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.

I was married last April and we decided to go with Normscar Productions to capture our video footage. We were extremely happy with the results. For starters, Sean was super creative and talented! He was also very personable and down to earth, so we felt very comfortable with him. My husband is a musician, and he wanted to turn some of the footage into a music video using the song he wrote for me. Let me just say, the music video turned out amazing!!! He was able to capture key moments and arrange them perfectly to tell our story from beginning to end. All of our friends said that the video was the coolest thing they've ever seen! He was also very fair in pricing and efficient in giving us the finished product in a timely manner, which was an extra plus! I highly recommend Normscar to capture your event, you won't be disappointed!!! ~Jennifer J.

I can't rave enough about how wonderful Anthony and Cultura Productions is to work with. From scouting the location in advance, to speaking directly to our officiant to make sure he was comfortable with the mic, Anthony made the documentation of our wedding day a breeze. After months of planning a wedding and the many stressful decisions we had to make, knowing that we had an organized, communicative, and talented videographer in place gave us the opportunity to sort out other challenges and ultimately, focus on enjoying our wedding day. Throughout the day and night, I never had any doubt in my mind that Anthony missed something. Each moment that was so important to us that day, planned and unplanned, Anthony was there to capture. He was always two steps ahead of where to be and what to capture. I also had multiple guests comment that they didn't event notice that he was there. The way he films and moves while filming made it easy for him to capture each and every special moment, without getting in the way or blocking any views or guests. Leading up to our wedding day, Anthony was very easy to collaborate with and he was very open to listening and understanding what we were looking for. This was a challenge we had dealing with other vendors, but with Anthony, this was never a concern. When it came to delivering the final product, Anthony was timely in his editing and when watching the video I felt like I was able to relive all of the wonderful memories and emotions of the day. The final video did more than show the main events of the night, it told the story of the day, and our love for one another. After watching, there wasn't a single thing that we would change about the video. The varied shots, the audio quality, the music he selected, it was all perfect. If you are looking for a videographer, I would highly suggest working with Cultura Productions. His work is worth every penny and I am forever thankful for the keepsake he has created for my family.

This is the real deal. Impressive results, turnaround and the biggest bang for your buck! It's clear to see, or in my case hear, Cranera's cutting edge talent that takes media to a much more creative yet refined level. I'm very happy with the polished and professional output of my audio recording. Thank you!

Don't be fooled by the whole "home studio" setup... Micah understands his craft and his equipment. He did an excellent job putting together an audition video for bass trombone...not the easiest of instruments to capture. Could he use more space? Sure, your not gonna drop a chamber orchestra in his studio...but if you need high quality recording in a budget...I think this is a he placed to go. And I'll be back.

Bill has an aptitude for aesthetics and understanding clients that makes him stand out from the thousands of freelance editors on the Internet. He pays close attention to what you say during consultation sessions and tries to capture the essence of your requests in his designs. In other words, he doesn’t just create something that looks visually pleasing, but he also makes sure that it reflects the values of your projects. A versatile editor with experience using AVID, Final Cut Pro, After Effects, Photoshop and a variety of other 3rd party software, Bill would be a great hire for any job.

It's really simple actually - I love what I do and as a result I put a lot of effort in every aspect of any production. It really doesn't matter if it's visual or audio only. When someone really cares about their clients and love what they do from the start - the minor details all add up and show the difference between a "paid for production" and a real quality production.

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.
