These guys are the best! They are professional, artistic, reliable and fun! I loved the video and the still photos they delivered. They were easy to make arrangements with, showed up on time, and had my video and photos delivered to me electronically and by DVD via the mail. You can't find a better to team to capture your wedding!

I planned a surprise engagement for my gf and hired joe last minute. I read his reviews and his package pricing was absolutely unbeatable. Unfortunately we had a last minute change of venue due to weather. Joe was able to change venues and plans without skipping a beat. Because it was a surprise he was excellent about staying below the radar and she never had a clue. He was on time, friendly, dressed appropriately, and absolutely amazing. We are waiting on our final video and pictures which I'm sure is going to turn out amazing! I would hire joe again without a second thought. We will most likely use joe for our wedding too! I honestly couldn't have asked for any better.

Jami was excited about our project from the beginning and went the extra mile all the way to the end! I was Over The Moon with the results! Not only did she capture the event, she captured the feel of the Roaring 20's right down to the detail of the film style of the day, in our video. We chose to have video and stills and the results were stunning! I can't think of one thing that she missed. Truly amazing and will now be a huge part of my annual party.

Mark video taped our wedding for us, and he did an incredible job! The video came out beautiful! He managed to capture all of the important and fun moments of every aspect of our ceremony and reception without even being noticed. I don't know how he did it, but I'm so glad we hired him. I can hardly wait until we know someone who can benefit from his professionalism and expertise!

Working with Rand has been great! He really elevated the level of quality of our annual event video, from the video quality to the editing and final product. He was extremely easy and professional to work with in this whole process, which made my job easier particularly the day of the event. I would highly recommend Rand for your business video project.

JOB: Videography of Large Live Multi-Artist Concert Event (incl Pre-Show / Concert / Post-Show). As a first time client of Chris O/Attis Videography Services, I couldn't have been more pleased from introductory contact to receiving the completed raw video footage (Attis creative editing to follow). An entertainment professional and concert event producer myself, all the essential qualities I know that identify 'top notch, top quality' professionalism and services, Chris O/Attis possesses - excellent customer service, continuous communication and follow-thru throughout the entire process (pre-event prod/planning/prep to event completion), very caring / conscientious / courteous / ez personality to work with, very thorough and anticipatory attention to detail w/ every aspect of the event (left nothing to question), always punctual (or even slightly ahead). In my business, the options of video / tech svcs are many and 'promise or talk a good talk'. Chris O/Attis is the real deal, 'walks the walk & the talk'! I will use Chris O/Attis services again and highly recommend Attis to anyone needing top quality professional videography svcs ~ S. Dadas, Founder / Owner / Artist / Producer SD ENTERTAINMENT

Mark is amazing! He was our wedding videographer and we could not have been more pleased. He is extremely professional and responsiveness, and so great to work with. The wedding video came out perfect. We provided zero direction and he captured all the details and took us right back to all the incredible feelings of the day. Mark is a true professional and incredibly talented. We will certainly use him for any video services we will need in the future and would highly recommend him.

Erica and Laura filmed our live band performance in front of an unexpectedly big crowd of over a thousand. They were able to capture both the band and audience and hooked into the sound equipment to get a professional sound to the audio. We were thrilled with the video footage and very happy with their reasonable fees. They were a pleasure to work with!

Words cannot even express how happy I am that I found Brandon Fate for my wedding video. His work is incredible and beyond beautiful. The moment I saw some of his previous pieces, I knew he was a vendor I was highly interested in working with and he made the process so easy and fun. He's incredibly professional, respectful and kind. I was so excited to receive our wedding video knowing the talent he had, however my husband and I were blown away when we saw how Brandon captured our special day. Our wedding video was everything and more than I could have dreamed of. He captured us - our personalities, our special details and most importantly the love and joy that was surrounding our day. I can't recommend Brandon highly enough. He was amazing in every way and I'm so thankful we have our beautiful video to cherish for a lifetime.

They are professional and talented. We are still getting compliments on our engagement pictures and wedding video! We can't wait to see our wedding pics. I highly recommend this team. They won't disappoint.

With less than a month to the wedding and no videographer booked, I thought we weren't going to have a professional recording of our wedding. I found Daniella through Thumbtack and after looking through the videos on her website, knew we had to book her! She worked within our budget to give us full coverage and the raw footage from the event, as well as a 3-4 minute highlight video set to music. She even attended our rehearsal to scope out the venue and take some footage that she incorporated into our highlight video! The videographer who shot our wedding was Adam, he was like a ghost, every time I looked up he was there, but he never got in the way or stood out--which was perfect. Daniella sent us the highlight video within two weeks following the wedding and has been an absolute pleasure to work with.

Merve has been absolutely incredible to work with. Not only was she on time, professional, kind, and gracious during our entire actual filming process, she has done nothing short of incredible editing for our promo video. We are super picky, and were concerned about looking good on camera, but Merve knew exactly the lighting to use with us, and was super receptive to all of our requests. The video is amazing and we will absolutely be working with her for all of our videos moving forward. Totally exceeded all of my expectations.

Hiring a video crew across the country for an important project makes me anxious. You just can’t be sure of what you will get. JMaverick Studios saved me on a last-minute, high-profile project in the Bay Area, one that had to be done right. JMaverick Studios could not possibly have been more accomodating and professional, and the video they sent us was perfect for our needs. They do beautiful work, adding a brilliant artistic touch. Expect to be pleasantly surprised about your experience with them. 5/5 all the way.

We had an outstanding experience with DH Media Productions. They have professional sound and video equipment, so the sound quality was excellent and even captured the voices of our most quiet speakers. They are extremely professional and effective at communication--I enjoyed working with them, and our guests commented at how friendly they were. There editing techniques are great--they put those little bells and whistles into your video that only professionals would think of and be able to do (chapters in your DVD, artistic editing, and so on). I always got timely replies to my emails, and David kept me abreast of their progress. You can trust your experience to DH Media Productions!

It's been so GREAT working on my music video with someone of Fumihiro Hirota's talents, experience, enthusiasm, and reliability! He's truly done it ALL for me on this project -- filmed the video in multiple shoots, expertly edited it, communicated & collaborated with me always in a timely/professional way, given me great advice on how best to share my work in the online world, etc. I consider myself quite lucky to have found him, I couldn't be happier with the final product he's given me, and I very highly recommend Mr. Hirota's services at Media Focus to anyone interested in working with the BEST in the business!

This person was so amazing. She took the best video of my wife and i’s wedding day! Not only was the footage great, but she was extremely professional and a pleasure to be around. My wife loved her personality, which made it very easy to act natural when someone is filming them. She got videos of things that I didn’t even get to experience myself as the groom, so watching back again was like a new experience in itself. Her prices are great for the amazing quality I received. I would recommend her for any event, photo and video. We hired her for video, but she took better pictures than the photographer we hired. Thank you Danyell! 5 stars all the way.

I honestly cannot say enough wonderful things about Just Love Films. From their positive attitude and professionalism to their stunning talent, I could not have chosen a more wonderful videographer. Our wedding day was stressful from the start, but as soon as Just Love Films got there and started filming video I felt like things were falling into place. I was already assured of Just Love Films considerable talent after seeing videos on their website, which I loved! But when I got the highlights video I was brought to tears. They managed to capture not only the best moments, but the spirit and energy of the best day of my life! Thank you

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.  
Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
