Keida was so awesome and easy to work with! He did my wedding video and we were THRILLED. My sister and a couple close friends are in the video production business so they’re always extra critical with videos and they said they could not stop watching it over and over, they LOVED it so much! After I posted it to social media I even received several out-of-the-blue text messages from random people in my life saying how it made them cry, made them laugh, and it was absolutely beautiful! Keida is extremely responsive and on top of his work and is constantly weaving his passion for his work into how he makes his videos. There was some problems with how the microphone picked up my husbands vows and Keida went out of his way to send the audio to another professional (completely free of charge!) to have it cleaned up and perfected so that my video would be just that much more perfect. He even went out of his way to kindly suggest music that really captured the right vibe of the video and how the evening was- it was perfect!! Talk about reliving that day! Thank you so so much, Keida! I hired Keida off of thumbtack after reading other reviews so if you’re reading this, yes, this is a sign you should definitely inquire- it’s hard to find such an awesome, easy-to-work-with, hardworking, passionate-about-his-craft videographer these days, especially at his fair and amazing prices. Great experience, can’t say enough good things, thank you again Keida!

Pascale provided excellent service for our wedding that took place on September 16th. She went above and beyond her duties to make sure our wedding video was great, we never imagine that the video would be so beautiful. When we received it in the mail it came in this beautiful keepsake box with our name and wedding date on the front. Before and during the wedding Pascale assured me she would do her best to make sure we was pleased with her work and we was beyond pleased. She was very professional and I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for an professional videography. Job Well Done!!! Thank You and I'm So Glad We Met!!!! Derral and Susie

Heart + Soul Films provided photography and videography at my wedding recently, and they were as punctual and professional as could be! They were very patient as it was long and hot day, and managed not to miss any special moments in the busy timeline we had. I have not gotten the final photos and videos yet, but the few I have seen I am amazed with and cannot wait to see the rest! I would definitely hire them again.

We worked with Jim for our wedding video, and he did an excellent job from beginning to end. For something so special as this, we wanted to be sure we hired somebody that we could trust, and that was open to the particular style that we wanted to accomplish. Jim was very responsive to our initial inquiry, and made sure to set up time where we could meet or facetime to discuss our vision. We were happy to learn that Jim had tons of experience in wedding videography. He answered all of our questions, and also gave us ideas and insights as to how other brides and grooms have set up their videos. He was a terrific listener and took to heart our preferences. He communicated with us regularly before the wedding, and on the wedding day showed up right on time to kick things off. He was not intrusive at all and fit right into the flow of the day. The shots he was able to get as a one-man show were terrific you'd think he had a whole team with him!! He captured the beauty of the day, the venue, the feelings before, during and after the ceremony, the guests, the fun, everything!!! We were extra appreciative that our wedding had an unexpected delay before the reception, and Jim stuck around like a trooper and didn't miss a beat. We were so pleased watching the final video, that this is something we will treasure for the rest of our lives. Talk about great value. As somebody unfamilar with videography, I felt nervous about picking the right vendor, but feel very lucky that we stumbled across Jim. Highly recommend!

Hai was amazing! He was so friendly and professional through the entire process. He knew exactly how to get the best shots, and recorded everything for our wedding. So grateful we decided to get a videographer for our wedding day (the day is such a rush and blur!), and absolutely delighted to have found Hai and his team to record something we will treasure and watch! The shorter video he edited for us was so beautiful!!! Thanks so much Hai!!!!

Rebecca was early to our event. She was very productive and spontaneous as she managed to get pictures of almost everyone involved in our wedding. She also took away the stresses of our big day and with her loud voice got all the family and group picture shots dones really fast. She was also very understanding in our schedule and location. She was able to adjust very well to our changing schedule during the reception. We really enjoyed her outstanding service, and would recommend her to all our friends and families. Her picture quality and vision in the beauty of our wonderful Wedding day really showed the joy and happiness of all who were in attendance. SHE IS AMAZING AT WHAT SHE DOES. Her individual picture shots were great and her group photo management was helpful in organizing a lot of people to be where they needed to be quickly.

Working with Arnell was wonderful. He was very thorough in finding out what we wanted to be filmed at our wedding. He was there early to set up, and everything went smoothly. I never felt like he was in the way, or even noticed the stationary cameras. His rates were very reasonable and I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Shelby photographed our July wedding. Shelby gets deeply immersed in her work, and her care really shows. She worked hard to find the right locations and make the quality of the natural light work for us in the beautiful wooded setting. She really captured the emotional mood of each moment. She was amazingly unobtrusive during the ceremony, and took fabulous photos of the important moments of our special day. Even the posed family shots seem natural and truly show the people and the joy of the occasion, and the candid shots make it seem as if she had been everywhere at once. She took so many wonderful photos it has been hard to choose our favorites. It is such a pleasure to relive our wedding through Shelby's photographs.

Joshua does Videography and Photography for my socialization program for kids, teens and adults with Autism. He documents events such our exhibit at Maker Faire Bay Area and our Annual Film Premiere. The program is Autism Social Connection at Gatepath, and it teaches individuals with Autism how to make films, from scripting to acting, directing to editing. As a program in a non-profit agency, it is critical that we have documentation of our services. So Joshua's services help highlight the program's mission and accomplishments for outreach and donors. His videos and photos are polished. He also works closely with the program staff for the best experience for our individuals new things and changes can cause a lot of anxiety. Joshua is familiar with the demographic. He is easy to work with and respects confidentiality when it is necessary.

From the very start I knew I was lucky to have found Nick to create the video of my wedding. It’s so clearly evident how much he cares about the quality and dependability of his work/art. He loves what he does and is so talented. He’s very respectful and listened to all the small details of what I wanted captured. Thanks for making our wedding video dreams come true!

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.
