Alex was the consummate professional to work with from start to finish. He answered every question I had and was very flexible with my schedule (even having to reschedule once on my short notice). I hired Alex to take both my self- and family portraits for my recent graduation at Columbia and I don't believe any other professional could have captured this very special moment in my life any better. Alex was very professional and so friendly throughout the process that my family and I had a wonderful time walking through campus taking multiple shots. Alex even finalized my photo portfolio the same day and I greatly appreciated such a swift and short turnaround! I will be hiring Alex for future photo shoots and know that I am in great hands for amazingly, high quality photos.

Kevin is very knowledgeable about photography, which is apparent after just a quick conversation. He gave me a bunch of different options to consider, along with his own recommendations. He very patiently described the inspirations behind his shoots and also gave me an overview of some of the technical aspects he utilized. Ultimately, it was a very pleasant experience and I would definitely recommend Kevin to anyone who is looking for photographic services.

I had a fantastic experience with Bin who I hired to photograph my bridal shower. She did a great job at capturing the emotions of the day while also effortlessly getting in some great group shoots. The photos are gorgeous and will allow me to remember this very special day forever. I'm so happy that I hired Bin and I will use her again for other events in the future.

Chris was an absolute joy to work with. He made me feel so comfortable in front of the camera; I wasn't self conscious at all. He is very friendly and keeps conversation flowing, capturing your natural self, so your head shots and portraits don't look fake or staged, but like the best version of you. I use the photos he took as my professional acting headshots, and I continually receive compliments on how well shot they are and how well they capture my personality. I would recommend him to everyone I know–for professional headshots as well as family, wedding, or any kind of shoots!

We hired Salah for my wife's 30th birthday - he was fantastic. He was easy to work with and very friendly with all our guests. He was kind enough to join us the entire day of photography that took place in Paramus, NJ and all over Manhattan, NY. Salah is very easy going and provides quality work. He provided all the picture at the end of our event, which was awesome. Salah also provided a small video clip of our event - I would certainly recommend him for both photography and videography. Thanks Salah for capturing our event :)

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!!!!

I requisitioned Ed after seeing his skill behind the camera for a somewhat impromptu photo and video shoot at the boardwalk of Coney Island in Brooklyn, NY. He'd done some work for me before (album covers, photo shoots, advisements on video projects, etc) so I thought I knew what to expect, but Ed is an ever evolving and constantly changing professional. He experiments with different styles all the time and always comes to the shoot/project with more than just a few new ideas. Though Ed is an expert in his own right, he doesn't try to silence the creative processes of the subject. He's a creative type himself, so I expect that he understands the plight of the creative that goes unheard. Granted, I'm not a creative type, so I had almost nothing to bring to the table. In a situation like that, Ed takes over and makes you feel comfortable. I would recommend Ed's videography, photography and consultation skills to anyone that needs a project done, be it a wedding, a music video, a photo shoot or any other project that would require creativity, common sense, problem solving and passion. That's one thing Ed brings to every work site: passion. You won't be disappointed, that I can assure you.

Choosing Beverly Boy for my production company was an easy choice. Their credentials are high, and upon researching the company their video quality is out of this world! I knew going with my gut was the right choice, as soon as I saw these guys I had to have them!

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.
