Brad is top notch. My wife and I hired him this past Saturday for our wedding. He was on time stayed a little extra and exceeded our expectations. He is a real artist. He is so instinctively quick and able to capture moments. He also has a strong crew. We opted for photos and video with Brad. We had children in our wedding party whom Brad photographed vivid and candidly. If anyone is in the market for a wedding photographer hire Brad on our recommendation, he could not have done a better job. Pure EXCELLENCE! Irene and Mark

We have had the pleasure of dealing with Joe for numerous personal as well as business photo shoots. Every personal shoot we have done has been roughly an hour and the professional shoots have varied based on requirement (event coverage). The locations are always based on our personal preference to which he has been more than happy to accommodate to. If we don’t know what we want, he’s been great about suggesting locations to obtain the best scenery and overall feel to suit our needs. Having dealt with around 5 or 6 previous photographers, I have to say that Joe is the only one that I would recommend. He was highly professional, courteous, offered extremely quick turnaround, and an end product that I have always been extremely happy with. I have to say we were impressed when he pulled out his iPad and opened a reference book to help us with different poses. He explained to us what the concept was behind each pose and which ones were more popular or common and which ones were less seen. He excels at capturing the emotion of the shoot rather than just the image itself. It becomes apparent what I mean when you see portraits that feel forced and bland, like no one wanted to be there. We always have fun during our shoots and I believe it really reflects in the end result. All summed up, I’d definitely recommend Joe Chung Photography if you ever photography services. He really goes above and beyond to ensure your satisfaction with all of the pictures he provides. He is professional, courteous, and offers a high quality product that I have always been satisfied with. If you need photography, you need a great photographer, and that’s exactly what he is.

Let me start off by saying that Carlos is AMAZING! He is not only very professional, he really knows his stuff and is really friendly and personable! Carlos came to our home to talk to us about what he can do for our party, showed us some light effects and we went over the music we would like to have at our party (Halloween Birthday Party). Carlos arrived early the day of the party and set up everything and the lights he set up were really a hit with the guests! His sound system and screen were so cool and it was fun being able to see the videos as the music played. Carlos kept the party going and interacted with the guests and got them to dance and get involved. I would HIGHLY recommend Carlos for any gathering you may have and we will forever use him for all our parties! Thank you Carlos for all your hard work and being a part of our party!

Creative Deviants was in charge of all of the cameras, photography, and lighting for my music video shoot, and we were able to shoot four different sets all in one day because of their hard work. The day was smooth and fun, and the post process is so much easier thanks to everything CD was able to achieve!

Steve is a consumate professional, really easy to work with, and I felt like I received great value from his services above and beyond what I had hoped for. He arrived on time and we were able to begin immediately after make-up and hair were finished. I felt comfortable talking to him and requesting special things as well as relied on him for his directional expertise. When we wrapped, I knew I had enough film for my video, and even more than I had anticipated. I will be using Steve again in the future. I highly recommend his services! Karin

Just got my video from the wedding. And I can't say enough. Mark was on time showed up and did an amazing job and brought another person with him to help. Seriously worth every penny. He made me a teaser video, a video about 30 to 40 mins long and give me all the raw footage. Mark you did so great we are so happy and I can't believe you got me all this in less then 3 weeks. Dennis and I were up last night for a few hours and watched everything. I'm so glad we found you chose you. Seriously felt like we were reliving the whole wedding again. Your price was great and you were so great with everyone. I would recommend you over and over again to everyone that is looking for a videographer. Thank you so much again for everything.

I loved every part of working with Troy and Crane House Film! We shot a music video in Malibu and it turned out magical! We are about to release it and I am sure it is going to be an important step stone in my career. Troy is a world class filmmaker, an amazing artist, great collaborator and a lovely friend. I loved all the ideas he came up with and had a great time working with him! I would highly recommend working with Troy!

Commercial and Event Shoot - we hired Ron to do the event shoot for our new facility opening and do a few external images, he delivered 10 folds, he brought his drone and was able to fly it around our facility to capture stunning video and still images. We then hired Ron the second time around to take commercial photographs of our products and equipment and once again has delivered amazing results! I recommend Ron for any photography and videography needs!

Merve has been absolutely incredible to work with. Not only was she on time, professional, kind, and gracious during our entire actual filming process, she has done nothing short of incredible editing for our promo video. We are super picky, and were concerned about looking good on camera, but Merve knew exactly the lighting to use with us, and was super receptive to all of our requests. The video is amazing and we will absolutely be working with her for all of our videos moving forward. Totally exceeded all of my expectations.

Scott and his crew did an amazing job for our wedding which was both audio and lighting heavy. Not only was he always quick to respond to my emails, but always willing to offer advice in helping me develop the look I was going for. Due to the nature of the venue, the set and strike needed to be done very quickly and they nailed it. 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.

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.
