I can’t even begin to tell you how grateful my wife and I are for choosing Doxica Productions for our wedding. Nathan and Ciara captured the spirit and love of our wedding day in a way that brings tears of love and joy to our eyes over and over again. Their highlight video wasn’t just a recording of the day, it was a perfect representation of us as a couple. If you’re considering a videographer for your wedding, don’t hesitate and book them now. You won’t regret it. Doxica is worth every penny and we’re so filled with joy to have such a phenomenal keepsake of our wedding day! The Nitty Gritty: 1) It’s clear they have top notch equipment. The video quality was great through various lighting situations including very low light. The audio captured was great even though it was windy. Our opening drone shot of Breckenridge was absolutely jaw dropping and really captured why we chose our destination wedding. 2) Nathan and Ciara are incredible to work with (easy, communicative, etc) and it’s absolutely clear that they have a passion for filmmaking and videography. 3) Their song choices for our videos were absolutely perfect for us. Without exaggeration, they still bring tears to our eyes. 4) They were never intrusive on our wedding day and worked really well with our photographer to capture the moments. 5) Incredible turnaround time on our video. It’s so amazing to not have to wait very long to actually experience the day since the day of flies by. 6) The artistry and talent in the filming and editing of our video is top notch. It’s obvious Nathan and Ciara are filmmakers and not just videographers. If you happen to have knowledge of filming techniques, they beautifully and appropriately use time lapse, slow motion, pull focus, panning dolly shots, etc. Nothing is used “just because” as each technique supports their story telling. 7) If you want beautiful heartfelt memories, you’ll love them!

Our company WGHP FOX8 television had a wonderful experience working with Ken Hyde. We found Ken on the internet. We needed to hire a freelance producer/videographer to help us cover the NCAA men's basketball tournament in Boise, Idaho. Our station couldn't make the trip, so we hired Ken to be our point man for our coverage. Ken was very quick to respond to my voice mail message. During my first conversation, I knew he was the man for our job. He was very knowledgeable, very flexible with his schedule and willing to do whatever to get the job done. He was hired to shoot video of our local team at basketball practice and conduct interviews with the players. Although, Ken was unfamiliar with our players, he wasn't shy about gathering interviews. He shot high quality video and interviewed several players, so we could produce a story about our team that was competing in Boise. The turn around for this project was quick and deadline driven and Ken delivered ahead of time. Everything Ken sent to us was excellent. The video looked great on our nightly sportscast and we couldn't have done it without Ken. I would highly recommend Ken for your next project. I believe Ken would delivery the same positive results for your video project. Timmy Hawks Sports Operations Manager WGHP FOX8 Television Greensboro, NC

It's easy to credit Zak as a hardworking videographer and editor which he's proven to be. I've had the opportunity to work along side him, for a client who was unsure of what boundaries to stay within. Zak's sense of confidence and creative execution topped the client's original concept, ending in a production design they were definitely pleased with.

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.
