I hired Mansour to create a "branding" video and montage for our nonprofit (you can see it at GoPVI.ORG). There were only 3 weeks to shoot interviews (in two states), edit and get sponsor approval of final cut before video premiered at an award presentation before 200 moves and shakers in my industry. From the very first call, Mansour inspired confidence with his professionalism, grasp of what was needed, and sense of humor. He put up with some crazy requests on my part with good grace and excellent guidance. In the end, all was completed in time, within budget, and everyone who has seen the video has remarked on how great it is. I hope to have the opportunity to work with Mansour on future videos. Highly recommended!

I am a real estate broker and hired Reel Big Media to create an aerial video and still photos of a property located near the Bay. The video and photos came out great and I couldn't be more pleased. They came out very quickly (same day, in fact) and got me the video and photos within a day. Very professional and I would definitely recommend them. I will use them again in the future!

I had the pleasure of working with Steve on a local political campaign. He was brought on board to do all of the campaign's video work, and he went far beyond the call! Steve was extremely professional, punctual, used his own equipment and delieved a unique perspective in terms of developing the video concepts. He also created all of his own graphics for the video, which were exceptionally well done. Simply put, Steve is the best! I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of his wide ranging skill-set.

I was completely on the fence on having a videographer at all for my wedding so decided to go with a less expensive option. I heard about Creative Eye Productions from a friend who was also planning her wedding that met them at an event at her venue. She said they seemed like great people and had a very reasonable price. I researched them and watched some the videos they had and was satisfied. I am not that techy and didn't care about having Blue Ray/HD or a long video. What I ended up with was a 45 minute video which included my entire ceremony, all the speeches and multiple clips throughout the day; and also an 8 minute shorter version - which is great to show family and friends. I think I spent about $900 which included an extra $100 for travel to where I was, and we were SO happy with the results. We got a great deal and a GREAT video which we love so much. Mike was our videographer and he's great and doesn't ever get in the way, you barely know he's there. I also delt a lot with Shannon who is so nice. They are a smaller company and really care. We have referred Creative Eye Productions to two other couples who had really nice weddings and just didn't want to spend thousands on videography. They were both thrilled as well. Definitely go with this company!

Brian Murdza created an original and creative video sequence of still shots and videos with the material I provided him with a perfect music bed. Upon our initial discussion about what I was looking for, which was a video birthday card for a birthday party, Brian was astute to my needs and made excellent suggestions to enhance the piece. He offered to come to the party and record the guests' birthday wishes which he interspersed into the pictures and videos he was provided with right there at the party and made it ready to show near the end of the party. He was fantastic to work with, reliable, and patient. He happily made revisions to his first sequence, switching out some stock footage for other stock footage and deleting and adding additional material. He was totally professional at the party with a lovely manner. He was there, but understatedly so, which was a perfect fit for the party. He did all the set up to show the video on a TV screen bringing the right connecting wire and made it totally carefree for me, a non-technical person. I highly recommend Brian who more than fulfilled my expectations.

I can not begin to explain how much I enjoyed working with Park Street Weddings. Not only did they provide me an amazing package to work with my budget, but they also delivered above and beyond. My wedding was very detailed and Willianson and his team made sure to capture every single detail without me having to tell them anything. The team itself did an awesome job delivering material to me right away. Their turn around time is also great! You won't have any issues with communication with this team. You can tell Park Street Weddings truly enjoy what they do once you see your wedding trailers, videos, pictures etc. My family & I loved them so much, we're already planning on booking them for our future weddings, events etc. They are definitely worth booking!

I have employed Imageworks on two occasions. the first was to promote our upscale Italian Restaurant, Ristorante Euno in the North End of Boston. The images were so well done, that our online ratings raised from 3.5 to four and a half to five stars!! The professionalism of the photographer and food styling was not only world class for a community minded fare, but also professional digital imagery that allowed us to compete with other restaurants with large p.r. budgets and reputably publicity. Also, Imageworks has produced quality portraits and headshots for the entertainment and professional industry. If you want to look as professional as you are, Imageworks will make that happen for you. Thank you Imageworks.

Jeff was fabulous to work with. He was always early, eager to get set up and professional. Jeff contributed clear direction when needed and did it respectfully as well as thoughtfully. He also did everything with a smile, creating a positive and relaxed atmosphere. He made everyone feel comfortable which added to the excellent quality of the takes. I highly recommend Jeff for any video needs. We can't wait to work with him again.

It was a hot summer day, but the videographer managed to keep me calm and was very patient. He calmly and encouragingly re-shot segments in order for me to get my comments to come out just right. Much more was shot than was actually needed, so that there was lots of footage to draw from for use in compiling the final product. The result was a very professional video promoting my book Quoting Matilda, a book about suffragist Matilda Joslyn Gage.

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.
