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.

Carlos was extremely easy to work with. High quality for reasonable price. I would love to work with him again in future events. P.S he is super familiar with Indian rituals and will take best photos of the event !

Stefan did an amazing job for my Birthday Party / Special Event. He went above and beyond to capture all of the key moments throughout the evening. His professionalism was always on point but completely fit in seamlessly with our guests of the occasion. I would highly recommend him to all others looking for a top notch photographer in the bay area. This photographer was by far the best and I'm so glad we were connected via Thumbtack!

I used Michael as our wedding photographer. He was absolutely wonderful and fun to work with! The pictures turned out fantastic. So pretty and exactly what I was looking for. We used Michael's services for a 4 hour tea ceremony day before the wedding, and for the entire wedding. He was very easy to work with. He used a good mixture between directing us and letting us be for photographs. The pictures came out very artistic, stylish, and classy. Absolutely love my pictures. Would highly recommend him and will definitely use his services again for other little events we might have down the road. :)

Cannot say enough about how Irina took such great care of us for a special event. We planned the work for my husbands party where friends and family separated for the last few years were coming back again. She had a great way of blending into our group but asserting herself to pull together the groups I had indicated I wanted to make sure we captured. I have hired other photographers who have done a fine job at various rates but Irina is a stand out in both planning, day of work, and overall quality of photos. She has a great eye to capture both our moments and also the beauty of the moment. If she has made your short list, do it. You will be more than pleased with the forever memories captured to perfection!
