Good quality artistic wedding photos & video. One downside - not very responsive after the wedding to my questions.

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.

Mike was a true professional. He made the whole process easy, by providing excellent suggestions on ways to incorporate testimonials into the promotion of our real estate portfolio. The end result far exceeded our expectations! Currently working on another video project with Mike. I'd highly recommend All Corporate Video to anyone.

I have worked with Lane Cameron of Lane Cameron Photo for about three years now and every single one of the many projects we worked on have turned out better than I expected. Lane's attention to detail, "Can Do" attitude, as well as his highly creative and collaborative approach make him a joy to work with. HIs extensive knowledge of photography and video as well as art direction, set design, portrait and candid photography and digital manipulation make him my only choice when working in the Chicago area!

We are a new company that is marketing to schools. Our goal was to create a documentary style video that tells our story. Ed immediately understood what we needed and took charge. The quality of the video is outstanding. Ed has kept on schedule, was reasonably priced and was a pleasure to work with. I will continue to rely on Homesick Blues Productions for any video work we need in the future.

Ryan did professional headshots for me and they turned out great!!! I wanted a daylight portrait with a simple background and thats exactly what he gave me. The quality of the digital images were perfect for both print and web. He was very easy going and professional! After a while I barely noticed him shooting. Before I knew it we were done. He quickly reviewed some images me on the spot. Later that same evening I was able to view an online gallery and download images. Very reasonable price for quality!

We booked Kevin at the last minute to film our wedding ceremony, and he did a FANTASTIC job. There were so many last minute details, that we didn't get everything taken care of, but Kevin made the video stuff very easy. His post-production skills are awesome, too. Everyone LOVES our highlight video. Even our friend who does event planning in TN for a living said it was one of the best highlight videos she had seen. Overall, this exceeded our expectations and even our hopes. Strong recommend to anyone who is considering booking him. Some details on our job: Mainly indoor filming. Large wedding party. We got a highlight video and a full ceremony video. We didn't book the video for the reception, just ceremony.

I had a difficult client that needed a training video for their small company. Dave was perfect in helping them refine their content, making them comfortable, then shooting a really great piece with no troubles at all. Excellent, we will hire him again.

It's been a pleasure working with Jack of Lane Media & Productions. We had an immediate need for a short video which Jack promptly responded to with a very competitive bid. He was extremely patient and accommodating, especially when the 'quick' video resulted in many delays on our end. He was always prompt in responding to my emails/calls; provided professional advice and knowledge to help educate me on the process; and provided professional, high-quality video output. It was an easy experience.

What can I say about Bobby?! He’s responsible for the single most beautiful piece of video I’ve ever seen. Long story short, I contact Bobby a week before I had planned to propose to my then-girlfriend. He responded asap and was on-board for every detail. He arrived early to the venue and found a spot completely out of sight and captured both photos and video of the event. I’ve been showing folks the stills and video, and I’ve had to console them because they’re crying, because of how beautiful his work is. He was punctual, kind, direct and expert, and I would trust him to document any event! Can’t say enough awesome things about Bobby and my experience!! Bobby Did It forever!!

Chris went above and beyond at every step of the process to fulfill our vision for our video. His unique talent and eye for aesthetic design as well as his technical background make him the perfect fit for anyone looking to take their visuals to the next level. I shopped around quite a bit before finding Chris and I don't have a single regret about this decision as he was tireless in his attention to detail and his level of care for this project was incomparable. He worked professionally and timely while still delivering exactly what we wanted. He is a great professional to work with, does fantastic work, and I highly recommend him for any video editing needs.

I am writing on behalf of my operatic comedy group Forte Chicago. White Fox Cinema recorded two of our full-length, live shows, The Sausage Show & Other Bites in May 2016 and Winter Whisper in February 2017. They were extremely easy to work with and were always prompt and courteous in their communication before and after the performances as well as in their arrival at the venues. They provided a high quality video recording that captured the wide array of spectacle and color we use in our shows as well as our operatic sounds in these small venues. We loved how they were able to capture several angles and seamlessly tie them together in an awesome video edit. I have nothing but good things to say about these guys and would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a timely, professional, and high-quality product!

My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Ben for our wedding on August 31, 2018. Ben was highly professional and the entire experience was wonderful. Initially we thought we had a plan of what we wanted but once speaking to our photographer, Ben, he reshaped our thinking and with his advice our photo shoot was amazing. Ben suggested a scenic garden for the after ceremony photo shoot. This alternative location offered the best backdrop for our pictures, unlike the marsh we initially opted for. Ben also suggested video of the ceremony. We're definitely happy we took the cinematography portion, too. On our wedding day everything was awesome and timed to schedule. The entire photoshoot was our favorite experience, so private! Ben was very patient and gave posing instructions when needed. All of the photos and videos were prepared of top quality and we received our final footage before the promised completion date. We now consider Ben our new family photographer. Thank you Ben and More Done!

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.
