They were readily available to capture every moment of it. Words are inadequate to express our joy for the time and effort they put in to taking our photos and recording our video. For sharing in our special day; for your invaluable help, support, patience, and for capturing our forever moments, we say thank you. May God Bless you, your family and business. Eddie & Naomi

Justin did all of the videography for our wedding by himself and he did an amazing job. He arrived on time, immediately set to work and did not stop until the end of the night. There was supposed to be two videographers filming our wedding and Justin found out at the last minute that the other could not make it, he did the job of two people that day. The video and sound quality are both clear and perfect, we were so impressed by that. He beautifully captured so many moments of our day and that’s priceless. There were no issues in communication with Justin and he was very pleasant to work with. I always dreamed of having a professional videographer film our wedding day and we are very blessed that Justin was able to be that person.

It was a very pleasant experience! Ken Moore and all of his staff provided great service and went the extra mile to make sure my wedding video met not only my expectations, but their high standards. The editing was done to keep it at a length that was short enough to actually watch it (lol), but none of the important highlights were missed. They worked well with my photographer as well to make sure our day was as smooth as possible.

My husband and I at first didn't want to hire a videographer for our wedding because of the cost involved. Most videographers for the type of style that I liked were $2,000+ to have for the whole wedding day. I started doing research and found Nick at the recommendation of another vendor. After seeing the quality of videos he produced and how much he was asking for his services, my husband and I didn't even have to think about it, we knew we wanted to hire Nick. From day 1 Nick was a pleasure to work with, he was eager to give us exactly what we wanted. He even came out to film a first look on the day before the wedding at no extra cost to us! On the day of the wedding, Nick made sure to capture all those candid moments, including catching my Man of Honor striking a pose! Nick finished getting our feature film together in about three weeks, which from what I heard is a really quick turnaround time! My husband and I were so thrilled with our video, the footage was beautiful and so well edited. It was like watching movie on the big screen, and we were the stars! I would highly recommend Nick Laws to anyone searching for an excellent videographer and especially to those on the fence about hiring one, it's so worth it!

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.
