Can't say enough good things in this review of Lemar Griffin Films & Photography. Lemar was instrumental in me surprising my now-fiance with a proposal in Denver. Not being from Denver, Lemar provided a lot ideas and inspiration on where to "pop the question". Working with Lemar was super easy; he's so approachable and he listens so that you get the memorable moment you want captured in photos and film. The shots he was able to get where topnotch and he has a very quick turnaround time for getting the pictures back to you. I'm so happy that I came across Lemar on Thumbtack and that I partnered with him to capture my proposal!!

I hired Jeff as a second shooter for a wedding and he was wonderful! I even hired him a second time to go film something on his own, because I was confident in his work. Very professional, great work!

The film crew was prompt, courteous and helped us film a very sensitive and emotional segment. A rough (but very close to final) cut of the production was available within three days.

Guillermo filmed my wedding and reception in May 2014. He did a wonderful job, and I am so happy with both the filming quality and his editing of the film. He also made a 5 minute "highlight" video that is great! He worked within the restrictions of my church concerning where he could/couldn't film, lighting concerns etc to create a wonderful video that was respectful of the sanctuary. He even worked with me on the day of the wedding to extend his filming by an extra hour so that he could catch some important reception events. Overall, I am so happy with the job he did and he was very professional to work with!

Bill and Jane have established a very prominent and unique studio, they found a niche in the market and filled it with fantastic shot compositions and emphasis on the emotion of the moment. Sky High worked with me on a commercial shoot and they filmed our wedding - I highly recommend them for any project requiring detailed or unique perspective. Sky High has developed an exceptional talent for editing and producing finished content with strong ties to the emotions associated with the work. Two thumbs way up for Sky High, for Bill and for Jane - you both are amazing!

Brian has done an amazing job for our wedding videos. He knows his stuff and flexible. He is willing to go the extra miles for his customers on their important days/oocasions. The video he filmed and edited is of great quality. His price is reasonable and great value for money for the kind of quality he provides! I would highly recommend Brian for your events!

I can’t say enough good things about Sheepdog!! Gwyneth and Jeremiah are INCREDIBLE to work with—both in the quality of the work they produce, and the atmosphere they create when you are working with them. They are extremely professional and friendly, and will make you feel right at home when you are with them. Their photography and film work is top notch. I HIGHLY recommend!!! Below I posted pictures Gwyneth took as examples of her work—it speaks for itself!

Erik and I have worked together on multiple feature and short films, and Erik's work has always been fantastic. Erik has done just about everything on our film shoots from being cinematographer/director of photography, recorded audio, handled lighting, edited films, provided musical scores - you name it, and Erik has done it (and done it exceedingly well) on our films.

Elevation put together a documentary video of me and my sculpture business. It was not only a fun experience but the results were great. I will be able to use the film as a marketing tool as well as an archive of a period of time in my professional and personal life.

Working with Ross and Annette at Emerald Fox Productions was a fantastic experience from start to finish. From our initial bid/meeting to the delivery of our final photos and video shoot, they were professional, friendly and went above and beyond our expectations. Our band hired them to film our concert at the Dickens Opera House and take photos of the performance as well. They edited shots from multi camera videos for four songs and a compilation highlight video of our performance. The color, camera angles and editing were perfect and in addition the audio quality was superior. I recommend any band, or artist who wants to have a high quality and professional video shoot should consider Emerald Fox productions first!

What a find! The SCI Recovery Project's fundraising event would not have been successful with out Mitchell! Mitchell was brought on to create two videos that were featured at our 2013 fundraising event. Mitchell was such a breeze to work with. His professionalism, skills, and dedication to our testimonial video, and staff confessional video made our fundraising event a huge success! I was overwhelmingly impressed by his ability to immerse himself in the project, and spend extra time needed to make our film one that our donor base is sure to remember. Our client was thrilled by the quality representation of her and her life, and I loved how approachable he was with suggestions and ideas. Thank you Mitchell!!! We hope we'll be working with you for years to come!!!

Wade and I collaborated on his award winning documentary, Marvin Booker Was Murdered, about a wrongful death in Denver. Wade's passion and drive to see a feature length film though the filmmaking process (from conception, through production, through editing, and release through festivals and community screenings) cannot be understated. The film has sparked meaningful conversation about violence from law enforcement, and it has even initiated positive steps toward reform from the City of Denver administration. Without Wade's hard work, focus, and leadership, the story of Marvin Booker would not have been told. On commercial projects that Wade has taken on, he is very personable and collaborative. He listens and communicates effectively to pull off the client's vision while appropriately adding his own input. In his careful editing, Wade avoids the cookie cutter cliches of video promos and makes the work stand out as an honest documentary film, instead of a forced, corporate ad. Wade is a great choice for video production and editing projects in Colorado.

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. 

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
