My brother in law needed a karaoke DJ for a party for his wife's birthday party. DJ LK entered a quote. I gave him a call to make sure he was what we needed and he was hired. DJ LK had a professional setup and slayed at the party. He Used video technology to play ,music in between the karaoke numbers. He was a great host. He sang and even did a little comedy. One lady that was at the party wanted to book him for her event. He was amazing. We were having such a good time, we wanted him to stay longer. He agreed( after we paid him the additional fee of course) I would hire him everytime from now on.

Randy did an amazing job capturing our special day! Having never met in person beforehand, I was a little apprehensive on how it would all go down. The control freak in me will never die. :) However, Randy turned it out! As most of you might expect, wedding days are a blur with all of the excitement. My husband and I knew we wanted to capture and save every little bit of it. Pictures were amazing but filming is something that is worth more than gold. Randy delivered the highlight video promptly and we couldn't have been happier with it. The full film came less than a week later and we can't stop watching it! Randy is reliable, responsive and beyond talented. I highly recommend him for any event you need filmed. Thanks again, Randy!

It was such a pleasure for me to work with Kathleen for my parents 50th anniversary video. She is super organized, an excellent communicator and was able to work so amazingly well with my many requests for customizing the video. Many of the video clips were not even in English, but Kathleen did not skip a beat! I have tremendous regard for her utmost professionalism and ability to deliver an outstanding product. Thank you Kathleen for being such a dream to work with. You really made my parents feel so loved and special with the beautiful video created. Cheers!

Ike from H & H Studios did an outstanding job with the recent filming and post-production work on the videography of my father's funeral. He was very caring and compassionate and really worked hard to make sure he was doing everything we wanted. We would certainly use him again in the future should the need arise and recommend that you use his services, too. You won't be disappointed.

I was so glad to have Pharren to help me with the video. I was touched by her professionalism and responsiveness. She arrived earlier than expected. We planned on a 3-hour service, but she continued to shoot the video for me after 3 hours and she even didn't have time to eat with us. Also, I love the video that Pharren shot before, even though it is not for wedding. But the video she took makes realize that she is unique and she always use video to tell a beautiful story, and that's why we chose her and loved her. If you are looking for someone to shoot a wedding or event video, I would strongly recommend her.

David's work is absolutely amazing! When he arrived on the first day of filming, I knew immediately that he was the real deal! His equipment is top notch and the quality of his images are absolutely stunning! His eye for the perfect shot is superb! For me, my anxiety levels get really high behind the camera. But even in that, it was so refreshing to have a filmographer like David who has the ability to make you feel comfortable behind the camera despite the "awkwardness". Even beyond the quality of his camera, his professionalism makes for awesome business! His prices are reasonable and flexible, and he is willing to sit down with you over coffee to understand the direction you're wishing to go in! It's been a wonderful experience working alongside David! I am more than confident that you can't go wrong choosing him as the next guy to film your next project! He is FIRST RATE! 👌🏾👌🏾👌🏾💯

I will let others know about Miguel's photography services for sure! I was the wedding planner for a recent wedding at the Westin Colonnade and I had the pleasure of working with Miguel which the Bride had hired. I was very impressed with his professionalism, he worked very well as part of the team in keeping things on schedule. When I saw the photos just three days after the wedding I noticed that he had taken beautiful pictures yet he was non intrusive during the ceremony and reception. Miguel's love for people and photography is evident in his work. He delivers Champagne taste on a modest budget. I highly recommend him for your wedding. Nora

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. 

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
