I would rate 95 Images 5 stars.. I am so grateful to Thumbtack for recommending them to me.. here's why.. I used 95 Images to film a video of me using an exercise apparatus that I designed.. Ron & Miles showed at my door on time.. knew what I wanted better than I did..& made me feel at ease while advertising my product.. they taught me how to "sell" my idea ! It seemed that Ron & Miles knew exactly how to "coach "me... these guys were AMAZING ! Ron makes you feel like family, such a joy to work with .. This team has talent, innovation, creativity, warmth, professionalism, & personality plus! It just so happened that Ron exercises as well, & gave me a lot of great tips. The finished product left me speechless ! I consider myself a "tough customer".. hard to please & meticulous.. but the finished video exceeded my expectations .. all done in a timely manner, with far more my imagination than I had hoped for ! & the rates were cheaper than the others that I considered. These guys are INCREDIBLE !! If you want anything done as far as pictures or videos..do yourself a favor... CALL 95 IMAGES !!

Highly demanded across the region, Mark's Film/Video Direction and Production lead on creative collabs are the best known. The team at House Studios shot my first music video under his direction and I was highly pleased with their mainstream quality as I share our video worldwide.

Ilya was great. He was able to film our event last minute but came prepared as we had booked months in advance. He engaged with our guests to get the best pictures and film and the finished product is more than we could have hoped for. Will definitely use him and Dynamic Reel again in the future.

We hired Pretty Elektrik to film our entire wedding ceremony, with about 10 days notice. They far exceeded our expectations, particularly where they did the job at a very reasonable price. Everyone was professional and friendly. They showed up early. They delivered the video within a few days. They prepared beforehand to make sure they could capture everything we wanted (because one part of our ceremony involved people standing up, they even set up a second stationary camera and then went upstairs for a better view of our guests in that moment). The quality of the final video is quite high. They truly went above and beyond and we're thrilled we hired them!!

I don't know where to start. Everything was GREAT. He took my project on extremely short notice. I contacted him about creating a highlight reel for my son's football season. He walked me through every step as far as his equipment, quality of film etc and explained everything in GREAT detail... This guy really knows his craft. MJRvisuals is a top notch company, and my family and I have decided to contract them for my sons next 4 football games. The most rewarding part, was when my son saw the DRAFT of what Malcholm had created. Signed...one very satisfied, proud DAD. THANKS MJRvisuals!!!!!!! See you Saturday!!!!!!! DonB

Jason could not have been more accommodating and professional. I had him film a presentation I gave and he showed up with patience and flexibility of the space, sound, audience, etc. I was impressed that he showed up dressed so sharply with a tie and hat. I didn't expect this and was proud to have such a professional videographer who really valued the venue and overall experience. The people who invited me to speak could see the level of quality in choosing a good person to film the event. The quality of the final product was fantastic and he even made a few edits after I viewed it to add in the slide images in addition to me in front of camera. All communication was thorough and made me feel that he definitely understood my vision. I will be using him again in the future.

Project Inspire requested the services of LNJ Designs Photo for an annual fundraising event. We hoped to capture photos of our performers, audience, speakers, and event paraphernalia in an effort to have beautiful content to show stakeholders on our website, social media, and promotional materials. Leslie did an amazing job, blending into the crowd, making people feel extremely comfortable with her as a photographer, and capturing the shots we requested. She was extremely professional, and I would highly recommend her!

My wife and I were so fortunate to have found Adam during our search for a wedding videographer. It is easy to assume that the big companies would be the best, but Adam produced not one but two fantastic videos of our wedding, capturing the complete experience while remaining unobtrusive. Have no fear booking independent! He was able to coordinate seamlessly with our photographers and other vendors to ensure everyone got the shots they wanted. Through the entire process Adam was responsive and knowledgeable. It was an absolute pleasure working with Adam and would recommend his services to any engaged couple. P.S. He hooked me up to a wireless mic for the ceremony which captured the dialog beautifully. Most wedding videos I've seen have echo-y sound and people shuffling around since the microphone is on the camera in the back.

Brandon's an excellent editor, whose commitment to quality is evident in his deliverables. While editing is something that can be taught, a great editor is someone who is born with the ability to finesse the right shot selection for the story, the right cut for seamless pacing and the right combination of useful film with artistry to create evocative, sensory storytelling. Brandon brings it all to his work. I highly recommend Brandon as an editor and valuable asset to any post-production project.

I hired Scene Clearly Films to film my boyfriend's surprise 40th birthday party. Darryl and his team were a joy to work with! They were incredibly professional and timely. I was quite busy during the party planning process, as well afterward, but Darryl was very accommodating. He made some very helpful recommendations, including having two videographers onsite - which allowed them to capture the party from multiple angles. The end product was gorgeous and seamless. I also needed them to create a promotional video for my business, and they did a fantastic job. I will definitely be hiring this company again for future work, especially as I get started in rolling out my new event planning business! Thanks Darryl and team for capturing so many memories!

Great Wedding Videographers. Before the Wedding day Phil communicated with me and stayed up to date with our planning. Phil and his crew arrived early and began filming footage an hour before the wedding started which they don't charge for. Keepsake Sound Video produced a wonderful DVD that we will have to cherish for many years to come. They not only gave us a feature film but a beautiful highlight video with great music overlay and a photo slide show with music overlay which we were not even expecting. Great quality and great Production. Fast turnaround (2 weeks) and Features that anyone would want to have for their Wedding. I'm so happy that we hired Keepsake Sound Video!

Greggo Lee Films has been my go to cinematographer for my international service trips. I travel with 15-20 kids each year to Belize and the owner of Greggo Lee Films personally attends this trip and documents the entire journey. His level of professionalism, energetic interaction with the kids and locals, and flexibility during the trip were unmatched. I was highly impressed by the photos and video he created. There were many memories that I had no idea were captured until I received the final product. His eye for a great shot is impeccable. I would highly recommend using this company for any event domestic or international.

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.

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.  

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. 

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
