If you have been to a lot of weddings, you would probably say that it is very difficult to capture a nice video of the couple without having to contend with a hand, a smartphone, a camera, or even the granny of either of the two. But for a professional videographer, I need to find the right angle and view so that the couple can watch their perfect moment over and over again.
Here are tips on how to create an awesome video for the wedding:
You should talk to the couple before the wedding
To get the best shot, you need to be acquainted with both the husband and the wife. They should know who you are and what your role is in the wedding. You should introduce yourself as the one who is the official videographer of the wedding.
By realizing who you are, you can immediately get their attention whenever you want to take a shot of a specific part of the wedding.
Equip yourself with a nice camera
You can only produce the best video when you carry the best equipment available. If you have a career in photo and video production, you should pick a nice video camera for you to use.
For professionals who have been in the business for quite some time, they can afford to buy cameras worth thousands of dollars. But if you are just starting in this career or you want to take videography as a hobby, then you can instead look for special discounts when you shop online. You can find coupon codes for products. Save money on electronics by comparing deals and bundles from different shops.
Move fast, carry little
Every moment counts. You should anticipate a particular shot from happening. Make sure that you are in the right place and the right time. Carry as little gear as possible and move to a specific area with as little obstruction as possible. You should move quickly, too, because you have other people who want to take the same spot.
Keep it stable
Have you ever seen blurred or very wobbly video capture? This is because the one holding the camera did not use anything to keep it stable. If it is possible, use a monopod, a tripod, a slider, or anything to stop it from moving unnecessarily.
