I cannot say enough great things about our experience with Mary!! Mary and Ali photographed our intimate NYC wedding - following us from our hotel, to city hall, to our evening rooftop reception. They asked us from the beginning to think of them as friends rather than photographers, and by the end of the day they were great friends indeed!! They attended to every detail, guided us to get the best shot, and made us and our guests feel effortlessly glamorous and comfortable. They were both extremely professional, clearly talented, and responsive to our preferences. It was obvious that they cared as much about our day as we did! I highly, highly recommend their services and would hire them again in a heartbeat!

As a project manager for a magazine, I have to book photographers in cities across the country, not knowing anything about them. For us at the magazine, it's always a risky operation because we don't have an established relationship with most of the photographers, plus we're always under tight deadlines, AND we can't physically be at these photoshoots. When we found JoAnne, we booked her that day for a shoot the following day. When I spoke with her she was so professional and so bubbly I felt like I could trust her with our clients immediately. This totally put my mind at ease considering all the bad experiences we've had in the past. When we received the photos from JoAnne, the quality of photos was amazing and the shots were exactly what we needed. JoAnne even went above and beyond the count that we asked for which gave us a lot of variety. Our magazine looks great because of J Richards! If we have to book a photographer in this area again, we will be coming straight to her.

I cannot even express my gratitude for Cheyanna ! Her work is absolutely stunning and blew my mind! I received a lot of quotes before making my decision to hire her but her website images and work is what made me decide for Cheyanna. The price is absolutely fair and she spent all day with us! I have used other photographers in the past but no one has ever been this responsive and understanding. Not only did the photos come way sooner than expected but she also let me know when which is something I appreciate even more. She also sent a sneak peak! I never had anyone do that before and this was even more appreciated. I had other photographers where I constantly had to ask about when my photos would come back and Cheyanna was the opposite! She truly impressed us with her work and communication throughout. Her product is first class and it was also great to spend the day with her as she made us feel comfortable throughout. Don’t even think about hiring someone else and save you the hassle !!!

Steven did an amazing job! You can tell that he's very dedicated to his work. Our first phone conversation he said "if you don't look good and I don't look good" and I've never heard a photographer say that. Most of the photographers that I've met are doing their job for the money, but I can't say the same about Steven. He spoke about has craft with passion. He made me feel so comfortable, and he knows exactly what he's doing. If anyone is looking for a photographer who specializes in headshots, reach out to Steven immediately, you will not be disappointed. Thank you so much Steven!! I'll definitely be recommending you to all my fellow actors.

Mr.Marc Solomon was punctual and polite. He was courteous, professional and arrived prior to the start of the event. He made time to take photos with special attention to family photos with scenic backgrounds provided by the hall. He displayed an array of knowledge in photography which family members repeatedly complimented. He offers package deals and is willing to work with you and your photography needs. I would definitely recommend him to others as well as acquire his services again. Thank you for making my event a memorable one. LRod.

Kevin is a great photographer- if your looking for your photos to capture moments in time that have emotion and tell a story then do not hesitate and have Kevin be your photographer !! I was so busy with all the guests pulling me in so many directions at my milestone Birthday Party that I could not get a pulse of what was happening - now I know exactly how my party turned out - not by what all the guest told me, but more so, by all the photos that Kevin took-from the candid shots to the posed shots I can see and feel all the love- laughs, and good times all were having!! Another bonus is Kevin gets it- you tell him what your looking for and he makes it happen and he is responsible and a gentleman!! Your the best Kevin!!

I have been using Beth Madison Photography for my family photos for several years, and I couldn’t be happier. I have 3 girls ranging in age from 22months to 10 years old and we've worked with Beth on birth, christening, first communion and other family events! Beth connected with my girls right away, put them at ease and got them giggling. Needless to say with 3 girls Beth has an abundance of patience a very important trait in dealing with a chaotic environment! At our shoots, she was meticulous in her preparation acknowledging in working with children the importance of keeping the actually photo shoot short and concise. Beth did a combination of candid and posed shots and always went above and beyond to make everything work together even with last minute changes! She always delivered beautiful images of my children happy and being themselves. What’s more, she gave us lots of time and personal attention and I was involved in every step of the process if that's what I preferred. Otherwise, she was very happy to make suggestions referring back to her extensive experience in the art of photography. When I first started looking for a photographer, I considered using larger photographer companies and high-end portrait photo chains. I wanted something more personal for my family, I found Beth Madison Photography, and I’m thrilled with the results and will continue to use Beth to capture other family milestones in the future.

I loved every minute of my session with Philicia. I'm a tough critic when it comes to my pictures because I've taken pictures with a lot of photographers, but she was the best photographer I've ever had by far. Not only was she great at giving suggestions but she also combined both of our visions which seems to be really hard for photographers. It's either they don't give any direction at all or they overpower you with their suggestions, but Philicia did neither. She was the perfect balance. I didn't even know my pictures could come out so great! It was truly art. My portraits came out BEAUTIFULLY! My family loved them and I wouldn't shoot portraits with anyone else. She was simply wonderful and I can't wait to shoot again. My birthday's coming up and already we're thinking of great locations and outfits. I'm so excited to do more!

JUNE 30, 2015 was our wedding day, not only that but it was the celebration of our 8 year anniversary with our closest friends and family. Raul captured so many beautiful pictures and I can feel the feeling I had at that exact moment when I look at them. He captured not only pictures of us but our family/friends drinking and laughing. We enjoyed working with him and he's so easy going. We can't wait to see all of the photos!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH RAUL.

He fulfilled all of my requests, and all of the pictures came out perfect. Love his excellent work! I would highly recommend Mark Milch as a photographer, and would use him again

I am so glad I found Natalia. As a family we have worked with many photographers in the past, but Natalia is special in many ways: she is good at capturing the special bond among the family, she also takes extra time to scout the venue before the session, she is also so responsive. We are super impressed with the photos and would love to hire her in the future to document our family's growth. I recommend anyone who is looking for naturally beautiful pictures to consider Natalia.

Michael was so creative. He had unique ideas, was kind, made us feel comfortable, and was able to capture smiles and expressions that were real and natural. I would suggest him for family/ lifestyle photos, fashion photography and gif anyone rob is working on a blog. He was amazing.

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.
