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.

Zach was extremely professional, prompt and courteous. He took pictures for our VIP Grand Opening event. The photos where excellent. He took all the requested photos including architectural and social, fun party shots. Turn around time on photos was very quick as well.

Having Kevin Ewing Photography take pictures of my event was the best decision ever! From the moment we met, Kevin was responsive, punctual and VERY professional. Kevin explained what would take place the evening of the event well in advance so that I didn't have anything to worry about. On the evening of the event, Kevin showed up ON TIME and started working right away, taking pictures of the decorations, the venue and each guest as they arrived. Kevin's personality fit right in with the party guests, which made it comfortable for everyone. Guests were able to relax and enjoy the party, as Kevin worked the room making sure to get the best photos possible. Thank you so much Kevin, you helped make the event a HUGE success!

Working with Msf Photography was great! Mecoes was wonderful. He was punctual, friendly, professional, and fun to work with. He captured every moment of my event. There were times I forgot he was there. The photos says it all. The details of every single rose, the people, the games, the food show a good time was had by all. I would definitely use him again.

Keith was wonderful to work with! He arrived early and got many great shots of different guests at our son’s birthday party. Having him there to take photos of the guests was special. We were happy to receive the gallery within about a week of the event. We will use him again in the future!

Cristi was an excellent photographer for my cousins baptism. He was professional, ontime, and so easy to work with. He was really good a capturing candid moments. After a 3 hour event he gave us over 350 pictures. We were very pleased with the quality of them. Thank you so much!

Michael was a FANTASTIC photographer for our wedding day! He showed up early and stayed late, and was super friendly and easy to work with. He posed us and the wedding party to make beautiful shots, and also took ALL of the specific photos that we requested the day of. The shots he took were beautiful- everyone we showed them too were extremely impressed. During the ceremony and reception, Michael was EVERYWHERE. And every time I found myself in a moment where I would I want a picture, he was right there as if reading my mind. We got a little over 100 photos the day after the wedding and rest about a month later. I could not recommend him more to help capture your event and all the special moments that they entail. He went above and beyond all of our expectations! We couldn't be more thankful to have such beautiful photos to remember our special day.
