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!!!!

John did an excellent job taking outdoor photos of our family. He had lots of great suggestions for locations and poses and he was very kind and patient with our three young kids. We were very happy with the results. We definitely recommend him and would book him again in the future.

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.

Mindi is an incredibly talented photographer. I recently had the pleasure of working with Mindi for a family photo shoot f. It was so much fun working with her and the pictures turned out amazing! It was my first time planning a family photo shoot with a toddler. She helped me think through and plan all the details to ensure it went as smoothly as possible. She captured exactly what I wanted – photos that are professional but still have some style, character, and playfulness. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a magical photographer!!

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!

Ryan did an amazing job photographing our event! 150 people, a very large awards program, dancing, great food and decor... She captured it all so beautifully! My best friend and my husband are both photographers and are my usual go-to's for the many charitable and social functions I put on but they were off duty that night. I was nervous that we wouldn't get the same quality and caring from a hired gun (so to speak). But myself and our group members were all so pleasantly surprised that Ryan got some amazing shots and in the challenging environment of a relatively low light hotel ballroom. Excellent job and highly recommended!

I had Steve do portrait and family photography. The pictures came out fantastic. He was very patient with us. He had great ideas and used his creativity to produce great photos. The fact that he does not post examples of client photos made me a little nervous at first because I couldn’t see examples, however, he let me do a test shoot that eased my concerns. Actually, it is comforting to know that my personal pictures won’t be posted on his site without my approval. I was very pleased with his work and would recommend him to others and I will definitely use him in the future.

Kassidy and I have been working on an amazing website together. I'm very impressed with how quick she was gathering all of my ideas and compressing them into a beautiful depiction of what I was trying to portray for my website. Her photography is absolutely wonderful and I would highly recommend anyone to do a photoshoot with her or website. Hope this helps anyone who is interested in hiring a photographer or webdesigner. Also her prices are very reasonable.

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!!!

Tate did our wedding back in 2013 and those are photos we'll treasure forever. He also did our first family photos when our son was a year old -- we'd use him every year only if we weren't so far! <3

Eva is an overall wonderful person and has a great energy about her. I won't lie, getting our contract finalized was just a little rocky from the beginning... My husband and I decided to do everything on our own (no wedding planner, and just a little help from friends/family) which made things maybe just a tiny bit more stressful than they could've been. When we mailed our payments to Eva and both checks ended up getting lost somehow... Hey, mistakes happen! I didn't appreciate the extra work in getting our checks cancelled and sending out new ones, but Eva definitely made up for it. She met up with my husband to apologize, and also ensured we would be getting a discount as well as an extra photographer. I was so so happy with the way everything turned out. Eva is energetic and excited about her work - and it shows!

Our experience with Ethan was perfection. When we look at the photos it reminds us of how wonderful the day was. Neither of us had used a professional photographer before but Ethan made us feel immediately at ease giving us just the right amount of guidance so he could work his magic. Our entire family had nothing but glowing reviews about their interactions with him throughout the day. He blended right in, we really couldn't have made a better choice with Ethan

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.
Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
