I knew I wanted a videographer but had to wait until closer to our wedding day to make the final decision! Derik and his crew did not disappoint! My husband and I can’t get over how amazing our videos turned out! And a plus at quickly we received the videos back! Check this guy out, you won’t regret it!

Green Hat Media did a fantastic job as videographer for our wedding!! My husband and I met Garrett at a wedding and he showed us a highlight reel that he had produced previously and we knew we wanted one for our wedding. He was timely, had affordable pricing and was very professional. Can't wait to work with him again on our upcoming maternity shoot! Highly recommend Green Hat Media!

I've hired Desmond both as a videographer and a photographer for a few events I've had. Each time he was real professional, on time, creative along with a good vision of the shots I needed. I definitely recommend Desmond for any video or photo work you need done. I'll be hiring him again.

Collin did a fantastic job filming our family reunion. The video was a wonderful mix of up close and personal shots along with beautiful panoramic views of the Brown County scenery. His team was extremely professional and willing to take the time to get all the shots we wanted of the day. Will definitely work with Ebel Media again!

Chasney took the best pictures! We combined senior pictures with some family pictures of both my boys. I was sent hundreds of proofs to choose from, I just couldn't decide they were all so good. Awesome value for the price and they were exactly what my son wanted. Will use her again! Thanks Chasney!

Katie (Breidenbach) Rutter of One Pot Productions is truly a one-stop shop when it comes to video communication. The video and story she produced for Catholic New Service about the monastery baked goods of the Sisters of St. Benedict of Ferdinand was a real hit in the community. Better yet, it motivated people to send in orders for the sisters’ cookies. Katie’s video was of top-notch quality, professionally shot and edited by her. And the process was so simple, as Katie was fun to work with, and put the sisters she was interviewing at ease. She also provided a well-written accompanying story about our cookies. So she really can do it all – she is creative, full of ideas, an excellent journalist, videographer, and video editor, and all at a reasonable price. And you can count on her doing what she says she’s going to do. Greg Eckerle Communications Director Sisters of St. Benedict of Ferdinand, Indiana

    Gareth Davis took our Boot Camp Classes in the fall of 2011 & did a great job in our class over 4 weeks. Gareth mentioned that he did video so we hired him to do a video in Jan of 2012 for us. What a great decision we made because the video came out great highlighting our boot campers in action and testimony! With Gareth taking our classes he had an insight not like other videographers. He knew how to capture our boot campers doing what they do best: having fun while losing weight & getting in shape! He also had a very easy/laid back personality & was easy to work with! Hire Gareth for your next project!

    That it's not really work. To me, creating people's visions is more satisfying than anything else.

    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.
