Behind The Scenes Wedding Videography Melbourne
The bride and groom are the centre of attraction at a Melbourne wedding, no one is taking away from that. Increasingly my clients for wedding videography in Melbourne especially, are asking me for a BTS or ‘behind the scenes’ video of the wedding and other ceremonies.
This, as everybody from both the bride and grooms family and friends wants to be seen on camera. Also, there is lots going on like the decoration of the church and reception venues or other ceremonies where the bride and groom are not present that need to be captured on video for posterity as well.
A new trend also sees many a tech savvy couple actually buy up their own domain to upload all the pre-ceremonies plus the wedding and reception online especially for relatives who could not make it to be part of the ceremonies. BTS videos are one such effective way of filling everybody in with everything that has happened at the wedding that did not necessarily involve the bride and groom.
For instance among the special requests, I have gotten for behind the scenes wedding videography in Melbourne is a request to shoot the hair and makeup, the wardrobe of all the bride’s family including the bride’s mother sisters and bride maids. This as an interesting shoot as I go the witness first-hand what goes into being picture perfect beautiful at a wedding.
BTS wedding videography is a great add on at a wedding as you capture a variety of shots from different corners of the wedding that may feature the bride’s father in a reflective mood just before he takes the hand of his daughter to give her away. Or a moment where the best man checks preparations at the reception venue just before the bride and groom return from their customary drive. Or the friends of the bride and groom are captured on video as they crack a private joke with the newlyweds that makes for a happy moment all of them will remember forever. Wedding videography in Melbourne allows you to shoot a behind the scenes video to capture all of this and more. Emotional moment’s memories that will be remembered in time as the bride and groom celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary.
As a pro at wedding videography in Melbourne, this would mean that I would literally need to have a camera in every nook of the venue as well as at homes of the bride and groom before ceremonies. A tall order certainly but it’s not impossible. Today my team of wedding videographers have learnt to almost predict the hot spots in at a Melbourne wedding reception for instance. We know where the action is and someone from the team captures it. Yes, this does come at a price but there are many in Melbourne willing to pay for this added bonus to their regular Wedding Videography.
One little tip I’d like to share with all fellow companies involved in wedding videography in Melbourne keep one camera on ‘wide mode’ time lapse. For those who are not familiar with the term, it’s placing one camera and recording the complete event through it without shifting the camera stopping the recording. This camera will capture the complete ceremony which can then be fast forwarded on the edit table to give you a lovely passage of time video that can be inserted into you BTS clip to give it a lovely time effect.
The behind the scenes video is fast becoming an important add-on to wedding videography in Melbourne.
