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.

Heather did an excellent job taking photos of our corporate event last week at the Van Zandt! She also took headshots of our clients. I was impressed with the quality of her photos as well as her calm, professional, and friendly demeanor. She was a pleasure to work with pre-event and on-site. I would highly recommend working with Heather for your next event in Austin!

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.

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

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.

Hanna is an exceptionally talented photographer. Not only did she show up with the right equipment and skill-set, but she really jelled with the energy of our event, and captured the peak moments. She practically became a part of the event, while still going unnoticed. The combination of still-shot photography, capturing b-roll, and also recording video testimonials was well delivered. Her demeanor is very amenable, capable, and positively effervescent. I really look forward to working with her again on future projects.

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!

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!

From the moment I posted my request, Paul was extremely timely in his responses. He provided me with all the information I requested, was timely and professional during our entire event. He sent me the photos less than 48 hours after our event, which was amazing! We would definitely hire him again the next time we are in Austin.
