Just a few days separated my husband and I from saying our "I do's." Well that and the fact that we did not have a photographer yet! As my "soon to be" attempted to calm me, I frantically started searching through websites, calling everyone we knew asking if they knew of anyone who could did photography. At that point i was just happy to have someone with a camera. And then all of a sudden, my inbox notification went off and i knew, we had found her. You see, there was no "getting to know you," engagement session So it was up to her to capture everything I had hoped for in a small time. You see our wedding was only three hours long. But low and behold she did it... and boy did she do an amazing job! Thank you Laura!

Sam was the photographer for our wedding! He did an amazing job was there on time and stayed all day with us to capture our special day! Not only did he have many awesome photo ideas his attention to detail with light, body language, posing was superior! When we got the pictures back they were better than I could ever imagine and exceeded my expectations! After the wedding is over the only thing that remains is memories and pictures you don't want to worry about not having your photographer capture those moments. I would highly recommend Sam for your future wedding or any other special event! Thank you Sam for making our big day so memoriable!

Katy was great. She shot our wedding back in 2015 when she was just getting started. I was admittedly a little nervous because we were one of the first weddings she'd done, but was blown away with how great our pictures turned out. Even though we had a group of more than 40 people for some pictures, she was still able to coordinate everyone on a schedule and get awesome shots. If my wife gets sick of me and I have to get married again, I know who to call!

About

Charles and Michael are owners and signature videographers of Forever Films. Each has spent much time developing their skills and appreciation for capturing the amazing experience of weddings on film forever. Together they have assembled a hand-picked team of other talented and dedicated videographers who are devoted to capturing your wedding for you, perfectly as you desire. Hire a professional: most "videographers" are shooting on old equipment. This can be very unreliable and pose a lot of problems. Also, many "videographers" are older and have been in the broadcast field for years and are doing this as a side gig. Here is the other problem: in the wedding business because most weddings are on the weekends, many people are weekend 'wedding warriors'. They do this as a side job and it shows. They are used to shooting news from 500 feet from the scene on a tripod, not the groom launching the bride into his arms on the dance floor. This style is much different. At Forever Films, we do video all day, every day. So we are professionals with a vested interest, not weekend amateurs. Say cheesy? Why are most wedding videos so cheesy? Here is a simple answer to a great question: most "videographers" shoot their video in the North American Broadcast Standard of 30 frames per second. This is also the frame rate that soap operas are shot in (now you know why soap operas are so weird feeling). The problem is this removes the cinematic feel that movies have. What’s the difference? A movie is shot on film at a rate of 24 frames per second. We mimic film cameras digitally and shoot your wedding at 24 frames per second instead of 30 frames per second. This takes all the cheese out of your wedding, and gives your film a special warm and familiar feeling. Lastly, our videos are treated as creative art pieces that cannot be replicated by anyone other than the artist, every one is unique. We at Forever Films believe in what we do and that is why we are committed to serving you. Warmly, Charles & Michael

About

Congratulations on your engagement! This is going to be one of the most emotional days of your life! You need your photography and videography to be perfect. After all, it’s not every day that hundreds of friends and family gather to celebrate you. Hello! I’m Gregory Gittsovich, and I love photography, but more than that, I love helping couples capture the most precious moments of their lives. I’ve been illustrating wedding stories for over 25 years, and the most rewarding part of my career is watching couples’ reactions as they first see the emotional images of their wedding. That’s what I’ve devoted my life to. Your wedding isn’t just the most beautiful dress imaginable, perfectly color-coordinated flowers, and an awesome reception. The essence of your wedding is your love, excitement, and happiness. That’s why we are passionate about capturing the intimate moments other photographers often miss: your bridesmaids laughing as they attempt to figure out what attaches to what on the back of your dress, the look you and your father exchange before you take your first step together down the aisle, and the uncontrollable smiles as you exchange vows. We take pride in capturing the emotional story of your wedding, whether through photography or videography. As wedding videography specialists, we have the technical and artistic expertise to capture the unique story of your special day. Equipped with state-of-the art equipment, our team will artistically capture your love through sight, movement, and sound. Call us, and we’ll check the availability of your wedding date, as well as set up a time to meet and discuss your wedding. We look forward to meeting you!

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.
