Nazim couldn't have been better about communication throughout the process. He arrived right on time for my event, and it was evident that he wanted to get the video/photos perfect for us. He also got the video back to us very quickly (within a couple of weeks of the event). The video quality was good; the sound quality of the video wasn't as good as we hoped, but that is because of a rough video angle/set-up and outdoor conditions. Overall, I would highly recommend Nazim's services.

Great experience working with Dave! He was helpful, informative, fast to jump on the project and finished quickly. He transferred 27 home movie tapes from 8mm video cassettes to mpg files on a hard drive. Everything was well-organized and returned in the same shape I left with him. Would highly recommend Dave's services!

We are currently working with them on our first project - video advertisements for both TV and Digital/Online, using motion graphics (as opposed to shot video) in these first spots. We really enjoy working with them and have a number of additional video projects in line for them, including shooting some of our live events. This is a young crew compared to some of the others we interviewed, but they are super professional, talented, and they were willing to partner with us to deliver video services to our licensees across the U.S.. We look forward to working with them on an on-going basis.

Eileen is super gifted professional caring and compassionate photographer who will wholeheartedly go the extra mile to exceed all expectations in her work. Eileen and her hubby Howard did a splendid work photographing and video taping our wedding of December 19TH, 2015. If there was a six star rating then that is what Eileen deserves. Do yourself a favor if you are planning a wedding or any special function and contact first Eileen-there will be no looking back afterwards as would be anticipated. Thanks Eileen and Howard for all the hard work in making our wedding most memorable, which can best be described as a "labor of love". Walid & Leila Daniel

Julian filmed my wedding this summer, and he was such a pleasure to work with! He is super kind, professional, and punctual. There was always an open line of communication with him and he was accommodating to my wishes, as well as inputting his professional advice. And oh my gosh, the videos. There is the full length video of the ceremony and reception that is excellent, and also the highlight video. The editing, camera angles, music, effects were all impressive! The highlight video is absolutely perfect to share and look back on easily. I shared a link with all my family, and every time we watch the "waterworks" come just as if we were back in the day of. He captured everything so well, and I'd definitely recommend him to others for weddings. Absolutely a great investment and at a relatively low cost!!

I would like to give Tim a standing ovation for doing such an amazing job on our wedding video. He captured moments that I didn't even think to add to my shot list. He was very professional and listened to what my husband and I wanted. We opted to have him for 6 hours, so that he could film the pre-ceremony preparations. The end result was so beautiful and sentimental. He even offered to give us a highlight video to post to our social network page, how awesome is that! If I had to do it all over again, I would definitely choose Highlight Weds.

I just wanted to take a moment to say thank you for setting me up with Hubert Pralitz and James Michael Williams to play at our wedding back in June in McKinney. They did a fantastic job! For many years I dreamed of having live classical music playing at my ceremony and that was a detail I did not want to pass up on. It was something I had to have and these two delivered and made my dream come alive in more ways than one. You have no idea. They have no idea. All of my guests have commented on how beautifully they both played. The icing on the moment was when they played while my friend sang The Prayer. I cannot convey how much that song means to me and it was a detail that I had to make happen. And boy did it happen! It was truly beautiful! As I watch the video it amazes me that they never rehearsed together yet they all meshed so beautifully as if they had done this many times before. That is a sign of truly talented musicians. My only regret is that I did not get to personally meet Hubert and James after our ceremony therefore I did not get to personally thank them from the bottom of my heart for sharing their talent with us. As you can imagine, after the ceremony things moved very quickly and we were whisked here and whisked there. Before I knew it, they had left and I did not get a chance to speak with them both. If you could do me a huge favor, please let them know how wonderful they were, how much this all meant to me and that I thank you them very much. Feel free to share this email as well. By the way, my friend Desiree had nothing but wonderful things to say about Hubert and James and she was delighted to work with them.

With Movement Creative Agency I was able to experience my vision come to life. We did a small video shoot of me doing what I love best, teaching hip-hop. The quality of the work was amazing. Ilijah is a great asset to the team. He understands how important the quality and passion of his work are. Whether it is recording an event, taking photographs, or recording in the studio, quality customer experience will be fulfilled. I say, invest in this agency. You will not be let down!

We are so grateful to Steve and highly recommend him as an exceptional photographer! Debbie and Philip Molina

Maurice was incredible to work with, and the quality of the videos exceeded expectations. He was able to produce a full live music video, as well as a promo video featuring multiple songs. Cost was very affordable, he was very professional, and will definitely use again for future videos. I highly recommend him to anyone seeking a high quality video.

Words cannot express how impressed we were with Galligan Media for our school graduation ceremony. David is professional, considerate, and thorough. Communication for scheduling was a piece of cake! We were able to tell David our vision and he blew it out of the water. On our event day, he arrived early and even helped us with both set up and break down of the event itself. Talk about going above and beyond! The product (video of the ceremony in it's entirety) was more than we expected and our families were thrilled. Highly, highly recommended! We won't even consider using anyone else again.

I asked Steve to take photos for a new residential listing I just got. I don't want aerial I did not think it was appropriate. He took Aerial photos and video anyway and the home sold above listed price (do to multiple offers). The new owners said their were attracted to the listing because of the aerial photos, which showed the surroundings) and the video. I'll ask Vader Aerial Images to document all my new listings going forward.

Overall an excellent experience with Eyecon Video Productions to capture a two day training workshop. The video crew showed up on time both days. The video was with a live audience and there were very little in the way of interruptions to the actual program which made this a seamless venture. The editing of the slides with the video did take a lot longer than expected, but the result was a good quality product as we had originally agreed upon. I would definitely hire them again for a similar program.

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.
