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.

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.

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 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.

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.

Cory did such an amazing job on our wedding photos, she is so talented! We couldn't be more pleased with her service. She was even willing to meet us ahead of our wedding day in order to make us feel more comfortable and to plan exactly where we would be taking photos. On the day of, she helped make each set of photos (bride/groom + family photos) seamless and efficient. I would highly recommend her to anyone and everyone. Especially those that don't need a photographer for the entire day like a traditional wedding. She is modestly priced for the talent that she offers! Thanks so much Cory!

Rev. Coons was a welcome addition to our daughter’s wedding day. He met with us prior to the ceremony; he was friendly and personable. He had great suggestions and based the service on what meant the most to the kids. We received many compliments on both the content of the ceremony and the officiant. Thanks so much Dave! Outstanding job!

Joe was a truly professional and talented photography and he went to great lengths to accommodate all of us that night while we celebrated my mother and father's 50th Wedding Anniversary. I cannot thank him enough for making the evening a real gift and treasure for my whole family. I would recommend Joe to anyone who needs photography services. Thank you Joe.

Cory was an awesome photographer. He was great to work with & very responsive. We had engagement & wedding photos done with him & he did an excellent job with the photos & his timeliness in getting our pictures back to us for review was quicker than i have heard from other photographers. I have friends that have waited several months to just get a sampling of their photos & we were able to initially see ours in 3 weeks... I already recommended him to a co-worker because I was so impressed with his services.

Working with Roberta and her husband for our little wedding was delightful! We decided to go with her services originally because of the style of photography we saw from her. We were really looking for someone who took nice bright pictures that were colorful and didn't a) wash out the dress and b) look muddy from a darker filter. She was very responsive and warm on the phone and always offered to be there to listen to "wedding-talk" :) Her online portal was very helpful, allowing us to exchange legal documents, payment, and instructions all in one place. Their group organization was very logically thought out and ran smoothly and quickly. The portal had a list of groups to take pictures with so that they could be called by name, as well as checking off pictures that weren't important to us or might not have wanted. At the actual wedding, I was a little nervous that my husband and I would come out looking awkward and not know what to do for poses. Roberta brought printed out photos of poses I had specifically told her I liked - this was SO helpful! My husband and I could easily look at the picture and understand what they wanted. They were also great coaches to help the photo look more relaxed and natural. We are very satisfied with our photos and happy that we received them in several formats. I would definitely recommend this couple team to anyone looking for an on-time and more relaxed photography experience.
