Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.

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.

Reviews for New York event photographers

Lizzie was punctual, however, we were not pleased with the photos of our event. Photos had chopped hands, did not include the main elements of the event and lacked focus.

Emily is an amazing photographer - her pictures developed beautifully. She captured candid and formal photos for our launch event -- lighting and quality of her photos were exceptional. I would definitely hire her again for events!

Mary was a pleasure to work with and was very professional. The photos from the event are absolutely stunning as well!! We walked away from our party with no iphone photos, because everyone saw Mary was there to capture every moment. We have many candid and posed photos from every part of our event. She was easy to coordinate with prior to the event, came on time, and was very responsive after as well. Thank you Mary!!!!

Noel covered an alumni reception at an exclusive club very last minute when my other photographer cancelled. He was prompt, polite, and was well received by my entire team! His event photography was great and I received a link to the photos within one day. Noel was very responsive before and after the event. I would recommend!

With only a couple weeks until my event, I decided I wanted to have a photographer at my event. I got extremely lucky to find Chris. Chris arrived early to the event. He immediately began to capture the small details of the event decor before guests arrived. He captured the most memorable moments of the event. He was friendly and very personable. He was beyond professional. But most importantly, the photos turned out amazing. I still can’t believe I was able to find such an amazing photographer on such short notice, but I am glad that I did. Trust me when I say, you’d be lucky to book Chris for your next event! I highly recommend him.

Mary was amazing! She showed up on time for my event of nearly 100 people, brought a partner with her to help take photos (at no extra charge!) and electronically delivered over 150 of high quality, well-lit, candid photos of my event. I couldn't recommend her enough!

Rudi was great to work with. Her photos were beautiful. She had great tips on taking some photos as a family prior to the event outside the venue to take advantage of the lighting etc. Her photo processing also was excellent.

The communication of my needs and her abilities was challenging. Had a brand sponsored event with very specific needs and not all of them were met. Specifically not a single photo of the brand and their team. Best for social events that don't have a lot of movement as my event was a fitness event and majority of the shots were blurry.

Tohid was absolutely fabulous for our corporate event party--the photos were incredible, we could not have been more thrilled with the photos. He was a pleasure to work with as well and incredibly communicative.
