How To Film A Wedding Ceremony

One of the questions I’m asked most often is, “Matt! How do you film a wedding ceremony?!”, and today I’m going to answer that question in the most detailed video I’ve ever made on the subject!. In this video, I cover:

  • Angles I use to make it look like you’re capable of time travel and teleportation during a wedding ceremony.
  • How many cameras you’ll need to cover everything (it’s less than you think)
  • Where I stand to NEVER have photographers get in my shots.
  • Ways to get amazing shots while being unobtrusive (no need to block anyone’s view)

And you’ll also get all my camera, lens, aperture, and ISO details listed with every shot I use.

In case you haven’t seen it yet, you can watch Noah and Mal’s wedding film for this Behind The Scenes.
