Lawrence handled the photography of our wedding with energy and enthusiasm. His outlook was as if our wedding was the only wedding in the world. When my wife was talking to him about the food we were serving, Lawrence listened politely and I could see an idea was taking shape in his mind. When my wife finished what she was saying, Lawrence raised his camera and said "Could you remain right there in front of the rose bush for a moment?" This man lives, sleeps and dreams photo angles. The unending quest for another perfect shot, with the perfect lense, under the perfect lighting. When Lawrence heard that my wife and I met in a dispute over my sappy walnut tree, Lawrence searched the ground in my backyard to find a couple of black walnuts left over from the tree that had been removed ten years ago. I knew nothing of this until I watched the slide show he made for us. As the last guitar chord faded away, the display showed our wedding program, with the story of the black walnut printed on it. At the base of the program were the two black walnuts that Lawrence had retreived. Photography is more than a job to Lawrence Gerald, it is his passion. His artistic nature is evident in his photography. The theme of our wedding was a 1930s themed wedding. I rented a cutaway coat, top hat , cane and white gloves. My wife wore antique pearls. Mr. Gerald started our slide show with a creative photo of my top hat , cane and gloves on the table. Draping down from my hat was my wife's pearl necklace, which framed a napkin we had printed with our names and an art deco design. A white rose was arranged on the hat and both of our wedding rings were in the foreground at the base of the hat. This 1930's style photo captured the essence of our wedding theme. Lawrence's work did not end with the wedding. He went through thousands of photos he took and gave us the best 1,500. Our families and friends were included in all of the group shots. His personable nature made it easy to gather around him for posed photos. I would look no further for an excellent photographer to have at an important event. Lawrence is an amazing individual and photographer!

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.

We used LuvlyProduction for our wedding photobooth in May 2018. I was impressed by their responsiveness and their desire to make sure we had a good experience working with them. Our guests really enjoyed the props and enclosed photobooth!!! I had no complaints from our coordinator about setup or teardown. Would not hesitate to book again :)

Keida was so awesome and easy to work with! He did my wedding video and we were THRILLED. My sister and a couple close friends are in the video production business so they’re always extra critical with videos and they said they could not stop watching it over and over, they LOVED it so much! After I posted it to social media I even received several out-of-the-blue text messages from random people in my life saying how it made them cry, made them laugh, and it was absolutely beautiful! Keida is extremely responsive and on top of his work and is constantly weaving his passion for his work into how he makes his videos. There was some problems with how the microphone picked up my husbands vows and Keida went out of his way to send the audio to another professional (completely free of charge!) to have it cleaned up and perfected so that my video would be just that much more perfect. He even went out of his way to kindly suggest music that really captured the right vibe of the video and how the evening was- it was perfect!! Talk about reliving that day! Thank you so so much, Keida! I hired Keida off of thumbtack after reading other reviews so if you’re reading this, yes, this is a sign you should definitely inquire- it’s hard to find such an awesome, easy-to-work-with, hardworking, passionate-about-his-craft videographer these days, especially at his fair and amazing prices. Great experience, can’t say enough good things, thank you again Keida!

Steve Buerer did the videography for my wedding. He did an amazing job! He was kind, courteous, very professional, and easy to communicate with. He worked with the wedding venue staff and vendors in a very professional way. He is ready to answer any of your questions and concerns in a timely manner. At first I was skeptical about Thumbtack.com because it was my first time using it, not to mention, I was planning a wedding from out of state. However, I found out that Thumbtack.com is definitely a legitimate website with amazing people to hire, Steve was one of them. Steve has work on YouTube also, if you want to see what he has done in the past. Definitely worth hiring, I would hire him again if I had another large event! Lastly, it's hard to find nice and considerate people to work with, so definitely consider Steve.

Pascale provided excellent service for our wedding that took place on September 16th. She went above and beyond her duties to make sure our wedding video was great, we never imagine that the video would be so beautiful. When we received it in the mail it came in this beautiful keepsake box with our name and wedding date on the front. Before and during the wedding Pascale assured me she would do her best to make sure we was pleased with her work and we was beyond pleased. She was very professional and I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for an professional videography. Job Well Done!!! Thank You and I'm So Glad We Met!!!! Derral and Susie

Heart + Soul Films provided photography and videography at my wedding recently, and they were as punctual and professional as could be! They were very patient as it was long and hot day, and managed not to miss any special moments in the busy timeline we had. I have not gotten the final photos and videos yet, but the few I have seen I am amazed with and cannot wait to see the rest! I would definitely hire them again.

We worked with Jim for our wedding video, and he did an excellent job from beginning to end. For something so special as this, we wanted to be sure we hired somebody that we could trust, and that was open to the particular style that we wanted to accomplish. Jim was very responsive to our initial inquiry, and made sure to set up time where we could meet or facetime to discuss our vision. We were happy to learn that Jim had tons of experience in wedding videography. He answered all of our questions, and also gave us ideas and insights as to how other brides and grooms have set up their videos. He was a terrific listener and took to heart our preferences. He communicated with us regularly before the wedding, and on the wedding day showed up right on time to kick things off. He was not intrusive at all and fit right into the flow of the day. The shots he was able to get as a one-man show were terrific you'd think he had a whole team with him!! He captured the beauty of the day, the venue, the feelings before, during and after the ceremony, the guests, the fun, everything!!! We were extra appreciative that our wedding had an unexpected delay before the reception, and Jim stuck around like a trooper and didn't miss a beat. We were so pleased watching the final video, that this is something we will treasure for the rest of our lives. Talk about great value. As somebody unfamilar with videography, I felt nervous about picking the right vendor, but feel very lucky that we stumbled across Jim. Highly recommend!

Her work was prompt and exactly what I wanted AND within my budget! She is my photographer that I refer to all of my family and friends!

I am a seasoned wedding video producer. I hired Frank Sosa to be a second shooter for a premium wedding package at a Napa winery. Frank really knows his stuff and is an excellent shooter. Frank, was punctual and worked with a very challenging group of people with grace. The shots frank took were excellent. He has a great sense of composition and he knows how to accommodate for challenging lighting situations. I'm looking forward to working with Frank in the future.

I really wanted someone to be able to capture the latin vibes at our wedding last month. We are extremely happy that we made the right choice of going with NewlyWed Cinema! They had experience with Mexican and Latin Weddings and saw that their work was perfect for what my husband and I wanted. Luis Angel was punctual and patient with all of wedding day craziness and our big family expectations. We love that he made an instant connection with my mom and dad by being able to speak Spanish with them. And now after seeing the finished masterpiece of our Wedding Day Film, we are thrilled to the moon and back by how he captured all of the emotions that were experienced on our big day. From my family to yours, do yourself a favor and hire Luis Angel and the Newlywed Cinema team!

Our experience with Nathaniel far exceeded our expectations. My wife and I hosted a family gathering at our home to reveal the sex of our new baby. He was taking pictures and videos the entire time. As with many photographers/videographers you never know what you're really going to get. Nathaniel was non-intrusive and blended in at the party which was refreshing. Now for the final product. Much to our surprise the very next day we had our video from him. It brought tears to both of our eyes. We cannot wait to share it with our family and most importantly our son. The video captured all the great moments at our party from the food, the drinks, the laughs and the people. My wife and I strongly recommend his services. Not only is he great at what he does, but he is a personable down to earth type of guy. Thanks Nathaniel.

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!

We decided last minute to hire a videographer for our wedding, literally the day before. We’re so glad we found Dennis. He got our video done super quickly and it’s beautiful. Brought us both to tears.

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.
