Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Reviews for Norfolk event photographers

I loved having Storm as my photographer for such an important event as my commissioning! I was surprised to find someone on such short notice and was extremely pleased with quick responses and genuine eagerness to photograph my event. Storm is friendly, professional, and makes being photographed feel more comfortable. If I have another need for a photographer in the area, I would make the same choice all over again!

Alysa was very accommodating and talented photographer. She and her husband were very generous with their time and clicked memorable photographs. If we have another event, we will hire them again without a second thought!

Absolutely wonderful quality candid shots. It was awesome to sit back and enjoy an event and have someone else capture those moments instead of spending the entire event taking phone photos of everyone. I can’t stop looking at the pictures. Thank you so much for capturing the beauty of the evening.

Parker covered our Annual Convention, a 3 day event. Absolutely the best photographer I've ever had the pleasure to work with. He is professional, courteous, and truly took the time to understand exactly what type of shots we needed. Then, he provided exactly what we asked for. His photos are impeccable, capturing unexpected moments perfectly. I really cannot say enough wonderful things about my experience working with Parker. If you are in need of a professional and highly skilled photographer, you will not be disappointed in Parker. I plan to use him again at future events.

Dennis is exactly what you want in a photographer. He asked permission first, then he was everywhere! Quality photos from multiple angles making my retirement ceremony and party, two events that will never be forgotten. Professional and respectful. He was kind to everyone. Multiple guests commented on how comfortable they were with him.He even walked my parents to their car on the way out. We got an amazing deal with his beyond fair price and expert craftsmanship! We want him at every event worth remembering!
