Wedding videographers have become a popular option in the past decade. Advancements in technology have enhanced the quality of footage, and social media has provided an easy platform for people to share their videos with loved ones. As with any industry, it will continue to evolve every year. Below, are a few trends you’ll see in 2018.
4 Trends Your Wedding Videographer May Offer This Year
1. Drone Footage
Drones can produce stunning aerial footage compared to traditional equipment, giving couples a unique view of their ceremony. Those planning a wedding in the upcoming year should ask potential vendors about any drone equipment they have, as well as their experience using it.
2. Cinematic Effects
Advanced equipment like drones has made it possible for a wedding videographer to incorporate cinematic effects into the final product, including tilt shots, panned and tracking footage, zoom shots, and varying focal lengths. Although guests can capture short clips on their phones, a seasoned videographer will create a professional masterpiece.
3. Short Highlights
Although you may want a video that documents the ceremony and reception from start to finish, you may only share the highlights with friends and family. As a result, one of the latest trends is shorter filming sessions featuring shots of the day’s highlights, like the bride walking down the aisle, the first kiss, the first dance, the father/daughter dance, the cutting of the cake, and the champagne toasts.
4. Same-Day Editing
The rising popularity of short highlight reels has made it possible for wedding videographers to compile, edit, and return a video on the same day that they film it. When you turn to a professional who offers same-day editing, you and your new spouse don’t have to wait weeks or months to view footage of your beautiful wedding.
