Eugen and his team were great to work with. Very professional and on top of things. Would highly recommend him to anyone. He photographed and filmed our daughter's wedding and we couldn't have asked for a better photographer. We had him for like 9 hours and 3 locations that day and words just can't describe how happy we are to have chosen him. He was on time and kept to our scheduled time frame for each location. If you are looking for the best, call Sublime Moments Photography. You won't regret it.

I worked with Carey. She was very professional and courteous. After her initial introduction and a few minutes filming me one on one, I completely forgot her team was even there. They did not get in the way of the wedding at all and she worked well with my photographer as well. I am so glad I decided to use a videographer because there were so many aspects of the day that I just could not see happening. I'm looking forward to watching the finished video . I will get to relive that beautiful day all over again .

Our budget precluded us from traveling out-of-state to shoot on location so I hired Craig Films. My client was on the set so I needed someone that I could trust to deliver skill, speed, direction, and good old fashioned friendliness. Craig Films exceeded everyone's expectations on a very tight deadline. I couldn't have chosen a better production company to make me look good.

Qvision worked with us to develop a plan for a video to capture a complex community development process. Quenton gave great advice as we prepared in advance, he and his team were professional and efficient during the filming, and he produced a great first cut that really helped us see what the piece could accomplish. As a first effort for our organization, we asked for a lot in terms of edits, adding new content and data, and more. Quenton was responsive to these requests and our company benefited from the process and from having the video on our website. I would highly recommend Qvision to another nonprofit or public sector group. The process will go well and the product is amazingly professional.

Andrea recently filmed my wedding. She was very easy going and was very professional. The guests at my wedding even commented on nice she was. I haven't got my video yet but based on some of the summaries she sent me I'm very confident that it will be great. She was fun and very friendly. I had an issue with the photo booth, from another comoany, and they didn't have a back up camera. Well Andrea was kind enough to let them try her camera that she had with her. Unfortunately it didn't work but it was the fact that she wanted everything to go perfect for us and she tried when she didn't have too. I cannot say enough about how pleased we are that we choose her. Thank you very much Andrea, you were great and we will definitely recommend you to someone else. Thanks again.

Josh was truly a blessing to work with. He is very experienced in video production--it shows in his filming on location and in his post-production work. Josh was great at reading us during production; when we weren't sure about a take, he was quick to respond and was flexible with retakes and changes. He's a great communicator-- before, during and after the shoot. Josh added a special touch of creative expertise to our ideas and he has a pleasant and helpful demeanor. Every one in our company was extremely pleased with the final video. Monkey Shavers is very highly recommended, you can't get a better guy than Josh to work with.

    Matt is a very energetic guy who is very organized and punctual and on time. I wanted to teach my siblings filmmaking which is not something that filmmakers do usually Matt was humble and kind enough to accept my offer. He told me that he will email me a lesson plan in two days I wasn’t sure that he will do so in two days as the job I asked for is time consuming and is not something profitable but he did email me a fantastic lesson plan I liked it and accepted it and then Matt showed up on time for the lesson and taught them and they enjoyed the learning process.

    In today's wedding world, videography has become so formulaic. Every time I watch a friend's wedding trailer/video it seems like the same shots, same songs, with different people in the gown and tux. Paris Films provided the exact opposite experience for my wife and I. For one, I know for a fact that they were/are on the forefront of the "wedding film" movement that transitioned from the "wedding video" era of the eary 2000's. To say the experience was personal was an understatement. They interviewed us, and our families, on several different occasions, learning literally everything about us, just like a movie director does research before creating a film. They were a seemless presence at the wedding, barely seen, but always filming key moments that we as the bride and groom never got to see with our own eyes. The night only truly became visible to us after Paris Films showed us our trailer and eventually the final product. I will never forget the time I watched the trailer for the first time. Paris knew us so well that he didn't even have to ask to pick the perfect music that brought out the essence of our feelings for each other and the magic of the night. I would strongly recommend Paris Films to literally anyone who is having a wedding reception. They will find the perfect way to capture the day from sun up to sun down!

    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.
