Neil Blake filmed my daughter's baby shower at 59th Street & Madison Avenue, New York, NY. He was extremely personable, friendly, and outgoing! While it is customary for many videographers to ask guests to say a few words, Neil asked the guests pointed questions which made the guests very relaxed about answering. He was constantly moving around and capturing soooo many special memories from that extremely special day! I would definitely recommend him and hire him again!

John filmed our wedding/reception and did an amazing job! I really wanted video to remember our day but didn't want to see cameras in the way of everything, blocking our guests view. John and his crew did an outstanding job of staying "behind the scenes" yet still captured the entire day and night so perfectly!! The video that John made for us is about 2 hours worth of the best footage with original sound. I love that he had guests at our wedding give video messages and that he included them in the video, mixing them in throughout. Both sound and picture are very high quality. John was very easy to communicate and work with from start to finish. I would highly recommend him for any wedding or event!

We hired Bin Song to photograph our wedding, and we just got the Wedding Album she created. All I can say is Wow! Rarely does something exceed my expectations but the Album she gave us did just that. The whole wedding is kind of a blur with all the planing and pressure. When we got Bin Song’s album it put everything in focus. Not only were her photos beautiful and professional, but the layout was creative and exciting. The whole day was laid out in order, and the pictures were so professional that I forgot I was actually looking at my own wedding. I highly recommend including an Album when booking her.

Mark was an exceptional videographer for our wedding. He arrived before our wedding ceremony began and stayed until the end of our reception. You honestly could not tell that he was there because he was extremely inconspicuous throughout the day. He produced a high quality long and short video of the best day of our lives. Mark even edited the short video based on our preference to add our wedding vows and the cake cutting. He did this without hesitation or opposition. I would most definitely recommend using Mark as your videographer for any special event of your life. He will capture the important highlights throughout the event and provide a high quality video. Thank you Mark! Lisette & Dwayne

We hired Mayer to video our wedding at Stroudsmoor. He was so pleasant and accommodating - he filmed our home the ceremony and reception. Mayor made sure he filmed ever part of the day especially things that mattered to the bride and groom - really went beyond expectations. If you don't hire Mayor for your special day - you missed out!!

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.

JUNE 30, 2015 was our wedding day, not only that but it was the celebration of our 8 year anniversary with our closest friends and family.

We enjoyed working with him and he's so easy going. We can't wait to see all of the photos!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH RAUL.

Anton was the perfect choice as videographer for our wedding! The video quality is incredible! Anton was not just on time, he was early and started filming right away! We have so much amazing footage of our big day and we are just so glad we made the choice to hire Anton! We are so excited to keep watching the footage to see new things and relive this amazing day. Anton was a complete professional. We barely saw him throughout the night yet he seemed to be everywhere getting footage of everything. He was extremely happy, pleasant, and positive and such a joy to work with. He did his job with such ease and kept us calm and collected and without any worries about our video. We knew we could put our trust in him and he went above and beyond. We cannot recommend Anton enough to anyone looking for a videographer. His work is excellent and you will absolutely not be disappointed. Thank you so much, Anton!! -Sean & Jeremy

Thank you MANNA production for the amazing video! We have watched the video with our family and friends countless times. It is really amazing to be able to relive our special day all over again! For future brides and grooms who are hesitating about doing a wedding video, do it!! Pictures cannot capture emotions as well as videos! We are so glad we worked with mingi from manna production. He is so professional and really knows what he is doing! The editing, music, and the flow of the video was perfect. He was able to capture all the special moments of our wedding. Choosing him for our wedding videography was one of the best decision we made!

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.
