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.

Mike did a fantastic job at my sororities event! He arrived early to set up, and stayed throughout the entire event to capture every moment! His photographs look great and everyone was so pleased with how great of a photographer he is.

Dustin was fantastic to work with - punctual, professionally dressed and returned the photos after our event timely. We wanted a photographer for our event who could capture the ambiance while blending in. Dustin was the perfect fit. His equipment and talent exceeded our expectations. I would recommend Dustin for any event and will use him in the future.

Chelsea shot the photos for my son's first birthday party. She was very punctual on her timing. She arrived the event venue before we got there and she clicked picture of the venue from outside already. She clicked some very nice photos of my son. She stayed for the whole event even we hired her for only two hours of photography. The images she shared with us are very sharp and clear. Overall very happy that I found her on Thumbtack. She will be definitely be the photographer for my next event.

Dustin was amazing! We had several changes to our event due to weather, but he was very flexible and the photos exceeded my expectations. Our company will definitely hire him again at our future events!

The photos she took were beautifully done. She was great to work with and very professional. She came in and jumped right in getting photos taken. She was very friendly and personable. She worked great with the bride and groom. She was able to get the families together to take photos without any problems. She was terrific. I would highly recommend her to work any event.

Murat was absolutely amazing to work with. We booked him for our wedding, and we couldn’t be happier with the results. He was incredibly responsive, professional and friendly. Murat spent the better of four hours with us on our wedding night, capturing photos of our ceremony and after party. We received our photos less than two weeks from our event. His pricing was incredibly generous considering the time and effort he put into our photo session. We would definitely work with Murat again and strongly suggest you do too!

We booked Smith Photography with only one week advance notice. My family was celebrating the birth of our first grandchild. Our two sins were arriving from out of state. Susan and Vicky arrived promptly at my house with all the tools of their trade. They were very helpful, knowledgeable and professional. They had us posed in our backyard, inside the house and outside in the vicinity of our subdivision. We will definitely call on them for future events.

I reached an agreement with Marcus Roberts Photography to shoot our wedding (surprise wedding, so time is tight) Dec 31, 2019 from 6pm to midnight. This agreement was for Marcus the Main photographer and an additional photographer/videographer Marcus’s words ”the second person is mainly videography the whole night”. The original videographer cancelled, and I was NOT notified, instead Marcus brought his wife to assist. She is not a trained wedding videographer. Marcus also took up 30 minutes of our secret photo shoot to set up lighting (taking couple photos before everyone arrived we agreed 6pm to 730pm was couples photos). Instead of showing up early/communicating beforehand this was going to take time… Also, his lights were cable powered. Marcus did not bring 2 power extension cords. The time I am supposed to be getting ready, I am running around looking for another power cord. I made very clear beforehand that I wanted to recreate my grandparents wedding photo. I sent him examples before hand as well as had the photo on site. (Please refer to attached photo). Marcus’s wife even reminded him several times throughout the night that I wanted all my dress in the pictures (I had a chapel train). He said, “yeah yeah I got it”. Obviously as seen in attached photos he did not. Marcus’s wife video recorded before the ceremony and the ceremony. Not filming anything afterwards(at least no videos I received). The agreement was from 6pm to midnight. Marcus states his wife left around 10:40pm, but I have no video proof after the ceremony ended, 945pmish (the latest) to state that she was there later. He even agreed that she left early. I reasonably asked Marcus Roberts Photography for a $400 refund on the $500 for the second person. I said I understand you had to hire a babysitter, so I don’t mind assisting in that, at least the ceremony was recorded. But after that you breeched the contract and did not stay and record as requested. NYE count-down was missed, the cake cutting was missed. All parts I now cannot get back from our special day. I also stated I did not get the ONE photo I asked for. He offered to come back and reshoot that for us, I explained that a bride is not a simple put on a dress and voila. He messed up the pictures and needed to also pay for the hair and makeup redo $180 total. He refused saying he was going above and beyond just to come back and reshoot a couple of photos. In total I was asking $580 refund out of the $1,700 paid. I asked a reasonable amount of money back to recreate my couple photos as he messed up, and then for the second personal, as she was not a wedding trained professional. I was happy with his action photos of the party, but nothing else. I have no acceptable family portraits and no “formal” couple portrait I can print and place on my walls, I asked 3 times to make sure he got all the faces and we offered to move the flowers hanging, Marcus stated “no no I got were good”. He refused and offered $400 then $450, but I had to sign a refund contract. I said please send over the contract for review (please review attached). He asked that I am not allowed to express “disparage” orally or via written media. If I was to spread bad word of mouth or leave a bad review I was to pay him $2,500 in damages. Also, if a friend whom I confided in b/c I was upset with his services was to post a bad review, I would owe him damages of $2,500. I politely asked him to remove this, as the refund was for breach of contract and misrepresentation of services and abilities provided. He has refused to remove this portion of the contract, so I have refused to sign it. Instagram : marcrobertsphotography

We realized at the last minute that we needed a photographer to capture my mom’s 80th birthday. I found Kelsey MORNING OF and she responded within minutes. She is AMAZING! She was so professional, punctual and kind to everyone at the event. She instantly felt like part of the family! She was so easy to work with and flexible. We just got the photos back and they are INCREDIBLE! She was working with some tough conditions (a dark restaurant interior and lots of mirrors) but she just did such a phenomenal job capturing special moments and very large family shots. My mom just saw them and she said they “made her heart smile.” ♥️🥰 You can’t ask for more than that! If you have the opportunity to work with Kelsey, count yourself lucky! You won’t be disappointed and her rates are very reasonable. Thank you, Kelsey, for making my mom’s special day 💯 times more special since it will be remembered forever.
