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!

I was very skeptical about spending the money on a videographer for our wedding. I am so glad I found Dan at Dude Oyster Productions. He was wonderful!!!! He was there to capture every important moment but he always seemed to be in the background, not overtaking the wedding :) The DVD is absolutely wonderful! He seemed to capture every little detail, from the ceremony to the reception. The detail that went into this DVD is priceless! If you are debating spending the extra money on a videographer, call Dan. It is an awesome investment and can never be replaced. I am 200% satisfied with the finished product!

We hired Jeff last second for our wedding because we weren’t sure we could afford a videographer and I’m so glad we did! The video was more than we expected! I can’t wait to share it with friends and family. It’s something my husband and i will get to watch forever. Jeff did a truly amazing job at a very reasonable price. He even came to our rehearsal. I’m so glad we chose Jeff and would definitely recommend him! Thank you Jeff!!

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.

Carlton was hired to film at a place of business to capture a testimonial for our client. Carlton was available to discuss the project before hand and was very prompt with providing us with the raw footage once the shoot was completed. We are happy with the footage he provided, he followed our instructions very well and met our needs. Hopefully we are able to hire him again in the future.

Sam Kirchoff is an excellent idea-to-product videographer! He handles the video/audio of my live public events, and creates a publishable 3 minute narrative video summary for documentation and grant-writing purposes. He is punctual, communicative, professional, and knowledgeable. He has an assistant pool to draw from when my projects are larger. He has a great eye for both shooting and editing. I've been working with Sam Kirchoff Videography for about three years, and I highly recommend him.

    My husband and I are so happy we chose Badger Creative as our wedding videographer! Josh was enthusiastic, easy to work with and professional.

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!

      My company often hires Chris for his expertise as a videographer but we get so much more than that. Chris brings an energy to productions that inspires creativeness and puts the client at ease. His brand of readiness and professionalism always makes Chris Huegel Media, Inc. the first person I call when I need help with a project. For standout videography; lighting and sound I definitely recommend Chris Huegel Media, Inc.

      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.
