Pacific Sweethearts (Matt) provided the most excellent videography service. He was charismatic, energetic, and his camera work turned out stunning. I could not be happier with the quality of the HD video. Everything was fantastic and we keep getting compliments on how great our engagement video turned out. I give Pacific Sweethearts 5 stars and 2 thumbs up. Excellent Photo/Video provider!

I needed to photoshop 2 pictures for my mom's memorial, and I had a 24 hour time limit. Tim contacted me immediately, gave me a great price and was done in 15 minutes. In one of the pics, my dad had to be removed, but it made my mom's shoulder look too small. Tim filled in the area by reconstructing a very difficult patterned blouse to fill in the void. Then he stayed in touch via email until I went to Kinko's and had the pics enlarged. He was very concerned that the project worked out well for us. Great work, great price, great guy!

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.

A couple of words describe Kyle's work... creative and responsive to what is needed, be it at the moment as he did with my wife and I as we clowned in a hospital or the short video he did with Kirby Brumfield highlighting our clown ministry. Sensitive and creative in the use of his techniques and open to suggestions from those of us being videoed. He did these two with just a few words from us as to what we did and he was able to "picture-ize" this ministry.

Ian is a passionate professional artist. Vertica is a one stop shop production company, but specifically as a boom operator and video editor, he has been a joy to work with. Ian has extraordinary work ethic, he's creative, he'll goes the extra mile and he's punctual. He is also a talented producer and director with a very clear vision in both commercial and narrative film. I look forward to working with him again and keeping track of his work going onward.

Hiring a photographer out of state always makes me nervous but Taylor put my mind at ease. He was super responsive to my questions and was very professional - even when I ran into some hiccups regarding scheduling. When I received Taylor's photos I was instantly blown away and only wish I had more projects for him! I would definitely recommend Taylor and would use him again - he has a great eye and the response from his photos has been awesome!

I have produced two films with Kai and am in production of two additional films. Kai is a pleasure to work with, fun to be around, and a complete perfectionist in the best sense of the word. He creates stunning visuals and crisp audio. His editing is refined and intuitive. Kai's combination of state-of-the-art equipment and attention to detail make for the highest quality outcome. No drama, not games, and everything on schedule. You can't go wrong with Kai.

I worked with Todd on a feature-length documentary film, for which we were a crew of two: I as writer, Todd as videography, editor, sound mixer, and everything else. His mastery of the equipment and attention to detail were outstanding.

So many videographers can showcase decent technical skills, but not everyone can tell a story like Cynthia can. Her background in anthropology and her ability to deeply listen and see people shows in her work; every business and individual I've sent to Cynthia for video production has been deeply satisfied with how authentically and delightfully they were represented in the final product. As someone who has also been her client, too, I can vouch for her ability to really listen to goals and find great solutions for achieving them. Working with Cynthia is great fun and the results speak for themselves.

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.

    I've worked with Casey on several projects and seen firsthand his exceptional abilities as an editor, director, videographer, and sound mixer/boom op. Casey has a solid knowledge of filmmaking and can comfortably manage a set, or fill a number of roles. He has a great eye, is exceptionally creative, and has a great deal of technical knowledge. Whether you are looking for someone to shoot, record, edit, or direct your project, I highly recommend Casey.

      Brett is a camera wizard! I have always felt shy in front of the camera and un-photogenic. I have never felt so comfortable as I did working with Brett. His presence and care are priceless, beautifully creating the optimal container for anyone in front of his lens to relax into naturalness, producing perfectly amazing photos and video. I have never looked for another photographer and videographer since.

        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.
