Filming weddings is certainly a difficult specialty, with a wide range of technical and creative challenges that require great skills and the ability to improvise too. Whether you are new to the job or a seasoned pro, this fantastic video features a filmmaker discussing seven lessons he has learned about how to film a wedding.
Coming to you from Parker Walbeck, this great video details seven lessons he has learned from filming weddings. Weddings are certainly a challenge for any creative: high-pressure scenarios that do not offer the chance for a do-over are sure to be difficult for anyone, and that is not even including the added pressure of trying to be creative on top of it all. One tip from Walbeck that I have always found particularly helpful is the importance of communicating with vendors. A wedding takes the work of a small army of vendors to be successful, and while your job is certainly incredibly demanding and difficult, so are theirs, and communicating can actually make things smoother for everyone involved. In fact, you might even find ways to make the day mutually easier for everyone involved. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Walbeck.
