Amber was great! She was on time and engaged with the event. We had a rehersal dinner on March 11th and when I met Amber it was as though I knew her. When we received the pictures I was thoroughly amazed. She recreated the event in pictures picking up the "spirit" of the event. I would highly recommend Amber for your photography needs. We will be visiting New Orleans frequently and I plan on utilizing Amber Photography again!!!!

Donovan Calfee was really great to work with. I was very pleased with the set up of the lights and the photobooth. Everything was timed perfectly and he was very professional. The customer service that we received from him and his photobooth attendant was amazing. I was very impressed with how helpful the attendant was, especially with helping the children when using the photobooth. I would definitely recommend On Fire Entertainment for any event or occasion. The services were excellent and everything was perfect; they were definitely part of the reason why our event was so successful.

AN EXCEPTIONAL FIND! We did an extremely comprehensive search for videographers and Travis unquestionably stood out above the rest. The project was completed yesterday and there are not enough words to express how fortunate we feel to have found him. He is exceptional. We recommend him highly! He has incredible gifts beyond his outstanding technical abilities that include a very sensitive artistic eye, complete professionalism, attention to detail, phenomenal work ethic and complete presence from the planning through to the end of a long day of shooting. It is not often that you find someone who is so skilled, so very talented, and also who is so kind and warm and supportive with putting the subject at ease who he was filming. He gave us his whole self and we are all so grateful!! Our whole team is buzzing with joy today because of the very wonderful Travis Henry.

Nathan Willis is a ridiculously talented videographer and was the best wedding vendor I had, no questions asked. As an engineering PhD student, I know what it is to do serious research. I researched TONS of videographers for our wedding, not only in Houston but in Dallas, Austin, San Antonio, and surrounding cities. I considered video quality, costs (including hidden fees, which Nathan Willis Wedding Films have NONE), equipment, location, time frames, reviews, the list goes on and on. With this in mind, I can confidently tell you that Nathan and Alee, hands down, are the best in the business. They were friendly, quick to reply to my inquiries, and have a cost that's very reasonable for the phenomenal services they provide. During my search I noticed a trend among videographers... Either they were cheap and produced rinky dinky, cringe videos or they charged an outrageous cost (upwards of $8000? Really?) for videos that weren't anywhere NEAR as good as Nathan Willis Wedding Films. At our wedding, Nathan and Alee were very unobtrusive. They worked seamlessly and without any disturbance to the day's schedule. Yet, somehow they managed to capture all of the important moments and so much more. When my husband and I watched our wedding videos, we were very surprised with all the footage they caught. There were tons of scenes where we didn't know they were filming, but we are so glad they were! Nathan Willis Wedding Films even met all of our nitpicky, overly analytical requests about song choice, order of the video, the romantic, dreamy feel I wanted, etc. They even sent us a cute custom package. Very professional. Nathan and Alee, you've gone above and beyond our expectations! All of our friends and family LOVE the video and so many have told me they've never seen a video more beautiful. Thank you for giving us something so special to remember our day by. And thank you for being (by far) the easiest vendor we worked with for our wedding. No kidding! I'm so glad we found you!! You are seriously the BEST at what you do! Brides are lucky to have you!!

      Patrick Rulh was amazing to work with! He was upfront and honest about his expectations, and truly listened and responded to our requests. He was on time to every meeting and the event, and worked his tail off. He takes the utmost pride in creating a high quality end product. We had a wedding video done by him, and it will be something that we will all cherish the rest of our lives.

I make sure that every moment of your wedding is as stress-free, comfortable and memorable for everyone. For instance, I make sure that the mother of the bride is present for the cake cutting. My main goal of the day/night is that you and your family have a wonderful time and create lasting 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.  
      Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
