Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

If you decide to hire a photographer, see if the photographer can take photos outdoors or in a large space so all involved parties can maintain the recommended distance between themselves. You should also sanitize surfaces, avoid handshakes, don’t make any other physical contact and use digital platforms to complete payments. Speak with a local photographer in your area to put a strategy in place.

Sharron was absolutely wonderful and put us at ease. We were very nervous but she has a very calm, friendly presence, which is perfect for wedding services. We would highly recommend her as a wedding officiant to anyone looking to get married.

Harris could not have done a better job with our wedding! He went above and beyond for us, and was professional through the entire process. He was funny, articulate, and the speech he gave during the ceremony was beautiful. I could not have imagined hiring someone else to be the officiant of my wedding, and I cannot recommend his services enough. Thank you Harris!

Harris did an excellent job preparing and writing our wedding ceremony. He solicits a lot of information to make the service as personal, familiar, and intimate as possible. The ceremony was touching but had just the right amount of humor.

Pastor Calicia's was great! She was very knowledgeable and articulated the process very effectively. She responded very quickly and agreed to be our Wedding Officiant with very little advanced notice. I would 100% recommend her service.

I cannot say enough about how happy both my husband and I were about the service performed by Harris at our wedding! Our guests loved him and enjoyed his charisma, comedic phrases, light-heartedness and sincerity he provided during the ceremony. He was easy to work with and always responded promptly to emails. Thank you Harris for making our wedding day a magnificent one!

The services provided to us by Luis Barreto were absolutely amazing. He was able to help my newly wed wife and I immemsely even considering the tight time constraints we were under and the fact that we were able to find exactly what we were searching for within such short notice. Luis was available to us through thumbtack with just three weeks to our wedding and his extensive experience was a great help as he provided ideas and was open for any input and feedback. Communication was great and he was always very punctual. Very friendly personality and exceeded our expectations in finding a great fit as an officiant to our Christian wedding.

I can not say enough about how great Israel is. He is the absolute best. I hired him pre-pandemic and he was great throughout the process leading up to me wedding 9.4.2021. I had him for ceremony services, Photo Booth and reception dj. He had someone man the Photo Booth, he was mc'ing during the wedding, the dj played the perfect tunes, a great mix of everything. He was able to take a Spotify list I shared with him prior to the wedding to curate the perfect mix for my special day. I had a late start but whatever is your wedding day dream, he will calibrate and roll with the punches to make your day the perfect day. I couldn't refer him more to anyone. All my guest loved the music and the booth.

Harris delivered a funny and touching service at our wedding just this weekend. It was a great balance of humor and touching moments. We had many guests tell us that they loved him, and we were glad that we picked Harris to start our marriage off on the right foot.

I wanted to get marry to my love before my grandmother passed away because we knew she didn’t have long and she wouldn’t be there in a year or two when we were originally planning to have the wedding. Keith Burgess made that possible. He came to the hospital out his way and made that happen for me in the most efficient way. I thank him so much for his services and will never forget it. I am also planning to use him for our wedding.

I had the pleasure of having Monica as my wedding officiant and I’m really glad I made the decision to retain her service. From our very first virtual exchange, Monica displayed an air of professionalism that quickly led me to be confident in her expertise. She was also very accommodating to my early morning ceremony and made herself readily accessible for any questions and concerns. Thank you very much Monica for helping to make the planning and execution phases of my wedding a smooth experience and for sharing in the creation of a special life memory.

Harris performed our wedding ceremony on 1/12, and he was fantastic. Our family and friends all raved about the ceremony after, and he did a great job keeping it light but meaningful, and really connecting with our audience. He did a great job guiding us in putting our ceremony together, and helped coordinate a lot of the rehearsal beforehand. We've been to a lot of weddings where the officiant was dry or dull or barely seemed to know the couple, and but Harris was the complete opposite. Not planning to require his services again, but would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for an officiant.

My Husband and I were Pleasantly Satisfied with Mr. Franklin’s Services on Our Glorious Wedding Day. He catered to all requests diligently and with precision. Mr. Franklin even left us with a copy of our ceremony in words as a kind token. If/When opportunity presents itself to be able to assist anyone in need of an Officiant, Mr. Franklin will be referred.

D&D Designs We were lucky to find D&D Designs to provide catering and event planning services for our wedding. We searched everywhere and found nothing but over-priced providers who charged exorbitant prices for every single item they rent, and who had outrageous prices for menu items such as coffee and tea services and the wedding cake. D&D Designs went above and beyond and provided great value. Dee, who is the manager at D&D Designs is a professional, respectful, and committed caterer and event planner. From our first conversations together, Dee made us feel that she could execute our vision for our event. She paid attention to detail and ordered special items that we wanted, both for the menu and for the decorations. If you have a theme or a concept in mind, Dee will make it happen for you. Every aspect of our wedding was executed with precision and we were so happy with the final result on our wedding day. We decided to do our own bar and Dee provided excellent bartenders who were efficient, friendly, and knowledgeable about the drinks they were serving. Our guests didn't have to wait to get their drinks. The server staff was also professional and efficient. The food was tasty. The guests loved the cake. We wanted a naked cake and they provided a gorgeous and delicious one. We would absolutely recommend D&D Designs to anyone looking for committed, down-to-earth people who care about what they do, and who go the extra mile to make you feel that your wedding is the most important event in the world. D&D Designs has competitive prices and flexibility. They accommodated all of my requests and gave us lots of free add-ons. We were so happy with everything. Thank you D&D Designs for making our day so special and for executing our unique vision for our wedding.

David Miller Studio was an absolute joy to work with for my wedding! David was hands down one of the best photographers I have ever worked with. He was incredibly professional. He was prepared and communicative throughout the whole process. From contracts, day-of services, and payments everything went so smoothly. Along with being professional, he was fun to work with. His personality was contagious. He was able to connect with everyone at the wedding and felt like a part of the family for the day. On the day of the wedding, he was creative and helpful. He gave us shots that we could have never even thought to suggest and helped pose us. He knew exactly what he needed to get the best shot and was super organized in directing everyone. The transition from picture to picture was done with ease. Looking back through our photos, we are so happy how our wedding day was captured. He is worth the investment, and we are happy that we can look back on these photos for the rest of our lives. We are so fortunate to have been able to experience David's talents and passion. I will definitely recommend David to all my friends and family for the future.

I hired Jose to dj my wedding reception and I couldn't be happier with the service, he was able to keep all my guest dancing all night, after the party was over I kept getting great feedback from my guests regarding the dj and how good the music was. I will definitely hire him again for another event and I will recommend it to all my friends.
