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.

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.  

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.

This guy is the BEST videographer/photographer EVER! We were shooting a large number of ads and wanted as many photos as we possibly could - we got a house to shoot in, got models, got props, all we wanted is to have the most content possible so we could use it all for ads... By the end of it, we had hundreds of gigabytes worth of photos and videos (hundreds of videos and over 3,000 pictures) - all from just a few hours! Just give this man a general idea of what you want and he will give you the best content ever! He's got amazing 4k and 8k cameras, lights that make ads look like they're part of a movie, and a great eye for detail! We're a small business that has been shooting content with professional athletes for years now and we've never used the same videographer twice because they're always so disappointing! From now on, this guy is our go-to content shooter! We're never using any other videographer/photographer again, he's our guy! Great guy, super fun to talk to, extremely talented, and his experience speaks for itself! Worth every penny, and then some

Paul was an excellent videographer for our team. My company asked Paul to film interviews for a full day. He showed up bright and early, ready to go! Not only did he capture valuable interview footage for our team but he also gave us insight regarding where would be the best space for filming that day and it turned out great. On top of that he even took the time to personally transfer and organize our video footage throughout the day - going the extra mile. This was super helpful given that our team members were running around all day. We couldn't have asked for a better videographer. His professionalism, flexibility, and positive attitude made for a great experience. I would highly recommend Paul for videography and photography. Thanks, Paul!

Brian blew our socks off! We hired him for our wedding in Sept 2020 and he was punctual, easy going and completely nailed our videographer needs. We are so happy to have hired him not know if we would actually need a wedding video, but he was so affordable and I couldn't be more elated with the results! I will recommend him to everyone I know!

Brian helped make my Dad's military memorial a beautiful memory to share with those who could not attend due to COVID. There were very tight time and site specifics to work with, and Brian was a true professional through it all, especially when I had to choose another contact person due to another family crisis. He did excellent work on the final video and put me completely at ease with the high level of value-to-cost he provided. I would highly recommend hiring him if you're looking for an affordable and perceptive videographer.

I decided around 8pm the night before my husband's Celebration of Life to hire a videographer. Gary of Mobile Pro Video almost immediately communicated with me when I received referrals through Thumbtack. He called me around 8:30 that evening and we discussed high-level details of the Celebration and what I would like him to do. He was very professional and arrived around 45 minutes before the Celebration to setup and get details from the funeral director. The quality of the filming and the end result are top notch. I cannot express in words what it means to me to have such a personal keepsake. Gary exceeded my expectations.

Roger is absolutely incredible. Very few times in my life have I had the opportunity to work with someone that is so dedicated to the final product and who went above and beyond to ensure that he delivered. He is easy to work with, phenomenally talented, and will do everything he can to exceed expectations. He is also professional, courteous, shows up early and stays late. I would highly, highly recommend Roger to anyone needing photographer or videographer services. The video he shot and edited for me is now used in widespread marketing campaigns and we are already getting rave reviews on his work. I will use again many times in the future. He is AMAZING.
