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.

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.

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.

I hired Elena for my wedding. She's a sweet and fun photographer. Elena was able to work all of the photos we needed due to short amount of time. My event was for 4 hours and ceremony started hour late. She was able get me and my husband out for photos when nothing is going on. Got all the family photos done and pics with the guests. If anyone ask for recommendations I'll totally recommend her for weddings.

Eric by far had some of the best work i've seen in a very long time. He's definitely a professional with incredible talent. I hired Eric to photograph a club event, as I'm a DJ and needed to build my portfolio. Unfortunately, things didn't work out and Eric didn't get to shoot the event due to a misunderstanding between the venue and promoter, but I'll definitely be utilizing Eric's services again in the future.

I was in a jam to find a photographer for our annual toy drive. Rodney responded to my request within minutes and was able to arrive to our event that afternoon. Beautiful pictures of a very special event. Rodney- you captured every moment we'd hoped you'd be able to get. We all have tears in our eyes. Thank you so much for your work & I can't wait to work with you again!
