Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.

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.

Taking photo's of my wife's 60th Birthday Party. He was on time, not obtrusive at the event. We going thru the photo's now and am not ready to comment on their overall quality, however we have a lot to choose from (over 400)so I will be surprised if we are not happy. Great personality.

Metin provided excellent service with my project. The photos are exactly what I needed - they are beautifully taken and artistic. Metin took my instruction at my event like the pro he is and the result show in the photos. Additionally, he is punctual and responsive to texts/emails. I highly recommend Picaboost Studios and Metin!

Frances was the most amazing person to work with. Service was top notch. She went ahead and worked for another hour because the event went on for another hour. I did expect the photos to be about 200 at least but I got 150 for 3 hours which was very beautiful by the way. Would recommend. Let the photographer know if you want more pictures too. Don’t assume.

Greg was great to work with. He met our needs and then some for our wedding celebration. The photos that he took captured so many moments that will leave us with many lasting memories from our special event. Fantastic framed and candid shots. Highly skilled professional would hire him again.

Jessica was AMAZING! She came to do a photo shoot for my daughter's college graduation and she made the magic happen! For starters, she kept in constant contact with me once I booked the job, she was punctual on the day of the photoshoot and, her personality put everyone at ease and able to get into the photo shoot. She made my daughter look like a professional model! I loved how she worked with her and asked her how she wanted to pose and gave her the freedom to just be herself. The pictures were everything we'd hoped for and more - She was so kind, friendly, and accomodating - we dragged her all over that college campus and she went along willingly lol! The finished project was professional but didn't appear staged. You could tell my daughter enjoyed every minute of it. I will use her again for any other events I want to be captured in photos without hesitation!
