Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

Are there ways to be safe if I hire a photographer when social distancing?

If you decide to hire a photographer, see if the photographer can take photos outdoors or in a large space so all involved parties can maintain the recommended distance between themselves. You should also sanitize surfaces, avoid handshakes, don’t make any other physical contact and use digital platforms to complete payments. Speak with a local photographer in your area to put a strategy in place.

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.

Reviews for South Lake Tahoe couple photographers

After looking at a whole lot of photographers in the area, we chose Kelly for her affordable price, natural and bright light photos. Being a newly engaged couple, we were a little nervous and aren’t exactly the photogenic type. But with Kelly being friendly and knowledgeable on photography, she made the whole experience less nerve racking and enjoyable! We told her our interests in backgrounds, and she gave us a few different options. We enjoyed our hike and the views with an awesome sunset.

Armando was excellent to work with. He is incredibly responsive, professional, and his quality of work is phenomenal! My husband and I celebrated our one year wedding anniversary in South Lake Tahoe this past weekend and chose Armando to capture our time there. We were not familiar with the area, but Armando chose a gorgeous spot for our shoot, was very prompt in meeting with us, and delivered the beautifully edited photos within a couple of days. It really was such a pleasure working with him and now we have gorgeous photos to mark our 1 year anniversary. Highly recommend Armando as a professional photographer!

We had a couple's photoshoot at Hope valley, Lake Tahoe with a backdrop of fall aspen colors to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Tess was very accommodating in moving our initial date due to our desire for fall colors. She was regularly in touch before the photoshoot and checked on the fall color conditions. Tess was very flexible in the choice of location and also made us feel very comfortable during the photoshoot. She was very patient and had a great attention to detail while capturing the perfect lighting for every photo. The edited photos were not very satisfying however she was very quick to send unedited versions of the photos. Overall, a very satisfying experience and we would love to work with her again. We recommend her as you will get your money's worth!

Armando's photography skills are nothing short of amazing - like something out of a magazine. My now fiancé and I were visiting from out of town and throughout the entire planning process, he was extremely helpful. He knew the park like the back of his hands and knew the perfect spots to take pictures. The time and effort he put in to making our session everything we wanted was extremely noticeable. He was also able to capture our engagement while still showcasing the amazing scenery at Skylandia State Park. Armando was personable and made our experience very comfortable! He even kicked over a couple photos of the proposal a few hours after our session so we could share with our loved ones. He really makes sure his clients have a great experience. If you're in the area, we highly suggest hiring Armando for your photography needs. You won't be disappointed. Armando, thank you for sharing and capturing our special day with us. We are in love with our photos and cannot wait to see the rest, along with the video. -Nicolette and Travis
