I attended a wedding celebration for a friend at The Rhinecliff Hotel. This is where we met Nick from The Best of Both Worlds. The first thing we noticed was the big Photo Booth that our friends and other guests were waiting online for. We took part in the photo booth and we were very pleased with the props, the instant print out of clear pictures and we were amazed on how user friendly Nick's photo booth was. While getting our picture prints I met videographer who was placing a video camera inside the photo booth to record. I was curious to know what this was. The Videographer explained to me that this was an additional service for the groom and bride. Not only would we get our pictures taken, but he was preparing a slow motion video photo booth montage. This footage would be added along with a funny song, uploaded online, and a link would be given to the Groom and Bride to share with all the guests as an extra party favor. I was thrilled with the idea, and I was interested in knowing more about his services. He quickly introduced me to his wife who was the photographer. I turns out that this husband and wife team work with Nick and provide video and photography services. Along with this and the lights, video projectors, Nick does truly have the best of both worlds. We were so please with the entire presentation of my friends Wedding, that my fiancee and I have decided to book Nick and his team for our own wedding and we are also recommending him to 2 friends of ours who will be having birthday celebrations in early 2017. Best of Both Worlds has it all, DJs, Performers, lights, video screens, photo booth, video and photography services all under one umbrella. This certainly makes our life easier when it comes down to booking.

Neil was really easy to work with. He was responsive, a good communicator, asked the right questions and required little direction. He turned me on to a video download service which made life all that much easier. He was professional and friendly and a pleasure to work with. He got the footage in before the deadline and we love the video that he got for us. Permanent spot on our preferred vendor list- thanks Neil!

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!

Mayer created a slide show for me. I only provided about a 2 1/2 week deadline and was on a very tight budget. His price was extremely fair and Mayer delivered ahead of schedule! He incorporated the music and video clips I requested, the pictures I provided were of poor quality but came out great on the slide show. It is absolutely beautiful and I know everybody at our party will love it! I highly recommend Mayer & would contact him again!

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.

We hired Leibman Productions for our daughter's Bat Mitzvah. We were looking for a reliable and creative videographer who would capture the moments most important to us. Andrew covered the event from start to finish and also provided a comprehensive highlight video. The video work was professionally shot and recorded along with music, speeches and voice overs. We also needed a music montage of photos and video created close and they helped us tremendously at the last minute. Thank you Leibman Productions, we appreciate all your time and efforts with this very special family occasion.

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.

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 highly recommend Joel’s services to anyone who is looking for a skilled video professional to capture their special moments. On the evening of my book launch, which was eventful and well attended, Joel was efficient, attentive, and on top of everything that needed to happen in the midst of all the activity. I also appreciated Joel’s timely and detailed communication before, during, and after the event—as well as the fact that he was proactive and approached everything with a healthy dose of creativity balanced against my needs and requests. Given that there was a lot to take in, Joel was clear and focused, and had a wonderful grasp of the big picture and what I was looking for. It was an absolute pleasure, and I would work with him again in a heartbeat.

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.
