Arrival of the photobooth was on time and also pretty easy to use. No bulky equipment so it wasn't an eyesore in the area we had it in. People seemed to enjoy it and there were so many props for my wedding guests to use which was great. The price was pretty affordable as well which is what my fiancé (now husband) and I wanted since we were on a tight wedding budget.

Will Hartman was amazing! Will and his wife, Michelle, designed my wedding photo booth template and it was beautiful. Will arrived early, set up everything and was wonderful during his entire time at my wedding. I couldn't have hired a better professional. The photo booth I had was the LED inflatable backdrop and it turned out great in pictures. The props were also fantastic. I feel like they really go above and beyond to do the best job and I am so grateful they did my wedding. Thanks so much for the wonderful job and for the scrapbook. It really was a lot of fun for everyone there and the moments you captured were priceless. I highly recommend hiring Desert Rose Photography for your wedding or other special event. They were perfect at my wedding!

We hired Joe as our photographer for our wedding. Joe has been awesome to work with. Despite all of our last minute changes- I mean total last minute changes! Joe was understanding and professional the entire time. We are so grateful to have found someone as fun and uplifting and supportive as Joe as our photographer. He was also prompt in responding and attended to all our needs and wishes. Couldn't have asked for a better professional and exceptional photographer for our special day! I would recommend Joe and his staff to anyone who wants to get the job done and done in a complete, professional, and timely manner. Thank you Joe for making our wedding day a day to remember for years to come!

Danielle was our wedding photographer for our April 10th wedding. She was amazing! She was very easy to work with and very personalable. Very easy to get along with personality. I felt very comfortable around her and she was really good at directing us for different positions for pictures. You could tell she loves what she does. Her passion really comes out in her work. She also loved my picture ideas that I suggested as well. She really captured the moment for us. Can't wait to see all the pictures! I would be excited to use her again for a future!!

Amazing work. My husband is rather picky about photograpy and we searched long and hard for the perfect photographer for our wedding. We both instantly agreed to Sheryl Bale after viewing her website. Sheryl offers an affordable price and a great eye for beauty. Her engagement photo session and wedding pictures are one of a kind. She is very easy to work with and produces valuable photos. I would definitely recommend her for your needs. I know I will be using her again in the future. Thanks Sheryl!

Jami did the videography for our wedding at Castle Green in 2008. She was WONDERFUL! In fact, I had decided not to do videography at the wedding after reviewing a number of terrible, cheesy video samples, but then I found Jami. Her work is classy, tasteful, and timeless. She captured every special moment of the day. My whole family loves Jami's work -- my dad is actually the most obsessed with it and watched the video a bunch of times after the wedding. We watch the video instead of going through the photographs because it brings us back to the day instantly. Although, I will also add that Jami did give us a number of still images from her video work that are also beautiful and artistic. One other thing worth mentioning is that she was very professional onsite while shooting and didn't get in everyone's faces to get her shots. She was there, but she was discreet and still managed to capture beautiful images. My sister is getting married this spring and is going to have Jami video her wedding. I cannot recommend Jami more highly. Trust me, Jami's video will be your favorite keepsake!

I cannot say enough good things about Jessica and 3 Little Birds Event Planning! She is an absolute master at what she does!! She offers complete, 1 month, and day-of wedding planning, as well as all sorts of event planning, i.e. baby showers, parties, etc. I went with "Day-Of" and Jessica went above and beyond, helping with various steps in my planning process. She was always easy to reach and responded promptly with any and all questions that I had. She constructed the wedding timeline and offered dozens of suggestions to make our day truly special and perfect. 3 Little Birds also offers party rentals at very competitive prices, including a client discount! Needless to say, I ended up renting what I needed from them. Jessica and Dustin did such a fantastic job! Our venue decor was perfectly set-up, with every detail carefully though out. They made our day run smoothly and practically stress-free. Jessica was there every step of the way and took care of any issues as they arose. She made sure all formalities were done as we wanted them, directed our wedding photographer, attended to us personally, made sure our vendors were paid and tipped, and even stayed around afterwards to help break down the rentals. All in all, our wedding was pure magic and it was all thanks to Jessica, Dustin, and 3 Little Birds Event Planning. I will be recommending them to all of my friends and family for all future events.

Rand filmed our wedding on August 9th and did a great job! He and his co-videographer, Jason, arrived on time and got to work right away. They were able to film items such as my dress and wedding items in the other room and didn't need direction, which is very useful on a busy morning such as a wedding! When we were ready for them to film more specific details though, they took direction and followed accordingly which was perfect! They brought just the right amount of equipment and knew how to use it. They wedding video was beautiful and was finished very quickly so we were able to share it with our family and friends right away. I highly recommend Rand to any of my friends or for my future events! Thanks- Whitney & Vincent

We decided to hire Steven Grossman to film our wedding at The Casino in San Clemente, CA on July 8, 2016 and we were so happy we did! We just wanted the raw footage without editing and it was very affordable. We had the hard drive within days of our wedding. Steve did an awesome job with capturing every little detail including all of our ceremony, the grand entrances, the speeches, cake cutting, bouquet and garter toss, tons of dancing, and more. The guests hardly knew he was there, but when they did, he was so kind and helpful. Even leading up to the wedding, Steve was very easy to communicate with, even though we never met before the wedding day! I would absolutely recommend Steve for anyone looking to get an unforgettable video of your big day! Thank you again!

I came across LilyLove 5 years ago when I was on the market for a wedding photographer. She was a new, emerging artist however her work has never faltered. Although she didn't shoot my wedding ( emergency cancellation on my part) she did deliver on the first of many family and lifestyle sessions. She has helped us document the growth and expansion of my family. Each time tastefully, perfectly edited and executed. She's not just a point and shoot type person. She objective, will stop to fix your hair or get tasteful in the moment shots. Each second she captures is one you can definitely relive and get lost in. Each handmade set up and holiday session is definitely one of a kind and adds the element of living a fairy tale. Her talent is an art and so much larger than just wedding coverage, it's life as you would love to remember it through loving and fun eyes. It's an honor and privilege to be her client.

Wayne is a very talented photographer and an amazing person. It was such an honor to have him to be part of our big day! All our families and friends were amazed by the wedding pictures, much more beautiful than we ever expected. We received all the GREAT quality wedding pictures just in 1-2 days right after our wedding. He even created a wonderful video clip that captured and condensed everything from our wedding day in a 1:30 minute video, and everyone just adores the video clip. He captured so many little details and unexpected moments. He was so calm, patient, and very friendly to everyone at the wedding. Wayne was with us before, during, and after the ceremony and stayed until after our first dance. He captured all the family and individual portraits. His personality, photography, and professional skills is much appreciated! We would highly recommend to have him as your photographer for your important occasions! He is a brilliant photographer and nicest man!

Scott and his crew did an amazing job for our wedding which was both audio and lighting heavy. Not only was he always quick to respond to my emails, but always willing to offer advice in helping me develop the look I was going for. Due to the nature of the venue, the set and strike needed to be done very quickly and they nailed it. Highly recommend!!

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.  

How much does it cost for a photographer for a wedding?

Finding the right wedding photographer can make a big difference for your ceremony. Nationally, the average wedding photographer’s price ranges from $800 to $1,000, but costs can be much higher in areas like Chicago, New York or Los Angeles where some couples spend $2,000 to $5,000 or more for the photographer they want. Factors that can affect your wedding photographer prices include the photographer’s reputation and experience. Heavy hitters can command top rates, especially during wedding-season weekends. Day of the week also affects your cost. You may get a $200 discount on wedding photographer prices if you get married on a Friday in November rather than a Saturday in June. Time onsite is also an important cost factor. Hiring a photographer to snap photos from the moment you wake up until after last call at the reception is going to cost more than five hours of pictures during the day. Multiple photographers, special lighting, and videography will also increase your costs. Ultimately you want to find someone who has a style you love and can provide the number of edited shots you want for a price you can handle. Learn more about hiring a wedding photographer.
