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.

Amber photographed a corporate event party for us at a bar. Amber was very easy to work and communicate with. I received the pictures just four days after the event. Would use her for future events.

I highly recommend Eston Photography! Mike is professional and hard working and an amazing photographer. We needed an event photographer for our small non-profit's Gala fundraiser on a very small budget. Mike was fairly priced, he showed up early and was an incredible photographer throughout the entire event. We are thrilled with the final product: beautifully edited photos that we received less than 2 days after the event! Such a fast turn around and an amazing product. I'm looking forward to hiring Mike again for future projects, and I highly recommend you do the same!

Amber was great! She was on time and engaged with the event. We had a rehersal dinner on March 11th and when I met Amber it was as though I knew her. When we received the pictures I was thoroughly amazed. She recreated the event in pictures picking up the "spirit" of the event. I would highly recommend Amber for your photography needs. We will be visiting New Orleans frequently and I plan on utilizing Amber Photography again!!!!

We hired William Smith for a corporate event where we needed photos of the attendees and a video of the awards presentation. William was very professional and his work was very good. We will definitely use P&M Photography again.

Josh was very professional and arrived in plenty of time to adequately set up for our event. He provided the pictures quickly and they were excellent; both candids and professional headshots. I would definitely recommend him to others looking for a great event photographer.

The photographer (Mike Trummel) is an awesome event photographer! He arrived early and was very professional. Mike took beautiful pictures, which were edited and sent to me in less than 24 hours. We look forward to working with him again.

I had an excellent experience with the professional services provided by April of April Renae Photography. She arrived early and was extremely professional throughout the entire event. She was very attentive and gracious to our guests. I am very pleased with the quality of the photos she's taken. Prior to the event, her responsiveness was timely and precise, addressing every question and concerns I had. I highly recommend her professional services and would not hesitate contacting her again in the future.

It was a pleasure working with Hope. Her responsiveness and professionalism made me comfortable having her photograph our event. Having her capture our parade on Bourbon allowed us all to be in the moment and not worry about capturing it. I would highly recommend Hope for any future event you have coming up.

Amber was great to work with; she was professional, prompt and outgoing. We hired her to photograph a corporate event last week on the Natchez steamboat in New Orleans, which included a lot of moving parts: A Second Line parade, live band, gaming tables, etc. We are looking forward to receiving our photos!

We hired Gibson Photography for our baby's weaning (feeding) ceremony for 2 days. He was very professional and patient even though the event was something culturally different for him. We are very satisfied. Highly recommended.

Mr. John had the photos ready in one week as promised. He was professional. He was punctual when we totally were not. (We were like 30 mins late. Our entire day was a mess, as we had lots to do before our event.) He was patient. He also threw in a few more photos than expected.

Mike showed up right on time to photograph our daughter's first birthday party. He was extremely professional, friendly, and polite. He worked very hard the entire time he was with us to capture the best aspects of the event. His photos were quickly edited and returned to us. The pictures demonstrated our photographer's creativity and experience. We would definitely have him back to help us memorialize another important event. Not only did the final product meet and exceed our expectations, but we felt as though we obtained a great value-based service, as Mike agreed to stay longer when requested, although we did not have to extend the engagement. And he even helped edit some markings out of the photos, which greatly increased our satisfaction with the images.

We hired Ahmed to photograph my dad's party at the end of July and are very excited about working with him. His personality is fantastic and he seems quite professional I will go back on and rate him further after the event.

Amazing photographer!!! I highly recommend Andrew! I love in California and was married in New Orleans and found Andrew here on Thumbtack. Discussing our event with him before hand I knew we made the right decision. Letting him at the wedding was a delight. He is very nice and professional. Just received the photos and they are incredible! Thank you for everything Andrew.

This was John's first Vietnamese event and it's a very long and intense process. Mr John was very professional and maneuvered with ease throughout the entire process. He met all my expectations and made sure he took photos even when I forgot about certain ones that needed pictures. He was perfect I would definitely recommend him to everyone searching for an amazing photographer!

I used Paris to photograph my sister's bachelorette party around NOLA. She was amazing! She was clear and punctual in all of our communication prior to, during and after our booking. She was able to capture some great action shots during our pole dancing class and subsequent dinner and evening out. Paris was personable and profession and I would highly recommend her for your next event. Thanks for photographing some amazing memories for us!

I booked Johan to shoot something that was very important to me and to say he delivered would be an understatement! He was amazing! He was kind, professional, efficient and creative! Hands down he was by far the best photographer I have ever worked with. The pictures were absolutely gorgeous with no retouching needed. We do not live in the area so we came from out of state for our event and I could honestly say if I ever have another event that I hold dear I would pay for him to come to me. He is worth every dollar. I highly recommend him.

Kimberly was amazing!!!! Her skills are impeccable and she goes the extra mile to ensure she gets all the best moments of your event. Kimberly did my wedding on October 29. My wife and I picked her upon her personality over the phone, she was so excited for us and it was genuine. Also after looking at her previous work it showed she was great at photographing. Kimberly doesn’t know it yet but she will be our life long photographer. Thank Kim for your amazing work and your amazing spirit we are overly thrilled we picked you.

It's a just over a month since my partner and I got married. The one investment we keep coming back to is our wedding photos. My wife and I could not have asked for a better photographer! Angela was beyond professional. She was helpful with all the questions we had about timing and what made the most sense for the timeline of our event. She is humorous and helped make the day less stressful. For the day of our wedding, she captured all of the pictures for which we were hoping. Angela was also super chill and accommodating to our friends that had a list of shots they were hoping for as well. We are still blown away with the quality of her work. We will truly cherish them for a long time to come.

Michael was amazing and did an awesome job capturing the vow renewal at our family home in New Orleans! The pictures are stunning! He was able to capture every moment and did so without being obtrusive. Our guests loved him and so did my father. I can’t wait for everyone to see the pictures. He was very responsive, punctual and his prices are great! I highly recommend him for anyone who needs a photographer to capture any event in their lives! Thank you again for a job well done!

Kimberly was wonderful to work with! She was very kind and sweet through the entire process of my husband and I's Valentine's Day elopement. The day of the event was pretty stressful at times as there were traffic delays due to parades in New Orleans and construction in several areas, which put us behind schedule a little. However, Kimberly was ready with encouraging words and willing to be flexible to make suggestions about other alternative locations that could work should our original site not be available. Looking back on the experience, the ONLY complaint I would have is that Kimberly tends to be very "posey" with her photography, which I'm sure lots of couples and individuals LOVE since many people are awkward taking pictures and most brides want specific shots and poses captured for their wedding. However, my husband and I aren't really a fan of all the posing for specific shots and got annoyed pretty quickly after being physically positioned like mannequins for several shots. haha, it wasn't terrible, but like I said, it's just not our thing. We're definitely more of the "candid/real-life photography" fans, so we were VERY excited to see that most of our final product photos were beautifully captured in those adorable "in the moment" moments of our intimate elopement. Overall, we were extremely pleased with our interactions with her and her provision of photography services. We were very happy to have hired her would recommend her in a heartbeat! :)

As a wedding gift, I hired Genna to take pictures during part of my best friend's bachelorette party. Given the nature of the event, I was hoping for someone who would allow all the guests feel comfortable and give them a chance to be in the moment instead of feeling like the had to document it themselves. It was a total hit! Genna was so accommodating of our large, rambunctious group, and taking the group shots was a blast! Moreover- the pictures came out beautifully! The bride and I both literally cried when we saw them. The photos are a great momento, and Genna made it all happen. I can't recommend her highly enough!
