Daniel did our wedding videography. I was absolutely amazed by the quality of the video! It was Incredibly professional job for a reasonable price. My wife and I were blown away with Dan's footage and editing. He was also very easy to work with and responsive to emails throughout the process. Thanks so much for an incredible job!

I would definitely recommend Lighting With Love to anyone looking for a professional, high quality wedding photographer! Months before the "big day" Lynette was on the phone with me answering all of my questions, even those not related to photography. When wedding day came I was so grateful for Lynette's professionalism - she knew what she was doing and created a stress-free environment for me, the wedding party, and my family. Everyone raved about her afterwords. And the best part? Receiving the email that our photos were done a few weeks later! The photographs captured the day beautifully from the traditional bride/groom dip (this felt really awkward and embarrassing but the photo turned out amazing!) to candid shots of family and friends - she even caught the maid of honor and best and best man doing the Dab when they were introduced at the ceremony.

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!

Wale was so amazing through the entire process. I looked over several options and his work stood out among the rest. When I spoke to him he was so professional and accommodating of my OCD needs. I hired him to film my wedding and not long after my father ended up in the hospital. Come wedding day, the ceremony was moved to the hospital so my dad could be a part of it. Wale never hesitated to adjust all plans to make the day without added stress. Through everything, the ceremony and reception his crew was amazing at capturing every moment without even realizing they were there. I can't thank him enough for helping to make my special day perfect. Thank you Adex Film Production! - MSK

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!

We hired Walton Specialty video to film our wedding this past October. Both Bill and his wife Trevay were friendly, professional, creative and got the job done at an affordable price! Bill was very easy to work with, remained flexible and was a great communicator throughout our planning. We planned our Detroit wedding from Charleston SC and even had to evacuate for a hurricane just a week before the wedding! Bill laid out his idea for the day’s activities and it even included a pre-wedding interview where myself and husband to be described the day we met and how we got engaged. It was so sweet! I didn’t have anything like that in mind! As the bridal party was getting ready at the hotel, Bill arrived to set up his cameras for the ceremony and found that he the church was still locked. He called to let me know but I couldn’t get a hold of the key until a short time before the ceremony. Despite being locked out, Bill and Trevay were able to set up all the cameras and microphones just before our guests arrived! Of course he and his wife filmed the entire ceremony and the reception at a separate location as well. They also filmed the church and surrounding historical area and used it as the intro to the video- it was beautifully done! They also filmed our family and friends well wishes for the bride and groom which was a great way to wrap up the video! To top it all off, the package we received had leather bound case for our video and also a few extra discs for our family and friends! All in all, Bill and Trevay did a wonderful job capturing our big day and we could not be happier with our video!!! We look forward to watching our wedding day video on every anniversary to come!!!

My wife and I hired him to do the photography for our wedding. He was very professional and friendly (which really helps when it comes to comfort levels, especially with the little flower girls). He kept in touch with us. He came to the rehearsal to be prepared for what we had planned so that the wedding day was smooth and went as expected. We gave him a list of a few shots that we really wanted and he got them all as well as a few that were unique. We had our wedding at Crystal Gardens of Southgate, MI. The place is beautiful and he captured that in our pictures. We had the room with the outside patio and gazebo and he took advantage of all of the great scenery the place had to offer. Our wedding and reception was from 4:30 to 11:30 and he was there for majority of the night. He snapped away until the battery ran out, which was after all of the events. He took pictures of our guests, which I didn't expect, but was happy about; The day went by so fast I didn't get a chance to see everybody and some people came from out of state to attend and it has been a while since I've last seen them. I was very impressed with his work. The battery running out was probably the only thing that went wrong, and that was after about 700 pictures were taken, so nothing was missed. I would highly recommend hiring him if you are looking for a someone that knows what they are doing with a camera. A wedding day is not something you want a rookie doing.

Excellent photographer! We hired them for our engagement shoot and civil wedding. Highly recommend Tyquan and his team! Tyquan did our engagement shoot and did a phenomenal job, EXCELLENT photos and we were super happy with everything! He helped us with all the poses, where to shoot, angles, etc. and was very fun to work with. We thought he did an awesome job and were super impressed. He was really laid back and let us checkout the photos as he shot them. Went the extra mile and beyond with everything and definitely made everything very light, easy and fun! The photos during the civil ceremony were incredible as well! Overall they did an awesome job, were very responsive and always available for questions (we usually text, and Tyquan gets back to us very fast), great group of guys, all super nice and easy to work with throughout. Definitely keeping these guys as my #1 pick for what comes next for us (baby showers? other events!). Overall my wife and I were and are super happy with -everything-! Again, amazing photos, fun to work with, great group of guys and they definitely know their stuff! Thanks again for everything and keep up the great work!

We hired Jay to do the video for our daughter's outdoor wedding. He consulted with me prior to the event to clarify what we were looking for and to discuss details of the filming. He arrived early the day of the wedding to set up equipment well before the start of the ceremony. The cameras were not obtrusive at all. The final video turned out beautifully. It truly captured the sentiment of the wedding. We were extremely pleased with the service Jay provided and would highly recommend him to others.

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.

How much does it cost for a photographer for a wedding?

Finding the right wedding photographer can make a big difference for your ceremony. Nationally, the average wedding photographer’s price ranges from $800 to $1,000, but costs can be much higher in areas like Chicago, New York or Los Angeles where some couples spend $2,000 to $5,000 or more for the photographer they want. Factors that can affect your wedding photographer prices include the photographer’s reputation and experience. Heavy hitters can command top rates, especially during wedding-season weekends. Day of the week also affects your cost. You may get a $200 discount on wedding photographer prices if you get married on a Friday in November rather than a Saturday in June. Time onsite is also an important cost factor. Hiring a photographer to snap photos from the moment you wake up until after last call at the reception is going to cost more than five hours of pictures during the day. Multiple photographers, special lighting, and videography will also increase your costs. Ultimately you want to find someone who has a style you love and can provide the number of edited shots you want for a price you can handle. Learn more about hiring a wedding photographer.

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. 

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
