Working with Eugen was a very easy process. He was committed to working around us and willing to go the extra mile. We ended up getting all photos that we desired and everything turned out as we expected. The photo booth is a must if you have a party crowd at your event!

Jeffrey Pask is one of the most kindest photographers/videographers out there. He is professional and personable at the same time. If you have a creative/fun idea for your project, he will most-likely always be up for it. Jeffrey helped me start my modeling/acting career by shooting my first photoshoot ever. Since it was my first time, I was super nervous. He saw that I was nervous and made me laugh the whole time with his hilarious jokes. That really reduced the tension of it being my first photoshoot, and after that, I decided I wanted him to be my main for all of my photography needs. If it wasn't for Jeff, I wouldn't have such a great portfolio to show agents and casting directors. He is dedicated and will always make sure that you get the results that you want, even if it entails a 9 hour shoot! ;)

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.

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 attended a women's conference where I heard Trish speak from SeekNewHeights.com. Trish's enthusiasm penetrated the entire room. Her passion for the subject showed and I appreciated how she personalized the presentation with an example of her life struggles and success. I am looking forward to having her speak at an event I intend to host.

Fast Forward Videos was the videographer for my daughter's wedding. Her finished product is better than anything I've seen in this genre. She is very creative and avoids the gimmicky, schmaltzy videos you so typically see for weddings. She created a video that captured the both the fun and the importance of this occasion. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for something original.

            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.
