My experience was an excellent one. Erik Holsinger helped me with a self-promotional video. I was told about a job offering Sunday to be due the following Friday, which involved sending a 5 minute video. I approached videographers the very next day - Monday, and Eric got me in on Wednesday. He came to Berkeley - we started the filming around 12:30 and were finished by the early afternoon. Erik edited it and was done by Thursday, leaving me plenty of time to review it before Friday. I was very impressed with the service I received. He was the only one to reach out proactively (by phone) and did so with a very clear outline of what he could offer - confident but not pushy. We had a number of conversations before he came around about what I wanted, and he was kind and encouraging. I think what most impressed me was his no fuss, can-do attitude. He clearly has experience with public speaking - he knows what and what not to say in front of a camera and how to get to the meat of what you want to say, while getting the essence and character of the person.This, from my own experience, requires tremendous skill. I appreciated Erik's directive coaching, which is exactly what I wanted, but he was soliticious of my needs and did so with warmth, humor and great generosity. I felt he genuinely cared about what I was doing, and felt he got me. Oh, and lastly, the end product was great. It was professional and had just the right amount of graphics and extras (and was just under 5 mins). I went with Erik because I liked his work. He has a confident, intelligent and sophisticated style, that puts in what is necessary, but doesn't add stuff just to be slick and clever (which in my experience mostly back-fires). Furthermore, his pacing, timing and editing is smooth, which having had some editing experience in the past, I know is what makes a great video. I will highly recommend him to folk, and hope you do too! I really don't have anything to suggest or improve. He was a complete delight to work with. Thanks for the opportunity to review.

Needed a videographer at the last minute for my grandfather's memorial services. Other videographers do not include this in their services but he did. He was professional and quick to respond.

I had a short engagement so i had pretty much everything planned out, except for a videographer. i got a call a month and a half before the wedding from Brad. They had such a great deal and price for the video. Best price i've seen( and i was really researching videographers) the only reason i hadn't booked one was because everyone i checked out was too expensive. Trevor was our videographer and he was AMAZING! Everyone loved him, he was so friendly and easy to work with. I got my highlight video in about a week and its PREFECT, I cried. we are going to use them for my brother's wedding next year!!! i highly recommend this team. absolutely incredible. thank you for everything!!!!!

Hai was amazing! He was so friendly and professional through the entire process. He knew exactly how to get the best shots, and recorded everything for our wedding. So grateful we decided to get a videographer for our wedding day (the day is such a rush and blur!), and absolutely delighted to have found Hai and his team to record something we will treasure and watch! The shorter video he edited for us was so beautiful!!! Thanks so much Hai!!!!

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.

Jim is a great videographer!!! After speaking with several videographer, Jim was the ONLY one I liked, besides the fact that his portfolio is exquisite. His professionalism is unlike any other. Jim was prompt with his responses and easy to work with. Although we have not seen our videos yet, I am sure they will be amazing. Jim was patient and understanding when we started to run behind on time during our function. He assured me that everything would work itself out and it did. Jim constantly checked in with me throughout the day to make sure he captured the right moments for our videos. He clearly is very good at his job. Prior to our function, I recommend Jim to a family member who also hired him. There event took place several weeks before our, so I had a chance to see Jim in action. Jim did not disappoint. My family member was very satisfied with Jim's work. I spoke to Jim during this event and even then he gave me several pointers in order to make sure my event went smooth. I can't recommend him enough! Thanks Jim. Frank R.

We hired Ryan to be our videographer for our wedding and we are beyond impressed!! Ryan was so easy to work with and was great at communicating throughout the entire process. He didn't miss a beat on our wedding day and captured the details and event beautifully. He gave us a killer deal and our videos were amazing! We received our video about a month after the wedding, is super fast considering how much editing had to be done. Our families were also really impressed with our videos and couldn't believe he did all that for such a great price.

I hired Kevin to be my videographer for my wedding day. He was very professional and did a great job working with my photographer to get the shots they both needed and what I had requested of them. I received the video in a very timely matter and I can't thank him enough. The wedding video was absolutely perfect and everyone who could not attend loved it. Top notch service and the video was perfect, I would recommend him to anyone looking for good quality service.

My husband and I were very much on the fence about hiring a videographer for our wedding (mostly due to cost) but I can tell you with confidence after receiving our videos from Sway Media that this is the one thing that I am absolutely thrilled that we "splurged" on. Sway Media is absolutely wonderful to work with. They are extremely professional, punctual, flexible, and most importantly TALENTED! My husband and I could not be happier with how our highlight video turned out and the additional feature films of our ceremony and reception are wonderful as well. We have watched our highlight video probably 100 times already, it is truly the best way to re-live our wedding day. We have received so many compliments on how fantastic our highlight video is. Along with our photographer, Sway Media was the best thing that we spent money on for our wedding and to be perfectly honest their pricing was extremely reasonable for how talented they are. A wedding video is something you will treasure forever, make sure you book with the best! You will be so happy with the results if you book with Sway Media, they are AMAZING!

If you are contemplating hiring a videographer for your wedding day, please just go for it! I promise that you will not regret it in the end. Once all the guests have left, and the day that you have been planning for so long is over, having something that will always remind you of the occasion is priceless. Trust me! I originally wasn't sure that I wanted to spend the extra money on a videographer, especially since we had already hired a photographer. I decided to check Google, as usual, and came across Wild35 Videography. After reading such glowing reviews, I decided to check out his videos. I was blown away! On the day of the wedding, Paul showed up to the hotel on time, and ready to work. I was getting my hair and makeup done when he arrived. Paul was so inconspicuous, I barely noticed him! This was great because it allowed me to be natural and relaxed. I wasn't posing for a camera, I was just acting like myself since I didn't even know he was filming me. He filmed our first look, our arrival to City Hall, our ceremony, and a lot of quiet/romantic moments between my husband and I. He always managed to be in the right place, at the right time, without attracting too much attention. My husband and I both love our video, and are extremely grateful to have been able to work with Paul!

Unfortunately I hired Clifton to commemorate my husband's funeral and repass. Although it was a difficult time he was attentive to my requests and I was pleased with the results. The video was professional, editing was seem less and additional footage tasteful. My only regret (which was my responsibility)is that I wish I had more of an idea of what possibilities and upgrades (like additional videographers) would have looked like. Had I realized, I would have had additional camera angles of such an honorable service.

I used Wedding Video Films and I can say I am very glad I did. It was a bit hard finding the right videographer as we only had one chance to get this right. Soleil came in and eased us from the beginning and pretty much took over while still giving us full creative power. We let him do his magic and the final result was really special. We loved our highlight reel. Every time we see it, it makes us relive our wedding day all over again. We added drone footage and don't regret it, it created a whole new dimension I didn’t even notice at the day of the wedding. We love how they captured the smiles and emotions and the right moment and made it come together so nice. Thank you Soleil for capturing our special moment Oscar & Miriam

    Erica is an extremely creative and hardworking videographer and photographer. I have worked with her at several events and seen the work she has produced from a variety of video projects and am always impressed. I would definitely recommend her to a friend and for someone who is looking for a fresh feel to their work.

    About

    I am a Sacramento based videographer and fine artist. I do videos with camera, photography, graphics, and editing. I can also write and do print graphics. Most of my career has been doing computer and video graphics for computer and video games. I've been doing videography of live-action martial arts for the past three years. I can also author standard resolution DVDs of events covered.

    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.

    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.  

    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. 

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
