Aleks was wonderful to work with, from consultation to shooting to editing and providing the images in a timely manner. She knew exactly how to capture what I was going for, had a slew of poses ready to go when I walked in the door, knew the best locations to shoot outside, and was so nice, friendly and welcoming the whole time. I don't enjoy being in front of the camera, but she made me feel comfortable from the first shot to the last. Her editing after the shoot was perfect, and I got my images within a week! I will be booking her again very soon!

I hired Janis to take photographs of my mom's home before we sold it when she moved to a Menory Care facility. It was important for me to be able to have a book of photos to show mom when she said she couldn't remember her house. We've poured over it multiple times and mom does always find something that rings a bell. Janis took the project on with a marvelous flair. She brought in extra lights and equipment to do the showplace justice. She photographed over several sessions and used different camera lenses to best show different shots within the house. She would take phot blasts and get wonderful depth by combining and editing. In addition, Janis helped edit the book that resulted and we sat down together to produce the book. Picking out background colors, which photos to use and the order and size of them is not easy. But for Janis it was and I'm grateful we found her. That book of memories is precious for our family.

Working with Jesse was so easy! We had a deadline to meet for our video shoot as well as one day to film 5 shorts. He arrived very prepared and organized, which made the filming flow seamlessly from one location to the other. He even beat our production deadline! I was very pleased with the overall quality and we more than exceeded our goals! Creative angles and exceptional lighting were some of my favorite qualities. I would highly recommend. Thanks for putting your heart into our project! It really made a difference.

I've been working in the entertainment industry for a few years now and I've gotten to know the types of filmmakers you love to work with and those you would rather avoid. When Joshua offered to shoot our wedding I noticed right off the bat that he was a very kind and motivated artist; Very genuine and polite. I mention his personality because, trust me, it takes a load off your back to be able to completely trust the people working in your wedding. I was really impressed by Joshua's skill and professionalism. We hardly knew he was there and the shots turned out exactly the way we wanted! He edited a highlights video very quickly and my wife fights back tears every time she watches it. I highly recommend his services!

I cannot recommend Minor Media Works enough! I used Minor Media Works to film my wedding and provide a four minute highlight video. Sean, the owner, and his assistant did an amazing job capturing the video the day of and editing the highlight video. My husband and I are so extremely happy with the way the video turned out and all our friends and family are super impressed. When we contacted Sean, we sent an example of a very professional wedding video that we liked the look of and Sean was able to provide the same high quality look while adapting to our preferences and venue. If you're on the fence about spending the money on a videographer, it is well worth the money, and does a much better job of capturing the details and highlights of the day than photos. Sean went above and beyond to make our wedding video special, and even made additional edits to the highlight video after putting it together. Honestly, this was the best money we spent on our wedding!

Keaton has a great eye. He can make the most boring event look like a magical one. His editing skills are where his art comes to life. He does all of the work himself, so the cost is lower than what you might pay for something of equal quality.

Professional Amateur Productions is a phenomenal company. They provide excellent product and are extremely time effective in delivery. At the time I was co-owner of No Budget Studio LLC an independent television/film production studio in downtown KS when I first met Savannah Rodgers of Professional Amateur Productions. They were filming a short and need to rent out our studio. Thereafter, we reached out to her to do a commercial for our studio and the results were awesome. I HIGHLY recommend if you are need of any production work, to reach out to Professional Amateur Productions for all your needs, you will not be disappointed. They are professional, efficient and provide excellent quality work. Yolanda "Poetic Floww" Jackson Poetic Flow Productions LLC former co-owner of No Budget Studio LLC

    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.
