5 Best Videographers in Winnipeg

We live in a world that is heavily dependent on videos. Whether it’s for entertainment, education, or business, video production has become an indispensable part of our lives.

People who are looking to immortalize a special event or maybe show off their products or services are turning to videographers for help. And since you’re reading this, you probably need one too!

Don’t worry! We’ve got your back.

But before we tell you our top choices of videographers in Winnipeg, you might want to check out how much videography services are going to cost.

How much do video services cost?

Video production companies offer different packages to their clients. Usually, this depends on what the package entails, the equipment used, and several other factors we mention below.

So keep in mind that this list only shows you a general idea of the average cost for each item.

Wedding Videos/Film Package$3,000 - $15,000
Corporate Videos (1½ minutes)$1,000 – $5,000
Product video (1½ minutes)$1,000 – $4,000
Event Video (60 minutes)$800 – $3,000

Hourly/Daily Videography Services Rate

Hourly rates50$ to 500$/h
Half-Day (5 hours)250$ to $2500
Full-Day (10 hours)$800 to $8000
Video Editing$70/h to $200/h
Motion Graphics$200 to $2000/day
3D Animation$200 to $2500/day

Other Factors Involved in Videography

Stock Footage and Music$75 to $350/each
Original Music$300 to $2500/each
Talents/Actors$200 to $3000/day
Use of Top-tier Camera (RED, ARRI, etc.)$2000/day
Use of Second Tier Camera (High-end DSLR, Blackmagic)$150 to $300/day
Make-up Artists$200 to $500/day
Travel Cost$100 to $5000

Factors Affecting the Pricing

  1. Equipment used. The better the gear is, the more expensive the services become as well.
  1. Resolution and video quality. Higher quality videos are much more appealing, of course. But it also comes at a higher price.
  1. Filming sites. Some sites may require a little payment to use. The distance and accessibility of the site also contribute to your total expenses. 
  1. Length of video and editing. Longer videos require more editing time. And the longer the editing time is, the more you have to pay for editing services.
  1. Length of filming. If you’re filming for more than a day, then expect a more costly fee.
  1. Distribution and tracking. If you’re only planning to post your video on social media, then you may not need to worry about this. On the other hand, if you want to showcase this on a tv commercial, events, and other advertising platforms, then that’s a whole other story.
  1. Staff involved. If you want to save on expenses, it’s best to have lesser people involved in the process.

Best Videographers in Winnipeg

Now that you know how much videography services may take out of your pocket, here are the criteria we used to determine and rate our top picks.

Turnaround times. People want to see the result of their hired videographer’s work after a reasonable amount of time. And when it’s tied to a special occasion, the sooner, the better. With that in mind, we rated the companies on this list based on how fast they can finish their client’s projects without compromising quality, of course.
Service scope. One of the most common reasons to seek a videographer is to immortalize a special event. And yes, it’s usually a wedding. But since there are plenty of other reasons to seek out videography services, we feel it necessary to list companies who offer other services besides covering weddings.
Expertise. Some events only happen once in a lifetime. So to make sure that you are in safe hands, we only listed companies with over 5 years of experience in the industry. Expertise also covers how extensive its portfolio is. After all, the more samples we see from its previous projects, the better we can decide.
Customer feedback. It’s hard to work with a company that has a bad reputation. That’s why we only added videography services with great customer feedback.

JAG Videos and Photography is an award-winning wedding, commercial and real estate videographer that has been in the industry for more than 5 years.

In fact, the company has made great strides in wedding videography and has been a recipient of the Wedding Industry Experts Awards in 2016.

Other than its highly-sought photography and wedding videography services, JAG is also known for its engagement videos. So if you want your pre-wedding love story showcased during the reception, this is the service for you.   

While JAG is clearly an expert wedding videographer, it also offers other video services for its customers. 

JAG can work with you to make commercial videos, brand videos, training videos, testimonial videos, web videos, and even TV commercials. This is perfect if you want a video for marketing and brand awareness.

Are you a sales agent looking to make a video to sell your listings? You’re in luck! 

JAG can create real estate videos for you for as low as $150. And other than its competitive price, what we like the most is that it can be filmed, edited, and delivered on the same day.

On the other hand, if you want a video that commemorates your Bar or Bat Mitzvah, JAG has a customizable package to suit your preference.

You can opt for a simple 3-4 highlight video or have the entire ceremony and party covered. 

JAG can also work with talented musicians to create a kick-ass music video. As a matter of fact, 3 of its music videos have been on the mix on Europe’s MTV!

We also love the fact that the fees for its video services are posted on its website so there are no surprises there. JAG can even create a customizable plan that works on your budget.

However, JAG is a one-man show. And though Jeff, the man behind the camera, is skilled in all things photo and video, this affects the company’s turnaround times and availability on certain dates.

All things told, JAG Videos and Photography is a highly-rated photography and videography service that is definitely worth checking out. 

Pros

  • Wide scope of videography services
  • Competitive pricing
  • Extensive portfolio

Cons

  • Ran by only one man
  • Unavailability on booked dates

Customer Reviews

Amazing service

Jeff is a man of talent when it comes to videography and photography. The first shoot I ever had and he made me feel very comfortable! You will have an amazing time working with him. – Suzanne Davies, Google Reviews

Very skilled and talented

Jeff did a video for my business recently, and as amazing as I knew he was, I was still blown away when I saw the final results.  It was exactly what I was wanting and more.  On top of being a talented videographer & photographer, he took the time to listen to what I wanted, and gave great suggestions to make the end result even greater.

Thanks again, Jeff! – Réjean Brandt

Prairie Film Co. is owned and operated by a sweet couple, Lauren and Jordan, who lives in Winnipeg, Manitoba. But they aren’t just sweet, they’re completely serious about filming!

We love that the company has a complete set of gear for all your video needs. It packs the Sony A7sii, Sony A6500, Go Pro Hero 7 Black, Manfrotto Tripods and Monopods, Zhiyun Tech stabilizers, DJI Drones, and Rode Microphones, just to name a few.

Prairie Film has a pretty rich industry history as well. It has worked on projects for the University of Manitoba, the Liberal Party of Canada, Ford Canada, World Vision, and more.

Although the company can work on various corporate, commercial, and other promotional videos, it specializes in and prides itself in being a wedding videographer.

Prairie Film’s wedding package starts at only $3,000. And though that’s a reasonable price for the service, we feel that its retainer fee may be a little too pricy.

Booking and reserving the company for your wedding date will cost you an initial payment of $1000. And once it’s paid, it’s no longer refundable, so think twice before booking.

However, if you like its modern, professional, and cinematographic style of videography, call Prairie any time of the day. It’s open 24/7 to serve you and has been for more than 5 years.

Pros

  • Highly-reviewed services
  • 24-hour availability
  • Complete videography gear

Cons

  • Specializes in small to mid-size companies only
  • High and non-refundable retainer fee.
  • Limited non-wedding videography portfolio

Customer Reviews

Highly recommended

Lauren & Jordan do a phenomenal job with their videography. Very professional, hard-working individuals. Would recommend them to anyone looking to capture beautiful memories! Best in Manitoba! – Karim Asham, Google Reviews

Very personal service

Prairie Film Co, in my opinion, is a boutique videography service. The reason being is the work they do feels tailored to each individual couple. The videos they create have incredible attention to detail, they truly deliver a high-end product with stunning cinematography that will immortalize your special day. Almost as important they are great people to be around bringing positive vibes for days! With Jordan and Lauren, you get honest hard-working people, who are fun to be around and deliver beautiful tear-jerking work. – Alex Dolyniuk, Google Reviews

JP Media Works Inc was founded and operated by Jordan Popowich in 2013. With its 8 years of experience and extensive career portfolio, the company has clearly made its mark in the industry.

Speaking of marks, the Canadian Wedding Industry Awards has given it the Best Wedding Videographer award in 2014.

This is not surprising at all since JP Media Works has covered more than 100 weddings since its existence. But that’s not all.

The company is also awarded as one of the best businesses in Canada by the Canada Business Review Board. We like how these accolades add to the credibility and reliability of its service.

Clearly, JP Media Works is a veteran in wedding videography. But that’s not all it brings to the table.

The company also specializes in documentaries and commercials. In fact, it has worked on several commercial projects with Travel Manitoba and Skip the Dishes, and is currently working on a documentary about Rwanda.

We also love how the company is able to work with filmmakers. So whether you’re doing a feature film, short film, web series, or music video, JP’s cinematography and editing skills will surely come in handy.

Although Jordan works and collaborates with others, he seems to be the sole representative of the company. This often makes it hard to get in touch with him and make a booking, especially on busy days.

We also feel that its fees are a little more pricey compared to others on this list. Its wedding film package starts at $3950 and may even reach a whopping $12,950.

On the upside, its website offers a highly customizable film and photo pricing table. This is especially helpful when you’re working with a budget and don’t want to go overboard.

JP Media Works is a reliable videography company that has garnered awards and praise from all its customers. In fact, we have yet to see a bad review!

Pros

  • Extensive portfolio
  • Customizable pricing
  • 8+ years in the industry

Cons

  • A little more expensive
  • Unavailability during projects

Customer Reviews

Quick turnaround time

I had such a great experience working with Jordan to get headshots taken for my art portfolio! He was an absolute pleasure to work with and his attention to detail provided me with exactly the photos I was after! The shoot was professional and efficient and he was able to capture my personality and essence in every photo! He made the experience extremely enjoyable and maintained a fun and relaxed atmosphere!

Jordan went out of his way to provide an extremely quick turnaround on the photographs, allowing me to meet a very strict time constraint! The process from start to finish was absolutely seamless, and I would highly recommend JP Media Works for all of your photography needs! Thanks again Jordan!!! – Tanisha Salakoh, Google Reviews

Amazing dedication

I am a filmmaker, and JP Media Works (Jordan Popowich) is my ‘go to’ for all of my films. Not only is he a phenomenal cinematographer, but he is also an incredible human being. We have worked together on a few short films and are currently working on a feature documentary in Rwanda.

He is reliable, a great team player, easy to work with, and super dedicated to his craft. I can’t actually imagine working with anyone else now that I have had the opportunity to work with Jordan – I basically plan my shoots around his availability.Oh, and he doesn’t just shoot, he also edits. Basically he is amazing at everything he puts his creative energy into. – Julie Epp, Google Reviews

With more than 20 years in the industry, Brannek Video Production the longest-running videography service on this list.

Since opening its doors in 1998, it has become one of the leading live-event videographers in Winnipeg. It is sought out to cover weddings, recitals, concerts, and theatres.

Brannek also offers to stream, download, and provide disc copies of the event. So even if you have relatives who can’t make it to the actual event, they’d still be able to see it in real-time.

We also like that you can still view your kid’s recital on the company’s website. You just have to log in using the password provided in your package and you’re good to go.

But Brannek is more than just a videographer for live events. It also works with other companies in creating ads or promotional videos for their services, products, or brand.

And if you have any custom projects in mind, such as lecture videos, music videos, or even a simple student project, Brannek offers you its services.

What makes this company stand out from the previous videographers mentioned is that it is also experienced in filming depositions, De Bene Esse examinations, and courtroom proceedings.

So if you’re looking for such service for your Canadian or even US law firm, look no further. You can avail of Branneks’ services for only $100 an hour.

While we’re on the subject of prices, we like that its prices are the most competitive and probably cheapest on this list. In fact, its wedding package goes as low as $500 only and maxes at $2495.

However, we have to say that Brannek’s editing style is more traditional than modern. Its use of minimal filters and effects may not suit your new-generation palate for flair and glam.

All in all, Brannek Video Production’s reliability and extremely affordable prices make it a strong contender on this list.

Pros

  • 20+ years of experience
  • Downloading and streaming option
  • Extremely affordable fees

Cons

  • Traditional editing style
  • Limited commercial portfolio

Customer Reviews

Very accomodating

We got married in Sept 2021 and won Brannek videos services from the wedding show. Joey was wonderful to work with and very accommodating with all the changes with covid. Our video was perfect and everything we could have asked for! Highly recommend Brannek Video! – Marianne Campos, Google Reviews

Excellent result

Brannek Video produced a video ad for our product.  Scheduling, communicating and working with Joey could not have been easier.  He was exceptionally accommodating in a sometimes chaotic shooting location full of children.  The end product is professional and an excellent representation of our marketing strategy. Joey provided professional feedback and suggestions throughout the editing process and included our requests for changes thoughtfully in the final product.  Turnaround time was quick.  Very, very satisfied! – Rebecca Chambers, Google Reviews

Aspen Films may only have over 10 years of experience, but make no mistake. It’s nothing less than an industry giant. 

The company operates in Victoria, Kelowna, Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary, Prince Albert, Saskatoon, Regina, Winnipeg, Toronto, Ottawa, and Halifax. Basically, all across Canada.

Aspen has a plethora of video services but these can be divided into two categories. The first is videography and the second is organizing virtual events.

Aspen is an expert in filming, editing, drone footage, animation, voiceover, audio, post-production, and photography. Its videography services include promotional videos, interview-style videos, documentaries, and even TV commercials. 

We like how diverse its clients’ industries are as well. Some come from real estate, legal, and government organizations while others hail from educational, medical, and agricultural associations.

So whether you are representing a small or large organization, don’t worry. Aspen Films is open to cater to all your video production needs.

However, what really piques our interest is its second category of services — virtual event production.

Aspen Films has organized and facilitated virtual events such as conferences and awards events. It offers interactive online events and professional-grade live streaming services to companies that need them.

So if you’re looking for someone to host your company’s next virtual event with quality and style, you know who to call.

However, we noticed that Aspen Film’s services are more business-oriented than personal. It means that it doesn’t cover non-professional occasions such as weddings, bar or bat mitzvahs, and recitals.

Also, not being able to see its price range on its website as others have is quite the letdown. After all, not everyone wants the added effort of calling and asking for a quote.

Still, Aspen Films’ wide array of videography and virtual event services and its positively-reviewed customer service have earned it a spot on this list.

Pros

  • Extensive portfolio in various industries
  • Over 10+ years of experience
  • Operation all over Canada

Cons

  • Business-oriented services
  • No browsing option for prices

Customer Reviews

Outstanding customer service

What gives this company the right to have such good customer service? And who does their dental work? What bright smiles! What gregarious attitudes! What a company! And let me tell you, that Caleb Smith… he’s going places. The man is a true Titan, a baller, a shot caller, of the customer service industry! Shine on! – Michael Fyfe, Google Reviews
