Look no further for an outstanding DJ experience. I highly recommend RJC Studios. We hired a DJ, Lights, MC, Party Motivator, and a Photo Booth for my Daughter's Bat Mitzvah. We were able to sign all contracts electronically online, as well as meet the entire team via video conference call. Our MC was outstanding - and was able to keep the party going from start to finish.

Alex was very responsive each time I contacted him. Wa had flown in to NY from California and had to trust that he would follow through...this was for a surprise engagement in central park. Not only was he on time but he also took extra time filming and the final video he provided us was so beautiful. I highly recommend him!

I was in need of a corporate promotional video and hired Ray. He showed up at our location early, quickly taped an video that we did not have scripted, and returned it to me completed on the same day. He made everyone feel at ease and knew what questions to ask to make an exceptional video for our organization. I highly recommend Lorray Digital Media for your projects!

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!

After posting my (unorthodox) request to Thumbtack, I received a call from Chris within minutes. He presented himself professionally and personable, two things that were important to me due to the nature of the event - a surprise wedding. It was a small affair with 8 people (including Chris) where the groom was completely unaware he was about to get a wedding ceremony and reception put together by his friends (the couple was already married, but did so in a different state on short notice of being engaged so no local friends were able to make it to the wedding, hence a surprise wedding with his closest and local friends). Chris took quick to making great suggestions for the event and worked with us to make sure we captured each moment beautifully. He came prepared, on time, in appropriate attire, with expertise, and a smile. He clearly loves his work, and it shows in the product. Due to the intimate nature of the event, Chris integrated well with the small but diverse group of people, being chatty and comfortable but on point and out of the way when appropriate. He was also knowledgeable and knew important aspects of New York law regarding lighting and standing tripod lights. This kept us from getting in any legal trouble while at the public park in DUMBO, Brooklyn. Chris was also willing to work with us with regard to operating my DSLR camera mounted on a tripod to capture video as he went around taking photos. Editing, delivery, and response time. Chris was able to get back to me most often within minutes of any request, always quick with a confirmation and didn't pester me with constant contact. The turnaround time was fantastic, ten (10) days after the event we have the photos edited and delivered in full, this is also during a holiday weekend. Very impressed with the turnaround given both the holiday and the time of year, I expect he was busy with other clients as well as us. All summed up, positive experience, beautiful photos, professionally presented, no issues with delivery or "holding photos hostage for a higher fee", appropriately priced, and made us all very happy with our decision to hire Chris Waggoner, highly recommend!

KC was awesome. We decided last minute to get my sister a videographer for her wedding to surprise her. KC gave us an unbelievable deal and the videos were amazing. The short video clip was way beyond our expectation. I haven't seen the full video yet but my sister said it was great. She is so happy she can relive the day over and over. Thank you KC. We will reach out any time we need a videographer and we will let others know about you.

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 hired Salah for my wife's 30th birthday - he was fantastic. He was easy to work with and very friendly with all our guests. He was kind enough to join us the entire day of photography that took place in Paramus, NJ and all over Manhattan, NY. Salah is very easy going and provides quality work. He provided all the picture at the end of our event, which was awesome. Salah also provided a small video clip of our event - I would certainly recommend him for both photography and videography. Thanks Salah for capturing our event :)

We could not have gotten a better photographer for our wedding. At first we were hesitant because he is based from Florida but he traveled here to meet before the wedding. He answered our million questions and worked with our budget. Miguel and his team made us feel so comfortable throughout the whole process. Everyone that got in front of his camera felt like top models. He directed us so well on how to pose. If you book him and his team for your event, you will be glad you did. Excited to see the photographs and video. Miguel has great artistic vision and you can see that he genuinely loves what he does.

Beautiful work, 5 stars, and when I say beautiful work I mean not only the video itself (which was wayyyy beyond my expectations of a wedding cinematographer), but also the experience of shooting it, which was very mild, pleasant, and flow-y. Rom made us feel so natural and comfortable, nothing too posed or stiff, and was able to catch some gorgeous footage. In love with this video!!

Every Time I See the Video by GetMeOnTop on My Website I'm Still Like, WOWÉ I've got to say, shooting a video for my business was like a surreal experience. I never dreamed of the day that I would have a team of professional video makers come to my home office and video me about what it is I do and about the products I design. Having a small business that I operate out of my home somewhat limits me in terms of what I can afford when it comes to business marketing. I never imagined that making informational videos would be one of my options, but GetMeOnTop NY SEO company made it possible. When I happened upon an article about their video making services supplied through Turnhere, I was shocked at the pricing packages and their affordability and that they could actually help in getting you to be #1 in Google.. Every time I see the video by GetMeOnTop on my website I'm still like, WOWÉthis is real! I have an awesome looking video on my site. I've had customers and clients comment on the quality of the video too. It gives my site a level of professionalism that can only be achieved by streaming videos. I'm so happy with the new web traffic I'm getting too; I've gotten more phone calls about my designs in the last couple of months and more emails than I've ever gotten. Since GetMeOnTop did the SEO magic to the video, it has proven more successful than the other types of advertising I use on a regular basis. Since IÕve found Getmeontop's Turnhere services so outstanding, I'm now talking with them about some additional SEO, search engine optimization services too. I know it will be worth my hard earned dollars; the success of my new video is a testament to that fact GetMeOnTop can indeed get you on top of Google.

Joseph Remmert is a hard-working and talented professional, who offers a great service at a competitive price. From start to finish, he was extremely responsive and flexible, which iwas needed as a small business owner with unpredictable availability. Despite being a small company, Joseph treated us as though we were a much larger client, devoting himself entirely to our project and continuously making sure that we were satisfied with the process, as well as adjusting easily to our last minute changes and issues. His attention to detail and skill as both a photographer and editor allowed us to rebuild and streamline our entire online image, shooting clean, polished promotional videos and capture professional photos of our workshop and employees, helping create a better company image for customers to identify. For any small businesses looking to hire a professional for video work and photo work, I would recommend reaching out to Joseph Remmert.

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.
