Five Tips On Shooting Amazing Wedding Videos

lens for wedding photography

Here are 5 tips list by Focus Wedding videographer team:

1. The right gear for the job

You may be drawn to the idea of buying the most recent Sony or Canon DSLR/Mirrorless cameras because of their high-tech specifications, but consider whether it is appropriate for your needs. With the increasing quality of wedding movies being shot, Focus Wedding videographer team state that you should think more than simply about the newest camera when selecting your equipment.

Lighting kits and reflectors are a must-have in any wedding filmmaker’s toolkit since they may really enhance the depth and cinematic feel of your footage (when used correctly).

2. Make audio a priority

The bride and groom might forgive a little bit of grainy film from the evening party, but they will despise you for ever if you ruin their wedding vows on video. Making sure that you’ve got a firm grasp on the fundamentals of audio recording can reduce risk while also allowing for some great wedding videos.

Because we have seen it happen, we’d always advocate recording audio with a second device (a ZOOM H4N or Tascam for example) in case something goes wrong so you’ll always have a backup.

3. Get B-roll Coverage

It isn’t necessary to hire a second shooter if you’re getting B-roll coverage. In fact, many wedding videographers who can’t afford to pay for a second (less expensive) camera and tripod often just invest in another (less expensive) camera and tripod.

Focus Wedding videography team state that you might leave it on a wide shot while focusing on close ups or have the second camera on the opposite side of the venue.

4. Attend the Rehearsal

Attending the rehearsal allows you to mentally storyboard important moments, as well as consult with the bride and groom further. Being able to rehearse also gives you a good idea of where you may position your lighting and second camera.

Also, Our team state that becoming familiar with the site and timetable will help you save time on your wedding day and shoot more photographs.

5. Get Creative

Although you don’t necessarily have a “shot list” at a wedding, there are some photos you know you’ll need to take. We recommend to push the limits and try to do something innovative as often as possible after you’ve obtained them.
