I hired Flas Film Media to photograph my wedding reception. He did an excellent job. He was there before the event started to take photos of all the prep work and stayed until the end. The pictures were amazing. He got every moment and I was very pleased with his professionalism from the time we met at the initial meeting. I will definitely use him again for any future events I have.

We own a commercial construction and roofing business and needed to put together a commercial for some marketing we wanted to do. We found Micah and his team with Aume Motion Arts through Thumbtack and we couldn't be happier with the results. We'd never done anything like this but Micah helped us with a written script and told us where to show up and when. We went to his office and about an hour later we were done. We then went to one of our job sites and did a couple of takes to be added to the video and that was it. About a week later we had several different versions of the videos per our request to be used in various parts of the country and have been using the commercial every since in our marketing as well as in our bid submission packages. As a business owner myself the true test of a company is two fold...would you use them again and would you recommend them. We would and will use Aume again and we would, will and do recommend to anyone that wants to put together a commercial to promote their business or cause to use Micah, Aume and his team. I should also mention that his price was as good or better than anyone else's we looked at...and I can't imagine anyone else's service being better. We couldn't be happier.

I am a video producer based in San Diego, and I hired Jay to film my client - a keynote speaker in Dallas - and I would not be there to direct so he would be on his own filming for the day. Jay handled filming exactly as I asked him to - he even included a 2nd camera with his jib arm at no additional cost. He filmed all the footage I needed exactly as I requested, plus he filmed lots of b-roll shots and several testimonials. With Jay's excellent footage I can now edit a great 5 minute highlight video for my client. In addition, I appreciated Jay's great communication skills with me - and my client, in my absence. I expect to hire Jay again, as I have another client in Dallas that I will need him to film interviews for me.

I meet Eileen at a networking group in Coppell. I was very fond of her work on her website and felt highly comfortable with her down to earth and honest manner. I hired her to do a portrait session of myself and my parents at the Gaylord Resort in Grapevine. Quite simply, I was thrilled with the product that she delivered! She spent considerably time with us and made sure we covered all the best areas of the hotel. She had wonderful ideas for posing. She also did some beautiful special effects with some of the pictures when she edited the pictures. She is tremendously pleasant to work with, as well. Additionally, I had her make prints for my extended family. They came out gorgeous! I would definitely recommend Eileen for your photography needs, whether big or small! Sincerely, Bertha Hurels

I would like to give Tim a standing ovation for doing such an amazing job on our wedding video. He captured moments that I didn't even think to add to my shot list. He was very professional and listened to what my husband and I wanted. We opted to have him for 6 hours, so that he could film the pre-ceremony preparations. The end result was so beautiful and sentimental. He even offered to give us a highlight video to post to our social network page, how awesome is that! If I had to do it all over again, I would definitely choose Highlight Weds.

Clint was incredibly creative, patient, helpful, and knowledgeable. He communicates with you clearly, keeps you updated, and works with you to present challenges and associated solution sets. He has a base of tools, ideas, and diverse opinions that will help any project come to fruition in a timely manner. Additionally he is not over-bearing -- he listens to YOU and wants to understand YOUR vision, only adding suggestions when asked or needed. I highly recommend FlyBy for any of your video creation, filming, editing, or compiling needs.

I can’t say enough about Magdiel and his talented eye as a photographer. He truly is an artist. He perfectly captures couples big day and he has a blast doing all the engagement sessions. One of the best advice I can give is - pick a photographer you feel comfortable with and want to spend your wedding day with, because they are there every step of the way. Not only is he friendly, he is so talented and creative! He will capture the love and joy of your big day so beautifully. It is truly a work of art that you will love to share with your family and friends. Magdiel Photography is well worth the investment!

James Hayes and Idea to Reel filmed my wedding and reception in October 2011. Their expertise and professionalism was way more than I paid for. Our finished product had excellent shots with music overlaid and a menu to go directly toa certain part of the event that I would like to view just like a movie DVD. I also received my finished product in DVD and Blu Ray format. I have recommended Idea To Reel and James to several friends for birthdays, weddings, family reunions, etc.

    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.
