I live in Washington, D.C. and needed a photographer to do a session for a family member as a gift in suburban Dallas. Joe's profile popped up, he got back to me right away, made arrangements and the pics are great.

Working with Nazim at Friday Photos was a true pleasure. It started when I found him on Thumbtack about 5 days before our wedding. The fact that he made himself available on such short notice, was a life (or should I say marriage) saver! When I met him at the event, I was completely taken with his kind face and smile. He was quietly involved in all the important aspects of our ceremony. Lastly, the pictures were lovely. Beautiful. But what completely moved my husband and I was the video Nazim created from the photos. It had our favorite songs and it was just amazing. When we received the video, we watched it twice (my husband's request). After watching it, I said to my husband 'What do you want to watch on TV now?'. He smiled and said, "Nothing, I want to end my night with that lovely video he sent us'. That sums it up. We will be using Friday Photos again for a family photo shoot we have planned for the Spring.

I hired Amir to take pictures at my daughter's first birthday and couldn't be happier. There is nothing I like more than getting my money's worth - his rate was among the lowest offers with the highest most rated reviews. It seemed like a no brainer to hire him and I was right. Amir is a professional photographer who knows exactly what to do. He showed up early and was already shooting away before I even got there. He was super easy to work with, great with children, and very attentive to your needs. I will be hiring him again for every event or photography needs! Thanks Amir!

Lyly is a perfectionist and the best and most diligent photographer I have worked with. We hired Lyly for our family portraits. My siblings and our families flew into Dallas for a family reunion and Lyly accommodated our flight schedules. She was able to snap hundreds of beautiful photos at White Rock Lake, despite the heat, humidity, babies, and toddlers. We are so happy with our family portraits and feel lucky to have hired her.

We originally met Jessica at a family wedding. We did notice that she was a lot of fun, but we were more impressed by how beautiful my now sister-in-laws photos were. They highly recommended her. We set up a phone conference with her and knew she was "the one" pretty much immediately. You can sense her warm heart and sincerity when you speak with her. She genuinely seem to love what she does, and backs it up with her passion and talent for her job, which is exactly what any couple should look for in their photographer. We had complete confidence in her since day one. I don't think we are particularly picky clients, we are very laid back so we just deferred to her expertise and judgement, and she did not steer us wrong. We could go on about how beautiful our photos are and what great work she does, but that is the part that obviously speaks for itself. There are a lot of photographers out there, and a lot of them do great work, but what set Jessica aside from them for us, was that everything felt so personal when we spoke with her, whereas other photographers made us feel like just another number. For me, what makes a great photographer is about more than their photos, it is also about your experience and interaction with them.That was very important to me considering I didn't want to feel awkward or uncomfortable all day while I was taking pictures. We wanted to leave a review reflective of our entire experience with her and not just her photography, and we felt she proved to be just as dedicated to us as clients as she is to her craft. We really have nothing we can criticize, only thank her for creating such beautiful memories for us to always treasure. It is a gift we will always be very thankful for. She is incredibly hard working and we wish her much continued success, its deserved. We've already seen many of the photos, but our final gallery posts this week and we couldn't be more excited!

Omar met me and my girls at Addison Circle for our family portraits. I was very impressed with his choice of location, our entire 60 min. session and how easy he was to work with. The photos that I have seen so far are spectacular and I can't wait to see the rest of them. Omar is a true professional and an excellent photographer.

The photographer was sure to capture the moment with every guest present, and even did a great job of getting nice family and individual photos. From the decor to the entertainment at my party, Saurav photographed all aspects of the night beautifully. I will definitely recommend him to my friends for their next party.

Eileen and Howard took our family's portrait when we were featured in a local magazine. They were very professional, flexible, and courteous- they were great with the children and even bought them ice cream! The portraits turned out beautifully, even though we had to shoot midday when the lighting wasn't ideal. I would highly recommend them!

It was a pleasure working with Jeremy for our wedding in downtown Dallas at the Cathedral Church of St. Matthew. He was very familiar with the area, and knew all the perfect spots for beautiful photos. He was calm and patient with my family, my guests, and with me (despite the frantic rush of the day!). Jeremy was with us for most of the day, taking pictures before, during, and after the ceremony and stayed until almost the end of the reception. I didn't realize how lovely the photos would be until I saw them. Jeremy really has a great eye for a beautiful shot, and we will treasure the photos. We have some slightly more traditional "wedding portrait" photos from inside the cathedral church and many candid shots of guests enjoying the ceremony and reception. I loved that the photos do not look staged; he created lovely images that capture the warmth of the wedding location and the excitement and romance of our wedding day. He was able to capture the fun and spontaneity of the reception and the energy is really represented in the photos. Jeremy was totally dedicated to getting great pictures. He was both accommodating by letting us dictate shots that we wanted and also took charge of some shots and suggested different poses. After the wedding day, he did a beautiful job editing the photos and I was thrilled in the quick turn around time! Jeremy's patience, professionalism, skill, and artistic eye were all deeply appreciated. Everyone who has seen the online wedding album or the distributed CD's loves the photos. His photography is highly recommended and I would certainly hire him again.

Rush is AMAZING! He exceeded all of our expectations from the beginning to end. We wanted a photographer to capture pictures of our little miracle that just turned one. He stayed in contact with me from the time he responded with a very reasonable bid, answering my questions and suggesting the perfect spot for our outdoor session, to sending me a couple of photos immediately after our session with a tons of pictures of my very own!! The shots are incredible, a large number were edited with some in black and white. This guy has a winning personality with high skills behind the lens. Very patient, funny, kind, sweet; as you can tell, I'm highly satisfied and thrilled to find this guy!! We meet at Lakeside park, he suggested shots, we suggested shots; he was so easy going and fun to work with. The quality of the photos we received, the time he took with us getting the shots, 110% satisfied with the entire experience. I HIGHLY recommend Rush and will definitely be using him again, WOW! The Boberg's are so blessed to have connected with Rush. The life and love he captured in our photos is priceless, you can not go wrong with this guy!! Huge THANK YOU!

Shelby has been an absolute pleasure to work with. The pictures I’ve seen so far are perfect, and the price was within my budget. I hired her to do photos of my daughter & her family. My daughter is very pleased - she said Shelby made the shoot very fun and a “chill” atmosphere. My 7 month old grandson is smiling and looking content in the few photos I’ve seen, so I say Kudos!! I will definitely hire her when we need a photographer again.

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.
