Jeff was AMAZING at my recent wedding. He was professional, interactive and even stayed almost an extra hour when we were running behind. Would recommend Jeff to any bride who is looking for some quality coverage of her wedding day!

It was and has been such a pleasure working with Derek!! We found him through Thumbtack, and, at the time, we also were looking for a wedding photographer. He recommended and had worked with All Things Beautiful Photography, LLC (also in Richmond, VA) in the past. They offered a combo videographer/photographer deal at the time, which we found very reasonable, so we proceeded with them for our wedding photographer and videographer. Since we didn't know him personally at first, we were a bit nervous at the start. But oh man, did those nerves go away after we hung out with Derek during our engagement session. He traveled up with our photographer from Richmond to Alexandria, VA (not a quick or easy trip) for our engagement session in April to film part of our shoot (so kind of him!). We had coffee first, went over some wedding details, then went exploring for our engagement photos. We knew then we made the best choice for our wedding videographer. After hanging out for half the day, we were able to get to know Derek on a personal basis, and he wasn't just someone we worked with, but a friend. And then, if things couldn't get better, we watched the video of our engagement session--absolutely beautiful. We couldn't wait to see him in November for our wedding!! When our wedding day finally came, it was like seeing a good friend you hadn't seen in months, full of big hugs, and we knew he was going to do great work. It was a VERY cold and blustery day but he toughed it out like a champ. It meant so much knowing an expert was there capturing our very special moments that we could watch for years to come. We absolutely loved how humble, encouraging and kind he is, which is evident by how much he encourages and promotes those he works with. We absolutely love Derek and cannot recommend him enough!!!! We are so thankful that God pointed us in his direction, and that he recommended our wedding photographer to us (equally amazing!). We look forward to staying in touch for the years to come. Thank you Derek for all that you've done and are doing for Dave and me!!!!!! We are so thankful for you!!! (Disclaimer to the reader--because we loved him and his work so much you likely will see this review on multiple wedding sites. Hope this speaks to his work and talent!!!)

Mitchell was awesome! Not only was he willing to travel to Virginia Beach to shoot our wedding, but he was super friendly and did a great job. He is very affordable for wedding videography but is still very high quality. If you are getting married in Virginia and are looking for videographers, you need to talk to Mitchell.

We contracted with John and his lovely wife Connie for pictures and video of our September 24th wedding. Their level of professionalism was outstanding with a personal touch capturing the intimate moments of our special day. They are 1st class and we would highly recommend them as well as use them again for future events.

Nick and Shannon did such a good job shooting our wedding in Charlottesville. We had a rainy day and they made the most of it by doing some really creative shots. The rain pictures ended up being some of our favorites. They came early and scouted out our locations and also got some photos of us getting ready, which I love. Definitely an amazing value and I would highly recommend!

We hired Karea and her partner to photograph an outside wedding. We were incredibly impressed with the job that she and her partner did. Their creativity was absolutely fantastic and the photos turned out amazing! Karea was very professional in working with us and was always responsive...every time I called her she picked up on the first few rings and I don't think I ever had to leave a voicemail! In addition, Karea was very accommodating and happily improvised at the last minute when we had to change a few key factors. It was incredibly hot and humid the day of the wedding, yet Karea and her partner happily kept working and did not complain even once about the horrific heat. Highly recommend!

    I hired Dynasty Productions LLC to take pictures and record video for an event that I had. They arrived early, took great shots, and edited the video into a short movie. They were a pleasure to work with and quickly took care of all the concerns I had. I would definitely choose Dynasty Productions LLC to render their services for any photography or videography needs I'll have in the future.

    Derrick was amazing to work with, my video turned out amazing, I get goosebumps every time I watch either video, (Ceremony & Highlights).

    I hired Ian to to do video for a small, somewhat organized wedding last minute that I was photographing. He was early, professional and very knowledgeable about how to shoot with the harsh summer direct sun. While I was doing my shots throughout the chaos, he always made sure to not shoot across me as so we were filming each other! Oh - and he was shooting 4K the whole time! I was not expecting that - very cool! -Nick Springer

    A speech with three audio and two video feeds. I was a "moving target" on stage. Excellent audience captures. He was on time and professional throughout the 2 hour event. The quality of the finished product was well worth his charges.

      I have to say that hiring Starring You Productions was one of the best decisions I made for my wedding day. The films are amazing, and far surpassed my expectations. Starring You is professional and the work was completed on the exact date that the contract stated and they are very quick with responses. Videography was the last thing on my wedding list. I wasn't sure that I needed it and I couldn't decide if the cost was worth it. I did a lot of debating with myself and didn’t tell my fiancé until the day that we were meeting to sign the contract :). I decided that you only get one chance to capture the most important day that you have dreamed about your whole life. When the link to the completed films came in, I was completely blown away. It was worth every penny to recapture the moments that you missed during the wedding. I was able to go back and see everything and everyone from the most important day in my life. Your wedding day goes by so fast and you miss so much, with the video I can see it again whenever I want !!! I can’t say enough great things about my videos and Starring You Productions. My favorite and most important part is the wedding highlight. I watched it over and over again the first day that I received the link and cried every time. The wedding highlight is such a special way to capture the day, and to be able to share it with people in a 3 minute clip. I will refer Starring you to everyone that I know. Truly a wonderful company to work with and I have an amazing film for the rest of my life!

      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.
