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.

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.

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.

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.

Incredible. Tony's work was professional, artistic, and overall beautiful. My company hired him for event photography and we could not be more happy with the outcome. Truly a talented young man and we will definitely work with him again, as should everyone else.

Sharie shot our wedding and reception photos in October 2019, and we couldn't have been more pleased with the experience. From the initial interaction, she was pleasant, responsive and professional. On the days of our events, she was punctual, friendly, and had an extremely positive impact on the whole experience. The quality of the shots were great, and her post-production work was skillful and extensive. We would highly recommend for any event!

Christian is a really nice guy and I wish him well. He's just starting out as a photographer as he's currently a college student and looking to turn his hobby into a career. I hired Christian to come to my grandfather's 99th birthday party to shoot some family portraits and capture the event. He was eager to help and his portfolio shots online looked pretty good. I gave him a shot list so that he knew what kind of shots we were looking to get from the event. Unfortunately, the family portraits were shot in the very harshest sun with faces in direct sunlight. We asked him several time if the pictures would be ok because we were in that lighting and said it would be fine. We would have been happy to move to a shaded area. All of the family portraits turned out grainy, low res, and washed out by the sun with everyone squinting. The shots did not look professional in any way. We also asked that he do his best to capture my grandfather on his big day. Aside from some distant, low res images of him blowing out his candles and opening gifts, there were no additional pictures taken of my grandfather at the event. I was heartbroken that we missed an opportunity to capture this beautiful day with my grandfather. I should have paid more for someone with more experience. Christian didn't agree with my opinion about the shots but was understanding about my disappointment and agreed to give me half of my money back. Perhaps it makes sense to take a chance on someone with little experience when you have the luxury of reshooting if the pictures don't meet expectations, but I can't recreate that day and am super bummed with the results.
