When you mention your a Photographer: Most folks immediately think of weddings. Well we don't do weddings. We respect those who do, as it is very hard work. However our passion is for other areas. We shoot mostly objects which are the result of the labor of many individuals. Buildings, and cars seem to pull us in their direction. We endeavor to portray the subject at it's best. Paying attention to details such as, verticals in our architectural and real estate shots is but one thing we do for our customers. Our auto photography is special to each of our clients. From full quarter view of the car to detail shots of emblem, wheels, and inte...

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?

Ambitious, goal setter! Always gives 110% effort to his clients. Would definitely work together on future projects!

Mark was so knowledgeable about how to work the evening’s light to achieve the best photos possible! He was knowledgeable about equipment use and took his time to learn my goals for our photography session. He explained a lot of the process while doing the photo shoot and wouldn’t settle for less than perfection with the photos! I received my photos in no time at all, and the quality is professional and perfect. Mark followed up to make sure I was very happy with the photos taken and offered to make things right if there was something else I wanted from them. Little did he know they were perfect. It’s amazing that he was able to capture the spirit of the subject so accurately and beautifully. I’d recommend Momentworx Photography to anyone!

Lars is an amazing photographer. It was so great talking and working with him. He photographed my son's graduation party this past summer. The photos turned out great, he was no bother to any of us, and he even took some family portraits for us. I'll work with him again and can absolutely recommend him!
