West End helped film a music video for me. They were extremely helpful in all ends of production. Very knowledgeable and easy to work with. Not to mention I got a very generous price for hours of green screen work. I have no complaints, and I plan to work with them again.

The JOB: As a bride on a budget, Derek's services were an awesome package for the price. We met at a Starbucks to discuss the logistics of my 2 day wedding event, and how my family wanted the videos to turn out. AWESOME FACTORS: For my American Style wedding Derek was able to put together a beautiful montage with voice overs and gorgeous panning views of the wedding location. His editing abilities and storytelling skills are what drew us to his service in the first place! I loved the montage and got the 3 DVDs for this wedding within 2 months of our wedding date - speedy! For my Asian traditional wedding, Derek and his assistant truly went above and beyond with our 8 Hour package. They were at our church and then the hot dinner banquet - my parents loved the film quality and footage they shot that day. This video editing and everything took a lot of family input and Derek was so great at getting it to what we'd wanted it to be. Also we didn't get our traditional music to Derek in time to get it into the videos but he was able to pull some voice parts to make it work. The only drawback this round, it took much longer to get the DVDs due to edits needed, back and forth emailing, and then our lives getting too busy to follow-up with Derek on somethings - But eventually we got them and are really happy with how it turned out. What could've been better: The DVDs - uses a typical DVD cases with a printout sheet that slides into the case sleeve - I wish the DVDS looked a little fancier instead of like CD burned in the 90's. It doesn't match the quality of the film much. Lastly, I requested the American ceremony be filmed, and the footage was not perfect - filming was not as "magical", sounds and certain things got into the cameraman's frame, etc. but my church ceremony footage was amazing in comparison - so that was really interesting.

    Bryan and his crew videoed my wedding and I couldn't be happier! They showed up before the time suggested (even before I got there) just to get my enterance into the venue. Bryan listened to my ideas, gave me feedback, and volunteered to go out of his way to make my wedding video special and perfect! He stayed at a distance that we didn't even notice him or his crew filming throughout the day, and he kept himself available to me and the groom the full day! Bryan even agreed to stay later when the reception ran late. He also has unbeatable prices! I recommend Bryan and his crew for any special occasion and/or wedding!!!! He also didn't make us wait for our amazing video montage, which for an excited bride is everything!! I will be using him again for other special occasions!

    Blake and Michael were amazing! They traveled all the way from Minnesota to Arizona for my wedding. Very professional and also very fun to work with. From start to finish, we felt that they cared about their work and the result of the video they were filming. We can’t wait to see what the final product is going to look like and we have great confidence that it’ll be fantastic!

      Haberb did a great job of editing the teaser for our documentary in a small amount of time. He also suggested some effects that worked really well. He also set up the recording booth for the voice-over narration and did a masterful job of controlling the volume levels of foreground and background audio. Highly recommended!

        Andrew and Brad were both very professional and awesome! They made us feel comfortable with the amount of space they gave us as they were filming throught the night. The creativeness and originality they showed the video was more than we even thought could be done. They really captured the best moments of the night. We are very impressed and pleased with the video, we highly recommend these guys!

        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.  
        Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
