We had an excellent experience working with April on June 16, 2017! We hired April to capture outdoor photos of our immediate family group of 22. She was an excellent communicator in advance, and helped us locate an outdoor location for our shoot. She was thorough and prompt; very professional and works smoothly and with class. April is a warm and wonderful individual- each member of our group enjoyed her presence as our family photographer. We recommend her and would hire her again!

David was such a pleasure to work with. We were looking for photographers in the Salt Lake City area and he responded to our inquiry right away. He was instrumental in helping us pick the perfect location for our family portraits. He was patient with our children (and pets) and made the whole experience enjoyable. We would highly recommend David with Meppen Photography for your next family photo session.

Worked with many photographers in past. Parker does amazing work. Rather than typical boring canned shots he took a lot of fun interactive pics of my kids. They even enjoyed their session with him. I highly recommend using him for your family photos. I will continue to do so.

My 2 daughters and I worked with Brett last summer for family photos. I really dislike having my photo taken, but was immediately put at ease with Brett's gentle guidance. He went far and beyond by spending most of the day with us and shooting all over the city. He was very patient with my teen daughters. Our pictures turned out beautifully and our experience wonderful. Brett is the consummate professional with a creative and artistic edge.

These guys were incredible to work with! Super fun and upbeat! Their style is simple and not over edited like most photographers you see nowadays. They were great with positioning large group pictures. They were extremely accommodating, so glad we ditched our last photographer and went with them.

Seth is amazing! The quality experience he creates is unequaled by any other professional photographer I’ve worked with. His interactions with the kids is perfect, which helps parents focus on the photos and not what the kids are doing. He made us laugh, kept us all calm and his post production work is fantastic. Seth is our forever family photographer! Just see the proof below!

Christina is awesome! I researched a lot of photographers and chose Christina because I liked her style the best. I booked her for headshots. She was super nice and very easy to work with. She knew a lot of great areas in downtown SLC to use as backdrops. She has a ton of photography experience and is very knowledgable. The photos turned out amazing. 10/10 would recommend!

I have worked with Ted many times and have always been really happy with his skill as a photographer. Almost as important for me is that Ted is very creative and he is easy to work with. I have recommended him to several others.

Megan has been our photographer for our family pictures and, most recently, our daughters wedding. She was marvelous! Not only are we thrilled with the quality and variety of the photographs, but she was also very calming and friendly. Photographers can sometimes be frazzled, but she was wonderful! I highly recommend Megan Owen Photography and Videography.

Most perfect day ever was documented in video by YamShots. When we received and watched the video we decided, if it was even possible, that the video made the day even more perfect! Seriously! Perfect detail, beautiful shots, flowed flawlessly from one event to the next. I cry every time I watch it. The color and clarity of the photography is amazing! I recommend YamShots to everyone and look forward to having a family photo shoot done by YamShots next time I have the family together. ..and the crew is so likable and unobtrusive. Never even had to think about what was going on behind the scene. Peaceful perfect !

We wanted to take “family” photos. I put family in quotations because my significant other and I have fur children. Celesta took gorgeous photos of us, and has a great eye for scenery and angles. She was very patient with my two dogs and went above and beyond by helping out with them to make sure we got great shots. She genuinely cares about your contentment, and I LOVED the photo results.

So impressed!!! We had some family portraits done here in Park City and Luke did an amazing job. He took us up to empire pass and the views are incredible. Amazing fall colors and he got some really great shots of everyone. Really great candid and natural smiles from the kids. Couldn’t be happier! I’d recommend him to any of my friends. Thanks Luke!

    I hired Stacy for my wedding. She did a fantastic job dealing with my large family, getting everyone organized for each different picture. She had great pricing and was very flexible. I was happy to have her around and she helped to ease my stress when things got hectic. I would definitely recommend her for other wedding events!

    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.
