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.

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 does a baby photography cost?

Portrait photography provides parents with lasting images of the first whirlwind months of a newborn’s life. The cost varies based on several factors, including the length and location of the session, the number of photos provided, and the amount of editing and retouching the photographer does. The national average cost for baby photos is $150-$200. Some baby photographers charge by the number of photos provided, typically ranging from an average of $299 for 20 high-resolution edited photos, to an average of $399 for 35 photos, to $499 for all of the images taken in a single session. Props and location affect the cost, too; an elaborate studio shoot with props and professional lighting may increase the cost to $600-$700 for 20-50 photos. Adding a second location or asking the photographer to travel can add $70-$250 to the cost of the session. Photographers may also charge extra fees for providing additional photos and DVDs, scheduling weekend sessions, and shooting siblings. Expect to pay at least a $50 deposit when you book a portrait photography session.

Where is the best place to take baby pictures?

Baby pictures are among the most popular types of portrait photography, and most newborn photographers are well versed in the best places to take baby pictures in their local areas. Some newborn photographers will come to the hospital to shoot the baby within a day or two of birth, while others have set up their studios to accommodate the needs of infants. Some parents prefer to have the newborn photographer come to their home or travel to a favorite park or other outdoor location. Like any portrait photography, the best place to take baby pictures is the place you like best and that will yield the types of photos you want of your baby, whether that’s posed and carefully lit studio portraits or spontaneous, casual photos at home. Work with a local newborn photographer to find a safe, calm location with great lighting and some privacy for your family.

I had a vision on doing a then and now photo shoot for my son who was born premature. I searched thumbtack and several photographer responded and I viewed each of their pages but something about Estrada Photographie caught my eye I loved how Lisa was able to capture the kids she had photographed. Any one with kids know they are constantly moving. She had patience and listened to my vision and I must say I am beyond impressed with how my sons photo turned out. I was also looking for affordability and she did everything I needed for an excellent price. My family and I are grateful for your services and look forward to our next photo shoot with you. Many referrals coming your way. I pray that God continues to bless your business.

Jacob is an amazing photographer. He arrived early to the site to pick out the best spots to photo. He made me feel totally at ease and did a great job guiding and coaching me through the shoot. The lighting and angles he chose were spot on! He honored the projected time and gave me the finished products the next day. His communication throughout the process was flawless and I will definitely work with him again!

We had such a great time doing our engagement shoot with Marcus and Ashley and the wedding was even better! They are so fun to work with, super professional and creative. They kept in constant contact with us and answered our many many questions before and after. The video and pictures were amazing quality, great poses and angles. They perfectly captured all the happiness and love in our relationship and at our wedding. We will definitely be requesting their services again whenever we need a photographer.

Hire Amina Touray Photgraphy NOW! Yes, like now. You will not regret it. My experience working with Amina in three words: Professional. Punctual. Wonderful. I inquired with Amina through Thumbtack for a photo session for my Real Estate career and website content. Amina stood out from the other professionals because she didn't ask me my email off the bat to send a contract (I deal with contracts all day- I was just looking for someone who genuinely cared for what I was looking for!) Instead, she listened and communicated with me in a respectable, professional manner. In my personal opinion, business is personal and connections are worth everything. Amina is a gem because she shows that she thinks the same throughout her work ethic. Amina arrived to my shoot prepared and ready to put my goals and visions to life. She introduced me to Moses, who was her assistant on set. I was so comfortable with them instantly because of how attentive and kind they are. I was nervous to see my proofs from the shoot afterwards because I was unsure if I looked ok, and Amina assured me they came out amazing and made herself available to me even as the night went on which I was so appreciative of. Last but not least, Amina's photography portfolio is extensive and her experience is impressive. I know that she can take any shoot to the next level with her incredible talent. I look forward to working with Amina on many future projects.
