I contacted LK Productions from Virginia to DJ my family reunion banquet in Atlanta, GA. I was contacted several times to make sure that my needs and expectations were clearly understood. I arrived in Atlanta with complete confidence that all would go well, Keven exceeded all expectations. He skillfully integrated the music, video, karaoke in a way that all of my family both young and not so young enjoyed the event. He even included a presentation of our family pictures. Kevin is the most skillful and professional DJ that I have ever seen. He has no competition. By the way his prices was reasonable too. Thanks Kevin. WCB

We needed two five-hour events recorded over two nights--a tall order--but Randy handled it all beautifully, working tirelessly behind the scenes to give us two different full-length videos and a highlights video. He arrived prepared at two different venues and personally took care of every detail that was needed. We loved how he focused and flowed with the moments that told the story, and we especially liked the expert way he wove the music into the action. Bravo, 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!

Matt Roberts with Chisel Multimedia provided excellent video production service (shooting and editing). He was totally professional. He went above and beyond the call of duty and did more than was expected to make a great video for us. He finished the project on time and within budget. His price was more than fair, in fact, he gave us a better price than anyone else and did a fantastic job. I will most definitely use his services again and I highly recommend him to others.

Ike and his partner did a great job as our wedding videographers! They were prompt, professional, accommodating and easy to work with and created a beautiful video with all the most important moments of our celebration. We would certainly recommend them to any couple looking for a videographer. We didn't think we'd have the budget for a video and decided to do it at the last minute and we never regretted it. One thing to think about it that there will be plenty of photos - through your photographer and friends and family, but nothing quite compares with a live video that shows all the emotions of the day. We highly recommend H&H Studios.

Ahren did my very first music video and I couldn't have asked for a better first time experience creating a piece of art for the world to see. She is such a talented individual with VISION. She takes all of your ideas into consideration and the outcome is incredible. Her color grading abilities are INSANE. She really knows how to create an entire MOOD and FEELING with how she shoots, edits, and color grades. I will always recommend her to future inquiries!

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.
