10+ of the Best Stock Photo Sites
Welcome back and happy Fourth of July!
We know you are all probably out BBQing and celebrating but we figured just incase you got bored that we would hit your inbox with a little fun.
This week we are sharing our favorite FREE and paid websites for stock photos because whether you are a blogger, business owner, or just a creative human being, it’s never a bad thing to know where you can find awesome, high-quality stock photos.
Okay, let’s get started!
- Unsplash: Unsplash is without a doubt my favorite free stock photo site. I always find unbelievable high-quality photos on there that always happen to fit what I am looking for. I wish they had a bit more feminine stock photos but either way they have pretty much every kind of real-life photo you can imagine.
- Pexels: Pexels is probably the second site I turn to if I can’t find a photo on Unsplash’s site. They have equally incredible photos which are also a great quality and are free
- Pixaby: Pixaby and Pexels are on about the same level. They both cover a wide range of stock photos, vectors, and art illustrations.
- Death to the Stock Photo: This site has both free and paid options. If you sign up for their email list they send you monthly free photos or you have the option to join their paid membership which is $15/month and you get access to all their photos.
- IdPinThat: This one is new-ish to my list of sites but I’ve come to find I love a lot of their photos. The search tool pulls photos from all different websites so it minimizes the need to search multiple sites.
- Haute Chocolate: The worlds prettiest, girly stock photos. This is my favorite paid site. Their flatlays are so pretty. They are great for bloggers, business owners or for individuals who like to make graphics.
- Ivory Mix: I fell in love with Ivory Mix and their clean styled photos. Their photos are a mix of feminine and masculine and most have a ton of negative space which is great when you need to add words to your photos.
- Oh Tilly: I love Oh Tilly’s styled photos. Similar to Haute Chocolate, their photos are very sophisticated and fit with most women entrepreneur’s style.
- White Heart Design Co: I love how simple and classic their photos are. Their photos are more minimalist style and they are affordable. Their images can be easily used for marketing.
- Turquoise + Palm: Turquoise + Palm is another great paid site. They have a lot of contributors so you get a bunch of different styles. I also love that they offer photo courses so if you are interested in learning how to take your own photos or stock photos this is a good site to check out.
- Bloguettes: Once a week they share their ‘stock that rocks’ stock photos on their Instagram. They have all the photos on their site in their library and if you pay for the monthly membership you get access to all the photos but I love checking their IG because they always have great BTS shots of their office life and stock photos.
- Canva: When in doubt, turn to Canva. They have different styled templates and you can pay $1 to use the photo or image in the template. They also have free options [which I only currently use] but if you are in a pinch and don’t have time to design or can’t find a photo, the $1 option is great.
- PicMonkey: PicMonkey, similar to Canva, now has templates available. However, their paid templates are included as long as you have an account. If you don’t have an account, they do have free templates available but since I have a paid account I’m not sure how many are actually available.
- Etsy: What can’t you buy on Etsy? I love that Etsy has become so popular and now business owners are finding creative ways to sell their services and showcase their talents. You can search for stock photos, buy fonts, or templates.
- Creative Market: Creative Market is such a boss site. You can find anything from blog themes, to fonts, to stock photos and more. It is seriously one of my favorite sites to search as a blogger.
Here is your pin-able:
