How to Film A Wedding | Behind The Scenes of Not just in Love, in Joy with each other

Before you do anything else, watch the wedding trailer I created this BTS for: “Not just in Love, in Joy with each other“.

Now that you’ve done that, have you ever wanted to know how I film a wedding? I am so HUGELY EXCITED to share this video with you and it has been so hard to keep this a secret! I had a behind-the-scenes filmed of a real wedding that I filmed! This video will show you:

  • The gear I use to film a wedding.
  • Gobs of drone flying action!
  • My thought process behind creative shots.
  • How I handle things when a wedding reception nearly ends in disaster!
  • The exact lenses and camera settings I use in different situations.

I’ve been wanting to make this video for about a year and a half (ever since my first wedding filmmaker vlog!), so when my friend Noah told me he was getting married and asked me to film, I jumped at the chance to bring along my friend Paul Bailey and have him film a behind-the-scenes of Rachel and I as we filmed this wedding.

And just so we are clear, this is ONLY a behind the scenes of the wedding trailer, I have a much longer behind-the-scenes coming out soon, walking you through the ENTIRE wedding day from beginning to end. 🙂

And if you want to keep up with my Iceland photos, videos, and other behind-the-scenes stuff, follow me on Instagram. I also post a ton of video related things to my Facebook Page.

Shoutout to Grant Daniels Photography too for photographing this wedding and giving some great commentary in this video!
