Brighton came in and directed and edited a beautiful video for an important university presentation we were giving. All of us were amateurs and had no prior acting experience, but Brighton made us all comfortable and provided us with great advice for ways to improve our individual parts of the video. Recording that video was one of the most fun things I have gotten to do at the University of Alabama and that is all due to Brighton's expertise.

Bill did a wonderful job shooting my photos and videos for my fashion blog at Huntsville's Big Spring Park. Even though it was a super cold and windy January day, he still remained professional, and the photos and videos turned out amazing! I would definitely book him again next time I am in town!

Mike has taken video, still photos and even sat in on guitar a time or two with me, and I can not stress enough how professional, gifted, and friendly he is. His photos and video work are absolutely world-class, and he has always given a fair price for his excellent work. Understands the technology as well as the art of photography. Highly recommend! - Jackson Gibson, musician

I have been very impressed with Digital Motion. I had a very large program with multiple concurrent venues, each requiring different specifications and Digital Motion performed seamlessly to provide exceptional service and a very successful outcome. Specifically, the recordings were of outstanding audio quality with high intelligibility and accuracy and video content that had remarkably sharp resolution providing viewing that was both accurate as well as enjoyable. I would have no hesitation in recommending them highly for even the most complex project and will most certainly use them for my future events.

    Drew did several videos for our law firm. Many were informative videos for the type of work we do and then Drew did a promotional video for our firm. The quality of the videos were excellent, and he captured in images what we wanted to portray about our firm.

    I loved working with Jason! The videos were INCREDIBLE!! I had the package with the highlight video, the ceremony video, and the "best of" reception video. I am so happy with this package. It had everything that I wanted. His prices are hard to beat, especially considering the amount of content! Plus the quality for that price is unheard of. He has amazing attention to detail, and his personality made the day so much fun. He was so helpful through the whole process (before the wedding, at the wedding, and after the wedding). He made everything easy, and he kept in contact with us through everything. On top of all of that, he was so complimentary, which everyone in my family noticed. I would highly recommend Jason to anyone!

    I have worked with Ted several times on video edits. He knows his stuff, his rates are fair and he is easy to work with. Those are just the attributes I want. We have had some very tight deadlines occasionally but he ALWAYS gets the job done on time and on budget. I highly recommend him.

    We were introduced to Cherie by a mutual friend. We were in need of someone to film our wedding. Cherie was great from day one. She was very receptive to our ideas, but also provided the professional insight of an experienced videographer. Our final product was outstanding. We have received nothing except positive comments. Cherie Olivier Video and Photography is the way to go.

    Kyle Roberts / N.L.P. is a BARGAIN for the level of high quality production value for the money. Expertise, equipment, experience second to none. I wish ALL companies I deal with operate with this level of professionalism. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND N.L.P. for any video, editing, production or related need you may have. No need to look further !!!!

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    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 do you choose a wedding videographer?

    A wedding videographer will create a lifetime memory for you from edited video footage of your wedding day, ceremony and reception. Choosing a wedding videographer starts with looking online at portfolios of their past work. There’s no need to talk to anyone unless you love what you see. Next, make sure they have good reviews and past client experience; don’t be shy about asking for references if there aren’t any posted online. When you find someone who has a style you love, ask if they are available on your wedding day. If so, it’s time to talk pricing. Be clear about your maximum budget, and ask what kind of packages they offer. Pricing will depend on the number of crew needed for filming, the hours they are required to be onsite, post-production editing, and the length of the final product. Talk with several wedding videographers to get a feel for what prices are like in your region. Nationally, the average cost for wedding videography ranges between $990 and $1,260 per event. Once you agree on a product and have a plan, get everything in a written and signed contract. Clearly state the details of what is expected for your wedding day and from the final product. Be prepared to pay a deposit to reserve their services for the day, then pay the remainder upon receiving the video.

    What should you ask your wedding videographer before hiring?

    Finding the perfect wedding videographer doesn’t have to be stressful. Asking a few key questions upfront will help you find the right fit for your big day. Before talking with wedding videographers, research their work online. Look at their websites, business profiles and social media, and see what their finished wedding videos look like. If the style fits what you’re envisioning, it’s time to reach out. During initial contact, make sure you get along with the person. This is important since they’ll be interacting with you and your guests.

    Your first question should be about their availability; there’s no point in going further if they’re booked on your wedding day. Ask to see references if they’re not readily available online. Next, it’s time to talk about money. Ask how they determine rates or what kind of packages they offer. When you settle on a rate and the services you want, make sure to have a written contract that outlines everything, including cost, length of time they film, what post-production will include, and when you can expect to receive the edited project.

    How much is videography for a wedding?

    Wedding videography is one thing many couples regret not paying for. It may seem like just another expense during wedding planning, but it’s really special to have a moving memory of your big day. The national average cost for wedding videography is $990-$1,260. Pricing can vary depending on wedding length, special film features, the amount of editing required, and how many videographers are needed to cover the event. Many videographers offer packages that provide different levels of service. A very simple wedding documentary could be $600 or more, while a full-scale cinematic experience involving multiple videographers could be $2,500 or more. Here’s an example of average package pricing:

    • Package 1: $1,400
      • Footage during and after the ceremony, including highlights requested by the couple.
      • Two cameras with audio equipment.
      • DVD including a 3- or 4-minute edit to a song of the couple’s choice and a 45- to 50-minute raw edit covering the entire event.
      • Recordings of guests’ good wishes to the couple.
    • Package 2: $1,800
      • Includes everything from Package 1, plus an additional videographer (2 total) and aerial videography.  

    When do you pay your wedding videographer and wedding photographer?

    Most wedding videographers and photographers require a set deposit when you hire them. Wedding season is a busy time and a deposit secures that vendor’s services for your wedding date. It also protects the vendor if the couple changes their mind at the last minute, and they can’t find a new booking and lose work for the day. The deposit may be anywhere from 20 percent to  50 percent of the agreed-upon total price. Always get a written confirmation that your deposit has been received.

    The remainder of the wedding videography and photography bill may be due in the week before to your wedding or on the day of the wedding. Other vendors may require a second payment immediately before the wedding and a third and final payment after the wedding video or photos are delivered. Each vendor has their own policies, so before hiring be sure to read, understand and agree to payment protocols. There is no requirement for tipping wedding videographers or photographers, but if you do want to tip them, the end of the reception is the appropriate time. 

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
