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.

Stan was an excellent choice for our event. He communicated well, showed up to the event early and captured everything just how we wanted. He was very friendly to all of our guests. We would gladly use S2 Photography at future events for our organization.

Ben worked our event taking photos at the Rock 'N' Roll Marathon in Seattle for one of our marketing clients. He was extremely responsive and so easy to work with. At the event, he took incredible photos and immediately understood what we were looking for and hoping to achieve. He sent the photos back, retouched and beautiful, super quickly and we could not have been more pleased with the final results! Ben is amazing to work with, and I would definitely recommend him for any photographer needs.

Greg is a great guy and was extremely easy to work with; he responded quickly to emails and phone calls, as well as delivered high quality photos. He was Tesla STEM High School's prom photographer, and did an excellent job of capturing snapshots of moments throughout the night (e.g. throughout dinner, dancing, etc.) in addition to taking standard photo booth pictures. Although Greg was initially hired only as a photo booth photographer, he was kind and generous enough to take event photos as well for no extra charge! Upon receiving payment, he delivered the photos immediately. I have no complaints and am very glad to have had the chance to work with Greg. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who needs a photographer at an event, as he is very affordable and fun to work with.

Edward was an absolute joy to work with! As the Marketing & Events Coordinator for Seattle magazine, I work with a lot of vendors and Edward was by far the most professional and best communicator I've ever worked with. He photographed a client anniversary party and he captured the event perfectly. The photos exceeded my expectations - I had over 400 images to choose from! I would highly recommend Epilogue Photography and I am looking forward to working with Edward again!

I hired Jaquell for our gender reveal party and it was an amazing experience! Jaquell is an amazing photographer and easily understands what the customer wants. He gave us recommendations on which spots to click photos in and also helped a lot with our poses (and made them fun too)! His editing skills are pretty good too as he was able to edit the best photos from our event and make them look excellent. He also made a nice little video of our event. He was very friendly and very easy to work with -- my friends at the event loved talking to him :-) I highly recommend hiring Jaquell for any photography needs! I'll be hiring him again for sure!

Alex was a pleasure to work with. Prior to the event, he was responsive, organized, and easy to communicate with. On the day of the event, he was punctual, professional yet relaxed, respectful towards our guests, flexible, and knowledgeable. We could not have asked for a better experience with a photographer and highly recommend Alex!

Tommy was absolutely fabulous to work with! He did a photo shoot of me doing a live painting demonstration at Savoir Fair event at Gray Sky Gallery in Seattle. He was very professional, took lots of excellent photos, while being mindful of the best lighting and provided samples and finals of the photos quickly. I can’t wait to work with Tommy on another project!

Katrina is an absolute pleasure to work with! She photographed a large event for my organization and the photos were great. She's flexible, goes with the flow (and we definitely gave her some waves!), and stays professional above it all. She's even available and friendly weeks after the event! My staff really enjoyed working with her and I can't wait til we go back to Seattle so we can have her come out again!

I hired Katrina to shoot photos for a birthday party and was very pleased with the result. She was on time, professional and very responsive to feedback/direction on the types of pictures I wanted. The pictures turned out great and I now have a wonderful catalog of photos that will allow me and my family to remember the event for years to come. I highly recommend Katrina. Bradley L.

Timothy was great to work with. He set up an initial meeting to understand what we want out of the photo shoot. He reached the venue ahead of time for the event, and captured some beautiful memories. He also gave us all the raw images, in addition to a very good collection of post-processed pictures. I would definitely contact Timothy again for future photo shoots.

Will was amazing! He was punctual, friendly, sensitive to guests with special requests (we had some difficult guest at our wedding), helpful in so many more ways than just taking photos! He even let us share his Uber! We will definitely use him again for family photos, and/ or another special event. We will also recommend him to our friends and colleagues. Angie & Jesse Woldman

Natalie photographed my parents' 50th wedding anniversary party. I shopped around and she had by far the best price for what we were looking for. She was very responsive and timely with all my questions in advance, and she arrived promptly the night of the event. She was very unobtrusive during the party and got a bunch of fantastic candids of the guests, including the dancing and conversations, as well as some nice shots of the decor, food and venue. I wish there had been a few more "posed" shots of my parents and various friends and family member groupings, but she did advise me in advance that she doesn't really do that style of photography. She sent me a full gallery of photos that we can share and download less than a week after the event. Overall we were very happy with Natalie and her work, and I'd recommend her to others who are looking for an inexpensive but professional photographer to document their special occasion.
