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.

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.

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.

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.

Paul was a pleasure to work with. He was very responsive and communicative, and was very professional. His work is amazing. The photographs he took of my son and his wife’s wedding reception, as well as photos of the couple beforehand, were absolutely stunning. I highly recommend Paul for your event. Thank you, Paul, for your beautiful work.

He was very professional, great attention to detail, good communication. He listened to what we were wanting, planned and brought great ideas, he communicated with respect and overall great value on the whole experience. We were very happy with how the photos turned out and plan to call on him and his photography skills in future events.

Matt was everything I could have wanted in a photographer. His prices were reasonable, he was on time, professional, and most importantly he took fantastic shots! I hired him for a work engagement and all of my superiors were super impressed with the photos. He was able to get great staged group photos and more importantly some super fun action shots. He took a very chaotic event and turned it into wonderful and engaging shots. 10/10 would hire him again.
