Joe is a truly ambitious and truly talented photographer/videographer! He has shown me and so many other people; a different side of them that they didn't know before. When you have photos taken by Joe, you find that it truly is not just the wonderful experience you had working with him, but the wonderful memories that he has captured for you for life.

Hiring Mark was the best decision we ever made. You should definitely book Mark. He was our videographer and did an amazing job despite our low light in the ceremony. He was professional from the moment we met him, and his work is fantastic. He knew how to capture every moment and yet we were never aware of his prescense. He does beautiful work, is very professional and fast. My daughter received her DVD's (both regular and blu-ray) in less than 4 weeks, and were able to relive her wedding all over again. I highly recomment Mark. I promise you will be so happy with Mark on the day of the wedding, and once your get his beautifully crafted DVD's.

Every aspect of working with Steven was a pleasure, very satisfying, and extremely satisfactory!! I was referred to Steven on short notice to perform the videography of a memorial service that was scheduled to take place on very short notice. Steven had the time available in his schedule so we proceeded, over the phone, to discuss the details of the event. Steven knew all of the questions to ask in order to be certain that every potential detail was accounted for and checked, and that there would be no chance of an accidental slip-up or a loose end. To add complexity to the event, 24 hours before the scheduled commencement of the service a family member requested that in addition to the videography would it be possible to arrange for the event to be live-streamed because there were mourners in other time zones and counties who wanted to view the service. Steven calmly and very professionally accepted the challenge, identified a resource that he thought he could work in tandem with to provide the live streaming, and secured all of the arrangements. The live streaming and the videography of the service were fully successful, including the capture of the live streaming feed. After the service Steven delivered to the family the final cut of the video with all of the post-production elements he has described and suggested would enhance the permanent value of the event recording. The family was thrilled with the quality, creativity, timeliness, and value of Steven's services. I enthusiastically recommend Steven to anyone seeking a highly talented and thoroughly professional videographer!!!

Attis Photography saves the day! Not only are Anita and Chris so cool/friendly you could totally picture yourselves having a beer with them, but they are efficient, organized, and excellent photographers. From the start, they are extremely receptive to what YOU want to see in your wedding photographs (lighting, poses, saturation, etc) and really listen to your wants and needs. At our wedding in September, Anita and Chris were professional, on time, and ready to roll. I felt as if they were really invested in our wedding and in making sure everything went perfectly. Our day of coordinator was no where to be seen for about an hour and a half and Anita and Chris were telling my husband and I what to do next and how to do it (and doing it well I might add!) During the reception, they were like photographer ninjas... I would forget they were there then see Chris snapping away from a corner somewhere. They were not intrusive upon our guest's experiences AT ALL and many of our guests even commented on how professional and polite Chris and Anita were. For anyone who feels like they are terrified of taking their wedding pictures because they think they are the farthest thing from a model, do not fear! Chris and Anita are here! My husband and I HATE taking pictures, especially posed ones. However, Chris and Anita had us feeling like models in no time at all. My husband didn't even want to go back to the wedding because he was having so much fun taking pictures. This couple really works well together and their chemistry shows every step of the way. If someone turned back time/ we had to do this all over again, we would choose Attis Photography all over again.

We needed a videographer for filming a piece of a bigger video. We were on a tight budget and time frame. I looked on thumbtack and had 4 viable offers. Ashley seemed like the best choice. It was easy to communicate and work with Ashley. We provided the script and the rest was taken care of with very little effort or time on our part. I wish more of our projects and vendors were this easy to work with..

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!

We can't say enough great things about Brandon! He was professional from the very beginning. He would reply to emails quickly, his contract was simple and to the point, and he was timely. On the day of our wedding him and his wife (his assistant) were wonderful to work with! They were friendly and hardworking. It was extremely hot out and they didn't complain once... just did their job! I made several special requests such as a longer highlight video and Brandon was very accommodating. We haven't received our full-length video yet (this is expected... our wedding was very recent) but our highlight video came back very quickly and we are in love with it! We definitely recommend Brandon to anyone looking for a wedding videographer!

With less than a month to the wedding and no videographer booked, I thought we weren't going to have a professional recording of our wedding. I found Daniella through Thumbtack and after looking through the videos on her website, knew we had to book her! She worked within our budget to give us full coverage and the raw footage from the event, as well as a 3-4 minute highlight video set to music. She even attended our rehearsal to scope out the venue and take some footage that she incorporated into our highlight video! The videographer who shot our wedding was Adam, he was like a ghost, every time I looked up he was there, but he never got in the way or stood out--which was perfect. Daniella sent us the highlight video within two weeks following the wedding and has been an absolute pleasure to work with.

I honestly cannot say enough wonderful things about Just Love Films. From their positive attitude and professionalism to their stunning talent, I could not have chosen a more wonderful videographer. Our wedding day was stressful from the start, but as soon as Just Love Films got there and started filming video I felt like things were falling into place. I was already assured of Just Love Films considerable talent after seeing videos on their website, which I loved! But when I got the highlights video I was brought to tears. They managed to capture not only the best moments, but the spirit and energy of the best day of my life! Thank you

Why settle for average when you can have amazing! We discovered Octillo Productions through their sampled highlight reels on a website and were in awe of how professional their videography was so we decided to go with them. Me and my husband were beyond impressed with Brent and Octillo Productions. It was very easy for me and my husband to communicate with them through email and or through phone. Everything that was offered was given to us plus more! The movie was high quality, showcased our family, friends and our wedding perfectly. He even stayed longer than what was asked for because he wanted the perfect exit shot just to make sure our video was complete. We both highly recommend them if you are looking for a professional videographer. Thanks Octillo Productions for capturing one of the best moments of our lives!

We hired them to document my husband's flight in a P51 Mustang fighter plane, which was in town on the Wings of Freedom tour. It was an unusual assignment, but the professional team at Plus Ultra totally "got" what we wanted and came prepared with two amazing cameras to film the takeoff and landing, conduct interviews with pilots, and shoot footage inside the air museum. They even thought to bring a "Go Pro" to mount inside the plane to capture my husband's experience during the flight. The whole team was extremely positive, professional and self-sufficient throughout the day, and their enthusiasm for the project truly added to the fun for us. I would hire this company again in a heartbeat for any video project that I may need done. I highly recommend this awesome group!!!!

    I have hired and worked with Jed many times since 2007. He has served as a lead and assistant videographer with me shooting hundreds of weddings for my company (SoCal Entertainment and Media). We are a multi-award-winning company, producing throughout Southern California and Jed has been an enormous part of that success. Jed is always reliable and professional. He can be trusted to do an incredible job documenting and producing important and momentous events. I can truly and honestly give Jed my highest, five-star recommendation and I will continue to hire him and work with him time and again.

    Tim Fox was absolutely one of the best vendors we worked with for our wedding- my mom has already talked about wanting Tim to film all of the rest of our family weddings down the road! Tim put together both a longer video and a shorter video very shortly after our wedding. After he shared the videos with us, he was very open to any feedback we had and to making adjustments to the videos. Tim was kind and extremely patient with us throughout this process, and he moved things along quickly. He also put together a video of our entire ceremony, which we are so grateful to have. After our wedding, many of our guests commented that they didn't even realize we had a videographer that night- Tim was extremely professional and captured all of the events and tiny details of the day in such a natural way. This really allowed us to enjoy the day without having to worry about making things look a certain way on the video. I really can't say enough about how wonderful Tim is to work with and highly recommend him for wedding videography-we are thrilled with our videos and truly enjoyed meeting and working with Tim.

    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.
