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.

We spoke over phone and Shiva came to the venue on time and covered the whole event. After the event he was in constant touch and gave me updates on the video and photo edits of how they have been shaping up. I would definitely recommend Shiva and hire him for my next event.

I would wholeheartedly recommend Katharine Kimball for your photography needs. She was quick to respond to our request for a large group photography event and was nimble on her feet in getting great shots of our program. The photos are beautiful and we'll definitely use her services again. Thanks, Katharine!

Adam was super easy to work with and provided high value services! He arrived early and stayed late, and he turned around our photos incredibly fast. We hired him to do business event photography, and he did a great job. Thanks, Adam!

My wife and I hired Chris as our wedding photographer. He was professional, arrived early, and was flexible with our requests. Everyone loved the photos he took. He found some great backgrounds near our venue to use. The pictures ranged from very candid to staged; but all of them looked awesome! We were lucky to have hired such a great photographer last minute. We'd highly recommend Chris to anyone looking for an event photographer.

Cherie was everything I'd hoped for and more. Loved her photos. She showed up on time, was very professional yet personable. I would recommend her for your event. Mine was a Birthday Party/Reunion.

Katharine has incredible talent capturing amazing moments. Our photo shoot took place in a very small Church, space was very limited Katharine found her way and took amazing photos for us. Everyone at our event loved her including the kids. She will be my go-to person for any invites to come in the future.

Kari photographed our civil ceremony at the Multnomah County Courthouse in downtown Portland and was wonderful! She met us before the ceremony to take photos by the river and across the Hawthorne Bridge (her suggestion!), was incredibly patient with our families in the courthouse awaiting the ceremony, and stayed after the ceremony to take photos on the steps of the courthouse. She made us feel so comfortable, especially as my fiance/husband and I had never done a photo shoot prior! I highly recommend for any event!

Katharine was available at the last minute to provide photography for our event. She was easy to communicate with before and during the event. She prepared me well with what to expect and followed through exactly as she had described. She provided prompt follow up and high quality pictures. All in all, she did a great job at an affordable price. I would work with her again and recommend her to others.

I first approached Zachary after seeing his Instagram and saw his range of talent with working with personal portraits and event photography. He was prompt and responsive throughout the entire process and had a quick turnaround for photo edits. Above all his creativity and experience, made the collaboration process feel extremely natural and fun. The results exceeded my expectation and I will definitely hire him again for future projects. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for high quality photography experience.

Jensen is absolutely amazing! When the photographer we had lined up to capture our kids' 4th birthday party canceled at the last minute, we panicked and thought there was no way we'd find a replacement. Jensen came to our rescue and did an outstanding job photographing our event. The kids immediately warmed up to her, which allowed her to capture tons of awesome candids in addition to a few posed shots. Quality of the pictures is great and we have the pictures proudly displayed both at home and at work. Jensen will definitely be our go-to photographer from now on!

David was wonderful, got back to me promptly and squeezed me in last minute. Professional, creative, made everyone feel really comfortable. I appreciated his patience because events don’t always go exactly as planned! He was happy to take the lead and give us direction for shots, but also listened to what we envisioned and asked for and simply captured the moments. Photos are precious and worth every dime. Definitely recommend!

Ann Marie was incredible! She was an amazing photographer and even more so amazing at helping us navigate everything with Covid. We so appreciated her flexibility as we changed plans and how she helped us form the perfect day. She helped us plan the timeline of events, recommended vendors, and help us have the best stress-free day. I cannot recommend her enough! Our pictures turned out even better then we could have imagined. She is the best!

Natalie did an amazing job for our wedding! It was a small and intimate setting, and we hadn’t planned to have a photographer until the week before. As luck would have it, we found Natalie, she was available and we were able to have her “save” moments of our special day that, truly, will be treasured forever. Weddings, especially, have so much planning involved but once you are in it, it goes by on a blink of an eye and the day is over before you know. It’s a wonderful feeling to be able to look at her pictures and have time to reflect on the importance of the day and to be reminded of the love that was shared in those quickly passing moments. Natalie was warm, gracious and kind. It felt natural to have her as part of our wedding group and we have received nothing but compliments on the fruits of her labor. We plan to work with her again for family pictures in the future. We highly recommend her should you find yourself seeking the right person to preserve the memories of your special day/event!

SHOCKING HORROR! Sebastian got to our event right on time, had all his papers and tools in order, we were running behind with the preparations, but Sebastian got right to work taking pictures of everything HE thought mattered. He had all the perfect ideas and was everywhere we needed him... Or so it seemed. When I received the link to the online gallery, I was in complete shock and disbelief! I could not believe we had paid this nice man 3.5 hours @ $100 per hour to take a bunch of mediocre fotos of silly objects around our property such as perfectly focused and filtered pictures of drink dispensers and tealight lanterns, string lights, etc. When it came to pictures of people, they were off center, people's feet were cut off in ways that it looked like children had taken the pictures while having fun with a cell phone, the majority of the pictures of my daughter are cut off on the bottom and sides in awkward, random places, no filters, or even the initiative to ask others to move out of the picture, there are random people talking off to the side, even pictures he took from a lowered angle had the bottoms cut off and random people had only half of their body or faces in the pictures. This is a horrible, terrible, unprofessional, unacceptable work. I am mortified by what we received for the money we paid this sweet, smooth talking man. And now, my daughter's 15th birthday has been best captured by pictures on our guests cell phones without her ever even looking at the camera! Sebastian even took pictures of groups of my daughter's friends posed, looking off to an unseen camera! I am angered, hurt, disappointed altogether. When I asked him about all of my issues, he gave me a silly story about how this is modern photography that tells a story. And then decided not to even bother to offer any other explanation when I disagreed. This man is a complete and total impostor! Most average people can take the same or better quality photos with a modern day cell phone. 😢
