Graduation photos for my son turned out amazing. I'm so pleased with the photos and the customer service. And very helpful with any questions or concerns. My son was very nervous at first but she was able to get him to relax with her personality and able to get amazing shots of him. I will always have these photos of him at this wonderful time of his life. Would definitely recommend and we will return to have family photos done. Repeat customers!

    Tony has come out to shoot video twice for us. He did a video for my sons football team that was amazing. He also dropped everything to go or and shoot video at our ranch for a memorial video for my father. He added pictures, music and video on top of the video he took. It was perfect. He is professional, punctual and reliable. He produces top of the line quality work. I would recommend Tony to anyone looking for both pictures and/or video production.

    Sally did an outstanding job on my wedding video. I cried when I watched it, it was so beautiful. She is really friendly and easy to work with. She spent a lot of time and care in editing my video to end up with a really smooth flowing final product. I am very happy with my video and would recommend her to everyone.

    Emily is an incredible photographer and videographer. I hired Emily to shoot video at our wedding back in 2013. To this day, the video they produced for my wedding makes me cry every single time I watch it. The only regret I have is not going back and not having her cloned to shoot the photography at my wedding too! I have since hired Emily to do holiday photos with my husand, and have participated in glamor shots at her studio. Let me tell you, there is a reason I keep going back to Emily time after time... Emily has a way that makes you feel is so incredibly comfortable and beautiful (inside and out). That is a quality I have had a hard time finding in other photographers I have tried. Plus... She is SO MUCH FUN!

    You're looking at the right place. Chris can do amazing things, both with his video equipment AND my budget. He's also an idea guy, just what I sometimes need when I need to flush out an idea. And it helps that he not only speaks my language (advertising), he also speaketh computer-ese, very handy when trying to get things to or from other sources.

    The Downtown St. Charles Partnership worked with David to produce video for our Holiday Homecoming event in 2012. David did an outstanding capturing video of the various activities and the feel good sentiment. David even suggested two videos to separate our Lighting of the Lights event from the Electric Christmas Parade which was the right call. Both videos turned out great and David was helpful in adding the final touches. He understood our needs and delivered!

      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.  
      Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
