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.

He photographed our 50 wedding anniversary party...reception and dinner. Nearly all of your others who quoted had only done weddings, but Paul had done anniversaries. He provided photos of everything..the venue, the cooks, the arrangements and all the group photos of family and each table and pretty much every person there. Very cooperative and through.

I would highly recommend Niche` Photography to anyone. Sanchez made it his priority to take photos that I was satisfied with, and he showed me every picture and asked for feedback throughout the whole session. They did an excellent job of shooting and editing photos that I can use for professional purposes, while still capturing my personality. Again, highly recommend!

Xavier is a great photographer. He is punctual and creative. He made sure my shoot was fun and made my vision come to life. He is also affordable. I love that he brings his laptop with him and lets you see the photos right away. His editing time is unmatched; I received my photos the next day. Overall he gets 5 stars.

I hired Anthony because I was looking for a relatively cheap photographer to shoot a wedding reception I was having in Atlanta following my wedding ceremony in Seattle. He was very attentive all through the planning process even though I live so far away and wasn't able to meet with him beforehand. He had lots of ideas and was willing and able to meet with my mom at the venue to choose locations for the photos. He also successfully sold me his DJ services, which worked perfectly for what I needed for my small event. He was a pleasure to work with from start to finish, always on time and always communicating his plans and progress with us. He sent a CD of unedited versions of all of our photos and a thumb drive of the photos we selected to have edited -- we appreciated having rights to all of the photos. Ultimately, we got some good photos of myself and my husband and of us with our family. We didn't get any shots of the best moments during our first dance, the turns and the dip at the end -- that was the only thing that really disappointed us. For the amount we spent on more than 4 hours of wedding photography we got some great photos to cherish along with positive memories.

Overall, this was my first time using this service. We had a last minute plan, and could not have hoped for a better outcome on a holiday. Our family photos, Easter egg hunting, and engagement photos were all absolutely phenomenal. We highly recommend Matthew.

Our other photographer cancelled with short notice. Mr. Ruby was excellent, quick to capture candid shots and very professional. His turnaround time for the photos was 1 day (not even a business day). Thank you so much for helping us remember this special event!

Great workmanship! We wish we had known about him earlier this year for our other events. His print on demand photos were A-1 quality. Everyone loved his professionalism and his friendly, out going personality. His patient and flexibility to adjust to each and every situation- crying children, etc., is commendable! Even Santa had nothing but good things to say about the photographer- you all must be under new management- photographer and bueatiful decorations. Oh, yeah! Price wise, you get more than your money's worth. We highly recommend this photographer 👌! We will definitely use him again!!!

Elizabeth did an incredible job in providing us beautiful outdoor family photos. There were 5 of us including a 2 and a 3 year old (who lose patience for sitting still and posing quite easily) and Elizabeth was able to capture an array of photos that will bring us sweet memories for years to come. Thank you so much for working with us in the midst of such a hectic day. The photos you delivered give absolutely no indication of the chaos that went on during the shoot ;-). An absolute professional.

Securing DV Photo & Video for my baby shower was the best decision! AnMarie was punctual, professional, and above-all a delightful addition to the days events. She made sure to shoot every detail of the baby shower: decor, greetings, people, gifts, food, candid and posed pictures. She even gave us a 15 minute courtesy before our booking time expired to ensure we got in all of the last minute pictures we wanted. I received an email with all of the photos the day after the shower. And, needless to say- the photos came out beautifully! Thank you AnMarie and DV Photo & Video. I am beyond appreciative of your service and will certainly use you in the future.
