Richard filmed my 90 minute presentation in a studio-like setting, helped setup my office with lights, sound, cameras, etc. One camera on me, the other on my HD screen with animated slides. Many lights, got it just right, good color and no shadows. Then did a very skillful job of editing live video, screen captures and video of slides, and sound, and timing into a seamless video. Very nice look, professional. We encountered a number of minor technical challenges along the way (you always do with something like this) and he problem-solved them all, and came through with a very professional product, on budget. I am very satisfied, he's a good guy and takes pride in doing a great job.

We met Nick while he was filming and shooting my cousins wedding. He was absolutely....hands down the best photographer I'd ever seen. He very easily handled a large crowd with a small crew and took some amazing shots. We liked him so much we decided to use him for our wedding which is coming up in a couple of months. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a down to earth, humble photographer who is there to make your day special. Very competitive pricing......you can't beat it with a stick. Thanks again Nick for such an amazing time at my cousins wedding. Olivia and I will see you in a few months. Go out and use his services folks....you won't be disapointed!!

Adrienne was wonderful to work with from beginning to end for our daughter's Bat Mitzvah - she had great communication, was professional in every way, friendly and unobtrusive with her filming. The edited highlight reel she made for us told a beautiful story of the day and will be a keepsake in our family forever. We highly recommend hiring Driftwood Stories for all video and editing needs.

Lisa Sherman and Media FX video productions did spectacular work in staging and recording the Yoga 4 life dvd for us. The entire process from the scheduling, site arrangements, staging and recording was so smooth and seemless that it took all the stress away especially for people not used to this process. They worked through a whole day very patiently and tirelessly to produce an exceptionally artistically produced DVD that will be enjoyed by thousands. I recommend them without any reservations.

John was excellent. He was quick and responsive and totally professional.

When I was working at Petzl America, Jim did a great job guiding us through multiple video projects from start to finish: reviewing scripts and shot lists, managing the camera, lighting and sound; and editing. I was always impressed with his ability to get the shots we needed on a short timeline and with a streamlined kit. I enjoyed working through the edit process with him, as well—he was quick, responsive, and delivered a solid finished product every time. As a rock climber, his unique knowledge of ropes and vertical access techniques were invaluable for capturing rope-access footage.

Eric video recorded me using a state of the art HD camera and high quality tripod, of me doing gymnastic diving. I was doing acrobatic diving from various platforms up to 25 feet, (7.5 meter) high and a 1 and 3 meter Springboard at the THPRD Olympic pool. Eric was very professional in choosing various camera angles, including difficult views and positions, to obtain excellent HDTV type footage. Good fluid camera motion with close-ups, great distant shots and an eye for detail. Eric is very easy, accommodating and fun to work with. I'd recommend Eric Newland to anyone needing high quality, affordable and excellent cinematography work done for any event or just personal performance work.

    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.
