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.

Heather was hired as our photographer at my mother's 80th birthday celebration. We had the event at a venue and my mother & other family members flew in from California for the event on July 4th 2021. As of today October 2021, I have not received my photos and any attempts to reach Heather have failed. She has not returned any messages.

Pictures and photos came out great and in high quality. After an awful turn of events, and almost having the portfolio of photos destroyed, David drove hack to our shoot a few days later and re-created them. He made sure to make up the "snafoo", and I was able to get my pictures redone, with wonderful props - he even sent me a rew printouts of my photos 😊.

David is seriously one of the most talented, friendly, accommodating - and truly exceptional - photographers I’ve ever worked with. To begin, he consistently responded to every question and call, if not immediately, then within very short order. He instantly understood what we were trying to accomplish and became a valued collaborator to achieve the goal. At the event, he instantly connected with our guests; his kindness and humor - on top of his amazing efficiency to capture the right shot - adding to their overall enjoyment and experience. His price quote was right on point for us and he was beyond generous with his time - and there was no upselling. He clearly loves what he does, keenly understands all facets of capturing one in a lifetime moments, and takes great personal pride in delivering the absolutely best experience and phenomenal photographs. I truly wish our paths had crossed sooner so he could have photographed other occasions and events for us. If David is available for your event - grab him!

Ken and Julie did an outstanding job of capturing all the excitement and atmosphere of our corporate event. Viewing the pictures days later, I feel like I am there again. Ken went out of his way to get the best shots…including climbing on a very tall ladder to capture the perfect group photo. Ken was flexible, accommodating and easy to work with. I highly recommend Ken Love Photography!

We had an amazing experience with Chris. He knew exactly how to take memorable photos of our special event and knew exactly how to execute his ideas in the best possible way. He has an amazing personality as well. If you get a chance to work with him, do not miss it!

It was a pleasure to work with David Paul. Of the photographers that responded to our request for our event, I clicked more with David than with any of the others. From the time we started working with him, he was always both professional and responsive. He gave me about a five day turnout for the pictures. Having heard of people that, two months after a wedding, were still waiting for proofs, five days sounded great. it ended up taking six days but I will cut him some slack. Everything that I have asked to have done has been done. When I told him my husband's hair was too blue in three pictures, he had new photos to us within half an hour. And that was on a Sunday morning. I would not have been surprised if it had taken him until Monday to get back to me. He took all the pictures I wanted and was very unobtrusive which I count as a big plus. No one likes to have a photographer in their face all the time. I knew he was taking a lot of pictures but was not feeling as if I was always in the spotlight. I would not hesitate to use him again for another event.
