Drones have the capacity to take some amazing photos and videos. To some, the use of a drone for a wedding is well worth the expense to capture it all. Anyone who has seen the type of photography that is achievable with a drone is well aware of the spectacular, breathtaking views it captures. Continuing to rise in popularity throughout Canada, drones used to shoot a wedding ceremony come with some pros and cons. If you are kicking around the idea of drone photography for your wedding, there are a number of things to consider.

Many couples hire drone photography for their wedding because of what it can capture. Gamayun Media will be able to reach up high and get photos that your everyday wedding photographer can not. A wedding only happens once. There are no retakes. Drones add another level of both photography and videography that can ensure that your special day is captured adequately. Also, if there ever was a time to incorporate a drone into your life, your once-in-a-lifetime wedding is it.

No matter what venue you chose for your wedding, Gamayun Media will do a fantastic job at capturing dynamic, illustrative videos of the landscapes throughout the area. Imagine the opening scene of a movie as the camera pans over a city or a forest. Gamayun Media provides you with your own little helicopter equipped to capture your wedding and venue in the same manner, adding scope and scenic context to your event. Many people who chose to wed on a mountainside, a valley, a beach, a lake or in another nature-friendly location hire Gamayun Media for the sweeping aerial snapshots that you can’t get anywhere else.

Gamayun Media's drones are highly versatile instruments. They give our customers the creativity to make their wedding shots unique. For example, gather guests to spell out words or organize them in other fun, little ways. Also, the scope of distance that they capture means that a photographer on-the-ground does not need to run around trying to capture every moment. Let’s face it. A photographer is never going to be everywhere at once, capturing everything you would want. A drone adds a little more protection, capturing key moments such as the bride’s entrance or the married couple’s ceremony exit, nestled in among the sprawling landscapes around them. Perhaps unlike anything else, a drone can communicate the epic grandeur of everything around the ceremony while still being finely tuned to record the intimacy of key moments throughout the day.

Every person involved in the photography and videography of your wedding has a role to play. For example, an on-the-ground wedding photographer is oftentimes tasked with close-ups and getting their lenses fixed on the more intimate communications. For drones, these little machines can never get that close without being obnoxious, intrusive, and loud – also, it is very unsafe to be that close! Therefore, you want to keep in mind what you want the drone used for. The bigger moments that are not as close. For example, filming the walk and the couple meeting the officiant at the altar is sometimes all a drone photographer needs to capture within the limitations of the ceremony. Choosing where and when to use a drone is key, and having an experienced operator with you who has done weddings before might be able to provide some insight on how to best use drone photography to highlight your wedding.
