Tyrone Turner is the real deal. He knew what I needed before I did. Literally. I wanted to make a music video that looked as professional as possible but on a working man's budget. He was fully prepared with all the right equipment. A lot of people pick up cameras and think they're professional photographers. That's not the case here. I have no complaints whatsoever. I will absolutely recommend this guy to anyone needing a photographer for any reason. Trust me. This guy is the real freakin deal.

I hired Amir to take pictures at my daughter's first birthday and couldn't be happier. There is nothing I like more than getting my money's worth - his rate was among the lowest offers with the highest most rated reviews. It seemed like a no brainer to hire him and I was right. Amir is a professional photographer who knows exactly what to do. He showed up early and was already shooting away before I even got there. He was super easy to work with, great with children, and very attentive to your needs. I will be hiring him again for every event or photography needs! Thanks Amir!

I am a wedding planner, so you can probably imagine when I started to plan my own wedding, how much time I spent looking for a photographer and how incredibly picky I was. I like to think that I was in a lucky position compared to most brides because I have the experience to know what to look for and what questions to ask. I can't even begin to tell you how on top of things Jessica was. I could speak for hours on how talented she is and how insanely beautiful her work is, but that speaks for itself the second you look at her site. You don't need me to tell you. What impressed me most is her professionalism and how far out of her way she goes to "get the shot." Once you've experienced her how hard she works, and how much thought she puts in weeks and months before the wedding, it becomes really obvious why all her work is so beautiful and looks so effortless. In our initial meeting, she walked us through exactly what her process is on a wedding day. How she shoots, what she looks for, how she tries to envision your album while she's taking detail shots to make sure they have a consistent flow and color scheme, and that the lighting and mood tell a story. How she researches your color palette and pinterest boards before the wedding so she knows exactly what type of flowers and decor to expect to work into the images. She explained timelines and when the best time to shoot our first look and portraits was. She was so informed and helpful in ways that went beyond just the photography. We knew instantaneously she was IT for us. Before the wedding she sent us a very detailed questionnaire to fill out that asked about our decor inspiration, our timeline, who we wanted included in our formal photos, and basically anything you could possibly think of about the wedding. A few days before she called me and discussed all of it with me and mentioned she was going to do a walk-through of my venue to make sure she knew exactly what to expect. She also sent me a very detailed list of all the types of "detail" shots she takes and how we could pre-organize these items so they would be available for her to photograph as soon as she arrived. She reached out to my florist to ask for a few extra pieces of our florals and ribbons to incorporate into shoe shots, invitation shots, etc. As a planner, in my professional life I do a lot of styled shoots with photographers (photoshoots we do with other vendors for ourselves, not clients, to expand our portfolios)... and I realized that she treats every wedding like a styled shoot, with the same care and attention to detail. She even showed up with her own extra props to use that matched the colors of our wedding - serving trays, little cute ring dishes, jewelry boxes, golden hangers, ribbons, tiny decorative scissors!! She kept joking that she is a very "OCD perfectionist" but what it really is, is passion and a committed attention to detail and making sure every wedding looks beautiful - elevating even the weddings that maybe did not have as much budget for decor and all those extra little Pinterest details we all love so much. I have worked with a lot of photographers through my work, and I have NEVER worked with one that put so much forethought into preparing for a wedding as she does. Most show up and shoot what is there. My wedding was beautiful, and I put a lot of hard work into it, but it would not have been nearly as beautiful in photographs as she made it, without all the little extra touches she thought of that no one else does. As a fellow vendor, these are the things that impressed me most about her and I feel important to share with other brides. I also know that most of the photographers I have worked with in the past will give the couple's 300-500 pictures. Jessica gave me over 1,300 edited images. Every one of them beautiful. I have seen many talented photographers (though I'm biased that she is the MOST talented) but none that work as hard or deliver as far beyond expectation as her. After my wedding, my old referral list basically went out the door. I do not recommend anyone but Jessica to my clients now. Of the dozens of photographers I have worked with, she is above and beyond the very best. If you hire her, you're making the very best vendor decision you will make for your entire wedding. If you don't hire her, what a loss for you! Your cake and food will be over that night. Your photos and memories will last forever. If I could give one piece of advice as a planner, save on the things that don't last, splurge on the things that do. Good luck, brides!

It is with great honor and privilage to have met Mr Nuzum, stunned by his punctuality and awed by his sense of responsibility and professionalism in producing a video entitled "Ambush cures HIV/AIDS". His humility and careing personality goes above and beyond the call of duty and I would personally recomend him for all your photographic or video needs.

Mr. Ross Stewart is an outstanding photographer. Our Association holds an international conference each year with about 400 attendees in different cities across the U.S. The conference is four days with a variety of events - keynote speakers, formal presentations, banquet and luncheon presentations, awards, breaks, etc. We always ask photographers to capture the dynamic qualities of these events, to show in a still photo the action, engagement and excitement of being there. No one has ever done this as well as Mr. Stewart. He is also the most conscientious, careful, punctual and easy photographer we have worked with for many years. I highly recommend Ross Stewart Photography without any hesitation. He is simply the best. Stuart D. Yoak, Ph.D. Executive Director Association for Practical and Professional Ethics

Eileen has been great!!! We had hired her for my daughter's graduation on a party boat and she worked with all the people, got them involved and took some wonderful pictures that we will cherish for long time. She somehow got the best from all my family members and they were all taken in a very natural form. She even put the pictures in a video form with music which made it entertaining. Good luck and keep up the good work. KC

When I started to look at videographers & photographers 4500Films was the first website I went to. I knew from watching one video that 4500Films was it! I had to have Mel & Cyndee photograph & take video of our wedding! From the very beginning Mel & Cyndee were amazing! My bridal pictures were an absolute blast with the two of them acting silly & everyone feeling like one big family!! I couldn't have asked for a better team. Our wedding pictures are absolutely stunning. The video is breathtakingly perfect! My husband & I couldn't be happier! We can't thank 4500Films enough for capturing ALL of the perfect moments from our big day!!

I contacted Steve at Vader to document a commercial rental I had. It was the first time I used Steve. He provided me with photos and a video. The most impressive thing to me was the Aerial photos showing access to roads and highways. My clients rental property was rented quickly and with little fuss.

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.
