First Blush Photos far exceeded our expectations. We were on a tight budget to video an amateur concert, so we only expecting one camera angle and no editing. They provided two camera angles, did extensive editing between the two cameras, and zoomed in and changed the camera angles as appropriate for what was happening on stage. We were only expecting to get this on a DVD or a hard drive. We received a Youtube link and Dropbox link, which was great for sharing among the group. The final product was very professional and the sound quality was excellent. We are so glad that we went with First Blush and have this production recorded. First Blush was excellent to work with and delivered a polished final product promptly. Will definitely use them to record our next concert!

Patrick did an amazing job capturing my big day on video and for a very very affordable price. So far I've only seen the 4 minute highlight video which I'm in love with so I know the full length video of our wedding will be amazing. Patrick was very through him and his assistant went to multiple locations to film every aspect of the day. We received the highlight video less than one week after the wedding. I'm so excited to see the rest of the footage. I know I chose right when I went with Patrick and Shamrock Studios.

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 was going to propose to my fiance and I was on the lookout for an experienced photographer. I live out of state and was looking for someone who had worked with the Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens. From the moment I interacted with Arka he was really professional and helped me make the proposal extra special. He asked if we wanted a video of the proposal and he would hide the camera. I said sure, little did I know how amazing that decision would turn out later. Working with him relieved the anxiety because I knew I was in good hands with all the work he has done in the past. That day I was running late, and he was easy to coordinate timings and he was able to capture my precious moment of when I got down on one knee. He was hiding in the bushes yet I knew he was there capturing away. We had about a 45 min photo shoot and he had no problem taking as many photos as possible. I want to really thank you Arka for taking the time to compose the video of the proposal. Both my fiance and I live in different states. This video brought back those precious moments and has touched us so deeply. He knows how to empathize with his clients and focus on what those precious moments are. Arka was really easy and professional to work with after the shoot. He gave us all the good shots from the shoot and was willing to go back and tough up anything we mentioned. He got back to us in 1-2 days with all the photos from the shoot and it was easy for us to look at them online. He really is an AMAZING photographer for a low price and would HIGHLY RECOMMEND him.

We hired Dave King with Steel City Drones who took incredible aerial video of our house in Pittsburgh, PA with his drone and over 130 beautiful high definition photos. The editing, music and 4K high definition video were out of this world. The video is currently also being watched by friends and family in southern Europe and the Europeans are scratching their heads about the quality of the photographs and video. Highly recommended service with no reservation.

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!

    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.
