If in the noughties it was fash­ion­able to be cre­ative in pho­tos using Pho­to­shop, now drones are at the peak of fash­ion. They will help to shoot pho­tos and videos from a height, save such shots that brides could not even dream of before. Do you also want to use a drone at your wed­ding but don’t know how? We’ve put togeth­er a few tips to help you under­stand:

1. Do you need a drone for a wed­ding?

2. What you need to know and pre­pare before shoot­ing.

3. How to use a drone on a hol­i­day.

Ready? Then let’s deal with Chan­fash­ion .

Do you need a drone for a wedding?

Not every wed­ding will have some­thing to shoot from the height of the flight. When is a drone not need­ed:

  • Wed­ding indoors.
  • The wed­ding is mod­est, in the fam­i­ly cir­cle, up to 20 peo­ple.
  • The loca­tion of the hol­i­day often changes.
  • The loca­tion of the hol­i­day is in the city, where there are many sky­scrap­ers.

And in these cas­es you can safe­ly use shoot­ing drone:

  • Wed­ding in nature, open space
  • Wed­ding by the sea or in the moun­tains
  • wed­ding cer­e­mo­ny
  • Many guests, bright design of the loca­tion
  • Hol­i­day on a yacht on the high seas
  • Cer­e­mo­ny on the rooftop

What you need to know and prepare before shooting

Still decid­ed to use the drone at the wed­ding? Then here’s what you need to pre­pare:

1. Find a suit­able drone, insure it.

2. Find the per­son respon­si­ble for film­ing. The one who con­trols the drone must under­stand how to use it, because this is not just a radio-con­trolled air­plane. You need to find a pro­fes­sion­al who knows how to cre­ate spec­tac­u­lar shots from a height.

3. Don’t give up on the reg­u­lar pho­tog­ra­ph­er. Clas­sic wed­ding pho­tos, por­traits, details — you can’t shoot on a drone. This requires a sep­a­rate per­son with a cam­era.

4. Pick weath­er con­di­tions. If it rains out­side, then not only the future wed­ding album, but also the drone itself may suf­fer.

5. Find ref­er­ences for pho­tos and videos. When you find a spe­cial­ist who will take respon­si­bil­i­ty for work­ing with the drone, pre­pare ref­er­ences for him. These are the shots that you would like to see as a result. Select pho­tos and videos accord­ing to stag­ing, col­or, atmos­phere. The more detailed you explain before shoot­ing, the cool­er the fin­ished work will be.

Did you get to point 5? Then you can start look­ing for ref­er­ences and ideas. We have also pre­pared some ideas to help you with the choice of future frames.

How to use a drone on a holiday

If there is already a shoot­ing from a height, then you need to come up with a frame arrange­ment. For exam­ple, to imple­ment such ideas:

1. Lie with the groom on the grass, lay out the dress and hair beau­ti­ful­ly. Take a few pho­tos up close, and then video as the drone approach­es and moves away.

2. If the wed­ding is in the moun­tains, be sure to shoot at sun­rise and sun­set. The drone can fly in front of the open top car where you and the groom will be dri­ving. You can also ride quad bikes or horse­back rid­ing.

3. If the wed­ding is on the shore, then you can take pic­tures with the waves, pose with the groom in a boat or on a boat. Just like in the moun­tains, take a ride on trans­port or on horse­back. Or just run, fool around, spin around to get dynam­ic shots.

4. Let the drone fly a few cir­cles over the guests, for exam­ple when they are danc­ing.

But it’s bet­ter to warn the spe­cial­ist so that he doesn’t shoot with a drone up close, dur­ing the cer­e­mo­ny itself. You don’t want some­thing to make noise over your ear dur­ing the pro­nun­ci­a­tion of wed­ding vows and spoil the atmos­phere? It is bet­ter to write a list of those very moments when the drone should fade into the back­ground.

We hope that our ideas and tips will be use­ful to you, and the shots from above will be on top 🙂
