A Review of the 8 Best Videographers in Toronto

Nothing immortalizes a memory better than having a clip you can rewatch over and over again. So, whether it's for your birthday, anniversary, or a corporate gathering, a video is your best token.

If that’s what you need, look no further because we already selected the best videographers in Toronto. Find out how each one made our cut and what sets them apart from the rest.

Top Videographers in Toronto

Here’s what you can expect from our selection - these are companies that cover various events and various video needs. Most of the videography services you’ll find solely focus on weddings, but we wanted to give you broader options with this review.

The firms we chose specialize in both events videography and commercial videography. And while most of them also do wedding videography too, we won’t go much into detail on this particular service as it’s not the only service we seek to put in the spotlight.

Overall, to choose the top videographers in this list, we looked into their portfolio of past works and testimonies from past clients. We also considered competitive pricing and ease of communication from planning to the actual shooting of an event.

The Cost of Hiring Videographers in Toronto

Surprise! – preserving memories comes at a price too! But don’t worry because the total cost won’t be too shocking given the table below, which lets you see how much you’ll need to shell out for this service:

Type of ProductionEstimated Cost
Half-day ( 4 to 6 hours)$500 - $1,000
Full-day (8 to 12 hours)$1,000 - 1,750
Corporate Video$1,000 – $6,000
Product Video$1,000 – $4,000
Events Video (1 hour)$700 – $2,000
Wedding Videography$1,400 $1,600 (Lower-end)

$2,000 - $3,500 (Higher-end)

Note: When we mention commercial videography, certain services actually fall within a spectrum of video production services (e.g. scriptwriting for commercials). 

Videography and video production aren’t exactly the same, but there are certain services where you can’t really divorce them from each other, so we’ll present them as they are. 

Of course, video coverage for corporate events like branch openings and conferences directly falls under videography on its own. These are still events, after all – just in a “corporate” setting.

Customer Reviews

Excellent video production

When I see the video now, I see more and more techniques you used to keep it flowing so smoothly and how you used the music so effectively to focus in on the photos. The fading of each picture in the background behind the one in focus is so cool! It is beyond lovely and has brought such comfort to many family members and friends. Many told me they were in tears of sadness and joy as they viewed it! It is truly a  keepsake and will be enjoyed by others for years to come. What a gift to my two grandchildren. – Carolyn and Ross Mcarthur

Ensures perfection every step of the way

I can’t thank Danny and his team more, he made us feel like we were the most important couple in the world and ensured everything was perfect from the first moment we met him to the delivery of our video. He captured every moment beautifully, making us laugh the entire day and turned it into the most amazing video. I recommend Danny to every single bride or groom looking to feel special, understood and end up with amazing memories captured forever. I wish I could give him 100/5 stars!! You won’t regret choosing his team. – Jessica Jorge

Great experience from beginning to end

I have been working with Brightside Films for the past 3 years and I stand behind their work. All the videographers and photographers are down to earth people that put in 110% effort on every job to producing great work while having fun with their clients. Brightside understands the importance of a good experience onsite and don’t annoy their clients for the sake of getting a shot. The owner/producer, Laura is friendly, flexible and is always working to make sure you have the best experience from start to finish. – Cesar Ghisilieri

Amazing cinematography.

Chris was our wedding videographer in September 2020 and we were so so happy with the final video – it is absolutely beautiful!! His style of capturing small moments and compiling them together into one video is incredible. Love his style and highly recommend if you’re looking for a wedding videographer! – Lauren Sniderman

Great quality for its price.

At first, we were debating on getting a videographer (mainly my now husband), But after talking him into it, we went with Chris primarily because out of all the videographers we reached out to, he had the fastest response. He handled all my questions and weeks before the wedding, he contacted every vendor that was a part of the wedding to make sure it went smooth and effortless. The video ended up being the best thing ever and at such an incredible price! My husband has shown so many people already and we were so thankful that we chose Chris and his services! Alex-Andrea

CONTACT DETAILSVisit their website for direct contact.

If you’re looking for a production company that can help you realize your vision with a comprehensive walk through of the process from beginning to execution, then Small Fish Productions may be the videographer for you.

The first thing we loved about Small Fish Productions is their superb planning solutions. They help you with concept development, storyboarding, and script templates through workshops.

They also help promote your videos on social media platforms and optimize them for viewing on YouTube. Their team can even help you set up your own podcast so you can reach your audience more effectively.

However, there’s a lot of missing information about Small Fish Productions that can make them quite hard to contact. They don’t have a physical address nor a telephone number, and even their operating hours aren’t clear.

But considering the amount and variety of services they offer, we think it’s definitely worth going through the trouble of reaching out to them directly from their website.

Pros

  • Helps with planning and promotion
  • Offers workshop facilitation and training
  • Lots of services available

Cons

  • No physical address, operating hours, or telephone number

Customer Reviews

Always willing to answer questions

I was so impressed at Julian’s ability to explain the steps in the filming and editing process in a simple yet effective way, that I also hired him to train me and my staff on video-editing so we could do some internal projects. He created great training materials for us, which we all still pick up when we have a question. He is also a great go-to person, always willing to answer questions and give advice on our new video projects.” – Shawna Curtis

Professional, enthusiastic, and knowledgeable

“I have worked with Julian on the production of online video learning modules for the ICTC bridge training program, Coach Connect, and have found the products to be of exemplary quality and utility. Based on our interaction, it is clear to see that his work ethic is outstanding. He also served the program as a live presenter, answering questions given to him by the training cohort, who had received his video instruction prior to the session. He was professional, enthusiastic and knowledgeable about his craft. The cohort were very impressed with his presentation and videos.” – Craig Murrell

As the recipient of the 2018 Adobe Design Achievement Award and the Best Art Director Award 2016, the Almond Media studio definitely has what it takes to be named as one of the best videographers in Toronto.

They offer a full-service experience, which means they handle every aspect of their projects, from creative ideas and planning to production and post-production.

You may want to prepare your budget should you choose to work with them though. Their pricing starts at $1,500, and the majority of their projects fall within the $5,000 – $25,000 range, which is pretty expensive.

Although their rates may be expensive, we can guarantee you that it’s worth every single dollar, especially once you’ve seen their works. Check them out on their website!

OPERATING HOURSTuesday - Friday: 10:00 AM - 6:00 PM

Outside In Studio is our best choice for commercial work and related content. Let’s get to know them more so you’ll have an idea of what they can offer.

Starting off with their commercial videography, they’re best for producing videos for brands. Their range of services includes commercials, brand video content, and social content.

What we found them best for are e-commerce content and snackable social media posts.

For instance, they use slow-mo videography to highlight the unboxing of items on e-commerce platforms. 

They can also create a collection of videos for Instagram stories or 30-second Hulu commercials.

Overall, their videography services are best for product showcases to highlight certain features. In fact, one of their posts garnered over 5 million views on TikTok for a client’s showcase.

Like most companies, we also took interest in their wedding videography services. Their approach is a blend of documentary and editorial, with minimal direction to enjoy candid moments.

All their wedding video packages include 12 consecutive hours of coverage. Highlight films can be delivered 4 to 6 weeks after the wedding and the final film can take up to 6 months after your wedding.

Quick and important note – they’re already fully booked for weddings in 2022. So they’re better for couples tying the knot in 2023 and beyond.

Pros

  • Best for commercial videography for brand content
  • Provides snackable video content for social media
  • Proven results for commercial works on social media
  • Minimal direction for weddings videography
  • Faster-than-average turnaround time for final output
  • 12 consecutive hours of coverage for weddings

Cons

  • Fully booked for weddings in 2022
  • Expensive initial investment for weddings starting at $6,900

Customer Reviews

We had the most amazing experience with Beautiful Life Studios

“We had the most amazing experience with Beautiful Life Studios for our wedding photography this past July. Simone was our photographer and she was incredible! The moment we met Simone via video call, we knew we had found our photographer. We had multiple meetings leading up to the big day, where we could express the vibe we were hoping for and those meetings gave us all the confidence that our pictures would be perfect. On our wedding day, Simone was like a member of the family. Everyone was talking about how amazing she was to work with. She was calm, cool and collected, even when we went off schedule. We couldn’t be any happier when we received our sneak peak photos as well as the final collection. Simone captured moments that we didn’t even know happened and throughout the night we barely knew she was even there! The pictures are beyond beautiful. Thank you Beautiful Life Studios and Simone for providing us with the most gorgeous memories of our special day.” – Amanda Hassan

Beautiful Life Studios was wonderful to work with.

“Beautiful Life Studios was wonderful to work with. The team responds quickly to any inquires and sets you up with a photographer who works along side you throughout the process. My husband and I were lucky to work with Nancy. She is incredibly talented. She knows a vision when she sees it! She offered suggestions for picture ideas and she captured so many beautiful moments throughout the wedding! We are over the moon about our pictures AND we received them in less than a week! It was a wonderful surprise when we returned from our honeymoon. Thank you, Nancy. You’re awesome 🙂 All the best.”  – Danielle Tassone
