Nazim couldn't have been better about communication throughout the process. He arrived right on time for my event, and it was evident that he wanted to get the video/photos perfect for us. He also got the video back to us very quickly (within a couple of weeks of the event). The video quality was good; the sound quality of the video wasn't as good as we hoped, but that is because of a rough video angle/set-up and outdoor conditions. Overall, I would highly recommend Nazim's services.

Very pleased with the work was done for my Open House I really didn't know what I wanted or needed done so I was very please with Mr. Turner's ability to make an outstanding video and photos. And his video was so much better than I could ever imagined. He was very professional and will use he for all my professional and person photography needs and will recommend his company to all my friends and family.

Great experience working with Dave! He was helpful, informative, fast to jump on the project and finished quickly. He transferred 27 home movie tapes from 8mm video cassettes to mpg files on a hard drive. Everything was well-organized and returned in the same shape I left with him. Would highly recommend Dave's services!

We are currently working with them on our first project - video advertisements for both TV and Digital/Online, using motion graphics (as opposed to shot video) in these first spots. We really enjoy working with them and have a number of additional video projects in line for them, including shooting some of our live events. This is a young crew compared to some of the others we interviewed, but they are super professional, talented, and they were willing to partner with us to deliver video services to our licensees across the U.S.. We look forward to working with them on an on-going basis.

Eileen and Howe were so great to work with for our corporate event photography! We had a two-day conference with 19 speakers and over 400 attendees. They were able to take great shots of the speakers, our sponsors and exhibit booths along with great crowd shots. She and Howe were very professional and gave us back our photos within days after the event along with video footage and a video montage. We will definitely keep in touch for future photography services! www.einsurancesymposium.com

Julian filmed my wedding ( after another videographer fell through) and did a great job. He made strong efforts to meet with us before hand, find out what we were looking for, and take good notes. He is great at communicating and staying in touch to verify all requests, and make sure he is able to follow through with the requests. I had no difficulty or concerns with him. Our venue was very small, and he still made the best efforts to get the best angles and sound quality. My final production he sent to me made me cry! I love the way he edited the raw footage and compiled it into a video. He did all of this for us at a reasonable price, with short notice, and got quality service. *** Did I mention there was a snowstorm/ icestorm the weekend of my wedding- but that didn't stop him! Julian is so nice and very much a people pleaser! Would refer him to everyone!

Michelle is super personable and was really willing to work with what I wanted my video to be like but also had ideas of her own in case I was indecisive or didn't have a preference in a certain area. She got my video back to me quickly and her prices were super super affordable considering the incredible quality of the video! Highly recommend. She's also a super fun, down to earth, relatable person and anyone would be lucky to work with her!

When I started to look at videographers & photographers 4500Films was the first website I went to. I knew from watching one video that 4500Films was it! I had to have Mel & Cyndee photograph & take video of our wedding! From the very beginning Mel & Cyndee were amazing! My bridal pictures were an absolute blast with the two of them acting silly & everyone feeling like one big family!! I couldn't have asked for a better team. Our wedding pictures are absolutely stunning. The video is breathtakingly perfect! My husband & I couldn't be happier! We can't thank 4500Films enough for capturing ALL of the perfect moments from our big day!!

I’ve worked with Mr. Chapman on several Corporate events and he’s quick to identify a possible concern and offers a quick solution. He’s very personable and professional with all involved and his audio knowledge is phenomenal. He’s also quite adept at Video solutions as well so I have referred him over to other companies for a quality production job done right!

He is very thorough with his work. I am very pleased with the job he did at my bridal shower. I have now hired him for the wedding. What was most memorable is that he added a nice touch to the highlight video with my crown and septa saying congratulations to me. I loved and cherish that small detail.

I contacted Steve at Vader to document a commercial rental I had. It was the first time I used Steve. He provided me with photos and a video. The most impressive thing to me was the Aerial photos showing access to roads and highways. My clients rental property was rented quickly and with little fuss.

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.
