Mr. Solock was a delight from the first point of contact until the end. He was super accommodating and professional. I supplied him wedding verbage and he help to put it in the sensical order. He delivered the script with personality and candor. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for a professional officiant.

I would like to extend a well deserved "thank you" to Monique for the extraordinary job she did for my daughter's wedding. She is so professional and patient, ensuring that my daughter and her bridal party's makeup was flawless. And to top that she made me look beautiful and 10 years younger (such a good feeling)!

Rick was fantastic! His team gave us five star service from the moment we met to after the wedding. Rick is organized and knows his stuff. People mentioned they have never seen so many people on the dance floor the ENTIRE night! He made sure the night was about us and not about him and his staff listened when I wanted certain music played. So many people have continued to ask me where I got Rick. You better snatch him up fast because I have feeling he will soon be hard to book! Thank you Rick! Our night was perfect.

Harry, of Snappybytes, did a wonderful job for our wedding reception photos. He was very professional and he dressed very professional as well. Harry was early, he was humble, and he was focused. He blended in well with our crowd and stayed in the background. Harry was so hardworking! He didn't sit down at all. I really appreciate Harry's flexibility, advice, and direction. Hiring Harry is one of the best investments I ever made because the photos are outstanding. He did a great job with portraits, candid shots, and he captured the scenery very well. I would hire him again because he's talented and his services are a great deal for the price. I highly recommend him for your event and I hope he's available for my next event!

Mark and Phil photographed our wedding in July 2017. They were extremely fun and easy to work with. Their professional eye for lighting and detail allowed for unique and elegant photos. Retiro Photo captured our special day, and gave us memories we will always cherish. I would (and do) recommend them for anyone looking for modern, fresh photographers!

David is a true visionary. He has a gift for taking an idea and creatively bring it to life through photography, technology and the arts. David was the photographer for my wedding. Or rather I should say the visionary for my wedding. My Wedding album and wall photography are so beautiful! I truly enjoyed working with him and watching him create artistically. He is a great listener, has great insight and phenomenal skills. He worked closely with my husband and I to assure our satisfaction. I highly recommend Didomi Design and Photography. I will be working with him shortly, again, on another project!

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.

What is a wedding planner?

A wedding planner is a professional service provider whose job it is to organize and execute all the details of a couple’s wedding. A wedding planner can be contracted at any stage in the wedding planning process to help to any degree the couple is willing to pay for. Wedding planning is similar to event planning in that a planning team handles the coordination of multiple wedding elements including catering, venue, guests, entertainment, decor, transportation and more. Anyone who has ever been involved in a wedding can confirm that wedding planning is hard work. Experience brings wisdom when it comes to avoiding or resolving day-of challenges. There is no legal regulatory body that oversees or certifies wedding planning as an industry. Anyone who chooses can call themselves a wedding planner. When looking for a wedding planner, be sure to read reviews, and make smart hiring decisions by asking about licenses and insurance.

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.

How much does it cost for a photographer for a wedding?

Finding the right wedding photographer can make a big difference for your ceremony. Nationally, the average wedding photographer’s price ranges from $800 to $1,000, but costs can be much higher in areas like Chicago, New York or Los Angeles where some couples spend $2,000 to $5,000 or more for the photographer they want. Factors that can affect your wedding photographer prices include the photographer’s reputation and experience. Heavy hitters can command top rates, especially during wedding-season weekends. Day of the week also affects your cost. You may get a $200 discount on wedding photographer prices if you get married on a Friday in November rather than a Saturday in June. Time onsite is also an important cost factor. Hiring a photographer to snap photos from the moment you wake up until after last call at the reception is going to cost more than five hours of pictures during the day. Multiple photographers, special lighting, and videography will also increase your costs. Ultimately you want to find someone who has a style you love and can provide the number of edited shots you want for a price you can handle. Learn more about hiring a wedding photographer.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
