Truth be told, we weren't originally going to have a wedding video... At the time we thought that those funds would be more useful in other parts of the budget. As a wedding and event planner in my professional life that fact came surprise to everyone I talked to. But after we found out that my grandmothers would not be able to make our destination wedding, the video became a necessity... and thank goodness it did! If I had to do it all again I would have booked Mansour immediately. From the initial consultation, to the in depth interview, he works with you on such a personal level. The film is amazing, I basically cried through the entire thing. Even the music matched us perfectly! If you haven't already booked with Mansour... you should now!

We were so very pleased with Mike's work. He filmed a funeral service for a dear friend with less than 24 hour notice. The film is high quality and captures the event perfectly. He is prompt and professional, and also quick to respond on email and phone. He was unobtrusive at the service. We are grateful to have found Mike to capture this moment for us.

Karim was amazing!!! We were going back and forth on having a videographer at our wedding, and were so pleased we decided to go with Babble films. Karim and Lauren were so easy to work with and captured every moment of the day. The final video was more than we imagined and are so happy we decided to have it done. I would definitely highly recommend Karim, and Babble films for any video projects. They truly were a great addition to the day!

We looked for a videogragher in Boston to film an all-day corporate event at the Marriott. We needed two cameras and significant post production editing. Jeremy had the best looking portfolio and gave a lower estimate. He was easy to work with and accommodating to last minute changes. He was professional, respectful and behaved appropriately for the corporate occasion. Additionally, he showed attention to detail, and did not just set up a camera and walk away. We are very pleased, will be using him again, and would recommend him.

We hired Creative Eye Productions based on the fantastic work they did producing my brother's wedding video. Shannon and Michael are not only high quality professionals, they are high quality people. Every question and concern we had throughout the planning of our wedding was answered with confidence, kindness, and swiftness. The quality of Creative Eye's work is equal to the quality of their character. My family, myself, and my husband were overwhelmed at how beautiful and perfect our wedding video came out - tears were shed. I must admit after seeing the video, I wished I had hired them for the photography as well (my pictures were GREAT, but, I was just so impressed with the quality of the video, I can only imagine how beautiful their photography would have been). What was also appreciated is that we were given the opportunity to view the video in full before they went ahead and provided us the official copies on dvd and flash drive. This proves they care about their clients and want to make sure their satisfaction is guaranteed. It was more than a pleasure to work with Shannon and Michael of Creative Eye Productions and we HIGHLY recommend them to anyone looking for great quality, accommodation, and fair prices.

I hired Jose to travel out of state and film my music video in South Beach, Miami. When he arrived, he was timely and concerned about project details. He was flexible and willing to shoot without a fundamental storyboard as if he had devised one along the way. Jose is dedicated to each project like it is his, he's a true visionary who is attentive to details. I would recommend him to any artist, small or large or budget.

East Coast Content has been filming our corporate training seminars for over 18 months. Each Month they present in a timely manner, film the training portion and quickly turn over a branded video for new and current employees to recap the training. The videos always turn out brilliant and the experience is consistently great while they are on site and while scheduling the next training video. I highly recommend using them for any video needs and I will be utilizing them for all of our needs in the future.

Paul was awesome. He was professional, courteous, fairly priced, and our video came out so perfectly. We are SO GLAD we decided to choose him as our videographer. He did a great job just blending in and not making everyone feel self conscious about being filmed. He captured some great candid moments and even took time to get some wedding venue, reception area, and nearby park shots to add to his footage. The final product was perfect and definitely brings us back to that special day. It is so wonderful to have all of these memories to share and watch back for the rest of our lives.

    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.
