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 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’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. 

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 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 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. 

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.

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.

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.

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

If you decide to hire a wedding officiant when social distancing, ask if the officiant can offer remote services. Some wedding officiants are choosing to conduct services virtually and/or stand more than 6 feet away from the parties. Discuss possible arrangements with your wedding officiant, and familiarize yourself with your local community guidelines, as well as the CDC’s guidelines for social distancing. Only move forward if you and the officiant both feel comfortable.

You may want to implement extra precautions, such as using digital payments instead of exchanging cash, sanitizing all involved spaces and waving instead of shaking hands.

Amir was earlier than the expected time and immediately jumped in and took pictures. My wedding was on 8/29 and I received my pictures on 9/3, which was quicker than anticipated. He captured the essence of our wedding and did I mention, he sent all pictures?!?! Unlimited pictures of my special day was a true blessing. Amir was fun to work with and we will use his services in the future.

Michelle was an amazing officiant for our wedding and we wouldn't have wanted any other person. She held a beautiful ceremony in front of our closest family - one that will be in our hearts forever. She was responsive, kind, warm, and her service was relevant and the exact amount of time we wanted it to be. Thank you so much Michelle for this beautiful service!

Leslie was the most amazing wedding officiant (Rabbi) I could have ever imagined. She performed the entire service outside in the freezing cold and did not complain once. She attended the rehearsal and guided my wife and I every step of the way. Every guest in attendance raved about how well she explained every prayer, item, and step of the Jewish Wedding that most of them had never experienced before. I will absolutely refer anyone who is having a wedding and in need of a Rabbi to officiate to her. I wouldn't use anyone else! She was better than I could have ever dreamed!

Erika did such an amazing job with the makeup for my wedding! She traveled to my Hotel Palomar suite and spent 4 hours perfecting 6 faces. She was extremely professional and personable, which allowed me to relax and enjoy getting ready on my big day! I highly recommend her services. Thank you, Erika!

My husband and I got married on 4/7/18 and used Horn Global's DJ/Emcee services. I could tell that HB was going to do a great job from the start. He was very communicative and tried to get a good idea of what we had in mind. He even asked for wedding colors and pictures so he and his wife could coordinate. Once we got our song list down, he went out of his way to hand deliver a CD so we could be sure the songs were the correct versions of what we had in mind (it is nice to have). Our wedding day was a blast and HB and his awesome wife are to thank! Mrs. Horn has a lovely voice and knows just how to keep the wedding on track. Her timing was spot-on! She even assisted with ushering our guests to the correct place within our venue. The music was just what we wanted and the dance floor was packed all night. Our guests keep telling us how much fun they had. I wholeheartedly recommend Horn Global's services! Thank you HB! - Andy and Adri Whiteley

I travelled to Dallas for my best friend's wedding and was in need of a talented yet affordable MUA. This was not only my first time in Dallas but also my first time using Thumbtack. I was pleasantly surprised with the service I received. I booked with Kenishia because I was really impressed by her portfolio of work that I saw on Instagram and her past reviews. From the beginning, Kenishia maintained an open line of communication. On the day of the appointment, she arrived to my hotel on time and ready to work. Regarding the makeup services, Kenishia was truly a professional. I really appreciated that she took the time to prep my face before applying makeup. During the service, she did not hesitate to answer any questions regarding products, application, or simply recommend brands that would work best for me. She really works to enhance your natural beauty and make you red carpet fabulous. I love the wedding glam look she created for me so much so I did not want to take my makeup off at the end of the night. I received so many compliments on her work and I would book her again without hesitation next time I am in the Dallas area.

I cannot recommend Jackson’s Art Studio enough. The pictures are artistic and beautiful. The team is outstanding. I felt like I had friends, event assistants, and the best photographers available at my wedding (and engagements). They work so hard to make sure your dreams and vision are realized. They’re fantastic with children and endlessly patient with guests that don’t take direction well. And they give great direction when you don’t know what to do with yourself. The service is above and beyond, truly out of this world. And the pictures are just perfect. This photography team was my favorite decision of the entire wedding. The communication from the beginning was more than I could ask for. I couldn’t even have made the wedding happen without all their help. Do yourself a favor and choose this photographer. Picking Garrett was the best decision I ever made, other than marrying my husband of course. ;) I am so grateful to Garrett and his team. I’ll be grateful and in love with these pictures for the rest of my life. Also, they’re good people. I truly believe that they are good-hearted people that want to better and lift up others. They certainly lifted me up. Garrett has a heart of gold and an artistic eye for photography.

Dr. Drew was soooo professional. We met and hashed out details a month before my wedding. He completely planned out the itenerary and timeline for the reception which took something off my plate. He completed all the little tasks I requested flawlessly! All my guests loved his voice! He was fun, charismatic, and very easy to work with! I will definitely be using him again should I need DJ services and will always drop his name to anyone I know who needs a DJ!

Chris was professional through all the catering process of my parents 50th wedding anniversary. We had to make several changes to the venue (church service and reception were in the same space). He was on the phone with me and then on conference call with my father a couple times listening to and making changes to accommodate last minute venue arrangements. The food was delicious!! Everyone raved about the lasagna but the chicken fettuccine alfredo was also delicious! I like the spring mix salad that was served with the food :-) I would highly recommend Everest Catering!

Although they showed up on time and took good pictures, we still have not received all of the items that was promised to us 2 weeks after our wedding date on 10/28. I have been patiently waiting for Eileen to deliver all of what she had promised and we still have not received everything and it's 12/4. After waiting patiently for Eileen to deliver the finished product, I expressed my disappointment as a customer in a professional way however Eileen called me back yelling, screaming and hung up on me. Very unprofessional and we will not use her service again!

I hired Stephen to take pictures at my daughter's wedding reception and I could not be happier with the service that he provided. He was punctual and so friendly. He made everyone feel so comfortable and took an enormous amount of pictures. His attitude was the best, even though he was pulled all different directions for pictures, he stayed cool and was nice to everyone. He even took videos of some important moments. He stayed pass the time that he was supposed to, to make sure he captures all the last moments of the bride and groom and the party. I strongly recommend him for any event.
