Great videographer. Arrived earlier, prepped me well, was super congenial but unobtrusive through the event, and turned around quality work.

We recently married and were fortunate to have Karen and Larry videotape and edit our wedding. Not only are they nice people, they are also very talented videographers. They worked well with the wedding coordinator, photographers, DJ, the wedding party and the guests. They worked ALL day and everyone was impressed with their laid back style and professionalism. Although we wanted to see the video as soon as possible, Karen and Larry assured us that it would be better to wait until after they did the majority of the editing. They were right and the video is something special that we will enjoy and pass on to our children and grandchildren to enjoy. We cannot thank them enough for this beautiful wedding video!

Lori and her husband Manuel were outstanding! From the moment they walked through the door they made me feel like a star! They paid attention to detail! And communicated with my wedding planner about their every move. Manny even filled in and gave the blessing! They were more than became more than videographers. They went above and beyond their call of duty! The quality of their work is FANOMINAL. My video was theater quality, perfection! Lori and Manny once again went above and beyond to insure I was satisfied with the end results! Thank you Lori and Manny for making one of the most important days of my life a beautiful, everlasting memory that I can share with my family now and forever! Love, Andrea and Scot

He does a terrific job in a timely fashion and always makes sure his client is satisfied with the job done. I highly recommend him for any event you need a great photo/videographer.

We used Thumbtack to search for a videographer for our wedding. After talking to several businesses that responded, and also getting opinions and word of mouth from our friends that do DJ and live band work in the area, Avid Videographers was chosen. They were not only a complete pleasure to deal with before the wedding, but did everything they could to meet our budget. I used to do some wedding photography, and I was always taught that a quality photographer should be invisible at the ceremony. They should blend in. These two did. I can't remember where they were! They were never underfoot. The finished product was phenomenal. We were so happy with it. Chapters were included, great sound, and the best part: Our actual ceremony got a bit flubbed when a key part was left out of the middle and we had to do it at the end. Avid was great enough to edit it into the middle where it belonged. I HIGHLY recommend this team for your wedding or event. Thankyou, Avid!!!

    We wanted a video for a family member who could not attend the wedding and Dennis supplied us with that and more. It was wonderful receiving the recap video a day after the wedding. Dennis was very pleasant to work with and also very prompt in getting the finished video to us.

      Brian was hired as my wedding videographer in June 2016, and I couldn't have been happier. To start off, his communication was everything my wife and I needed. During our initial meeting, he asked me to bring example videos that I liked, and he took notes on everything that I had said was important to me. He also made sure to check in the day before to ensure he had the right time and location, and he even offered to come early to help us set up. During the ceremony, Brian was phenomenal. He got all the key shots we asked him to get and never once got in the way of our guests. He was polite, friendly, and at the same time assertive. He knew what he needed to film and he made sure that he got it. The entire time, I barely even noticed he was there. His turnaround time for the first edit of the video was extremely quick and with a great edit of our video. He had a few questions about my preferences for audio and color choice one on specific part of the video. It only took a week after that meeting that I got my final video. I can't say enough great things about Brian. He was wonderful to work with, and I will be hiring him for any future video projects that I may have.

      Booking Jimmy Ball is a “must” He's one of the most dedicated videographers I know. He works extremely hard and well-respected. He's great at leading projects from start to finish, and he's very consistent with delivering projects on time while giving you updates along the way. It’s easy to give simple 5-star ratings but Jimmy has earned it.

      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.
