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.

Sebastian wasn't able to attend our wedding due to a hurricane in our city so he suggested another photographer that he trusted. Unfortunately, that photographer doesn't have many skills for a wedding and we aren't satisfied with his work. We appreciate Sebastian's customer service and for trying his best to solve the many issues we had with our wedding photos.

I was very happy with Edna! However, she was unable to do our wedding due to a scheduling issue; her cousin officiated our ceremony. Edna is very responsive and professional, and I really appreciated her services! I highly recommend her or her cousin to anyone who is looking for a bilingual officiant! Our wedding was on 11/10/19.

As I was looking for a makeup artist to do my makeup for my upcoming wedding I was contacted by me alone and I was very happy to see that she offered a rate of $45 for services. I was very much interested in booking her but of course a trial is needed beforehand to make sure you're getting exceptional services. I was informed that a trial would be $50 which was more than what was quoted for services on the day needed . I myself, is very much educated in the cosmetology business and know for a fact that is not how services work. I'm sure Aline is very much a great artist but maybe just not up for my standards in professionalism. Thanks, Wendy 👍

Danielle did our wedding on 12/4/22 and she made it wonderful. She incorporated our wants into a wonderfully written script ceremony and the result was stunning. Between our ceremony and personally written vows - dry eyes were hard to find. Thank you, Danielle! Jess and I appreciate your services and your warmth! We would recommend Danielle in a heartbeat!

Shari was amazing to work with. The first time we spoke with her, we knew she was the right person for the job. We had less than a week before our ceremony, but she was able to accommodate our date. Very pleasant, professional, responsive to questions and requests and was on time for the rehearsal and the ceremony. After determining what services we needed and taking time to explain what was needed legally, she provided a very reasonable quote. She helped us with our vows and worked with me to get the perfect ceremony script. Her energy was very calming during the very stressful activity of wedding planning, especially planning a wedding during COVID. Highly recommend Shari...she is the best!

Do not hesitate to hire Chris for your event. He was amazing!

My experience with Samoontha was perfect and professional from the start. I had scheduled hair, nails, make-up, photographer, and officiant cancelation debacle two weeks before my wedding due to hurricanes and other personal issues. Sam stepped in, like the pro she is and made me feel at ease about the situation just 9 days before my wedding. She was very flexible with providing a pre-trial make-up session and was always on time. Even as a 2nd hurricane approached, some time changes had to be made the day of and again, without fail, she was flexible and punctual. I can't say enough good things about my experience. Her service is worth it's weight in gold and valuable beyond measure. Thanks again Sam. You nailed it!

Many thoughts and considerations go into making a such an important decision such as choosing a wedding officiant. Beginning with the initial conversation and through each different ideation of ceremony Mariella was nothing but a detail oriented professional who truly cared about the experience of her clients. It would absolutely be a pleasure and privilege to offer my personal recommendation of anyone seeking such services going forward. She brought together what was truly an unforgettable experience, and we could not be more thankful.

Phillip is a very talented photographer I absolutely LOVE the photos he took of my wedding. Phillip was exactly what I was looking for. The photo package was affordable in price. Pictures were absolutely stunning and amazing quality. He was so easy to talk to, and he was understanding and patient when we had delays. Phillip truly has an eye for perfection. I will be definitely using his services again on future events. I will be highly recommending him to family and friends.

I'm providing an update to my original rating. While I had an excellent experience during my ceremony, it has been almost two years and the photos I paid for as part of my contracted wedding package have never been sent to me. My mother and I both have contacted Edna on numerous occasions and were promised my wedding photos. To this date, they have never been received. My mother called again around Christmas because she wanted to make me an album and Edna told her they would be sent. TIt's September 15, 2017 and I still have NO picutures from my wedding ceremony. It's unfortunate because the once amazing experience has now become a sore spot. found Edna on Thumbtack and I'm so glad I did. After my fiancé and I decided to cancel our huge wedding and opt for a smaller more intimate ceremony I was in the need for an officiant who could perform the ceremony over the Thanksgiving holiday while my daughter was in town. Edna and her husband Ed did not disappoint. Her price was more than reasonable and she treated my wedding wants with a care and professionalism beyond my expectations. Edna made great recommendations for the ceremony and acted as a planner during the event. While her husband took pictures (which was such a pleasant surprise) she made a point to make sure all of the highlights were captured from our first kiss as a couple to cutting the cake, Edna was thoughtful, responsive and kind. Edna and Ed joined us for dinner afterward and made the event extra special with her warm personality and attention to every detail. I cannot say enough about her services. Top notch all the way and every detail was covered. My intimate ceremony was more than I ever imagined and was told by attendees that it was more beautiful than anticipated on such short notice. Choose Edna for your special day and you will not be disappointed.

Reverend Ben Toro is absolutely amazing. It was a true honor to have him perform my wedding service. He made myself and my family and guests feel special and cared about, and there was absolutely no anxiety of rough moments in thg e ceremony. He worked with me to the point where he allowed me to format my own ceremony in both Spanish and English exactly as I wanted it and he excuted it flawlessly. Reverend Ben is an amazing man and both professional and friendly. He is probably one of the best people I've met in my life and it was truly a privilege to share this special occasion with him.

Customer service was amazing, they were on time and super kind. Unfortunately the quality of the work was not great. I booked them as a trial before my wedding day. I’m super glad I did. I was looking for a more natural look not so heavy but I turned out with a cakey looking face. Foundation did not match my face. I would have preferred to be advised that they did not have foundations that matched my skin tone I would have been glad to let them use my personal foundation for the job. Even while I was removing the makeup you could see how thick and light the makeup was. I was very disappointed 😔

DJ Intel pleasantly surprised us with his day-of service delivery. He was a prepared, organized, and hyped MC for my recent wedding reception. He was also responsive to last minute special requests and needs, had good transitions during the dinner potion, and kept the crowd on the dance floor during the dance half. On the professional end, I overall appreciated how he handled my questions during the initial booking and information he provided that helped during my selection process. (My only critique: There was a small challenge in him meeting a deadline to get his insurance form in as required by my venue. I believe it was due to it being just an usually busy work season for him, which caused me some concern initially. However, in the end, he did deliver and it did not cause a problem.) I would definitely recommend him for future bookings.

I hired Antwon in 2019 for a 10/10 2020 wedding event. He sent me the contract for $500. I was paid in full in 4 months per his contract. Come 2020 I rescheduled my wedding for 10/22/2022 due to covid. He was agreeable. Every year I checked in to ensure we were still a go. Come this year about 2 months ago, I asked if we were still OK and he said that "due to inflation--his prices had raised". He wanted to treat my "paid in full $500 as a deposit towards his new prices"...all packages started at $1000 or greater. He said I could just get a refund or choose a new package. I like to support small businesses so i considered --but ultimately i felt it wasn't fair I was paying more because COVID happened and because his packages were now "different". We went back and forth on it so I eventually just asked for a refund which he had offered. He changed course multiple times in conversation--he wanted to settle at 90 days for 250 and then closer to October the other 250. I didn't have much assurance he would pay especially after 9 months. When I pointed out how ridiculous that time table was he then said he had booked someone else on my date and that he wanted to accommodate me but that was all he would offer. He argued how my contract was forfeit for changing the date but i reached out year to year being told it was fine. At that point it was take 250 or lose 500 altogether. He showed me screenshots of a booking he made for MY date even with my name still on there. He then referred to our contract where it says my deposit is forfeited if my date wasn't available which suddenly it wasn't--though i had been checking in for years with him? He even said he had booked my date in jan of 2022. I eventually got tired of the back and forth and then realized the contract I signed only showed my signature so my fiancee and I just took the hit. I hired a new DJ instead. He DID refund the $250 for full transparency. For that i give 2 instead of 1 star. I would have rathered have the service i paid for or the full amount.
