I suppose that depends on what type of "event videography" policy you're looking for. Do you need a liability policy (covers you in case someone trips over one of your cables at an event and things like that), an inland marine policy (I have no idea why it's called that) which covers theft of your equipment while on a shoot, or errors-and-omissions insurance (you put the wedding down on the wrong date on your calendar and didn't show up type of stuff). The first two are pretty common and most insurers such as State Farm can cover you. Errors and Omissions is more specialized. WEVA (Wedding and Event Videographers Association) has someone they recommend (I think the name is Buell or something like that), but they can be a little difficult to contact sometimes.

Thank you for the response.I would need General Liability of at least $1,000,000 . I have contacted a couple. So far the best price is prophotographersinsurance.com or AKA RV Nuccia and associates. I am still on the hunt but $235 a year and cover all 3 of my videographers sounds too good to be true.

Hi Joe,

I'm the Taylor Davidson, Jonathan referenced.

You're not off base thinking that premium is low. It doesn't mean it's not the right coverage but it certainly indicates that you would want to do some serious double checking directly with the carrier before assuming everything you want to do would be covered by their insurance policy.

A number of the industry associations have EXCELLENT programs put together for the members, particularly in terms of keeping the premiums down. But the trade off is normally some serious restrictions on the type/quantity of work that will be covered under their policy.

Call or email me if you'd like to go over it in more detail (855-624-2787 or taylor@neilbenton.com).

Hope that helps!

I have used this guy:

Taylor Davidson

The Ruboyianes Company, PLLC
(520) 577-1040

Based in Tucson but he handles insurance all over the place. He can definitely point you in the right direction if he can't help you. We used him for production insurance for a 20 day shoot with similar policy limits.
