I was in need of someone who could create a portfolio video of my daughter for her college soccer recruiting efforts. I had film of 3 full length games plus extra footage, and needed quick work. Jonah responded immediately with an amazing quote. He was professional, communicative and delivered on his promise if a finished project in 48 hours. It's exactly what we needed and we love it! He was very patient with me when I had multiple challenges uploading the original film for him to work from and I just couldn't have asked for a better experience. In addition, after all the work which I know was more than expected for him, he honored his original quote, which was a huge help to me! I highly recommend Jonah and truly appreciated his collaboration and personable style.

We used StoriesUp for two separate days of filming at our schools with very tight schedules. Both days Jordan was there early and ready to go. We accomplished more in those two days than we initially anticipated. The 4K video was high quality and easy for us to edit for multiple purposes. Jordan clearly understands what it takes to film in a school setting as well as an industrial setting (career & technical education shops). If we have a similar project need in the future we will absolutely reach out to StoriesUp.

Michael was amazing. He was very professional and comical. He wedding video turned out great. He filmed the rehearsal, rehearsal dinner, and the wedding. The editing was great and had so many different angles. During the wedding I counted 5 different cameras set up. I expected to have to pay extra for so many but I didnt. He was very attentive and gave me plenty of copies for friends and family. I will definitely be using him for any future filming needs.

John H.
Verified review

My business had several videos produced by StoryPoint. Andy worked with pre-production, scripting, video capture, coaching talent, voiceover, animations, post production and even handled getting translations into Japanese. One video required a number of scenes to be filmed in Norway. Andy was able to source a local agency to complete the required video scenes and conduct the interviews with senior company personnel. The final product is one of my top performing lead generating videos. I have access to an internal corporate audio visual team but I choose StoryPoint because the projects are completed quickly, efficiently, and under budget. The final results are hands-down, better than anything that I can have produced internally.

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!

The guys at Double Take Media did a fantastic job filming our wedding and reception! We were really impressed that they took the time to come to the church during our rehearsal to get ideas and see the layout. I usually feel very uncomfortable being filmed so I was nervous about my wedding day, but the guys really just blended in and filmed what was happening. I forgot they were even there most of the time! They were able to take all of that footage and edit it to really focus on what was important. My husband and I are so glad that we went with Double Take Media to capture our wedding day!

This guy really knows his stuff. I'm a singer/songwriter who has filmed multiple music videos with Josh, and he never ceases to amaze me with the quality of work he produces. His compositions are always elegant, yet not too flashy. Video quality is also insanely clear. Like, I didn't even know reality was that clear. To top it off, the guy is awesome to work with, and couples professionalism and warmth into one harmonious blend. I'm definitely going to be working with Josh in the future, and I recommend him for anyone needing anything video.

    About

    My name is Jorge H. Flores. I'm an innovator, videographer, film editor, photographer, audio engineer, actor, musician and producer based out of St.Louis, MO. I recently decided to start my own independent film company, Dream 17 Films. My projects consist of music videos, weddings, private and public parties, commercials, etc. I love being creative with projects, and I love to be given opportunities to demonstrate my attention to detail. I'm familiar with a variety of programs both in the film field and audio field; programs such as, Premiere Pro CS6, Photoshop, Pro Tools, CEP, FL Studio, and much more. I work great with music, and the ability to compose is my forte, but over the last four years, I've fallen in love with photography/film and post-production. I'd love to help with any projects you need assistance with, and flexibility is a non-issue when it comes to getting things done the right way. As I've stated, my ability to detect perfection seems to be what drives me, so if you're looking for an individual who is certain to deliver quality, keep me in mind. Also, feel free to check out some of my video work and photography work. Thank you. Sincerely, Jorge

    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.
