...GoodDay to You...
I am a wedding Videographer, before you start thinking that I am one of those dudes that hang heavy "coffin-like" camera on their shoulders looking like they just got depoted from Libya, I shoot weddings with DSLR HD camera, so the quality is High Definition like a Hollywood movie and some few NollyWood's too e.g Tinsel.....we .will continue this intro another day.

...So I am starting a thread about my experiences

nice one.. can't wait to read from you

...So I am just gonna randomly give my wedding experiences....

For beginners,
Let's say you have the opportunity of shooting a wedding and you want to leave a lasting impression in the eyes of your client and at the same time you want that job to serve as reference for prospective clients

There are certain things you should never ever miss out, else some bride might literally die on you ( believe me I have had such cases before) for ruining the most important day of life,so am gonna list them and try my possible best elaborating on each point

N:B I am going to skip the whole pre-church( the make up, getting dressed, going to church ish) episodes, I will take about that subsequently

(a) The Bridal walk down the aisle
When they start playing the song to usher in the bride, just leave everything you are doing and run if you have to the bride who would probably be at the entrance arms in arms with her daddy and also with the bridal train and little bride(s), get a shot of all of them together but if its gonna make you adjust your camera settings and you might not have time to readjust, just leave this and start from the church's entrance. Get a shot of d little bride(s), the bridal train and every other person that decides to walk in with the bride and then concentrate on the bride and her dad as they walk down the aisle, stand in front of them and backTrack as the walk in, get her expression and that of her dad's
N:B. If there is a second camera,let that focus on the groom as his bride-to-be walk down the aisle, close up shots are really good in such cases and if you can get him and the bride in the background too, then that's awesome

(b): The Joining and The "You may now Kiss the Bride
.....I believe this is the most important part, this is infact 'the reason why we are here"
When the priest calls the couple up the altar for the joining, pick the best position possible so you can get the faces of the couple and the priest, but if you can't get such position just focus on the couple
And when its time for the 'first' kiss, if you have to break the rule of the church to get this part, abeg, break it twice o!

(c) Signing of the Marriage Register
When the couple and their parents are called to sign the register, you better make sure you get a very good shot of them because some clients will eat you raw if this isn't in the video clip, I know some challenges will pop up here but breaking some rules won't hurt anyone just get the shot.

(d) The Couple's march out the church
This is another important aspect that you won't want not to be in footage, because your client would want to see the smile on their faces as they walk out of the church
waving at their guest and greeting whomever they wanna


(e) Other Important Parts
- The Priest's Message
- The Groom unveiling his bride
- People present at the Venue

....I usualy shoot with two or more cameras( depending on the client) so I am sure not to miss out on anything and at the same time getting my fancy and creative shots as well as my B-roll shots. And before I forget I am still learning, even J.J Abrams says he is still learning,so 'who I be' not to be learner?
