I hired Motio Media for the video coverage of my daughter's 18th Birthday Debut Party. My family and friends are all convinced that the video coverage is excellent. We like how the video is edited as well as the background music that comes with it. It's also been a pleasure to work with Dan. If I ever need video coverage for future occasions, I'd definitely go with Motio Media again.

Our experience having Jaclynn photograph our wedding was beyond EXCELLENT! From the initial online message exchanges on Thumbtack to all the way till the final photo galleries came out, Jaclynn has been extremely friendly, hardworking and passionate with what she does! She went above and beyond for all our photography needs, and gave us her full attention, time and care throughout. 1. Her price point by far was the most cost effective from all the quotes we received through thumbtack. On top of that, she included extra's like photo album, canvas prints, and a complimentary additional day for an outdoor photo session! 2. She reserved her services for us for the complete wedding day! She accompanied us to our salon to photograph candid getting-ready shots, and accompanied us all day getting photographs at all the different locations (Salon, Downtown Bellevue, Elliot Bay Marina Seattle) 3. She also had another awesome photographer accompany her to capture our wedding, that she was training. We had two photographers taking pictures from multiple angles throughout! 4. She met us a few days before the wedding for finalizing all the details. She was very friendly, and genuinely cares for her clients, and gave us her full time and attention! 5. She was very friendly with all the guests at the wedding, and immediately got along with everyone she photographed! It was great to have her around! 6. Her turnaround time for the final photos was very good. The online delivery method was perfect, with all the photos conveniently accessible and downloadable through her online portal. 7. She is very passionate about what she does and FULLY strives to make her clients happy! 8. Ours was a traditional Pakistani wedding, which you don't have many of in the US. Still Jaclynn fully understood how the wedding needed to be captured and did a truly impressive job! Me, my wife and all our guests fully recommend Jaclynn for all your photography needs!

Greg has worked with us at Seafair for many years (a summer festival with over 75 events reaching nearly 2 million people). He is by far and away the best photographer/videographer I have ever worked with. Greg is truly an artist - his eye for detail is impeccable and I am also amazed to see how he tells the story of our events through his lens and video camera. He just captures the essence of what we stand for and our philosophy. Not only is his work incredible, but you will not find someone who is a bigger team player, who exudes more passion and who is just an overall pleasure to be around. Sometimes in life you come across people who just "have it" - who are uber talented, who make magic happen. That is Greg.

John is by far one of the best photographers we've worked with—we hire photographers in 12 cities for corporate events we produce. He arrived early, took all the shots on our shot list, and is just a friendly guy. His work is just as great—the composition, color, and style. It's not easy to find a corporate photographer whose work and professionalism are of high-quality. Duffernutter Photography is our top pick for Seattle photography—and it should be yours too!

The lovely ladies that videotaped and photographer our event were wonderful to work with. I can hardly wait to see the video and pictures! Susy made sure that she captured this important moment just the way I wanted it and made it possible for those were unable to make it to the ceremony to be a part of the day by videotaping the letters we read and making the day extra special. So thankful to have found this company.

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.

My husband and I hired Tsp Video to video our daughter's wedding in August of 2013. Edward and his crew were great to work with! They were on time to a wedding that was an hour away on a day when I-405 was closed! They were friendly and efficient. We received a "video montage" of the wedding and a full video that contained all the main content of the wedding. Both were beautiful and artistic. My daughter had a very particular style in mind for her video and Edward was very easy to work with to adjust the video to make it exactly how she wanted it. She never felt like she was asking too much. In summary, the people, service, product and price were excellent and I would definitely recommend Tsp Video.

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.

A few months ago our life was about to change forever. We got engaged and had to plan a large wedding in only 6 months!! So the planning began, and the one thing my husband and I said was the most important was our pictures. We weren't just going to let anyone do them, so we truly took the time to find the right person. We finally found Cody, and I must say we got blessed with not only the best photographer but a phenomenal person. We had an outdoor country chic wedding, I don't know if that is a style but that's what I called it ;) and he captured our style and theme perfectly. From the minute we got ready until the celebration was over Cody made sure to get every little detail. He is by far the nicest person we have ever worked with. You can tell he has a passion for what he does and his work shows that. I can't thank Cody enough for making us feel so special that day and for capturing our love story. I can tell you right now if you are looking for a photographer go with Cody Pyane!!

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!

Amora Cinema filmed our engagement and wedding video and both films turned out absolutely beautiful. I would have to say that choosing to have a videographer was one of the best investments we made for our wedding. When it came to filming our engagement video, it was so much fun! Rafael and Pauahi made the awkwardness of filming enjoyable and comfortable. We spent an entire evening filming but it simply felt like spending time with great friends and just hanging out. They both have a great gift with making their clients feel at ease around the camera and it was unreal to see the outcome of the engagement video. Once our wedding day rolled around, it was nice that we had filmed the engagement video because it took some tension off of being filmed since we knew what to expect. Even though we were being filmed pretty much the entire day, Rafael and Pauahi never made us feel bombarded by being filmed and did a great job being behind the scenes and capturing our wedding day Kodak moments. Rafael had a wonderful idea to play our engagement video during our reception and although I loved the idea, I knew we did not have the extra funds to rent out a projector. Rafael went out of his way to reach out to our reception and ask if they had a projector they could use to show our video and as luck would have it they did! Rafael set up the projector and provided us with one of the absolute best gifts on our wedding day. Not only did he show our beautiful engagement video, he completed a same-day edit of our wedding day! As I looked around the room I could just see the tears rolling from all our friends and family as our engagement video and wedding video unfolded "our story". Rafael did such an unbelievable job at showing our loved ones our love story and incorporating moments with our friends and family on our wedding day in the film.. It was absolutely amazing and I still cannot believe he was able to edit and put together the film in such a short amount of time. We received so many compliments after the video was shown about how beautiful the film was and even more compliments when we shared our video with friends and family that could not attend our wedding. Rafael has definitely found his passion in life and it genuinely shows in his work. I can say without hesitation that our film was one of the highlights of our day and I am so blessed to have worked with such humble individuals that put their all into making our film something we will always remember. My biggest advice to all engaged couples is to set aside a budget for your wedding day to be filmed. Your wedding day is so busy and fast paced it is hard to remember and capture all of those treasured moments, but with a wedding day film you always have the option to relive your wedding day. My now husband was not immediately on board with the idea because we paid for our entire wedding ourselves and it was just another expense to add, but he was so happy with Rafaels service and after he saw the videos he agreed it was one of the best investments we made for the wedding. I highly, highly recommend Amora Cinema for your wedding day videography. Thank you so much Rafael and Pauahi and good luck to your bright future together!

Working with Note was a fantastic experience. My fiancé and I are were very particular about how we wanted our wedding ceremony filmed, especially because we had a large number of guests (250+) in a tight venue. We really appreciated the fact that Note and his team were willing to sit down with us on multiple occasions to discuss our preferences and how our values could be integrated into the video. While I liked what they had to offer at our initial meeting, what really impressed me was their professionalism at the wedding itself. Note and his team coordinated with our event planner and photographer to ensure that they could get all the footage they needed without being intrusive. One of my close friends even asked me who I had hired for the video afterwards, and I was more than happy to refer him to LFF. Although my fiancé and I haven't received the final copy of our wedding video, we are happy to wait because the trailer they showed us was absolutely gorgeous. I appreciate that these guys take their time to deliver quality footage.

    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.  
    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
