John was a really great videographer that I used for my wedding. He is reasonably priced, has great communication, and is very professional. He would actually follow up with me on items, rather than the other way around, as it was with other vendors. He gave great advice on to the services I should get. I didn't feel like he was pushing me to pay more or get a bigger package, but rather found out what I was looking for and advised me on what he thought would best fit my budget and what I wanted. (2 videographers for the ceremony!) He got along great with my DJ and photographer, which made the reception that much more seamless. The turn around time to receive my video was crazy fast. I gave him a basic understanding of what I wanted in the video and he was able to bring it together well. He would even call me to ask questions as he was editing to make sure that he was on the right track. There was an issue with the music audio (that I had supplied) and he was able to get it fixed and send over the video quickly. John is very personable and professional and I would recommend him to anyone!

As a model it's a great feeling to be at rest in front of the camera. To trust the photographer will capture the best of you, has an understanding of light, angle, style, inspiration, mood and can produce polished work in a timely manner. Rich does all this with ease. His style of clear communication and positive energy always makes him a pleasure to work with! Time for another shoot Rich, thank you!

We used Tabrizi Productions to film our 2-day leadership conference. Both the quality of the final video and photos were quite good. They set a high standard for our future documentation of our conferences. Farran and her staff were professional and very reasonably priced. We have since hired videographers/photographers for our conferences around the country and have found Fabrizi to be a steal for the quality of work they produce!! Definitely give them a chance, you won't regret it!!

I spent more than 10 months trying to find the right videographer. I met w/ numerous videographers but never made the connection w/any of them to feel confident that they will capture what I wanted for my wedding film. Ocean and his team went above and beyond what we could've imagined. He has the ability to capture the hearts of his viewers. I booked him 2 months before my wedding and it was worth every penny. Word of advice for any future brides who happen to get a quote from OtionPictures. If you end up booking him, please consider adding the love story to your package. We were hesitant at first but Ocean assured us that the love story truly shows your guests who you are as a couple. I know Ocean truly enjoys capturing what every wedding should be about, love. The love story turned about amazing and had all our guests crying! Ocean, Daniel and Willis, we cannot thank you three enough for being there on our big day. We appreciate your patience, attention to details and your kindness towards our friends and family.

We hired Eddie last minute for our videographer and he did a fantastic job! We were really impressed with his professionalism and the fact that he actually showed up to our rehearsal to film that as well. Eddie was by far th best value I was able to find because his package came with much more than the competition I was looking at.

David Hill is one of the most talented and generous photographer and videographer in the Bay Area. I met David through Yelp and went on to hire him for two separate video projects with San Jose Fire Fighters. David has skillful approach that incorporates people's natural abilities in combination with light, sound and technology to produce videos that inspire people to act! He is patient and uses humor to make others feel comfortable and bring their best self forward in front of the camera. I highly recommend that you hire David Hill for your next photo shoot or commercial video.

    For years now, I have relied on Wendy’s experience, creativity, and knowledge to fulfill my creative visions and the results of her videography have astounded me - every single time with every single video. As a full-time fashion and lifestyle blogger, I typically work with Wendy for very specific projects with strict deadlines and she successfully finishes my videos WAY before my projects are due - talk about productivity at its finest! Additionally, if there are any fun animations, text, or concepts that I want to implement into my videos, Wendy doesn’t hesitate to explore my requests and deliver above-and-beyond results. From starring in fun and casual fashion lookbooks to “Day In The Life of Missmisschelle” to interactive restaurant videos, it has been a fun journey to see just how much Wendy has truly grown as a professional videographer. I cannot wait to see what else is in store for her videography career and I strongly recommend hiring her to capture the behind-the-scenes of public events, branded campaign videos, and more.

    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.  
    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
