Parker was truly amazing to work with! He was so responsive before our big day came and always open to hearing our vision and ideas while also telling us about his personal style and describing what he thought would work for us. It genuinely felt like he was excited to be a part of our big day, and so many of our wedding guests talked about how kind and professional he was. Every time I looked at him he was beaming! He was so flexible when it came to the day of the events, whether it was schedule changes or impromptu filming, he was right there and ready to handle it. He was even able to incorporate a drone for our ceremony! In the best way, I didn't even notice he was there half of the time- which helped him to capture all of us in our natural elements I'm sure! He worked so well with our photographer and they just met the day of. I absolutely CANNOT wait to see his finished product but I know that it will be amazing!

Derrick and Heather are amazing! They made it so easy, working around us, guiding/directing us as needed, stopping traffic... They are the dream team of wedding videography. They first provided us with a video snippet, followed by a highlight film, and finished off with a full feature video, all within 2 months of our wedding. The turnaround time was excellent and the videos are incredible-- they have such an artistic way of piecing together music, voices, and video segments. They are truly exceptional, especially for the value. We remain AMAZED and IMPRESSED. The full video is stunning and captures our day perfectly! Working with Derrick and Heather was the best decision we made for our wedding day. Thank you both for capturing our love, family, and friends!

Originally we weren't even going to do a video just the normal photographer like most all others do but we decided to do the video as a side note to the photos and wow am i glad we decided that. The video ended up being the STAR of the show and the photos were just the side act. There is nothing like a video - Pictures, while they are great they just don't capture the raw emotion of such an event. as a wedding. This video will be what we go back and look at 20 years from now - To me...it is worth more than any gold or jewels - It is priceless and could never be replaced. It is important to note however, yes, anyone can shoot a video , but not like Chris and his experienced team. They knew right where to be for the best angles, knew exactly how to take the shots so that once they were ready to create the final cut of the video it was everything they needed and the editing was JUST UNBELIEVABLE!!!! It was suspensful, emotional, funny and altogether extremely entertaining and one might say yeah that is because it was your family but honest to GOD - i would have enjoyed this video even if it were another couple getting married - it was laid out and scripted just that well - It was a production!!!! Thank you Chris - Hiring you was the best decision i ever made!! I would have paid 5 times what you charged us!! Thanks Again Sir!!!

Catey is our go to photographer. From engagement to wedding to soon to be newborn shoots, we trust her with it all. She seems to take the ordinary situations and capture those extraordinary moments. To top it all off, she handles her business professionally and on time. We have never had to wait long for final pictures which is funny because we would wait as long as we had to for quality of pictures that she takes.

Thank you to Active Imagination for doing a beautiful job capturing our wedding! Kevin, the owner, was wonderful to work with leading up to the wedding and during the filming you could hardly tell that he was there. He was very friendly and made the entire experience fantastic. I can't say enough about how impressed we were with the final product. It captured the essence of us - our story, how much fun we had with our wedding party and guests, and how thrilled we were to be getting married. We are so happy we went with them and that we have a wedding video to remember our unbelievable day!

My experience in working with Ms. Walker has always been a professional and wonderful experience. Shes on time and in time. Her photos are quality and her editing is superb. The best part about working with her is that she is extremely quick with her services, whether it is photos, editing or creating logos.

I cannot say enough good things about Hopemedia Videography! I contacted Victor about two weeks prior to my project launch date as I initially was planning to do the filming myself. I'm so glad I chose to trust Victor with the videography for my first YouTube video. Victor is a true professional in every sense of the word. He did a wonderful job of capturing my personality and demonstrating my message visually. It was heartwarming to go back and watch the clip of my vision brought to life. Victor met with me prior to the actual day of filming, to discuss my ideas and then again on the day of filming. My final clip turned out wonderfully and I received over 100 views the first night that I launched my YouTube Channel to the public. I will remain in contact with Victor and aim to utilize his services for future projects.

    About

    I think my work stands out from other photographers in this area, because my clients are more than just a paycheck for me. I love creativity and am grateful that my clients choose me to express that through them. I consider my sessions something for you as well as for me...I put a lot of love and effort into my images, as well as the client. I'm by no means perfect, and they know that. I know that I can always improve, and use each session as an opportunity to do so. I think you can see my progress and dedication with each session, and no two sessions of mine are the same. I try to use different techniques and locations so your images are unique. Hope that made sense...I tend to ramble, haha.

    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.
