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.

Excellent photographer.

I hired Square Biz Photography for my daughter's sweet 16 party. Damon was very professional and informative through the contract process and made every effort to match our vision for the party. His attention to detail for candid photos and personalized touches for the photo booth made the pictures received all the more special. I would definitely recommend and re-hire Square Biz Photography!

The photographer showed up on time and took some great pictures of my daughter's sweet 16 celebration. I would definitely use Atlanta Event Photos by Candidly again.

Diego was without a doubt the most professional photographer I have ever experienced. His sharp eye and keen instinct allowed him to perfectly move the lighting around for phenomenal photos. I will most assuredly go back to him for all my future endeavors in photography. Diego has an affordable price and schedules himself to meet his client’s needs. He has a charming personality and is very understanding and flexible with the people he works with, which directly results in a happier demeanor and more cheerful outlook that shows in the face of the people he takes photos of. I highly recommend him for anything from professional modeling portfolios to casual family photographs.

Linda was amazing to work with! Very professional and passionate about photography. I was extremely nervous, as I have never had a professional photo session, but she made me comfortable and confident. I look forward to another opportunity to work with her.

I had invited Frank to shoot my orchestra. Was very much delighted to see the photos where he has captured my different expressions. He is a great photographer who is very professional and responsive. I would certainly invite him to my other concerts as well.

Walt was the perfect Photgrapher. He was on time and professional. He had all of the supplies and equipment needed for the photo shoot. We sent him pictures of ideas we had and he incorporated every detail in each photo with a twist making it our own. Thank you for a wonderful first experience.

Steve is very talented and went to great lengths to make sure my business headshots were the best possible. He took dozens of digital photos to get the best results. I would not call anyone else but him after this experience. You won't find a better photographer for this type of work.

My fiance and I cant say enough positive things about our experience with Milona; we thoroughly enjoyed going to the park and having our engagement photos taken by her, she knew exactly what she was doing and the photos are beautiful! She had us laughing and smiling the whole time, posing different ways for just the right show, and the end product is something we cherish. When we thought about our favorite part of our Atlanta trip, it was our photo session with her. Thank you for such a wonderful experience!

I will recommend Jen to others. I hired her to take my maternity portraits when I was 7 months pregnant. She did an awesome job, a lot of friends who saw the photos sent me private messages saying the pictures are great too. I would like to hire her again to take photos of my baby girl.

Two thumbs up! Professional, prompt, personable, and produces perfect pictures! (the alliteration was not planned). Kaz photographed my daughter's 3rd birthday art themed party at our home with 11 toddlers, and he captured such great photos that will bring back the priceless memories that we cherish forever. All of the parents wanted his contact information as soon as they saw the pictures! We will definitely be booking him again and again!!!

Working with Angela was amazing from first contact onward. She was on time and ready to work even before we got settled. Although we were rushed for time, Angela remained the quintessential professional, always seeking out quality shots while treating our cast and crew with kindness. She even checked with the producers several times to make sure her photos were capturing their vision. We can't wait to see all of the photos and have no doubt we'll be working with Angela again soon.

Reja captured my lil girl’s 5th birthday party beautifully. She was very accomadating and travelled fromMarietta to Johns Creek so we really appreciated that. I wish we had taken the family pics in advance or during event as it felt rushed. Overall great value for good photography!

I am so happy that I chose Steve. He is such a nice person, and he made a very tired working mother of twins look "warm and confident" (which was my goal). I will definitely recommend him to everyone that I know and use him anytime that I need photos in the future.

This negative review isn't for his work product but for his customer service. I hired him to take photos at my daughter's first birthday party however her party was canceled due to inclement weather. I have requested a refund but I have not heard back or received a refund to date.

Charles is responsive, professional, punctual and very pleasant to work with. After searching for a week and speaking to several photographers he made the hiring process a very easy one, showing interest in my surprise photographer request right off the bat and after our phone call I felt confident in hiring him for the job. Overall my wife and I felt very comfortable during the photoshoot, though our chosen location included a short hike in an Atlanta summer lol. Charles even recommended places for us to dine at after and gave us a little Atlanta history. We’re very thankful for the beautiful pictures and memories he captured during the shoot. We would definitely hire him again!

I am so pleased with the work ZayRuss provided for us. Absolutely professional is the best words to describe him and his service. He responded quickly to any questions and was on time for our photo shoot. I will definitely refer people to him and will be using him for future projects. Also booking and paying for services was extremely easy.
