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.

Nitin covered our photography needs for our twin 2 year olds' birthday party. We couldn't be happier with the experience. He stayed in contact with us the entire time. He drove in from Columbus to our location in Dayton on time. He was able to capture all our special moments without needing direction. Our photos came in quickly...within a few days of the event. Unlike some other photographers, it was clear from the pictures that he had spent time post production to ensure quality photos. We were very happy all around!

Mike Cotton did an outstanding job of photographing our 25th wedding anniversary party. We are truly grateful for the beautiful photographs he took, which give us lasting memories to return to again and again. The evening was a joyous one for us, and the happiness of all of our guests comes through clearly in Mike's images. We especially appreciate the gorgeous depths of color he achieved, the way he graciously invited our guests to pose for portrait shots, and how he captured all of the important moments during the evening. We do not recall him moving about, taking hundreds of photos (he was very discreet), but the proof of his excellent work arrived in the mail less than one week later. Thank you, thank you, thank you, Mike! We heartily recommend your service to others who are planning to hire a photographer for an event.

Scott was wonderful. He sent me links so I could review his photography. He and his wife Andrea met with us at the venue a few weeks before the wedding. He came up with several great ideas for photos. He asked us many questions so he could get an idea of what we were interested in. He encouraged us to look at other wedding photos and to e-mail him any pictures or thoughts we had. We e-mailed several things to him and he incorporated those pictures into the evening event. While Scott was busy doing professional shots, his wife was busy taking many candid shots. They worked very well together. Scott has a very good eye and great ideas. They made us feel comfortable and at ease. As promised, the next day he had several shots ready and e-mailed them to me for social media. I am very excited to see the rest of the pictures when they are processed. He came early and took as many pictures as possible before the ceremony so my guests weren't waiting a long time afterward for us to finish. He and his wife were also kind and considerate if things didn't go exactly as we planned. I am extremely pleased and would recommend Scott to my family and friends. I would also use him again for any future events I might have.

Terry is a consummate professional! From day one, he responded early to our questions (both in the app, and later, in email). He scheduled time on the weekend to meet us for coffee (socially distant, of course). Even before the coffee meet-and-greet, he went to our venue and took pictures of it so he would be familiar with it if/when we asked questions, and so he could show US some of his own photos of the venue. Throughout the process, he kept us informed early, was flexible with scheduling (we had rain the day of the event, and scheduled some weekend time later, when the weather was better), and when he was able to bring in his photo partner, worked exceptionally well with her, and made us and our family feel completely welcome and appropriately involved in the process. We definitely WILL work with Terry again. He's wonderful!
