Cameron Digital Media is by far the best photographer any one could ask for. Every session I have had with her has been full of laughter and very comfortable. She did our engagement pictures, our wedding day, our 3 month old pictures and we even have her booked for a quincenera. She is very professional with her work and with your time. I would highly recommend her to any one for ANY event. We even managed to get her on the dance floor at our wedding!

Madeleine takes amazing pictures! She was able to help me find a location to propose a week or so in advance and it was perfect. I would be more than happy to recommend her to friends and family. Payment and downloading the pictures from her were as simple as could be.

    It was a GREAT pleasure working with Erica, she not only did an amazing job with the photography done for my parents 50th wedding anniversary but she had a very warm rapport with everyone she came in to contact with at the party! She clearly enjoys what she does and it showed in the photo’s she took throughout the evening. She not only understood how important the event was but made sure no one was forgotten in the process. I would highly recommend Erica and would contact no other photographer then her in any future events we may have! Thank you Erica for an AMAZING experience and making it such a special and memorable night!!!

    About

    I love what I do for my work, and I can make the photograph exclusive as you want it to be. I'm also a graphic designer, if you want a poster or birthday card, wedding invites, along with some business cards, I am more willing to do so.

    About

    I am Miguel Angel, a McAllen Texas based photographer dedicated to creating fine art wedding photography for the modern bride. My style and approach to wedding photography is not only to create a couple of "good images" or "just ok photographs" from your wedding, instead it’s about creating a collection of artistic, vivid, flattering, styled and spontaneous images. Its more than candid images, it’s about merging the personalities, the moments, and the emotions with the setting to craft distinctive images that will illustrate a great love story. I believe that it’s about creating a fabulous and exceptional experience for my couples from beginning to end. That’s my goal, this is my style and I want to be your wedding photographer.

    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.
