These guys are the best! They are professional, artistic, reliable and fun! I loved the video and the still photos they delivered. They were easy to make arrangements with, showed up on time, and had my video and photos delivered to me electronically and by DVD via the mail. You can't find a better to team to capture your wedding!

I planned a surprise engagement for my gf and hired joe last minute. I read his reviews and his package pricing was absolutely unbeatable. Unfortunately we had a last minute change of venue due to weather. Joe was able to change venues and plans without skipping a beat. Because it was a surprise he was excellent about staying below the radar and she never had a clue. He was on time, friendly, dressed appropriately, and absolutely amazing. We are waiting on our final video and pictures which I'm sure is going to turn out amazing! I would hire joe again without a second thought. We will most likely use joe for our wedding too! I honestly couldn't have asked for any better.

I first hired her to video my father's funeral because my Aunt & Sister could not attend. I was expecting a straight reel, nothing extraordinary as it was a solemn occasion. She made the most memorable "movie" for me that I still watch to this day for comfort. It was just remarkable. She was professional and punctual and creative. We then hired her for our wedding reception video. Again, another fantastic video job with the "movie" she put together of the event. Such thoughtful moments she captured from the obvious to the fine details. Again, punctual & professional. Highly recommend her services. Everyone loved both videos.

JOB: Videography of Large Live Multi-Artist Concert Event (incl Pre-Show / Concert / Post-Show). As a first time client of Chris O/Attis Videography Services, I couldn't have been more pleased from introductory contact to receiving the completed raw video footage (Attis creative editing to follow). An entertainment professional and concert event producer myself, all the essential qualities I know that identify 'top notch, top quality' professionalism and services, Chris O/Attis possesses - excellent customer service, continuous communication and follow-thru throughout the entire process (pre-event prod/planning/prep to event completion), very caring / conscientious / courteous / ez personality to work with, very thorough and anticipatory attention to detail w/ every aspect of the event (left nothing to question), always punctual (or even slightly ahead). In my business, the options of video / tech svcs are many and 'promise or talk a good talk'. Chris O/Attis is the real deal, 'walks the walk & the talk'! I will use Chris O/Attis services again and highly recommend Attis to anyone needing top quality professional videography svcs ~ S. Dadas, Founder / Owner / Artist / Producer SD ENTERTAINMENT

Mark is amazing! He was our wedding videographer and we could not have been more pleased. He is extremely professional and responsiveness, and so great to work with. The wedding video came out perfect. We provided zero direction and he captured all the details and took us right back to all the incredible feelings of the day. Mark is a true professional and incredibly talented. We will certainly use him for any video services we will need in the future and would highly recommend him.

Erica and Laura filmed our live band performance in front of an unexpectedly big crowd of over a thousand. They were able to capture both the band and audience and hooked into the sound equipment to get a professional sound to the audio. We were thrilled with the video footage and very happy with their reasonable fees. They were a pleasure to work with!

They won't disappoint.

We had Daniella Hovsepian as our wedding videographer for our wedding in early October in San Diego. We were impressed with the clips that she provided and she was very very easy to work with and super responsive. We waited too long to line up a videographer - but luckily we found Daniella through Thumbtack just a few weeks before the wedding - and she was available. Her prices were very reasonable, especially considering that it involved a long drive to get to our wedding. Once she was onsite - she seemed to fit effortlessly in alongside the other wedding vendors - coordinator, photographer, caterers, etc. - and needed very little guidance from me or anyone else to do her work. It was nice to have someone who so easily navigated a rather intimate gathering (our wedding was about 65 guests), and on her own intuition, captured so many nice personal moments for us. It was thrilling for us to look through the video. We were on a tight budget so didn't have her do a highlights trailer - but if you have the option highly suggest doing this! Her smile and pleasant demeanor show that she really enjoys what she's doing - and I could tell that helped people open up and just go on about their business while she did her filming, so she was able to capture some candid moments. Added bonus - she delivered the videos quickly!

Merve has been absolutely incredible to work with. Not only was she on time, professional, kind, and gracious during our entire actual filming process, she has done nothing short of incredible editing for our promo video. We are super picky, and were concerned about looking good on camera, but Merve knew exactly the lighting to use with us, and was super receptive to all of our requests. The video is amazing and we will absolutely be working with her for all of our videos moving forward. Totally exceeded all of my expectations.

It's been so GREAT working on my music video with someone of Fumihiro Hirota's talents, experience, enthusiasm, and reliability! He's truly done it ALL for me on this project -- filmed the video in multiple shoots, expertly edited it, communicated & collaborated with me always in a timely/professional way, given me great advice on how best to share my work in the online world, etc. I consider myself quite lucky to have found him, I couldn't be happier with the final product he's given me, and I very highly recommend Mr. Hirota's services at Media Focus to anyone interested in working with the BEST in the business!

I would highly recommend these photographers. They were very organized and thought of details that I did not. I love every one of my wedding photos! They captured so many amazing moments that weren’t planned but were my favorite parts of such an important day. Like when my mom pretended she couldn’t button my dress, and when my husband slipped me away into the back room for a private dance. The best part of these moments was that I was completely unaware that I was being filmed. I’m not a person that likes to be in front of a camera. Somehow, they blended in and made my memories last forever.

I honestly cannot say enough wonderful things about Just Love Films. From their positive attitude and professionalism to their stunning talent, I could not have chosen a more wonderful videographer. Our wedding day was stressful from the start, but as soon as Just Love Films got there and started filming video I felt like things were falling into place. I was already assured of Just Love Films considerable talent after seeing videos on their website, which I loved! But when I got the highlights video I was brought to tears. They managed to capture not only the best moments, but the spirit and energy of the best day of my life! Thank you

I am a composer for film and television. I hired V&B Sound to re-outfit my Los Angeles-based studio space before beginning work on a feature film. The owner, Benji, was extremely thorough, knowledgable, and budget-conscious. He put together a full list of gear, sound-proofing materials, and everything I needed. He knows where to save and where to spend, and his experience as a professional musician gives him the expertise to clearly explain and justify his recommendations. What's more, he personally installed as much of the equipment as he was able, and also made sure the rest of it was properly done. I highly recommend Benji and V&B Sound and will be using them for all of my future gear and equipment purchases as well as anything else related to audio and installation.

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.
