared as it started to sink in. My big surprise of the day was to have my Christy's family watch from across Wagner Cove (the proposal location in Central Park) and then come surprise her afterwards. Lauren gladly took Christy's mom's contact information and helped them find the location and to locate the perfect spot to witness the event. Lauren also took amazing pictures of the family surprising Christy. The happiness experienced by all is undeniable in Lauren's photos and we'll be able to look back at them and cherish the moment for the rest of our lives. After reviewing the photos we decided looking at other photographers for the wedding was a complete waste of time, and asked Lauren if she would be our wedding photographer. She graciously accepted and we can't wait to work with her again! Take it from a man with strong opinions, Lauren von Eckartsberg is a diamond in the rough when it comes to photographers for hire. If you want someone who goes the extra mile and delivers an unbelievable product, just stop what you're doing and contact Lauren. I guarantee you won't regret it!

Michael is a very talented and dedicated photographer. He understands the client's needs and produces quality and wonderful results. He was the photographer for our non for profit organization Gala. He was non-intrusive to our 200+ guests and floated through the crowd taking portraits and action shots. All of which were spot on in telling the story of our event!

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.
