Harry was very professional and was not only punctual but early to the event. He went above and beyond, creating a very relaxed atmosphere and was very open to suggestions on shots. His creative positioning on pictures was breathtaking. We could not have chosen a better photographer for our wedding!

I literally cannot even express how amazing Travis was during the entire photo shoot process. Everything from making us feel comfortable and open to different poses. It was clear from his sample pictures that he knows what he's doing, and his price was completely reasonable. I also loved his business model how we got every single picture he took instead of just being forced to choose a few like most photographers do. Overall, I can't complain about one thing. He was flexible during scheduling (even though I was running late) and wonderful during the whole editing process (he would send me surprise sneak peak pictures while editing). Everything was flawless. I would highly recommend his services!

Kelly is an absolutely amazing photographer. We were overjoyed with the final prints that she did for my fiancée and I. She is professional and attentive behind the Lens and so much fun and comfortable to be with during all of the times in between. We are so happy we found her. Photography is very important to us and having the skill, talent and personality that Kelly brought to the table was a dream!

Chloe was absolutely amazing. Not only is she an amazing photographer, she's a fabulous human being. She fit seemlessly into our day, and with a group of only 9 people, that's really something. I couldn't recommend her more.

Cory and his wife have been BRILLIANT to work with. Our initial consultation left us feeling excited and confident about choosing them as our wedding photographers. For the package, you can't beat their price! Cory was happy to break the fees into payments for us in any way we wanted and his system was very easy to use. When we did our engagement photos, they brought lots of energy and ideas; ensuring the final product was just what we wanted! I'm really looking forward to having them at our wedding and seeing what amazing photos they catch for us!

We could not have chosen a better photographer for our wedding. Denise was amazing in every way. She was so sweet, very attentive to what we wanted out of our wedding photos, and went above and beyond what was expected of her. I have nothing but good things to say about her. It was an honor to have her photograph our special day, and we look forward to working with her again for maternity shoots, family portraits, whatever life may bring us. Denise and Willow Ridge Photography come highly recommended.

Tony and Angie captured every moment and then some! Hiring them to be our wedding photographers was one of our best decisions! They drove all the way up to Wisconsin, they stayed on schedule, they were always smiling, they didn't miss a beat and their photographs are stunning! My wife and I have don't just have a photo book of our special day...but we also have multiple canvas prints around the house! We love our photos and the experience of working with Buckeye Photo will never be forgotten!

Brenda has a relaxed, yet professional approach to the photography session. My High School Senior was reluctant to have senior portraits taken and Brenda helped him feel comfortable to the point that he very much enjoyed his photography session. Because Brenda took the time to create a comfortable environment for my son, the photos truly reflect him and his personality. The "backdrops" she chose for him of the Arena District were perfect and the resulting photos look natural and not like he was posing for a picture. I would highly recommend Brenda for your photography wants and needs!

Michelle recently photographed our daughter's wedding. The pictures were beyond our expectations. Michelle was on time, unobtrusive and creative. With 2 previous unpleasant photography experiences with someone else, we were hesitant but Michelle did such a great job we would highly recommend her to friends and family.

Angie is a GREAT photographer. She is great with kids, because who can really get a toddler to do what there told? Her pictures come out great and is very easy to work with. She had done my daughters newborn, 1yr and 2yr old pics. As long as she is in business we'll be having her take our photos

    We were blessed to have Madison as our family photographer! We hadn’t had family portraits done since our son was born, so I wasn’t sure what to expect. Madison was not only ready to go when we got there, but she had also scoped out the best spots for our photos. She also brought some things to enhance our photos like a cute blanket and a bubble machine to entertain our 1-year-old. Madison was also understanding and flexible if we needed to take a break, when our son broke down, she didn’t push to get the photos done and was very patient with us. I felt very comfortable with Madison, she was professional, but also easy to get along with. She was also easy to communicate with before and after the photo shoot, and the turn around time for getting our photos back was super quick! I was also impressed with the quality of the photos, they turned out beautifully! I cannot say enough good things about this photographer! We will definitely be using her again, and recommending her out. Thanks Madison :)

    I used Sumi Patel Photography for some amazing college graduation photos. The photographer showed up right on time and spent the next two hours with my family walking between locations on my college campus and helping us take a vast variety of photos. She was very responsive to what we wanted in our photos and helped us pose. The final product was well edited and looked very nice. Would recommend!

    Amy did a terrific job photographing both my engagement and wedding photos. She's incredibly passionate and caring about the work and people she works with. I'm normally fearful of getting in front of the camera, but Amy took time to encourage me and make me laugh so that I could look and feel my best. I definitely recommend her if you're looking for a photographer!!

    Fabulous session! A professionally trained photographer who can capture the essence of personality. Eunice put me completely at ease and I have not had positive experiences with previous photo shoots. She made me look beautiful.

      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.
