Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.

Are there ways to be safe if I hire a photographer when social distancing?

If you decide to hire a photographer, see if the photographer can take photos outdoors or in a large space so all involved parties can maintain the recommended distance between themselves. You should also sanitize surfaces, avoid handshakes, don’t make any other physical contact and use digital platforms to complete payments. Speak with a local photographer in your area to put a strategy in place.

Marsha was wonderful to work with. She was professional, enthusiastic and made the guests at my event feel comfortable in front of the camera. The photos are great and if I ever need another event photographer in Tampa I would absolutely hire her again!

Everything about my experience with Aziz was absolutely amazing! I was looking for a last minute wedding photographer to take photos of my husband and I after our small intimate ceremony. Aziz made himself to capture my special day and for a unbeatable price. During the shoot, he made us feel special and even more connected to one another. Less than a week later I had the most beautiful and special photos! The love and excitement of my special day is captured in each photo and the joy I felt that day comes back to me each time I look at my photos. I couldn’t have asked for a better photographer and outcome! I would certainly recommend Aziz for all your special events!

When my arranged photographer cancelled one day before the event, Bob agreed to come at very short notice. For that I am extremely grateful. I needed four generation photos at the beach (included all age groups from 2 weeks old to 93). He was very professional, on time, and efficient. He was able to quickly form rapport with every age group. He offered minimal suggestions for backgrounds, which would have been helpful. He also did not offer suggestions for improving the poses of group shots (which would have been helpful, especially when some people were not readily visible in large group photos), but he took several candid portraits which I liked. Overall, the photos were very good, although I was disappointed that basic editing was not included in the original price. He told me up front he did not have experience with infant photos, and it showed...these photos could have been better. Overall, the quality of the photos was sharp and photos were well-composed. He was flexible and amicable throughout each photo session. It appears from his portfolio, that wedding photos are his forte. I would use him again for vacation photos.

Earl's work was fantastic. He helped develop a plan for the day even though he was only with us for two hours. I should say he was only scheduled for about two hours but another vendor's delay meant Earl stuck it out. H went above and beyond as well as delivering the photos in just one week. I would highly recommend Earl for your need photography needs of any kind. Weddings, Graduations, Portraits, Business Events, or even a family gathering he is your man!

Absolutely amazing! I wish I could give more than 5 stars! Jane was not only very professional and hands on but she made me feel like she was just a friend. She blended right in with my bridesmaids and I, and made my special day even more special. She took all the ideas I had into consideration and made sure to capture all the moments I wanted and she came with her own ideas as well. I for sure hired the right photographer and will now use her again for any other event I have! Don’t hesitate in choosing her as your photographer if you want a fun, professional who takes amazing photos!

Kat FAR exceeded our expectations. She chose the most magical spot for our photos- we came from out of town with no references besides wanting “beach pictures”. She arrived on time, and didn’t want to leave until we were ready and thought we had enough pictures. She made the whole experience very fun and relaxing for us newbs. We had multiple shots of different angles and spots that only she saw with her photographer vision!! I wish we lived closer so she could document all of our life’s events!! Thank you Kat!!

Frederick was an absolute pleasure to work with at my last event! He covered a surprise "70th" birthday party I planned for my Mother this past August. He arrived on time, in fact early, and was completely professional, even politely declining to partake in offered food and refreshments so he could concentrate on capturing the most precious moments! Frederick perfectly captured my Mom's reaction (and surprise) as she unsuspectingly entered the hotel ballroom where her daughter, grandkids, brothers, sisters, nieces, nephews, and other friends/family were lying in wait! Frederick worked the party for three hours (at a fabulous price), and moved around stealthily, you hardly knew he was even there at times. He accommodated special requests for pictures & group shots, and even took some film (as well as other moving shots) at the party - this was a pleasant surprise and a definite added bonus - I'm so glad he did! He uploaded all of the best pictures/shots to include video (to an easy-to-access link) within a day or so, and even edited a very special tribute video for my Mom commemorating the entire and joyous gala of folks for this day! She teared as she watched it, reliving the events as they unfolded on her milestone birthday. Everyone was so ecstatic as I emailed the beautiful pictures (out) to the group of party attendees, and to those who could not make it - the professional photos made them feel as if they were there! I would hire Frederick again in a heartbeat, and highly recommend Frederick to anyone in need of a professional photographer who possesses super high-quality work and gives a very fair price to boot! You should hire Frederick for your next event without a second thought. He's a true jewel, and absolute wonderful find amongst the Thumbtack network of talented and skilled individuals!
