Our whole family was sent the video and even across the world they loved it! He's very kind and generous and even drove out of his way to come meet us in person a couple twice! Very good pricing would definitely use David again!

Our first event with Davis was last year at our Inaugural White Rose Awards. He was extremely attentive at our event being sure to capture every important detail. Needless to say, our video was amazing. Fast forward to this year in August, we had our Grand Opening event for our Preschool. Davis discussed our Vision with us and from there, God truly used him because the final product fully encompassed EXACTLY what we were trying trying to convey. He is our go-to! He is the only person we trust with capturing our Vision.

D & Ky were so awesome to work with. They really brought the best out in my boyfriend and I because we feel we are both awkward in pictures. We were more than ecstatic with how our photos turned out and they were able to provide us with a link within a day of shooting (even despite their travel time from SF to Southern California). Would definitely recommend for aesthetically beautiful & stylized shoots for all occasions. Can't wait to book them for another session :) !!

After using Robby for our first family photo shoot and being blown away at his talent, we now hire him multiple times a year to capture our family, along with video & still shots for my husbands furniture and sculpture business. He has a well trained and artistic eye which shows exceptionally well in his work. A big part in choosing him was that he is a “local” photographer who is born and raised near Joshua Tree, who knows all the right nature spots! You will not be disappointed using him! He’s professional, easy going, funny and an all around great person!

Eddie shot our wedding a few years ago and he was the easiest vendor to deal with. He filmed our wedding documentary style, which we weren't so sure about at first, but it looked awesome. He recreated the story of our wedding day perfectly. The video started with both of us getting ready and talking about how we met and what our first date was like. Even though we were in different places at the time, he edited in a way that almost seemed like we were in the same room telling the story together. I didn't think about it at the moment, but when we watch our video again, it all comes to mind. It's nice to have those memories to share with our kids.

Anthony and his team came through just in time. We hired another production company that canceled the day before the shoot. Anthony was able to assemble a team for a great price that saved my project and my life LOL. I recommend anyone looking for a pro to get the job done, let Anthony get the job done.

I have never worked with a photographer that loves people so much. He prides himself to get the photos back as quick as possible. It will be within the week of a shoot or maybe even the next few days! Unbelievable in photo editing!! Nice to work with and very flexible.

    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.
