B_entertained DJ's & More was such a fantastic choice! From the beginning of my search for a DJ I interviewed many DJ's and connected with Mike, the owner. I hired them for the DJ, photo booth and video montage, all offered through this company. When I arrived at my venue, I met the DJ, MC, dancer, and photo booth operator. ABSOLUTELY a high energy group that kept it up all night! I had last minute changes and Steve, our DJ, had no problem changing songs. The MC, Danny, was keeping the party moving all night, dancing and even the guest of honor happily danced. Their dancer, John, was Fantastic! Not only was John a great dancer, he was perfect for our group of people. He had the guests copying moves and out on the dance floor all night. The open air photo booth was a hit, everyone, even my parents went up and took pictures. The photo montage was up on the screen all night and everyone loved seeing themselves as it played during the night. My favorite was the the energy in the room and keeping everyone moving. It was fantastic! The music always makes a party and with B_entertained DJ's & More, I wasn't disappointed. My guests gushed over the Steve, Danny & John. They all had so much fun and that's what every host wants for their event.

Choosing Your Way Entertainment for my wedding was one of the best choices I made. I had never had to search for a DJ before but something about the professionalism I was shown before the date let me know I was in well qualified hands. And boy was I right! He was so great with helping make sure things worked smoothly and basically kept my special day on track better than I could have asked for. I will forever recommend Your Way Entertainment to anybody I know looking for a DJ because just like the name says I know my he kept my best interests at heart!

MC Visuals provided us with outstanding service and our wedding video is stunning. Their attention to the details of our wedding and the artistry used to create our wedding video are unmatched. We were not sure we would be able to afford a videographer for our wedding but Marc and his team made it possible for us and delivered one of the best wedding gifts of all: an eternal memory of our wedding day that we can share with friends and families for the rest of our lives!

I truly lucked out when I found Glenn from Creator Arts! I needed help making a unique and creative engagement video, and I didn’t know where to start or how to begin. I met with Glenn and we were both immediately on the same page. He helped put together a bunch of random pictures into one incredible video with songs, videos, and also a recording. The video came out better then I could’ve expected. Glenn was responsive, professional, and most importantly excellent at his job. I highly recommend Hiring Glenn fron crator Arts for any project.

We hired Sal and his colleague to record our wedding, July 22, 2017. They did a wonderful job! They captured so many beautiful candid moments of our day which they included in our final video. We were so happy to see how amazing our special day came together. Sal and his colleague were professional, on time and fun to work with. He was able to send us our final video so quickly. I was surprised at how well done our video was in such a short time.  Thank you!

Ted came out to my house to shoot 5 video’s for a training series I was doing for my company, BizGoneSocial.com. He spent 4 hours filming the training. He was timely and very knowledgable and even helped me with my delivery. He also was enthusiastic and encouraging. What I really liked is he went beyond the call of duty and his edits & ideas were awesome. And the final outcome of the project was awesome. Also his camera guy was awesome too. I will be hiring Ted for any video job I have in the future.

Antonio created short video montages that acted as promotion tools for my retail shop. He filmed a couple live events we had, and turned them into short snippets I shared on social media for fans and publicity. He did it all from filming, editing, color correcting, and adding music—one stop shopping you could say! All was done very well, too. Antonio is friendly, enthusiastic, creative, open to feedback, and I already plan to work with him again.

Excellent service. Andre is very professional and does a great job! A great thing about him is that is punctual, someone you can rely on it. He did the video and pictures of my daughter's Quinceanera and we are very happy with the results. He is very easy to work with. I would contract him again in the future for any other events. I highly recomend his company.

    I saw a photo on Tom's site that I thought would make a wonderful Christmas present. I was able to very easily order and pay for my photo. I ordered an 11" x 14" size. It came very quickly and EXTREMELY well packaged to avoid and creases or bends. I will definitely be ordering again.

    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.
