We hired Memories in Motion to record our wedding and edit the wedding video. We are extremely happy with the final product. From the crystal clear picture and sound to the care that was taken to include our wedding pictures on the case. We feel that having our wedding video professionally recorded was well worth the money as we would have never gotten the same results if we were to have done it ourselves. The staff at Memories in Motion were very professional and the end product came out great. We couldn't be happier. We'd highly recommend Memories in Motion to anyone that may need an event professionally recorded.

Andrea Mckenzie was our wedding videographer last August, and we couldn't be happier with our results. She did a fabulous job, captured all the special moments I had asked for, and added all the little moments we hadn't even thought of. I love that every wedding anniversary we can re-watch our special day, its something that we shared with family members and friends that could not attend, and something that I can show my children down the road. I was so glad that we ended up going with Andrea, I would ABSOLUTELY recommend her!

Brian provided us with his videography expertise at a live event. He had all of his professional equipment and a great personality as well. Everything we asked for was done in a timely manner. Brian also went above and beyond for us when we need a quick return on some of the edits. Overall, Brian was a pleasure to work with, High recommended for all video shooting/editing needs.

Kolien did everything wonderful, she brought a second person to get some video from to different places, without charging us. Kolien had to deal with the photographer who was less than professional. My daughter and son in law received their DVDs in no time. I would recommend Kolien to anyone that is getting married. We are so glad that we found her to do our daughters wedding.

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.

The whole experience I had with Brass Key Productions was flawless. Consummate professionals, Ashleigh and Sam made the entire experience easy and fun. I never worried about my video looking bad or an important section being left out. My video is personal and beautiful! Everyone who sees it cries (even my dad)! Ashleigh and Sam are creative and innovative in thier shots and composition, I never felt I had to micro manage (a big deal if you knew me). They helped me to capture not only the images of my wedding, but also all of the emotion that we experienced on that day. I highly reccommend them.

Mr. York was very understanding and helpful when it came to different unsuspected events that happened just before my wedding and accommodated for last minute changes. I was unable to use his services due to unforeseen circumstances, however, I would reccomend Mr. Yorks services due to his willingness to help a complete stranger and ability to make immediate accommodations. 10/10

Nic took our engagement pictures in the fall of 2012. From the first click of the shutter, we felt natural and like we could be ourselves. Nic captured our true personalities in our photos without making us do awkward poses or anything that would make us feel uncomfortable. He was constantly talking to us and making us feel like we were just hanging out with a good friend the whole time. Nic was very timely with photo edits. None of his edits are over-done, which SO many photographers seem to get into today. He captures real moments and makes them shine! Engagement, wedding, new baby, holiday…whatever the occasion is, having Nic as your photographer is a guaranteed way to make the day a memory you can keep forever.

We had a great experience with Jakob! He was punctual and professional yet creative and easy-going during our engagement photo-shoot (in a snow-storm, too!). He had a super quick turn-around with showing us the photos to select for editing, and edited them quickly and well! We were super-pleased with our photos and quickly shared them with our friends and family! Excited to have him shoot our wedding!

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.
