We work with new photographers ALL of the time! We will always reach out to your photography team, DJ, and venue coordinator before the wedding day to make sure they know we are coming and ask if there’s anything we need to know about how they like to work. Additionally, communication on the wedding day is our utmost priority! We’ll always meet with your photography team before any large events to make sure we both understand where we’ll be so we’re not crashing into each other.

A lot of our couples love that we capture the wedding day as it unfolds – not forcing any shots or getting too much in the way. Our main priority is to stay as much out of the way as possible to allow the candid moments to happen. This style of shooting creates a more natural feel to our videos and photos – nothing too dramatic and over-the-top. With that being said, we are still flexible and can tailor your video and photos look and feel however you’d like.

Think of these clips as the “puzzle pieces” to the videos that will be delivered. We’ll hold onto your raw footage for up to 12 months after your wedding so this is something you can always add on after the wedding as well!

Yes! Although our team is only allowed to use copyright-free music, you still are able to have input into which copyright-free song(s) we use in your highlight video. On your “follow-up call” with your wedding day of videographer, you will be able to chat about what mood/style you’d prefer for your wedding video. This will allow us to accurately choose a song or pair of songs just right for you.
Our payment structure is actually quite unique! Only 1/3 of the total package price is due upfront to lock us in. The remaining 2/3 of your balance won’t be due until we are ready with your videos – typically 8 weeks after your wedding date.
We will always use 2 sources of audio throughout the wedding day. For example, during the ceremony, we’ll record the audio by plugging a recorder directly into the DJ’s soundboard. Second, we place a clip-on mic on the groom and the officiant to capture the audio for the groom, bride, and the officiant. Don’t worry you won’t have any wires showing, it’s discreet. It also won’t interfere with any signals coming from your DJ!
We started The Uncommon Weddings with one mission in mind – to provide an experience so “out-of-this-world” for our couples they’d look back on their wedding experience with us and say, “Wow, that was different”. We intentionally make an effort for all of our couples to feel like our closest friends and family. Before, on, and after their wedding day, our couples are treated with love and attention at a standard that is far Uncommon in our industry.
