About

On WeddingWire since 2020

We are a husband & wife team that want to help you remember your special day through photography AND videography!!!

First things first, let us tell you a little bit about us! We are COVID newlyweds, so we actually got married twice, once with our families only and one to celebrate with our friends! And lets just say both times seemed like a whirlwind of a day but so incredibly special. We met in college and have spent the last few years really focusing on our crafts in photography and videography individually. As we sat back and realized how important it was for us to remember our big day(s), we talked about how much we would love to bring that joy to other couples. We wanted to be able to show you how beautiful everything looked because we know how much work you did to get it JUST right, and how much fun you were having and all those people you may not have even seen that night were having. We wanted you to forever remember that moment when you see your "person" turn around and see you for the first time all day, and even remember when they smushed the cake in your face when you told them not to! We want to make your wedding day special, laid back, fun and most importantly we want to turn it into a DEFINING moment!

We would love to hear your story and help you through this awesome journey!

Love,

The Heady's 馃挊

    The best team!

    Bradleigh and Nick made our wedding day so incredibly special! They are so easy to work with and captured the day perfectly. We also had our engagement photos with Bradleigh and she helped us pick out the perfect locations since we were not from the area. Our wedding was not in Alabama and we were so thrilled that they were willing to travel to capture our day. My husband and I can be slightly awkward in front of the camera, but they both helped guide us and made us feel relaxed and comfortable. We are beyond grateful for everything they did to make our day perfect with memories that will last us forever! - erica and craig

    Best there is!

    This couple is the perfect package for your wedding day! I specifically loved them not only because of their amazingly talented videoing skills, but because they truly love what they do. They make your day come alive by focusing on the uniqueness of the couple, and enjoying the wedding day getting to know who you are. The most fun loving and kind couple I have ever met! (If you want your video to be unique and perfect! Pick them for your photography and videography 馃) I can say without a doubt they made our wedding day better than it would have been without them. They feel like your friends you鈥檝e known forever!

    Here is their video for us!

    Absolute rockstars

    They are the dream team! They were great about reaching out the days ahead to make sure we had a game plan for the video and what we were looking for :) they also made it so perfect with showing our goofy personalities and fun sides as well. I can鈥檛 thank them enough for the masterpiece that is our wedding video! They also are the sweetest couple and so easy to communicate with. If I were to do my big day all over again I would choose Defining Moments Media over again!!

    After viewing 55 vendors, I narrowed it down to 3. My daughter and I decided to go with Defining Moments. So glad we did! The video is perfect!

    Nick and Bradleigh were there and captured every single special moment of the day and night without being noticed. The music they picked for the video and the excerpts they chose from the ceremony and the reception were exactly what we wanted to see. I just can鈥檛 recommend them enough. For two people and a drone, you will not find a better value and videographer! If they are available for your date, hire them!

    Wouldn't change a thing!

    Our experience with Bradleigh and Nick Heady was amazing and I wouldn't change a thing!

    Neither me or my husband are comfortable in front of the camera so finding a photographer and videographer was daunting. When we started working with the Heady's it was effortless.

    Their pricing guide is so simple and straightforward- this was my biggest frustration when trying to research other photographers/videographers. Also, their packages are very inclusive and reasonable.

    Our engagement shoot was fun and they provided all the direction we needed. The Heady's are dog friendly and we had a blast sharing the experience with our pups.

    Before the wedding, in Dripping Springs, Texas, I asked for a second photographer. Bradleigh went above and beyond by researching and offered me options with her thoughts. The second photographer we decided on was very professional and added to experience.

    The day-of the Heady's showed up early and worked flawlessly with our coordinator. I didn't worry about them getting great photos because they were on it... the WHOLE time!

    Their professionalism and work ethic didn't go unnoticed by our guests. I feel so lucky they were such a big part of our day. We have gorgeous photos and videos of us and all our friends and family. Thank you!

    The BEST Experience!

    Nick and Bradleigh truly went above and beyond our greatest dreams when capturing our wedding day and creating our wedding video!

    Leading up to the wedding day, they were incredibly responsive with any and all questions I had, and they were very attentive to knowing what our priorities were on our big day and that no detail was going to be missed. Most importantly, they completely listened to our main vision of glorifying the Lord throughout our day and making sure our video exuded the joy we were feeling!

    Day of the wedding, they made us feel so special and cared for -- they were not simply there to get footage, but rather to make sure everything went as planned and that we were relaxed during every stage of the day. They were easy-going, helpful, and brought a sense of calm to the day simply by being a stellar husband and wife duo!

    And finally, the video itself -- We were BLOWN away by how beautifully the day was captured. We will cherish our video for a lifetime, as it perfectly encompasses the entire day -- the meaning of marriage; the importance of family and friends; the massive(!) amount of rain; the fun; and mostly the love that Trey and I share.

    We are so thankful for our experience with Nick and Bradleigh and would truly recommend them to ALL of our family and friends. It was the best experience with the sweetest memories to look back on for a lifetime.

    10/10 Would ALWAYS Recommend!!!

    How do we even begin? Besides the actual marriage part of our wedding, Defining Moments Media was one of the most AMAZING parts of our special day! Bradleigh and Nick were wonderful to work with and very attentive throughout the whole videography process. They both are so talented and such a great team, not to mention fun to work with! Chris and I are truly grateful for the dedication they put towards the memories from our special day and they helped make the experience quite memorable for both of us. 10/10, would recommend!!!

    There aren鈥檛 words to describe what Nick and Bradleigh bring to the wedding experience!

There were moments they caught we didn鈥檛 know about and those are the moments you cherish the most! They are so talented and their dynamic and love for one another radiates through their work.

    Engagement Video

    Nick and Bradleigh were the absolute best videographers! They shot an engagement video for my fianc茅 and I and it brought me to tears!! They captured beautiful and natural, candid moments between my fianc茅 and I that I鈥檒l cherish forever.
    I could tell how much planning they did before the shoot, also. They had researched locations and visited them beforehand to find the perfect backdrop and lighting. They also brought props like confetti for us and that was so much fun to play around with. All of their preparation paid off because now we will have this amazing video forever! Thank y鈥檃ll both so much!!!
