I was extremly satisfied with job John did on my desktop computer! I was so worried thinking my pc had crashed seeing this Blue Screen Error! John went above and beyond explaining in detail all that he was going to do, and gave me so many helpful tips to get the most out of my pc.Very personable and made me feel comfortable to ask any questions. I would recommend to all! I think it is awesome that he takes the time to explain and let you know what all you can do yourself to keep your equipment running in the best possible manner. Thank you Soooo Much John! Sincerly, Linda V Listed is the work he did for me, to fix the problem I had with my destktop pc. 1. Researched the Microsoft BSOD (Blue Screen of Death) error. 2. Disconnected hard drive from system and used a USB connection to copy ALL personal files to another storage device. 3. Checked all of the BiOS settings on the PC to ensure that nothing was turned off and all boot devices were properly identified. 4 Re-started PC and attempted to run Windows 10 in 'Safe Mode with Networking' and it worked. Connected to the internet and confirmed that all updates and drivers were current. One or more drivers were updated during this event. 5. After installing updates, Windows started normally and he was able to check ALL device settings and updated all software. PC rebooted and performed normally. 6. Created 10 backup DVD's and copied all the personal files to them for safe-keeping in case Windows crashed again. 7. Installed more memory into pc which increased the memory from 4Gb to 12Gb, thereby improving the performance of the pc. 8. Created a number of print-outs for me to review in order to purchase hardware upgrades and a recommendation as to what laptop to buy for my son.

Caleb was great to work with. He arrived early for our production and did some scouting on his own. He was great with giving direction to our talent and collaborating with me as the producer. On the post side, he was prompt with his work, hit all his deadlines, and took direction very well. He's delivered exactly what we asked for and I'd definitely work with him again and recommend him as a videographer or editor.

Thomas Balcom is one of the best young videographers/editors/animators that I know today! I, first, hired Thomas out of Baylor University to work on my television program in Chicago. He was raw but infinitely talented. He outperformed my expectations by 300%! There wasn't a project that he couldn't handle, a video that he couldn't shoot, or a job that he couldn't complete on time! After moving back to Texas, I hired Thomas' for his first contract job. And once again, he proved to be an amazing choice. He has worked for me for 4 years and with every project, he continues to improve and to outshine every other video guy that I know. He has the "eye" for videography, the "timing" for editing, and the "imagination" for motion gfx/animation! He is my #1 choice for video no matter the project. I highly recommend Thomas for any and ALL related video projects. He really is one-of-a-kind and an incredibly talented individual.

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.
