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.

Mr. McKenzie was very professional throughout the entire event. He took his photo's without interference with guests. He was extremely respectful of space and guests privacy. Mr. McKenzie was clear in his explanation of how services will be delivered. He was willing to meet me weeks ahead of the event to see the venue and evaluate the ball room in order for him to be fully prepared the evening of the event. Mr. McKenzie was precise in his charged amount. There was no altering of charges or hidden prices revealed at the end of his services. I would highly recommend Mr. McKenzie for future events that we wish preserved in photos or in video. We are extremely pleased that we chose Mr. McKenzie to make our event memorable.

We really enjoyed working with Mark for our son’s birthday party. He did an outstanding job with the photos and provided them back to us within few days. I would definitely hire him for our next event and recommend him to friends and relatives.

We worked with Jeff for our son's 1st birthday party and could not be happier with his work and the resulting photos! Jeff took the time to chat with me before the party to understand what we were looking for, as well as to let us know how he typically approaches events like these. Jeff was very punctual on the day of the party and got right to work. He got so many wonderful shots of the decorations, the guests, and the smash cake - and did so in a very un-intrusive way! The different angles and lighting that he utilized really made the resulting portfolio unique and special. Also of note is that Jeff's pricing is extremely reasonable for the quality of work he does. I would highly recommend Jeff to anyone looking for photography services for these types of events.

We had an amazing experience with i do photography. They arrived very early and stayed late and clicked a lot of group pictures as well as candid pictures. It was very well edited. We forgot to tell them a few important moments to be captured..eventhough a lot of precious moments were well captured without us mentioning it. Overall, we are very happy with the pictures and the service provided. We will definetly consider them for future events.
