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.

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!

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!

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.

Having Audra take my senior portraits was the best decision i've made this year. She is a very generous professional photographer. I was looking for someone who could smooth out and retouch my skin while still looking natural....and well, my acne/blemishes are not in the photos i'm sending out to family and friends :)

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!!!

Duyen was amazing! I could not be happier with how our family photos turned out. There was such a personal touch to this experience that I can’t say enough about. Her professionalism, attention to detail and expertise is second to none. If you are looking for photography that captures the expression and sentiment of each moment, you should definitely call her. I give her my highest recommendation.

Manny was excellent to work with. He responded to my request for a last minute photo session on Valentine's Day for a deadline the following week. We found a location that was easy for me but he had to drive a good distance. He was professional and I absolutely loved the outcome. Additionally, he had to edit the photos and turned everything around in a day. I will use Manny again!

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.

I hired Zay to complete a photoshoot for my husband's 50th birthday. It was a small family event in my home. Zay was extremely professional and had a great attitude which made the event fun. He ensure we were 100% satisfied with the photos prior to leaving my home, which gave me comfort on the final results. Zay is a awesome photographer and is now in my contact list for all future events. If you are reading this, look no further, he is the Pro for your project!

Tina was amazing!!! I would use her again any time and would recommend her to anyone! She was super flexible and willing to take any photo I requested. She is super quick to respond to calls and texts and if you have any special requests she's happy to accommodate! I had a super specific list of pictures written out as well as a number of photo ideas I had seen on Pinterest and she made them all happen. She also had many unique and creative ideas that I'd never seen or even thought of! I loved working with Tina and would recommend her to anyone looking to hire an amazing, professional, and experienced photographer.

We hired Jawan for our wedding and I tell you he was very professional with his work. He met with us at the venue before the wedding and on the day of he got some shots at the hotel we stayed and at the wedding venue. We are very satisfied with his work and will be using him for future photo and video shoots.
