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.

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.

What is a wedding planner?

A wedding planner is a professional service provider whose job it is to organize and execute all the details of a couple’s wedding. A wedding planner can be contracted at any stage in the wedding planning process to help to any degree the couple is willing to pay for. Wedding planning is similar to event planning in that a planning team handles the coordination of multiple wedding elements including catering, venue, guests, entertainment, decor, transportation and more. Anyone who has ever been involved in a wedding can confirm that wedding planning is hard work. Experience brings wisdom when it comes to avoiding or resolving day-of challenges. There is no legal regulatory body that oversees or certifies wedding planning as an industry. Anyone who chooses can call themselves a wedding planner. When looking for a wedding planner, be sure to read reviews, and make smart hiring decisions by asking about licenses and insurance.

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.

We hired Mark for our wedding and reception. I have to say Mark did a great job for us. Mark was on time and he played all the music we liked. Mark also did a great job with our announcements. We would hire Mark again if we ever need a DJ again. Thank you again Mark. Scott & Jill

She is amazing! I had both her and her husband work at my wedding and I’m not a creative person in the least and she came up with ideas for cute pictures and made sure that there were plenty of all the different kinds of pictures. She also is extremely friendly and will get back to you immediately. I will update after I get pictures as well. But I don’t have enough compliments for her. I looked at her portfolio (They are AMAZING) and can not wait to see some of my pictures!

Brad was the best choice we could have made when choosing a DJ for our wedding. He is so flexible, kind, professional, helpful, and an overall fun-loving person. From the first meeting to my unique "Do Not Play List," Brad gave us his undivided attention and made us feel like we were his top priority. I was about to have a small internal meltdown right before I walked down the aisle, but he gave me very positive, assuring words that helped me make it without panic. He helped our guests feel comfortable during our long cocktail hour and kept the party going long into the reception, even when people weren't on the dance floor. He dealt with my crazy requests and even made helpful suggestions throughout the night. I have been to a few weddings where the DJ takes over the reception, making the bride and groom unhappy, but that was far from Brad's mannerisms. He was able to get a sense of the crowd and play appropriate music. We got countless compliments on the music choices and flow. He offered to help in any way possible and checked in on us every-so-often to ensure we were pleased with how things were going. If you're on the fence about choosing a DJ, pick Brad. You will be more than satisfied. I cannot recommend him enough and will use him again for any future events!

Dianna is more than amazing at her job! She is so professional and polite, she is fun and sweet to work with! She is like family now and it is so great to keep in contact. She knew exactly what we wanted for our wedding (She knows all Pinterest pictures too). She took charge and got it done and we had so many laughs. Her prices are great and I felt so comfortable talking about money with her, honestly do not need anyone else, she takes pictures like there were 5 photographers! Amazing lighting and techniques, perfect angles and just being herself makes you feel so confident in her. The picture I uploaded was one a family member took but she really does go above and beyond for you (getting your photos back is quick too).
