The wedding season has been keeping my weekends very busy as of recently. On the side to my 9-5 job at a Marketing agency, I shoot wedding videos with another local photographer, Lighthouse Wedding Films.
So far for the 2019 wedding season I have been to St. Louis, Johnson City, Tennessee, Detroit, Michigan and then some local weddings in SW Missouri. It’s been keeping me on the move but its been fun.
Capturing someones big day is rewarding and seeing how excited they’re when they get the final product is ever better.
When shooting wedding videos, I shoot all of it handheld with a 35mm f/2 or 24-70 f/2.8 and we stick to a pretty wide shot but also get some nice closeups when we need to. I would say we shoot in a documentary style. We capture audio with a zoom recorder during the ceremony and reception and we also will sit them down and have them read their vows and that serves as a good chunk of their audio throughout the video along with music.
In the future I will be sharing more of the process so stay tuned.
Until next time…stay ON THE SHUTTER
