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.

Do you tip a photographer for family photos?

Tipping a photographer for family portraits is not standard etiquette. A great way to recognize a family photographer who goes above and beyond is to write them a glowing review. You probably found your photographer by reading online reviews, so paying it forward by letting everyone know how much you appreciate their work is a great gift. Write your review after they have delivered the final edited photos on time and you’ve confirmed that you’re happy with the terrific portraits they took.

How much does a baby photography cost?

Portrait photography provides parents with lasting images of the first whirlwind months of a newborn’s life. The cost varies based on several factors, including the length and location of the session, the number of photos provided, and the amount of editing and retouching the photographer does. The national average cost for baby photos is $150-$200. Some baby photographers charge by the number of photos provided, typically ranging from an average of $299 for 20 high-resolution edited photos, to an average of $399 for 35 photos, to $499 for all of the images taken in a single session. Props and location affect the cost, too; an elaborate studio shoot with props and professional lighting may increase the cost to $600-$700 for 20-50 photos. Adding a second location or asking the photographer to travel can add $70-$250 to the cost of the session. Photographers may also charge extra fees for providing additional photos and DVDs, scheduling weekend sessions, and shooting siblings. Expect to pay at least a $50 deposit when you book a portrait photography session.

Where is the best place to take baby pictures?

Baby pictures are among the most popular types of portrait photography, and most newborn photographers are well versed in the best places to take baby pictures in their local areas. Some newborn photographers will come to the hospital to shoot the baby within a day or two of birth, while others have set up their studios to accommodate the needs of infants. Some parents prefer to have the newborn photographer come to their home or travel to a favorite park or other outdoor location. Like any portrait photography, the best place to take baby pictures is the place you like best and that will yield the types of photos you want of your baby, whether that’s posed and carefully lit studio portraits or spontaneous, casual photos at home. Work with a local newborn photographer to find a safe, calm location with great lighting and some privacy for your family.

When should you take newborn photos?

Few styles of portrait photography are as tricky as newborn photos — the unpredictable infant is always in charge! The best way to ensure a successful photo shoot is to work with a local newborn photographer within the first two weeks of the baby’s life. Some photographers even work with hospitals to offer newborn sessions within a day of the baby’s birth. But newborn photographers usually recommend scheduling a shoot during the baby’s first two weeks of life, while the baby is still sleepy and relatively cooperative, especially for posed or studio shots. During this time, babies are easier to swaddle in blankets and dress in hats or headbands, and, because they often nap or nurse, can be staged with various props or be cuddled by their parents. For casual photos, most newborn photographers recommend shooting within the first six weeks of a baby’s life. Lifestyle portrait photography is more flexible and doesn’t require the baby to cooperate with multiple poses or props.

My experience with Royal Line Photography was AHHHHMAZING! It was professional, fun, and the quality of their work is the best by far. As a fashion designer I've worked with quite a few photographers and NEVER have even the raw photos looked so good! Extremely pleased!

Working in our national HQ in Boston I needed to find a photographer for a corporate meeting in the DFW area. We contracted Lyly based on her portfolio and responsiveness initially. Every one of the 17 people photographed (includeding 6 executives) were very happy and impressed with both her professionalism and quality of her photographs! Many of us have had corporate pictures taken in the past with other photographers, but every person agreed – Lyly was the BEST! We/I overwhelmingly recommend her. Her professionalism, quality of work and value can’t be beat! We will definitely utilize her services again!!

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.

I needed professional photos to complete a bio as a board member of a charitable organization. Billie had the requisite experience and did an outstanding job with both the photographic quality and her advice on how to achieve the best shots. The photos could only have been better with a more photogenic subject. I am sure she could do wonders touching up blemishes and skin tones had I asked her to do that type of thing.

Michael Campbell is very pleasant and professional - the photos look great. The portrait shots went perfectly, and the outside shot with blank space will be just right to drop in our publication. THANKS!

If you are looking for a photographer, look no further. Ethan is one of a kind. From the moment I first contacted him on thumbtack he saw very kind and responsive. He picked the perfect location for us based on what I had in mind and also was very flexible. He met us on time and was so friendly and professional the whole time. He was patient with our family and was able to capture the most beautiful photos. I cannot rave enough about Ethan!! We will definitely be using him again for all our photography needs!

This was our first project through thumbtack and we hoped we found good good app to start on first project, but we are very disappointed with Nazim. It was our daughter first bday and we can hardly say we have perfect picture of our daughter bday, final photos were not professional at all. He edited only few photos of my family and guest photo and rest he said he cannot do and just provided the RAW images. He agreed on particular date and he postponed those dates twice and ended up waiting for 40 to 50 days to get those photos. That wait was even more disappointed . Will never hire Nazim again.

Omar is truly a skilled and professional photographer. I knew with our first interaction he was a going to be a keeper. He is responsive, understands the technical aspects of his craft, and has a creative vision for your needs. The photo session was a wonderful experience. He made it work for me. The pictures turned out great!! I highly recommend him for anyone who needs to have headshots. Bottom line: He delivered quality work on short notice.

Thank you Eileen and Howard for such a wonderful wedding pictures! Eileen and Howard helped us find a perfect place for a photo shoot which we absolutely loved. Eileen was a true professional in photography helping us with the poses and spent ample time so we ended up with three hundred pictures. In addition they created a video with our favorite song... We absolutely recommend Eileen to everyone. We are confident some of the more expensive photographers cannot do what Eileen and Howard did for us as they have so much enthusiasm about their work and put so much energy the outcome was as close to perfection as one may expect.

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!

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.

Natalie was thoroughly professional throughout this assignment. From being very prompt to our queries, to showing up at precisely the appointment time, to her patience in dealing with 2 rambunctious 9 month old boys and finally to the quality of the actual photos, we were delighted with the service. To top it all, very reasonably priced.
