Where do I begin - well, let's just say that all my groomsmen and all of the bridesmaids that have yet to get married swore that they will be using Velvet Oaks for their weddings. The only problem will be booking them in time because of how great they are. Joe and the rest of his team are true professionals with amazing vision. Being the groom, I had enough to think about and didn't even think to worry about the videographers - luckily, I had the best ones around. From the start of our special day until the very end, we had a camera man following use to capture every moment we wanted captured. When we saw the trailer of our wedding video (I recommend you pay for it - well worth it), my wife and I were floored. We couldn't wait for the full video - when we saw the full video, we forgot how much took place and some stuff we didn't even get to see. Luckily it was beautifully captured. If you really need to, look around first and then chat with Velvet Oaks - but you'll be wasting your time talking to others as you will end up booking these guys. A+

I hired Garret as a videographer for a conference I run. In line with his promptness and responsiveness, he answered my ad immediately and then called me the same day to gather as much information about the event before the day of. Garret showed up early to our conference to make time to speak with myself and our performer for last minute details concerning the performance and it's recording. He was flexible and professional and easily maneuvered the cultural nuances of our international conference. I would gladly and swiftly hire Garret again for videographer needs for work and appreciate his constant communication and work ethic that I as an organizer can count on without a second thought!

My wife and I had the pleasure of having Stuart as our videographer for our wedding. The video could not have turned out better. He captures every great moment and it really makes you feel like you are there living it all over again. The quality and functionality are both fantastic as well. We can't thank Stuart enough for giving us something that will help us relive our special day forever!

I've worked with Video Taping Perfectionists (VTP) many times and on several projects, for the government, my business, and family. Mario Sanders is truly a perfectionist!!! He arrives on time, is completely prepared, and hard working. He is a talented photographer, and editing master, who captures not only the footage, but the essence of your message. I would highly recommend VTP for any video opportunities.

Drake did an awesome job videotaping my daughter's wedding ceremony last weekend. He actually arrived almost an hour early to tape everyone arriving at the church, and stayed late to tape family and wedding party photos being taken. We now have priceless memories! We will highly recommend Drake to everyone we know who is looking for a professional, reliable and reasonably priced videographer. Thank you again, Drake!

They are the absolute best! We had originally hired a videographer for our daughter's wedding through a third-party that arranged it (one of their friends I assume), and that person cancelled a few days before asking for more money to do it (three times the original price) as they said they had another job that paid more! We didn't reserve a year in advance to get a bait and switch, so we said no and called a dozen companies. Erin at vidart answered, said they could do it last minute to replace the person we originally hired, and then not one, but two videographers showed up an hour before they were supposed to be there, talked with everyone about the shots they wanted, and they just did a wonderful job. They also included a free virtual reality camera we were able to set up for vows, dances, and so on, it was tiny on a camera thing but no one even realized it was there, but my son-in-law is now showing everyone that couldn't make the wedding the wedding through some thing he uses with his phone but it is very cool as when you put it on, it is like you are actually there, looking around the room, and my daughter was so happy about it as it recorded the night as a living memory! The wedding turned out perfect too, and thank you vidart for showing up at the last minute to replace the person we hired. You did a great job and although I don't have any more daughters getting married, will recommend you to friends that do. Thanks again!

Steve did an amazing job at our wedding May 2015! From the very start to the end of the process he was professional, punctual, and genuine. We honestly could not have asked for a better experience. It is hard to put something so special, like your wedding, in the hands of someone else to capture but I highly recommend Steve! We have a video that we can now cherish for a lifetime and recap on the most important day of our lives! Thank you again Steve for going above and beyond!!!! Chelsea and Jeremy

Justin recently videographed our wedding and we are absolutely in LOVE with our highlight video along with our entire wedding video including getting ready, ceremony, and dancing until the end of the night. Justin was so easy to work with, and provides amazing results. We received so many complements, especially on our highlight video that many of our friends mention hiring him for their upcoming nuptials. We were so grateful we decided to get a videographer, especially since it captured moments we weren't able to see day of (bridal party and flower girl walking down the aisle). So grateful we will be able to cherish these moments together and re watching the best day of our lives through Justin's amazing work.

    My husband and I are so happy we chose Badger Creative as our wedding videographer! Josh was enthusiastic, easy to work with and professional. We love our wedding video and are so excited to be able to relive our wedding day through watching it in the years to come. Our video captures all of the special and important moments of our day. It is creatively edited and well shot. I love everything about it from the lighting to the wonderful montage of shots summarizing our day at the end. Thank you Badger Creative!

    We got photos and video, Steve showed us the work and we got to pick our favorite. I was a little worried we wouldn't get what we paid for at first, since my brother spent twice as much for his photographer and videographer, but I honestly liked our photos & video way better. We got everything faster than what Steve said it would take, so that very cool. Thank you!

    Cariman arrived early to our event in Lake Zurich so she could set up and discuss what we wanted. She was very polite and professional and captured everything we wanted at this event. She ended up staying with us for 7 hours, which was much longer than anticipated. I would highly recommend Cariman to videotape your event. Simply put, she was great.

          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.
