Bin did an excellent job as our videographer for our son's Christening. We were very happy with the results. In addition, she also took several pictures of our family when she was not using the video camera. She has a great eye-- spent a significant amount of time making sure the pictures were the best quality. Guests commented to us that the photographer really spent a lot of time getting great pictures. Bin is dependable and easy to reach. She is also very personable and is a pleasure to work with!

After posting my (unorthodox) request to Thumbtack, I received a call from Chris within minutes. He presented himself professionally and personable, two things that were important to me due to the nature of the event - a surprise wedding. It was a small affair with 8 people (including Chris) where the groom was completely unaware he was about to get a wedding ceremony and reception put together by his friends (the couple was already married, but did so in a different state on short notice of being engaged so no local friends were able to make it to the wedding, hence a surprise wedding with his closest and local friends). Chris took quick to making great suggestions for the event and worked with us to make sure we captured each moment beautifully. He came prepared, on time, in appropriate attire, with expertise, and a smile. He clearly loves his work, and it shows in the product. Due to the intimate nature of the event, Chris integrated well with the small but diverse group of people, being chatty and comfortable but on point and out of the way when appropriate. He was also knowledgeable and knew important aspects of New York law regarding lighting and standing tripod lights. This kept us from getting in any legal trouble while at the public park in DUMBO, Brooklyn. Chris was also willing to work with us with regard to operating my DSLR camera mounted on a tripod to capture video as he went around taking photos. Editing, delivery, and response time. Chris was able to get back to me most often within minutes of any request, always quick with a confirmation and didn't pester me with constant contact. The turnaround time was fantastic, ten (10) days after the event we have the photos edited and delivered in full, this is also during a holiday weekend. Very impressed with the turnaround given both the holiday and the time of year, I expect he was busy with other clients as well as us. All summed up, positive experience, beautiful photos, professionally presented, no issues with delivery or "holding photos hostage for a higher fee", appropriately priced, and made us all very happy with our decision to hire Chris Waggoner, highly recommend!

I started an event planning company recently and needed to hire a video guy for my first event, after reviewing many matches on Thumbtack, I came across KC. I saw his previous work and liked it and he also worked with me on a price that I could afford. He showed up on time and even covered for my photographer that didn't show up. He snapped a few complimentary pictures for me even though he was only hired to do the video. He worked with me on the editing and did a great job catering to our needs. Would def use KC again.

Cristian and his team provided amazing photography and video services for our wedding. We were pleasantly surprised that he was able to give us a few select pics the same night of our wedding so we could share with our family and friends. The videos and pics were very artistic and captured our special day beautifully! And the presentation of the final package of videos and pics was top notch. I would highly recommend Cine Marvel Films. -Sheila Brooklyn, NY

Wow! Eddie and his assistant are AWESOME! He was super responsive throughout the whole planning process. On the day of our wedding he was there super early to set up, played all my requests and chose great music to play after those were finished. A few weeks prior to our day, I asked Eddie if he would be able to bring a projector so I could play a video and I was thrilled that he could! It went so well!! Big shout out to his assistant who was a ray of sunshine at the photobooth the whole night. So happy we had the pleasure of working with Strategy Event Productions! Thank you!!!!

I would highly recommend Anton to everyone. He really did a great job for filming my wedding at Oct. He got to the venue early to film the preparation, and filmed a lot of beautiful details that me and my guests didn't even pay much attention. He and his assistance worked entire time from ceremony to the end of receptions. I can see him everywhere. After the wedding, he quickly provided me the highlight (in a day!) and modified quickly based on my requests. The highlight turned out amazing! I couldn't believe he captured so many small, but touching and beautiful moments. He made the highlight like a mini movie! All family members, friends, my hubby and myself are supper impressed by the highlight. Compared the price I paid with the service I got, Anton is the most valuable vendor amount all the vendors I hired for the wedding! He is definitely above my expectation! I will definitely go back to him for my next important event (new born etc)!

I've found David on Thumbtack about 1.5 month before my wedding and I'm so lucky I did! He was very professional from the very first encounter, always on time and such a pleasure to work with! He's very passionate about filming and it shows in his work (I've spent at least 4 days watching wedding videos and I loved David's work the most!). The price was very reasonable and I couldn't be happier with it! David brought an assistant, multiple cameras and even a drone! Can't wait to see our beautiful wedding video! And with David making it I'm sure it will be incredible! Thank you so much for all your hard work!

The highlight video that was produced was top notch. Larry came to my daughters games and created a highlight film that my daughter and I are very proud of. We sent the video to some of her perspective high schools and her current CYO and AAU coaches. The responses were positive. Larry did not just edit out the bad stuff; he was able to capture what she is as a basketball player. The only thing you need to ask is how long will the whole process take from filming, editing to delivery. I underestimated how long it would take (not their fault) to produce the highlight film as well as how soon the high schools needed their decisions. All in all, it all worked out as we wanted and we have a great film that we plan to post online.

I truly cannot begin to say enough good things about my experience working with Chatalbash Studios. I wanted to create a video for my boyfriend for his 30th birthday of all his family sending videos and combine them with photos. From the beginning he completely understood the vision I had and gave me great advice. I was completely in the dark about the process of how to obtain videos from family members and wanted to make the process as easy as possible for everyone. He talked me through it and made it super easy. Anytime I had questions he was always willing to answer them in a timely way and kept in touch with me throughout the entire thing. The turnaround time was unbelievable and just when I thought I might miss my deadline for the project (completely my fault not his) he blew me away and had my video ready in no time! The finished product was EXACTLY what I had in mine. I would highly recommend Chatalbash Studios to anyone in need of video editing services and will definitely be only using his services for my future projects. Thank you!

Malcholm did a great job for our event. He was very professional and finished our video faster than he had promised. The quality was beyond what we expected, it wasn't cheesy at all. I thought we were watching a real movie not just a video of our event!!!!

We had a vision of what our film should convey..and had very many possible ways to show that, but no idea how the video could convey our messages. We were in very professional hands with Dynasty. They guided us and yet were responsive to our input. The end product is powerful and accomplishes our goals efffectively.

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.

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.  

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.
