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.

Absolutely amazing photographer. Not only a pleasure to work with, but our wedding photos were beyond perfect. Highly recommend, and can’t wait for the next big life event to have them with us again!

Ria is great to work with - she's professional, flexible, and had a quick turn around for three, short event (non-wedding) photography engagements. Her experience clearly shows in the well composed, well lit photos she produces. We'll hire her again!

Kiran did our Save the Date photos and we hired her that day for our wedding. She was so laid-back and easy to talk to, but professional at the same time. The photos turned out amazing, and I can't wait to have her at the wedding next year. I'd highly recommend her for your event.

I hired Carl to do our family reunion. I discovered Carl via the Internet and after reviewing his photos on his website , I decided to call him. He was so easy to talk to I decided to hire him. It was the best thing we ever did. Carl went out of his way to accommodate our event. He went several times to the restaurant to check it out, the lighting at night, he did his homework in other words to ensure he would have the right equipment the day of the event. At our reunion, which had 70 people he miraculously got us all together for one big group photo. He stayed and took individual family shots and was able to produce photos right on the spot. Instant gratification is always the best. I would definitely recommend Carl to anyone. I personally would hire Carl for our next event. His results are outstanding.

Carl Gerace took great candid pictures at our Friday event and then returned on Saturday to take still picture in front of a backdrop. Both nights he did a wonderful job. The pictures are fantastic. Carl, his wife and assistant were very personable and such a pleasure to work with. A+ photographer!!!!!!!!!!!!

I was celebrating my 60th Birthday and wanted a photographer for the event. I used Thumbtack to get Carl Gerace. Carl and his wife Caroline were fantastic. They met with us to share some ideas for the pictures and on the night of the party they did everything we asked and more. I couldn't be happier with the results. The night went by so quickly, but at least I have some great photos to look at and share with my family and friends.

Carl and his wife Caroline were a dream to work with!! I hired them for a 50th high school class reunion and they made sure everyone's photos were taken and they also brought a printer to venue for those people who wanted their pics immediately. They also brought a red drop cloth with my school color as a backdrop. I compared prices of numerous photographers for my event, and they had by far, the best prices. If I have another occasion where I need a professional photographer, I would hire Images by Gerace in a heartbeat!! They were wonderful!!

We hired Carl's services for our baby shower. Carl was very professional. He was prompt in replying to messages and calls. He was at the venue well before time to set up his equipment. He was well prepared to take pictures of our guests as they arrived. He also had an onsite printer if one was interested in taking prints right then and there. Turn around time for our photos were about 72 hrs and we were pleased with the quality and the quantity of pictures he had taken. He and his assistant were cordial with our guests. We would definitely consider him for our next event.

I am so happy that Kiran was able to do our reception pictures-my only regret is that we didn't book her to do the ceremony pictures too! My makeup was smeared off my face, my updo fell, and I was a nervous sweaty wreck yet Kiran not only managed to make me look like a beautiful fairy bride but she captured the happiness that me and my husband shared with getting married and for that I am supremely grateful. I would recommend Kiran for any events; she was personable, met our photo requests including getting into a BOAT offshore to take a group shot and took great quality pictures. Thank you Kiran!
