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.

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!!!!

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.

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!

Sammy was so flexible as our plans changed several times hours before the event. She was so sweet and took the most amazing photos. We completely went out on a limb hiring someone when we lived out of state and Sammy went above and beyond! We highly recommend her for anyone looking for a photographer in New Orleans. ❤️

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.

Josh was a dream to work with! He was on time, extremely professional, approached folks for photos but wasn't annoying about it. His photos were awesome, and I received lots of compliments from our group. The turn around was quick and I received the photos within 24 hours. It was a relief to work with someone for a corporate event that I didn't have to worry about!! I will use him again the next time I'm in New Orleans and would definitely refer people to Josh!

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!

Amber was amazing from the first time I spoke with her. She was on time and fun. I have some of the most beautiful memories from my wedding reception because of her photos. She was able to capture “in the moment” pictures that were so genuine and real. Some of the photos I had no idea she was even standing that close to me. I will hire Amber for every important event in my life for now on. Mona & Chris Dunn

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!

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.

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.

We were really pleased with punctuality professionalism and just downright making me feel so comfortable in such a hectic time because he even stuck around beyond his time to make sure that he got the shots that I needed him to get I really appreciated all that he did for me and my family to make a very great memory of our event.

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!
