Julian did an EXCELLENT job with my daughters wedding. He caught precious moments we didn't even see !!!! He was very prompt, and stayed until the very end.... I have already recommended him to someone else, as he is very professional, you both make a contract together, and he offers a payment plan. If you want a videographer at a reasonable price, you better act now.....you can check out the work he did for us on his website...just click on Tia & Anthonys wedding. Cudos to you Julian !!!!! If I ever need this service again, I will definitely use Castorena Videography !!!

Monica and her husband are both very nice persons. They helped me take the video of my wedding and reception, about 4 hours. They took every single detail of my wedding. In order to make sure it would be fine on the wedding day, they came to our church the day before. After the wedding, they helped me cut the film into a highlight, as well as full films for that day, which are more than awesome. They always smile to everybody, and help me a lot. I feel that they are the persons truly loving their work. It's my pleasure to invite them as my videographer.

Ali and his son are amazing and super hard working. When you use sites like this, it's always scary if you'll end up with the right person, but they are amazing videographers and photographers. I'm so enthralled by my beautiful pictures and the amazing extra work he did on them. Made my special day memorable and 100% more special. I highly recommend them.

Alex was very professional in his approach to my project. I am a very busy resident on a budget. He was very understanding when it came to the specific details of my wedding and my circumstances. I am Nigerian so the experience was quite different! I had a 2 day event, the first being the Nigerian ceremony, the 2nd being the more traditional "white dress wedding" followed by reception. He and his colleagues took everything in stride! They went above and beyond to capture the most important parts of my wedding. Communication was top notch! I have a preview of photos that were taken during the ceremonies and they are outstanding. I know the final product will be just as gorgeous! I thank God for Alex and his companions, and will highly recommend him if you are looking for a professional, hard-working, videographer, that goes above and beyond to do a great job. He takes a lot of pride in his work, and it shows!

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!!

We contacted ALCOVE: Niche Video Marketing for a last minute product demo shoot. Not only was the videographer accommodating with our tight deadline, it was a pleasure to work with him. Our video project was complete within 48 hours.

Davis Creative couldn't have done a better job handling a big job on such a short notice. My company needed a quality video to send us into our biggest year of marketing and growth yet, and Davis Creative was able to take my vision and make it a reality with precision, ingenuity, and timeliness. They quickly turned out the video in the short deadline we needed, and they extended so much courtesy during the whole process. I'd recommend Davis Creative to anyone needing quality video work, and I hope to use them again for Common Desk promotions in the future.

Slaton helped us out on short notice. We had a Managing Director retire and had several events planned to follow the emotion and commaraderie that this Managing Director had with his employees. Slaton was able to capture the employees heartfelt emotions. This was one of our best retirement ceremonies to date. I highly recommend Slaton!

Adam of Lightscapes was exceptional. Him and his team were so professional. From the pre-shooting phone call and planning, to the day he sent me the final cut. He has such a calm nature, it put me at ease all day. He also has an incredible eye for detail. You know your bases are covered when you work with him. I have also never met a more passionate and dedicated videographer. I would HIGHLY recommend hiring him. You will not regret your decision.

Let me help save it for you, forever, on broadcast-quality video.

About

Hey! I'm Emily, a wedding and portrait photographer based in McKinney Texas. (Though I'm always game for a road trip.) There is nothing I love more than people and capturing their authentic moments. I have been shooting images for what feels like my whole life, but i didn't start to get more serious about photography until about 4 years ago. All throughout school I was job shadowing, assisting, and, eventually, shooting weddings and other important events. Currently I freelance in Dallas and surrounding areas. I shoot with top-of-the-line equipment and premium backup software. My prices are competitive and few can match my quick turnaround time!

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.
