Your burning questions: answered

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.

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.

Dennis did an awesome job of photographing our company holiday party. He provided a photobooth backdrop and guests received photo strips at the event. We also received availability to the those photos as well as event photos for prints. Dennis was very active all evening taking great photos of our venue, food stations, gifts, and candids of the guests visiting and dancing, yet not being "in the way" as some photograhers can be. Our event was Saturday evening and by Monday we had access to all of our photos. We will definitely look to Dennis in the future for our social and corporate photographic needs!

Working with Prairie was great! She was reliable and took great photos of our fundraising event with very little instruction/direction from us.

HE Photographic was great to work with. We have a complex event with a lot of moving parts. They jumped right in, got behind the scenes and captured the essence, the fun and the movement of our Gala. They were friendly, yet unobtrusive. Great work and great photos! Really happy we found them...

Anthony did event photography for us. He brought experience doing 5K photography, and took great and clear shots of our participants running and walking, as well as those doing yoga and zumba. He also took shots of people milling around and during the awards ceremony. He was easy to work with and I would definitely recommend him.

Jeff was so great to work with - made everything very easy and was very quick to turn around images from our corporate event on that Saturday and provided the images to me the following Monday for my recap. Very responsive and great quality photos!

Max captured some important emotional moments from our auction beautifully. The photos of guests and the overall event are wonderful and we received them within 48 hours! He managed to weave seamlessly in and out of the crowd. Very happy we hired Max.

Max did a wonderful job photographing our wedding! From the wedding party getting ready to our exit, he was there capturing all the events. He had great ideas for our portrait locations after all the family pictures had been taken and was also willing to change rapidly due to the temperature/weather. He wasn’t obtrusive and made all the pictures as painless as possible! I had very little stress concerning Max as our photographer. The value we received from Max and his photography skills far outweighed the cost, considering he spent almost 10 hours capturing all the festivities with us! If you’re looking for a photographer for your wedding, you should definitely consider Max Cozzi Photography.

Prairie was so great to have at our wedding reception! She was very sweet and hardly noticeable (I know that sounds weird but I’ve had photographers in the past that want to drive the event and take over and cause too much stress). We have her flexibility on timing but she did not abuse it at all. She stuck around until she got all of the best shots and did such a great job. We didn’t get a chance to meet before our event but she did exactly what I was looking for. Just a bunch of fun shots of people having fun and dancing the night away. Thanks Prairie!!

Darren photographed me proposing to my now fiance and I couldn't have asked for anything better. He was great to work with and even met me at the zoo ahead of time to walk through things. It took out a lot of stress for me with the whole thing, as he was friendly and I trusted his work. Both of us love his pictures and we got them the day after so we were able to relive the event and see things we didn't even realize happened. Thanks to him so much.
