I hired Carson to DJ my 30th Birthday Party and he did an amazing job. His charisma on the mic and mixing behind the booth really added to my the night special. He provided an awesome light show, great mix of music to keep the party pumping, karaoke, and a photographer to document the night. On top of all of this, the cost of it all was incredible affordable for the services provided. CK Soundz is definitely one of the best entertainment providers I have worked with, and I will definitely go to Carson when planning events in the future!

The service was excellent and the quality of the pictures were outstanding. We especially liked the dvds that contained the wedding pictures and photo albums that contained the pictures. We also like the poster with a picture of he bride and groom that the guests were allowed to sign. Great Job!!!

Sharp Shadow covered my Engagement and Wedding. We hired them through Thumbtack. My fiance was a bit skeptical about them since they asked a very competitive and low price for their service. We were running on a tight budget. So, we did not have any choice except hiring them. On the day of the event, they arrived earlier. They spent some time to look at the venue to plan their photoshoot. There were two photographers. One did the photography and the lady photographer mostly helped us in posing and lining up. They are very meticulous about their job. Since we paid so little compared to their quality and performance, I think I am writing this review to do some justice to their work. I wish them best of luck!

My wife and I found John for our Wedding Photography and couldn't be more pleased. She was nervous in general and especially about looking nervous in our pictures and her portraits. John made her feel at east at once. He was funny and really seemed to be enjoying what he was doing. He was everywhere during the wedding and reception, and along with the second photographer, he captured moments I didn't even know he was there for. HIGHLY recommended!

Mr. Tucker has photographed my son each football season for five years, both action shots and portraits. He has done a wonderful job with both. Aside from the sports photos, he also takes our family portraits for us and we are very pleased with his work. He is a professional businessman and the kids love him and are very comfortable with him. Great portraits every time!

    Christina photographed my children and family while we lived in Georgia. She did spring, playtime, cake smash, fall fun, etc.. for my children and many other families. The quality of her work is by FAR the best I've seen. I find myself wishing to fly her across the country to capture my children's milestones. But also, her patience and genuine friendliness makes the process easy and allow the children open up to her so she is able to capture their natural spirits on camera better than anyone I have ever met. She has an eye for special moments, and she has never rushed a shoot. She lets it happen naturally until she gets all of the amazing shots she wants. She has pride in her work because she has an obvious gift but she also works hard. My most treasured future heirloom photographs of my children have all come from Christina's archives. Also, she has a heart of gold. It's probably obvious that I 1,000% Recommend Christina.

    Emily is professional, patient, and immensely creative. Our family photo session was relaxed and fun, and the results were breathtaking. She worked with the backdrop of our own property and it has never looked so good. She knew when the light was right and took full advantage of it. I am in love with our pictures.

      Very happy with my experience. Photographer was very professional and helpful with bringing my thoughts to reality. I wasn’t confident on every little detail but he was very patient and gave great suggestions. I was super excited about my pictures and they turned out better than I expected. Definitely will be back again.

      My husband and I had Engagement photos, Save-the-Dates, and Wedding day photos done by Shannon. The process always went smoothly, she was always available for questions, and the photos turned out better than we could have imagined! With her competitive prices, I look forward to the day when I can call her to take new family photos. I highly recommend Shannon for all things photography and design in Memphis

      I got married on January 31st, I had seen photos from Francis photography and decided that I wanted her to take my photos. She went above and beyond what I could have ever asked for. I was very nervous that day and didn't feel that I looked close to my best and yet she somehow made me feel beautiful! During the wedding and reception I had no idea she was even there and yet she was able to get the most amazing photos. My family loved her too. Especially because she got me my photos in no time at all. And now that I am pregnant I am contacting her about my maternity and family photos! So glad I found such an amazing photographer.

        Zach is an all-around great photographer! He’s done portraits for me and my classmates and they all turned out great. He made sure that we were all happy with the final products. He composes and captures light in an amazing way! I believe he can deliver high-quality photos in any kind of situation at a fair price.

          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.
