Rob did an excellent job on short notice as videographer for a corporate event. He was very thorough in pre-planning, execution at the event, and delivered footage quickly, which we greatly appreciated as it helps keep our audience that could not attend this in-person event engaged.

Marc Cacho and MC Visuals were very professional. Through out my wedding planning process he worked with me and made adjustments to my contract as necessary. The day of my wedding his crew was very flexible and made sure to capture my special moments with elegance and class. I had a wonderful stress free experience. It was a blessing to be able to find a team that included photographers and a videographer at such a reasonable price.

I found Thumbtack through Google & have never hired a videographer through a Google search before. I felt that it was risky and a bit sketchy—just my personal thought. But after reading the reviews, and seeing the work Bob has done on his page, I felt slightly more comfortable in trusting this website. 8 reasons why you may want to hire this professional for your event: 1. Bob arrived an hour earlier than the event (25th anniversary celebration). And it took an extra hour to just reach here! I was humbly appreciative towards that. 2. VERY easy, very comfortable to talk to and work with. 3. Any requests or personal preferences I had was effortlessly done by Bob. 4. Clear communication throughout the night. 5. I received DVD videos that had exactly what was requested, in addition to timely and smooth transitions that wrapped the memory of the event up beautifully. 6. He was completely professional and friendly before, during, and after the event. 7. Very patient, genuine, and respectful. 8. Received an amazing price deal for what was received! I’m so confident in Bob after our encounter. He is an absolute dream to work with. I will 100% be requesting him for any future events I have. And I HIGHLY, highly recommend Bob to anyone who is looking to not worry about recording their event—and leaving that stress to this professional to capture your special moments. (The pictures attached are our own, so you can catch a glimpse of our event but you can find Bob's work on videography on this page & his website).

Larry videoed our wedding on Saturday, April 29th. From the start, Larry has been very professional and patient in explaining the whole process to us. We received the video three days after the wedding, which is unheard of. Once we viewed it we absolutely loved it! He captured all the important parts, and gave great attention to detail. We will highly recommend him and have already recommended him to friends and co-workers. Keep up the great work Larry! I'm so glad we picked you as our videographer. :-) Sakinah & John McLaughlin

The videographer was fantastic! I haven't seen the final product yet but on the day of he politely introduced himself and was very discreet. It wasn't obvious to me that someone was filming which is what I was hoping for. Scott was very responsive and easy to communicate with during the booking process.

David was the videographer for my wedding on September 20, 2015 and he was absolutely amazing. His professionalism and work were the best I have seen for videographers. He captured every moment perfectly and was always around when those random moments happened. My wife was extremely happy and excited with David's work. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a videographer for any type of event. Thank you again David Whitney.

      When my husband and I decided to book a videographer for our NJ wedding this past December, I quickly thought of Margaret's talent! We discussed our vision for the final product and trusted her creative intuition to take it from there. On the day of the wedding, Margaret was on time, professional and brought with her such a positive energy. Margaret's attentive and calm approach had all of us relaxed while being filmed on an otherwise fast-paced day! After an exceptional turnaround time, Margaret worked with us to ensure that the final product went above and beyond our expectations. Thanks to her work, we will forever cherish the memories and details of our wedding day! I highly recommend her services to anyone who wants the experience of having their most special moments captured in a a beautiful work of art.

      Kersten is a wonderful photographer and videographer. The work he did at my daughter's Bat Mitzvah was beautiful! He spent a lot of time reviewing everything with us before the event and all of the planning showed in the final product. He made everyone feel very comfortable on the day of the event, and really captured what it very special and unique. Thanks Kersten for a great job!

      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.

      Thian is a great dance instructor. In a very short time he’s taught my daughter, son and husband the basic steps. He is also putting together an amazing dance for them. The occasion is my daughter’s sweet sixteen. I can’t say enough great things about him. In fact we like him do much that we decided to hire him as our photographer/videographer for the special day. I highly recommend him!!!

        About

        As a videographer I have experience doing various projects, that of which include weddings, conventions, interviews, music videos and short commercials.

        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.
