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.

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.

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.

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!

We had Jeff to cover our 10th Anniversary party. From the onset, Jeff was very quick and professional in all his responses. He shared a few samples from his previous projects, which were very impressive. On the day of the event Jeff came on time, asked the right questions about the our guests and the flow of the party. He was in a great mood and showed a lot of enthusiasm towards all the craziness that was going in our party. Our guests were very happy to pose for Jeff. We received the photos before the expected time. And boy, did they turn out amazing!! Jeff captured all moments, candid or posed with amazing quality. We would cherish these pictures as a superb reminisce for our party. I would highly recommend Jeff for your next event will make sure we get him to cover all our events going forward.

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. :)
