7 Reasons Your Wedding Video Needs Drone Footage

Your wedding film should be extraordinary, capturing all the special moments from all possible angles and perspectives. How can videographers achieve this “wow” factor for their clients? The answer is drone wedding footage.

Why Does Your Wedding Need Drone Footage?

Have you ever sat in an airplane window seat just to look at the scenery while flying thousands of feet over rolling hills, sparkling waters, or lush gardens?

Now think — what if you could have the same aerial perspective for your wedding? Drone footage is no longer a luxury but an actual, accessible possibility that will uplift your wedding film and offer you views of your wedding you couldn’t possibly imagine!

Let’s look at a few of the top ways your wedding can benefit from a drone videographer.

1. It Gives You an Aerial View of Your Wedding Venue

Wedding drone footage is perfectly suited for filming majestic landscapes like mountain tops, valleys, vineyards, lakes, beach venues, and anything that offers large expanses.

An aerial take of your venue is almost impossible to grasp when on the ground. Your perception of your wedding shifts dramatically when it’s seen from above. The trees, flowers, bushes, water elements, paths, and buildings in your wedding venue look stunning from high above. The aerial views add depth to your footage and bring out the most spectacular aspects of your wedding.

Drone footage will make the most of your location, and an experienced drone pilot will know how to take full advantage of the light, perspectives, and weather conditions to take a video that will enhance your wedding film in a way you can’t imagine.

Sweeping, expansive grounds offer the perfect locations for wedding drone footage and epic shots. Wide-open spaces are challenging to capture on camera, but a drone will give you a bird’s eye perspective.

2. Drone Footage Captures Views No Human Can Reach

Unless your cinematographer can fly over hills and mountains or walk on water, there are some views that no human can reach simply because they aren’t accessible on foot.

A drone, however, sees everything from up to 400ft above ground. It can fly above hilltops, lakes, cliffs, rocks, fields, and the sea — capturing astonishing views that will make your wedding video look like a movie.

3. Drone Footage is Great for Unique Shots and Angles

Have you arranged for a spectacular firework display at the end of your wedding? Have you planned your wedding to coincide with the sun setting below the sea?

Discuss your plans with your cinematographer to arrange for drone footage of any breathtaking moments of your wedding. From up above, these beautiful occasions will take on a whole new meaning. If you think that fireworks look lovely from the ground, wait until you see them in the sky.

4. You Can Capture the Love from Above

Love, joy, and affection are overwhelming feelings worth capturing. Filming emotions and capturing people’s smiles and joy makes a cinematic wedding film feel authentic.

Here, too, wedding drone footage can enhance your wedding film by providing aerial takes of your loved ones from above. Due to the relative novelty of drone footage, people smile, wave, dance, and generally have more fun when in the presence of a drone. Their interaction adds value and joy to your wedding.

Likewise, you can organize an aerial view of a group of people forming a circle or a heart around the couple. You can even place your guests to make letters on the ground and film these from the drone. This could add a uniquely personal and loving touch to your wedding film.

5. Your Photographer and Cinematographer Can Work Together for Exceptional Shots

You can coordinate with your photographer to take drone shots of your guests during the portrait session. While your photographer is setting your guests for group photos, you can arrange for the drone to capture these moments for a special behind-the-scenes movie. Combining these two takes can give your wedding film some beautifully touching moments.

6. Catch the Special Moments Complemented by The Beauty of The Landscape

As for your guests, filming from above an embrace, kiss, smile, or tear gives them a whole new perspective. The cinematic aspect is elevated to a whole new level, creating your own romantic film.

Every wedding has special moments that capture the love between you and your loved one. The intimacy of your wedding stands in contrast to the wide landscape. It makes your love story more significant and poignant when set against such a background.

7. Drone Footage Is Simply Epic

Having an eye in the sky and filming your wedding from above makes for epic footage. However, you may wish to avoid filming the ceremony. Because of the drone noise, we strongly suggest using drone footage before the ceremony and after to give ample space and solemnity to your wedding ceremony.

You can still capture special moments from above to preserve the memories of your wedding in a different way. Wedding drone footage will add depth and varying perspectives to your special day.
