Thumbtack was a shot in the dark that led to a wonderful experience with Cristina Popovic as our wedding photographer. I planned the wedding with only 2 weeks notice and Cristina helped so much in so many unexpected ways that everything came off perfectly. Her professional attitude and helping us by calling upon her wedding network of other disciplines was outstanding. I HIGHLY recommend Cristina!

We've worked with Courtney on everything from our wedding to our infant photos to our Christmas card each year. The photos have been inside with lighting, outside with props, outside without props, candids, and photojournalism style. She has a great eye and always understands exactly what we are going for in a shoot. Highly recommend.

My husband and I needed a last minute photographer for our wedding. We had a beach wedding planned in Florida, but had to change the location a few days before the wedding date due to hurricane Irma. Juliana responded to my Thumbtack inquiry right away and was very responsive. She and her husband shot our small wedding and part of our reception. I've only seen a preview of the pictures, but so far, my husband and I are beyond thrilled with the way they turned out! We couldn't be happier with the way things turned out, even if it wasn't originally planned.

We had the opportunity to utilize DJ Stann and his music services at our wedding last month and he did an outstanding job. Stann worked with us to help us create a fantastic atmosphere for our ceremony and reception. He was open to any suggestions and he did a great job of assisting us with our timeline of events to help the evening run smoothly. DJ Stann is versed in all genres of music and would be great choice for weddings, and he would also be a great choice if you ever need a DJ. He set the tone and the great vibes for a wonderful evening, if you get a chance, you should most certainly use him at your event!

DJ Flawed was FANTASTIC!!! Great personality and knows how to command attention in the room. We were very excited to have Brandon DJ our wedding. It was a smaller number of people so it was very important to have someone who could still get people engaged and excited to celebrate! Brandon was great giving us suggestions for the special moments throughout the night that required music selection. We received SO many compliments on the evening and what a wonderful time people had at the reception. Thank you Brandon for helping make our night memorable!!!

"We didn’t really expect a person behind a camera to be so charismatic and engaging. Thomas orchestrated some magical shots we hadn’t thought of and helped capture our simple back yard wedding in a manner that conveys the magic and intimacy of our special moment. Thank you Thomas for being so professional and amazing. We really appreciated all the beautiful shots and how easy you are to work with!”

I can not begin to express my gratitude for Lori. I hired her a year ago to do a gluten free wedding cake and cupcakes for our guests. She invited us to her home for a wonderful cake tasting and it just got better from there. She kept in touch and was helpful with ideas and suggestions whenever I needed her. The day of the wedding she showed up early with a cake and cupcakes that were way more than what I had expected. I was just floored by how amazing everything looked. She even baked us a one year anniversary cake to freeze. In summary: --my husband got a gluten free cake that 1) didn't make him sick, 2) was beautiful, and 3)tasted like regular cake --PLUS we had amazing cupcakes and a BONUS cake --Best of al, everything was cheaper than what I was looking to pay for JUST the wedding cake with 4 other bakers I spoke with -- Icing on the cake ~ Lori was absolutely wonderful to work with. I am very blessed that she was one of the vendors involved in my wedding. THANK YOU!

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.
