Dan did an AMAZING job with our wedding videography. He added in elements that were very unique including different camera angles and "fly on the wall" moments. Dan is very easy to work with as well when it comes to editing the video, he asks you every step of the way what you want to change, keep..etc. I would highly recommend him to anyone wanting to capture their special day, you will have a fantastic video for you to look back on and treasure forever! Here's a link to my short video he did: https://vimeo.com/181861309

Rodney filmed our wedding on 11/19/16 and did an amazing job! We hired him last minute and it is a decision we are so incredibly happy we made. In under a week, he had our highlight video done. He went wayyyy above and beyond our expectations. Now we can relive our wedding over and over again through the years through Rodney's amazing video! Not only was his photography skills amazing, he Rodney also has a great personality and is so easy to get along with... which is so very important when looking for someone who will be filming you for 8+ hours on your special day. I met Rodney for the first time on the day of our wedding and immediately felt like he was someone familiar to me. We 100% recommend him to anyone needing a videographer!

At first I wasn’t sure about hiring 5th Media since they did so many other styles besides weddings. We took the chance and Eugene and his crew proved that their quality of work is amazing across the board! Weddings or commercials the company will make sure your needs are met. My husband and I were definitely happy with our wedding video!

While they were courteous during the day of the wedding, we unfortunately never received our digital files of the photos taken. We have called 15 times and emailed dozes of times, but cannot seem to get anyone to send them to us. They either ignore our pleas or say "they're working on sending them." Unfortunately I cannot recommend them, what's the point of having a photo booth if you never get to see the pictures people took during your wedding?

Verified review

Falcon Film Studios provided the DJ and photography for my wedding. The photographer ensured we got all the photos we wanted including a mid evening sunset set. He was polite and professional and, of course, the photos turned out great. The DJ that was provided was integral in the timeline of the night, ensuring everything happened on time, from the seating of guests at the ceremony to the last dance. Speaking of dance, the DJ did an excellent job of keeping the dance floor full while also following our pre-set lists of must-play and do-not-play.

Chris did an outstanding job capturing our special day in video. He didn't just stand there and hold a camera, he went into great detail and you can tell he enjoys his work when your final product is delivered. His editing skills are extremely good and flows incredibly well with the storylines of the day. For those of you looking for high quality videography for your wedding, I highly recommend Chris.

    Stephanie was absolutely incredible to work with. She knew exactly what she was doing and moved us through our day so smoothly, keeping us both calm in the process. I honestly can’t imagine going through this experience without her guidance and expertise. Stephanie is an exceptionally talented, professional, creative photographer that never lost sight of what we envisioned as our perfect wedding day. I would work with Stephanie again in a heartbeat. She was really amazing, and I’ve already talked two of my dearest friends into using her for their weddings!”

    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.
