Albert did a phenomenal job with my wedding video! He was also a delight to work with! He was so patient and worked ever so hard (my wedding was a 12 hour event!) I think the hardest part for him was editing the video and making sure all the highlights I wanted were included in my video. He did not disappoint! I got every clip I wanted, and he incorporated all my favorite music and did everything I had requested. It's been a year since my wedding and recently watched the video again and all the best memories were captured! Thank you Albert for being the most responsive, patient person to work with and developing a quality wedding video that my husband and I (and now our daughter) will always enjoy!!!!

Lawrence provided both videography and photography services for our wedding. He worked really hard, putting in extra hours, and delivering to us tremendous value at a very reasonable cost. He did all of this while barely being noticed throughout our wedding. Anyone getting married should certainly consider Lawrence!

We hired Anthony from DJ Stallion for our wedding at the Blackhawk Country Club. Anthony was very accommodating in playing any type of music that we wanted to play. He put together a Beautiful smooth jazz, Van Morrison & Frank Sinatra cocktail and dinner music combo which were lovely choices by him. We chose almost 50 dance songs to be played at our wedding reception and he blended them beautifully, one after another. He also was very personable and kind to my husband and I and also our guests. Anthony took the reigns and perfectly timing all the ceremony music, our introduction into the ballroom with our song choice, the Introduced of of guests who said the blessing before dinner, the speeches, our first dance and then got right into the dance music. Anthony was also available for any questions that I had prior. All I can say is he’s awesome and he hit it out of the park. I have been to hundreds of weddings and he is the ‘BEST DJ EVER’!!! A group of our guests/friends are excited to have a party hopefully soon so we can hire him again. To be our DJ. Thanks again Anthony Cheers, TONI & MIKE

Finding wedding photography and videography was so hard and not to mention expensive. A friend told me about thumbtack, so I figured I'll give it a try and am sure glad I did. Shelia was so helpful and very informative about everything. She is so professional at all times . I told her my budget and she stuck rite to it and threw in some extra things for me. She offers beautiful engagement photos which turned out beautiful. We went to the Japanese Tea Garden in Harward , CA, and it was absloutely beautiful. On the day Of our wedding Shelia and Pam Were there early. They got pictures of the wedding set up, tables , flowers, cake, etc.. Shelia got pictures of everything I asked for. From the beginning to the end. And the most important she got some great shots of all the kids before they got all dirty it was beautiful. After the wedding Shelia got back to me in a week with all the pictures we had to pick threw, once we made our choices she put them in a beautiful album and sent them rite out us. I would recommend Shelia services to anyone looking for a professional and hard working photographer who takes pride in her work and making sure your needs are met on your special day. Thanks Shelia It turly was a pleasure! Sincerely Mr. & Mrs. De'Monta & Yolanda Hichks

We had our pre wedding photoshoot done by Diane and it was a great experience. We were visiting SF for a few days and were wondering if we will be able to capture the essence of the place in the photoshoot, but Diane drove us to the most beautiful places in the city and clicked lifelong memories. We had some pictures clicked with our friends as well and they came out really well. Diane was very flexible and it was fun spending the entire day with her. She made us really comfortable and helped us all along the photoshoot. I will highly recommend her to couples for their wedding and prewedding photoshoots.

Patrick was our wedding photographer, and he went above and beyond for us in too many ways to list. He was professional, hardworking and thoughtful in every way, disappearing into the background yet catching so many amazing moments throughout the evening. Patrick is not your traditional wedding photographer, but that was not what we were looking for. His work speaks for itself, and we recommend him highly.

Wendy was absolutely amazing to work with - she was prompt and the setup was fantastic! She had lots of fun props and her machine was very unique (LOVED the green screen). More than anything, she was very, very patient - we used LuvlyProduction for our wedding afterparty so you can imagine the state of people cramming into the photobooth at that time of the night. The photos and the printouts were of high quality, and she provided more than 2 copies per photo which was a very nice touch! Highly, highly recommend Wendy and LuvlyProductions for your event!

DJ Noel provided DJ services for our wedding and reception in our backyard. He was fabulous. Everyone loved the music, and he surprised us with some cool special effects. He provided music from 4:30 to 11:00, took requests, and we provided him with a play and do not play list. He was on time, and even played a little past 11. Nothing went wrong, although we did have to supply a light for him which was a little unexpected.

Or dj'd our wedding in 2008 and was excellent. In two words - Dance Party! He got everyone dancing - the young and the old. He was very professional and easy to work with. He played the songs we asked for and also played songs we didn't even think of but when each one came on, everyone was like, "Aw yeah!" There was not one low point over the entire four hours. We recommend him highly!

Vinnia was amazing! I did not have time for a trial of my hair and makeup, but I sent her some images of what I was looking for, for myself and my two bridesmaids. On the day of my wedding Vinnia arrived on time and well prepared. She set up quickly and started with my two bridesmaids. Her hair and makeup were amazing! I don't think I have ever looked as good as I have on the day of my wedding! Not only did it look great for the ceremony but it survived the whole night, including a lot of dancing (and sweating). My bridesmaids also loved their hair and makeup and were simply beautiful. If you need someone to do your hair and makeup - look no further! Vinnia was very responsive before the event and very easy to work with. She is very professional and I would hire her again in a heartbeat.

We had TwinSpin for our wedding, and we're super satisfied with his service. Before the wedding, he spent time to learn my needs and address my concerns. His price was competitive; he worked with me on prices and threw in couple extras. His equipment was professional and as described, and everyone could hear in our outdoor wedding. At the reception, he was energetic and was able to engage the crowd without any directions from me. Overall, better than expected. You can hire him with confidence.

Rebeca was an amazing officiant! She is so organized, thoughtful, sweet, and responsive. When we first met her she was prepared with an outline for the ceremony and provided a lot of helpful and thoughtful suggestions. We ended up getting a rose arrangement for my now husband’s mother since her birthday was the day following the wedding. She also sent us a lot of samples for love quotes, vows and ring exchanges which were very helpful. Rebeca did our ceremony in English and Spanish and it ended up being so beautiful.

Gwen was so great to work with to officiate our parent's 50th wedding anniversary vow renewal ceremony. She really took her time to get to know their story to make it a very custom and special ceremony. She also was so helpful with great ideas for the ceremony, and she helped us coordinate speakers, how we walked down the aisle, so she definitely has great experience. We would not only recommend her but we would hire her again in a heartbeat!

We had such an amazing experience. Lara took our engagement and wedding photos and honestly, we could not have picked a better photographer. She was always able to capture the most precious moments in a very natural and elegant way. On the day of the wedding, she was professional, calm, but most importantly, she had a great, positive attitude. The photos came out absolutely stunning!!! We have viewed the gallery (so many times already!) and we absolutely LOVE the pictures, she captured so many details and emotions. The more we looked at the photos the more we loved them. We are seriously blown away with how all our photos turned out. We can never thank Lara enough for her amazing talent, positive attitude, and love she showed up. We highly recommend Lara. You will not regret it.

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.

What does a wedding event coordinator do?

Pulling off a large, complex wedding or an elegant, small affair requires juggling myriad details, including the officiant, food, drink, wedding cake, entertainment, transportation, rehearsal dinner, photography, equipment rentals, venue reservations and more. A wedding event coordinator can help you keep track of these details, overseeing the planning process and managing everything on the day of your wedding. Each wedding coordinator (and wedding) is different, but in general you can expect an event coordinator to:

  • Help you devise a realistic wedding budget and hold your vendors to it.
  • Map out a master plan that includes all of the details including ceremony music, favors, the guest book and more.
  • Suggest ceremony and reception locations that fit your wedding size, budget and vision.   
  • Suggest florists, photographers, bands, caterers and other vendors that fit your budget.
  • Negotiate vendor contracts for the best deals.
  • Create a timeline for the day of the wedding that includes each vendor and member of your wedding party.
  • Mail invitations and track RSVPs.
  • Answer questions about wedding etiquette and current wedding trends.
  • Manage the wedding day from supervising vendors and setup to handling last-minute emergencies.

How do you find a good caterer?

Reviews, interviews and menu tastings will help you find the right catering choice for your big day. Start by screening possible wedding caterers based on past reviews. If a caterer you are interested in has a review that concerns you, ask them about it; how they respond will be very telling. Next, ask about their availability for your wedding date.

If the wedding caterer is available on your date, it’s time to talk about menus and prices. Be clear about what your maximum budget is find out what choices this will allow you. Caterers may custom-create a menu for your event, or they may have menu templates within different price ranges that can guide your decision. A clear budget gives the caterer clear parameters within which to work and offer creative suggestions. Schedule a menu tasting to confirm you love your wedding menu. Once you have a menu and date, and have paid a deposit to reserve the caterer’s services, confirm additional details including when the food will be delivered to the site, what kind of service will be provided, how many servers will be onsite and for how long, and who is responsible for setup and cleanup. The more specific your contract, the fewer worries you’ll have on your wedding day. Get more smart hiring tips here.

What is a wedding planner?

A wedding planner is a professional service provider whose job it is to organize and execute all the details of a couple’s wedding. A wedding planner can be contracted at any stage in the wedding planning process to help to any degree the couple is willing to pay for. Wedding planning is similar to event planning in that a planning team handles the coordination of multiple wedding elements including catering, venue, guests, entertainment, decor, transportation and more. Anyone who has ever been involved in a wedding can confirm that wedding planning is hard work. Experience brings wisdom when it comes to avoiding or resolving day-of challenges. There is no legal regulatory body that oversees or certifies wedding planning as an industry. Anyone who chooses can call themselves a wedding planner. When looking for a wedding planner, be sure to read reviews, and make smart hiring decisions by asking about licenses and insurance.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
