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.

Eric Fleming is the consummate professional. He came to my house on Christmas Eve to photograph my brother’s 60th birthday party. He captured all of the salient moments and delivered great photos. He is my new photographer for all of my upcoming events.

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!

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.

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!!!

An AMAZING photographer and experience! She came early, stayed late, and was such a joy to be around! Our event was running really late, and she made sure to stay to capture our special day. All of our guests loved her! She delivered the photos quickly in an online gallery with a link we could send to all of our guests, and they were very beautiful. We will definitely be booking with Clao again! Highly recommend!

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.

I originally hired Vern & Christine for a last minute wedding I was hired for, they were so amazing that I hired them for a second wedding I had a few week later! They were on time, very professional and they even took the time to check out each venue before the events to see where the best photos could taken. I am elated that I was able to find them here on thumbtack. My clients were beyond happy with the results of their photos. I will definitely be hiring them for my next event!
