Brad and his team are simply OUTSTANDING! If you're considering a few photo/video professionals, stop and hire Next Level Photo Video. For our wedding, Brad's entire team new exactly how to direct us and the guests when we needed direction and how to blend into the background when it was time to capture those special moments; all with a great attitude and smile. Right away you get the sense that Brad and team truly care about their work and the goal is to turn in timeless memories. I highly recommend Brad and Next Level! Great Job Next Level! Thanks again!

I planned a surprise engagement for my gf and hired joe last minute. I read his reviews and his package pricing was absolutely unbeatable. Unfortunately we had a last minute change of venue due to weather. Joe was able to change venues and plans without skipping a beat. Because it was a surprise he was excellent about staying below the radar and she never had a clue. He was on time, friendly, dressed appropriately, and absolutely amazing. We are waiting on our final video and pictures which I'm sure is going to turn out amazing! I would hire joe again without a second thought. We will most likely use joe for our wedding too! I honestly couldn't have asked for any better.

I first hired her to video my father's funeral because my Aunt & Sister could not attend. I was expecting a straight reel, nothing extraordinary as it was a solemn occasion. She made the most memorable "movie" for me that I still watch to this day for comfort. It was just remarkable. She was professional and punctual and creative. We then hired her for our wedding reception video. Again, another fantastic video job with the "movie" she put together of the event. Such thoughtful moments she captured from the obvious to the fine details. Again, punctual & professional. Highly recommend her services. Everyone loved both videos.

This was a video shoot for 120 workout exercises on a Sunday. ROF was very good with communication, very prompt and did a great job with the filming. The videos were returned to be very quickly. Everything went much better than I even hoped. They did a great job with everything. I will definitely use them again!

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

JOB: Videography of Large Live Multi-Artist Concert Event (incl Pre-Show / Concert / Post-Show). As a first time client of Chris O/Attis Videography Services, I couldn't have been more pleased from introductory contact to receiving the completed raw video footage (Attis creative editing to follow). An entertainment professional and concert event producer myself, all the essential qualities I know that identify 'top notch, top quality' professionalism and services, Chris O/Attis possesses - excellent customer service, continuous communication and follow-thru throughout the entire process (pre-event prod/planning/prep to event completion), very caring / conscientious / courteous / ez personality to work with, very thorough and anticipatory attention to detail w/ every aspect of the event (left nothing to question), always punctual (or even slightly ahead). In my business, the options of video / tech svcs are many and 'promise or talk a good talk'. Chris O/Attis is the real deal, 'walks the walk & the talk'! I will use Chris O/Attis services again and highly recommend Attis to anyone needing top quality professional videography svcs ~ S. Dadas, Founder / Owner / Artist / Producer SD ENTERTAINMENT

Mark is amazing! He was our wedding videographer and we could not have been more pleased. He is extremely professional and responsiveness, and so great to work with. The wedding video came out perfect. We provided zero direction and he captured all the details and took us right back to all the incredible feelings of the day. Mark is a true professional and incredibly talented. We will certainly use him for any video services we will need in the future and would highly recommend him.

Crane House is superior work for the right price. Troy has filmed several things for us, not the least of which was an eight part CE course with thick language and tough sound dynamics (one speaker refused to use the mic). Crane House mastered the video and sound to our very specific needs and we were able to simulate the course. The value was phenomenal.

Ella was the best addition to my list of wedding vendors. I waffled back and forth on if I actually wanted to use a videographer for our wedding. I got in touch with Ella, she was always quick to respond and never made me feel pressured to hire her. I did end up hiring her and can I just say WOW?! She has such a talent for film and video, our wedding videos are gorgeous, and breathtaking! She got so many great shots over the course of the evening and I couldn't be happier with the result. I love her style, it's not overly cinematic which I love, it makes it feel more personal. Ella was quick to jump in for the day even though we were running behind and blended right in. Thank you Ella, if anyone has the chance to book her you will not regret it!

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.

This guy is an insanely talented production expert. We requested a unique and entertaining video to be made. Before our event, Kevin preplanned the video, then arrived, filmed it, and by the next day delivered an incredible video. We had a few requests, he got back to us within an hour and returned the final video the next day. Now we use this video all the time! Will return for morn.

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.
