Mary Photography was amazing! Mary and he partner are all about the quality of their work and it definitely showed! They were so knowledgeable about photography, very easy to talk to, puncual and just a great team to work with. Our wedding was not the normal wedding ceremony you would expect, but they handled it with ease and optimism and got some amazing shots. I would recommend them to anyone who asks! You will not be disappointed!

Harris was absolutely FANTASTIC! My wife and I set out looking for a wedding officiant who could inject just the right amount of humor into our ceremony. We wanted someone who would make our families cry when serious, but also laugh. The key was to have the funny parts be specific to us, not just having a bunch of generic wedding jokes. Harris delivered this perfectly. We were married in NY but we live in FL. We had an initial phone interview with Harris and he seemed like a nice guy. We had considered a few other officiants but ultimately chose him. He had shown us a few excerpts from other ceremonies he did and we realized he was the perfect choice. On one of our trips up to NY we met with Harris for about an hour where he got to know us a bit better and he used this conversation to customize our ceremony script. He provided us with the script ahead of the wedding, and upon reading it, I knew everyone would love it. On the day of the wedding Harris showed up well dressed and early. He delivered the ceremony just the way we had expected it and had everyone unexpectedly laughing. During the cocktail hour I had a number of guests tell me how much they enjoyed the ceremony! Harris – thank you again for such a great experience. This was definitely a highlight of the day and we’ll remember it forever!

Maria Vullo captured the high points, the small details and the dancing fervor of my daughter’s wedding reception. When we first looked through the images she provided, my daughter wondered aloud how Maria could have been in so many places at once. Lighting conditions were tricky, which could be seen in photos we were sent by friends. Maria handled the light conditions and the entire night as the professional she is. Maria was a pleasure to work with and I would definitely hire her again.

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

Peter has taken the wedding party for my son, Michael and his wife, Fate, to a highest level that anyone could ever imagine. He paid attention to all details from the moment he walked into our house to set up the food stations, the bar stations and the kitchen where he and Jennifer, his assistant, worked. The food he cooked were very creative and beautiful and his staffs were so good in learning how to say the names of our Vietnamese and Filipino food. I strongly recommend Peter to any parties, whether for a wedding event, or home dinner. Thank you, Peter, you are the greatest (may be Momofuku should pay attention to the next Pork Belly bun with Kim Chi). Best regards, Kim

One of the best choice I made for my wedding was having Ross as an officiant! He met with us on numerous occasions to make sure every last detail would be perfect. He made the ceremony a one of a kind experience for everyone. It was both personal and funny, while maintaining the utmost professionalism. It was an incredible experience to have Ross officiate for us!!

Clarissa was incredibly professional and offers a top-notch service at reasonable prices. I posted my job and Clarissa was the first person to email me. She provided me with her Instagram user name and my friend and I were quickly convinced of her prowess. About twenty other proposals later, she was still the most competitive offer. We arranged the time and she showed up early and brought all of her own equipment. She cleaned everything after using it and had plenty of expertise. I have acne scarring and she did a fantastic job covering that up. She was done with me in under an hour and it ended up looking exactly the way I wanted with very little direction given at all. I would highly recommend her!

Andrew was creative, thoughtful, and professional throughout the entire wedding day which enhanced everything the photographers were doing and allows us to share treasured memories. He was very energetic and had unique ideas that really stuck out in the final film production. On top of that, his editing skills were excellent and our "highlight video" was truly amazing. I would recommend him hands down for any wedding or event you have meticulously planned.

I ordered a photo booth for my best friends wedding and it was so much fun! The attendant was very nice as well as the fun props and high quality prints that are now on my fridge. I've recommended Garden State to various friends and everyone always loved it. I've also done a Glamour photo session with Marina which was an absolutely fabulous experience. She had a makeup/hairstylist person and we shot several different outfits and many poses. She made me feel very comfortable, beautiful and relaxed. In general dealing with Vlad or Marina is a great pleasure! I highly recommend Garden State Photo Studio!

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.

Michael is incredibly professional, and I highly recommend him! We needed a photo for our wedding invitation. He picked a great spot in St.Pete that offered us a lot of backgrounds to choose from. He let us be completely natural with each other, took over a hundred pictures, and had them ready the very next day! Our only problem is choosing a picture, there's so many that we like! I've already gotten several complements from family and friends. You won't be disappointed!

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.

What is a wedding planner?

A wedding planner is a professional service provider whose job it is to organize and execute all the details of a couple’s wedding. A wedding planner can be contracted at any stage in the wedding planning process to help to any degree the couple is willing to pay for. Wedding planning is similar to event planning in that a planning team handles the coordination of multiple wedding elements including catering, venue, guests, entertainment, decor, transportation and more. Anyone who has ever been involved in a wedding can confirm that wedding planning is hard work. Experience brings wisdom when it comes to avoiding or resolving day-of challenges. There is no legal regulatory body that oversees or certifies wedding planning as an industry. Anyone who chooses can call themselves a wedding planner. When looking for a wedding planner, be sure to read reviews, and make smart hiring decisions by asking about licenses and insurance.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
