You have to hire Ray, hands down. There is no other photographer out there who can provide you and your family with a lifetime of wonderful memories. Before your event is over Ray will be just like family so be sure to get plenty pictures of him as well. He is a rare jewel to find and we felt extremely blessed from the first contact to the end of our wedding day. Everyone loved him and he will do anything in the world for you: button your dress, tie your ties, haul you around, carry your stuff. He is more than a photographer.

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 can't rave enough about Autumn and her work!! I hired her for a family picture outdoors in downtown Nashville and she met us at the location we picked. Her friendly personality meshed so well with my family, creating smiles that absolutely warm my heart in the pictures. Seriously, I haven't seen my high school/college age sons ever look so relaxed and happy during a "family photo shoot" before- and the pictures reflect that! I am blown away with what she captured! She takes a ton of photos and wants to make sure to get plenty of options to choose from with the final prints-which are SO many. Not to mention she is extremely fair priced. Now, my hardest part is...which image do I enlarge for my wall?!?....I adore them ALL! Hire Autumn, she is simply AMAZING!!!

Tina is fantastic! She captured tons of great photos in a short amount of time. She is very patient with kids (and adults). Her prices are much more reasonable than some of the other photographers we contacted. We are very happy!

Anna is one of the best photographers I've had the opportunity to work with.. Certainly the most comfortable shoot I've experienced. She immediately put me at ease, and made me feel good in front of the camera. And the photos came out beautiful! Her style is versatile- covering a wide range of looks and images.. natural, sexy, edgy, glamorous or laid back.. whatever you're going for, she can create that image. Not only is she a fantastic photographer, but also skilled in design. Without me giving much direction, she created an album cover that perfectly represents my style of music and image. Anna is incredibly talented and a joy to work with. You'll be happy with the results!

Chrissy was a pleasure to work with from the moment she agreed to work with us to the time we received our album. She was very open to our ideas and easy to communicate with. We appreciated the timely responses to e-mails and the completion of our pictures and photo album. Her efficiency eased the stress of the wedding planning process and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer. Also, we loved how we were able to keep digital copies of the photos. We’re truly thankful to have had her shoot our wedding, especially it being in California. Precious moments were captured from our special day that we will cherish forever, all thanks to her! We would definitely love to work with her again.

It was the first time in a long time that my entire family, with all the kids and grandkids, was together for Christmas Eve. Ashlyn graciously took time out on Christmas Eve to take our family pictures as it was the only time it would work for us. She was extremely patient and accommodating! Her fee was also very reasonable. We love the pictures and couldn't be more pleased. Thank you, Ashlyn!

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 :)

You won’t find a photographer more personable and easier to deal with than Kyle. The photos were stunning, delivered promptly, and really captured the beauty of our engagement. These photos will last us a lifetime. Thank you Kyle for your hard work, skill, and easy going personality (not to mention a stellar rate and the THOUSANDS of likes we’ve received on social media). Now I know I have a photographer I can trust with life’s most precious moments :)

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.

Extremely Short-Notice Surprise Engagement Chris was amazing. The pictures taken were top-tier, all without having ever taken pictures at my specified location before, or even meeting him in person prior to. Coordination is no issue with this photographer. 10/10 - would have him take pictures again.

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!

She was upfront and honest from the beginning of our conversation stating she was a beginner photographer and have done all her photography on her leisure time. My family and I took a chance with her and she presented herself in a fun but professional way. She didn't make things uncomfortable. We had a small family reunion and the pictures were stunning. She took posed and unpredictable, unexpected pictures. We are very happy we took a chance with her and will hire her again in the future.

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.
