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.

Reviews for Houston event photographers
Moriah C.
The service was easy to book, the photographer arrived on time, and the photos came quickly after the event. However, I would say that the photographer provided for my event was a beginner and likely had not photographed a lot of events. The quality of the photos was ok for the price point, but I will consider more advanced options in the future.

Rich Productions did a great job taking photos for our corporate event with 500+ attendees. Rich was able to provide great photos given the short notice and little direction provided prior to the event. We definitely recommend Rich Productions!

We haven't received the photo's yet, but we were very happy with our event this weekend. He was on time, very responsive and professional and respectful. If you're on the fence, don't be. Hire RS Photography.

Daniel did an amazing job for our event, I would highly recommend him. I planned a cooperate event in Houston that had over 300 guests, and we needed a photographer on site. Not only was the communication between myself and Daniel easy, professional and prompt, but the services he provided made for an all-around great experience. While we received the quality photographers one would expect from any professional photographer, Daniels eye behind the camera created some amazing shots that brought out the character and atmosphere of our event, really blowing us away. Worth every penny! Whenever I plan another event in TX, i'll be reaching out to Daniel first.

When I put in a request for event photography on this portal, Raymond with R.S. Photography was quick to provide a quote that fit my budget. He then scheduled a phone call meeting to go over all the details of his photo package. I could not have been more pleased with his work. Every single photo captured the emotions of love & joy felt around the room. I felt as though I was reliving these memories through his photos. I will definitely be hiring him for future events & portraits & urge you to give him a shot. He will not disappoint. Thank you Raymond, you rock! -Mia & Marshall.

Job well done to Daniel on our wedding photos. They were rich in color, he covered everyone in the room well and captured the warmth, joy and moments of the event wonderfully. Our downtown event was beginning right as an Astros game was ending and he did a great job planning for road closures and traffic.
