Your burning questions: answered

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.

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 hired John for my daughter’s first birthday party. He did a great job capturing smiling photos of our baby & guests!

Abbe helped us photograph my father's 60th birthday party at a restaurant in Philadelphia. Although the room was small, we are very tall people, and there was a funky layout of dining tables, Abbe handled everything very professionally. She also has a great sense of humor that kept the mood light and festive while we took all the necessary group photos. I definitely recommend Abbe as a photographer!

I truly enjoyed her services. She was very well on point with taken pictures and catching special moments as I was very busy attending to guess and didn't know what pictures she was taken for the most part, but as I looked around she was communicating with my family and friends as if she was a part of my family getting to know them and putting together groups of family and groups of friends, taking pictures of the cake and so much more. My guess was truly amazed with her kind, friendly spirited they talked about her for some time, it was if we had already know each other and I hired her from thumbtack not knowing what to expect but, I am so great full I choose the right person for my 50th birthday party, not only that I rehired her for my grandbabies first birthday party to take personal photo shots and they turned out just as beautiful as my pictures did from my 50th birthday party. Now only that my theme was leopard print and she did not know about the theme but she had on an leopard print dress now tell me it wasn't like she was a part of my family and I will tell you she fitted right in all the way from her spirit- her pictures- her communication with everyone - her outfit. Thank you so very much . hopefully sooner than later we can meet again for some private photo shots so I can give to my husband for his birthday present. Keep up the great work and remain personal and friendly towards others. C. Bell

Inna Ovespian was asked to photograph the birthday party of my 90-year old aunt and some 100 guests. We are every satisfied with the outcome. We asked her to take unposed pictures as well as more formal ones and she exceeded our expectations. She blended in well with the guests and made sure to take many pictures of my aunt. She provided us with an online address and when her pictures were displayed on my computer they were sharp and clear. We recommend her highly and would not hesitate to use her on any other occasion.
