Very professional, on point, knows his stuff. Very patient, flexible and with a positive attitude even after my AC stopped working and we had to film in a room that was like a sauna. Can't wait to see the edited videos!

My experience with Studio Kin was wonderful. I am a choreographer and have hired Heather to capture dance in both image and film. Each time I worked with her she was took time to understand and respect my vision while bringing her own ideas and knowledge (which is vast and varied) to the table. Beyond creative capacity and quality she is also professional and reliable. I would recommend Heather glowingly to anyone looking for photo or video work in Columbus!

Nate Agin is an amazing videographer and editor. His prices are fair and he delivers quality work. At first I was skeptical since he was relatively unknown but after taking the chance I do not regret being his client.

Grateful...​ My my fiance and I were planning a wedding and we decided we didn't want a big wedding. We wanted a very intimate wedding with just close friends and family. We still wanted our extended friends and family to share in our day so we reached out to Our Love Story Film. When we watched our wedding film for the first time I couldn't stop crying and I still cry every time I watch it. What I love most is how he actually paid attention to our story and really emphasised that in our film. Thats so important to me because I don't ever want to forget that day and I don't ever want to forget why we fell in love... Our Wedding Film was one of the best decisions we could have ever made for capturing our day. We are so thankful. Gino & Casey Haynes

    About a month before our wedding, my parents suggested that we get a videographer to capture our day. Little did I know that a flash mob was brewing to be performed during the reception by the wedding party and guests. Everyone except me (the bride) knew! Hence, we needed a videographer at the last minute to catch the flash mob on film. Curt was so flexible and we were so grateful! My parents worked with Curt to ensure that he had two cameras, one on me and one on the mob so we could see a split screen of the flash mob, which is very fun to watch! We were also grateful that he offered to stay the whole night, so he was able to capture our send off! Curt quickly turned around a video of the ceremony Mass and a 30-minute highlight video, including the flash mob. In addition, Curt made a video of just my Dad and I dancing so I could give it to my Dad for Father's Day. He also made a 5-minute highlight video and a video of just the flash mob for us so that we could share them with friends and family. We were very grateful for Curt's flexibility and his sincere desire to ensure that he captured every important moment for us. We also loved that he was not intrusive, and sometimes we wondered where he was (in a good way!). I have been to weddings where videographers are so annoying and are in everyone's faces. Curt never did that and still filmed what we wanted! For the price Curt offers, he can't be beat!

          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.
