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.

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.

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.

Reviews for Poughkeepsie event photographers

Charlie was friendly and professional on the phone when I first contacted him. His office staff was quick to respond to questions and very timely in emailing details, contract, and acknowledgement of payment received. Lauren, our photographer, arrived 30 minutes before we did and texted us to confirm her arrival! She was intuitive and calm and made good suggestions on posing photos. She never once made us feel rushed...great personality! Highly recommend this photographer for any formal event.

I’ve never worked with Leslie in the past, so I was a bit skeptical of her at first. But everything changed for the better once I spoke to her on the phone! She is an incredible person that is highly professional, committed to her work, and very punctual. She is definitely a five-star pro and was a pleasure to work with! Leslie took the time out to understand my needs and what I was looking for and captured that very well in the amazing photos that she took of my engagement. She is very easy to work with and knows what she is doing! She is also able to quickly turnaround all the photos she took. If anyone is looking for a photographer to capture their event, then look no further. I give her my highest recommendations and have already made plans to use her services in the very near future! Thank you so much Leslie :)

We loved working with Brea for our maternity photoshoot and our baby shower event photos! She made the whole experience much easier and was really fun to work with! She guided us through every picture and she captured all the little details and great candid shots that will always be memorable! I always felt like I was talking to a friend when communicating with her. Can't wait to share with our friends and family! We highly recommend BLV Images for anyone that is looking for professional service, excellent quality and wonderful experience! Thank you Brea!
