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.

Aditya was amazing from start to finish! I made several changes in scheduling time and he accommodated without issue and produced some beautiful photos of my son’s rehearsal cocktail event. I would HIGHLY recommend Aditya to photograph your special event!

Bob did an incredible job with a lot of moving targets for my dad’s surprise party at a restaurant. He had to capture the surprise moments, the guests, the speeches, and the touching moments all in the tough lighting that comes in every restaurant. He was very responsive to my many questions, prompt on the day of the event, great with his suggestions, and followed through on delivery of some incredible photos. So glad we booked his services!

Empire 4 media confirmed to me that they will shoot my ceremony, and totally lost touch. Never responded to my calls, messages, or messages on the app as well. I’ve been trying to follow up many times but not even a single response after confirming that they will do my event. This caused me a lot of stress as I didn’t talk to any other pros since this was confirmed, and as the day was approaching, with no photography confirmed, it made really anxious and nervous. I didn’t find Empire 4 Media trustworthy or reliable. I would have really appreciated if they atleast got back to me and said no. I wouldn’t recommend this to anyone.
