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.

Renee was extremely responsive and accommodating to our last minute needs! Our original wedding was postponed due to the pandemic and we threw together a last minute wedding ceremony so we could still celebrate our original day. This would not have been possible without Renee's willingness to be flexible with us at the last minute. She was also very accommodating to our ask of altering the wedding scripts as well. Such a pleasant experience! Thank you again!

Small intimate ceremony at our home. Chris provided us with a few options for wedding vows, and we were able to pick vows that were beautiful and absolutely captured our love for each other. The ceremony went very smoothly, and Chris was perfect! She dressed in our wedding colors and fit right in with our guests. I have to say that our wedding ceremony was emotional and touching, and I have Chris to thank for helping us capture those feelings!

Wow!! Deana made my wedding so special. It didn’t feel like just words being read. This was a magical moment that I will never forget. Deana was on time and very professional. Weeks and days before the wedding she kept in touch. When we were looking for someone I told my husband she is the one. After the wedding all we talked about is how perfect Deana was for us and we were glad we went with her. So if you are looking for the perfect officiant she is the ONE.

Jaime was wonderful and kind. She beautifully did my hair, and my bridal party’s hair for my wedding day. I couldn’t be happier with the results. She captured the soft look that I was going for, and I will always be grateful! She is easygoing and willing to come to wherever the client is. My wedding day was sweetly memorable thanks to her!

Vic was fantastic! If you want a wedding video but don’t want to pay $5,000.00 for an overproduced, aerial drone camera 4 minute video, Vic is your guy. Super affordable and simple edit of our wedding video, and he also included a nice short version with music for our viewing. Absolutely professional and polite, too.

The word AMAZING isn’t enough to describe Tabitha. We hired her to do our wedding pictures and just finished an engagement session with her. Her promptness and communication skills go unmatched. Our engagement photos are outstanding and I cannot wait to see the pictures from our wedding. Hire won’t regret it.❤️

We found Angelique while planning a last minute wedding due to the coronavirus. She was able to community with us virtually up until the day of. Our wedding was in St. Simons and she arrived from Jacksonville right on time. The ceremony was short sweet and simple. We’re glad that she was able to make our marriage official with such little notice!

There aren’t enough words to describe how amazing Ross is to work with! Not only is he one of the nicest guys I’ve ever met, his work is unmatched! Ross videoed our wedding and blew away all of our expectations! We got to have a consultation with him before our wedding, he listened to every single word and took our vision and made it into the perfect wedding video! I would recommend him 100/100 times over! We have no regrets with choosing Ross and I promise you won’t either!!! #kayla+dillon

You cannot go wrong with Deana! We met the day of my wedding and she helped us the whole way. We could not have felt more comfortable with her if she was family! She understood the importance of our handfasting ceremony. AND she got our license to the courthouse double quick because it was going to expire a few days after the wedding. In a time when weddings can take over your life and seem like a whirlwind of planning and paying for things you think you need but don't! You need Deana! She's worth every penny and will make your day memorable!!
