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.

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.

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.

I had a small wedding where I only had a photographer for the wedding ceremony and she was amazing! She got all the photos I wanted and even added her own creativity to the photos to give us some amazing shots that I didn't even know I wanted until I saw it. She was amazing! I highly recommend her for any of your events!!

Akash was very professional and prepared for our event. He came early to meet with us, understand our expectations. He patiently explained his process, equipment, and style very thoroughly. The day of the event, Akash arrived early and took care of all our needs. We were very impressed with his photos, which he delivered to us within a few days. We would highly recommend!

Garrett did an excellent job photographing my in-laws' 50th Wedding Anniversary Party. He was responsive throughout the entire process and answered my questions throughout the preparation for the event. He went the extra mile in all aspects of his work, and we were thrilled with the results to share with our family.

Ricky is great to work with. He responds to messages pretty quickly and takes the time to reach out before the events to discuss details. With a couple of my other vendors, I was reaching out multiple times to get questions answered and impatiently awaiting responses so it was great that Ricky was always reaching out to me first before our sessions, shows commitment to doing the project well. He is punctual and was very gracious when we were late for both our bridal portraits and wedding morning pictures. I was apprehensive about choosing a photographer online but since I was getting married out of state, I had to find all my vendors online. I chose Ricky because of his great reviews, online portfolio, and unbeatable price. One of the things that stood out in his reviews was that he makes people feel comfortable and this was definitely true, I could tell my husband was more relaxed during our sessions with Ricky than during our proposal photo shoot. My bridal party consisted of 4 toddlers so it was not easy to get everyone situated for proper photos and Ricky showed a lot of patience and even gave one of the apprehensive flower girls the nudge she needed to walk down the aisle.
