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.

Chris is absolutely perfect. We had the privilege of having him photograph our wedding recently and could not have been happier. He has GREAT communication, professionalism, and just downright loves his job. Most importantly, he is SUPERB in his craft. Chris has left us with the most gorgeous pictures we will be looking back through for the rest of our lives. Easy as pie to work with, offers an incredible value for his rate, and an outstanding guy. We can go on and on and on. If you are in need of a photographer for ANY event, do yourself a favor and give all your stress to Chris. He will take care of you and then some. We can't wait to use him again!

I recently used 1Man1Woman Designs for photography for an event at our house. Jessica and Bobby were very responsive to my request for information and also came and spoke to us for a while, checked out our location in advance. They were on-time for the event and even stayed longer than we had originally agreed upon so that they could take more candid shots. Jessica took a good number of photos so that we could have several to choose from. She turned them around back to us within a couple of days. I had a very good experience working with them. There is only one area that would recommend that any prospective clients think about in advance and that is the lighting. We had our event outdoor in the evening. This impacted the quality of some photos with the sun streaks and shadows from trees. All in all, we were happy with the value that 1Man1Woman Designs provided.

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.

The quality of his work, his professional attitude, the fun and relaxed atmosphere, the quick turnaround, the great results - what more is there to say? This is one amazing photographer! I was ambivalent about having a professional portrait shot taken, worried about the entire experience. But Aamir made the whole event comfortable and fun - made me immediately feel relaxed. And the results! Way beyond my expectations. I'm so pleased with the photos - they capture exactly what I wanted to communicate. (And this from a woman who hasn't liked a photo of herself in many, many years. Honestly, I can't believe I'm using the word "fun" in the same paragraph as "photo of myself.") I'm already planning how to get my whole family together so Aamir can work his magic for us!

The gentlemen of Fine Dying surpassed our expectations as our event photographer for my 40th birthday party. Victor, our actual photographer for the night, was extremely professional and responded to all our queries in a timely manner. Should we need another photographer again in the future, I would definitely give these guys a call! Thanks Victor and Sebastian!

I have worked with Joe on several projects. At the 2016 NAMM Show in Anaheim, he shot and edited more than 10 videos over a four day span and all were just excellent. High quality, with pristine sound, to boot. We also worked with Ducati for a Fender/Ducati partnership and took to the streets to make a creative promotional video that showcased a great scavenger hunt/post-party event. I'd definitely work with Joe again! - Mike Duffy Senior Editor Fender.com

Wow!! Gilbert (DJ Goodtimes) is AMAZING. He recently DJ'd our event. Right away he took notice to the crowd & played what they wanted to hear. His professionalism alone is going to keep him busy for years to come, not to mention the unlimited supply of GREAT music. Thank You! I'm already looking forward to using you again in the future!

I hired Keida day before a wedding for my sister in law. Which we didn't expect we would need one. He was SO accommodating and also went above and beyond to stay a bit longer than discussed for our event. He is so fast, efficient and very friendly. He came right on time and due to the last minute booking from phone consultation to day of, he worked with us the best he could. His example works were much better than the other videographers who gave a rate to our budget price. My gut told me to trust him, pay the extra and be his first client for Thumbtack. It was beyond what I expected and he did an excellent job and more! I wish I could give more stars than 5!

Joseph was extremely professional and our video turned out ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. During our wedding, hardly anyone even noticed we had a videographer because he was very discrete and not disruptive at all. Very professional and timely as well. Our video turned out better than I could have ever expected and it captured our day so well. The quality of the editing and the music choice exceeded our expectations! I would highly recommend hiring him for your wedding or any other event!

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.
