Ray was nothing short of AWESOME! From the day we hired him as our photographer to now, he was been very easy to contact. I don't think I ever waited longer than a couple hours for a response. A few hours before our engagement shoot, I decided to add a location, and Ray was accommodating (and even told us about a great lake to shoot at-- great photos!). Some photographers would have said "sorry", but Ray was excited with the new idea. Fast forward to the wedding day.... it rained!!! (A bride's worst nightmare) However, Ray and the second photographer, Laurie, made the BEST of the space, and the photos turned out stunning! When there was a break in the rain, they took the opportunity to go outside with us. We even have some great photos with a simple black umbrella. I literally have hundreds (a couple thousand, really) photos from the entire day... All the special moments were captured. We even had access to our entire photo collection about a week and a half after the wedding date. I recommend Ray to shoot other weddings! (I wanted add some photos straight from the wedding photo gallery, but I cannot figure out how to make them smaller than 10MB!)

The Elite-Best-Of-The-Best Photographers! My family has had the privilege of experiencing many sessions with Laurinda as our photographer and each time; she delivers perfection in her ability to bring our kids' faces to life. She goes above and beyond to make picture posing fun, which miraculously guarantees outstanding results out of even our most challenging children; when most photographers would simply give-up on them to just collect the paycheck, Laurinda uses her infinate bag of tricks to create a magical moment that becomes wall-worthy for months and years to come. There is a reason that we simply cannot do without Me+3 so we try to book our appointment for photo sessions every opportunity we get. We have been thrilled with every session and are proud that our very best-selves are preserved for an eternity. In addition to our family photos, I also had some extra individual portraits done for a recent election. It certainly may have been the photos that sealed that victory but who knows; all I can say is they definitely contributed positively. Thank you Laurinda and Me+3 Photography for always making me look so damn good! Ryan Bent

I'm from California and was heading out to Nashville for vacation + to propose to my girlfriend (now fiancé). After a ton of hours researching and looking for the perfect photographer, I'm so happy I came across Michael. When I reached out, he was very quick to respond, very professional, reasonable pricing, super nice guy in person and on time at the set destination. Since Michael and I didn't officially meet until after the proposal, I actually snapped a pic of my fiancé and I that day so he knew what we were wearing and who to look out for. He was so good at capturing our special day. He caught the proposal just perfectly and then we snapped a bunch of pics afterwards. Did I mention he's quick? He had all of our pictures up on his website within a couple hours (end of day) and told us we could choose any/all photos to be edited. Given the extensive research that I did, that's very uncommon. Most photographers allow you to choose maybe 6 photos. Anyways, we chose a bunch of pics and he had them all edited within the same day! Such an exciting experience and hands down I suggest having Michael help capture every little detail on camera!

I had the opportunity to use Moultry Photography services for capturing my newborn son, daughter, and family photos. I am so glad that I did. She was very professional and had such a way with details. You can tell that she has passion in what she does. My baby was getting very fussy, but she allowed us the time to console him as she was very patient. We received the link to download our pictures and fell in love instantly. We recommend Moultry Photography to anyone looking for great quality photography that are not just your norm boring poses and backgrounds. I can't wait to use her services again.

Working with Bob was such a joy and a blessing! My parents live out of the country, so I typically only get to see them twice a year. Since they and my brothers were coming to town for a short visit, my husband and I figured it would be a good idea to get a family photo. Times like these are precious and nothing is promised, so I’m glad that I trusted Bob with capturing our memories! Bob responded to us quickly and was able to accommodate us on extremely short notice. I had a bunch of questions upfront and he answered them all quickly and without batting an eye. Then, when we met with him for the shoot, he was patient with us despite the heat and despite the fact that my family and I were coming up with a shot list (practically) on the fly...we wanted candid and staged photos—he made sure to get both. Finally, we got our photos quickly (almost magically so) and we LOVE them! Check us out on his website under “Randolph”. I’m sure you’ll love them too. Bob is efficient, communicative, kind, talented, and surprisingly well-priced given all that he does. I highly recommend him. You won’t regret it!

Describing how INCREDIBLE Kyle is is like describing the vastness of the universe: no words can compare to such greatness! When I was in search of some new family portraits, I knew I wanted superior quality and a modern style, but of course at a price I could reason. After weeks of getting no where after countless let downs of potential photographers, a mentor of mine suggested Kyle Beerman. Known for his enthusiasm, creativity, and empathy, Kyle came across as a brother who I've never had but have always longed for when we first met to discuss my wants and desires for my photos. He was professional in his approach to the job, but personal in his approach to our relationship. We were able to set up our shoot and he took care of everything! I value someone who knows their craft so well, they make others feel confident and prepared along with them. Kyle fits this bill to a tee. We were able to narrow down our ideas for the shoot and execute it all within budget. I recommend Kyle for all of your photo and video needs. He will exceed your expectations and treat you like family rather than a client. And to top it all off, he even sent me a hand written card in the mail a few weeks after our shoot wishing my family and I a happy New Year! We love you Kyle!

I hate having my picture taken, but was required to have a headshot by my company. I did a lot of searching online and was referred to Nashville Corporate Photography. I worked with a photographer named Nicole and she surprisingly made the whole process enjoyable! I LOVE my new pics, my husband loves them, and I get lots of compliments from everyone else as well. I couldn't be more pleased with the professionalism and quality of the photos.

My graduation pictures were awesome! Most photographers are used to certain styles and settings of pictures in every customer but AC Photography and Designs allows the customer to choose how they would like their pictures taken. He also specially designed my invitations! Great photography and great prices. If you are looking for a photographer for events, weddings, or graduations then this is your guy!

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.
