Let me on drone on for a bit...I just uploaded our latest highlight reel, Brittney + Nick, and it involvled
our first ever drone footage! It was fun to get some fun establishing shots of the grounds before the big
I recall my old roommate telling me to get a drone and I just never saw the need or reason for it in the budget...but after seeing other wedding videos and reels, it's a necessity almost.
Now, using a drone and getting the footage also depends on the area. Chicago can be difficult to get
some drone footage unless you're a master, it's been approved, or your grandfathered in. I am still
hesitant about using the drone in the city.
It also has to have a purpose. I know many videographers cringe when they see a reel start with a drone shot, but ya know what? It looks epic and draws in the viewer! Especially any of our followers who aren't used to drone shots showing up in our reels.
I guess the point of this post is not so much to ramble, but to address the future. I was very much against upgrading to DSLR cameras back in the day and I am not sure why I didn't do it sooner! I need to be faster when acquriing more videos and tools to create even greater wedding videos!
I hope you enjoyed my latest blog post!
