I had a very good experience with Jason. My father and I hired him to video my wedding. Jason was on time with everything and very easy to work with, not to mention was very affordable. My favorite thing that Jason did was that he had a hilite video of the wedding 3 days after the wedding so I was able to share and see some of the video right away! I will definitely be using him again in the future and would definitely recommend him

Jessica was awesome to work with. Her creative style lends itself beautifully for outdoor photo shoots using nature as an incredible backdrop. Thank you Jessica for all the lovely photo's of our 25th wedding anniversary renewal ceremony. It was a pleasure working with you and your husband Bobby.

I really enjoyed working with Louie. He filmed interviews and created a video clip to be included in an e-textbook. Throughout the process he was easy to communicate with and gave me regular updates so I always knew the project was on track. I'm happy and impressed with how the final product turned out. Louie was able to give it a professional look that was beyond what I expected. I would be happy to work with him again in the future.

Elena did an amazing job for my really simple courthouse wedding. She made it look so beautiful! Not only did she show professionalism but she had so much patience during the waiting process which we appreciated so much. She gave us direction on how to pose and went above and beyond to get the perfect shot! All of my photos looked great even before editing and then the finished product came out beautifully. I highly recommend Elena she’s super talented and a great people person. She will make your special occasion memorable :)

I've worked with Palo on several photography and videography projects, but the highlight was the video he made for my sister's wedding. He was on time, professional, and gracious for the entire day, which was so helpful amid the stress of a wedding. Palo didn't miss a thing, and the footage from the wedding is perfect. From tiny details on the dress and rings, to gorgeous aerial shots of the venue, and sweet moments throughout the evening, the final video is the perfect recap of an awesome day. The video is set to music perfectly, with snippets of vows which were an unexpected and amazing surprise. Everyone in my family LOVES the video, especially the bride and groom. If you haven't considered videography for your wedding, do it--and book Palo. You will not be disappointed!

Aamir with Aiya Photography has astounding talent linked with an amazing personality. Pictures come out so much better when you are working with someone where you can be yourself and have fun with . His creative art of taking photos I've seen on several occasions: Senior portraits, couple shoot with girlfriend, and also photos for a business marketing campaign. I am 100% confident when I am in front of a camera that Aamir is behind that the photos will be excellent, and that he will catch every important moment. I'm looking forward to many more shoots with Aiya Photography, and will definitely be giving him my business for the most important moments needing capturing. -Asaadullah Khan

I am in love! Chasing light did a same day edit for us so we were able to show a 3 minute video about 50% of the way through our reception. It was INCREDIBLE! The guests were all amazed and we are so thrilled with just this 3 minute video...cannot wait to see the real deal. I have watched it at least a 100 times already. The use of the drone made it extra special.....I would highly recommend him for this same day edit....really fantastic.

I went to do a shoot with Gleimligjt with my newborn baby and it wasn’t easy because my son was fussy and wanted his mom but they both were very patient with me and my son and got the best shots of him and made us feel comfortable the whole time. They love what they do and I appreciate them so much

We hired Myron and Andrew through thumbtack just weeks before our wedding. They were quick to send us a contract and set up a meeting before hand. They were always timely, friendly, professional and took the time to get to know us as a couple. They we’re attentive to the vision we had for our video and offered us an amazing price on our video. Myron and Andrew directed the bride, groom, and rest of the bridal party well. They knew exactly what shots they needed to get and made everyone feel comfortable. We are so happy we found Awesome Sauce Visuals and could not have dreamed of a better video to remember the best day of our lives!!

Anthony did a terrific job with a series of short fresh videos for our website. He filmed one meeting and worked with film we provided from two other meetings. He also did my New professional headshot photo which I love. Anthony understands our energetic brand and added a number of creative touches to bring that energy into the videos. We appreciate his work and will continue to use his services. We will also happily recommend him to others!

Gabe is amazing! We got started late on a company project creating new images and video content for a website over-haul and Gabe delivered on every request bigger and better than we could have ever imagined. Gabe is extremely professional and patient (lots of personalities on set) and he understood and felt our vision and made the entire day fun. Gabe will exceed your expectations! (also ask about "Q" for help with hair/makeup!)

Jon shot video of an event we hosted for an award ceremony and did a great job. His was easy to communicate with, and he shared his work throughout the editing process to check-in with my team, to be sure it was matching our goals and expectations. And he was timely with his delivery of everything. And our video turned out wonderfully!

I definitely recommend working with Mursel/CosmicVibesTribe. In addition to being very fun and easy going, she is very talented. She's great at determining the best lighting, pose and angles to capture the best shot. She's great at creative shots - we did an in action farmer's market shoot, and many fitness shoots on the beach, in a fitness studio and against cool wall murals. Mursel clearly puts time and effort after the shoot in her editing process as well. She's my go to for all photography! Attached are some of her creative shots!

My name is Sarah, as an Independent Personal Trainer, doing my own marketing and content has been a nightmare. T2SAS helped me optimize my SEO, Create Clean Graphics for my social media, Get me customer reviews and referrals, and shoot all my professional workout videos and photos for YouTube and SM. I’ve gained about 40% business traffic since signing them with my goals in mind. There are so many marketing companies that don’t know what they’re doing, or outsource everything. I have a great relationship with my account manager and have instant access to my insights.

We went through the Pros for all of our services. We had Steve K. as our videographer and he was truly amazing. He captured every single moment from start to finish and even took into account the tiny details that were important to me to get on film. He had a great personality, so nice and so professional. And we got our video back the VERY next week - it was waiting in our mailbox when we got back from the honeymoon. LOVED working with Six1nine Productions in general, would absolutely recommend every single time!

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.
