Rory was great to work with. He was responsive to my inquiry for the job (it was the next day!). In addition, he provided me the digital download of the recording the next day as well. I'd definitely work with him again.

Nick was an absolutely amazing person to work with. From the first meeting to the final video he was professional, timely, and just made the experience wonderful. My husband and I were planning the wedding from out of state and Nick just worked with us and our schedules and made sure that no matter what the time difference was, to make sure that we felt heard and at ease. The day of our wedding he just made it so much fun! Everyone loved him and most people forgot that he was even carrying a video camera. The video itself turned out perfect and was everything we could have asked for. The memories that he captured we can’t say enough about. Thank you Nick for giving us such a great treasure to remember our day.

Tom was recently our Videographer for our wedding on 9/19/15. When we first met him we told him exactly what parts we wanted in our video. We got our video back just recently. Watched it and loved it! He got in everything we asked for and more. He captured some things I didn't know he got. He such a phenomenal job! I am very pleased with the editing and I am so glad I chose Tom. My husband and I can now relive our best day. Thank you Tom!

Cloud Media created a video for my company that actually blew my mind it was so well done. It was amazing. When I first talked to the company about doing a promotional video, I really didn't know what to expect. I'm not a photogenic person and was thinking I needed an actor or someone more experienced doing the narrating. They took all the video and pieces at different times without interrupting schedules or making it inconvenient. With all these pieces, I was expecting bits and pieces of video (which I did get). But the ending product was actually an incredible 4 minute video featuring myself, my employees and the business. It represents the business perfectly. Absolutely perfectly. I have showed it over and over to people and have watched it over and over. It actually made me feel proud of the company I produced, and for that I give a shout out and a monster thank you. The amazing part is that the pricing is so worth it. I'll be putting the video on our new website in May and I play it at the business groups I attend. This is actually a fun experience and the end result is crazy good.

Mike did a great job. He was professional, on time, and video graphed what we asked for and even some extras. He made sure he could be available to film while not being in the way. We are excited to see the final outcome. I would hire him again.

I had previously worked with a video person who should not have been doing video and didn't understand what I wanted. I worked with Matt at Cloverleaf and he was wonderful! We talked about my project, he asked questions and understood what I wanted and he delivered. We made the editing adjustments and it looks great! Very happy with them - they will get my video projects in the future.

Alex made a Pokemon spoof video for my orthodontic office. He was prompt and very friendly. He went along with all of our crazy ideas and even shot outside in the summer heat! He took extra photos and went above and beyond for me! He worked fast and had the right equipment for the job. He edited the video and got it uploaded to my business page in 24 hours!!!

The final work product we received from Hoffman Media was simply exceptional. Our goal in choosing Scott's team over others was to end up with a video whose professionalism would bely our company's small size. We wanted to "punch outside of our weightclass", and Scott's product absolutely delivered. We are extremely pleased.

Looking back, having this video is the best part about our whole day. Scott did such an amazing job on our video! It is so beautifully done and so much better than I could have ever imagined. We, along with all of our family and friends, were highly impressed with the quality of his work. I would highly recommend him to anyone as he did just an extraordinary job on our wedding video.

Rory recently took photos of my son for his senior pictures. He was super flexible with the project and made scheduling east via email and a nice personal touch in communication. His talented approach to these pictures made my somewhat shy son very comfortable and confident. His choices in location and poses were ideal for a casual and cool style for a senior shot. My son end our family thrilled with the setting and enjoyed Rory's cool and casual style to get fantastic shots to chose from. I would recommend him for personal portraits, professional, event, and creative concept needs. He has a fair price, for an awesome experience and talented work. Hw offers the personal package that suits the needs for your individual situation. I would highly recommend, talented, cool, creative/stylish and professional choice for creative and photography/video needs...business or personal.

Jack is a stellar collaborator with an ear and open mind for every type of music. We have worked together as professional singers and I have also been a client of his recording, post-production, album design, and album packaging services, most recently with The Rookery (www.rookerychoir.org). His live recording and re-mastering of existing tracks made for a compelling CD which sold well and helped to raise our local profile. I would recommend Jack for a variety of audio engineering needs; he is a student of life, and has been both prepared and flexible for a spectrum of clients and recording environments

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.
