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.

I asked Tom to create a very special one year anniversary video of our first year together for my wife This included pictures, video and selected music. The end product was amazing and completed within a short period of time. I am already planning to use Tom again for a similar video of an upcoming climbing expedition. I would highly recommend Tom due the high quality at a fair price and ease of working with him. Thanks again 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.

very easy to work with and quick to respond, also very good value compared to other videographers! the reason I am doing 4/5 is because the ending of our dance got cut off by the camera, so some of our last moves are not visible. it is not a huge deal, and the video overall turned out great. he did a beautiful intro for me that included one of our wedding decorations. they also allowed me to review the video and ask for any changes. I would recommend!!

Mike did such a fantastic job as our videographer for our wedding. I ended up deciding just 2 weeks before the wedding that I had to have a videographer and used this website. He contacted me immediately and we were able to move forward with the contract within the same day. Mike came very prepared in knowing exactly what I wanted and to get all the right shots. I for sure wanted the ceremony, speeches, and first dances, and he did that plus every other detail from our wedding day. He worked very closely with our photographer which helped everything go smooth. Mike was very timely in getting us our highlight video, full feature video, and even some fun outtakes. He even sent us a link to our video as well as DVDs. Seriously everything is perfect and I know that we will cherish this video forever. If you are looking for someone who will make your day extra special, go with Mike!!

We are a solar panel installation company out of St. Paul that has performed hundreds of installations through out the state. We hired Chris to take pictures of some of our recent installations for our website and other marketing materials. Chris was quick to respond to our Thumbtack posting and was great to communicate with. He was very flexible and easy to work with. We spent the day driving around the state going to different installs for the photos. He was willing and able to get on top of roofs to get the perfect shots. He was very easy to work with and offered great pricing. We plan to hire Chris again for future shoots.

Todd was good to work with and did a great job. We love the video he prepared from 4 cassettes of our son's soccer games. He chose the best action from 4-6 hours of tape of our son and made us a very, very enjoyable 5-6 minute highlights video.

Spencer Knott and North 119 Productions recently helped my wife and I with our wedding video. They were professional, easy to work with, affordable, and made us both feel comfortable the whole time. They also went above and beyond with the video - making it personal and unique to our relationship and story. We could not be happier with the final product of our Wedding video and know it will be something we will cherish for the remainder of our lives. We both could not recommend North 119 Productions highly enough to anyone interested. We will be sure to reach out to them in the future with any needs that come up. 5 Stars!!

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.
