If I could give Lucas 10 stars I would. He was so much fun to work with and our video turned out amazing. The whole night was such a blur, so it was nice to watch our video and re-live all the fun we had. When I was initially getting quotes for videographers the prices were $2000 all the way up to $6000 and I was worried we wouldn't be able to afford having someone film our wedding. I found Lucas online, told him what I wanted, and he came up with an extremely reasonable quote for me. I was a little worried about finding someone online, but after watching some trailers on his site and talking with him, I knew I had made the right choice. There are such artistic shots and the whole thing turned out beautifully. My husbands grandmother passed away soon after our wedding and it was such a nice surprise to watch our video and see a great clip of her dancing. Lucas arrived early in the morning to capture me getting ready and stayed almost until the end of the reception and was so professional and made sure to capture all the little details that made our wedding so special. I wish I had another event I could have him film and will definitely keep him in mind for the future as well as refer him!

Russell photography filmed our wedding and we could not have been more pleased. Everyone involved was truly a professional at what they did. They were amazing with unique insight into what would make a memorable photo. The videographers were equally skilled and created a video of our special day that we have have watched many times.

I've covered countless sporting events with Tyler by my side --including the NCAA tournament--spent many hours with him as he took photos and recorded videos, and I can honestly say he's one of the most talented, passionate, hard-working people I've ever met. I've never met someone that lives for their work more than he does. It's his life, and his energy and passion rubs off on everyone he works with. And it helps that's a great photographer and videographer to boot.

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!

I've worked with Kolien on a couple of occasions. She is always on time, reliable, efficient, and creative. I don't think anyone could ask for a better videographer.

Chris did the video for my wedding ceremony and reception. He was very friendly and easy to work with. Every request that I had he captured. The highlight video he made us was fabulous! We also were given the raw footage. He recorded every moment that I wanted and more! My family members who saw the footage thought he did an amazing job too! If you are looking for a videographer for your wedding or event you can trust Chris!

Jeff was amazing to work with from start to finish! I was very impressed with everything that he brought to the table. It was always about what we wanted and Jeff went above and beyond to make sure that we were satisfied. He is so worth every penny! He captured every single special moment of our day and I cannot wait to look back on our videos forever. If you are second guessing on whether to hire a Videographer (like I was), don’t! Hire Jeff and you won’t be sorry :)

Research shows that up to 39% of contractor leads are Internet generated. So, for two years we tried to find someone who could help us create a web video to pre-sell our services. Other videographers we’d talked to didn’t seem to understand the psychology necessary to get our point across. Then in a meeting held at the Better Business Bureau, we heard Daron Powers speak about business videos. His presentation, plus previous career in the reputable Dale Carnegie Systems gave us the added confidence we needed to get our video produced. Daron geared our script, delivery and video production toward getting a prospect to call us. After that, we have to make the sale happen. But as soon as we put the video up on Facebook people began sharing it. The video by itself has clearly elevated our brand as trusted experts.

Nolan was not only an excellent videographer, but he also helped me find the perfect location for the shoot, and helped coach my actress through the scene. He takes high-quality footage and makes himself available for questions or with assistance to collaborate.

    Dillon is always a joy to work with. We were lucky to have him as our lead photographer and videographer this year! Our event is an extremely busy and large black tie fundraiser for The Chicago Spartans which brings over 450 Spartans from around country. Dillon made time to sit down with me before we kicked off to go over the details. He made sure to capture all the important aspects of the event from special guest speakers to surprise performances and sponsor photos. He didn't miss a beat and the quality of the photos are fantastic. He created a highlight video that we use to promote and grow our event each year. Dillon is very talented, easy to work with and professional. We have already booked him again for an upcoming photo shoot for the board. Thank you, Dillon!

    About

    We work directly with the client to make a film directly representing their personalities and characteristics. Each film is a custom production about their love story. Aside from our Hi-definition films we also offer a rare service to film in Super 8mm. Super 8 film evokes memory. It’s a little rough, jumpy and scratchy — just like our recollections of events. Everything looks romantic and ethereal on film.

    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.  
    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
