Where to Find your Wedding Videographer

Where to Find your Wedding Videographer

To say that weddings are a business is a vast understatement. From flowers, to venues, yes…photographers and videographers, everyone seems to be willing to give you the day of your dreams…for a fee. But have you ever thought about where you’re finding these vendors at? Today there are tons of sites that offer you one stop shopping for your wedding vendors. From The Knot, to Wedding Wire, to WedPlan, these sites will give you access to wedding vendors from all over…but does being listed there really mean they are the pick of the litter?

GoPro Really Does Go Anywhere

GoPro Really Does Go Anywhere

About a year ago I bit the bullet and bought a GoPro HD Hero 2 with plans of using it in all sorts of situations. Sadly, it’s been collecting dust and really hasn’t seem much usage. A few test shoots here and there, but nothing to amazing. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oopPOkUpDQA Recently I’ve more time and really focused on getting the hang of it and it’s a great addition to Park’s Camera Packages. In doing weddings videography, I think we’re going to test it as a behind the scenes camera and to some time-lapse photography of brides and grooms getting ready and using it as an aerial camera in the church. Back in February, we taped the Subnotics at the Jazz Cafe in Wilkes-Barre for a concert and in hindsight it would have been a great overhead or even better over the drummer shot. They always seem to get lost in the back! It’s a great little camera and I’m happy I’ve got the time to finally realize...
