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!

Me and my girlfriend went to a broadway show. Got out a little late but she was able to follow us taking picture until I was able to propose at time square. My now fiance didn't know a thing. Great photographer. Great pictures and just what I needed.

We hired Joe to do a family portrait session for us in early August. From beginning communications to the end result, we were thoroughly impressed by Joe, and we would highly recommend him for anything and will look forward to using him again. Joe was extremely professional, timely in communication as well as production of our photos, and helpful in recommending locations and creative ideas for the shoot. In addition, Joe listened to our ideas and made the utmost effort to see those ideas come to life during the shoot. We were thankful to have found him and are very satisfied with the overall experience. Good luck in your future ventures Joe!

Lizzie was amazing! The entire experience of our holiday photos was great from initial contact through the final images. Lizzie is prompt and thorough in her communications. She is very thoughtful in her preparations as well giving consideration to location and bringing some great props to make the photos extra special. She was great with our 1 year old and our large, stubborn dog! We plan to use Lizzie for all of our family photography needs in the future and would recommend everyone else do so as well!

Jeff is an exceptional photographer. family pictures can be a bit overwhelming especially with 2 kids under 5, but he made the whole process smooth. He gave good direction, was pretty patient and outgoing with the kids. The pictures are beautifully candid, you can feel the emotions in them. Can't wait to work with him again!

We love Emily. I hired her for a family portrait photo session and she worked well with my toddler and newborn baby. She is very professional and pleasant person, she listened and gave suggestions of how we can have our photos taken. My husband and I were both happy with the photos she delivered after 2 days. We will definitely hire her again for more photo sessions in the future.

I honestly cannot say enough about Marijana and how great she is. My fiance and I, originally from North Carolina, were visiting New York City for the weekend and wanted engagement/portrait type photos while visiting; so we hired Marijana just a few weeks prior to our visit. From the time we met Marijana, she made the session and process so easy for us! We absolutely loved it! And LOVE how the photos turned out. She was so easy to work with! Her attention to detail and finding the perfect light made our photos perfect and we are so pleased with our experience. Not only that, we also feel like we made a new friend in New York City! Thank you so much, Marijana! We now have pictures that will last a lifetime! -Jenna and Erik

Kevin was wonderful to work with! Very easy to set up the family photo shoot. He arrived on time with all his equipment. He was very patient and engaging with my three little ones (5, 3, & 2 years old) as well as the dog! He captured everything I had asked him too and delivered the pictures on time! Such a relief to not have to chase a photographer down to get your photos. Thank you Kevin for taking such perfect family photos of us at our neighborhood NYC spots. We will forever remember our time here thanks to you!

After looking at Jovana's portfolio I knew immediately she would be perfect for the photos I imagined, and she was. These are by far some of the most beautiful photographs we have of our little family and really exceeded my expectations. Meeting and working with Jovana in Central Park was an absolute pleasure. Thanks again, Christina, Thierry and Ange

Couldn't have asked for a better person or photographer to take pictures on one of the most important days of my life. I contacted Matt to take photos from afar of my proposal. He met me at the park before hand and we went over what I was looking for and he walked me through where he thought we could get the best pictures and truly capture the special moment. He was a complete professional and was very easy to talk with as well. He sent me the link to my pictures within a few hours and I couldn't be happier with how they came out. Matt will certainly be my first call in the future if I need any photographs and I highly recommend him.

Laura was amazing! She took the time to get every shot just right. While other photographers might keep shooting and rush a bit, Laura slowed everthing down until the shot was perfect; lighting, position, vibe, etc. I felt in excellent hands with Laura. I really relaxed, which is key in regard to getting good shots that look like me. She made me feel that her goal was to make me comfortable in order to get the best shots possible! She is a sweetheart. She’s been great at doing light retouching. Nothing drastic. My agents are thrilled, and so am I. I will definitely go back to Laura!!!

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.

From the first reply to the last update on how to download the pictures everything went perfectly. Adam was very professional, courteous, but also relaxed and fun. Made all of us smile and enjoy taking a group family photos with 11 adults a child and a dog (was not planned, but she insisted :) ). Photos came out just great. I highly recommend Adam for your next photo shoot.

My experience with Natalia Wajda Photography was enjoyable and unique. It was wonderful to work with a professional who values you and your desires! She listened to my ideas while still incorporating her own artistic vision. I had one shoot in particular with Natalia Wajda and one of my friends that was the most fun I've ever had while having pictures taken. It was so relaxed and simply FUN! We found ourselves really comfortable with Ms. Wajda as our photographer. As a result, the photos turned out great! I can't wait to have more inspiring and fun shoots with Natalia Wajda Photography!!!

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.
