Working with Lee was a breeze. He arrived at our event on time and photographed everything from start to finish. It was an all-day event, 9am - 9pm - so that in itself is pretty impressive. My team and I were very pleased with his work ethic and creativity. We noticed him setting up a GoPro at the entrance to capture guests as they arrived, which made for a cool time-lapse spot in the video he created. He also had his assistant working the drone to capture footage of the event, while he went to get every shot we requested. He was very thorough, easy to work with, and of course, friendly. I definitely recommend hiring him - in fact, we already did!

Corporate Event Mr. Chen took charge of our corporate event photography on June 14 for 4 hours. We are impressed with his quality of work and professionalism. The photos are awesome, much much better than a photography with our previous event. He showed up ahead of time, and covered the whole event from start to finish. We definitely will use him again for our next event in Sep.

Tiffany was excellent when contacted at the last minute to do my daughter's graduation photos. She provided me with a list of outdoor places to shoot at. We were late, but she was just as patient and still took her time with my daughter. She will be my photographer at any and every event I have going forward. I can't wait to get the photos back. She showed me a few of them on her camera and they were absolutely beautiful!! You saved the day, Tiffany! Thanks you soooooo much!

We hired Tim and his team for two different projects. The first project we had scripted ourselves and the second project we told him to run with. They took our vision, script and rough drafts and created a beautiful composition. They offered insight, told us what shots would work and made a video that blew our clients away. I could not have been more thrilled with how the video turned out. They were all patient, listened to our needs and went above an beyond. The second video was from an event that we had him and his team photograph and video. We gave them no direction on this one, just told them we wanted a marketing promo video. They were there for the whole event and came out with awesome photos and a beautiful video. I will most definitely be hiring them again for upcoming events. They were all easy to work with, fun, and outgoing guys. Thanks for all of you hard work and I look forward to working with you again.

Sharon and her team provided videography services for a wedding for my clients in October. As an event planner, i was quite impressed with her follow thru and commitment to my detailed time line. Her experience as a director and producer added a sence of flair to our experience with her you won't get with other videographers in the wedding industry. I would highly recommend her again when it comes to shooting a wedding.

We hired Videographic as the videographer for our wedding (Nov 2016). Iheny and her staff are AWESOME. We (more so me than he) are very particular and spent extensive time vetting and reviewing potential companies. Iheny met and surpassed the mark of excellence. She listened to our vision for the memories of our day and captured them just as we desired. She always had a great disposition and was very easy going. I had 2 separate companies for photography and videography and both were able to seize the once in a life time moments for their respective parts. Trust this review and look no further, HIRE VIDEOGRAPHIC!

I hired TriPro for our twins boys 2 year old party/house warming party. Definitely recommend this team for any event you may need video production. He was punctual and as soon as he arrived he was doing exactly what he was supposed to without me having to give him any directions. I was so busy trying to finish details prior to our gathering. He made sure to capture so many moments that I didn’t even get to see from spending time with our guest and my boys. All the details from the decorations, the food, emeinent moments with my sons and our family. He went out of his way and even used a drone which was perfect to the end of the party with balloons release. The weather wasn’t so great, so he even came back so that he could capture some of the views with better lighting. Would definitely hire and recommend you do the same for your next event. Gerson is professional, punctual and dedicated. He even helped me put together a slideshow to display in our TV. I opted for the “movie video” which is definitely more personable and you will enjoy it better. Thank you for the great memories TriPro, till next year

I highly recommend JPro Studio to future brides or anyone needing a videographer. I was blown away with how good our video turned out. The quality of the video was fantastic, and the audio was crystal clear. They're extremely professional, prompt, friendly and simply a pleasure. We can't thank JPro Studio enough for the incredible wedding video they filmed and created for us.

Stones Media did our videography for our wedding and we can't stop talking about how amazing it turned out! Quinton goes above and beyond to make sure that he captures every special moment! He responds very quickly and the turn around time for the video was so fast! Thank you, thank you, thank you for helping us to relive those memories!

I am constantly in awe of Andy's work. He shot an event for me not long ago and his work was outstanding; the more I see the more I love and appreciate his work. But it's his ability to capture both the nuances and the focal points in a frame and tell a whole story that amazes me! I have purchased several of his prints since, and will continue to promote his work!

We found Marco as a professional and pleasing personality. His punctuality and diligence is definitely worth the money. As an upcoming photographer, he is open to ideas, respectful to client and follows directions well when asked. Only suggestion is he can be a little more proactive with guests when taking event photos. In any way, he took some great photos for us that were liked by our friends and family!!!

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.
