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.

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.

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.

Reviews for Raleigh couple photographers

Laura did an excellent job with our engagement photos. We were her first lesbian couple, and she went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable and prepare for the shoot. She set up a pinterest board where we could both pin ideas, and had great suggestions to talk us through the process. After the shoot, we had our photos within days. I highly recommend her!

I'd hire Kelley Bennett again in a heartbeat! She did an outstanding job photographing my husband's 40th birthday party, which had about 80 guests and ran over four hours. The gig was initially for two hours, but I came prepared to pay for a longer session. I'm so glad I did. The pictures turned out fantastic! She captured really great shots. It was such a relief to know that she had it covered so I and our guests could just enjoy ourselves. Kelley gave me a great rate. She was easy to communicate with beforehand and flexible about extending the shoot. A professional, Kelley did a wonderful job working in low-light, indoors and outside, capturing clear images, nice bokeh and excellent white balance, taking candid shots and portraits, nice framing, and capturing the action - dancing, laughing, cheersing. I got the image files within a couple days via Dropbox. How lucky am I to have posted on Thumbtack less than 48 hours before the party to accept the first response within minutes and totally win? Very lucky!
