This review is from the mother of the bride's perspective. I first noticed his attention to details...things like noticing the entrance of the couple and what was in the background. He has a good eye for what makes a stand out photo. He is personable and thinks about most everything concerning your pictures and a smooth running wedding. He even helps keep your wedding on cue. He is an excellent estimator of the time it takes to get the photos you would like. He is fast, efficient and even witty in handling the big family photos! You can tell he has much experience with this. You feel in good hands with Peter! And most importantly...you have beautiful pictures which capture the memories of your special day!! Thanks Peter for the all the special photo's we will cherish forever!!

Simply stated --- Anna is the BEST!!! Whether she is filming breathtaking landscapes, magnificent mega-creatures at sea, the local kids' hockey game, or a beautiful wedding, her videography is nothing short of a masterpiece. Anna is easy to work with and always puts 110% of herself into her work. I have seen many of her videos ---- they are professionally done and Anna's artistic flair is a real bonus. My family has used her to shoot two of my daughters' weddings. We couldn't be happier with her work and hope that she is available when my youngest two daughters are planning their wedding also.

I've had several experiences with TNT Photography and Video and all of them fantastic. Rich Sorensen's videography is outstanding. He has done several jobs in the sport of equestrian show jumping, from slow motion demo to a fantastic split screen of two different rides on the same course. The result has always been high quality, good color and clarity without wind noise. Rich maintains a high standard of quality and service, a true professional.

We hired Pixsmotion as our videographer for our wedding day and we could not be happier that we did. Pete did a wonderful job capturing the day (despite the rainy drizzle!). We cannot thank him enough for his work. We have already watched the edited videos several times and have received so many compliments from family and friends. Pete was professional, responsive and so easy to work with. He was actually probably one of our favorite vendors! We feel so lucky to have stumbled upon Pixsmotion. We would recommend Pixsmotion in a heartbeat to any bride and groom looking for an affordable videographer who will not disappoint!

JIB Media did the video for our wedding. Ryan captured the day exquisitely. She set up early and captured the growing mood as guests arrived. During the event, she unobtrusively taped the ceremony, with a great eye for the details. We could tell guests enjoyed her as the video of the reception was a blast. The finished product was something we treasure, not only because it's our wedding, but also because it is a work of art!

I find the most irritating qualities that DJs often bring with them is mistakenly feeling that they -- not the music -- is the entertainment. DJ-BrianC kept our party rolling with limited breaks and made sure the music, be it pre-recorded or karaoke, was center stage. He never stopped the party, demanded to be in the spotlight or request everyone's attention. Set-up was quick and easy, as was tear-down. I highly recommend his professional service.

We hired Johnny after meeting with him and corresponding back and forth! He has always been quick to respond to any emails or questions. He even went out of his way to purchase an additional camera to accommodate an idea we had for our wedding! Our wedding isn't until October 2018, but we look forward to working with Johnny, as he has been nothing but professional so far!

Working with On A Mission Media was a pleasure. Darby is professional, pleasant to work with, and produces a fantastic finished product. I only had to communicate our vision once to Darby and he immediately understood. The amount of back & forth with edits was minimal, and the video turned out fabulous. I highly recommend working with On a Mission Media for all your videography needs.

    We are SO happy that we met Bill! Our wedding memories would not be the same without him. Not only is he a master of his craft, but he's also personable, and professional. My husband and I had a few ideas for our wedding video. Bill was easy to work with to make those ideas come to life. Not only that, but his creativity helped bring about new ideas that we had never thought of! If you are looking for a videographer for your event (wedding or anything else) my husband (and our family) can assure you that you have found him!!

      About

      For your special day, let us capture memories that you will be enjoying in the coming years. As a videographer, you are the one who's responsible in capturing the special moments that seems to pass so quickly. Because of that, we guarantee that these special moments will be captured and archived in a thoughtful and creative wedding movie on a DVD for you to enjoy. A lot of our couples have commented that they were so busy during their wedding, and the movie showed them what they missed. We will film and produce with music a creative and professional memory of your special day on a DVD. You can have us for 6 to 8 hours during the day itself to film pre-wedding activities, ceremony and of course, the reception. Your video will be containing retrospective (childhood to dating) and honeymoon photos (you will provide these) of the couple and wedding party highlights. All of these will be delivered to you on 3 DVDs.

      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.
