John was amazing & truly captured my event effortlessly through his lens! I decided to hire West End Video after comparing their rates and reviews to the competitors on Thumbtack who applied for the job. Initially, I thought to myself, " Is "West End Videos" really as good as the reviews are claiming?!?" To our pleasant surprise, John of "West End Videos" more than exceeded our expectations. To put the icing on the cake, John was extremely accommodating and also one of the nicest people you will ever meet. Prior to the event he made himself available via email and phone so that we could discuss the vision of the event in detail. He was highly professional & understood all our needs. On the day of the event, John arrived 1/2 hr early to and jumped immediately into action! Our event was huge, hosting over 3,000 people but amazingly, John was always in the right place, at the right time, he always seemed capture exactly what we wanted! Finding a videographer & photographer that truly captures the accurate tone through pictures can be difficult but John really allowed the camera to tell the story! If you decide to work with him you are guaranteed to be pleased!

I needed a videographer for an out of town meeting. I posted my inquiry at this site. Lorray responded quickly and was available for my questions right away. I got exemplary service and could not be more pleased with my experience. They were a real pleasure to work with. They delivered a high quality product for a great price in my very short timeframe. It doesn't get any better.

Bin videoed my daughter's Bat Mitzvah. She was professional and pleasant, but I was worried that the video wouldn't be excellent quality because of the low light in the venue. Bin repeatedly asked to have the lights turned up and happily the video turned out nicely. My only real complaint is that Bin was more of an observer versus other videographers who tend to get people excited to be on camera.

Spike took our Engagement photos in Central Park last week, and the experience couldn’t be any better! We originally had a different date and plan in mind. But Spike was flexible and accommodated the changes in our plan. During the day of the shoot, Spike made us very relaxed. We felt at ease with his presence. He gave us directions on poses, but made sure we were comfortable with them. Spike also knows the park well, taking us to a number of his favorite locations. He was also open to our suggestions on shooting locations. We received the photos within a week of our shoot. My fiancée and I are very happy with them. They look amazing and I’m sure the photos will be our treasured memories in the years to come. One last note, we’ve reached out to a number of photographers, both on Thumbtack and elsewhere. Spike’s rate was very reasonable, especially more so now that we’ve received the photos and gone through the experience. Overall, I would not hesitate to recommend Spike for your photo needs!

Thumbtack was very responsive to my request for a videographer. I received several qualified individuals. I am a visual person, and I was impressed with Mayer's website, his experience, and his prices as they stepped up with additional services as requested. Mayer did his due diligence in searching out for information related to my project even before I emailed it to him. Thank you all whom responded to my request. I have no doubt all of you are more than qualified in your profession.

We can't say enough about the incredible job that Kal did with our Wedding Video. His attention to detail was phenomenal. When we asked for him to be sure he'd get all the big moments, he said he would do that and much more and in the end, he exceeded our expectations by a mile (and then some!). He arrived early to get great shots of the venue, got all of the 'must have' moments (along with candid footage), incorporated some photos into the video and let us choose the music, which played to transition to different scenes and as a backdrop to the photo montage. He used the music so creatively and wisely. We've watched the video numerous times now and enjoy it just as much as we were watching it for the very first time. We gave copies to our family members too and they gave the same rave reviews! In a word: AMAZING! We would hire KC Kreative Arts again in a minute and glad that he was our first choice in Videographers and will be our only choice in the future. Kal was prompt to answer every email, professional throughout the process and delivered as promised, on every request and commitment. Let him capture your event, so you can relive and enjoy it for years to come. Thanks again for making our BIG day that much more memorable! Sincerely, Kathy and Tony

I asked Thumbtack for videography for a wedding and Crisitian was the first to reply with the cheapest offer. He also included a lot of service for the price he asked. We were sceptical at first because we never hired videographer before and know nothing about it but Cristian reassured us that everything will be perfect and we had nothing to worry about. He was very easy to communicate with, very responsive and polite. He contacted me few days prior the event to talk out last minute details. On the day, he arrived even earlier what made me feel less nervous on my big day. It was so easy to work with him, he made me understand that he is true proffesional in the work he does. I was wondering what I had to do for the video but Cristian explaied to me crealrly and showed examples which also made it easier for us. Cristian also had no problem staying longer for the event. I love his work, style and the fact that he usues most recent and best quality equipment necessery for best photogrpahy and videography. The best part is that we do not have to wait long to recieve pictures and video! As we are all so excited to see them, Cristian had couple of them ready the next day! I had a lot of complements and good comments about the photos Cristian made! I will absolutely hire his again and again for my future events and will recommend him to anyone who is looking for great quality, friendly open environemt in communication and inexpensive ! Thank you so so much! You trully made our day easier, I did not have to worry about anything and because of your work we have such great captured moments for the rest of our lives ! Thank you again! Best, Anna and David October 2016.

We made a last minute decision to make a multi-camera (3) HD Video of the final USA Tour performance in NYC of a new Cuban Act called The Habana Boys. After a brief internet search, I found a list of several NYC-based videographers who specialize in working with the arts. This show involves singing in multiple genres, choreography, and live musicians. I sent a mass email out and not only was Howard Silver's Arts Into Production the first response, the fee he was proposing was 1/2 of some, and only matched by one of 9 other responses we received within the next 24 hours, and after we already agreed with Howard. Turns out if was an excellent decision. Howard is so responsive that he shared the first 10 minutes of the edited footage by Midnight following a matinee performance, and we had the full 90 minute video within 5 days (A day sooner than promised). About the shoot: the angles he chose, and the way he edited the footage, makes it possible for us to market this new production more professionally, and we are confident that the modest expense will pay for itself in terms of increased interest, and possibly generating increased fees as presenting organizations will immediately recognize that they will have a better tool to market the show themselves. Please do not hesitate to call, or email me for further clarification. Sincerely, Eric Amada Arts Management Associates 267.738.0000 (West Coast) eric@ama.bz

SEO Videos from GetMeOnTop, I Knew That My problems Were About to be Solved! I'm all about the numbers. I took the time to check out video viewing statistics as I was considering putting video on my site. I was well aware that over fifty percent of video viewers respond to calls to action when they watch a good video and I wanted to take full advantage of that advertising power. I wanted to increase the opt INS on my website and sell more product, I knew that video would be the perfect way to do just that. I had some experience making videos, but I was lacking in the knowledge on how to truly market it with any kind of serious success. When I learned about top ranked SEO videos from GetMeOnTop, I knew that my problems were about to be solved. There video marketing solutions are pure genius. Not only did GetMeOnTop offer to make me a fully customized video to showcase what my business has to offer, but they offered me targeted website promotion and SEO services to increase my web traffic, to intensify interest in my business offerings and Get me on top of Google. They have in house videographers that know precisely what it takes to make a video, get in ranked on to show up on the top of the search engines and target it to my website audience attractively. They sent the video professional right to my business in Florida, and we shot the film needed right on site. When I saw the customized video after its completion the following week, I was delighted! It didn't look like some shabby homemade video you might find on a video site: it was a perfectly streamed, colorful advertisement for my business. I couldn't have gotten better video if I had hired a film director to handle the job. And my website has been selling about 50% more products. It's very nice to Google what we sell and see our video show up in the #1 Google position!

My experience with Art Contra was exactly what it should be when dealing with a photographer/videographer -- knowledgeable, professional, and well-prepared. Whether on site or at their studio location, they we're extremely well-prepared and up to the task of not only sticking to the plan, but they were also nimble enough to make adjustments along the way to fit my needs. Will not only recommend, but mostly likely will contact them again in the future as well for more projects. Art Contra Studio is an asset to Thumbtack.

My husband and I booked Tim as our wedding videographer about two weeks before our wedding due to other arrangements falling through. It ended up being a blessing because Tim was so excellent to work with! Right from the beginning he was quick responding to emails and scheduled a phone call to discuss details about our wedding. We instantly knew we would be in good hands. On our wedding day itself, he was prompt, friendly and incredibly professional! That's not even to mention the quality of the video the provided to us afterward. We had all the edited videos and raw footage 6 weeks after the wedding and we happily lived through all the moments and it brought tears to our eyes. I would HIGHLY recommend Tim to family, friends or strangers! Hiring Tim was an incredibly fortunate finding and we couldn't thank him enough.

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.
