To start, BJ is easily one of the most gifted musicians I have personally come across. Not only is he musically inclined creatively, writing and composing music... he's also extremely gifted when it comes to the technical side of music and video production and all that is required to achieve a beautifully refined and professional finished project. I have seen and heard quite a bit of BJ's work (both his music and his videos) and can absolutely say he never disappoints. BJ puts his heart and soul into all that he does and when this passion for his craft is combined with his knowledge and years of professional experience in this industry, the end result is ALWAYS AMAZING! I am a fan! Shelly H.

The experience I had with Martedia was awesome! He was able to finish a whole 3 minute music video shoot in one day! His crew was friendly! The equipment he brought was top notch and in the end the whole process was a ton of fun! And only a week later he was able to give me a proof of the video that's extremely quick! So to sum up you should definantly be getting this company to do anything media related because they will get the job done like it supposed to be done!

I worked with a small group of artists on a concepts photography project named 'Pas de Berlin' --the project took fourteen months to complete and we were often in Ande's company. She was an outstanding addition to the project: Ande was professional, kind, funny, upbeat, and did more than just makeup and hair; she had excellent advice and opinions throughout the project on nearly every aspect. She went above and beyond her role as MUAH; she filmed, edited, and shared a video promo of the project, created with work she captured from behind-the-scenes. Ande was also helpful to me, when it came to wardrobe and concepts; I frequently sought her advice as to line, color, and form and the project came together. Pas de Berlin has been invited to exhibit in five galleries over the last fourteen months, and has been well received from the Central Valley to Los Angeles. We are so grateful to have had the chance to work with Ande, and always look forward to working with her again.

My name is Charlin Neal and I am a professional vocalist residing in Central California. I contracted out Jake Heath of The Angle Creative for a live music video for myself, promoting my Christmas EP entitled Lamb Of God. The video was shot inside the sanctuary of Valley Baptist Church, Olive Drive campus. The Angle Creative is high quality service at an affordable price. The video from start to finish is amazing. The camera work is spot on. Jake was very kind, timely, and was willing to work with whatever ideas I had. I would recommend The Angle Creative to anyone who is in need of photography and videography. Jake gets the job done and he does it very well.

We hired Scout to film our annual conference, and create a highlight video for our website. He did an exceptional job. The turn around time was quick, and the level of work was very high end. We will be hiring him again next year.

    I've been working with Stephen for a couple months now, and very pleased with the overall experience. I've worked with people in the past who "are just trying to make a quick buck," but that's not the case with him. You can tell when people have a passion for music, which makes the experience worth it because they're easy to work with. I never felt "rushed" which is great because I'm able to stay in the relaxed vibe which I need. Definitely recommended.

    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.
