I sing in an acoustic group and needed a professional video of some of our performances. Mark was extremely flexible in scheduling and did an outstanding job. He also continuted to work with me well after the date of the performance and did some excellent editing that really helped me promote my group. Would definitely recommend!

I have nothing but great things to say about these folks. We hired LakeSide Media to film and produce a company video testimonial. They were a pleasure to work with, collaborated with us on the necessary video edits, and the end product turned out great. I'd use them again in a heartbeat.

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!!!

Working with Jon and Zara was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. They are such a fun couple and every single wedding video they make is better than the one before. Our wedding video was not only amazingly done, but it was delivered in such a timely manner. We got our 1 minute highlight video within 24 hours of the wedding, the 5 minute video within 2 weeks, and the 60 minute full video within 3 weeks. They surprised us by showing up at our house delivering the final video in an carved wooden box with an engraved USB drive, along with wine. Everything from the communication, to the fast turnaround time, to the presentation was spectacular. We are so thankful to have the videos to watch for the rest of our lives and relive the day over and over again! Thank you SO much, Jon and Zara! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EPu0Zu6QoXY

Working with Meraki Motion Pictures has been and continues to be a breath of fresh air in an otherwise stressful work world. I believe the professionalism and creative aspect Dave brings to the table could be so valuable to a multitude of individuals and businesses. He has certainly impressed me during multiple music video shoots and projects on which I have worked with him, especially when I’m met with the same enthusiasm about my creative project as I’m pouring out! His passion to create the product that aligns with your vision shines through in his work ethic and he is always prompt and professional. I cannot recommend working with Meraki Motion Pictures enough.

Working with Kenni was a blast! I discovered Kenni's music services from a local ad. With me being new to the area, I didn't know what to expect. But after reviewing his website and attending a few of his gigs, my gut feeling was that this guy has what it takes! Kenni recorded and produced an instrumental of mine. I was impressed by his time management and ability to provide resources when my ideas ran out! I was also impressed by his ability to "absorb" the song and run with it (and enhance it based on the music genre and current market). I certainly will tap Kenni's KH Productions for my next project. I only would that I had the time and resources to solicit his assistance more often! Anthony Raleigh, NC

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.

    Phil co-produced and recorded my first band. He stuck with the project for the full 10-months it took make. The guy is a perfectionist, dedicated, and fluid in his approach to creative processes. The album went on to be named a top 12 regional release as selected by an independent group of New Orleans music writers in 2012.

    I am a musician attempting to make a presence through different social media outlets. Clear Choice Marketing Group was a great partner in getting a video out there for a cover song I had done in order to put a light hearted spin on an otherwise "heavy" toned song. They were extremely communicative, prompt, and overall professional. The only reason I didn't give five stars was because I could see in some instances the animation skills still needed some development; but overall I was happy with the production. Here's a link if you care to take a look! https://youtu.be/e-uAjUT93jM

    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.
