Roger did a great job on our testimonial video. He took creative license and really made our customer and our product shine! He thought outside the box, and selected some unique visuals to help guide future customers to our company and our products. Most importantly, our client appeared happy, relaxed, and very pleased with her purchase. I would recommend this videographer for your project!

Brighton was the videographer for our wedding in December 2016. He was absolutely wonderful! Very easy to work with, flexible, and was always accessible when I had questions during the process. He put no "time limit" on the day. He arrived to the venue hours early to begin filming and was there until our sparkler exit that night. He is VERY reasonably priced compared to other videographers I found during my search. He provided us with a wonderful highlight video AND all the raw footage from the day (which I found most videographers won't do). He didn't have a second shooter, but when you look at the video you would think he did! He captured so many aspects of our day without any problem. Having a wedding video is a must! You will regret it if you don't. I highly recommend Brighton!

Joshua is professional, experienced, patient and kind! We are so thankful that he was available to shoot our wedding and share our special day. We couldn't be happier with the results! Videographers can capture your wedding in a way that still photography only barely scratches the surface. We absolutely love the video from our wedding and will enjoy it for years and years! Thank you Joshua!!!!!

When we first began getting serious about planning for a wedding, we had decided not to have a videographer. We decided to just have a photographer and that we'd just have the pictures. Unfortunately, just a few months before our wedding, my husband to be's grandmother got very sick, and it was not looking good. We then decided that we should do a video so that we could at least send it to her to watch. I started searching far and wide for a videographer, which was a sudden added, and unexpected expense; since we had a tight budget of $8000 for the wedding and the honeymoon; and most of it had already been paid. I ran across thumbtack, and I found Alexander, Yellow Dart Films. I explained exactly what I was looking for, and exactly what I could do financially, and he definitely delivered above and beyond our expectations. Alexander has a great personality and fit right in with the guests at our wedding. In fact, he definitely became a dear friend of ours by the time all the festivities were squared away. When we received our video, and watched it for the first time, it was really great! It was above and beyond what I had expected to receive for my budget, and choosing Alexander was a fantastic choice. Unfortunately, my husbands grandmother passed away before the wedding, but we do have a lasting live memory to take us back when we are old and gray. Alexander took into account all of my wants, and concerns, and made it happen. Thank you, Yellow Dart Films. -Julia & Nicholas, Wedding Date: July 1, 2017

    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.

        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.
