Jerry was an absolutely amazing DJ who made sure everything ran smoothly! He arrived early to our venue, set up hours before, did great introductions, and played beautifully on the sax. He even made the odd layout of our reception venue work (the room with the tables people ate at was in a separate room than where the bar and equipment was set up). He made relatives on both sides of my now husbands family dance that you wouldn't normally see on the dance floor. Plus he was extremely affordable and perfect for us and our wedding since both my husband and I paid for everything ourselves, are in our early twenties, and are in college. I would highly recommend him to anyone and will use his services for any events we may have in the future!

Everything about Harry is GREAT! I would book him any time again without a doubt! He is the best photographer you could have for any event! He is a true professional, stays in contact, respects your wishes, and works with them. At the same time he has a vision, he knows how to talk to people, how to guide them. He has a very fun personality, too. The bridal party loved him! They took fun pictures later the night having a blast. He was always there to catch the right moment. He also brought an assistant with him. We felt very good and relieved having him on our wedding day to catch all the special moments. Harry thank you so much for everything, you are fabulous!!!

We used DJ Charlo for our wedding on 9/10/16 and could not have made a better choice. The planning process was easy using online forms and we also had a face to face consult. He knew exactly what type of music we wanted played at our wedding and delivered just that!!!! My guests had a blast and danced the night away. Everything was amazing!!!!!

Doug is awesome. He does a great job doing videography and creating special videos for weddings. With a photographer as what my wedding was they would be there doing everything they needed to do without interrupting the photographer. I can't wait to see the video that they will create from the wedding, but seeing past videos they will do an amazing job. I highly recommend Doug as he is very professional, punctional, does a great job, good guy and has a lot of fun doing it. Not only that they even stayed a little longer than we contracted them for yesterday and that was awesome. Basically going above and beyond to make sure every detail of the wedding is recorded. Thanks Doug for everything you do.

Performed wedding reception makeup and hair and it was extremely gorgeous. I loved it and got compliments from everyone that I looked like a doll. Ramsha did an amazing job and the makeup remained intact even till midnight. She came to my house and did make up for my relatives which was amazing as well and then to my hotel which was really helpful and nice. I would definitely recommend her to anyone!!!

J'Hanna was willing to meet with me at my apartment before the wedding to help me decide what "look" to go with. The consultation was very professional and much needed! J'Hanna worked HARD at my wedding--she had to get myself (the bride), bridesmaids, and my mother's hair and make up done! It was a great experience, and we all looked gorgeous. You get what you pay for!

Stephanie married me and my husband on may 6th, 2017. We had rain, hail and sun that day and she did a fantastic job dealing with our goofy antics during the ceremony and laughed with us. I would recommend stephanie to anyone. She came through for us in a pinch when we decided to move our wedding from November to may. Thank you stephanie again, you were wonderful.

Brenda was professional, charismatic, artistic, and brought out the most beautiful parts of our relationship and our wedding day. We absolutely adored working with her, and are hoping to find more moments in our life to capture with her. The BEST photography experience both of us have ever had!

There are so many videographers out there that it gets overwhelming and the costs can skyrocket. We had a budget in mind and found byBloom on Thumbtack. I compared their website videos to a few others and narrowed it down to two. I asked others for their input between the works and everyone voted for byBloom. I don't have the best eye for photography and all, but our final product was just like the example works on their website in the quality of the cinematography in the final products. The music they choose synced up perfectly. Our turnaround was less than 2 months and everyone hat has seen the video has said how great it looks. On the wedding day, the team of two was there for our first look, the ceremony, and reception- they were able to work alongside the photographer and remain there but not there. Overall it was a great experience and great final product! I do wish a DVD or USB had come included with it as I am not the most tech savvy to download from the Dropbox file but I will want to get that later.

We just got our engagement photos from Brett and his wife and they were great to work with! Completely open to our ideas/wishes, but lots of suggestions where we were unsure. They turned around our (high quality) photos quickly. We're so happy to have them photograph our wedding!

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.

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.

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.
