I have been in busines for Iten years. I had advertised on signs and had a good referral rate. But there were many potential customers that I was not reaching. My son had used Motion Media for some.projects and encouraged me to step out of my comfort zone. Everything about Motion Media was great. The video shoot has simple to do with some coaching from Dan. The outcome was superb. Am best of all my business has dramatically increased causing me to hire 2 new tutors. Many phone calls from customers start with the words, I saw your video. The cost of making the video has been far surpassed with the increase in business!

Greg is a nice photographer who deliver my photos really fast. It takes around half an hour to get the head shoots done, and finished retouching around half an hour. The schedule is flexible as well. We started the photo shooting soon after my arrival, and all background set up already. Also Greg is passionate to me while we talked about the outfit for the photo. Nice experience.

Our band needed a quality promo video for booking purposes, after getting several quotes from Thumbtack we decided to go with Chandler Media and Design. Alex was very easy to work with and we were really nit-picky about what we were looking for in our video. Alex displayed excellent communication skills and really listened to what WE wanted...when it came to editing Alex was masterful at taking a batch of song clips and finding the most dynamic and smooth way to blend them into a 5 minute video. He exceeded our expectations by far! We will be recommending Chandler Media and Design to our fellow musicians, should they be needing a great promo video. Thanks Alex! Sincerely, Midnight Pickup

They were AWESOME! They brought on a third photographer to help when they realized the size of the wedding events. They made suggestions where they knew better with their expertise and it worked out better than perfect - I.e. when the best time to take family photos. They were on time and ready to go with very creative pictures. I haven’t received my photos or video yet (it’s onky been 1 month today) but I have no doubt they will blow me away. THANK YOU!!!

I contracted Joe Moore Photography to do a video shoot for me at my kid based business. As a startup two things were important to me; quality and cost. I hit a home run with Joe and his team. I got a phenomenal product at an amazing price. In fact in less than three months I have had 45,000 click throughs and views of the video. I highly recommend Joe. He is a class act.

Jeff was a pleasure to work with. He was professional and made me feel comfortable during the entire photo shoot, which is not easy because I'm not used to getting my photo taken. I am pleased with how the photos turned out. I've attached an example of one of the photos he took. I'll be using some of these photos as my main photo on the various social platforms I use.

John and staff did a 6 hour video shoot with some specific low lighting sequences. So far everything has turned out as expected, if not better. I recommend that you take advantage of his wealth of knowledge. John also indulges in your ideas, and provides feedback. What made this experience so positive is that he took a last minute gig that had some situational snafus and helped turn it into a success. Great people make things happen. They find a way. Thumbs up. John is a true professional who went above and beyond what I hired him to do. This is what you get with an experienced pro. Thanks, John.

I can't say enough great things about working with Kristy at EmotePro. She was able to take the amateur footage that I captured from my sister's wedding 3 years ago and create a beautiful and professional montage video of the whole weekend. She created a video that is even better than what I envisioned when I was taking the footage. The video is great and I can't wait to show it to my sister! Not only does the video look great, but the development was enjoyable as well. Kristy was very responsive to my emails and calls and was able to implement any requests/suggestions that I wanted. She was also very patient with me as I am not known for my quick response times (whoops). Occasional reminders were greatly appreciated to keep the project moving forward, haha! I strongly recommend using EmotePro for any video editing/compilation needs in the future.

I first started working with Curtls Blackwell in 1981. He was brought in to set up and help manage a large video and audio production. He and his people proved to be very reliable, creative and effective and producing a quality end result. Through the years he has continued to grow in skills and effectiveness. I highly recommend him for any of your TV or audio production needs! Rod Hall CEO Totally Marketing

We were in need of a videographer to film a luncheon at the end of the week. Jermaine Mendoza was able to film with such short notice and was able to provide a professional video with a very quick turnaround. He was professional from beginning to end, and I look forward to using his company in the future. Highly recommended!

I attended a video pop-up and did my first ever video for my business. I was super nervous, but I was quickly at ease with the wonderful, easy-going energy created by Angie from LifeCapsule Productions. She made me laugh a lot, and we had fun, all the while capturing video takes that led to a really amazing end result. I could not be more pleased with my video and I get a TON of compliments on it. I am eternally grateful to LifeCapsule Productions for helping over this hurdle and exceeding every expectation!!

If I could give Cole 100 stars I would! He was absolutely incredible, he had the BEST attitude and the video was seriously better than I could’ve ever imagined. I told him to do his thing and run with it. He is majorly artistic and he got the video to me 4 days later, I’ve watched it about 20 times in 2 days and have shown everyone! You will NOT regret hiring Cole, you will regret not hiring him 🙂

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.
