Patrick receives an 5 star rating from me for exceeding all of my expectations in the areas of customer service, quality of work offered, price, timeliness, and most importantly the finished product. Let me preface my review by stating that I have had extensive prior experience working with photographers in Portland over the years including my year as Mrs. Oregon. When I went to choose a photographer for my fifteen year old daughter's headshot, I had several top photographers in mind. After reviewing his work on his site and finding it to be comparable to the best photographers in PDX, I selected Patrick over the others who were more well known to me due in great part to his flexibility, responsiveness, and customer service skills. (sadly these skills are rarely seen among top notch photographers.) I took a risk with someone I wasn't as familiar with and was pleasantly surprised to have all my expectations exceeded. Let me explain. Personality/Skill....My daughter had no prior experience with posing other than school photos. Additionally, she was apprehensive about going into a studio to take her head shots. Patrick put her at ease, was able to coach her through the basics of posing, and even brought in his makeup artist to give her some tips. To see the quality of her posing improve so much so very quickly over the course of the single session was nothing short of amazing. Makeup/Hair..One thing I was looking for in a photographer was a skilled makeup/hair artist. Not really knowing what to expect, I hoped for the best. It isn't uncommon to get a cookie cutter makeup look for all clients from a makeup artist. I was extremely impressed with Ashley. To begin with she cared enough about her work to ask for photos in advance of my daughter as well as the look she was going for. The final result was nothing short of amazing. She was able to achieve two distinct looks that we provided with precision. She is a perfectionist. It is her personality, however, that was perfect for our needs. She is a young woman who relates to teens extremely well. She brought my daughter out of her shell and put her at ease. I highly recommend paying extra to use her to do your makeup. It was money well spent as she created the foundation of the look that Patrick was able to capture very artistically. Price/Value..The photos are stunning. I didn't want a senior portrait photo being marketed as a headshot. Patrick really knows the local industry and what they are looking for in the various niche markets. We have a great assortment of photos reasonably priced. In my opinion, a photographer who is very skilled will charge a reasonable photo session fee and then charge for each photo selected individually. Don't get sucked into packages as you may end up with only one or two good shots while paying for many mediocre ones. Patrick is confident enough that he will get enough great must have shots that you will love that he will end up making the same or more money from me than a photographer who mandates a package. He doesn't need to force clients into packages. I literally love dozens of the final photos. When all is said and done, I will have paid less than I would have for a package with no assurance of quality. Customer Service..In the end the customer service is the most important part. Patrick was responsive to my initial inquiry and all follow up questions. The proofs were done remarkably fast. I will be scheduling a follow up session to pay for my final selections. He so cared about my daughter's experience, however, that he let her have a few of her favorite shots right away. That is something you would never see from a large photo studio. In short, you can't go wrong with Patrick.

It was great working with the photographers. We were just supposed to have one photographer, but we ended up with two, so more photos! It was an outdoor wedding and the weather didn't fully cooperate; the photographers did a good job working with the elements and caught some nice moments.

Kelly Mooney is absolutely the best photographer our family of 6 has ever used! She is creative, and truly captures the essence of the people she is taking photos of. She has taken 2 of our children's senior photos, family photos and birthday party photos. She has a natural ability to bring out the best in those she is photographing.

Ryan Erlandsen Photography is amazing. From wedding photos to family photos, he's always provided the best customer service and amazing, quality photos. We've used him multiple times in the past 5 years and have referred him to others who have been just as pleased. He's easy to work with, listens to your ideas, wants, needs, and is professional. Our family looks forward to many more photo sessions to capture special moments with Ryan and highly recommend him.

Juan was great to work with. We had a small courthouse wedding with a five minute ceremony, but we wanted to get dressed up and a professional photographer anyway. We had a limited budget, and other photographers came in with lower offers, but we felt more comfortable that Juan would help us with great photographs that we could share with all of the friends and family that couldn't be at the actual ceremony. Juan was on time, excited for us while also being professional, and was able to cater to special requests. Even though we were a small wedding, we felt that Juan gave us the same attention as if we were throwing a huge bash, and we were thrilled with the quality of the photos and the timeliness of his delivery.

Chris at Rip City Photography has helped take our Airbnb management company to The Next Level with his keen eye for detail and technical prowess behind the lens. We’ve been fortunate enough to work with him on several projects this year, and he’s extremely professional, delivering consistent, on-time results every time. A good communicator, Chris ensures he understands our requirements before starting each project; it feels so good to know he’s got it handled, and there’s always excited expectation to see the photos when he’s done with post-production. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a fantastic real estate photographer.

Adam was wonderful to work with. He helped to put our staff at ease and captured some very professional images. He even offered to come and re-shoot any that we needed without charging us extra. The images are exactly what we were looking for. He is both prompt and extremely reasonable. I would recommend him to anyone looking for an experienced photographer. We will be using him going forward.

One of the better photographers I've worked with in the past. Most of the photographers on thumbtack are a scam or aren't actual photographers. I was skeptical at first but was happy to be proved wrong. Will work with again in the future.

We had family portraits done outside when our son turmed one and loved them. A second session with Jennifer for photos of our 2 week old daughter. They came out gorgeous and exceeded our expectations. We this company a 3rd time during her baptism. I will be using this company again for family portraits when my daughter turns One.

Roo is our go-to photographer for all of our family's major life events! From pregnancy photos, to family pictures, and photos for our family Christmas card, he always knows how to capture the moment! Aside from being GREAT with babies, he is extremely patient and caring when it comes to getting everyone in position for the perfect shot. Best of all, he's extremely down-to-earth while maintaining professionalism. I never feel like he's rushing us or not receptive to the type of "mood" we're trying to capture. I'm pretty particular of what I want from our photo shoots and he is GREAT at being very accommodating and understanding! I wouldn't recommend anyone else for family photos!! Trust me- I've worked with 3 other photographers and he's hands down, the best!!!!

Sarah Haimes has truly been a dream to work with. I started booking her travel dates and can't be even more thankful for having her be the one to document very precious moments of my life. She is primarily a wedding photographer, but OMG you know it's talent that no matter the time of day, or the location, or the genre of portraiture. Because Shuttergram Photography PREFORMS. That is the true beauty of working with a professional! Shuttergram Photography stands out from other photographers in the industry because of her unique eye and artistic approach to all sessions. She has strong work with single subjects all the way to group photos for families or wedding portraits. But what really gets me is her artistic editing and knowing how to highlight your best features that make you feel like a million bucks. I'm a proud client and supporter of Shuttergram Photography. And I've been contemplating on a vow renewal just so I can get wedding portraits with her artistic vision!

I had a wonderful experience working with Hrach. I had not previously used Thumbtack for photos, so I was a bit nervous and unsure of what to expect. From the beginning, Hrach was very helpful and calmed my concern. He asked for example photos of what I was looking for (yoga), helped me pick out a spot that met our requirements, and then was extremely professional and relaxed during the shoot. The whole experience of the shoot was very efficient - he was ready before I even arrived, and had excellent suggestions of photo locations - some of which were very unique and I would not have thought of on my own. The quality of the photos he returned was excellent - just as I was looking for. The qualities in the example photos I wished for were strong in these images, and I really appreciated his outstanding communication and positive attitude. I would highly recommend working with him as your photographer.

I used E&B for professional headshots/portraits and it was an overall great experience. I love the resulting images and it was an overall great experience. Chris makes you feel comfortable in front of the camera and you can tell that he is comfortable behind it. I am definitely using E&B as my go to photography company for any future portraits or family photo sessions.

Stephan was very hardworking and professional before, through and after our photo-shoot session. He was on time and gave us a lot of good suggestions for how to pose. His communication skills are great and he understood our wants and needs very well. We were in a rush to get the pictures and he accommodated us by working to reduce the turn-around time on the photographs. The photographs came out very well and have since been used for professional brochures for my husband.

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.
