We got Platinum's budget package after not planning on having a wedding Videographer we realized that our grandmothers were not able to travel to the wedding. With the small budget we had left we reached out to Platinum Fire Productions so we'd have our wedding on video to show our Grandmothers next time we visited and they did great! When we realized one grandmother was in poor health we were hoping to have some raw footage to bring with us to visit since they weren't done editing yet. Platinum put the raw footage on a USB for us to fly to texas with so we'd be able to share our wedding day! They explained the video and audio wouldn't line up since the editing wasn't done yet, but they were still willing to give us what they had so we could bring something with us. I couldn't recommend PFP more! They were a great asset to our wedding and provided us with video that we will cherish for years! Thank you!!!

Ryan did great work. Our company needed an upgrade to our current product photos we use. Our photos were taken from 7 years ago by an in house employee, and as our company grew and so did the need for having better photos. Ryan was here to fulfill that need for us. He came in and was very professional and knowledgeable about product photography. He was on time and produced great work at a very good price. Ryan took pictures of approx. 50 different skus , and we will soon upload our new high quality pictures to our website, Amazon, ebay and wal-mart market place stores after post editing is done. Furthermore, Ryan even helped us shoot product demonstration videos for new sku's as well. As being in business for 14 years as an online seller of pro-audio gear, I cant tell you how important quality pictures are to boost revenue sales. If you are thinking about upgrading your product photos, then I highly recommend R+M photography as it will be well worth the cost. We will be using Ryan in the future for our companies future product photography needs. Ace Division Inc. President- Mike Jelliff

Lauren went out of her way to make the best product for our wedding. She was passionate about her work and great to work with from months before our ceremony. She captured all of the best moments, had us get the great poses and all of the on-the-fly events. She has high tech equipment and "booms" for gentle panning. Lauren has a talented eye for composition and spent a lot effort in editing the different sources of video and audio tracks into a truly professional masterpiece that brought tears to my wife when we relived the moments. She really cares and put her heart into her work. Thank you for such wonderful memories of our wedding!!!

Jordan was awesome! He is amazingly creative and had such unique ideas for our save the date video. We filmed at night time on Mt. Washington, and Jordan purchased different colored smoke bombs to incorporate in our video. Our video looked fantastic and we received tons of compliments! Jordan also had a quick turn around time and was able to get our video edited quickly and efficiently. I would recommend Jordan to anyone looking for top quality work! On top of his talent, Jordan also has an incredibly caring personality and it is very obvious that he is pursuing his passion.

Jeff was excellent to work with. He was very easy going, well-prepared, skilled with the camera/lighting/audio, and offered great input and creative ideas. He has a wide variety of equipment that he can easily handle on his own, but is also able to provide additional reliable and skilled crew members if needed. I'd most definitely hire him again and highly recommend anyone else to as well.

Scott is a rockstar editor whether you need a music video, a small business video, or a video for a major corporation. I have counted on him numerous times to edit videos for clients of all shapes and sizes, but most noticeably he has edited work for my VIP clients - we´re talking about some of the world´s top multinational companies and he has always come through - and in fact he has "saved the day" more than once. And for the agencies out there - if you got clients breathing down your neck wanting top quality yesterday, you better put Scott on speed dial! Scott is friendly, funny, a fantastic listener and "gets you" fast. He is collaborative, creative, intuitive, flexible, shows you how the video can even be better than you were expecting. A true creative professional who puts the client above everything else.

Cut 'N'Run productions was in charge of our photography and videography for our wedding. We couldn't have asked for a better crew. From their professionalism to their outgoing personalities we never had any issues with this team. Our photos are beautiful, and our wedding video and trailer brought all of our family members to tears! On our wedding day this summer we had terrible rains and even a tornado but the crew never let us down. You could barely tell that we shot through the rain and they kept me calm!This team will work with you and personalize anything to make sure your day is what you haven envisioned your entire life!

If you have any need for any kind of studio audio, or videography, local commotion has got you covered. The owner Gregg, endorses my drum company, and has produced multiple top notch videos for my brand, with stellar audio, and crystal clear video. I've also been given a bunch of cds from bands and other musical acts that Gregg has recorded, and I was floored. To have somebody that is a musician himself mixing, mastering and recording your album is an absolute blessing. So hit up local commotion today, you'll be glad you did!

I'm a very down to earth kind of guy.. I understand that everybody can't afford an extravagant photographer or videographer, which is why I make my rates as cost friendly as possible. The quality of my work doesn't suffer from the affordable prices.. The final product is nothing short of a professional and strongly delivered video.

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.
