Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Lyly was an outstanding photographer to work with! My company partnered with Lyly for a national launch event in the Dallas/Fort Worth/Irving area. Lyly was incredibly responsive and helpful in all of the communications leading up to the event. She arrived earlier than even expected, was incredibly professional and thorough, and most importantly, her photos were unbelievable. She captured so much energy, smiles, and candid moments and did so in a beautifully artistic way. I would highly recommend Lyly and would love to work with her again in the future for a corporate event.

Imagine the mood of an event when air conditioner failed on hottest day of the summer, but the photos were amazing and did not reflect any of it. KKR was responsive, punctual and was patient when taking pictures of my little one. I would hire him again for any professional photography.

Mis communication between candidly and associate. I had to reach out to candidly to ask what my photographer was asking me and why she was completely confused. This was my first time using the thumbtack app so I myself was a little confused. My photographer was asking for a payment but candidly already charged me. Wasn't aware my photographer had an "assistant" that didn't help do anything just walked around my event talking to my guest. I am still waiting on candidly to get back with me about my photographer not arriving and leaving at the time I requested. She showed up 30 mins before my event and left early supposedly she said candidly double booked her again I inquired about this to candidly on Saturday and today is Tuesday and haven't heard anything from candidly but "stay tuned" photos were not of photography quality.i had to crop all my photos because my "photographer" didn't focus on the background and didn't now how to use the zoom on her SLR. This was not money well spent. Ver disappointed of the photos and service I received!!

Very professional! Highly recommend! He knows what he is doing with photography! He covered our baby-shower in a large auditorium and he didn’t miss a corner. If he has availability, I would definitely consider hiring him for your next event!

Sourav is the photographer you didn’t know you needed! From the moment we booked the appointment, to taking the pictures and finally receiving them, he made everything so simple. He takes exceptional shots that capture the essence of the event! He did a very good job at our baby shower and captured all the moments. I were very shy but he directed me on how to pose and made me feel comfortable. We are planning to hire him for all our future events. Highly recommended!!

Working with Nazim at Friday Photos was a true pleasure. It started when I found him on Thumbtack about 5 days before our wedding. The fact that he made himself available on such short notice, was a life (or should I say marriage) saver! When I met him at the event, I was completely taken with his kind face and smile. He was quietly involved in all the important aspects of our ceremony. Lastly, the pictures were lovely. Beautiful. But what completely moved my husband and I was the video Nazim created from the photos. It had our favorite songs and it was just amazing. When we received the video, we watched it twice (my husband's request). After watching it, I said to my husband 'What do you want to watch on TV now?'. He smiled and said, "Nothing, I want to end my night with that lovely video he sent us'. That sums it up. We will be using Friday Photos again for a family photo shoot we have planned for the Spring.

Bobby was amazing! He did photography and Videography for my son and his cousin’s graduation party and we are so happy with our photos and videos. It was an outdoor party (in the Texas heat) and he was composed and captured every moment. He took and edited way more photos than any photographer I’ve worked with and had a second person on his team to assist. One of the coolest things he did was choreograph the confetti cannons. I purchased about 20 confetti cannons and had a half-baked plan of just having the teenagers go out on the lawn and pop them. Bobby took charge thankfully and coordinated the guests to stand on each side of the graduates and have the DJ do a countdown, and had the graduates walk through the confetti as it was in the air. The pictures are amazing and everyone was talking about how cool it was to end the night in such a fun way. I was so tired at this point I wouldn’t never thought to coordinate all this, and was so grateful that he took initiative. I will absolutely reach out to Bobby again for future events!
