Mark was great! He was flexible prior to the event and worked closely with our nonprofit to provide exactly the service we needed free from extras that could have run up our price. He was friendly and professional and on time the day of the event we would definitely hire him again for an event like this in the futur!! Thanks Mark!

Jacob was a wonderful DJ for our event. We had over 140 guests and he kept everyone dancing the whole night. He did a great job at reading the crowd and playing the appropriate music for the audience! He was patient with our planning and really went above and beyond to accommodate our needs. We would definitely use him again. I highly recommend Jacob for any event!!

It was a pleasure working with PTaufiq Photography to capture moments from our wedding as well as other events surrounding the same. We were planning a week long South Indian wedding in under 6 weeks and were looking for a team that would be flexible with the schedule while matching our needs. PTaufiq Photography was highly recommended by a close friend and wedding vendor. Pervez and I chatted for almost 30 minutes just to get know each other and turned out we had very similar tech backgrounds. I told him how long of coverage I was looking for and was willing to work with me if we went over that time. He mentioned that he would come up with a 5 min video of the wedding and a 30 min video, along with providing us with all the raw footage. He was willing to give us a live stream of the wedding which helped with all friends and family members who were not able to attend our wedding. Anytime I called he was willing to pick up the phone and chat. We really connected with him and his team and they all are like close friends to us now. Engagement Shoot: We decided we wanted to do two photo shoots in Boston and Pervez on photography and Richard on video. Pervez really connected with us as a couple and took amazing shots while we did an Indian outfit and a western outfit. He was always open to any poses and he had some really cool poses himself. He is really talented at making sure the camera angle has perfect symmetry with us and the background. Richard had some really cool video shots he took of us almost like a 180 degree video of us as a couple walking and talking. These guys were so easy to work with on this day and were super flexible. Haldi: Pervez came to our house for the Haldi ceremony also known in south India as the preparations of the groom and bridge for marriage. We had Pervez on photo, Kaelib photo and video, Joe on video and We ended up going way over on time and I didn’t even hear a peep out of Pervez and his team. They were excited and wanted to capture those precious moments. We were able to do a couple photo shoots throughout the event and his team was able to just blend into the crowd. He brought his drone that day to capture some amazing shots of us together for our video. Wedding: Pervez and his team showed up right on time an hour and half before everything was about to start. He got video interviews with my wife and I and we can’t wait to see what we each said about each other. They got some video and photo shoots of both of us getting ready. The day of the event his team was able to take amazing shots of the entire event while blending into the crowd. We didn’t necessarily follow our agenda and his team was able to adapt flawlessly. They worked the entire 6 hours of the wedding and I didn’t hear a single compliant from them. They really delivered VIP service for our wedding. Reception: Nicole showed up an hour before the cocktail hour and took some amazing shots of my wife and I. Joe and Kaelib blended into the crowd to capture those candid video shots of the crowd and all the events that unfolded that evening. They were able to use the drone to capture our special performances that night along with capturing the family interviews of us as a couple. Dele worked really hard throughout the night capturing those photos of family/friends’ shots with bride and groom while dancing was going on. Nicole was super sweet making sure we got away from the crowd and got a chance to enjoy the food. She also made sure we got some time in the photobooth and got some time to enjoy the event with our friends and family on the dance floor. It was a pleasure to work with PTaufiq Photography team that day and they blended into the crowd and were able to capture those precious moments. Post Events shoot: Pervez was so excited from the wedding and engagement shoot and shared a couple amazing shots with us the same day via email. He finished editing over 500 shots from the events about 2 week and provided us the ability to view them online. Keeping in mind his team is busy during the crazy summer weddings season. PTaufiq and his team wanted to see our reaction to a teaser that his team created about 3 weeks from the wedding. Both my wife and I watched our 30 second teaser and ended it with tears. The team was able to capture and present all the highlights from each event and end with an amazing 360 video of our first dance together. The video looked as if it was the greatest week with amazing parties throughout the week, while ending with our most emotional hug during our first dance. If the trailer came out this amazing we can’t wait to see what the final videos will look like. The crew: Kaelib is really good at asking those touching questions to get those emotions of how you feel about your significant other knows how to capture those personal memories on video. Joe is a video guru who can envision a entire movie and knows how to capture those moments in order to stich them all together to tell a great story. Pervez is an absolutely amazing photographer. He is a lighting and proportions geek and makes sure he has perfect lighting in every shot. He has one of the funniest personalities and is really an adult kid. He is very relaxed and knows that wedding are chaotic however he tells you just focus on the two of you and I’ll capture everything. Nicole – we thought we couldn’t meet anyone better than Pervez, however when we got to meet her, we quickly learned she was a huge sweetheart. She was amazing at capturing those special shots before the reception began. Richard – great guy who pays attention to detail when taking video, especially the 180 degree video shots he takes. Dele – did a great job taking photos of our reception, did wonders with the limited lighting on the reception stage photos. Hire PTaufiq Photography !

Cannot say enough about the service and professionalism of Keith and Jeanette from DJ Mystique. The photo booth was the Talk of the Town at our event, and the pictures were really high quality. Everyone had a blast. They really went out of their way to make sure everything was perfect for our party. I strongly recommend booking DJ Mystique if you want your special occasion to be remembered forever. I know ours will. John S.......Bourne Ma.

    Franco was the videographer for our wedding and he did an absolute incredible job. He has a great personality and knows exactly what shots to get without getting in the way of the photographers. He provided us with all the raw footage from our wedding and also an 8 minute edited trailer that he let us preview before sending us the final one. He was even open to suggestions for the trailer (i.e: taking out one part and adding another part that we really liked). I was told some videographers don't like that, but Franco did not mind one bit. He made sure that we were 1000% happy before sending us the final copy. He was very responsive to all inquiries and his professionalism was top of the line. My wife and I are so happy that we had him at our wedding and we have great footage to always remember our special day.

    I am a wedding videographer myself. An emergency came up and I was unable to film for a couple on their wedding day. I found Jay on thumback and hired him to fill in for me. He did a great job. He was reliable, had great communication skills, and followed through and got me exactly what I needed. The video quality was great and exactly what I needed. I hope we can work together again in the future. Thank you, Jay!

    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.
