Michael took individual and group photos of our family to include in our family reunion invites. The ages of our family members ranged from very young to quite seasoned. Michael took the time necessary to bring out the best smile or the most becoming pose for each photo. As a result, his photos made our invitations more personal and heartfelt. Michael took pride in helping us produce a keepsake invitation.

Not only will Ashley be our lifetime photographer, she and her family are going to be our lifetime friends. Thank you so much!!

Deepika arrived promptly at our home and instantly put our children at ease. She was patient with the little ones, and worked quickly to get some great pictures before they got tired. I was very pleased with how fast she got the finished photos to us; unusual for photographers, in my experience.

Casey was an absolute delight to work with during our family photoshoot. She was patient and understanding with our 1 and 3 year old grandsons. She kept our family of 13 organized as she created various poses for each shot. Casey was able to capture our family time and fun in several action shots. She was very professional and I could tell she loved what she was doing. Her prices are excellent. I would recommend Casey to anyone who is looking to capture special moments in pictures!

We have had Arnaldo as our family photographer for 5 years now. He is such an amazing and talented photographer, capable of capturing authentic moments, which is exactly what you want to keep memories of your family. We had having him for our Christmas shots, for maternity shots, and for all our kids and family photos. He has a special eye and patience with the kids. Arnaldo has the ability to not miss a second of the moment in an incredible way. His energy and passion comes across his job. Also he is so easy-going, respectful and fun in the way he blends in at the event, that you or your guests will not realize they’re being photographed, from funny faces, to wiping away tears, dancing, genuine smiles and profound gestures. We strongly recommend him as a skilled photographer to truly capture the essence of your life moments providing you the best images.

Ronald McDonald House C.
Verified review

Angenise generously donated her time, on multiple occasions, to photograph the families staying at The Ronald McDonald House. It is our mission to provide a sense of normalcy to families with critically ill children - and what is more normal than family pictures around the holidays. Angenise brings her kind personality with her when volunteering at the House and makes interacting with families from across the world seem simple.

Absolutely love the photographs that were done. Excellent quality. Best I have ever had. My family and I appreciate all the hard work that was put into keeping our memories in tact. We had a set budget and was more excited to see that the photographer did not go over that budget. AMAZING is all I can say and will send all my friends and family here.

Tom was wonderful to work with. He was very responsive to emails and texts and was very punctual and patient with us during the actual preparations and reception itself. We had a desi wedding so a lot of the songs were not in English, but Tom did a great job finding our requested music and playing them accordingly during the night. He is also very easy to talk to and has a calming presence, so many of my family members enjoyed his company when giving speeches. Also, his price is fair for the amount of work he puts in. If you are looking for a dj for your wedding he is the one!

Cara was a pleasure to work with and had fun with my silly request to have pictures taken in the spray park. From what I've seen of the "sneak peek" of our photos they are going to be gorgeous! I would highly recommend her since she is one of the few photographers that still does prints.

There is nothing better than a photographer who 1.) understands what you need as a bride and 2.) is willing to do whatever it takes to see that you get more than you could dream of. Melyssa was my photographer, but she also helped me plan, make decisions, and even vetted questions for me in the moments I needed it the most. She had all the knowledge and experience to help me figure out what kinds of photos I wanted and made sure I got them. I felt so comfortable asking for what I wanted and I didn’t have to just go off of a standard “this is what you get” list. She made it feel like my best friend was just following me around with a camera on my wedding day. Could not be more pleased with her work! And I’m so thankful for her artistic eye.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.
Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
