Jason and a few other Videographers provided me with quotes last year. I selected Jason because he worked with me the best. Unfortunately, due to some personal issues that arose a month ago, my fiancé and I had to cancel our wedding. I contacted Jason very soon thereafter and he quickly worked to return my deposit. We hope that one day, we will be able to plan this all over again and if so, we will definitely like to work with Jason again.

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.

Carrie did a fantastic job on our wedding video! She captured the entire day for us, including the morning preparation and the photo shoot after the reception. She created a moving musical video that blended together so beautifully the highlights of our wedding, truly conveying the magic of those moments. We chose Carrie after considering many videographers because her work really stood out as having a special creative touch. She is a very talented video artist and we highly recommend her services.

I don't know where to begin! I am beyond thankful and grateful for LV. She WORKED HER BUTT OFF at my wedding! I couldn't believe it! It truly felt like there were 10 of her, always where she needed to be. She was an absolute life saver and my moral support for the weeks leading up to the wedding. Any question or concern I had, I could just text her and get a quick response with her professional opinion. Even throughout the 8 months from when I officially hired her, I felt comfortable texting her questions. Whenever we had a phone conversation, I could tell she really cared and took my wedding seriously. She thought of everything I could have never imagined to, and was always right! Even when I didn't want her to be (haha). My parents even told me that LV stayed later than her scheduled time to be there till the very end of cleanup! Also, her husband was our awesome videographer! There are too many kind things to be said about them. Too too perfect. Odineva productions and Odineva events, love you guys so much! THANK YOU!

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!

Best photo team in town. I cannot say enough great things about her and her team :) She goes above and beyond and takes each event personally instead of treating it like "just a gig" as is the case with mos other photographers. She is invested in making the event a success

I placed an ad for a videographer and Fernando responded amazingly quickly! The event was the next day, but he was on time for set up, had professional equipment, captured great footage and put together a highlight real the same day! Additionally, he was reasonable in pricing. I'm very grateful to find someone trustworthy so quickly on here.

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!

    Rob has been producing short videos for us over the past year. He's created about 100 videos -- all between 5-15 minutes long. He's prompt, professional, VERY reliable and responsive....pretty much all of the things you look for in a videographer. Plus, he's fun to work with. Strongly recommend.

    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.
