Andy was great. He has a wonderful personality and he was very patient. My husband and I hired him to video tape our wedding and reception. He did an excellent job. He gave us the end product the very next week. I was so excited. He was very quick and it was of high quality. I have told everyone I know that if they have an event coming up and they are looking for a videographer Andy is their man.

AN ABSOLUTE DREAM COME TRUE! Our wedding video was incredible. Like a music video you'd see on TV. I honestly wasn't expecting that, either, considering the price was about half of what other videographers quoted me for fewer hours of filming and a shorter video. I got it last night and can't stop watching it, and I sob at how beautiful it is every time. My husband was moved to tears and blown away. On top of it all, Dave was professional but very sweet. And stealthy!! Lol! I was worried about having a camera all in my bubble all day, but he blended in like a ninja, hahaha! I'm still in shock at how great it is. I posted it online, and friends who were there said it captured the day perfectly. Those who couldn't make it said it made them feel like they were there. I can't thank him peace love films enough for giving me this beautiful documentation of our day!

I used Eberly's for my Senior pictures and they were amazing! So when it came time to choose a photographer/ videographer for my wedding, I immediately thought of Eberly's. Terry and Jen are very fun, easy-going, and talented! I highly recommend using their services! Thank you Eberly Photography & Videography!

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!!!

Although I have only worked with David remotely from another state, his professionalism and terrific work did not suffer one bit. 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.

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.

    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.  
    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
