It was a FUN experience! Gerson and his crew are creative and hungry for bringing a vision to life. Every shot during my set was with purpose and with emotion because they want the best for me and my brand. They know what what to do and how to do it as long as you’re vision is there. If you’re looking for a team to film, this is it.

Ray from New Vista Video provided exactly what he promised, more than I expected, and at a great price. He provided guidance on the setup, the room & audience, editing the video, and other small tips that helped me looked better on film. His turn around was super quick and I would be happy to hire him again.

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.

I am a videoproducer in S. CA, and I needed a medical procedure filmed in Houston, and hired Otto to film the procedure and be "in charge" of the shoot. He did great, was very communicative throughout the entire hiring, filming and delivery process, is easy to work with, and is attentive to every aspect of the job. When I need more filming in Houston, Otto will be the first person I will call.

Julio amazed us with his ability to take what ideas we had of things we wanted included in the video and add even more special moments. He quickly gets to know you and then offers staging ideas that compliment your personalities. His footage is incredible, the way he captures precious moments at various angles and then puts it all together to form a beautiful film. Julio is passionate about what he does and is an absolute pleasures to work with. I highly recommend Julio for any filming dreams you may have!

I have had the pleasure of working with Christian Scott on two occasions. In both situations, I was very impressed with her business and social skills. She was highly professional and at the same time, very warm and approachable. I have found in the film industry, it is the norm for people to brush you off or make you feel insignificant. Ms. Scott is quite the opposite! She genuinely cares about the people she works with. As the mother of an aspiring teenage actress, I am always juggling schedules & I am only successful if I have good communication with the production company. I really appreciate Christian's attention to detail and staying in touch with us throughout the process. My daughter and I look forward to working with Christian Scott again. She's a delight!

I've had several collaborations with SGP over the years starting as a very raw and amateur straight through to becoming an experienced professional. At every level SGP gave me their very best and proved to not only be consumate professionals, but also created a relaxed atmosphere which kept the creative process flowing no matter how late into the night we worked. Whatever your project be, from laying dowm tracks to making an entire film, you can't go wrong with SGP.

Aja's eye for what works on the screen along with her ability to be flexible enough to work within my personality, creative enough to make modifications on the fly and a consummate professional allowed my video to exceed expectations. The turn around time between filming, editing, re-edits and final product was extremely punctual especially with her communicating throughout the entire process. I look forward to working with her on future projects and strongly recommend her to anybody looking to have media work done. James Brown Jamesbrownjr360

Verified review

We had several videographers to choose from when we were planning our daughter’s birthday party, but we are so happy we went with Coco. He’s an excellent film maker. He is soft-spoken and very respectful. He was generous of his time so we could meet and plan for the big day. He listened, he shared his creative ideas and vision for the event, and he delivered. He asked questions to make sure he’d capture important moments, and at the party itself he was not just taking a video, he was creating a film -- as evidenced by the finished product. We loved his style and his editing skills are topnotch. His rates are on the pricier side (and we are thankful he was flexible on his payment policy), but it was worth every penny. It took quite a while for the highlight video to be completed, but it was definitely worth the wait.

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.
