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.

Charles photographed our store grand opening event recently. He was on-time, professional and every photo he took was online the next day and usable. I'd highly recommend Charles for any event or occassion. Shannon Alexander Sr. Marketing Administrator Chuck E. Cheese's

In the past I’ve had a hard time finding a photographer that communicates well, provides quality content and gives a clear timeline on when I can expect photos back (and actually sticks to it). I was starting to think it wasn’t possible - until I found BW Productions. We had a last minute need for a corporate event after another photographer dropped out (see my “hard time” above), and Brent from BW Productions responded quickly and kindly. His team moved fast, asked great questions and arrived early to the event. I can’t tell you how much this put my mind at ease as I was taking care of other things in running the event. The best part was that I received the edited photos the morning after the event - I was SHOCKED! In less than 24 hrs I had amazing photos that I could share with our team and our social media channels. I can’t thank Brent, Stephanie and BW Productions enough. I will 100% work with them again.

Charles not only has a great photographic eye; he's a consummate professional. He is able to grasp your creative vision and bring it to life with minimal direction and oversight. He also has an innate ability to capture those candid moments and interpersonal interactions at your event that bring personality to the final product. I highly recommend Really Photography and Charles and would definitely hire him again to document my next corporate event.

Shauna was the highlight of the corporate event. She took excellent photographs and our customer absolutely loved her. Her shots were even used by a local news station. I highly recommend her for her wonderful photos, great personality and the value you get for your dollar.

Brent and the team at BW Productions were fantastic to work with. Events are stressful and I loved not having to worry about what our photographer was doing or if they would get the shots I requested. Brent’s communication before the event about what our needs and wants were made me feel totally at ease. Stephanie, the photographer, showed up early, was very personable, and did such a great job working with our executives. The cherry on top was getting our photos the next morning. The quality was amazing and they shot exactly what I wanted captured. I will certainly use them in the future.

We loved working with Kevin. While there are many great things, I think my favorite aspect was how much he cared to understand what we wanted out of our event photos and worked to really get the proper vibe to help accomplish our goals. I also loved that he based pricing off our event and goals v. hours. This was a different setup than I had ever worked with before, but it ended up being fantastic. Because of that, he took the time to really understand the project, read the room and get the right photos without rushing due to being on more of an hourly setup. It also relieved the stress on my side as I was able to let him get a good understanding of the space and our hopes from the photos and accomplish it, instead of ever wondering why he wasn't frantically taking photos to maximize my hours. In the end, we ended up with great shots and a wonderful experience. Kevin also has a calm energy to have in your event, which is really appreciated as he fits in nicely, allowing people to be comfortable and just enjoying their event. Thank you, Kevin! We will certainly reach out if we ever have more photography needs!

Shauna was outstanding, very accommodating to our needs. She had the pictures printed right there during the event so there was no wait or hassle! We got to pick out of a few photos what we wanted. She is sweet, had a great personality and so easy to work with. I plan to use her for my maternity photos in the near future!!

Throughout the whole process, Shauna was terrific. She captured the aesthetic of our brand and truly brought out what we covet in our event photos to visually depict what our networking series is all about. She responds quickly, provides great value, is easy to work with, and even more importantly - takes terrific photos! I highly recommend!

It was a pleasure to work with Shauna. The photos were exactly what we asked for. She was prompt, professional, and gave everyone at our event a very good experience. Her fees were reasonable and the transaction was easy. We had a little miscommunication about delivery of the finished files which was a few days later than we had hoped. Shauna responded quickly when prompted and we got access as requested. We would work with Shauna again for any photography needed in SLC.
