Wedding Videography Checklist

Plan important scenes with our wedding video checklist

Shooting wedding videos is a huge responsibility that comes with a certain level of stress. The best way to reduce stress and capture everything couples want is to plan your photos and make sure you have the right equipment to shoot them at the right resolution.

Talk to participants to keep track of their activities so they can get to the right place at the right time. Work with them to make a list of important scenes and keep the list while filming the wedding.

At the end of the ceremony, there is only one first kiss. If you miss it, there is no replay. With good planning, you can capture the moments you need.

Traditional wedding video footage that should be part of your wedding video includes:

  • The groom is waiting at the altar.
  • Bride’s Entry Procession.
  • reading the oath.
  • First kiss as a couple.
  • recession.
  • first dance
  • cake cutting.
  • Throw a bouquet of flowers.
  • Father Daughter Dance.
  • Cheers to the best men and maids.

ready shot

A few photos can be taken while the wedding party is being prepared, but some photos, such as the groom fixing his boutonniers, require preparation (or proper timing).

Please find the following recordings before the event.

  • Bridesmaids prepare.
  • An exterior shot of a church or place.
  • A wide interior shot of a church or place.
  • altar.
  • flower.
  • wedding program.
  • The groom and the guide are hanging out.
  • Secure the groom in the buttonhole.

Ceremony

In general, a wedding is the most difficult part of a wedding to film. If possible, bring an assistant who can record from a second angle. For example, the face of the groom and the appearance of the bride walking down the hallway make for an interesting and heartbreaking scene.

Other parts of the ceremony to be filmed include:

  • Guests are guided through an aisle.
  • Guests sit down, read and talk about the program.
  • Family members enter the venue or church.
  • The father kisses the bride and hands her over to the groom.
  • Ceremony. Record everything when you have time and edit it later.
  • A must-have shot of the procession and entry of the bride and groom at the altar mentioned above, the first kiss and retreat.

reception

After a tough awards ceremony shoot, you can unwind and have a good time at the reception. In addition to the aforementioned scenes, look for the following opportunities:

  • An outside shot of the receiving station.
  • The guest signs the guestbook.
  • receiving line.
  • Champagne Toast.
  • Cocktail time.
  • The waiter distributes the food.
  • ice cubes.
  • table tag.
  • gift table.
  • Wide shot of reception room.
  • Close-up of a place setting.
  • party favors.
  • main point.
  • blessing.
  • First couple dance.
  • cake cutting.
  • Throw a bouquet of flowers.
  • Remove the garter.
  • Last dance of the evening.
  • Departure of newlyweds.

unexpected

We are also open to unexpected opportunities to capture the mood of the day with a list of ready-made recordings. Let the ring holder and the hotties giggle and play. Newlyweds, improvised (or planned) group dances, or glimpses between tears of joy from parents. These emotional moments add tremendously to your wedding video.

Remember, it’s your job to help the bride, groom and family relive those moments through the lens. It’s better to shoot too much and edit later. Honest and unexpected scenes are often the most valuable.

Let your assistants take fun photos of people laughing, dancing and celebrating with a loose group of guests that don’t appear in official wedding photos.

The scenes you are filming will outlive many situations and people at your wedding and will become increasingly special to the couple, so pay special attention to your elderly relatives, young children, and outside guests.

Remove duplicate or suboptimal recordings

The fun really starts when you edit all your footage into a wedding video that’s short enough to arouse interest, but captures all of the important, fun and affectionate moments of the couple’s special day. Cut out repetitive and boring scenes so you can focus on more meaningful scenes.

Wedding Videography Checklist

Plan the important shots using a wedding videography checklist

Shooting the video of a wedding is a big responsibility that comes with a level of stress. The best way to reduce the stress and capture everything the couple wants is to plan the shots and ensure you have the right equipment shooting at the right resolution.

Talk with the participants to get a feel for the timeline of the activities so you can be in the right place at the right time. Work with them to develop a list of important shots, and keep the list with you as you shoot the wedding.

Must-Have Wedding Shots

There’s only one first kiss at the end of the ceremony. If you miss it, there is no re-do. Good planning puts you in the right place to capture these must-have moments.

Traditional wedding video shots that should be part of every wedding video include:

Groom waiting at altar.
Processional with bride’s entrance.
Vow recital.
First kiss as married couple.
Recessional.
First dance.
Cake cutting.
Bouquet toss.
Father-daughter dance.
Best man and maid of honor toasts.
Preparation Shots

You can take a few shots as the wedding party prepares, but some, such as the groom pinning on his boutonniere, require some staging (or good timing).

Before the ceremony, look for these shots:

Bride and bridesmaids getting ready.
Exterior shot of the church or venue.
Interior wide shot of the church or venue.
Altar.
Flowers.
Wedding program.
Groom and ushers hanging out.
Pinning boutonniere on groom.
The Ceremony

Generally, the ceremony is the hardest part of the wedding to film. If possible, bring along an assistant who can record from a second angle. Views of both the groom’s face and the bride walking down the aisle, for example, make for interesting, poignant footage.

Other parts of the ceremony to shoot include:

Guests being escorted down the aisle.
Guests sitting, reading programs, and talking.
Family members entering the venue or church.
Father kissing the bride and handing her off to the groom.
The ceremony. Record it all if you have the space, and edit later.
The must-have shots mentioned previously of the groom at the altar, the processional and bride’s entrance, the first kiss and the recessional.

Exterior shot of reception site.
Guests signing guestbook.
Receiving line.
Champagne toast.
Cocktail hour.
Servers passing food.
Ice sculpture.

The Unexpected

Even with a prepared list of shots, be open to unexpected opportunities to capture the mood of the day. Watch for the ring bearer and flower girl to giggle or play. Record a glance between the newlyweds, a spontaneous (or planned) group dance, or the happy tears of a parent. These emotional moments add immensely to the wedding video.

Ingalls PhotoRemember: It’s your job to help the bride, groom, and families relive these moments through your lens. It’s better to film too much and edit later; the candid, unexpected shots are often the most treasured.

Task your assistant, if you have one, with capturing casual groupings of guests who won’t appear in the formal wedding photos and fun shots of people laughing, dancing and celebrating. 

The scenes you shoot will outlive many of the situations and people at the wedding and will become increasingly special to the couple, so pay special attention to elderly relatives, young children, and out-of-town guests.
Weeding Out Extraneous or Less-Than-Optimum Shots

The fun really begins as you edit all your footage down to a wedding video that is short enough to hold interest but still captures all the important, fun, and tender moments of the couple’s special day. Let the repetitive, dull shots go so that the more meaningful ones take full focus.
