How is it done technically?
Thanks to the advent of modern cameras, we can now shoot videos and photos at the same time – something which I tried for the first time back in 2015 and have never looked back. It’s the same camera, the same lens, and the same point-of-view, but I’m shooting high-resolution photos (up to 50 megapixels) and a wonderful HD video at the same time (4k option available). Not many photographers have yet embraced this new possibility – in fact, I’m one of the very few wedding photographers in Surrey offering wedding photography and wedding filming as a package. I will also bring an assistant who will operate three additional TV-quality cameras on tripods from a safe and unobtrusive distance. In a church, for example, we’d typically place a camera to the far left and right behind the altar (with long lenses) and one at the end of the aisle. These cameras would be filming continuously from all angles to make sure no moment is missed. They’re also small and light – perfect for fading into the background – and can be set up and packed away within minutes. The same technique is used to film the speeches, the cutting of the cake, and your first dance. This multi-camera capture allows me to create a compelling film for you in the edit, which I will present to you together with your photos. For the perfect sound, we use TV-quality wireless clip-on microphones plus discreetly placed room mics (for laughter, applause, etc).
Wedding Live Streaming
I now offer high-quality wedding live streaming of your wedding ceremony and speeches. My cameras are wirelessly connected to a video switcher unit which is directly connected to the internet, which makes it possible to share your special moments with your remote guests via a private HD wedding video live stream. Even if some of your guests cannot be physically present they will still be able to witness your vows in real-time via your own private wedding video stream. Please get in touch for more details about my wedding live streaming service.
