Kristi was such an amazing photographer. My husband does not like posed pictures but she made it so fun and comfortable for us. She was so prompt with all of our editing and getting our pictures back to us in more than a timely fashion. On our wedding day, she captured every single moment. As a bride and groom we were unable to be everywhere the whole night and we will have those pictures forever to keep reminding us how special and magical our night was. Kristi was also full of ideas and super flexible when it came to giving her my ideas. She was truly amazing to work with and I can't wait to do it again at my sisters wedding in July! THANKS SO MUCH KRISTI, YOU KNOW HOW TO MAKE A BRIDE'S DREAM COME TRUE!!

We had family photos taken by Alex and Landon and it was a great experience. We were worried about the price when we first saw it, but they actually include things in that price that other photographers don't tell you about up-front. It ended up being cheaper than most other studios in town. While we were there, I mentioned that I was going to need headshots for work in the near future. They worked with us and I was able to get the headshots done at the same time. They did a great job and they were really fun to work with. The kids even had fun while we were there. We plan to hire Alex and Landon for the next set of photos we need since they are so good to work with.

    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.
