Wedding day makeup and hair for the bride. We did a trial about 2 months before the wedding. Even though I didn't have a specific look in mind for makeup, Jacynda did a good job of talking me through it and making adjustments as we went along. She and Mandy did a great job on makeup and hair, and I was very happy with the overall look. We had to deal with some scheduling issues for wedding day, but Jacynda was very good at communicating any problems with me early, and was very good at putting the client's needs first. I really enjoyed working with her! On wedding day, Jacynda unfortunately could not be there to do the makeup because of something entirely out of anyone's control, but she sent an outstanding artist, Erin, to get the job done. Erin and Mandy were awesome on wedding day! They gave me a natural look that looked great in pictures and was exactly what I wanted. I would highly recommend Jacynda and her team of artists

I highly recommend Jacqueline. At my request she showed up with a colleague to do my hair & makeup & my cousin's hair, for my wedding. We were running late and had a major fiasco at the hotel we were getting ready at. The ladies were so patient & helpful. Even helped us get all of our stuff out of the flooding hotel room and stayed and helped me get my dress on. My hair and makeup came out exactly how I wanted it. The price was the most reasonable I found. Thank you again ladies!!!!

My husband and I hired Jason to perform for our wedding ceremony and cocktail hour. Jason was such a professional throughout the process, and was also helpful in selecting the perfect music for our day (I was clueless!). All of our friends and family commented to us about how great he was! Jason is a very talented musician, and was the perfect addition to our special day. Thanks for the added memories, Jason!

Monica was my Day Of Wedding coordinator, and she was very helpful from the time I hired her. She guided me a lot in the beginning of the process, responding quickly to my emails, and collaborated with me putting together ideas for last minute decoration details for my wedding. She also recommended 2 fabulous vendors for the wedding, which turned out great and their service was outstanding! Two things to note though, which I think she could have planned it out better is that she was about 20 minutes late to our wedding rehearsal. I understand that there's always heavy traffic around the time of our rehearsal time, and that she was hired as a day of coordinator, but the rehearsal meeting was included in the service, we told her ahead of time, and it would have been nice if she was there on time or before 5 to stake out the area and be ready to guide us when we all arrived. Another thing that happened, I didnt know at the time since one of my bridesmaids told me after thr wedding, was that one of my guests name was left out of the table seating chart. Other than those hiccups, the day of the wedding went fabulously and she was definitely on top of her game! overall I am happy with her service.

Reverend Rob was an amazing addition to our wedding! He did a wonderful job helping us meld our ideas in to a cohesive ceremony. He was professional, charismatic and even ad-libbed some jokes when my fiancé and I were fumbling with our love letters to go in our wine box. Everyone at the ceremony was impressed! We can't recommend him enough :)

Elena did an amazing job for my really simple courthouse wedding. She made it look so beautiful! Not only did she show professionalism but she had so much patience during the waiting process which we appreciated so much. She gave us direction on how to pose and went above and beyond to get the perfect shot! All of my photos looked great even before editing and then the finished product came out beautifully. I highly recommend Elena she’s super talented and a great people person. She will make your special occasion memorable :)

Throughout the entire process, Peter was professional, easy going, fun, and very well organized. He kept the wedding events progressing and kept everything on time which meant he had plenty of time to blow the roof off the place with his choice of beats and party classics. He had 4 yr olds to octogenarians rocking all night. Thank you, DJ Jimmy Grizzly

SO VERY SWEET AND FUNNY OFF THE BAT. SHE REALLY PUTS YOU AT EASE AND IF YOU DON'T REALLY KNOW WHAT COLORS YOU'D LIKE ON YOUR FACE, SHE ASKS ABOUT YOUR DRESS AND COLORS OF THE WEDDING, TELLS YOU WHETHER THOSE KIND OF COLORS WOULD LOOK GREAT OR NOT AND SUGGESTS SOMETHING BETTER THAT WILL BLOW YOUR MIND AWAY! I'VE USED HER FOR 2 MORE EVENTS SINCE THEN BECAUSE SHE IS THAT GOOD. AS A MATTER OF FACT MY MOH WHO IS ONE THAT NO ONE TOUCHES HER FACE BECAUSE SHE DOES HER OWN MAKEUP WHICH IS PRETTY ENOUGH, ASKED ::) STEPHANIE COULD DO HER MAKEUP AS WELL BECAUSE SHE WAS BLOWN AWAY WITH MINE AND STEPHANIE EVEN GAVE HER BETTER TIPS TO APPLYING HER OWN MAKEUP IN THE FUTURE. STEPHANIE TRULY IS THE BEST, DON'T MISS OUT ON HER, SHE BOOKS UP QUICK BECAUSE OF HER AWESOME TANNING JOBS THAT SHE DOES AS WELL. THANKS SO MUCH STEPHANIE, I ALREADY MISS YOU AND I SERIOUSLY CAN'T WAIT TO SEE YOU ON THE 8TH OR 9TH OF SEPTEMBER FOR TANNING AND THE 10TH OF SEPTEMBER FOR MY MAKEUP!

My NEW husband and I really wanted a personal touch to our wedding and were worried about hiring someone offline. However, after our first meeting with Dawn we knew she was the perfect fit. She let us review and change the ceremony to our liking and was very knowledgeable about the ins and outs of weddings. Rehearsal and Day Of were perfect!! Im very happy with the wedding of my dreams and would recommend Dawn to anyone!!

Phoebe was so amazing! She kept clear and open communication from the very beginning, which I really appreciated as a bride planning a wedding by myself. She was the hairstylist for me and my bridesmaids. Her skills has to be one of the best in the hairstyling industry. I told my bridesmaids to find an updo they wanted for themselves and Phoebe was able to replicate it flawlessly. One of my bridesmaids never had a full updo done (i.e., all hair up) because she felt it never looked good on her to have it that way. But Phoebe did her magic and my bridesmaid couldn't been happier with the result! She is even one of the updos Phoebe has posted on her Instagram. Because I had so many bridesmaids, Phoebe brought an assistant as well who also did a great job. They worked as a team and were both easy-going, which helped make the morning of my wedding run smoothly. I HIGHLY recommend Phoebe to my family, friends, anyone!

I had a very specific vision for my wedding decor and Angeline executed it beyond my wildest dreams. The theme of our wedding was Havana Nights, an edgy, fun, but still stunning flair. Angeline took so much time to pick out foliage and flowers to match my vision for the arrangements. Every single, tiny detail had so much creativity. She incorporated floor vases, which then were repurposed as tall centerpieces, and matched them with varying sizes of small arrangements. One of my favorite arrangements, other than my STUNNING bouquet, was the wine bottles filled with different flowers and foliage. Each arrangement was so articulately designed. Angeline we cannot thank you enough for making our wedding so incredibly beautiful!!! I am still absolutely OBSESSED with all your work!! Our wedding was a dream.

Just called up DJ Mark to arrange music plans for our wedding reception. He was open, kind, fun to talk to and above all interested in tailoring his work to our vision. He is professional and I can already tell he will be punctual (hence I chose that option, too). He even offered to go to the venue ahead of time to arrange things there so that the event will run as smoothly as possible. Looking forward to continuing to work with DJ Mark leading up to our big day!

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.

How much does it cost for a photographer for a wedding?

Finding the right wedding photographer can make a big difference for your ceremony. Nationally, the average wedding photographer’s price ranges from $800 to $1,000, but costs can be much higher in areas like Chicago, New York or Los Angeles where some couples spend $2,000 to $5,000 or more for the photographer they want. Factors that can affect your wedding photographer prices include the photographer’s reputation and experience. Heavy hitters can command top rates, especially during wedding-season weekends. Day of the week also affects your cost. You may get a $200 discount on wedding photographer prices if you get married on a Friday in November rather than a Saturday in June. Time onsite is also an important cost factor. Hiring a photographer to snap photos from the moment you wake up until after last call at the reception is going to cost more than five hours of pictures during the day. Multiple photographers, special lighting, and videography will also increase your costs. Ultimately you want to find someone who has a style you love and can provide the number of edited shots you want for a price you can handle. Learn more about hiring a wedding photographer.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
