Dan video taped my husband's funeral service on very short notice. He was very personable; The service was an hour. I know he was there at least an hour ahead. The video is great! I will cherish it forever. I can't think of anything that could have been better. Only thing that comes to my mind might be some words from some of the attendees about my husband but don't know if that would be appropriate. I will definitely connect with him as I need some other photo work.

I hired Greg McCorkle of FOTO54 to videotape a kindergarten teacher demonstrating how to implement a math instructional strategy. The video will be used as teaching tool for teachers across the school district. I work for a regional school district in an administrative capacity and hired Greg to video and edit the footage of the teacher demonstrating a mini lesson, assessing students engaged in the instructional strategy and an interview of the teacher explaining how she plans and executes the instructional strategy. Greg was very flexible in meeting with the teacher and myself prior to the video taping to discuss how we envisioned the teaching video and in scheduling our editing sessions. I am extremely satisfied with the final video product and am proud to post the video on our school district website as an instructional resource for our teachers. I am planning on hiring Greg to film teachers demonstrating instructional strategies in a variety of grade levels in the near future.

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!

Kristy with EmotePro Video is amazing! I can't recommend her highly enough. She's a total professional. I had some ideas of what I wanted for my promo video and she helped bring them all together. My favorite part was the turn around time. Super fast, very affordable and very easy to work with. The response from my video has been amazing. Proof that the power is in video. So far I've gotten two new bookings in the first couple hours of sharing it. I will definitely be using EmotePro Video in the future!

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.

I had the opportunity to work with Daniel on two video projects for my company. One was editing some existing videos for an educational video series and the other was a maintenance video for one of our instruments. In both cases it was really easy working with Daniel and I really liked the work he did. During the educational video series I communicated with Daniel remotely via email. It was very easy to provide Daniel with content and details regarding what I wanted edited and Daniel was very responsive in getting me fairly quick turn over for ~ 5 minute long videos. Daniel was also really patient as I would watch the video, find something I didn't catch the first time, and ask him to make the corrections. On the second video project, Daniel worked with me in house and we both filmed the maintenance video together. During this time Daniel was very nice, easy to work with, and produced some excellent quality videos. I enjoyed working with Daniel, but really enjoyed his own creative spin on things and I thought made things better than I imagined. For example, I was perfectly satisfied with a logo that faded in and out during our introduction. But he created an animation of our logo that was much my dynamic and really brought a quality to the video that I didn't even think about. Either way, I would highly recommend Daniel for video projects, both remote editing as well as in-person video shooting.

    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.
