I was impressed with the responsiveness to my initial requests. They went above and beyond to come set up the booth before I booked them because I wasn,t sure it would fit in my venue. There was some final commumication issues just prior to the event but everything was set up on time and everyone enjoyed themselves immensely. THe setup for the video montage not so good. THey did not have special cord with them to hook up the audio but we were able to rig something up to make it work.

StoriesUp produced a music video for my band. Their attention to detail and creative direction definitely blew us away. Any setbacks or location issues were quickly resolved by their crew. They use top of the line equipment and seem to always have a few tricks up their sleeves when it comes to cool shots or techniques. Expectations were exceeded.

I have used Boom on multiple occasions, each time they have provided exactly what I was looking for, with high quality results. They had the right mix of equipment to meet each specific project's needs. From a simple two person photo shoot to a large scale team building event, complete with aerial video, they had it covered. There was a good balance of meeting my creative requests and providing professional input on getting the best quality product. I would definitely use Boom reactive again.

We used Tower Studios for our Wedding Videography and our video was amazing!! We told the editors/videographer that we wanted a 'When Harry Met Sally' theme for the Highlights video. The Videographer made sure to get 'interviews' from the couples at our wedding. The editor put the video together exactly how we anticipated. We now not only have the priceless moments of our wedding, but the 'how we met' from many of our guests. The people at Tower Studios are truly talented and creative. They are a definite MUST hire for your wedding!!

We were all a little nervous about making a video. Jeff and his team set us at ease, worked with us on the script, delivered everything we asked for and more, and made the production process smooth. Our President & CEO is very happy with the results. I recommend him; we will be using his services again for future projects.

Every team member we had the pleasure to work with at Captiva has possessed a high degree of skill, competency and professionalism. Not only do they add value in terms of their quality of work and creative output, which is second to none, but their ability to offer so many in-house services - like voice over, script writing, or strategy - is truly what sets them apart. They always seem to know exactly what we’re looking for, and can visually articulate it in such a profound way.

Beverly Boy is a very flexible company. They are willing to do almost anything to make sure a client is happy at the end of the day. We have had to go back and forth a few times and change a few things about my project, and every time they have no problem helping me in whatever way I deem fit! I couldn't be happier with the outcome of this. I will be using them again any time I need a video project!!

    Superb. Highly recommended! Mr. Gutierrez has done hundreds of photoshoots for the Ellerbrake Group of RE/MAX Preferred. His abilities to make photographs and video come to life are rare commodities. As they say, "Some things they just can't teach." Even though he has a Bachelor of Fine Arts with a focus on photography, I think he just has natural, God-given if you will, ability and an innate sense of what to do to bring out the emotion in his work. I found myself staring at many of his photos and admiring his ability to evoke a response. This translates into great results no matter the subject!

    About

    Royalwood Video Productions is a complete video production studio ranging from events to movies to commercials. We strive to give our customers the exact product that they are looking for. Just listen to our customers: "My wife and I met with Jim and his wife at our wedding venue, and he very clearly explained what type of equipment he would use, how the audio would work, what the finished product would be, and how he would shoot in a manner that was nearly transparent to us and our guests. He answered all our questions and provided some very good, constructive suggestions. The finished product is very nice. It came in a professional-looking case, was separated into nice chapters, scene-by-scene views, a highlights version, and a couple of special treats we had not expected. After receiving the video, I asked for a couple of minor changes, and Jim was very receptive and responded quickly. His attention to customer service is very good. I found the entire experience very pleasant, and the price was extremely reasonable compared to other videographers I looked into. I spoke with about seven or eight others. I would highly recommend Royalwoods video for your video project." Contact us today for all your video needs!

    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.
