Justin prepared the video for a surprise proposal and engagement party organized by my fiance. He made sure to incorporate any ideas that we had into the video. The visual and audio effects flowed well with the video. The video was organized well and included all of the highlights from the night. We would definitely use Justin again for future events.

We have used EMA Video Productions to video our spring recital for the past two years. We do three separate shows and require a back stage monitor for the dancer to watch. He has accommodated all of our requests. His work is very professional and we have had no complaints from the parents who purchase the videos. We have used several other companies in the past, but look forward to using Ed again this year. His work is great and his fee is very reasonable.

Thanks Don and team! Not only was Don extremely responsive and professional during the beginning of the project, he went above and beyond expectations when adhering to our need for clear audio and still images. He scouted the space before we were even in town! He had the equipment need to video (with a focus on audio capturing) our corporate round-table discussion as well as a live walking tour. If we are ever in Portland again for a project we will definitely give WeCreateTv a call. Aside from his videogrpahy experience, Don is just a really nice guy and worked hard to get the job done.

I've been very surprised on a number of occasions recently, when I received audio and video recording from Jonathan. He went way beyond what I was expecting with post production work and definitely spent more time on the projects than he was paid for.

Johnny was punctual, professional, and friendly. Right away, I knew I could trust him to get the job done without supervision, and he did. I'm very satisfied with the quality of the audio and video he captured, and would definitely recommend and hire him again.

My small church is using outdated equipment for audio. We've just added a video camera and that just highlights how insufficient our setup is. I became aware of Tim through Google+ several months ago and began following him. I asked if he would have the time to come to our little church, far away from everywhere. He said he'd be happy to. Let me tell you...I was really surprised and pleased with his expertise and personable way of relating. He took plenty of time to listen to me explain what the church wanted. Then he took plenty of time to show me what he would recommend. I feel comfortable around audio equipment, and somewhat so around video, but anytime he used a term I didn't understand he would take the time to explain it to me in a way that was easily understood. His prices are very reasonable! It is obvious that he knows his stuff! He's friendly, gives you personal attention, and is willing to "make it work" with whatever budget you have available. I would highly recommend that if you are considering a new system or an upgrade or even additions to an already sufficient system, you give Tim Adams a call and schedule an appointment. You'll get a better setup at a better price than if you had done the research and purchases yourself. And he installs!

Trevor was the videographer for a wedding that I DJ'd last summer and I was truly impressed with his professionalism and level of equipment used to capture the wedding. Most wedding videographers shoot with basic DSLR cameras but Trevor uses studio quality cinema grade cameras with outstanding audio pickups. It really reflects in the finished product. His videos rival some of Portland's more established wedding videographers at about a third of the cost. I would happily work alongside Trevor again and I plan on using him for future promotional work for my own business. He's a super nice guy and I'm sure any bride would be lucky to have him capture the big day!

I have the skills to provide high-quality videography for events, meetings, weddings, etc., using industry-standard professional video and audio equipment and skills, including video editing. I am also proficient at teaching these tricks of the trade, and so can provide training for how to use a professional DSLR or other camera, audio equipment, and editing, which would be perfect for those with the equipment and time to learn, and those who are looking to acquire these skills for themselves, rather than continuously pay for them.

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.
