1. CHOOSE THE RIGHT DRONE

2. ADD VALUE WITH YOUR SHOTS
Your job as a wedding photographer or videographer is to tell the story of the couple, and you need to make sure to do it. Just like you will tell the story with photos or videos from the ground – your drone shots also need to add value to it.
3. BE READY & PRACTICE
Be time efficient. Get everything ready in advance and don't let the couple and the other photographer or videographer wait for you to set everything up. A wedding is not a place to experiment with your shots. So, practice in advance, come up with a plan of action before the wedding, and get there prepared.
