Tyler was so easy to work with and gave us the quality images we desperately needed for our preschool. We had hired 2 photographers prior to him that we did not have any luck with. His price point is fair, he got the images to us that night and he more than delivered with the quality of his photos. We will absolutely use him again! Thanks so much for being so easy to work with, Tyler!

(I procured the Cohens' services November of 2015; I apologize for the tardiness of my review.) I looooooove Marie and Norman! They provided my party with a talking piece, a fun activity, and a party favor all in one! I felt secure from the moment Norman and I spoke on the phone for the first time. We actually spoke for an hour; he answered my questions and explained the process as well as the contract. Marie is very sharp and handled the deposit, payment, and contract proceedings well; on the day of my party, they sent me the template for my pictures and made changes without frustration (that I perceived anyway). At my birthday party, my friends and guests LOVED the booth and acted like little kids, trying on and wearing every prop the Cohens provided. The Cohens were thorough in the amount of props they offered, I must say. I appreciate how down to earth they are. They mingled and danced with my guests; they weren't "too professional" in behavior and easily conversed with my friends and I; they were more like party participants than photographers! They were very flexible with the change in booths, payment type, and the dismantling of their booth. I know that the changes were simple, per se', but I do not take it for granted that they rolled with them and accommodated me (I am very particular and high-maintenance). Because of their willingness to please, their recognition of and special discounts for teacher/service-oriented persons, and personable attitudes, I will use them EVERY time I have a party! Thanks Guys!

Jeff did a great job - he came over, shot eight total shots of two products in just under an hour and delivered the final shots later that day. Great service at a great price from a friendly and professional photographer, would definitely hire again.

This was, without a doubt, the very best corporate photography experience I've ever had -- and I've been around. :) From the outset of my inquiry on Thumbtack, Dave kept in touch and communicated continuously. His estimate was exactly what I'd hoped. The experience: exceptional and outstanding. This assignment was challenging, having to do 213 professional headshots in 12 hours, as well as shoot candids at our 60th anniversary party. I didn't know how we would do it but David came up with the brilliant idea of having two photographers shooting simultaneously. Not only did it work, but he and his assistant were an utter joy to work with: outgoing, happy, professional, kept a perfect pace, and knew how to put a bunch of introverted engineers at ease. The outcome: beautiful headshots, and fantastic candids. I cannot recommend Dave highly enough. Don't look at anyone else -- he's The Guy!

Emily was great to work with for my son's newborn photoshoot. She was easy to schedule with, flexible, and great when he didn't cooperate. She also edited the photos and got them to me the next day, which was great. AND the photos were beautiful. All in all she was great to work with and I was really happy with the photos I received.

Last year, I had a pleasure working with Richmond's finest photographer Kenny Stockman. I must admit Kenny's studio space, his lighting techniques, backdrops and most of all his style of directing clients into generating great shots, is remarkable. I had desired to showcase my traditional wardrobe from Pakistan in my photos incorporating with the holiday of Christmas. Kenny was very helpful and made the transition smooth. The photos turned out spectacular & elegant!

We have worked with Brittany since our daughter was born 4 years ago and as long as we are both in the Richmond area I will not use anyone else. She has taken yearly family photos as well as beautiful newborn pictures with my second child. Brittany is incredibly professional, but her personality is laid back and fun. She recommends fantastic venues in the Richmond area. There are some posed shots but by far our favorite photos are the ones where Brittany was able to capture our family's personality while we were naturally interacting with each other. She takes time to get to know us so when she takes a photograph it is a true representation of who we are. I would highly recommend her!

Karen has been great! We met her to shoot the first birthday of our son. She was amazing. Was able to make everyone feel at ease and photos were very natural. Since then she did my maternity photo shoot and most recently the newborn shoot. She was very gentle with the children and was able to have my toddler relax and participate!! Definitely recommend her!

Gosh, where do I begin? Simply put, Alyse captures the magic of life and love. The first time the fella and I met her in person was on our wedding day and she immediately felt like an old friend, putting us both at ease. And she killed it behind the lens! We have so many incredible pictures to remember that special day forever ever. Alyse was THE photographer we wanted for our wedding, but wasn't sure we'd be able to find.

My family has worked with this professional for approximately 10 years on numerous occasions. Birthdays, engagement, wedding, pregnancy announcement, gender reveal, holidays.... You name it and ImagesByKecia has provided top notch service. The photos that are captured and the quality that they are presented are nothing short of amazing! I never have to wonder what photographer to call, because we've been dealing with the best in the business for over a decade.

Brian did some outdoor family portraits for us, and they are wonderful! Before the shoot, he took the time to speak with me about location, clothing, and the types of poses I was looking for. During the shoot, he was very professional and organized; plus, he was great with my three kids! He also gave us lots of tips and suggestions throughout the shoot. The photos turned out beautifully! I would definitely recommend Brian and plan to use him again in the future.

When reviewing photographers at his price point, he was by far the most professional and artistic. He was very easy to work with, communicated in a friendly fashion, sent the photos to us within 10 days of the event, and the quality of his work is top notch. I am already considering using him for another project. He’s fantastic all-around! Highly recommend him!

Erin was so wonderful, professional, down to earth, and easy to work with. She took not just the regular wedding photos but captured some special moments in between during wedding and reception. She even was stepped in a mud hole to make sure she got a good picture with my husband's family and brought out paper fans for us and our family to cool off from the heat after the ceremony. She went above and beyond to make sure our day was special. Thank you so much Erin!

Sarah shot Mother's Day pictures of my daughter and myself. They were fantastic! I normally hate pictures of myself but LOVE the ones she did. I gave a picture book as a Mother's Day gift to my mom and she loved the book and the pictures. She made us feel comfortable and relaxed when getting our pictures taken. She is a wonderful photographer and can't wait to take more pictures with her in the future.

    I have seen Justin Sheets work a Wedding and recently had the opportunity to have him over and take pictures of my Son. The Wedding shots were so picturesque that many people have asked me about his services. He is professional, quick and very experienced. It was an extreme challenge to work with my schedule and weather conflicts, and every time we picked a new date he was understanding and courteous about the needed change. He is very good with children, and my Son gravitated towards him immediately and therefore getting great shots of him seemed an easy task. I would highly recommend him for any type of photographic needs due to his laid back demeanor and style.

    I was provided with photography services by Tiffany Michele Images. I was thoroughly pleased with the service I received and have booked Tiffany a total of 3 times. I was first referred by a friend. Tiffany took maternity pictures for me. I was so pleased with the photos, Tiffany's creativity, the package prices, and Tiffany's professionalism that I booked her for my baby shower and my daughter's Christening. In addition, Tiffany also traveled approximately an hour for the Christening. This was extremely convenient for me. I appreciate her willingness to please her customers. The photos taken by Tiffany are always beautiful and I love the poses. I plan to book Tiffany Michele Images for future special events and would recommend her to anyone.

      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.
