Everything about Harry is GREAT! I would book him any time again without a doubt! He is the best photographer you could have for any event! He is a true professional, stays in contact, respects your wishes, and works with them. At the same time he has a vision, he knows how to talk to people, how to guide them. He has a very fun personality, too. The bridal party loved him! They took fun pictures later the night having a blast. He was always there to catch the right moment. He also brought an assistant with him. We felt very good and relieved having him on our wedding day to catch all the special moments. Harry thank you so much for everything, you are fabulous!!!

Travis was the perfect photographer for our family. The kids adored him which made them smile without having to be prompted to do so and made for a lot of great candid shots! He is very personable and draws out the best in the whole family. What a great guy! We also appreciated his flexibility with the time and location we chose. He has a great eye for getting the right shots. We are so pleased with our photos. It couldn't have gone any better! If we could give more than five stars ... we absolutely would! We are hoping to have Travis do our Christmas cards soon!!

Chloe did a great job taking family pictures of my husband and I and our 9 month old daughter. She knew exactly where to go and how to keep our little one happy throughout the shoot. She is very professional and our pictures turned out great! It was so nice and easy to be able to download them offline. I especially appreciated how quickly she delivered the final photos. I would highly recommend Chloe to anyone!

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!

Denise did a wonderful job taking outdoor photos for our family! She was very helpful in planning the photo shoot and she chose a beautiful location with perfect evening light. We had three generations in our photos. She brought chairs to accommodate the grandparents and she managed to capture great shots of three young (and not so cooperative) kids! We were all very pleased with the pictures! She is affordable, professional and very responsive. I highly recommend her!

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!

There are not enough nice words to describe this photographer! Jay and his wife did my wedding photography. Not only did they drive from Columbus to Norwalk but they arrived early and stayed late. Jay and his wife were more than just photographers, they were a true help to everything that day. They had a wedding day survival pack filed with everything that a bride and bridesmaids may need (even feminine products). Jay was very patient and attempted every photo that I wanted. He also caught moments on camera that I would have never thought to catch. I could go on and on about this photographer but to sum it up.....He is the best!! Thanks Jay for capturing my day!

I had the pleasure of watching Beth do a wedding shoot from start to finish this weekend! She is the ultimate professional!!! My family is in the photography business and I have been to many weddings as an assistant, Beth knows her stuff and captured every minute detail perfectly! It was an honor getting to know her and watching her work! You can't go wrong by hiring Beth to photograph your cherished events in life!

    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!

    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.
