Christina Brown photographed our family of eight. We were on a walking trail & it took approximately one hour. It seemed to go quicker because she made it fun for everyone!! Christina has a great eye for photography, catching all the right poses, the correct lighting, etc. Her ideas for backgrounds & colors are excellent. She was prompt & didn't make us feel rushed at all! She's very professional & yet a lot of fun! The quality of work CKB does is second to none!! I don't think our session could have been any better. Christina went above & beyond what most photographers might do. She was on the ground, in front of us, behind us, etc. We will definitely use her again & we highly recommend her to others!

Words can't explain how happy I am Brandi and Mark were our videographers for our June 2013 wedding .They did an ABSOLUTE fantastic job to get any all shots and were so easy to work with. They helped recommend great places for first look and photographs, it was perfect they both really have an eye and talent for what they do. I didn't even know they were there half the time but when I got the video back it was MORE THAN clear they didn't miss a single shot or event throughout the day! I honestly couldn't be more impressed and in awe with our wedding video and products, it's more than we could imagine! I always thought of wedding videos of being like the VHS tapes of my parents wedding, slow and boring, but WOW was I proven wrong and more than happy with Brandi's work and how the video was made and UNBORING it was. There are so many shots throughout the day that, as the bride, you don't get to see. Brandi captured that all and let my husband and I relive our wedding day and we couldn't be more pleased! I highly recommend.

We met Ashley through our venue and she was a dream!We had terrible experiences with local photographers not just in price but in how controlling they were on the event (one even suggested we through ceremony to the side and meet for a photo shoot before we were married on the day of!). She was very open and made our pre shoot all about us. We can't wait to get married and work with Ashley to capture the event! Definitely give her a call!

Simply put, Aaron does great work. He was clear in what would be provided and when so we knew what to expect. He was professional onsite as well as during communication throughout the project. He's down to earth, easy to talk to, capable, experienced, and talented. Don't think twice about utilizing Aaron's high-quality services!

Jake did a video shoot for us for one of our clients whose product (a flashlight) required very specific camera and lighting expertise. Jake definitely knows his stuff, and even provided a test clip of his camera's low-light abilities before we even hired him (unprompted!). Because our client is located in a different state, we were not able to send anyone from our team to the shoot, so Jake was there representing our company on his own. The client loved working with Jake, saying he was "wonderful!" Jake got the footage to us in a timely manner and it was fantastic. Exactly what we needed and expected. Not only did he get the shots we asked for, he got some great B roll, and the quality was stellar. While reviewing the footage, our (normally critical) video editor said, "I LOVE this guy." Overall, a great experience. We'll definitely use DF Production Services for future shoots in the area.

We hired Michael last minute to video a reception for our retiring CEO. Michael was a consummate professional. He arrived early, set up his cameras and tested all equipment prior to the start of the event. Our guests barely noticed as he worked the room, quietly capturing every detail of our event. Without any familiarity with our organization, our CEO, or the venue, Michael created a final video that felt as if he had known our team for years. We were incredibly impressed with the beautifully packaged USB drive that he had customized for us with our logo on the box and our CEO's name and the reception date on the actual USB drive inside. It was such a nice touch and the quality of the final video was fantastic. We will definitely hire him again for our next video project!

Masterworks Imaging did the photography AND video for our wedding. Not only did they do an incredible job, but they did so on the fly - they drove to Knoxville, TN and didn't know the lay of the land or have any perfect places picked out. Instead they helped us, find some good spots, and then suggested specific ideas of places to do the photos on location. During the wedding ceremony I wasn't even aware they were there yet they got fantastic video and photos. Ohh and we also got the photo booth which was a hit during the reception - everyone loved it and we loved having pictures of everyone. Hire Masterworks - they do great work and they have so much experience that they can really add value making your photos that much better!!

I am very pleased to write this recommendation for Cincy Recruits. Cincy Recruits videographers videoed our son's wedding day and did an awesome job before, during and after the wedding. They came very professional looking and were very easy to work with. The video will surely be a treasured part of their lives, as a reminder of a lovely, happy, cold day in November. We know that behind the video there's the work of excellent professionals and a really pleasant team. All of our family and friends who have seen the video are very impressed with the high artistic quality of the video. They truly did a fantastic job! In closing, I would highly recommend Cincy Recruits for your special day or sporting event.

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.  
Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
