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.

I came across Meeta on Thumbtack while searching for a photographer in the Bay Area for my baby shower. Being from Southern California, I have a few contacts there, but looking for vendors in the Bay Area was a bit challenging since I do not have many contacts here. Prior to coming across Meeta, I searched for many photographers online and on Yelp, but none caught my attention. I checked portfolios of different photographers, but none had the types of vibrant colors I like to see in photos. Also, during my wedding in Southern California, I went with someone whose photo quality was amazing, but since the photographer was new to Indian weddings/events, I feel like sometimes it was challenging for the photographer to capture important religious ceremonies. I did not want to make the same mistake this time around, so I was also looking for someone with experience shooting Indian events. After checking Meeta’s portfolio on her website, my husband and I both loved her work. Meeta was very quick with her responses and works with you to know what exactly you are looking for. After having a conversation with her, I felt very confident and booked her for my baby shower. On the day of the event, she arrived early to scout the location for our photo shoot. She made sure to ask me to point out close family members and friends to ensure she specifically captures some photos with them. After the event, we received edited photos within a week. Overall my husband and I are very happy with Meeta, her work, responsiveness and communication. We would definitely book her again for our future events.

I have to be honest, when I hired Michael through Thumbtack, I didn't read a single review of his. Not because he already had a 5 star rating, not because he has a gorgeous website with amazing and very artistic photography. From Michael's reply, combined with a honest profile face, and professional quotation email told me that here is a guy thats easy to work with, and probably a little fun as well. Well thats what we got during our event. Michael arrived slightly late, but he updated me via text message, came well dressed, and was a very approachable guy (important for big events). His shots - coming from a fellow photographer - he had good lighting considering the funky ambient lighting of Chinese restaurants, and this one with extremely high ceilings. Sharp with good color. Everything felt very prime lens, which I love. When he arrived, I verbally tagged the important people he should follow, which he did. So easy to work with. He was able to process our photos within the same weekend! We will definitely use him again.
