I am Jim Sotelo, runner and triathlete and founder of Low Impact Running (LIR). Approximately (4) years ago, I was sidelined by osteoarthritis but got back on my feet by developing my own style of low impact running called LIR. I discovered that I could use LIR to help others to be able to run again or to begin a running exercise program such as: Those with joint problems; children and adults with intellectual disabilities; children and adults that are physically challenged and children battling childhood obesity. My problem was that I had a day job and could not travel to promote the benefits of my LIR to schools and organizations and individuals. So this is when I contacted Scott Temple with Quickbloom. His solution was to develop a series of videos that would be informative; instructional; motivational; and inspirational. I could then make these videos available to anyone that could benefit. Over the past couple of years, Scott has not only produced a half dozen great videos for me, but has developed a strategic marketing program utilizing social media and including blogs and newsletters. Also Scott and I were able to develop a Low Impact Running Manual, which he was able to format and get published and now is available on line at ITunes and Nook and Barnes & Noble. He took my rough LIR Manual and turned it into a marketable item. He has a gift of being able to paint a picture with words and was able to give life to my Manual. Scott is one of the most creative people that I have had the pleasure to meet. He was able to develop videos for me that have received only praise. During the developmental stages, he was able to put everyone at ease during filming, including myself. Doctors; Surgeons; Athletes and other professional people found it easy to be in front of the camera with Scott's direction. We worked a lot with Kids and Scott was excellent in relating to them and directing them to an excellent video presentation. I thought so highly of Scott, that I introduced him to one of my customers and major corporation, Thorlo Inc. They were impressed by him and his video work and put him on retainer as their company videographer. In summary, Scott Temple has helped a dream and passion of mine to become a reality and I strongly encourage anyone to use Scott and his abilities to help in their marketing endeavors. Sincerely, Jim Sotelo

My husband and I were opening up an art gallery and at the very last minute realized we wished we had hired a videographer for the grand opening. At the very last minute I contacted Thumbtack and found Ron. Gratefully he responded immediately, and met us at our store with his lovely wife. We have seen the video he produced and we have seen the photos he took. We are very impressed! We have no current photos to share at this time. But we highly recommend using Ron. If you go to his website you will see the gallery. Or check out his work on our website

    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.
