Albert did a spectacular job for our video testimonial. He did everything we asked him perfectly. I could not be more thrilled with how the final product turned out, and would most definitely recommend Albert to anyone looking for video production services.

Lawrence exceeded expectations in providing photography and video services for an 80th birthday celebration. His attention to detail and his passion for ensuring customer satisfaction during and after the event was truly outstanding. He arrived punctually at the beginning of the celebration, interacted with the guests in a professional and unobtrusive manner and remained later than the agreed upon time to ensure the capture of all important events of the celebration. He was easy to work with and takes great care and pride in his work. Highly recommended​.

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!

A while back a friend recommended Ilja's video service to me. I needed to produce a couple of product videos, but didn't know where to start. Ilja offered an reasonable price and I was really impressed with his professionalism and his efforts to make this project a success. He had great suggestions on how to get the script just right. He also found the perfect voice-over talent to narrate the videos. He came to my shop to look at possible filming locations and advised on how to best tackle the production workflow. Ilja also kept the editing process transparent and allowed me to give feedback periodically where I thought necessary. I have since hired Ilja to shoot photos during a private event that I hosted and could not be happier with the outcome. Bravo, Ilja! Will definitely hire again! John

We had a three-camera interview shoot on location in a hotel. Tim was very responsive, very professional, and intuitive to our needs. He's also fun to work with. I was particularly impressed with his diligence around lighting. He had a junior crew member with him and was able to utilize both his talent in set-up, while also instructing him on the finer points of filming...all without getting in the way of production. I'm always impressed with people consider the future of their profession and feel they can bring others along in their journey. Highly recommend.

I hired Nicholas to film my Hindu wedding on a Sunday morning at Livermore two months ago. He was punctual and professional, ready with all his equipment in tow. Since there's no rehearsal for a Hindu wedding, I myself wasn't sure where he needs to stand or even go, but Nicholas was able to figure it out once in the event hall. After two weeks, we received the hard drive that held all the raw, unedited footage which is what I wanted and downloaded it onto our external drive. This took awhile for my husband and I to do, but Nicholas was extremely patient with us and reassured me it was okay to take our time. Once every clip was downloaded, my husband and I watched the unedited footage and relived our wedding day through Nicholas' eyes and filming, and it brings tears to our eyes to see the close-up of our expressions, the traditional clothing we wore, and marriage items on the stage. Nicholas also surprised us with still photos of our day even if he wasn't our paid photographer. In addition, the email and texting communication between Nicholas from start to end was prompt, and he was enthusiastic about filming his first Hindu wedding. I am also grateful that Nicholas worked within our budget and stayed the entire day from 9-2pm; he works for the passion of filming, and the money is secondary and I appreciated that commitment. He simply wants everything to be perfect for the bride and groom, and stress-free which it was. I would highly recommend future customers to hire Nicholas to film their special milestones in their lives.

We hired Tatjana and Jonas to film our wedding video and it turned out absolutely perfect! We weren't originally going to have a videographer but we are so glad that we did! We told them which song we wanted to use and they did the rest. They showed up early the day of and they captured everything beautifully. They were so friendly and professional and we didn't even notice them filming throughout the day. They captured all the little details and all the special moments throughout the day. It is so fun to be able to watch the video and look back on our special day. Thank you so much for all the hard work into our video. We would definitely recommend working with Tatjana and Jonas for any videography needs!

Keida was amazing to work with! He was very accommodating from the get go and we couldn’t be more happier with the outcome of his work. In our package, not only did he included the cool feature of a drone footage in our video but he was also able to capture every part of our wedding in multiple angles using one man’s power. We loved his work and is very thankful that he took the time to thoroughly put all then pieces together in our video. We truly would recommend him as a professional videographer for your wedding! Respectfully, The Kimotos

I highly recommend hiring Samerial for your next event! I recently hired her for my 30th birthday party and had requested a short social media YouTube friendly video of my birthday, photos capturing my friends, the ambiance and highlight moments including some roasts and toasts and a full video of my event. I had provided a reference example of my vision of the videos and upon receiving the short video clip within 24 hours Samerial had made my vision come true in video format! Cannot thank her enough for capturing this day for me and she came on time and was willing to stay through the evening to ensure she had captured all that I had requested. Samerial is extremely professional and I would definitely use her again in the future.

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.

Frank, was punctual and worked with a very challenging group of people with grace. The shots frank took were excellent. He has a great sense of composition and he knows how to accommodate for challenging lighting situations. I'm looking forward to working with Frank in the future.

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.

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.
