Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

How do you find a good caterer?

Reviews, interviews and menu tastings will help you find the right catering choice for your big day. Start by screening possible wedding caterers based on past reviews. If a caterer you are interested in has a review that concerns you, ask them about it; how they respond will be very telling. Next, ask about their availability for your wedding date.

If the wedding caterer is available on your date, it’s time to talk about menus and prices. Be clear about what your maximum budget is find out what choices this will allow you. Caterers may custom-create a menu for your event, or they may have menu templates within different price ranges that can guide your decision. A clear budget gives the caterer clear parameters within which to work and offer creative suggestions. Schedule a menu tasting to confirm you love your wedding menu. Once you have a menu and date, and have paid a deposit to reserve the caterer’s services, confirm additional details including when the food will be delivered to the site, what kind of service will be provided, how many servers will be onsite and for how long, and who is responsible for setup and cleanup. The more specific your contract, the fewer worries you’ll have on your wedding day. Get more smart hiring tips here.

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.

How much are wedding DJs?

Hiring a DJ typically costs anywhere from $300 to $1,200. It all depends on how long they’ll be working at your wedding and other various factors. The cost to hire a wedding DJ is usually higher than the cost to hire a DJ to play at a birthday party or similar event. 

To find out exactly how much your wedding DJ will cost, ask for a cost estimate from several professionals in your area.

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.

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.

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.

Great services!!! if I could give her more stars I would.We wanted a bilingual ceremony, because some of our guest didn't speak English and some didn't speak Spanish, and Damaris gave us different ceremonies options to make the day special. The day of the wedding, she was punctual and we were late :), but in the end the ceremony was beautiful and everyone at the wedding loved it ... thanks Damaris

It was such a pleasure to work with Rabbi Melinda. From the time we began to working together, we immediately sensed that Melinda got us and what we wanted for our ceremony. It was a great experience from beginning to end. The service she gave for our wedding was beautiful and special and I couldn't have asked for a more special day. We were so lucky to have her officiate our wedding.

Sherry is amazing. Literally felt like family from the minute we spoke on the phone. Went above and beyond to help me in a dire situation. I can’t thank her enough for what she did for our wedding day. I will definitely use her services in the future and I’m sure she will get business from our wedding after everyone raves about the food. 10/10 recommend.

Reverend Gonzalez was very sweet and guided the wedding party with how the walk through would look like. Being a bride with no event planner, I really appreciated his knowledge and guidance and also suggestion of music. He showed interest in the audience and made the whole interaction light and full of joy. He arrived really early to the venue so he could see the location and ask us questions so we could all be on the same page prior to the wedding starting. I would recommend this service to everyone, be mindful that we paid for premium service and it was worth every penny.

Judge Rob disappointed me immensely. After booking him and discussing my wedding, months later, I spoke to him confirming our affairs, he made other arrangements. He didn't call me to inform me of the cancellation. I had to. If I hadn't done so, my wedding would've been without an officiant. The level of dissatisfaction has surpass any other service I have ever been disapprove of. His communication was poor.

D&D Photos was extraordinary! David and his wife are the perfect duo. Their services was nothing short of amazing. I'm very thankful for their services. David was very responsive. If I needed anything, he took care of it. I couldn't have hired a better photographer. Selecting D&D Photos for our wedding was one of our best decisions. Thank you again.

Hiring Manny (DJ Font) was one of the best decisions I made for my wedding. He was able to accommodate a last minute switch for us which I really appreciated. Our wedding had a good mix of English and Spanish only speakers and Manny was able to get everyone dancing. He even got my grandma dancing. He took special requests and was so good at reading the room to get them moving. He was very responsive from the first contact we made. When we got to the venue for our first look, he was already there setting up. I would highly recommend him for any event you need DJ services for. Thank you so much for making my wedding day extra special!

I spoke over the phone with Sophia on two separate occasions several weeks before the event and confirmed with her that we wanted to use her services. She seemed extremely professional and pleasant. As my wedding day approached, she sent an email reconfirming the event. I did not see her emails and did not reply so she cancelled my booking. She had my phone number, that was the only way we had ever contacted each other but she did not bother reaching out to me on the phone like before. On my wedding day, I must have called her at least a dozen times and she never answered. This entire misunderstanding cost me $420 because I had to hire another wedding officiant. I can understand her frustration at not receiving an answer via email but I would have hoped she would have tried contacting me the way we had originally communicated and that was by the phone. I am only guessing she got a better gig and changed venues leaving me out to dry. She did not even bother to answer the phone on my wedding day to tell me that she was no longer planning on being our wedding officiant.

Rosy was our wedding officiant on 11.12.13 and I must say that everything was beyond perfect. She did a great job of guiding me through the whole process and making it as comfortable and perfect for us as possible. Rosy was early, affordable, professional and did an amazing job being our wedding officiant. We laughed, my bride cried and we couldn't have asked for someone to do what we needed any better. Our dog Max was part of the ceremony and Rosy was not only open to that, but enjoyed it and even included him into the ceremony speech so that made it all the more amazing. Rosy was super flexible when it came to last second changes which was great! I definitely recommend booking Rosy Figueroa for service! Rafael Duran Wedding on 11.12.13 at Longans Place Miami, FL

We had a very great experience with Judge Rob. He's very professional, got there on time, and offers an excellent service. Highly recommend to any couple for their wedding. Respond quickly to questions and a very happy person. He even helped out taking some of the pictures, and made us feel more relaxed in such an important day of our lives.

Reverend Pedro Martinez made our wedding extra special. He was on time and was extremely patient and helpful in guiding us before and through the ceremony. He performed the ceremony flawlessly, with both emotion and passion. Reverend Martinez was professional, endearing, and all our guests commented on how nice he was. We want to thank him and would highly recommend having him perform any service.

Working with Minister Adrian was great! My now husband and I are from Philadelphia and we were planning a destination wedding. I was nervous about finding an ordained minister from another state but from the moment I initiated contact with Minister Adrian he made us feel like we were in good hands. He was very responsive, accommodating, and made our day special. I would recommend his services without hesitation.

Raquel, our officiant, was a joy to work with. She was very communicative from the very first. She kept us informed about each step and sent us the wedding script. On our special day Raquel was a little early and spent the time helping us prepare and nicely guiding us. The service was very nice in every way. Raquel was just great. We would recommend her to anyone looking for a nice, joyous comfortable officiant.
