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.

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!

Joe recently took photos for my fiancee and I at our engagement party and we could not be happier with the final product. The photos turned out beautiful and were delivered promptly following the event. Joe was extremely professional and quick to respond to our questions through the entire process. At the event he captured a wide variety of both candid and posed shots without interrupting the flow of the event.

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!

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.
