Chuck was the photographer for my wedding. He and his daughter did a wonderful job with the photos. They were very patient with us and took all the poses we had suggested. They had some pretty good ideas for photos too. Chuck even gave us some of his time after the night was over to take more photos we wanted that we didnt have time to take before the reception. I don't think there was one photo that was taken we did not like.

I gave David Paul a rating of 5 stars because the word "Outstanding" perfectly describes him and his work. David Paul was my wedding photographer and it was the best and easiest decision I made my whole wedding. Not only was he phenomenal to work with but I love love love my wedding photos. They are just simply beautiful and timeless just the way I like them (and I am a wedding photographer too so I should know!) He is so great with people. My family just adored him. And I have gorgeous high quality photos from my wedding day to treasure forever. I couldn't have asked for anything more!

We hired Mark for our wedding of 150 guests. He provided the ceremony music as well as the reception. Mark officiated the reception and was AWESOME!!!! Two thumbs up!!!! He kept the wedding party to the timeline. Our guests were very impressed with the music and the high energy that Mark brought to the party! We would give 10 stars if we could!!! Mark was very accommodating with the planning of music and was very helpful when we had questions or wanted to change something. We highly recommend Mark and would definitely hire him again for our next event!!!! Thanks again for the great service and for helping in making our special day AWESOME!!!!!

My husband and I couldn't have picked a better photographer for our wedding. Tony was wonderful. The pictures he took turned out so beautiful and perfectly captured our perfect day. He was also very personable, had good ideas for poses, and made us feel comfortable and natural getting the pictures. Communication was excellent, and the pricing was great. I'm very happy in our choice and would recommend Tony to anyone!

We hired Terry for our wedding photography. We knew she was the right pick for us when we met her; she was super personable and seemed genuinely excited to photograph our wedding. The price she quoted us was awesome, and it included a free engagement photo shoot. She was also able to work within our budget and with our (relatively) short time schedule. I just got the photos back from the engagement shoot (she hasn't done our wedding yet). Not only did we get the engagement photos back very quickly, but they also turned out fantastic! She was fun to work with and genuinely brought out smiles in both of us, which totally shone through in the final photos. Seriously, Terry is a joy to work with and I highly recommend her.

Outsourced Soirée catered for my wedding shower. From the very beginning Veronica and her staff went above and beyond, personalizing not only food choices, but tables linens, decor and overall ambience. The staff was friendly and extremely eager to please- going well beyond their duties. They assisted in set up, break down and clean up of the event. Our home and kitchen were under construction, outsourced soirée didn't miss a beat even in the midst of the chaos! I had an outstanding experience with this company and plan to use them moving forward. I would highly recommend their services!

We hired BG Video last minute to film our wedding and put together a highlight video for us. Greg was very easy to work with, accommodating, and the end product is fantastic! Best of all, it was turned around to us within a couple weeks. My wife and I were very happy with BG Video, and definitely recommend their services

Great value, and I got so many compliments about how great the wedding video was. Keeping the raw footage is nice for just me and my hubby to watch, but the trailer always makes me smile and will cherish.

Beautiful wedding photos! He was early to our location just to make sure there was no added anxiety, and was wonderful to work with! He was flexible with different poses and knew exactly how to use the background and natural lighting for gorgeous pictures, and I can't say enough about the amount of photos we got. To say that the cost was of value is definitely an understatement... you will not find another photographer to give you so many pictures at such an excellent cost.

I am so glad my friend recommended Isaac William's. He saved the day! We really enjoyed working with him. I felt like other photographers were trying to take advantage of me. Their prices were ridiculous. Isaac provided a very modest quote and very exceptional work. He was a prayer answered! He and his crew did everything we discussed. They were on time, professionally dressed, manageable, creative, knowledgeable and I could go on and on about how much my family loved them. Most importantly I am so happy with the moments they captured and the quality of the photos and video. I will never forget the beautiful moments of my wedding thanks to Isaac and his crew.

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 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.

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.
