If you ever need a videographer/photographer for your event, this is the man to call. Jacob is very dependable and he know his stuff. He knows how to properly set lighting for all situations, which seems to be a problem with some videographers. You will definitely be pleased with the finished product and if you are not Jacob will work with you until its right. I high recommend him because he is the one I always call for my jobs and I don't worry because I know I will be satisfied. You Rock Jacob!!

Josh was absolutely wonderful,can't say enough good things about him. He was very prompt in the set up of a last minute addition of videography. He was very polite to everyone around. I loved how he was always around capturing every moment and took requests when i asked for specfic things. He always knocked when coming back into the ladies room and was very respectful of privacy when we needed it. He arrived before we did and stayed until the very end. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a wedding videographer.

Ian was a videographer for the Sofar Sounds Harrisonburg mini concert series that I directed. Ian and his team did an excellent job not only fullfilling their expected role, but going above and beyond expectations. Our team had little knowledge of video production and Ian was able to execute our vision by producing multiple videos that captured the intimate live music experience we wanted to portray. Ian was communicative, creative, and overall an excellent addition to our team.

After searching through many photographers and videographers in our area we found Nick and his company. We we're looking for a photographer and videographer for a wedding and we employed Nick and his company for both and was overly satisfied with everything? Nick is an amazing person and a very professional photographer and the books that worked with him were very professional as well! If we have any other photo or video needs Nick will definitely be the one that we contact! Highly recommended!

Jordan was absolutely a pleasure to work with and knocked it out of the park. There were a few more moving parts to this film than most 2-3 minute corporate videos and he handled them all very well. He was not only able to stage, shoot, and edit interviews, drone shots, and panning shots, he was also able to compile shots from another videographer we worked with, as well as a motion media graphic designer for our video. We are really happy with the end result, and look forward to working with him again. We could have easily spent 3x the price for a similar level of quality.

About

If you are truly looking for wedding photos, portraits, music, or video, contact me through my website. Contact me for your photography, music, and video needs. My name is Jason Messing, but I'm known as Juicebeats; this nickname inspired my company name, Juicebeats Photography. Originally a music producer and video editor with a degree in entertainment media production, my creativity evolved to include photography in 2013. I work and lived in Knoxville, TN with my beautiful wife and one year old son. Whether capturing a bride and groom's special day, catching sweet moments between a couple in a park, or photographing a group of models in an urban setting, my job is to capture those natural and candid moments that truly make a photo memorable. With a portfolio featuring weddings, a variety of portraits, and fashion shoots, my approach is influenced by film, and I would characterize my style as simplistic and imaginative. As a photographer, I value learning more about my craft every day (through researching new techniques and networking with other photographers) and perfecting my art to produce photos that are not only beautiful but also full of emotion. I love taking something that seems ordinary and photographing it in a way that would make it appear exceptional. Photography should be timeless and classic, and it is my goal to create images that will last a lifetime.

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.
