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.

Reviews for Jacksonville professional photographers

It is my greatest pleasure to recommend Carolennys Studio for professional photography. Carol is a very professional photographer that takes time to listen. She pays an attention to detail and provides an excellent customer service. She is very open to new ideas and suggestions that you might have. I hired her for my maternity photography and I was very very satisfied with her work. I definitely recommend Carol for any type of photography.

David was professional right from the beginning. He was very easy to work with. He got one of our employees to take her picture which she has refused to have her photo on anything. She said David made her forget she was in front of a camera. He made her feel relaxed and it showed in her photos. I will definitely be retaining David for all our photo needs. We are already talking about a group photo for one of our departments.

Joe is THE consummate professional. What an excellent job. I needed a professional head shot and really wasn't not looking forward to it as I am not camera friendly myself. Joe made me feel relaxed and comfortable during the entire process and my photos turned out amazing. I accomplished three things I didn't think would happen together ever- my photos were done, he had me at ease during the entire process, and I actually liked my own photos. I couldn't recommend another professional more highly.
Patricia B.
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.

We were so pleased to hire Marc for our wedding. He was so gregarious, upbeat, and directed us into the best shots. He really got the wedding party to relax, laugh, and enjoy the moment, which resulted in absolutely amazing photos. He did such a fantastic job, with photos that captured such a special moment with family and friends. He went above and beyond and met us met us early at the park, far from our synagogue, where he took some of the most candid and special photos of the wedding party. The outside photos had such bright colors, great angles, and were performed with exceptional attention to detail. Marc definitely has a great eye for photos and for getting the perfect shot. We were delighted with the final photographs and we highly recommend him. He was so easy going, fun, and helpful. He really went the extra mile to take the best photos. Such a people person and a delight. He's a veteran and his professionalism was very much front and center. From one veteran to another I couldn't recommend a better photographer for your wedding. Every person that has seen our photos cannot believe the quality, clarity, and colors that he achieved.

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!
