Brad Zangwill and staff are by far the most amazing photographers ever--would Never have photography done with anyone else. This project was our wedding. Of course we wanted everything perfect--and it was. Brad shows such enthusiasm, creativity, and sensitivity to what we wanted. He suggested things I didn't even think to do. He was so very easy to get a hold of--always responding back to me--Same Day!! He was always on time. The quality of the pictures were outstanding, all at reasonable cost, and he is just one easy man to work with. Because he kept his cost down, I was able to include other things--like a little interview of us that he showed at the wedding before the ceremony started. People really loved that! No need to look further--he is your man!! I am happy to recommend him and would be happy to speak with anyone individually as well...just call. 909-240-9211--kathy

ROF Industries headed up by Nicole Pittman-Staab and Chris Staab are videographers/photographers who created a wonderful presentation of an aerobatic jet flight I participated in over Southern California. They were able to set up numerous cameras, recorded the event from visually interesting angles, provided editing, musical scoring and conducted interviews with the participants in a documentary style video. The quality of the work was outstanding, ahead of schedule, and the crew at ROF are self motivated. They were always checking up on things and asking questions to make the product the best it could be for me. Everything went perfectly and better than I imagined. I'm very proud of their work and they made me feel and look like a star. They are very easy to work with, friendly and just plain nice! I am planning another doozy of a project for them next year and I wouldn't consider anyone else but them to pull it off.

I needed a combination of event photographs and video of a stage show to capture a special event. I found the perfect match when I hired Blue Child Entertainment to do the job. Landi and her team were extremely professional, knowledgably, friendly, and easy to work with. I received nothing but stellar feedback from my guest regarding the professionalism and friendliness of Landi and her team. And I could not be more pleased than I am with the final product. The photographs are wonderful and it is clear on the video that a lot of time and care was given in the editing process. I would highly recommend Blue Child Entertainment to anyone with photography and video needs – Charlie Gruber

Elena did my engagement photos and they came out beautiful, my husband and I never took professional photos before, so she guided us until we got comfortable. She definitely listened to what we wanted and it came out beautiful. Elena also did our wedding and we're waiting on the pictures but I know they'll be great! She was so wonderful! Thank you!

My wife and I hired Laura and Erica at The Vision Field to be the videographers at our wedding and it ended up being one of the best decisions we made throughout our entire lengthy wedding planning process. First of all, Laura and Erica were an absolute pleasure to work with. They were always extremely quick to respond to all of our questions whether they be related to the type of equipment they would be using or the type of videography we wanted them to capture. During our planning meeting with them over the phone they also knew how to ask us all the right questions in order to make sure they would provide us with exactly the type of service we were expecting. And they were always happy and full of energy, which somehow made us even more excited for the big day as it approached. When the wedding day came they arrived early and were fully prepared with all of their equipment. Our ceremony was at a Catholic church, our reception was in the backyard of a private residence, and we stopped for wedding party photos at a third location in between, and throughout all of this movement Laura and Erica were always able to keep up with the group without us having to worry about them. What actually made us most happy with The Vision Field, in fact, is how they managed to capture every single important moment of our wedding day without ever distracting or getting in the way of us or any of our guests. We hardly noticed that they were there at all, and yet they still ended up delivering incredible footage that perfectly captured every aspect of our ceremony and reception. Whenever my wife and I relive our wedding memories by watching and listening to all the high-quality video and audio, we feel as if we're still there, and in this way Laura and Erica have made our wedding last forever. They're not only videographers and photographers but also musicians and audio engineers, and they therefore know exactly how to record and deliver a perfect product package. We certainly made the right choice by asking The Vision Field to be there with us on our big day and we're thrilled with all that they have done for us. They are good people and experienced professionals, and we fully recommend that you choose to work with them too!

Gabe is amazing! We got started late on a company project creating new images and video content for a website over-haul and Gabe delivered on every request bigger and better than we could have ever imagined. Gabe is extremely professional and patient (lots of personalities on set) and he understood and felt our vision and made the entire day fun. Gabe will exceed your expectations!

Anthony did a terrific job with a series of short fresh videos for our website. He filmed one meeting and worked with film we provided from two other meetings. He also did my New professional headshot photo which I love. Anthony understands our energetic brand and added a number of creative touches to bring that energy into the videos. We appreciate his work and will continue to use his services. We will also happily recommend him to others!

Rolling Tide is a brides dream come true! First let me just say if you’re on the fence about getting videography for your wedding don’t be. It’s a complete must find it in the budget to make it happen. We literally watched our wedding video 20x in a row when Dan sent it to us. It’s amazing being able to relive the day! And I couldn’t recommend Rolling tide any more than I can. They are extremely professional, so sweet and fun to have (last thing you want is a stressed vendor at your wedding believe me), and their work is literally Hollywood level! Their cinematic style is incredible. They told us day one that their goal is to make something we’d watch for the rest of our lives and love, and they’ve delivered!

With never working with a videographer before, I was definitely nervous to shoot a video. I did not know what to expect but had seen Solful's work and was immediately intrigued. When hearing about my lack of experience in shooting videos, Solful Studios were quick to ensure that I felt comfortable in front of a camera with their constant words of encouragement and positivity. Unquestionably, the entire shoot was an experience I will never forget, as it was filled with laughter and fun. I was very pleased with Solful's work ethic and am proud to say that the video exceeded all of my expectations.

Jared Magers was beyond professional and extremely talented when it came to filming for my event. I can't believe the edits he was able to make to my film. I found him on this website and I sure will be using him for my next video shoot. I suggest you look no further and use Magers Productions! You will not regret the service, quality and pricing they offer. The whole team is exceptional talented and professional!

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.
