We had the photo booth for my daughter's 13th birthday party. 30 Teenagers attended, A&A Photography was awesome! Party themed photo strips, everyone got great colored photos to take home, my daughter even got a photo album put together with personal messages from her friends included! Adam and Alicia were exceptional! Very easy to hire, informative, flexible, quick with response to any question, personable, and very, very, reasonably priced! Wonderful experience from start to finish! Last but not least my daughter and her friends said it was, "THE BEST BIRTHDAY PARTY EVER!". I would highly recommend A&A Photography for any event and will personally be using them again in the future for any and all events needing pictures!

As a non-profit organization that grants wishes to seniors citizens, we work with dozens and dozens of photographers all over the country. Chris did an awesome job capturing the essence, the smiles and the joy that our wish recipient and her mother experienced being reunited after 20 years. The pictures he took were of superior clarity, quality and creativity. From his responsiveness in communication, to the speed at which he got the photos back to us, we were very pleased with Chris, his professionalism and expertise. We would not hesitate to recommend Chris to anyone looking for a stellar photographer and hope to partner with him again in the future. ~Wish of a Lifetime

Karl was both professional and enthusiastic. He was prompt on arrival and even put in the extra time both while filming our event and while editing the video. We are glad we chose Karl as our videographer and hope that he enjoyed our civil war period wedding. Thank you so much for everything Angel & Brian 11/15/15

I would definitely recommend using Precious Moments Videography to capture your big day. It's so amazing to be able to sit down with your spouse and relive the day all over again. Having the actual DVD is equally if not more important than having the photos. Precious Moments Videography is reasonably priced, very responsive thru the process, and Alex lets you review your DVD before making the final product. Overall both my husband and I were very happy with our DVD!

I rented some DJ equipment (CDJ's, mics) for an event I was performing at in Pittsburgh and everything was in great shape and sounded awesome! Definitely helps when you have the right equipment.

I first worked with DRM for a charity fundraiser. DRM came highly recommended and we elected to use their services for event planning and booking entertainment. The DJ was fabulous. He kept it lively and even changed things up as we noticed our crowd was more mature than anticipated. Such a pleasure to work with - which is generally not true of DJs. On the event planning side, DRM performed on time and as promised and on budget! Not surprisingly, this will not be the last time I use them!

Curt was wonderful to work with. He was engaged in making sure every aspect of the videography was covered and helped think through questions we hadn't even considered. His staff has been as responsive in the post event editing as Curt was before and during our event. Our organization would absolutely work with Mirage MarCom again, given the opportunity.

Beverly Boy Productions was great from the moment I contacted them. Tavares was extremely helpful setting it up, especially in such a short amount of time. Our videographer, Brad, was professional, precise and did a wonderful job onsite and afterwards during editing. He made sure we were happy with our final project. I would definitely recommend this business to anyone who is looking for a friendly, successful experience.

Let me fill you in on a one of the best kept secrets in videography- that is Ryan Sanderson. My wedding video was produced beautifully, and was so much fun to film! We watch it time and time again, it never gets old... Months before my wedding I was on the fence about having a videographer to begin with... Family members wanted it more than I did. I had seen other productions of other couples weddings, and thought that they were "OK" but they just didn't excite me. My thought process was that if I were to have a videographer, they were to be the best; I didn't want to settle on anything less. As time got closer I had probably seen every wedding video made from every wedding in central PA, western PA, and even parts of Ohio... They were "meh" to say the least. Somehow I was fortunate enough to come across one of Ryan's productions, I was blown away! After watching one video, I had to watch another- to make sure it wasn't a fluke of having one great video among some okay ones... HE WAS NO FLUKE, HE IS THE REAL DEAL. Don't believe me, take a look for yourself. Ryan captures the best parts of your day, captures the raw emotions, and turn it all into something magical. My video has only been released for a week now and family members, friends, co-workers, friends of friends, strangers, all who have see our wedding video is astonished how amazing it was put together. How well the editing done, how well the story is put together, how well the music is matched, everything! I can't recommend Ryan enough! Although his presence with online public recommendation is hard to find, he is the real deal and needs the recognition he deserves! Ryan Sanderson, the best kept secret in videography. His work comes toe to toe with the "big dogs", and in my opinion is better... The best!

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.
