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.

Mehmet did a wonderful job of capturing our wedding day. Because of his background as a photo journalist, he was able to get amazing shots during our reception! The quality of his work is excellent and he was very responsive and professional. And a nice person to work with as well. I highly recommend him for anyone looking to get great action shots during an event. The bridal party and family photos turned out very beautiful as well.

I CANNOT say enough great things about our experience with Kelley. She did event photography with us and got so many amazing Kodak moments. Portraits we're stunning, special moments captured, and a fabulous time was had by all. We are too lucky to have found her and can't wait to use her again.

I can not say enough good things about Damian! He shot our wedding last week and he was so good that even my wedding guests were raving about him! He is a true professional and I can’t even believe that I paid such a reasonable price for such gorgeous pictures. He was a pleasure to work with and I’m in love with the photos that he took. If you are looking for a photographer for an event...HIRE THIS GUY! Damian, you rock! Thanks for being a part of our special day. You really elevated our wedding to the next level!

Kelley took photos for our engagement party that was murder mystery themed. The party was so much fun and it was amazing to see the photos! It felt like we were reliving the party. Kelley managed to capture every moment and everyone's emotions and feelings without us even realizing. It was great to see the big reveals throughout the party again. Some of what she captured showed me what I even missed on in the moment while I was preoccupied. I will definitely be hiring Kelley again if I need to and she's available and I highly recommend hiring here for your event.
