To start, prioritize hiring local talent whenever feasible. The Sea to Sky region boasts a wealth of skilled professionals, ensuring you assemble an experienced team familiar with the technical nuances of our location, including the unpredictable nature of Mother Earth and various other elements.
Here are some technical considerations that can significantly enhance the work of your photographer and videographer:
Natural Light: Consider the source and direction of natural light at your venue. Opt for spaces with ample natural light, as it adds a soft and flattering touch to photos and videos.
Artificial Lighting: If your venue has poor lighting, work with your photographer and videographer to plan additional lighting setups. Professional lighting equipment can make a substantial difference in the quality of your visuals.
Audio Quality: * WE BELIEVE AUDIO IS THE MOST IMPORTANT ELEMENT FOR YOUR WEDDING FILM
Microphones: To ensure that your vows, speeches, and any important audio moments are captured clearly we will provide microphones for those speaking. This ensures that every heartfelt word is crystal clear in your wedding film.
Connect your videographer with your audio team: When your photographer and videographer are seamlessly plugged into the DJ system, the harmony between visual and auditory elements becomes extraordinary. Imagine the electric energy of the dance floor captured in high fidelity, the heartfelt speeches resonating with impeccable audio quality, and the unforgettable vows exchanged with pristine clarity. By integrating seamlessly with the DJ system, your visual storytellers can sync their craft with the pulsating heartbeat of the music, creating a cinematic experience that transcends the ordinary.
Background Noise: We have to be mindful of potential sources of interference or background noise. Inform your videographer about any ambient sounds that might affect audio quality, allowing them to make the necessary adjustments.
Mother Nature: Mother Nature is beyond our control, especially in the magnificent landscape of Whistler. If you're considering tying the knot on a glacier or during stormy weather, it's advisable to consider obtaining additional audio resources. Embracing this possibility can significantly enhance the storytelling aspect of your wedding, adding depth and authenticity to the narrative.
Unplugged Ceremony Consideration:
Guest Devices: If you prefer an unplugged ceremony, where guests refrain from using devices to take photos or videos, communicate this clearly. This ensures your professional photographer and videographer can capture the moments without distractions.
Photo and Film Permits:
Venue Policies: Check with your venue about any photography or filming restrictions. Some locations may require permits for commercial shoots, so it's crucial to sort out these details in advance. Aerial drone footage is part of our offering, and we hold a full license with Transport Canada. However, please note that if your venue is in close proximity to an airport, the ability to take off may be limited.
Timeline Coordination: * WE BELIEVE LIGHT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT ELEMENT FOR YOUR WEDDING ALBUM
Golden Hour Planning: Work with your photographer and videographer to schedule key sessions during the golden hour. This magical time just before sunset provides the perfect natural light for stunning visuals.
Seamless Transitions: Plan your timeline with smooth transitions in mind. This helps your photographer and videographer capture the day's events without feeling rushed, resulting in a more cohesive visual story.
Venue Visit: If possible, arrange a visit to the venue with your photographer and videographer before the big day. This allows them to assess the lighting conditions, acoustics, and any technical challenges, ensuring they come prepared on your wedding day.
Shot List Collaboration:
Must-Have Shots: Work together to create a comprehensive shot list. This ensures that your photographer and videographer capture all the essential moments that matter most to you.
Use inovative tools such as Pinterest: We are happy to create a new vision board together or you can share yours with us.
By addressing these technical aspects, you're not only making the job easier for your photographer and videographer but also setting the stage for a visually stunning and seamlessly captured wedding day.
