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.

Doug photographed my small wedding ceremony at my parent's home recently. When I was looking for a photographer Doug mentioned that his clients all say he is easy to work with. I thought, "Yeah, I'm sure they all say that." Well, he sure was right! He strikes the perfect balance between being laid back and easy going yet professional, punctual (early in fact!), transparent and reliable. Although I hadn't met Doug in person prior to the event, my family members actually thought Doug and I knew each other -- they said things like "Oh, I thought you were friends, he fit in so easily!" (I should mention this was a small event with just 10 adults and 3 kids, so it's not that Doug was hidden in the crowd!) Doug even had some photos posted for us to see within just a few hours of the event and they look fantastic. I can't wait to see the rest! I highly recommend Douglas Fairbairn Photography, you won't be disappointed.

I loved working with Ann on making my husband's 50th birthday celebration a memorable event. She was on time, professional, easy/flexible and her captures were spot-on! Her sweet disposition and her patience with an enthusiastic crowd continuously making photo-op requests, won over me and my guests. She has beautifully captured moments we will treasure all our life. I would hire her in a heartbeat.

Daryl was awesome! I hosted my husband’s surprise 40th birthday, roaring 20’s theme party. I had spent a lot of time on decor and setting up. Daryl sent us teasers the very next day - wow! The night beautifully captured! Including little details of the decor. Cannot wait to get all the pictures! Daryl has a very friendly and fun personality, all our guests loved his approach and style of capturing moments. I will certainly look no further when I need a photographer for my next event! Thank you Daryl!
