Chris is an amazing videographer and producer. He is very easy to work with, highly professional, and goes above and beyond to deliver exceptional work product. We had shot 2 video testimonials in Phoenix and 2 days before the scheduled shoot one of our clients let us know that her schedule had changed -- she could only do 6am the next morning. Chris rearranged his schedule and came first thing in the morning to do the shoot! The end results were amazing footage and a great final video with music and titles. He delivered the final edits very quickly, and within the timeframe we agreed upon. Chris is very knowledgeable and has quality equipment. He gave great tips for shooting b-roll footage and offered amazing suggestions to help me create a consistent look and feel for all my videos. I was truly impressed. I highly recommend Chris and would personally use him again in the future.

I am so happily pleased with James and the beautiful work he has done for me. Typically camera shy and overly picky, I was surprised to feel immediately at ease with him and his camera - and it shows in the photos. I actually had fun! When it came to photos of my stationery work - I was also impressed and surprised with each and every shot. However, the coup de grâce was the professional video. From a quick turn around to delivery of a product of ridiculous high quality and creativity, I was blown away. Add to all this his genuine and kind nature, and he’s my go-to guy for all things video and photography - for life.

We have had Steve come to our office on four different occasions to take a variety of pictures that we could use in marketing materials, both print and online. The pictures were very professional and included a huge assortment. He also turned them around quickly so that we could meet a couple of our tight ad deadlines. You will not be disappointed.

Superb! John went above and beyond the call of duty for our project. We give him six stars out of five! We asked him to shoot a live presentation. We needed clear video and audio of the presentation to use for other projects. We are extremely satisfied with the result. Pinnacle has earned our highest recommendation.

It was an outright blast working with Dextra Films. It’s always easy working with someone when they have a true passion and love for the work that they do, and Justin is no exception. I wish had the photos from my wedding readily available to share, but they can be found on the Dextra Films Page. I loved how everything turned out. I would highly recommend working with Dextra Films for any of your photo/video needs.

Dorrell Edwards is absolutely the best photographer I have ever encountered! My husband and I were so pleased with the work he did on our engagement and wedding photos. Our wedding video was elegantly exquisite, I show it off every chance I get. Dorrell is very fun to work with and has a lot of great ideas and best of all his quality of work is worth every penny! When we have another child, we will definitely be calling Dorrell for our family portraits!

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.

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. 

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.
