Dan was the editor and a camera operator for our documentary film, Strong Sisters. His camera work was excellent - both for the interviews and for the b-roll he shot for us. Dan was reliable and showed the proper respect and professionalism at our interviews. But Dan's real impact was as our editor. He worked closely with us to filter 76 interviews into a 70-minute documentary. Dan was instrumental in finding the right quote to move the story forward. He worked with us to improve the flow of the story, add elements like graphics and archival video and photos, and pace the film so that is wasn't too slow or overwhelming. Dan went above and beyond an editor's responsibilities, supporting the project with new ideas and taking on the odd jobs that need to happen with this kind of independent film. His input was incredibly valuable and he was a pleasure to work with. He could be trusted to represent our project professionally and to work independently with our post-production team and other contractors. Any film or video project will benefit from his participation on the team. Feedback on the film included: "I was very impressed with the quality." "Inspiring, informative and entertaining." "Superb!"

I don't know what to say about Tyquan. What an amazing human being and professional. Tyquan is very organized, polite, punctual, kind, patient, and professional. Having such a great photographer for our special day means the world, and Tyquan will certainly ensure that he does his part in making this day super special. I have not received my photos yet, but Tyquan did show me the pictures as he was taking them, and they were gorgeous. I can't wait to see the final product. You cannot go wrong with Tyquan! Don't look any further, he is your man. Not only would I recommend him, but I will also hire him for future events. Thank you, Tyquan!!

I've done quite a couple photo shoots with zach, and I'm absolutely inspired by his vision. He's an effortlessly original photographer who endlessly strives to do something different with each lens shutter. He truly treats photography like an art, and is always thoughtful and considerate when working with his models. Zach's work is evolving, and captivating, and never fails to push the limits of his creative edge. I am beyond pleased with how all of my photos have turned out. Highly recommend doing a shoot with zach. His professionalism, and kind hearted personality will bring you a unique perspective to the beauty that exists in this world. I look forward to more shoots in the future!

As a businessman, one of the main things I look for in the people I associate with is ambition, which is exactly how I met Jenny Larson. She volunteered on multiple occasions to assist in various roles in projects I have directed or produced. And I was happy to bring her on in a more official capacity as Set Photographer on a video shoot for The Tonwnsend Hotel in Birmingham, MI, one of the most prestigious hotels in the world. I am producing their new social media video campaign, and having Jenny on set was an absolute BLESSING. Not only is she incredibly easy and fun to work with, she is a true professional. She impressed the hell out of my colleagues, delivered edited photos in just three weeks, and took beautiful, beautiful shots documenting what ended up being a very special day for us. I couldn't be happier with the photos and look forward to working with her again.

Chris did an outstanding job capturing our special day in video. He didn't just stand there and hold a camera, he went into great detail and you can tell he enjoys his work when your final product is delivered. His editing skills are extremely good and flows incredibly well with the storylines of the day. For those of you looking for high quality videography for your wedding, I highly recommend Chris.

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.
