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.

Lauren took excellent photos in a challenging outdoor environment, and I greatly appreciated her expertise. She was very easy to work with and responded quickly to my request. She is definitely an ideal choice for outdoor event photography.

Angela is amazing! We booked Angela as an event photographer to capture our family, friends & individual photos for my daughter's 1st birthday. Angela was very easy to communicate with. She made everything seem so effortless even while working with a room full of people and of course my one year old. She was also very patient and understanding. Everyone was all over of the place & she still managed to get beautiful shots! Angela is excellent at catching candid photos. In fact that was something she mentioned to me while we were going through the booking process , & let me say I was not disappointed. She photographed my event on a Saturday & by Sunday evening I had a couple of edited photos to look at while I waited for the rest. Angela has provided me with a link where I can view all my photos as she edits them. She also has a folder of all the unedited pictures that she took that day that I can always look into. On top of this, her price is fantastic.. super reasonable & in return you get amazing images. Thank you Angela for such a wonderful experience , we will definitely be recommending you to our friends and family!

If you are looking for an awesome photographer, look no further because Mo is your guy. He captured all the beautiful moments of my daughters Sweet 16. I would definitely hire him for another event as well as recommend him. Nothing but good things to say about him. Thank you again Mo!!

I count it not an obligation to leave a review on behalf of Mr. John Flowers, but rather a pleasure. He was such a joy to work with and such fun. This was indeed my first time using Thumbtack, and so I was a very much so nervous about finding “the right” photographer that could fit the needs of my event. What attracted me to booking Mr. Flowers was his professionalism. The saying is true, “First impression is a lasting impression”, and truly he left a lasting impression after our telephone conversation. He reached out to me directly and introduced him. I told him the vision I had and after viewing his work, I was confident in knowing that he could help me bring my vision into fruition. He is very organized, well-mannered, and punctual! Now about his work… A-MAZ-ING. Basically for my birthday I had a “Girls Night In” hotel suite party, but with a twist—we had a group photo shoot. And I must say his work exceeded my expectations. He truly captured our moments. He was able to capture us all beautifully, and in great lighting (lighting is important). I look forward to working with you again soon Mr. Flowers! Sincerely, A satisfied client :-)
