Phenomenal experience at my wedding. My wife and I had the most memorable service ever and there isnt a bettee DJ. Both weddibg photography and djing were done as a favor since our photographer didnt work out literally saving our wedding day... Best DJ det up ever, lights, televisions with live photo streaming and video of event, mixing music, and more. Extremely knowledgeable on all genres of music even Christian. Crazy mixing and djing entirely reinventing songs,very thorough, does EXACTLY what you ask, plays exactly what you ask, very experienced, great new/clean/functioning equipment. So much to say....... An actual DJ, not just some person with a speaker and playing songs from their computer.

I stage managed a rehearsal that doubled as a publicity photo shoot in the summer of 2016. It should have been a logistical nightmare, but it wasn't because Errich was quick, professional, and ready to shoot. He set up the shots and took pictures with the actors not working on scenes, in a way that still allowed us to keep rehearsing. Before I knew it, he had acquired all of the pictures the director and the producers requested, and they were gorgeous! We also had a very productive rehearsal that night. Errich has a high level of professionalism, and I have seen many photos of the other publicity shoots he has done and they are amazing. I recommend him without hesitation, because not only will you get beautiful pictures, but you will also get a photographer that cares about his work, and conducts himself with the highest level of professionalism.

All I can say is Norris is amazing. I am very hard to please but he met all of my demands on the 1st try. I got in all inclusive package from him for my sons 1st birthday. He truly went above and beyond. He showed up early to set up and the viedo was beyond amazing he literally captured every moment and guest on the video. I was spechless at the end result. I will be booking him again in February and will be referring to my clients.

Highly recommended!! Professional, friendly, and efficient. Our film festival has hired Brian for the last 3 years to handle all of our editing needs – assembling all of the screenings we present (over 4 days), creating bumpers and promo videos – he has been excellent. He is super knowledgeable about ALL things video production/editing and works quickly, with everything on time. As a film festival, we can't risk any technical mishaps...AND I am happy to say we have not had a single issue!

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!

Martin Wennerstrom with Video 1 Unit in Austin, Tx provided me with a phenomenal, first class video experience for my talk in San Antonio. He showed up when promised and made sure everything went off without a hitch. We had a two camera set up. I had my video two days later to review and send back to him for edits. I love what I have seen so far. I highly recommend Martin and Video 1 Unit and have already referred him to a potential new client.

I hired Ricardo to shoot video for me for a client project that involved 2 days and 7 locations. He was a total pro the entire time and did a great job pulling it all together. He captured excellent footage and was a pleasure to work with. My client is very pleased with the results and I would not hesitate to hire Ricardo again.

Stephan is the man when it comes to audio, video set ups, as well as knowing what works best for different spaces. His music is phenomenal and out if this world, so much so, that he can get a party really started or if you need something soothing(like for a newborn), he has that too.

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.  

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. 

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
