The overall experience with Gary was fantastic! We were able to plan out in advance what exactly I wanted and kept in constant communication throughout. My proposal was in Times Square where Gary met me an hour before the proposal to talk logistics and wire me up with a microphone, so everything could not only be recorded visually but also with audio. Thank you Gary for the amazing work you did and capturing such a special moment, specially with us flying in from Florida!

I’ve known Steve for over 20 years, and have worked with him on many projects including some audio/video work we’ve completed together recently for a corporate client and a not-for-profit organization. As a professional photographer my work is always top notch, and so is his. Steve is a remarkable talent and his work shows that.

Lon Van Eaton is the most creatively brilliant musician I've had an opportunity to work with. His arrangements with the songwriter's melodies are amazing. His skills at creating videos to the music are even more impressive. He challenges me to be a better writer, and I am fortunate we met.

Our company, World Events Forum, hired Joe (JFu) to record a 2.5 conference in Arlington, VA. His punctuality, follow up on all requests, professionalism and, yes, standing (literally and figuratively) for the duration of the event makes him our only choice for any event we coordinate/plan/organize in the DC area. Reliability is key - Joe will be there to connect with the audio visual company, cover all aspects of videography and deliver an impeccable product. Bravo!!!

Stemspot took a ton of clips and ideas I had in my head of how I thought my song could be visually complemented and wove them into a seamless video that captured the spirit of the song and moved along to the rhythm. It's the best visual representation I've seen of any of my music and since this project in 2008, I know he's only improved with regard to staging, storyboarding of live shots, and overall production quality.

    Ken and Liz were great to work with! Our highlight real was spectacular! We paid for the 8 hour package and I'm glad we did. We were able to capture a first look and some pre-ceremony shenanigans. We paid half of our balance up front and the other half upon receiving our dvds (which was delivered in person with a lovely card and candle!). The quality of our dvds was pretty good. Some shots were a bit shaky and sometimes the audio was a little hard to understand but overall, for the price we feel as though we got a great deal. We are so happy to have found them to capture the video for our wedding, it was worth the money! Thanks again!

      For our wedding last August, my husband and I wanted to have something creative to show during the cocktail hour while we took pictures. We decided on creating a scripted video on how we met and our love story and we asked Tsombawi if he could help us. He was more than willing to help and even showed up at my fiance's house at 7:15am to record our video. He was with us every step of the "production" and made sure that while he was editing, everything in the video was what we wanted. The night before our wedding, Tsombawi was putting finishing touches on our video, when he discovered that part of it was not working correctly. Instead of just telling us that it couldn't be fixed and we wouldn't have our video to show at the wedding, he stayed up most of the night (getting only 3 hours of sleep) and reworked the video. Needless to say, the next day, the video was up and running at our cocktail hour and we received SO many compliments on it and how creative it was. Tsombawi is a hard worker in what he does AND he produces high quality work!

      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.
