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.

Livingson was a pleasure to work with, he was very responsive, flexible and timely throughout all of our interactions. He made us feel comfortable and worked well with our young children and we will definitely be using him for any future events or photography needs.

Angelica was great to work with! She captured all of the meaningful shots we needed at our event. She is fast to respond to questions, requests, and was sure we were satisfied with the quality of her work. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer.

NO WORDS CAN DESCRIBE THIS GUY.... I am the pickiest of picky. I do so many different events, I know, and understand what I want... with NOT EVEN a phone call.. Stavan got it!! He was prompt, he was elegant. He was communicative. No one even knew he was there. He did all of this with 4 text message from me, running around crazy as we had several issues the day of graduation. So many of my guests commented on him, and his professionalism. I was SO please with the ease of this.... THEN.... I got the photos. WOW.... WOW.... WOW... I don't review, I don't have time... I have sent this Gentleman's number to 11 people already, I got the photos an hour ago. I will make it my personal mission to make sure he is booked so many times in the future. He, his work, his attitude is simply priceless.... Couldn't be happier with any of it. He is worth every single penny... Thanks Stavan, you are amazing!!
