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.

Mackenzie was such a pleasure to work with, from contact to completion. We scheduled an impromptu 30-minute couple photo session for our first trip to Savannah. She was super helpful in suggesting locations and very responsive to my many questions. We're in love with the photos and highly recommend working with her if you're looking for a talented photographer!

My husband and I really enjoyed working with Madisen on our maternity photo shoot in Savannah! We were there on our babymoon, and I let Madisen know what we were interested in doing. She really knows how to get fantastic backgrounds to highlight your photos and work with the surroundings. The results came back STUNNING! We are so impressed with the way photos came out, and we are super excited to share the photos with family. Really happy that I have these forever memories with my baby bump and the memories from our babymoon!!

I must say, Chris was SO helpful and a pleaser to work with. Long story: I knew I wanted to marry the woman of my dreams and have a very surprise proposal. I reached out to professional photographers for photos of my proposal in the Savannah area. My primary was not available and referred me to another photographer. I found out the day before that the referral was not up to par. I reached out to Chris via Thumbtack (the day before the proposal) and he responded right away. He was a great price for great photos. I thought it was too good to be true, but I was out of options. Chis far surpassed my expectations and the photos came out great! He was friendly and patient with all of my friends and family. Best of all we got great pictures and fast. Im very grateful that we booked him.

I needed a 'headshot' photo for my new job and Reid responded promptly to the posting. He found a wonderful location near my home to take the photos, paid attention to lighting and background and edited the results quickly and professionally. Friendly and easy to work with as well. A real pleasure.

Hannah was awesome! She was professional, warm, and directive while shooting my extended family of 9 people. Hannah is clearly experienced with the Savannah area and shared wonderful recommendations for photo ops. Communication was responsive and we received our photos promptly. So glad we went with Simple Moments!

Hannah was very responsive and helpful. She was able to be flexible with time so our shoot wasn’t interrupted by rain. We had a very comfortable photo session. If you like a more relaxed, candid photo, you will be pleased. She was very prompt with delivering exactly what she stated. Recommend!

We came to Savannah as a Thanksgiving family vacation and thought it would be a good time to take Holiday family photos. I was so glad to find Mackenzie, she was Excellent! We had great communication leading to our photography session and she was great (with our family of 9) in directing and getting great shots for our family session. Weather wasn't on our side that day but I know we got some memorable photos and I can't wait to see them! Thanks again!
