Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.

Are there ways to be safe if I hire a photographer when social distancing?

If you decide to hire a photographer, see if the photographer can take photos outdoors or in a large space so all involved parties can maintain the recommended distance between themselves. You should also sanitize surfaces, avoid handshakes, don’t make any other physical contact and use digital platforms to complete payments. Speak with a local photographer in your area to put a strategy in place.

Susie S.
April was amazing and captured our son’s 1st birthday party for us. She was quick to reply on the initial request and followed through promptly with all requests. She came early to the event and made sure to find out what kind of photos we wanted, who were family members, get photos of the decor and tables before they got tampered with, etc. She was amazing! I would highly recommend her to any event photos!

Extremely satisfied and happy with the results. This pro did an awesome job of capturing precious moments. We didn’t pose much, simply enjoyed our event and end up with great and natural photos. Highly responsive and send my photos the next day.

Super excited and satisfied about Daria Nagovitz's Photography. I hired her via Thumbtack based on her photography on Thumbtack, her Web site and her event nightlife Facebook page. I wanted that modern, editorial look and she delivered. She captured my daughter's Sweet 16 birthday party beautifully. We hosted about 60 teenagers, boys and girls, at a hotel venue. Daria was very communicative with me in the weeks before the event by email. Evening of the event she arrived promptly on time ready to work. She was organized and worked all evening unobtrusively. Daria photographed the party decor details, the birthday girl with her friends while they were socializing, the dancing and the birthday cake presentation, and group shots, too. The pictures came out sharp and clear. After the pictures were ready days later, many of the guests were clamoring for the Sweet 16 pro photos for their social media posts. My daughter's friends were ecstatic to see such professional photography of themselves having fun together--rather than the usual cellphone pictures they take of each other. Her photography made our Sweet 16 party look even better than I expected -- like a cool, magazine layout, and now her friends want pro photography for their parties, too. I would definitely hire Daria again. I highly recommend her. Thank you, Thumbtack for the connection!

Scott helped a good friend of mine, on very short notice, with some photography for a butterfly release after a burial. It was a sensitive event but Scott was amazing. The text from my friend simply read, 'A beautiful and caring photographer you picked. Thank you.' This made me smile. Scott was also very responsive and worked within our budget. I wholeheartedly recommend him.
