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!)

Laurinda is so accommodating, and she works incredibly hard to get as many great shots as possible. She is professional in every way, friendly, punctual, afforadable, and dependable. She is our "go to" photographer for all of our family photos. I recommend her to all of my friends and family, and they have never been disappointed by her. In fact, they all have continued to use her. Me+3 Photography won't let you down!!

We were coming to Nashville from out of state for a family reunion and wanted a family portrait. I had a lot of uncertainty and questions, especially since I did not know the area or anyone to give me a personal recommendation, yikes, what was I thinking.... But, I tracked Michael down thru Thumbtack. He responded promptly to all my questions and was "over the top" accommodating with our choice of date, time and he was the one who suggested a fabulous venue. From the first phone call he made me feel that we were in "good hands" and we were. Michael's personality was a great match for my family and he managed all their different personalities, plus he made sure I got the special requested poses we had talked about... he made sure I got a preview of the shots on his camera before we left to make sure we were on the same page and was there another pose I wanted.... We got some great pictures!! I would highly recommend him to anyone!! Donna

Verified review

I asked Tina to shoot some professional portrait style photographs of me in my living space to use on my website and for promotional material. I get nervous when being photographed and tend to make a scrunchy face. Tina coached me through some relaxation techniques, directed my poses and together we chose the best photos. The agreed upon price was right on the mark and she delivered all the digital files within 48 hours. Warm and professional, I will definitely rehire Tina for future work.

Deb is fantastic! Not only did she take amazing photographs, she was able to juggle my crazy schedule and family during my wedding day. I really felt she did a great job of making everyone feel comfortable and the kids focused which resulted in beautiful family portraits. I even had a couple of comments from family on how sweet she was to them. She showed up with a plan and managed to get all the must have photos we wanted that day. Just an outstanding professional!

Ashlyn is an amazing photographer. Not only were her photos exactly what I was looking for, she was super helpful and seemed to be everywhere the day of the wedding. For example, after we were done with family photos, we went around to visit with friends and family. Whenever someone jumped in for a random group shot, Ashlyn and her assistant magically appeared to get us a professional shot as well! Couldn't be happier!

Sandy was incredibly helpful and he did a wonderful job capturing our daughter's personality in her portraits. The fact that the fee included full hair and make-up by an quality professional was an added extra bonus. Highly recommend.

Matt was the ideal photographer from start to finish! He made the day feel care free and easy, when it would typically be stressful and nerve wracking. Matt will make you comfortable in your own skin, and will make your special event that much more special. If I ever need a photographer again, I'd never call anyone before Matt. Can't say enough how great he is at his craft :)

Allie is beyond amazing. She captured every single emotion and moment that was very important to us. Allie’s personality and kindness takes the working relationship to a friendship very quickly. Her being a part of our big day was perfect. She is more than a photographer... as she is now a part of our family.

Verified review

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!

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.
Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
