Derik and his business partner David absolutely killed it at our wedding! I initially wasn't going to hire a videographer for our wedding last month but after some cajoling from my mom, we decided to hire one and I'm glad we found Derik! He crafted a highlight video that perfectly captured the emotional energy of our day and featured the love we share. We got the email when we were in the airport on our way back from the honeymoon and we just laughed and cried the whole way through it. Derik and David were also very fun to work with, and had great energy on our wedding day!

Aaron made our day amazing! I have seen our wedding video four time and I still tear up. It's absolutely a beautiful reflection of our wedding day. He was always early to meetings and very professional! On our wedding day he was there early and stayed until the very end. He caught all the important stuff and more! Every time I looked there he was! I am so happy we decided against our first choice for Aaron! He has a great talent for capturing all the moments of your perfect day! I will always treasure our video and show it to my kids and grandbabies!

My husband and i decided at the last minute to get a videographer for our daughter's wedding. Ralph responded immediately and answered all of my questions. He was knowledgeable and friendly and walked me through everything technical that i knew nothing about. I was extremely impressed and decided to use RHJ Visuals. My daughter's wedding was yesterday in Cincinnati Ohio. Ralph is from Indianapolis Indiana. He gave us a time when he would be at our home and he was right on time. He was extremely professional and so easy to work with. His two assistants were as well. I would definitely recommend him to anyone. You wont be disappointed! Thank you Ralph for a wonderful day!

Leah is well known for her incredible videography skills, but what some might not realize is that she is a wonderful photographer as well. Leah took me and my fiancé's engagement pictures and did such a great job! She made us feel so comfortable throughout the entire shoot, along with making us laugh to get some great shots. After our shoot with Leah, we decided to ask her to be our wedding photographer! We will hang the pictures that Leah has taken (and will take) in our home forever. I will recommend Leah Trib Productions time and time again.

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 am the mother of the bride and originally was not interested in hiring a videographer for my daughter's wedding. I was wrong! The video preview was outstanding and a great way to share an overview of the day with guests that could not make it to Indiana during the January snow storm(s). Keith and his assistant were very professional the entire day. They under promised and over delivered. Keith was the first to arrive at the venue and the last to leave, exceeding our expectations. In addition, we were sorely disappointed with our photographer so Keith spent over two hours with us capturing "stills" from the video to compensate for the photo opps our photographer missed. If you have any reservations about hiring him just let them go and book him NOW! He's worth the money and will not disappoint!

    After hearing some great things about Suraj's work, I decided to hire him to handle the videography for our wedding. Out of all of the decisions I had made regarding my wedding, this was hands down one of the best. Suraj was able to capture moments that would not have even occurred to other videographers to capture, and he framed every important moment beautifully. After my friends and family saw our highlights (which had a very quick turnaround) and our final video, I was asked at least 20 different times about who my videographer was. Many of my friends and acquaintances even ended up booking him and were pleased with his work as well. I would definitely recommend Suraj to anyone who is considering him for a project or event - he is professional, reliable and has a keen eye for detail and creativity.

Not only did they give us some amazing footage of our ceremony and reception, they also made the experience so sweet with how incredibly helpful they were. We had a fantastic experience with them and will enjoy reliving our special day for many, many years!

          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.
