I hired Thaddeus to capture my college graduation, I wanted something to send to my family who could not attend. Not just any kind of video but one that would capture the essence of graduation as if they were apart of it. He did just that he even captured moments with friends and professors after the ceremony. I would most definitely refer Thaddeus Wilkins and Oceanspray Photography & Videography. They have amazing customer service, and take the time to listen to your vision and create it with in your budget. Keep doing excelent work !!

We chose the Dommels because we liked their photography style from previous wedding pictures. They worked with us to figure out what pictures we wanted, and also came up with some amazing pictures using their creative style for our outdoor wedding. Photo quality was very professional, we made our own album and had printed pictures of different sizes and they all came out great. The Dommels were very easy to work with planning for the wedding and during the photos.

Andy was incredibly easy to work with for our wedding. We met once prior to the wedding to discuss specifics about what we expected, wanted, and logistics. We touched base shortly before the wedding to solidify some details. On the day of, everything was handled well--I felt I had nothing to worry about which was incredibly calming in the midst of a busy day. I can't wait to see our video!

We recently worked with MotionPointe for our non-profit's event at the State Capitol. MotionPointe was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. From the moment we connected, Brian provided excellent feedback on our project and worked with us to get the output exactly to our specifications. As we were coming from out of town for the event, it was great to know there was one less thing to worry about with the videography. Excellent customer service, timely receipt of work, and quality output. Thanks again! A+

My husband and I purchased an engagement/wedding package from David last year. We didn't know what to do for pictures or where to even take them. David had WONDERFUL ideas. He talked about places in our area that we didn't know anything about that were beautiful. He suggested a place in Lincoln and he had no problem making the drive to catch that magical moment for us. Pictures came back and they were beyond beautiful/awesome/one of a kind. You name it that was it. (People are STILL talking about our pictures today, a year later). Then came our wedding. Oh my gosh. SOOOOO worth the money. I mean he had helpers on deck. So many pictures, so many different angles, he even got those magical moments with my husband and our children, my mother and grandmother talking before the wedding. He even made a slide show video with our photos and personally picked songs for background music that pertained to us and our personalities. My husband Anthony and I give David Turnbo an OUTSTANDING review. Hell, if we could give him more we would. I already sent my best friend to him for family photos and he did an outdoor winter theme and it was Beautiful. Please chose him to do pictures for ANY event or just yearly family photos. David will be our photographer for our family photos from now on and any event that he would be able to make it to. :-)

      What an amazing company. Even before I was engaged I knew Tin Box would be my wedding photographer. The ladies from Tin Box made our wedding day. It was like having a few extra sisters along for the ride. From wiping tears to making us laugh, they were there to do it all. They captured the day in a way I could have never dreamed of.

        About

        A different vision is more than our motto, it's our entire approach to photography and videography. With a little thought (or luck) anyone can capture an image that's in focus and exposed correctly. Add some props and you've got a picture with some personality, a portrait like you've see on hundreds of photography websites. They are nice, but they look like everyone else's. We believe in creating a mood. For us the image caught by the camera is just the start. We want magic, a feeling, to capture and create an image that goes beyond a nice photograph and makes the viewer forget themselves for a little bit. If you are looking for family portraits, capturing your senior in a way that expresses who they are, or turning your event into something magical contact us.

As a result, we are as strong in website design as we are in natural search engine optimization (SEO), social marketing and event marketing.

Our portfolio page gives you both—a close look at our work and what it says about our clients, and an in-depth, behind-the-scenes tour of what we had to do to bring those projects to fruition. Usually blood, sweat, tears and ice cream are involved.

        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.
