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.

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.

Because of COVID-19 David was able to bring his studio to my house and do a photo shoot for me and my wife graduation pictures. David was professional, on time, and took some unbelievable photos. David took the time to edit the photos to me and my wife's satisfaction, and they came out more beautiful than I expected. I highly recommend this photographer for all occasions. Bailey RN,BSN, MSN.

Steven was a pleasure to work with. He was punctual, professional, and helped to make our engagement photos memorable. He captured the happiness in the moment, had nice suggestions for a variety of shots, and provided all photos he had taken in edited form the next day. I would recommend Steven to colleagues or friends for their future photography needs.

Brenda was professional, friendly, and easy to work with. She was very responsive when I reached out to her before and after our photo session. She showed up early and ready to take beautiful photos of our special day. I am very happy with the final product, from the photos’ lighting, angles, clarity, and creativeness. She goes out of her way to be sure that her photos are on par with her high standards of quality. I would definitely recommend her for any special occasion.

Our family photo shoot was beyond our expectations. Seeing that we were on holiday, we wanted the photos taken on a specific day & to have the photos developed quickly; we were able to have them in 24 hours, for a very reasonable amount. Colette was available to guide us before, during and after our photo session. The professionalism and passion that Colette has for her work, stands out greatly. We loved the experience so much that we chose to have a second photo shoot. We've developed a friendship that we would like to keep for our next visit to Florida or if ever Colette visits Canada.

Best photographer by far! Spent hours upon hours for my daughter's sweet 16 pictures, had awesome ideas and traveled to our chosen location. He was professional, patient and creative. He appeared to really enjoy his work and never rushed through 7 clothing changes. "Climbed" through marshes and trees to get the "best shot". So good and reasonable that my daughter wants to fly him wherever she is for her future wedding if hes still photographing...

Elliot was immediately receptive to my post. After viewing his website and discussing the family photo shoot that I was interested in booking we agreed on a day and time. Elliot was lovely to work with and very professional. He chose an interesting site to begin the shoot and spent time with us to get each shot right. We had a wonderful time and look forward to working with him again. He does quality photography for all occasions. I recommend him highly !!!!

We found Carol as a last minute decision to hire a photographer for my mother's 80th birthday. I am so glad we did! The pictures are excellent and are being enjoyed by all - especially Mom who has a beautiful record of such a milestone event. Carol was so professional, prompt and interacted wonderfully with all the guests. You can tell by the photos the guests felt comfortable and relaxed and that Carol fit right in with the crowd! My thanks to her for her work! We will definitely use her again.
