HIRE THIS GUY! Working with Brantley for our wedding video was a very big deal to us. When we looked for somebody we didn’t want just “anybody” to come record our wedding with a nice camera and decent video editing software. These days, it’s hard to find people who do it because of a creative curiosity and true passion. Only few people can do what Brantley does. We were lucky enough to get to work with someone who has a true passion for photography and videography. He can articulate and shape moments into timeless, beautiful reminders of the real thing. He aspires to do so much more than just document, he actually brings things to life and molds them into the most beautiful representations of the moments that truly transpired. His work is phenomenal and artistically sound. He doesn’t miss a thing and he has a true knack for the things other people miss. I appreciate the time and effort he put into filming our wedding and the finished product is absolutely astonishing. To see our wedding video go here: https://youtu.be/PZ_Nehp_frA

Victor and his team were absolutely amazing. He was easy to get a hold of and answered all of my questions in a timely manner. Very polite and genuine, he was honest and sincere from our very first messages. He made a package that fit our needs perfectly, which was fantastic on such a short notice (approx. 2 months). On the day of our wedding he arrived early and put me at ease. He was having a great time, which was contagious and put the entire wedding party in a better mood. He went out of his way to accommodate any shot requests I had. The pictures we have received so far have been absolutely stunning, and choosing to go with Victor was one of the best choices we could have made.

Neil went way above and beyond all expectations to put our wedding film together. We came from Chicago and had a destination wedding in Bee Spring, KY. Not knowing us, he was willing to come and stay on our property with everyone and film our wedding weekend. His work alone speaks for itself. He hustled around to get the most amazing footage and edited so beautifully! However, not only is his work freaking awesome, but he himself was an absolute pleasure to work with. He was part of the family by the end of the weekend and everyone loved his presence. And, for every bride out there, that is soooo important for a smooth, enjoyable wedding day! Seriously think about working with him if you want the perfect wedding videography experience! Thanks again for everything, Neil!

    Jesse was amazing. Probably my favorite vendor from my wedding. He was timely and efficient. I barely knew he was there and delivered the videos less than 2 weeks after the wedding. Amazing amazing work. Thank you so much for capturing our day!

    Ellen and Alex were an excellent couple to work with! Their presence at our wedding was positive and professional. The video results were more than we hoped for and a sweet memory. The music, which was written special for our video, was perfect. I recommend their services!

    We are two friends, who decided the film industry wasn't for us, rather we wanted to use our talents to bring joy to brides and grooms by providing them with a lasting memory of their wedding day through a cinematic wedding film.

      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.
