Ron was a pleasure to work with and very professional. He showed up early on the day of the event and offered to take photos in addition to filming our event. He edited and uploaded our video in an expedited manner. I now have a go-to videographer for any events in our Ohio offices thanks to him.

Tommie, did an amazing job as our videographer. He was there all day for the ceremony and for the reception. My husband wore a tiny mic, so our vows were recorded....even though I messed up on my part, we laughed and continue to laugh every time we watch our video. Listening to our vows is very special to us...great idea Tommie! He had everything we wanted and then some on our video, with awesome music to go with it. Our video captures our whole day, It's absolutely perfect and we cherish that video so much!!!! Awesome job!

He was a wonderful person to work with! Our previous wedding videographer completely destroyed our footage and Michael took the time from the very first second I messaged him, to look through all the footage/files and offer his service and advice. He was extremely responsive and very generous with his time and listened to every request we had. I wish we had hired him from the get go for our wedding! I just didn't know such an awesome person was out there! HIGHLY recommend working with him!

Nate Agin is an amazing videographer and editor. His prices are fair and he delivers quality work. At first I was skeptical since he was relatively unknown but after taking the chance I do not regret being his client.

I had a wonderful experience with Foruproductions. I was looking for a videographer to film a DVD recording of me singing and speaking to add to a biographical packet that I was designing. The recording went very well Randy was very professional and provided me with the service I needed. He then edited my product; and presented a very professional DVD that I am VERY pleased with!

I'm so happy I hired Sweet Basil as our videographer for my wedding! I was almost considering scratching this service from my budget but I'm SO glad I didn't. Now it's my favorite thing I have. The videos are great quality and the artistry for our highlight video captured the exact feeling of our special day. I'm so thankful for Jayme and her creative eye. The artistry is beyond what I imagined. She was incredibly easy to work with and very professional.

Jerod recorded my daughters wedding and created a wonderful masterpiece that they will treasure for all time! He is a pleasure to work with taking the time to listen to what you want from the day. He attended the rehearsal and got to the ceremony early enough to get the wedding party while they were getting ready. He also stayed thru the reception and had a wonderful photo on the screen before the AMAZING slideshow he created from photos and songs I had given him only 2 weeks earlier. The wedding video was done within 2 weeks of the wedding. His professionalism and attention to detail far exceed his age :-). I would recommend him to anyone with wedding or special event as a videographer! Amazing slideshow and amazing wedding video!

Rich videotaped the inventory of my parents' house. He then posted it online for my family to review prior to making their selections. Everyone commented on how easy it was to see everything. Rich was prepared for all the lighting issues that came up. He was very organized and took time to cover everything. He also had the videos ready for viewing that same evening. If I ever have to do something like this again, I would make sure the audio was better (I spoke too softly) and make sure the camera angle was better for the jewelry (needed to be directly above)

I am very pleased to write this recommendation for Cincy Recruits. Cincy Recruits videographers videoed our son's wedding day and did an awesome job before, during and after the wedding. They came very professional looking and were very easy to work with. The video will surely be a treasured part of their lives, as a reminder of a lovely, happy, cold day in November. We know that behind the video there's the work of excellent professionals and a really pleasant team. All of our family and friends who have seen the video are very impressed with the high artistic quality of the video. They truly did a fantastic job! In closing, I would highly recommend Cincy Recruits for your special day or sporting event.

    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.
