How To Film Bride & Groom Prep | BTS of Noah & Mal’s Wedding Film (Part 2)

Watch Part 1 of the BTS here!
This is how I film every aspect of the bride and groom getting ready on the wedding day. In this video, I cover:

  • How to easily get gorgeous lighting using available light sources
  • The exact audio setup I use for crispy letter reading audio
  • Fancy prism trick shots for in-camera effects
  • Techniques to make even small or ugly rooms look amazing on camera.

Plus every single lens, focal length, aperture, and ISO detail is right on the screen for you to follow along! And remember, this is just part two, I’ll be releasing two more parts that cover every part of how I film a wedding ceremony and reception.
