The DJ was fantastic. Everyone thought it was one of the best wedding parties they had ever been to. He showed up early and obscurely set everything up. Kept the music going and got everyone up and dancing. Had a great variety so appealed to both the younger and older people at the wedding. A great time.

Jacob was absolutely fantastic to work with on my wedding! He was always very professional and extremely organized. He also really took into account the types of music my (now) husband and I like and was able to make the evening very cohesive. We were very impressed by his ability to help coordinate all the activities in the wedding (toasts, first dance, father-daughter dance, cake cutting, etc) and how much he helped us think through the reception prior to our wedding. Jacob was a fantastic MC and truly made our wedding reception unforgettable! I would recommend him 100% for your wedding or event!

We first met Bob when he photographed our wedding, 16 1/2 years ago! He did a fantastic job then - especially great at candid photos, and made everyone feel comfortable and at ease. We have many beautiful, artistic shots from that day. We had an outdoor ceremony, and indoor reception, and he was comfortable with both settings…even shots on the beach. When looking for someone to take some photos at our older son's Bar Mitzvah, I thought immediately of Bob and tracked him down! He took photos of that day for us, too. Always very professional, great at what he does, and especially great at getting in the "action" and getting that shot. We highly recommend him!

We chose Greg from a number of professionals that we had interviewed to be the photographer at our Wedding in Connecticut. What really impressed us on the initial phone call was his energy and passion which seemed so evident even through the phone. What happens if it rains, we asked? He stated he would get a plastic bag, wrap it around his camera, and keep shooting! This was a twelve hour event and that fact did not phase him at all. Greg was on time, and we had actually asked him to come earlier then we originally planned, and he had no problem with that. Not only were the quality of the pictures beyond what we had hoped for, we were also very impressed with his level of energy and the multitude of angles and creativity he showed. He was very easy to get along with, would take whatever shots we wanted, but also had plenty of ideas of his own. During sunset, he asked us to come down to the treeline so he could get a shot of the sun over our shoulder. It was a beautiful shot and not one we had specifically asked for, which showed us that he really cared about what he was doing. Many of our guests commented during the wedding on how great our photographer was and once we started sharing the pictures everyone was even more impressed! We would highly recommend him to anyone and would definitely use him again if we had an occasion to. Jess and Patrick

Dude's legit. I got a lot of responses on here from amateur and wedding photographers bidding to do my head shots, but not knowing how to take a good head shot. Mansour not only knows how to take a good head shot, he was able to capture my personality in a photo! Super great to work with and flexible with my crazy schedule.

I'm an actress and have worked with many different photographers & cinematographers for almost 10 years. Jeremiah was kind enough to take some head shots for my acting resume. He was very receptive to my ideas and was willing to stand/sit in awkward positions to get the shot he wanted. He has a wonderful eye for capturing the personality of whom he is photographing. Jeremiah made me laugh during the photo shoot and was very timely in providing the edited pictures back to me. Jeremiah really is looking for his client's best interests and that's what makes him run a smooth photography business.

Steve and Chris were fantastic to work with. Steve checked in frequently over the few months leading to our wedding, listened to what we wanted to focus on for our photos and was able to showcase our personalities and the beauty of our venue in our photos. It was great to have both Chris and Steve as they captured different perspectives of our wedding day. Both Steve and Chris were personable, made us feel special, and easily adapted when we had some unforeseen issues with the mobility of family members and brief weather issues - rain and extreme heat! Steve edited and sent out photos much quicker than I anticipated - about 2.5 weeks. Here I was thinking I'd have to wait months! It was a pleasent surprise. Both my husband and I would highly recommend Steve and Chris for your wedding photography. Thank you Steve and Chris for everything and for capturing our magical day.

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.

Robert was fantastic for our special day! He checked in with us a few times before the wedding to make sure all our details were exactly what we wanted for our wedding. On our wedding night, he also continued to check in to see how the night was going. My guests absolutely loved the music he played, and I did not leave the dance floor the whole night!! Couldn’t ask for a better DJ!

We had Gary and Kristen photograph our parent's 50th wedding anniversary. One thing that I appreciated very much was that throughout the party they were able to capture important moments without us having to tell them which included many wonderful candid moments. Their attention to detail was outstanding as well.

Keith and team did SUCH an excellent job running the photo booth for our wedding. They had so many fun props and the photo booth looked very nice set up with a red style carpet and backdrop. The photo booth was such a hit and we had tons of guests lining up for second and third turns. In between visitors, Keith's team reorganized the props so that the prop table remained neat. They kept the line moving. I was most impressed by their professionalism and how the booth added such a fun, unique, yet sophisticated flare to our elegant wedding. Keith's team also worked with us before the wedding to select the template and font we wanted for the photos so they would reflect the style of our wedding. The pricing was very reasonable and I would recommend them to everyone!

Choosing Alan to be our wedding photographer was the best decision we made. My bride and I talked with Alan before the wedding about how we wanted all of our pictures to look as though we didn't even know our pictures were being taken. That's exactly what Alan did. From the pictures of getting ready at the hotel to the details at our wedding venue to the countless shots of our party Alan did a magnificent job with everything. Not to mention that he managed to edit and show us our pictures 72 hours after our wedding! I would recommend Alan to anyone that is looking for an excellent photographer.

Rev. Carl was FABULOUS! The wedding was a bit delayed due to "maid-of-honor forgetfulness" and the Reverend kept this bride occupied, calm and smiling through the whole wait. The service was exactly what I asked for short, sweet and yet still VERY personal. I would absolutely recommend Ocean State Event Services and Rev. Carl for your wedding!

Robert and Cheryl were a great team to work with. Their work was excellent, and they surprised us with some great candid photos. On my request to have group photos for our wedding reception, Robert followed us with every group, while Cheryl took pictures from a distance. The product was a combination of group and candid pictures, capturing our event very nicely. They were punctual, no hassle and easy to communicate with. They delivered on time and accommodated all our requests. Would recommend highly, and would definitely use them again.

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.  

How much does it cost for a photographer for a wedding?

Finding the right wedding photographer can make a big difference for your ceremony. Nationally, the average wedding photographer’s price ranges from $800 to $1,000, but costs can be much higher in areas like Chicago, New York or Los Angeles where some couples spend $2,000 to $5,000 or more for the photographer they want. Factors that can affect your wedding photographer prices include the photographer’s reputation and experience. Heavy hitters can command top rates, especially during wedding-season weekends. Day of the week also affects your cost. You may get a $200 discount on wedding photographer prices if you get married on a Friday in November rather than a Saturday in June. Time onsite is also an important cost factor. Hiring a photographer to snap photos from the moment you wake up until after last call at the reception is going to cost more than five hours of pictures during the day. Multiple photographers, special lighting, and videography will also increase your costs. Ultimately you want to find someone who has a style you love and can provide the number of edited shots you want for a price you can handle. Learn more about hiring a wedding photographer.
