My fiancée and I love the photos that Jennifer took for our engagement photo shoot! We thoroughly enjoyed the experience, and highly recommend Jennifer. She worked with us before and during the shoot to make sure we had the poses we wanted, and her attention to detail really helped our photos pop. It's too bad we are getting married in Florida, otherwise we'd have Jennifer do our wedding too.

Matthew Tumbelekis from Sound Entertainment DJ's is a joy to work with. I have hired Matt to do two weddings, a vow-renewal and graduation party. He is very easy to work with, professional and has a great selection of music. If he doesn’t have the song you are looking for, he will make sure he has it for your event. He offers Karaoke, which we used for the graduation party and was a huge hit. He takes time to sit down with the bride/groom to lay out the entire ceremony/reception. He hit every cue perfectly, pronounced names correctly and knows how to get people up and dancing til the end of the night. Matt has excellent instinct and really knows how to keep things moving. He was on time and ready to roll when we gave him the thumbs up. I have him on contract for another wedding to date. I definitely recommend, you will not be disappointed.

We could not have been more thrilled with the amazing photos that Tom took at our daughter's July 2nd wedding outside of Auburn. Tom was so unobtrusive, yet really captured the beauty of the day. Thank you so much Thomas Mizzoni!

We hired Sam directly from Thumbtack. I had spoken with a few other DJ's and did not get the same feeling I had when speaking to Sam. Our wedding was also being planned from another state and needless to say everything went flawless. DJ Gemini had a thorough spreadsheet and he followed what we asked for to a T and then some! He had everything down to a science and ensured he had all of the information 10 times over. There were some songs (like during cake cutting) we couldn't think of and he was quick on his feet to give us some GREAT suggestions. His suggestions were so good that we went with it and it was a success! Not only did Sam provide music, he also provided up-lighting and it absolutely made the place look stunning (he has a bunch of colors and we went with purple). We got married in a very gray looking place and the purple lighting made the world of a difference! On the day of our wedding the music was INCREDIBLE. Our family and friends couldn't stop raving about how great the music was. Sam read the crowd and blended his music like a REAL DJ. We had a few songs that cleared the dance floor and he immediately blended to another song to fill it back up. There are a lot of "hoaky" and "corny" DJ's out there for weddings and Sam is not one of them. He was professional at all times, even when we had him announce the best man in the most hysterical way (I can't even write it here)! I even had glow sticks, he handed them out like a champ and played along to our humor! I would recommend DJ Gemini Sound to absolutely anyone! If you are looking for a professional, REAL DJ, infinite music list, VERY good with reading a crowd, thorough in advanced (for the bride that is a planner), and simply an overall amazing DJ.... you can't go wrong with hiring them!!!!!!!!

I hired Tracy to do my wedding hair on sort of short notice, I got in touch with her about 3 weeks before my fiancé and I flew into Niagara Falls and got married. She was professional, funny, and wonderful! My hair turned out beautifully, and it was exactly what I was hoping for!

Chris was our wedding photographer and he was absolutely amazing! He was there all day and was sure to meet all of our needs and wants for our photos. He gave us a sneak peak a few days later and everyone loved those photos. When we got the rest of our photos we were just blown away! It was amazing and honestly made me cry remembering our day and how well he captured it. On top of that the photo booth we had from him was a huge hit and everyone loved it!

I am both a future bride who will be using this company for my own wedding, and a DJ who had the pleasure of working alongside this company at the wedding of another bride. Jeff and Sara were SO professional and kind, and very easy to work with. By far they were the most pleasant videographers I have ever experienced. These two knew exactly what they were doing and made everything happen very smoothly and easily, which is exactly why I am intending to use them at my own wedding and will then be providing another review, from the perspective of a bride. I think it's important for anyone using a service to think of all aspects of the people they are hiring. As a bride, you want to have a knowledgeable company who provides a quality service for a reasonable price, but I think it is also VERY important for brides to hear that this company is very easy to work with from the perspective of another vender. Oftentimes, when I work with other venders, a company will be outstanding to a bride and her guests, but do not show the same courtesy to the other professionals at a wedding, as we are not the ones they are trying to "impress", and this was definitely not true of Jeff and Sara. You can be assured that if you hire this company for your big day, not only will you be provided with a quality product, but that everyone in attendance, both guests and otherwise, will be very pleased and comfortable working hand in hand with Kidd Media Productions. I can't wait to have them at my own wedding!

The entire day went so smoothly with RocFocus there. They came early to take shots of both us getting ready while traveling back & forth from location to location. When they weren't directing us into some really creative and beautiful shots, they were getting some really awesome candid pics unnoticed. I received a handful of compliments from guests on how professional they were! Within 6 weeks we had 900+ stunning pictures to enjoy! Leif and Kristen were also super flexible when scheduling our engagement photo session, and especially when we added the wedding video last minute!

Makenzie was super easy to work with and really made the morning portion of the wedding easy. She was super helpful and was able to work with me on times. She even was able to take on more bridesmaids when they wanted to have their hair done last minute! I highly recommend her. My hair was still looking perfect even at the end of the night. I was dancing the night away. She's the best!

Stephen did a fantastic job photographing or wedding. Not only were we thrilled with the results, we were also impressed with his patience and professionalism. He was adaptable when members of the wedding party were running late, and was able to get all of the shots we had originally asked for. He stayed at the reception well into the night and made sure we were updated on his progress with editing. All in all, Stephen is a great choice for a wallet-friendly wedding photographer.

Tom was an Amazing DJ I was skeptical at first because his rates were so low, but he was very friendly and easy to work with, I made a number of changes on my wants right up until my wedding day. He happily accommodated all of them. He knew what to play and when to play it. I highly recommend him as a DJ. I will be using him again if I need a DJ.

Erik taught my son guitar (he is 12 now) for the last three years and we were always pleased with his teaching and the outcome. My son learned so much and had the confidence to even perform at a classical guitar night for the public as well as playing for my sister's wedding!

Kelly did an awesome job on my wedding photos. She worked all day and night making sure to get the most important shots of me and my husband as well as family and friends. She offered me options of classic photos and more stylized filtered shots. She also designed my wedding invitations which turned out very clean, modern, and elegant. I've referred her to my friends and family who have all had positive experiences working with her. Worth every penny!

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.

What is a wedding planner?

A wedding planner is a professional service provider whose job it is to organize and execute all the details of a couple’s wedding. A wedding planner can be contracted at any stage in the wedding planning process to help to any degree the couple is willing to pay for. Wedding planning is similar to event planning in that a planning team handles the coordination of multiple wedding elements including catering, venue, guests, entertainment, decor, transportation and more. Anyone who has ever been involved in a wedding can confirm that wedding planning is hard work. Experience brings wisdom when it comes to avoiding or resolving day-of challenges. There is no legal regulatory body that oversees or certifies wedding planning as an industry. Anyone who chooses can call themselves a wedding planner. When looking for a wedding planner, be sure to read reviews, and make smart hiring decisions by asking about licenses and insurance.

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.

How much does it cost for a photographer for a wedding?

Finding the right wedding photographer can make a big difference for your ceremony. Nationally, the average wedding photographer’s price ranges from $800 to $1,000, but costs can be much higher in areas like Chicago, New York or Los Angeles where some couples spend $2,000 to $5,000 or more for the photographer they want. Factors that can affect your wedding photographer prices include the photographer’s reputation and experience. Heavy hitters can command top rates, especially during wedding-season weekends. Day of the week also affects your cost. You may get a $200 discount on wedding photographer prices if you get married on a Friday in November rather than a Saturday in June. Time onsite is also an important cost factor. Hiring a photographer to snap photos from the moment you wake up until after last call at the reception is going to cost more than five hours of pictures during the day. Multiple photographers, special lighting, and videography will also increase your costs. Ultimately you want to find someone who has a style you love and can provide the number of edited shots you want for a price you can handle. Learn more about hiring a wedding photographer.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
