The Creation Of A Modern Wedding Video

Wedding videography is no longer the boring handycam crap it was a few years ago. Visual Masterpiece takes us behind the scenes on their latest wedding video and gives us fantastic details into what it really takes to produce a video at this level. Shooting the footage itself is hard, but the editing is really what makes their videos shine.

Great stuff! Thanks for sharing!

Awesome BTS video.

Really cool video. It's so different doing a video instead of photographing a wedding. If I see how much work it is I think I'll stick to photograpy ;)
Keep up the good work!

Fantastic post! I love seeing the BTS Video shoots that come up every once in awhile. It's very foreign for me to think of my 5D as a video camera, but when I see things like this, it makes me wonder why I don't try to play with it in that light... maybe it's the extra gear that puts me off... though I love Steadicam stuff, and to be honest, there are some home-made DIY remedies for Steadicam shots that seem to do a perfectly reasonable job for the hobbyist. Great post as always FStoppers, looking forward to seeing some more from these guys in the future!

I thought these videos were awesome. The commentary was a great job. :-) Best of luck with all your future endeavors.

Great take on the BTS video, I love realtime breakdowns. Wedding videos are becoming a major production these days.

these guys are very talented, and i liked the video, but i have a much different approach to wedding videos. they seemed to stage a lot of shots, which i almost never do. also, do the still photogs get angry at these guys for constantly running around the couple with their glidecam? i'm a lot less obtrusive than these guys must be-- i'm not saying its necessarily a good thing, because these guys do get killer shots from it. i just try to document the day while making myself as unnoticeable as possible. great video though.

superb stuff, thanks for sharing.

Wow, thanks for sharing that video! I have never done a wedding video (I mostly do narrative shorts and films). I'm relieved to see you are using some run-n-gun and filmmaking techniques to shoot the video. Makes me a lot more confident I can do a wedding video my way if someone asks! -Jonathan

Really great work but I was wondering what the budget was on this since you put in so much time, used lots of high end equipment, and was able to create supportive B-roll. Do you have a bottom line on your budget requirements and, if so, how would you minimize the shoot to match a smaller budget?

Nice work Visual Masterpiece, thumbs up from this wedding videographer

Thanks for the post and kind words - we are happy you enjoyed this bts piece. I wanted to reply to bill - these brides are serious but the higher end market is obviously not the majority. This was a destination event, bride paid all expenses plus the shooting day rate. Our prices for local events begin at $4200 usd and go up from there. Just like with photos getting in front of the right clients takes work and forethought.

Oh wow! I am super proud to say that Rebecca goes to my church.


This is awesome!

 Thanks for sharing. Keep it on my list.

my question is: how do you license a popular song like that? I've only gone through sites that do that for you (like
