We had a family reunion in OBX, so we wanted to take family photos. Mike was on time (unlike us) very professional and didn't waste time. We were very happy with everything and now we are just waiting for our photos. If all goes well, this will of been a perfect experience!

Unlike most photographers who just tell you to pose and smile, I feel like Miss Jennifer takes the time to make sure everyone was relaxed and that every photo is spectacular. I would definitely choose her again whenever I need a professional photos.

I booked the traditional photo booth for my family reunion. it was a big hit with the family as the photo booth staff was very personable and encouraged our guests to take photos. The nice thing was everyone who took a photo got a copy of their photo which included colors of my own selection and our family crest.

Alvin was my photographer for my husband's homecoming. The weather conditions were not ideal, it was pouring rain as we waited at the pier for the ship to pull in. Alvin never complained once. He's warm, friendly, & professional. Thankfully the rain stopped once they started to exit the ship. Alvin captured our reunion perfectly. I love all my pictures! We even received a sneak peak of some of our photos before they were all ready. I will definitely have Alvin capture our next homecoming as well as any other professional pictures we'll want in the future.

I was VERY lucky to find MFS Photography when I did an online inquiry of photographers in the Hampton, VA area. I submitted a price quote for some digital photographs (several group and some candid shots) to be taken at our family reunion during the 4th of July weekend. MFS Photography had the most reasonable rates so I accepted the quote. He contacted me before the event and was very professional and personable. He went out to the site (we had reserved an event room at a Hampton Inn) before the event to check out the environment. He called me to let me know that the room as it was set up would not be big enough to take group shots for the total number of people we were expecting and recommended an exterior location for the (everyone included) shots. On the day of the event he arrived early. What surprised me the most was that he pitched in and helped us transport things from our cars to the event room. So he not only photographed us, but he helped us with some of our busy work. That was so unexpected, welcomed and highly appreciated. He stayed with us longer than the couple of hours that he had promised. The next day, in spite of the fact that he was doing a wedding, he delivered the digital photos as promised. Our family enjoyed having Michael with us on the first day of our event. I wish I had found him earlier and been able to engage him for all three days. I highly recommend him and do plan to use him for our future reunions if he is available. A VERY satisfied customer, Vivian Nwankpah

We had a wonderful experience with these amazing photographers. From the time we began getting into contact until well after our photo session, Jamison Media LLC went above and beyond to ensure that we were pleased with the outcome. With a newborn and toddler in tow, it was not the easiest of feats, but everything went smoothly and we have received so many compliments on our Christmas portraits from friends, family and even strangers. I would recommend Jamison Media LLC to anyone and everyone! You will NOT regret booking them for any event!

My experience with Nicolette Duke was fun. This was a maternity shoot. We had to change our location due to construction however, it still turned out to be a great experience. I can not wait to see the photos of me and my fiance and the baby bump. She is easy going and kinda let us do our own thing and I felt very relaxed. I may review again after I see the photos. Thanks Nicoette! :) -Sharon M.

Everyone should hire mrs viki as an event photographer. I hired her to capture my 21st birthday at a hotel. She was extremely patient and understanding when I arrived late to the venue. I had a small meltdown that resulted in a great turnaround because of her fun personality and genuineness. I booked her from 8:30 to 10:30pm and we had a blast. She was well prepared by bringing a variety of backdrops and using different materials. She has many great ideas and is an excellent professional to highlight your event. Once the photos arrive I will be uploading them here. I appreciate you !!

Marcela is an exceptional photographer. She is very kind, very innovative, great with kids and big families. She really pays attention to the details. Not only is her editing awesome but her prices and pictures in general are fantastic. I don’t let anyone else take are family photos because she is worth the wait and just that good. The turn around for pictures is very quick. And she always makes sure you are satisfied. I highly recommend photography by Marcela!!!!

Scott is an awesome photographer! He was able to fully capture our son's 1st birthday party! His warm and friendly disposition helped to make our guests feel comfortable while still managing to capture every precious moment! Such precious memories...we had a few photographers to choose from and we are so thankful that we decided to go with Scott! And the turnaround for our photos was very fast! If you are considering Scott as your photographer, make no hesitation! He is the right person for the job!

Jim and I shot TFP and he has by far been the most professional photographer I have ever worked with. Him and his assistant made sure I was comfortable and had everything I needed. He took his time with every shot perfecting the lighting and she assisted with adjusting anything out of place. They are a wonderful team! I would recommend him to everyone.

Best wedding photographer ever. Jessica is the best to work with, responds quickly to emails, comes off as being the nicest person ever, and is an amazing photographer. I'm very picky and hard to please but Jessica made sure all my concerns were taken care of well in advance, she scouted the location in advance, took detailed notes everytime I talked with her, etc. She's just the best and I'd definitely use her again for any other professional photos I want done.

If I could give Gerron 50 stars, I would. He filmed my father's funeral which I could not attend. He kept in touch with me throughout the process, and was able to deliver on my many requests. Family members who were at the funeral commented to me on how professional and friendly he was. And I was able to view the film the same day. I would definitely hire him 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.
