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.

Reviews for Union City event photographers

Angelica is pro-photographer. She was on-time and responds quickly to queries. She covered our event and provided digital copies promptly. Photos are good quality and definitely look professional. It would have been great if all event photo library could have been provided of the event. Only 30 digital images were provided for 1 hour photoshoot and any extra image downloads are $5 per photo.

We had terrible experience with Martino. We hired Martino to photoshoot my uncle's birthday. Everything was good untill the event day, Martino took good photos. But right after the event, Martino became unresponsive, there was no clear eta to get our photos. We called him several times during 6-8 weeks after the event. Martino never picked up our calls. We received response from him few times via text message with partial set of photos. Every week we had to follow up with him to send us our photos. One day I called him from my friend's phone and he picked up the call immediately, when I asked the reason for not picking up my phone calls, he didn't have any meaningful explaination. We finally received all of our photos over 8 weeks painful period. Very unpleasant experience and not at all professional.
