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.

Hands down I would recommend Laura with Blush and Bay for a wedding florist and wedding coordinator. Laura is so wonderful to work with. While juggling many events and weddings, she makes you feel as though your wedding is her one and only priority! She is totally on top of it and is willing to go above and beyond to make your day amazing. Laura was one of my favorite vendors and you will not be disappointed if you choose blush and bay. Not to mention.. the flowers.... wow! amazing!!!

Rev Karen Mohr performed our wedding ceremony on 10/27/13. She is a warm, friendly person. She instantly felt like a very close friend or family. She kept in touch with us while we planned our small senior wedding and our ceremony was perfect. I highly recommend her for all wedding ceremonies.

She had to cancel 46 days before our wedding. Husband got a new job, I get it but makes wedding planning amazingly stressful. I had a friend whose photographer flew back from Arizona after she moved away from Colorado to honor her commitment and photograph her wedding since it was already booked. Disappointed.

Miranda was the number 1 person who made our wedding go smoothly. From our first meeting, through the follow-up meetings, the ceremony, the reception, and post-wedding photo choices, she has been the absolute best. She really gets to know the wedding couple and their family and friends. Her photos are natural and beautiful, and that's before any photoshop magic! Miranda takes communication as a top priority; she understood what we wanted out of our wedding photos and gave us helpful and creative ideas. Not to mention, that she is a joy to work with!

We could not have picked a better officiant for our wedding. Keppen was nothing but professional, truly caring, And punctual with everything he did. He took the time to truly get to know us before writing our ceremony. Keppen made our Day so special and we cannot ever thank him enough for the amazing ceremony he put on for us. If I could suggest one thing out of all of the wedding planning that I’ve done during the Covid pandemic is to hire keppen. He will make your day something truly special and I truly believe that because he did that for us. He turned a massive wedding into a two person wedding Without any hesitation it was always there to answer any questions we had. Keppen is somebody truly special to have in your wedding and to bring a couple together.

First of all, the Hannah and Eric’s wedding photos were so beautiful. Jas was able to set up as well as spontaneously capture the mood of the moment in each photo. Second, Jas was very flexible in working with us to add additional time and photos at the wedding reception. Third, she was very professional and knew how to navigate the event without being obtrusive. My wife’s posting of wedding pics on Facebook drew the attention of more than 150 likes (so far). Thank you Jas K!

Gloria was an amazing planner. She listened to everything we wanted and made sure that our day went as smooth as possible. She was there to direct the wedding party and guests and well as be sure each part of the wedding went as planned. She is also just a joy to work with. One of the sweetest women you can meet. Very personable and makes you feel comfortable while working with her. I would recommend her to anyone who needs a wedding planner! We loved her work!

We met with a few officiants for our non-traditional, Halloween/Fall-themed wedding, but Fatina stood out among them because she was focused on our story and exactly what we wanted from our ceremony. She was completely open to the thought of dressing up to officiate our wedding; and the costume she chose was absolutely perfect (we'll have to upload a picture when we get them)! She gave guidance when we needed it for the vows and added in parts that were specific and meaningful to our relationship. Fatina was very composed and focused while she officiated our wedding, even with multiple child-related distractions (LOL). We would recommend Fatina to anyone in need of a wedding officiant!
