Brad is top notch. My wife and I hired him this past Saturday for our wedding. He was on time stayed a little extra and exceeded our expectations. He is a real artist. He is so instinctively quick and able to capture moments. He also has a strong crew. We opted for photos and video with Brad. We had children in our wedding party whom Brad photographed vivid and candidly. If anyone is in the market for a wedding photographer hire Brad on our recommendation, he could not have done a better job. Pure EXCELLENCE! Irene and Mark

Joe was the videographer of our wedding ceremony. He was easy and fast to communicate with before the wedding day. The day of the ceremony he arrived on time and found our wedding coordinator easily. He also congratulated us after the ceremony which was very nice of him and unexpected. Joe's prices were very reasonable and he had our video edited and mailed to us in 4 weeks. We love our video and can't wait to watch it in 50 years! Highly recommend! :)

I had a very good experience with Jason. My father and I hired him to video my wedding. Jason was on time with everything and very easy to work with, not to mention was very affordable. My favorite thing that Jason did was that he had a hilite video of the wedding 3 days after the wedding so I was able to share and see some of the video right away! I will definitely be using him again in the future and would definitely recommend him

ROF Industries headed up by Nicole Pittman-Staab and Chris Staab are videographers/photographers who created a wonderful presentation of an aerobatic jet flight I participated in over Southern California. They were able to set up numerous cameras, recorded the event from visually interesting angles, provided editing, musical scoring and conducted interviews with the participants in a documentary style video. The quality of the work was outstanding, ahead of schedule, and the crew at ROF are self motivated. They were always checking up on things and asking questions to make the product the best it could be for me. Everything went perfectly and better than I imagined. I'm very proud of their work and they made me feel and look like a star. They are very easy to work with, friendly and just plain nice! I am planning another doozy of a project for them next year and I wouldn't consider anyone else but them to pull it off.

Steven was the videographer for my wedding at the Biltmore Hotel in Los Angeles in December 2013. He was a please to work with, fair to deal with, loves his job and sincerely wants the bride and groom to love their video. He is also fast. I got my video shortly after my wedding and my husband and I were very happy with the video. Thanks Steve! Love, Ronda & Calvin

Palo and Alex were our wedding videographers and put together an amazing edit! It was super easy working with them leading up to our big day and the day-of. They're fun people and got along well with our photographers and other vendors. We received our deliverables ( + raw footage) within reasonable amount of times. HIGHLY recommend them for any wedding. Your wedding day really is a blur, and we were more than happy with our decision to go with Palo to capture all the feels of the day/night.

My wife and I hired Laura and Erica at The Vision Field to be the videographers at our wedding and it ended up being one of the best decisions we made throughout our entire lengthy wedding planning process. First of all, Laura and Erica were an absolute pleasure to work with. They were always extremely quick to respond to all of our questions whether they be related to the type of equipment they would be using or the type of videography we wanted them to capture. During our planning meeting with them over the phone they also knew how to ask us all the right questions in order to make sure they would provide us with exactly the type of service we were expecting. And they were always happy and full of energy, which somehow made us even more excited for the big day as it approached. When the wedding day came they arrived early and were fully prepared with all of their equipment. Our ceremony was at a Catholic church, our reception was in the backyard of a private residence, and we stopped for wedding party photos at a third location in between, and throughout all of this movement Laura and Erica were always able to keep up with the group without us having to worry about them. What actually made us most happy with The Vision Field, in fact, is how they managed to capture every single important moment of our wedding day without ever distracting or getting in the way of us or any of our guests. We hardly noticed that they were there at all, and yet they still ended up delivering incredible footage that perfectly captured every aspect of our ceremony and reception. Whenever my wife and I relive our wedding memories by watching and listening to all the high-quality video and audio, we feel as if we're still there, and in this way Laura and Erica have made our wedding last forever. They're not only videographers and photographers but also musicians and audio engineers, and they therefore know exactly how to record and deliver a perfect product package. We certainly made the right choice by asking The Vision Field to be there with us on our big day and we're thrilled with all that they have done for us. They are good people and experienced professionals, and we fully recommend that you choose to work with them too!

We are so happy with our wedding photos (all 351 of them) and our wedding video. Our family and friends commented on how they watched it over and over again and how Jonas and Tatiana captured a feeling of love at the event. They came to our venue in Monterey and scouted the venue before our event, so that on day of the wedding they were very prepared to capture our day. They were responsive to all our questions and took in consideration all the things we wanted in our video. We just absolutely love how it turned out. Thank you guys :)

If you are looking for a one-stop shop for your wedding, look no further. My experience with LadyMarry was unforgettable and I cannot thank them enough, I highly recommend them. Had my pre-wedding photos & wedding day (big day bundle) done by them and it was beautiful. I did my research and compared countless wedding services around Los Angeles and LadyMarry came out on top. Not only was the price ultra-competitive, but also the quality is next to none. I am so glad I choose LadyMarry for my pre-wedding photos and wedding day DJ, coordination, officiant, photo, video, decor and makeup.

I’m going to be honest, I didn’t want to hire Rolling Tide at the beginning. In fact I didn’t want to hire any videographer. Our wedding was so expensive all ready and I didn’t want to pay someone for a video we would watch once in our lives. But my now wife convinced me, and I’m so glad she did! We’ve watched our highlight video at least 20 times since we got married last year. Dan and his team are incredible at putting so much art into something so simple. They were also extremely professional during the entire process from planning, to do the day of the wedding, and up to delivery! Thanks so much guys!

My husband and I interviewed 4 wedding video vendors. Our wedding planner insisted we use one of his people. We went with our own and Bryan was one of our best wedding videographer decisions. I am so glad that we decided to hire a professional videographer like Bryan for our wedding! It was well worth the money and I would recommend him to any bride-to-be. The film was wonderful and did a great job at capturing all the special moments on our wedding day. Your wedding day is an investment and among the many things, it is certainly an investment in memories.

We couldn't have been happier hiring William Ferguson with Key Moments Videography & Photography to shoot our wedding! Wil was super easy to work with, accommodating, and best of all, gave us options to fit within our budget. We would definitely recommend Key Moments to anyone planning an event or looking to capture something special!!

My wife and I were getting married in March of 2013. The wedding preparations and schedule were hectic. As the day got closer and closer, the anticipation was killing me!!! Then came the day of the wedding. I met Deyo and Kyle as they spent the beginning of the day with my bride and I. In my head, these were the guys that were going to capture my wedding on video for the rest of eternity. These would be the guys that would create the film that my wife, my future children, my friends and family would view 10, 15, 20, 50 years from that day. Deyo was with me in my ready room as I was getting ready. He made the experience easy as he asked me questions about how I met my wife, when we met, where we met and so on. He took my mind off of the anticipation of the day. Throughout the ceremony and reception, they were in the background taking pictures, videos and editing the entire time. When I checked on them throughout the reception (because I wanted to make sure that everyone at the event was okay and having a good time) they were working tirelessly on our video. According to my wife, Kyle was with her keeping her calm, making her laugh and recording the day of the event. Towards the end of the reception, the video was ready for our viewing pleasure. My wife and I have LARGE families. We've been to many many many weddings. The video that Deyo and Kyle put together for us made our wedding. They captured the emotion, the anticipation, the feelings that my wife and I were both feeling all throughout the planning, throughout the months of waiting and finally throughout that day. The music, the scenes, the video they captured... I still don't know how to say thank you enough to District 12 Films. They're innovative in their craft and bring a rare level of professionalism that is really hard to find when dealing with people that you barely know. On our once in a lifetime event, they made the day even more memorable. To this day, when our family, friends and us watch the video that they created for us, it brings us back and puts tears in our eyes and smiles on our faces. I know that sounds cheesy, but it is absolutely true. Thank you again guys!!!!

Joseph was extremely professional and our video turned out ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. During our wedding, hardly anyone even noticed we had a videographer because he was very discrete and not disruptive at all. Very professional and timely as well. Our video turned out better than I could have ever expected and it captured our day so well. The quality of the editing and the music choice exceeded our expectations! I would highly recommend hiring him for your wedding or any other event!

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.
