Abbie is so great at what she does! She captured wonderful pictures of my daughter and I for a Mommy and Me session. She is great with children and somehow gets them to cooperate even when they are being a little difficult. We will definitely use her again for some family photos in the future!

I had 5 photographers to choose from and selected Sage Arts because of his previous work (found on his website). Anthony is professional and listened to my needs. The photo's turned out well and he charged me what he said he would. This was my first time hiring a professional photographer and next time I will ask more questions.

Max Cozzi photographed a family reunion to celebrate my 80th birthday. He did an amazing job of inconspicuously capturing beautiful candid moments between family members as well as well-composed group photos as requested.He is an artist as well as a professional photographer.

Jim is super easy to work with.... very nice, professional and flexible! His work products are great.... he provided a lot more options than most other photographers. Turnaround time was excellent; proofs were sent to me less than a day later. I would definitely use him again and I highly recommend him to others. Thanks Jim, for this painless process.

Melissa did an amazing job at our wedding! She had great ideas for the pictures, and was so professional and friendly. From our first conversation to the end of the wedding, it was absolute pleasure to work with her. I have been in many of my friends' and family's weddings, she far surpassed any of the previous photographers l have worked with. We are so glad we found her!

Alyson was great at helping me figure out thr best outdoor location for our family photos and was perfectly willing to travel near where i live. Once we met her at location, she arrived early and was very nice and approachable. She made our family feel very comfortable during the photo session and brought some photo examples and suggestions, which turned out to be exactly something i would have chosen. She will be sending me the photos in a few days, but she gave me a sneak peak from her camera and they turned out better than what i wpuld have imagined. I would certainly use Alyson Marie photography for my future photograph needs.

Wow!! On a scale of 5 stars I give Aryn and Luce Photography a 10!!!! Not only did we get the best offer from her, but I don't think our pictures could've turned out any better!! She put together engagement photos for us that blew our families away!!!! She can do amazing things behind a lens. She really analyzes the location and looks for great ways to take advantage of lighting, space and color. I can't think her enough! I wish her the most success, and if I meet anyone in Milwaukee that is looking for a great photographer, you can bet I'll urge them to use LUCE!!

Jason did a wonderful job with our wedding photos! He was unobtrusive, courteous, and professional as he captured the simplicity of the ceremony and took family photos afterwards. He was able to improvise in less than ideal (foggy!) conditions to produce beautiful photos. We would definitely recommend Jason and would hire him again for other photography needs.

Prairie was so great to have at our wedding reception! She was very sweet and hardly noticeable (I know that sounds weird but I’ve had photographers in the past that want to drive the event and take over and cause too much stress). We have her flexibility on timing but she did not abuse it at all. She stuck around until she got all of the best shots and did such a great job. We didn’t get a chance to meet before our event but she did exactly what I was looking for. Just a bunch of fun shots of people having fun and dancing the night away. Thanks Prairie!!

Joe is extremely professional but at the same time he treated us like family. His attention to detail is beyond excellent. We hired him for our wedding ceremony and some after-photos and he gave 150% to our project. I highly recommend him for anyone who is looking for a seasoned photographer who offers fair prices!

Burton is so reliable and pays special attention to detail which I always appreciate. I've used other photographers who just walk in a property and begin shooting pictures. Burton takes his time evaluating the best angle for photos. I also appreciate being able to view the photos before he leaves a property. His photos are great and I receive many compliments from my clients on his work. I highly recommend him!

With so many photographers to choose from, we knew quickly that Sarah was the right choice for our wedding day. She came highly recommended from a family friend. We had talked with several photographers but Sarah really stood out to us. She has a great personality and if you meet with Sarah you'll quickly understand what we're talkin about. We "clicked" with Sarah, so my husband and I booked her right away. We did not get that same vibe with the other photographers we spoke with. Our ceremony was outside in June. It was a very hot day, and I was ready to give up on photos for the day because I was so hot. Sarah kept us going and motivated us to push through it. She was so professional and never let the heat bother her. I'm really grateful she kept us going because we ended up with some amazing photos. She is so easy to work with and had some great ideas for us. Everything went so smooth. Sarah was very responsive to my questions, and trust me, I had a lot of questions! We are so happy our family friend recommended Sarah. We have some amazing photos to look back on!! If you are considering photographers for your wedding day, Sarah Baldwin photography should definitely be considered. You will not be disappointed...oh, and I'm super, super picky and have a tough time making decisions. This decision was so easy, and a no-brainer!!

Bonnie is a talented photographer and a wonderful person! We have had the privilege of having Bonnie capture some very important moments for us- from our wedding to maternity pictures to family portraits- and we can't say enough about how much we love the images Bonnie has created with us! Bonnie is very flexible and versatile; we have done studio sessions, a shoot in a park, wedding photos (ceremony, portraits, and reception), and even family photos at our home. Bonnie is great with our daughter, too! She has great vision, a wonderful personality, and her pricing is competitive and affordable. I can't say enough about how much we LOVE working with Bonnie!

I recently brought Larry a 70 year old black and white portrait of my family. It is the only portrait I have of my grandparents and their 5 children, including my Dad. I asked Larry to colorize the portrait. When he sent it to me, I was amazed. The colors seemed perfect and the portrait looked as if it had just been taken. I shared it with my extended family and they all were impressed. I can give a firm recommendation for anyone considering using Zamba services.

    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.
