So...Many clients asked us...What exactly is Wedding Cinematography?
Wedding videography/cinematography is the art of documenting a wedding on film. Some couples may choose to use wedding cinematography only during the ceremony, while other couples may use it during the entire event, including the reception and any other pre- and post-ceremony activities. Good wedding cinematography will involve the proper use of lighting, various camera angles and solid editing. Suggest Edits While many people may have a friend with a video camera who offers to shoot the wedding, professional wedding cinematography will utilize several cameras and angles to capture as many parts of the wedding as possible. The various films will later be edited together by the wedding cinematographer or a member of his or her staff. Couples may want captions added to the video with the names of guests on the bottom, the name of the venue or different quotes about love. Much like professional wedding photography, the film editing process takes time, so the wedding video likely will not be ready until after the couple returns from the honeymoon. One thing that separates wedding cinematography from that friend with the video camera is lighting. It can be especially important when a wedding is held in a place with low light, such as a candlelit church. A wedding cinematographer typically will set up lighting to enhance the video quality, taking care not to ruin the atmosphere of the wedding venue and the mood sought by the couple by making it look too much like a movie set.
