Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.

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.

John was hired to capture live photos for a 300-person client event my company was having at Acme Feed & Seed in Downtown Nashville, John took amazing photos of the food, band, and also captured great candids of our guests dancing and mingling. In addition, John perfectly executed step-and-repeat photos for all of our guests. He also provided onsite prints for our guests to take their photos home! Following the event, John provided prompt delivery of all photo files that were masterfully edited. John was courteous, timely, efficient and went above and beyond for a more than fair price! I highly recommend him for any event you have! Thanks again, John - you were AMAZING!

I am grateful I found Christine for my fiancé’s 50th birthday party in Nashville. Honestly, without her I don’t believe I would have been able to capture all the memories from the event. Christine captured great candid photos and they turned out better than my expectations. I would highly recommend her to anyone in need of a photographer for their event!

Tony is AMAZING!! Not only is he a very talented photographer but he is extremely friendly and professional. We hired Tony to take event photos for our 200 person conference as well as for some company headshots. He was very flexible with our wants/needs and had a super quick turn around for photos. Highly recommend!!

Celebration Studios provided professional photography for our vow renewal ceremony. Maintaining communication was a breeze leading up to the event. The final photos were absolutely wonderful and delivered ahead of schedule. We received great photos that didn't cost an arm and a leg but you can't tell from the final product. Our photographer was great to work with. Would definitely recommend and use again.

In planning an event for 12 women that love fashion and photography it was essential we had a photographer to help us capture the moments. 12 women in one house with 2 bathrooms all running late and trying to be glam was a challenge. Tami handled it with such ease and patience. She arrived on schedule, even as we kept the schedule fluid. She was so friendly and just melded into our group. She came ready with suggestions, but nothing was overly posed for our group which is what we wanted. She shared the same energy and excitement with all of us so it showed in our pictures we were having a blast and she captured the fun and spirit of the day even in the unexpected cold temperatures. We received our photos back so quickly. She edited the individual photos for each guest within a day or two so we had this great photo to remember our trip and quickly got us photos from our group shots. The photos were vibrant and clear, and really high quality artistic photography. She was an absolute doll to work with and we would love for her to come to our next outing and do photos. Highly recommend her to anyone that is looking for photography family, wedding, engagement, corporate event!

Jeremy is one of the best photographers I've worked with and I would gladly use him again. From start to finish he made the process easy -- great communication, very responsive, quick turnaround, and the quality of the photos exceeded our already high expectations. A wide variety of angles and shots and fantastic candids that really captured the energy of the event.

Tony shot our corporate event at Nashville's Hutton hotel and our experience with him was great. His photos were excellent and he uploaded them to a website for download the same day as he took them. He also at less than a day's notice set up a head shot studio and took head shots for 21 staff members. Great experience having Tony shoot our event.

Mackenzie was amazing to work with for my daughter’s prom photos. She answered all my questions, emailed and texted frequently, which was assuring leading up to the event date. She was flexible with our last-minute crisis. We went to the pedestrian bridge. She had fun with the kids and knew several different angles and locations to get good pictures at. I absolutely loved working with her!

If I could give Billy 100 stars, I would! Billy did an excellent job with our photos for the Kukyala ceremony. They are amazing! My husband and I live in Oregon and this was a last minute request for our Kukyala ceremony in Nashville, TN and he was able to accommodate us on such short notice. He was always quick to respond to all my messages and answered any questions in great detail. Before the event, he took the time to learn more about our culture and he captured all important moments during the ceremony. He was punctual, kind, personable, friendly and stayed for the entire ceremony. He was even gracious to accept our offer to share a meal with us at the end of the ceremony. Our family will forever cherish the beautiful memories that he captured. I hirely recommend Djedi Photography and our family will definitely hire Billy again. If you are looking for an amazing photographer that takes amazing photos, choose Billy! Webale nnyo Billy!

Our photographer was extremely professional in his demeanor and within his work. He knew what he was doing and gives you the best quality photos at an extremely reasonable price. He’s ON time to your ceremony, and ready to go to work immediately. When he arrives, he quickly adapts to his surroundings and offers a fully detailed plan. He is open to any and all special requests within the shots he takes or is about to take. He embraces the hosts involvement and desires comfortably, confidence, and trust in him that the pictures will come out perfect. He also offers opinions as to what backdrops would pop and be the best scenario. During the ceremony, he moves quietly and swiftly. He doesn’t just take pictures; He captures the moment as they’re happening. True professional and recommended for anyone’s upcoming events.
