Simple Tips for Every Bride & Groom to Have The Best Wedding Video

These are my simple tips for every bride and groom to have the best wedding video possible. I’m a strong believer that video is equally as important as getting photos; and it’s not surprising that the regret that most couples have after their wedding day was not hiring a videographer. Thankfully more and more couples are incorporating videography into their budgets; so I’d like to offer some advice to help you get the best wedding video possible. Side note: these tips will also benefit your photographer too.

 

1) Get ready in a room with lots of space and lots of natural light

Every wedding day begins with a time of “getting ready” or “prep shots.” Personally, I love this time of the day, because we’re getting to know our brides and grooms a little more as we chat and start filming; this is also when I love to get some beauty shots of the brides. To get the best shots, we need some space to move around you, and we need lots of natural light. Bathrooms are typically small, messy and have little or no natural light. Artificial lights are usually casting a warm orange light from above, which makes skin look yellowish and creates unpleasant shadows under your eyes and nose.

Sacramento Wedding Videographer – Citizen Hotel

I love filming destinations weddings, but it’s also great to film in my hometown of Sacramento. Downtown Sacramento has a lot of great wedding venues, and the Citizen Hotel has some of the best views of our great city.

When I met these two for coffee downtown, I instantly felt comfortable with them and I could tell that we were going to have fun on their wedding day. Hiyadeh has a contagious laugh, and she always has a smile on her face. One of my favorite moments was during their first look when Soheil saw HIyadeh for the first time; his face lit up. It was a beautiful moment to capture. It was such a joy to film their beautiful day. Enjoy their wedding video!

Chalk Hill wedding videographer

Jon & Casey – Chalk Hill Estate Vineyards Wedding Videographer

I had such a great time filming Casey & Jon’s wedding at the gorgeous Chalk Hill Estate in Healdsburg California. This venue is phenomenal! It has so many amazing views, and plenty of locations to host different events for a wedding day. This awesome wedding was planned and coordinated by the talented Sarah Drake of Cole Drake Events, who I have had the pleasure of working with a number of times now. I love working with Sarah, she is always in great spirits throughout each wedding day, and she has such a great eye for details, and she executes everything with perfection.

Casey & Jon had an intimate wedding with a total of nine people in attendance; that’s including the two of them! I have to say that I am now a bit spoiled, and want to film more small intimate weddings! It was perfect. They have such a wonderful and loving family, and I felt like another guest among them. I feel so lucky that I get to work with such great people like Casey & Jon. Spending a short amount of time with them, it’s easy to see the love they have for one another, and the tremendous love their family has with each other.
