I worked with Rory on photography and videography initiatives for the 2014 Net Impact Conference. These are critical needs for our event, so our search for a service provider was an extensive one. Rory’s enthusiasm, experience, and amiability made him stand out from day one. Rory went above and beyond to ensure we were happy with the collaboration at all times. Not only are we delighted with the final products, but Rory’s customer service throughout the project was second to none. He was always engaged, available, willing to go the extra mile, and a pleasure to work with from start to finish. I would highly recommend Rory for any photography or videography projects, and hope to work with him again at our event in 2015.

MakeYourMemory did our wedding videography and we could not be happier!! They really captured the major moments of our big day and included the special points throughout the day. They were so easy to work with and made everything go very smoothly. Super nice people that were a joy to be around and made us feel comfortable. The final product was more than we could have ever asked for and was completed very quickly. Do not hesitate to book them, you will not regret it!

We had Tom video our daughter's wedding in August. It was a large wedding of 400 people and he did an amazing job capturing footage and putting together a wonderful memory for us to have. Her ceremony was outside and the reception inside. He was very reasonably priced as well. You won't be sorry you chose him.

I was having a hard time finding video for my wedding and received a recommendation through my photographer for MJS Productions. I reached out and he talked through his services with me. I was pleased to find that he was able to do my wedding for a really good value and be onsite at my wedding for a minimum of 7hrs. Overall, when we received the final video in the mail, it was so enjoyable to watch everything back over again. I highly recommend not just going with photography but also getting a videographer. It is so worth it, and going with Mike was a good decision we made. He was on time, he was a cool guy to be around on the wedding day, and he did a great job with our video.

Al Maruggi is, without question, the best, most professional, videographer I have ever worked with. Al was responsible for 100% of the sound, set, lighting, videography, complex post-production editing, and FCPX and Motion 5 work for my extraordinarily complex 3-hour "light board" instructional video — and I could not be more thrilled with the outcome. He listened carefully to what my goals were, and then engineered the entire videography process, from initial conception and design, through set work, filming, editing, and post production, straight through to final product playing for me on my own computer. At every step, Al used clear and responsive communication to guide me to decisions that would lead to the highest possible quality product. "You're a well-respected author," he told me more than once. "This has got to be absolutely perfect." I contrast this with other videographers who would come to my events, do a video shoot, and hand me raw video on a thumb drive that I never knew what to do with. Never ONCE did Al leave me hanging, having to make decisions I don't feel qualified to make. He always took me to the next step I needed to make my project perfect. Now I have something that families gladly pay $199 to purchase, and I am proud of it. Whether you need instructional video, corporate video, outdoor/artsy video, or sales and commercial video, I suggest you talk to Al. If you live outside of Minnesota, I suggest you FLY here to work with him. Highest possible recommendation. Five stars.

Alex is very professional. He arrived 5 minutes earlier than the time I told him. He recorded my one-hour long presentation and took great pictures. He offered great service afterwards and did his best to apply all my comments. 250 dollars was the price I paid for all this great service. Alex is highly recommended for your photography and videography needs and I will certainly contact him again in future.

We loved working with Morgan. She did a great job capturing our wedding day and the video she made turned out amazing! At first we didn't think we needed a videographer but decided to hire Morgan in the end. I'm so glad we did!

We hired Doyle to take over our Raw Videography package for a wedding we were serving as we had other duties on that day. He was genuine and very easy to work with plus took time to talk and ask questions to learn what we expected. After the first hour we were all at ease knowing and trusting that he would do the job right and take care of our customers. The footage was sharp and unique and told the story of the wedding day. He also had redundant equipment to ensure footage was taken and saved during the critical ceremony period. Overall the experience was better than expected. We will be calling him again for future projects.

Amy was very attentive. She worked hard to make sure we were happy, that she covered all the photos we could possibly want and handle some difficult subjects that we identified. And she was stealthy like ninja! She never intruded on intimate moments, but still worked to get the shot.

Anthony has completed many photography projects for me & my family over the past several years. He has taken my college graduation pictures, a maternity photo shoot, my new born daughters 1st pictures, holiday family pictures, & family birthdays. Needless to say his work is perfection! Truly a work of art! He has the greatest talent for capturing that priceless moment in a single click of a camera. We look forward to a life commitment of photography with Anthony!

I strive to capture your day in a way that your guest won't know I'm there. That way I can capture those hidden emotions that come out on camera. I don't try to capture straight on shots but try to find the best angle to tell the story.

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.
