I’ve had the pleasure of working with LGi Dope Films three times and each experience has been uncanning. I got in contact with LGi Dope Films to work on one of their projects and because Gamer Gad (videographer) was so professional and inviting, I was instantly prompted to use him for my own project. What really caught my eye from our first encounter was not only the essence of his work, but the time he put in to bringing his vision to life. I am a dancer and I’ve seen videographers just set up a camera on a tripod hoping to get the shot, but Gamer will have one camera set up while he’s moving alongside you, (almost as if he’s dancing as well), this for me created a connection and made me feel as though he would do whatever it takes to get the shot. When working with him on my own project, he took initiative to be apart of the experience with me and not just wait for me to tell him what to do. He gives creative insight and helps bring the production to life in ways that I might not have envisioned, but it works. This includes location as well. His conversations were quirky, but enlightening/insightful and it’s great to have a videographer to bounce ideas off of so one doesn’t have to feel as though everything needs to be set in stone because he encourages you to push the boundaries. And the best of all...he’s always prompt!! I will continue to work with LGi Dope Films in the future!! Below are some still shots of various projects we have worked on.

Andrew did an amazing job as our wedding videographer!! He was very friendly, easy to talk to, and punctual. He showed up early in the morning the day of our wedding and stayed all day to capture every moment. He gave us an incredible video that we will cherish for the rest of lives and will be able to show our children and grandchildren one day. The interviews he did with all the groomsmen and bridesmaids were so special. He invested time to get them to share memories of us and advice. So many other videographers just shove the camera in people's faces and tell them to say congratulations. Andrew worked hard to make both our short summary video and full video works of art. He was willing to go above and beyond to make sure that everything was just the way we wanted. I highly recommend him!

So many amazing things to say about Bed Dog Little Bed Productions!! To start let me say that when I first began planning my wedding I wanted to have someone attending just set up a tripod and film the ceremony because videographers were expensive and I was trying to save as much as possible. To anyone who may be thinking this in their planning process....ITS WORTH IT! The money I spent on the video was easily the best money spent on my wedding. I have already watched the entire ceremony multiple times and the 6 min film....well I am in the triple digits:)! I got to see things that I missed and relive parts I was there for. Janice was professional, personable, and all around awesome! She managed to fit in like a friend at times and others I didn't even realize she was there. If there is one tip I would give to someone planning their wedding it would be to hire Janice. You will NOT regret it!!

We were considering not having a videographer at our wedding. Matt was easy-going, professional and responsive. When I met him, I felt an instant rapport and felt he could provide the service at a reasonable price. Matt worked great with our wedding team and photographer. We had one camera person for the ceremony and reception which was all in one location. He was so amazing and flexible! We will cherish our wedding video and the highlight reel! And to top it off when he mailed me the DVD, it was had a picture of me and my adorable grandson! :) I hardly saw Matt during the event because he was pretty discreet and not a distraction. I would recommend him to capture your once-in-a-lifetime moments. Please make sure that you discuss your goals and expectations of the project to make sure you get exactly what you want.

    Justin was the videographer for my daughter's wedding in January. He was excellent! He managed to captured every moment and yet we hardly knew he was there. The finished video is wonderful (everyone who has seen it agrees) and is a perfect representation of their perfect day!!

    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.
