My experience in working with Rick was phenomenal. He was by far our most contractor we hired for our wedding. Rick was organized, professional and did everything he could to help make our day as special as possible. When I first reached out to Rick he quickly responded to my request for more information, promptly set up a time to meet, and drove from Oregon City to East Portland to meet us. He arrived early and was ready with several print outs of all his information. After hiring Rick, he periodically would check in with us to see if we had any questions. Ten days prior to our event Rick again drove across town to meet with us to go over our wedding timeline, and discuss the music we wanted played at our wedding as well as to hear our expectations for the day. On the day of our wedding Rick arrived early, set up his gear and came with several microphone options for our officiant. Rick's read of our guests was spot on and played music that got everyone from our grandparents to our nieces and nephews on the dance floor. My guests were so impressed with his music selections that some even approached him to see if he would be willing to DJ their own weddings. In all, I was very pleased to work with Rick and would recommend him to anyone. Jordan

Overall David's music was perfect. Even though some songs weren't my favorite, they seemed to be the crowd's favorite! He knows his stuff. I have never seen a wedding dance floor like mine. At the end of the night on the last song we had to have had at least 50-60 people still dancing. The dance floor never went empty for any song which shows he is playing the right tunes. I took a star away because I was a little frustrated with the communication during the day of. I had a wedding planner who I wanted all the coordination to go through and although they reviewed things- he still came up to the groom and I several times during the wedding to confirm if we were doing speeches next or dances next, etc. When there is so many things going on, we would have appreciated him going through our planner. Also, the planner had had final payment for him and at the end of the night he tracked the groom and I and several of the wedding party down for payment. I didn't appreciate that during our big day, it was the last thing we were wanting to deal with and it was a bit embarrassing to be around guests when he asks for that. All in all, communication before was great and music was excellent. Thank you!

I couldn't be happier with my decision the hire Joe from Noteworthy DJ's for my brother's wedding reception. His prices were affordable and his service was excellent! Upon first contacting Joe, he was prompt in responding to emails. He met with us prior to the reception to discuss our wants and needs. Joe was respectful, professional, and really easy to work with. On the day of the reception he was set up and ready to go early. His equipment was great. During the reception he played music that we had requested and some of his own selections that got everybody out of their seats to dance. Joe was attentive and helped us stick to our 4-hour timeline.The reception was a great party and we attribute much of that success to Joe! I wouldn't hesitate to hire Joe again in the future!

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.

Ryan Erlandsen Photography is amazing. From wedding photos to family photos, he's always provided the best customer service and amazing, quality photos. We've used him multiple times in the past 5 years and have referred him to others who have been just as pleased. He's easy to work with, listens to your ideas, wants, needs, and is professional. Our family looks forward to many more photo sessions to capture special moments with Ryan and highly recommend him.

Richard did such a great job with our wedding video. My husband and I didn't have a large budget, but really wanted a wedding video because that's what you have left after your big day. Richard's price was very reasonable, and honestly he could charge more for the quality and personalization he puts in. Richard captured a lot of my favorite parts of the day. He was incredibly professional and was willing to drive a long distance to shoot my wedding. We are very grateful we hired him. The wedding video is by far the best purchase you can make for your wedding.

Will did a great job helping us on our wedding day! We had a real DIY wedding, and did a lot of work beforehand (making decorations / other needed items, guest list, invites, and vendor coordination among other things). Will met with us beforehand and gave us good suggestions and advice. When the big day finally came it was awesome to have someone to take all that off our hands, and coordinate everything so we could really enjoy it. Will organized all of our family and friends who wanted to help into teams of “wedding superstars”, which made all of the setup a breeze. There were a few curveballs that came up, and Will was always ready to step in and make sure things got done. Thanks for helping us make our day special!

Couldn’t be happier with Rob`s work for our pregnancy shoots! I love my maternity photos – it was such a wonderful thing to do just before giving birth! Rob was absolutely incredible to work with. He is experienced, very creative and his warm personality brings out the best in his subjects, especially if you are unsure of how to "act" in front of the camera. He makes you feel completely relaxed and at ease, and it truly makes a difference in your photos. I have to say Rob actually makes taking photos fun! I'd consider myself not photogenic until I started working with Rob - he really works his magic and can give just the right direction to make all the difference. I absolutely love my maternity photos and can’t believe how fantastic Rob made me look just a week before giving birth! Him and his assistant were patient but professional, giving us tips throughout the session to make sure the pictures came out great. At every moment they were kneeling, bending, standing on chairs just to get the shot they wanted. Rob is very dedicated to get the best shots, it is clear though that he truly loves what he does. Robs photos are stunning, natural and proudly hanging throughout our home. We will treasure our photos for years to come and will likely be back for future family shoots. Rob is also great at portraits and wedding photography. Check out his blog for loads more cool pics. He has an incredible eye for the "right" shot, being a top notch photographer and we are so happy we hired him! I would recommend him for any special occasion you want to remember forever.

DJ Melvin was absolutely wonderful! He timed our ceremony music perfectly, he was on time for setting up, played everything I wanted to hear, and was super accommodating to guest requests and slight changes to our wedding timeline. I wrote him lots of emails and he always responded enthusiastically and was down for anything. DJ Melvin even burned our wedding CDs for "our love has a soundtrack" favors for an extra fee! What a sweet and caring guy, on top of all that. Our wedding turned out to be the best day ever and DJ Melvin definitely had something to do with that! Thanks Melvin!!!!!!

Don performed the wedding ceremony for my husband and I nine years ago in Portland, Oregon. At the time, neither of us belonged to a church and we weren't sure who was going to marry us. When my parents reminded me that Don was a pastor it was immediately settled that he would be our officiant! He made our wedding relaxed and fun. I always laugh when remembering that he asked my dad, "who presents this woman to this hunka hunk of burning love?" It was the perfect way to relax a nervous bride and groom. :) We had such a wonderful experience with Don that we would recommend him to anyone!

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.

What is a wedding planner?

A wedding planner is a professional service provider whose job it is to organize and execute all the details of a couple’s wedding. A wedding planner can be contracted at any stage in the wedding planning process to help to any degree the couple is willing to pay for. Wedding planning is similar to event planning in that a planning team handles the coordination of multiple wedding elements including catering, venue, guests, entertainment, decor, transportation and more. Anyone who has ever been involved in a wedding can confirm that wedding planning is hard work. Experience brings wisdom when it comes to avoiding or resolving day-of challenges. There is no legal regulatory body that oversees or certifies wedding planning as an industry. Anyone who chooses can call themselves a wedding planner. When looking for a wedding planner, be sure to read reviews, and make smart hiring decisions by asking about licenses and insurance.

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.

How much does it cost for a photographer for a wedding?

Finding the right wedding photographer can make a big difference for your ceremony. Nationally, the average wedding photographer’s price ranges from $800 to $1,000, but costs can be much higher in areas like Chicago, New York or Los Angeles where some couples spend $2,000 to $5,000 or more for the photographer they want. Factors that can affect your wedding photographer prices include the photographer’s reputation and experience. Heavy hitters can command top rates, especially during wedding-season weekends. Day of the week also affects your cost. You may get a $200 discount on wedding photographer prices if you get married on a Friday in November rather than a Saturday in June. Time onsite is also an important cost factor. Hiring a photographer to snap photos from the moment you wake up until after last call at the reception is going to cost more than five hours of pictures during the day. Multiple photographers, special lighting, and videography will also increase your costs. Ultimately you want to find someone who has a style you love and can provide the number of edited shots you want for a price you can handle. Learn more about hiring a wedding photographer.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
