I attended a wedding celebration for a friend at The Rhinecliff Hotel. This is where we met Nick from The Best of Both Worlds. The first thing we noticed was the big Photo Booth that our friends and other guests were waiting online for. We took part in the photo booth and we were very pleased with the props, the instant print out of clear pictures and we were amazed on how user friendly Nick's photo booth was. While getting our picture prints I met videographer who was placing a video camera inside the photo booth to record. I was curious to know what this was. The Videographer explained to me that this was an additional service for the groom and bride. Not only would we get our pictures taken, but he was preparing a slow motion video photo booth montage. This footage would be added along with a funny song, uploaded online, and a link would be given to the Groom and Bride to share with all the guests as an extra party favor. I was thrilled with the idea, and I was interested in knowing more about his services. He quickly introduced me to his wife who was the photographer. I turns out that this husband and wife team work with Nick and provide video and photography services. Along with this and the lights, video projectors, Nick does truly have the best of both worlds. We were so please with the entire presentation of my friends Wedding, that my fiancee and I have decided to book Nick and his team for our own wedding and we are also recommending him to 2 friends of ours who will be having birthday celebrations in early 2017. Best of Both Worlds has it all, DJs, Performers, lights, video screens, photo booth, video and photography services all under one umbrella. This certainly makes our life easier when it comes down to booking.

I was blown away with the fantastic quote Sunshine Entertainment gave me for my wedding reception, much more value for the price. the reception was fantastic, played all requests, played dance videos, and even went on the dance floor and lead everybody in line dances. Definitely will hire again - for an anniversary or something.

Rob was great! It was a pleasure working with him. I was not onsite at the photo shoot but I had the utmost confidence in him and didn't worry about him taking lead. His rates were reasonable and the photos looked great! Looking forward to working with him again.

Marc was amazing! He did our engagement photos that he delivered in a very timely fashion. His work is incredible, and he has a great eye for posing and background. In our engagement photo shoot he had a lot more control and direction for us; however during our wedding he didn't have his assistant and wasn't able to exert the same amount with our loud Puerto Rican families. All in all I would highly recommend Mark and use him again for future events.

Wow! Eddie and his assistant are AWESOME! He was super responsive throughout the whole planning process. On the day of our wedding he was there super early to set up, played all my requests and chose great music to play after those were finished. A few weeks prior to our day, I asked Eddie if he would be able to bring a projector so I could play a video and I was thrilled that he could! It went so well!! Big shout out to his assistant who was a ray of sunshine at the photobooth the whole night. So happy we had the pleasure of working with Strategy Event Productions! Thank you!!!!

I enthusiastically recommend Scott Goldberg's North Fork Wedding Films & Photography without hesitation. From beginning to end Scott was professional, responsive and accommodating for our extended family photo shoot on the beach. Scott even got soaked by saltwater at one point to get some great shots. Throughout it all Scott remains easygoing and good-natured, and continues taking more great pictures. Scott works efficiently, and is not a "clock watcher." He just focused on getting and setting up the shots we wanted and suggesting ideas of his own. In addition to his terrific demeanor, we are all very happy with the quality of Scott's photographs. Scott exemplifies his artistry and technical know-how with great use of the natural light and the environment. For a great price we received priceless memories from the moments captured through Scott's lens. For all these reasons Scott deserves the highest 5-star rating because we all think he is outstanding.

We had such a wonderful experience with both TeQoa and Andre! Not only is their work stunning, but they have a fantastic dynamic that put us at ease right away. We were immediately comfortable with them, and loved having them direct the shoot so that we could simply have fun together. They focused both on the ideas that we brought to the table, as well as provided tons of other photo and video opportunities that we hadn't thought of, which ended up being some of our favorite shots! Their attention to detail and eye to the artistic composition of each and every shot is unmatched. We felt incredibly taken care of and we had so much fun during our engagement shoot that we absolutely can't wait to work with them again at our wedding! Don't miss out on the opportunity to work with such amazing artists!

Rob is super-prompt, very courteous, experienced and will make you or your business look great. I have used him for years for numerous digital video projects and call on him regularly. He offers insightful suggestions to enhance the quality and look of your presentations/messages and he asks the right questions to ensure you get what you want. His pricing is excellent, and so is his turnaround time.

I got a recommendation to hire L. Llewellyn, from a friend who'd hired him for some video editing work. I was skeptical, as I liked his video work he'd done for a friend, but I wasn't sure about his artwork abilities. Anyway, I'd hired him to make a pen and ink drawing, from a photo of my sister and I was very pleased with what he'd done. I think L. Llewellyn does great work (this is the way the art appears on L. Llewelllyn's website at www.alphamediaworks.com).

Ron did a really great job not only adapting to my needs but also my clients needs. He went out of his way to re-shoot the front elevation of the home because my client wanted a revised photo. He was ready to do it that same day that I requested for the re-shoot! Now, my client is ecstatic about how we went above and beyond... All thanks to Ron.

Franciska is an excellent communicator and professional videographer. She makes sure every little details before, during and after the filming. Those details make the filming process very smoothly. She also follows the direction and standards for our project and the final videos look very great. After the filming, she immediately uploaded the videos and gave quick update of the filming. She is also very flexible for the time and payment. I highly recommend her if you want to have a pleasant experience for your video project!

Working with such a professional team is such a breeze. I love working with Beverly Boy, they have completely changed the face of our company by merely producing an amazing web video that is on our home web page. Flipping between testimonials, our vision, and company history, they compelled an amazing short video that our customers love.

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.
