The celebration of love and marriage is a beautiful, but short, event. There is such high sentimental value on good, quality wedding pictures and videos that capture the essential moments. Photography of weddings isn’t a new concept, not by a long stretch. Drone photography, however, in just recent years is beginning to become a staple of modern weddings. Using a drone to take photographs is a revolutionary new method for getting the perfect shot, at the perfect angle from locations that would be otherwise unobtainable.
As much as a professional photographer would like to be able to scale to the top of a building to take a long shot of the entire gathering or congregation, they can’t. Either there is no access, no time or no safe place to stand, let alone take a quality picture. With the drone technology that Drone Photography Newcastle uses, we could have multiple drones from multiple angles hovering in the air taking photos before a traditional wedding photographer could even find roof access.
You’ve probably seen some of those incredibly stylized flyover videos on the internet already. These seemingly impossible and breathtaking videos are the product of drone photography. Some of the videos might follow a winding river from a staggering height, maybe zooming down toward the water to pick up some detail. Then, speeding back up to altitude for a long shot of the surrounding geography. Now, apply this method of photography and videography to your wedding. The drone could follow the most scenic route to get to your venue, and possibly end its journey with a wide shot of you and your partner on a balcony, sun setting in the distance. The possibilities are endless.
One complaint we hear about wedding photography is about the photos that would have come out much better, had the lighting, the angle or the timing been a little more precise. Drone photography is about as precise as it gets. You don’t have to worry about lighting because the drones have a built-in flash. Drones can navigate to where they get the best shot, so the angle isn’t ever a worry. Having a well-timed photograph still requires a drone operator with good timing themselves, but it is much easier to get from one end of the reception to the other, in order to be set up for just the right shot.
There’s no way that a land-bound wedding photographer can even come close to the types of photos that a drone can achieve. It’s a matter of simple fact. What you’ll get back in your photo album will set your wedding apart from those photographed by a traditional photographer. When you go to show your friends and relatives your memories, they’ll be as awestruck as you were when you first saw them. Was your favorite the shot from behind the altar? Or the fly over of the outdoor reception? Or the bird’s eye during the exchange of vows? When you have Drone Photography Newcastle taking the pictures, you may have more than one favorite.
