How To Film A Wedding: Behind The Scenes of Noah & Mal | Planning, Gear, Establishing Shots (Part 1)

Want to know how to film a wedding? This video series is going to show you exactly how I film a real wedding! In this video, you can come along to the wedding with my wife Rachel and I as we cover:

  • Pre-production/planning for the wedding
  • The EXACT gear that we use to film
  • How we film establishing shots of the venue and ceremony site (with a Phantom 4 Pro drone!).

You may remember my previous behind-the-scenes video that I made for the wedding trailer, and if not, you can watch those here:

And this is just part one! I have three more parts coming that will cover how we film every aspect of the wedding, from the bride and groom getting dressed and reading their notes, to our ceremony setup and camera locations, to the reception with the exact lighting and audio gear that we use. There was also a massive lightning storm that almost ruined the entire reception(!), so you’ll get to see how we handled that.
