This is by far one of the most gorgeous drone videos I've ever seen. Shot in California by Adam Rubin of Kaveret, its elegance and narrative beauty make it stand far above the crowded playing field.
Though drones are primarily used for landscape and cityscape photography, I've begun to see them slowly make their way into the engagement and wedding photography field, where the unique perspective they afford can offer a way of taking in the extravagance of a wedding day that no other means can. This seems to have been just the wedding to show that capability off. Shot by the Pacific Ocean at the Pelican Hill Resort in Newport Beach, the aerial perspective really brings the beauty of the wedding and the surroundings into focus simultaneously in a way that photography from the ground simply wouldn't be able to achieve. I spoke with Rubin, and he mentioned the video was shot on his DJI Phantom 4 while flying completely manually.
Have you used drones in any of your wedding work? They surely present unique challenges in such a situation, but as Rubin has demonstrated, they can produce some beautiful and unique results. Be sure to follow him on Vimeo and Facebook!
