Was in New Orleans for vacation with my girlfriend and was planning to propose while there. I was looking for a photographer to capture the moment and I knew it was going to be difficult to try to meet somewhere I had never been, especially since we had a very undetermined schedule. I contacted Nick the night before and he was very helpful with planning when and where! I can’t believe how flexible he was! I told him I wasn’t sure what time of day it would happen, and he just said he’d be able to meet at our decided spot within 15-20 minutes of me telling him. He made the experience so easy and stressful-free! Would definitely recommend to anyone!

Travis is professional, punctual and easy to work with! Travis dove right in with our team at the conference and really helped us to make the most of our time with him. Not only has he produced great quality, he even helped us to "sell" some of the interviews we wanted to get done. Very responsive to all communication and his level of organization made it very easy to coordinate and work together. Would HIGHLY recommend working with Travis for any of your video/editing needs.

I have worked with many other production companies in the past and I can say that none have impressed me as much as Beverly Boy Productions. They make sure that everything we needed we had, they answered all our questions, took care of all our concerns, and delivered an amazing video that does not even compare to the past products we have gotten from other companies. If you want the best you have to go for the best. Thanks Beverly boy for being the best!!

We had never done a video project of this scale before and the folks at Faithful Dog made everything clear. I always felt like I understood the process and what would happen next. The video team was punctual and professional, which was important because this was a national client meeting. All of our interview subjects felt comfortable and every piece looked great. After the shoot, there were no surprises and everything took place on budget ad on time. We couldn't be happier.

    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.

    About

    Being a third generation photographer and growing up in an environment of self starters I know what it means to work hard and be professional. Working in corporate events for 8 years has taught me how to handle high stress situations and small deadlines. I constantly reinvest in technology. This means that money is not wasted on old, or broken workflows, and allows quick turnarounds. I have worked over 200 conventions and events like the super bowl, x-games, and fortune 500 company retreats.

    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.
