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.

Mukaila photographed my infant son's baptism. For an hour long ceremony, he took 170 truly wonderful photos. He got audience shots, close ups of the service, and at the end, specific group photos. Mukaila was very easy to work with, friendly, and super professional. He communicated with me several times before the event, showed up on time the day of the baptism, & I received the link to the photos just 3 days after the event; I thought it would take a week. I highly recommend Mukaila because I had a very positive experience.

Dino did an amazing job at capturing all of the best moments of my sister's 50th birthday party. I picked him based on the reviews he has on Thumbtack, and I'm so glad I did. He is very friendly and professional. All of the guests loved him. He got to the event early and stayed late. I would definitely recommend him to all my friends and family. I don't need to look for another photographer for future events because Dino is our guy from now on.

If you are looking for event photographer, don’t think twice. Dino is the one you are looking for. I did all the research, all you gotta do is just book him asap. Not just quality of his work, but also how he get along with 20 kids. He is extremely friendly and his work is piece of art. All of my guest loved the pictures.

TL-DR: Hired Tommy for an event; he shot very poor photos (attached) and then did not edit a single photo; a week later sent me link to unedited photos. When confronted, he said at best he can re-edit. Please do not make the same mistake I did in trusting Tommy with your memories. Here's the long version: Ever since I got the pictures from Tommy, I've been in shock. I had very low expectations for the pictures, and they were way below even that. Tommy caused me irreparable harm: I will never be able to have those memories captured again. I'm an artist and I know the value of independence and freedom an artist needs, so I gave Tommy space and did not even negotiate with him for the price; we paid Tommy $350 for a 3-hour event shoot and we feel cheated. Editing of the images: Tommy had 270 images in total (Raw Files) and 264 edited images. Absolutely no difference between the RAW and edited images. So he cheated me there. An example is below: Attached is the most important event of the night; First is Tommy's 'edited' image and the next one is the same image after I edited it on my cell phone for 2 minutes. Image Selection: The selection of images themselves is baffling, to say the least. Let me give you an example: (attached) This is another 'edited' image: Please tell me what this conveys: the kids, the Amazon box, the bar, the table? There are several other images where there are people walking by into each shot. Hiring Tommy was no different than having one of my friends walk around with his cell phone capturing Images.

Joe helped me & my family capture the last & most intimate moments a my brother’s funeral. Joe was professional, sympathetic and flexible. The location of the shoot was on a boat out to sea. As we cried, sang, prayed and heard a lesson, Joe & his co-anchor Sean, took tasteful & respectful photos. They also made a video with a drone too. We can now cherish this time again & again. Joe was also reliable & trustworthy with his communication via phone & texts. Making payments was easy too! Words can’t express how grateful I am for Joe & his talents. I’ll definitely work with him again, but on a happier event. Thank you Joe!!!! Your generosity & kindness will always be remembered & appreciated. See ya!
