Jason does great work! We hired him for our wedding videography in September. He arrived early to setup, and was very professional. He made sure to capture every moment, and added some aerial footage which ended up being really cool. He gave us all the raw footage, as well as an edited video. I'll definitely be recommending him to friends!

Elena did my engagement photos and they came out beautiful, my husband and I never took professional photos before, so she guided us until we got comfortable. She definitely listened to what we wanted and it came out beautiful. Elena also did our wedding and we're waiting on the pictures but I know they'll be great! She was so wonderful! Thank you!

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!

My fiance and I hired Chasing Light to do our photo and video for our wedding. Their pricing was perfect for what we were looking for and we were very excited to be getting both photo and video by the same team. We recently had our engagement photos and cannot begin to explain how happy we are to have chosen them. Our photographer, Russ, was very flexible with the date and even helped us find the perfect location. He definitely listened to what we had in mind and was even ok with my fiance wearing his sunglasses for some of the shots. Russ was very easy to work with and had 2 preview images back to me within the next hour! On top of that, he had the rest of our images ready the next day and they are everything we hoped for and more! I have friends who had to wait weeks to get their engagement photos back. Needless to say, we are obsessed with our engagement photos and CANNOT wait to see how our wedding photos and video turn out.

Gemini Photography was absolutely phenomenal. I hired them for our wedding video as well as their photo booth services. They arrived on time and began filming immediately and seamlessly. I wanted so badly to go introduce myself, but they understood the craziness of the day and blended into the surroundings as they worked. The team is so friendly and professional--they feel immediately like people you have known forever. The photo booth was an extremely reasonable price and my friends and family were fighting over it all night! We immediately got a copy of the photos at the end of the night which was really fun to look through the day after the wedding. The video trailer and full-length version came to us in an EXTREMELY timely manner. I mean, my husband is a film editor...it takes TIME and they got it to us so quickly--just in time to share with family for Christmas. I would highly recommend them and would consider them for my (hopefully future) siblings' weddings. They're wonderful!

Myron and his team were the videographers for our February 2018 wedding. They were really nice and easy going, which helped us in feeling not so nervous in front of the camera. Something that stood out to me was that Myron and his team provided raw footage in addition to our highlight video. Most videographers we interviewed would not do that or added an exorbitant fee for the raw footage. In addition to providing raws, Myron actually ended up editing not jus tone, but TWO versions of our highlight video for us because he wanted us to have one that was the traditional highlight video and another more documentary style. I really felt like he went above and beyond. And these files were all provided to us in an external hard drive. We had some issues with the hard drive at first (probably due to him using Apple and us using PC), but Myron made sure to fix things and that we could open up our files! He even sent us a dropbox link to the highlight video so we can watch it while he was working on the problem with the files opening. We really appreciated his diligence and really felt he and his team really captured the joy of our big day! I was so pleased to have the videos for keepsake and would highly recommend!

Davis came in at the 11th hour and saved the day! I found out that my husband's mother would not be able to attend our wedding, so we hired Davis 2 weeks before the wedding. He was professional and very accommodating, and I am recommending him to any and all bride and grooms. I would like to get married again, just to have the special moments captured by Davis and his crew at IV I II Studios.

Tattooed recently did the videography for my wedding in San Diego on Sunset Cliffs. Their service was fantastic! After a couple quick phone calls, we were able to communicate our vision to them on what we would like and they completely understood right away. Jordan and Harrison showed up early to start the videography and make sure they captured everything which was great! Pre-ceremony they helped guide both the grooms party and bridal party on ideas to really make the video what I wanted. During the ceremony, they discretely used a drone to capture my beach front wedding on Sunset Cliffs from all angles (something I didn't even know they would do for us! What a treat!!!). Finally, at the reception they captured everything I could possibly imagine and stayed quite late through the night to make sure every important memory was filmed. From our first dance, to cutting the cake and then cutting the dance floor, they got it! They were very professional yet with a warm demeanor that made everyone around them enjoy their company. I highly recommend them to everyone if you want to have all your special moments captured in the most beautiful way.

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.
