Make sure that your schedule will fall on a sunny or cloudy day because a rained or winded out day wont get you a chance to make use of the drone.
If you are hiring a drone for your wedding day, we will assume that you wont have too much wiggle room when it comes with the schedule.
If you are really persistent on hiring a drone operator for your event, there is somehow a way on how to go about it. If the rain will arrive in the morning, you can have your drone footage taken at night.
If you get lucky and the sun is out during the day, then there’s no problem. Both the sunrise and the sunset produce beautiful colors so it does not matter what time of the day you have your shots taken.
As soon as you have chosen a couple, discuss them with your drone operator and ask if they can achieve the specific shots you like. You can also ask the pilot for recommendations on the angles that will produce good aerial footage.
Let them do their job and do not demand a footage where it would be unsafe. If you do, there might be unpleasant consequences and you would not want that for your event, would you?
However if by any chance you would want a Hollywood-caliber video and pictures for your event, you would need to book a more expensive and sophisticated rig.
The high-end drones carry high-end cameras and they demand a high-end price as well. Check the portfolio of your aerial photographer and ask for the price of his or her packages.
Most of them also have discount rates for different type of shoots like on the day of the party, promotional videos or 3D modeling.
Make sure that you relay to your drone operator your preferences and you’ll be well on your way to making your event a huge success!
