Valerie was an amazing photographer/woman. She was so helpful at the beginning before we even booked her - she explained what she felt was a great timeline for the day of and put me at ease. I went with a list of questions, and she addressed every question except for 1 before I even had a chance to ask them. She required a reasonable down payment and allows you to break up the rest of the bill into payments if you would. Because her pricing was so great I opted to just give her Cash on the day of the service. Afterward the contract was signed she left me alone. Which was the best thing ever. She always responded timely if I had any questions. She was a great support to have - without needing to dictate what she wanted. She definitely provided me the guidence I needed. The day of she was on time and ready to work. My family can be hard sometimes - she smiled and was extremely professional. She was exactly what I needed to keep the wedding party in line and on schedule. If she was not assertive we would still be taking pictures today a month and a half later. She was in great communication with our DJ the day of to help coordinate all the event timelines so she was ready to snap pictures of everything. The wedding was on a Saturday in August which is an extremely busy time for photographers and she had all the pictures ready to view online the Wednesday following the wedding. She made a beautiful slideshow and sent the link right away. It was easy to share with everyone and anyone can order prints right from there. We have not ordered any prints yet - we can not decide which ones we want to get because there are so many phenomenal ones. Her packages are at a great value and for a reasonable amount more she gives an edited disc of all the pictures. When we have any events in the future we will definitely call Valerie first! I really can not describe how happy we are with all the process and service provided.

Igor was fantastic! We hired him to do family pictures which included 2 young children under the age of 4. He arrived on time (drove 2 hrs each way to get to us!). He was patient with our kids who weren't excited to be taking pictures. He made great recommendations on background and people placement. He would have done more but our kids were done after 1.5 hrs. We have used more expensive photographers, and Igor's work is on par with theirs. Our pictures are beautiful and we appreciate his work! Highly recommend!

We hired The DJ's Mic, for a 40th birthday. Decided to go with the full package deal. Lights, sound, a photographer, and Photobooth. This was our first photobooth experience, and I must say the kids had loads if fun. The music was a nice blend of anything that you would typically find on the radio, with some older stuff thrown in for old timers like myself. I do want to apologize to "Mike" our DJ. The kids would not leave him alone. However he was very patient with them and played all of there songs. Over all I would recommend. We paid $2400 for a DJ, Photography, A photobooth, and the DJ. A great price!

My company and I have had the pleasure of working with David on two events. Both times he exceeded our expectations; this, based off of our experience with previous photographers. David's level of professionalism is reflected through his presence when shooting an event, and in the final product. With this in mind, David Bruno is a fantastic event photographer. He delivers magazine-ready images, that in our case, wind up making it to print. And, ultimately, he has helped us create a portfolio of beautiful, head-on + candid images, that showcase everything our company is made of. For this, we are infinitely grateful.

My husband Aaron and I found Jim on Thumbtack.com while looking for photographers for our wedding. Aaron and I had already spent hours over the past weekends looking at photographer websites. We weren't excited about any of them until we stumbled upon Jim. It was the first time we were both enthusiastic about any of the photographers we had found online. We immediately decided to contact Jim. He gave us a great quote for the wedding photography, and it included a special engagement shoot to get to know each other and get some shots taken before the big day. Jim was so flexible in helping us find a place to hold the engagement shoot. We ultimately decided to meet in Portsmouth for a sunset brewery tour and photo shoot. It was amazing! We had such a great time at the shoot, and Jim was so personable. He made what many would consider a stressful occasion such a fun experience. He did a great job at balancing the brewery stops with getting the important shots taken. After the engagement shoot, we were even more confident that we had chosen the right guy for the job. And even more so when he sent the edited photos only a week or so after the shoot. Fast forward to the week of the wedding. Jim was extremely proactive in making sure everything was set for the big day. We were so excited when he told us that he would have a second shooter helping him at the wedding. At the wedding, Jim made sure we captured all of the moments that we hoped for, and so many special moments that we never would have thought of ourselves. He made sure to send us a sampling of the night while we were on our honeymoon, and then delivered the complete set of photos only a few weeks later. It is an understatement to say how happy we were with the photos!! Finally, Jim's website is very convenient to use, and we are able to access and download our photos anytime, in single and bulk downloads. The images are high quality, high resolution jpegs that are large enough that you don't have to worry about pixelation when printing large photos for your friends and family. I can't think of anything else to add except that Jim is amazing and he will take great care in documenting your special day!

“Talented photographers” are very hard to find, especially when needed to capture moments of honest love. My fiance and I had the greatest pleasure of working with Mark during our shoot. What got to me, the future bride to-be, was how passionate and patient he was. I had my sister there, who was a huge comfort for me because she, herself, is a professional model who has been in the spotlight thousands of times, and he did not let that trouble him. He found that rather amusing and made the time more enjoyable. How his certain suggestions for certain things made the photos appear more natural and raw. We had the chance to know each other a little bit more and I shared to him that we had just built our first home together this past May 2017. He then insisted we switched the location of the photoshoot to the new house. Now, the photos have more value knowing that the background of the images, is our home. Let’s not forget how funny his guy is either! How 2 ½ hours went by so effortlessly because we all were just having so much fun! He’s skillful. He’s sharp. He’s humorous. He is someone that we definitely hire for any other occasions.

Christophe was very professional, skilled, and the photos turned out beautifully! I cannot recommend him enough. He made sure we had all the traditional photos for our wedding and also took plenty of candids. He made sure our special day was captured exactly how we remember it. Christophe is by far one of the best photographers I have every worked with!

Tony was great to work with! We had a small wedding with close friends and family at Boston City Hall, followed by a luncheon after. He helped plan things out in advance, showed up early, had great ideas for photos, and was low-key and relaxing to shoot with. He was also very respectful of us wanting privacy because of an unusual situation, and agreed not to include us in online portfolios. We considered several photographers, and are really glad we went with Tony. I'd definitely recommend him, and we'd certainly work with him again if we have occasion to. Thanks!

Jen photographed our wedding. She was responsive and professional. Her photographs were lovely and captured many spectacular organized photos but also amazing candid shots...the kind you always want to get! She warmly fit right into the background of our gathering and was very pleasant to deal with on a personal level. I would highly recommend Jen for anyone looking to hire a photographer for a wedding!

Tanya was one of the easiest/enjoyable photographers to work with. Our original event got rescheduled last minute and Tanya made herself available for our new event date without a fuss. She delivered a handful of photos the day of the event (last minute request) and delivered the remaining photos in a timely matter. Great quality photos. Would recommend.

Leisl is the whole professional package! She was the first photographer to respond to me, extremely communicative, was organized (I had given her a list of shots that I wanted and she had them with her ready to find people) and delivered pictures the very next day. Unbelievably easy to deal with! Best of all, she got all the details of our party and I think a photo of everyone there. Her prices were very reasonable too. She was an amazing find for planning an event 1400 miles away! TY Leisl!

Trevor was very accommodating with our last minute venue change. 2 weeks before our wedding day we found out our venue had been double booked and we had been bumped. Instead of rescheduling our entire wedding we just opted to move it to The Victoria Inn in Hampton. It was nice to know that we could count on Trevor to be accommodating when everything else was turning into such a mess. He even brought a second photographer because of the venue change! The weather was great and the photos he did turned out beautiful! We are very glad we went with him.

When it came time for our wedding, my then fiancé and I were always on the fence about having a video made, not because we didn't want one but because with all the expenses we didn't think we could afford one. Just one month before our wedding day of 6/10/16 I made an executive decision and went to Thumbtack in search of a videographer for our big day. Here I had a few options but ultimately settled on Magic Moments and I couldn't be happier with that decision! Brian from Magic Moments was phenomenal from start to finish including the planning up to our big day and the videos he took and provided us. Brian / Magic Moments were professional, punctual and provided fantastic, quality footage of our wedding day which included both a 5 minute highlight film and 4 hour unedited film both shot it wonderful HD and given to us on Blu-Ray DVDs! Thanks to Magic Moments we have a wonderful, quality video which we can enjoy for years to come! I would absolutely recommend Magic Moments for any videography needs you may have!

I was in search of high quality headshots for upcoming media and public relations activities for my work. I was so happy to find Rum Doodle and John. Appointment setup was a breeze -- John was fast and accommodating. During our meeting, John quickly asked questions to understand my needs and got right to work. The results were exactly what I needed. Options were provided within 24 hours. John was so great to work with and such a talented photographer (displays of his work are beautiful) that I will consider Rum Doodle for any of my photography needs -- family portraits or business events.

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.

How much does it cost for a photographer for a wedding?

Finding the right wedding photographer can make a big difference for your ceremony. Nationally, the average wedding photographer’s price ranges from $800 to $1,000, but costs can be much higher in areas like Chicago, New York or Los Angeles where some couples spend $2,000 to $5,000 or more for the photographer they want. Factors that can affect your wedding photographer prices include the photographer’s reputation and experience. Heavy hitters can command top rates, especially during wedding-season weekends. Day of the week also affects your cost. You may get a $200 discount on wedding photographer prices if you get married on a Friday in November rather than a Saturday in June. Time onsite is also an important cost factor. Hiring a photographer to snap photos from the moment you wake up until after last call at the reception is going to cost more than five hours of pictures during the day. Multiple photographers, special lighting, and videography will also increase your costs. Ultimately you want to find someone who has a style you love and can provide the number of edited shots you want for a price you can handle. Learn more about hiring a wedding photographer.

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. 

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
