I hired Mark to video my son's wedding. He was extremely professional from the initial phone call and throughout the entire wedding day. I had several requests along the way which ranged from filming the actual ceremony to capturing specific moments during the celebration. He didn't miss a thing! I was a little concerned with the background noise of our large crowd during the ceremony and speeches, but he managed that during the editing process. Also at the editing stage, he suggested some very creative ways of presenting different aspects of the wedding. He was very unobtrusive during the the wedding and we received our video in a timely manner. I would use him again without hesitation. Mark was a pleasure to work with, and he truly captured the wedding day. The end video was fantastic. We loved it!

The photo booth was a hit! People really enjoyed themselves and as a bride I loved seeing the pictures and video messages afterwards as a keepsake. Mike was very helpful all throughout the process. They made a great custom photo print for the occasion and were extremely welcoming and accommodating! Thank you Mike and Ashley for helping to make our day a success!!

I honestly can’t say enough good things about Greg. He was absolutely wonderful. We hired him about a month before our wedding, and he was so easy to work with—so nice, quick to reply and very open to hearing about what we wanted in a wedding video. The video turned out better than we could have ever imagined. He perfectly captured the joy and magic of our day and the editing was absolutely beautiful. He delivered on everything I asked for and more. I’ve literally had dozens of people tell me our video made them cry! And in my opinion Greg’s work far exceeds videos of other companies that charge far more than he does. I simply cannot recommend Greg highly enough! Hire him and you won’t regret it.

I recently attended a wedding where this company not only took pictures and video but they also had a photo booth that was fabulous. You could take some pics and they had them printed and packaged almost immediately. What a great keepsake and what great customer service. The Image Voice staff were fun and helpful. Good job!

I have worked with Jimmy Smith on a number of projects - both professionally during his time at Delaware and personally. He has always been very efficient with getting the projects on time and they have always been of the highest quality. It is because of Jimmy's work at Delaware that I asked him to be in charge of video for my wedding and to say he did a great job would be a tremendous understatement. My wife and I could not have asked for a better product and it is a memory of our day that we will always have. If there is anyone to recommend for video production, Jimmy is at the absolute top of my list!!

Eric has all the skills. Not only can he direct a film or video, but he can manage multiple people at once, control the camera, but he does it with a bunch of passion and understanding for the people he's helping. Eric has gone above and beyond to help me launch my kickstarter project and turn my dreams into a success. (I hope!)

I worked with Jermaine on a photo shoot for my tee shirt line. I came to him with my vision and not only did he deliver some great shots, he also filmed an amazing promo video for my website and social media. Very professional, easygoing and flexible with pricing. I really enjoyed working with Jermaine and would definitely recommend working with him!

Island Productions made a video of my wedding day! She captured all of my decorations, the overall mood, and every major moment of the day. I prefer my video over the 500+ pictures of the day, because it truly captured the overall feel. Wedding days fly by, but I am able to look back and enjoy it all over again in a incredibly well edited video thanks to Island Productions.. Would recommend to anyone!

    We hired Mike to film our sororities' recruitment video. From start to finish, Mike was in direct communication, catering to our wants and visions for the project while offering creative and thoughtful ideas. He will find a way to tailor his strong, diverse skill set to accommodate your project, as he did with ours. We could not be happier with the process of creating the project with Mike and the end product. Thank you Mike!

    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.

      I am a one stop shop. Why go to one company to make your commercials then another to design your print ads then another person for your logo and business cards. If I cannot do it I'll recommend someone who can.

        About

        I began my career in video production in the late '70s when home video was in its infancy and (almost literally) invented wedding videography. Since then, I have moved into corporate, industrial, and broadcast video. I now have over thirty years of experience in all facets of video production.

        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.
