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.

Mike was a pleasure to work with and I would recommend to anyone who needs a photographer for their corporate event. He captured the shots that were needed and delivered photos in a very timely manner. Mike jumped in and shot 2 different events in 2 days for us. From beginning to end my experience with Mike was top notch.

My initial phone contact with Moreland Photography was positive, professional and reassuring. The event to be photographed does not occur, however, for over two months so I would have to wait until after that to give a full review.

He is the best photographer I could have hired for my special day. I booked him 12-14 hours before my event and he was amazing. I got lucky that I found him. He is extremely professional and I am waiting to see the final photos. He showed me some samples of my pictures a couple of hours after my event. I already love them. Joe was there before time and stayed extra even though it was freezing.

Candidly photographer in Cincinnati did a horrible job! The pictures were low quality, sometimes blurry, and dark. It was apparent early on that the photographer was inexperienced. She could not get the camera to work accordingly because it was not her camera. She told me that she borrowed the camera from her boyfriend. A camera she had never used before and was, of course, not familiar with its functions. I was very disappointed because the event was my mom's 70th birthday celebration and we wanted a photographer to help us capture the beauty and the magic of the celebration. What we got was garbage. Even my 6-year-old can take better pictures. I have used professional photographers every year for different events so I know what quality professional pictures look like and these were far from that. The photographer is a very nice and honest person (which is why I know all of this detail), but she is not a professional photographer. I felt that Candidly lied to us. They displayed the portfolio of the "Cincinnati Photographer" that was amazing when they responded to my bid for a photographer in Cincinnati. However, the photographer who showed up was, undoubtedly, not the person who took those portfolio pictures. It is sad to know that Candidly sent a novice to practice shooting pictures at our mom's 70th birthday. Our mom was very upset when she saw the pictures. I was very embarrassed that I hired Candidly. If there is such a thing as -1 star, I would give that to Candidly. Shame on you. You should give us our money back. This is not how you run a business. Unhappy customer from California.

My fiance and I decided to elope last minute and we really wanted to commemorate our big day, even though it was on such short notice. Kingsley responded to us promptly and offered us a very attractive deal. On the day, he showed up at the agreed time and was very eager about our big day. We asked for his help with recording the whole ceremony on our personal camera, with which he agreed and helped film it perfectly. Kingsley was very professional and helped both my husband and I (we're both a bit camera shy) for our couple and individual photos. After the wedding, he replied with the finished photos within the same week. They were amazing! Our families and we love them a lot. We are really thankful for what Kingsley did for us! I would definitely recommend his skills for your special event.
