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.

Christopher was an absolute professional. He was responsive, courteous, and professional. He is well spoken and outgoing making him a perfect fit for covering corporate events. I would hire Christopher again. His photos were fantastic and we received them within days of the event.

Brandi photographed our rehearsal dinner and I’m sure we will use her for many more momentous occasions in the future. Not only is she kind and very responsive, but her work is exceptional! The lighting for our event was very tricky, but she had no problem capturing clear, beautiful images. She went Above and beyond to make sure that our photos were exactly what we wanted. She is an amazing talent and an absolute pleasure to work with! I highly recommend her for any of your photography needs!

Working with Stavan and his team for my proposal shoot turned out way better than I could have every imagined. Stavan was extremely responsive, we were in constant communication/planning leading up to the event, and a true pro during the actual photoshoot. He made me and my fiancee feel incredibly at ease during the shoot, and went well above and beyond with the amount of time dedicated and photos produced. Of course when it came down to the most important part... the photos... they turned out to be some of the most gorgeous pictures I've ever seen documented. I have been and will continue to refer Stavan to anyone that is need of a great photographer.

I hired Jeff to photographed our 50th wedding anniversary celebration of 63 people. He discussed the event several times in advance. He arrived 30 minutes before the posed fmaily pictures were takes to set identify scenic background at winery in Napa and set up proper lighting for the scene which was heavely backlit. He took posed pictures of 11 family members in various groupings, informal pictures at reception and during dinner and at Renewal of Weddding Vow ceremony. Picture were very good- sharp and good lighting. He composed 3 different albums for members of the family and was very quick in re-arranging the order of the pictures and making requested edit. . He was very professional to work with and guests enjoyed having him take their picture. He was very prompt ( within 3 days) in posting on his website a gallery of about 100 pictures of the event, which guests can review , download and order prints. He completed composing 3 different albums in 10 days. I was very pleased and recommend Jeff for event photography.

Andrea is not only an amazing photographer but a real professional all around. My schedule was a bit crazy and had a bit of a hiccup on the day of the event but she was so responsive and helpful to get as much done with us as possible. Very easy to work with and I felt confident with her direction the whole time. She also made us feel at ease throughout the whole session and she is super friendly. I am so happy with how everything turned out. Thanks, Andrea, for beautifully capturing that special day for us!
