We couldn't be more pleased with Monumental Arts. We had a very unconventional wedding, but the photographer adapted easily and came up with some great shots. He was professional and considerate and the photos we got were fabulous. We would definitely recommend them.

Party Favor Photo was so much fun to have at our wedding reception! They were punctual and set everything up with no issues at all. They were completely professional and very easy to communicate with in the days leading up to our wedding, and they had all of our digital photos available for viewing the day after the event, which was faster than I expected! Our guests loved having both the photobooth prints and the digital versions available for viewing, and the pictures turned out really well. One thing I appreciated beyond words is that the photobooth attendant flagged my husband and I down at the end of the night, right after our send-off, and told us that we should do a quick shoot in the photobooth since we hadn't had a chance to do so over the course of the very busy and hectic night. That was so sweet and thoughtful, and we both appreciated her thinking of that for us. I had no complaints and wouldn't hesitate to use them again, or recommend them!

What an amazing artist! Was very nervous about my and my fiancees first ever photo shoot. Paul was so laid back and so professional . He really made it a comfy atmosphere and just very natural. He really took his time and made sure we had the best session we could. He made my super shy fiancee very comfortable. The pictures were edited and given to us in a very timely fashion. Not only was our engagement photos amazing and the session a huge success but we have also decided that even though we live in NJ he will be our wedding photographer he is worth every sent and with that being said i highly recommend Paul for your photo needs you cant go wrong. Thank you so much Paul

Working with Jeff has been a great experience. He offered to take photos for my wedding. His preference is for small to medium weddings - so ours was right in his wheelhouse. Working with a small budget and very short notice he managed to provide professional photographs that have exceeded my expectations. He managed to get many pictures without being intrusive. And many of them are so amazing because they are so candid and unexpected. These are some of my favorites ones. I highly recommend Jeff to anyone who is looking for a reasonably priced photographer for their wedding or special event.

I researched photographers in the Atlanta area and decided to use Jenny Wright Photography for a birthday photo shoot, in which my husband and I enjoyed working with Jenny. She was very professional and receptive to any ideas I had in terms of location and potential shots. I even suggested an imaging technique that many photographers use to isolate a pop of color and she researched how to do the technique and sent me a separate cd within days of me emailing her. Now that is customer service at its best! I wish Jenny best of luck in her future endeavors, especially as she is getting ready to embark on getting more into wedding photography. I would recommend brides in the area to try jenny if you are looking for reasonable prices and someone who is easy to work with.

My contract with Ashshanae only included pictures however out of courtesy she even video recorded the ceremony. She was very professional, punctual and responsive. Her work is amazing and I am so glad I choose Ashshanae as our wedding photographer. Thank you Ashshanae!!!

Robyn is a complete professional with an amazing eye for photography. As much as I hate getting my picture taken, Robyn made it easy and fun! I have some of the BEST graduation pictures of myself and sister (College/HS graduations respectively) because of Robyn. I would absolutely recommend her anytime for any photo shoot. She has some fantastic themes/ideas for fun pictures as well as the traditional family and "big event" type pictures (wedding/engagement/graduation,etc).

Candace was the photographer for my wedding and I loved both the photos and her wonderful work style that enabled her to fit seamlessly into an intimate, family event. Because we had a more intimate event, Candace brought a more creative, editorial approach to our photos that successfully told our unique story. I learned that she has a TV producer background and her visual storytelling skills were on full display. Finally, she has the most lovely personality. It was as if a close, trusted friend was capturing the memories from our special day. I give Candace my highest recommendation.

Brandon was really easy to work with and communicative with what we needed for our wedding day. Our wedding was almost 450 people and combined both Indian and Afghan traditions, and still Brandon was able to capture both cultures and the energy and excitement of our guests so beautifully. I'd definitely recommend Brandon to anyone looking for a wedding videographer in the area!

True vine films did our videography for our wedding about three years ago and they did an absolute phenomenal job! The final result exceeded my expectation. True Vine captured every special moment my husband and I shared on that day! I have referred several friends and family to them as well and all have had the same positive report! I would recommend them to anyone looking for great quality to capture their big 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.  

How much does it cost for a photographer for a wedding?

Finding the right wedding photographer can make a big difference for your ceremony. Nationally, the average wedding photographer’s price ranges from $800 to $1,000, but costs can be much higher in areas like Chicago, New York or Los Angeles where some couples spend $2,000 to $5,000 or more for the photographer they want. Factors that can affect your wedding photographer prices include the photographer’s reputation and experience. Heavy hitters can command top rates, especially during wedding-season weekends. Day of the week also affects your cost. You may get a $200 discount on wedding photographer prices if you get married on a Friday in November rather than a Saturday in June. Time onsite is also an important cost factor. Hiring a photographer to snap photos from the moment you wake up until after last call at the reception is going to cost more than five hours of pictures during the day. Multiple photographers, special lighting, and videography will also increase your costs. Ultimately you want to find someone who has a style you love and can provide the number of edited shots you want for a price you can handle. Learn more about hiring a wedding photographer.
