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.

Karolina is amazing! Her work is always beautiful and she is so easy to work with and super friendly. She has already photographed 4 events for me so far and every single time we were blown away with the results. Whenever we have a special event, she will always be my number one choice. :)

I am a huge fan of Max Cozzi's photography. He has a way of capturing a moment, people, an environment in a really beautiful way. He was able to capture all aspects of my event with very little direction. Max was on time, curteous, and worked within my budget so that my company event could be archived by his special talent. There was very quick turn around from capturing the event to producing the final shots. And I was very pleased with the work he did for my evebt. I highly recommend using Max for all types of events. You will not be disappointed.

Not professional behavior Though he responded immediately when I was looking for a photographer initially on the app. He took on the project but when it was closer to the event date, he was unresponsive and rude with one more responses when asking about details or arrivals times. I was afraid he was not going to show up because he didn’t give me a confirmation. He did finally show up to my event, late, snd then he forgot key camera pieces like batteries. He decided he would have to go home and come back .. an hour turn around. At this point the party would have been half way done. He was not apologetic or anything. I feel like he didn’t want to work my event and didn’t care about being late I wish he would have told be sooner of his disinterest .. because this left me without a photographer for my party I do not recommend him at all, would give 0 stars in possible
