John did an excellent job covering our daughter's first birthday party. He covered every aspect and was very professional and punctual. He adds a unique touch by offering a best wishes video, which we will cherish for years to come. The purpose of hiring a videographer was to have some memories for our daughter to see as she grows up and John truly fulfilled our wishes. Truly a 5 star experience! I would hire him again for my next event.

Bin videoed my daughter's Bat Mitzvah. She was professional and pleasant, but I was worried that the video wouldn't be excellent quality because of the low light in the venue. Bin repeatedly asked to have the lights turned up and happily the video turned out nicely. My only real complaint is that Bin was more of an observer versus other videographers who tend to get people excited to be on camera.

Spike took our Engagement photos in Central Park last week, and the experience couldn’t be any better! We originally had a different date and plan in mind. But Spike was flexible and accommodated the changes in our plan. During the day of the shoot, Spike made us very relaxed. We felt at ease with his presence. He gave us directions on poses, but made sure we were comfortable with them. Spike also knows the park well, taking us to a number of his favorite locations. He was also open to our suggestions on shooting locations. We received the photos within a week of our shoot. My fiancée and I are very happy with them. They look amazing and I’m sure the photos will be our treasured memories in the years to come. One last note, we’ve reached out to a number of photographers, both on Thumbtack and elsewhere. Spike’s rate was very reasonable, especially more so now that we’ve received the photos and gone through the experience. Overall, I would not hesitate to recommend Spike for your photo needs!

I hire videographers all the time via Thumbtack when I speak around the country. Out of all of the people that I've hired, Andrew has been the best that I've worked with. He took the time to understand my vision for my project. He arrived early and stayed a little later than our contracted time to help me get what I needed. He is quick to respond and is very talented. He exceeded my expectations and I will hire him for future events. If you are looking for an unbelievable videographer, look no further. Andrew is the person for 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.

From our first moment of contact I knew I was meeting a professional videographer. He responded almost immediately. I was impressed. I described my event to Michael in detail. It was a monument dedication ceremony for 15 army recruits that died in a plane crash the same day they were inducted. That date was 1961. It took nearly 55 years to dedicate these soldiers with a monument. This dedication meant so much to the still living families, and to the community. It was very important to have the right individual for this project. Someone who took great care in developing a cinematic production of an event that took nearly one year to organize from design, into construction, and right into the day of the dedication. There were too many family members still with a heavy heart, and too many members of the community with doubts in their minds of whether this was the closure of that fateful day. We needed a professional that we could depend on. Michael was that individual. The final footage was quite impressive. If you want that special event to be recorded for posterity, you'll not be wrong to hire Visitor-one Productions.

David was recommended to us by our wedding photographer to film and create our wedding highlight reel and needless to say, he was nothing short of amazing. Very laid back and easing going, he was very easy to work with. It felt natural having him there; almost as if he blended into the background despite all his video gear. In the beginning, we were skeptical about wedding videographers, but after seeing our highlight reel, we absolutely had no regrets hiring one and was very happy with the finished product. We recommend David for all your videography needs!

Peter Giunta of Primodio Studios was the videographer at our son’s Bar Mitzvah on September 16, 2017, and was an absolute gem to work with...AND we love both the highlight video and full video that we received from him! Peter is very professional and sought our input to ensure that the products he delivered were exactly what we were looking for. He captured absolutely everything about our son’s Bar Mitzvah that we wanted him to….the setting, dancing, the blessing over the challah, our son with his friends, and with family and family friends, my husband’s and my speech, the candlelighting ceremony, photo montage and an unexpected pleasant surprise was that he asked some guests to say a few words to our son near the end of the video. For us, the day was one of those days that we’d like to hold onto forever, and while we can’t literally do that, the videos that we received from Peter are the next best thing! They have captured the love, joy and sheer magic of the day; we’ll cherish them forever! In addition to videotaping the Bar Mitzvah, we asked Peter to take family portraits at our synagogue on September 23rd, as the photographer we used for the Bar Mitzvah was unavailable that day and we were very pressed for time. Peter did it and we are very happy with the photographs that we received from him. He took wonderful photos of our son with us, his brother, his grandparents, reading the Torah and with the rabbi. If you are looking for either a photographer or videographer, we highly recommend Peter Giunta/Primodio Studios. Peter's price was very reasonable and again, he's an absolute pleasure to work with.

I had the great pleasure of hiring Andy for an event in August 2015. Our start-up was hosting a panel and roundtable lunch with about 80 attendees in Manhattan. At the last minute (just a few days prior to the event), our CEO requested we professionally film the entire panel discussion to reuse in future marketing. I found Andy via Thumbtack, and he was quick to respond and give me the entire rundown of what he could do for us. He was also kind enough to work with us on budget--filming only the essentials and doing very light editing. On the day of the event, Andy arrived promptly with all his equipment at the venue, got set-up, and started rolling without any trouble. We saw the rough cut in just a matter of days--and he was fast in getting us the edited materials, as well. The video itself was of terrific quality and captured exactly what we hoped for (Andy has done plenty of panel and professional events previously, so he knew exactly what to capture and frame). I look forward to working with Andy again (in fact, we're already setting-up our next event with him as the videographer). I can't forget to mention he's a nice guy--which made the entire experience of working with him even better!

Solo's work is on a completely different level compared to most wedding videographers out there. I'm an amateur videographer, so when I started to look for videographers - I had to find someone who could do a better job than I could ever do myself. Video is a number one priority for me, so when I saw Solo's videos - I knew I could trust him 100% and that I didn't have to do anything but to book him for our wedding. Solo is a true professional - I still can't believe the level of the quality of work he's done for us considering how hectic our wedding was. He made the most out of what he could work with and created a masterpiece that truly reflects our personalities and the atmosphere of the wedding. It was an honor to have him film our wedding, because he didn't just make a video, he created a work of art that my wife and I are honored to be featured in and will cherish forever.

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.
