Based on a referral, my fiance', Gary, and I hired Ryan Jakubowski for our wedding photographer. From the initial contact with Ryan, through the delivery of our wedding pictures to our front door, he was knowledgeable, helpful, personable and professional. We found Ryan so easy to work with! On our wedding day, he maintained a balance of providing direction and allowing space. Although our ceremony included a small group, and was relatively brief, he was creative and thorough in capturing all the poses and moments that we wanted, and we will cherish the pictures. We are sure Ryan would provide the same high level of service and professionalism for any size wedding event!

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!

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!

We decided to have videography for our wedding very last minute and Chris was fantastic! He responded to our request very quickly and was on time and went with the flow of our day seamlessly. It was priceless to have pieces of our wedding day captured. Would highly recommend Chris to friends getting married! Price was reasonable and quality was great.

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.
