Thomas did a great job capturing our wedding at Wine & Roses in Lodi! Very professional and friendly person. He was never in the way or distracting like I have seen with other wedding photographers and yet he was still able to take so many amazing and memorable photos. Thank you!

Lolita is an amazing professional! More than a photographer Lolita is a great human being... we hired her for our courthouse wedding and without a doubt was the best thing I did! She was there early took a bunch of great pictures, during all the wedding proceedings she was taking pictures of us and also my family and friends. The great thing about working with Lolita is how much fun we had and After the awesome experience working with Lolita she gave us a lot of pictures of our courthouse wedding. A day we will remember forever! We will definitely hire Lolita many other times!!!

Alena was the photographer for my wife and I's wedding this summer and we cannot say enough good things about the fantastic job she did! We decided to hire her based on the quality of the images we had seen and we were glad that the ones from our day matched up in terms of quality. Alena is very professional and was in communication with us through the entire process, we met to discuss the day and she was genuinely interested in the event and things were discussed in detail. Then a few weeks later we all met again at the venue so she could see it and get a feel for the location. This thoroughness was very much appreciated and put our mind at ease that the photography was in safe hands. On the day Alena was great, was there early and knew exactly what to do. We have really nice pictures of the preparation before the ceremony, guests arriving, the ceremony itself and the reception after. The pictures were natural and Alena got the most out of the location with some beautiful shots. We took some nice family photos after the ceremony and it was very relaxed as we weren't being bossed around like some photographers would do. Alena was so easy to work with and flexible to what my wife and I needed which is so important on a day like that. No stress or drama. A lot of our guest commented on the great job she was doing. Pictures were sent to us when promised, and the price was a great deal all things considered! Obviously Alena spent some time editing the pictures which is appreciated also and shows how seriously she takes things. Overall, very pleased with Alena. Great professional service, she is super talented and a very nice person to work with. What more can you ask for? Would recommend to all.

Talented, professional, and flexible. He took my graduations photos from UC Davis and met up with me in the area. He brought his equipment and implemented all my ideas. Overall, open-minded and great to work with. His pricing was cheaper than most photographers and photos were received sooner than I thought. I highly recommend.

Pascale was AMAZING! First of all, we booked her just two days prior to our wedding and she was able to book us in that short of notice after our previous videographer cancelled on us. Even with that short of notice, she was in constant contact with us and wanted all the details of our wedding! We had two separate locations and she was still able to get every angle and capture everything we wanted! She even captured moments for us that the photographer didn't even get, which we are so thankful for! We got our video about a month after our wedding and it is absolutely amazing. She made it feel so personalized and got every important and fun moments you want captured on your wedding day! She even went online and found some of our engagement photos and other wedding photos guests had taken and added them to our video. No doubt book her, you will not be disappointed!

Damian was such a pleasure to work with. They are professional and super open minded to different opinions. We wanted to capture the authentic, natural moments on our big day, and their team nicely delivered that. With 2 photographers and 2 videographers, Damian and his team edited our photos the way we wanted and made an awesome video that powerfully summarized the wedding. We would highly recommend working with Heart + Soul.

Justin is truly a talented photographer. He was open minded and patient, and easy to communicate with leading up to our shoot. He listened to exactly what I wanted - candid, non-posed family portraits, and every shot turned out how I envisioned. I'm a fan of natural lighting and composition and Justin's photography style is what drew me to his work. I'm more than happy with our family photos and will undoubtedly be using J.O. Photography in the future!

My husband and I were very much on the fence about hiring a videographer for our wedding (mostly due to cost) but I can tell you with confidence after receiving our videos from Sway Media that this is the one thing that I am absolutely thrilled that we "splurged" on. Sway Media is absolutely wonderful to work with. They are extremely professional, punctual, flexible, and most importantly TALENTED! My husband and I could not be happier with how our highlight video turned out and the additional feature films of our ceremony and reception are wonderful as well. We have watched our highlight video probably 100 times already, it is truly the best way to re-live our wedding day. We have received so many compliments on how fantastic our highlight video is. Along with our photographer, Sway Media was the best thing that we spent money on for our wedding and to be perfectly honest their pricing was extremely reasonable for how talented they are. A wedding video is something you will treasure forever, make sure you book with the best! You will be so happy with the results if you book with Sway Media, they are AMAZING!

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 does it cost for a photographer for a wedding?

Finding the right wedding photographer can make a big difference for your ceremony. Nationally, the average wedding photographer’s price ranges from $800 to $1,000, but costs can be much higher in areas like Chicago, New York or Los Angeles where some couples spend $2,000 to $5,000 or more for the photographer they want. Factors that can affect your wedding photographer prices include the photographer’s reputation and experience. Heavy hitters can command top rates, especially during wedding-season weekends. Day of the week also affects your cost. You may get a $200 discount on wedding photographer prices if you get married on a Friday in November rather than a Saturday in June. Time onsite is also an important cost factor. Hiring a photographer to snap photos from the moment you wake up until after last call at the reception is going to cost more than five hours of pictures during the day. Multiple photographers, special lighting, and videography will also increase your costs. Ultimately you want to find someone who has a style you love and can provide the number of edited shots you want for a price you can handle. Learn more about hiring a wedding photographer.

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.
