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.

Our DJ played all the right songs for our wedding. We left it up to him to select the music. His team was there on time and ready to go! I would definitely recommend him again to anyone needing a DJ!!! 💯💯

Drew was so professional throughout the entire process. He made our wedding flow so nicely, despite some last minute curveballs we threw at him. I would wholeheartedly recommend him for any event that you need a DJ for!

DJ Cortez was very excellent! Our wedding was Sept. 1st, 2018. Last minute, we needed a DJ and he was up for the challenge! He was very quick to respond when I contacted him and was very responsive with follow-ups. My husband (now) and I met with him in person before the wedding and he was very kind, friendly, and professional. He really ensures that your own music is played and what you want is what he will present. He was very accommodating with the games we wanted to play and even pronounced the names of our big bridal party three times so he doesn't mess them up on the day of! Highly recommended!!!

Joe was an awesome DJ! He was professional, accommodating and nice to work with. He did my wedding ceremony and reception and our guest loved him. He was entertaining and kept my reception moving. My husband and I were very pleased. I highly recommend Joe and will use him in the future if I ever need a DJ again!

Madison was nothing short of perfect for me. Not only is she an artist, she's a super sweet individual. She caters to your needs and ensures you get what you pictured. I asked Madison to do my makeup/hair for my small wedding and she definitely killed the look. The makeup picture is about 5 hours after and the hair picture is about 9 hours after. All pictures are POST nap so excuse any flyaways or any flaws because EVERYTHING was on point. These pictures really don't do her work justice! 😭 She handled my thick long hair like a champ and made me feel beautiful for my special day! Even post nap!!! Hands down, one of the EASIEST experiences ever. She's organized, kind, and talented at what she does. There's nothing more I could have asked for!

Bri did a phenomenal job beginning to end. She is very personable but knows how to manage her time very well. Our wedding was about 10 minutes so we requested some posed pictures with family and just the groom/bride. I'm a very photo awkward person but she made us very comfortable! All the pictures were so consistently stunning. Seeing her take pictures was also amazing, this lady holds all her tools on her body. You'll see her slinging different cameras capturing all the moments. She is ready for ANYTHING! And she's a wonderful hype girl! I can go on and on!! She made this process so easy for us and now we have some amazing photos that'll hang on the wall for a long while. Overall, very nice experience! I can't wait till next time!! I've posted one of my favs below (pic quality was downgraded after posting) which was my husband and I just walking to the car. If she can capture this moment, imagine how well she does with all the other magical moments?? Again, fantastic!
