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.

We needed a photographer for our event and found John on Thumbtack and he was excellent. He was an effective communicator in advance of the event, arrived early the night of the party and took great photos, and his rate was very fair. Definitely recommended.
Justin S.
Just what we needed. Great price and great photos to remember our event.

DeeDee was simply fantastic to work with. We had a 3 day event in San Antonio and DeeDee was not only able to work with our budget, she provided excellent coverage of the event as well. Both before and during the event, DeeDee asked questions and ensured that she had a thorough understanding of what we needed and wanted for photos from the event. As a result she delivered (early!) exactly what we were looking for. Her photos are spot on and excellent! She was professional and polite in interacting with our attendees. Really could not be happier with our photos and the overall experience! Highly recommend working with DeeDee and Silver Art Photography!

Silver Art Photography is an outstanding business. You can do no better than selecting them to photograph your event. Working with DeeDee Silver was a genuine pleasure. She and her assistant were very cordial and accommodating during our events, and gave us the professionalism, responsiveness and work quality that we desired. They were very punctual and the value of the final product was well worth the price. We were very pleased with the quality of the photos that we received. I highly recommend them to anyone for your events.

Corporate photography event. Mr. Aleman was professional, on time, and worked independently. A slide show of the days events was created for our attendees to view during the same day dinner and the dinner award pictures were sent to us within 4 days, exactly what was promised. Thank you, Alex.

John was a great partner to photograph my client's event. I recieved the great feedback below from my client and will definitely book John again when I need a photographer in San Antonio! “Knowing traffic was an issue, he arrived on site earlier than requested which gave us ample amount of time to walk him through everything. Also, he successfully captured all shots we requested even with the challenge of having to cover three different areas at the venue. Lastly, we received all the photos within hours after the completion of our event, as requested.”

ABSOLUTELY STUNNING PHOTOS! I highly recommend Jarrah for any event photography! When we received our wedding pictures, it made us cry again, because it took us back to that beautiful moment! Jarrah was excellent with communication throughout the entire planning, and asked what specific things we were needing from her as a photographer. I am so so incredibly happy with everything! Thank you Jarrah!! ❤️

In short, Alexander was amazing. We spoke briefly about the rationale behind the hire, the budget, and needs. At the events (there were three separate but related events), he took photos and I had select shots to use that day to use and promote our nonprofit. Alexander has a knack of capturing beautiful candid shots that were the essence of the events and all of the posed shots were of course high quality that the Foundation and many people will be able to use repeatably. He is professional, reliable and produces amazing work. Best of all, we could afford him to document these events! Thank you Alexander!

FIlmPix was so patient with me on my wedding day. I was running late and he took wonderful photos of the wedding venue without being prompted to. He also took beautiful photos of the details of the church while waiting for things to start. He directed us to pose and knew what to do in a very short amount of time. Excellent photo quality indoors and outdoors. Feel at ease booking this company for any event!

Top-to-bottom great experience with Nitro. I waited until the day before our event to reach out to a photographer, but Nitro were absolutely willing to accommodate the tight request. Adnan was super responsive, and he kindly answered all of my many, many questions. Payment process was very simple and straightforward. Team who came to work the event were very engaged and enthusiastic. And most importantly, the photos turned out fantastic! We fully intend on using Nitro again in the future. Thank y’all so much, guys! - Master Move Dance & Fitness
