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.

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.

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.

Do you tip a photographer for family photos?

Tipping a photographer for family portraits is not standard etiquette. A great way to recognize a family photographer who goes above and beyond is to write them a glowing review. You probably found your photographer by reading online reviews, so paying it forward by letting everyone know how much you appreciate their work is a great gift. Write your review after they have delivered the final edited photos on time and you’ve confirmed that you’re happy with the terrific portraits they took.

How much does a baby photography cost?

Portrait photography provides parents with lasting images of the first whirlwind months of a newborn’s life. The cost varies based on several factors, including the length and location of the session, the number of photos provided, and the amount of editing and retouching the photographer does. The national average cost for baby photos is $150-$200. Some baby photographers charge by the number of photos provided, typically ranging from an average of $299 for 20 high-resolution edited photos, to an average of $399 for 35 photos, to $499 for all of the images taken in a single session. Props and location affect the cost, too; an elaborate studio shoot with props and professional lighting may increase the cost to $600-$700 for 20-50 photos. Adding a second location or asking the photographer to travel can add $70-$250 to the cost of the session. Photographers may also charge extra fees for providing additional photos and DVDs, scheduling weekend sessions, and shooting siblings. Expect to pay at least a $50 deposit when you book a portrait photography session.

Where is the best place to take baby pictures?

Baby pictures are among the most popular types of portrait photography, and most newborn photographers are well versed in the best places to take baby pictures in their local areas. Some newborn photographers will come to the hospital to shoot the baby within a day or two of birth, while others have set up their studios to accommodate the needs of infants. Some parents prefer to have the newborn photographer come to their home or travel to a favorite park or other outdoor location. Like any portrait photography, the best place to take baby pictures is the place you like best and that will yield the types of photos you want of your baby, whether that’s posed and carefully lit studio portraits or spontaneous, casual photos at home. Work with a local newborn photographer to find a safe, calm location with great lighting and some privacy for your family.

When should you take newborn photos?

Few styles of portrait photography are as tricky as newborn photos — the unpredictable infant is always in charge! The best way to ensure a successful photo shoot is to work with a local newborn photographer within the first two weeks of the baby’s life. Some photographers even work with hospitals to offer newborn sessions within a day of the baby’s birth. But newborn photographers usually recommend scheduling a shoot during the baby’s first two weeks of life, while the baby is still sleepy and relatively cooperative, especially for posed or studio shots. During this time, babies are easier to swaddle in blankets and dress in hats or headbands, and, because they often nap or nurse, can be staged with various props or be cuddled by their parents. For casual photos, most newborn photographers recommend shooting within the first six weeks of a baby’s life. Lifestyle portrait photography is more flexible and doesn’t require the baby to cooperate with multiple poses or props.

We had a wonderful time working with Richard for our wedding and the photos are absolutely stunning! He was able to capture my list of required shots wonderfully as well as some great candid moments. The price was reasonable, he was fun and professional, even dealt with a last minute location change and my large family. The photo processing was quick - 3 days later I had ALL of my photos!! Thank you so much!!

Bryan was awesome in all respects. He responded to my request for a photographer within a few minutes on a Sunday evening. He was friendly and professional at the same time. He was willing to work in the rain. Bless you, Bryan. He photographed my sons senior pictures and he knew more about portrait requirements than I did. It was apparent he had done numerous

Liv was able to provide us with wide range of photos for our use. Family, couple, and baby pictures were all delivered to us within 3 days of the shoot. She also came to the photo site prepared with multiple vantage points, and was also able to give us some spontaneous candid shots. Liv is professional, organized, personable, and well prepared. I highly recommend her, and plan on using her services for future projects.

I was looking for some fun headshots that didn't give off a stuffy appearance. Kevin was great at suggesting areas to shoot in and being flexible. We met in the RiNo Art District and we had a ton of fun shooting in front of some fun murals. Kevin gave me suggestions on how to pose, let me be goofy with a few shots, took some very professional looking ones, and also let me try out a few poses I had in mind. He was always very easy going and easy to work with. I hope to book Kevin for my family photos and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a photographer. I am an event planner and hope to work with Kevin on some of my event photography!

I got to the shoot just in time and Mr. Fleming was already prepped and ready to go. The shooting experience itself was relaxed and he had a great way of drawing out the shots that would look the best. Great price for some professional shots and the turnaround was FAST. I'd be totally OK with working with this photographer again. Thanks Richard!

Riley was absolutely excellent!! He had to work with a large group of people (which included mostly children) in a confined and dimly lit space. The photos turned out beautifully and we couldn’t be more pleased! In addition to his prompt arrival and professionalism, Riley is just a very nice guy who loves what he does. He was a pleasure to work with and we will certainly use him again! You won’t be disappointed!!
