Brad and his team are simply OUTSTANDING! If you're considering a few photo/video professionals, stop and hire Next Level Photo Video. For our wedding, Brad's entire team new exactly how to direct us and the guests when we needed direction and how to blend into the background when it was time to capture those special moments; all with a great attitude and smile. Right away you get the sense that Brad and team truly care about their work and the goal is to turn in timeless memories. I highly recommend Brad and Next Level! Great Job Next Level! Thanks again!

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.

Jami was excited about our project from the beginning and went the extra mile all the way to the end! I was Over The Moon with the results! Not only did she capture the event, she captured the feel of the Roaring 20's right down to the detail of the film style of the day, in our video. We chose to have video and stills and the results were stunning! I can't think of one thing that she missed. Truly amazing and will now be a huge part of my annual party.

My experience with Nicole, Chris and their crew was something I'll always cherish!! They're so professional and thoughtful - it made our special wedding day one we will always remember. ROF as a whole takes their profession to the next level and always looking for ways to expand/improve. They're so genuine and creative - I truly appreciated their service and friendship. I highly recommend them on all levels and wish them nothing but success. Thank you for capturing our day via photo, video, and of course personally, b/c of you, we'll always have something exceptional to look back on and remember!!

Jordan's work is terrific! He sure did a terrific job with my pics. So many of them turned out great, it was hard to choose the final photos. He offered great suggestions on poses and looks. Money very well spent!

5+ stars for Dan! I feel so fortunate to have the opportunity to work with someone as professional as Dan. His equipment is state of the art. He is very creative with the work, and gives excellent suggestions when it comes to both video taping and editing. He has a wide spectrum of technical tools such as templates and special video features. He is really respectful, professional, and overall a great person to work with. I will always hire Dan in the future for any video needs I have (so I selfishly hope he doesn't become too popular)!

Working with Rand has been great! He really elevated the level of quality of our annual event video, from the video quality to the editing and final product. He was extremely easy and professional to work with in this whole process, which made my job easier particularly the day of the event. I would highly recommend Rand for your business video project.

Copro Studios video taped a continuing education meeting for our group and did a great job. He arrived on time, the prices fit our budget and his editing was very well done. During the meeting, we were attempting to broadcast to other locations and ran in to all sorts of technical difficulties - none of which had anything to do with Copro Studios. The difficulties required us to take a break in the middle of the presentation yet the editing done by Copro Studios does not indicate that there was any problems with the presentation. I would highly recommend Copro Studios and plan to use them again in the future.

Steve Grossman videographed our daughter's reception. He did an excellent job. He came early, took the trouble to identify all the family members and patiently video taped all parts of the reception hall and decorations. The video included all his handywork and was excellent. we were very happy with the final DVDs. He was very easy to work with and we would recommend Steve to any one who would like to their memories photographed. Thank you Steve for your wonderful work and for your friendly attitude. - MA

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.

I just worked with Tanya and Latrice at a wedding at the Scripps Seaside Forum in La Jolla. They are both so sweet and great at their job. They were even willing to stay longer to get more video footage of special events for the bride and groom at no cost. I have worked with many vendors and a lot of them were not willing to do more work at no cost. Tanya and Latrice love what they do and it for their passion and it shows.

They are professional and talented. We are still getting compliments on our engagement pictures and wedding video! We can't wait to see our wedding pics. I highly recommend this team. They won't disappoint.

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.

Kyle your creativity and work is amazing. Thank you for capturing this special day for us.

Ivor was the most professional, talented and friendly filmmaker I could imagine working with! He captured every moment of our wedding--everything I missed and everything I wanted to remember! All of my friends and family members said they cried (I definitely did!) watching the video Ivor made of our wedding, it was just like being there all over again! I can't believe how lucky we were to work with Ivor, he is incredibly talented and we would recommend him for any project. Thank you Ivor!

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.
