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.

How much does it cost for a photographer for a wedding?

Finding the right wedding photographer can make a big difference for your ceremony. Nationally, the average wedding photographer’s price ranges from $800 to $1,000, but costs can be much higher in areas like Chicago, New York or Los Angeles where some couples spend $2,000 to $5,000 or more for the photographer they want. Factors that can affect your wedding photographer prices include the photographer’s reputation and experience. Heavy hitters can command top rates, especially during wedding-season weekends. Day of the week also affects your cost. You may get a $200 discount on wedding photographer prices if you get married on a Friday in November rather than a Saturday in June. Time onsite is also an important cost factor. Hiring a photographer to snap photos from the moment you wake up until after last call at the reception is going to cost more than five hours of pictures during the day. Multiple photographers, special lighting, and videography will also increase your costs. Ultimately you want to find someone who has a style you love and can provide the number of edited shots you want for a price you can handle. Learn more about hiring a wedding photographer.

Do you tip a photographer for family photos?

Tipping a photographer for family portraits is not standard etiquette. A great way to recognize a family photographer who goes above and beyond is to write them a glowing review. You probably found your photographer by reading online reviews, so paying it forward by letting everyone know how much you appreciate their work is a great gift. Write your review after they have delivered the final edited photos on time and you’ve confirmed that you’re happy with the terrific portraits they took.

What should you wear for a family photo?

A family photographer captures your family in a series of professionally edited portraits. You can be goofy, you can be formal, you can be exactly how you want to be. To that end, you can wear what makes you feel comfortable and confident — feeling good translates to looking good in photos. However, top family photographers do have some style suggestions that will make your family photos more visually cohesive:

  • Ask the photographer for color suggestions if you’re doing an outdoor photo shoot. Location and time of day can affect which shades will fade in the sunlight and what will stand out in a good way.
  • Stay away from a mix of stripes or plaids on multiple people — the effect is too busy.
  • Steer clear of tiny patterns, which blend together too much.
  • Avoid wearing matching outfits.
  • Do wear outfits that are complementary in color.
  • Choose color over black-and-white outfits.
  • Do choose a theme, such as pastels, fall colors or summer colors.
  • Opt for tonally similar colors.  
  • Go easy on makeup for outdoor photo shoots.

How much do photographers charge for family portraits?

Family portraits are a great way to mark the passage of time, create lifelong keepsakes and have gorgeous-looking photos for your annual holiday card. The national average cost for hiring family photographers ranges from $150 to $200. Pricing can range higher depending on where you live, length of the photo shoot, the number of edited photos you request, and the background and reputation of your family photographer. Before hiring, make sure you understand their fees up front. Ask how many finished images are included in the quoted price and whether you will receive all the photos taken (not just edited photos). Ask whether you’ll be able to download digital photos or if you’ll have to print them or purchase digital copies through the photographer. Here are some average examples of family photographer pricing:

  • $175 for a one-hour studio session in Kansas.
  • $200 for a one-hour studio or outdoor session in Georgia. Includes two outfit changes, access to an online gallery, and about 200 high-resolution, edited digital photo files on a DVD, with permission to print.
  • $400 for a one-hour outdoor session in Southern California. Includes 25-30 fully edited photos accessible online or via CD/DVD.
  • $425 or more for a one-hour outdoor or in-home session in Illinois. Includes more than 50 professionally edited images, online access and print release.

Alex was a perfect fit for us! He had everything we needed in a wedding photographer. One of the first attributes you'll realize after meeting Alex is his passion for what he does and it shows in his work. He was extremely professional and fun to work with. Easy going and responsive to all our questions. My now husband and I agreed that we didn't want lots of posed photos. We gave Alex the not so easy task of wanting mostly fun and artsy candid shots. He did an amazing job. We are so in love with all our images from the engagement shoot to our wedding day. I think the biggest compliment we can give Alex is all the astounding compliments and comments we received from our guests about him. I don't know how many times we heard that night "Your photographer is great!" "Your photographer is so nice!" "I met your photographer, Alex. He's so awesome!" Alex you were/are! Thank you so very much for everything.

Jordan did a wonderful job taking portraits of my girlfriend and I. He was clear with direction and was very quick to respond to any and all questions I had leading up to our meeting time. I would highly suggest his services to anyone who's interested in getting their photos professionally taken.

Professional, punctual, reliable! If these are important qualities in a photographer, then you have chosen the right girl! I am all about getting someone who can do an amazing job with a quick and efficient turn around time to receive the images! I am so happy with the images of my event, but am even happier with the rate of speed of which I received them!! Will definitely hire Natalia from Umbrella Shot again!

Stephanie shot our engagement pictures in Malibu and was an absolute pleasure to work with! It was our first time getting professional pictures taken and Stephanie did a great job making us feel comfortable in front of the camera. The pictures came out amazing and we can't wait to feature them on our Save-The-Dates and throughout our wedding! Stephanie is talented with a great eye for locations and poses. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to get some good photography taken.

I am so glad I worked with Daniel for my head shots. Firstly, I changed our tentative appointment a couple of times and he was very flexible and understanding with me. Secondly, I am 45 and I wanted to make sure I got head shots that reflected my age. Its easy to take pictures of young beautiful actors, I wanted someone who could do a good job with my look. I was a little nervous when I showed up, but he is very kind and professional. He weighed in with opinions when I needed suggestions on make up and wardrobe. He let me see the progress of the pictures as he was taking them. So if there was anything I didn't like, we could work to change it, in the moment. He also played music (and offered other selections if I wanted them) and gave feedback on the shots as we were shooting. Thirdly, he is an actor and a model himself so he understands the industry and what is asked of actors in their head shots and how important it is to show up to an audition looking like your picture. Lastly, he was just a really nice guy; easy to relax around and be myself so we could get the best shots. And I did. I love my head shots. They are the best I have had in years. I am so glad I went to Daniel and will absolutely be back when i need new shots. I would definitely recommend Daniel wholeheartedly for anyone looking for a new photographer.
