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.

Hide was amazing to work with! He was very kind and organized. He was on time for every meeting and most importantly, wedding day. He made sure we got all the shots we wanted and went with the flow of the event. Hide is very personable and easy to work with. The photos we received were great and more than we expected! You can’t go wrong with Takahashi Photography!

Hide came to the rescue when our prior Thumbtack Pro cancelled on us the morning of our event. I should have said so much more than I did initially about Hide, so I am back with this extended review. As a professional, Hide is quite awesome actually. He is everything that I hoped for. I appreciated his professionalism and his timeliness. I'm never late for anything, and I loved that Hide arrived early to get a sense of where he would be shooting our photos. I only booked him for an hour because I had a Chef coming to set up. Hide did not waste one minute. Our family had a wonderful time during our four-day event, and Hide's sense of humor greatly enhanced the time that he spent with us. You will not be disappointed if you hire this Thumbtack professional! I would be very happy to hire Hide again!
