Dan did an AMAZING job with our wedding videography. He added in elements that were very unique including different camera angles and "fly on the wall" moments. Dan is very easy to work with as well when it comes to editing the video, he asks you every step of the way what you want to change, keep..etc. I would highly recommend him to anyone wanting to capture their special day, you will have a fantastic video for you to look back on and treasure forever! Here's a link to my short video he did:

If I could give more than 5 stars I would!! Carey is simply THE BEST!! She is not just a photographer..she was more than an understanding friend to us from the time I called her with much hesitation. Today was my daughter's first birthday party..Carey came to our party half an hour before to get used to lightings..that itself showed her professionalism! She even helped us with decor setting ideas..very friendly.. She took many snaps which I m hoping will come out good,fingers crossed! The reason I m writing this review even before I got my photos is the way Carey understood our conditions and the unpredictable moods of our 1 year's really difficult to get good poses and she was very patient with an always smiling face.. She didn't once mention about getting late or hurry us. Working with her was a great experience at an affordable cost..I ve already raved about her to my party guests and I m planning to recommend her to all my friends' kids parties once I get the photo dvd.. If u are in doubt like me about if it is worth spending on outside photographic professionals,pls do not hesitate! It's worth every penny,saves u a ton of tension and lets u have a relaxed time on ur big day. Carey made it all easier for us today :)

The job was about video recording of a joint choir performance at Novi Middle School auditorium. Steve replied to email fast. He arrived early to setup the camcorder and microphones and recorded the performance with HD quality video. He is easy to communicate and is very reliable. His recording was great with zooming in to show individual performers clearly.

    Mike is much more than a talented art director/creative director. He also has quite a skill for editing video. Unlike a typical editor, Mike can add an extra level of creative thinking to every video he edits. As a past writing partner, I had the opportunity to work with Mike several years ago on a TV commercial for the Alliance for Climate Protection. It was produced for an international contest through Current TV and our spot, “Perry the Cockroach,” placed fourth in the world. “Perry” was a very simple spot, but Mike’s creatively keen eye made it better than the words. It was my great pleasure working with him on this project…and many others. And now, whenever I come across a freelance opportunity that calls for me to partner with a designer/video editor I always call Mike. - Kevin Curtis

    Fast Forward Videos made my daughter's bat mitvah video. She was super easy to work with, I was on a very tight schedule and had little time to allocate to this project. I gave Shelly the videos and pictures and worked her magic into a beautiful 10 minute video that brought my daughters and many others to tears. She is great at editing, putting together a story and did exactly what i asked.her to do.

    I've worked with Jeremy Dulac for more than a year in the production of my "Cars In Context" Cable Access TV show and content for my YouTube channel, and was so pleased to have his video production expertise on my team. His passion for excellence and innovation is what kept new ideas and show improvements on track for me, and it was refreshing to have someone like Jeremy champion the melding of tech and techniques to improve the engagement and overall watchability of my videos. That alone is a good reason why I can recommend having Jeremy Dulac on YOUR video production team -- but when you add in how much fun he is to work with, it becomes a no-brainer!

      I hired Evan to do a couple of different video shoots for me. Everything he did on the project was as good as it could be. The lighting, the framing of the video, and the audio. Everything on both video shoots was perfect. He went above and beyond and shot extra b-roll to be used in one of the projects. He was quick on his feet and thought ahead to what might be needed in the final edit. He was exactly right. I ended up using several shots in the "extra" video that he shot. He is a very talented shooter and editor. I look forward to using him again.

        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.
