I hired Nuricproductions for my wedding Nov 12th 2016, and I am so pleased and impressed at the amazing job you did! The DJ was nice and dressed to impress, did an excellent job of getting everyone up and dancing or relaxed when needed and knows how to feel the room. We weren't very specific on our song choices for most of the evening... But it was perfect!! Everyone complimented me for choosing a good DJ. I'm very impressed, they went way above and beyond with lighting and photo booth! I will definitely hire you again, and have been referring people to Nuricproductions. Thank you so much!!

L.B. Blanchard..WOW! We feel so blessed to have found you, and that we could not have found a better photographer for our wedding. From the rehearsal and throughout our wedding day, you were pleasant, friendly, fun, and patient. Not only were we delighted with you, but our guests also spoke highly of you. L.B., we didn't think things could get any better, and then we received our photos. We were and still are completely amazed! The pictures are beautiful, and oh so creative. Thank you a million times over for being a part of our special day. You are simply the best! warmest regards, Michelle, and Scott.

Stephanie is amazing to work with! The first time I worked with Stephanie was several years back taking personal pictures and also of my dog. Working with pets is not easy but she captured many awesome shots of my Cam. So it was a natural choice to use Stephanie as my wedding photographer. We had Stephanie for our engagement pictures, my bridal shower, and then our wedding pictures. Stephanie takes amazing pictures, very professional, works with you and the space you're in to get the right shots. Stephanie is very quick to turn the pictures around for you to review, I've never had to wait to see when the pictures would be ready because she would send it to me before I even ask for it. Thanks Stephanie!

Eddie was the photographers at my wedding in Sarasota, FL. He did an excellent job. He took some great pre-wedding photos with the ladies getting ready and then took some pictures of the guys. During the ceremony, I did not even notice him. He got some very creative shots. After the wedding, we had some family photos taken. He had a great eye for the best location for photos with the background and the lighting, as the sun was starting to set. He got both beautiful posed shots and some really great candid shots. He was able to work well with my nieces that are 1 and 3 years old. I couldn't be happier with Robert and Eddie's work. I will cherish these photos forever. Here are two of my favorites!

Choosing Joe Siciliano as our wedding photographer was an excellent decision. He has a way of capturing moments that is unique, candid, and heartwarming. He appreciates people, as well as the dynamics between them, and he understands how to document nuances in interactions that could easily be overlooked by the untrained eye. Our wedding photos are absolutely gorgeous, and we received fully edited and final images within a few weeks of our wedding. We couldn't be happier and would definitely rehire him in the future for other special occasions.

Earl is the ultimate professional. His work is amazing. We used him for our engagement photos. Since our wedding was a destination wedding we were not able to use Earl for our wedding photos 😂. I was unhappy with the quality of pictures for wedding photographer and felt helpless. I mentioned my Selina to Earl graciously agreed to edit my wedding photos 🙏🏾. His work is beyond quality and he connected with my husband and I and that made us feel at ease and produced a more fun and relaxed shoot.

Ron was great to work with. He was extremely friendly, professional, and provided a great finished product in a very short amount of time. I asked Ron to help me put together a full length video from a bunch of very short video clips of my wedding. The original videographer for the wedding took a bunch of quick shots, and only provided us with a brief highlight video and the raw footage that was unfortunately hundreds of somewhat incomprehensible clips. I reached out to Ron to see if he could put all of the clips together so that my wife and I would have a wedding video that showed everything from beginning to end. Ron did an excellent job putting everything together beautifully, even adding some classical music at the beginning and the end. Ron kept me informed and updated throughout the process, and made sure to ask me important questions so that he could provide me with an end product that I would be happy with.

What a fantastic experience! Peter was super professional and easy to work with to coordinate our family beach session. I really liked that he brought an assistant along and additional lighting that made everything run extra smooth. My children had specific requests and Peter graciously included those wishes. You can tell he is passionate about his job. We had a great time working with Peter and having our portrait made while on vacation. We will definitely use Real Deal Wedding Photography next time we visit Anna Maria!

Colleen was the photographer for our wedding. We had so much fun working with her. She was so friendly and nice and she felt like an immediate friend. She had such a fun and light-hearted attitude and caught some of the greatest moments of our wedding on camera. Afterwards, she was quick to share the pictures with us and she put together a beautiful album. We have some of the pictures hanging in our house and often get compliments on what a "great shot" it is! We were so happy that we chose her!

Michelle and Bill were amazing. They did the photography for our wedding in March on a dinner boat. They were great to work with and the pictures were better than we could have hoped for. Michelle was quick to respond to messages and communicated with us. I would recommend them to friends and family and will definitely use them again.

Working with Nate and his team was a DREAM!!! Communication was easy from the beginning, they were punctual, professional, and the work is exceptional!

DJ PeeDee did an absolutely amazing job for our Son, and his Bride's wedding. I would recommend him highly to anyone wanting to have a DJ that handles everything so smoothly! He made their special day so fun and memorable for all. He met with us months ahead of time, stayed in close contact, did everything requested, and with a wonderful personality. I can't give him enough praise for a job well done!

Brandon was hired to do videography for my wedding. He was professional and knowledgable. I saw his previous work and based off that work I felt confident that hiring him I would get a good product and something that I could look back on BUT what I got was so much more!!! Brandon is very skilled and is more of an artist than anything; his eye for detail and editing skills made my video look as though it was a professional music video in fact that's exactly what it was a professional video. He is not an amateur and if you hire him you will be given a keepsake and an heirloom that you will pass down to your great great great great grandkids! I can not thank him enough. The whole wedding experience flies by so, the best decision you will make for you wedding is hiring Brandon so you can relive the experience over and over again.

I liked Jill's initial ideas, and she kept making tweaks until the logo design for my consulting company was perfect. I felt like she fully understood my needs and delivered exactly what I was hoping to get. While I'm in Ohio and she's in Arkansas, I felt like we almost knew one another, as her communications were friendly, professional, and prompt. I liked Jill's work so much that I also hired her to design a logo for our upcoming wedding. Two of the designs were so good that we decided to purchase them both! Hire Jill without reservation. I am sure I will be asking her for help on a project again soon, and will refer her to others without hesitation.

That Guy Can Help not only scoped out our wedding venue a week prior, but also arrived an hour early to set up so he could be prepared for the day. He was extremely professional and captured moments of the day I would've never knew existed if it wasn't for him. The quality of work that he produces is undeniable. I would definitely use him again and recommend him to other people. Thank you That Guy Can Help!

HIGHLY RECOMMEND. I’m beyond thankful to have found Alex to take photos for our wedding. He was always fast with responding, the value for the work he puts in is beyond anything else you will find, and he was all around great to work with during the photo session. He arrived over 30 minutes early ( before I got there ), and was very patient the whole time while we waited for guests to arrived. He made us feel comfortable and it was a huge relief to have him take control while taking photos. I didn’t need to worry about whether or not certain things would be captured, I didn’t need to think about where to stand, or how. I highly recommend Alex to anyone who needs pictures taken. I will definitely be hiring him again in the future !

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.  

How much does it cost for a photographer for a wedding?

Finding the right wedding photographer can make a big difference for your ceremony. Nationally, the average wedding photographer’s price ranges from $800 to $1,000, but costs can be much higher in areas like Chicago, New York or Los Angeles where some couples spend $2,000 to $5,000 or more for the photographer they want. Factors that can affect your wedding photographer prices include the photographer’s reputation and experience. Heavy hitters can command top rates, especially during wedding-season weekends. Day of the week also affects your cost. You may get a $200 discount on wedding photographer prices if you get married on a Friday in November rather than a Saturday in June. Time onsite is also an important cost factor. Hiring a photographer to snap photos from the moment you wake up until after last call at the reception is going to cost more than five hours of pictures during the day. Multiple photographers, special lighting, and videography will also increase your costs. Ultimately you want to find someone who has a style you love and can provide the number of edited shots you want for a price you can handle. Learn more about hiring a wedding photographer.
