We used DeNoise on a customer testimonial video shoot in a dentist's office. Albert and his team did a great job - they were responsive, friendly, efficient, and delivered on-time. The finished product was spot-on. I would definitely use them again, and recommend them. thanks, Albert!

We needed a photographer last minute for an event and Kuks Singh was very helpful! Provided us with all the photography at the end (not edited, just raw footage) and even some video clips. I would recommend his services.

My husband and I are extremely happy that we picked Sybex Studios to do our photography and filming of our wedding day. Another added benefit of hiring Sybex Studios is that we got our first photo booth hiring from them. Killing 3 birds with one stone. Best decision From the first email up until our wedding day and even afterwards Reuben was very easy to communicate with and extremely knowledgeable about his craft. Quick to respond to any queries I had and offered suggestions. Especially helpful was being allowed to pay in instalments up until the wedding day. On our wedding day, Reuben and his team were professional and friendly and during the ceremony discreet. The pictures and video clip of our wedding day were absolutely amazing! Our guests had a fantastic day with the photobooth. I would recommend Reuben and his team at Sybex Studios to everyone!

Top notch experience with Diane on my drone video project - delivered everything as planned and was able to make a great judgement call in the field and on the fly to deliver solid video footage at a shoot site where conditions weren't ideal.

My fiancé hired Steve to photograph his proposal, and it was magical. A day that I will never forget, and thanks to Steve I have beautiful pictures hanging on my wall to show off. Very professional and worked well around my restless and rowdy toddlers! Pictures were ready for review within hours not weeks, and I had the prints in hand not long after as well. Would highly recommend and will be hiring for our future photo shoots as well! 10/10!

Ilja from ISDesigns was a pleasure to work with! Our company CEO was presenting with one of our main clients at a conference in SF Union Square (Sept. 2016) and we needed to turn the presentation into a video, and we needed it to show the presentation as well as a screen with a high-resolution version of the slides. From the start, Ilja was friendly, a good listener to our needs, and communicative about his process. He planned to set up ahead of time, and was good at improvising when something minor came up at the presentation that was out of his control. Ilja's post-production work was excellent! He really listened to my vision, kept our branding consistent and also made suggestions when he saw fit. I would not hesitate to hire him again next time we need his services in SF area. Thank you Ilja!

Tri met me for a photo shoot of my Jeep Wrangler. He was outstanding to work with. Showed up early, had all the right gear, really knew his stuff, and had endless passion and energy to get all the "right shots". We even shot 3 or 4 different venues at his suggestion -- far above and beyond what I would have expected. Also just a good, genuine guy that is a pleasure to work with.

Mark did a fabulous job at our wedding in October!. He showed up on time even in the pouring rain and stayed late. Our video clip was so beautiful it made me cry the first time we watched it. I highly recommend mark if you want something unique and something you can watch over and over again and not get tired of it. Mark had also been very professional and honest the whole way through. Thanks again! And can't wait to recieve all the amazing footage.

I want to give Kurtela Video Productions a 1,000 star rating but seeing as how five stars is the highest I can go that’s what they get; but they deserve 1,000! When planning my wedding I found Kurtela Video Productions and knew instantly Sean was the person I wanted to capture this day. This speaks volumes seeing as how I didn’t plan on having a videographer and Sean’s work changed my mind. Sean’s artistic ability in telling a story drastically stood out from anyone else I found. No one compared. The day of my wedding I saw Sean briefly before everything started and then left him and his team knowing without a doubt they would capture this day. When watching the completed video I was crying, laughing and reliving every moment and emotion of that day. I was watching moments I didn’t realize they captured. It was as if cameras were everywhere capturing everything. Sean and his team did it. They told our story and blew my mind in how phenomenally they did it. In the words of one of my bridesmaids, “That videographer was worth every penny. That is FANTASTIC.” So, if you’re reading this review, hire Sean. Without a doubt this will be the best money you spend on your wedding.

Rand is awesome. He is very professional, has a very creative eye and made timely and necessary suggestions to get the right results from the shoot. He made advanced schedule that greatly helped in preparation to ensure we are on schedule throughout the day. Rand is also friendly and pleasant to work with. Finally, since I needed my promo video and photos in short time Rand made sure he stayed on top of everything and executed each step of the process quickly. Highly recommend his work.

My experience working with Nathaniel Davi Reyes has been an outstanding, rewarding experience, that has helped open many doors for myself and my own business. I asked Nathaniel to perform some photo and video work for a hair cutting tutorial video a little less than a year ago, and the results have been amazing. The final video went to YouTube and has now, to this date, over 700,000 views. I have gained national and world attention, gained several new clientele, and gained side gigs that I would never have came across if it weren't for the video. The common compliments are about how good the quality of the video was; how well done it was put together. Truly a testament to the work and vision of Nathaniel. As far as his professionalism, Nathaniel is a true professional and artist. He has all the equipment necessary, knows how to operate and improvise the equipment, punctual, possesses a quick turn over rate for completion, and requires little if not no instruction in terms of what needs to be done. I simply give him the concept of what I want to do, and let him work his magic like a true artist. All in all, I've now decided to appoint Nathaniel as my go-to video and photo guy.

I had my headshots done with Tri twice and loved them each time! Tri was also kind enough to help with an impromptu clip for a video I was putting together during our last session. Could not recommend him enough for all your photography and videography needs!

Unfortunately I hired Clifton to commemorate my husband's funeral and repass. Although it was a difficult time he was attentive to my requests and I was pleased with the results. The video was professional, editing was seem less and additional footage tasteful. My only regret (which was my responsibility)is that I wish I had more of an idea of what possibilities and upgrades (like additional videographers) would have looked like. Had I realized, I would have had additional camera angles of such an honorable service.

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.
