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.

I hired Blind Fox Wedding Photography because Sara and I connected the moment we talked and I just knew she would get the pictures and capture the moments on our wedding day. She is absolutely amazing! I am absolutely thrilled that I had hired her to take our photos for our wedding.

George was an awesome asset to have at our wedding. He was super responsive, awesome to meet and he played wonderfully. I reached out to him months before our wedding and gave him a few songs I wanted to use in our wedding (that he was unfamiliar with) He invited us to watch him play them at a restaurant so we could hear how they sounded beforehand. We were thankful to have found George because he was a great price and well worth it! We would recommend George a million times over. He played great and is an awesome guy.

Our family travelled to Ohio for a destination wedding and I reached out to BigChamps in short notice and he worked with my budget and time-frame. He was punctual, professional and responsive! The photos came out great and I’m overall satisfied with his work. During the wedding there were a few hick ups but he worked with us through everything! I highly recommend him to anyone!!

We hired Rev. Robert Hull to perform our wedding ceremony, and he exceeded our expectations. He was very helpful and worked very hard to give us exactly what we wanted in every aspect for our wedding. We have no regrets and are very pleased with his work. He is a very kind and thoughtful man, and made us feel very special from day one.

Tramise was great to work with from the planning of our ceremony up to the day of our wedding. Prior to the ceremony we met with her (virtually) multiple times to discuss details of our ceremony. Through her officiating of our ceremony she was able to tell our love story to our guests along with the vows. She kept the guests engaged throughout the ceremony with flow of the events along with humor. One of our guests complimented Tramise saying “that officiant is so good she can officiate my funeral.” 😂 Thank you Tramise for making our wedding ceremony special and unique to us. It was a blessing to work with you.

Brad was great! He was very friendly and supportive of the wedding party. He was patient when I asked the same few questions multiple times (nerves were getting to me!) Afterwards, we got numerous compliments on the ceremony: we opted for short and sweet and Brad delivered!

Tramise provided a customized experience that enhanced our experience before, during, and after our actual wedding ceremony. She was very engaged and personable. She was very thoughtful, respectful, and easy going. So happy we happened upon her on this site; worth her weight in gold!

It was really easy working with Brad. My husband and I wanted to keep it short and simple and we wanted a non-denominational ceremony. Since my husband and I aren’t religious and that we come from two different religious backgrounds. Brad was really good at checking in with us before the wedding and messaging us to see where things are going for the ceremony.

Brad was fantastic. He was very informative, professional, and polite. He met with us the day before the ceremony and went over everything in detail. He was more than happy to adjust little things here and there to accommodate our out-of-the-ordinary wedding ceremony. He even dressed up in an outfit my husband provided. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for an easy and relaxing ceremony. He truly took the work out of it for us.

I loved my consult with Olivia. She was super responsive when it came to all of my questions and took my ideas into consideration. By the time we were done, I loved the way she made me look and booked her on the spot for my upcoming wedding. She had me looking so good after my consult that I made my fiancé take me out on a date lol. She really elevated my natural features. I highly recommend her!
