Fantastic service. As we lived in New Zealand everything was done over email. We first seen Harris in person on the day of the wedding 15minutes before it took place. Very professional and felt as if we had known him for years. Would recommend to anybody. Harris is your man.

Jon took our wedding pictures on Saturday, April 7th. He showed up early and scouted out the area for the best possible pictures. He captured and took over 320 great pics in just 2 hours. He was able to get lots of us, all 40 of our guests and a great mix of candid and fun shots. We have great indoor and outdoor shots and couldn't believe how fast he got us the pics. We had them in our email within 24 hours. He was polite, easy going and very affordable. We couldn't have asked for a better photographer. Cheers, Artie & Belle

My husband and I are so thankful for DJ Byrd and his work! He was our DJ for our wedding this past September and he was AMAZING! He had everyone grooving to the music even before the actual "dancing music" started - from the cocktail hour and through dinner, DJ Byrd had all us jamming! And I believe this is because, from when we first met and spoke on the phone, he cared to ask and attend to exactly what kind of music I/my husband/guests enjoy. I sent him playlists of the songs we wanted for the cocktail hour, during dinner, and dancing and he did so well playing what we all loved! It was clear when we first met that he has much experience and knows what he's doing. Leading up to the wedding, we spoke a few times on the phone about how I wanted the flow of the reception to go and it could not have gone better - I didn't have to worry about a thing. He is organized and comes well prepared- he had everyone's name in my bridal party rehearsed so that announcing their names/order of how they would be introduced would go smoothly as well, and it did. Music is so vital for the vibe of reception, and DJ Byrd understands this! His setup/sound is professional, topnotch and classy and his lights just added so much more to the fun of the evening! You will not regret hiring him..look no further. Thank you DJ Byrd!! - Darielle and Joseph Malott

If you have second thoughts about whether you need a photobooth at all or if you want to hire VIP Event Booths.... just go ahead and do both! I was very hands-on with the design of the wedding, including designing my own custom backdrop and the print layouts - and VIP Event Booths was super easy to work with. The backdrop I had to get printed myself, but they let us use their stand and the attendant set everything up. The print layout I emailed them as high-quality pdfs and jpgs, and they returned their own proofs each time before they finalized it. Good camera, quick to answer questions, friendly attendant, online gallery.... all great! The only hiccup was that it rained on our wedding day so we had to get married in the reception space. I had wanted the photobooth area already set up to happen half an hour earlier, but the attendant paused the setup while the ceremony was happening and it all worked out in the end. If I could do it all over again, I would've opted for their photostrip guestbook. I had thought it was unnecessary because I did a polaroid guest book.... but the booth was such a huge hit that a lot of people missed it.

Anthony was awesome from the start of the contracting period until the end of our wedding reception. I sent him a short list of songs; he played every single one, took requests and figured out exactly what everyone wanted to hear. This is the 2nd time I hired a DJ; Anthony did exactly what I wanted but never got the first time I hired one. I highly recommend SuperSounds; they were professional, courteous and sensitive to all of our needs for this very special day. I would not hire anyone else in the future. Thank you so much, Anthony!

I was new to thumbtack and choosing a makeup artist for my wedding day seemed like a daunting task. I was pleasantly surprised when I found Sarah! From the moment we began to correspond about what I envisioned for my day, she understood what I wanted and delivered! She was very professional sending confirmation emails and was prompt in arriving to both the makeup trial and on my big day! After my makeup trial, I became excited for my wedding and knew I had made the right choice in hiring Sarah. She made me feel beautiful! If there is one thing I regret is not hiring her for my shower!! I recommend Sarah for any occasion. You won't be disappointed!

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!!

One of the best choice I made for my wedding was having Ross as an officiant! He met with us on numerous occasions to make sure every last detail would be perfect. He made the ceremony a one of a kind experience for everyone. It was both personal and funny, while maintaining the utmost professionalism. It was an incredible experience to have Ross officiate for us!!

Maxx did a great job as the DJ for our wedding!-He met with us ahead of time to help us organize the reception and develop a flow for the evening. His knowledge and experience were a big help to us as we prepared. The reception went beautifully! He did exactly what we had asked him to do. It was a Christian wedding and Maxx made great selections for music. It was fun without ever being inappropriate or dishonoring to God. We would recommend Maxx to anyone looking for a DJ!

Deva has the artistic ability to create serene magical pictures even in the chaotic environment (which can be most weddings)! We first met Deva for our engagement pictures - we had chosen one of our favorite neighborhood parks. Little did we know that they were doing the yearly "getting ready for fall" gardening and the place was turned upside down. Not only did you not see the destruction happening around the garden, our pictures turning out stunning :) Deva took the time to get to know us over email and a couple phone calls and by the time the wedding day arrived, I didn't have to worry about Deva - she was on the ball, captured all the special moment, and some secret moments as well. She even had staked out a few places near the venue for couples pictures. And icing on the cake, as an anxious bride, we got out pictures way before we expected and they are lovely. Thank you Deva!

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.

What is a wedding planner?

A wedding planner is a professional service provider whose job it is to organize and execute all the details of a couple’s wedding. A wedding planner can be contracted at any stage in the wedding planning process to help to any degree the couple is willing to pay for. Wedding planning is similar to event planning in that a planning team handles the coordination of multiple wedding elements including catering, venue, guests, entertainment, decor, transportation and more. Anyone who has ever been involved in a wedding can confirm that wedding planning is hard work. Experience brings wisdom when it comes to avoiding or resolving day-of challenges. There is no legal regulatory body that oversees or certifies wedding planning as an industry. Anyone who chooses can call themselves a wedding planner. When looking for a wedding planner, be sure to read reviews, and make smart hiring decisions by asking about licenses and insurance.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
