"My husband retired from the Army and was celebrating a milestone birthday so I really wanted to do something special for him. I came across the idea of doing a boudoir photo shoot and thought that it would be something he would love (and would surprise the hell out of him!) but I had so many reservations about actually going through with it. I did extensive research on photographers in my area and came across The Boudoir Cafe. After looking at the photos on their website I knew that if I was going to actually go through with it this was the place I wanted to get it done. Cherie and Hedley's work are not just pictures, they are a work of art and none of the other photographers photo's even came close. I emailed Cherie to get information on the shoot and she responded back right away. Her amazing personality shines through, even through email, and I felt so much better after letting her know some of my reservations about getting these types of photos done. She sent me a great guide with tips to help me prepare for my shoot and really calmed my nerves. I have always struggled to appreciate my "curves" and especially now, as a mother of 2, I definitely have insecurities. Despite all this, I decided to just go for it. I have to say, even preparing for the shoot was nice. I took the time to buy some beautiful lingerie, get my nails done, and spend time doing things for myself which I hardly find time to do in between school drop-offs, homework, sports, and caring for my husband who was injured during his military service. I decided to travel from Nevada to LA to shoot with Cherie and Hedley in person and I'm so happy I did. When I arrived at their studio Cherie came out and greeted me. I already felt like I knew her from our email correspondence so it wasn't awkward at all. The studio is super cute and has such an intimate feel. I was able to talk to Cherie for awhile and then met Hedley, who is so incredibly kind. I didn't know how I would feel shooting with a man but they are so professional that I didn't worry about anything at all. My makeup artist was so sweet and did a beautiful job on my hair and makeup, and they even brought me a snacks and a drink while I was getting ready. I felt like a movie star by the time I was ready to shoot! I can't say that I wasn't nervous but after being in front of the camera for a few minutes all of that just kind of went away. I loved how they both told me how to pose and guided me through the shoot, especially because I have never done anything like this and had no idea what I was doing! You can see the passion they both have for their art and although they must have done this a million times they still were so excited to get that perfect pose and perfect shot. It was amazing to see them switch the camera lenses and lights and sets so flawlessly. I also just adored the love they have for each other, it was so inspiring. By the end I was exhausted but had such a great time. I know it sounds corny but I left feeling like I got that sexiness back that is so easy to lose in the monotony of every day life. Cherie sent me the proofs of my pictures in less than 2 days and I was blown away, even before any retouching had been done. I had no idea how I was going to feel about them but I LOVED them. I could hardly believe it was me!! They were sexy and beautiful and classy all at the same time. My husband just about lost his mind when he saw them and it was awesome to see that fire again. I let him pick the final pictures that are going to be edited and he must've gone over the pictures 10 times just admiring them all. He tells me constantly how beautiful I am to him but to be able to give him these pictures that are totally out of the norm was so much fun. It reminded me of when we first started dating and all of the excitement our relationship had before kids and the stresses of life. In the end, although these pics were initially for him, I feel like they were just as much for me. I love the confidence they have brought me. I was able to see myself in such a different light and realize that I'm beautiful the way I am, even if I don't have the "supermodel stick thin figure" I thought was needed to feel that way. I really feel like every woman, no matter where you are in life, should splurge and get these done for themselves. Thank you Cherie and Hedley, for helping me rock these curves and look damn good doing it."

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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 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.

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.  

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.
