Marian and Mike Linett were and amazing couple to meet and were very professional when it comes to there photography business. There prices were very affordable even on a budget and when you visit them to discuss what you want for your photos in there home they make you feel very welcomed. Marian was the one who was our photographer. She was so nice, funny and very outgoing and her photos for me and my bride came out amazing. She knows what places to take the pictures at the Founders Inn to make the wedding experiance amazing. She even showed up a little early to help out my bride when she was getting ready. I would deffinetly recommend Marian and Mike Linett to be your photographer for your wedding. A Deffinet Five Star with out a doubt..Thank you Marian and Mike Linett You guys are the best!!

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.

Crystal was my wedding photographer and decorator for my wedding and she made my vision come to life. I told her what I wanted my wedding to look like and she did it and more. I was in awe when I saw her final results. the pictures that she took were all gorgeous. I haven't yet decided which ones to blow up and keep as my favorites. She took soooooo many that they made me smile for days and days. Her personality and professionalism was at 100% and she made my guest feel comfortable and have a good time. She kept everyone laughing and had the most creative poses that we will cherish forever. Crystal was definitely a joy to have as a part of my wedding and I couldn't have asked for a better decorator and photographer to be a part of my day. Crystal definitely made it fun. She even wore coral and gray which were my wedding colors. Definitely a bonus. If you need a photographer and or decorator then Crystal is the one for you.

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 called Viki and told her our intentions of having my daughter's senior pictures taken while on our short vacation at the beach in Virginia. She was able to get back to us very quickly and helped us make it happen. Viki was on time, very professional, funny and very friendly. We were very comfortable with her, and a week later she sent us all the pictures she took and loved them all. We definitely would recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer!!

Love her!! She's captured my family from engagement, our (HUGE) wedding, my maternity session, my daughters newborn session, her 1 year smash cake session and then our family session! Brandi captures every priceless moment, candid, posed, you name it, and has the most bubbly, fun personality, I couldn't ask for more in a photographer and will use her for years to come! I'll never forget when she took care of us on our wedding day, 11 HOURS and she was 8 MONTHS pregnant! Her dedication to her work and absolute talent is unparalleled! If you're looking for a photographer that gets a 'natural' smile, she'll stand on her head to get your kids giggling, works on the adults, too!

Truly blessed with the decision we made for Daissy to be our wedding photographer. She is so knowledgable and skilled at what she does. Couldn't have asked for any better.

Shelly is phenomenal with kids. My rambunctious twins have had their pictures taken by Shelly since they first came home from the hospital (and they are going to be three). She has always been able to capture each of their personalities through her photos. Whether it is sitting pretty like my daughter typically does to my son's running wild through a field of flowers, Shelly always catches their looks of wonder and amusement. Best photographer for our little family!

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.

As a family, Denneco has been “the” photographer for our family. He has taken pictures of our play ministry as well. He does not just take pictures, he captures moments that can be relived once you see them again. Photography is not a job for him; it is a “moving ministry”. He also locates places that will flow with the memory that you are trying to capture.

Professional photography service was great, quality of work and result is amazing, was able to capture the great moments of the event that took place in our workplace in an hour and a half. The best part is that the place was packed and left little room for the photographer to work with but was still able to get great shots of us and made the place looked grand! Would definitely contact you again for future events. More power to you and thank you for the awesome work you do!

      Q & A

      Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

      Where is the best place to take baby pictures?

      Baby pictures are among the most popular types of portrait photography, and most newborn photographers are well versed in the best places to take baby pictures in their local areas. Some newborn photographers will come to the hospital to shoot the baby within a day or two of birth, while others have set up their studios to accommodate the needs of infants. Some parents prefer to have the newborn photographer come to their home or travel to a favorite park or other outdoor location. Like any portrait photography, the best place to take baby pictures is the place you like best and that will yield the types of photos you want of your baby, whether that’s posed and carefully lit studio portraits or spontaneous, casual photos at home. Work with a local newborn photographer to find a safe, calm location with great lighting and some privacy for your family.

      How much does baby photography cost?

      Portrait photography provides parents with lasting images of the first whirlwind months of a newborn’s life. The cost varies based on several factors, including the length and location of the session, the number of photos provided, and the amount of editing and retouching the photographer does. The national average cost for baby photos is $150-$200. Some baby photographers charge by the number of photos provided, typically ranging from an average of $299 for 20 high-resolution edited photos, to an average of $399 for 35 photos, to $499 for all of the images taken in a single session. Props and location affect the cost, too; an elaborate studio shoot with props and professional lighting may increase the cost to $600-$700 for 20-50 photos. Adding a second location or asking the photographer to travel can add $70-$250 to the cost of the session. Photographers may also charge extra fees for providing additional photos and DVDs, scheduling weekend sessions, and shooting siblings. Expect to pay at least a $50 deposit when you book a portrait photography session.

      When should you take newborn photos?

      Few styles of portrait photography are as tricky as newborn photos — the unpredictable infant is always in charge! The best way to ensure a successful photo shoot is to work with a local newborn photographer within the first two weeks of the baby’s life. Some photographers even work with hospitals to offer newborn sessions within a day of the baby’s birth. But newborn photographers usually recommend scheduling a shoot during the baby’s first two weeks of life, while the baby is still sleepy and relatively cooperative, especially for posed or studio shots. During this time, babies are easier to swaddle in blankets and dress in hats or headbands, and, because they often nap or nurse, can be staged with various props or be cuddled by their parents. For casual photos, most newborn photographers recommend shooting within the first six weeks of a baby’s life. Lifestyle portrait photography is more flexible and doesn’t require the baby to cooperate with multiple poses or props.
