During our search for a DJ/MC, we were offered varying rates in our quote and some DJs have been less than professional and close to being condescending and demeaning. We were so happy to have found Sylvan via Thumbtack for our reception event. He was easy to work with and very flexible with last minute changes. He considered our song requests, and worked well with us on the Chinese/English introductions of the family. His playlist worked our crowd up and it was so lively! Really appreciate his work and it was a pleasure to work with him. He stayed professional throughout our interactions and the event. His presentation style was down-to-earth and easy going, which was what we wanted. He also provides projector/screen rental and played our video for us during the event. He offered one of the best and reasonable prices and rates. I will recommend him to many others who are looking for a great host/DJ!

We had Luke for our son’s first birthday party .It was a big party of approx 150 people . He made sure he covered each aspect of the party , from decor to food to people and dance . Clicked pictures with all guests . He also made a very nice highlight video of the party with snippets , it came out real nice. The pictures turned out good and he was quick to send them back after editing ... I really enjoyed working with Luke . Best part - he always responded immideately to all questions / texts and calls so there was a good communication . Highly recommended

Joel did a wonderful job recording my mom's memorial service. I was pleased with Joel's professionalism, artistry, and sensitivity. He also did the job at a very reasonable price and provided the video in only one week's time. I'm so glad I hired 7th Stone Media. Now I have a recording I will treasure always.

Well my husband and I just finished watching the video he prepared for us of our wedding day. I am SO impressed!!! He caught all the angles, all the details and I am so happy with the finished product. He had the video done so quickly also. I can't wait to give the dads to our parents. As the bride it's awesome to picture your wedding the way you want it. In the end, you don't get to see it because your the last to walk. He captured the entire wedding from all different angles. Split shots and picture in a picture for the most important parts. If your looking for someone who treats you like family goes above and beyond for your day...THIS IS HIM!!! Thank you so much Steve. God Bless

I was looking for a videographer/video production company to provide me with videography for my wedding. I was skeptical due to the price, but how I would have regretted it not having that video from my wedding. Yes, videography and photography is expensive, but I would almost say that I will cherish my videos more than my photos due to the shear fact that you hear your and your spouse's voice saying your vows; pictures can't do that. Elegant Events Media were so great about payment options, and really worked well for my payment needs. I usually spoke with Brad, but everyone I spoke to were great! They answered as many questions as I had with great patience, and that was so appreciated. Leading up to the wedding they contacted me multiple times to make sure all plans were the same and to clarify any questions they had, but also to make sure I didn't have any more questions for them. On the wedding day, Darin was our videographer, and gosh am I glad we got him. He was so professional, and so easy to work with, but he was also in constant communication with the photographer as well. Watching out video back, there were times he recorded that I didn't even realize he was there, which made it so genuine. I cannot be more thankful for Darin and his time with us at our wedding. With editors of our video were amazing, and although the music we initially picked for the background music wasn't in the video, I ended up LOVING the songs they had picked instead. The turn around time from the wedding to when we got the final project was about 2 weeks, which I thought was totally reasonable. The short video was so fun, and the extended video was also edited with music and transitions which was so appreciated, since I pictured an old home video of all raw footage of the wedding. I would highly recommend Elegant Events Media for videography, and I would HIGHLY recommend Darin for your day.

This is a review for video footage only. I loved my experience with Damian! He was very friendly, attentive to details, worked well with my photographer, punctual and was not at all a distraction to my big day. He & his team were amazing at being discrete in getting their footage! He got the shots he needed & reassured me that the footage he got was more than enough he needed to make a good film! I can't wait to see our film & the magic that Damian & team caught on our big day!

Monty at Taproot was fantastic. He was hired to video a concert, something he'd never done before, but he was a consummate professional asking lots of questions to be great. I would hire them again for sure.

I hired Kevin to be my videographer for my wedding day. He was very professional and did a great job working with my photographer to get the shots they both needed and what I had requested of them. I received the video in a very timely matter and I can't thank him enough. The wedding video was absolutely perfect and everyone who could not attend loved it. Top notch service and the video was perfect, I would recommend him to anyone looking for good quality service.

People go back and forth on videography for their weddings because the thought is they'll never watch the video again. That's true if your video is boring crud. But I watch my video regularly because Paul did an amazing job capturing the day. Thanks to Paul, I get to relive my wedding day over and over again.

From the very start I knew I was lucky to have found Nick to create the video of my wedding. It’s so clearly evident how much he cares about the quality and dependability of his work/art. He loves what he does and is so talented. He’s very respectful and listened to all the small details of what I wanted captured. Thanks for making our wedding video dreams come true!

Faithful Dog Digital did an outstanding job on a demanding, short turnaround project that was of critical importance to my company. They delivered a fantastic video for us under tough shooting conditions and after working through the weekend to help us meet a tight deadline. Couldn't have been happier with their performance and I highly recommend Faithful Dog for any project.

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.
