they are so warm professional talented and sensitive to the needs of the bride families and guest. Their job isn’t easy, yet they perform it with great ease . The end result of their hard work was exquisite. Never did I expect such beautiful film. Editing had to be gruesome, yet they provided the most beautiful, captured moments of our lives. Their work is unique and exquisite. I was overwhelmingly blessed when I viewed what they did for my daughter on her wedding day. Thank you so much for your kindness and talent you so lovingly extended in your work Jeremy and Caty.

Charles Easley assisted me in getting my book published by Amazon. He provided me with counsel and advice throughout this process; although, in some significant aspects he did most of the work himself. In advance of working with me, Charles Easley showed me a list of no fewer than 12 services that he would provide. Among these, he put my manuscript into proper form for both print and ebook versions. He set up the Amazon account, and he helped me select the categories under which the book would be listed. He produced a masterful film trailer for the book in advance of its publication and a revised version when the book was released. The overall result was a great deal of interest in the book and generated impressive sales. I highly recommend Charles Easley as someone who delivers outstanding service not only in terms of publishing but also in marketing. He is diligent, trustworthy, and delivers what he promises with the highest integrity and quality.

He is really a jack of all trades: writing, directing, cinematography, scoring, etc. If you need it, Chris can do it. I highly recommend his services.

    I hired Charlotte Films for Hire for my wedding. I honestly was a little reluctant because he was so reasonable with his pricing and it didn't seem to match with professionalism I was presented with but I went with my gut and I couldn't be happier. Jason made sure I we got everything we asked for-he even made more of an impression over the photographer who is a friend of ours ;) Jason did excellent work with our video, we love it and the awesome graphics and editing! Thank you for making this special memory forever for us :)

      I worked with Brian from MediaZeus on a video for my company and it has gotten rave reviews. Brian was great during the filming process. He was very helpful and constructive during the process. He took his time and took lots of takes. I really was not that prepared and the video turned out great. Thanks MediaZeus! I want to order up another one soon.

      We approached Evan with the thought of a impossible task in which he absolutely blew our minds away with. We where flying a famous Porsche builder out from Japan to build us a custom widebody Porsche and our Videographer wasn't able to make it at the last minute so we contacted TruFlixMedia via a reference from a friend in which he accepted the job and traveled to us the next day. This is a full blown documentary film in which Evan tackled full force putting in three back to back 10 hour days of filming. We where more than impressed with his drive, determination and work ethic when it came to this project. He just released the trailer for the documentary and we are all blown away with the quality of footage that he provided. I was not expecting this at all and I am extremely happy that we contacted him.

        About

        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.
