Andrea Reesing is an AMAZING photographer with the ability to make anyone and anything look amazing. When shooting with her, I felt completely comfortable and she brought out the best in me!! I got my photos within 24 hours, which I can't say that most photographers do. She has a love for photography that most creative people don't. I will definitely be booking her again!!!!

Lara is one of the Best Photographers in the Business. I had the pleasure of doing a mother/daughter session with Lara, and I cannot rave enough about her ability to capture the true essence of our relationship through her photography. You can tell that she really cares about her work and her craft, and through the entire shoot she put us at such ease. We really did feel like the most important people on the planet, all due in part to Laras ability to connect with us, as I'm sure she does with each and every one of her clients. It was an incredible experience, and the photos are something I will always treasure. Following the photoshoot with my Mom, I immediately hired Lara again to take photos of our home that we were soon to list for sale. We wanted professional photos for our listing, but we also wanted photos personally to capture all the blood sweat and tears we put into making it our unique home. Lara knew exactly what we wanted and needed with minimal direction, and she caught things that we would have passed over. Her attention to detail is immaculate. I attribute Lara's photography to why our home sold so quickly, and I cannot be more thankful for her skills and her inherent eye. If you're still reading this review, you really don't need to search any longer for a photographer. Lara is a class act and you can trust your special moments and memories in her hands with her behind the lens. I can't wait for the next opportunity to hire her.

Anna took so many good pictures, that even with the help of friends and family, I still couldn't decide which I liked best. Anna's work quality and customer service are impeccable. She is lovely to work with and immediately put me at ease. I highly recommend her.

Mary was great to work with. 1) She always responded to emails and phone calls quickly. 2) She was flexible with our schedule for the bridal portraits (my daughter lives out of town) and got them back quickly so we could have a print to display at the wedding. She had no problem with the wedding being at our church and the reception at another location. 3) I LOVE her pictures. One thing that impressed me on her web-page was the indoor shots - many photographers have lots of outdoor shots but few indoor ones. The wedding and reception were both inside (it was July!) and she did a great job. She was very discreet and managed to capture the beauty, sacredness, and joy of the day. Somehow she managed to convince my daughter and her husband to step outside for some quick (and wonderful) shots and then continued the magic indoors. 4) Compared to many other photographers, she has very reasonable rates. 5) She truly loves her job and her joy bubbles out to everyone around - it was more like she was an old friend rather than "just" a photographer. I will definitely contact Mary for other occasions!

I did not actually have my photos taken by Errich (because a photographer friend was able to do it for less money), but he was very kind and gracious when I canceled and was willing to reduce his price quite a bit as well. I will definitely keep him in mind for next time if my friend is unavailable.

Debbie was fantastic! We booked her for our wedding and we're super pleased with the photos we've received. Her attention to small details really sets her aside from other photographers. We don't need 500 pictures of just the two of us; We want to be able to remember the whole day, and she made that possible. She makes ordering/sharing your photos very easy.

Alex did our Beach Wedding, and the experience was truly Amazing! His attention to detail and being able to capture every aspect was again Amazing! We have worked with a few photographers before but none of them matched Alex and his "Eye" for capturing the perfect moment with every shot! Definitely using him for our Vow Renewal at our 10 Year Anniversary.

One stop shopping was never better! We hired Jim Landers for our annual sales meeting in San Antonio. With 1300 people attending and several events going on that week, he was able to provide all the photographers we needed and even accommodated last minute requests for additional services. His prices are fair and his services/quality are top notch. I highly recommend using Jim and his wonderful staff. Thanks! --The CareFusion team

I adored working with Jodi! I hired her for my sister's wedding. She also did my sister's and my engagement photo shoots, as well as my sister's bridal portraits. She has an eye for detail and composition; her photos are stunning and the finished product looks like it belongs in a bridal magazine. She is a great value -- priced well below other photographers whose work does not measure up to hers. I will absolutely hire her for my wedding when we pick a date. In addition to her photography skills, she is professional, sweet, cheerful, and personable. Thank you, Jodi!

Amazing, wonderful, perfect are just a few of the words to describe Tanya! She is by far the kindest, most decaded person I have ever met. When I found her on Thumbtack 2 weeks before my wedding, she made me feel confident that this was all going to work and it was going to be beautiful! After a bad experience with my previously hired photographer I was nervous. She was not only the best photographer a bride could ask for, she instantly became my friend. She went above and beyond on so so many occasions!! I highly recommend her for anyone who wants a great photographer, who has great prices and so much more to offer than many other photographers!!!

I highly recommend Andie's photography and would give her a 10 star recommendation if I could. Both photographers worked collaboratively to give me the results I wanted for my bridal pictures and wedding photos. She went beyond my expectations and I have to say I am not one to keep calm when being photographed but I felt completely at ease working with these two ladies. Love the editing and their work is amazing!!!! The pictures speak for themselves!!

Jerrell did not just take photos at my wedding, he told a story with them. I was so impressed with his ability to get several shots of specific candid moments so that you could feel like you were there all over again! He is talented, self sufficient, and goes with the flow. He is amazing, hire him!

When I needed headshots to promote my musical services, John gave me an excellent price then proceeded to go the extra mile to ensure excellent photos, understanding my unique needs rather than going for easy, run of the mill poses. Finally, he touched up the photos as part of the package, something many other photographers would have charged extra for.

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.
