Funny thing, I was inquiring about wedding photography and decided to use Mindy for my daughters photoshoot. My daughter models and needed updated photos for her agency. Mindy responded very quickly, has a nice space studio, and is very patient. I definitely will be working with her soon. She has very affordable rates and does quality work. It's worth your investment.

Garrett is absolutely wonderful to work with! One of my main concerns as a bride was to find a trustworthy and reliable vendor and he met every one of my concerns! Garrett offered creative ideas and was open to my ideas and incorporating them into the video. He is very reasonably priced and really impressed me with his ideas, sincerity and reliability. I haven't seen the finished product yet, but I'm sure Garrett will do an amazing job. I highly recommend him if you are looking for a wedding videographer!!!

If you are looking for the best DJ who really knows how to put on a good event this is the company. Josh was the DJ at our wedding and he really put on a good show. I still hear people talking about that wedding dance. Josh does great work and is very professional. If you hire them I personally guarantee a good time will be had by all!!

Sheila has done many photography shoots for me personally and professionally for the organization I work for. She is AMAZING at capturing the essence of who we are with little to no direction, which is very important when we are super busy during events. I would definitely recommend her for a variety of different media: fashion, events, weddings, portraits, and more!

Fuzion Videos did an awesome job recording and editing video for my wedding. They were very professional and walked me through what would happen. The end result was more than satisfying. The highlight video and the wedding video was well done and worth the money spent. I am very thankful for Fuzion Videos and the job that they did. I would highly recommend them to anyone who is looking to have video work done.

About

I provide magazine quality images in both high and low resolution in an instant download link once the images are processed. Also, you will get a password protected online gallery that will be live for as long as I have my website, so far I have had for for 7 years. DVDS available on request. As a former model, I will guide you through posing. Most of the people you will see on my website have never been photographed before. I also give you a large amount of pictures, some professionals only give 1-10; I usually give over triple that, and they are quality stand alone pictures. I have been fortunate to have learned from some of the best photographers and graphic artists that are contracted with major magazines. While I am a fitness photographer now, I began as a more diverse glamour/boudoir, portrait, pet, and wedding photographer so I am experienced in most facets of photography. I have even performed commercial and architectural clients such as CVS and Stormsmart.

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.
