Joe was the absolute best! We had some weather conditions working against us but he always remained calm and even listen to me cry over the phone. Even with just him photographing the wedding, he captured every moment flawlessly. He answered every request I had when it came to example photos that I had shown him prior to the big day. He was on time, professional, and blended into the crowd to get some fabulous candid shots. He was recommended to me by a friend and I am so happy i went with him. It was also amazing that he wasn’t ridiculously expensive like all the other wedding photographers. He is one of a kind!

We hired Stephanie for a four-day corporate event and wow, we couldn't have asked for a better photographer! She was very professional, fun to work with and made those she photographed feel at ease. We threw her a few curve balls throughout the event (asked her to work an hour later than originally requested) but she accepted without hesitation. We highly recommend Stephanie and can't wait to work with her again!

We hired Robert and his team for our wedding back in April. We had them do both the photography and videography. Team did a great job of arriving on time and worked for 8 hours until the latter part of the reception. Had two photographers and a videographer. Great wedding shots and felt like we had just enough for what we wanted given we did not want to spend the entire wedding taking photos. Was very good about setting up the photo to set the shot and directing us on where to stand and look. I think overall we ended up with about 300 final photos which was plenty because no one wants to sort through 800 photos. Video was great quality and all in 4K. Videographer had some fancy stabilization. We received a few minute highlight video and then all the raw footage. Overall would highly recommend, especially for the value.

Working with Earl was really great! He was so professional and even came prepared with sketches of shot poses. I have worked with a lot of photographers and have never seen that (I was truly impressed!). He was a perfectionist and he wanted to make sure that we had several good shots to choose from. We ran into a little unexpected rain, but Earl was really flexible, again just wanting to make sure that we had the shots that we wanted. I would work with him again!

Marsha Kemp was one of the best photographers I have ever worked with! She made me feel extremely comfortable in front of the camera. She had a very good understanding of the "look" I was trying to pull off, and she nailed it! I will highly recommend her to anyone!!! She was the first person to get back to me on Thumbtack. Which I was very pressed for time and needed a headshot within that two days. She was quick with lots of ideas, helped with discussing clothing, hair, and makeup. Thanks to Marsha I have KILLER headshots! :)

Gloria did an AMAZING job with the pictures. She came early to see the place, and was very professional with her work. The previews and final pictures came out more than perfect. I could have not asked for a better photographer to capture my wedding memories. I highly recommend Gloria for any photoshoots you want, you will not be disappointed by the slightest. Definitely my go-to photographer for future events.

Brides or anyone needing videographers for an event...PLEASE READ! They are more than outstanding...they are exceptionally talented, creative and all around great guys to work with. You'll regret going with a cheaper package/option or one that only comes with 1 videographer. Trust me on this! I'd give them waaay more stars if they allowed me to!

We found Brandon by searching for a videographer on Thumbtack. We saw his sample video on his website moved by how beautiful and heartfelt the quality of the video was. We decided to book his services and were extremely pleased. He did a great job videoing the ceremony of our wedding and the highlight video was extremely well done. He was able to recommend for us a photographer that he knew who also turned out to be great. We have only received the highlight video so far, but if it is a sign of things to come with the professional video editing and the music then we are sure that the full length video will be amazing. We definitely recommend Brandon as a videographer for any event and the photographer he works with is wonderful as well.

Anyone who has dogs knows how hard it is to get them to cooperate! We decided we wanted our two golden retrievers to be part of our holiday card photos. What a chaotic mess the dogs were at first! Did that stop us from having an incredible experience? Nope! Professional photographer, very friendly, understanding, and talented! Y’all would be crazy not to hire Limboden Photography!

Tara is absolutely amazing! She is so talented and really good at directing you and making you feel comfortable in front of the camera. I am a videographer myself (and have done a few weddings) and she is so professional at what she does-she stays on top of everything! She captured all the specific photos I asked for on our wedding day and she is just so fun to be around!! Thank you so much Tara :)

Kaplan responded very quickly to our inquiry as we were on vacation & looking for a professional photographer. He kept in communication up to the day of the shoot & was on time & very professional. Very kind & offered to take photos of any shots that we may have wanted. We felt he went above & beyond to meet our needs & was very affordable. We haven't received the video yet but the pictures are wonderful & we will treasure them for years to come. We highly recommend!!

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.
