I normally don't leave reviews, but Aaron and his team did an absolutely amazing job with our wedding. They arrived two hours earlier than they were supposed to so they could make sure everything went right. Aaron was one of the nicest guys and my bridesmaids had nothing but nice things to say about him. My husband even asked him to play golf with him next month. Our wedding video was done in only two weeks and I love it. I've watched it too many times. If your looking for a group of great videographers and fun guys I definitely recommend this company.

We could not have asked for a better photographer for our wedding! Shaun was friendly, polite, punctual, and skilled. He was such a joy to work with and handled my chaotic schedule (and multiple meeting cancellations) without any complaint or frustration. I have not seen all of the photos from the wedding yet, but the previews we have had so far are phenomenal. We will for sure be using him in the future!

Tori filmed our wedding day and made a beautiful highlight film capturing all of the key moments from the day. The attention to detail was incredible. The music used throughout the film and sections of speeches chosen fits our personalities and wedding day so perfectly! She included our full vows and all of the speeches at the end of our keepsake DVD. She was wonderful to work with and super quick with the finalized product. She far exceeded our expectations and we are so happy that we have this footage to relive our day for years to come! I can't recommend her enough for your special day!

I am so thankful that I met Jordan! He was very professional, but very kind. He went along with all of our silly ideas, whether it was going out in the middle of the street, or meeting at times that were convenient for me. I am so thankful we had double take media for our wedding video. Our wedding video turned out so amazing and love it! You will not meet another professional like Jordan and Double Take Media!

Tom did our wedding video and it turned out amazing! He was awesome to work with and really listened to what we had in mind for the video. He recorded audio of speeches and vows and combined them in the video with different clips, which I loved. He’s very responsive and easy to talk to. During the wedding he was there the entire time (and long before too) and was extremely professional. I would definitely recommend him for many reasons!

    John was very accommodating to us. After cancelling his services for one family event in St. Louis, he allowed us to use that deposit toward our son's wedding. He and his crew drove from St. Louis to Shelbyville, IN at no cost to us to DJ the reception. He did a wonderful job. He was able to play the songs we wanted. He also gave us a great list of songs to choose from. I wanted him to DJ another son's wedding 14 months ago, but at the time he was not DJing. I would recommend him to anyone

    I cannot say enough about the work Force One has done. They developed an absolutely amazing movie of my wife and I's wedding! The quality of the shots were absolutely stunning and it captured so many of the memories that we created that day! This company definitely knows what they are doing! This is a small snippet of what he did for us. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sGAuo97MY0M The company also provided a full 90 minute long production of the entire day. I could go on and on...

    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.

      � Summary: We need two separate estimates. One should be for short intro videos for online lectures in an online course. The total amount of video would be one hour, and the professor would work off of scripts. We would want this to be filmed in one entire day or in two half days. The second estimate would be for the filming of ten hours of video for use in an online course. This would be filmed in a maximum of 10 half days of work. � Video Content: You would only need to shoot video. We would not need any editing services. For the first estimate above, you would shoot roughly 40, 30-90 second videos that would introduce audio lectures that professors would record separately. For the second estimate above, you would need to need to shoot 20, 30 minute videos during half days of work. � Schedule: We would want to complete shooting by the end of December. While it is possible that the shooting could begin as early as November 2, it is more likely that it would take place during December prior to Christmas. � Three One-Day Shoots: For the first estimate, the shooting needs to be completed in either one full day or two half days. For the second estimate, the shooting needs to be completed in no more than ten half days. � Preparation: We would require the professor to have all scripts prepared in their final form in advance of the shoots.
