One of the coolest trends in wedding photography is to use a quadcopter or drone to do the filming. This provides a unique perspective unlike anything that has been done before. If you’re interested in doing something like this for your wedding ceremony there are a few things you should look for in a videographer.
Experience is Key
When it comes to capturing video of one of the biggest days of your life you only get one chance. This means you want a cameraman that has experience in getting the right angle and the right shot. You don’t want to have to hold up parts of your ceremony just to get the video you want.
An experienced photographer will know where to position the camera to get the best and most unique shot. They will also be competent at keeping the equipment out of the way. There is nothing like experience to get the best possible results to remember your special day by.
Quadcopters are not toys. They are capable of causing great physical harm to both people and property if they are not flown with care. This is extremely important to remember in cases where there will be a lot of people around. The last thing you want is for one of your guests to get injured by the flying camera recording your wedding.
You want to be sure that the pilot of the drone at your wedding has great control and understands his or her limitations when it comes to getting the best shot. It’s not worth putting yourselves or your guests in danger just to get a unique angle.
Make sure you check out other videos this photographer has made to ensure their editing skills are good. It’s one thing to get a ton of footage at an event. It’s quite another to edit it into something that best represents the mood of your special day.
