Kyle and Blake (I think?) did a GREAT JOB! Kyle was super-responsive to my Thumbtack request and all of my (many) follow-up questions. They were on time and did a great job. We haven't seen the finished/edited product yet (I don't expect to see that for a few weeks), but their on-site work was excellent. We would definitely recommend them (and will definitely use them in the future if we need videography services).

Fantastic, professional team, that has every resource and capability of putting together an exceptional end product. Very attentive to our needs - this was our first run at utilizing a company for corporate videography and Fable exceeded all of our expectations. From experience with other marketing projects, it's a careful balancing act the client and creators play in terms of who gives direction and what, but Caleb and the team were exemplary at all stages of the project. All feedback for revisions were taken professionally, with turn-around times being consistently fast (then again, they did such a great job the need for revisions wasn't often!). The creativity and soundness in delivering a modern, contemporary video took our collective ideas to another level. Highly recommended.

Ballistic Photography did our wedding videography in September 2017. Ryan is very personable, professional, and knowledgeable. He was fun and easy to work, eager to please, and was very attentive to detail during our outdoor wedding. We loved the final product and were very happy that we chose Ballistic Photography.

Patrick exceed all of our expectations! I've received many compliments that our wedding video was "the best they've ever seen". He nailed the emotion we wanted for the ceremony & also the excitement of the day. Through creative details, he really captured our wedding day perfectly. He was a pleasure to work with & I wouldn't hesitate to hire him again!

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

Palani went above and beyond working our wedding! He was friendly and kind and on top of things. I knew I didn't have to worry about anything and as the bride, that is such a gift! He also worked with my husband on a super special secret project and was thorough and professional. We had a lot of the vendors at our wedding including photographers, band, wedding coordinator, caterer and baloney worked great with all of them at the different times to make sure that every important moment of our day was captured on film. I would definitely love to work with him again and would highly recommend him to any of my family, friends or acquaintances!

About

As there are many other companies to choose from, we put emphasis on knowing that there is more to what you want, than through what you say. We’ve trained ourselves to read in-between the lines and offer solutions to take things one-step further. In agreement with someone we once heard, we truly believe that our degrees make up 1% of our success, and our passion, talent, and drive make up the other 99%. Everyday brings something “bigger” and “better”, or accredits itself as the next new trend. We prefer to stay away from all of that and instead aid you in creating a movement.

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.
