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.

Do you tip a photographer for family photos?

Tipping a photographer for family portraits is not standard etiquette. A great way to recognize a family photographer who goes above and beyond is to write them a glowing review. You probably found your photographer by reading online reviews, so paying it forward by letting everyone know how much you appreciate their work is a great gift. Write your review after they have delivered the final edited photos on time and you’ve confirmed that you’re happy with the terrific portraits they took.

What should you wear for a family photo?

A family photographer captures your family in a series of professionally edited portraits. You can be goofy, you can be formal, you can be exactly how you want to be. To that end, you can wear what makes you feel comfortable and confident — feeling good translates to looking good in photos. However, top family photographers do have some style suggestions that will make your family photos more visually cohesive:

  • Ask the photographer for color suggestions if you’re doing an outdoor photo shoot. Location and time of day can affect which shades will fade in the sunlight and what will stand out in a good way.
  • Stay away from a mix of stripes or plaids on multiple people — the effect is too busy.
  • Steer clear of tiny patterns, which blend together too much.
  • Avoid wearing matching outfits.
  • Do wear outfits that are complementary in color.
  • Choose color over black-and-white outfits.
  • Do choose a theme, such as pastels, fall colors or summer colors.
  • Opt for tonally similar colors.  
  • Go easy on makeup for outdoor photo shoots.

How much does a baby photography cost?

Portrait photography provides parents with lasting images of the first whirlwind months of a newborn’s life. The cost varies based on several factors, including the length and location of the session, the number of photos provided, and the amount of editing and retouching the photographer does. The national average cost for baby photos is $150-$200. Some baby photographers charge by the number of photos provided, typically ranging from an average of $299 for 20 high-resolution edited photos, to an average of $399 for 35 photos, to $499 for all of the images taken in a single session. Props and location affect the cost, too; an elaborate studio shoot with props and professional lighting may increase the cost to $600-$700 for 20-50 photos. Adding a second location or asking the photographer to travel can add $70-$250 to the cost of the session. Photographers may also charge extra fees for providing additional photos and DVDs, scheduling weekend sessions, and shooting siblings. Expect to pay at least a $50 deposit when you book a portrait photography session.

Where is the best place to take baby pictures?

Baby pictures are among the most popular types of portrait photography, and most newborn photographers are well versed in the best places to take baby pictures in their local areas. Some newborn photographers will come to the hospital to shoot the baby within a day or two of birth, while others have set up their studios to accommodate the needs of infants. Some parents prefer to have the newborn photographer come to their home or travel to a favorite park or other outdoor location. Like any portrait photography, the best place to take baby pictures is the place you like best and that will yield the types of photos you want of your baby, whether that’s posed and carefully lit studio portraits or spontaneous, casual photos at home. Work with a local newborn photographer to find a safe, calm location with great lighting and some privacy for your family.

Jay and his son did an incredible job at our wedding! They were very professional and very nice. I couldn’t have asked for a better photographer. You would think with how awesome of a job they did they would cost an arm and a leg, but they are more then affordable. We got quotes from several photographers and Jay beat a lot of them by a substantial amount. I’m really glad we chose them to shoot our precious day! I would definitely recommend him for anything you need a photographer for!

This was my first time looking into getting headshots for job applications and I was more than happy with the work from Jarek. He’s a professional photographer doing work at a very affordable price. He gives you quality work. If this is your first time looking into getting headshots choose Jarek!

OMG. I cannot even begin to express my delight, gratitude and satisfaction with Adam's work, and the overall experience. My husband and I were looking to have a "fun" wedding in Las Vegas - and were originally planning to have a friend take photos on an iPhone. Being that I wanted the pictures to be taken by someone that wasn't in our wedding party - I reached out on Thumbtack to find a skilled photographer that could take some quality shots, for not 'full wedding package' prices. After reviewing several responses and sample work, I replied to Adam, based upon his very fair quote and sample photos. Best decision I've ever made. The photos = remarkable The price = affordable and fair Adam = Cool, fun, personable and amazing to work with. Adam is the reason that I will have cherished wedding photos forever. When the time comes for us to have our "traditional wedding" in a couple years, I am thrilled that I have already found a photographer. Super duper a million times happy! A + a million +'s

OMG I don’t even know where to start, I’m so grateful for finding Glenn looking in the website for our wedding photographer, first Glenn answered every question rapidly, he always kept in touch with us, our wedding wasn’t a traditional wedding and we decided to have a photo shoot on the strip, sounds easy and many places offer photo shoots on the strip but the hard part was finding someone who accepts to photo shoot our wedding with our 22 guests in the strip, our ceremony was in the suite, our dinner at Cosmo and we ended the night on a party bus with our whole crew, Glenn join us every moment everywhere, he is a very nice and cool guy and make everyone feel comfortable taking lots of pictures, everybody enjoyed posing and we even had fun while he photograph us, next day for surprise of everyone he had our pictures ready to be share, in a nice link and he categorized them into separate folders for each location we visited, wonderful memories, and the price is very affordable and we get way more value that the money we paid. He will be our family photographer for sure, highly recommend.
