Matt was great to work with. From the time he submitted his quote and portfolio, I fell in love with his style of photography. He was cheaper than most of the other quotes I got, and yet I think his portfolio was the best by far. I was looking for new professional portraits to use for LinkedIn and other professional materials, but I detest the "stock photo" style of professional head shots that plague this space. His work has more personality and is less retouched - so my skin doesn't look plastic. We booked an appointment early in the morning on a Saturday at Hermann Park and Rice U in order to capture the best light. I had some ideas and he had also scouted good locations. I should also say, I've worked with many photographers and Matt had, I think, the most gear and tools for shooting on location that I've ever seen! He was also very personable, relaxed and easy to work with, which always helps to create better work that looks more natural and not posed. I've so far received about half of the final edited photos, and they're looking great! I'm looking forward to the rest!

Dom is the best in the business! Choosing him as our photographers for our AirBnB photos was the best decision we made. Dom made the whole process enjoyable and it was a joy to work with him. In addition to his professionalism, his work exceeded our expectations. He has a true natural talent for photography and was able to capture every special part of our condo that meant the world to us. His communication was consistent, effective, and efficient, plus his precision to detail is amazing. If you want the most authentic, unique, and awesome photos in town, Dom is your guy. My wife and I can’t wait to use him again for our other properties!

I can't begin to say how great our experience was with Bread & Water Photography. Both Daniel and Doris are great people to work with. They were very genuine and personable. The communication was excellent throughout our entire experience. The turn around time was great and the final product exceeded our expectations. We have officially adopted them as our family photographers for life. Ray & Vicki

We had Lori photograph our family, including young children. She was very professional and patient and made us all feel very comfortable. Even though I have not seen the final product yet, I really enjoyed working with her and can't wait to see the photos! She went the extra mile to get the right photo and was great at directing us.

Daniel did the photograpy for our wedding and reception on June 27th. He showed up 30 minutes early and took a few final requested shots after our allotted time was up. Daniel did a great job with a complexed situation. We were married on our boat and Daniel was all over it to get some great shots. He took photos from the bow, the stern, the second story fly bridge and the third story tuna tower. He had some creative compositions that proved to be "spot on" in the final photos. We looked into several photographers for our wedding and are very pleased that we went with Daniel at Positive Studios. He was not the least expensive nor the most expensive photographer, but we liked the detail in his sample photos. Daniel had our final photos ready for us in two weeks. I would highly recommend Positive Studios to anyone looking for a wedding photographer.

I recently participated in a photoshoot with a group of friends and cannot say enough of how wonderful it was to work with the photographer Jerry and his wife Yoli. We were all talking after the photoshoot of how rare it is to have someone direct you on where to stand, how to pose and to fix any flaws with your hair or outfit, and Jerry and Yoli do just that plus more. They're so friendly and easy to work with and you can tell they take their work very seriously. If you have any ideas, they’re more than willing to make it happen. I appreciate how Jerry will show up early to get setup and get the lighting just right. And afterwards you're not left wondering when you get to see the final product as the photographer does a great job of keeping you posted. I hope to be able to work with them again in the near 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.
