I enjoyed having Tom and his team for my wedding so much! Very professional and kind. Constantly reminded me that he was there for me, and accommodated every request. Very personable, I felt like Tom was just apart of the family. I would definitely use Tom again, it looks like I may need him in a few months for maternity photos! ;)

Me and my family were flying into California from Atlanta for our wedding and needed a local photographer. Brad was AMAZING!! You can tell he is passionate about what he does and truly cares about capturing the moment for you. He goes above and beyond - He was very patient and worked great with our 4 kids (3,5,6. & 8) Thanks again Brad for all your hard work...

I was fortunate to book Dj Chris for my wedding. We met several times during the planning process, reserved our date and filled out our paperwork. On my wedding day Chris arrived early, ran my wedding on a perfect timeline and keep my guest entertained. His UpLighting made the room look magical and the music was fun and full of energy. We were greeted by a big roar from our guests waving their napkins at the grand entrance and the fun never stopped. Glow sticks were handed out and the dance floor erupted with my guests waiving their hands and jumping up and down. I recommend Dj Chris he is the best and worth every dollar. Kick Ass Mang keep the Good Work Going

The photobooth with video messaging was perfect for our wedding!! Everyone enjoyed the props and having the option to leave a video message for us! Steve was so amazing to work with! He responded to emails quickly and was very helpful. No regrets on hiring him! Only bad part is that me and the groom didn't get to take our own photos in the booth despite the multiple attempts lol. Thank you Steve for everything! We greatly appreciate it!

Chef Boris Guardado and Caroline are incredible! They were highly recommended from a trusted family friend and from our first communication, they were warm, excited for our wedding and extremely professional. It is clear they are very experienced and love good food, but they have a unique ability to translate our tastes into dishes that we would enjoy--from the first tasting to the actual wedding day. During the wedding, everything was prepared and served exactly on schedule, just as it had been prepared for us during tastings. Their team of servers were professional and courteous, well prepared and it was clear that there was clear communication between the kitchen and servers. Our guests gave us extensive feedback on the food itself, commenting that it was a delicious departure from typical wedding fare. The wedding cake was also incredibly delicious. Both the look and the taste perfectly met our expectations. Gourmet Lovers Catering went above and beyond, working with us to achieve the wedding of our dreams and within our budget. They even brought us an anniversary cake on our first year anniversary! We are truly grateful to have been able to work with them and have already recommended to friends without reservation.

Tom was amazing! We had a very small and casual wedding ceremony on our beautiful college campus. I was happy to have found Tom, whose work looked great and whose price was extremely reasonable. Off the bat, his communication was excellent - he responded promptly with a quote, and again responded promptly, politely, professionally, and thoroughly when I had a bunch of questions before hiring him. Since we were coordinating our wedding ceremony from the east coast and weren't able to meet Tom in person, we video chatted a few weeks beforehand to ask him any additional questions and tell him a bit more about the wedding. His contract was very clear and fair. Because of his wonderful communication, I felt very confident before our wedding that working with Tom would work very well despite organizing everything remotely. We worked with Tom for three hours as he photographed our short wedding ceremony, and then took both posed and candid photos of my husband and I together and with our friends and family. On the day of the wedding, Tom arrived there early (before us!). He melded very well to our personalities and style, and I can certainly picture him doing the same with many different types of people. He made us laugh, and he listened to what we wanted and offered his own expertise in terms of poses and locations. The photos themselves turned out really great. He sent us both a link to a website (where photos can be downloaded) and a flash drive, each with full resolution images of every good photo (he takes out any where people are blinking, making weird faces, etc. that you wouldn't want anyway), which ended up being about 200 photos overall for our 3 hours. The photos were ready just two and a half weeks after our wedding, which is sooner than I anticipated. We have a really nice variety of different photos from the day of really spectacular quality. The photos are really flattering, and I can't wait to show them to all of my friends and family and hang them in my house for years to come. Overall, Tom was amazing in every way - communication, price, personality, and quality of photos. I can't believe what an amazing value we got. I would hire him again for any other photography services that I need, and I would certainly recommend him to my friends and family.

Working with Julie was a total breeze, I would recommend her to anyone for makeup! I was searching for a makeup artist for the wedding and stumbled upon Julie's page. I am typically a very low-maintenance type, I don't typically wear makeup during the week, so I just wanted to look like an enhanced version of myself. And, budget friendly was a MUST! Upon first interaction with Julie, I was really amazed by her professionalism. She was ON IT. Count on prompt, detailed responses. She is very open and honest about her product and what my experience with her would be like. She has you fill out a consult form and send looks of makeup you'd like. I was really impressed by the detail- allergies, what your skin type is like, etc. She was also very conscious of my budget and worked with me for what I was looking for. Anyway, we did a trial for the engagement shoot, and spent some time going over looks and trying out shades that worked for my skin. Julie spent SO much focused time on me for my trial. We had a lot of fun working together as she is very easy to get along with. Julie's esthetician background influences her focus on skin. I love how she "pampers" the brides with a special mask before applying the makeup. It really makes your skin glow once all the makeup is done. I've never had my skin look so good! After seeing the engagement photos, I loved the natural look, but wanted a more dramatic look for the wedding. I trusted that she would nail it and she totally did. She made my eyes pop exactly how I wanted them to! I save the best two things for last: 1) We were at the wedding venue from 1:00 pm until 10 pm on an 85 degree day. I spent the entire night after dinner (about 6-10 pm) dancing. So imagine the toll that would take on my makeup. There was a photo taken of me right after and my makeup STILL looked in credible after all that sun and dancing! That was what really sold me on Julie. Not only is the initial product good, but it STAYED good the whole night despite the "wear and tear". That was my biggest "WOW" factor. 2) After the wedding... keep in mind this was well AFTER the wedding. I remembered "hey, Julie knows skincare, maybe she can give me some advice". I sent her a quick email asking about her favorite products and what my skin care goals were, and, in total Julie fashion, I get an incredibly helpful and detailed response for how to take care of my skin! Another big WOW. I couldn't believe how generous she was, even after my event was over. Julie is someone who really cares and is quick and happy to help. Could not recommend her more. Thank you, Julie, for making me look so fly on my special day!

Adriana was very nice when she came over. But for some reason when I asked for the trial for my hair and make up, I was under the impression that I will get both on that day - hair and makeup. But Adriana only does make-up. So we still decided to do it. Since she drove so far to see us. I was looking for more of a natural look, but after the trial my face felt very caky and the foundation immediately got in the creases under my eyes and made me look older. And I didn't like how my eyes looked. My mother-in-law's makeup looked really good though. But we still decided do our makeup ourselves for my boho wedding. But I'm sure she is very good if you are looking for more of a dramatic look.

We needed someone to do stage makeup for my 15 year old and MissO was perfect! She made my daughter look stage ready without the "caked on" look; on the contrary the makeup looked quite natural. She's very professional, friendly and talented and her price point is reasonable. I'd definitely recommend her and am looking forward to hiring her again soon for our family photo shoot.

Everything about Patty is amazing. She did my hair and makeup in a parking lot for my engagement pictures with less than a hour to do it. Not only did she finished before the hour but she super amazing. I already hired and paid for my wedding day make up but if my bridesmaids don't use her I may hire her to hang out at my wedding to make sure I look prefect all day because I liked her so much.

My daughter's one request was to have her wedding video graphed. Brandon answered all my questions, sent me references and was professional. He arrived early, set up and did a tremendous job videoing the wedding and then sending the CD's. We never knew he was there. Guests didn't know either. He fit right in. We couldn't be more pleased.

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.

What is a wedding planner?

A wedding planner is a professional service provider whose job it is to organize and execute all the details of a couple’s wedding. A wedding planner can be contracted at any stage in the wedding planning process to help to any degree the couple is willing to pay for. Wedding planning is similar to event planning in that a planning team handles the coordination of multiple wedding elements including catering, venue, guests, entertainment, decor, transportation and more. Anyone who has ever been involved in a wedding can confirm that wedding planning is hard work. Experience brings wisdom when it comes to avoiding or resolving day-of challenges. There is no legal regulatory body that oversees or certifies wedding planning as an industry. Anyone who chooses can call themselves a wedding planner. When looking for a wedding planner, be sure to read reviews, and make smart hiring decisions by asking about licenses and insurance.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
