I had a great experience with Friday Photos! They were available on short notice when another local professional photographer had backed out on a patriarch's birthday and family reunion photography session that had been planned in advance with many out-of-town guests. The quality of work was excellent on the still photography shots as well as on the video that was provided, all of them done in high definition (HD) quality. Arrangement of the group and individual family shots was well composed, with patience to wait for the more ideal shots of the small children in them. Highly recommended and will use again!

Our last minute event didn't turn out quite as we expected. We were worried what the 90 second clip would look like, but it was amazing! Great last minute find and within 48 hours, even with a revision!, we had an amazing HD video in hand! Amazing job!

Wilson is still waiting on me to supply the music for my wedding video, so the video isn't finished, but I'm sure we will love it. What I can say is that he showed up on time, was responsive, answered all my questions, and was very easy to schedule and work with. The event coordinator at the church commented that she was impressed with him when she spoke with him prior to the event. I would definitely recommend Possum Creek Media.

John was wonderful. Our family asked John to produce a video capturing the memorial celebration for my sister-in-law. Despite major challenges for lighting and sound presented by our venue, John worked relentlessly to produce an amazing final product. To say that John went above and beyond would be a gross understatement. Quite frankly, he worked on the video as if he were a family member who knew how important this video was to all of us. Thank you John for creating a video that so effectively captured her spirit and the celebration of her life that we can share with friends and family. We are incredibly grateful.

I hired Phil with Lee Editorial to film and edit a new demo video for solo violin. He has great equipment and filmed in 4K (Ultra HD), which turned out beautiful high quality footage. He also went above and beyond in answering my questions and revising the video to get it just right. Great work.

Firre was completely professional and delightful to work with. His creative approach, guidance of poses and suggestions made the photos fun. He's flexible and easy to work with. We had him do video too and his video team worked like ninjas, making themselves unobtrusive while getting tons of great scenes. I can't wait to get our highlight video and all of the photos. Thanks to The GRACE Pictures team we will have great memories from our special day to enjoy for the rest of our lives. My sister is from the San Francisco area and she sees lots of high-dollar photographers and she was very impressed with The GRACE Pictures . So was I and I would definitely use them again!

Davis Creative couldn't have done a better job handling a big job on such a short notice. My company needed a quality video to send us into our biggest year of marketing and growth yet, and Davis Creative was able to take my vision and make it a reality with precision, ingenuity, and timeliness. They quickly turned out the video in the short deadline we needed, and they extended so much courtesy during the whole process. I'd recommend Davis Creative to anyone needing quality video work, and I hope to use them again for Common Desk promotions in the future.

My wife and I got married on 11.03.12. J&J did a FANTASTIC job on our wedding video. They were on time; they were courteous and great to work with. They had multiple HD cameras and captured lots of moments that we were not able to see or enjoy during the event, which makes our video that much more valuable to us. A short time after the ceremony they contacted us and asked us if we had any song suggestions which we sent to them and they used perfectly. We would not hesitate to use them again and we would strongly recommend them to anyone that might need a videographer for any occasion. GREAT job guys!! Look forward to using you all again as our children start to have events in their lives.

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.
