I cannot say enough good things about Mary and Ali! I'm so glad we hired them for our wedding photography. They couldn't have been more professional, they arrived before time, and literally captured every single moment of our big day. Mary and Ali work wonderfully together. They are very friendly and go above and beyond to make you happy. They were also very efficient in editing all the photos and getting them to us. I would definitely hire them again should I need a photographer in the future. Thank you so much!

Maria took some amazing photos at our wedding dinner. She was there early and stayed longer than we expected. It was a tight space but Maria still managed to get great photos of our family and friends. She also has reasonable rates. I highly recommend her for your next event! I will certainly be calling her next time I need a quality photographer. Thank you, Maria!

I am SO lucky to have found Cheyanna through Thumbtack! She was not only a joy to work with (very responsive, warm, thoughtful and professional) and a reasonable price - her work is really, truly beautiful. Such a strong sensibility - candid, visceral, organic shots. I really love how our photos turned out and can't wait to share them with everyone. Thank you for making wedding photography such a lovely, stress-free experience Cheyanna! We'd recommend you again and again. XO

Bin was fantastic. I hired her for our wedding rehearsal dinner fairly last-minute, and it could not have worked any better. She took great photographs and produced great edits, was very punctual and professional, and everyone spoke very highly of her at the rehearsal dinner. This was my first experience with Thumbtack. My wife and I hired a separate wedding photographer, but I wanted something less formal for the rehearsal dinner. I had a quick chat with Bin beforehand and asked her to focus on natural/candid shots since we had much more formal photos planned for the next day. Bin blew away expectations and fit the bill perfectly. Thanks again!

We recently had my wedding on 03/09/2018. Anthony was AMAZING. He made us feel extremely comfortable at every point from our first meeting to the end of our night. He knew better than we did how to organize our day, and he catered to our guests dancing preferences like he knew everyone personally. He played bachata, salsa, and today’s hits and just had everyone on their feet. Beyond grateful to have had Anthony with us throughout the night. I would highly recommend him! Thanks again Anthony!

Nick our photographer is very kind and professional. Polite and on time. After one interview we knew we would use Odessa Wedding Photography for our wedding. Nick is very knowledgeable and has a spirit for the job. He captured all the shots he explained he would get and went above and beyond our expectations. He is extremely professional and so much fun to be with. He made everyone at our wedding wonder where we found such a good photographer and he will be getting any future business from us and a lot of our guests. He manged to capture so many beautiful memories for us and I barely noticed him maneuvering through the crowd. Thank you so much Nick for being such an important part of our blessed day.

FABULOUS! I used FG Photography for my wedding which was an intimate family event (temple and city hall) and selected them solely based on the bid response sent via Thumbtack. They (Fernando and Roge) are without a doubt, highly talented and their work speaks for itself. What sets them apart is their professionalism and personalization. I needed to select a vendor quickly and had shortlisted a couple. They responded to my bid and subsequent questions quickly and professionally. They were patient and non-pressuring and allowed me to go through my decision making process and supplied me with the information I needed. When I spoke to them, my decision was instant – They were easy to communicate with, knowledgeable, and understood what I was looking for. I just got a very comfortable feeling so I booked them during that call. Once booked, they were in regular touch as we did the planning on the phone and over text due to my schedule. They were on time on both events and what a joy it was to meet them – they were warm and fun and easy to work with. They captured the events beautifully and everyone had fun having their pictures taken. The response to the pictures has been phenomenal and I have shared their details to people that have asked. I would recommend them in a heartbeat – they were instrumental in making our wedding day memorable!!!

We are so grateful to have found Mark. His wedding video artistry gave us the best ugly cry when we watched our highlight video! He could not have been easier or more lovely to work with. He blended into the backdrop, popped out at the right time to queue us and self managed throughout the day. We love our video. Book Mark for your special day- you will not be sorry. Thanks Mark, appreciate all you did, Dana & Sean

My husband and I hired Deva to be our wedding photographer. We couldn’t be happier with how our wedding photos came out. They were gorgeous! She made us look great! My first impression of Deva is friendly, warm, and dependable. Prior to our wedding, Deva spent time visualizing our special day by surveying the place of ceremony, reception venue, plus helping us find charming spots for our wedding portraits. And on the wedding day, in spite of the heat and humidity Deva worked really hard for us. Our guests commented how professional and dedicated Deva was. Deva also shot our beautiful engagement portraits. She went above and beyond to make sure we had a wide variety of poses/backdrops to choose from and that the lighting for each shot was perfect. We had a lot of fun during our engagement photo shoot! All we can say is we loved working with Deva and we love her work!

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.

It is hard to put into words how talented Joe is but I will try my very best. Keyz 2 Life was recommended to me by a friend for my wedding. On short notice, he stepped into my life as a photographer and left as a friend. Joe jumped in with both feet and left everyone amazed by his skill, professionalism, personality and attention to time and detail. My day ran smoothly and he just shot as the day moved on. My wedding pictures were so natural, emotional and honest! I show them off any chance I can get! I will be using Keyz 2 Life for any life event that I want documented by photo.

From start to finish Michael Oliver was incredible. We hired him on short notice for our destination wedding in Orlando. His prices were very reasonable for the quality of his work. He is a true artist and his photographs speak for themselves. When he was onsite, he showed up early and made sure to work with us to capture every aspect that was important to us. We had a challenging environment for him to work him but he adapted so well and made himself invisible. He makes his work look so effortless. I literally had no idea that he captured such amazing shots at the time. He came up with really creative ideas on the spot and gave us a gift we will cherish forever. Every time someone looks at our pictures that often comment that they look like they are right out of a wedding magazine. I told Michael and I still stand by it, out of all the vendors we hired for our wedding, he was by far the best decision we made.

Vengo Films was exactly what we were looking for! Quality that blows you away. Vengo has a unique style. It’s more cinematography than videography. So artsy and refreshing. His style just spoke to us. Thomas is very professional and has a great personality. He knows what he’s doing and makes people feel comfortable. He was never too much, or too bossy or demanding. He did his majicin such an uninvasive way. We are really lucky to have found Vengo Films! Thank you, Thomas! Yulia & John 3.30.18 wedding

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.
