Pablo is the best photographer in the U.S.! He photographed my daughter who is an All-Star cheerleader. She had numerous photo sessions with professional photographers. Pablo is incredibly talented and professional. He captured still as well as action shots like none before! He is extremely unique and creative. His photos are breathtaking! You will be amazed what he can do! You will choose Pablo for any future shoots. We are very fortunate to work with him.

Andrea Reesing is an AMAZING photographer with the ability to make anyone and anything look amazing. When shooting with her, I felt completely comfortable and she brought out the best in me!! I got my photos within 24 hours, which I can't say that most photographers do. She has a love for photography that most creative people don't. I will definitely be booking her again!!!!

Anna Munoz is an extraordinary photographer! She immediately puts you at ease and works to provide you with the sort of shots you are looking to get. Her superior skills and talents at lighting and shooting are matched by speed in getting you the proofs and final files. It couldn't have been easier or more fun. I recommend her highly!!!

Mindi was everything you would want your professional photographer to be. Her communication was timely (even when I was busy and mine wasn't), she was friendly as well as professional and thus made sure that our experience was a comfortable and relaxing one, and we just loved style of photography which was taking natural looking shots in nature. She was also flexible when we suggested spots we thought would be good for our shoots as we walked along the trail. Thanks Mindi!

Mary was great to work with. 1) She always responded to emails and phone calls quickly. 2) She was flexible with our schedule for the bridal portraits (my daughter lives out of town) and got them back quickly so we could have a print to display at the wedding. She had no problem with the wedding being at our church and the reception at another location. 3) I LOVE her pictures. One thing that impressed me on her web-page was the indoor shots - many photographers have lots of outdoor shots but few indoor ones. The wedding and reception were both inside (it was July!) and she did a great job. She was very discreet and managed to capture the beauty, sacredness, and joy of the day. Somehow she managed to convince my daughter and her husband to step outside for some quick (and wonderful) shots and then continued the magic indoors. 4) Compared to many other photographers, she has very reasonable rates. 5) She truly loves her job and her joy bubbles out to everyone around - it was more like she was an old friend rather than "just" a photographer. I will definitely contact Mary for other occasions!

Both talented and professional are a combination not easily found in a sea of photographers, but Mesh is a rare breed! He has an incredible eye and creates a comfortable environment for all your creative aspirations to come alive, his editing skills supersed your expectations every time and his turn around is prompt. I highly recommend booking a shoot asap no matter if it's portfolio, wedding or album art for musicians he can cover it all and you'll have a blast working with him!

I did not actually have my photos taken by Errich (because a photographer friend was able to do it for less money), but he was very kind and gracious when I canceled and was willing to reduce his price quite a bit as well. I will definitely keep him in mind for next time if my friend is unavailable.

Stephen is a great photographer! My fiance and I did our engagement pictures with him and we are so happy with the result. He captured the best moments in perfect angles. Besides that, he was really flexible about our appointment. You know the weather is unpredictable in Texas and we had some freeze alerts. Because of that, we had to reschedule our appointment several times, and he was always really flexible. I highly recommend you to do engagment pictures with him!

Ryan did an amazing job photographing our event! 150 people, a very large awards program, dancing, great food and decor... She captured it all so beautifully! My best friend and my husband are both photographers and are my usual go-to's for the many charitable and social functions I put on but they were off duty that night. I was nervous that we wouldn't get the same quality and caring from a hired gun (so to speak). But myself and our group members were all so pleasantly surprised that Ryan got some amazing shots and in the challenging environment of a relatively low light hotel ballroom. Excellent job and highly recommended!

Marc is a talented and experienced professional videographer and photographer. I needed help getting video turned into finished deliverables and he stepped up and hit it out of the park. It's great to deal with young folks who are truly gifted and able to communicate and help with any needs in the video or photograph arena.

Undoubtedly, this photographer is amazing. It's as if she read my mind on what I was looking for in the way of setting, action shots, expressions and blending the right mix of personalities into one fantastic family photo! Even with the littlest one and the teenager, the expressions are priceless. If I ever need to expand my family photo wall, I will know who to contact!!

Tim and Peter were AHHHHMAAAAZING! I needed to find a Videographer and fast. Tim was quick to respond to my SOS for our event and was super helpful, not to mention patient with the multiple changes in decisions. Peter did an incredible job in listening to what our needs were and capturing the moments we wanted. He was always one step ahead. I couldn't have asked for a group of people to capture our event. I would highly recommend hiring these guys for any event you do.Great job El Tiburon Productions! Keep up the awesome work!

I was stressed to the max trying to find a photographer for my wedding two months before the actual date and I went on Thumbtack as a last resort trying to find someone who would be willing to shoot my wedding within a reasonable price and as such late notice. Thankfully Kevin sent me a quote on here and he was really a dream to work with. He shot my engagement photos as well and he was very professional, caring, intuitive, and always making sure that the entire session was very relaxed and fun which made working with him a breeze. I would recommend him 10 times over as well as I had a special request to have him not use flash because of my epileptic sister and he was more than willing to make accommodations in the photo still came out just as wonderful so if you’re thinking about using him please do not hesitate!

If I could give beyond 5 stars, I certainly would! I hired them for two events over this past labor day weekend, 2018. The first was my nephew's surprise proposal. To say the pictures were awesome, amazing, detailed, picturesque, etc, just is not enough. Perfection! They arrived to the designated site in advance to scout out the area for best pictures and with recommendations. The surprised moment was so well captured and will remain in the family archives. The engagement photo shoot was excellent. The second was for my mother's 82nd birthday party, where her siblings and other family members attended. I may never be above to get these siblings together at one setting again so having these pictures done well was important. Another excellent job! Being new to Austin, I did not know a photographer and decided to use Thumbtack, as I often did when in Illinois. After perusing all of those who responded, looking at the web sites and speaking to Fine Art Memories, I believed this was the best one. I WAS SO RIGHT! If you hire Fine Art Memories, you've hit JACK POT!

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.
