Working with Absolute was great! From our very first meeting to the wedding day itself, they were super super nice and just treated me like a friend. Like a friend would do, they made sure everything went exactly as I wanted. We used Absolute for photography, video, and day of coordination on our wedding day. Kim helped with everything! She made sure everything went according to plan and ran smoothly. We just recently got all of our pictures back and they were amazing! Everyone we worked with was always super nice, always went above and beyond, and was always very professional. I would recommend Absolute to anyone. They are wonderful!

I couldn't be happier with the video project produced by Alyssa !! It captured the vision I had for it and the quality was amazing! It has helped propel my song to a larger audience and represent it artistically in the way I had hoped for.I will definitely hire her team again for my video media needs.

Jonathan helped make my vision come to life. Last year, I got married and had a child, and he was able to take photos and videos I had given him and turned them into the perfect anniversary present for my husband. He finished this project in 2 DAYS! I was in tears when I saw the final video bc it was everything I told him I wanted AND more. I will surely recommend him to anyone who needs photos/video clips/etc put together. Such a pleasure to work with. I am so grateful I found him!

Working with Elias at Pisces Art House was an amazing experience. Not only did he make the creative process comfortable and organic, he inspired me and gave me incredibly valuable constructive criticism that immediately improved my artistry. I have yet to find a more supportive and artist centered management, workshop, or talent group and thats even before mentioning the incredible art direction and beautiful, clean, and professional quality photography, and video product! Simply put, Elias made me feel like a star and a friend, and that's what brings the best out of every artist.

Sherry assessed the situation we needed represented via video media with expert sensibilities. Her personal touch with every clip showed our staff in the best light in both the visual and in content. What impressed me as the business owner was her personal involvement in wanting the best as much as I did. Her work is not just her "work." It was her investment as well as mine.

I hired David to photograph my fraternity's formal. He was very easy working with. No communication issues. At the event, he was very energetic and enthusiastic. Afterwards, he uploaded all the pictures as well as a GoPro video of the event to Dropbox, where everyone was able to download the they wanted pictures FOR FREE. Would highly recommend him to anyone looking for an event photographer. You will receive quality photos and can download the pictures afterwards without any additional costs.

    We've worked with Primitive Media for over a decade at Hillerich & Bradsby Co. on the Louisville Slugger baseball and Bionic Gloves brands. They always produce outstanding work and great value. They are extremely creative, take creative direction well, and always deliver on time or ahead of schedule. Chaz is the consummate professional and aims to please his clients, while assuring that everything is of the greatest quality. He's an excellent visual storyteller and is always on the leading edge of technology, both from a production standpoint as well as how to maximize distribution channels. We highly recommend Primitive Media for video and digital projects.

    It was great to work with Sean. His response was fast and to the point. We had a very unusual setup with our interview, where we conducted the interview via Skype, while he was on location to film it. He shot beautiful footage with great b-roll, all based on our short briefing of the style we wanted to achieve. He was calm, relaxed and focused, made our interviewee feels comfortable and was simply awesome to work with. We will definitely keep him in our team list for future projects! Thank you Sean!

      Austin took the time to come to my location and patiently work with our company until filming was complete. He maintained a positive uplifting attitude and impressed upon me his professional skills until the raw footage was collected on the scene. Later, his editing performance and mastery of his trade left our company with a masterful, quality product we proudly use today. Even after the project was complete, Austin was willing to add and cut our video to make necessary changes as was required. I will certainly utilize his services in the future! I recommend him without hesitation.

        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.
