Michael did a Fantastic job for our wedding. Most professional and out going photographer I've ever come in contact with. He arrived at the venue 2 hours early and stayed til the end. I will definitely recommend him to anyone needing photos now and in the future. Our photos came out great and he was able to catch a lot of great memories.

Marta has been a pleasure to work with. Her photos really capture the spirit of the day. We've got many awesome photos to choose from. My son had a wedding at Granlibakken, Lake Tahoe. Marta suggested a quick drive to the lake to take some shots too, I'm so glad she did, those came out really nice!

Malik and his crew went above and beyond to deliver a video full of special moments for our wedding. He wasn't in the way the day of the wedding yet was able to capture everything for us to remember. I would say the best skill Malik continues to approve upon is his detail to editing in post production. The way our video flowed was perfect. We continue to watch it each Anniversary. I would recommend Malik to shoot and produce your next event! He is truly talented and professional for his age!

Kevin was very professional and did an awesome job with the pictures. He was great with the kids and the action pictures he took came out awesome. I will be using his service again to do other photo shoots and would highly recommended his services. I was very very pleased and this was the first time I hired a photographer to do a photo shoot besides a wedding and was very pleased. Loved the place he recommended for the shoot since I wanted outdoor pictures taken of all the kids for my mom of her grandkids for Easter . I will definitely be using Kevin's photography again. Thank you kevin again the pictures game out great.

Chef couldn't be any better! He hd done a fabulous job on taking photos for my boyfriend and I. Then he did an amazing job working with my boyfriends daughter in taking her 10 month photos! After a photo shoot he quickly scrolls through the hundreds of photos he's took and usually just by quick glance I already want to cry with how good they look. Chef doesn't know it yet but he's my photographer for my future wedding!!

The Tahoe Truckee Community Foundation has used Jeremy Jensen Media for several projects and he never lets us down. We used his photographs for a large publication project that has been sent all over the country and has received high praises from our supporters for the unique and creative perspectives of iconic spots in Lake Tahoe/Truckee. We also used him for portraits for our scholarship recipients. He is easy to work with and very responsive to our needs, as well as adaptable and willing to take creative direction when we have specific requests. I highly recommend his contract work, and his videography is also extremely impressive.

I have always loved watching the ease Dana has in filming different scenes. Hiking up Jakes peak and pulling out her tripod or using her shoulder to film the scene. I have seen her do it at wedding and she always finds a special angle and has something loving to say that shows the gratitude she has for her skill. Keep up the good work.

Tech Works provided the audio and lighting production for my wedding. They lit the room beautifully and even put our names on the wall. Craig and his staff were great to work with and took care of all the details. Highly recommended!

Jason was a true professional from start to finish. When we first began to talk about planning for my wedding day, he listened to everything I had to say, and gave me great input on different option for documenting our special day. Jason was exactly where he needed to be the day of the wedding, although you could barely tell he was there because he was so respectful of our space. Believe me, as a jittery bride, this was a huge plus for me. He was extremely professional, but also great to talk to as we started with our video footage after the ceremony. Now to the most important part...the video! Oh the highlight reel...it is absolutely perfect. This was the reason I wanted to hire Jason to begin with. This is not your average wedding video...it is a breathtaking overview of the day done in such a unique way...I wouldn't change a thing. In fact, I am now asking Jason to do an additional video for us with more wedding footage because he is really incredible at putting it all together. If you want a video that truly speaks to the most special day of your life, hire Jason at Videoquest Productions...you will be thrilled you did.

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.
