Based on a referral, my fiance’, Gary, and I hired Ryan Jakubowski for our wedding photographer. From the initial contact with Ryan, through the delivery of our wedding pictures to our front door, he was knowledgeable, helpful, personable and professional. We found Ryan so easy to work with! On our wedding day, he maintained a balance of providing direction and allowing space. Although our ceremony included a small group, and was relatively brief, he was creative and thorough in capturing all the poses and moments that we wanted, and we will cherish the pictures. We are sure Ryan would provide the same high level of service and professionalism for any size wedding event!
Anne did my maternity pictures. She did a great job. She was really nice and kind. She arrived before time and she brought with her everything we needed for the session. The price wasn’t bad either. After all we received our pictures after only few days and they were great. Definitely hire her again for newborn pics.
By far the best experience I have ever had with a professional photographer in my entire career. Craig was always available, took the time to understand the specific goals I was looking to accomplish with the photos I requested, was extremely reasonable on price, and provided me with top notch photographs of an asset that had its fair share of challenges. I highly recommend Craig, individually, and his services as well.
Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.
Our first experience with Kerry was simply the best! She was so sweet and patient with our daughter. Everything from her attention to detail, time spent with us, pricing, to the final product was top notch. We couldn’t have picked a better photographer and can’t wait for our 1 year session.
Melody was GREAT. While this was my first ever photo shoot, I must say, Melody has upped my expectations from future photographers because she did an AMAZING job at the photographs and the way she conducted herself. Having said that, I will likely take my next session with her very soon 🙂
Highly professional and high quality photographer with a dedication and passion for his work! Everyone compliments the work that Gil has done for our family and friends!
Mr. Kidd took prom photos of my daughter and her date. He was very professional, yet blended in to ease my daughter’s nerves. He arrived before we did, suggested several different poses we hadn’t thought of and he reviewed the location before our arrival. He created amazing snapshot memories for her. Thank you Mr. Kidd.
J was an OUTSTANDING hire for our event. We hosted an alumni reception in Detroit and didnt know any photographers in the area so I looked to Thumbtack. He really worked with our requests and captured everything we wanted! He made sure to get the committee and staff photographed, all of the photos has great lighting, a majority of the photos were staged with alumni looking and smiling at the camera (name tags visible) which is fantastic and exactly what we hoped for! It takes a great photographer to ask people to stage for the camera and yet also capture excellent candid photos. I wish we could use him for every market we visit! Even before the event, he was very professional on the phone and in correspondence. I would recommend him to anyone needing an event photographer.
Chelsie is the BEST! She’s been doing our family photos for 3+ years now and every time she surprises me with the quality of photos she gets… even when one of my toddlers wants nothing to do with having their photo taken! She never fails to come up with ways to get the kiddos to smile and makes the entire photo shoot fun and enjoyable for all of us. I would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone looking for a great photographer.

This was an incredible experience. While I’m usually awkward and uncomfortable in front of the camera, Ellena made it painless and fun!! I love the way she captured a natural look on my face. She gave us the most amazing “blizzard” photos. Not too many people would be willing to work in the FREEZING cold, but she did!! The photos she gave us are priceless. They are special and unique!!
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.
Lisa was wonderful to work with! We absolutely love our maternity photos and plan to have her take our sons photos when he is born! She is very professional and open to suggestions:) I highly recommend Lisa Mancuso Horn photography!
I have worked with Mark on 2 separate ocassions. Once when he took action shots for the Chelsea Varsity Hockey team 2 years ago and again recently to have my daughters senior pictures taken. Both cases I was extremely happy. Almost too happy as it is almost impossible to choose which pictures we want to order. Thankfully, we are not restricted to a certain amount of posses like you are with some photographers. You order the posses and sizes you want. We saw some of the digital pictures the very next day, the balance of the shots within the week. Turnaround is very fast. He is very professional and open to new ideas. I will definately use his services again.
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.
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.
Excellent photographer! We hired them for our engagement shoot and civil wedding. Highly recommend Tyquan and his team! Tyquan did our engagement shoot and did a phenomenal job, EXCELLENT photos and we were super happy with everything! He helped us with all the poses, where to shoot, angles, etc. and was very fun to work with. We thought he did an awesome job and were super impressed. He was really laid back and let us checkout the photos as he shot them. Went the extra mile and beyond with everything and definitely made everything very light, easy and fun! The photos during the civil ceremony were incredible as well! Overall they did an awesome job, were very responsive and always available for questions (we usually text, and Tyquan gets back to us very fast), great group of guys, all super nice and easy to work with throughout. Definitely keeping these guys as my #1 pick for what comes next for us (baby showers? other events!). Overall my wife and I were and are super happy with -everything-! Again, amazing photos, fun to work with, great group of guys and they definitely know their stuff! Thanks again for everything and keep up the great work!

I am very happy to have met and hired Jeffrey to be the photographer of my mother’s 80th birthday party & family reunion. Very professional and respectful all while asking people to get in the right position for the photo shoot. I receive many positive comments from family members on Jeffrey’s professionalism and friendliness. For my next event, I will be contacting and hiring Jeffrey Loos Photography!
I just want to say that I couldn’t have asked for a better company to work with than Red Archie. They were very responsive and professional from the moment we made initial contact on Thumbtack to receiving hard copies of my photos and look book. And I can’t say enough about the pictures. I was extremely happy with how our vacation photos turned out. Working with a toddler can be extremely difficult, and Kuwan nailed our “money shot.” I’ve worked with several photographers over the years and I can honestly say I wish I had known Red Archie back then because I would have hired them for my other events. And I was so excited about our photos, I’ve already ordered our Christmas cards for this year! Thank you, Red Archie! I hope to work with you again!
I’d like to see if you have a package for newborn, 3 month, 6 month, 9, month, 1 year with edited, high-resolution images with printing rights.
Jacob is a wonderful photographer, the experience(s) felt natural and he makes me feel comfortable and confident being in front of the camera. His vision and style is unique and he always has creative ideas!
Maury did an excellent job at my daughter’s high school graduation ceremony. I was looking for someone to take grad photos of my daughter walking across the stage so my husband and I could sit back and watch the ceremony with no worries. The booking process was simple. We talked on the phone for the first time and I trusted him! He was on time, professional, relaxed and personable. He is very easy to work with and this meant a lot to us. We were never rushed. He took photos indoors and outdoors. We had over 30 family members and he treated everyone very nicely. Everyone had a chance to take a photo with the grad. I received the photos the next day as promised. There were a lot of different types (some were in black and white, some were in color, some had a special background, etc). It was a nice variety at no extra cost. The price and quality were excellent! Thank you Maury!! We will see you for some holiday photos!
I have never worked with a more personable photographer. Zach is extremely friendly and professional and is always a pleasure to shoot with. He is very easy to work with and has a great eye when composing shots. The shoots are always fun and I’m always beyond happy with how the photos turn out. I would strongly recommend his services!
