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.

I hired Jami to film a surprise proposal--she didn't just sit back and film the event--she helped produce it. Jami got there early to help set up and stage everything, and took both video and photos. She sent us a beautifully edited video the very next day. I would recommend Jami for any event, and especially, for a surprise proposal!

I was looking for a photographer for a small bridal shower gathering and narrowed my choices down to a few professionals. Celeste was prompt with her responses and very professional when in contact with me regarding the event. She kept me updated about what she would do on her end as far as getting props and made sure things were confirmed way in advance. At the event, Celeste was very professional and took INCREDIBLE photos. She arrived early to set up and was very polite and respectful of current health guidelines (wore a mask and kept safe distance). Our gathering ran a little later than we expected, but Celeste was so kind to offer staying a little while longer and also to check in about what other types of photos we’d want before she left. I was extremely satisfied with her services and the quality of the photos, which we received even earlier than anticipated! Thank you so much Celeste!!
