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.

Ricardo did an excellent job of videotaping our 50th wedding anniversary. Since we have a family member who does video editing, we just needed the videotaping service. Ricardo is reasonably priced and we enjoyed working with him. Dave & Kay Klick Beaverton, OR

Karney photographed our outdoor wedding. He was fantastic. It was in the forest with odd lighting and this worried me a little. However, the photos all turned out amazing. They looked like they were straight out of a fairytale. Not only were the photographs wonderful, but Karney was really great to work with as wrll. He went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect. I highly recommend this photographer.

I worked with Fibre Creative on a very special project that was near and dear to my heart: a video celebrating my coming out as a queer man. Coming out was the hardest and most emotional thing I have ever had to do and Mike and Jenn could not have been more sensitive, professional, and fun to work with! They consulted with me at great lengths to uncover the essence of what I had gone through and the final product was creative, thoughtful, and sweet. The quality of their work was astounding, and their storytelling was masterful. They went above and beyond by interviewing some of my best friends and family members to create a fuller picture of my life. They also took still photographs which I have used professionally and on social media. I could not be happier with them! I wholeheartedly recommend them for any videography/photography project out there. Check them out! PS: For the those interested, check out the video they made here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oh-CtG2jDQc

Nick was our wedding photographer and he did an outstanding job. He listened to our needs and requests before the big day and his fee was more than fair. Nick did an excellent job directing everyone during family photos and even redirecting some excited guests to clear the way so he could get good shots. After our photos came back, we were overjoyed at how he captured our wedding with attention to detail and capturing our joy and love. Overall a wonderful experience working with Nick.

They did our wedding video and did an AMAZING job! Everything about the video was perfection and makes me cry every time! I can't even count how many compliments we received for our wedding video. David, Olivia, and Johnathan were very professional and got tons of footage between the three of them. They used two cameras and a drone and the footage they combined for the video was breathtaking. I would highly recommend them to anyone!!

John was excellent. He was quick and responsive and totally professional. The quality of the videography and the editing were both excellent, and even during the filming, he provided helpful tips and input to make the interviews and the filming better. We would hire him again in a second for Portland area filming.

Katie was amazing to work with for our engagement and wedding photos! We couldn't have asked for a better photographer. She was always quick to respond if there were any questions and she worked hard to give us all the shots we wanted. My husband and I both loved how Katie put her heart into making sure that we had the best pictures for our special day. Katie is very creative and she is so fun to work with!

    TDH photography did a whole day session for my wedding. Even though it was his first time doing it, he did such an excellent job. He captured all the beautiful moments, very random but also very meaningful moment too. All of the pictures came back so beautiful, high quality and professional. He also was so professional, showed up on-time, didn't leave till checking with us. He is such a hard worker, didn't say much but very happy and delightful the whole time. I felt so peaceful to have him capture the most important day of my life. Will highly recommend his service 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.

      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.
