One of the young videographers from the studio filmed our event and did an excellent job. She was polite, professional and unobtrusive. She brought a sound system with her which we used to give short presentations to the guest of honor. I was very pleased with how adept she was. Now we await the editing of the footage, which is being done in the studio, to produce a DVD of the event. I have high hopes and every reason to believe it will be top notch. They are responsive, clear, accurate and business like in all their communications. I will post another review when we have the finished product. Jennifer from Pleasant Hill

We hired Sybex Studio for our wedding couple months ago and now hired them again for Thanksgiving party. We were really impressed with their service and reasonable price. We spoke to different vendors and Ruben and his team were very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about their job. We recommend Sybex Studio to anyone looking for event photography.

I hired Jeff to photographed our 50th wedding anniversary celebration of 63 people. He discussed the event several times in advance. He arrived 30 minutes before the posed fmaily pictures were takes to set identify scenic background at winery in Napa and set up proper lighting for the scene which was heavely backlit. He took posed pictures of 11 family members in various groupings, informal pictures at reception and during dinner and at Renewal of Weddding Vow ceremony. Picture were very good- sharp and good lighting. He composed 3 different albums for members of the family and was very quick in re-arranging the order of the pictures and making requested edit. . He was very professional to work with and guests enjoyed having him take their picture. He was very prompt ( within 3 days) in posting on his website a gallery of about 100 pictures of the event, which guests can review , download and order prints. He completed composing 3 different albums in 10 days. I was very pleased and recommend Jeff for event photography.

I told Tri that we would be having a corporate VIP event at Celtra, Inc. and we needed him to take some shots. Tri definitely delivered, he was very professional and took plenty of high quality shots that made Celtra, Inc. look like an appealing company. His turnaround for the photos was only 24 hours and the image quality was excellent. Will definitely hire him again!

My company hired Koppelman & Associates for a corporate event video. We were looking for professionalism and reliability, and Koppelman & Associates did not dissapoint. Our event took more time than anticipated, and the final video required detailed editing. Koppelman & Associates’s service throughout the process was thorough, and resulted in a great video at a very reasonable price. We will definitely use his service again.

They are great videographers. They made a wonderful highlight video. When I was worried it was a little shorter than I hoped, they helped by giving us some b roll footage to allow us to see the other special pieces. Appreciated them capturing expression /moments and peaceful views in nature. While many captured moments here and there, they were able to really get the emotions at the moment. They made our Santa Barbara wedding a great experience!

I hired Keida day before a wedding for my sister in law. Which we didn't expect we would need one. He was SO accommodating and also went above and beyond to stay a bit longer than discussed for our event. He is so fast, efficient and very friendly. He came right on time and due to the last minute booking from phone consultation to day of, he worked with us the best he could. His example works were much better than the other videographers who gave a rate to our budget price. My gut told me to trust him, pay the extra and be his first client for Thumbtack. It was beyond what I expected and he did an excellent job and more! I wish I could give more stars than 5!

I highly recommend hiring Samerial for your next event! I recently hired her for my 30th birthday party and had requested a short social media YouTube friendly video of my birthday, photos capturing my friends, the ambiance and highlight moments including some roasts and toasts and a full video of my event. I had provided a reference example of my vision of the videos and upon receiving the short video clip within 24 hours Samerial had made my vision come true in video format! Cannot thank her enough for capturing this day for me and she came on time and was willing to stay through the evening to ensure she had captured all that I had requested. Samerial is extremely professional and I would definitely use her again in the future.

Jim is a great videographer!!! After speaking with several videographer, Jim was the ONLY one I liked, besides the fact that his portfolio is exquisite. His professionalism is unlike any other. Jim was prompt with his responses and easy to work with. Although we have not seen our videos yet, I am sure they will be amazing. Jim was patient and understanding when we started to run behind on time during our function. He assured me that everything would work itself out and it did. Jim constantly checked in with me throughout the day to make sure he captured the right moments for our videos. He clearly is very good at his job. Prior to our function, I recommend Jim to a family member who also hired him. There event took place several weeks before our, so I had a chance to see Jim in action. Jim did not disappoint. My family member was very satisfied with Jim's work. I spoke to Jim during this event and even then he gave me several pointers in order to make sure my event went smooth. I can't recommend him enough! Thanks Jim. Frank R.

Ian was fantastic to work with. He was professional and responsive. We needed to conduct a media training for our client in SF. He was prepared and arrived promptly. Also, he made sure to bring extras of everything in case we need it. I would definitely use Ian again when we need a professional videographer in the SF area.

We hired a total of 3 videographers for the event and Arnell was by far the best! His equipments were professional, with 2 cameras as opposed to just one and followed the speaker on stage very gracefully. He was also a great guy to work with over all- very sharp and on top of things. Super responsive and professional. We were very happy to get the great quality video and have a new videographer we can now count on. Thanks Arnell!

I hired Glenn to DJ my 50th birthday party, which had an 80's prom theme. I'd been to a 70's-themed New Year's dance he'd DJ'ed in the past and it was the most fun I'd ever had--until my 50th birthday dance. Glenn knows how to keep a room dancing, has a great variety of songs (was able to accommodate all the requests from my guests and did so graciously), helped us get going on group dances, and worked tirelessly for 4 hours. He came early to set up and ran ambient music during dinner as well as sound for a short talent show we had before the dance. He is also a great MC, even though we didn't use him in that capacity much at my party. Next year, when we do it again, I will totally ask him to crown the prom king and queen. I would hire him for any event. He is also easy to communicate with and very responsive. He really wants you to have a good time and give you the party you want.

Jaimee was great. Very easy to work with. She did an outstanding job on all of the flowers for my parents 50th Vow renewal. The only issue we had was the corsages started falling apart before the ceremony began. I am thinking that they may have been glued together and didn't have enough. The table arrangements were beautiful and now I am enjoying lots of flowers in my house! I would highly recommend Jaimee for your event. Thanks Jaimee for creating such beautiful arrangements!

I had my headshots done with Tri twice and loved them each time! Tri was also kind enough to help with an impromptu clip for a video I was putting together during our last session. Could not recommend him enough for all your photography and videography 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.
