Drones on the Wedding-day Wish Lists?

This wedding season, thanks to the growing trend of drone photography, love is going to new hights.

More couples are adding drones to their wedding-day wish lists to capture stunning aerial shots of their special day.

The bad: Drones are noisy and, in the wrong hands, potentially dangerous.

The good: Photography drones produce beautiful, cinematic aerial shots. These remote-controlled quadcopters offer a macro view of your wedding that no one gets to see.

If you’re considering wedding drone photography, heed these tips before taking flight.

  1. First, make sure drones are allowed in your venue’s area.

  2. Venues for drone photography are improtatnt. Not all are good locations.

  3. Drones are sometimes a good distraction.

  4. That being said: keep flight time to a minimum or shoot at a very high altitude.

  5. Consider the environment. Wide, open spaces are better.

  6. Higher is not always better. Shoot at an angle.

  7. Aerial shots take time to set up.

  8. For destination weddings, aerial footage can give your wedding video a good sense of the surrounding city.
