Morteza took photography for my daughter's 16th birthday. Morteza Has got lot of great qualities. 1. Morteza Communication skills are very sharp. He makes sure every statement we talk is understood by him. Morteza Also speaks very sharply 2. Morteza Photos are really outstanding and the quality is beyond this world 3. Morteza Moves around and takes photography of each group of people in the party at the right time when they are dancing, laughing, excited which makes him like a hollywood photographer. 4. Morteza Gave around generously 400 different photos instead of his agreed upon 200 for our function. 5. Morteza Is constantly moving and looking for people and group to shoot photos. 6. Morteza also fixes one camera in a particular location and takes close up photos and full body photos of people. 7. Morteza Has two high quality professional photo and he uses efficiently ( one walking and other inviting people ) 8. It is a pleasure to work with Morteza because he is a sweet person and extremely enjoying his work 9. I have never seen such great photos ever in my life. 10. The hourly rate he charges is also well below other photographers. 11. Morteza Has tremendous experiences in the international level in very big high level sports and arts functions. I am extremely pleased we hired Morteza for three hours.

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+++

Super super professional, highly recommended. We see his portfolio and projects on the website and were impressed with work he had done. So, we decided to hire him as a photographer for our wedding ceremony and party. We had a very pleasure experience with him and were extremely captivated with the quality artistic photos he provided. The whole event lasted about 9 hours in two locations. He is exceptionally capable of handling the whole event shooting. We don’t have any idea what will come out but the final photos he delivered were STUNNING and very ARTISTIC!!! The whole time, he was able to walk around shooting candid photos to capture the touching moments as well as shooting the photos in the way we want. He guided us on how to pose and be able to instantly utilize the scenes to shoot photos perfectly. The delivery of the photos was in only three days that is much quicker than other professionals we have heard of. We definitely will use him for other occasions.

I hired JTM media for my wedding in October. From beginning to end Tiffany was fantastic. They're a husband and wife team but I dealt with Tiffany throughout the entire process. Their rates are very reasonable and their service was outstanding. Tiffany was very accommodating and gave me very good suggestions when I wasn't quite sure of the direction that I wanted to go. The engagement photos were great and I can't wait to see all the beautiful wedding shots and the video. I recommend JTM for your photography needs. So much so, I'm using them again for family Christmas pictures.

My experience with Dominique was amazing. We did a commercial photoshoot for my line of swimsuits and he went above and beyond! The shoot took about 2 hours. He made the model very comfortable and he was fun to work with. the turn around time was also much faster than any other photographer I've ever dealt with. He returned the photos the very next day! I've already set up our next 2 shoots with him!! I definitely recommend him for hire!

Patrick was called in, at the last minute, to film our team's playoff baseball game in Tomball. While the outcome of the game was not to our liking, Patrick did a great job in capturing warm ups, a entire field video of the game and a side shot with a 2nd camera. The results were awesome and he provided me the raw footage to use in the team's end of season video. Thanks for the great work, great price, and great results on short notice!

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 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.

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.
