Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.

What should you wear for a family photo?

A family photographer captures your family in a series of professionally edited portraits. You can be goofy, you can be formal, you can be exactly how you want to be. To that end, you can wear what makes you feel comfortable and confident — feeling good translates to looking good in photos. However, top family photographers do have some style suggestions that will make your family photos more visually cohesive:

  • Ask the photographer for color suggestions if you’re doing an outdoor photo shoot. Location and time of day can affect which shades will fade in the sunlight and what will stand out in a good way.
  • Stay away from a mix of stripes or plaids on multiple people — the effect is too busy.
  • Steer clear of tiny patterns, which blend together too much.
  • Avoid wearing matching outfits.
  • Do wear outfits that are complementary in color.
  • Choose color over black-and-white outfits.
  • Do choose a theme, such as pastels, fall colors or summer colors.
  • Opt for tonally similar colors.  
  • Go easy on makeup for outdoor photo shoots.

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.

Reviews for Alpharetta photographers
Thumbtack Customer
Frank did a terrific job photographing our company's executive team for our website photos. Everyone was thrilled with how well the photos came out. Only one person felt their photographs didn't come out so well (no fault of Frank's) and he generously and promptly photographed this person again and they were pleased. We'd recommend him and will use him again.

Matthew was amazing!! He came ahead of time for the photo shoot, scouted out our neighborhood and decided on the backdrops of photos before arriving at our home on time :-) He was very quick and efficient, friendly and professional. We enjoyed working with him. The photos are wonderful, the quality of work is very, very good. We look forward to working with Matthew again :-) Highly recommend Matthew for your photo shoot.

Skeptical re: finding random people online. But looking for African American photographer in my area...first time doing professional photos other than at Dept store. Thumbtack website popped up. Reviewed a few photographers- looked at their work and bio. A. S Photo Studio stood out... long history in his industry.. started out as a technician and honed his craft.. the sample photos were very nicely done. I reached out to 2 photographers and Mr Anderson responded promptly. He answered my questions... in one phone call I was booked and he suggested Piedmont Park. Day of photo shoot he was prompt, professional, patient , and personable. We definitely got our steps in!!😅. It was easy and fun.. Mr Anderson is kind, very down to earth, a man of integrity—so important..what he told me on the phone..... the photo shoot happened exactly like he said, $$ transaction simple, easy- I had my proofs later that evening and my finished digital photos the next Day🤗. It was a great experience.. I’ll certainly use him again.. he has a good eye. Soo many photos to choose from. Thank you Mr Anderson. God Bless!

Our family was extremely happy with the service of Tatacurly Photography. Tatiana interviewed me before the event to understand our preferences and to know our family and guests. Tatiana came on time for our daughter’s birthday party. She took a lot of pictures during the party. All photos are high quality and Tatiana was able to capture the best moments and best memories. I highly recommend Tatacurly Photography.

I did a boudoir photoshoot with Frank. Everything about my experience was absolutely exceptional; Frank was professional, friendly, and made sure to make the experience wonderful. There was a variety of sets, and I was able to change into all of the outfits I brought, so I had a lovely variety of photos. I had several quotes from thumbtack photographers, but Frank really stood out to me and I am so glad I had him photograph me! :)

He was horrible. Late for my appointment with no location in mind. We walked around Piedmont park for 1 hr until one of my guest selected a site. When I got the photos, they’re were not polished. Our faces were shiny and spotted like I took the photos with a disposable camera. Additionally, most shots had funny faces (people not looking at the camera or eyes closed). I would not recommend this photographer and wish I read a review like this before I wasted my money.
