Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

Are there ways to be safe if I hire a photographer when social distancing?

If you decide to hire a photographer, see if the photographer can take photos outdoors or in a large space so all involved parties can maintain the recommended distance between themselves. You should also sanitize surfaces, avoid handshakes, don’t make any other physical contact and use digital platforms to complete payments. Speak with a local photographer in your area to put a strategy in place.

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.

We were very pleased with the services for our son's 1st birthday party! Mo was very professional and punctual. He is also very responsive. His turn around time is amazing! We received our photos in less than 10 hours from the event and was very easy in terms of obtaining our photos. Would definitely recommend anyone looking to capture the special moments of their event with AAAK Photography!

Toks was assigned my Photograher for a baby shower event and from our first conversation Toks was very professional. The day of the event he was on time and took plenty of photos. He engaged very well with my guests and made everyone feel comfortable. The rates are reasonable and quality is excellent. I would definitely contact candidly again for my next event.

If you are looking for a photographer for your wedding or event, Lee is the one. He is an incredible photographer, we hired him for our small ceremony and reception at Liberty State Park. The photos came out amazing, we are in love with the result. He is a wonderful person, very responsible (he arrived 30 min before the ceremony), my family felt very comfortable with him and they enjoyed the moment. Thanks Lee!

Our experience with Lizzie was excellent. She was proactive and professional right from start of quote to timely delivery of pictures. She is very friendly with kids and did good job with guests during the party. She even offered to do a outdoor session on different time due to rain on our event day. Definitely recommend her for event photography

From first contact he clearly presented all information and answered questions and messages promptly. On the day of my daughter's sweet 16, he arrived early and immediately begin photographing the decor and set up, which i was glad was done before guests started coming in. He was professional throughout the event and several of my guests commented that he was nice and friendly. He took amazing photographs that my family will forever cherish. He has an awesome eye and we are truly satisfied with the outcome. I appreciate that he was able to take the photographs without disrupting the flow. The contract was clear and he delivered all that was written and more. I would absolutely use again for an event and would recommend. Thanks for everything

I hired Kaddy to cover one of my wedding events. She showed up on time and was very professional. She covered every aspect of the various rituals I had at an Indian pre wedding event. The photos quality was excellent and everyone was very satisfied with her. Her big smile was an add-on to the amazing service she provided me. I would definitely recommend her. Thanks Kaddy!

We would love to work with him again on future projects.

We hired Brian through Thumbtack to photograph our sons rehearsal dinner aboard the Atlatis. Being from out of state, Thumbtack was able to introduce us to photographers available to do the job. After looking at everyone's portfolio's, we selected Brian. We loved what he did with lighting, capturing candid's, and black and whites. He did not disappoint. The pictures are amazing. I highly recommend Brian for your event and thank you for capturing our special night. L&M Hoffman

Hassan did photography and make-up for us for my sister's wedding. He was very punctual, hard working and helped us beyond his responsibilities to make the event successful. He stayed long hours, took a load of pictures and provided them all to us edited and unedited at no extra charge within a week. I would strongly recommend him.
