I want to Thank Randy Cason with Airshot Production for the service they provided for my family. My sons senior year of football & family portraits was amazing. Being able to capture my son playing football is something that we will always have. Having Airshot Productions come in an capture the game on video & pictures is priceless. Thank you for your hard work to make our memories something we will always have. I love my picture on canvas, it's breath taking. I can't express the warmth, friendly atmosphere that Mr.Cason shows during the photo shoots, to just chatting with our family. Thank you for all your hard work & time you have spent on our family. We will diffidently use your outstanding business again. Thank you, Jena McCamish

Chris did an amazing job at our company's annual award dinner. He took award presentation portraits during the ceremony, worked the crowd to get great pictures throughout the night, and provided video coverage of our entire event. Very quickly afterward, he curated a collection of the best photos (both formal and candid) from our night and created short highlight videos that were perfect for sharing on social media. Chris was highly professional and also very personable, which made our guests comfortable and my night as the event coordinator relaxing and worry free! I HIGHLY recommend him for your event. I really couldn't be more pleased with the experience.

We just got our wedding video back and couldn't be happier with this company! Roger and his team go above and beyond to get amazing shots and it is obvious a lot of time and effort goes into creating the highlight video as well as the video we received of the entire wedding. They really took the time to get to know us as couple and the video is a perfect reflection of us. We will watch this over and over again, I am so glad I have a video of this day to look back on whenever I want. HIGHLY recommend!!

Working with Sam was a wonderful experience! He helped me collect video and photo footage from our corporate locations for a corporate video we're working on. He took time ahead of the shoot to understand our needs, scope, and budget. He was on time, professional, and friendly. He was great at making folks that were scared to be in front of the camera feel comfortable. I would highly recommend him to anyone! A+++

Devon was wonderful to work with on our special photos for my daughters senior year pictures. She is very passionate about her art and it shows. I having been going through all the pictures and cannot find one I don't like. Many people can take pictures with the right camera but Devon's work is not just pictures but true art and passion. I'm so happy I chose her and will use her every chance I get. Thank you so much for the special memories you created.

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.

A really great company. JTPMO Global Agency did a great job! I got 3 social media videos and I love the animation video I got created in 3 foreign languages. I also did a Product Video and an Explainer video for my new book. They did English, Spanish and French for my market. They provide me with the voiceovers, the video script, background music and animation effects!! Everything was done for me and it same me both time and money...I am really happy with my videos and they are getting great feedback from my clients.I know they have a promotion on currently and I encourage you to take advantage and bundle all the services you need into 1 package. They follow an Agile Project Management format since they are a Project Management Company and they limit the number of projects in their production delivery per week . So it depends how soon you act determines if you make the cut-off for weekly delivery list. The process is simple you can also login online and review the status of your projects and they always provide you with updates. I love their format and it makes it simple for you to provide your sign off and approve your final work before video production. Yeah.. money well spent!

My husband and I would highly recommend Paul!! He did such an amazing job at capturing our special day. He was extremely friendly and personable and a joy to have as part of the wedding. Two days before our wedding, we decided to hire a videographer. Paul was available and easy to contact. He made my husband and I feel at ease and took on any role he was asked. He was able to go with the flow of the day and deal with last minute hiccups with ease! After the wedding, he would routinely check in with me to let me know the progress of the video. Now that we have the highlight video, we plan on watching it for every anniversary for the rest of our lives! Such a special memory that we can hold on to forever.

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.
