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.

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.

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.

We are so glad we hired Jeff! The photos he took for our fundraiser are exactly what we were looking for, and are gorgeous. We were able to share them on social media, email blasts, and with our donors. Jeff was incredibly professional throughout the entire process, and sent an edited gallery less than 12 hours after the event! I highly recommend Jeff for your event photography needs - we plan to use his services for future event when possible!

It was so lovely working with Juhie! I was looking for a photographer pretty last minute for my mehendi event and I was lucky enough that she happened to be available. Juhie was punctual, professional, and just easy to work with. The photos she took were high quality and came out great! She made the process seamless and easy for me, which I appreciated. I hope to use Juhie in the future for all of my events.

Meeta did an absolutely incredible job at our organization's Gala! She responded within a few hours to all emails, and she arrived early to our venue. She took a broad range of lovely photos including candid scenes, portraits, and images of the venue's garden that captured all of the joy and warmth from our event. She got us the digital photo album extremely promptly, and each photo is both high resolution and easy to download. I cannot recommend her work enough!

Sly was an absolute pleasure to work with. He photographed my son's 2nd birthday at a park. It was no easy task because our guests were spread out between the park tables and the playground area, but he managed to capture so many beautiful moments without any trouble. He showed up early, stayed late, and exceeded our expectations with his photos. I will definitely work with him again during our next event.

Ryan was awesome to work with! From my initial outreach, he was extremely responsive and very collaborative throughout the planning process. Ryan is super personable and really connected with the over 100 people at our party. He seemed to be always there snapping candid and staged shots, but not intrusive. Ryan handed us an SD drive at the end of the event with the all of the photos so it is just easy and hassle-free. So many of the photos turned out great birthday girl is having a hard time deciding which ones she wants for the album. I'd highly recommend working with Ryan!!
