We are performance artists and we hired Daniel to film our demo video. I wish we could give him more stars. He was AMAZING! We are absolutely thrilled to see the final outcome, but we have no doubt it will exceed our expectations. Daniel was professional as well as personable. He arrived on time and had was ready to work. We had a great time shooting with him. He went above and beyond, making sure we had more than enough footage to meet the needs of our project. We can't say enough about how great this experience was. We will use him for all future projects and would absolutely recommend him for any video or photo needs. Thanks so much Daniel from Amy & Madison of the Hustletown Hoopers :)

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.

The family photo shoot with Daniel and Doris went amazing and was beyond my expectations! From start to finish, Daniel and Doris were professional, timely, patient, attentive, fun, and organized to our families wishes and needs. They worked together to ensure all images were captured and perfect, which can difficult with a restless one year old! The added perk was having Doris do my makeup- she worked her magic to make this tired momma look radiating and beautiful. Daniel did amazing edits on the photos and was able to cover up the forehead wounds of our little boy who fell the day before. We are forever grateful to have theses memories and for Daniel and Doris for making it happen. We will definitely utilize their services again and highly recommend them! Thank you guys xoxo The Nguyen's

Iheny of Videographics is awesome! Not only is she very sweet and easy to be around, she is also a talented artist and cinematographer and it shows in her work! If you want attention to detail and true artistry, Iheny is your woman! We loved our wedding videos! She did such beautiful work with the filming, editing, music selections, and effects. She made everyone at our wedding look super glamorous and cool! Iheny really cares and takes an interest in her clients. We are so glad we found her and feel blessed! Her prices are very fair too. Quality of work is wonderful! In fact, my wedding photographers loved her work and also working with Iheny so much that they have recently collaborated with her to film and a produce a promotional video for their business!

I hired David Gaona (GFilms) to film a 2-camera video of a live performance held inside a recording studio, which simultaneously recorded the audio. I knew what I wanted to accomplish and how I wanted the final product to look, and David got it for me. He filmed it, sync'd the audio and edited it into a final 3 minute marketing tool. I liked his camera angles and his invisibility on the set. I mean, I knew he was there and working, but he was never a distraction. He on time, he promptly worked with all my requests and I have nothing negative to say about him. On the contrary, after that video, I hired him for a second video we are almost finished editing! I recommend David.

Ray from New Vista Video provided exactly what he promised, more than I expected, and at a great price. He provided guidance on the setup, the room & audience, editing the video, and other small tips that helped me looked better on film. His turn around was super quick and I would be happy to hire him again.

I am a videoproducer in S. CA, and I needed a medical procedure filmed in Houston, and hired Otto to film the procedure and be "in charge" of the shoot. He did great, was very communicative throughout the entire hiring, filming and delivery process, is easy to work with, and is attentive to every aspect of the job. When I need more filming in Houston, Otto will be the first person I will call.

It was a FUN experience! Gerson and his crew are creative and hungry for bringing a vision to life. Every shot during my set was with purpose and with emotion because they want the best for me and my brand. They know what what to do and how to do it as long as you’re vision is there. If you’re looking for a team to film, this is it.

They did a great job. I outlined my requirements via a word document with screen captures of my personal videos to act as a video script for them. They added special features per my request and they made it happen for a reasonable fee. I'm a happy customer and will definitely use them again when needed as well as share my experience with friends and family. They literally edited my raw video film and enhanced the quality of my film. The end result is my son's high school football highlights that have been published to YouTube for access for college coaches. 👍🏾👏🏾💯

He quickly gets to know you and then offers staging ideas that compliment your personalities. His footage is incredible, the way he captures precious moments at various angles and then puts it all together to form a beautiful film. Julio is passionate about what he does and is an absolute pleasures to work with. I highly recommend Julio for any filming dreams you may have!

We chose CA Films through a recommendation of friends and they did NOT disappoint! Coco and his team were incredibly responsive, professional and made us feel at ease throughout the entire wedding process, they were AMAZING! They had us laughing and brought such a positive happy vibe with them. They even kept me as the bride moving along as I easily get distracted and was already running behind schedule! I have seen countless wedding videos and CA Films are by far THE BEST! Our entire bridal party commented in the days after about how awesome Coco and the team were and wanted their info for future events. HIGHLY RECOMMEND CA FILMS!!

We are forever grateful to Sweet Spirit and highly recommend them to anyone looking for photography and/or videography.

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.
