I used them for a photo booth for my wedding. Everything was great. My only complaint would be that the backdrop wasn't one piece so in a bunch of photos the draping was open a bit in the middle. But attendant was nice and on time. Props were good. Thanks triumph!

This review is long overdue. They stepped in with a photo booth for my wedding on 08/06/2016 after the people we originally booked fell through less than two weeks before our wedding. They travelled for our wedding, were professional, prompt, and the guests loved the booth! Their prices are also amazing! I felt saved by Will and his crew for stepping in at the last hour and being there when I needed them. I hate to say it...but I struggle writing reviews. I don't enjoy it, but really feel like these guys deserve it. I would recommend this photo booth service without hesitation. Thanks so much!

Joe just shot my Hindu, Indian wedding video and he was absolutely amazing. Both him and his colleague were super friendly and fun. He brought more than one camera and did exactly what I asked for and more. Before the event, he personally came over to checkout the place and discuss all details. Indian weddings can be complicated, but he did great. Can't wait to see the completed video!

We had DJ Chris for my wedding and it was the best choice we made. He was professional, on time, on time and outgoing. His sound system was crystal clear, and the lighting was spectacular. Our guests raved about him for weeks. Thanks Chris for making our special day unforgettable.

Annaliza, did my daughter Alyssa Poppin's hair and make up for a TV show. She did it two days and she was great with communication, on time, professional and we loved the end result both times. She went above and beyond the call of duty because we didn't know the call time on one of the days and told her it would be around 8am. When we found out it was 6:30 am we were panicked because that meant we would need Annaliza at 4:45 am! She told us she would be at the house at 4:45 without hesitation and we were so thankful because it was a last minute change. We would hire her again!

AMAZING!! Words cannot express how delicious, and beautiful everything was. The presentation of the food made it looked like we were all eating in a high end restaurant. They were so easy to work with. Everyone in my wedding loved the food, I've been asked many times for their business card. And the cake, the cake was delicious, it was moist and full of flavor. I cannot believe I found a caterer that included a cake in their price, that honestly took a huge weight off my shoulders. Their prices fit my budget perfect, and the food and cake for such a low price was delicious. Thank you Boris and Carolina, the food was simply amazing. I'm so happy you guys catered my wedding, I will definitely hire you for our next big event.

Michael was absolutely amazing at our wedding yesterday. He was early, played every song we asked for and perfectly curated the rest of the night to coordinate with our style. His sound system was loud and crisp and he had everyone dancing and begging for more! He accommodated every last minute request we forgot about and kept the party going. We couldn’t have asked for more and would ABSOLUTELY recommend him for any DJ needs you have. 20/10. Thank you for everything!

Julie did an amazing job with my make up. I booked my trial with Julie and it came out great. She took the time to listen to my needs and my fears about make up. I had my engagement shoot right after and the pictures turned out great. For my wedding, she did bridal make up, 5 bridesmaids, mother of the bride and a friend. They showed up on time. Julie has a great demeanor and she was very calming on a stressful day. She brought an assistant with her that also did amazing work. Everyone looked and felt great! I would book her again. I even referred her to a friend that I believe she is going to be booking as well. My biggest thing is communication and Julie is so responsive and patient. Thank you so much Julie!!!

Brad Reed was amazing! My husband and I had some one cancel on us last minute. I reached out to brad and he not only showed up with a day notice, but helped organize the wedding ceremony with no extra charge. He literally pulled everything together with only talking to me on the phone once before. He made the ceremony everything we wanted and it ran sooo smoothly. I would definitely recommend him to everyone! Thank you Brad!

Paru is an amazing makeup artist. I had my trial back in Feburary and she was willing to travel to my home where I live without extra charge. Her makeup that day was amazing, and she let me try multiple looks. She is very responsive to emails/messages, so there was no issue in terms of communication. I actually wanted the makeup too be a little bit lighter handed than what she did for the trial, and she was able to accommodate that. She did an amazing job and showed me to fix my makeup just in case of anything happening, which was also a plus. My makeup lasted from 12pm late until past midnight without any need for reapplication or touch ups. I was able to eat and drink, dance without worrying about makeup smearing. Truly recommend her! Cheers, Pooja

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.

What is a wedding planner?

A wedding planner is a professional service provider whose job it is to organize and execute all the details of a couple’s wedding. A wedding planner can be contracted at any stage in the wedding planning process to help to any degree the couple is willing to pay for. Wedding planning is similar to event planning in that a planning team handles the coordination of multiple wedding elements including catering, venue, guests, entertainment, decor, transportation and more. Anyone who has ever been involved in a wedding can confirm that wedding planning is hard work. Experience brings wisdom when it comes to avoiding or resolving day-of challenges. There is no legal regulatory body that oversees or certifies wedding planning as an industry. Anyone who chooses can call themselves a wedding planner. When looking for a wedding planner, be sure to read reviews, and make smart hiring decisions by asking about licenses and insurance.

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.  
Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
