Your burning questions: answered

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.

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.

We hired J. Concepts Productions to photograph and document our baby shower and were very pleased with the high level of professionalism and service. The photos were sharp and they captured the spirit of the event. The Vimeo photo montage was also fantastic.

Jami was a pleasure to work with, and provided us with a great set of photos from our graduate student welcome event. She was very responsive and flexible from the start, working with us to fit our needs. On the day of the event, Jami arrived early and was ready to go. Afterwards, she worked quickly to send us the final product. We are happy to have worked with her, and would recommend her services to all looking for an event photographer!

We hired Desert Rose for one photographer for a charity event originally. But, after talking to Will, who is lovely, we decided to hire them for two photographers and their awesome photobooth! They came to our event and set everything up with no fuss. People loved the photobooth, which printed out right then and there and also could text or email photos. It was a real hit! Will and his staff are super nice and very professional and we will never need Thumbtack to find an LA area photographer again as we will be using Desert Rose ;)

Jami did a fantastic job capturing exactly what I requested from our event, and more! She was great at capturing the ambiance of our event, as well as organically taking posed photos with our guests. Additionally, as soon as she picked up on the fact that we are a mobile marketing technology company, she made sure to include a ton of great shots of people using their mobile phones and devices. And, our event photos were delivered to us within a few days!

Ivan Hundric was an amazing photographer for my event! He made my guest feel comfortable and glamorous. He was ready with his equipment at my location and on time. Very nice and pleasant guy who was focused in doing the task. Everything I asked he gave me no problems which made me event go that much smoother. I really appreciate your time and dedication Ivan! And after the event he sent all the pictures in perfect quality in a timely manner. Ivan will be the only photographer I go to for any events or special occasions I have in the future.

I was looking for a photographer less than 24 hours before an event, and Richard jumped on it. He was on time, very personable and friendly with the guests, took very nice shots, and delivered the photos extremely quickly. Would definitely use him again.
