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.

Joe was great! He did an excellent job with the music and every song we requested throughout our wedding was played! He also provided microphones for the wedding officiant so the whole crowd could easily hear him! Joe repeatedly checked on us (bride and groom) throughout the night to make sure we were enjoying everything, and let us know when our scheduled dances would begin so there was no confusion with the flow!

Joe son Joey arrived on time he had everything prepared and he looked very professional. As we started the wedding it was flawless from start to finish. If Joey wasn't sure of a name or had any questions he was not afraid to ask. Our wedding was small but our experience with Joe Martin Disc Jockey Entertainment was exceptional from start to finish. Definitely got our money's worth. I will refer Joe to anyone who is in need of a great Disc Jockey. Thank you!

Phillip was incredible and so easy to work with every step of the way. We hired him almost a year before we got married, and he sent me emails just checking in and seeing how wedding planning was going every month. When it came to the actual wedding, he was incredible and so organized! He made our day run so smoothly and everyone had a blast. He listened to all of our requests and then based his play list off of them, which couldn't have been more perfect. We can't thank him enough.

I absolutely adore Shannon! She is amazing. She took a photograph that I had and turned me into the lady in the photograph for my wedding. She used extensions that I had purchased even though she had no idea I have them, she was patient funny kind and very easy to get along with. She even did my bridesmaid hair the day of my wedding without that being planned! I would highly recommend using her she can do anything with your hair! Simply amazing fan Shannon you're the best

Pastor Keith was the perfect officiant for our event. He arrived early and ready to go. We had a few people running late on our end and he was more then understanding. Everyone loved the ceremony and the humor he sprinkled in. He made the event exactly what we wanted for our backyard wedding!

My make up turned out beautiful on my wedding day! Courtney showed up on time, and had everything she needed with her to do an amazing job, including a make up chair and make up light. It turned out exactly how I wanted and I couldn't be happier to have her be part of my special day!

Phil was a phenomenal addition to our wedding and everyone loved him. My father couldn't stop raving about him afterwards. He was so professional and helped in any way he could. He was super fun to be around and really made us feel comfortable and like we could trust him. I would recommend him to anyone!

Joe was awesome! We initially picked him out of all the other officiants on here because he mentioned he did a "Princess Bride" wedding. Well, he also did this for us and wore the Pontiff hat (just for that part of the ceremony)! He was also punctual and professional. He met with us, got to know us, and we communicated back and forth about the ceremony and the layout of the different parts of the ceremony. He was even flexible to reschedule due to the pandemic.

Our wedding was awesome. We decided not to do a rehearsal as this was a small gathering in a park. I decided to sneak about 10 seconds of special music before the processional and "Mike" made a comment to my husband about it being inappropriate for the processional. Then my Grand daughters as flower girls followed the sidewalk instead of a more direct path to the front and "Mike" commented to my husband that "this is why we have rehearsals". So "Mike" gets average from us as his comments took away from our day.

Mr Spano was a top professional from our first contact thru the end of our wedding reception. He was in contact with the bride and groom more than once before the reception to assure everything was to their satisfaction, and had countless music choices. At the reception he served as an excellent emcee, stayed in contact with the bride and groom about the timing of events, and helped prompt food staff on their timing. Overall, he was very professional and friendly throughout, and we highly recommend him to anyone needing a true professional DJ.

We have had a 4 person backyard wedding due to COVID and we did our best to make it special for us. We contacted Sonoran Imagery for the pictures; they were always quick to respond, very professional and always on top of things. Our photographer arrived earlier than scheduled to give himself enough time to set up, and I really appreciated that. I’m so trilled with the pictures, I looked at them on a daily basis for a few days after we got them and admired the attention to all the details.

Steve is awesome! From the very start he was communicative, if we had a question he answered us and always made us feel so comfortable! He was so great throughout our wedding and even though it was our first time meeting him the whole family and us felt like we knew as a friend! The photos turned out absolutely stunning and there were so many! He returned our photos very quickly and it was easy to print them! If you are looking for a photographer, we highly suggest Steve, he is the best!! Thank you so much for capturing our special day!!
