Anyone can take a photo.

In fact, it’s probable that almost everyone attending your wedding will have a camera. So why hire us?

For starters, we understand that wedding photos are about you and the ones you love - those who will gather to support, cry, laugh, drink, dance, sing and drink. Those who will help you mark one of the most important milestones of your life.

Then there’s our skill. Anyone can take a photo, but can anyone convince your uncle to smile? We’ve been bet against before and we’ve never lost. Challenge accepted.

Finally, our creativity. Anyone can take an average photo: guests at dinner, the couple cutting the cake, your cousin at the bar. Again.

But you’re unique. And this is your once-in-a-lifetime moment.

We don’t just take great photos. We capture raw emotion. We’ll be there when your grandparents take to the dance floor. When your mother comes in for another hug. When your father wipes away a tear.

We’re the best at what we do. In seven years we’ve seen just about everything, and guarantee we can handle whatever your guests can throw at us. Except for the food. It’s not good for the cameras.

Anyone can take a photo. But this is your wedding. Don’t leave your memories to just anyone. Read less

Stop looking and hire JD! Our engagement & wedding pictures are so beautiful, I couldn't be happier. His style is very candid - if you want a bunch of photos of you and your bridal party in a row - he can do it, but you're missing out on what makes his photography so special. JD can capture the true joy of your day. I have stunning pics of my Dad seeing me in my dress for the first time, my fiance's face during our first look, my flower girls playing in my veil, my husband and I laughing during our first dance and the groomsmen goofing around. He is so easy to work with. I've reccomended him to 2 friends already and both have said the exact same thing. I would 100% hire him again.

Unveil did an outstanding job capturing the moments from what was the biggest day of our lives. The day went very smooth, and all photographers performed in an exceptional way, capturing candid shots at any turn, in addition to accommodating any other shots my husband and I wanted done. Their professionalism is unlike any I've seen and we received our photos in a quick amount of time to review and order for print. Overall, a fantastic experience and I would highly recommend Unveil for your special day. - Tonia & Andrew

We used Unveil Photography for both our engagement and wedding photos. Both times we were extremely happy with our photos. The Unveil team made it easy to be comfortable in front of the photographer which allowed for our photos to capture the true moment. The photos Unveil captured tells the story of our day, which is amazing because we found the day went by so quickly. Flipping through the photos we’re able to see how the day unfolded, and the emotion that everyone felt. The Unveil team was very creative and could capture beautiful photos with the area surrounding our venue. There was no need to go searching for the perfect backdrop because their photographers can turn the simplest surroundings into beautiful works of art. Throughout the night they captured incredible candid photos of our guests. They were extremely professional and easy to work with throughout the entire process. We are so lucky to have such amazing wedding photos and can’t thank the Unveil team enough.

We are from the US and had a destination wedding in Niagara-on-the-Lake. Planning a wedding from a distance can have its challenges, and it was really important for us to select vendors we could trust. We interviewed several photographers and ended up with unveil because of JD's professionalism and impressive portfolio.

On the big day, everything went exactly as planned. I hate having my picture taken, but JD made me feel comfortable. Both he and his assistant were really professional but at the same time kept the mood light. Naturally, we were really excited to see the photos! JD delivered them within 2 weeks of the event, which is awesome (for perspective, our friends who got married 2 weeks prior to us had to wait about a month and a half for theirs. They were pretty jealous of us). The photos were amazing! My husband and I can't pick a favorite shot...JD has such an ability to capture emotion and little moments that may go unnoticed by others. We also ordered a USB drive with the photo files, and that was delivered as promised.

My wife and I were both extremely happy with JD and the unveil team's work. They did an amazing job.

Up to the event, JD was always quick to answer any of our questions and exceeded all our expectations on the day of. Our photographers from unveil, JD and Sarah, were on their game all night. They were friendly and unassuming with the rest of our guests, and candidly captured the whole day. They were especially accommodating towards the end of the evening when we were running behind schedule and had no problem staying a little late to get a few shots of our first dances. They were a pleasure to work with and we're really lucky to have shots like these to remember our wedding.

Using Unveil was the best decision we could have made. Once the wedding started I barely noticed the photographers as they made themselves blend in and capture the event candidly and naturally!Once i got a look at the shots it became clear that every great moment from the night was captured and even some i wasnt able to see in the fast pace of the night! My wife and I couldn't be happier with Unveil and we highly suggest using them for your wedding!

My husband and I couldn't be happier with our wedding photos. JD and his assistant Kate did a phenomenal job photographing our day. Our photos exceeded our expectations and we have received several compliments from our family and friends. Unveil truly captured the essence of our day. We were especially pleased with the way that JD and Kate photographed our guests – it was wonderful to see all our guests’ reactions.

The unveil team did an amazing job capturing our wedding day!
When we first met with JD we knew that the unveil team was a great match for us. Unveils photojournalistic style was perfect for us because we wanted the pictures to tell the story of our wedding, not just be a series of orchestrated shots. We wanted a photographer who was creative and who was able to capture the smallest sweetest moments of the night and that is exactly what the unveil team did. We both felt extremely comfortable being photographed by the unveil team and I think that is very important. I can't say enough great things about unveil. Now that my wedding is over I absolutely love being able look over my pictures and re-experience the best night ever and that is only possible because of the unveil team!

I would wholeheartedly recommend unveil wedding photography. JD and his assistant were wonderful photographers. They were extremely professional, creative and a pleasure to spend the day with. They captured the intimate moments that made our day memorable and special. Unveil’s photojournalistic style captured the moments that truly matter rather than forced posed pictures. We could not be happier with our wedding photos and are extremely proud to show them off!

JD was such a pleasure! He is talented beyond belief; the shots are amazing! But also, extremely professional to deal with..always responding in a timely manner to any concerns I may have had. On our wedding day, his organization and also his sense of calm lent to the overall positive atmosphere and smoothness.
We couldn't be happier!! Thank you!

We loved Unveil's candid journalistic style which is hard to come by for wedding photogrpher in the city. We knew from our first meeting with JD that we would have an amazing experience. He is super cool and made us feel very comfortable. He was fast and very responsive to all our questions during the months leading up to the wedding day. On the day of the wedding he captured some unique moments we shared together and of our guests. Thank you sooo much for making our day feel relaxed. We enjoyed every moment.

The Unveil Team is a dream to work with. As an event planner and maid of honour at my sister's recent nuptials (Emily + Mike), I was highly involved in getting ready for the wedding. From booking, to receiving the images, everything was a seamless process. On the day of, we didn't even notice all the photos being snapped around us. There is no need to recommend Unveil - the photos sell themselves! They're better than we could have ever imagined, they capture the whole story of the happy couple's big day. Truly a pleasure!

Unveil Wedding Photography is a company that is very professional and helpful. Their website is very informative and easy to use (I am always on there looking at new slide shows of different weddings) and JD and his assistants are easy to work with! I could not be more pleased with the quality of work and the service that we were provided. Working with the company was so stress free, such a dream when you are planning a wedding. My guest kept commenting on how they did not even notice that the photographers were present at the event and they are amazed at how they were able to capture the feelings and memories of the wedding.
Unveil Wedding Photography exceeded my expectations and come highly recommended to any bride that wants professional service and gorgeous photos to last a life time.

JD produces photographs that are little works of art with plenty of style. I could tell that he got the kind of couple we were, and adapted accordingly - he matched his attitude to ours. It was a pleasure to have him at our wedding.

Unveil was incredibly easy to work with. In addition to being incredibly skilled and talented, JD has an eye for beauty and knows how dynamic such a thing is; it's captured in each photo he snaps. I wouldn't choose to work with anyone else for such an important day.
Thanks for making ours so beautifully memorable.

I chose JD because it was very important to me to have stylish contemporary pictures for my wedding. I am very happy with the way my pictures turned out. They are interesting, varied and have beautiful composition. The result was far above and beyond typical stagey wedding photography. On the day of my wedding, JD was easy-going but professional and really put me and my family at ease. The way he shoots is very non-intrusive and he caught a lot of beautiful, candid moments. He is a pleasure to deal with and worth way more than he charges. You won't be disappointed :)

We had an amazing experience with unveil weddings. Our wedding was 2 months ago and we are still being taken care of them with advice on photo choices and where to print as well as having a gorgeous leather bound photo book made. We had hundreds of unique photos to choose from. We wanted untraditional wedding photos (not the usual everybody line up) and we got the most creative and fabulous photos you will ever see. People are still raving about the photography and the personalness the photographers brought to the day!

We found that JD captured the emotion of our wedding day in a very interesting way. He used the features of the venue and the light to create many very beautiful shots. He arrived early and ready to go, and we received our prints by the time we got back from the honeymoon! I highly recommend unveil for those who want to capture not only the bride, groom and wedding partly but also the shenanigans of your guests - this is what helps to make your wedding memorable and fun!

My husband and I chose Unveil for our wedding photography because we wanted to document our wedding in a way that would capture the charm and the essence of the day and reflect our personalities. We had seen their work before and were so impressed with the beauty, elegance and artistic style of the photography that when it came to planning our big day we didn't even look at other photographers. They captured our wedding more exquisitely than we had expected. They were wonderful to work with and the quality of the photography was amazing, both on a technical and creative level. I love my wedding photos, they look like editorial photography, and I love showing them to people because they are always so blown away.

Mr. JD Howell.. where do I begin gushing? This man is by all meaning, a true and talented artist. I have had the honour and privilege of working with him several times now and I have to say, he is simply genius. He is one of coolest people I know, yes I just said cool. He is, and it works. I have never met another photographer that has made me feel more calm, relaxed and at ease and so as a result he is able to evoke sexy, beautiful confidence.. he works magic like no other. Capturing sweetness and purity, desire and lust, love and soul, comedy, sorrow, and beauty.. especially where you wouldn't believe there was any.

Our most recent project together was my wedding. I left it all in his hands. I didn't worry one bit! I knew I was well taken care of. His level of professionalism is exceptional. You can hand over to him all your trust and I promise you will not be disappointed. He is incredibly discreet. He finds such unique ways to stay removed from the moment as to not tarnish it so it can be captured in all it's honesty. Trust me, you will look back at your stunning photos and wonder "how did he get that? how did he do that? I didn't even know he was there!" I'm telling you he is not like any other wedding photographer. Anything you want you got it, but if you leave the art to the artist you will be rewarded in ways you can't even imagine. It's a hard thing to come up with words of thanks. How can you thank someone for such a service? These are the moments of your life that are priceless.. thank you JD for allowing me to forever remember the moments of that day. All those candid shots, unposed, unrealized, and just so true, all those moments that without you would have gone uncaught and over time lost in the mind and forgotten.

You are art. And a dear friend.

XO

We absolutely loved JD, he made us feel so relaxed and it felt like we had known him forever. He captured moments from our special day with the eye of a true photojournalist and artist. Most of the time he took our photos without us evening realizing, and they looked so beautiful and natural. JD gave us a perfect blend of the artistic, timeless portraits of us and our family and friends, mixed with fun spontanious candids that really brought out the fun and joy of our day.

Our photos looked like they came straight out of a high end wedding magazine, I can't believe how amazing they are! We get so many compliments. I have our photos framed in almost every room of our house!

I would definitely recommend JD to anyone that's getting married!

Much thanks to Mr. Howell and the entire Unveil team!
All was conducted with utmost professionalism; very organized and reliable.
And then the work itself...absolutely stunning! JD captures with his lens one perfect moment after the other; an outstretched hand, a smile, a glance, an angle, the light. I felt the photography covered the event superbly from guests to location but was taken so much further artistically. JD brings with him both talent and skill, but also an air of ease and comfort. This translates to a natural aspect in the shots themselves beyond being very much welcome on such a day.
I am so very grateful to have had such a wonderful photography team and such beautiful memories! With all my recommendations!

JD made things simple. In an industry where packages are over-complicated, you often feel like you are being charged double as soon as you say wedding, or people don't live up to what they say they can do for you, simple was very welcomed.

The one thing that was not simple however, were the beautiful images that JD and Bobby produced. They both have an eye for colour and detail that captured our day through a lens that was a perfect reflection of us. And the best part, you hardly knew they were there! We knew we didn't want the traditional wedding shots. Instead, we were so happy to see people caught in candid moments with real emotions; when the day goes by so quickly and you feel like you can't spend enough time with all of your guests, our pictures are truly treasured.

I have recommended JD to many friends who are getting married and will continue to do so. We have had so many compliments on our photos that his work really speaks for itself!

Unveil shot our wedding like it was an editorial for Vogue or GQ, and we couldn't be happier with the pictures. JD was so professional and unobtrusive that we didn't even realize he was snapping pictures and the resulting candid shots are so gorgeous; filled with emotion and light. Every photo is stunning!
I want to mention to other gay couples out there that JD and the unveil team were very sensitive to our needs and those of our family and guests. They helped to get everyone participating and captured the fun and love in every frame.

We had our engagement photos done by Unveil and we couldn't have been happier with the results. They were flexible around our schedule and were willing to incorporate our ideas into the shoot. Unveil wanted to make sure our photos reflected who we are - even if that involved lugging camera gear up a cliff for our outdoor/hiking photo shoot. The shoot itself was professional, comfortable, and fun! We ended up with some great shots that were creative and unique. The turnaround time between the shoot itself and getting our photos in the mail also left a great impression - less than a week after our hike, we had copies of our own. We're definitely looking to working with Unveil again soon for our wedding next year!

Unveil is a very creative photography team who captures some absolutely fantastic candid photos that you would never think of. They were there on time for every meeting we had with them, and there was never anything to worry about. The only I wish I have is that I made a point to get more specific family line up photos done. Unveil goes for the great shots you can't plan or set up but you need to indicate the line ups. Overall they were fantastic and I would use them again.

We were extremely pleased with our wedding pictures and the overall Unveil photography style, which included primarily candid pictures as welll as pictures of the majority of our guests. The photographers are not intrusive and yet captured the important moments. The smiles are real and the pictures are natural. The staff are very friendly and our pictures were ready within a week and a half after our wedding. We would highly recommend Unveil to other couples with the advice that there is less direction offered by the photographers given their candid style, so if you would like more posed shots, speak up.

Terribly disappointed. Unprofessional & lazy. Pictures are mediocre at best. There are no pictures of many of our family members, or details of the wedding, but lots of all the prettiest girls. We’re seriously considering getting everyone dressed up in wedding clothes and hiring another photographer to get key shots so we can have a handful of solid pictures.
