I had seen Bree’s work on Facebook when a longtime friend had some pictures done for her boyfriend. My friend looked beautiful, and I wondered if my hubby would be interested in me taking any pics as a present for his big 4-0. I showed him Bree’s photos and he was all in. We looked at other photographers and their work, and we agreed Bree’s work was definitely the right style for us. I didn’t need to look like an art piece, heck, if I turned out half as gorgeous as my friend, it would all be okay by me! So I picked up the phone on a Saturday afternoon and talked to Bree. Working with Bree was easy. In one phone call I was set up for a session with so many choices I thought my head would spin. While I had the option of choosing an outfit from her extensive collection with lots of size range, I ended up using an outfit from home with one small missing piece. I could not find shoes I liked, and here was Bree to the rescue with not only one, but 3 pairs of shoes to choose the right pair! My makeup made me look at least 10 years younger, my hair was beautiful, and the Mimosas divine! Bree is really good at getting to know you in a short period of time so you are comfortable and opens up her home studio in an absolutely welcoming way. She’s good at her job, and has great passion for showing her subject in a way that is visually striking, and yet very true to the personality of the person on the other end of the camera. I was apprehensive, being in the midst of a weight loss journey, and not being as confident at photographing well, and Bree put me at ease. The only complaint I had was that I smiled so much I should have brought Vaseline for my teeth like a supermodel. :-) Then we got the images. I was so beautiful. Shames me to say I forgot I could look so beautiful. I don’t think my husband has skipped looking at the photos at least once a day since we got them back! This was a total game changer for my self confidence and I would do it again in a minute- and then do it again!

I hired Shawn Nichols for a corporate event which took place in late February 2016. Shawn definitely deserves all five (if I could give any more, I would) stars and a glowing review! I will admit I was hesitant to hire someone off Thumbtack – it was my first experience using Thumbtack and I didn’t quite know what to expect – but he blew it out of the park, completely delivered and really exceeded any of my expectations, with his work for this event! Shawn is going places with his photography, professionalism and strong work ethic and I look forward to following his career. Part of me hates to write such a great review for my own selfish reasons – I want him for all of our events! :] Shawn was hired for our annual corporate Employee Appreciation Event, which I fully planned (and attended) for the first year since starting with my company. One of the things I had noticed about previous years’ events was the lack of good photography. I had seen previous years’ photos and thought they really left something to be desired. When I put out a bid on Thumbtack looking for photographers, Shawn’s website and artwork jumped out immediately, I believed he could deliver. I spoke with him first on the phone and let him know what I was looking for – more artistic shots – and his time, thoroughness and genuine excitement was clearly evident from our phone call. It seemed like he was exactly who I was looking for. About a month before the event, I called Shawn and asked him if he could meet me for coffee that week, to have about a fifteen minute meeting to discuss some items for the party. He went out of his way (literally) to be flexible to my schedule and that fifteen minute meeting turned in to over an hour of his time sitting in Starbucks and talking Photography. From there, he then drove with me to Joann Fabrics to hand-select a backdrop for the event that would photograph well and tailored to my vision. This whole afternoon he spent meeting with me and shopping for photography backgrounds was unpaid. He didn’t have to do these extra things, he just did – he was really going above and beyond before the event even took place! Fast forward to the day of the event. Shawn and his two assistants (oh yeah – he brought two additional photographers to help him capture the night. I really felt we got a huge deal here because for the price of one photographer, we really got three! This was just another way Shawn went out of his way to ensure our event success) came a few hours early to set up one of our photography station backgrounds, and the get shots of a list of things before the event started. Leading up to the event, Shawn was incredible thorough in his communications; answering phone calls and emails quickly and in detail. He even thought of details I hadn’t and prompted me to provide a list of shots I wanted to get prior to the event, during the event, asked for an event timeline and for specific individuals whom he and his assistants should be aware of. I really appreciated those questions in retrospect, as I think they really added to the coverage of the event, and with the laundry list of to-dos I had leading up to the party, I appreciated him taking the time and initiative to look out for our ultimate priorities – photography and otherwise. Shawn and his assistants Rachel and Jeremiah were extremely professional, gracious, thoughtful to guests and efficient. They not only succeeded in my hopes for an hour of couple photos as guests arrived, then roaming event coverage; all three of them really went above and beyond to make sure every shot on that shot list was completed. Our guests loved having the backdrop couple photos, and I loved having all three of them there photographing – it was amazing to get the extra coverage during that couple photo hour that I didn’t know we would have! Shawn let me know the timeline of when I should expect photos delivered back, as the party wrapped up that night, but delivered a few days earlier. He met every goal I had with the photography aspect of the event. I told him several times that he was the easiest/best/nicest/most efficient vendor or staff I had working on our event, and I really do mean that. The photos back to me were in several files, so easy to open and access, and ranked by him in order of importance (for me). His love of photography and art is intrinsic and clear in his work. His photographs are beautiful and really highlighted the event for me, my company and so many of our guests. I look forward to having – and using – these photographs for years to come! During the time I was planning the event, and had been working with Shawn, I saw another opportunity come up within my company which I suggested Shawn, and he was hired for. Those pictures came back prior to our event, and when I saw those beautiful photos, I knew i was going to be happy with his work on the event. I can’t say enough great things about Shawn Nichols. You are lucky if you get the opportunity to hire him for any event, wedding, party, or general photography needs. Shawn will make you feel like you are his only client, and will really take your vision and bring it to life. He is so genuine and charismatic and it is wonderful to see someone excel at something they love, and do so well! I look forward to working with Shawn (and hopefully Rachel and Jeremiah too!) on any future business, event or personal photography needs I have!

There are photographers everywhere nowadays. It seems like anyone can go out and buy a fancy camera and study some poses and suddenly, they are a photographer. But what most photographers lack is a true artistic eye for detail, emotion and unique style that is true to their clients. Kyle is not only professional and great to work with, but he brings an experienced and detailed perspective that most other photographers cannot and do not offer. My family hired Kyle to take photos at our latest family reunion, and we were not disappointed. He did an amazing job capturing candid moments that showcased the joy, love and laughter within my family. My grandmother just turned 90 and we never know when our last gathering with her will be. But I feel really grateful knowing that Kyle helped us capture beautiful memories with her that look authentic and true to us. I will definitely be hiring Kyle again for other photography services!

We were thrilled with the pictures from Jason Kim Photography! He was easy to work with, responded quickly and agreed to meet us in our preferred location. He clearly loves his work and his enjoyment was infectious - my son reluctantly agreed to getting senior pictures taken but ended up really enjoying the process and the results. My husband and I are amateur photographers but were disappointed with our own results when trying to photograph our son, so we're so glad we decided to work with Jason. We never would have able to get such amazing results; we can take good pictures but nothing like what Jason was able to produce. And I felt like the pictures we received were better than a lot of my friends who spent much more. He's a pleasure to work with, gives great results quickly and is a great value. I highly recommend!

Greg was great. Professional, punctual, smart and efficient. Great use of light and settings to get the pro look. I'd use his services again. My one area that I wanted more of: I like Greg's eye but I wanted some more 'Holy WOW!' shots. Next time, I'd play a much bigger roll in directing as I was MIA most of the night. I want to LOVE this photographer's eye. With some photographers, I've learned , that means directing what you want.

Alex was my wedding photographer we were lucky to hear about through a friend of a friend, and we knew as soon as we met him we knew that he was going to be perfect. His relaxed and professional demeanor was exactly what I needed on the big day when I felt perpetually late and unable to make decisions! He was great at delivering direction in a way that was efficient for a crowd and we are so pleased with the shots he thought to capture of our best day ever. His prices were excellent and the resulting body of work is one of our greatest treasures. I'll definitely be hiring Alex again--next for baby photography!

John is by far one of the best photographers we've worked with—we hire photographers in 12 cities for corporate events we produce. He arrived early, took all the shots on our shot list, and is just a friendly guy. His work is just as great—the composition, color, and style. It's not easy to find a corporate photographer whose work and professionalism are of high-quality. Duffernutter Photography is our top pick for Seattle photography—and it should be yours too!

I definitely recommend Natalie and will hire her again in the future! I've hired her 3 times, both as a photographer and retoucher. 1. She photographed / retouched our small family wedding ceremony (7 people) -- including indoor dinner and outdoor family photos. 2. She photographed / retouched our larger wedding reception (100 people) -- outdoor and night photography. 3. She took professional headshots for me. She's warm and friendly - even family members and friends who claim they don't like having their photo taken loved working with her. People loved the photos, many ordered prints of themselves/their families from our wedding. She's also great at picking interesting backgrounds and I particularly like how she coaches you to bring out your best angles. Her retouching costs more, but definitely worth it for the photos we chose to print/hang. It's natural -- no cheesy photoshopping, so everyone looks great.

Andrew Achong is AMAZING! He delivers high level professionalism with a unique creativity I have yet to see others exude. In fact, when we were taking bridal portraits at the White House hotel in Biloxi, several staff members commented on the uniqueness of the shoot. They said that they see photographers in there constantly but all of them take the same shots. Not Andrew. He was laying on the ground, climbing on furniture and ledges, making you laugh (or in my case, helping me not be awkward) all to get the PERFECT shot. He definitely knows how to capture the moment. He loves black and white photos but, of course, is amazing with color as well. He shares a passion for photography that so many photographers have lost. You can tell he has fun doing it and that shows in his work. He is super flexible, efficient and accommodating. So much so that he was able to get my bridal portraits shot, edited, printed and displayed in less than a week before the wedding. Delivering the impossible! He is an exceptional guy and an even more remarkable photographer. He is incredible to work with and you will not be disappointed in his shots. He excels in capturing action shots with impeccable timing. He is super responsive and we always received our pictures from him so quickly! I used him for family portraits (including one baby and a toddler {takes skill}), bridal portraits, rehearsal dinner, and our wedding. I can’t say enough positive things about Andrew. I absolutely, without a doubt, recommend his services to EVERYONE. You will love reliving the moment with his photos.

Prasanthi did a great photography for our toddler’s bday event. We were searching for a photographer st very last min and she not only responded to our request but was very responsive during our communication. She arrived on time and was very professional during the whole event. She pretty much worked on her own and made sure to cover all aspects of the party. Pics quality was great and we were satisfied with the end results.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
