Unbelievable shoot! Not only does Neil take great photos, but he goes above and beyond with the overall vision. He added so many shots that my team and I wouldn't have thought of until it was too late. He's a very well mannered guy, easy to get along with and works well with us amateurs. We shot our sports product in several different locations in one day and he made it fun all the way through! I definitely know who to hire for future shoots. He's a real professional who truly loves his craft! Bobby

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!

Andrew helped us out by shooting a promo video for our jewelry store. He did an incredible job. He came in on time and sat with us to discuss exactly how we wanted our video to look like and offered his professional opinion and advice. He took many shots to make sure he had everything he needed. He was very thorough and precise with every shot. Our video turned out even better than we were hoping for. We will be working with Leibman Productions again in the near future. Highly recommended.

I asked Thumbtack for videography for a wedding and Crisitian was the first to reply with the cheapest offer. He also included a lot of service for the price he asked. We were sceptical at first because we never hired videographer before and know nothing about it but Cristian reassured us that everything will be perfect and we had nothing to worry about. He was very easy to communicate with, very responsive and polite. He contacted me few days prior the event to talk out last minute details. On the day, he arrived even earlier what made me feel less nervous on my big day. It was so easy to work with him, he made me understand that he is true proffesional in the work he does. I was wondering what I had to do for the video but Cristian explaied to me crealrly and showed examples which also made it easier for us. Cristian also had no problem staying longer for the event. I love his work, style and the fact that he usues most recent and best quality equipment necessery for best photogrpahy and videography. The best part is that we do not have to wait long to recieve pictures and video! As we are all so excited to see them, Cristian had couple of them ready the next day! I had a lot of complements and good comments about the photos Cristian made! I will absolutely hire his again and again for my future events and will recommend him to anyone who is looking for great quality, friendly open environemt in communication and inexpensive ! Thank you so so much! You trully made our day easier, I did not have to worry about anything and because of your work we have such great captured moments for the rest of our lives ! Thank you again! Best, Anna and David October 2016.

Tommy was the videographer for both my engagement party & my wedding. He is AMAZING!!! I couldn't have been happier with his finished product. He is the new *IT guy when it comes to wedding videos, his new modern tecqunique stands out for any other video I have seen before, it's more like a movie/ music video. He made sure to capture the moments that meant the most to me, I received a million comliments on my wedding video as Well as my engagement video. If you want someone fresh, modern and different work with Vengo films! You will be thrilled with your video. My brother will be hiring tommy for his wedding video in NYC this summer, We cannot wait to see the end result. I highly reccomend hiring vengo films for your next event!

I hired Lemar for a surprise engagement at the Rockefeller centre in NYC. Lemar was so great. He made the occasion so easy and was amazing to work with. He had already scoped the area we were shooting in and had placing in mind for us to shoot after he event too. This gave me peace of mind on the day which was already very high pressured and important to be just right. He provided great high quality photos and video of the event. I am so happy with his work. I highly recommend this man. He is an artist and truly a nice guy too. Thanks Lemar!

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.
