Working with LakeSide Media went really well. On my end, the project came up quickly and with a limited amount of time to research and hire a videographer. This definitely made things more challenging but Blake and Kyle made things easy. They did their homework to try to understand the project (on short notice) and were really helpful and did great work. I look forward to working with them again in the future if the opportunity presents itself.

So many people told me how quickly my wedding day would pass. On top of that, you're stressing over the minor details trying to make sure the day is perfect. I tried my best to just enjoy the day, and for the most part, I did. However, at the end of the night I couldn't believe how the last 10 hours felt like 10 minutes! Caleb Dillon made that possible. Our videographer of choice, he captured our entire day and I was just blown away. I think we (and our entire family) have watched the "highlights" on repeat! And then we spend the rest of the weekend watching our entire ceremony. Caleb did an AMAZING job. I can't stress enough how happy I am that my husband and I chose Caleb's videography service. Caleb is a true professional and one of the nicest people you can talk to. Even my photographer (who has never worked with Caleb) said he was great to work with! The two of them were able to work together to capture our special day together. The editing was spectacular, and so was the song choices! Caleb really look the fun feel we wanted, and applied it to our wedding video as well. THANK YOU CALEB!!!

Patrick was the best videographer I have ever hired (and I've hired alot - at least 50 videographers in the past 3 years). His professionalism, timeliness, expertise and overall performance was impressive. He was fairly priced, very responsive and did above and beyond of what was originally requested. He deserves every penny of what he earns. Good luck Patrick on your business - you are going VERY far.

OMG is what I can say about Faithworks media and Mr. Steve Creel. One week before our wedding our original videographer bailed on us. We found thumbtack and Mr. Creel. When speaking with him he explained that he is new to the area but has much experience in "media production." He was empathetic of what happened and agreed to video our wedding with only 7 days notice. Our rehearsal was on a Friday evening he was the first person there. He was so nice. The wedding day the same on time and nice. Our photographer paid the biggest compliment saying "I usually find that videographers and I are usually competing for space but we both shared the space well and he was very respectful." Once my husband and I returned from our honeymoon Mr. Creel provided details of when we would receive copies and our youtube upload. One day at work I got the email for my youtube video and it was perfection. My husband and I were looking for someone to capture our special moment. Never did we expect a "youtube collaboration." When I opened the video I cried from beginning to end. It was everything that I could imagine and more. Most of all he did not try to rip us off. For a last minute his price was exceptionally reasonable. During the delivery of our videos he threw in 3 extra. He was like family. Enjoy! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iBcLd-zi5nk&feature=youtu.be

We were considering not having a videographer at our wedding. Matt was easy-going, professional and responsive. When I met him, I felt an instant rapport and felt he could provide the service at a reasonable price. Matt worked great with our wedding team and photographer. We had one camera person for the ceremony and reception which was all in one location. He was so amazing and flexible! We will cherish our wedding video and the highlight reel! And to top it off when he mailed me the DVD, it was had a picture of me and my adorable grandson! :) I hardly saw Matt during the event because he was pretty discreet and not a distraction. I would recommend him to capture your once-in-a-lifetime moments. Please make sure that you discuss your goals and expectations of the project to make sure you get exactly what you want.

Ambrose Lyn Dial is a highly qualified videographer who jumped right into our project, worked well with our members, and adhered to our relatively tight schedule. We are quite satisfied with the results of the main video and the short clips for social media. If we had another video project, we would not hesitate to call her.

We decided pretty late in the process of planning that we wanted to hire a videographer. We did some searching and found Bryon. We had a long phone conversation with him about what he could do and what our goals were. We had a few ideas of what we wanted for our video in mind and we presented these to Bryon, asked if he could do a little of this and a little of that, and he delivered. He did a great job with the editing, was always VERY responsive/easy to contact, worked well with our photographer, and fit all of this into our budget. My wife and I would recommend you to look to Bryon and First Crush Productions for any event that you want video of.

    Brian is very professional when it comes to getting in touch and returning phone calls. His work is amazing! He listens to what you want and makes sure you like it before he prints the video off. We got our wedding DVD back very quick after our wedding. Everyone in our family loved the video. His prices are the best that I have come across. He does an extraordinary job! This is one HAPPY bride.

    From start to finish, Palani spends the time needed to produce quality results. Of the six videographers who bid on my job, he was the only one to go to the event venue to assess both the room and lighting. His assessment was a key differentiator, which made my hire decision easy. Through the planning phase, Palani listened to my requirements, and where appropriate, he suggested different options that helped me to improve on what I wanted. During the shoot, he was able to record all speakers without being intrusive. Both the video and sound quality were excellent, and he took photos of attendees and family throughout the event that enhanced the final deliverable. Where he delivers real value is during the editing phase. After completing the shoot, Palani kept me appraised of the steps he was taking to combine the materials. At key points when he had material ready for review, he would provide samples for feedback. This alone enabled me to ensure I had memories that would stand the test of time. Further, Palani provided all the source files so that, if needed in the future, I could refine the recordings further. I am thoroughly pleased with Palani's professionalism and responsiveness to provide high-quality recordings, and the value is exceptional.

    Matt Abele from Capital City Creative was the videographer for my wedding in May. I had always seen beautiful wedding highlight videos before and was hoping for something even half as good. My mind was blown when we saw the footage and highlight video from our wedding. Matt was able to capture every important moment and created an experience that we were able to watch over and over again. I cried watching my now husband get ready for our wedding day, as I had not seen this before. I 110% recommend this company to record the best day of your life. He was easy to work with and you didn’t even realize he was videoing, it was all seamless. What a great experience!

      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.
