Writing a letter of thanks to a photographer for a job well done or for a rectified problem with an order is a thoughtful gesture and will be appreciated by the recipient. Thank you letters allow the recipient, in this case your photographer, to know that you appreciated the services and products that were supplied. When writing a thank you letter, write from the heart and don't concentrate on writing everything "just right." Convey your true emotions and gratitude toward the photographer and his work.

Write your name, address, phone number or e-mail address, and date in the top right corner of the letter or card. Typing a thank you letter is permissible, but writing it by hand adds a personal touch.
Greet the photographer using the name or title you would use in face-to-face conversations. Begin the greeting with "Dear" or "Hello."
Express your gratitude for the photographer's quick service, excellent photographs, professional demeanour or whatever characteristic that prompted you to write a note of thanks. Include words that convey thanks such as "appreciate" and "grateful."
Explain in the second paragraph why you are writing to the photographer. Give the dates of when you visited the studio for a photography session. If there was a problem solved, briefly describe the problem and how and when it was resolved. If there was an applicable photo package number or title, give that information so the photographer will know what you purchased.
Restate your feelings of gratitude, such as "Thank you again for the beautiful photographs of our daughter's christening. We will cherish the portraits forever."
Provide a closing word, such as "Sincerely," "With thanks" or "Ever grateful," and sign your name.
Write your name and address in the upper left corner on the front of the envelope. Center and write the photographer's name or business name and address on the front of the envelope. Seal the envelope and place a first-class stamp in the upper right corner if you plan to mail it. If you frequently see the photographer, deliver the thank you letter or card in person to her studio or offices.
Tips and warnings
- If you plan to refer friends of family to the photographer, or have already done so, mentioning that to the photographer reaffirms your trust and appreciation for the products or services provided you by him, his staff or business. Referrals may translate into additional business for the photographer, which will also be appreciated.
