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 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’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. 

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.

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 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. 

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.

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.

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.

Are there ways to be safe if I hire a wedding officiant when social distancing?

If you decide to hire a wedding officiant when social distancing, ask if the officiant can offer remote services. Some wedding officiants are choosing to conduct services virtually and/or stand more than 6 feet away from the parties. Discuss possible arrangements with your wedding officiant, and familiarize yourself with your local community guidelines, as well as the CDC’s guidelines for social distancing. Only move forward if you and the officiant both feel comfortable.

You may want to implement extra precautions, such as using digital payments instead of exchanging cash, sanitizing all involved spaces and waving instead of shaking hands.

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.

DJ Yves did a great job providing DJ/MC services at our Catholic wedding reception. He kept us on schedule, made people smile and laugh, and even got the bride's 71 year old father onto the dance floor. Our guests made many positive comments about their enjoying the event. The bride and groom entrusted their reception to Yves, and that trust was well placed. Thank you, Yves, for a worry free and fun wedding reception!

Esther.. thank you SO MUCH for officiating our wedding. To those reading this review, our wedding had to change suddenly from a courthouse wedding, to a a simple backyard wedding and we were worried about finding an officiant in such little time. Well I looked on Thumbtack and saw not only was she one of the more affordable officiants, but her reviews were really good! Well I messaged Esther, and she was able to officiate our ceremony. We didn't have time to write vows and because of our time crunch, and to simply put it, Esther made our vows very memorable with what she decided to write for us in such little time! The speech was heartfelt, our vows were heartfelt, and Antonio and I were very pleased with the service. It was such a pleasure meeting you Esther, and Antonio and I wish you all the best. God bless you.

Considering that my actual wedding isn't until November, some may feel that this review is a bit premature; however, since my first conversation with Chef Corwin, he has been nothing shy of AMAZING ensuring that my wedding day is everything I could imagine and more. His professionalism and friendliness are bar none. He's created a menu that both my husband and I can agree on and afford with all the bells and whistles! This won't be the last time we utilize his services and urge anyone who wants nothing but the best to do the same.

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 👍

We were so lucky to have Mo, Jessica and their team on our wedding day. They had every single detail planned and didn't miss a thing! We started with a tasting where they came into our home, cooked everything we wanted to try, and let us work out our menu. They gave us a price on the spot, and never varied from it. They communicated so efficiently with us for the months up to the wedding and didn't get mad at me when I wasn't the best communicator :) On our wedding day, they did everything they could to make it and easy day. We didn't have to ask for ANYTHING! Immediately after the ceremony, we had pictures and they walked a few hundred yards just to bring us a plate of snacks! The service was fantastic, the entire staff was incredible, they take your dream and make it reality!

Corwin and his staff did an amazing job catering our wedding! We have nothing but positive things to say. Corwin provided amazing service and the food was delicious. We received raving reviews from our guests about how great the food was. We were from out of town, but Corwin was always accessible and worked with us planning our menu for our special occasion. Corwin has been a pleasure to work with, and we would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a friendly and professional caterer.

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.

I needed a photographer very last minute to photograph my parents 50th wedding anniversary party and take quality pictures of our immediate family members since we'd all be present and dressed formal. Simone really came through for us. He arrived early to set up and didn't leave until all of the important photographs of our event were taken even beyond what our contract stated. He was wonderful to work with. Very professional very accommodating, wonderful customer service and affordable. He really saved the day. He took wonderful and creative pictures and went above and beyond what our contract stipulated. He really made sure to capture the important moments of our events as well as candid ones. I would highly recommend Simone. I think I've just found our family photographer.

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.
