Brad photographed our wedding, we chose brad based on his portfolio and a brief conversation explaining what we were looking for in a photographer. He exceeded our expectation and we had numerous comments as to him being the "best photographer" they have seen. We must agree Brad was on time and kept in touch through the entire process. He worked well with our videographer ensuring they captured everything we asked for. It is without reservation that we would recommend his services to anyone. Brad is a true professional in his trade and we are thankful to have found him to capture our very special day. Thank you

Joe is a truly ambitious and truly talented photographer/videographer! He has shown me and so many other people; a different side of them that they didn't know before. When you have photos taken by Joe, you find that it truly is not just the wonderful experience you had working with him, but the wonderful memories that he has captured for you for life.

ROF Industries headed up by Nicole Pittman-Staab and Chris Staab are videographers/photographers who created a wonderful presentation of an aerobatic jet flight I participated in over Southern California. They were able to set up numerous cameras, recorded the event from visually interesting angles, provided editing, musical scoring and conducted interviews with the participants in a documentary style video. The quality of the work was outstanding, ahead of schedule, and the crew at ROF are self motivated. They were always checking up on things and asking questions to make the product the best it could be for me. Everything went perfectly and better than I imagined. I'm very proud of their work and they made me feel and look like a star. They are very easy to work with, friendly and just plain nice! I am planning another doozy of a project for them next year and I wouldn't consider anyone else but them to pull it off.

Steven was the videographer for my wedding at the Biltmore Hotel in Los Angeles in December 2013. He was a please to work with, fair to deal with, loves his job and sincerely wants the bride and groom to love their video. He is also fast. I got my video shortly after my wedding and my husband and I were very happy with the video. Thanks Steve! Love, Ronda & Calvin

Let me start by saying, planning a wedding and finding the perfect vendors from another state is tough! When my husband and I nervously decided we needed a video, we told each other we were only doing this if we found someone who will make us feel comfortable, and tell our story organically. We did not want the classic video montage, but rather some storytelling aspects and just something that felt effortless. Did I mention we were nervous? We are not video people... pictures only! When we started interviewing videographers, we were striking out left and right. I think we interviewed 20+ before receiving an email from Attis Photography. After a wonderful phone conversation with Anita, who made me feel so comfortable and confident about a wedding video, Josh and I knew we finally found our perfect match! It was as though they new us after a 1.5 hour long phone chat. It seriously is so important to talk with your videographers... let them get to know you and your relationship before the big day. Attis photography did just this. The day came, and we felt like we hired friends to video us. They were easy going, took footage of what the day was, not asking us to pose, and our guest seemed to really enjoy them! What more could we ask for!? One morning we woke up to an email from Attis...it was the link to our video!!! We were without words when we watched our video for the first time on my phone. We laughed and cried all in 7minutes. Attis Photography produced one of the most beautiful memories I have yet to see from my life thus far. So thankful our life crossed their path...thank you Attis- Chis and Anita you are amazing! https://vimeo.com/user53422025

Mark did an excellent job as our wedding videographer. He was professional and didn't miss a beat on our wedding day. I would call it "thorough" (while some videographers might have been in our face, Mark was there without being too evident). A perfect balance. The finished product was just what we wanted and fit our budget perfectly. A rough cut and a beautiful 15 minute edit. Mark captured all the details, even a few things that our photographer missed. We loved our video highlights enough to order a few additional copies. We highly recommend Marabate Studios!

My wife and I hired Laura and Erica at The Vision Field to be the videographers at our wedding and it ended up being one of the best decisions we made throughout our entire lengthy wedding planning process. First of all, Laura and Erica were an absolute pleasure to work with. They were always extremely quick to respond to all of our questions whether they be related to the type of equipment they would be using or the type of videography we wanted them to capture. During our planning meeting with them over the phone they also knew how to ask us all the right questions in order to make sure they would provide us with exactly the type of service we were expecting. And they were always happy and full of energy, which somehow made us even more excited for the big day as it approached. When the wedding day came they arrived early and were fully prepared with all of their equipment. Our ceremony was at a Catholic church, our reception was in the backyard of a private residence, and we stopped for wedding party photos at a third location in between, and throughout all of this movement Laura and Erica were always able to keep up with the group without us having to worry about them. What actually made us most happy with The Vision Field, in fact, is how they managed to capture every single important moment of our wedding day without ever distracting or getting in the way of us or any of our guests. We hardly noticed that they were there at all, and yet they still ended up delivering incredible footage that perfectly captured every aspect of our ceremony and reception. Whenever my wife and I relive our wedding memories by watching and listening to all the high-quality video and audio, we feel as if we're still there, and in this way Laura and Erica have made our wedding last forever. They're not only videographers and photographers but also musicians and audio engineers, and they therefore know exactly how to record and deliver a perfect product package. We certainly made the right choice by asking The Vision Field to be there with us on our big day and we're thrilled with all that they have done for us. They are good people and experienced professionals, and we fully recommend that you choose to work with them too!

We can't say enough great things about Brandon! He was professional from the very beginning. He would reply to emails quickly, his contract was simple and to the point, and he was timely. On the day of our wedding him and his wife (his assistant) were wonderful to work with! They were friendly and hardworking. It was extremely hot out and they didn't complain once... just did their job! I made several special requests such as a longer highlight video and Brandon was very accommodating. We haven't received our full-length video yet (this is expected... our wedding was very recent) but our highlight video came back very quickly and we are in love with it! We definitely recommend Brandon to anyone looking for a wedding videographer!

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.

Listen. Let me just say that words cannot describe how amazing Daniella is as an individual and as a videographer. She is a true professional who knows exactly what she is doing, everyone who spoke with her had nothing but great things to say. I guarantee you will not regret hiring her! But you will regret not hiring her. The authenticity you see in her videos won't be found anywhere else. Your wedding day is something you don't want mediocre footage of so do yourself a favor, make the investment and go with Daniella.

Outstanding service and very professional. I get a phone call from my boss saying that he needed a videographer to follow around a celebrity and it needed to be done in 2 hours. Our company, www.digipromedia.com is located in Florida. This event took play in downtown Los Angeles. I find Chris Cairns from Corpfilms and thankful that he was the right pick. Let's just say that Chris more than exceeded our expectations. Chris arrived early, shot the event, is making edits and the rest is history. We highly recommend Chris and will more than be using his talents in the future. Thank you Chris and thank you Thumbtack.

My favorite thing about working with Luis was his friendly mannerisms and respect for those in attendance at our wedding. He and his helper did an outstanding job with recording us in the perfect manner. We've shared the videos with our friends and family and everyone really enjoyed watching them. Our family members that couldn't make it out to our wedding were in tears after seeing the highlights. We are super glad that we hired newlywed cinema and Luis. Couldn't have asked for a better videography team!

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!

I met with Kristen to plan the photography experience for my Wedding in 2013. I was impressed by her willingness to create the exact experience me & my husband wanted. Kristen is a extremely talented photographer/ videographer and she has the artistic eye for sure. Me & my husband and my family have enjoyed viewing the wedding photos and videos she comprised and I have gone on to use her in my small business venture as well. I'm in Love with her infectious smile and enthusiasm for her work and how it helps people. I recently referred a close friend who needed a short film created for his non-profit entity. I'm happy to recommend Kristin Hastings.

Dan asked me to come and leave a review for Rolling Tide. We got married last summer. Not sure what package we got but we got a highlight video and a full length ceremony and most important moments video. We love them! We watched the highlight film recently for our 1 year anniversary. My wife was in tears as we watched our wonderful day all over again. The day of the wedding they were so courteous, friendly and professional. I don’t even remember noticing them, but as they’ll tell you that’s the point! Great videographers, I give me 5 stars and more if I could.

With never working with a videographer before, I was definitely nervous to shoot a video. I did not know what to expect but had seen Solful's work and was immediately intrigued. When hearing about my lack of experience in shooting videos, Solful Studios were quick to ensure that I felt comfortable in front of a camera with their constant words of encouragement and positivity. Unquestionably, the entire shoot was an experience I will never forget, as it was filled with laughter and fun. I was very pleased with Solful's work ethic and am proud to say that the video exceeded all of my expectations.

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.
