John was easy to work with and highly knowledgable. He helped record a TEDx event with skill and reacted well under pressure. I would work with him again without a doubt.

Last night I had a superhero/super villain birthday party for my son and John Luciano was the Deejay/karaoke DJ. The event was very successful thanks in part to John. He was professional and lively throughout the whole night. If I could have giving him more stars I would. If I need a DJ for another event, he will be my first call.... In short I highly recommend him. Thank you Arlene and Elijah Gordon

My experience with Derek has been absolutely outstanding! I give Derek a 10 for his professionalism & his expertise! He is also a very sincere individual which is absolutely significant in producing an audiovisual that will last a lifetime of improbable memories. He met every expectation & I can be very demanding at times.Derek truly produced an extraordinary video that surpassed my expectations. It was created for my daughter’s First Holy Communion which was a very special day. I wanted Derek to integrate portraits of my daughter & her Grandma into the video before the ceremony & afterward at the reception. I also requested two different songs to be incorporated into the video which he unquestionably agreed to do. My mom is very sick & couldn’t attend the ceremony & Derek was very compassionate to my every request. Honestly, I give Derek MY ABSOUTLE HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION to anyone that sincerely would like the VERY BEST audiovisual produced! He really takes the time to research the location before the event takes place. He also went out of his way to speak to the director of the church to make sure he had all the aspects of the videotaping precisely in order. Derek had without a questionable doubt had every SINGLE detail in place before the event even took place! VERY, VERY IMPRESSIVE! Our family would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for such an incredible momentous!

I hired DJ LawFirm for my my daughter Shannon's 17th birthday party. Her and her friends had a good time. Before the event he met with me and went over what my duaghter wanted. The price was very reasonable to were my budget allowed for me extend the time I wanted a DJ to an additional hour. I was very excited because I actually waited 24 hours to respond to his offer but as soon as I did he was contacting me. Thanks for being Professional. We will use his services again if and when it's needed again.

Andrea has provided excellent service right from beginning. She was very patient to send many samples in picking right balloon colors and finalizing the design. She was always prompt in responding back. On the day of event she arrived few minutes earlier and has done an excellent job. And the price was very competitive too. All of my guests loved the decorations and inquired about the decorator. Will definitely hire them again for future events.

Charles Batteau Video services has produced business, non-profit and special event videos for a number of years. Recently they added high def camera equipment and the video resolution is excellent. I've had the pleasure of working with Chuck on several productions and have found him to be very detail oriented and very conscientious in working with clients in a professional manner. I highly recommend contacting him for a quote on your next video project!

    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.

      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.

      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.
