Brad photographed our wedding, we chose brad based on his portfolio and a brief conversation explaining what we were looking for in a photographer. He exceeded our expectation and we had numerous comments as to him being the "best photographer" they have seen. We must agree Brad was on time and kept in touch through the entire process. He worked well with our videographer ensuring they captured everything we asked for. It is without reservation that we would recommend his services to anyone. Brad is a true professional in his trade and we are thankful to have found him to capture our very special day. Thank you

2FILMZ STUDIOS was amazing! My husband and I were married on October 8th, 2016 and we barely even noticed him there yet he was there capturing every major and minor event throughout the night. Not only did he have good equipment but it was also minimal and easy for him to get around without being in the way. He made us all feel very comfortable and he fit right in with our casual/fun crowd. I couldn't be happier with the experience and can't wait to see the finished video! I would recommend him to anyone interested in a good yet reasonably priced videographer :)

The three top reasons you should hire ROF Industries for your next videography project: 1) They're professional and responsive. Nicole and her husband Chris are consummate professionals. They're personable, engaging, and they do what they say they're going to do. I solicited bids from a number of local videographers (not necessarily through Thumbtack) and ROF Industries was the only firm that responded on short notice. Nicole and Chris were AWESOME to work with and I can't say enough good things about them as professionals and as people. 2) They deliver high-quality work. Stantec engaged ROF Industries to create a highlight video of our volunteer activity at the Anaheim Ducks First Flight Field Trip. Nicole ran the business side of our interaction while Chris and their employee John handled the videography and all the post-production. The process itself was seamless and flowed smoothly: both Nicole and Chris were incredibly responsive to both VMs and emails and they readily answered all of my questions, which made me feel comfortable and well-informed throughout the process. 3) They're PASSIONATE about what they do AND IT SHOWS! If you enjoy working with passionate, energetic professionals, ROF Industies has them! Nicole and Chris are literally brimming with enthusiasm and it comes through in all of their correspondence and in the quality of the finished product. Simply watching the amazing two-minute highlight video they developed for us will have you on your feet, blood pumping, and wishing it lasted longer. Amazing job! I would highly recommend ROF Industries for your next videography project. I can't imagine a more positive, rewarding videography experience! Thank you, Nicole and Chris!

Lou was AMAZING! I have worked with a lot of videographers and so far Lou has been the best. He made sure he understood every aspect of our event so that he could do the best job possible and was accommodating to all my requests. And his communication throughout the entire process could not have been better. I knew that when the day of our event came, he was going to be their to deliver! Our conference is jam packed with a lot of awards and presentations. He made sure to get it all and then some. When it came to editing, he had a few samll requests and I was happy to oblige. He used it to give it that high-end professional touch. High quality and super organized! I would highly recommend Lou for all your videographer needs!! Especially business conferences. Thank you Lou for all your hard work! It is greatly appreciated!

Palo and Alex were our wedding videographers and put together an amazing edit! It was super easy working with them leading up to our big day and the day-of. They're fun people and got along well with our photographers and other vendors. We received our deliverables ( + raw footage) within reasonable amount of times. HIGHLY recommend them for any wedding. Your wedding day really is a blur, and we were more than happy with our decision to go with Palo to capture all the feels of the day/night.

Joel is an excellent videographer and I highly recommend him. He is professional/responsible, patient, takes pride in his work, and does more than required. It is not just a job for him. Was on the fence about having a video and am so glad that I have this remembrance. He captured the event, with things I had forgotten, and was skilled at interviewing friends/relatives -- all at a very reasonable price. He is flexible and a pleasure to work with. Thank you, Joel!

I hired Keida day before a wedding for my sister in law. Which we didn't expect we would need one. He was SO accommodating and also went above and beyond to stay a bit longer than discussed for our event. He is so fast, efficient and very friendly. He came right on time and due to the last minute booking from phone consultation to day of, he worked with us the best he could. His example works were much better than the other videographers who gave a rate to our budget price. My gut told me to trust him, pay the extra and be his first client for Thumbtack. It was beyond what I expected and he did an excellent job and more! I wish I could give more stars than 5!

My favorite thing about working with Luis was his friendly mannerisms and respect for those in attendance at our wedding. He and his helper did an outstanding job with recording us in the perfect manner. We've shared the videos with our friends and family and everyone really enjoyed watching them. Our family members that couldn't make it out to our wedding were in tears after seeing the highlights. We are super glad that we hired newlywed cinema and Luis. Couldn't have asked for a better videography team!

We were debating about whether or not a videographer would be necessary for our wedding. After working with Bryan we are so glad we decided to hire one, but especially that we hired Bryan. He was very professional during the planning stages as well as on the day of our wedding. He has given us a video that we will cherish for years to come. Total professional. Excellent service. Very responsive and reasonable. I would definitely recommend to others.

Herbert is awesome! We debated getting a videographer for our wedding and we are sure glad we did! We already received a one minute teaser and can't wait to see the rest. The drone footage really adds to the video as well. We are sure glad we hired A Colored Mind! My one min teaser: https://vimeo.com/234272831

We went through the Pros for all of our services. We had Steve K. as our videographer and he was truly amazing. He captured every single moment from start to finish and even took into account the tiny details that were important to me to get on film. He had a great personality, so nice and so professional. And we got our video back the VERY next week - it was waiting in our mailbox when we got back from the honeymoon. LOVED working with Six1nine Productions in general, would absolutely recommend every single time!

Our experience with Briahn as our videographer at our wedding was exceptional! He captured every single perfect moment. He was very well organized and professional. We value his talent and is the only person we trust to capture any important moment in our families life. Reason being, he not only takes great videos but he devotes himself to every single moment he captures. My husband and I were in total aw when we watched our wedding video for the first time. The way he incorporated the music and asked for our opinion as to if we had any special songs we wanted to use was very amiable of him. Which we did, and the placement of the songs in our wedding video were awesome! We did not even know that he had asked wedding guest/family members individually to say a few words to my husband and I. It's the little details like that take a video from great to amazing. And ours was amazing. When I watched the video for the first time it caught me by total surprise and brought me to tears. It really took us back to that moment and allowed us to remember that special day and all the special people that were there to support us, and it made us very happy. It made all our hard work and dedication towards having a fantastic wedding all worth it! Being able to see everyone happy and the perfect moments that Briahn captured between my husband and I is the icing on the cake to a wonderful and memorable wedding. Briahn is truly a talented and admirable professional. Our wedding video will be admired and cherished for a lifetime. That is the reason why it was so important to get the very best videographer, and we did.

Will is an incredibly professional and passionate about his work. From the moment we started talking on the phone, I could tell he knew what he was doing. When Will sent me a highlight video from a wedding he did, it oozed emotion, creativity, and passion- things you want your videographer to have. As a wedding planner, I would highly recommend Will, you can't go wrong with him!

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.
