I hired Leslie to do a photo shoot of a company meeting I was hosting in Washington DC. Leslie was great. She was very easy to communicate with in advance - I was coming to an event from out of town and she made it really easy to work with her. She captured great moments and photos turn out really well. She also does a same day delivery of key shots and then had 100s of the event photos edited and ready for me within a week! I recommend Leslie for event photography and will use her if my company is in DC area again.

Greggo Lee Films has been my go to cinematographer for my international service trips. I travel with 15-20 kids each year to Belize and the owner of Greggo Lee Films personally attends this trip and documents the entire journey. His level of professionalism, energetic interaction with the kids and locals, and flexibility during the trip were unmatched. I was highly impressed by the photos and video he created. There were many memories that I had no idea were captured until I received the final product. His eye for a great shot is impeccable. I would highly recommend using this company for any event domestic or international.

Malcholm is hands down the best videographer that I've worked with and I've worked with a lot. His passion, skill, and attention to detail puts him heads and shoulders above everyone else. After seeing the incredible portfolio online, i called Malcholm and we talked a couple times via phone to discuss my project. I was impressed with his perspective regsrding the filming of my event as well as his promptness in replying to my emails. On the day of the event, Malcholm arrived earlier that the job required to connect with me and to get perspective on where he would be able to capture the best footage. The day after the event, he had all of the recorded footage sent to me! The earliest that I have received my footage in the past was a week. Malcholm is the real deal. Saying he exceeded my expectations is an understatement. Hoan Do Author, Speaker, American Ninja Warrior HoanDo.com

Claude is an absolutely amazing videographer! He is very professional, arriving on time and very responsive to texts and emails. My bridal party thought he and my photographer were from the same company because they collaboarated so well. His rates are very affordable, especially for the high quality product you receive. It rained on my wedding day so I can imagine how much more awesome our video would have been with the drone footage! Coworkers watched our wedding video and commented that it was like a movie trailer. If Claude is free on a day you need filming, you are in luck. Book him immediately!! https://youtu.be/Uq9o5f4bM4U

Hired Pretty Elektrik for an engagement video to show during the cocktail hour for my wedding. They were incredibly prompt on the day of filming, captured great quality footage and turned our final video around in under a week. Utilized their services to capture our wedding and we received the first draft of our wedding video while on our honeymoon. The team is absolutely great to work with all while providing great service and high value videography. I've hired Pretty Elektrik for other events and will continue to use their services in the future.

Brandon's an excellent editor, whose commitment to quality is evident in his deliverables. While editing is something that can be taught, a great editor is someone who is born with the ability to finesse the right shot selection for the story, the right cut for seamless pacing and the right combination of useful film with artistry to create evocative, sensory storytelling. Brandon brings it all to his work. I highly recommend Brandon as an editor and valuable asset to any post-production project.

I am so excited to see the footage Tyler shot of our wedding! They were a great company to work with and made our wedding day such a breeze! Eduardo was very helpful and professional to work with in setting everything up. He ended up not being able to shoot our wedding himself, but the videographer he did send was such a pro! Tyler was very creative, kept the day relaxed and fun, and was so helpful. They were a blast to work with and I'm sure the results will be just as amazing!

My husband and I had two separate events, and Adam was eager to ensure both were filmed professionally, artfully, and with detail. He showed up early to both events, communicated with us in advance as to how he could best meet our needs and how quickly he would get our video to us, and filmed in a manner that was unobtrusive. We loved that he made our guests feel comfortable giving interviews, which after seeing them, added so much! As the bride and groom, its easy to get caught up in the moment, but the footage Adam captured gave us a more rounded perspective on how much fun our guests were having as well. Adam worked with us on what we wanted in our short clip as well as the long version, and didn't try to rush out a product that we weren't going to be happy with. As it turned out, the first draft he produced said it all. We couldn't be happier. To anyone wanting the perfectly captured wedding, Adam Martray is the one to go to.

I would highly recommend Danglinn Productions for your wedding videography needs! Andrew was extremely professional and very responsive to all of my emails and telephone calls. He was able to accommodate all of my requests to provide exactly what I was hoping for in our wedding video! The actual videographers were Ryan Deal and his wife, Amber, both of which were extremely friendly and professional. They arrived early, stayed late, and were there to capture every single wedding detail that I could've hoped for. They had never shot video at the Naval Academy before, but still captured every important detail and feature of the Chapel like they had filmed there a million times. I didn't even realize they were there half the time so it was a huge treat to watch the video and see all of the amazing details and moments they caught on tape. Andrew Linn did the editing and produced the actual wedding video and highlight clip. His work was absolutely impeccable!! He included all of the important moments and events with perfect transitions between everything. I couldn't be more pleased with the final product and am so happy to be able to watch the videos and relive the best day of my life forever!!

Franklin Sayers is an incredibly talented film maker. Not only is he a videographer, he is a world class producer. When Franklin was filming my project for my website, he asked me what I was going to talk about. After listening and talking in into his heart, he said Ok - wait a minute, "I will return". He walked around the property and came back and said, This is where we are going to do the filming". He is very creative. He doesn't just get behind a camera and shoot, He has vision, passion and talent when he is filming. The result is a world class film. He puts his heart and soul into the entire project. He included me and asked for my feedback and we worked together as a team. I was nervous the first time I was about to be filmed. He is so relaxed and kind, he put me at ease after the first couple takes. He kept encouraging me, which enabled me to relax and be myself. Franklin is awesome and I am blessed that God sent him to me. There is no question about it, God sent him to me. I didn't even want to update my website, I didn't want to have a video done of me. when Franklin approached me, I listened to him and was open. I didn't shut the door and I am thrilled and thankful that Franklin became part of my team at Bayley & Bender making my website a show piece. I highly recommend Franklin Sayers - he is beyond Outstanding. He is the BEST of the BEST. God gave him a very special talent and he is using this talent to help you and make you shine!!! He created and produced a sensational film for me. And to top it off---- he is nice and great to work with!!! It doesn't get any better than that. He is doing God's work!!!

I hired Scene Clearly Films to film my boyfriend's surprise 40th birthday party. Darryl and his team were a joy to work with! They were incredibly professional and timely. I was quite busy during the party planning process, as well afterward, but Darryl was very accommodating. He made some very helpful recommendations, including having two videographers onsite - which allowed them to capture the party from multiple angles. The end product was gorgeous and seamless. I also needed them to create a promotional video for my business, and they did a fantastic job. I will definitely be hiring this company again for future work, especially as I get started in rolling out my new event planning business! Thanks Darryl and team for capturing so many memories!

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.
