I'm a fan of Professional wrestling, and I had asked L. Llewellyn to make a illustration of a legend in Professional Wrestling named Bobby "The Brain" Heenan, after Heenan died. Now< I asked that L. Llewellyn use some "creative license" in making this portrait of Heenan. I'm also a fan of sci-fi films, and L. Llewellyn made this illustration, with Heenan as one part of "Master/Blaster" from the Mel Gibson movie, "Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome." I really enjoyed the sort of "double celebrity portrait" that L Llewellyn had made, with Tina Turner depicted in the background of this image as "Auntie" from that movie. L. Llewellyn is talented and just crazy enough to give you some originality that goes a long way. He's tops with me.

Vibrant Visuals provided professional, high quality, and friendly photography and video for our family gathering. The kids especially loved chasing and being chased by a drone! It was a fun event and the crew were like part of our family after a couple of hours. Pass on the other guys...these are the best!

DirectLine Media did an outstanding job filming the Annual Meeting for Child & Family Agency. David Chmielewski captured the essential elements of the program and conducted several short interviews after. His camera work is excellent. C&FA plans to use the video footage for a short film edited in Final Cut Pro. David provided a variety of well composed shots to work with. He is very professional and I plan to engage his services again on other projects.

I've worked with Ted and his team on a number of videos for some corporate shorts we've made for our internal communications. Ted is extremely professional, knowledgeable and above all extremely personable which is a massive plus for any film-maker dealing with interviewees in particular. Ted also has great experience with scripts and helping to put together storylines which is a fantastic bonus and a real life-saver when it comes to creating something at short notice. With any luck I'll be continuing to use Ted in the future and he comes highly recommended by me and my viewers!

If I could rate Rhema Films & Photography 10 stars I would! To put it simply, they were amazing! Phillip took the time to understand our vision, ask questions, and executed brilliantly. His entire crew was such a pleasure to work with and I wouldn't have done it any other way. He is kind, patient, and wildly talented at what he does. If you are considering the video package I highly recommend it. Phillip created a customized video of our wedding day that we watch every year on our anniversary (and cry, lol). He captured the raw emotion of that day and the video is stunning! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QtmqVTw8YaE

We had terrific experience producing marketing material for our small business with the Votary Media company. Benjamin reached out to our company himself in May 2017 and sent us a sample of their past work. I liked the quality of their product right away and decided that we should use them at some point to to tell our story. We scheduled a visit to discuss the entire process. From start to finish Benjamin was very responsive, spending a lot of time making sure that he leaned enough about our company and that he understood how not only to deliver a quality product but to make it personal and inspiring for the viewers. We had 3 shooting days scheduled, some with our crew and one to interview me and my partner Dmitry at the office. We never felt rushed, but the opposite; I was impressed by how much time they spend on details - setting up the room, playing with the light, placing the microphone. They make you feel like a celebrity in Hollywood! The crew used very professional equipment, shot videos from variety of angles and always kept a friendly atmosphere. When it came time to review the drafts, Benjamin (the film producer) and Jono (the editor) were very flexible and patient in making some little adjustments to make sure we were completely satisfied. I had no doubt that we would get a high quality product and we were very pleased both with the end result and the work process. Thank you guys! If you own a small business or have an inspirational story to tell, these are the guys to hire. Check out our website www.raimondsmovers.com and see our videos for yourself!

    Seth is a consummate professional when filming! I have had the pleasure of working with him on several projects and cannot express enough what a wonderful experience it has been each and every time we work together. Seth & his team are extremely reliable. They arrive on site well prepared and get right to task. The team manages to capture so many details, all while remaining unobtrusive. Seth is terrific at offering direction when needed, while still managing to keep the flow of the production moving at a good pace. Fellow professionals on my projects have applauded this group for being a joy to work with. Seth is certainly cognizant of the project as a whole, working in the best interest of the client and of the team. I highly recommend Newton's Law Productions for your next production!

    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.
