Billie came with a real bonus: She brought her very capable husband Jeff along (with my permission of course) to act as a supplemental photographer! It was literally getting two for the price of one! They were prompt, courteous, fun and professional. The cost was extremely competitive. Most importantly, they are excellent photographers. They added energy to a very important birthday party and made all the guests feel like celebrities. (They acted at times like paparazzi-- which just added to the feeling of celebration). In addition to the candid shots which created a full "diary" of memories, they came prepared to take more formal shots that were amazing. I was so impressed by the entire experience that I will be hiring them for my upcoming wedding without even considering anyone else. I cannot effectively express just how fabulous they were. Do not miss the opportunity to add them to any event that you want to raise to the next level.

We hired Amir for family photos and everyone was really pleased with the results. Amir was friendly and professional and did a great job working with the different generations. The pictures are very good quality. We were delighted to get the digital files which makes it easy for each of the families to get exactly the pictures they want. Would definitely recommend.

Lyly was so sweet and so understanding. It was our first time working with a photographer as a family. I have 3 children and what was supposed to be a perfect hour in my mind turned out to be one of the most stressful events in my life. My children all wanted nothing to do with being perfect and taking a lifelong photograph. My 9 year old pouted and crossed his arms, my 3 year old could not be still and refused to face the camera and my 2 year old had her tongue out for the most part. Lyly was encouraging and made it a point to capture their attention individually as well as bring me some relief and encourage me that all would be fine. I am truly grateful and will work with her again.

Amber is the perfect photographer for our family! My girls love her and she captured all of our family moments in a beautiful scenery. She is responsive, she gave great recommendations, and she is an absolute joy to work with! She knows exactly what she is doing behind the camera and she goes for all of the best angles possible. We couldn’t be more happier with the quality and the professionalism she provides. Thank you so much Amber for such beautiful pictures!

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!

We had a great time at our shoot with Flossie. After a long long time, we decided it was time for family pictures and we were out of practice. Flossie made booking easy, helped us during our second-guessing wardrobe choices the night before, and kept us laughing and looking good for the session! We love the proofs and can’t wait to see the edited versions!

Nasser was extremely personable, made the photo shoot fun and relaxing, captured my personality really well in my headshots, and delivered the final images to me the same day. In comparison to the other photographers I found while searching online over the past week or so, his work was on par with the best out there, yet price-wise I felt what he charged was very fair for the value as compared with inflated pricing from many other photographers with similar quality work. I'm glad my wife found him on Thumbtack, and I'll definitely be referring friends to him when the topic of headshots comes up in the future!

Sage and Ash Photography did an awesome job on our pictures! I have had my fair share of working with numerous photographers and by far these guys are the BEST! Courtney and Blake are so much fun to work with and they are very talented. My two year old even cooperated for pictures because of how great they were with her! The pictures the took for us have quickly become my favorite photos of our little family. We hired them to do Maternity pictures and then again for an in home newborn session, and the images we got back are beautiful! We will definitely be working with them 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.
