Ray WOWED me from my initial interaction with him. I began to research for the videographer we wanted to capture for the day I married my husband. We decided to elope, so capturing our wedding by video was extremely important to us. Ray IMMEDIATELY responded to my email and was VERY quick to get back to me with excellent attention to detail, understanding of what I would need on the day of my wedding, and offering to support me as I had not even chosen my venue/even visited Charleston. I am usually on top of most details and to find an artist that understood the attention to detail of how I work and to exceed my expectation is also VERY hard to find. Ray was patient, and from day one sent ideas to show the concept that he could create for our day! I was speechless and so excited from day 1!! Ray made time to reach out to us on many occasions and to do a consultation with us to discuss where we wanted to get married and what shots we wanted to have the day of. I sent over an Itinerary and PowerPoint and he thoughtfully provided feedback that supported my organization and planning on the day off! Ray had already gave me immense confidence and trust that he would provide a beautiful video to cherish for life. He explained his plan and what he would need from us on the day of to make sure we would capture an amazing video! This made me feel confident that he understood the importance of having him on our day. Ray drove 12 hours to meet us and was early, so kind, positive, and confident and helped organize everyone before I arrived. Ray captured our wedding with utmost professionalism! He kept us laughing, providing a plan for our video session throughout Magnolia Plantations, and encouraged me to relax to get better shots. At one point I was shaking from nerves and his calm demeanor put me at ease before I walked down the aisle. I am not photogenic or comfortable around cameras but Ray knew exactly how to set me up (private and away from people) so that I could relax and capture the footage for our video. He set up time individually with my husband prior to the wedding to get some private footage and did the same for me. Ray was EXTREMELY flexible to split his time and even worked longer than we hired him for so that we could capture some awesome footage and sunset shots!!! I would love love love to do more video sessions with Ray in the future as he is not just an EXCELLENT AND TALENTED videographer…which he is. Ray is incredibly kind, soooo funny, so very professional, and takes his work extremely serious. Scott and I feel incredibly blessed to have Ray and to have had him capture our Wedding. I would ABSOLUTELY recommend having him as your videographer for ANY event…you will be so so grateful you hired him!!

My experience was one of the best, Karen and her team are the kindest people to work with, They know how to make you feel comfortable, and they are very professional! When I got my pictures, I relived the day of my wedding, The pictures them selves are out of this world, I had never felt so beautiful till I saw those pictures of me and my husband! She got everything, From the beginning til the ending! I was nervous something were not going to look right but in those pictures, It is everything I wanted and more! She got all the decoration in depth and I look the pictures and know my dream wedding was done just the way I wanted, the way I dreamed. The highlight video was just goregous 😭 I have gotten so many compliments regarding my pictures and now the video ❤️ Thank you so much!

I will never look for a photographer again as long as M Gman Photography is around. The absolute best experience ever. I would recommend this service to anyone I know. She was awesome from wedding prep pics to the reception including family pictures and she thought of everything! We had such a great experience that we already booked her for an upcoming baby gender reveal party for my family! Without a doubt.........5 out of 5 stars!

Natalie and Zach created our wedding (10/3/2015) video for us - and the video turned out beautifully. They were also so easy to work with, I spoke with Natalie once before the wedding, and exchanged a few emails, to cover what I was looking for - and based on just that she and Zach came back with a video that I absolutely loved. They were also so kind to me on my wedding day, and helped keep it as stress-free as possible. I highly recommend working with them.

Zach is an amazing, talented, and true professional at what he does. He is dedicated to making you feel comfortable and at ease for your big day! There were several areas of focus that I wanted him to capture, and he nailed it! My friends, family, and people I don't even know are still raving about The wedding trailer. Thank you so much for capturing Alex and my special day so that we can remember for years to come!

He arrived on time for the rehearsal for my wedding and was very prepared for the actual wedding date. I thought he was very professional and kind. He did everything that we wanted and I really liked all the camera angles he used and the editing on our wedding video was very well put together and it looked very nice overall. I was very happy and satisfied with Calvin's services and I would definitely recommend him. I don't think anyone else could have done a better job!

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!!

About

I believe love can be unpredictable and unconventional, and that every couple has a unique story to tell. I also believes that every session needs to be crafted with the vision and needs of my clients in mind. In short: I've got your back. Want to climb to the top of a mountain for your engagement shoot? I may be a few steps behind, but I'm more than up for the adventure. Is your vision a bit more classic? I'll swap out the twigs and dirt for a more upscale session. I'll do most anything to ensure your shoot is exactly how you imagined it. No idea is too big or too small, and I love to collaborate with my clients over coffee or a brew. Ready to document your love story? I can't wait to meet you!

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.
