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.

Reviews for Lakewood event photographers
Carol M.
I contacted Agphotography after the company I paid to provide all services for my 3 day event informed me they would be late 3 hours before the surprise party was to start. Having had a great conversation with Anthony during my time of looking for vendors, I found his number and told him about my sudden, unexpected dilemma. Well, thankfully, he did not have another photo job at the time, so he was able to step in and help me out. If only I had picked him from the start!!! ( why didn't I you may be wondering..I thought it would be best and easier for me to find a company that was able to provide all services I needed. photo booth- videography, and photography-) . Anthony DID an awesome job, and made a great impression on my guest in the 1 hour he was there. My family and friends were disappointed when I had to inform them that he was not the 3 day event photographer; I want you to know that he provided me with 79 beautiful photos( the next day) and, again, he was only at my event for about an hour. Sadly, due to my original hired company's lateness, we were not able to capture the beginning moments on the professional video as I had hoped for and paid for, but thanks to Anthony, we captured wonderful moments in pictures, and for that ,I am grateful!!
