Your wedding Videos and films are some of the most crucial parts of your wedding day. While candid wedding photography is an essential element to capture your big day in still images, a wedding video will give you beyond what pictures capture— the emotion and atmosphere of the wedding in motion. So here are some quick dos and don’ts of candid wedding videography!
DO Include A Digital File
A digital file not only allows you to stream your wedding video to your TV via Apple TV or a similar device (several TVs now come with built-in USB ports), you can also easily share the file digitally with friends and family, both near and far.
DON’T Include Guest Interviews
Guests tend to say the same exact things in video messages. How often do you go much beyond, “Congratulations—you look beautiful and good luck,” when you get the mike at a party? As one of the best candid wedding photographers in Hyderabad, I say you can safely omit this.
DO include bytes from close family
Usually family members prepare their bytes beforehand so they always have something interesting to share or maybe even some funny incidents. Make sure you include those to give your guests a glimpse into your personal lives.
DON’T do a photomontage
Those PPT type pictures are boring and very 2005! This will also bore your guests especially if it’s at the start of your wedding video.
DO a highlights reel
As one of the best candid wedding photographers in Hyderabad, I say this is a must-do! This will be like a mini trailer of sorts of your entire wedding video. You can send this to friends and family via Whatsapp to give them a sneak peek into the wedding video and then share the full file on a pen drive or online.
DON’T have an hour long wedding film
Ideally, as one of the best candid wedding photographers in Hyderabad I would suggest that you should have a wedding film that is maximum of 40-50 minutes. Having something longer than that will bore you and your guests to death!
DO watch all of the raw footage
You need to understand that as a candid wedding photographer, I may not completely understand your family and friends circle so it’s important for you to watch the entire raw footage in case you want specific people to be captured in the video. It may take a while but as one of the best candid wedding photographers in Hyderabad, I can assure you that it will be worth it!
