Introduction: I offer the best value and have the most 5-star reviews of any photographer on Thumbtack. I also have 50+ more Google reviews, and the photography to back it all up! You owe it to yourself to visit my website harryacosta.com to see hundreds of photo samples and see what everyone has to say about their experience with me. Many photographers charge separate fees for photo sessions and digital files, so their initial quote looks lower than mine. I charge a flat fee for each session and the hi-res, digital, professionally-edited photography. Prints are extra, but I've done my research to find a photo lab that only works with professional photographers and delivers the best quality prints to compliment my photography at a fantastic price!

Headshot Photography

Harry did an amazing job with the photo shoot, I managed to get close to a 100 photos with different angles and varieties and it was hard (which was good) to pick one favorite, we managed to get so much variety even less than an hour and he agreed to do lots of editing with a very good cost, I already told Harry that I will be doing portraits soon among other photography projects, Highly recommends!

Wedding and Event Photography

Harry is a true professional. He has knowledge of the various areas to capture the perfect ambiance, worked closely with us throughout our special day, and was on time from beginning to end. I would definitely hire Harry again for any event where a photographer is needed.

Wedding and Event Photography

Harry was very quick to respond and was flexible to my changes and a baby’s schedule. This was a family reunion. We did outside and inside pictures of family groups as well as group photos. Our youngest member was 5 months old. Harry said he had never photographed a child this young; he handled the baby like he had been working with children forever. I liked the fact Harry came to my home in advance to check out the settings and he timed it to see what the light would be like at the time of the photo shoot. We liked Harry’s personality and his professionalism and plan to use him again to document our family gatherings.

Portrait Photography

Harry was an absolute professional. He made every step very easy and the final photos were excellent. His cost was very reasonable. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for an overall great experience.

Portrait Photography

Harry was absolutely amazing! I was very pessimistic and thought I would end up unhappy with all my photos based on my history with other photographers, but Harry was different. He instructed my boyfriend and I to do certain poses and suggessted different backgrounds for us; which worked out very well. When I received the photos back and edited in a timely manner, I was very pleased with them. I was excited to have a lot more photos that I liked compared to other shoots I've done with different photographers. He has a talented, creative outlook with photography and his editing skills are impeccable. I highly recommend Harry.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    • Session quote includes hi-resolution, professionally-edited, digital files that you can post on social media, or the side of a building. • I don't pay for rankings on Thumbtack, which helps me keep my costs down. • Day rates and quantity price breaks are negotiable. PRINT COSTS 4”x6” $2.00; $8.00 for 5 5”x7” $3.75; $15.00 for 5 6”x9” $4.50; $18.00 for 5 8x10” $13.25; $60.00 for 5 8x12” $14.75; $65.00 for 5 12”x16” $19.50; $85.00 for 5

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    My success is due to putting more effort than most into everything I do. I like to spend some candid time with the subject — presenting ideas, interviewing, and taking photos. I can help pose you, but I strive to capture natural reactions from all of my clients, especially those who are camera shy. I also spend extra time with each photo, adjusting detail, color, and blemishes. PLEASE NOTE: Although I do photo retouching, but I do not do reshaping. • Digital proofs are delivered online (plus a few edited photos) within 48 hours, so you know what to expect when they're all done. • Session price includes a dozen files for each hour we photograph (Excluding events and weddings) • Final files are usually completed after 2 weeks • Printing is extra, but worth it. My lab is inexpensive, and the absolute best quality.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I majored in visual communication at The Ohio State University. I am an art director of 20 years and an internationally-published music journalist, but a photographer first. Becoming a people person, capturing the perfect composition, mastering the technical aspects of the camera, creating an artistic style of retouching, comes from years of experience of engaging with people on both sides of the camera.
