I have had used several photographers in the past for various events, none came close to the service & skill that Sumfin provides. I was accustomed to receiving much less for far greater expense. Sumfin not only captured my event from every possible angle, but they offered honest realtime suggestions that enhanced our event! In short I highly recommend Sumfin for your event.

Dj Eldog McPherson has been been my Dj for over 16 years. He is not only a great guy. He is professional, always on time, and makes the party. I have never had call to confirm a date, he confirms before the scheduled event. I've even referred to him people who's had a no show. Dj and he was able fill in. Dj Eldog with hands down is the best Dj around. I would highly recommend him.

    PhotoVisi0ns took photos for a protest that I helped to organize. These photos were critical in capturing the event, and truly represented what it felt like to be a part of it. I would 100% recommend anyone to have PhotoVisi0ns take their photos! I was so happy with the results.

      Crile is fantastic to work with! She is a gifted photographer, able to capture expressions of wonder and delight during festivals and events.

      I cannot say enough wonderful things about Matthew, and this company! I used Matthew for the videography for my wedding last September. Not only did he show up early, stay late, was professional and kind to all of our guests, everything you would want in a videographer, but the product he gave us was exactly what we were wanting! He captured all of the important moments beautifully, and even the additional shots that I would have never thought of. My husband and I are beyond grateful that we decided to have Matthew as our videographer, and are able to watch our special day again and again! I would highly recommend him and his team! Since the wedding we have also taken family portraits with him, which turned out amazing! You will not be disappointed if you decided to hire this company!

          I hired James Southerland as the videographer for my annual Mothers day brunch. The event had over 200 guests. James did a phenomenal job! He came to survey the venue the day before the event and put together an amazing promo video of the prep and set up! On the day of the event, he was on time, professional and interacted well with staff. He was very detailed... captured all the footage I wanted and then some. I received the edited video in a timely manner, and was most pleased with the finished product! I would recommend his services to anyone looking for video or photography.

            Our prices are very reasonable, and my brother and I are extremely personable. We have both been passionate about filming since we were kids, so it seemed a perfect fit.

            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.

            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.  

            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. 

            Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
