My wedding date was April 22,2016 and we had to relieve our previous hired photographer from his services for our personal reasons of the work ethic a month before the date. I found Brian via Thumbtack and he was prompt and effiecient with answering all of my questions. My husband and I took a leap of Faith and hired him with him shooting us. I can say that I was beyond IMPRESSED! He was on time to the venue with his assistant. He captured our entire evening, because you do miss a lot as a bride. I received shoots and video footage that I'm still going over because it's sooo much and brings me to tears each time. Our wedding was an average size of 125 ppl and Brian and his team took it on like a champ. Brides and Grooms you will NOT be disappointed!

Derrick and Heather are amazing! They made it so easy, working around us, guiding/directing us as needed, stopping traffic... They are the dream team of wedding videography. They first provided us with a video snippet, followed by a highlight film, and finished off with a full feature video, all within 2 months of our wedding. The turnaround time was excellent and the videos are incredible-- they have such an artistic way of piecing together music, voices, and video segments. They are truly exceptional, especially for the value. We remain AMAZED and IMPRESSED. The full video is stunning and captures our day perfectly! Working with Derrick and Heather was the best decision we made for our wedding day. Thank you both for capturing our love, family, and friends!

We hired Chris to take wedding pictures for my daughter. He did a great job asking questions to find out exactly what we had in mind, got some special pics I asked for and all-in-all did a wonderful job. We later hired him to do a video of an annual event for us, and he did a wonderful job capturing the overall scene as well as capturing all of folks attending. And he added the same music that we had playing to the video! It was great, and Chris is so nice and pleasant to work with. We were totally happy and will recommend him to others wanting video or still photography!

Kevin has been doing video production work for me for two years for The Restaurant Channel. I have used up to six other producers, but Kevin seems to have a great way of understanding what outcomes I want and his course over the years has been one of constantly improving to provide a better and better product at a fair price. He is honest and cares about the quality of his work. I highly recommend him for everything from camera work to edit to finished product. He's top notch.

I cannot say enough good things about Hopemedia Videography! I contacted Victor about two weeks prior to my project launch date as I initially was planning to do the filming myself. I'm so glad I chose to trust Victor with the videography for my first YouTube video. Victor is a true professional in every sense of the word. He did a wonderful job of capturing my personality and demonstrating my message visually. It was heartwarming to go back and watch the clip of my vision brought to life. Victor met with me prior to the actual day of filming, to discuss my ideas and then again on the day of filming. My final clip turned out wonderfully and I received over 100 views the first night that I launched my YouTube Channel to the public. I will remain in contact with Victor and aim to utilize his services for future projects.

I give Justin 5 stars and if I could add more i would. I was doing a birthday shout-out video for a friend's birthday. I was sent videos through text message and emails. Although the quality of some videos were not the best, Justin really made it work. He was professional and made it convenient to meet up with him. I really enjoyed working ob this project but I really appreciate Justin making this memory come together for my friend's birthday.

My work stands out from others because, I offer much lower rates than competitors, as well as in most cases, my work is generally done in less than one week. My clients are happy and excited when they are given their complete project in three to four days, and that is my main concern....happy customers. I love meeting people, and I enjoy putting forward the time and effort to work on projects, knowing when it is complete, it comes out as a Grade-A project. I also get a joy out of 'Bloopers'. Although time is very valuable, bloopers are known to build more of a relationship between myself and the client as we share laughs, making it to be a more fun and relaxed work inviroment.

About

I started as a video editor. I then learned how to market an online business from Internet multi millionaire Tom Antion. He is one of the 'good guys' on the Internet, only using ethical methods of marketing online. Through him, I've learned every aspect of Internet marketing. The 'end goal' of video marketing is important to understand. I have this understanding. Also, there are very few YouTube Marketers out there. I'm an author of numerous YouTube books. I have created multiple products related to video marketing, and I'm the head instructor at the Internet Marketing Training Center of Virginia.

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.
