Some sights are just too good to remain undocumented. If you’re looking for the best videographers to capture your special moments for events or shoot videos for campaigns, read on.
In this article, we’ve identified our top picks for videographers in Dubai. We also answer common questions like the cost of a videographer’s services, as well as some tips for picking the best videographer for your needs.
How much does hiring a videographer cost in Dubai?
There is no set cost for hiring a videographer because it will depend on a myriad of factors, such as the following:
- Expertise of videographer
- The kind of project
- Complexity of project
- Duration of video needed
- Number of crew members needed (Labor costs)
- Equipment needed
- Other production costs
Still to give you an overview of the prices, here is a ballpark number. For a junior videographer, the typical day rate is 700 AED-1100 AED; for a more experienced one, the rate will be 1800 AED-3600 AED for a day’s work.
Still, these numbers are just guides. It will still primarily depend on your agreement with the production house you’ll choose.
The Top Videographers in Dubai
We assessed the following production houses based on these criteria:
1. Imprint Photo Studio

|+971 50 774 4167

|1.1 Level of experience
|1.2 Production quality
|4. CLIENT SATISFACTION
Imprint Photo Studio was established in 2012, so they’ve been in the industry for almost a decade now. Their level of expertise in videography and crisp video editing has given them a strong reputation as a production house especially for live events like weddings.
Since they started, they have covered over 180 weddings in total. They can handle livestream, photography, videography, pre-wedding film, same-day-edits, and drone videography.
Aside from videography, they offer wedding, pre-wedding, engagement, and candid photoshoots as well. Although they are able to cover more than weddings such as corporate events, their main specialty is really working with weddings.
So that’s something to consider with this production house. You might consider looking for another videographer if you think you will be needing something different for your project.
Based on our experience and other clients’ feedback, they’re very friendly and understanding, making them easy to work with. They also deliver their required output on time at an amazing level of service; with coverage that captures the nuances and subtleties of natural moments in a live event.
As for pricing, you have to provide them specific details for your production for them to give an accurate quotation of their services. They’ll ask you for the following:
- Scope of work (Is it a product video or an event?)
- Number of videos
- Duration of videos
- Editing needed (Is it coverage + edits or just edits?)
They can be reached via phone call, email, or through their website. They reply promptly, from what we experienced.
My experience is completely satisfactory and awesome
We hired video & photography services of IMPRINT for our corporate gala dinner. Right from sending the request for their quote until the receipt of final processed data (video and pictures), my experience is completely satisfactory and awesome. The owner (Anish) himself is a nice, responsive and cooperative gentleman who does his best to understand the requirements of clients and propose best possible solutions. The team arrived well-in-time at the event with no last minute chases, follow ups etc! They knew their job fully and followed all plans from the beginning until the end.Then they shared complete data in less than 2-3 business days and to be honest the guys did an amazing job. Being a corporate event, we had to do a few revisions/amendments in the video which Anish and his team happily did for us. If you really want to have a memorable event, a complete VALUE FOR MONEY and a PROFESSIONAL team handling your event, then don’t look here and there, just go ahead and book the services with IMPRINT. Trust me – you won’t regret it. Thank you Anish, Jherico and all the team members. -Rameez Anwar

2. MishaalsRaw | Premium Photography & Videography Services
|Al Sufouh - Al Sufouh 2 - Dubai - United Arab Emirates
|+971 55 523 3695
|1.1 Level of experience
|1.2 Production quality
|4. CLIENT SATISFACTION
MishaalsRaw is a production house established by Mishaal Ashok, a portrait, landscape, and events videographer and photographer. What we like most about their work are the quality of the shots and clear-cut editing.
The production house has experience in product videography, events coverage, and wedding videography. They also have 360-degree virtual tours of properties for real estate videos.
They’re very versatile with their work, so they are a great option for more complex projects that have intricate and varied production requirements. Their versatility and professionalism are probably what landed them projects with renowned brands such as Hugo Boss as well as various government and corporate events coverages and videos.
Based on our experience, they’re very easy to coordinate with regarding project briefs and are very professional. Mishaal, in particular, cultivated a light and pleasant work atmosphere.
Not only are the shots of good quality, but they communicate very well, making it a good working experience for everyone involved. They’re very dedicated and enthusiastic; their passion shows in their work, which we love.
They’re also available 24 hours, 7 days. So they’re perfect for long shoots when necessary.
A downside, however, is there are not many available communication channels to reach them. They’re also not active on social media, which is unfortunate since it can be a good platform to showcase their reels.
We think it might be best to go to their office directly or give them a call to inquire.
I can vouch for his fantastic work and delivery timelines
Worked with Mishaal on various projects, including films and photography for the government and key industry leaders and I can vouch for his fantastic work and delivery timelines. Mishaal makes sure to deliver the high quality and well edited images and videos at all times, even when the deadlines are tight. Definitely recommend MishaalsRaw Photography if you’re looking for a well experienced photographer and team. -Karen Lobo
Went out of his way to deliver incredible films that exceeded client expectations
Having Mishaal on our team made the entire production during a two-day intense schedule absolutely effortless. Not only did he instantly grasp the brief, Mishaal was quick to adapt to changes in the programme, and went out of his way to deliver incredible films that exceeded client expectations.Mishaal approaches every project with a high level of confidence, backed by years of experience, and is a reliable teammate who can manage tense situations with ease. He created a pleasant work atmosphere for all throughout the project, and was quick to become a valuable member of our crew.I highly recommend working with Mishaal, whose people management skills are at par with his filming prowess. -Elma Bartholomew

Not only did they deliver a great output, but they were an absolute pleasure to work with
My company hired Dreambox to produce a commercial for a Kids Product and we are THRILLED with their work! Not only did they deliver a great output, but they were an absolute pleasure to work with. Their communication skills are amazing and their response time is unbelievably quick – any time I had a question they replied literally within moments. And the director Ilya was just the greatest: Super talented, personable, creative, with awesome people skills. He was never afraid to put his ideas and creative thoughts, yet always willing to compromise in order to make us happy and deliver the highest quality commercial. We have already hired them to produce a second commercial. THANK YOU Dreambox Productions!- Hana Hafees

Closed on Saturdays
Goldfish Photography & Video FZ LLC is a boutique photography and videography production company that has more than 25 years of experience, so they’ve been around for quite some time.
They have branches both in Dubai and the UK, making them experienced in two very different markets. Their years of experience and impressive reel of wedding and events coverage must be why they have a solid reputation as a production company.
We noticed however that they’re mostly well known for their photography services and are mostly working on weddings and similar events. So their range of services is not as wide as their competitors.
Still we included them for their established clientele and years of experience as a production company. Based on our experience working with them, they’re very attentive to details and can give valuable insight on how to make a project appeal more to audiences.
They’re also very efficient and have a fantastic work ethic, based on what we’ve seen. Their years of experience and level of expertise are really evident in their different video projects, especially those for large events.
Blown away at how efficient they were able to work
They did photography at a wedding I coordinated and I was blown away at how efficient they were able to work. We had a very tight schedule, but they barely stopped moving from 10am-10pm to ensure that we kept everything on time. Great option for wedding photos in Dubai! -Kenoa Gallion
We had a fantastic experience
We had a fantastic experience conceptualizing and shooting a video with Goldfish. We wanted to do a video to raise awareness of food allergies and came to them with lots of ideas, which they managed to understand, organize and advise on what would work best for our social media platform. We were BLOWN AWAY by the video and can’t thank them enough for their magic! -Anamaria Castillo

Tips for Choosing the Best Videographer
- Check their expertise and level of experience.
First off, consider their level of expertise by watching their reel and sample videos. They usually post those on their website.
From there, you’d see the quality of their shots and get a general feel of their production style, so you’ll see if they’re the production house for you. Usually the videos speak for themselves, but researching the videographers’ credentials and track record won’t hurt as well.
- Ask for a quotation.
Once you’ve identified your top picks, you can then tell them your specifications and ask for a quotation. Do take note that the price really depends on the production house.
Once you have the finalized quotations, you can compare the prices to find which one will give you the most bang for your buck.
- Read reviews and referrals.
Aside from the production quality of the videos, it’s also important for you to assess their manner and friendliness since you’ll be working closely together throughout the duration of the project. Reading reviews and asking for referrals can be game changers.
These reviews will give you a preview of how it is to work with these videographers. Most reviews highlight factors like efficiency, attitude, and ease of service.
