Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.

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.

Stavan was on much early in the venue and was ready with all the setup and done with the venue and theme photos by the time the event started. Captures photos really well with candid shoots as and when the new guests arrived and so covered everybody in the frame. He was responding so quickly and it was easy to work with . Got RAW and edited pictures on time. I recommend Stavan for any event photography .

Meeta is just amazing!! I hired her to capture my daughter's First Birthday and she did a wonderful job at capturing the entire event very beautifully. She is a lovely person and so punctual that she actually arrived at the venue earlier than the asked time so that she could photograph the decorations and get some portraits of my baby and us. She made sure all the guests are covered in the photos. Very easy to work with especially with kids!! I strongly recommend her to anyone thats looking for a professional event photographer. I will definitely hire her again for any events we have. Thank you Meeta for making our special day even more special with your beautiful photos.

Lawrence came on time and quickly started on his task,very professional. Took so many really good candid photo shots and also very patient in taking all the still group photographs requested by me. Totally worth the money spent. I will hire him again for my next event:)

Cheri was key to making my event a success. Her photos are excellent and she provided great advice on a photo booth. Without her suggestion we would not have set up such a great photo booth for our Oscar themed party. This was the reason I picked her over several other photographers. She’s proactive and super easy to work with. She showed up on time and blended with the crowd the entire night. She helped gather the group for a group shot! The photos turned out superb. In a survey after the party everyone commented on having Cheri was the best idea!

Brian was the photographer for my son's second birthday party. He was pleasant to work with and the pictures turned out beautifully. He was able to capture candid photos of the children engaged and captured every special moment. The party was only a a couple of hours but these pictures we have will last a lifetime. Thank you Brian for making our event very special and a memorable one. May God bless you for all the good work you provide.

It was great having a conversation regarding the photography project we had in mind. Piksfactory was very responsive and timely, clarified all my questions, provided alternatives and worked with me to find good solutions. They have great value for money and I would definitely recommend them to your upcoming event.

Wonderful! He was prompt - very - earlier than me at all events, needs. He was attentive, asked good questions, absorbed all I said and requested and responded - fast. He got me what I needed, AND THEN SOME, during the day, in real time at the event. Gave us great photos and lots of options to choose from - but also helped select best so I didn't have to when I was in a rush. He wasn't intrusive, but got the job done. Oh, and he's funny! I had a good time working with him, and immediately felt he was part of the team. Would hire him again in a heart beat and hope to work with him in the future. THREE thumbs up.
