Lemar filmed our wedding this October. He was truly amazing! We felt like we were movie stars the way he was filming us. He is punctual, courteous, and extremely professional. We couldn't believe how lucky we were to have found him. I recommend him to my family and friends and will absolutely use him in the future. I would give him 100 stars if I could.

Gary did a great job filming our theatre production. He was so quick getting back to me with details, questions about the production, and all of the information. He made it very easy for me. The dvds turned out really well and were delivered just a week after filming. I have already booked Gary for our spring show. Thanks!

Jeff was great to work with. He was early, so he was there to capture moments I didn't even know were moments. He was unobtrusive, so it didn't feel weird having him there filming-- most of the time we didn't even know he was. He was nice, and made the whole process simple. I highly recommend him.

Filming and creation of a video as application for a state chapter of a national non-profit organization. Required little guidance - good instincts on material to incorporate beyond filming - willing to make edits and enhance draft. Will work with company again.

Deren put together a video for our Medical Day Treatment program at Children's Hospital Colorado. He was amazing to work with. He seemed to instantly establish a rapport with both staff and patients which we knew would be vital to the success of this project. Deren has such an eye for what will translate well on film. The final product was an incredible piece of work. He captured so many beautiful moments with our patients. Our goal was to have a video of MDT in order to increase overall awareness of the program within the hospital and the community. The video accomplished this and more. The staff at the Children's Hospital Foundation have been able to use the video to share the program with potential donors. We have had a noted increase in donations over the past year which we believe is in large part due to the video Deren filmed. I could not possibly say enough nice things about Deren as a person. We feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity to collaborate with him on this project!

We can't say enough good things about David! He did an amazing job filming our wedding day! He showed up on time for the big day and all of our meetings and was always quick to respond to my e-mails. We were both nervous about being filmed but David immediately put us at ease and honestly I didn't even notice him filming us. He quickly put together a preview after the wedding so we could share it with our friends and family. The DVD was close behind and it was absolutely wonderful! He captured all the special moments and more! The way he combined the footage and the music we picked out was beyond anything we could have imagined! David is extremely talented and we would absolutely recommend him!

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!

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.

Great eye for the different angles and combinations that can make something simple look extravagant. Turn around was great! Wasn’t really expecting too much since we didn’t shoot that much but was shocked by the end product, it was truly amazing to see what he did with so little.

Pauper Prince Productions is absolutely awesome and super easy to work with! I hired them for assistance with my film, and all throughout the production, they had a wonderful "can-do" spirit. As top-notch professionals in the field, they are knowledgeable, uber supportive, and always ready and willing to help. In the end, my film was greatly enhanced because of their assistance and guidance. I can honestly say that I will call on them again for my next film project!

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.
