Working with Neil Blake was a wonderful experience! If he wasnt by my side he was interviewing a guest or filming every event at party. He was pleasant and professional and a joy to converse with. My guest enjoyed being filmed and his courteous demeanor made them want to prance for the camera making them feel like the star for the moment while still making me SHINE as the main attraction and the results are proof. I can only wish and insist that others get to experience the care and excellent quality of a true professional like that of which l found in Mr. Neil Blake☺

We are a wedding photo and video company and have hired J&J several times for wedding drone coverage. They are extremely responsive and attentive to our needs. They have extensive knowledge of drone laws and were able to secure permission to fly from the appropriate air traffic control towers when necessary. Truly went above and beyond in terms of service on the day of the wedding, getting all the footage we asked for - and then some! Always delivers files immediately. They work hard and have a extremely good communication with clients. Definitely recommend then, and will continue using them in the future!

Bin did an excellent job as our videographer for our son's Christening. We were very happy with the results. In addition, she also took several pictures of our family when she was not using the video camera. She has a great eye-- spent a significant amount of time making sure the pictures were the best quality. Guests commented to us that the photographer really spent a lot of time getting great pictures. Bin is dependable and easy to reach. She is also very personable and is a pleasure to work with!

We wanted to quickly resolve any awkwardness our guests might feel at our same sex wedding, and we were lucky enough to find the right solutions with East Coast Productions. DJ Jeff was sensitive to our concerns, had great ideas to bring our guests together quickly, had a great music selection, used lights and large video screens throughout the night. And people danced all night -- we disco'd and rocked, we followed Jeff and his younger DJ through a line dance, and even had a sing along with Garth Brooks! We had the time of our lives, and all of our guests are still bragging about the fabulous night they had! These two DJs interacted well with our guests, looked great, were very professional, and were really fun! And they were easy to work with. I can't thank them enough for making our wedding day such a wonderful success! I highly recommend East Coast Productions for any party!

I'm in San Diego and needed a doctor's interview filmed in the NYC area, and for the videographer to also direct and handle (on his own), the interview with 9 or so questions provided. I choose Mayer because he is professional, thorough, and most important, an experienced videographer - all important when filming a professional like a doctor. Mayer's footage was exactly what I needed to edit with, and he was patient and helpful when filming the doctor. In fact, I've just hired him again, to film another Doctor's interview in the NYC area!

I started an event planning company recently and needed to hire a video guy for my first event, after reviewing many matches on Thumbtack, I came across KC. I saw his previous work and liked it and he also worked with me on a price that I could afford. He showed up on time and even covered for my photographer that didn't show up. He snapped a few complimentary pictures for me even though he was only hired to do the video. He worked with me on the editing and did a great job catering to our needs. Would def use KC again.

We loved the lights and video screens that they had set up. My family and friends are still talking about how great the party was. Thanks Mike and MB2 Entertainment.

I would highly recommend Anton to everyone. He really did a great job for filming my wedding at Oct. He got to the venue early to film the preparation, and filmed a lot of beautiful details that me and my guests didn't even pay much attention. He and his assistance worked entire time from ceremony to the end of receptions. I can see him everywhere. After the wedding, he quickly provided me the highlight (in a day!) and modified quickly based on my requests. The highlight turned out amazing! I couldn't believe he captured so many small, but touching and beautiful moments. He made the highlight like a mini movie! All family members, friends, my hubby and myself are supper impressed by the highlight. Compared the price I paid with the service I got, Anton is the most valuable vendor amount all the vendors I hired for the wedding! He is definitely above my expectation! I will definitely go back to him for my next important event (new born etc)!

Cristian and his team provided amazing photography and video services for our wedding. We were pleasantly surprised that he was able to give us a few select pics the same night of our wedding so we could share with our family and friends. The videos and pics were very artistic and captured our special day beautifully! And the presentation of the final package of videos and pics was top notch. I would highly recommend Cine Marvel Films. -Sheila Brooklyn, NY

Tommy was the videographer for both my engagement party & my wedding. He is AMAZING!!! I couldn't have been happier with his finished product. He is the new *IT guy when it comes to wedding videos, his new modern tecqunique stands out for any other video I have seen before, it's more like a movie/ music video. He made sure to capture the moments that meant the most to me, I received a million comliments on my wedding video as Well as my engagement video. If you want someone fresh, modern and different work with Vengo films! You will be thrilled with your video. My brother will be hiring tommy for his wedding video in NYC this summer, We cannot wait to see the end result. I highly reccomend hiring vengo films for your next event!

I hired Lemar for a surprise engagement at the Rockefeller centre in NYC. Lemar was so great. He made the occasion so easy and was amazing to work with. He had already scoped the area we were shooting in and had placing in mind for us to shoot after he event too. This gave me peace of mind on the day which was already very high pressured and important to be just right. He provided great high quality photos and video of the event. I am so happy with his work. I highly recommend this man. He is an artist and truly a nice guy too. Thanks Lemar!

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.  
Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
