Jason with Steady State Studios provided exactly what I wanted out of my wedding videography! I knew I wanted the ceremony recorded but a $3000+ video package was not in the budget. I discovered Steady State only about two months before my wedding and emailed and talked with Jason on the phone. We were able to create a package that worked perfectly for our needs. Jason was great with the guests and captured all the important moments. Once the video is created he allows you to make changes, however, we didn't see any necessary. We received an edited full length recording and a shorter "highlights" film.

I've been doing the marketing at Jugs Sports for over 35 years, in that time I've had the chance to work with many companies that specialized in video & photography, though they all did a professional job, not one of them delivered the "Total Package" like Front Porch Branding. Myself, the people I work with & the people I work for give Front Porch Branding our highest recommendation. If you're serious about your company, you owe it to yourself to give Jerrad & Ethan a call. I guarantee you'll be glad you did.

I found myself in a dilemma when the video editor I hired told me it would take 2-3 weeks for my final product. Tim responded to my inquiry quickly, and set off to work. He listened to what I wanted, and created magic, which was a miracle with the not so stellar wedding video I had. Duclos Media did a wonderful job, and I wouldn't hesitate to hire him again.

We hired Richard to film the memorial for my 26 year old brother who was killed by a driver who fell asleep. Needless to say, the sudden loss struck my family so hard and we were frantic to get a service together while in so much pain. Richard was so professional when he showed up and instantly put our family at ease. He took care of everything and worked with family and friends when we could no longer help organize and plan. When we received the video of the service, we were amazed at how he didn't just film everything and put it on a dvd, he edited it into a beautiful story of my brother's life. I would recommend Richard to anyone looking for a videographer who puts pride in his work and delivers a story vs. just another video. Kat T. Vancouver, Washington

Shinee Studios did a fabulous job. They were amazing in the pre-planning process and they gave us all the necessary tips to get the best pictures out of us. Appreciate how patient they were all along the shoot, just amazed by their work. Great quality, wonderful pics and videos. The personalized video (Varsham Mundhuga Song) is an epic, they captured every moment and made it memorable for us. Just can’t thanks them enough. We couldn't be more thrilled and could not have received more compliments from family and friends on how wonderful our photos were. Would highly recommend them!!

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.

I found Don online and inquired about shooting a music video. Don was clearly the most qualified person for the job out of the few people I reached out to. His enthusiasm about my music and the ease I had of communicating what I wanted was what really sold me though. In the end Don went above and beyond my expectations. His attention to detail, his timeliness and his input was great. He was not pushy about my using his ideas but his ideas were excellent and I was happy to hear them and incorporate them in the video. That was not the case for a video I made with another film maker before I met Don, quite the opposite. I had full confidence about letting him take over the editing and I'm so glad I did. He came up with something much better than I ever could have. I'm hoping to do another video soon with Don. He's fantastic and very highly recommended.

I was in Vietnam making a corporate video and met up with Gerald through a mutual friend. Having worked with many directors before on various commercial shoots I am familiar with the differing levels of service that are available. Gerald was patient, professional and knowledgeable. Working with our motley crew of both local and foreign actors, the series of commercials was shot, edited and delivered without a hitch and far exceeding our expectations.

Thanks for the opportunity - such an extraordinary talent and professional, a joy to work with, who was referred to me by a colleague I respect and admire - well, that's enough for me. Carey is a wonderful creative collaborator, as is her entire organization. First of all, Carey is a remarkable listener, who reviewed my goals and needs for the video, including sound, editing, titling, then offered tactful suggestions for improvement and/or variations on the theme, ran those by me, and we reached a creative understanding of how to proceed, painlessly. The folks at AARP/Oregon were very pleased with the results - and you'll find the program at: http://www.lifeloveandhealth.com/aarp%E2%80%94life-reimagined/ Please, if you have any questions, contact me at: chris@bodylanguage.org

    Tamara Sloboda was a phenomenal videographer to work with. My wife and I are able to relive our best day of our lives through the amazing wedding video that was created by TessFilms. I would highly consider using her for your wedding. Very professional, always serious, business like and very easy to work with. The communication was important for us and she went above and beyond what we expected. The best surprise was when we were handed our video in a little cute, wrapped present. Thank you so much Tamara Sloboda!!!

Her work was prompt and exactly what I wanted AND within my budget! She is my photographer that I refer to all of my family and friends!

      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.
