Scottie did our Wedding pictures and was there from the time we started setting up to when we cleaned up. He even came the day before and took pictures during the rehersal. I always enjoy having our pictures done with Scottie. He has become out family photogher. From taking pictures of the whole family aging from 6months to 45 he makes you very comfortable.

We met Christina the night of our rehearsal dinner, and loved her right off the bat. Camera in hand, Christina snapped photos of our families and friends, having conversations with people in between shots. She made everyone feel so comfortable that it didn't really phase anyone that she was taking pictures. As a result of her outgoing and loving personality, photography on the day of our wedding felt like a breeze. Photography was a huge priority for us, and I had a specific idea of what I wanted our photos to look like. Christina worked with us and our wedding party to come up with creative shots and poses that would capture our personalities and relationship. She did an incredible job, and we would highly recommend her!

Vanny took holiday photos of my family, and they turned out perfect! She was very punctual, professional, and quick to get our images to us. We have a small baby who can be a challenge to photograph, but Vanny was so patient and good with her! She also worked wonders with the lighting in our house and gave the pictures the warm, cozy feeling I was hoping for. The photos turned out even better than I imagined, and I will definitely be using Vanny again!

The pictures came out beautiful, chapel pictures with my family are timeless and I also received candids from the cocktail hour and reception. Seeing the priceless moments of dancing and hugging and laughing will be cherished throughout our years. Very professional and enjoyable to have around both of our families, with many people from our family hugging the photographers at the end of the night! The editing time was short and sweet at two weeks, right around the time we came home from our Honey moon! Ross was very accommodating and helped with any questions I had. I would highly recommend this company! He has a keen eye for unscripted joy in shared moments! We also received a video of the wedding and reception that was truly magical and romantic. The camera angles were smooth and blended well from one shot to the next. We love it! Thank you guys again we are eternally grateful!

I contacted Justin for his services for my mother's retirement party. As a family, we could not have been more pleased with the outcome of the photos that captured every important moment of this monumental occasion. He worked the entire night; I don't recall him even taking a break from taking photos throughout the event. We had pletha of photos to choose from and my mother was able to create a photobook from his pictures alone. His customer service and professionalism was consistent and outstanding. He prices were also unbeatable. He was very easy to communicate with and I would recommend him for all events.

I hired CBirdsPhotos for our large family outdoor portrait. We had 16 people in all, and she must have taken 500 photos! She stayed until we were out of sunlight, way beyond anyone's expectations! I had gotten her business card from a nurse friend of mine so I wasn't sure what to expect. We all ordered prints from her online website and paid a mere fraction of what we've paid yearly through Olan Mills, and the photos are gorgeous! I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her services to anyone!

Diana was very helpful setting the photo shoot . The photos are absolutely amazing !! She took time to set up all shots and got some awesome shots of my son , who has special needs she did a phenomena job, with him . I will definitely recommend and use her again for any photo opportunities in the future . She did an outstanding job was very professional and yet put me and my family at ease . The cost for the service I recieved and the shots she took is an excellent value , and worth every penny . Would recommend her to anyone out there who needs a photographer . In my opinion there aren't enough stars on here to rate her properly .

Last September my sister and I decided that we wanted to do a sister photo shoot and have professional pictures made as a Christmas gift for our mom. Our main goal for the photo shoot was to get professional, high quality photos made so that our mom could have nice up to date pictures of us as young adults to add to her collection of photos of the two of us throughout the years. After researching and speaking with several photographers in the Chattanooga area, my sister and I decided to hire Ashli to do our photo shoot. We had a great experience working with Ashli, and she certainly helped us achieve the goal that we set out for the photo shoot in the beginning. Ashli is professional, down to earth, friendly, and pleasant to work with. Ashli listened to the vision and ideas that my sister and I had for our photo shoot and she worked with us to achieve our goal. She answered any questions that we had, responded to our emails and phone calls in a timely manner, and offered suggestions when we wanted her professional opinion about various aspects of the photo shoot. When we received the finalized photos from our shoot, we were very pleased with the quality of them. Most importantly, our mom absolutely loves the photos from the shoot and she continues to cherish them to this day. Overall, my sister and I were very pleased with our experience working with Ashli, and we would definitely recommend Ashli Gene Photography to anyone who is looking to have nice, professional pictures made for a reasonable price.

We were looking for someone to take our family photos, and I'm so very glad we chose Anthony!! He was able to make my family feel at ease, and captured some beautiful pictures. Anthony is very easy-going and listened to what we were hoping to get out of our pictures, and he did exactly that, plus some! I am thrilled with how they turned out and can't wait to do it again!

      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.
