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!

For our wedding, Brad's entire team new exactly how to direct us and the guests when we needed direction and how to blend into the background when it was time to capture those special moments; all with a great attitude and smile.

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.

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.

Steve Grossman videographed our daughter's reception. He did an excellent job. He came early, took the trouble to identify all the family members and patiently video taped all parts of the reception hall and decorations. The video included all his handywork and was excellent. we were very happy with the final DVDs. He was very easy to work with and we would recommend Steve to any one who would like to their memories photographed. Thank you Steve for your wonderful work and for your friendly attitude. - MA

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!

June and Frances are amazing. They have a full-stack team to provide EVERYTHING. My now wife and I hired them as our engagement and wedding photographers, DJ, flowers and videographers. 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.

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.

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.

I worked with Daniel on a video project over the course of 6 months. Daniel was very professional, easy to work with, always responsive to emails and phone calls and I was struck by his ability to make others being video taped feel at ease. His technical expertise, along with his willingness to collaborate and work well with others contributed to the success of this project. I would definitely recommend Daniel- his work is outstanding and he is a pleasure to work with.

Kristen was given the task to record, edit (with music to go with a theme), and finish two videos for me. One for a plus-size swimwear line and the second for a cover-up collection. The videos turned out great. Everything from the feel, the look, the music, the vibe was so in sync with the lines and not once did I feel like the videos came from the same person. Kristen's specialty is giving each video she does something to set it apart from others she has done without losing herself as an artist.

When I was looking for a photographer to shoot my wedding, I did my full due diligence. I checked ALL of the review sites and interviewed all the big photographers in LA. I was even referred to so many talented photographers who did my friend's weddings. It's an exhaustive process but I wanted everything to be just right. A lot of money was spent on my dress, my husband's tux, the venue, catering, etc. I wanted someone who was as detailed oriented as I am, and had a vision on how to execute the shots. Finally I met Carl and his wife Desiree, and I had a good feeling right away. They were so friendly, funny, and professional. He was detailed about everything and let me know what we were going to get and when we were going to be receive it. One of the best things about their service is their price transparency. Almost all the photographers I checked out didn't have specific prices on their websites. They just say "starting at". I always felt like it was a shake down. But they were upfront about pricing and it was a steal for what they give you. They were our favorite vendors on the day of the wedding. They were interacting with our guests and all our family just loved them. I think they ran out of business cards by the end of the night. Carl just had a way of making us feel at ease in front of the camera because we never had a professional take photos of us before. We were hoping to find someone to make us feel relaxed in front of the camera, and they have a real gift of getting all of us to be ourselves and have fun. Our candids were amazing. The photos and the videos were breathtaking. I feel really lucky to stumble upon Carl and Desiree. They'll be shooting our baby shower when the time comes.

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.
