For as long as I can remember, music brought more color to my life than the coloring books I scribbled in with crayons. With the amount of hours that I stayed home to tinker around with my guitar, it was no surprise that I learned and picked up music faster than my peers. When I saw this art form incorporated into cinematic arts through films and documentaries, I knew that my heart was pulling me towards this field. However, all the blood, sweat, and tears that I dedicated to music certainly did not go to waste. The great knowledge and skills that I acquired from my music teachers as well as my gift in music has allowed me to create visual arts in a completely different level and perspective. Music sets the tone and enhances emotive perception in movies; without a good audiological foundation, making a breathtaking and captivating film is not easy. I am constantly motivated to utilize my abilities and gifts to the maximum to produce the best kind of content that I possibly can. I still remember the feeling of seeing a photo taken on a professional DSLR camera for the first time— a wave of speechlessness and emotion overtook my body. I never thought life could look more beautiful than it already did, and the camera’s ability to do this boggled my mind. I craved to learn more about the way the low aperture made a gorgeous buttery bokeh the subject of the piece. During my freshman year, I had a close friend who was well immersed into photography. One day, he took out his massive, captivating Canon DSLR, and began to take portraits of me. After about five minutes, we ended our mini photoshoot session, and like any other teenage boy, forgot about this and went on with our day. I didn’t give much thought to the pictures he had taken of me until a week or so later when he approached me with my printed photos in hand. The moment I laid eyes on the first few pictures, I was genuinely amazed— not at how I looked in the photos, but the different photography techniques my friend had executed. The perfect mixture of bewilderment and shock was what instantly captivated me into the world of photography. That day when I got home, I looked for my old family camera and began to do research on it. I learned as much as I could about shutter speed, iso, frame rate, aperture, white-balance, etc., and watched as many Youtube videos as I possibly could. My love for this started just with photography, but as I learned how this cooperated with movement and music, videography began to amaze me more and more. Videography took over my world and changed the way perceived the things around me. I never gave much thought about why I loved capturing shots of subjects so much, whether it be through photography or videography— I just did it because it made me the happiest. As time went on and I gained more experience with the cinematic arts, I realized that the reason I want to create artwork for others is that I want others to also experience the great astonishment and wonder that I felt when I first laid eyes on that portrait. The mere idea that I can capture a moment in time and create a medium in which it would be remembered forever still baffles me to this day, and I strive to do this to the best of my ability. Being able to hold something in your hand, whether it be an actual print of a picture or a video through your phone, creates a feeling of security, ownership, and an indescribable bond that one feels with a piece of art. As a creative filmmaker, my goal is to use the ideas that constantly flood into my mind to create works of art that people will be able to treasure in their memories. To do this, I want to be exposed to different areas of film such as the movie, wedding, commercial, and music industry, to name a few. I know that I have a unique way of seeing things in the world, and I want to be able to take advantage of all the mental and physical skills that I have. I not only want to tell my own story, but also want others to be able to tell their story as well.See more

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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 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 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. 

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.

Reviews for Culver City videographers
Michael L.
I'm a singer/songwriter, here writing this review, to let anyone reading this know: What a GREAT experience it's been working with Eddie on a music video for my new single, "Flying." Eddie Jag is sure one very BUSY guy, but even here at holiday time, he was nice enough to fit me -- a first-time client -- into his schedule... then proceed to do nothing less than an OUTSTANDING job filming the video... provide me with a first edit of the video... be open to my suggestions for minor changes... and finally, leave me with a final version of this video that we both feel very excited about! (I may not be an unbiased source, but it's really a special piece of work he put together for me!) Eddie Jag is a PRO, and I highly recommend him to anyone looking for an extremely talented (and friendly!) videographer, to name just one of his audio/visual skills!!
