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.

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!

She even send out texts 2 days and 2 hours before my wedding day to put my mind at ease because of my first officiant cancelled on me 2 weeks before my wedding. I really appreciate her service. Thank you again Miss Thange!!! Book her service you won’t be disappointed 😊

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.

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.

My fiance and I had a wonderful experience with Daniel officiating our wedding. Daniel was professional, funny, and led a very nice service (he also has a wonderful voice.) In these Covid times, my fiance and I felt safe around Daniel, as it was very clear that he takes the virus seriously and is responsible about his safety, and therefore that of others. Would abso

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.

Ms. Hill at SimplyweddingsNYC@gmail.com is beyond wonderful. In our new normal, my mom and her childhood sweetheart had a virtual wedding that was performed by Ms. Hill.

A Touch of Class DJs provided excellent service at my wedding on August 2nd. Everyone at the wedding was dancing, which is what exactly what I wanted! And Louis also had activities for the kids. I had about 15 kids. Plus we both our church youth group there who also joined in the festivities. Everyone thought the activities (limbo and musical chairs) were a great way to keep the kids entertain. Louis also provided suggestions for certain dances (i.e. processional, first and last songs, etc) and worked with us on the types of music we would liked played at the reception. They also provided music for the outdoor ceremony and indoor cocktail hour. They help set the romantic mood for the ceremony and jazzing-amotsphere for the cocktail. I also appreciated that A Touch of Class DJs was very responsive, whether it was a phone call or email. They got to the wedding venue early to set up. (We like being early.) A Touch of Class DJs were professional and it showed through there great work!

Michael Keller from Presentation LLC was the pro hired for our backyard wedding. He was professional and present from start to finish. He responded to my request almost immediately. Michael was very transparent every step of the way, no surprises. He was in constant contact about every aspect and detail of his service. (Pictures, texts, emails, phonecalls) He arrived on time, sharing his location every step of the way and provided delicious, well prepared, presented, and appetizing meals. My guests were raving about the quality of the food. He gave me more food than was even expected. Special shout out for the oxtails, eggplant parmigiano, and the delicious salad. Everything was delicious! Exquisite! Michael went above our expectations for our wedding. We will hire him again in a heartbeat for any event that we're hosting. Well done Michael!

T&C catered our wedding on July 26, 2014. To say that our experience with T&C was amazing would be an understatement. EVERYTHING was phenomenal! The service was impeccable and our guests are even calling us just to talk about the food! Carol was so helpful from the beginning and made our day run beautifully! The servers were awesome and literally everything was amazing. Those chicken and waffle bites were a HIT! From the food, drinks, service, preparation and clean up, T&C catering held everything down for us! I have absolutely no complaints and it is an honor to recommend such an amazing company. Thanks Carol and everyone who was a apart of our day! Love Sarah and Eli
