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!

Let me start off by saying that Carlos is AMAZING! He is not only very professional, he really knows his stuff and is really friendly and personable! Carlos came to our home to talk to us about what he can do for our party, showed us some light effects and we went over the music we would like to have at our party (Halloween Birthday Party). Carlos arrived early the day of the party and set up everything and the lights he set up were really a hit with the guests! His sound system and screen were so cool and it was fun being able to see the videos as the music played. Carlos kept the party going and interacted with the guests and got them to dance and get involved. I would HIGHLY recommend Carlos for any gathering you may have and we will forever use him for all our parties! Thank you Carlos for all your hard work and being a part of our party!

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

Erica and Laura filmed our live band performance in front of an unexpectedly big crowd of over a thousand. They were able to capture both the band and audience and hooked into the sound equipment to get a professional sound to the audio. We were thrilled with the video footage and very happy with their reasonable fees. They were a pleasure to work with!

June and Frances are amazing. They have a full-stack team to provide EVERYTHING. My now wife and I hired them as our engagement and wedding photographers, DJ, flowers and videographers. They are professional and talented. We are still getting compliments on our engagement pictures and wedding video! We can't wait to see our wedding pics. I highly recommend this team. They won't disappoint.

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.

Gabe is amazing! We got started late on a company project creating new images and video content for a website over-haul and Gabe delivered on every request bigger and better than we could have ever imagined. Gabe is extremely professional and patient (lots of personalities on set) and he understood and felt our vision and made the entire day fun. Gabe will exceed your expectations! (also ask about "Q" for help with hair/makeup!)

Anthony did a terrific job with a series of short fresh videos for our website. He filmed one meeting and worked with film we provided from two other meetings. He also did my New professional headshot photo which I love. Anthony understands our energetic brand and added a number of creative touches to bring that energy into the videos. We appreciate his work and will continue to use his services. We will also happily recommend him to others!

Rolling Tide is a brides dream come true! First let me just say if you’re on the fence about getting videography for your wedding don’t be. It’s a complete must find it in the budget to make it happen. We literally watched our wedding video 20x in a row when Dan sent it to us. It’s amazing being able to relive the day! And I couldn’t recommend Rolling tide any more than I can. They are extremely professional, so sweet and fun to have (last thing you want is a stressed vendor at your wedding believe me), and their work is literally Hollywood level! Their cinematic style is incredible. They told us day one that their goal is to make something we’d watch for the rest of our lives and love, and they’ve delivered!

I couldn't ask for a better person than Carly to film our wedding day! I look forward to using Carly's services in the future. I would highly recommend her to all of our friends, family, coworkers, and neighbors! Thank you so much for all of your hard work and professional! We love our wedding video, and most of all the great service that she provided.

With never working with a videographer before, I was definitely nervous to shoot a video. I did not know what to expect but had seen Solful's work and was immediately intrigued. When hearing about my lack of experience in shooting videos, Solful Studios were quick to ensure that I felt comfortable in front of a camera with their constant words of encouragement and positivity. Unquestionably, the entire shoot was an experience I will never forget, as it was filled with laughter and fun. I was very pleased with Solful's work ethic and am proud to say that the video exceeded all of my expectations.

Noah and I had about 4 minutes of children faces, some sitting still and some moving around, that we had to blur out so that you couldn't tell their identities. It turned out to be a particularly difficult project because our original footage was not high res enough to automate tracking, so the project pretty much had to be checked frame by frame, which Noah did. There is not a frame in the 7,500 in which you can discern the identity of any child. He did an excellent job and my clients were very happy too. He's professional, works long hours and turns a project around in short time. Highly recommended. -Dan Sperling, Producer

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.
