Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a photographer during the COVID-19 pandemic?

The best way to set up an appointment or a consultation with a photographer near you during the COVID-19 pandemic is by conducting an online search. Start by scheduling a call with the photographer. If possible, it may be better to use a video call service so that the photographer can get an idea of the site location. Take this opportunity to discuss safety measures you can take during this time, as well as whether it’s safe to complete the project now or simply postpone it.

How can I find out if a photographer is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

Consult your city or state’s government websites, which typically have information on which services are deemed essential during the pandemic. 

For national information, visit CISA’s page on Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19. Here, you can find 16 different types of essential infrastructure sectors that can continue operating unimpeded during the pandemic. But some, not all, jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure.

Do photographers offer remote or virtual services?

Photography happens in person, but photographers may be able to offer other remote services safely during the COVID-19 pandemic. For example, they may be able to offer editing and other post-processing services. 

If you see that a photographer is offering remote services in their profile, contact them and ask what those services include.

Does a photographer need to enter my home?

There are many situations in which a photographer does not need to enter your home. It’s not uncommon for people to prefer to have their pictures taken outdoors. If you're hiring a photographer, maintain safe distances, avoid being in the same room, sanitize all involved surfaces and conduct payment using digital platforms. You can discuss strategies as you complete your search for local photographers.

Can I use digital payments to pay for wedding and event photography services?

As digital forms of payment and money transfer are becoming more popular, wedding and event photographers are likely to use digital services. These include PayPal, Zelle, Google Pay, Venmo, Square Cash and more. As you search online for local wedding and event photographers, ask them if they accept digital payments and, if so, which ones you can use. And make sure to have a strategy in place for safe social distancing.

Brian did a fantastic job photographing our wedding. He arrived on-time and was professional and nice. He really did a nice job of photographing candid shots that really captured the wedding and events. The photos were excellent quality. I highly recommend him.

At the last minute, I needed to hire a photographer in Birmingham (where I do not live) for a 90th birthday party. Jennifer was amazing. She responded quickly, she was flexible and was the perfect fit for our event! AND, great photography as a result!

Christine did and awesome job! We needed someone for an event pretty quickly and not only was she quick to respond to my initial inquiry, but every one after that as well. The photos turned out great and she's be "starred" as a top go-to photographer on our list of freelance photographers to reach out to in the future. Great work!

Ian surpassed my wildest expectations! He shot my mother’s retirement party and captured every moment of the celebration in stunning detail. Ian kept in regular contact as the date approached, making sure we were aware of his flow and that he was aware of ours, arrived early to familiarize himself with the environment, seamlessly made himself a part of the event and returned the gallery timing unlike I have experienced with other professionals. He is great at what he does and enthusiastic about doing it! If you’re looking for a photographer this is definitely your man!
