Marcin was the perfect person to videotape our wedding. We needed someone who was professional, last minute, and would work with our limited budget. Marcin was totally professional, used three cameras to shoot our wedding, and his personality was completely friendly and wonderful! He really made sure that we got the footage we needed to watch these videos for the rest of our lives! We would recommend him to anyone!

RKH Production truly transformed our wedding, from start to finish they took our wedding to a whole new level. We were a little nervous to book at first but asking around there is no one else better in the entertainment industry. Right off the bat we were walked through the booking process by knowledgable, friendly staff. Then they helped throughout the whole planning process, RKH answered each and every one of our questions. Then when our big day arrived we were astounded by the way everything looked and our DJ was hands drown PHENOMENAL!! I would recommend RKH Production to anyone looking for an out-of-this-world experience!

It was really amazing to work with Erica Ashlee productions. She was very professional, arrived early, and got all the shots we wanted. My first photographer quit suddenly and she was an amazing fill in. I wished I would have went with her from the start. On the day of the wedding it was cloudy and slightly raining. She took some amazing pictures and it doesn't even look like it's raining. She was easy to communicate with and if I had any questions she answered them. After the wedding, she sent me proofs of the pictures and let me know what was going on the whole way. I will definitely work with her in the future!

We chose Mirage Entertainment Group to provide several services for our son's wedding. We had already signed another photographer, but changed our minds, based on recommendations for Mirage. We met with John Nola, knowing that we would lose money if we switched at that point. From that initial meeting, we were sold. The professionalism we were shown and the quality of their work spoke for themselves. We immediately changed our minds, never looked back, and were never sorry. Mirage provided our ceremony music, the uplighting for the reception, the photography, and the videography. The ceremony music was well done. The different songs were blended flawlessly and the volume and quality were perfect. The uplighting in the room created the best ambiance for our guests. Both the photography and videography captured every special moment of the ceremony and reception, although we hardly noticed that they were there. Finally, we had our pictures back one week after the wedding. From beginning to end, our experience with Mirage Entertainment Group was positive and professional.

Jon compiled hours of home videos into a beautiful half hour long synopsis of my childhood. It was a touching tribute to my family, particularly my dad who spent hours behind the camera capturing all our family moments. Jon had the DVD ready prior to the requested date and charged a very reasonable price. It's clear that he really took his time watching all the videos because he put the clips together in such a thoughtful progression and helped to capture the mood with music and cinematography. If you are looking for someone who is both reliable as well as talented, look no further.

    Mike and Sherry were fantastic! They worked with us throughout the process of planning our wedding and helped us figure out our timelines. The day of the wedding they were great with all of our guests and crazy bridal party. We had all of the images on a USB drive 3 weeks later! Couldn't ask for a better experience.

    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.
