I booked Jeff Carnie Photography on very short notice for a wedding recreation for my grandparents who weren’t able to make it to my wedding out of state because of health reasons. Jeff was so friendly and understanding over the phone I booked him right on the spot. Jeff’s lovely wife Carole also came as a second photographer and they were awesome. Both were just like family even from the beginning. Communication with Jeff was a breeze, he arrived 15-20 minutes early, delivered all the photos within two days, and took a good mix of candid and group photos to capture the memories. I’m so thankful to have pictures with my grandparents celebrating our special day. I can’t say thank you enough to Jeff and Carole for not only capturing the moments but also adding to our memories as part of the day. Highly recommended!

Richard and his team did a wonderful job on my son's wedding photography. The photos are highly professional, with both natural and portrait type photos. He went above and beyond. We couldn't be more pleased with the ways things went at the wedding and the service after. The photos are beautiful! I highly recommend Brady's Photography!

Where do I start? I hired Javier because he wasn't as expensive as some and his ratings were great. He responded immediately and I really liked his professionalism. The Crew was there to set up early and stayed till the end. My wedding video is amazing and really captured every aspect the day. I couldn't have asked for more. We will cherish our video for many many years.

I couldn't have asked for a better photographer! I recently hosted my grandparents 50th wedding anniversary that included about 150 guests. I wanted to have a photographer that could capture such a momentous time. Jacob was so professional every step of the way and far exceeded every expectation. I had a long list of shots that I wanted him to achieve and Jacob was able to fully deliver. He was such a delight to work with and he was able to deliver such high quality photos that for a lifetime we will be able to look back on. I would definitely recommend him for any occasion big or small in a heart beat!!!

Bruce made an excellent slide show for my daughter's wedding reception. It was spectacular. He was very easy to work with and very professional. He inspired confidence from the start and his product was everything I hoped for.

This review is long overdue! Had my wedding in Nov 2015. Josh is a nice guy, we hired him last minute without meeting him before hand. We communicated online only before the wedding. On the wedding day, he arrived even before us and already walking around to check the place out. The wedding was not really organized well, but he managed to film us without interrupting the photo shoot (which I hired a photographer separately). The edited video turned out pretty nice, (he even did a snap shot of me at the golf course) and price is reasonable too! Thank you Josh! =]

    Our work at Forever Forward Productions stands out from others because we provide a quality service at affordable rates with the inclusion of a certified Audio Engineer. Furthermore, rather than looking at a gig or an event as a job, we look at it as an opportunity to create a beautiful memory for someone and expand our skills and networking. The greatest aspect about being a videographer is being able to wake up in the morning and know that my day will be driven by creativity.

    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.
