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 wedding officiant during the COVID-19 pandemic?

The safest way to conduct a consultation during COVID-19 is virtually. Ask wedding officiants near you if they can have a phone call or a virtual appointment over video chat. If they can, make sure to ask them any questions you have about upcoming work. Discuss what precautions, if any, they have in place to ensure safety. You might consider asking if they accept digital payments or if they can complete the work remotely, without any in-person contact. 

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.

What is a mariachi band?

Mariachi bands are rooted in Mexican culture. Traditional mariachi bands consisted of two or more members playing stringed instruments, wearing regional costumes adapted from the charro (Mexican horseman or cowboy). Modern mariachi bands, which are likely what you’re looking for when searching for a mariachi band for hire, feature at least four members who play stringed instruments (violin, vihuela, bass guitar called guitarron) and one or more trumpets. The costumes have remained the same, but now trumpets are synonymous with mariachi music. Mariachi bands for hire often play a wide range of music, including styles originating from Mexico and adopted from elsewhere. These include jarabes, waltzes, serenades, corridos (Mexican ballads), ranchera, cumbia, and more. Mariachi bands for hire bring a festive and soulful element to a party, birthday, wedding, corporate affair, fundraiser or community event. UNESCO has inscribed mariachi music on the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.

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.

What is a videographer and what do they do?

A videographer professionally films weddings and other events and edits the footage to create film keepsakes or marketing materials for their clients. Wedding videographers record all the key elements of your wedding day, ceremony and reception, and then edit the hours of film during post-production to make a wedding video, social media highlight reels, and any other film features you choose. Wedding videography captures, in live action, your vows, the cake-cutting, the first dance, reception toasts, the decor, the guests and all the details of your day. Many wedding videographers also interview guests (based on an interview list provided by the couple) and incorporate the recorded responses into the wedding video. Event videography typically costs less than wedding videography, as events are shorter with less detail. The national average cost for event videography is $500-$760, while the national average cost for wedding videography is $990-$1,260. A videographer usually does not need to be licensed, but it is important to confirm they have insurance and good standing in the business community, as well as good client reviews. A great majority of the work happens during post-production. The pros watch and blend together the hours of footage they took (sometimes from multiple cameras) to capture the story of your wedding day or event.

How much does a wedding planner cost per hour?

On average, wedding planners charge $80 for their services. However, rates can range from roughly $50 per hour to $100 per hour, or even more than $300 per hour.

To find out how much it will cost to hire a wedding planner, request cost estimates from a few in your area. Also, keep in mind that some wedding planners may have flat fees instead of hourly rates.

Do wedding officiants offer remote or virtual services?

Reach out to wedding officiants in your area, and ask them if they can offer a remote or virtual ceremony. Some officiants may be willing to meet in person while maintaining 6 feet of distance, while others may prefer to conduct the entire service over the phone or a video call service such as Skype or Zoom.

Familiarize yourself with the social distancing rules in your community, city and state, and move forward only if both you and the officiant are comfortable with the arrangement. 

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.

Our original DJ, Ryan was unable to make our wedding event at the last minute, but he had an excellent back-up DJ and Talullah was AMAZING! She had another DJ with her, and I'm sorry that I didn't catch his name(or may have forgotten it after meeting other vendors at the wedding) and they did an excellent job! The music, sound equipment, and lighting was perfect for our backyard wedding. Thank you Tallulah for keeping everything on track, helping us with microphones, and for being so friendly. I would highly recommend this company to anyone

Rev. Mary Riley did an awesome job with our ceremony. We planned our wedding with short notice. On our wedding day, everything started off chaotic due to my fiance and I, and with our lack of time for planning. We planned the wedding ourselves and had no idea what we were doing. She set our mind at ease and took full control in a professional manner. She helped us every step of the way, with our vows, sand ceremony, ring vows and advice about weddings because we had no idea what to expect. She was very knowledgeable . Our ceremony was beautiful! Not only did she do a wonderful job at our ceremony but she also made everyone else we invited, family and friends, remember why they got married in the first place. I received many compliments from people at my wedding about her service. I can't say that I would use her services again, because I know in my heart this marriage will last a life time. With that being said, I would "definitely recommend her" to anyone who is planning a wedding and looking for an officiant in the future. You will not be disappointed. Thank you Rev. Mary Riley for providing us with a wonderful ceremony we will never forget! ~Brandon & Venus

Very impressed with Josh. He helped keep the wedding activities moving along (which was helpful when you get distracted talking to guests and such). He even reminded me of things that I didn't even think of! He played everything as requested and took requests which was super fun! We had such a great time dancing and celebrating to the music he provided. Thanks so much for making our wedding a wonderful memorable night!

AZ Mix Masters was a pleasure to work with throughout our wedding planning process! We met with Ume and Luis early on in our planning, and felt so good about choosing them for our DJ services. They are professional, warm, kind, genuine, and experts in their field. They are also very accommodating and have great add-on services like a Photo Booth! Ume was great to work with in strategizing where to place everything, as we had our wedding in my dad’s backyard during COVID. And Luis was a stellar DJ on our day of! He really kept the party going, hyped everyone up, and was a great MC. They were a great team to work with, very communicative and on top of everything. We felt at ease booking them, and would 10/10 recommend AZ Mix Masters for anyone looking for a DJ for their wedding or event! Great pick!
