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.

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.

I haven’t received the photo yet (just hd the event last night) but Mathias was very professional and easy to work with at our event!

Michael Kyllo-Kittleson was a pleasure to work with as an event photographer. She was rock-solid reliable, very responsive to our needs, effective (but unobtrusive) at our event, and produced quality photos, including charming candids. I highly recommend!

Erica was a pleasure to work with. I hired her for a corporate awards banquet and she did not disappoint! The photos were well received by all who attended the event. If and when we host another event in the Minneapolis area, Erica will be my first call. I would highly recommend Erica to anyone needing photographs taken at an event!

I hired Cindy to photograph a private event I had with my family and friends. Cindy did an amazing job capturing the entire night. The photos were creative, artistic and exactly what I had asked for. Cindy truly cares about the quality of her work. Along with her professionalism, she was fun and a pleasure to work with. I will be having this event again next summer and Cindy will definitely be my photographer.

Rory was fantastic! We had a last minute request for a photographer at our corporate event and he immediately contacted me. The process was seamless and he was extremely responsive. We got the photos back the next day! Could not be happier. Fabulous work.

Sophie was a dream photographer! She went to our venue before hand to scout out the best places for photos and was early, despite traffic! She was very thoughtful in her arrangements of people and added some great “props” photos to remember from the event. We are so pleased with the final products and cannot wait to frame all the beautiful family portraits. Thanks again, Sophie!

We love that photos! I was showing my boss a few of the samples he sent me, and she feel in love with them! He did an excellent job, much better then anyone we've ever had in the past. Would definitely recommend Kay Michael Photography and Video to others looking to capture their work event!

We hired Lea to do a corporate event and Lea was very responsive and easy to work with. Her photos looked great and she turned them around very quickly. Looking forward to working with Lea again!

Sophie was amazing to work with for our wedding. She was very easy to get in contact with before the event and did a fantastic job shooting. All of the photos turned out great and we couldn't have asked for a better experience.

Dennis was an incredible flexible photographer and worked well under pressure and circumstance. He was thoughtful in the types of photos we might need for the event and was willing to take some risks as well (literally, as we were on top of a building!). I would recommend working with him again, as he was dedicated and zealous in making sure we had everything we needed.

I (luckily) found Matthias last minute to photograph an event at our home. He was excellent at blending in to the scene, versus disrupting it, and provided us the professional, high quality shots we were after, without breaking the bank! Trust the thumbtack reviews :)

Noemi did an amazing job photographing our twin 6 month old boys “sip and see”!! We did a family session before the event- she was so patient and great with them- really got some amazing shots! (No easy task with two infants). During the event she was able to get some beautiful pictures of the set up as well as all our family and friends. Highly recommend!!

JC did an outstanding job photographing my event. He was willing to work in two locations, and even rented a camera when his personal camera had some issues to complete the assignment. I highly recommend JC. I will use him again when in Minneapolis.

Jake was sooo easy to work with and made it easy for us. The shots turned out fantastic! We didn’t know the good spots to get great photos and he took us around the city, getting great shots. He let us drive the bus, but provided us with guidance when we didn’t know what to do. I would HIGHLY recommend Two Oaks photo to memorialize any important event.

Giliane was very easy to work with and was able to respond to all our needs leading up to the wedding and during the actual day. She was considerate of the needs of our church and wishes of the pastor for photography during the day. She was also able to be flexible on the day of with our needs. She was able to keep the stress off of us, minimizing the questions she had during the event and letting us have peace of mind, knowing all important events would be captured. Giliane was very friendly and was prepared for every eventuality. Her experience in related professions and expertise in photography make her a must have for weddings and celebrations. The quality of her work was excellent and her rates are affordable, making her a value that I will recommend to others.

Sarah is a very sweet and friendly professional. We loved her vibe from the moment we met via Zoom and she came through with some amazing photos of our wedding ceremony! We would recommend Sarah to anyone looking to capture moments from any special event. She will definitely deliver!

Professional work. Our staff enjoyed working with Rory. He was locked in to our project from the point of hire and met all our requirements included in our shot list without direction. He is a proactive communicator and responds quickly to emails, phone etc. Photos turned out great! Will hire Rory again for corporate events.

I hired Kay Michael for an annual business conference. Preconference quotes and communication were spot on. Toni was awesome to work with. She answered questions and provide great details as to how the process was quoted. She even broke the quote into two separate scenarios so I could pick what would best work for our event. Michael was our photographer and he was on time, professional and the photos turned out great. He did exactly what was asked of him and then some! I would recommend and used them again. Great job!

I would hire SLiCK Images again in a heartbeat! She knows her craft, was willing to stay longer at the last minute, took lots of photos, and did it in an unobtrusive manner. She took the time to check out the site of our event a week in advance to ascertain the lighting, get a “feel” for the space, and be certain to bring the right equipment. She is professional and delightful!
