After roughly 20 years in marketing and advertising I think the best part of running my own studio is meeting and impressing new clients. Looking at a business for the first time and figuring out how to boost their visuals (and credibility with their audience or customers) is a challenge that lets me stretch my creativity and come up with solutions that exceed expectations. At the end of the day photography (like all things marketing) is about results. The most important is of course the long win - watching my photography attract new customers to do business with my clients, and watching their sales and reputation increase directly because o...

Cindy M. says, "Jamie was so easy to work with. We had family pictures taken with a 2 1/2 year old and a six month old and Jamie was so patient and kind. He took all the pictures we asked and stayed with us beyond the time we had agreed on. I felt like I was working with a friend even though we had just met. After the pictures were taken, he kept in touch and let me know his progress. I couldn't be happier with the pictures and more importantly the experience. We had so much fun!" Read more

Jamilex R. says, "I couldn't have chosen a better photographer for my wedding. Steve made sure all my pictures came out great, he made everyone feel comfortable, and even shared laughs with my family. I absolutely loved how all my wedding pictures came out. He was very professional. I was planning my wedding from across the country so it was nice to receive a quick response to my millions of questions. Would definitely reccomend him to anyone looking for a good photographer. Jamilex R. on December 27, 2016" Read more

Your photography questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Fash.

How much does a photographer cost?

The average cost to hire a photographer is $100 to $250 per hour, depending on their experience. However, photography prices vary significantly depending on the type of event or photo session:

Do you tip photographers?

The standard tipping etiquette for photographers depends on the type of photo session or event and how happy you are with the photographer's service:

  • Tip a wedding photographer $50 to $200 if the photographer exceeds your expectations. If the photographer works with a second shooter, be sure to tip the second photographer separately.
  • Consider tipping a family portrait photographer, pet photographer, or newborn photographer if you're happy with the photo session. However, tipping is not expected for family portraits taken at a big box store like JC Penney or Wal-Mart.
  • Tipping a photographer is not expected for headshots, commercial photography, real estate photography, or architectural photos.

If you're happy with the photographer's service, post a positive review online and share their photos on your social media.

How can I save money on a photographer?

Follow these tips to save money when you hire a photographer:

  • Book a "mini-session" – a shorter photo session that lasts only 20 to 30 minutes.
  • Choose your favorite photographers and follow them on social media. Some photographers may provide deals and exclusive offers.
  • Hire a less experienced photographer. However, be sure to review their portfolio to confirm they have enough skill to meet your photo needs.
  • Purchase prints from an online retailer instead of ordering them from the photographer.
  • Bundle multiple photo sessions for a discounted price. Some wedding photographers bundle engagement and wedding photos. Other photographers offer a bundle for newborn photos plus additional sessions as your child grows.

How far in advance should I book a photographer?

Book a wedding photographer as early as possible, ideally as soon as you've confirmed the date with your venue. Headshot, commercial, pet, and family portrait photographers typically don't require as much advanced notice. However, a popular, in-demand photographer may be booked out several months in advance.

How can I find the best photographer near me?

Follow these guidelines when searching for a photographer to ensure you find one who is the best match for you:

  • Look for photographers who specialize in the type of photography you want. A photographer who specializes in weddings won't be the best choice for a newborn baby photo shoot, and vice versa.
  • Review their online portfolios to confirm you like their photography style and aesthetic.
  • Read photographer reviews on Fash and Google.
  • Get a contract in writing before making a deposit.
  • Discuss the photo usage and printing rights to confirm how both you and the photographer can use the images. Photographers typically retain the copyright to the images, allowing them to use the photos for marketing and social media.

What questions should I ask a photographer?

Ask these questions to help you choose the best photographer for your needs:

  • How long have you been in business?
  • What type of photography do you specialize in?
  • What is your photography style?
  • Do you have an online portfolio I can view?
  • How far in advance should I book my photo shoot?
  • What deposit do you require, and is it refundable?
  • Do you have a photo studio? If not, where will you take the photos?
  • What should I do to prepare for the photo session?
  • How will you deliver the final photos to me?
  • How long will it take to get the photos?
  • Do you offer printed items or photo albums?
  • Who owns the rights to the photos?
  • Will you use my images on social media or your website portfolio?

Jess H.
I needed a last minute headshot for work, and Steve went above and beyond to deliver. Not only did he let me book on a Friday night, but he let me take as many photos as we needed with different poses/backgrounds/etc until we got something that truly worked. Moreover, the photos were edited and delivered to my inbox that night! Steve's pricing is extremely fair and he is a truly skilled professional- I will definitely work with him in the future and highly recommend! Jess H. on February 4, 2017

We were on our honeymoon trip in Bora Bora and chose Stephan and Bonnie to capture the special moments for us. They did an outstanding job selecting the best shooting spots and helping us with our poses. In the afternoon we booked for the shooting, the weather was not very good. Stephan and Bonnie were very patient to wait for the sky to clear. While the weather was not getting any better, they offered to come again the next morning to continue the shooting. The photos are absolutely beautiful and we are very glad to have chosen Stephan and Bonnie! Highly recommended!
