Mr. Bader is an outstanding photograph and a personable guy. You can talk to him almost about anything, he is extremely relaxing and always prepared. He will make you feel comfortable from the moment you walk in his home, from his outgoing personality to his adorable pet dog. He is patient, calm and you can tell he loves what he is doing. I look forward to using Mr. Bader again and would recommend him to almost anybody that needs a professional photographer. Sincerely, Harris Christos

After interviewing multiple photographers, we felt that Marion's credentials and personality were the best fit for us. She offered a great package for 4 hours of wedding photography. She arrived on time, was prepared, and had pictures ready in the quoted time frame. We felt like she really understood what we wanted for photos and made us feel completely at ease. Leading up to the big day, she was professional, attentive, and asked a lot of good questions in regards to what we were looking for. Pictures were beautiful!We would definitely hire her again!

I have worked with many photographers in my career...but none have been as professional as Jack. I had eight doctors in need of multiple head shots. With their professional work schedules so packed, I had limited time to get this accomplished. In one evening, Jack performed a miracle. Eight doctors now have multiple head shots that are in a word - fabulous! Jack prepared individual websites for each doctor to review their photos. I cannot wait to work on my next campaign with Jack. I know it will be a great experience.

Meredith did an incredible job! She works very well with babies; very patient and gentle. She was very professional and took her time. She did not appear fixated on the time like most photographers can be. And, most importantly, the pictures turned out fantastic!! Such a great service for the price.... Will definitely be contacting her in the future. :)

Adrian was great to work with! All of our "requested photograph shots" were done plus more! Adrian and the additional photographer did a great job moving around the room, capturing the event as well as quickly following up with the link to the gallery to see the photos taken. I will be using Adrian T. Baird Photography for our other events and would recommend them for yours as well!

My husband and I really loved the videos Chris made for us! Both the highlight film and full length had their own unique qualities. We also appreciate that Chris gave us the option to choose the song we wanted for the highlight film. Not all videographers do that. What I, Miranda, personally loved about Chris is how easy it was to talk to him, and how comfortable I felt with him around. I never felt uncomfortable or awkward, even during the getting ready shots, and that was the first time I had met him in person. He was a perfect gentlemen and I’m grateful he was there. Here’s a few detailed shots that I screenshot straight from the videos he created of our day! Do know that he communicates as often as you reach out. Sometimes I worried that we hadn’t been in touch more before the wedding, but I recognized that it was because there wasn’t anything we were waiting for or that was pending. We were that well prepared. Besides, he always responded promptly when I did reach out, so communication isn’t an issue. We highly recommend Chris!

Working with Rita on this photo shoot was a fun project. After sifting through other photographers I settled on Rita because of her experience and her personality. I really mean this when I say it but I wanted someone who is going to listen to what I wanted to do and yet still add ideas to my existing project to make it even better I was amazed at her equipment the camera and the lens ..all the photo light equipment she had and the photo shooting process was very easy and smooth In my industry many of us use stock photos taken from catalogs and other online sites but I wanted something that was unique and different that set me apart from what other people in the industry have. Rita came up with a lot of good ideas and different angles for shooting my product line I want to say that this project really pleased me and I am happy about it and I'll be using Rita again as I introduce new products to my online site All in all I give Rita two thumbs up

I felt that working with Rhonda from Faux Picasso Photography exhibited all the professional qualities I was seeking. She was very quick to respond to my questions and needs. She worked with our family in a professional manner and was punctual, being mindful of our time even when getting all adult children to location was not timely. But she made it work and we love our family photos! Thank you Rhonda!

Andi was our wedding photographer and she did a great job! We received her photos quickly after the wedding was over, and the quality was that of a pro. We had a lot of family photographers at the wedding, but you can definitely tell a difference from their photos and Andi's. Thanks Andi! You rock!

I recently moved to Durham and we were in search of a professional photographer to take some pics for our family gathering. I approached this guy through one of my friends and I found this guy passionate about photography. I asked him to do a trial shoot and I like the way of perfection and commitment to his work. He would be our primary choice for any family gatherings and any household functions. I would definitely recommend this guy for any photography sessions you would like to have.

Carly literally agreed to video our wedding 2 days before the date as I suddenly panicked and realized I didn't want to go without a video. Even though it was such short notice, she showed up with a 2nd videographer in tow and didn't miss a beat! She asked what little details I wanted captured and what type of video I wanted which meant a lot to me as I didn't want a big dramatic, hollywood type video. I hardly had time to talk to her throughout the day, and when I apologzied at the end of the night for not being more attentive, and she said that that's what we were supposed to be doing, having fun! This made me so happy because I knew that she was getting real moments captured, not just poses and forced shots. I am so grateful that Carly was able to make it up to Flagstaff on such short notice, I know I would've truly regretted not hiring her and her team!

James was an awesome photographer to work with! He was easily accessible and easy to communicate with. We connected on Thumbtack, through email, Instagram (he keeps in touch as a follower!), and eventually cell phone. He is very willing to work with his clients; He has very reasonable prices for many hours of coverage, and will drive to a destination location shoot because he loves what he does. He was very punctual with communication and planning, and arrived early to our event. He is based in the Mesa, AZ area but drove to northeast Phoenix for us, and central Phoenix for a shoot after us. His eye for photos is very unique and candid. I love candid! He captured real emotion and motion while still photographing me and the other members in my party from flattering angles. My FAVORITE part was his unique perspective, which made the photos appear to the viewer as if they were in the room with us (which was wonderful for our elopement ceremony since in fact our families were not present). He was very fun to work with; he was very energetic and outgoing, easily fit right in with our group and our feeling comfortable with him, and funny. He came prepared with jokes to help get some real laughs in our photos. I feel our quirks came out very natural with him. I love his framing in some shots, where he blurred foliage from the foreground. I also love the tones of the edits, very vivid and sharp. He was also EXTREMELY quick at returning the gallery of edited photos to me. That is so rare and I appreciated it immensely! I would definitely recommend James as a photographer for events, like weddings, elopements, and couples photos. His Instagram (jameslee101) also features some beautiful portraits, and macro-shots.

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.

Lamar is a fantastic photographer and a wonderful person to do business with. He does a great job of making sure you're comfortable and getting the full value of the session. Not only is he extremely talented, he is timely when it comes to receiving the pictures. I had Lamar for both maternity and newborn pictures, and it's safe to say I will be calling him again for more family photos! Loved every minute of both sessions and the final products. Such a laid back guy, definitely gets the job done well!

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.

How much does it cost for a photographer for a wedding?

Finding the right wedding photographer can make a big difference for your ceremony. Nationally, the average wedding photographer’s price ranges from $800 to $1,000, but costs can be much higher in areas like Chicago, New York or Los Angeles where some couples spend $2,000 to $5,000 or more for the photographer they want. Factors that can affect your wedding photographer prices include the photographer’s reputation and experience. Heavy hitters can command top rates, especially during wedding-season weekends. Day of the week also affects your cost. You may get a $200 discount on wedding photographer prices if you get married on a Friday in November rather than a Saturday in June. Time onsite is also an important cost factor. Hiring a photographer to snap photos from the moment you wake up until after last call at the reception is going to cost more than five hours of pictures during the day. Multiple photographers, special lighting, and videography will also increase your costs. Ultimately you want to find someone who has a style you love and can provide the number of edited shots you want for a price you can handle. Learn more about hiring a wedding photographer.

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. 

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
