San Diego Family Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

What Does a San Diego Family Photographer Do?

A family photographer takes photos of the family together including children and also different pictures of the group in different settings. This will include pictures of the mom and dad, the children, the pets and possibly even grandma, grandpa, uncles, aunts and cousins. In addition, they will have to edit all of your photos and spend a lot of time during the post processing stage to prepare your final pictures.

How Do I Find and Choose The Best San Diego Family Photographer?

There are several ways to find a good family photographer that will satisfy your expectations, including using the search engines, a local family photographer directory, and also word of mouth referrals from neighbors and friends. When reviewing your options always be sure to review the family photography galleries of the photographers you are considering to be certain you are choosing a photographer that takes pictures and photos in the style that you desire. What one family likes another may not, so it’s an entirely subjective process depending on the style of family photography you want. Always look for someone with significant experience, at least 5 years so you can be sure they are competent and have plenty of previous photo shoots to show as examples.

How Much Do San Diego Family Photographers Cost on Average?

Average prices and cost for San Diego family photographers will vary based on the experience of the photographer, the location, whether they have to travel long distance, and also how in demand they are due to their talent. On average, you can expect to pay $300 to $500 or more for a good family photographer session. Some that travel and are in high demand will charge $1,000 or more plus travel expenses. It is not advisable to choose a photographer that only charges $200 or less due to the fact that they may not have that much experience, but if their portfolio is good and you’re happy with their style, that may be an option for you.

Do You Tip a Family Photographer?

Most people do tip a family photographer, but it isn’t required depending on their fee. A tip of 10% to 15% is not uncommon and most have no problem tipping because of the relationship they develop with their photographer and the time spent throughout the day of the event.

What Questions Should I Ask San Diego Family Photographers?

  • How many family shoots have you shot?
  • What editing style do you use?
