Erik worked closely with me in my capacity as Dean of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at Arizona State University to conceive, create, film, edit, and distribute videos for various aims from student success to advancing various departments, schools, and programs. His videos are of exceptional production value and consistently high impact, in fact winning several awards. The videos were integrated into social media campaigns that reached large audiences and created recognition and excitement about our work. In addition, Erik was a trusted advisor in my work as Director of the International Institute for Species Exploration, assisting me again in both video and social media environments. His creativity, ability to convey ideas in vivid ways, professionalism, and sense of what works and doesn't in social media were of enormous importance to our success.

We hired Joel to film two days for our wedding. He was professional, down to earth and a funny guy. The end of our event I told Joel he can end his filiming for the day since our reception was coming close to the end but he stayed and captured our cake fight (we cut the cake really late). We're excited to see how all the editing comes together of our wedding. Thanks Joel for the wonderful experience!

I was looking for a videographer/video production company to provide me with videography for my wedding. I was skeptical due to the price, but how I would have regretted it not having that video from my wedding. Yes, videography and photography is expensive, but I would almost say that I will cherish my videos more than my photos due to the shear fact that you hear your and your spouse's voice saying your vows; pictures can't do that. Elegant Events Media were so great about payment options, and really worked well for my payment needs. I usually spoke with Brad, but everyone I spoke to were great! They answered as many questions as I had with great patience, and that was so appreciated. Leading up to the wedding they contacted me multiple times to make sure all plans were the same and to clarify any questions they had, but also to make sure I didn't have any more questions for them. On the wedding day, Darin was our videographer, and gosh am I glad we got him. He was so professional, and so easy to work with, but he was also in constant communication with the photographer as well. Watching out video back, there were times he recorded that I didn't even realize he was there, which made it so genuine. I cannot be more thankful for Darin and his time with us at our wedding. With editors of our video were amazing, and although the music we initially picked for the background music wasn't in the video, I ended up LOVING the songs they had picked instead. The turn around time from the wedding to when we got the final project was about 2 weeks, which I thought was totally reasonable. The short video was so fun, and the extended video was also edited with music and transitions which was so appreciated, since I pictured an old home video of all raw footage of the wedding. I would highly recommend Elegant Events Media for videography, and I would HIGHLY recommend Darin for your day.

This is a review for video footage only. I loved my experience with Damian! He was very friendly, attentive to details, worked well with my photographer, punctual and was not at all a distraction to my big day. He & his team were amazing at being discrete in getting their footage! He got the shots he needed & reassured me that the footage he got was more than enough he needed to make a good film! I can't wait to see our film & the magic that Damian & team caught on our big day!

Working with Teddy before the wedding we were able to have a few good conversations about what we were looking for and the moments we wanted to capture. The crew showed up ahead of schedule and with a bunch of professional equipment. The highlight video exceeded my expectations and was very creative. For a little bit extra we were able to get all of the raw footage on an external hard drive. I would highly recommend hiring Caravan Film Crews for your wedding!

Kevin and his colleague David were great. They showed up on time and were very professional throughout the whole day (and it was a long day). Still waiting for the final product, but overall KPC Productions were wonderful and willing to watch inspirations I had for my wedding film and made sure I got the shots I wanted by asking me throughout the day. Thank you!

Our office hired Charlie Boy Productions to film a seminar our doctor was hosting, with the intention of passing it out as dvd's to new patients. Nicholas was very helpful. He worked with our budget and was very helpful. He was easy to reach via email, and there was a quick turnaround time for us to get the finished product. We are happy with the end result and can't wait to share it with our patients!

In my 12 year career, I have never met anyone more dedicated to their clients than Chris at Custom Video Connection. I run an adrenaline park brand called House of Air. Chris filmed, directed, edited, and produced 18 videos for our employee video training series. We are a growing company, but still small enough to need personal attention. When we decided to franchise and expand, we knew we needed standardized employee training. We researched and interviewed several video production companies, and we were immediately impressed by Chris' energy, passion, and personal connection. Chris produced nearly 3 hours of finished product for us, broken into several distinct video segments. He coordinated videographers and a drone operator for us to get the best possible raw video footage to work with. Chris' guidance was vital in helping us to understand the best teleprompter setup, scripting, and lighting, as well as which of his microphones to use in which takes to produce the best sound. I worked very closely 1-on1 and directly with Chris on the video editing process, because I'm a very picky client, and he was very patient with me - he wouldn't stop until the finished product was edited exactly to my specifications. That being said, I also know he has several clients who are happy to let him make all of the editing decisions, and if that is the case, I can assure you he will make you a great video with very little effort on your end. I attached a few stills from our videos to this review. He included drone shots, cutaways, text-on-screen and good transitions and titles in all of our videos. We just recently finished training our first wave of new hires at our new locations, and they LOVED the training videos. Our Operations Managers are also thrilled that they now have a standardized tool to use so that all employees receive the same information every time. I'd highly recommend Chris and Custom Video Connection for any of your video needs. You can contact me personally: smoody@houseofair.com if you want more information about my experience hiring Chris.

Jerico Mechanical highly recommends Choker films for all of your video needs. Choker films did a 45 min training informational video; it was very well done and viewed by all of the top name brand manufactures in the industry. Was a fair price for a job well done, Jerico defiantly plans on using this company again.

They did our wedding videography. I never really thought about having a videographer, but I'm SO GLAD we did, and I'm so glad Ivory Dog Films did it for us! We were overjoyed with the video, both in terms of the editing and the quality. They were so great to work with, too - professional, but still super fun. Would highly recommend!

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.
