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.

Grant did an excellent job at a birthday party for our 1 year old. He was on time, took excellent photos, and was very professional. We're definitely going to use him again! Highly recommend

Jami was terrific from start to finish, very professional, on time, and her photography skills are amazing-- she captured all the excitement and emotion of my wife's surprise birthday party. She is a joy to work with and I highly recommend her for any event.

If I could give Sasha 10 stars I would! I could not have had a better experience with her for my 40th Birthday Party. Not only is she professional and energetic but she is also an extremely talented photographer. Several of my 100+ guests had positive things to say about her during the party and the 900 pictures I received after the party were fantastic. BOOK HER FOR YOUR NEXT EVENT NOW!!!

We are absolutely thrilled with the way the photos turned out for our daughter’s birthday party! Jordan is a talented photographer and does magic with the editing! He responded to me the fastest, offered a competitive rate, showed ugave us 500 edited images and they are all of magazine quality, it was hard picking my favorites to post on social media which was a good problem to have :)

Sasha was absolutely amazing! So thankful that we had her for my son’s birthday party. She’s a baby whisperer and great at getting smiles out of toddlers. She took amazing photos, super friendly, thoughtful, captured all the shots we asked for and got the photos out to us so quickly. Would highly recommend and will use her services again in the future!

I found Joe in a hurry, as we decided last minute to throw a dol birthday party for my baby. And these parties are a big deal in my culture. After hiring him and receiving the pics, I was glad I went with my intuition in choosing him. Would highly recommend Joe for parties or events. Really admired his professionalism, laid back demeanor, and eye for details. I really liked that he seemed to be invisible yet when I got the photos, it was like how and when did he get these shots? I was really proud I found him, otherwise I would have been a mad woman jumping around trying to get decent photos of the party and would have ended up booking a photoshoot separately afterwards which would have cost just as much as the party.

Mel did an absolutely amazing job photographing my daughter's 1st birthday. It was a chaotic day of preparations and dealing with a very grumpy little birthday girl and I thought for sure there would be no photos of her looking happy or enjoying herself but Mel is a true magician. The photos he captured of our little girl with me and with my husband are our most treasured and favourite pictures. He arrived on time, set up quickly, worked diligently throughout the entire 3 hour party, I never had to give direction or anything he was practically invisible he just went around and snapped the most lovely and candid shots - you can feel what the atmosphere of the party was like through these photos. It was exactly what I wanted. I am passing out his cards to all my Mommy friends and I shall most definitely be hiring Mel for any and all my next events. Thanks Mel for giving me something I didn't have to stress about on my daughter's special day.

Mukaila was awesome! He took great photos of my sons first birthday party. He showed up on time and got along with all our guests. He took our direction as well as creative shots of his own. All our family and friends were thrilled to have wonderful memories captured. He also delivered the photos in record time considering there were hundreds of photos to edit. Communication was easy, price was affordable! Will definitely use him in the future and highly recommend his services to fam and friends! Thanks Mukaila!!!

Worked with Dino once again, this time for my son’s birthday party. He has such great energy!! Which makes the photo ops more fun! The pictures he captures are all so good, I have so many favorites! He really captured the memories that were made that day. I truly appreciate the attention to detail and the suggestions Dino gives to get the best photos. Was definitely lucky to book with him and will no doubt work with him for future occasions! Thank you again, Dino!!!

After having Dino photograph my daughter’s 1st birthday party, I wish he was the photographer for all of our previous events and celebrations!!! First off, he’s such a cool guy, sociable, yet always professional. I was looking for a photographer last minute and Dino was quick to respond. He even provided examples of his work which clearly showed how he captures the most memorable moments to the moments that might’ve passed you by if it weren’t for him capturing it. As soon as he arrived, he went to work. Dino made sure to take detailed photos of everything from the play area to the dessert table and everything in between. I especially liked the mix of candid and posed shots of guests. I received the photos in a timely manner and all the photos looked beautiful!!! I definitely recommend Dino to anyone who needs a photographer and will be reaching out for any future events and celebrations! Thank you Dino!
