KMc Video did great work! When my client decided days before the wedding to add videography, KMc Video Productions came to our rescue. They moved a few things around to accommodate us and did an amazing job.

We chose Chloe for our wedding photography and it was by far the best decision I had made! Chloe's fun and kind personality makes you feel very comfortable in front of the camera which was very important in my case since my husband is very camera shy. She captured the natural happy essence that I was really looking for. You can tell she has a huge heart for photography because our wedding photos are amazing. I haven't stopped looking through them for months! With a bridal party of 22 people she was able to control and capture all the exciting moments in the most elegant ways possible. She was well above our expectations and we highly recommend her to anyone looking for a talented and professional photographer!

Karen and Larry did an outstanding job of videotaping my sister’s wedding. They arrived early and stayed late. We have pre-wedding shots in the video that are lovely. They captured all of the beautiful moments of the ceremony and the highlights of the reception. The introduction to the wedding was a slideshow with music and the end of the video contained a slideshow set to music with the highlights of the entire day. We have a personal comments and reflections section that is moving and hilarious. Thank you for all of your hard work and patience in creating our extraordinary wedding video!

Caponeyboy Productions is incredible! We hired them to be the videographer for our wedding in July 2017 and they did an outstanding job from beginning to end. Our main point of contact, Anthony, was awesome! He is extremely creative, and was super friendly and accommodating to all of our needs. The day of the wedding, he brought an assistant videographer, and together, they captured all of our special moments and made us feel super comfortable in front of the camera. We just received our first cut of the highlight video and we were completely impressed. Their attention to detail was incredible and we were thrilled that they captured the essence of our day. They definitely went above and beyond and were very affordable. I HIGHLY recommend them for your wedding or video needs :) Angela K. 8/14/17

Heather and her crew from swan production did an amazing job! They did photography and videography for our wedding a month ago in sept 2015. Im so happy they caught all the moments and gave us so many options of photos to keep in our memory book! The video was outstanding, so many different views that we can enjoy watching our memories over and over again. My husband and I both strongly suggest them! You won't be disappointed! Thanks again!

    Jose Luis was AWESOME. Not only does he do amazing work but he was early and super helpful leading up to the wedding to make sure we would have the videography we wanted for our wedding. His wife Candace is not only a great photographer but she is such a sweet and great person that helped direct the shots as well as provide additional footage for us to have the best footage of our wedding!

    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.
