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.

I recently had a speaking engagement in Charleston and Matt photographed it. He was ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE! Incredibly responsive to the initial request, very prompt day of the event, took AMAZING photos after I gave him direction on the types of shots I was looking for, and turned around very HIGH QUALITY images in a matter of days. Would DEFINITELY recommend Matt to anyone looking for a highly professional and talented event photographer!

I cannot say enough good things about working with Victor Billups photography. He provided his services for a corporate event in Charleston. We found him at the last minute, but he and his assistant were there promptly with equipment to spare. The photos he provided were beautiful and professional. He is definitely someone you can trust with your important event.

Jeff recently shot my organization's 25th Annual Meeting in Charleston, SC. There were close to 500 guests in attendance and the event spanned over the course of three days. Jeff shot for a total of ~30 hours in three days, and the resulting photos were really great! Photos consisted primarily of speakers/ presenters, staged group photos, and candid shots of attendees networking and socializing. Jeff is very through and attentive, beginning with the initial consultation phone call all the way to post production and photo delivery. On-site, Jeff was very friendly and outgoing with both my staff and the event attendees. It was a pleasure to work with Jeff, as he made the process very easy!

Ramsey was my photographer for my wedding in April. She was so wonderful to work with and made me feel beyond confident in front of the camera. She had an eye for great pictures and made it so fun for my husband and I. I would definitely recommend choosing her to photograph any event!!

We were extremely happy to find Michel after and extensive search for a photographer. From the start of the interview, we knew we had found the photographer we wanted to use. He was very professional and thorough on explaining what he was going to provide for us. Michel was great at guiding and coaching us through all of the photos. He artistic talent’s captured all of the joy and emotions of this day. Our entire wedding party and guests all commented on his performance and the job he did. We will use him again in the future for other events and highly recommend him if you really want to capture the excitement and feelings of your event.

Jeff was great. He was extremely professional, friendly, and was everywhere we needed him to be without asking. I would definitely recommend him for any organizational event in the area (as well as any other type of photography needs.)

Eric was a delight to work with. From the first point of contact, he was present and patient. He arrived early to our event and got to work right away. He checked in with me to make sure we satisfied with his services, midway through, and our picture was ready within 48 hrs after our event. I recommend hiring Eric Glenn Photography for your image capturing needs.

I am an event coordinator with a financial service company in Charlotte, NC called Independent Advisor Alliance. We chose Michel at King Street to photograph our annual conference in Charleston, SC. and he did an excellent job, was on time, professional and his equipment was the most advance and of highest quality. As an event coordinator the vendor can make or break you and Michel made me look like a superstar for choosing the him to do this job. I highly recommend Michel for your event.

We booked Matt for my sisters bachelorette weekend and he is AMAZING!!! He was very responsive to my messages and made sure he had a clear vision of what we wanted. We decided to go to Rainbow Row and then Matt gladly guided us to a few more beautiful spots nearby. He’s very knowledgeable about the area and also gave us good ideas while we were posing all together! Needless to say, I would highly recommend him for any type of photo shoot and I will absolutely book him again if he’s available for the next event I attend. Thank you again, Matt! We LOVE our photos!

This was my very first time using the thumbtack service. I was in search of a photographer and other services in the Charleston area for an event that I was planning and decided to use this platform. Victor was the first to respond. When I spoke with him, he was very personable and made me feel comfortable. When I shared my theme, he became very excited and I knew he would capture the perfect moments. His pricing also fit within my budget. Although we had to cancel our event in Charleston due to the corona virus, I did not know what to expect, but he was understanding and still very accommodating! He was even thinking of ways he could still provide services in GA because he was truly in sync with our theme. That is why I am giving him 5 stars even though I did not have the opportunity to meet him or utilize his services!

Bottom Line: Anyone would be VERY LUCKY to have Victor as their wedding photographer. He says his bride's are his first priority and it is true! I live in St. Louis and hoped to find a great photographer for my wedding on Folly Beach. Through Thumbtack, I found Victor and we talked on the phone. I could tell right away that he would be a great fit for my [now] husband and me. I had no idea just how amazing Victor would be. He went WAY above and beyond to help me/us have a very special experience. He was far more than our photographer. He helped me find a hairdresser to come to her shop on her day off to do my hair and makeup and he showed up at the salon to take pictures during that time. His presence, and that of his wife Kim, at our very special event was unobtrusive yet so supportive. After the wedding, he took more shots on the beach. He and Kim had been such special participants in our special day that we asked if we could have pictures with them, which my son took with Victor's super fancy camera. We came back to St. Louis and had our Wedding Reception 12 days after our wedding. I requested that Victor, if possible, provide us our pictures and his video before that day so we could share it with our family. He stayed up into the night getting the video done in time. The video was so touching that it brought tears to the eyes of anyone who watched it. We watch it and show it to our friends quite often. Victor is a very good person. He has a generous heart. He is an artist of many forms. His photography made me look like a model. I could never be able to thank him enough for all he did for me.
