Working with James and this company was amazing. I had no idea how to go about filming or producing a music video and he made it so easy and effortless for us. From my first interaction to the last, James and his crew were incredibly professional and personable. James was enthusiastic, engaged, attentive, knowledgeable, creative, and receptive. I never felt like I did not have a say in the process, but if I was clueless James was right there to guide us along. After filming was complete, James created and edited an incredible final product. I have heard nothing but rave reviews. The November Company made a bunch of amateurs look like stars!

We are a metal band out of Columbus called Bless The Child. We have worked with Paul on a few different projects. He did the album art work for our 1st CD, along with a photo shoot, and just recently has completed a music video of our song, Indiscriminate Annihilation. We have always enjoyed every minute of working with Paul. He has great energy, and is very professional at his job. We will continue to work with Cool World Photography, because we know the outcome will never disappoint us. We highly recommend him!

Axon production gets high marks from me in every area. Trent listened closely to my ideas for my project. He envisioned how he could improve on it, and then he supplied creative input. I liked his suggestions which required less talent, less time and they were more efficient than mine. I admire how Trent took the initiative to complete the project without me being present for the video shoot. The results were much better than what I imagined and the video quality was top notch. Trent also communicated in a timely manner, and although he is over 2 hours away from my location; it seemed as if I was working with someone who was just down the hall. Trent has the "Spirit of Excellence" and Axon Productions is highly recommended!!

I needed this video edited for me and I didn't know who could help until I found Agin Visulas! I asked him if he could help and he said he would edit this video for me. The video turned out to be fantastic and I would most definitely recommend his help!

Kevin has photographed several events for us, as well as shot/edited/produced videos ranging from family celebrations to professional presentations. The quality of the work is outstanding - his photography has a fresh feel, and his friendly and professional demeanor allows people to relax and forget about the camera, resulting in pictures that we will treasure forever. The video work is clean and creative - he some how delivers exactly what we need, even if we weren't sure ourselves. I could not recommend his services more highly.

    I hired Mike to do some location head shots and business portraits for my website. On time, had great ideas, and was efficient with my time. The turn around on the final images was much faster than I expected and the images were fantastic. His professionalism and quality work let me to refer him for a video project that I was working on (for Treatment Tree Software). This guy knows his stuff and I will definitely work with him again.

      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.
