Truth be told, we weren't originally going to have a wedding video... At the time we thought that those funds would be more useful in other parts of the budget. As a wedding and event planner in my professional life that fact came surprise to everyone I talked to. But after we found out that my grandmothers would not be able to make our destination wedding, the video became a necessity... and thank goodness it did! If I had to do it all again I would have booked Mansour immediately. From the initial consultation, to the in depth interview, he works with you on such a personal level. The film is amazing, I basically cried through the entire thing. Even the music matched us perfectly! If you haven't already booked with Mansour... you should now!

Lisa is phenomenal! She arrived promptly as advertised, and kept the guests entertained all evening. Her prices are more than reasonable, and no shortcuts are taken because of it. If you're looking for a top notch entertainer for your wedding/event, then Lisa is your person! You and your guests will be thrilled you hired her :)

Mike had a great sense of humor and made everyone feel at ease, which is notable since we were navigating a personal ceremony in a tight space . He shot exactly what I wanted for the wedding ceremony and reception, worked well with the photographer, and sent me the footage in a timely fashion. It was a pleasure working with him!

Marc Cacho and MC Visuals were very professional. Through out my wedding planning process he worked with me and made adjustments to my contract as necessary. The day of my wedding his crew was very flexible and made sure to capture my special moments with elegance and class. I had a wonderful stress free experience. It was a blessing to be able to find a team that included photographers and a videographer at such a reasonable price.

Jamie was our videographer for our 10/10/15 wedding in Bristol, RI and was very professional and a pleasure to work with from the initial meeting to our quick turnaround receipt of our beautiful video. It was clear from our first meeting that he is an extremely capable, experienced videographer who thoroughly enjoys filming weddings. He guided us through the process in our communications and with a questionnaire and was a pleasure to have around inconspicuously filming the day of our wedding. He worked very well with the other vendors and most importantly provided a very quick turnaround of a video teaser and then cinematic video (with dvds and raw footage quick to follow) that was more beautiful than I could ever imagine. There wasn't a moment of the video we did not love and he captured everything about that day just as I wanted. Everyone who has seen it raves about the beautiful video we now own and how perfectly it captured our wedding - and how it was worth every penny. His pricing is up front and competitive - we didn't have a big budget and were on the fence about a videographer and it was one of the best decisions we made when it came to our wedding. Go with Video By Jamie - you won't be disappointed!

Darryn was amazing to work with, start to finish! Our initial Skype conversation with him was incredibly comfortable. Darryn truly knows what he is doing and is able to present that even through a computer conversation! We felt an immediate connection. His communication leading up to our wedding was tremendous. The day of, Darryn arrived early and was ready to record our ketubah signing which took place before the ceremony. We received our final product within 2 weeks as promised by Darryn in our contract. We just watched our wedding video this past weekend and it far exceeded our expectations! He captured moments that we did not even know he was present for! His quality of work matched exactly what he described to us during our initial meeting. Darryn has a wonderful personality and is a true professional. He is absolutely worth the investment.

Dante's energy, creativity and patience its exactly what we needed. The whole process was easy, from our first conversation to the delivery of the photographs. We opted to have a city hall wedding and wanted to make it special. Dante was able to capture a collection of special moments without us even being aware of it! Once outside of city hall, he thought outside of the box and got us on a Carousel that was in the vicinity! It was an incredible experience and it made our day extra special. Dante made us feel comfortable and made the whole thing fun. We enjoyed every second of it and will consider him for any other big event in our life.

We thought that Jim Nogueria was a great wedding videographer! We found out about Jim's videography services through this website, Thumbtack. We were very satisfied with the overall quality of our wedding movie. We thought that the video captured all of the high points of our wedding, which included the key parts of the ceremony and reception. Although Jim was filming for 8-9 hours, the final edited wedding video was around 1.5 hours and included DVD chapters so we could navigate with ease to a certain part of the wedding movie. I had thought that Jim would have filmed the ceremony in its entirety, but he didn't include some of the standard Sunday mass aspects, like setting of the table, communion, etc. or the entire duration of the receiving line at the end of the ceremony. This was not a problem for us, but you just want to make sure the expectations are set and that you are both on the same page to avoid any disappointments at the end. Prior to hiring Jim as our wedding videographer, we liked how he was very responsive to the emails I sent him with my questions and how thorough he was with explaining the entire process. We actually never met face to face with Jim prior to the wedding, but felt that phone calls and emails were sufficient. We also liked how Jim, at the time of booking him which was almost 1.5 years ago, was one of the very few videographers in our area that was offering filming in 4K, which is the current and highest standard for video resolution. Jim always made sure that I was happy and completely satisfied with his services, including after he provided the finished product. In addition to the wedding video which he provided in the Blu-Ray disc format, at my request, he also provided me with the final wedding video/trailer video files, as well as all of the raw video footage which was not in the final wedding file. He sent me an external hard drive which I then I copied the files to my computer for backup purposes. Overall, we were very happy that we decided to hire a wedding videographer because the wedding video will be something that we will cherish forever.

Working with Shayna was the one of the top decisions of our wedding this past July! She worked with us and our unique visions to create the best video we could have ever expected. We went a little non-traditional and wanted to do a storytelling method with our wedding. This was a new experience for Shayna and us, but it honestly could not have gone smoother! The video had a beautiful balance of our ceremony, time with friends/family, getting ready, and friends/family interviews (the unique part of our video). If you are looking for someone who will give you top level video, professionalism, and sincerity, it is 100% Shayna!

We loved having Nola and her assistant do our wedding videography. We were hesitant about spending extra money on a video but feel so lucky and happy to have done it! Nola was very professional and listened to what we wanted. She gave us a shortened video to share with everyone as well as a long video to have forever. Her pricing was ideal considering we didn't want to overspend and she allowed us to do payments spread out which was super helpful. I highly recommend Nola!!

Ed was wonderful! My husband and I could not be happier with our choice for a videographer. He is dedicated to creating truly unique videos that capture the joy of your event. With Ed, you don't just get a wedding video - you get a full documentary of the event from start to finish. After our first meeting with him, it was clear to us that he has a passion for this. and as a result treats each client and their video with care and gives it his full attention. He went above and beyond capturing footage of our wedding - from the rehearsal, to us girls getting ready, and even an interview with my husband and I after all the events of the day finished. His prices are very competitive and he provides better video coverage than all of the other videographers that I interviewed. Ed is an absolute pleasure to work with and we simply cannot say enough good things about him. Please feel free to contact me with any questions on my experience with Videonamic. I am more than happy to be a reference. Carolyn August 16, 2017

Paul was very nice, did a great job, and was willing to accommodate our wedding video needs on short notice. He got us an edited version of our full ceremony in less than two weeks that family and friends have enjoyed greatly. We have had some trouble getting in touch with him after he sent us the video link, but otherwise have had a wonderful experience working with Paul.

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.
