Ken Kashuba did excellent work for me. I had him transfer a VHS video to a DVD and clean up the audio and video reception. I also had him make one copy of a DVD for me. The work quality was excellent and he did this work in a very timely manner. I will definitely use Ken again.

Working with Fierce Little Bird productions was absolutely amazing! They were extremely quick to respond and really listened to all of our ideas about our project. Adam is extremely friendly and enjoyable to be around as well. He is creative, driven and has a phenomenal attention to detail. His hard work helped us create an amazing video that helped showcase the character and values of our organization. I honestly could not have asked for more out of this experience and if you want a fantastic video with a professional who cares, Fierce Little Bird productions is who you should hire.

We absolutely LOVED working with Nathan for my 40th Birthday Celebration. We hired him for Photo and Video service. Not only is his work great, he himself is a good person to work with. Finding the right photographer you can rely on to capture the essence of a event is stressful to anyone. But after just a few moments with Nathan, we knew we were in good hands! He masterfully captured moments in the most creative and elegant ways possible. We loved the way he interacted with us and our guests to make us feel comfortable and at ease throughout the entire Birthday. Nathan definitely helped make my day feel even more special, and we're happy with our choice of using Nathan as our photographer to capture one of the most important day of my life. We highly recommend him!

Jon was extremely helpful and full of creative ideas when I asked him to come down and take some pics for the new recording studio down here in North Pacific Beach. Sometimes it can be difficult to find a photographer with his sort of attention to detail. Jon's ability to grasp the concept of what I was going for was a huge plus and I recommend him to anyone looking for a photographer with a new, unique perspective and vision for whatever situation you maybe looking to capture.

What a great company to work with! This was our first time working with Beverly Boy and they were sure to make us feel right at home. From pre-production, all the way to the down to the very last revision, this company made sure that every single detail of our commercial was simply flawless. All the animation and moving components really added to the quality of our video, and we will definitely be using this company from now on!

Jim provided video production support for a series of training classes in my department at Harris Corporation. Jim was punctual and thoroughly prepared for the sessions. The resulting videos were consistently very high in quality. I got to view some of Jim's other multimedia work throughout his time at Harris, and his products always represented Harris well and demonstrated a high level of professionalism.

really impressed with his high end equipment, promptness, professionalism, and rates. you get what you pay for but in this case, SkyView went above and beyond to greatly exceed my expectations. The feedback I got from my companies aerial promotional video was unbelievable and its so interesting to see how one unique video shot in a different perspective of the same company ive been running for 10 years ... could attract media attention and a huge increase in customers. i had to hire 2 new staff to keep up so i couldnt be happier. thanks again

I use Adobe Premiere Pro and After Effects if needed. I also know a little Photoshop. I can edit just about any video, from weddings, short films, and commercials to even a video photo album. I am very professional when it comes to my services and will do my best to deliver the perfect finished product. You can check out my YouTube channel if you would like to see some works I have created and edited myself, or I have also edited a couple woodworking videos for a relative of mine. I look forward to editing your video.

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.
