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.

Richard not only shoots your event...He lives your event with you and then re-tells it in his photos. I have not been paid to say any of these words. My son's Bar-Mitzvah was 3 weeks ago and as I look at all the fabulous JUMP-OFF-THE-PAGE photos Richard took? I can only wish I would have known and hired him back when my wife and I were married...because had HE photographed our wedding, we'd still be looking at THOSE photos today as well. Hire Richard. You will not be let down in any way, shape or form. He is a true gentleman and totally gifted behind the camera.

I decided to look for photography services for my daughters 1st birthday literally one day before her party. Samer responded right away and was so responsive from there on out. He had other events scheduled in other cities before and after and still managed to squeeze me in and showed up exactly when he said he would. He took wonderful photos and turned them around to us so quickly. I would highly recommend Samer!

Samer first of all is very professional. I was looking for a photographer that would take quality pictures and was reasonable. Not only was he professional, reasonable but he offered great customer service. He was at my event before it started ready to go. He mixed and mingled with my guests making them feel comfortable in front of the camera. He provided so many great pictures of my husbands 40th Soiree. Thanks Samer for being a great photographer and individual. If you are in need a professional, customer driven photographer you have found the right man. He comes HIGHLY RECOMMENDED....Tks Samer (Monica)

Amanda was the best..she was warm, friendly, blended right in with everyone...exceptional work and extremely attentive to capture all the moments. It was so great to enjoy every moment rather than worrying about taking photos. I definitely would use her for all my events as recommend her to others. would recommend very highly....

I cannot begin to explain how AMAZING Carl & Des were as photographers. They were super communicative from the very beginning which we sooo appreciated. As couples who have planned weddings know just how hectic & stressful it can be, hiring Carl & Des truly relieved any and all fears or worries regarding the photography. It also really relieved any stress knowing Carl & Des had already shot at our venue, Castaway Burbank and knew it very well. These two are true professionals. They were super friendly, efficient and fun & made everyone feel so comfortable while they took photos. We received so many compliments from our friends and family about how awesome these two were. We just got the photos back and they are BREATHTAKING. I would absolutely recommend Carl & Des for your wedding or special event. My husband and I both agree, they were probably our favorite vendor!! I really hope to be able to work with them again in the future and also refer them to family and friends. Thank you soooo much to Live Art Photography LLC for helping to make our dream wedding absolutely FLAWLESS!!!!
