Story

The atmosphere at this wedding was everything. The couple knew from the beginning that their wedding was going to be a mix between a music festival and a family celebration. So immediately, when I saw the sunset over this amazing venue, I knew I wanted to capture it with my drone from a higher perspective, where such an incredible atmosphere would be seen in all its spectacularity.

I don’t normally take the drone out often, but I felt that at that moment it was necessary to capture all the things that were going on without distractions. The aerial shot allowed me to forget the more specific details and show everything that was happening in one shot.

The hardest part was definitely organizing the shot, setting up the drone and shooting as fast as possible because there was so much going on at the same time, and I didn’t want to miss anything that was happening on the ground.

Still, I learned that the best thing to do is to always take a little bit of time to do general shots like this. Mostly because they help tell a story and tell a narrative.
