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!

Thank You Carlos!! HE WAS THE ONLY ONE WHO HAD THE CONFIDENCE TO SHOW US HIS PREVIOUS WORK WHEN MCING A WEDDING!! REALLY INTERACTIVE!!! After we checked his videos, and found out that he has been hired over 265 times....ARE YOU KIDDING ME!! We knew he was the right fit. Lots of Experience!! The other Dj's felt annoyed when we asked them if they knew how to MC a Wedding. Carlos instead....he was so proud about sending us his videos on his first message!! If i could leave 10 stars about his services i would.....So Top Notch!! He was our 1 STOP SHOP for Professional Wedding DJ/MC, Uplighting, String Lighting, Lighted Backdrop for our Sweetheart Table, Monogram,etc. Thanks YOU!!

Jason drove, probably over an hour, to the Riverside area to produce a video for my daughter's softball college recruitment effort. The video he produced and edited was professional and exceeded expectations. Jason was patient and understanding while filming my daughter in live-action shots. Jason charged a reasonable fee for his efforts, with no extra cost for travel. I would recommend his services for video production and editing to anyone.

Copro Studios video taped a continuing education meeting for our group and did a great job. He arrived on time, the prices fit our budget and his editing was very well done. During the meeting, we were attempting to broadcast to other locations and ran in to all sorts of technical difficulties - none of which had anything to do with Copro Studios. The difficulties required us to take a break in the middle of the presentation yet the editing done by Copro Studios does not indicate that there was any problems with the presentation. I would highly recommend Copro Studios and plan to use them again in the future.

In this day in age it is crucial for businesses to not only get their message out quickly, but to captivate and motivate action with their audience. Consumers are bombarded with communications and advertisements all day long. Often times we aren’t even aware of these messages because we have become so accustomed to constant media contact. If your business is going to stand out from the rest of the noise your customers face on a daily basis, you need an effective communication tool. That tool, is a video created by Louie Stevens. Louie Stevens, owner and founder of Films You Feel, lives up to what his company’s name suggests. He doesn’t just throw a few scenes together from a video filmed on an iPhone, add music, and call it a day. Louie creates a professional, broadcast quality video that is guaranteed to capture audiences and promote your company’s message. Louie does more than just film and edit. When we created our video, Louie wrote the script, provided coaching, directed, filmed, and edited, everything. He literally went above and beyond and made the video come alive. I encourage every business, big or small, to contact Louie for a film consolation. You will be amazed with his quality of work and professionalism, all at an affordable rate. Guaranteed that we will be using Louie for all of our future video marketing needs. Dustin Hardin Co-Founder & Creator www.iCampSavvy.com

I needed a combination of event photographs and video of a stage show to capture a special event. I found the perfect match when I hired Blue Child Entertainment to do the job. Landi and her team were extremely professional, knowledgably, friendly, and easy to work with. I received nothing but stellar feedback from my guest regarding the professionalism and friendliness of Landi and her team. And I could not be more pleased than I am with the final product. The photographs are wonderful and it is clear on the video that a lot of time and care was given in the editing process. I would highly recommend Blue Child Entertainment to anyone with photography and video needs – Charlie Gruber

I am in love! Chasing light did a same day edit for us so we were able to show a 3 minute video about 50% of the way through our reception. It was INCREDIBLE! The guests were all amazed and we are so thrilled with just this 3 minute video...cannot wait to see the real deal. I have watched it at least a 100 times already. The use of the drone made it extra special.....I would highly recommend him for this same day edit....really fantastic.

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!

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!

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!

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.

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.
