Joe was the photographer for our Barksdale Elementary graduation. Joe did an outstanding job! He was prompt, professional and took exceptional images of the event. All the requirements of the job were met as requested. Joe exceeded our expectations with his attention to detail and the quality of the images. I would definitely hire Joe again to photograph our event.

Nazim took photos for a surprise wedding proposal with my fiance and I. He was great. I had him sort of hide because I didn't want to tip her off. He was really professional. Not sure that all photographers would do that. I would definitely use him again.

This is a very late review, but Amber was a pleasure to work with. She was accommodating to our preferences (really, more my mother in law’s preferences) and the pictures were perfect for a crisp winter scene.

I am a wedding planner, so you can probably imagine when I started to plan my own wedding, how much time I spent looking for a photographer and how incredibly picky I was. I like to think that I was in a lucky position compared to most brides because I have the experience to know what to look for and what questions to ask. I can't even begin to tell you how on top of things Jessica was. I could speak for hours on how talented she is and how insanely beautiful her work is, but that speaks for itself the second you look at her site. You don't need me to tell you. What impressed me most is her professionalism and how far out of her way she goes to "get the shot." Once you've experienced her how hard she works, and how much thought she puts in weeks and months before the wedding, it becomes really obvious why all her work is so beautiful and looks so effortless. In our initial meeting, she walked us through exactly what her process is on a wedding day. How she shoots, what she looks for, how she tries to envision your album while she's taking detail shots to make sure they have a consistent flow and color scheme, and that the lighting and mood tell a story. How she researches your color palette and pinterest boards before the wedding so she knows exactly what type of flowers and decor to expect to work into the images. She explained timelines and when the best time to shoot our first look and portraits was. She was so informed and helpful in ways that went beyond just the photography. We knew instantaneously she was IT for us. Before the wedding she sent us a very detailed questionnaire to fill out that asked about our decor inspiration, our timeline, who we wanted included in our formal photos, and basically anything you could possibly think of about the wedding. A few days before she called me and discussed all of it with me and mentioned she was going to do a walk-through of my venue to make sure she knew exactly what to expect. She also sent me a very detailed list of all the types of "detail" shots she takes and how we could pre-organize these items so they would be available for her to photograph as soon as she arrived. She reached out to my florist to ask for a few extra pieces of our florals and ribbons to incorporate into shoe shots, invitation shots, etc. As a planner, in my professional life I do a lot of styled shoots with photographers (photoshoots we do with other vendors for ourselves, not clients, to expand our portfolios)... and I realized that she treats every wedding like a styled shoot, with the same care and attention to detail. She even showed up with her own extra props to use that matched the colors of our wedding - serving trays, little cute ring dishes, jewelry boxes, golden hangers, ribbons, tiny decorative scissors!! She kept joking that she is a very "OCD perfectionist" but what it really is, is passion and a committed attention to detail and making sure every wedding looks beautiful - elevating even the weddings that maybe did not have as much budget for decor and all those extra little Pinterest details we all love so much. I have worked with a lot of photographers through my work, and I have NEVER worked with one that put so much forethought into preparing for a wedding as she does. Most show up and shoot what is there. My wedding was beautiful, and I put a lot of hard work into it, but it would not have been nearly as beautiful in photographs as she made it, without all the little extra touches she thought of that no one else does. As a fellow vendor, these are the things that impressed me most about her and I feel important to share with other brides. I also know that most of the photographers I have worked with in the past will give the couple's 300-500 pictures. Jessica gave me over 1,300 edited images. Every one of them beautiful. I have seen many talented photographers (though I'm biased that she is the MOST talented) but none that work as hard or deliver as far beyond expectation as her. After my wedding, my old referral list basically went out the door. I do not recommend anyone but Jessica to my clients now. Of the dozens of photographers I have worked with, she is above and beyond the very best. If you hire her, you're making the very best vendor decision you will make for your entire wedding. If you don't hire her, what a loss for you! Your cake and food will be over that night. Your photos and memories will last forever. If I could give one piece of advice as a planner, save on the things that don't last, splurge on the things that do. Good luck, brides!

I cannot say enough about how fantastic Eileen and Howard are. They deserve six stars, no doubt about it. They did both our engagement photos and our wedding photos. We have not yet received our wedding photos since they were only taken two days ago, but they were so enjoyable to work with and our engagement photos turned out beautifully. I am definitely going to be hiring them for my maternity photos next :) You guys are the best!! We were so lucky to have them as our photographers. The price is right too, so it doesn't get much better than that!

Rush is AMAZING! He exceeded all of our expectations from the beginning to end. We wanted a photographer to capture pictures of our little miracle that just turned one. He stayed in contact with me from the time he responded with a very reasonable bid, answering my questions and suggesting the perfect spot for our outdoor session, to sending me a couple of photos immediately after our session with a tons of pictures of my very own!! The shots are incredible, a large number were edited with some in black and white. This guy has a winning personality with high skills behind the lens. Very patient, funny, kind, sweet; as you can tell, I'm highly satisfied and thrilled to find this guy!! We meet at Lakeside park, he suggested shots, we suggested shots; he was so easy going and fun to work with. The quality of the photos we received, the time he took with us getting the shots, 110% satisfied with the entire experience. I HIGHLY recommend Rush and will definitely be using him again, WOW! The Boberg's are so blessed to have connected with Rush. The life and love he captured in our photos is priceless, you can not go wrong with this guy!! Huge THANK YOU!

We had a great experience with our newborn baby girl. Shelby was super quick to respond, traveled to our home and knocked out a great shoot with our little 11-day-old smoosh. She promised us a quick turnaround on edited images - within a few weeks - but surprised us with sneak peeks just a few hours after the shoot! We're obviously biased and think our baby is the cutest ever, and the photos live up to the real thing!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

Where is the best place to take baby pictures?

Baby pictures are among the most popular types of portrait photography, and most newborn photographers are well versed in the best places to take baby pictures in their local areas. Some newborn photographers will come to the hospital to shoot the baby within a day or two of birth, while others have set up their studios to accommodate the needs of infants. Some parents prefer to have the newborn photographer come to their home or travel to a favorite park or other outdoor location. Like any portrait photography, the best place to take baby pictures is the place you like best and that will yield the types of photos you want of your baby, whether that’s posed and carefully lit studio portraits or spontaneous, casual photos at home. Work with a local newborn photographer to find a safe, calm location with great lighting and some privacy for your family.

How much does baby photography cost?

Portrait photography provides parents with lasting images of the first whirlwind months of a newborn’s life. The cost varies based on several factors, including the length and location of the session, the number of photos provided, and the amount of editing and retouching the photographer does. The national average cost for baby photos is $150-$200. Some baby photographers charge by the number of photos provided, typically ranging from an average of $299 for 20 high-resolution edited photos, to an average of $399 for 35 photos, to $499 for all of the images taken in a single session. Props and location affect the cost, too; an elaborate studio shoot with props and professional lighting may increase the cost to $600-$700 for 20-50 photos. Adding a second location or asking the photographer to travel can add $70-$250 to the cost of the session. Photographers may also charge extra fees for providing additional photos and DVDs, scheduling weekend sessions, and shooting siblings. Expect to pay at least a $50 deposit when you book a portrait photography session.

When should you take newborn photos?

Few styles of portrait photography are as tricky as newborn photos — the unpredictable infant is always in charge! The best way to ensure a successful photo shoot is to work with a local newborn photographer within the first two weeks of the baby’s life. Some photographers even work with hospitals to offer newborn sessions within a day of the baby’s birth. But newborn photographers usually recommend scheduling a shoot during the baby’s first two weeks of life, while the baby is still sleepy and relatively cooperative, especially for posed or studio shots. During this time, babies are easier to swaddle in blankets and dress in hats or headbands, and, because they often nap or nurse, can be staged with various props or be cuddled by their parents. For casual photos, most newborn photographers recommend shooting within the first six weeks of a baby’s life. Lifestyle portrait photography is more flexible and doesn’t require the baby to cooperate with multiple poses or props.
