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.

We hired Grayson for our engagement and wedding photos. The engagement photos, and the teaser photos for our wedding so far are great (event was only 3 days before writing this review)!

Do not change the booked photographer more than once, be more "candid" about which photographer is actually going to be booked for the event, advertise honestly on your websites, and just take good photos. The images we received from Candidly were poorer than those taken by guests attending our event. See image below for an example of Candidly's quality: bad angles, poorly focused, and harsh lighting.

Stephen was easy and fun to work with; he was very open to questions and he was wonderfully responsive. He also sent a sample of photos the day after the event which was lovely. And the photos were amazing, of course. 10/10 do recommend.

We hired John to shoot for our new store opening. He's an extremely talented photographer and was perfect for our event. His artistic eye meant our photos were remarkable and non-traditional but high quality. He worked well with people to get both candids and posed photos. Our team was amazed. Would definitely hire him again.

Canceled on me within a few hours of our event of over 200+ people after discussing all details and pricing. Very unprofessional and disappoint. Do not recommend as a reliable or quality photographer

HOS did a wonderful job capturing photos and videos of my company's big event in March 2015. They were diligent, worked tirelessly for 3 days and took great photos. The entire team and attendees all remarked on what a pleasure they were to work with. I'd hire them again in a minute.

Randy and Jackie were incredible to work with! They truly care about being as flexible as possible to meet their clients' needs. Anything we asked for they graciously obliged. They photographed our large event and it was nearly impossible to go into a room without seeing one of them capturing all of the best moments of the weekend. Not only did they work tirelessly at capturing moments throughout the event, but they continue to diligently work to select and edit photos. We are more than pleased with their work - thank you Randy and Jackie!

I’ve never had such a good experience working with a photographer! Kate was super professional but also made it really easy for my husband and I to relax, because were naturally super awkward. I highly recommend using her for your special events, you will fall in love with your photos!

We could not have selected a better photographer for our series of events in Austin. Vincent was great to work with, capturing all shots within our shot list (and more), perfectly capturing the essence of our events - from the branded shots to the candid ones. Highly recommend Vincent and looking forward to the next opportunity with him.

Gonzalo is amazing! He accommodated to travel and worked with our budget. We had a simple court ceremony and although the weather was a bit wet, Gonzalo kept our spirits up! He is very artistic so we were able to get various shots in a few locations. Gonzalo is always promt to reply to any questions which helps ease the stress of planning any event. Id definitely recommend Gonzalo to photograph your next event, big or small! Thanks Gonzalo! The photos came out great!

Sierra is an absolute pro to work with! She was incredibly responsive and offered her expertise in helping us plan and capture a surprise proposal at a graduation party. She made everyone at the party at ease in front of the camera. She captured the most beautiful photos of the proposal and the happy couple, as well as photos of all the guests. She provided us with a few photos right after the proposal so the couple could announce the news, and the remainder of the photos she delivered quickly thereafter! Sierra is kind, professional, and extremely talented - I would recommend her without hesitation to photograph your event!

I hired Bob Dunlap Photography for my birthday party. It was one of the BEST decisions I made. I wanted pretty photos to remember the event, and for ALL my friends to be in them (vs. having friends rotate to take the pictures). Bob is professional, friendly & immensely talented, immediately putting everyone at ease. Everyone LOVED the photo shoot and now LOVE the photos ("everyone" is 8 women - so that's high praise)! I HIGHLY recommend Bob and will MOST DEFINITELY hire him again!
