Reid did an outstanding job filming and producing a video of our product launch event. We are an early-stage tech company in Seattle called HurryOut. We hired Reid to record scenes from the party that we could share with our fans. Not only did Reid capture the spirit of the event and of our brand; he also took the initiative to interview early users of the app. The highlights video was delivered in record time, and was just perfect. You can see it on his portfolio and on the HurryOut YouTube channel. We look forward to working with Reid and Best Made Videos in the future.

I had a great experience working with Dan from Motio Media. He was very professional and accommodating. The communication was great, via e-mail and phone. Dan came on time for our event, did not need a lot of assistance. I just had to explain what I want out of the recording (it was about filming a theater performance in foreign language) and he took it from there. I requested a digital copy for Youtube upload and Dan sent it to me in the next 12 hours after the play ended! Additionally I requested several Blu ray DVD copies and Dan was very quick with that too and flexible meeting me when and where was convenient for me. Thank you Dan! It was great working with you and we will keep you in mind for our next performance! Nevena

Greg was very accommodating, flexible and captured all the moments we were looking for. Greg filmed my dads funeral service and the outcome of the video was incredible! He is very easy to work with, very nice and took the initiative to create a well done video for my family and I. The video is also available to view on my phone, which is my favorite because I can watch it anytime when I am missing my dad (which is everyday.) I highly recommend Greg to film your next event!

We have gone to Ford Video in the past and recently returned to them for a quick turn around editing project. Susy was helpful, professional, a great communicator and helped us edit our video in no time. The video was for our wedding reception and we were extremely happy with the results. When we showed the video at our reception, our guests loved it! We couldn't have done it without Ford Video and we plan to use them again for upcoming projects. I have been recommending Ford Video to friends and family who might need their services in the future.

The StoryMakers provided video services for our recent wedding vow renewal ceremony. They were affordable, worked with us to understand what we were looking for, were subtle/seamless during our event, and quickly provided a finished video to us. We're happy that now we have a video to remember the key moments of our event and to share with family and friends!

Milad is one of the most enthusiastic photographers I've ever worked with. He patiently listened to my ideas of taking photos from different angles while I was holding my guitar and my fluffy cat at the same time! Then, he sat with me and helped me to choose the best shot. He offered me quite a few choices of each picture after editing and retouching my photos. I'll definitely call him again for my future video recordings and jam sessions! He's a cool guy.

Ian was a videographer for the Sofar Sounds Harrisonburg mini concert series that I directed. Ian and his team did an excellent job not only fullfilling their expected role, but going above and beyond expectations. Our team had little knowledge of video production and Ian was able to execute our vision by producing multiple videos that captured the intimate live music experience we wanted to portray. Ian was communicative, creative, and overall an excellent addition to our team.

Where do I start... all over there is no one that could have provided better services!! Photography - showed up early helped bridal party unload car. Caught the best mother daughter image I could ask for. Upon showing up to the grooms gathering Ronnie helped the groom and father of groom with bow ties. Talk about extra touch! Made me emotional when my now husband told me. DJ- Jake played everything and just the way I wanted it. Even accommodating my last minute request for first dance. Video footage - PERFECT! I've watched it many many times and cry everytime. It blows me away how amazing it is. Thank you so much for being a part of our day! Our guests loved you and most importantly we loved you!

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!

Andrew is INCREDIBLE! My fiancé & I hired him for our engagement photos- we were visiting in Seattle and he took the time to show us the best locations in the area and made us feel so comfortable. It was seriously just like being on a date, but with a photographer! The images he gave us are beautiful, they captured our love perfectly and we'll cherish them forever. Our shoot was just a couple days ago and we already have all of our images- so punctual, friendly...couldn't have been a better experience. Thank you Andrew!

Kendall was an absolute dream to work with for our wedding day. The rapport she had with every friend and family member was incredible! She was professional, funny, and made everyone feel like rockstars/totally at ease in front of the camera. This all would have been amazing stand-alone, but on top of being so great to work with the quality and feel of her photos were stunning and better than we could have imagined. My whole family marveled at the way she captured little moments throughout the day. We so treasure the photos she took and treasure the bonus friendship that came out of the day!

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.
