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.

Sarah was the photographer for an event I was the Wedding Planner at. She was prompt amc attentive. The bride was not very polite and was very late but Sarah remained professional. Sarah even helped others with preperation task while waiting (definitely above and beyond). Sarah is a professional from her demeanor and presence at work to the quality of her photos... which you are sure to love!!! Highly recommend!!

Thanks, Darin! I would definitely recommend Darin. Not only are his photos wonderful, he gets them to you with lightning speed! He communicated beyond effectively to understand the types of shots we wanted at our event and was able to work with a few lighting obstacles.

Dick was proactive in checking on picture-taking locations that were acceptable in the church per the clergy, politely extricated the couple for a few family photos by the alter, and took plenty of pictures of the event. We are still waiting to see those pictures, and look forward to selecting a few as keepsakes.

I had a great time working with Kyrsti and Mandi! They made our event very easy for us, we didn't have to worry about a thing. The photos turned out beautiful and we will cherish them with friends and family for years to come. Thanks Krysti and Mandi!

They did a wonderful job with my father's 70th Surprise birthday party! My dad kinda blew our photo opp by coming in the wrong door for his party and instead of just being upset about missing the shot, Ms. Barbara, asked us to "re-do" the shot. It was cute and I believe it took courage to ask. It is one of the best stories from his birthday! They delivered the pictures in a beautiful flash drive and we have memories that we will cherish for a lifetime. Thank you for sharing our event with us and capturing the joy of the day!

Giovanna first captured us in Feb 2019, for our engagement. She and her husband, Gabe, were amazing! Two wonderfully talented and kind people that we are glad to have met! The photos turned out perfect! Just a few days ago, Giovanna and her son, Judah, were able to capture our wedding ceremony! I was so ecstatic to find out that she was available for us! Highly, HIGHLY recommend her services for any event or memory that you would like to be captured and cherished forever! Looking forward to working with her again in the future! :)

Andre was amazing. I reached out via thumbtack and he was the only person to follow up 2x. Time zones were an issue with me being in New Zealand and him being in The USA. I liked his vibe and was comfortable the event would be properly documented-a family gathering. I ended up having a high school reunion the following weekend and was happy that he was available then too...no one had considered that a professional photographer would be a massive improvement over just a bunch of selfies... If you want quality and amazing memories, Andre is someone I can totally resommend!
