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.

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.

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.

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.

Adrian was great to work with! All of our "requested photograph shots" were done plus more! Adrian and the additional photographer did a great job moving around the room, capturing the event as well as quickly following up with the link to the gallery to see the photos taken. I will be using Adrian T. Baird Photography for our other events and would recommend them for yours as well!

Justin was very professional and super responsive to emails and text messages prior to our event. He arrived early, did a fabulous job photographing the corporate event and was very prompt in providing us the photographs from the evening. We could not be happier the the results! I would absolutely recommend him without reservation.

Being new to Arizona, I was soo happy to meet Stephen, who just so happened to be from my home town in Florida ——I booked Penntography Studios for my soft launch event and he did a fantastic job. He was prompt, attentive, professional, (sometimes, I didn’t even know he was there - which is a great asset for an event photographer) - and the photos met my expectation!

We contracted Rita to photograph the grand unveiling of our new brand at a trade show at the Convention Center, then our hospitality event later that evening. She was easy to reach and responded quickly. We went over all of the logistics and created a timeline. A day or two before the event, we confirmed all the details. She arrived early and was ready to go. She took great photos of our new booth and very nice team photo. From our CEO's speech to the ribbon and cutting and opening reception, she took hundreds of great photos from all angles. We moved on to the hospitality event where Rita did an amazing job especially in getting our somewhat photo-shy guests to take hundreds of posed, fun and even crazy (in a super fun way) group photos. She captured folks bowling, shooting pool playing video games, dancing, etc. All in all, we couldn't have been happier with the entire experience. Her 5.0 rating is well-deserved.

What a great experience! Communication throughout the process was exceptional. I was from out of town looking for a photographer on short notice. Paris Audrey Photography (Paul) was the first choice based on his portfolio. Though the work was mainly wedding events, he was adaptable to the family photos we had in mind. I would definitely work with him again on the future and also look to recommend him to others on the area.

Throughout the whole process, Adam was terrific. He captured the aesthetic of our brand and truly brought out what we covet in our event photos to visually depict what our networking series is all about. He responds quickly, provides great value, is easy to work with, and even more importantly - takes terrific photos! I highly recommend! in addition, he provides extra value with excellent videography services as well. Adam's great. Hire him now for your next event!

We hired Jamie to shoot two large group photos for a corporate training and deliver prints by the next business day and he completed the job seamlessly and professionally. He was easy to get in touch with and very reliable. I would recommend Jamie for any photography job in the area and will continue to use him for future events!!

Great experience with Marion! Marion was already busy for the date of our event but she recommended another Photographer and they were great. Working with Marion to get everything set up was extremely easy and she always returned my calls and email quickly. Highly recommend!

Erica responded quickly to the inquiry. She understood the special nature of our event- a memorial service at the National Memorial Cemetery. She showed respect for the event and the people there. We are thrilled with the photos. She captured the significance of the place as well as the service. She captured very special moments for us.. and we hardly knew she was there. She was professional in every way and yet was kind and personable on a difficult day for us. We highly recommend her.

We hired Lori pretty last minute, and she jumped on board. She communicated very fast, showed up to our event ear as asked. She was friendly, professional, and we received our photos right away. I will definitely hire Lori again in the future. Thanks so much.

I wouldn't recommend and here's why... China and Chris seemed like amazing people. Pre-wedding they communicated well, helped out however they could, and just seemed like an awesome duo. Come our wedding day they were early, throughout the night we really enjoyed their company. Seeing them taking so many photos we were really excited to see the results. China gave us a few photos a couple days after the wedding, kind of like a sneak peak. And oh my goodness we loved them and became even more excited for the rest of the photos. Time goes by and we receive the email of our album and it had 187 photos in them, and I swear I saw them take hundreds of photos. Nevertheless we looked through and the photos we did get were AMAZING. To this day we still enjoy looking, but here is where my issue starts. The photos we have were great BUT moments of our wedding day were missing. We had a dollar dance, no pictures of it; best man and maid of honor speeches, no pictures of it; throughout the night we asked for certain pictures like group photos and/or some of me and my husband, only some were included; the two most important people of the night, me and my husband, maybe have 4 or 5 photos combined of us throughout the night besides for the eventful moments. So what we did was ask China if there was any possibility of seeing about getting the rest of those photos. Even offered to pay more. We got one response that our file will be looked at the next day. Since then we have sent numerous amount of messages, one even just begging for some kind of response, and we never got it. We really do hate to leave a bad review because China and Chris seemed like great people. Sadly we are disappointed in the post-wedding communication.
