A question we’re often asked is do we work alone? We can, but we prefer not to. It benefits everyone to have a second photographer on the day. For us, that second photographer can help cover the day in a much wider spread. They can capture second angles of everything, they can help back up cards whilst you’re still out shooting, then can assist on anything you need as the lead photographer.

The benefit for our couples when you choose a package that includes us both is huge. At Unveil, Brydn and Ian are both experienced photographer videographers by trade, and have been shooting weddings for nearly 10 years. What does this mean?

Sometimes the groom's images can either not be shot, or not shot as well or creatively because a single photographer can't get to both parties without missing key moments. A photographer might use a second shooter on a really low day rate because they’re not experienced.

With us, it means that in the morning of your special day, you have two fully experienced photographers covering both the bride and groom, one designated to each. Then throughout the day, you have two angles covered. One leads the group shots, while the other snaps the guests arriving. One shoots the speeches, whilst the other captures the reactions. One shoots the lovely couples, whilst the other captures your guests mingling and having a great time celebrating you both.

Our larger packages with video included, we feel we have a huge benefit. Our contacts we’ve made throughout our careers at our agencies, means we also have super experienced photographers and videographers we can call upon to shoot your wedding in a premium fashion. These people are trusted and vouched on by us, because at the end of the day, we started Unveil to produce quality content and we wouldn't just pick anyone to join us on your day. It's important we work with people we know and trust. We have to know they’re capable, have the quality we expect from ourselves, and also know how to work with us, we wouldn't want them in all of your shots because they don't know how we shoot. You’re in safe hands with us.

We have been asked this question multiple times! To be completely honest, when we first started out, the simple answer would have been 100% yes. I think we both lost a couple nights sleep worrying about our early weddings. Now it’s a different story.

Both working in the video and photography agency for 4 years was fantastic. Both being trained in photography and video, this was the perfect environment for us to practice our craft and train our creative muscles. Working in an agency offers such a variety of work and puts you in a lot of strange and stressful situations.

Coming straight from 6th form/university we found ourselves being chucked into situations where we didn’t have the solutions. This meant we were thinking on the spot constantly. As difficult as these moments might have been, we wouldn’t change a second as these situations have moulded us into the videographer/photographers we are today allowing us to make quick and accurate decisions without a moment's hesitation.

As we all know, every second and moment is important on your wedding day, but with our experience, we make sure that not a single second is missed.

Ok, so you’ve picked your package, you know what you’re going to receive and that’s it you’ll see your photographer/videographer on the day. Sounds simple right? But do you really know your photographer/videographer and are you confident that they have a good connection with you? What's different with us is we really want to take the time to get to know you, so that on the day we’re all familiar with one another and you have full confidence that every decision we make is in your best interests. This also means your photography and video is natural and in the style you dream of.

This is why we always arrange a pre wedding meeting or couples shoot, depending on the package you pick. Either way, this meeting is the perfect opportunity to get to know one another over a coffee, pint or nice walk around the venue. It's so important because on the day we believe we need to know each other. There might be things you specifically want us to capture, or things you want us to avoid, at this meeting we can discuss everything about your wedding day and the do’s and don'ts.

On the wedding day, we like to work as a fly on the wall as much as possible. The intention here to photograph or video the day as naturally as possible, capturing all those candid smiles and intimate moments from you and your guests. There will be moments we need to step in of course, such as the group photos or couples shoot, and we’re more than happy to do so and have lots of experience in managing these scenarios. Sometimes we like to set up moments too, but again in a natural way. We have subtle little tricks we’ve picked up over the years to ensure when we’re setting up specific shots that it still looks lovely and legitimate. You wouldn't want to spend a lot of money on just getting photos of everyone looking rigidly at the camera and that's the last thing we want. We like to approach everything creatively, doing something slightly different every time to ensure your images are unique.

We’ve worked shooting photography and videography at weddings for over 8 years now and have actually worked together in the same company shooting commercial photography and video content for the last 5 of those. Our experience allows us to be confident on your day and know exactly where to be at the right time. We know what you want, and we know how to get it. So, when we’re filming and taking our pictures, we’re like a well oiled machine.

We like to package our final content up, so when we send it to our couples they get a nice surprise gift to open. Our communication through the process is strong, because we want our couples to understand what's going on when it comes to time frames, there's nothing like being left in the lurch. With our video, we offer rounds of amends too. This allows you to make any changes free of charge to your video and makes sure that the final video is exactly how you imagined it.
