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.

Matt was perfect for our Wedding! He has a easy going personality and he was not intrusive or in the way like other photographers or videographers. The videos that he put together captured the event and were clear, beautiful, touching meaningful, and flowed!!! I highly recommend him for any occasion!

DNG Video did a fabulous job, were very easy to work with, and all at a great price. We had raw footage from our wedding, but our videographer wasn’t able to put it together. DNG reviewed hours of footage and put together an amazing wedding video for us! They were extremely professional and responsive. Highly recommend!

Perfect Bob Troy was excellent. I hired him for my mom's 90th Birthday Party December 26th. He was on time very professional. I was about one hour late and waited patiently. He works with you and for you. His videos are the best quality. I would recommend Bob Troy to anyone as the best videographer.

We planned our wedding in roughly two months with Covid and all. We were on a tight budget and needed a videographer to help us capture our intimate special day. Bob was just the guy. He worked with us within our budget; he delivered on time, and was very professional. With his many years of experience, he knows his stuff! I definitely recommend his services!

I threw a surprise birthday roast for my girlfriend. After communicating with several videographers, I decided to use Bob. First, I would like to say he exceeded my expectations. This was my first time arranging an event like this, and I needed everything to go as planned. Bob was very easy to communicate with by answering any questions in a timely manner. He also worked with my budget. I wasn't looking for someone super cheap because that brings up red flags, but I was looking for quality at a reasonable price. He arrived to my event before I showed up, and was already set up and ready to video when I arrived. I was running photos on a projector and wanted better quality, and he eagerly advised me on how to achieve this. Again, he exceeded my expectations with his willingness to accommodate. My boyfriend paid him early before event was over, and advised Bob he could leave. He didn't realize I wanted my girlfriend to be video'd opening her gifts. I saw Bob packing up, and rushed over to him regarding continuing to video event. He apologized and immediately started to re setup equipment. Later my boyfriend told me it was his mistake. Lastly, I received my 3 dvd's in 2-3 days as promised. The quality, and Bob capturing great moments at the event was superb! I highly recommend him, and will employ him for future events.

It was truly a pleasure working with Matt. We hired him to record our volleyball tournament last month for a special project. From our initial conversation, we noticed right away how personable he was. We did not meet with Matt prior to the event but we knew we were going to be comfortable working with him. He was very responsive to all our inquiries prior to the event through phone calls and emails. He was also flexible with his time. We originally requested his services for 5 hours but turned out we needed him for 10 hours and he gladly accepted several days prior to the event. While we asked for recordings of the game play, we also asked for some creative shots and the videos turned out better than we could ask for. His eye for interesting angles made the videos special. During the tournament, he was always available and prepared to record our games. He was easy to work with and had a great attitude. In addition to HD videos, we asked for some 4K footage and he was able to deliver with a handheld stabilizer camera at no extra cost. Out of more than twenty videographers we've asked for price quotes, Be Noticed Productions was the most cost effective with regard to time, equipment and quality. Please note we only asked for raw footage so we have no experience with their editing process. I recommend Be Noticed Productions for any recording needs you may have! If we get another chance, we will hire Matt once again.
