This is my top package that includes everything from package 2:
Back in 2007, when I offered to film Girls Aloud for a wedding couple who booked them for their wedding reception in Italy (I know!), I realised that there was a market for my video services as well as photography. (I can also video the entire wedding in High Definition with no photography if that is what you’d prefer).
Since 2007, I have videoed more and more aspects of the wedding whilst still producing the same high level of photography that I always have. Please be assured that I never lower my photography standards just because I add extra services to my packages. This is why I use a second photographer or videographer for the day.
Earlier in 2015, I qualified as a BNUC-s UAV (drone) pilot which gives me permission from the Civil Aviation Authority to film commercially at weddings and other events. Aerial footage and stills at a wedding are still very new but believe me, they can add real pzazz to your day.
If you have a stunning venue for the ceremony and/or reception, please consider aerial footage and stills for your wedding as it will really make your day and give your guests something to talk about!
You can see some of my aerial work, including various show-reels, over at my other website www.flyinthesky.co.uk. Please note that aerial filming at your wedding will be subjected to various conditions that we have to meet as per the CAA…we do everything by the book and will not risk anything by flying illegally.
Important: If you hire a non-qualified, non-insured pilot for your wedding day and something goes wrong, you and the pilot could be liable for damages which could run into the thousands.
The reason I added all this into my packages is I found that more and more couples requested video once they realised it saved a lot of money hiring both photographer and videographer. The parts of the day I film are:
You can see in my slideshow below, that I add some footage in to add a little extra to the show. I hope you see the value that this can bring to the memory of your day! Rest assured that I have almost as much knowledge and experience with video as I do with stills cameras…I edited (chopped to bits) my first (cine) film at around 13-14 years old.
Here is the feedback I received from the bride in the above slideshow:
“Nick has been the most fantastic photographer & videographer – we can’t recommend him highly enough! From our fantastic engagement shoot in Weymouth back in May and scouting the wedding venue and learning the layout the day before, to the big day itself in August, Nick has always been the perfect balance of friendly & professional.
He is a really lovely personable guy, with loads of enthusiasm to boot and made us feel completely at ease when taking our pictures. He was absolutely discreet on the day, and yet has managed to capture every moment perfectly! Our speeches ran on meaning our first dance was quite late, but he took everything in his stride and even stayed for a while after, capturing some fun dancing shots.
The photos he has taken are just incredible, and the slideshow outstanding – it is highly addictive and we can’t stop watching it with huge grins on our faces! A big THANK YOU just doesn’t quite seem to do our appreciation justice!”
The equipment I use ranges from full broadcast quality HD video cameras right down to tiny, inconspicuous HD cameras that get hidden away here and there. I also, if possible, spend some time interviewing the odd guest throughout the day to capture some cool sound bites and memorable clips for you to enjoy.
