Our realtor hired Karim & company to do a complete edited video of my home. It was to include interior & exterior images captured by his drone and his other cameras; incorporate hi def photos from a previous pro photo shoot, and old 'live' footage I provided to showcase my audio studio. I liked Karim right off the bat and was very confident of results just watching him work - often rehearsing moving shots before taking and then doing multiple takes until satisfied with results. The result exceeded my expectations! His editing choices were spot on, transitions smooth and not flashy, and there was good continuity start to finish telling a nice video story. He and his assistant were here 4 hours, were very communicative, cheerful, professional & open to ideas and delivered a 3.5 minute finished edited video.. in one week! As an audio recording & mastering guy am very picky & detail oriented. Karim is the same way. I could not be more pleased.

My dearest friend retired this year and Mike did a fabulous job capturing all of the special moments at her party. The video was great! Every person, smile and tear drop was captured and the audio was crystal clear. My friend has watched the video several times and is so happy that she didn't miss a moment!

Took a rough audio track of different interviews that were cut together and adjusted their timing and placed all b-roll to cover the cuts to create a smooth mini-documentary for a non-profit organization.

CCI helped us pull off our show by taking the reins and making it happen. They had the video and audio equipment we needed, and the advice we didn't even know we needed. Hats off to Alex for coming through.

I recently threw a surprise 30th birthday party for my wife and decided to make a video montage as part of the main feature that I would play at the event. I had an idea of what I wanted to do, but wasn't sure how to pull everything together for a final product. Boston Science Communications, i.e. Gino, was amazing. Not only did he make the process fun, but he used his 20+ years of industry experience to help guide me through the process. He was very affordable, flexible in terms of scheduling, and the final product was fantastic. Gino was very professional, up to date within the industry, and he has tremendous customer service and client focus objectives that really make you feel comfortable throughout the process. Our project took about two days to complete (roughly 10 hours) and he work around my schedule. If you're looking for someone who is affordable, has +20 years experience, state-of-the-art equipment, and who will deliver then Boston Science Communications is the place for you! I plan to use this company again for future projects!

    I have collaborated on songs and music videos with Sean for the past two years and can honestly say I have never worked with someone so passionate, hard-working, and creative. He works tirelessly to get the best audio recording and best mix for your song, and the best shots for your music video. He genuinely cares about helping others achieve their goals musically and playing a key role in helping someone create the best end result for their song. He is very open and direct in communicating with others and really wants to make your vision come to life. I would absolutely recommend working with Sean if you want quality work done right!

    John's studio was neat and organized, and he was always ready to go when we showed up. John is really friendly and easy to work with. He offered some good insight into how to tighten up my arrangements, and really helped my guitarist refine his solo in one of my songs. He has a very relaxed but professional manner, and seemed enthused about the music. I loved how he mapped out the steps, and let us decide which directions we wanted to take. His final mixes sound incredible. So much better then our previous recordings in other studios. I will definitely be working with John Eye in the future when we have more songs to record.

    Davideo Company does an outstanding job in creating and capturing the key points of the organization (whether those points were well articulated to Davideo Company or were somewhat vague at the onset). Their editing and their production are terrific, and it is a pleasure to work with them. Sincerely, Miriam Kimball Mission Awareness & Philanthropy MetroWest YMCA

    Just because you own a pencil doesn't mean you're an artist. All the latest gear and software won't make someone a good editor. Production of audio, video, or web design is about creativity as must as technicality. I've worked hard to develop both in the years I've been in the business.

    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.
