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.

Brian was a great photographer for our company's two events. He was on time, professional, and went above and beyond to get great shots. He shared the photos with me in a timely manner. He was also very responsive and considerate. I would recommend using Brian to photograph any type of event.

Would definitely recommend anyone to use M&L Photography. They were affordable and Johnny on the spot. Quick responsiveness and sent photos literally a couple days after my wedding. This is the company you want to go with for photography for your event.

We hired Joe Chung Photography for a corporate event in Indy. Joe was very professional. His price was exactly was he said it was going to be (no hidden fees). The turnaround on photos was about a week (which is awesome) and the pictures turned out great!

Joe Chung Photography (JCP) photographed our recent event and family gathering. From the initial introduction via Thumbtack and engagement, Joe was prepared and professional. Everything moved very easily and communicating with Joe was simple and hassle free. Leading up to the day of the event JCP was able to work with us as our needs unexpectedly changed. We were presented with a few unfortunate, last minute, vendor changes. Last minute vendor changes can be crisis-worthy. Lucky for us, JCP was adept at managing crisis-worthy scenarios and was able to adjust and calmly eliminate the potential crisis from the loss of another vendor. JCP agreed to travel to additional locations and work with us as our itinerary changed slightly. The day of the event, Joe and his team went above and beyond to capture all of our moments. We were blown away by the effort JCP took. During a carriage ride they followed on foot to capture the family. Our nieces really felt as if they were VIP. It was delightful to see the look on their faces when JCP was there to take their photos along the way. JCP was not only professional and knowledgeable, but they were fun. They brought a lot of enjoyment to our event. We feel very fortunate to have found JCP on Thumbtack and would highly recommend JCP to anyone looking for photography services. Thank you Joe Chung Photography!

They were great to work with.... this was a fun corporate event and they helped capture the experience. They provided photos for our clients quickly and assisted with any technical questions we had. I would certainly work with them again and hope the opportunity presents itself, sooner, rather than later. Thank you guys for everything.

Joe and Austin were an absolute pleasure to work with on our project in Indy. I cannot thank them enough for their super speedy responses. We asked for several things that typical photographers would not turn around in a short period. And they did not flinch when we made these requests. I would hire them again in an instant if we have another event in Indy.

It was wonderful working with Peter to photograph my wedding. I highly recommend him for any event. Peter was very professional and responsive. He scheduled a phone conference to ensure we were aligned on timing and ensure he knew the shots we wanted. He scouted the area in advance for the best locations. He was punctual and friendly. Made us feel at ease and captured not just the moment but also the emotion.

Cory made me feel comfortable from the first communication we had. She was excited and pleased to work with us. She was proactive, but not pushy in establishing a timeline and order of events. She proved flexible and insightful on the day of the wedding, proving her motivation to make the most of her role as photographer. From the minute I met her I felt at ease, and knew she would guide us through the process with skill. She arrived early to get a feel for the venue and lighting. And Then got quickly to work planning critical shots, angles, and opportunities. During picture taking she kept an eye out for additional cute shot opportunities. During family group photos, She worked tirelessly to keep straying and bored family members on task and motivated for the next shot. I can't wait to see the finished product! Thanks Cory!

Dan helped with photography at my daughter, Saanvi's 1st first birthday party... and it was such a pleasant experience from the get go! To begin with, Dan asked the right questions on our first call to prep for his assignment, and based on details provided (100+ guests, some of whom may show up at different times; multiple mini-events to be held; requirement to have different aspects of the party captured including decoration, food etc.), Dan suggested we go with a photojournalistic method wherein he'd go about taking pictures randomly and, in the process, try to capture as many important moments as possible. And he did that, and more! In spite of there being a considerable crowd with multiple activities happening (simultaneously, at times), Dan managed to capture some beautiful, candid shots from the party. He also stayed back well beyond the committed time to take additional pictures when some of our friends and family insisted on having more taken! All this while taking lesser than the amount we agreed upon, as we both were short of change! And did I mention, it was a great bargain in the first place! I must also add that the lighting was pretty poor at the venue we chose for the birthday party - we honestly didn't see that coming as we had originally inspected the place during the day! However, Dan still managed to click some wonderful pictures for us, which is a testimony to his photography skills. Thank you, Dan, for helping capture some of the most memorable moments from the party in the most professional manner possible. We have all fallen in love with the pictures and look forward to working with you again! Cheers! :)
