Nick was great and had an amazing personality and the photo booth was a real hit at my wedding!!!!! the photographer who took my photos did a good job except missing some personal ones needed for a wedding day....otherwise it was a good deal for the price.

Mary and her assistant were outstanding. We could not have asked for a better and more professional wedding photography experience. They met with us prior to the wedding at our wedding location. On the day of the wedding they showed up early and stayed late. They took over 800 photos and captured every moment, big and small. They made both us and our 120 guests feel at ease, and documented everything without ever getting in the way. I enthusiastically recommend them to anyone looking to photograph their event, and will call them again if I have the opportunity.

Maria took some amazing photos at our wedding dinner. She was there early and stayed longer than we expected. It was a tight space but Maria still managed to get great photos of our family and friends. She also has reasonable rates. I highly recommend her for your next event! I will certainly be calling her next time I need a quality photographer. Thank you, Maria!

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!

Bin was fantastic. I hired her for our wedding rehearsal dinner fairly last-minute, and it could not have worked any better. She took great photographs and produced great edits, was very punctual and professional, and everyone spoke very highly of her at the rehearsal dinner. This was my first experience with Thumbtack. My wife and I hired a separate wedding photographer, but I wanted something less formal for the rehearsal dinner. I had a quick chat with Bin beforehand and asked her to focus on natural/candid shots since we had much more formal photos planned for the next day. Bin blew away expectations and fit the bill perfectly. Thanks again!

We booked our July 2016 wedding with Anthony from SuperSounds DJs and our experience with him from day one was exceptional! He was recommended to us by a family member. First we had a consultation and told him exactly what we wanted and he recommended lights as an enhancement. His prices were very reasonable compared to other vendors we priced. He sent us information sheets to fill out regarding the type of music we wanted, including particular songs. There was one song we wanted modified so we could use it as our introduction song. Anthony edited the song to make it work and had the timing down perfectly so that we walked in during the chorus like we wanted to. He also had to set up for an outdoor ceremony, an indoor cocktail hour and then the reception. He did this all flawlessly. His song selections during the reception had the dance floor full all night. It was really something to see. We had so many guests compliment Anthony and the music he played. One friend posted on social media that she couldn't remember the last time she danced so much. He also took special requests from guests and his mix of slow and fast songs kept the mood of the evening just right. He was right about the lights too, it added something special. We highly recommend using SuperSounds DJs. Anthony was very professional and personable and easy to deal with. He always got back to us quickly when we emailed or texted him with questions. We give him two thumbs up! Anthony & Angela

I have so many great things to say about this awesome couple who took the best moments through photography on my wedding day. When we first had our meeting, we already felt comfortable with roge and fernando and i was really blown away by their portfolio. They're very reasonable too! On the day of my wedding, they told me and my husband to just be ourselves and i can't believe that that advice brought out the best pictures! When roge told me the next day that she sent me around 60 wow pictures, all i can say is that tears started to roll down my eyes on the 3rd picture because of so much joy to be able to look back on my wedding the day before. Both of them didn't feel like our photographer but part of our family. Both very professional and easy to work this. I highly recommend warm up lab for any occasion you need to be captured!!!!!!

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

Kalel did a great job videoing our wedding. We decided last minute to have a videographer because my grandparents weren't going to be able to make it to the wedding. Kalel was very responsive, on time to the event, and we didn't even notice him during the ceremony. We received the DVD 2 weeks later and the footage is beautiful. I couldn't stop smiling as I watched.

My husband and I hired Deva to be our wedding photographer. We couldn’t be happier with how our wedding photos came out. They were gorgeous! She made us look great! My first impression of Deva is friendly, warm, and dependable. Prior to our wedding, Deva spent time visualizing our special day by surveying the place of ceremony, reception venue, plus helping us find charming spots for our wedding portraits. And on the wedding day, in spite of the heat and humidity Deva worked really hard for us. Our guests commented how professional and dedicated Deva was. Deva also shot our beautiful engagement portraits. She went above and beyond to make sure we had a wide variety of poses/backdrops to choose from and that the lighting for each shot was perfect. We had a lot of fun during our engagement photo shoot! All we can say is we loved working with Deva and we love her work!

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.

From start to finish Michael Oliver was incredible. We hired him on short notice for our destination wedding in Orlando. His prices were very reasonable for the quality of his work. He is a true artist and his photographs speak for themselves. When he was onsite, he showed up early and made sure to work with us to capture every aspect that was important to us. We had a challenging environment for him to work him but he adapted so well and made himself invisible. He makes his work look so effortless. I literally had no idea that he captured such amazing shots at the time. He came up with really creative ideas on the spot and gave us a gift we will cherish forever. Every time someone looks at our pictures that often comment that they look like they are right out of a wedding magazine. I told Michael and I still stand by it, out of all the vendors we hired for our wedding, he was by far the best decision we made.

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.

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.

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.
