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.

We used their services for couples photography for wedding and after wedding. The photographer was ahead of time and ready to go. Had a great experience shooting for various range of photography and the photographer provided valuable insights into lightning, pose, background and other aspects of great outdoor photography. We really enjoyed it. The photos turned out amazing! Very good pricing for the valuable service provided as well. Great quality photos!

Josh was a perfect fit for our engagement photos. My fiance and I are a young couple, and it was the first time that either of us had been professionally photographed. However, Josh made sure that we were comfortable and able to be ourselves during the shoot. I had wanted the engagement photos to capture the laughter and happiness that I feel in my relationship, and Josh delivered exactly what I wanted. If you're looking for a photographer to capture those candid, unguarded moments between you and your spouse, Josh is the man to book! The quality of the photos that he took was incredible and he did so well to manipulate the lighting and scenery to take so many amazing pictures. We took our photos on a Thursday evening and by Friday night, Josh was able to turn around and show us a gallery of proofs. Josh is so talented at what he does and is an amazing, down to earth guy, which made taking these photos even more fun. I'm so happy that we chose him as our photographer.

Nandy is the first professional I have hired for a service using Thumbtack, and the entire experience has been nothing short of excellent. For one, Nandy comes highly recommended based on the reviews here, and once I did initiate conversation, I realized he is very quick to respond back. From the very beginning, Nandy was very generous with his time; he actually met up with me in advance to plan and discuss lighting. In respect to photography, Nandy is one talented fellow. The photos he took were amazing. Nandy is creative and had many ideas to share when he was taking the photos. Nandy arrived early, and he was ready to go right away. The turnaround time to deliver the edited photos was within a couple of days. My significant other reached out requesting for additional photos, and within a day, Nandy provided additional edited photos. Overall, Nandy made the experience very memorable, and without a doubt, for all my future photography needs, I know who I will need to contact. Thanks a lot, Nandy!

Super responsive, flexible, and friendly, and made the entire experience perfect for what we wanted. Really appreciate being able to get someone of Elliott's quality on such short notice. Seemed genuinely interested in wanting our day to be very special and photographing us as a couple. Went above and beyond in arriving early to scope out the location and making his presence seamless in the short event.

We had an absolutely wonderful time working with Alex! She photographed our wedding ceremony and then a couple's shoot around the Dupont Circle neighborhood. Alex had great ideas for setting and the pictures turned out absolutely gorgeous. I could not ask for better souvenirs of our wedding day. I think she went above and beyond and really helped make our day extra special. A real joy to work with, thank you!

Mark and I worked out the details in just minutes via text and email. Mark confirmed the date, time, location a couple of days in advance. He arrived on time to our event appropriately dressed with a great attitude and a very pleasant demeanor. He interacted well and often with our guests to obtain good photos for our memories. I haven't seen the proofs yet but I fully expect to see that Mark got some good shots.

Alfonso was great to work with. We booked him on short notice for our wedding shower, and he did a great job. He got candid shots of all of our guests and captured all of the important parts of the event. We also appreciated that he took some time to pull us out to take some shots of us as a couple. Also, he quickly delivered photos before the promised delivery date. Overall, he was responsive, friendly, and professional.

Over the years, my wife and I have had the fortune to travel to London, New York, Washington DC, Paris with upcoming trips to Italy and Rome; I can say without a doubt the most creative photographer across our trips have been Joshua Fernandez. His sense of understanding us as a couple, scouting and suggesting new places with an eye for what our desires are coupled with his vision is for us (and our shoot) was remarkable. Josh, like myself, is an adventurer and as we ventured into the Library of Congress as it broached its last 45 minutes (where being beautiful is not easy), Josh not only was able to stick with us, but adventure into getting us into the building (there seemed to be a convention with armed officers or agents) and allowing us to capture the most beautiful parts of this scene. It goes without saying Josh captured the best pictures we could have ever asked for and I believe, given the opportunity we would fly him to any place we would travel. Thank you Joshua for your amazing work, eye and creativity. We could not appreciate you enough!
