Lee was an amazing photographer for the job! He was punctual, professional, and ready to rock. He shot tons of pictures and had a very quick turnaround to share the best ones. He even shot some video, too, since he had multiple memory cards to fill. We are surely going to use him again in the future! A+++

https://youtu.be/zat_611OiIs: This video will give you an idea of the tremendous work that was done for us and our association. Daniel was a pleasure to work with and met all of our expectations and exceeded. He met our particular demands and was able to gracefully handle a 300 people, 22 sponsors and 6 speaker event. He came in and just knew what to do and I'm very happy to refer Daniel to any of my colleagues within our network. Thanks Daniel for the great videos and photos.

My company's brand identity started with a street sign near where I live. From there I reached out to LoveWell Creative via Thumbtack and received a response from Scott within minutes. I ultimately chose LoveWell Creative because I liked what I saw on their website and they were local. Scott met me in person and we talked about the vision for my company's branding. A day or two later, Scott gave me a couple of proposals and we narrowed it down to the final product. The whole process took less than a week, and now I've got a pretty cool logo. I'm thinking about using LoveWell Creative to design my company's website, as well as record video content to use on my website.

We're very pleased with the cinematic quality throughout the entire video of our two-day wedding event! The scenes were taken in unique, artistic angles that I appreciate as an artistic individual myself. The scenes were well-put together. I loved how the videography team stayed in touch with us before, during, and after the completion of the project to ensure our satisfaction has been fully met. When there were a couple of missing clips of the ceremony, the lead videographer worked with his team to resolve within just a few days. Their quick response shows how much they care about our happiness. We're more than satisfied with the outcome of our engagement ceremony and wedding ceremony/reception! We'll never get tired of rewatching these moments. The pricing of our video package was very reasonable for the quality of work they brought to this project!

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. 👍🏾👏🏾💯

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.
