Filming weddings is a real challenge. This helpful video shadows a wedding videographer throughout the day and shows off some great techniques and tips you can incorporate into your own shooting as he talks you through his process.
Shooting on the RED Weapon, the 1D X Mark II, Venus Laowa 12mm f/2.8, and the Canon 24-70mm f/2.8L II, Parker Walbeck's equipment is certainly no slouch, but the information contained within is really applicable to anyone. He walks us through how he composes shots, why he makes certain artistic choices, and more, all of which is coupled with the end result shown immediately after. Perhaps the most salient point (at least for me) was to overshoot: get multiple shots of each scene when possible and give yourself extra footage to play with in post. While you may have an idea of how you're going to edit together the story, you never know what happy accidents you might discover from having extra, plus you may save yourself if something goes wrong. By the end of the day, Walbeck went home with over 800 GB of footage, but it was well worth it, as you can see in the clips he shows above.
