Fantastic. Nicole and Chris are exceptional. They are personable and professional. They used very high quality equipment and their years of experience to film and edit an amazing promo video for me (you can see if yourself at katiebradythemusiclady.com) Really I can't recommend them high enough. They are worth the money!

We decided to hire Steven Grossman to film our wedding at The Casino in San Clemente, CA on July 8, 2016 and we were so happy we did! We just wanted the raw footage without editing and it was very affordable. We had the hard drive within days of our wedding. Steve did an awesome job with capturing every little detail including all of our ceremony, the grand entrances, the speeches, cake cutting, bouquet and garter toss, tons of dancing, and more. The guests hardly knew he was there, but when they did, he was so kind and helpful. Even leading up to the wedding, Steve was very easy to communicate with, even though we never met before the wedding day! I would absolutely recommend Steve for anyone looking to get an unforgettable video of your big day! Thank you again!

Total Thumbs UP to the Video that was taken for my mom's 90th Birthday celebration. Nino was awesome, he recorded everything that we requested. The editing was perfect. During the evening we showed a montage and Nino recorded the slide presentation and it turned out perfect on the DVD. I will definitely use Thumbs Up whenever i have a need for video recording. My family said that this was the best recording and editing that they have ever seen! Thanks Thumbs Up for an amazing job and capturing every moment of this special evening :) The Gonzales' and Villa's

We had an outstanding experience with DH Media Productions. They have professional sound and video equipment, so the sound quality was excellent and even captured the voices of our most quiet speakers. They are extremely professional and effective at communication--I enjoyed working with them, and our guests commented at how friendly they were. There editing techniques are great--they put those little bells and whistles into your video that only professionals would think of and be able to do (chapters in your DVD, artistic editing, and so on). I always got timely replies to my emails, and David kept me abreast of their progress. You can trust your experience to DH Media Productions!

I really wanted someone to be able to capture the latin vibes at our wedding last month. We are extremely happy that we made the right choice of going with NewlyWed Cinema! They had experience with Mexican and Latin Weddings and saw that their work was perfect for what my husband and I wanted. Luis Angel was punctual and patient with all of wedding day craziness and our big family expectations. We love that he made an instant connection with my mom and dad by being able to speak Spanish with them. And now after seeing the finished masterpiece of our Wedding Day Film, we are thrilled to the moon and back by how he captured all of the emotions that were experienced on our big day. From my family to yours, do yourself a favor and hire Luis Angel and the Newlywed Cinema team!

Bryan and Diego exceed our expectations on the day of my sister's wedding and delivered a beautiful film quickly. We really loved the social media teaser that we received the day after the wedding to share on Instagram and Facebook. The drone footage they included made for a beautiful image of the venue. I would 100% recommend Intertwine Films.

Josue did awesome on our wedding video. We were actually his FIRST wedding that he did, and right off the bat, I knew we made the right choice. Prior to the wedding, he called and asked what we had in mind, and included examples, etc. Then on the day of, he was actually at our venue earlier than what agreed on!! On top of that, he was extremely professional throughout the entire wedding, and courteous to other guests as well. Lastly, the finish product came out amazing!! We have friends all the time ask who did our video and we always recommend Josue and Uncommon Wedding Films.

As a media professional firm, Ascend Media Productions highly recommends Since 1987 Films for wedding videography.

A quick read of their reviews tells that story, and it's plain to see why so many brides and grooms consider this team to be a part of their family. Ascend Media Productions is proud to partner with Since 1987 Films for their drone imagery needs.

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.

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.  

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. 

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
