Your burning questions: answered

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.

Julie did a great job at our annual fundraiser gala. We had our original photographer canceled last minute. So I called Julie and she was great about responding to my call, and gave us a fair price . At our event, she was really professional. I gave her an outline of the event, and she took it from there . She even stayed later because our event ran a little late. The pictures came out great. I would definitely recommend her, and would hire her for future events.

Mark Jones went above and beyond to help our company with a last minute request, literally within a few hours, to take photos during an event at our office. The quality of his work exceeded our expectations and highly recommend his services. - Accelovance Inc.

Seriously! What a great balance of professionalism and friendliness. Gethro was responsive to all my needs and direction. As a freelance graphic designer and photo-retoucher myself, I fully appreciated his efforts and presence at the party, shooting every aspect of the event and more. He delivered on our contract terms as expected. I will be working with him again for sure and highly recommend him.

First off, we only paid $400 for Asha Prime to photograph our wedding. They are very kind and respectful and pleasant to work with but, you get what you pay for. We asked them to come at 3pm for a 4pm wedding. They showed up around 3:15 and barely got any photos of me getting ready and none of my husband before the ceremony. They also got no shots of me walking down the aisle with my father. Then after the ceremony they took several minutes to get each shot and it ended up taking two hours to get just a handful of good photos which threw off our entire timeline. I’ve have never met a slower photographer. You have to ask for specific photos you want of family or friends or you don’t get any. After the wedding getting photos back has been ridiculous. I have had to ask for photos now twice and we only get a few at a time. At one point we went an hour out of our way to meet up with him to get the photos and he told us he didn’t have them. It has been three months and we still don’t have the USB of 400 photos we were promised. I get the impression his business is taking off and he keeps saying yes to events but doesn’t have the time to process the photos. TL;DR if you’re ok with wasting lots of time and not getting the shots you really want, them Asha Prime is fine but you really do get what you pay for.

Jamaal was on time and called ahead to confirm the venue and re-confirm his attendance - and that is where the good experience pretty much ended. The most disappointing impact was in the photos themselves. A good number were back shots, side shots or near identical duplicates/triplicates. More than necessary were taken of the "scenery" - building, food, etc - never expressed as part of my expectations from him at all, mind. Notwithstanding that I identified the principals/immediate family at the beginning of the event, we were not even captured in clear shots for more than a quarter of the photos; a few particular guests appeared in more photos than any of the principals! I don't think I got value for money and he did not meet fully my expectations for value or final product.

We could not have been happier with our maternity photo session with Josh. He is kind, professional and flexible. The quality of his work is excellent and I personally love the aesthetics of his work. The price point for his work is also extremely reasonable, especially for this area and the beautiful work he delivers. We are planning to work with him again to take pictures of our growing family and any other special event that may come up. We highly recommend him!

We hired Barbara for our 10th anniversary family photo shoot and loved our experience with her. We have two young kids and it was quite a challenge to have their full attention on some pictures however, Barbara and her partner succeeded in taking lovely family pics that we really like. Barbara was also very responsive with after service assistance when I needed her. I will definitely hire her again for future events😇😇 Thank you guys!
