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.

Reviews for Louisville wedding services
Thumbtack Customer
Rob was excellent! He first met with us 6 months prior to our wedding to go over details. Then he met us at the wedding site the day before the wedding to make sure the details were still the same. Due to traffic issues, our wedding guest were running late. Rob was very patient and flexible with the time of the wedding being postponed until our guest made it in. I highly recommend him to everyone!

I cant thank him enough for being a huge part of our wedding. Even my family and friends came up after the wedding to say how great Joe was! Thanks, Joe for making our special day so special!!

I hired Kayla to do my wedding makeup as well as my mother's, my husband's family and one of my bridesmaids. She was extremely flexible to do our trial and to do our makeup the day of the wedding. She was there early to the salon on the wedding day, and did such a great job on all the mothers, sisters and my bridesmaid. I was just blown away with the makeup we chose for my big day, and I looked just like a princess! I am definitely recommending her to anyone and everyone who is looking for a makeup artist for their wedding or event! Thank you again so much Kayla!

We just met Darrell and Cindy and immediately knew we wanted them to take the pics at my daughter’s wedding. They are both very personable and made us feel comfortable. Plus their photographs of other weddings were awesome. Can’t wait to see the memories they capture for us.

Kenzie did an amazing job on my makeup for my 1 year Wedding Anniversary photo shoot! It was just beautiful. I think it looked better than my makeup for my actual wedding! I will definitely be referring anyone I know to her when they need someone.

Mike was a tremendous asset during my whole wedding planning process. I booked him super early, but even at the beginning he made himself available whenever I had questions or concerns, and as we approached the wedding date he was sure to check in with me to make sure I had no further questions. He drove over an hour to meet us at the venue a few weeks before the wedding to go over logistics and scheduling. The wedding itself was a huge success; even though my venue provided a sound tech to play ceremony music off a CD, he was more than happy to come and take care of it himself (to save me the trouble of having to make a CD myself). His personality and song selections during the reception kept everyone dancing all night. I highly recommend!
