Look, nobody expects to hire a wedding vendor and end up with a friend...but that's exactly what happened from the day we booked IrishScott Productions. Scott took the time to get to know us as a couple, and because of that our videos were off-the-charts personal and perfect. Scott and Brandon shot a "love story" to show at our wedding reception, and it was the biggest compliment we got on the entire event. People who didn't know us as a couple knew us after they watched that. Scott, Scott, and Jesse put in a MARATHON day on our wedding day, capturing all the best moments while somehow managing to stay out of sight. When I finished getting my hair/makeup done and needed to make the walk to our venue, Scott was the one that texted my fiance to make sure he wasn't looking, and Scott was the one to walk me over. Seriously, what videographer does that??? The video of our wedding was done in a flash, and we were provided updates and teasers every step of the way. Now we have a keepsake that we can treasure forever. I am so beyond grateful that we hired IrishScott Productions! Their prices were extremely reasonable, and you get so much more than you pay for. Thank you Scott, Brandon, Scott, and Jesse! Love Story Link: https://youtu.be/RpKzJx37DJI Wedding Video Link: https://youtu.be/_r4_EqGGSKo

My husband and I loved working with Jim. He was more than willing to incorporate everything we wanted in our wedding day. Our friends and family loved his DJ service and had a blast in the photobooth. The wedding video was so thoughtful, and captured moments I didn't remember happening. I would highly recommend each and every one of his services.

As the sister/sister in-law of the videographers, I had no expectations for our wedding video as I was simply grateful that they were going to be apart of our big day and help us capture some lovely memories. Well to put it simply, there work left us speechless and in awe of the wonderful magic they created in our 9 minute film. Not only did they capture our day perfectly, but they told our story that truly reflected our personalities, our values, and of course our love. Mike and I were left in tears and honestly did not know how to respond to the art they so genuinely created for us. From the speeches to the music, it was all so perfect and we are forever thankful that we have this to re-live our day and share with others who were unable to be present. We were so blessed to have them and could not recommend a better videographer team to work with!

As a Bride-to-Be, it is always reassuring when you get to witness your vendors at work. My groom and I will have Yo Yo Foto photo booth at our wedding in December and we were graciously invited to attend a friend’s wedding in June where Yo Yo Foto was in action. The amount and condition of the supplies that are offered is amazing and endless. There is literally something for everyone to let loose and have some fun with. The pictures are printed shortly after the photos are taken and the quality is excellent. Yo Yo Foto is easy and fun to work with. They are dedicated to their job and the level of excellence goes above and beyond. I can’t wait to see our scrapbook of photo booth pictures from our wedding in December!! And after seeing some of the posts on Facebook from Yo Yo Foto, are guests can’t wait either. ~Stefanie Maxwell

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.
