I trusted Errich (with extreme gratefulness) to shoot my latest film project. I'm beyond satisfied with the results of his work. Besides being DP on film projects, Errich has an impressive portfolio of photography. Need headshots? He's your guy. Need production shots of your latest play? He's your guy. Many theatres have been lucky to have him around. I will work with him again, anytime.

Steve filmed my fitness studio's group training classes for marketing material as well as took headshots of my staff. He was incredible. Not only did he make my staff feel comfortable during the shoot, he brought out their personalities and caught it on film. Steve is extremely responsive, he produces quick turnaround for editing, his ability to adapt to situations and get amazing material is second to none. He exceeded my expectations and I will ABSOLUTELY work with him again.

Tim and Peter were AHHHHMAAAAZING! I needed to find a Videographer and fast. Tim was quick to respond to my SOS for our event and was super helpful, not to mention patient with the multiple changes in decisions. Peter did an incredible job in listening to what our needs were and capturing the moments we wanted. He was always one step ahead. I couldn't have asked for a group of people to capture our event. I would highly recommend hiring these guys for any event you do.Great job El Tiburon Productions! Keep up the awesome work!

Highly recommended!! Professional, friendly, and efficient. Our film festival has hired Brian for the last 3 years to handle all of our editing needs – assembling all of the screenings we present (over 4 days), creating bumpers and promo videos – he has been excellent. He is super knowledgeable about ALL things video production/editing and works quickly, with everything on time. As a film festival, we can't risk any technical mishaps...AND I am happy to say we have not had a single issue!

Martin Wennerstrom with Video 1 Unit in Austin, Tx provided me with a phenomenal, first class video experience for my talk in San Antonio. He showed up when promised and made sure everything went off without a hitch. We had a two camera set up. I had my video two days later to review and send back to him for edits. I love what I have seen so far. I highly recommend Martin and Video 1 Unit and have already referred him to a potential new client.

We needed an affordable photographer on short notice for a large fashion show event. I was referred to 9001 Studios through a friend. I spoke with Matt the founder, owner, and creative mind behind the company. He was incredibly knowledgeable and patient. Having worked with other photographers and media personnel in the past, Matt's commitment to the customer and his attention to detail are unparalleled. He provided us not only with quality photographs, but also edited a video and created a website for us to access all the media. I couldn't be happier with the products and services provided by 9001 Studios. I highly recommend 9001 Studios for any media productions you may need, just ask for Matt. I promise you won't be disappointed.

I've worked with Paul Dubiel on a number of occasions, on my film sets. His working knowledge, professional and friendly attitude, and talent shine every time I have him on a film shoot. Every time I need to put together a film crew, he goes at the top of my list, for the core team. He is as trustworthy and committed as they get, and I have no reservations about recommending him.

Clémence Le Saux is one of the most professional individuals I've had the pleasure of working with. I have directed many short film projects throughout the city of San Antonio and always differ to for her expertise in capturing audio. She pays attention to every aspect f her craft to a surgical degree and has a real knack for making sure the Director is always happy with what she is doing.

Dallas went above and beyond for our conference event. He was a consummate professional, was able to work under tight deadlines (we needed unedited photos and b-roll after each day to create a slideshow for the following day), and incredibly collaborative. He worked with us to define our goals and needs for the event and then worked tirelessly to meet them. Plus, he was a joy to have at our conference! Would recommend to any organization looking for a dependable, creative event photographer.

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.
